The company isn’t saying exactly how it’s able to do so

“Other companies offer a similar service only to law enforcement. DriveSavers is the first to offer a Passcode Lockout Data Recovery service to consumers. The DriveSavers service is not available for law enforcement and requires proof of ownership prior to unlocking a device.”

CRISPR Consequences ‘He’ has pushed humanity across a line that it can never uncross.

CRISPR Consequences

You can’t push the frontier of science if you leave all the ethicists behind.

 

He will probably turn up eventually, at which point he’ll likely need to submit to an investigation from China’s Ministry of Science and Technology.

The results of that investigation could shape the future of human gene editing — if China punishes He severely for his actions, it could deter other scientists from pursuing the “ask forgiveness, not permission” route with their own research. Leniency could have the opposite effect.

Regardless of how that investigation plays out, though, He has pushed humanity across a line that it can never uncross. We now live in a world in which the first people with CRISPR-modified genes have been born.

Another conflict of interest at a Trump hotel?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2018/11/29/another-conflict-interest-trump-hotel/

The Debt Collection Forum is an annual trade show put on for the debt-collection industry, the sort of event that hosts seminars on topics like “Trump and the CFPB” and promises to deliver “actionable solutions.” In previous years, it has been held in places such as Nashville. In April 2019, the Debt Collection Forum will take place in Chicago — at the Trump International Hotel and Tower.
You read that right. A group of several hundred debt collectors, members of a widely loathed industry that is regulated by the federal government, is going to meet next April at a property belonging to the president of the United States.
It is an interesting choice of venue — and one that, once again, highlights our unsatisfactory laws when it comes to the issue of Trump’s personal business interests and how they potentially conflict with the office of the presidency.

A major spark for the American Revolution, then, was a protest against monopoly.

The Boston Tea Party was about the Tea Act of 1773, which granted a tea monopoly in the colonies to the well-connected East India Company. Merchants based in the Americas would be shut out of the market. The Tea Act of 1773 granted a tea monopoly in the colonies to the well-connected East India Company.

Many colonists  stormed three ships in Boston Harbor on the night of Dec. 16, 1773, and tossed chests of East India tea which was really coming from China.

Global Britain was built as a narco-empire Stephen R. Platt describes how the sale of vast quantities of opium to the Chinese became a vital source of revenue for Britain in the 19th century

The opium trade is remembered as a British outrage: English merchants, protected by English bayonets, turning China into a nation of addicts. But Americans got rich from this traffic—among them, a young man named Warren Delano. He didn’t talk about it afterward, of course. And neither did his grandson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
