Don't tell your doctor anything lest it be used against you...

British Government proposes Orwellian scheme to connect up people's health records with data snooped from their social media use to nag them about their health


Link Here 8th October 2018

People's medical records will be combined with social and smartphone surveillance to predict who will pick up bad habits and stop them getting ill, under radical government proposals.

Matt Hancock, the health secretary, is planning a system of predictive prevention, in which algorithms will trawl data on individuals to send targeted health nags to those flagged as having propensities to health problems, such as taking up smoking or becoming obese.

The creepy plans have already attracted privacy concerns among doctors and campaigners, who say that the project risks backfiring by scaring people or being seen to be abusing public trust in NHS handling of sensitive information.

 

 

Jewish groups outraged by Thai Hitler themed hotel room...

But of course Thailand has just about zero interest in European history and simply doesn't know who Hitler was, nor what Nazi symbols stand for

A Thai sex hotel has sparked 'outrage' with Nazi-themed rooms decorated with swastikas and huge murals of hitler overlooking bed

The Communist room is one of the largest at Villa Love Hotel near Bangkok, Thailand, and is said to be extremely popular with swingers and randy groups looking for sordid orgies. The Communist room at Love Villa Hotel has been condemned by Jewish communities

Efraim Zuroff from the Simon Wiesenthal Center - an international campaign group in Los Angeles - said:

This is truly awful. It's horrendous, absolutely disgusting. It shows a complete lack of knowledge and education about Hitler, the harm he cause and the horrifying crimes that he committed in World War Two.

This is a problem throughout Asia and unfortunately I'm not at all surprised by it. Frankly, the Thai government needs to be a lot more active in preventing this kind of thing and there's no reason why they shouldn't be.

And from my knowledge of Thailand I can confirm that Thais indeed have a complete lack of knowledge and education about Hitler, the harm he cause and the horrifying crimes that he committed in World War Two. So are certainly not guilty of knowingly setting out to outrage anybody.

Abraham Cooper, a Rabbi from California whinged:

There's no excuse in the age of Wikipedia for someone to not know that Hitler was one of the worst monsters of history.

This hotel is outrageous and beyond the pale. The rooms needs to be painted over immediately and the Thai government needs to take instant action if the country wants to be taken seriously as a tourist destination.

I rather suspect that Europeans are equally unknowledgeable and unsympathetic about some of the monsters that have massacred people in Asia over the years.

 

 

Justice not seen to being done...

Rank and file police in the UK are frustrated about being assign to sort out internet insults rather than burglary


Link Here 24th September 2018

The new head of the Police Federation John Apter, who represents 120,000 rank and file officers across England and Wales, has said his members were incredibly frustrated because they have been assigned to sorting out social media spats rather than tackling more serious crimes like burglary.

The new head explained that while resourcing remained the main issue facing policing, there was also a lack of common sense when it came to priorities.

Last week it emerged that Yorkshire Police had asked people to report insults on social media, even if they were not considered to be a hate crime. Other forces have been criticised recently for using computer programmes rather than experienced officers to decide whether a burglary is worth investigating. Such initiatives have led to criticism of the police and the observation that the service is out of touch with the public.

But Apter said nobody was more frustrated than police officers when they were prevented from attending burglaries and other serious crimes. Burglary is one of the most intrusive, horrible crimes that a householder can go through. It makes you feel incredibly vulnerable, but people can sometimes wait days for a police response, Apter said.
