A step towards Digital Freedom

Setup on Linux

Setting up 1.1.1.1 takes two minutes and requires no technical skill or special software. Even if you’re a computer novice, pick your device below for an easy-to-follow setup guide.
While these steps are for Ubuntu, most Linux distributions configure DNS settings through the Network Manager. Alternatively, your DNS settings can be specified in /etc/resolv.conf
  1. Click the Applications icon on the left menu bar.
  2. Click Settings, then Network.
  3. Find your internet connection on the right pane, then click the gear icon.
  4. Click the IPv4 or IPv6 tab to view your DNS settings.
  5. Set the “Automatic” toggle on the DNS entry to Off.
  6. Provide the 1.1.1.1 DNS addresses in the DNS entries field:
    • For IPv4: 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1
    • For IPv6: 2606:4700:4700::1111,2606:4700:4700::1001
  7. Click Apply, then restart your browser.
  8. You’re all set! Your device now has faster, more private DNS servers ✌️✌️

The world's most powerful supercomputer



A team of researchers led by an experimental physicist from the University of California, John Martinis, created a unique task to test the functionality of the Google host computer. In order to solve the problem, an ordinary Turing machine would take as much as 10,000 years, while a quantum computer could complete a complex calculation in just 200 seconds.

The calculation that a quantum computer successfully handled by Google kindly provided to researchers is the quantum equivalent of generating a very long list of random numbers and checking their values ​​a million times. Despite the fact that the result of the test does not bear the possibility of applying it outside the quantum world, it is of great importance in determining the computing power of the device. In addition, the achievement of Google can help in creating even more powerful and secure quantum computers of the future.

It seems that Google has just been able to make a real revolution in computer science. Using a quantum computer software called Sycamore, a Google spokesman announced a "quantum superiority" over the most powerful supercomputers in the world, because it was with Sycamore that they managed to solve a problem that had long been considered almost impossible to solve on conventional computers .

Do you want to use (or not use) DoH all the time? Use the configuration editor to configure DoH if you want to test DoH outside of a shield study. DoH support works best in Firefox 62 or newer. Shield studies will not override your manual configuration.
1] Type about:config in the location bar
2] Search for network.trr (TRR stands for Trusted Recursive Resolver – it is the DoH Endpoint used by Firefox.)
3] Change network.trr.mode to 2 to enable DoH. This will try and use DoH but will fallback to insecure DNS under some circumstances like captive portals.  (Use mode 5 to disable DoH under all circumstances.)
4] Set network.trr.uri to your DoH server. Cloudflare’s is https://mozilla.cloudflare-dns.com/dns-query but you can use any DoH compliant endpoint.
The DNS tab on the about:networking page indicates which names were resolved using the Trusted Recursive Resolver (TRR) via DoH.


Emma Norton, oncology nurse advisor at Bupa UK, is calling on people to place the nails of their index fingers together, as if making the top of a heart.

Most see a diamond-shaped gap between the nails. If this is missing, it could be a sign of “finger clubbing”, she warns.

This seemingly unusual symptom occurs in up to 35% of lung-cancer patients, according to Cancer Research UK.

“Most people with lung cancer don’t know their fingers are clubbing unless they know specifically to look out for it”, Ms Norton told HuffPost.



“The test is used by medical professionals as a partial method of confirming conditions, but you can also do the test yourself, and it only takes a few seconds.



“If you can’t see any kind of gap beneath your nail beds, this means your fingers are clubbed”.

Ms Norton recommends “sufferers” see their GP as soon as possible.

While it may be easy to panic, clubbed fingers often run in families.
What is finger clubbing?

“Clubbing” describes changes to the shape of the fingers and nails.

It usually starts with the nail bed becoming soft and the surrounding skin shiny.

The nail then looks more curved when viewed from the side.



How does lung cancer cause fingers to “club”?


Exactly why finger clubbing occurs is unclear. It is thought to be caused by fluid collecting in the soft tissues at the end of digits, Cancer Research UK reports.

This may come about due to greater blood flow to the area, or the chemicals or hormones released by tumours.

Low oxygen levels in the blood may also trigger the release of the protein “vascular endothelial growth factor”, according to BMJ Best Practice.

This can lead to swelling and cell division at the “peripheral level in the nails”.



Twitter admitted in a statement that email addresses and phone numbers collected “for safety or
security purposes (for example, two-factor authentication) may have inadvertently been used for
advertising purposes”.

Twitter would not say how many how many users were affected, but confirmed that advertisers could use the details to target adverts to audience lists provided by third-party partners.
In an era of growing mistrust surrounding social media, Green believes that blurring the lines
between authentication features and marketing is a serious problem.

“Convincing users to adopt 2FA systems means that social networks have to be above reproach when it comes to keeping their data private,”

Although several methods of 2FA, the fact that the vast majority of people carry smartphones
SMS convenient option

Facebook’s behavior is the sort of thing that drives people away from using this very effective protection,and makes them take greater risks online,” Green said.
Rights groups echoed the concerns, reflecting that Facebook had Facebook admitted to committing
he same indiscretion


“Earlier this year,(which users believed to be) provided for the express purpose of2FAboth searchable and target for advertising by default. Disclosing or using information providedfor security purposes for any other purpose, including advertising,is unacceptable.”


PostBox


The Post Box application ( download ) allows you to combine all the notifications that come to you during the day, sending them at once at the selected time. Thus, you can not jerk every time the next notification arrives, but view everything at a time. It is assumed that due to this it will be possible to significantly reduce the number of user calls to their smartphones. Just install the Post Box, choose how many times a day you want to receive collections with notifications, and set a time.
