The step was justified by the fight against cyber-crime and child pornography. “The fight against cyber-crime and child pornography is a legitimate one, but this step constitutes a real risk for respect of freedom of expression online”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“The real reason for this decision is obviously the desire to keep files on the country’s netizens, watch them and push them into self-censorship.”The move to keep Internet-users under observation comes at the same time as a population census is being held in the countries of the UAE along with a standardisation of ID cards for all citizens. The United Arab Emirates is on Reporters Without Borders’ list of countries under surveillance on its “Internet Enemies” report (http://en.rsf.org/surveillance-united-arab-emirates,36668.html). The authorities have set up effective filtering and on the pretext of blocking pornographic websites, they have made thousands of sites on a wide range of subjects inaccessible.

Phish Shares Pro-Shot Video Of “7 Below” From Baker’s Dozen Night One

first_imgOn July 21, Phish initiated the first of thirteen nights at Madison Square Garden, dubbed the “Baker’s Dozen” run. The opening night bellowed coconuts, with the debut of “Shake Your Coconuts” by Junior Senior, an extended “Reba” jam, and another debut of “Coconut” by Harry Nilsson. During the second set of what is now affectionately known as the “Coconut Show,” after an extraordinary 16+ minute “Tweezer” opener, Jon Fishman took the reins once again, driving the band into “Seven Below” for the second improvisational excursion in as many songs to start set two. “Seven Below” reached some great, minimal, synth-led 80s grooves that evoked a Phil Collins-type sound (think “In The Air Tonight”) with Page absolutely blaring as the song built to another impressive climax. It absolutely set the tone for an incredible second set, which you can read more about here.Phish has shared pro-shot video from this “Seven Below,” which you can watch here:Download the entire show now or stream via LivePhish.[cover photo by Andrew Blackstein]last_img read more
