Finally A Free VPN

If you are angered and worried that governments and their agencies can see everything you do online, you should be. It is a clear violation of a persons right to privacy but to get around such things has always required money and possibly some IT knowledge but not any more. Hats off to Swiss startup Proton for now providing a free and fully functional VPN service. Needless to say, they

Putins Favourite Gallery

Having heard that Putin just loves all the pro-homo images of him floating around in cyberspace (some Photoshopped, some not), we thought that we would round up the best, so there will always be a one-stop online resource just to annoy the twat. Despite what you may have read in The Daily Mail or on other less reputable websites, these images are not illegal in Russia. The fake news was of course believable

3.5 Years Jail For Pokemon Hunter

We wrote last October that Russian YouTube vlogger Ruslan Sokolovsky faced up to 5 years in prison for playing Pokemon Go in church. After recording and posting the hunt online to his 300,000 followers, he was visited by the law and has been accused of "offending religious sensibilities". To be fair, the Russian government did issue a warning to its citizens first but they have now confirmed the prosecutors are

Robots Replace 90% Of Workforce

In this civilised and modern world we live in, where people like to blame immigrants for taking their jobs and straining public services, let us not forget what is actually going on with the once massive sector of production employment. For decades now millions of people all over the world have been replaced by robots and the owners of a Chinese factory in Dongguan will tell you why. Recently 90% of its
Great news for the people of the Netherlands, their Government just learned that the planned subsidy for a second Windfarm is going to be considerably less than the original forecasts. The proposed project, 22Km off the Zeeuwse coast will deliver power to between 850k and 1 Million households and instead of the subsidy being €5 Billion, it will now be €3 Million. Dutch economic affairs Minister, Henk Kamp, stated that the park would be built by a consortium comprising Dutch Shell, Eneco, (Electricity supplier), Van Oord (Dredging specialists) and DGE, an offshoot of Mitsubishi. This consortium agreed to the much lower subsidy level which is now set at a mere 5.45 Euro cents/Kwh. The deal has been struck in such a way that Government exposure is minimal, with the subsidy is only paid out on Kwh actually delivered This project is the first of 5 farms proposed off the Netherlands coast, each with an output of 700 Megawatts capable of supplying 5 Million homes. The expectation is that after 7-8 years the parks will function subsidy free. When the agreements to build were made in 2013 the government allowed for a total subsidy level of €18 Bn. "It is now possible that 6 billion will be enough," said Minister Kamp on Monday. Great news for the environment, proof that Fossil fuel companies can take the lead in renewables, and of course, a welcome change from the British model where they insist on getting everything arse about face with projects coming in, overpriced, over budget, and way over their allotted timeframe. Mrs. May could learn a thing or two methinks, especially bearing in mind that all this windfarm activity is taking place in exactly the same North Sea that laps on the shores of Britain Meanwhile, the Netherlands government is planning from 2030 to build 5 more Windfarms, each capable of 1000Mw, as well as large Geothermal and Solar power developments which in total will supply 5,000,000 homes. With this additional capability added to the existing developments, the Netherlands will be effectively fossil fuel free, and at this rate in a good position to export energy throughout the EU.

Is Uber Replacing Transport Infrastructure ?

In what can only be regarded as a serious cause for concern, multiple news outlets are reporting that many cities are investing in the taxi app Uber, rather than traditional transportation infrastructure. With the US leading the way (if you can call it that), transport funding from local government is going to Uber, rather than mass transport solution, which makes us wonder if there is a requirement to be mentally
