Airbnb related GDPR scam alert


Airbnb related GDPR scam alert

Journalists from an Austrian publication make an analysis of the data protection regulation, reaching some shocking conclusions.

Kurier writes that the rules imposed by the GDPR could cause an inconvenience to those who were uncomfortable. "To be honest, if you want to continue using Google and Facebook, you will blindly accept the terms and conditions pages.But it will be much easier to remove your address from a small business mailing list (if you are not sure). This could mean that businesses will have to use Google to continue to reach customers ... ", says the Austrian publication.

At the same time, the regulation is also criticized by a German publication, which warns that it does not provide answers to many questions.

The Netherlands took a serious action against Airbnb

Airbnb has quickly become one of the most popular accommodation services when you go on holiday. More and more people prefer "on demand" to the detriment of traditional ones, and much faster payment processing contributes to this choice.

The popularity of the service has given rise to more or less conventional businesses. People started buying or renting apartments to list Airbnb for profit. Even though most countries do not have a problem with this, it is not the case of the Netherlands, namely Amsterdam, who was tired of Airbnb tenants.

If until now the citizens of Amsterdam, one of the most visited cities in the world, were allowed to rent their dwellings through Airbnb for 60 days a year, this period was now reduced to 30 days due to the disaffection of the tenants in the various buildings of homes that no longer tasted of the "diversity" of sporadic neighbors, some of them even scandalous.

Practically, for a city assaulted by millions of tourists every year, such a decision would reduce the number of scandals broke in certain areas and would even help to decongest traffic in an overcrowded city. Several tourist centers, such as Paris, London or New York, also resort to laws limiting the duration of the Airbnb rental of a home.

The Tower of Pisa mystery uncovered


For nearly 1,000 years, the Tower of Pisa resisted many: earthquakes, Mussolini and other straightening attempts. A new study by a European engineering team shows why the tower is so "rebellious" and "stubborn".

He did not want to turn (rebellious) nor collapsed (stubbornly) for the same reason: the soft ground at the base of it. Thus, the interaction between the tower's foundation and the soft soil gave it a bizarre (unstable) stability.

Engineers solve the mystery of the still-standing Leaning Tower of Pisa
6 days ago ... The Leaning Tower of Pisa is notable for its slant — and also because it's managed to stay standing through four or more significant ...

Several strong earthquakes struck Italy since the construction of the tower in 1173, the existence of which is known from various chronicles from the time of the Holy Roman Empire . However, none of these events led to a change in the axis of the Tower in Pisa, according to Popular Science .

Researchers have come to the conclusion, after analyzes, that if an earthquake hit the area, the soft soil, the height and robustness of the tower would not vibrate as much as the adjacent structures.

"Ironically, the same soil that caused instability and led the tower to the point of crash has the merit of helping construction to survive seismic events," said engineer George Mylonkanis, one of the research team members at the University of Bristol, the Great Britain, and one of the two non-Italian scientists in the research team of 16 specialists.

This is the newest study on the Tower of Pisa. Over the past 30 years, the (near) millenary construction has returned to the attention of specialists after the structure of the earthquake began to bend dramatically in 1990 and the interventions of the engineers made the tower return to its known angle of 0, 54 degrees.

MH370 flight was deliberately crashed




MH370 flight was deliberately crashed

Aviation expert Larry Vance revealed in the 60 Minutes show that the flap discovered a year ago on Madagascar Island and belonging to Malaysia Airlines indicates a bleak hypothesis.

According to him, the experts' analysis indicates that the MH370 flight would have been crashed in the water because the flap was stretched out, reported The Guardian .


Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 - Wikipedia
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370) was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on 8 March 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur ...

Vance thinks that no other theory can provide a plausible explanation of what would have happened to the missing plane in March 2014.

"Someone piloted the plane directly into the water ," he said in the 60 Minutes show, where he argued that the stretched flap is "concrete evidence" that the plane would have been intentionally collapsed, which would explain why it was not yet found wreck.

'A flaperon can not activate himself, someone must have taken him out. Someone (in the cabin) must have selected the flaperon activation command, "said Vance, which reinforces the hypothesis that one of the pilots or an air pirate controlled the plane until it collapsed in the ocean.

Peter Foley, head of the search operations by the Australian Transport Security Authority (ATSB), does not exclude the possibility that someone has controlled the plane to the end. the Australian high-ranking official said the ATSB saw 'some French analyzes' suggesting that the flapper was activated, which would support the theory that the collapse of the plane was premeditated.

Search operations started from the premise that the plane's disappearance was not the result of a premeditated move. But so far, the most costly search in history has not produced any results. Several pieces that are supposed to belong to the missing Boeing were found on the islands of eastern Africa.

Recently, the investigators unannounced a key detail of the investigation. In the captain's home that piloted the Malausia Airlines, a flight simulator was discovered in which the pilot would apply a similar scenario a month before disappearance, and would be astonished in the Indian Ocean.

Meanwhile, the governments of Malaysia, Australia and China withdrew their commitment to complement the search on the 120,000 square meter range.

They said that in the absence of new credible evidence regarding the exact location of the airplane, the search would be temporarily suspended.
