Is part of Chelsea Manning’s legacy increased surveillance?

By Sanjay Goel , University at Albany, State University of New York The military’s most prolific leaker of digital documents has ushered in an age of even more increased surveillance over government workers. The legacy of Chelsea Manning’s actions is under discussion in the wake of the announcement that the former Army private will be released from military prison in May. In one of his last official acts, President Obama commuted her sentence for violations of the Espionage Act and copying and disseminating classified information. The commutation reduced her sentence from 35 years to the seven years she has already served, plus four additional months needed to effect her release . In 2010, Manning, then presenting as male and going by the first name Bradley, was an intelligence analyst serving in Iraq.

Sony A6500 Review

The Sony a6500 is a faster and more stable version of the Sony A6300 with probably the best image quality and features of any camera in the world. But sometimes a camera needs more than just an awesome spec list so let’s take a look at the Sony Alpha A6500 Mirrorless Camera Review Purchase the Sony A6500: B&H Photo | Adorama | Amazon Quality/Features With 4k video, IBIS in body image stabilization, 11fps RAW bursts, great low light performance, log video, and a host of other options, it’s easy to see why the A6500 is one of the best cameras around beating both mirrorless cameras and the best DSLR cameras from Canon & Nikon. The image quality is probably the best of any APS-C camera currently available and there is nothing else that even comes close for video quality. On the feature side, the A6500 is so packed that the most difficult thing is navigating the menus (which thankfully have improved) and setting up the endless customizable options. The focus system is snappy and accurate with tons of flexibility and control. Unfortunately, the touch AF is not as snappy and I found it extremely unreliable.

Interior Dept. Suspends Tweeting Over National Park Service’s Anti-Trump Retweets

The Department of the Interior temporarily suspended all activity on its Twitter accounts after one of its agencies, the National Park Service , retweeted seemingly critical messages about President Donald Trump on Friday. One retweet involved a post with side-by-side photos suggesting that Trump’s inauguration was poorly attended compared to Barack Obama’s. The NPS also retweeted a post stating that “civil rights, climate change, and health care” had been “scrubbed clean” from the White House website. Looks like the Trump administration hasn't taken control of the @NatlParkService Twitter feed just yet. pic.twitter.com/dCKGHoW0cU — Binyamin Appelbaum (@BCAppelbaum) January 20, 2017 The mandate to stop tweeting came from the Department of the Interior communications team, said NPS’s chief of public affairs, Tom Crosson.

Here’s What’s Really Going On With Mark Zuckerberg’s Hawaiian Land Battle

HONOLULU ― Facebook founder  Mark Zuckerberg is making a lot of noise on the quiet Hawaiian island of Kauai after word got out that lawsuits he filed last month to secure his beachfront estate could force Hawaii residents to sell their inherited land.  Zuckerberg’s 700-acre property, which the billionaire purchased for more than $100 million in 2014, contains almost a dozen smaller parcels known as “kuleana” lands,  according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Local families hold rights to these lands under The Kuleana Act of 1850 and can legally enter Zuckerberg’s estate to reach their parcels. To keep his new property private, three of Zuckerberg’s Hawaii-based companies filed eight lawsuits, called “quiet title and partition” actions, on Dec. 30 against hundreds of people , living and dead, who have partial rights to kuleana lands on the estate, according to court records. A quiet title claim is a common way of establishing real estate ownership, and ultimately may lead to a judge ordering the land sold at auction, the Star-Advertiser reported

Big Changes On White House Website As Donald Trump Takes Over

WASHINGTON ― With a new president comes a new presidential website . Gone are sections like “Civil Rights” and “Reducing Gun Violence” and in are pages like “America First Energy Plan” and “America First Foreign Policy.” But people also quickly noticed that certain pages seemed to have disappeared altogether. Searches for LGBT turn up nothing and the section on climate change goes to a broken link.  Advocacy groups for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer equality quickly condemned the Trump administration for scrubbing mentions of their community. There is a good chance that Trump’s WhiteHouse.gov will not have a specific section on LGBTQ rights.

Barack Obama Tweets As A Private Citizen For First Time

The office of the president has changed hands, and so has the official @POTUS Twitter account. After Barack Obama handed the country and the Twitter handle over to Donald Trump , the outgoing president wasted little time in tweeting from his private Twitter account, which had been basically only used to retweet from the POTUS account since Jan. 19, 2009. Obama may have worried his old account was a little rusty.

Fujifilm Announces the Fuji GFX, X-T20, and X100F

Fujifilm is having a crazy awesome day today and has released 3 new cameras and a host of new lenses in to the wild. The newly released Fuji X-T2 which I recently reviewed was my favorite new camera of 2016 and many of those features have worked their way into these new mirrorless cameras. So let’s have a look at some of the new gear from one of my new favorite camera brands. Preorder: Fujifilm GFX: B&H Photo | Adorama Fujifilm X100F: B&H Photo | Adorama Fujifilm X-T20: B&H Photo | Adorama Fujifilm GFX 50S The Fuji GFX is a medium format monster with 51.4MP, a 3.2″ touchscreen, and a 117pt contrast detection AF system. Compared to Hasselblad’s X1D , the Fuji is significantly larger (although still fairly light for it’s size) but as a result of the mirrorless design, it remains smaller than other medium format cameras.
