Empire Kred

We’re nearing the end of Day 2 of World Exploration Weekend. Do you have both of these achievements for today?

If not, you still have time! Log into Empire.Kred and check out SQRL’s mission(s). You’ll get Kon-Tiki for logging in, and Endeavour for correctly answering any of the questions posed in the 5 active SQRL missions for today!

It’s important to collect these achievements, as after the weekend’s festivities are complete, we will award a special World Explorer achievement, with a boatload of eaves, to every Empire.Kred explorer who receives all of the in-event achievements!

Tomorrow, Day 3, we will have another set of SQRL missions to lead you to another Explorer achievement. On Day 4 we will have two Explorer achievements, one of which will be awarded the same way as on the first 3 days, and the other one which will be, we think, extra EXTRA difficult. It will…

Day 2 of World Exploration Nearly Done!


The Misogynysts Guide To Hate On @Twitter. #feminism #cybersecurity

People are people. No matter how and where they were born


Depersonalization is the core of hate.

There can be little doubt that depersonalizing others is key to rationalizing the abuse of individuals.

And yet an easy way to attack women on twitter is to simply deny their very personhood.

This has been happening to Lili, aka @laughrodite4u for over a year and Twitter never stops it.  Never considers it’s impact.

And so one can simply lie to harass women, and Twitter won’t stop it despite rules against targeted harassment of women and spam.

NSA Surveillance Data Now On FBI Slippery Slope



The slope of government surveillance got a little slippery this week.

The FBI is allowed to directly access the NSA’s massive collection—which can include international email, texts and phone calls—for criminal investigations

The Guardian revealed that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court had quietly approved changes to rules governing the use of bulk data collected from US tech companies through its so-called PRISM program.

The move essentially eliminates any barrier that previously existed between foreign counterterrorism investigations and domestic criminal investigations. The American Civil Liberties Union summed it up this way:

FBI agents don’t need to have any “national security” related reason to plug your name, email address, phone number, or other “selector” into the NSA’s gargantuan data trove. They can simply poke around in your private information in the course of totally routine investigations. And if they find something that suggests, say, involvement in illegal drug activity, they…

Resolving The Inner Identity Crisis

Great insights Elza

Confluence Media

At the present moment in human history, almost every individual has lost the awareness of its real or true self. This has happened very gradually as each individual has progressed in its journey of birth-rebirth and has kept on attaching itself to various different things and as a result losing its sense of self in things that it is not i.e. identifying with things that it is not. In a way it can be said that this took the self far away from itself. This personal, internal identity crisis has led to a universal, external identity crisis, which has resulted in an emotional crisis resulting in peacelessness and sorrow in our inner world as well as in the outer world. 

This inner identity crisis is the root cause of the multitude of deformed emotions that exist inside us like anger, ego, lust, fear, comparison with others, greed, hatred, low self…
