DutchCatTwelve

Where will you live when you retire?

This might appeal to you more than a condo (at about the same price), especially if you are still active enough to enjoy the occasional short voyage.  The interior is designed with accessibility in mind.  

DutchCatTwelve is a new yacht design from the Netherlands which according to its makers can also double as a second home. The customizable boat comes with two or three cabins, accommodating four to six guests, one or two fully equipped bathrooms, a four meter (13 ft) wide lounge deck and a bespoke kitchen. With plans to be ready for launch by June this year, the yacht will also be available in a range of power-train options.

The Nonhuman Rights Project-New York Cases

The Nonhuman Rights Project says it is the only organization working through the common law to achieve actual LEGAL rights for members of species other than our own. 

Their mission is to change the common law status of at least some nonhuman animals from mere “things,” which lack the capacity to possess any legal right, to “persons,” who possess such fundamental rights as bodily integrity and bodily liberty, and those other legal rights to which evolving standards of morality, scientific discovery, and human experience entitle them.

Their first cases were filed in December 2013, and this year they say they will file as many suits as they have funds available. 

The recent New York Chimpanzee cases are found here with related court documents and transcripts.

Why surveillance companies hate the iPhone – The Washington Post

By Craig Timberg

The secrets of one of the world’s most prominent surveillance companies, Gamma Group, spilled onto the Internet last week, courtesy of ananonymous leaker who appears to have gained access to sensitive corporate documents. And while they provide illuminating details about the capabilities of Gamma’s many spy tools, perhaps the most surprising revelation is about something the company is unable to do: It can’t hack into your typical iPhone.

Android phones, some Blackberries and phones running older Microsoft operating systems all are vulnerable to Gamma’s spyware, called FinSpy, which can turn your smart phone into a potent surveillance device. Users of the spyware are capable of listening to calls on targeted devices, stealing contacts, activating the microphone, tracking your location and more. But for FinSpy to hack into an iPhone, its owner must have already stripped away much of its built-in security through a process called “jailbreaking.” No jailbreak, no FinSpy on your iPhone, at least according to a leakedGamma document dated April 2014.
