Comment Re:Can we stop the Einstein worship now (Score 1) 156

The E= m . c , was formulated by French Mathematician H.Poincaré at 1900!! He Publish the Theory "Sur la dynamique de l’électron", in "Circolo Matematico di Palermo, t. 21, p. 129-176, 1906" In the Book " A History of the Theories of Aether and Electricity (2nd edition), Vol. 1: The Classical Theories" from Sir Edmund Taylor Whittaker, there's plenty of history information about research work of mass and energy. Of course, Einstein give some contribution, but Relativity are most part plagiary, which can be checked by references above.. .

Uber just represent another App get money that intermediate services. Like Radio Taxi Services do and other mobile App. The question here is. There are regulations about transporting people, and its not permitted to anyone without licences to work. OK, regulations, are a mess in many areas and in Taxi services licences its a big source of corruption.

I am not a specialist in laws, but, I follow many movement about Internet Freedom, and I got a copy of the Brazilian Marco Civil (https://www.apc.org/en/blog/marco-civil-brazilian-internet-bill-rights-english), and its not so bad like you express. Guy, have you read the Marco Civil? Have you read the laws in Europe, where for example people can ask to be not founded by search engines?. Where I understood, courts and policy around the world has many requests about information access. And this is one of many cases. This is a very complicate question. While as a citizen no one likes to be scout. Every one likes the hand of justice to catch offenders and terrorists. To my point of view, the judge could rise fines first. Since, every one people or Co, dislike loose money. Reply to This Parent

Comment Why not use SSH or OpenVpn, but before you ... (Score 1) 136

I was thinking about home security in a Global View, neighbors, energy-backup (thieves may down your power connection), internet supplemented connections (thieves may cut you wired internet connection) , store images (secure place with backup). And then look to secure the internet access to:
- view cameras
- control cameras
- control other house system
-> ssh and OpenVPN could help, you could have encryption and login control, tunneling, profile, have scripts, etc.
Its also good thing create an wifi mesh network (or routed wired) with neighbors using VLan where all security traffic will go.

Comment Re: Ha! (Score 1) 480

Paying discussions are very complex, although its not fair who are more productive or creative have better gains, which almost a common sense. The word Merit, may have many means. Be more "friendly", with managers, be a relative to the boss. Or be an asshole. Let all has a minimum paycheck is good thing to support a life where the company are. But, let all ha the same, its really nonsense. There many ways to have a better mix of pay and result, but, standardization line, does not work. While high competitive are also bad, since mostly works need cooperation. And cooperation gets better results. Its like in Sports, non cooperative teams its very difficult to wins.

Well, there's a lot of evidence against many products which is very dangerous to health and their are legal.

Comment In Brazil is very Predictable ! (Score 1) 141

Lets see an Example!
In Brazil, the governor of Parana State, government take the money from the people and give to Judiciary, to help the judges have a lot of privileges and stewardships. A Judge in the beginning of career , get a salary of 20 teachers. Judges receive housing assistance, even they have houses. The value is 2 times a salary of an teacher. All this stewardships, take a price, and the State go Bankrupt. To save state finances, governor have a great idea of to get pension fund of the state public workers.
At same time, many deputies and govern allies are involved in corruption and tax fraud. Judges, left they free.

To pass the vote, government prohibits people from going to parliament and throws bombs on teachers.

Comment "random DNA mutations" (Score 1) 180

Why we have more and more " random DNA mutations" ?
In Brazil, its easy to answer. PESTICIDES.
Almost all Brazilians has a friend or a family member with a cancer case.

Brazil are the biggest pesticides user of the world.
Even pesticides which are prohibited in Africa and China, are free used in Brazil.
Many Farmers use pesticides in excess and/or in wrong way.
Prohibited pesticides come easily from our fragile border control.

I don't have sip proxy, but Snort Rules, may block the ip, and could cause some access problems for Google Services.
