Spiegel: Überwachung der Deutschen: So will die Regierung Facebook ausforschen - SPIEGEL ONLINE (Ole Reißmann)

Deutschland nimmt sich die NSA zum Vorbild: Die Bundesregierung will die Internet?berwachung durch Bundeswehr und Geheimdienst ausbauen. Dazu gehört auch die systematische Ausforschung von Facebook.
Was Nutzer von sozialen Medien wie Facebook öffentlich ins Netz stellen, ist nach Ansicht der Regierung frei zur Überwachung. "Es liegt kein Eingriff in das allgemeine Persönlichkeitsrecht vor, wenn eine staatliche Stelle im Internet verfügbare Kommunikationsinhalte erhebt, die sich an jedermann oder zumindest an einen nicht weiter eingrenzbaren Personenkreis richten", heißt es in der Antwort des Innenministeriums.

Also, weiterhin viel Spaß bei Facebook :-)
(Ich glaube so langsam, die von mir erhoffte Schmerzgrenze bei den "ich hab nix zu verbergen"-Typen gibt es gar nicht...)

Blues legend Johnny Winter dies at 70 in Zurich

GENEVA (AP) Texas blues icon Johnny Winter, who rose to fame in the late 1960s and '70s for his energetic performances and musical collaborations including with childhood hero Muddy Waters, has died. The statement said his wife, family and bandmates were all saddened by the loss of one of the world's finest guitarists. Winter, who was instantly recognizable for his long white hair, worked with some of the greatest bluesmen, producing several albums for Waters and recording with John Lee Hooker.

Good bye Johnny ... :-(
Theguardian: Mogwai – Come On Die Young bonus material: Exclusive stream (Guardian music)

It's 15 years since Mogwai released their seminal second album, Come On Die Young. The anniversary has given Chemikal Underground a neat excuse not just to reissue it, but do so as a 4LP boxset featuring over an hour's worth of bonus material.

That material includes previously unreleased takes of songs such as Waltz For Aidan and Christmas Steps, a couple of unreleased tracks – Satchel Panzer and Spoon Test - and a handful of rarities, Nick Drake and Hugh Dallas among them.

Npr: John Grant: Tiny Desk Concert (Bob Boilen)

July 13, 2014by BOB BOILEN • John Grant's songs don't mess around: The music isn't complicated, while the lyrics function as darts of retort and thought. His album Pale Green Ghosts is decorated with synthesizers, his voice often drenched in reverb; those tools and textures help make the record strong and everlasting.

So when Grant came to the Tiny Desk with just an acoustic guitarist — and wanted to play piano himself — I feared that the power of the songs I'd come to love wouldn't translate amid such bare sounds. I was wrong, and his music was just right. The lyrics rush forward and hit hard. Try this line from the first

Looking at this further, having seen it working ok on a test Friendica installation.
/var/www/virtual/html is the wrong directory, the directory to look at is the Temp Path in the admin settings. This has to be writable by the poller.
For an existing Friendica server you could be using something different from /tmp which is the default now.
Also make sure you're not using a directory in ram which doesn't exist after a reboot.
Thanks @Keith Fernie
Looks like my system couldn't detect the correct path to the installation. I entered the path in admin setting, for now the poller is quiet again.
Because this issue was on all my three servers and all are on a shared host (@Uberspace User Group ), other users running their installations at Uberspace, should look at the admin settings too.

The second part will be called jenny death and the whole thing will be released on Harvest/Third Worlds Records.

Schnauze voll von dem professionellen Lack, mit dem der gute alte Psychobilly gern mal wieder zum Style aufpoliert wird? Die chinesischen Glückskekse aus Köln rubbeln den Quatsch mit punkigem Rotz nachhaltig wieder runter! Diese ausgesprochen kultige Band suhlt sich in grandios-knusprigem Proberaum-Sound, schrulligen (deutschen!) Texten über die ganzen nervenden Normalos und vermixt quasi nebenbei herrlich schiefe Country-Anleihen mit schmalzigem Rock‘n‘Roll, um erhaben über sämtliche Szeneweidezäune hinweg zu dilettieren. Und das mit Schmackes seit 1986 – Respekt!

Seit 2002 gibt es in der Landeshauptstadt regelmäßig im Mai bzw. Juni einen Japan-Tag. Er hat sich zu einem der beliebtesten Düsseldorfer Ereignisse entwickelt. Im Rahmen eines deutsch-japanischen Begegnungsfestes bringen die in Düsseldorf lebenden Japaner den Besuchern die Kultur ihrer Heimat nahe. Kimono-Anproben, Kalligraphie, Samurai- und Musikgruppen gehören dabei zu den regelmäßigen Höhepunkten. Krönender Abschluss ist traditionell das große japanische Feuerwerk, für das eigens ein Pyrotechniker mit speziellen Feuerwerkskörpern aus Japan anreist.
Man ist sich näher gekommen in den Jahrzehnten der wachsenden Zusammenarbeit. Der Begriff von "Japans Hauptstadt am Rhein" hat sich längst mit Leben gefüllt.

Stadt war so überfüllt, vorher kehrt gemacht :-)

Nybooks: 'We Kill People Based on Metadata' by David Cole

A bill to rein in NSA spying on Americans’ metadata is an important first step, but it addresses only one part of the NSA’s surveillance activities.

Supporters of the National Security Agency inevitably defend its sweeping collection of phone and Internet records on the ground that it is only collecting so-called “metadata”—who you call, when you call, how long you talk. Since this does not include the actual content of the communications, the threat to privacy is said to be negligible. That argument is profoundly misleading.

Of course knowing the content of a call can be crucial to establishing a particular threat. But metadata alone can provide an extremely detailed picture of a person’s most intimate associations and interests, and it’s actually much easier as a technological matter to search h
