    The world must stand in solidarity with Hong Kongers after Beijing imposed a sweeping national security law on the semi-autonomous city, prominent democracy activist Joshua Wong says. "We still have to let the world know that now is the time to stand with Hong Kong," Wong tells reporters outside a court where he and fellow activists are being prosecuted for involvement in last year's democracy protests.

    "My personal safety is not guaranteed anymore", says Hong Kong democracy activist Joshua Wong. The 23-year-old is the city's most high-profile political dissident, but since Beijing imposed a new security law on Hong Kong in July, Wong has been left wondering how long it will be before the police's new national security unit comes for him.

  • Computer Users As Much To Blame As Hackers For The Mess We're In

    When cyber security professionals converged in Las Vegas last week to expose vulnerabilities and swap hacking techniques at Black Hat and Defcon, a consistent theme emerged: the internet is broken, and if we don’t do something soon, we risk permanent damage to our economy. In his Black Hat keynote speech, tech security guru Dan Kaminsky said, “Half of all Americans are backing away from the net due to fears regarding security and privacy." According to The Guardian, Kaminsky and other speakers said the global cybersecurity threat is made up of a combination of users' failure to back up data, users clicking on virus-laden links and downloading rogue files bursting with malware, and increasingly sophisticated cyber-criminals who use ransomware to turn ordinary people and companies into ATM's. Kaminsky called for a federal agency devoted to security issues, similar to the National Institutes of Health, that can “create engineering solutions to the real-world security problems that we have”. He said, "It can’t just be two guys. I need a pile of nerds to be able to work for on this 10 years. We can support health and energy and roads and cars, but somehow we can’t support the thing that is driving our economy right now? That’s crazy.”

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
