Gezichtsherkenning is het einde van de argeloosheid


Maxim Februari (NRC)

(...) Binnenkort worden foto’s van alle Europeanen toegankelijk voor de Europese autoriteiten om door te spitten met behulp van gezichtsherkenningssoftware. Tot nu toe regelde het Prüm-Besluit, een raadsbesluit van de EU, dat vingerafdrukken, DNA-gegevens en kentekens automatisch mogen worden gedeeld tussen EU-landen. Nu komen daar foto’s van alle burgers bij.

Dat natuurlijk vanwege de strijd tegen terreur. Europese burgers denken nogal eens dat die befaamde ‘war on terror’ van president Bush wordt gevoerd door vreemde mogendheden in verre woestijnen. Het wil nog niet goed doordringen dat we er middenin zitten. De oorlog tegen terreur wordt gevoerd op Europese pleinen en stranden, in Europese straten en velden, op basis van camerabeelden, met alle Europese burgers als verdachten.

Er is geen enkele aandacht voor. Er is geen democratisch debat over gevoerd. (...)

Biometrische identificatie op afstand bedreigt onze fundamentele rechten en vrijheden; en wel zodanig dat ze het bestaan ervan in gevaar kunnen brengen, zeggen de European Data Protection Board en de European Data Protection Supervisor. De voordelen wegen niet op tegen de gevaren, zegt de directeur van Amnesty in Oostenrijk, waar het ministerie van Binnenlandse Zaken heeft toegegeven dat gezichtsherkenning is ingezet bij demonstraties. „We betalen een enorme prijs.”

Welke prijs? Het einde van de anonimiteit. Het einde van de argeloosheid. (...) Zo gauw het Prüm-Besluit eenmaal is aangepast, ben je nooit meer onbespied. Nooit meer. Nooit meer.

I started watching Capitani. Guess what? There's a murder in a small European town that the local cops aren't equipped to handle, so an outside investgator is sent in to solve it, but he has some nebulous past connection to this place and also is battling his inner demons, and also everyone in town is hiding a secret that makes them seem guilty. It takes place in Luxembourg this time, though. Refreshing!

Große Wollbiene


(Anthidium manicatum)
Indiana, USA – Juli 2020

Diese Solitärbiene stammt aus Europa und wurde Mitte des letzten Jahrhunderts in den USA eingeschleppt. Seither verbreitet sie sich in Nordamerika und gilt als invasive Art.

Das auf den Fotos abgebildete Männchen hat sein Territorium in einer Ecke unseres Gartens, die von Woll-Ziest (Stachys byzantina) bewachsen ist. Neben Nektar und Pollen liefert diese Pflanze auch Wolle, die von den Weibchen für den Bau der Brutzellen verwendet wird.

Why are #Google and #Apple dictating how #European #democracies fight #coronavirus?


Ieva Ilves

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jun/16/google-apple-dictating-european-democracies-coronavirus
In the long run, however, this poses a far more fundamental question: how much can the decisions of sovereign democratic countries be overruled by technology companies?

The insidious ideology pushing us towards a Brexit cliff-edge


George Monbiot (The Guardian)

For neoliberal zealots, no deal represents a great opportunity to dramatically reshape Britain.

At first sight it’s incomprehensible. Why risk everything for a no-deal Brexit? Breaking up their own party, losing their parliamentary majority, dismantling the UK, trashing the economy, triggering shortages of food and medicine: how could any objective, for the Conservative and Unionist party, be worth this? What good does it do them?

Yes, some people will benefit. To judge by recent donations to the Conservative party, some very rich people approve of Boris Johnson’s policies. A no-deal Brexit might favour hedge funds that thrive on uncertainty, financiers seeking to short the pound, vulture capitalists hoping to mop up cheap property if markets collapse. But the winners are likely to be greatly outnumbered by the losers, among whom are many powerful commercial interests. (...)

The Brexit ultras in government are not just Brexit ultras. They are neoliberal ultras, and Brexit is a highly effective means of promoting this failed ideology. It’s the ultimate shock doctrine, using a public emergency to justify the imposition of policies that wouldn’t be accepted in ordinary times. (...)

Neoliberalism is the ideology developed by people such as Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. (...)

It was embraced by Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and most subsequent governments. They sought to implement the doctrine by cutting taxes, privatising and outsourcing public services, slashing public protections, crushing trade unions and creating markets where markets did not exist before. The doctrine was imposed by central banks, the IMF, the Maastricht treaty and the World Trade Organization. By shutting down political choice, governments and international bodies created a kind of totalitarian capitalism.

It has failed on its own terms, and in many other ways. (...)

The new politics that Boris Johnson’s government represents incorporates both neoliberalism and the reaction to it. (...)

Johnson uses neoliberal framing to justify his attacks on public safety. He wants to pull down environmental standards, create free ports in which businesses can avoid tax and regulation, and strike a rapid trade deal with the United States that is likely to rip up animal welfare rules and threaten the survival of the NHS. (...)

The creation of emergency is the inevitable destination of an absolutist, failed system. But emergency also provides the last means by which the failed system can be defended and extended.

Posted @withrepost • @do_you_care_about_earth_ May 9th 2019, the day Ireland declared a climate and biodiversity emergency💚✊🏽 Although this is a huge achievement, there were only 9 TD’s at the Dáil debate today. This shows that our government still isn’t taking this emergency seriously so we must continue to strike and make our government take action🌍🌎🌏 #repost #fridaysforfuturegalway #fridaysforfuture #climateemergency #voteforclimate #voteforfuture#people #togetherforfuture #climateelection #europe #european #europeanelections #fridaysforfuture #climatestrike #gretathunberg #nettonull #climatestrike #gretathunberg #nettonull #strike #nocarbon #nature #environment #europe #schoolstrike4climate #politics #innovation #sustainablegoods #act #actionsspeaklouderthanwords

Inside Jubilee (Jubilejní) Synagogue - # 2


Also known as Jerusalem Synagogue (Jeruzalémská synagóga).

This is another look inside of Jeruzalémská synagoga - a building that is quite unique in form and colors, outside and in. Here you see the 2 tablets of the Ten Commandments, and the stained-glass Star of David within the classic Gothic ceiling.

Rescued/Re-located from Google+ Collection - R.I.P. April 2019

My own Prague gallery - where you can click/tap on photos or links for a self-guided tour - is at http://www.fenichel.com/prague
