« What's on your mind? »

At this, he took up with his eyes his son, whose face still resembled his mother, looked very dazed and had an expression of terror, and looked at us again.

« What are you doing? »

« I don't know if I can come to understand it, but I just had a dream, and I want you to help me.

« What is it? »

« I am afraid that I haven't told you the truth, and as soon as I say it I'll tell you everything.

« I see. »

That evening we sat on a bench, and we didn't hear for hours, but after five minutes we heard the cry of mother, and in a loud voice her voice became loud again.

« Oh God! mother! »

« Are you there? »

« Yes, it is me! »

« Good. Why, you heard my voice when you came in.?

« Yes, dear father — I will take to sleep with you; but you might be scared and angry at the same time.

« I know, dear son.

We were lying in bed the next morning when the next morning's news came that the people had been robbed and murdered; and when we heard of that we came

Beer fear in Japan ...

TOKYO: When hosting an international rugby tournament and welcoming thirsty fans from around the world, the last thing you want to do is run out of beer.
That's the message from Rugby World Cup bosses to Japanese hosts as they gear up for the global showcase that kicks off on September 20.
Japan is the first Asian country to host the World Cup and may be unfamiliar with rugby culture, organisers said, including a healthy thirst for beer - before, during and after the action on the pitch.

Rugby bosses have warned host cities about running out of ale, using anecdotes such as :
-when Australian and Irish fans drank the city of Adelaide dry, forcing emergency supplies to be brought in from surrounding areas.
Around two million litres of beer were downed at stadiums and nearby areas during the 2015 Rugby World Cup with rugby fans having a reputation for outdrinking their football counterparts.

Typo on Aussie $50 note brings blushes for central bank
SYDNEY: Red-faced bank bosses in Australia admitted to an embarrassing error on Thursday (May 9), revealing their state-of-the-art A$50 note had a typo.
The yellow and green note, which is worth around US$35, came into circulation last October.
It has multiple security features - including microprint of a speech by Australia's first female parliamentarian, Edith Cowan.
But the technology seemingly did not include a spellchecker.
It took seven months for the public to notice "responsibility" was repeatedly misspelt in the text of Cowan's 1921 maiden speech.
"I stand here today in the unique position of being the first woman in an Australian parliament. It is a great responsibilty," the text reads, missing an "i".

Dutch publication Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant reports that Intel offered to pay the researchers a USD $40,000 "reward" to allegedly get them to downplay the severity of the vulnerability, and backed their offer with an additional $80,000.
The team politely refused both offers.

20190519 Huawei Google Android Suspension
Reached for comment, a Google spokesperson said only “We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications.”
The order, in this case, appears to be the US Commerce Department’s recent decision to place Huawei on the “Entity List,”
which as Reuters reports is a list of companies that are unable to buy technology from US companies without government approval.
Speaking to Reuters, a Google spokesperson confirmed that “Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices.”
So while existing Huawei phones around the world won’t be immediately impacted by the decision,
the future of updates for those phones as well as any new phones Huawei would produce remains in question.
Huawei is now restricted to using the Android Open Source Project (AOSP),
cutting the company off from critical Google apps and services that consumers outside of China expect on Android devices.
That also means Huawei will only be able to push security updates for Android once they’re made available in AOSP,
assuming the company uses its own update system.
It’s not clear yet how this will affect the full range of Android integrations that Huawei depends on,
but we will update this story when we receive additional clarification about the impacts of Google’s decision.

20190520 Huawei Google ban
Intel decided to no longer supply processors and other hardware to Huawei, for use in its laptops and server products.
Sales of AMD processors will stop, too. Qualcomm-Broadcom have decided to stop supply of mobile SoCs and network PHYs, respectively.
Microsoft decided to stop licensing Huawei to use Windows and Office products.

LONDON: Huawei said it would continue to provide security updates and services for its smartphones and tablets after Google said it would comply with an order barring the Chinese company from updates to its Android operating system.
"We have made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world," a spokesman said on Monday (May 20).
"Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally.
"We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally," he added.

20190523 - France, Graignes 1944-0606

In western France, a village remembers D-Day's "secret massacre"
GRAIGNES, France: The lost US paratrooper tapped on the door of the Rigault family's farmhouse in Normandy in the early hours of
Jun 6, 1944, miles south of his intended drop zone and soaking from his landing in the surrounding marshland.
After four years under German occupation, 12-year-old Marthe Rigault, awoken by the roar of aircraft overhead, watched as her parents warmed the foreign soldier with a flask of coffee.
The Germans were brutal in their reprisals against the village, Rigault recalled.
The village priest, Father Albert Leblastier, and a Franciscan priest were shot dead and their bodies burned.
Homesteads were torched. The maimed paratroopers left behind were split into two groups:
some were marched down the road and executed, others were "thrown into the marshes and bayoneted," Rigault recalled.
"We weren't allowed to pull them out for several days."
Then, in 1984, a small number of the US soldiers whose lives had been saved by the villagers returned to Graignes.
"It was tough for them to come back because they felt that in some way they had abandoned the villagers, left them to face the Germans' revenge,"
said Denis Small, mayor of Graignes for the past 22 years.
"But the village received them for the liberators that they were."

20190610 Indonesia new capital Jakarta
Earthquake, floods and water shortages threatens the capital.
Jakarta's river is heavily polluted.
Traffic congestion in Jakarta has resulted in economic losses, reaching 56 trillion rupiah (US$3.8 billion) per year.
As a result, many parties question the urgency of the plan, and even see it as an attempt to distract from other issues during the election campaign.
Before arguing about the right location for the new capital city,
Indonesia must be sure that the decision to move the capital has been supported by evidence and a comprehensive analysis of its implications.
Otherwise, they'll risk repeating the same mistakes and creating problems in the new capital.

FireFox has made a hotfix. It's located at below.

This supposedly is the hotfix directly, without configuring FireFox settings or joining any studies. However, if a person is worried, then it's probably best to use the above steps.

This has been one hell of a screw-up, affecting millions. Mozilla looks to be trying really hard to do it better than Microsoft.

; Firefox armageddon :evil: > All extensions disabled due to expiration of intermediate signing cert

Bug 1548973 (armagadd-on-2.0)
[work in progress] All extensions disabled due to expiration of intermediate signing cert
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0

Steps to reproduce:
Wait until it's past midnight on 2019-05-04 UTC.
Actual results:
All addons got disabled due not having valid signature.
Expected results:
If the signature was due to expire, it should have been renewed weeks ago. Not all extensions were disabled. Fakespot and Google Scholar Button were left in their disabled state.
Some reports on reddit 1 says that they had their clocks a day forward, but they may be just early canaries for the actual widespread issue.
Going backwards in time allows installation from AMO but do not remove the unsupported mark from the add ons already installed.

What's going on?
A few hours ago a security certificate that Mozilla used to sign Firefox add-ons expired. What this means is that every add-on signed by that certificate, which seems to be nearly all of them, will now be automatically disabled by Firefox as security measure.
In simpler terms, Firefox doesn't trust any add-ons right now.
