The Smart Home Battle Front And Can Our ISP Interfere With Our Heat?
An ISP warns its customers they could lose remote control of thermostats and security cameras. As our homes become extensions of the cloud, just how vulnerable are we becoming, from security camera blackmail to light switch mischief harassment to disabling ransomware to damage to property and life?

Pirate Bay Founder: Netflix and Spotify Are a Threat, No Solution - TorrentFreak
Pirate Bay founder and former spokesperson Peter Sunde believes that piracy will decrease over time. However, people won't be better off when online media distribution is in the hands of the powerful few. “Netflix, Spotify etc are not a solution, but a loss," he says.

Sacred text as cultural genome: an inheritance mechanism and method for studying cultural evolution: Religion, Brain & Behavior: Vol 7, No 3
Yasha M. Hartberg & David Sloan Wilson

Any process of evolution requires a mechanism of inheritance for the transmission of information across generations and the expression of phenotypes during each generation. Genetic inheritance mechanisms have been studied for over a century but mechanisms of inheritance for human cultural evolution are far less well understood. Sacred religious texts have the properties required for an inheritance system. They are replicated across generations with high fidelity and are transcribed into action every generation by the invocation and interpretation of selected passages. In this article we borrow concepts and methods from genetics and epigenetics to study the “expressed phenotypes” of six Christian churches that differ along a conservative–progressive axis. Their phenotypic differences, despite drawing upon the same sacred text, can be explained in part by differential expression of the sacred text. Since the invocation and interpretation of sacred texts are often well preserved, our methods allow the expressed phenotypes of religious groups to be studied at any time and place in history.

The idea of empire in the "Aeneid" on JSTOR
Let's see...Aeneid, Book VI, ll. 851-853:

tu regere imperio populos, Romane, memento
(hae tibi erunt artes), pacique imponere morem,
parcere subiectis et debellare superbos.'

Which Dryden translated as:
To rule mankind, and make the world obey,
Disposing peace and war by thy own majestic way;
To tame the proud, the fetter'd slave to free:
These are imperial arts, and worthy thee."

If you wanted a literal translation,
"You, Roman, remember to rule people by command
(these were arts to you), and impose the custom to peace,
to spare the subjected and to vanquish the proud."

I don't want to derail your thread but pacique imponere morem -- "to impose the custom to peace"
Does it mean "be the toughest kid on the block," as in Pax Romana?


That 17th century one is a loose translation indeed. Myself I'd put it as

"Remember to rule over (all) the (world's) races by means of your sovereignty, oh Roman, (for indeed) you (alone) shall have the means (to do so), and to inculcate the habit of peace, and to have mercy on the enslaved and to destroy the arrogant."

And thou, great hero, greatest of thy name,
Ordain'd in war to save the sinking state,
And, by delays, to put a stop to fate!
Let others better mold the running mass
Of metals, and inform the breathing brass,
And soften into flesh a marble face;
Plead better at the bar; describe the skies,
And when the stars descend, and when they rise.
But, Rome, 't is thine alone, with awful sway,
To rule mankind, and make the world obey,
Disposing peace and war by thy own majestic way;
To tame the proud, the fetter'd slave to free:
These are imperial arts, and worthy thee."

Google Blocks Pirate Search Results Prophylactically - TorrentFreak
Google is accepting "prophylactic" takedown requests to keep pirated content out of its search results. Caleb Donaldson, copyright counsel at Google, explains that the company is 'removing' infringing links before they are indexed. Aside from these novel features, the company also has high hopes for artificial intelligence.
On an average day, Google processes more than three million takedown notices from copyright holders, and that’s for its search engine alone.
Under the current DMCA legislation, US-based Internet service providers are expected to remove infringing links, if a copyright holder complains.

TV ADDONS Turns Six Years Old Today (Six Years of Unofficial Kodi Addons)
Fast forward a few years, everything was going great until June 2017, when a group of Canada’s biggest telecom companies decided to circumvent copyright law and unlawfully seize our domain names and social media accounts. The court later found that our founder’s rights had been seriously violated, and deemed the entire search and seizure to have been unlawful.
