Peekaboo Moments baby-recording app has a bad database booboo

No need to wait until you’ve gurgled out of your mother’s womb to experience the joys of having your privacy breached, thanks to a mobile app called Peekaboo Moments.

Bithouse Inc. – the developer of the mobile app, which is designed to capture photos, audio, weight, length, video and diaries of tots starting as early as their zygote days – has left an Elasticsearch database flapping wide open, leaving thousands of infants’ videos and images exposed, unsecured and up for babbling its contents to any internet busybody who knows where to look.

ElasticSearch server exposed the personal data of over 57 million US citizens Leaky database taken offline, but not after leaking user details for nearly two weeks.

The database was discovered by Dan Ehrlich, who runs the Texas-based cybersec startup Twelve Security. Ehrlich told Information Security Media Group (ISMG) that the 100GB database contains more than 70 million log files, with data going back as far as March 2019. The logs record when someone uses the Peekaboo app, what actions they took and when.

And my oh my, what actions you can take! As the Peekaboo Moment developer croons on the app’s Google Play listing, users can…

K12 Education: Two States- Eight Textbooks- Two American Stories-

#social studies text books
#eighth and 11th graders social studies text books

Social Studies Text Books standards are subject to review by politicians.

Two States. Eight Textbooks. Two American Stories.
We analyzed some of the most popular social studies textbooks used in California and Texas. Here’s how political divides shape what students learn about the nation’s history.
By Dana Goldstein
Jan 12 2020

The textbooks cover the same sweeping story, from the brutality of slavery to the struggle for civil rights. The self-evident truths of the founding documents to the waves of immigration that reshaped the nation.

The books have the same publisher. They credit the same authors. But they are customized for students in different states, and their contents sometimes diverge in ways that reflect the nation’s deepest partisan divides.

Hundreds of differences — some subtle, others extensive — emerged in a New York Times analysis of eight commonly used American history textbooks in California and Texas, two of the nation’s largest markets.

In a country that cannot come to a consensus on fundamental questions— how restricted capitalism should be, whether immigrants are a burden or a boon, to what extent the legacy of slavery continues to shape American life — textbook publishers are caught in the middle. On these questions and others, classroom materials are not only shaded by politics, but are also helping to shape a generation of future voters.

Conservatives have fought for schools to promote patriotism, highlight the influence of Christianity and celebrate the founding fathers. In a September speech, President Trump warned against a “radical left” that wants to “erase American history, crush religious liberty, indoctrinate our students with left-wing ideology.”

The left has pushed for students to encounter history more from the ground up than from the top down, with a focus on the experiences of marginalized groups such as enslaved people, women and Native Americans.

The books The Times analyzed were published in 2016 or later and have been widely adopted for eighth and 11th graders, though publishers declined to share sales figures. Each text has editions for Texas and California, among other states, customized to satisfy policymakers with different priorities.

“At the end of the day, it’s a political process,” said Jesús F. de la Teja, an emeritus professor of history at Texas State University who has worked for the state of Texas and for publishers in reviewing standards and textbooks.

The differences between state editions can be traced back to several sources: state social studies standards; state laws; and feedback from panels of appointees that huddle, in Sacramento and Austin hotel conference rooms, to review drafts.

Requests from textbook review panels, submitted in painstaking detail to publishers, show the sometimes granular ways that ideology can influence the writing of history.

The National History Education Clearing House has made available a database of state social studies and history standards, searchable by state and grade.

A California panel asked the publisher McGraw-Hill to avoid the use of the word “massacre” when describing 19th-century Native American attacks on white people. A Texas panel asked Pearson to point out the number of clergy who signed the Declaration of Independence, and to state that the nation’s founders were inspired by the Protestant Great Awakening.

All the members of the California panel were educators selected by the State Board of Education, whose members were appointed by former Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat.

The Texas panel, appointed by the Republican-dominated State Board of Education, was made up of educators, parents, business representatives and a Christian pastor and politician.

McGraw-Hill, the publisher whose annotated Bill of Rights appears differently in the two states, said it had created the additional wording on the Second Amendment and gun control for the California textbook. A national version of the pages is similar to the Texas edition, which does not call attention to gun rights, the company said in a written statement.

Pearson, the publisher whose Texas textbook raises questions about the quality of Harlem Renaissance literature, said such language “adds more depth and nuance.”

Critical language about nonwhite cultural movements also appears in a Texas book from McGraw-Hill. It is partly a result of debates, in 2010, between conservative and liberal members of the Texas Board of Education over whether state standards should mention cultural movements like hip-hop and country music. Their compromise was to ask teachers and textbook publishers to address “both the positive and negative impacts” of artistic movements.

Texas struck that requirement in 2018, but its most recent textbooks, published in 2016, will reflect it for years to come.

Publishers are eager to please state policymakers of both parties, during a challenging time for the business. Schools are transitioning to digital materials.

And with the ease of internet research, many teachers say they prefer to curate their own primary-source materials online.

3wishes charity granting wishes to nursing home residents

“Three Wishes for Ruby’s Residents.”

We are powered by kid activists who are heroes for our elders. We exist to bring joy to the lives of the 1.5 million elders living in America’s nursing homes, most notably the 975,000 residents subsisting on a government stipend as low as $40 per month. We serve all nursing home residents but especially the lonely and the poor. With your help we can make a difference by providing nursing home residents with small items they need to make life sweeter. Learn more about our Kid Board, what we do and how to get involved.

11-year-old expands her charity granting wishes to nursing home residents

At a nursing home in northwest Arkansas, 11-year-old Ruby Chitsey likes to go to work with her mom, a nurse who travels to several nursing homes in the area. And it was on one of those visits that Ruby started going up to residents with her notepad and asking them, “If you could have any three things, what would they be?” And so started a charity called “Three Wishes for Ruby’s Residents.” Steve Hartman reports.

I asked my students to turn in their cell phones and write about living without them

I asked my students to turn in their cell phones and write about living without them

Here’s what they had to say.

The usual industry and education narrative about cell phones, social media, and digital technology generally is that they build community, foster communication, and increase efficiency, thus improving our lives. Mark Zuckerberg’s recent reformulation of Facebook’s mission statement is typical: the company aims to “give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.”

Without their phones, most of my students initially felt lost, disoriented, frustrated, and even frightened. That seemed to support the industry narrative: look how disconnected and lonely you’ll be without our technology.

But after just two weeks, the majority began to think that their cell phones were in fact limiting their relationships with other people, compromising their own lives, and somehow cutting them off from the “real” world. Here is some of what they said.

this is an anti-trust case – the fight is over getting students to enroll, cause kids don’t want to go to college anymore – they don’t want the debt – colleges are closing …. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$


In September 2019, NACAC members voted to remove the Recruiting Rules from

the CEPP. Removal of the Recruiting Rules became effective as of the time of the vote.

NACAC’s Recruiting Rules were unlawful restraints of trade that violated Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1. The United States seeks an order prohibiting such
agreements and other relief.


Defendant NACAC is located in, and represents members that do business in, the United States. The rules at issue affected primarily the provision of college services in the United States. The colleges that provide these college services charge significant prices to students, many of whom legally reside outside the state. The sale of college services, and the NACAC rules that affect the sale, are therefore in the flow of and substantially affect interstate commerce.
The Court has subject matter jurisdiction under Section 4 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 4, and under 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331 and 1337, to prevent and restrain Defendant and its members from violating Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1.

A billion a year in health care costs, $15 billion of which comes from insulin.

Biohackers With Diabetes Are Making Their Own Insulin


Open Insulin Project, a biohacker collective

that is trying to produce the lifesaving drug and provide it to people with diabetes for free, or close to it. Open Insulin founder Anthony DiFranco thinks a potential solution to the insulin pricing crisis is to enable patients and hospitals to create the drug themselves.
Diabetes is a punishingly expensive disease. In an Oakland warehouse, scientists are going DIY. Diabetes has become the most expensive disease in the United States, reaching $327 billion a year in health care costs, $15 billion of which comes from insulin. In 1923, Frederick Banting, Charles Best, and James Collip sold the patent for insulin to the University of Toronto for $1 each because they believed such an essential medicine should be available to everyone who needed it. The original patents for the insulin molecule have long since expired, but patents on parts of the production process — a strategy that has been famously used (and arguably abused) by drug companies — remain because pharmaceutical companies keep tweaking how they make it.

There are currently several lawsuits accusing the three drug companies of price fixing.

One class action complaint claims Eli Lilly, Sanofi, and Novo Nordisk raised the list price of insulin in lockstep over the last 20 years, stating that the companies have been “unlawfully inflating the benchmark prices of rapid- and long-acting analog insulin drugs,” and placing them in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

Linda Ronstadt vs. Mike Pompeo

When Will I Be Loved ~ Mike Pompeo

Linda Ronstadt doesn’t need to worry about her future career. She doesn’t need to worry about her body of work. She doesn’t have to behave like a “well mannered nice female” who will just go up there and say thank you so much to the politicians of America when getting her award. Linda, is in bad health, she can’t sing anymore, she doesn’t have a lot of time left so……

At the State Dept. dinner for the Kennedy Center honorees Mike Pompeo wondered aloud when he would be “loved”. Then Linda Ronstadt got up to get laurels, looked the f^^ker right in the eye and said

“maybe when you stop enabling Donald Trump”.


“Talk of the town” 1942
This is your law and your finest possession. It makes you free people in a free country.
“Think of this country and the law that makes it what it is.
Think of the world crying for this very law. 
Then maybe you’ll understand why you ought to guard it and why the law has got to be the personal concern for every citizen, to uphold it for your neighbor as well as yourself.”

The secret life of our HIPAA data
“There’s a misconception that all health information is protected by HIPAA; it’s just not true,” she says. A growing number of apps and websites skirt oversight, such as wearable devices that track your heart rate, or an app or portal where individuals can store their own health information. If a company isn’t covered by HIPAA, it “can do more with your health information than you might think, without your consent,” she said.
Can your medical records become marketing? We investigate a reader’s suspicious ‘patient portal. Our tech columnist helps identify a HIPAA loophole, explains Apple Pay and shares a Firefox upgrade that helps you track the data trackers on your computer. The patient portal reserves rights to use “personal health record” data for “marketing and advertising purposes, including sending you marketing and advertising communications whether on our behalf or on behalf of marketing partners.” Say what? Nobody wants to see their medical diagnosis turn into an ad. What’s the law here? A patient portal that has a business associate agreement with your doctor’s office to collect your personal health information should be covered by HIPAA, said Deven McGraw, the former deputy director of health information privacy at the Office for Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. And under HIPAA, showing paid, targeted advertisements should require consent from each patient. When I contacted Follow My Health’s corporate parent Allscripts, it painted a narrower picture of its practices — and claimed the site wasn’t limited by HIPAA. Follow My Health claims it is not limited by HIPAA. “Unlike a patient portal that a vendor hosts or supports for a single health-care provider, a vendor of a personal health record product that allows individual consumers to aggregate their health information from multiple sources is not regulated by HIPAA,” Lynch said. The HIPAA-covered business associate relationship, he said, is “limited to the technical work that is necessary to establish and maintain connectivity” between a doctor’s electronic records system and Follow My Health.
