Souvenez vous des paroles du député Jacques Domergue
et la prochaine fois que vous le croisez, bottez lui le cul...

ILS NE FOUTENT RIEN CES CHÔMEURS, ET EN PLUS ILS VOTENT À GAUCHE . . .

[Le Grand Soir 28 mars 2004]
Jacques Domergue député UMP de l'Hérault a évoqué à l'issue du premier tour des élections cantonales et régionales dimanche dernier sur France 3 Sud, "quand on a vu la mobilisation et que des gens qui ne se lèvent pas pour aller bosser, se sont levés pour aller voter, on a vite compris que ça allait être dur pour nous".

MANIFESTATION EN PYJAMA DEVANT LA PERMANENCE DE L'UMP À MONTPELLIER

[AFP samedi 27 mars 2004]
Une quarantaine de "lève-tôt" ont manifesté en pyjama samedi devant le siège de l'UMP à Montpellier pour dénoncer les propos d'un député de l'Hérault stigmatisant "ceux qui ne se lèvent pas pour aller bosser" mais "se lèvent pour aller voter". Réunis à l'appel d'un "comité contre le parti du mépris" et soutenus par la Cimade, Attac et Droit au logement, les manifestants brandissaient tous un carton rouge. Ils ont déversé un tas de fumier devant la permanence de Jacques Domergue pour dire "non à l'expression du mépris", selon Christian Perrin, un chômeur de 42 ans, ancien chargé de mission dans des organismes sociaux et organisateur du rassemblement.

Jacques Domergue avait évoqué à l'issue du premier tour des élections cantonales et régionales dimanche dernier sur France 3 Sud, "quand on a vu la mobilisation et que des gens qui ne se lèvent pas pour aller bosser, se sont levés pour aller voter, on a vite compris que ça allait être dur pour nous".

Le député UMP est venu apporter des croissants aux manifestants, leur proposant de les recevoir autour d'un café, ce qu'ils ont refusé.

"On combat tous l'assistanat et c'est ce qu'a voulu dire ma phrase, je n'ai jamais voulu parler de chômeurs" s'est-il justifié. "On ne nous achète pas avec des croissants", lui a rétorqué un des manifestants.

U.S. ONLINE-GAMBLING BAN VIOLATES INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAWS, WTO RULES

[Seattle Post Intelligencer 28.03.04]
The World Trade Organization, in its first decision on an Internet-related dispute, has ignited a political, cultural and legal tinderbox by ruling that the U.S. policy prohibiting online gambling violates its obligations under international trade law.

The ruling by a WTO panel Wednesday is being hailed by online casinos operators overseas as a major victory that could force the United States to liberalize its laws. But the Bush administration vowed to appeal the decision, and several members of Congress said they would rather have an international trade war or withdraw from future rounds of the World Trade Organization than have American social policy dictated from abroad.

"It's appalling," said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. "It cannot be allowed to stand that another nation can impose its values on the U.S. and make it a trade issue." (et que font les USA tout le temps dans le reste du monde si ce n'est imposer leurs valeurs via l'OMC ? -- greg)

WITH ELECTION NEARING, BUSH TALKS UP BROADBAND

[Politech 30.03.04]
President Bush : "I want to talk about one other thing we've got to do to make sure this is a good place for people to realize their dreams and start a business and get well educated, is we've got to make sure this country is on the leading end of broadband technology. You see, new ideas and new businesses and new ways to educate people in Farmington, New Mexico are going to occur when we're able to get information flowing across cables and telephone lines in a fast way. That's what broadband technology is. It means we'll open the highways of knowledge -- new highways of knowledge. This country needs a national goal for broadband technology, for the spread of broadband technology. We ought to have a universal, affordable access for broadband technology by the year 2007, and then we ought to make sure as soon as possible thereafter, consumers have got plenty of choices when it comes to purchasing the broadband carrier. See, the more choices

BANK ROBBER TURNS HIMSELF IN AFTER SEEING PASSION MOVIE

[Palm Beach Post 28.03.04]
James Anderson, 53, initially got away with bank robbery. More than two years ago, he made off with $25,000 in cash, and police in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., had no leads, no suspects. But, he says, he has felt guilty and scared since, so he turned himself in. What motivated him to do that now? "He said, 'I saw "The Passion" and that made my decision'," said a Palm Beach County Sheriff's spokesman. "And he sort of urged [the detective] to see the movie too." But an investigator says there's more to it than that: Anderson has cancer and has no money. "He's looking for medical attention he doesn't have to pay for," says Palm Beach Gardens police Sgt. Richard Geist.

WOMAN DRIVES CAR INTO POND TO GET 'BAPTIZED'

[New Britain Herald 02.03.04]
"According to the officers on the scene, she told them she was attempting to reenact a scene from the movie," said New Britain, Conn, police spokesman Sgt. Darren Pearson. The movie: "The Passion of the Christ". The unnamed woman, married and in her 40s, purposefully drove her Chevrolet Lumina into a pond at a city park in order to baptize herself, officers said. She was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.

TEACHER SHOWS PASSION MOVIE TO SCHOOLCHILDREN

[Washington Post 05.03.04]
"I saw Jesus getting beaten. It was scary," said Cutairra Ransom, 11. "It made me feel really bad." So why was the girl watching the R-rated "The Passion of the Christ" in the first place? She had no choice: a teacher at Malcolm X Elementary in Washington, D.C. showed sixth-grade students the film in class. When outraged parents complained, teacher Ronald Anthony was suspended with pay. Principal Vaughn Kimbrough, who called the movie "inappropriate" for schoolchildren, says Anthony told him he showed the film as it "corresponded" to sections of the school's social studies textbook.

RELIGIOUS ARGUMENT AFTER PASSION MOVIE LEADS TO FISTFIGHT

[The Smoking Gun 18.03.04]
After Melissa and Sean Davidson saw "The Passion of the Christ" in Statesboro, Ga., the couple argued over a religious point: is "the Father" of the Holy Trinity human, or spiritual? "During that argument, they started arguing about the mentality of each other's parents," said the deputy that was called to their home to settle things down. And then, he said, "they started fighting." Melissa, 34, admits they "pushed and shoved" each other, leaving her with "visible injuries on her left arm and face" and Sean, 33, with "an alleged scissor stab on his hand and his shirt was ripped off," according to the police report. Sean also punched his fist through a wall. Melissa and Sean, married for 10 years, were both arrested and charged with battery.

MAN NAILS HIMSELF TO CROSS, CALLS POLICE

[Bangor Daily News - 16.03.04]
A man in Somerset County, Vt., apparently intent on suicide, built a cross in his livingroom and attempted to crucify himself by nailing one of his hands to one side with a 14-penny nail. The unnamed 23-year-old then had a logistical problem. "When he realized that he was unable to nail his other hand to the board, he called 911," said Sheriff Barry DeLong, who noted it was unclear whether the man wanted help getting free, or help in nailing his free hand.

PRIVACY VILLAIN OF THE WEEK

[National Consumer Coalition's Privacy Group - Alert 29.03.04]
Privacy Villain of the Week: 'Registered Traveler' enablers. The Transportation Security Administration announced last week that it will be initiating a pilot test program of its long-touted "trusted traveler,' now rechristened 'registered traveler' program. The program will be a 'voluntary' (at the outset, anyway) internal biometric passport system set up at airports around the country.
http://cryptome.org/tsa031804.txt

The idea is being sold to potential volunteers on the basis that turning over your iris-scan to the Department of Homeland Security will allow you to go through a less harassing experience at the airport. How effective this will be at lessening hassle is unclear, however. The majority of the hassle at the airports for travelers comes at the metal detector gauntlet where air travel consumers must remove coats, keys, often shoes, take their laptop from its case, etc. Yet a TSA spokesman told Wired News, "the card is not a 'get out of security checks' card, and that those who register will still have to go through metal detectors. The program may, however, create designated lanes to speed registered travelers past long lines."
http://www.wired.com/news/privacy/0,1848,62777,00.html

Additionally, with the TSA insisting on pushing the CAPPS II passenger screening program, all of them will undergo a background check every time they buy an air ticket anyway. So the value of the background check a "trusted traveler" goes through is unclear. Even if he has already turned his iris over to Sec. Ridge, any future 'anomaly' in his credit or phone records could conceivably put him into the special scrutiny category that entails more invasive searches.

On the other hand, if TSA is being disingenuous and those who get the cards will undergo very little scrutiny, the system would be ripe for abuse, particularly by anyone with connections on the inside.

Given all this, it is unclear what the usefulness of the card will be, beyond establishing a biometric database for the federal government. The only practical effect would seem to be harassment of those who do not wish to be scanned and traced, since they will have to wait in longer lines to go through identical search procedures.

With what little information that has been put out by TSA so far, the program seems to be little more than a backdoor to a national biometrically-enabled ID program.

And the required privacy notices for the program have not been issued by TSA, which says they "may not" apply since the program is voluntary. The dearth of information leaves air travelers even more in the dark as to what may lie ahead.

Government's one-size-fits-all programs typically degenerate into one-size-fits-none, and security is no different. There may be a place for similar programs in a free and private air travel and air security market. But TSA is determined that command-and-control supplant market processes. Anyone who volunteers to be guinea pigs for this odd privacy-destroying program should think twice. There is nothing to indicate that surrendering privacy will lead to anything resembling more security under such a program. TSA hopes to get 5,000 volunteers for the pilot program. Don't do it. We don't need 5,000 unwitting privacy villains cultivating this process which deserves to die on the vine.

Plaxo: un service en ligne qui vous vole votre carnet d'adresses... le PDG de la boite se fait latter par les geeks au Salon PC Forum

PLAXO MEETS PRIVACY CRITICISM AT PC FORUM CONFERENCE

[Politech 30.03.04]
Prime example: Koogle was sitting on a panel about the evolution of searching on the Internet when the crowd got ugly and turned on him. Koogle, who also worked at Motorola and sits on the boards of about a half-dozen start-ups, is a director of Friendster, the social-networking phenomenon, and a director of Plaxo, a service that updates e-mail address books. And it was his affiliation with Plaxo that put him on the hot seat.

If you haven't been "Plaxoed" yet, here's how it works: Users of Plaxo's free service can download the company's software to their computers, which copies the persons' contact database and stores it on Plaxo's servers. A user can ask Plaxo to send out a blast e-mail to everyone in his address book and ask them to update their information. But when the person who receives the message responds, he or she is directly connected to Plaxo's Website, which secretly leaves a software probe on the recipient's computer. The controversial company has many technophiles worked into a lather over a number of issues, including privacy, intrusion and trust.

During the question-and-answer period following the panel discussion, a number of conferees attacked Koogle as though he were the second coming of Bill Gates. One man referred to the company's service as unsolicited spam. Others griped that it was simply creepy. Lastly, and perhaps the biggest concern, is the issue of what happens to all of that data if Plaxo is someday acquired?

INTERNET IS WIRETAPPING FRONTIER

[Post-Dispatch 03/27/2004]
The FBI already can intercept phone lines, e-mails and instant messaging with ease. Now it's fighting for even faster and easier access. The bureau and other law enforcement agencies are in a battle with the companies that transmit the e-mails, phone calls and instant messages.

Police would still need a court order to tap phone or computer lines, and that likely won't change. The current battle is over whether the FBI will dictate the technology to eavesdrop on Internet communications. Also at stake: whether you will pay more to use the Internet. This month, the FBI unveiled a plan to require all U.S. broadband providers, including cable and DSL companies, to rewire their Internet networks to make it easier for police agencies to intercept messages.

5TH CIRCUIT GIVES POLICE NEW POWER IN SEARCHES : WARRANT UNNEEDED IN SOME INSTANCES

[Associated Press March 27, 2004]
A federal appeals court has opened the door for police in Texas and two other states to search residences and buildings for evidence without a warrant -- a ruling strongly criticized by two dissenting justices.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled police do not need an arrest or search warrant to conduct a swift sweep of private property to ensure their safety. Evidence found in that search is admissible if the search is a "cursory inspection" and if police entered for a legitimate purpose and believed it may be dangerous.

The 11-4 ruling affects Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi and replaces a standard set in 1994, when the 5th Circuit held that police can make a so-called protective sweep only if officers are there to arrest someone. In the majority opinion, Judge William Lockhart Garwood wrote that any in-home encounter poses a risk to police officers, even if it is simply to interview someone.

COMPANY CLAIMS TO OWN ONLINE TESTING

[Chronicle March 26, 2004]
A patent holder demands fees from colleges that use a common tool of distance education. When Regis University put some of its courses online in the 1990s, officials there figured that it was a no-brainer to administer tests online as well. And so they did. Last fall, however, they received a threatening letter from Test Central Inc., which holds a patent on various types of online testing. The company claims that Regis and other colleges may be infringing on that patent and, if so, must pay thousands of dollars to continue offering tests online.

Ellen K. Waterman, director of distance learning at the Denver institution, says she was stunned to see that somebody claimed to own the rights to online testing itself. The patent claims made by Test Central are so broad, she says, that they seem to cover any type of testing in cyberspace."It's very, very general," she says. "If you can patent anything that people do on the Web, we are not protected at all."

CONDOR - l'axe du mal - sortie en salles le 21 janvier

Un documentaire
de Rodrigo Vasquez
Sélection au Festival de Cannes
Sortie le 21 Janvier 2004

C'est au nom de "la lutte contre le terrorisme" qu'une opération spéciale - nom de code CONDOR - a été menée dans les années 70 et 80 en Amérique du Sud. Cette lutte lancée par le Chili après le coup d'état du 11 septembre 1973 d'Augusto Pinochet, ciblait les mouvements de gauche.
Condor devint rapidement un réseau reliant les dictatures militaires, soutenu par le département d'Etat américain et la CIA.Le film de Rodrigo Vazquez, jeune cinéaste argentin, accompagne plusieurs victimes de CONDOR, toujours à la recherche de la vérité.. Il pousse certains leaders de Condor, hélas toujours en place, à témoigner. Depuis les évènements du 11 septembre 2001, ceux-ci revendiquent ouvertement être les pionniers de l'actuel combat contre le "terrorisme international"
