this pressed-for your right to information: Flash – EU anti-trust chief slams ‘irrational’ views towards Google – France 24

Google is the most widely used search engine with a market share of over 90% in most European countries, according to preliminary findings by the European Commission

Google is the most widely used search engine with a market share of over 90% in most European countries, according to preliminary findings by the European Commission

The EU’s top anti-trust official sharply criticized the “irrational” response by European politicians to the Brussels investigation of search engine giant Google, a report said on Thursday.

“Google has provoked a lot of emotions and in some cases … some kind of irrational emotions,” EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia told the Wall Street Journal.

Critics of Google see “this leviathan that will eliminate all our freedoms, all our privacy, all our rights and I think it isn’t logical,” he said.

Google is being investigated by the European Commission in response to complaints that its search engine, the world’s biggest, was squeezing out competitors in Europe.

Google and Almunia have made three attempts to resolve the dispute, but in each case intense pressure by national governments, Internet rivals and privacy advocates scuppered the effort.

Almunia, who steps down at the end of the month, told the newspaper he regretted the investigation had been muddied by politics.

“Immigrant Song”

Ah, ah,

We come from the land of the ice and snow,

From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.

The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,

To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you’d better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

CALENDAR ORTODOX — SFINTII ZILEI VIETILE SFINTILOR — SINAXAR 10 August


Sinaxar 10 August

În aceasta luna, în ziua a zecea, pomenirea Sfintilor Mucenici Lavrentie (Laurentiu) arhidiaconul, Xist (Sixt), papa Romei, si Ipolit.

Lavrentie arhidiaconulSfântul Sixt (sau Xist) era grec din nastere si studiase filozofia la Atena inainte de a veni sa se instaleze la Roma sub domnia imparatului Valerian in vremea pontificatului Sfântului Stefan I (253-257, praznuit la 3 august). Mai intii favorabil crestinilor, imparatul – care cazuse sub influenta magilor si ghicitorilor egipteni dupa o nefericita expeditie in Orient – publica un edict interzicând practicarea in public a cultului crestin si cerea tuturor clericilor sa se inchine zeilor, amenintându-i cu exilul in caz contrar. Sfântul Stefan fusese una dintre primele victime ale acestei persecutii iar Sixt fu consacrat pentru a-i succeda. Persecutia spori atunci si fu decretata executia Episcopilor, Preotilor si Diaconilor in baza simplei constatari a identitatii lor, in timp ce laicii urmau sa fie condamnati injosirii si muncilor fortate. Sfântul Sixt fu atunci arestat si condus, dupa un prim interogatoriu, la renumita inchisoare Mamertine (n. tr. : unde au fost inchisi si Sfintii Apostoli Petru si Pavel). Pe drum, Arhidiaconul sau Lavrentie il intâlni si ii spuse in lacrimi : “Unde te duci, Parinte, fara fiul tau ? Ce jertfa te pregatesti sa aduci fara Diaconul tau ? M-ai gasit cumva nedemn de aceasta ? Vei refuza tu sa-ti fie alaturi pentru a-si varsa sângele pe cel pe care l-ai primit intru Sfintele Taine ?”. Episcopul ii raspunse : “Nu fiule, nu te parasesc, dar lupte inca si mai mari te asteapta. Noi, ca batrânii, ne-am angajat intr-o lupta usoara. Dar pe tine, tânar viguros, te asteapta o victorie si mai plina de glorie asupra tiranului. Nu mai plânge. Peste trei zile Diaconul ii va urma Preotului”. Si inainte de a-i da sarutul pacii, ii incredinta administrarea in numele sau a bunurilor Bisericii. Lavrentie isi indeplini pe data sarcina dupa voia lui Dumnezeu, impartind bogatiile Bisericii la clerici si la saraci. Pe muntele Coelius intâlni o vaduva, ce se numea Domnita, care ascundea pe multi crestini. Profita de intunericul noptii pentru a le aduce bani si haine si trecea apoi din casa in  casa, vindecând pe bolnavi si spalând picioarele credinciosilor, asemeni Domnului.

Cum Papa fusese condamnat sa i se taie capul pe Via Appia, Sfântul Lavrentie ii iesi in cale si ii striga : “Nu ma lasa, Parinte Sfânt, pentru ca am impartit deja comorile pe care mi le-ai incredintat”. Auzind vorbindu-se de comori, soldatii il prinsera imediat si pe Lavrentie si il dusera in fata tribunului Partenius care il instiinta pe imparat. Aruncat in inchisoare si dat in paza tribunului Ipolit, Sfântul Lavrentie vindeca prin rugaciunea sa si aduse la credinta pe un orb numit Lucillus. Auzind vestea, alti numerosi orbi alergara la el si fura cu totii vindecati de catre sfânt, care in plus il boteza pe Ipolit impreuna cu celelalte nouasprezece persoane ce se aflau in casa lui…(continua aici)

The native form of this personal name is Dohnányi Ernő. This article uses the Western name order.

Ernő Dohnányi

Ernő Dohnányi (Hungarian: [ˈɛrnøː ˈdohnaːɲi]; July 27, 1877 – February 9, 1960) was a Hungarian conductor, composer and pianist. He used a German form of his name, Ernst von Dohnányi, on most of his published compositions. The “von” implies nobility, and, according to the biography by his third wife, his family was ennobled in 1697 and given a “seal,” which she describes in some detail.[1]

Security firm Avast purchased 20 used Android devices on eBay and managed to recover the previous owners’ data from at least some of them, including emails, text messages, Google searches, and 40,000 photos—more than 1,000 of which featured the subject in various states of undress. Google responded to the report, saying that the phones in question are older models that do not reflect current Android protections, but security researchers caution that the only way to fully protect your data on any device is to destroy it entirely.

Cuvinte, cugetare poetica de George-B

Am deschis sertarul de cuvinte
Si-n gramada amestecata am cules
La intamplare,
cu maini avide de… cuvinte

alunecoase,
grele,
fierbinti
fulgeratoare
ude
sarate
amare
albastre
negre
cenusii
neajutorate
la intamplare
cele mai multe s-au scurs
printer degete, ca nisipurile fine ale plajii Mamaiei…
Am asezat cuvintele ce n-au fugit
Si-am contruit o casa de cuvinte,
Si-am folosit ca armature seara far-de luna
Iar drept coperis am pus de straja firmamentul
Fiind foarte obosit, dupa asa de multa munca-am
Adormit, in casa de cuvinte,
avand drept coperis…tot firmamentul

European Court Upholds “Right to be Forgotten”

It is said that “time heals all wounds.” Not so in the age of the Internet. Nowadays, one’s missteps are forever just a click away for all the world to see, but perhaps not for long. The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled in favor of a man who sued Google for continuing to include news about the 1998 repossession of his home in searches for his name despite the fact that he has long since overcome his financial troubles. The ruling sets an important precedent regarding the “right to be forgotten” and could mean that Internet companies will now have to remove inadequate, irrelevant, outdated, or excessive personal information from search engine results.

Computer experts have discovered a major security flaw in the popular Web encryption program OpenSSL that makes servers running it vulnerable to data theft byhackers. The scope of this problem is considerable; about two-thirds of Web servers rely on OpenSSL, and thevulnerability—appropriately dubbed Heartbleed—had gone undetected for about two years. Because the issue is rooted in server software, there is little consumers can do to protect their information until the sites they frequent upgrade their software. Many major Web firms have already taken steps to secure user data, but experts say it could be years before all affected sites and devices are updated. More… Discuss
