The global internet is powered by vast undersea cables. But they’re vulnerable.

(July 26, 2019)

Clatterbuck, the Seacom CEO, was skeptical about how much use tapping an undersea cable would be, pointing to the huge amounts of data passing through it every second, creating a huge hayfield in which to look for needles.

Schon seit Längerem findet man diese Regelung in § 56 des Infektionsschutzgesetzes des Bundes:

20 Jahre Bundeswehr in Afghanistan: War es das wert?

Allenfalls gemischt fällt auch die Bilanz der Wehrbeauftragten Eva Högl aus, wie sie dem ARD-Hauptstadtstudio sagte. „Das Ziel war, dass internationaler islamistischer Terrorismus nicht mehr von Afghanistan ausgeht, da kann man möglicherweise einen Haken dranmachen“, so die SPD-Politikerin, die aber gleichzeitig zu bedenken gibt: …

Ende der Insolvenzschutz-Regel: Droht jetzt die große Pleitewelle?

Ab Mai gilt die Insolvenzantragspflicht wieder. Das heißt: Ist ein Unternehmen zahlungsunfähig oder überschuldet, muss es innerhalb von drei Wochen einen Insolvenzantrag stellen. Sonst droht ihm eine Klage wegen Insolvenzverschleppung. Dies soll die Rechte der Gläubiger schützen.

Experten: Viele offene Fragen zu „Grünem Pass“

Für Dietmar Bayer, Telemedizinspezialist in der Ärztekammer, ist die Eile insbesondere der ÖVP nicht nachvollziehbar. Es sei etwa völlig unklar, wie der Nachweise für Genesene zustande komme. Das Bundesrechenzentrum könne das nicht machen. Das sei Aufgabe von Ärzten, sagte Bayer im Ö1-Morgenjournal am Donnerstag: „Diese Fragen werden jetzt überhaupt nicht diskutiert. Wir verstehen die Geschwindigkeit und den Druck, der gemacht wird, überhaupt nicht.“

Israel, Greece and Cyprus hold naval drill with a participation of France


The Dolphin 2-class are the largest submarines to have been built in Germany since World War II. The Dolphin class boats are the most expensive single vehicles in the Israel Defense Forces.

Each Dolphin-class submarine is capable of carrying a combined total of up to 16 torpedoes and Popeye Turbo submarine-launched cruise missiles (SLCMs). The cruise missiles have a range of at least 1,500 km (930 mi) and are widely believed to be equipped with a 200 kiloton nuclear warhead containing up to 6 kilograms (13 lb) of plutonium.

Below the Surface

In the last 20 years, Israel has spent billions on submarines ordered from Germany, with a political agreement having been reached on three additional vessels. The big question, though, is: Why so many? Why does Israel want so many more submarines than are, according to experts, necessary for the defense of the country?

Democrat asks intel agencies if they’re surveilling members of Congress

Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, asked two intelligence agencies on Friday if surveillance has been conducted on members of Congress in the last decade.

In a letter to the heads of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), Eshoo raised alarm over allegations in a book published earlier this year by journalist Barton Gellman.

New Report Reveals US Special Forces Active in 22 African Countries


The U.S. is not formally at war with an African nation, and the continent is barely discussed in reference to American exploits around the globe. Therefore, when U.S. operatives die in Africa, as happened in Niger, Mali, and Somalia in 2018, the response from the public, and even from the media is often “why are American soldiers there in the first place?”

Israel is about to reveal its West Bank annexation plans. How will Congress respond?

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC, reportedly told U.S. lawmakers last week they’re “free to criticize Israel’s looming annexation plans — just as long as the criticism stops there.”

Did the CIA Invent the Term ‘Conspiracy Theory’?


One may find the CIA’s attempt to influence public opinion problematic. But there is not a single sentence in the document that indicates the CIA intended to weaponise, let alone introduce the term “conspiracy theory” to disqualify criticism. In fact, “conspiracy theory” in the singular is never used in the document. “Conspiracy theories” in the plural is only used once, matter-of-factly in the third paragraph:

Was heckled Boris Johnson set up for a fall by EU chiefs in Luxembourg?

First, Mr Johnson was invited for talks in a public place, a popular restaurant, with the inevitable result that protesters were waiting outside to heckle him. And then, bizarrely, he was expected to face a press conference not indoors, but outdoors, in a courtyard – mere feet from a large gate, where crowds of protesters could easily gather. And gather they duly did.
