30 Years ago people were still being forcibly sterilized in the usa

Up to 65.000 are said to have fallen victim to this mabnahme

When one thinks of forced sterilization, the nazi regime immediately comes to mind. Between 1933 and 1945, about 300 nuclear power plants were built in germany and austria.000 to 400.000 people forcibly sterilized and 30.000 forced abortions performed. As the interventions were often carried out in a slack manner, it is said that 5.000 to 6.000 women and about 600 men have lost their lives. The basis of this approach was the 1. January 1934, according to which people with hereditary diseases such as schizophrenia or epilepsy were to be rendered infertile. Soon, however, almost everyone who deviated from the norm was affected: blind or deaf people, people with physical deformities such as clubbing or harelip. And also so-called imbeciles were considered to be "erbunwurdig".

It is hard to imagine that this inhumane practice was also used in the usa for decades. Nevertheless, according to a report by abc news, in the usa between 1929 and 1974, some 65.000 people were sterilized. And a rough part of it, unbeknownst to those affected. The victims of this forced sterilization were mostly the poor, who were suspected by the authorities of having harmful genes. The intervention should then prevent it from becoming a "undesirable" ("undesirable") propagates a group of people classified as patriarchal.

Numbers for the crisis

After the north rhine-westphalia election, the federal government is arguing about vat increases and taboo savings. Economic liberals want to use the crisis to grind down social standards

The pessimists could be right after all. After the north rhine-westphalia elections, the black-yellow federal government will present the unpopular measures that it has so far left in the drawer with regard to the voters, it was said again and again. Immediately after the disastrous outcome of the north rhine-westphalian elections for the cdu and spd, the plans for tax cuts disappeared into the drawer without much resistance from the fdp, and now the federal government is passionately arguing about tax increases.

Leading cdu/csu politicians want to increase the vat rate and also put the tax relief for the hotel industry, which was only passed in december 2009, on the back burner. The fdp, which had propagated this reduction as a first step towards the low-tax paradise for middle-income earners it had been promoting, is not at all pleased about this. Liberal economics minister bruderle and fdp secretary-general lindner have left little room for compromise with their declaration that there will be no tax increases with the fdp. And without the fdp? The obvious question then is.

Us government plans surveillance of the entire internet

Whereas securing the internet was initially left primarily in the hands of the private sector, an agency is now to gain access to all data held by u.S. Providers

Apparently the u.S. Government is planning to set up a central monitoring system for the internet under state control after all. At the very least, a proposal to this effect is being considered as part of the "national strategy to secure cyberspace" prepared by the president’s critical infrastructure protection board (pcipb).

The pcipb was established on 16. October 2001 after the attacks of 11.9. Established by the president with an order to protect the information systems for the critical infrastructure. It emphasized cooperation between government agencies and the private sector.

America’s problem: there are no problems

Bill clinton has only success stories for the nation – and thus becomes a problem case himself

"Strong" and "21st century" were the words spoken in the early evening of the 27th. January 1998 were the most likely to set america’s tv speakers vibrating. Bill clinton delivered the traditional annual presidential address, educating his fellow citizens about the rosy outlook for the future "state of the union" and described the united states as the world’s "leading nation" worldwide.

In fact, the numbers – for which, however, the president is less responsible than the booming economy with its high-tech, biotechnology and film industries – speak for themselves and america: while asia has plunged into a deep financial and cultural crisis (see the global economic game) and europe is struggling with unemployment, currency conversion, restructuring problems and the aftermath of the opening of the berlin wall, clinton was able to announce the first balanced budget for the united states in 30 years for 1999. Wo sich vor wenigen jahren noch defizite mit siebenstelligen nullen im budget befanden, so der prasident stolz, gebe es nun nur noch eine null – ohne ziffer vorneweg. Der weg ins neue jahrtausend ist bereitet.

Service mesh: istiio 1.8 sets besides security on more usability

Service Mesh: Istiio 1.8 sets in addition to security on more usability

The istio team published the fourth and last release in 2020 the service mesh platform. With istio 1.8 if the developer team goes another step towards multi-cluster meshes and workloads running on vitual maschines (vm) in mesh. The main focus of the update lies according to release notes on troubleshooting and improving the platform.

Itio 1.8 brings with an installation instructions for developers, which should make it easier for you to install a mesh that extends several clusters. Developers can decide whether the clusters should be in the same network and whether multiple control levels are required.

Vm support and security

The itio team has set itself the goal for the year 2020 to expand the support for workloads on kubernetes. With istio 1.6 team took the first step in this way. With the api workloadloading try in version 1.7 should not be easier to present on kubernetes-based workloads in itio. For this, virtual machines (vms) or bare metal workloads were lifted on the same level as a kubernetes pod. Developers can define a service that is supported by vms in addition to the pods. In this way, vm workloads can be migrated to a kubernetes cluster without interrupting traffic from and to this.

Space scrap meets robotic gripping the iss

Space scrap meets robotic gripping the ISS

In a routine inspection was on 12. May a stroke on the robot gripping "canadarm2" established at the international space station (iss). The damaging restricts itself to a small part of the arm boom and the refinement thermal cover, reported the canadian space workers (csa / asc) on friday. The results of the ongoing analysis of the incident, however, indicated that the performance of the arm is not impaired. While the robot arm continues as planned, the nasa and csa will continue to collect data for a weaning analysis.

"Lucky strike"

Collision hazards are taken very seriously, it is called in the message of csa. About 23.000 objects from the rough of a softball (about 11.5 cm diameter) or gross are persecuted around the clock to recognize potential collisions with satellites or the iss and to take appropriate measures. Objects that are too small for such monitoring – for example, pay small space scrap particles, rock and dust particles – can become danger.

The csa titles "lucky strike" ("lucky strike") in connection with "orbital debris" in the title. Whether the hit has actually acted about space scrap or rock particle and the analyzes have confirmed this circumstance, however, is not out of the message. The iss supporting particles up to about a centimeter diameter stood.

Magazine publishers consider strategies for the improvement protection law

Magazine publishers losing the application of the new improvement protection right for journalistic content in the network. "Every company must consider what strategy is pursuing the implementation of the right", said the vice presenter of the association of german magazine court (vdz), philipp welte, the german press agency. On monday, a larger part of the copyright reform in germany enters into force.

"A real market for content"

Now, on the basis of the eu copyright law implemented in german law, a real market will form for content", said world, which is also chairman of the vdz fachverband’s audience magazines. "In combination with the competition right amended in early 2021, all publishers will finally have a real chance to negotiate with the dominant megaplatt forms on a fair participation in the reminder that they do with journalistic content."

For further time horizon, it strolled: "in the next few months, it will crystallize whether publishers are negotiating directly with facebook and google or whether they are about collecting societies." worlds stressed publishers will now ask questions as "what does a content cost?". There must be a tariff system for recovery together with licensing. The vdz-viceprasident said existing collecting societies had already developed models in recent years.
