Billie Holiday - Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans (
From the text:"If the NSA can hack Petrobras, the Russians can justify attacking Exxon/Mobil. If GCHQ can hack Belgacom to enable covert wiretaps, France can do the same to AT&T. If the Canadians target the Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy, the Chinese can target the U.S. Department of the Interior. We now live in a world where, if we are lucky, our attackers may be every country our traffic passes through except our own. Which means the rest of us - and especially any company or individual whose operations are economically or politically significant - are now targets. All cleartext traffic is not just information being sent from sender to receiver, but is a possible attack vector. Here’s how it works."
This is a story of child labor in the 1900s as described and portrayed by acclaimed photographer and sociologist Lewis Hine. His work with the National Child Labor Committee brought about changes in policies surrounding the issue and helped shaped society’s views. His documentation of the underaged members of America’s labor backbone showed just how child laborers lived and worked back then.- http://bit.ly/1cDbiyM
