What are your thoughts on filen? I don't seem to be able to find a community for them here, but it seems like a pretty solid up and coming company for secure cloud storage options.

The (Ontario Health) coalition, which advocates for improvements to the public health care system, is documenting experiences like Zammit's at hearings around rural Ontario this month. With input from opposition critics, the network of over 400 grassroot organizations wants to draft recommendations on how to improve local hospitals, especially in rural areas.

Executive director Natalie Mehra said it will follow their report last year, which recorded almost 1,200 emergency room closures in the province.

"The goal is to push the Ford government and stop them from continuing to shut down and dismantle public health services and sort of destroy them through privatization," said Mehra.

The province is budgeted to spend $85 billion on health care this year, she noted.

Zammit said she didn't see that funding reflected on the ground.

Adidas has launched an investigation into allegations of large-scale bribery in China after the company received a whistleblower complaint that accused senior staff of embezzling "millions of euros", the Financial Times reported on Sunday.

The anonymous letter, which claims to have been written by "employees of Adidas China", names several Chinese Adidas employees including a senior manager involved with the marketing budget in the country, which the document said stood at 250 million euros ($267.5 million) a year, the FT reported.

Adidas confirmed that it had received an anonymous letter on June 7 indicating potential compliance violations in China. The German sportswear company said it was investigating this matter together with external legal counsel.

"Adidas takes allegations of possible compliance violations very seriously and is clearly committed to complying with legal and internal regulations and ethical standards in all markets where we operate," it said in a statement issued in response to a Reuters query. Adidas said it could not provide further information until the investigation was completed.

According to the FT, the letter alleges that Adidas staff received kickbacks from external service providers who were commissioned by the company that include "millions in cash from suppliers, and physical items such as real estate". China sales of the German sportswear giant grew by 8% in the first-quarter, the company reported earlier.

Show is Yoru no Kurage wa Oyogenai - Jellyfish can't swim in the night

Probably spoilers. Last warning.

spoilerHere: https://yorukura.fandom.com/wiki/Kiui_Watase

I did this based on this scene from episode 11: https://streamable.com/oq226r

Comrade Kiui is FtM.

Not only that but his name "Watase" splits into "Wata" which means "crossing" or "ferry," often used in Japanese names to imply traversing a river or similar feature, hinting at transitions or change. While "se" meaning "rapids" or "change" is also another blatantly huge clue.

I haven't worked out what Kiui might reference, it's written in Katakana and some think it's the Kiwi bird. I don't know if this is related or not, someone else might.

From wiki page - The woman in the painting is Anna Christina Olson (May 3, 1893 – January 27, 1968). Anna had a degenerative muscular disorder, Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease, which meant that she had not been able to walk since she was a young child. She was firmly against using a wheelchair and so she would crawl everywhere. Wyeth was inspired to create the painting when he saw her crawling across a field while he was watching from a window in the house. He had a summer home in the area and was on friendly terms with Olson, using her and her younger brother as the subjects of paintings from 1940 to 1968. Olson was the inspiration and subject of the painting, but she was not the primary model; Wyeth's wife Betsy posed as the torso of the painting. Olson was 55 at the time that Wyeth created the work.

After five years of pioneering research into the abuse of social platforms, the Stanford Internet Observatory is winding down. Its founding director, Alex Stamos, left his position in November. Renee DiResta, its research director, left last week after her contract was not renewed. One other staff member's contract expired this month, while others have been told to look for jobs elsewhere, sources say.

Some members of the eight-person team might find other jobs at Stanford, and it’s possible that the university will retain the Stanford Internet Observatory branding, according to sources familiar with the matter. But the lab will not conduct research into the 2024 election or other elections in the future.

The shutdown comes amid a sustained and increasingly successful campaign among Republicans to discredit research institutions and discourage academics from investigating political speech and influence campaigns.

SIO and its researchers have been sued three times by conservative groups alleging that its researchers colluded illegally with the federal government to censor speech, forcing Stanford to spend millions of dollars to defend its staff and students.

In parallel, Republican House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan and his Orwellian “Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government” have subpoenaed documents at Stanford and other universities, selectively leaked fragments of them to friendly conservative outlets, and misrepresented their contents in public statements.

And in an actual weaponization of government, Jordan’s committee has included students — both undergraduates and graduates — in its subpoena requests, publishing their names and putting them at risk of threats or worse.

The remnants of SIO will be reconstituted under Jeff Hancock, the lab’s faculty sponsor. Hancock, a professor of communication, runs a separate program known as the Stanford Social Media Lab. SIO’s work on child safety will continue there, sources said.

Two of SIO’s major initiatives — the peer-reviewed Journal of Online Trust and Safety and its Trust and Safety Research Conference — will also continue. (The journal is funded through a separate grant from the Omidyar Network.)

But in quietly dismantling SIO, the university seems to have calculated that the lab had become more trouble than it is worth.

In a statement emailed after publication, Stanford strongly disputed the fact that SIO is being dismantled. "The important work of SIO continues under new leadership, including its critical work on child safety and other online harms, its publication of the Journal of Online Trust and Safety, the Trust and Safety Research Conference, and the Trust and Safety Teaching Consortium," a spokesperson wrote. "Stanford remains deeply concerned about efforts, including lawsuits and congressional investigations, that chill freedom of inquiry and undermine legitimate and much needed academic research – both at Stanford and across academia."

"Diese abscheuliche Tat muss rasch Konsequenzen haben": Mehrere junge Menschen greifen zwei ghanaische Mädchen in Grevesmühlen an. Nur eine von mehreren rassistisch motivierten Straftaten an diesem Wochenende in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Das Bundesland gibt zum Start der Fußball-EM ein abscheuliches Bild ab.

"Skandieren verfassungsfeindlicher Parolen - Polizei sucht Zeugen", "Zeugenaufruf nach Körperverletzung in Penkun", "Volksverhetzung und Angriff auf Polizeibeamte nach Public Viewing in Warnemünde", "Polizeieinsatz auf dem Marienplatz", "Rechte Parolen in Neubrandenburg skandiert - Polizei sucht weitere Zeugen" und "Polizeieinsatz Grevesmühlen". Hinter diesen Überschriften verbergen sich Pressemeldungen der Polizei in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern an diesem Wochenende. Hinter diesen Pressemeldungen verbergen sich Dutzende Menschen, meist deutsch, männlich und jung, die als Tatverdächtige ausgemacht oder nach denen noch gesucht wird. Hinter diesen Tatverdächtigen verbergen sich rassistische Gesänge, volksverhetzende Gesten und rohe Gewalt.

Wer an diesem Wochenende die Schlagzeilen aus Mecklenburg-Vorpommern verfolgt, muss erschüttert sein. Was mit ausländerfeindlichen Umdichtungen von Gigi D'Agostinos "L'amour toujours", vorgetragen unter anderem von gut betuchten Partygästen auf Sylt, vor einigen Wochen begann, bestimmt derzeit das polizeilich erfasste Geschehen in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Pünktlich zum Auftakt der Fußball-Europameisterschaft. Unter wehenden Deutschlandfahnen stimmen einige DFB-"Fans" vor etlichen Zeugen "Deutschland den Deutschen - Ausländer raus" an. In Rostock-Warnemünde kommt es im Zuge dessen zu einer gewalttätigen Auseinandersetzung mit Polizeibeamten. Auch ein 15-jähriges Mädchen soll freudig mitgegrölt haben.

In Schwerin stellen sich am Samstag rund 20 Männer unbehelligt auf die Schlossbrücke. Mitten vor den Landtag. Sie stehen oberkörperfrei da, zeigen unbehelligt den Hitlergruß. Eine Frau filmt sie. Die Polizei kann im Nachgang nur nach Zeugen suchen. Die Tatverdächtigen sind da schon längst verschwunden. Am Freitagabend kommen die Beamten dagegen rechtzeitig zum Tatort am Schweriner Marienplatz. Sie nehmen einen 45-jährigen Deutschen fest. Er hatte zuvor einen 33-jährigen Algerier mit einem Messer im Gesicht verletzt. Der Mann kommt in ein Krankenhaus.

Im äußersten Südosten des Bundeslandes wird in der Nacht zu Samstag ein 24-jähriger Deutscher Opfer einer Gewalttat. Auf der Festwiese in Penkun erleidet der zum Tatzeitpunkt stark alkoholisierte Mann einen Nasen- und Fingerbruch. Sechs bis sieben Personen sollen laut einer Zeugenschilderung auf ihn eingeschlagen haben. Zuvor soll auch in der Gemeinde im Landkreis Vorpommern-Greifswald die gängige Melodie mit umgedichtetem, ausländerfeindlichem Text erklungen sein. Die Polizei schreibt, der Verletzte habe ein "südländisches Aussehen, einen Zusammenhang mit dem Grölen der Parolen und der Straftat wird nicht ausgeschlossen".

Unter der Überschrift "Polizeieinsatz Grevesmühlen" ist indes eine besonders verächtliche Tat zusammengefasst. Am Freitagabend greift eine Gruppe von rund 20 Personen zwei kleine Mädchen an. Sie sind acht und zehn Jahre alt. Sie stammen aus Ghana. Dem jüngeren Mädchen treten mehrere Personen ins Gesicht. Die Eltern der Kinder greifen ein. Auch der Vater wird leicht verletzt. Als die Polizei anrückt, beleidigt eine unbekannte Person die Opfer noch rassistisch. Bei den Tatverdächtigen soll es sich laut den Beamten um Jugendliche und Heranwachsende handeln.

British daily Financial Times claims Xi issued the warning in meeting with Ursula von der Leyen in April 2023.

China's President Xi Jinping told European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen that Washington was trying to “goad Beijing into attacking Taiwan,” the Financial Times said on Saturday.

In a report based on information from people familiar with the matter, the British daily said Xi issued the warning in a meeting with von der Leyen in April 2023. She paid an official visit to China last year which coincided with the state visit of French President Emmanuel Macron.

According to the newspaper, Xi said the US was trying to trick China into invading Taiwan, but that he would not take the bait.

The revelation comes as tensions are high across the Taiwan Strait. China responded to last month's inauguration of Lai Ching-te as Taiwan's new president with military drills around the island, which it claims as its own. Taipei, however, insists on its independence since 1949.

Xi's remarks are probably the first known case of him making the claim to a foreign leader.

The Chinese leader also said that a conflict with the US would undermine his goal of achieving a “great rejuvenation” by 2049.

US officials have, in recent years, increased engagement with Taiwan but the administration says it remains committed to its longstanding one-China policy.

At the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore this month, Chinese Defence Minister Dong Jun said the country's military was ready to “forcefully” stop Taiwan's independence.

Earlier, the Foreign Ministry said those supporting independence for Taiwan would find themselves “crushed.”

Born a serf, Shevchenko was freed in 1838 while a student at the St. Petersburg Academy of Art. His first collection of poems, entitled Kobzar (1840; “The Bard”), expressed the historicism and the folkloristic interests of the Ukrainian Romantics, but his poetry soon moved away from nostalgia for Cossack life to a more sombre portrayal of Ukrainian history, particularly in the long poem “The Haidamaks” (1841). When the secret Brotherhood of Saints Cyril and Methodius was suppressed in 1847, Shevchenko was punished by exile and compulsory military service for writing the poems “The Dream,” “The Caucasus,” and “The Epistle,” which satirized the oppression of Ukraine by Russia and prophesied a revolution.

Though forbidden to write or paint, Shevchenko clandestinely wrote a few lyric poems during the first years of his exile. He had a revival of creativity after his release in 1857; his later poetry treats historical and moral issues, both Ukrainian and universal.

I recently asked if MAS was save to activate windows, it turns out it was as I hoped.

However, I've one last doubt: I downloaded the iso from MASSGRAVE (it-it_windows_10_consumer_editions_version_22h2_updated_may_2024_x64_dvd_49ddadb6.iso) and I installed that already.

Also, I logged in my accounts and used sensible passwords already, should I be worried about this? (I ask because some pirates said the ISO should have been downloaded from Microsoft website :/ ).

Please let me know your opinions
