Joy, the Internet is Here!

Andrea from Morningside

The internet is here!
Oh jolly good we said
We can persecute the living
And celebrate the dead

We’ll talk up all the old things
And make the present bad
And look forward to a future… View more
The internet is here!
Oh jolly good we said
We can persecute the living
And celebrate the dead

We’ll talk up all the old things
And make the present bad
And look forward to a future
That no one yet has had

We’ll become experts in all matters
That once were out of our bounds
And run select secret societies
All hidden underground

We’ll mine for money whilst sleeping
And see planets beyond the moon
Whilst never leaving our armchairs
Or the comfort of our room

And when the children’s voices
Vanish from the streets
We’ll put it down to friends on Facebook
And watch their Google meets

We’ll research how to garden
And go online and buy the tools
Then contact our local handyman
Because we’re told outside is for the fools

We'll be asked by the Facebook Gods
'What is on your minds'
And answer them with integrity
and then be moderated for being unkind

Yes, the Internet has made man-kind
And for that we are forced to pay
Without the knowing of what the future holds
As for hindsight, we’ll turn that knowledge away

A thought provoking article for this mornings readers..🌄
Australia's two most populous states are trialling facial recognition software that lets police check people are home during COVID-19 quarantine, expanding trials that have sparked controversy to the vast majority of the country's population.
While the recognition technology has been used in countries like China, no other democracy has been reported as considering its use in connection with coronavirus containment procedures.
The UN has warned against facial rcognition technology, arguing it could pose a serious danger to human rights -
"Facial recognition technology might seem like a convenient way to monitor people in quarantine but ... if something goes wrong with this technology, the risk of harm is high".

Ardern says Black Caps could have been attacked in Pakistan

Brian from New Lynn

The one-day and T20 series has been cancelled with New Zealand Cricket citing a security alert in a massive blow to Pakistan's hopes of staging regular international games.

The tour was due to get underway with the first of three one-dayers in Rawalpindi on Friday but New Zealand did not travel to the stadium. New Zealand Cricket (NZC) then issued a statement announcing their decision to call off the tour. "Following an escalation in the New Zealand Government threat levels for Pakistan, and advice from NZC security advisors on the ground, it has been decided the Blackcaps will not continue with the tour," it said.
NZC declined to share details of the security threat and said arrangements were being made for the team's departure. Pakistan's Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed said Pakistan security agencies did not have any such information. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said NZC had "unilaterally decided to postpone the series" despite "foolproof security arrangements" made for the matches. "The Pakistan Prime Minister spoke personally to the Prime Minister of New Zealand and informed her that we have one of the best intelligence systems in the world and that no security threat of any kind exists for the visiting team," the PCB said in a statement. "PCB is willing to continue the scheduled matches. However, cricket lovers in Pakistan and around the world will be disappointed by this last minute withdrawal." Newly-appointed PCB chairman Ramiz Raja, a former Pakistan captain, said they would approach the International Cricket Council (ICC) over what transpired on a "crazy day". "Walking out of the tour by taking a unilateral approach on a security threat is very frustrating. Especially when it's not shared!! Which world is NZ living in?? NZ will hear us at ICC," Raja tweeted.
PM backs pullout
===============
New Zealand, minus several frontline players, were visiting Pakistan for the first time in 18 years and were also due to play five Twenty20 matches in Lahore. Top teams have largely shunned Pakistan following an attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009 that killed six policemen and two civilians. "I understand this will be a blow for the PCB, who have been wonderful hosts, but player safety is paramount and we believe this is the only responsible option," NZC chief executive David White said. Prime Minister Ardern backed NZC's decision to end the tour. "I know how disappointing it will be for everyone that the game hasn't gone ahead, but we totally support the decision that's been made. Player safety has to be paramount," she said in a statement. More disappointment could be in store for the PCB with England now reconsidering what was to be their first Pakistan visit in 16 years to play two T20 matches in Rawalpindi next month. "We are liaising with our security team who are on the ground in Pakistan to fully understand the situation," an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) spokesperson said. The ECB Board will decide in the next few days if the tour should proceed. Pakistan captain Babar Azam summed up the sentiments in Pakistan where fans have been starved of live action involving top teams. "Extremely disappointed on the abrupt postponement of the (NZ) series, which could have brought the smiles back for millions of Pakistan cricket fans," tweeted the batsman.
