16960 Millions would be put at risk in a cashless society, research warns
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/19/millions-would-be-put-at-risk-in-a-cashless-society-research-warns.html


>A new "Access to Cash" study released on Wednesday warned that the U.K. risks drifting into a cashless society that could handicap those who are poor or in debt, disabled people, rural families and anyone who may be at risk of having their finances controlled by an abuser.

>The report, which surveyed 2,000 people and charities, said: "Many are struggling to participate in our digital society. If we sleepwalk towards a cashless economy, we'll leave millions behind."

I see a lot of people like you fearing for what might happen, but the reality is we're already there.

If the government wants to track you, they already are, and they have been for decades. It's admittedly made easier by new technology, but if MI5 want to know where I'm spending my cash, they'll sharp find out. Your phone, your face, your fingerprints, it's all easy enough to track even by a private company, let alone the government.

We're long past the point of being able to fly under the radar. I'd be surprised if there wasn't already a social/criminal score tied to my name in a computer in a basement somewhere in London.

I wouldn't say that is precisely what worries me, any debate over direct surveillance was over the day we allowed CCTV everywhere. Now it's just normal and people would be more likely to get mad over not enough data being available.

Instead what worries me is how passive this is all becoming and the danger of interlinking data as a means of social control or even re-personalisation of society. So far we've had a society of increasing anonymity after centuries of every moraliser in the village knowing your business but that's changing and I think this thread is already illustrative of how people will accept things out of simple convenience. Nothing can seemingly be done about it as an individual and indeed, you better be a good boy now or things could get painful for you and everyone who associates with you. I'd probably even have a good score but as a paranoid weirdo who just wants to be left alone it bothers me.

This is pretty much the reality we live in.

China has simply taken it a step further by being quite open about it and admitting to a full-on social scoring system. But that doesn't mean countries like the UK have nothing at all of this sort. It's just kept more hidden from view because obviously it goes against the core principles of a free democratic country as we are led to believe we still live in.

It's already there, think of knobheads offing themselves because of 'likes' - or lack of such - on social media. In less extreme cases, falling into depressive states for the same reason.
The banks have extensive profiles on people. I've seen one - just a casual glance - it wasn't pretty.
Add nosey employers/HRs that sort of vet potential candidates on social media.

Many moons ago I paid a visit to one of the local prisons on behalf of the company I'd worked for at that time.
Even if I expected it I was still amazed by the amount of cameras over that place.
Now when I walk through the city I just can't help and notice CCTV everywhere, and I always remind myself of that grim place.
It's ludicrous.

In that case, they weren't going to survive life's harsh realities in the first place.

When I was a lil un, nobody ever really wanted me on their team when we were playing a bit of footie in the neighbourhood playground after school. I was very honestly shit at it, and have been all my life. But that didn't mean I was unaware of the rejection that was going on there.

Was I going to off myself at age ten because of it? No, not really. I also never really thought about offing myself when I applied for jobs and a good few companies declined to even invite me for an interview. I also never considered doing something bad to myself whenever a girlfriend dumped me.

So again, if you can't deal with people not "like"ing you on the Internet, then you are simply unfit for a normal adult life, where rejection will almost be the norm.

>The calorie content of meals in UK restaurants is "excessive" and sit-down restaurants are unhealthier than fast-food chains, BMJ research suggests.

>Health experts say meals should not exceed 600 calories, but in this study they averaged 1,033 in restaurants and 751 in fast-food chains. University of Liverpool researchers analysed thousands of meals from places like Hungry Horse and McDonald's. They said their findings were a cause for concern. The research team looked at more than 13,500 meals on the menus of 21 sit-down restaurants and six fast-food chains. By using online company information on calorie content, only one in 10 meals was classed as healthy or fewer than 600kcal, as recommended by Public Health England. And nearly half of the meals contained 1,000kcal or more.

>Sit-down restaurants were five times more likely to offer high-calorie meals of 1,000kcal or more than fast-food restaurants, the research found. Dr Eric Robinson, lead researcher from Liverpool's department of psychological science, said the results were "shocking" but probably underestimated the calories consumed in restaurants. "We don't know about energy intake but 'plate clearing' is a common behaviour. Our analysis did not include drinks, starters, desserts or side orders."

>Hungry Horse restaurants had the highest average meal calorie content of 1,358kcal. Chains including Flaming Grill, Stone House and Sizzling Pubs were not far behind, with an average of 1,200kcal per meal. KFC topped the fast-food list with an average of 987 calories per meal offered. Burger King, McDonald's and Subway were around 700kcal.

>Even when the study compared similar meals, the energy content in restaurant meals was greater. Burger meals in restaurants contained an average of 414kcal more energy than burger meals in fast-food chains, while salad meals in restaurants had 142kcal more energy than fast food salads. Dr Robinson said portion size, the ingredients used and cooking methods could explain the difference, but he said the food industry had to make changes. "It's really clear what the food industry need to do. They need to act more responsibly and reduce the number of calories that they're serving." The government is currently consulting on a plan to introduce mandatory labelling in restaurants, takeaways and cafes, which is likely to finish in the new year.

>Kate Nicholls, chief executive of trade association UKHospitality, said restaurants, pubs and other hospitality businesses were already taking action to reduce calories and offer healthier dishes - but there were costs to consider too. "Proposals to shrink the size of dishes or cap calories would be yet another burden for hard-pressed operators to absorb, resulting in prices going up and investment in businesses going down; inevitably negatively impacting the overall customer experience."

>Dr Robinson said research showed that meals eaten out of the home contained more calories and with more people having restaurant food delivered to their homes using online services, the problem could be getting worse. The study relied on information provided online by restaurant chains on calorie content. Very few provided calorie labelling on their menus. The researchers said it was possible the fast-food sector was now offering more lower-energy meals and healthier options, after pressure from campaigners to do so.

16782 UK police wants AI to stop violent crime before it happens
https://www.newscientist.com/article/2186512-exclusive-uk-police-wants-ai-to-stop-violent-crime-before-it-happens/

>As for exactly what will happen when such individuals are identified, that is still a matter of discussion, says Donnelly. He says the intention isn’t to pre-emptively arrest anyone, but rather to provide support from local health or social workers. For example, they could offer counselling to any individual with a history of mental health issues that had been flagged by NDAS as being likely to commit a violent crime. Potential victims could be contacted by social services.

It essentially means a weakening of the presumption of innocence.

Very generally speaking, police and other authorities can't investigate the average innocent person with no hint at all that they might be guilty of a crime, "just because". The presumption of innocence in this case means that authorities are only allowed to become active when there is an indication that something might be up with you.

But if you gather data from pretty much every citizen for the specific purpose of checking if they have done something illegal, then that's already a few steps removed from the idea that generally speaking, an innocent citizen must be left alone.

Also, the effectiveness of this kind of mass data mining is doubtful. Many European countries have had blanket online data gathering and retention programmes in place, quite a few have also abandoned them again after public protest and high court rulings in those respective countries, and when they evaluated the results of all the data gathering, they very typically found that it didn't significantly reduce online crime itself, or even increase the rate of solved crimes, which had been the biggest argument in favour of the measure. Real professional criminals typically knew how to circumvent the data gathering, as they usually do, and the only people who got caught in slightly increasing numbers were a handful of hapless kiddie porn downloaders and filesharers. But even they increasingly began to successfully cover their tracks.

Most national high courts have ruled that all this did not justify putting an entire country's population under suspicion by keeping all their online data.

>in the US, for instance, a sentencing advisor used in some states has been recommending harsher sentences for black people because black people get harsher sentences

And these feedback loops of self evidence are what makes the whole idea so dangerous.

And it already occurs the same way with "heat maps" used by local police in some countries to predict at what time of day which areas of a city could see increased street crime. If you are then unlucky enough, especially as a black person, to be in that area at that time, then you are going to look guilty even if all you really veryfiably did was pass along that street out of sheer coincidence.

And then if you throw AI into the mix, the mere fact that you were in that area at a time when street crime was predicted to be most likely can worsen your crime probability score or whatever you want to call it.

I think Austria axed it completely, as well as the Czech Republic. And I think Frau Merkel's government wanted to go back to data collection after Germany's high court struck it down, banking on loopholes both in EU and German high court rulings, but some ISPs in Germany then sued the government on technicalities. And the end result is that they've got a law that says ISPs must store user data, but the ISPs aren't doing it because they won the lawsuit against the German government.

There was a whole story on that on Zdnet a while ago, pretty fascinating, can't find it now.

Well my parents used to say that I would either be a firefighter or an arsonist when I grew up, because I seemed to have a pretty noticeable fixation on fire and explosions as a little kid.

I even managed to light a Mickey Mouse book on fire in the waste bin in my bedroom. It's been over 30 years, but everytime I go to my parents' house, there's still my old waste basket in my old room, slightly wonky on one side from the heat of the burning paper in it.

Pretty much any surface that a number of different people will touch during a day will turn out to be massively unsanitary and crawling with germs if you really examine it.

I try to limit my exposure to other people's pathogens by trying to avoid such surfaces. Or washing my hands after touching them.

For example, one thing I always do is when I've ordered something by post and I have to sign for it, I wash my hands afterwards. That stylus with which you have to sign your name on the screen of that handheld thing the delivery lad carries has to be completely covered in all kinds of muck. And it will literally go through dozens of hands every day, very likely without ever getting a proper clean.

I also avoid eating the peanuts that you always get in a little bowl for everybody at parties or in a bar or what-have-you. I think somebody actually did a petri dish test once on some communal peanuts like that and found all sorts of things from flu viruses to faecal bacteria on them. Which kind of makes it even worse than a poo smeared touchscreen at McD. Well, unless you lick that screen from top to bottom.

I always press the pelican crossing button, and things like that, with my knuckle. I make sure and get door handles halfway down my fingers. I push doors by making a fist first. Then if I need to rub my eye or something, my fingertips haven't been violated. I use antibacterial gel when I get back in.

The last time I got flu coincided with someone thrusting a communal pen into my hand before I could get my own pen out. Now if I expect to have to sign something I have my own pen ready. I only get flu about every five years or so.

I've thought about just keeping my own stylus ready next to the door so that when I take delivery of a package, I won't have to mess with deliverylad's stylus.

But I guess I'm still a bit more worried I'll look like a cunt because of it than I am worried I'll catch some germs off it.

So I will probably just keep washing my hands thoroughly in the bathroom everytime I've signed for a package.

One time, in the Galapagos islands, I was feeling pretty backed up. The hostel was busy and I hadn't had a suitable opportunity to relieve myself. I'd taken the boat over to Espanola for the day. I arrived, and started to explore. Soon I found a colony of Blue-footed boobies. Although I wasn't sexually attracted to them, the combination of their name and my current situation just drove me wild. I had to nip into the bushes to quell myself. So there I was, having a grand old time, but the trouble was, the birds there have no predators, and so had no fear of me. A few waddled over to see what I was up to, but I was in full flow, I couldn't stop. It was like an oil slick. A week's worth of white oil, all over their feathers. I put the old beagle away and snuck off to look at the Albatrosses.

I once actually knocked over a bird cage with my ex's birds in it while we were passionately making love on her sofa in the livingroom. At some point in the heat of passion, my leg somehow went off one end of the sofa and hit the cage stand with the cage on it which she kept near the sofa with a pair of budgies in it. The birds survived the fall unharmed, but probably got the scare of their lives.

And no, we did not resume our bonking. Not right away anyway.

When humans grow extremely tall, it can be caused by a benign adenoma (tumour) on the pituitary gland which then produces excess growth hormones. The condition is called gigantism and can lead to body heights well in excess of 7ft.

Ryanair’s latest change to its cabin baggage policy has triggered plenty of criticism on social media.

Europe’s biggest low-cost airline has reduced the amount that passengers can take through security to the departure gate without paying extra. Instead of one large and one small bag, travellers are restricted to one “mid-sized” bag.

To carry anything more substantial, they will either need to buy Priority Boarding or pay a fee for checking in luggage.

>Tensions between Moscow and Kiev have escalated after Russia fired on and seized three Ukrainian vessels and their crews in the Kerch strait separating Crimea from the Russian mainland.

>The Russian foreign ministry accused Kiev of coordinating with the US and the EU in a “planned provocation” aimed at securing further anti-Moscow sanctions as the Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, asked parliament to impose martial law.

>The UN security council held an emergency session on the crisis on Monday but could not even agree on the agenda. A Russian agenda phrased in a way that implied Ukrainian culpability was voted down, so the Russian deputy ambassador, Dmitry Polyanskiy, refused to take part in the scheduled debate which followed.

I suppose the Russian government would prefer it if the Ukrainians began dragging their ships over land, Werner Herzog style, whenever they wanted to get back to port.

16610 Dad forced son, 11, to have sex with stepmum to 'cure' him of being gay
A father forced his 11-year-old son to have sex with his stepmother in a twisted attempt to “cure” the child from being gay. Young Daniel Dowling was made to watch porn and forced into threesomes. And when he refused to perform a sex act on his stepmum his dad tried to punch him.

Daniel will never forget the day the abuse began. It was a Sunday afternoon. Dowling and Breakspear were playing board game Frustration with Daniel at home in Bracknell, Berks. Fashion retail manager Daniel, who now lives in Surrey, recalls: “Dad told me we were going to try something different – to take our clothes off whenever someone lost. By the end of the game Annette was completely naked. They instructed me to touch and kiss her breasts. Dad was encouraging me to do it so I thought it was okay. I think that night was a tester of how I’d react because intercourse started after that.”

Once, he was picked up by his dad from Scouts, taken home and told to “give Breakspear a goodnight kiss”. Daniel said: “I went into their room and she was handcuffed to the bed naked. I gave her a kiss and went to leave but she asked me to touch her and to untie one of her hands. We had intercourse and Dad came and joined in.”

Another time, he was made to view porn before his dad had oral sex with Annette and said: “That’s how you do it.” In another sickening incident Daniel was called in to find them naked and engaged in a sex act. Breakspear then had sex with Daniel. He said: “We’d watch porn in bed together and then we’d have threesomes. She’d instruct me on what to do. Sometimes when Dad wasn’t there she’d ask me into her room for fondling and intercourse.

In a sickening attempt to explain his depravity in his trial at Reading Crown Court, Daniel’s father claimed he abused his son “to try and steer him in the right direction and not to go to the way of being gay, because there was like, sort of, tendencies for him to be gay”. He added: “All I ever wanted was for him to turn out the right way.”

Daniel said: “Dad said that he did it to stop me being gay because I showed feminine traits as a child. One day we were at a car boot sale and my neighbour saw me wrestling an old lady for a handbag. She told my dad, ‘Your Dan’s going to bat for the other side’. And Dad said ‘No son of mine will be gay.’ I think the abuse started after that.”

Daniel’s dad admitted to police that he and Breakspear carried out “sordid and deplorable” abuse and that he felt ashamed and disgusted. In court he claimed the abuse was to prevent Daniel “turning gay”, to “protect him from paedophiles so he would know what was right and wrong” – and to educate him about how he should treat women.

If someone wants to go to a tabloid with an account of how their dad gave them a demonstration on the proper way to perform oral sex on a woman then I guess that's their prerogative.

There seems to be a double standard that I don't fully understand. The tabloids frequently use coy phrases like "steamy romp" and "sordid sex act" when they actually mean "had sex" and "wanked off in a Greggs", but they're happy to publish this? I dunno where their line is.

16560 Brexit: Antidepressant prescriptions increased in wake of EU referendum
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/brexit-depression-antidepressant-mental-health-final-say-peoples-vote-eu-referendum-a8643796.html

Antidepressant prescribing in England rose after the UK voted to quit the European Union, in stark contrast to widespread decreases in the prescribing of other medicines, a study suggests.

The researchers from King’s College London (KCL) said more should be done to bolster mental health services in the wake of major national events, such as elections and financial crises.

When they looked at this effect in the wake of the June 2016 referendum, they found that antidepressant use continued to rise in the wake of the result, but at a slower rate. However, prescribing for other types of drugs, which had also been increasing every year, suddenly began to drop, although the reasons why are not clear.

Beats me, I never took psych meds in my life. I only know that the old country is a fucking drug supermarket, and that a lot of people there like to make pills cocktails. I know a lot of older people that had spent several years downing benzos, raising the doses twice at year because they had developed tolerance.

It could be any former Soviet or Balkan country. I went out with a Lithuanian lass and she was telling me how her and her peer group all did benzos before they even drank alcohol. I've heard similar from my comrades from Russia all the way to Romania and Hungary.

When you are born in a shithole country with no hope to go away in the foreseeable future, you need something to soften the edges of reality. Otherwise, suicide becomes a very attractive idea.

Italy didn't look to me like a "drug supermarket" the last time it was there, but then, that was over ten years ago.

The only thing that struck me was that literally about 70 to 80 percent of Italians that we saw were smoking. Maybe that's changed, but it was really noticeable back then. Even groups of fifteen-year-old teenagers that you saw in the streets nearly all had fags in their mouths.

16485 UK austerity has inflicted 'great misery' on citizens, UN says
https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/nov/16/uk-austerity-has-inflicted-great-misery-on-citizens-un-says

The UK government has inflicted “great misery” on its people with “punitive, mean-spirited, and often callous” austerity policies driven by a political desire to undertake social re-engineering rather than economic necessity, the United Nations poverty envoy has found.

Philip Alston, the UN’s rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, ended a two-week fact-finding mission to the UK with a stinging declaration that levels of child poverty were “not just a disgrace, but a social calamity and an economic disaster”, even though the UK is the world’s fifth largest economy,

About 14 million people, a fifth of the population, live in poverty and 1.5 million are destitute, being unable to afford basic essentials, he said, citing figures from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. He highlighted predictions that child poverty could rise by 7% between 2015 and 2022, possibly up to a rate of 40%.

“It is patently unjust and contrary to British values that so many people are living in poverty,” he said, adding that compassion had been abandoned during almost a decade of austerity policies that had been so profound that key elements of the postwar social contract, devised by William Beveridge more than 70 years ago, had been swept away.

Mother, 46, left paralysed after being 'catapulted' from super-king sized bed during sex with her partner battles for £1m compensation because the divan was an inch-and-a-half lower on one side

A mother-of-four who was left paralysed after falling from a super-king size bed during sex has launched a legal battle for £1million compensation.

Claire Busby, 46, suffered catastrophic spinal injuries when she fell backwards from her recently delivered double-divan in August 2013. Successful business woman Mrs Busby from Maidenhead said she was in bed naked with her then partner when the bizarre tragedy unfolded.

Mrs Busby, who was left tetraplegic and appeared in court in a wheelchair, claims the bed was missing two vital 'glider' feet when delivered, which created a 4cm difference in the height from one side to another. Mrs Busby, who ran a chain of hairdressing and beauty salons is suing Berkshire Bed Company Ltd - trading as Beds Are Uzzz - claiming the bed was 'defective'.

The salon owner said she was 'performing a sexual act' when she toppled over. 'I was positioned kneeling over him,' she explained, to Judge Barry Cotter QC. 'I was kneeling over him and my right hand was touching him, maybe my left hand was touching his leg. I was half way down the bed.'

The claimant said the 'missing gliders' caused a 'slope from head to foot' which caused her to lose balance as she changed position and she 'catapulted' to the floor. At the time she was attempting to 'swing her legs towards the top of the bed', she told the High Court. 'I span around and put my hand down and then I felt as if I was catapulted off the back of the bed,' she said. 'My head hit the floor and I fell to the side and heard a spring in my body snap.'

Her QC, Winston Hunter, said two missing 'gliders' created a hazardous height difference between the bottom end of the left and right divans. 'At its maximum this difference would be 40mm,' he told the judge. This had the effect of creating 'an enhanced, albeit localised, slope at the edge of the mattress', the barrister argued.

Explaining the dynamics of the accident, he went on: 'She had been performing a sex act and, thereafter, she sat up with the intention of swinging her legs forward underneath her - and lying on her back with feet towards the headboard and her head towards the end of the bed. 'Her case is that, having taken the weight off her body through her buttocks, she lay back with the expectation that the mattress would support the weight of her upper torso and her head and shoulders. However, as she placed her weight through her upper body onto the mattress it failed to support her weight, and she continued moving backwards and downwards. The effect of this movement was that her head and upper torso came off the edge of the bed, and she slid to the floor with the weight of her body and legs rotating into a vertical position and forcing the weight of the same through her neck.'

16417 Girl Scouts sue Boy Scouts over planned name change
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46119393

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America have filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America for dropping "boy" from the scout group's name.

The Boy Scouts of America announced in May they would rename the Boy Scouts programme Scouts BSA as they prepare to allow girls as members.

But the Girl Scouts say the change could erode their brand, calling the move "uniquely damaging" to them.

Their lawsuit seeks damages and an injunction against trademark breaches.

"Only GSUSA has the right to use the Girl Scouts and Scouts trademarks with leadership development services for girls," papers filed in a Manhattan federal court said.

The switch could "marginalise" the Girl Scouts, the complaint reads. It reportedly says the switch has already caused confusion, with some believing their organisation had merged with the Boy Scouts.
