China now encourages childbirth. The Chinese government had a one-child policy

Two Chinese academics have proposed a controversial idea to encourage childbirth as their country faces an ageing population: Make people childless people or parents of just one child pay into a “maternity fund”. The two academics made their suggestion in Tuesday’s edition of the state-run Xinhua Daily, calling for those below the age of 40 and with fewer than two children should contribute annually to a fund that would offset childbirth costs for others. The suggestion sparked a furious social media debate in a country whose people faced drastic family planning policies under the Communist Party, which enforced a one-child policy for decades.

Google, Staff worry they have been unknowingly working on project ‘Dragonfly

Staff worry they have been unknowingly working on project ‘Dragonfly’ to develop technology helping Chinese government withhold information from citizens. Hundreds of Google employees have written to the company to protest against plans to build a censored version of its search engine for China and demand more transparency to understand the ethical consequences of their work. China has the world’s largest internet audience but has frustrated US tech giants with content restrictions or outright blockages of services including Facebook and Instagram. Google’s interest in bringing search back to China came to the forefront earlier this month, when reports surfaced that the company was working on a search app that restricts content banned by Beijing.

Kabul, Afghanistan. Taliban attack at the education center Mawoud Academy on Wednesday

Officials said more than 30 people were killed and dozens were wounded in Wednesday’s attack.The teenage students were lowered into a mass grave one after another, shoulder to shoulder — just as they had sat at their lecture hall the day before. A suicide bomber, perhaps no older than they, had walked in as their algebra class ended and physics was about to begin, detonating his explosive vest and turning the university prep center into a scene of carnage. The attack was claimed by the Islamic State, its latest in a brutal string of bloody bombings against civilian targets, everything from mosques to schools, and even a midwife training center. The Islamic State’s hold on Afghan territory was never large, and has been slipping, but  its cruel brand of bloodshed has compounded Afghans’ suffering during years of war against the Taliban. The Kabul school’s casualties were just a small fraction of the relentless bloodletting by a resurgent Taliban in the past week, when attacks took the lives of several hundred Afghans, security personnel and civilians.

Équateur, les Vénézuéliens doivent présenter leur passeport

Jusqu’à présent, les Vénézuéliens ne devaient présenter que leur carte d’identité à leur arrivée en Equateur, mais l’ampleur de la vague de migration pousse le pays à changer les règles.

Le Monde (Video)   Tutoriel  comment empêcher Google d’enregistrer vos déplacements?

Contrairement à ce qu’on pourrait croire, désactiver l’historique de géolocalisation sur les applications Google (comme Google Maps) ne permet pas de se déplacer sans laisser de traces. C’est ce qu’affirme une enquête d’Associated Press parue le 13 août, qui montre que la firme américaine continue de conserver des coordonnées géographiques de l’utilisateur. Un problème qui peut concerner les deux milliards de propriétaires d’appareils fonctionnant sous Android, et les centaines de millions de personnes qui utilisent des applications Google sur iPhone. Pour y remédier, il faut désactiver une très discrète option nommée « Activité sur le Web et les applications ». Voici comment procéder.
