Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer and Safari are all dropping support for older versions of the onlin e security protocol TLS, used in practically any encrypted exchange online. While few people or machines are using the long-unsafe TLS 1.0 and 1.1, they’re still permitted in many connections — but no t for long #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

AceNewsDesk – Oct.16: Transport Layer Security is a community-developed standard that got its 1.0 release nearly 20 years ago: It and its close relative, 1.1, have known flaws that make them unsafe to use for any secure communications. 1.2 addressed these major flaws in 2008 and is currently used by the vast majority of clients. 1.3, released earlier this year, both improves and streamlines the standard, but as yet has only a limited presence online as many servers and services haven’t been updated to support it #AceNewsDesk reports

The messy, musical process behind the web’s new security standard

Mozilla, Google, Microsoft and WebKit all made separate but similar announcements on their blogs, essentially that the old versions, 1.0 and 1.1, will be phased out by early 2020 — March specifically for some, which we can take as a general indicator for the others.

“Two decades is a long time for a security technology to stand unmodified,” wrote Microsoft’s Kyle Pflug. “While we aren’t aware of significant vulnerabilities with our up-to-date implementations of TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1, vulnerable third-party implementations do exist. Moving to newer versions helps ensure a more secure Web for everyone.”

As a user you don’t need to do a thing. The browsers and apps you use will work just as they have before — chances are they’re all using 1.2 already. Mozilla shared a chart showing that only a smattering of connections it sees use the earlier versions:

These connections, low by proportion but still numerous, could be lots of things. Legacy machines embedded here are there; old apps for which the security stack hasn’t been updated in years; hacked devices. It’s almost certainly not you or even your parents.

The long lead time is given because of the possibility (nay, inevitability) that there are some critical systems (for example in aging municipal infrastructure) that will cease to work because of this change. People need time to do a real audit, although they probably should have done it years ago.

This move should make everyone a little safer online, though everything will continue to act exactly as it did before. That’s by design.

FEATURED BLOGGER: Umbrella By //yadadarcyyada #Donnamazing

Standard

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Dr. Seuss was correct (always, even if he might not have said this one, who knows, but he makes me smile).


Nothing can protect you from the storms of life, not enough the biggest umbrella (thanks Rhianna/Jay-Z, I’ll never get that song out of my head).

Put on those rain boots, galoshes, rubbers, overshoes, Wellies, whatever and go out and dance in the rain. Stand in it. Sit. Sleep.

Those storms are going to come, whether you fear them or not.
Change is going to come whether you fear it or not.
The lightning strikes of technology.
The rumbling thunder of racism.


The pelting hail of misinformation.
The sleet of corruption.

The hurricanes of hate.
The tornadoes of greed.
The slapping winds of regression.
Face them. Fight them. Survive them. But you can’t avoid them.

Ignoring something never made it go away. Get stormy, let your inner Mary Poppins out, and get on with it.

Too often in my life I’ve missed out on good, hell, amazing things because I was afraid. My fear stopped me. Siting on my shoulder, claws curled into my trembling flesh, cackling in my ear about how I was going to fail, how it wasn’t going to turn out anyway (it rarely did), I was going to get hurt, I was going flounder, or goof…

I was going to ruin things, even ruin my life https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/01/04/so-youve-ruined-your-lifenow-what/ I listened, avidly, to the voice of fear, so I missed out on smiling because it happened.

Much of what we fear stems from what we’ve learned, consciously or subconsciously.
Fear is actively used in: child-rearing, schooling, work, play, sports, politics, science, religion, movies, TV, books, business, and well, everything – then we’re shocked/surprised that fear rules us? Sometimes those fears are irrational and sometimes: “be afraid, be very afraid”.

So many fears…Fear of the dark comes from fear of the unknown (what’s out there I can’t see?).
Fear of strangers, immigrants, different races? Just people you don’t know yet.

Fear of snakes? Boo, hiss!
Fear of antiques? That gets old fast.
Fear of spiders? Sorry Charlotte, you know I love you (and your web), but you’re super creepy looking.

Fear of bananas? That’s bananas!
Fear of time? But it’s so wibbly wobbly timey wimey.

Fear of falling asleep? Probably good away after a good night’s sleep.
Fear of Trump? Well, duh, that’s rational.


Fear of failure? It has all happened before and it will all happen again.
Fear of success? I could live with that.

Fear of heights? You never want to get to the bottom of things with that one, but I could fall for that fear.
Fear of planes, trains, and automobiles? Really, it’s a hilarious movie.


Fear of books? What?!? The?!? No, just no.
Fear of fear? Nothing to fear but…

Yoda got it so right, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering”.

“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.” ~C.S. Lewis
Some days I feel I’ve lost something, or am missing something. In those times, I go about my life with a weird, niggling feeling gnawing at the base of my skull.
Slowly I come to the same conclusion, it feels like fear, but it’s grief. Loss of loved ones, loss of health, loss of what could have been, loss of civility, loss of decency, loss of honour, loss of dreams as they fade into changed expectations.


Yet, at these moments, “There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.” Jane Austen, my courage hasn’t always risen – I’ve been intimidated, dispirited, badgered, ruffled, browbeaten, disheartened, constrained…But sorry not sorry that’s a thing of the past (and it can stay there) https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/07/15/see-you-again/


Fear is likely even part of my procrastination issues https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/. I’ve made a promise, to myself, to let my courage flag fly, I can’t always let them grind me down…

I used to believe if I tried to control everything I could control, even conquer my fear. That I could stop bad things from happening. Nope. The only thing I can control is how I react to fear. How I react to the bad things.

I’m out of control and loving it (when I’m not terrified beyond words).
Trust yourself. Respect yourself. Not the Fear. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/08/17/all-were-asking-is-for-a-little-respect/

And I hope you know, you can always stand under my umbrella (not with the Umbrella Corporation, they suck), or dance with me in the rain.

Asteroid Ryugu from Hayabusa2 This big space diamond has an estimated value of over 80 billion dollars in va luable metals but its more important as it carries information on how our ‘ Solar System ‘ formed billions of years ago #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – Aug.22: It’s only diamond in shape, though — asteroid 162173 Ryugu is thought to be composed of mostly nickel and iron.: Asteroids like Ryugu are interesting for several reasons, perhaps foremost because they are near the Earth and might, one day in the far future, pose an impact threat. In the nearer term, Ryugu is interesting because it may be possible to send future spacecraft there to mine it, thus providing humanity with a new source of valuable metals………………..Scientifically, Ryugu is interesting because it carries information about how our Solar System formed billions of years ago, and why its orbit takes it so close to Earth. Japan’s robotic spacecraft Hayabusa2 just arrived at this one-kilometre wide asteroid in late June #AceNewsDesk reports

https://t.me/nasa_apod/705: The featured image shows surface structures unknown before spacecraft Hayabusa2’s arrival, including rock fields and craters.

Tribute to Jacksons: Joe Jackson, the father of music legends Michael & Janet Jackson, has died at age 89, his family said he passed away early on Wednesday morning: He had been in hospital for terminal pancreatic cancer, according to media reports: His death comes just two days after the anniversary of his son Michael Jackson’s death nine years ago #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – June,28: The family patriarch played a large role in the careers of The Jackson 5, as well as Michael and Janet Jackson: His death was confirmed on social media by some of his family, including his daughter La Toya Jackson and grandsons Taj and Randy Jackson #AceNewsDesk reports

Pop star Michael Jackson and his father Joe Jackson gestures to his fansReuters

Joe Jackson, seen here with his son Michael, had been in hospital for terminal cancer

Domineering father

Five of Joe Jackson’s sons – Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael – became the Jackson 5, joined at times by younger brother Randy, who also pursued a solo career.

Three daughters – LaToya, Rebbie, and, most famously, Janet – all fashioned their own pop careers under Jackson’s management, with varying levels of recognition.

Jackson was the architect of his children’s early successes, but some of them would later say he drove them with a zeal that bordered on abuse, with Michael and others alleging bullying, physical abuse and punishing work schedules.

Jackson later admitted that he had whipped Michael, but denied it could be categorised as a beating. “I whipped him with a switch and a belt. I never beat him. You beat someone with a stick,” he told the BBC’s Louis Theroux in 2003.

The interview made headlines after Jackson said in response to a question about Michael, “We don’t believe in gays. I can’t stand them.”

The Jackson family was famously riven over the years by internal strife, which often played out in the full glare of the public eye, with various estrangements and arguments over money making their way through the courts.

Speaking to the Daily Mail before his father died on Wednesday, Jermaine Jackson said some members of the family were unable to gain access to Jackson in his final days.

“No one knew what was going on – we shouldn’t have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this,” he said.

“We have been hurting. We were not being told where he was and couldn’t get the full picture.”

Early life

Jackson was born in 1928 in Fountain Hill, Arkansas and was the eldest of five children.

He described his own father, a university professor, as a domineering and strict presence.

Jackson nurtured ambitions of being a boxer and later played guitar with a blues band, The Falcons, but failed to win a recording deal.

In 1949 he married Katherine Scruse, a former classmate from Washington High School in East Chicago, Indiana. She raised their children while Jackson worked at a local steel mill.

In 1957, they lost a child, Brandon, to stillbirth. He would have been Marlon’s twin brother.

During the 1960s, Jackson took control of his sons’ burgeoning musical efforts and the Jackson 5 was born, later signing to Motown records in 1967.

The Jackson 5 splintered as Michael’s solo career took off and he distanced himself from his father’s management.

Jackson focused instead on his daughter Janet, who went on to become a massive star.

Jackson reportedly carried on a decades long extra-marital affair with Cheryl Terrell, a secretary 20 years his junior. The pair had a daughter, his 11th child, Joh’Vonnie, who is now 43, but Jackson remained married to Katherine all along.

He is survived by Katherine, who is 88, and nine of his 11 children.

For the first time, music videos will count towards the official singles chart, in a shake-up to the way music consumption is measured for the weekly countdown: Both free and paid-for streams will qualify, although subscription services will carry a heavier weight in calculations: One hundred paid-for streams will equate to one sale, but it will take 600 ad-funded streams to make up the same figure #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – June.25: Previously the chart was compiled from sales of downloads, CD and vinyl, and streams of audio tracks: Now music video streams and downloads will all count – as long as they are an official video accessed via YouTube, Apple, Tidal or Spotify #AceNewsDesk reports

YouTube has more than one billion users across 88 countries

Both free and paid-for streams will qualify, although subscription services will carry a heavier weight in calculations.

One hundred paid-for streams will equate to one sale, but it will take 600 ad-funded streams to make up the same figure.

The changes were first considered four years ago, when audio streaming began to be included in the calculations.

Both video and audio streams will now be weighted equally.

The Official Charts Company chief executive Martin Talbot said: “In the modern era, artists are increasingly multi-faceted creators, with a highly developed visual sense running in parallel with their music.

“The addition of video ensures that The Official Singles Chart reflects the creativity of the artist in the broadest way possible – and music fans’ engagement with that vision.”

Established audio services Apple and Spotify have both recently added dedicated music video sections to their platforms.

The change also comes just before YouTube is to launch its own subscription service.

The ‘Ed Sheeran effect’ provoked a rule change for The Official Charts Company

Since launching in 2005, YouTube has amassed more than one billion users across 88 countries, proving particularly popular with a younger audience.

The most watched music video of 2017 was Despacito, which has been viewed more than 5.2 billion times.

The song – which translates as “slowly” in Spanish – is sung by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee.

A remix of the tune featuring Justin Bieber meant that the pop star knocked himself off the top spot for most streamed song of all time, with his solo hit Sorry.

Would YOU Pay as a Facebook user to access some of sites most popular groups: As they are trialling subscrip tion fees for its online communities, with prices ranging from $4.99 (£3.80) to $29.99 (£22.80) a month even though Zuckerberg has said it does not take a cut of the fees but Google and Apple will take a pe rcentage of any digital goods sold within an app from the Play Store and App Store, respectively #AceNewsDes k reports

#AceNewsDesk – June.21: The social network has started to trial monthly subscription fees for its online communities, with prices ranging from $4.99 (£3.80) to $29.99 (£22.80) a month: Facebook groups around parenting, cooking, and home cleaning are the first to get access to the new feature…………..It’s unclear how many paid-for groups are available on the social network today, although Facebook says the latest trial is ‘very small’…………..Existing free groups will remain unchanged, however, those who manage these communities will now have the option to add a premium sub-group…………For example, lifestyle blogger Sarah Mueller’s Declutter My Home group, which counts 45,900 members on Facebook, has launched an ‘Organise My Home’ sub-group that costs $14.99 (£11.40) a month to join #AceNewsDesk reports

Facebook communities can now create paid-for groups that charge a monthly access fee for exclusive content, including posts, live Q&As, videos and meet-ups and events. Pictured: Blogger Sarah Mueller’s Organise My Home group that costs $14.99 (£11.40) a month to join

Facebook says subscription fees will allow administrators who manage popular groups to earn some money in exchange for the time they spend creating content and cultivating these online communities.

Alex Deve, Facebook Product Director of Groups, said: ‘We hear from group admins that they’re looking for ways to help them earn money to deepen engagement with their members and continue to support their communities.

‘Many admins do this today by creating an additional subscribers-only group that sits alongside their existing group, and rely on additional tools to track and collect payments.

‘Subscription groups were created to make it easier for admins to provide these experiences with built-in tools, and to save them time so they can focus on offering members-only content.’

Facebook subscriptions will only be available on iOS and Android during this trial period.

Users can subscribe to a new group via the Facebook smartphone app, as well as manage existing subscriptions.

Monthly subscriptions can be cancelled at any time, with no commitment to sign-up for a set number of months.

It’s unclear whether Facebook users will relish the chance to support the online communities they take part in, or whether the introduction of a paywall will turn away group members.

Facebook believes the new revenue stream will help groups create better content, such as more frequent posts and video content, as well as events in the real-world.

Monthly subscriptions are managed via the iOS and Android app, with no support for the paid-for Facebook groups on desktop yet

Groups around parenting, cooking, and home cleaning will be the first to get the new feature as part of an early pilot scheme

Grown and Flown Parents is another group trialling the subscription fee option.

It has built a new ‘College Admissions and Affordability’ group which charges $29.99 (£22.80) a month to connect parents of high school-age children to speak to college counsellors to help them prepare for the college application process.

Facebook Groups boss Alex Deve said: ‘As we learn from this pilot and understand how group members feel about subscription groups, we’ll continue to improve this experience to help admins offer more to their members and continue to invest in their communities.’

As it stands, Facebook will not be taking a cut of the subscription fees set by group administrators.

However, as is standard policy for all in-app purchases, Google and Apple will take a percentage of any digital goods sold within an app from the Play Store and App Store, respectively.

Subscription fees is the first real attempt from Facebook to monetise its popular group feature.

Unlike the News Feed, this portion of the social network does not rely on advertising revenue.

The news comes as Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg did not rule-out a subscription plan for the social network while testifying in front of US Congress.

Among the swathe of issues discussed at the hearing in April, which was called in the wake of the devastating Cambridge Analytica data breach, senators hounded Zuckerberg on the possibility the Menlo Park-based social network could require users to pay to use an ad-free version of Facebook.

‘In order to not run ads at all, we would need some sort of business model,’ the multi-billionaire said.

However, Zuckerberg insisted that whatever the company had planned for the future – it would always provide a free, ad-supported version of its service.

‘There will always be a version of Facebook that is free,’ he told senators.

‘It is our mission to try to help connect everyone around the world and bring the world closer together. In order to do that, we believe we need to offer a service that everyone can afford.’
