“The dark web is both an enabler for the trade of illegal weapons already on the black market and a potential source of diversion for weapons legally owned”, said Giacomo Persi Paoli, the report’s lead author. “The ability for criminals and terrorists, as well as vulnerable or fixated individuals, to make virtually anonymous purchases is perhaps the most dangerous aspect.”
On Thursday, US and European law enforcement agencies announced the shutdown of AlphaBay and Hansa, two of the three largest dark web markets.
Dubbed Stargate Command, it’s launching this fall as “the official destination for all things Stargate.” It appears we can expect a platform for pretty much all of the franchise’s related content and fan community. There are apparently more than 380 episodes of Stargate TV shows, so there should be plenty to watch there. Still, even as CBS tries to use the Star Trek franchise to push its CBS All Access service it will be interesting to see how willing fans are to shell out for another subscription just to watch one new show.
Ever wonder what would happen if a clueless American spy like Archer met the very skilled British Kingsman secret agent Eggsy?
In the video “That Time Archer Met Kingsman” — posted by 20th Century Fox on Thursday during its panel at San Diego Comic-Con International — we see actor Taron Egerton’s character Eggsy invade the FXX animated comedy “Archer.”
The British superspy crosses paths with none other than “the world’s greatest spy” Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin).
Archer comes in for a new suit, but ends up accidentally discovering the secret weapons stash hidden inside the Kingsman suit shop as well.
Not surprisingly, the two secret agents don’t quite get along, and decide to settle their differences the best way possible — a drinking contest. Watch the video to see who wins.
Are there different rules for President Trump when it comes to his controversial, bombastic and often abusive tweeting? Twitter says no.
When a group of journalists asked about it earlier this week, the social network’s head of trust and safety Del Harvey, said there’s no double standard regarding Trump, according to Recode.
“We have processes in place to deal with whomever the person may be, we try to be as consistent as possible, as scalable as possible, and there’s always all sorts of context and other things that come into play that make it impossible to comment on hypotheticals as is,” she said while talking about Twitter’s progress on curbing abusive behavior.
“The rules are the rules, we enforce them the same way for everybody.”
Hmmm. Harvey’s eyebrow-raising response comes as a recent poll suggests the president should lay off Twitter and calls to ban on Trump’s tweets. Meanwhile, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has said repeatedly that Trump’s presence (and his 34.2 million followers) on the platform is “really important.”
Trump’s also good for Twitter’s business. Twitter executives have said the platform’s spike to 328 million users is due to its increasing political presence, specifically mentioning a Trump bump. Does this mean that Trump’s July 3 tweet showing him clotheslining CNN doesn’t fall into Twitter’s category of abusive behavior?
The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.
