Kodi Counters Scaremongerers and Clarifies Its Stance on DRM

Next steps toward more connection security

In January, we began our quest to improve how Chrome communicates the connection security of HTTP pages. Chrome now marks HTTP pages as “Not secure” if they have password or credit card fields. Beginning in October 2017, Chrome will show the “Not secure” warning in two additional situations: when users enter data on an HTTP page, and on all HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode .

Treatment of HTTP pages in Chrome 62

Our plan to label HTTP sites as non-secure is taking place in gradual steps, based on increasingly broad criteria. Since the change in Chrome 56 , there has been a 23% reduction in the fraction of navigations to HTTP pages with password or credit card forms on desktop, and we’re ready to take the next steps.

Passwords and credit cards are not the only types of data that should be private. Any type of data that users type into websites should not be accessible to others on the network, so starting in version 62 Chrome will show the “Not secure” warning when users type data into HTTP sites.
Treatment of HTTP pages with user-entered data in Chrome 62

When users browse Chrome with Incognito mode, they likely have increased expectations of privacy. However, HTTP browsing is not private to others on the network, so in version 62 Chrome will also warn users when visiting an HTTP page in Incognito mode.

Eventually, we plan to show the “Not secure” warning for all HTTP pages, even outside Incognito mode. We will publish updates as we approach future releases, but don’t wait to get started moving to HTTPS! HTTPS is easier and cheaper than ever before , and it enables both the best performance the web offers and powerful new features that are too sensitive for HTTP. Check out our set-up guides to get started.

Kinder- und Jugendärzte nehmen Stellung zu „Vaxxed“

Der Berufsverband der Kinder- und Jugendärzte in Deutschland hat einen Info-Flyer zu dem Film “Vaxxed” herausgegeben.


Zu dem angeblichen CDC-”Skandal”, den Wakefield mit aller Gewalt (und dem “Whistleblower” William W. Thompson) herbeifilmen will, heißt es darin:

  • Das amerikanische CDC hat in 2004 eine Studie zu Autismusfällen in der Großstadtregion Atlanta durchgeführt und versucht, die Zusammenhänge zum Zeitpunkt der MMR-Impfung zu überprüfen. Dabei kam es, wie bei solchen Studien üblich, zur Korrektur bei der Auswahl der Daten zum Zwecke der Vergleichbarkeit.
  • William Thompson war Mitautor dieser Studie und bezweifelte die Datenqualität und die Korrektur der Daten.
  • Brian Hooker, selbst Vater eines Autisten, hatte bei der Nachbearbeitung der CDC-Daten zu einer eigenen Studie in 2013 und 2014 mehrfach mit Thompson telefoniert und diese Gespräche heimlich aufgezeichnet. Diese Mitschnitte sind die „Hauptbeweise“ des Films für eine „Datenfälschung“.
  • Die von B. Hooker in 2014 veröffentlichte Studie wurde nach einigen Monaten wegen nicht korrektem Gebrauch von Daten und mangelnder Offenlegung von finanzieller Abhängigkeit ebenfalls vom Herausgeber zurückgezogen.
  • W. Thompson hat sich nach Veröffentlichung des Films eindeutig zum Nutzen aller in den USA empfohlenen Impfungen bekannt.”

Der Flyer kann hier heruntergeladen werden.


In einer Pressemitteilung dazu heißt es:

Besonders irritierend ist die Behauptung im Film, dass die Mono-Impfung gegen Masern angeblich ein geringeres Risiko für Autismus haben soll als die kombinierte Impfung gegen Masern, Mumps und Röteln. Denn dazu gibt es weltweit keine einzige Untersuchung.

Ob diese filmische Einschätzung damit zusammenhängt, dass Andrew Wakefield ein Patent für die Masern-Mono-Impfung besitzt, ist der Deutschen Akademie für Kinder- und Jugendmedizin nicht bekannt.”

Black and Pink PVD: who we are and what we do!

About Black and Pink Providence

Black and Pink PVD is the Rhode Island volunteer-run chapter of Black and Pink. Black & Pink is an open family of LGBTQ and prisoners and “free world” allies who support each other. Our work toward the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experience of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are outraged by the specific violence of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing. More on our purpose and analysis here:

Stay up to date by checking our Facebook page ( )  and signing up for our mailing list here: . You can also send an email to or write to us at Black and Pink PVD, PO Box 29444, Providence, RI, 02909. Please remember we are entirely volunteer-run and while we do our best to respond to everything, we may not get back to all email and mail immediately.

Our chapter was created in summer 2015. The below description of our group was last updated in April 2017 and is subject to change. Thanks for taking the time to learn more about us!

Inside members

Our local incarcerated members (inside members) in RI all identify within the LGBTQ umbrella and/or as HIV+. We communicate with and take leadership from them in what we do and how we do it, especially when it comes to advocacy and direct action. If you know someone incarcerated in Rhode Island who would like to become a member, have them send a letter with their info to us at Black and Pink Providence, PO Box 29444, Providence, RI 02909. Members receive a monthly newsletter and occasional chapter updates and communications.

Mail processing

We are able to contribute to Black and Pink national efforts and hear from members across the country by volunteering to processing mail we pick up from Black and Pink headquarters in Boston. This consists of reading mail and entering information into an online database that we provide training for. Entering this information into the database allows people who are incarcerated to get involved with Black and Pink by receiving a newsletter and/or penpal. We usually do this on the first Sunday of each month at Providence Youth Student Movement (PrYSM), 669 Elmwood Ave 2nd floor, from 6-8pm, while eating snacks!

Monthly organizing meetings

“Free world” members meet monthly to organize all that we do! We encourage people who want to get involved to come to a mail processing or penpal matching event before attending your first organizing meeting (then please be in touch to make sure we don’t forget to loop you in to come to the next organizing meeting!). Typically we meet on the third Thursday evening of each month in members’ homes in Providence.

Penpal Matching

We hold penpal 101 info sessions around RI for anyone interested in starting a penpal relationship with a currently incarcerated LGBTQ or HIV+ person through Black and Pink. Please be in touch at if you are interested in us holding a session for your community group.  You can also read more and sign up for a penpal online today at

End Solitary RI campaign

We are campaigning to end the use of solitary confinement (“disciplinary confinement” or “segregation”) in the Rhode Island detention centers and the prison/jail (ACI). To learn more, check out this article by one of our members:

Holiday Events

One of our biggest & best events each year is our holiday card-writing party in early December, where we eat food, write, draw, and color postcards for Black and Pink inside members around the country. We also raise money and send a holiday food package to each of our inside members in RI.

Educational workshops

In addition to Penpal 101 trainings, we occasionally we host other events and educational workshops related to the Prison Industrial Complex, including Nalaxone (Overdose Prevention) Trainings.

Local friends and partners

We support all local prison abolitionists! Direct Action for Rights and Equality (DARE)’s Behind the Walls Committee, PrYSM’s Community Defense Project, The AMOR Network, Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee PVD, Students Against the Prison Industrial Complex, and Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP, organized locally by COYOTE RI) all do directly related work in our area.

The American Militia and the Origin of Conscription: A Reassessment

Jeffrey Rogers Hummel, Journal of Libertarian Studies 15, no. 4 (Fall 2001): 29-77.

According to established mythology, American citizens were not conscripted until the Civil War. First the Confederacy and then the Union resorted to the draft to fill their depleting armies. Prior to that, this mythology holds, no draft existed in the United States. The U.S. government fought the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Mexican War solely with volunteers. Toward the end of the War of 1812, the Madison administration did call for conscription, but this request failed due to Daniel Webster’s stirring and frequently reprinted denunciation of the draft on the floor of Congress.

Unfortunately, this halcyon portrait is false in nearly every respect. The only U.S. war fought without conscripts before the Civil War was the Mexican War. American governments, state or national, drafted men not only to fight the Revolution and the War of 1812, but also to wage Indian wars and to suppress the Whiskey Rebellion. Because they employed decentralized militia drafts, however, this fact has often escaped notice. . . .

Der Preisträger

„Ateizm Derneği“ wurde im April 2014 gegründet und ist der erste und einzige atheistische Verein in der Türkei und überhaupt im Nahen Osten. Derzeit werden in der Türkei die Rechte der Einzelnen beschnitten oder einfach ignoriert. Entsprechend leistet der Verein juristische Unterstützung, wenn Atheisten vor Gericht stehen – in der Türkei wird selbst die Aussage „Ich bin Atheist“ schon als eine Beleidigung des Glaubens aufgefasst.
