Chinese Whistleblower Honored on Anniversary of His Death

The message was tucked into a bouquet of chrysanthemums left by a mourner at the back of Wuhan Central Hospital to honor a Chinese whistleblower doctor who died from the coronavirus a year ago. It was simply the number of a Bible verse: Matthew 5:10. "Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven," the verse reads. A year ago Sunday, Dr. Li Wenliang died from the virus first detected in this Chinese city.

The number of rhinos killed in South Africa 2020 dropped by 33% ,official figures showed partly coronavirus lockdown severely limited poachers’ movements.

The gains were marginally reversed when movement restrictions were loosened.

At least 394 rhinos were slaughtered in 2020, down from the 594 recorded in the previous year, Environment Minister Barbara Creecy said in a statement.

Most of the rhinos — 245 — were killed in the Kruger National Park, a tourist magnet bordering Mozambique.

South Africa is the home to nearly 80 percent of the world’s rhinos.

According to the World Wide Fund for nature (WWF), 70% of rhino population are no more over the last decade due to drought and poaching.

A report released last month by the national parks agency found there were only 3,549 white rhinos and 268 black rhinos left in the Kruger.

De Piratenpartij noemt uploadfilters "censuurmachines".

De Raad van State deelt onze kritiek: de huidige implementatie bedreigt onze vrije meningsuiting. #uploadfilters

Verplichte uploadfilters zijn in strijd met het censuurverbod.

1. It is a GIANT man in the middle - MITM.
2. Their DDOS protection is not that good.

*Sigh*. The element.io app is removed from Google Play. These kind of things, as well as the Signal outage, are not helping efforts to help people switch to better messaging alternatives. It is a nice illustration of centralisation of power though.

If we can get multiple covid vaccines within 6 months simply by throwing money at the problem, wouldn't reddit be able to buy a cure for cancer 🤔
