– USA: i soldati americani stanno rivelando informazioni sensibili e pericolose facendo jogging. Una mappa interattiva pubblicata su Internet che mostra dove si trovano le persone che usano dispositivi fitness come Fitbit rivela anche informazioni altamente sensibili sulle posizioni e le attività dei soldati nelle basi militari statunitensi.

La mappa pubblicata alla Global Heat Map, utilizzando le informazioni satellitari degli abbonati al servizio di fitness dell’azienda, non è live, ma mostra uno schema di attività accumulata tra il 2015 e il settembre 2017.

Nelle zone di guerra e nei paesi desertici come l’Iraq e la Siria, la mappa mette in luce le basi militari statunitensi e gli altri siti sconosciuti e potenzialmente sensibili – presumibilmente perché i soldati americani usano i fitness tracker mentre si muovono.

Il colonnello dell’aeronautica John Thomas, portavoce del Comando centrale degli Stati Uniti, ha dichiarato domenica che l’esercito americano sta esaminando il problema.

I militari non hanno risposto a una domanda su quali sono le norme in merito all’uso delle app di monitoraggio della forma fisica. Ma il Pentagono ha incoraggiato l’uso di Fitbit tra il personale militare e nel 2013 ne ha distribuiti 2.500 come parte di un programma pilota per combattere l’obesità.

Come nota il Washington Post il problema è anche che i percorsi rivelano le abitudini dei soldati e anche le rotte di pattugliamento, quelle di rifornimento tra basi e le soste abituali. Studiando queste mappe è più facile per i nemici attaccare i soldati statunitensi.

Ad esempio, in un sito nel nord della Siria vicino a una diga, dove gli analisti hanno sospettato che l’esercito americano stia costruendo una base, la mappa mostra una piccola quantità di attività accompagnata da una linea intensa lungo la diga vicina, suggerendo che il personale del sito si muova regolarmente lungo la diga.

Elvis Costello – I’ll never fall in love again

What do you get when you fall in love?
A guy with a pin to burst your bubble
That’s what you get for all your trouble
I’ll never fall in love again

What do you get when you kiss a girl
You get enough germs to catch pneumonia
After you do, she’ll never phone you
I’ll never fall in love again

Don’t tell me what it’s all about
‘Cause I’ve been there and I’m glad I’m out
Out of those chains those chains that bind you
That is why I’m here to remind you

What do you get when you give your heart
You get it all broken up and battered
That’s what you get, a heart that’s shattered
I’ll never fall in love again

Out of those chains those chains that bind you
That is why I’m here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?
You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So for at least until tomorrow
I’ll never fall in love again


M’s Music – Scorpions

A very young Rudolf Schenker founded Scorpions in the provincial, post-war Hannover in 1965. Fifty years on, the German rockers released Return To Forever to coincide with the band’s golden anniversary.
This song finds the band reflecting on their long career.

Vocalist Klaus Meine said: “In the end, it tells our story. We’ve built this house called Scorpions brick by brick and often quite arduously. From the first days in Hannover, the first concerts abroad, until this very day”, he continued. “However, building the house was never just cumbersome, but joyful as well. The joy of music, the joy of having experienced and still experiencing it all, the joy of – and the thankfulness for – the fans’ affection. We have been working hard for this dream, but we’re thankful as well for having been able to live it, and for still being able to live it today.”
