British hacker Lauri Love wins appeal against his extradition to the US

The alleged British hacker Lauri Love, whose extradition is required by the United States for stealing official information from US agencies such as the FBI and NASA, won Monday an appeal to the High Court against his surrender to that country.

At a hearing in that court in London, two judges indicated that the appeal was granted and the petitioner “is free” from the extradition.

The United States is demanding Love, 32, of Asperger’s Syndrome for alleged cyber attacks in 2012 and 2013 – which could lead to sentences of up to 99 years in prison – in which the hacker would have subtracted confidential data from agencies such as the Federal Reserve, the US Army, the Department of Defense, NASA and the FBI.

During a previous hearing in November 2017, Love’s defense argued that an extradition would not result in “best interests for justice” for a number of reasons.

Among these reasons were the “high risk” of the British, who in addition to the Asperger suffers from a depressive illness and severe eczema, get to commit suicide.

Love, who lives with her parents near the town of Newmarket in the English county of Suffolk, was in the hearing today to hear the judges’ decision.

In the ruling, the magistrates specified that they saw no reason why the hacker can not now be tried or prosecuted in the United Kingdom for the crimes for which he is accused.

“What is particularly important in the case is that the British judicial system has taken the position that we must deal with our problems ourselves, rather than accepting US requirements,” said a spokesman for Love’s defense Kaim Todner .

Emma Norton, legal head of the Liberty Human Rights organization, told local media that in cases where there were illegal activities in the UK, suspects should be tried in the country, and “not sent to foreign courts before non-family judicial systems “.

“This is especially important in cases involving vulnerable people like Lauri Love,” added Emma, ​​who was pleased that the court recognized the vulnerability of the hacker as well as the “potentially catastrophic consequences” that her extradition would have caused.

Love’s father, the Rev. Alexander Love, has warned that his son “feared for his life” by not feeling able to face the trauma of being sent to the United States.

New Google Earth maps indigenous areas and Amazon deforestation

Google launched on Tuesday a platform based on its satellite imagery and mapping system, Google Earth, which allows you to know more about the Amazonian lands and indigenous communities and also to map, in real time, the deforestation of the largest jungle tropical world. In an event held in one of its offices in São Paulo, Google also presented 11 interactive stories with data on the traditions and culture of the Amazon region in Brazil, where 27 million people live, and which serve to present the tool to the peoples themselves to map deforestation.

The “I am Amazônia” project captures the complexity of the jungle in which 20% of the world’s oxygen is produced and where agricultural chains such as cocoa, Brazil nuts, and açaí grow. In this giant natural stage also live indigenous, quilombola communities and rural producers who often resort to illegal practices such as deforestation to extract timber. According to Rebecca Moore, director of Google Earth, the special version of the maps brings the history of the region in a different way and will allow a “new experience” on the Amazon.

“Who uses Google Maps has a tool to find, and whoever uses Google Earth has a tool to ‘get lost’ in the best sense of the word, he’s like a teacher, to make you discover history. virtual reality is a novelty to share experiences on the planet, “he explained.

With 360-degree imaging, Internet users can access the site through computers and Android applications. In the platform, it is possible to find mini-documentaries, films, interactive maps, location, hydrography, water volume, deforestation points and areas that need demarcation by the government.

“It’s a supercurrent theme that has to do with the environment, with the knowledge that is at hand thanks to technology. It’s a wonderful project because the more conscious people are, the more we can take care of the Amazon,” he told the Agency Efe Fábio Coelho, President of Google Brasil.

For the leader of the Suruí people, Almir Suruí, this is a way for Google to show the environmental and forest problems of the Amazon. “It’s a way for indigenous people to understand technology consciously,” he said.

Suruí told Efe that in the area of 200,000 hectares where 1,500 indigenous tribes live, very young people have been trained by Google since 2007 to “map” local issues and show more of their peoples to the rest of Brazil and the world.

The project was supported by organizations such as the Socio-Environmental Institute, which assisted in mapping the historical, cultural, fluvial, fauna and flora aspects of the region.

According to the executive director of the Socio-Environmental Institute, André Villas-Boas, the tool is “powerful to increase knowledge about the environmental diversity of Brazil and the planet.” “It can also be used to monitor the territories of vulnerable and threatened protected areas,” he explained.

The videos are attached with maps of georeferencing and classified by the description of the Amazon region, food, tribes, social struggles and challenges of sustainable development.

Already the leader of the Association of Quilombola Communities, Claudinete de Souza, told Efe that the project “shows the existence of regions and communities invisible in the eyes of the public power.”

An example of this reach is Boa Vista de Trombetas, in the municipality of Oriximiná, in the state of Pará, the first Afro-descendant community to be certified in Brazil.

“We are being oppressed, we are forgotten, so the opportunity to show the world we are it is great,” said Claudinete.

According to the website “Record”, the agreement announced by Apple should be subject to approval by the UK authorities because Shazam is based in the United Kingdom.

Sources aware of the deal have told TechCrunch that Apple will pay $ 400 million for Shazam, less than the $ 1 billion that the app was worth in 2015.

Despite its popularity, Shazam struggled to find a profitable business model. In 2016, the company reported revenue of $ 54 million.

Apple explained that Shazam, used by millions of people on different platforms, has been one of the most popular iOS apps since its launch on the App Store.

Apple may include Shazam on Siri, the iOS artificial intelligence system, making it easier to find songs for iPhones and iPads users.

Apple Music, the company’s streaming platform founded by Steve Jobs, had 27 million subscribers this year, up from 60 million in Spotify, according to Fortune magazine.
