"[ots-dev] Stamp/Beacon Trees for Secure, Precise, Trusted Timestamping and Clock Synchronization" - https://lists.opentimestamps.org/pipermail/ots-dev/2021-January/000106.html
tl;dr: My new merkle tree construction combines the precision of NTP, and the security of Roughtime. And unlike either, it can be scaled arbitrarily with untrusted servers.
Added to the #OpenTimestamps protocol, it'd allow one service to provide both high accuracy, trusted time, and trustless, low-accuracy, Bitcoin timestamps. A one-stop-shop for all your timing needs.
‘Perhaps Lucy, a student midwife, summed it up best: “Throughout our training we are taught bodily autonomy and consent is vital. I’m not sure I want to be part of an organisation that will discard that”.’
"Never before in the history of the Federal Republic have there been demonstrations that are more widespread than in the last few weeks,” states the report, with the government counting 1,046 separate protests involving around 188,000 participants."
"Full stop right here. Any public policy measure – from vaccine passports to discrimination – cannot be justified under the science, even if one’s conscience is OK with apartheid."
The #1 reason why they're pushing so hard to get everyone to get vaxxed is probably to make data like this go away by getting rid of the control group.
"The ‘healthy vaccinee’ effect turned up again in a study published in Science ... survival rates among over 65s were higher among vaccinated individuals who tested positive than among unvaccinated individuals who tested negative"
Rwandans report being forcibly vaccinated
Not just fined. Handcuffed by police and physically forced.
"Mach-E Thermal System Nightmare"
Really interesting point made in this video: inefficient plumbing is heavy not just because of the weight of the pipes. But also because the fluids inside the pipes are heavy!
““Do we need some sort of, almost, qualification, licensing, education for men to go out into the social sphere?”
He added: “People would say, is that an impingement on our rights of free movement? And we’ve obviously all been through this through Covid.””
Allowing your rights to be taken away for "emergencies" gives them ammo to take them away again.
"Pianoteq is an award-winning virtual instrument which you can install on your computer (PC/Mac). It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and will even run on some ARM-based boards such as the Raspberry Pi. It can be used both in standalone mode and as an instrument plug-in in VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts."
TFW you run into a random product with Linux support.
The crazies are now trying to tie rejection of zero covid to eugenics:
"The solution cannot be that everyone has to get COVID. That is eugenics because many disabled high risk people will die ... Do not buy into this eugenic thinking that expects the most vulnerable to be sacrificed."
Tough. Sometimes life sucks. We're not sacrificing everyone else in a hopeless attempt at protecting you.
#MeToo Comes For Martin Luther King - The American Conservative
Worth reading: "It will be incredibly – and rightly – hard for the US to back away from the celebration of Dr. King, to cancel or rename the Martin Luther King holiday, to rename the Martin Luther King avenues, to demolish the Martin Luther King monument in the Mall, and so on. And perhaps – just perhaps – this might lead to some on the Left rethinking their opposition to other iconic figures of the past."
Why Won't They Release the Data on Child Deaths Following Covid Vaccination? – The Daily Sceptic
"All we want is honest disclosure of the figures so that parents can make an informed decision."
"After reviewing the evidence, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recommended against vaccinating 12-15-year-olds, but were overridden by the [UK govt]."
Sounds to me like children are being vaccinated without meaningful consent. A very serious crime.
