Russia ratchets up internet control by blocking privacy service Tor

MOSCOW --- Russia stepped up state oversight of internet activity on Wednesday by blocking the website of global privacy service Tor and part of its wider network, with the communications regulator accusing it of enabling access to illegal content. Russia has exerted increasing pressure on foreign tech companies this year over content shared on their platforms and has also targeted virtual private networks (VPN) and other online tools in a campaign critics say stifles internet freedom. The regulator, Roskomnadzor, said the website had been prohibited on the basis of a court decision. "The grounds for this were the placement of information on this website that enable the oper...

Cardel sees silver lining in ‘core’ loss
Alex Cabagnot got injured. Matt Ganuelas-Rosser opted for free agency. Roosevelt Adams is planning a transfer to the Japan B.League. Terrafirma is losing one important rotation player after another and coach Johnedel Cardel has somehow managed to see the bright side in all of this as his team prepares for the resumption of the PBA Governors' Cup, tentatively scheduled early next month. "[I]t's not like this is new," Cardel told the Inquirer on Friday. "We're used to dealing with lineup [problems]." This one, though, is hardly of the Dyip's making. There were no players shipped away in head-scratching deals. Just bad breaks and better offers. "I talked to Roose(velt) befor...Keep on reading: Cardel sees silver lining in ‘core’ loss

His plea came just after a phone call between French President Emmanuel Macron and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, who confirmed there was appetite for more negotiations to de-escalate ratcheting tensions. Russia denies any plans to invade but has demanded wide-ranging security guarantees from the West, including that Ukraine never be allowed to join NATO. Those demands have been the subject of intensive negotiations, with the West warning of far-reaching consequences i...Keep on reading: Ukraine tells West not to ‘panic’ over Russian troop buildup
