S.F. Firefighters, Police Face Off in Charity Football Game and WhatsApp: The Bad Guys' Secret Weapon

There's a big rivalry football game at San Francisco's Kezar Stadium Friday and, while there's no competition over the benefits, there's a lot of pride on the line. Susie Steimle reports. (5-25-18) [Video Below]

WhatsApp: The Bad Guys' Secret Weapon
By: Olga Koksharova
WhatsApp makes use of the Open Whisper Signal communication protocol to secure communications with end-to-end encryption. WhatsApp users rely on that security to freely exchange messages, discuss sensitive things and, with limited success, avoid religious and political oppression in certain countries.

The streets of our country are no longer safe.
Criminals hide in plain sight, searching for the next easy mark.
And it’s not getting better.
Last year violent crime in the United States rose 4.1 percent.
Increasing your risk every time you step out your front door.
• American patriots must have a way to defend themselves.
• Americans patriots deserve to feel safe in their daily life.
• Americans patriots need to be able to fight back.

Which is why I’ve spent months re-designing the Strikepen Black™
Building on all of the customer feedback and tests from the first version.
We’ve upgraded our signature Strikepen to make it lighter, more powerful, and deadly.
And as a thank you to all of our local customers, I’m releasing the first shipment of this product FREE to a select group of American patriots.
That’s right.
You get the premier tactical pen on the market, completely free.
I’ve got a long list of self-defense experts, retailers, and shoppers who have been waiting for this release. But we’re sending the first batch FREE to our friends.
American patriots have the right to be able to protect themselves and their family.
But there’s only a limited number.

WhatsApp: The Bad Guy's Messenger of Choice

WhatsApp is extremely popular, easily being the number one instant messenger in the Western hemisphere. This, combined with its end-to-end encryption, make WhatsApp a popular tool among the criminals. Terrorists, scammers, extortionists and child molesters don't hesitate using WhatsApp to lure their victims, plan and coordinate illegal activities.

London, UK: Westminster Bridge attacker Khalid Masood allegedly sent a WhatsApp message that cannot be accessed by the police because it was encrypted. "We need to make sure that organizations like WhatsApp - and there are plenty of others like that - don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other," said British Home Secretary Amber Rudd, trying to urge WhatsApp to provide a backdoor for British intelligence and law enforcement.

Australia government plans to ban end-to-end encryption, going as far as to claim the laws of mathematics no longer apply in Australia. "The only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia", says Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in a move to demand backdoor access to WhatsApp (and other messaging services) encrypted communications.

UAE already blocks WhatsApp voice and video calls as part of their policy on VoIP calls along with Azerbaijan, Belize, China, Iran, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Paraguay, and Saudi Arabia. Do these countries have a higher crime rate or a higher threat terrorism, or do they block WhatsApp for political reasons?

One thing the governments need to clearly understand: WhatsApp is not a weapon of mass destruction. It's just a reasonably convenient, reasonably secure tool that, for one reason or another, gained a large user base and became extremely popular with consumers. If a government bans encryption in 'big' messengers, they'll have to ban a range of open-source projects that are well beyond their reach and their jurisdiction. The bad guys will simply move to a different platform, of which there is no lack of. It's the regular Joe and Jane who will be left without protection.

WhatsApp Encryption Controversy

The UK and Australia call for banning encryption and forcing manufacturers to include obligatory backdoors into their security systems, arguing that the laws of mathematics don't apply down under. At the same time, the EU proposes quite a different legislation, banning encryption backdoors and making end-to-end security mandatory across most of Europe. Austria proposes a law making it legal for the cops to intercept encrypted messages.

If all those contradicting laws are passed, manufacturers will have a difficult choice to make. They'll have to either provide backdoors and break EU laws; provide no backdoors and break British and Australian laws; or just cease to exist.

USA, Germany Can Hack into WhatsApp Users' Phones

The CIA has developed an exploit that targets individual devices and allows experts to control and access everything on a smartphone, including messages. The thing is, the CIA exploit is all about getting malware onto phones. It's not about breaking, exploiting or compromising WhatsApp encrypted Signal communication protocol.

Following a similar path, Germany passes a law making it legal for the police to hack suspects' devices. The state-managed malware would intercept WhatsApp messages prior to encryption.

Technical Feasibility of WhatsApp-Spying Malware

Is the use of malware by law enforcement feasible? For some devices, absolutely, this could be technically possible. However, installing malware onto any iOS device could be troublesome from the technical standpoint. Even if installed, malware running on an iPhone would have very limited access to device user's activities.

We at ElcomSoft don't believe in malware for the purpose of WhatsApp extraction. We don't believe in hacking the Signal protocol either. And most definitely we don't believe in network-level blocking of WhatsApp or any other secure messenger.

On the other hand, we fully support the effort the law enforcement puts investigating crime. We have tools for breaking encryption for a lot of different formats. We have a tool for breaking into WhatsApp as well.

Did we say iPhones are secure, and WhatsApp even more so? Something new is coming from ElcomSoft to extract and decrypt iPhone users' WhatsApp communications. It's just around the corner. Stay tuned.

Due to its point-to-point encryption, WhatsApp became a popular tool among the criminals.

End Times And The Return Of Christ Vs. Rebuilding The Temple And The 
By: Roger Himes

Paul says more than once that we think naturally, not spiritually: we think worldly not heavenly. John talks about being in love with this world " which blocks us knowing the love of God (I John 2:15). Jesus said that his Kingdom was not of this world, but we keep trying to change his mind and get him to make this world top priority so we can kick heathen butt and rule with him in the Millenium. This is exactly what the ancient Jews were looking for (Acts 1:6). We haven't changed in 2,000 years.

USA: This Is God's Country " God and Country
We also keep trying to see the U.S. in end time prophecy. I've seen some people stretch this so far as to see 'USA' in the middle of the word Jerusalem: JerUSAlem. We believe that God originally called this nation into being, just as he did ancient Israel, so we think we're a spiritual first-cousin to Israel.

Rebuild the Temple and the Antichrist vs. Spirituality
Of course, all eyes are on Jerusalem and what's happening between Israel and Iran, and other nations. All of this takes our thoughts off truly relating to God, and living his spiritual kingdom on earth.

Israel Is In the Spotlight
Today, all eyes are instead on Israel. We are not preoccupied with God, but with Israel. There was no Israel until 1948. There was no land to consider looking at. But for the past 64 years, all we can think and talk about is Israel and the End Times " possibly 2012 being the end of the world.

Every generation since the days of Jesus has thought that their generation was the one that would see the end times " the end of the world " the return of Christ. Every generation has been wrong.

Like everyone else, I hope this is true. I'd love to see the return of Jesus. But the faith Jesus wants to see in me is the faith of him and me as one being, and me living in faith generated by the Holy Spirit (John 14:9-11, 15-21, 17:21-23). The faith he wants in me is me showing forth his presence, and of me living life now, and in expectancy of heaven. As The Gospel Coach, I know this is the faith the gospel calls us to " not faith in a country in the Middle East called Israel (II Tim 1:10).

The Gospel and the New Testament
It's really hard to stay focused spiritually when we've got so much worldly and end time stuff going on. Most Christians think the Bible is in three parts: (1) the Old Testament, (2) the New Testament, (3) the future end times. Parts one and two are past, and now it's all about Revelation and the end times. I see this as thinking that can be very spiritually defeating.

The Return of Christ
As The Gospel Coach, my job is to keep us focused on spiritual reality now, and not so much speculation about the future. Of course the future is important. Jesus is coming back the same way he left (Acts 1:11). But let's not lose touch with reality, climb up and camp out on our roofs, and watch for it to happen. Jesus said no man knows the day or the hour. Yet we try to figure it out. Every generation does. I'll say it again: my favorite was '88 reasons Jesus is coming back in 1988.'

Why Do We Always Seek Something Physical?
We walk by sight, not by faith " the opposite of what God says to do. Doubting Thomas said, "Show me and I'll believe " let me touch your wounds and then I'll believe." We are like a bunch of unbelievers in the way we relate to God. Many Christians think we will be judged for our sin in heaven. But Jesus came to do away with sin, and to become sin for us (Heb 9:26, II Cor 5:21). We won't be judged for our sin, but for our unbelief in the gospel of the finished work of Jesus (John 12:47-48, Rom 2:16).

Like Jesus, Does Satan Crucify Us Between Two Thieves?
There are two main ways that Satan keeps us captive and in his snare today, and most of us don't see it. FIRST, he keeps us living by the Old Testament law, that Paul says in Galatians we are cursed for doing, because Jesus came to redeem us from it. SECOND, he keeps us living with our eyes totally focused on the future (and on what's happening in Israel). Both of these keep us from living in God's Kingdom, and gospel abundant life that Jesus came to bring us (John 10:10).

Must Israel and America Be Free To Be Used of God?
Israel is a free nation today, but does it have to be to accomplish God's purposes? Wasn't she in slavery to Rome when she brought the Messiah? Has God given Israel all the land he promised to give her? Does the Bible predict Israel becoming a free nation again in 1948, or was that simply the work of America and the United Nations? We often read the scripture with blinders on. My coming E-book, End Times, will show how we miss so much in our deductive thinking and logic. We see through a glass dimly.

Does America have to remain a free nation for us to be used by God in the end times? Or is someone going to repossess this country because we are bankrupt? Don't forget our founding fathers predicted the demise of America if we didn't hold to their original plans.
Only God has the answers, and the only way he reveals them is by seeking his SPIRITUAL kingdom, and his righteousness (Matt 6:33). We miss so many things because we are so future minded that we wouldn't see Jesus if he was standing next to us on our rooftop looking up. But then, he's not there. He's down on the street.

Minding Your Business-Advantages and Disadvantages of Hosting your own website and Outsourcing

Presented on US Sports Net By Yahoo Small Business!
By: Andrew Marshall

When deciding on your business hosting first you must decide whether you would like to host the site yourself or outsource it to an established hosting company. There are advantages and disadvantages to both of these options.

Advantages of hosting your own website

Those who decide to host their website themselves are those who want complete control over their hosting. This can be a major advantage to some, especially those who would like to constantly monitor everything about their website and their web hosting. Those who would like to make regular changes to the hosting setup (and want to do it themselves) will benefit from hosting their own site. In some circumstances it can be cost effective to host your own site but only if you have the requirements to have your own server. This is because you won’t have to pay another company to do it for you. There is also the potential for an extra income stream, because if you are hosting your own website you may have the equipment and expertise to host websites on behalf of others as well.

Disadvantages of hosting your own website

Although in some circumstances it can be cheaper, the majority of the time it is more expensive to host your website yourself. You may have to hire staff just for this purpose, and the relevant expertise can be costly. You will also have to have you own server and other equipment, and if you don’t have the requirements to use this to its capacity you will still be paying for it. If you don’t have the necessary expertise it can pose obvious problems, especially if something goes wrong. It is also another area you have to worry about, and can distract you from the rest of your business.

Advantages of outsourcing your hosting

The main benefit of outsourcing your hosting is that you are leaving it in the hands of experts. You therefore should be able to forget about it, which allows you to focus on your core business. Most hosting companies offer 24/7 support, something you are unlikely to be able to manage if you are hosting your own site, unless you have a large team employed for this purpose. This support means your site is being watched around the clock which gives you peace of mind. For some sites this can be extremely important. If shared hosting is adequate then you can share servers with the hosting company’s other customers which will be cheaper than having your own server. Colocation can also take away one of the disadvantages of outsourcing: that you have no control. With Colocation you own and maintain your own server but rent rack space at a Colocation centre which will cost less than hosting it yourself as you are sharing bandwidth and other variable with other customers. With outsourcing you can purchase Managed Hosting. Managed Hosting means all your hosting is completely managed for you. This should take the worry completely away from you.

Disadvantages of outsourcing your hosting

As already mentioned, you don’t have the same control if you are outsourcing. To an extent things are dictated to you by the limitation of the hosting package you choose and the operations of the hosting company. If something goes wrong with the hosting company, for example if they go out of business or make a mistake, you could have a problem. There could also be a potential security risk if confidentiality is a major issue.

For the majority of businesses, outsourcing is the better option. Most do not have the expertise to host their own website, and can make use of the support an established hosting company can offer. In the end it all comes down to the hosting needs and hosting knowledge of each individual business.

Presented on US Sports Net By BPI Sports!

Last week, James Grage made the official decision to compete in the Arnold. Now he has 12 weeks to get in the best shape of his life. Where will he start?
James: Here we go. Day 1. I’m going to jet up to BPI, hop on and do some cardio first thing in the morning. I haven’t done any cardio… man, it’s been a long time.
After 40 minutes and about 450 calories on the elliptical, James drops off his application in the warehouse to make sure it gets shipped out. Then it’s time for breakfast.
Mike T: What’s up with you man? I heard you were in here this morning early getting it in.
James: Told ya. It’s day one. I’m not messing around. The only thing that I haven’t done yet is my body fat. So right now I’m just guessing on my nutrition. I weighed myself this morning…
Mike T: What’d you weigh?
James: I weigh 185.8 lbs.
Cardio isn’t the only training James is doing to prepare for the Arnold. He’ll also have to amp up the intensity on his weight lifting.
James: It’s time to hit the gym and today is back day. I’ve got some pretty specific goals for myself over the next 12 weeks when it comes to my training and back is one of them.
After they’ve finished filming James’ workout, Kerby and Mike T. reflect on the boss’ new goal.
Mike T: It’s definitely cool that he decided to do this after so long. He’s been in the game for so long. He competed maybe 12 years ago and to step back in the game after a while, it’s admirable, especially considering all the other stuff he’s got going on. He does it all.
Kerby: He edits, he records, he’s the boss man…
Mike T: He’s a man of many hats, I say it all the time. He’s a video guy, he’s a camera man, he’s an editor, worker, family guy, all that good stuff. I’m proud of him. I hope he goes all the way. As a matter of fact, I think he’s gonna go all the way with it. I think he’s gonna get first place at the Arnold. You heard it here first!

iHealthTube Featuring: Understand the Ketogenic Diet

Get our free email newsletter here! Both the ketogenic and paleo diets have become increasingly popular. Here, Dr. Nasha Winters discusses the similarities and differences between the two. She also clears up confusion between the keto diet and other popular diet fads.

The Reason Why "Diets" Don't Work
By: Anthony Cello
[From Spring 2018]
Summer is right around the corner. (Or in some parts of the world already here) All the gyms in your area are filling back up after the hiatus since January. Your coworkers, family members, and friends all tell you about the latest diet they are on. They have gone Vegan, Keto, or are have begun a 21-Day Fix, and will not stop bragging about how much weight they have lost. Here you are, trying your best to make smart choices, going to the gym when you find the time, and yet nothing seems to be happening. Your clothes fit the same, your energy levels are the same, and you are frustrated. You begin to think, maybe I need to get on a diet as well.

Believe me when I say this; you are not alone. After being an elite health and fitness coach for years, I have heard and seen it all. I've witnessed every last trend, fad, diet, etc. but most of all, client frustrations. I have seen people go on x or y diet for a month or two, lose a lot of weight, and then gain it all back and some a few months later. Have you seen this before too? Maybe this happened to you as well.

As I said before, you are not alone. states that 95% of all dieters will regain the weight they lose within one year. Not to mention, an estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year, and Americans spend $33 billion each year on weight loss products. Yet, nearly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, according to the Boston Medical Center. Something is not right, and is not working.

So what is the answer? For starters, "dieting" is not the answer. To get fit, lose weight, and keep it off for good, a complete lifestyle change must be implemented. This means the way we eat, the way we exercise, and the way we sleep must be harmonious with how we live. We must think of eating healthy foods as a way to have energy. We must think of exercising as a way to keep our bodies strong, functioning at optimal capacity, and improving our heart health…you know, the thing that keeps us alive! Lastly, we must think of our sleeping habits as a way for our body to shut down and undergo all the processes that we want it to, like you guessed it, lose weight! (Seriously, get to bed- it's important).

If dieting hasn't worked for you yet, or maybe it has, but you'd like a more reasonable approach long-term, start by changing your lifestyle. Implement walks after dinner or on lunch break. Hire a trainer if you have the means to do so. Start clearing the fridge and pantry of any food product that has more than 3 ingredients (you will be shocked). Lastly, start shutting down electronics and getting to bed an hour earlier each night. Small changes lead to big changes over time. Stay consistent and realize this process will take longer than that short-term diet, but will reward you in the long run.

I Spent A Day With Border Patrol Agents At The US-Mexico Border

Business Insider reporter and photographer Daniel Brown recently spent a day riding along with US Border Patrol agents. He got an inside look at the busiest sector of the US-Mexico border. 

Following is a transcript of the video: [Full Video Below] Daniel Brown: I was recently down in McAllen, Texas, down in the Rio Grande Valley, to cover the immigration crisis that's been going on. I reached out to the Border Patrol for that sector and tried to get a ride-along. Finally, they granted it. US Border Patrol Agent: The Rio Grande Valley Sector accounts for about 40% of the apprehensions in the United States. McAllen Station specifically is about 20% of the entire nation, and we catch about 300 individuals a day just in this 50-mile span of border. 

When it comes to defending yourself and your family from an attacker there is no such thing as a fair fight!
The coward attacker that blind-sides you in the parking lot doesn’t believe in a fair fight, and neither should you!
That’s why you need to arm yourself with this free, totally legal tool that can drop an attacker in an instant!
Like I said, it’s free!  But you need to get your name down now because there’s a limited supply!
This self-defense tool has been the number #1 selling “Every Day Carry” in America since Feb 2016 and it’s now your chance to get one for free!
I’ve already told my friends and family to get theirs and I urge you to claim one too.
Brown: They first took me on a boat, just drove up and down the Rio Grande. They're looking for crossers. Most people cross on rafts or boats. There are just some deflated rafts on the side of the coast there. That's from people crossing over. We get off periodically, and just take little trails, and walk around. A lot of times they would look for tracks and see some faint ones, be like, okay, we know someone passed through here a couple days ago, or a day ago, or something like that. Their main job is, obviously, to keep the border safe and to apprehend people who are crossing illegally. But also, as they told me, it's a humanitarian mission as well, you know. Whether it's Mexicans or Americans, or any other citizen of the world who's passing through, they wanna try to keep those people safe. US Border Patrol Agent: That's kinda one of the difficulties of the job is you have to switch on and off from humanitarian mission to, is this guy trying to take your life? Brown: Border Patrol agents are killed, are shot at, they find dead bodies a lot, they experience, witness a lot of trauma. One agent who operates mostly on the boats, he said that sometimes they'll find a raft or a little boat trying to get across, and they'll be packed with 10 or more people, or something like that. Sometimes they'll just throw a kid off into the water just 'cause they know that the agents will go for the kid right away to save 'em. We went up and down along the river there for a while. We ran into a lot of sugar cane. It's very dense, and they were talking about the difficulties of tracking people through that, how a lot of times people can just run into that and they'll just never find 'em, even if they have dogs. US Border Patrol Agent: You cordon off this field and try to surround it, even when we have a canine assist come in so that the dog can follow and smell the people, he gets overloaded. So, it's a big, big challenge, the sugar cane. Brown: After that, we drove around for a little bit, a lot of stray dogs walking around. And the agents even said they use the dogs sometimes to kind of decipher if someone's in the area. US Border Patrol Agent: These dogs at times will give you a heads up, because with experience you start to see that they weren't barking before, but then they began to bark, so they'll kinda give you a little heads up that somebody's in the area or something's in the area. Brown: The people that live along the borders, I spoke to some of them who have people crossing through their property, who've been there for years, and it happens almost daily, and they'll ruin their crops. I met one family who's shot people who cross into their property. Those landowners, when I went and visited them, they said to come back in a few hours, and I did, and that's when they told me, "Oh, you missed it." And then they drove me out on their little four wheeler and showed me the tracks. Those tracks were like an hour old when I took 'em. A lot of these people that are crossing over illegally or going to ports of entry, they've had tough lives, and they're trying to escape violence, they're trying to get a better life. And that's something that I think that we should realize and understand as a country. But at the same time, you know, people, like the Border Patrol agents, their lives are at risk sometimes. People on all sides of the issue are going through tough things sometimes, and I think we need to see all aspects of that.

Don't Underestimate Your Prayers

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
1 Timothy 2:1-2

That verse is clear, isn’t it? The instruction is plain. Yet even in these tumultuous days when our nation is so desperately in need of God’s guidance, most of God’s people don’t do what that verse commands.
Why not?
I believe it’s because most of us are overwhelmed by the problems we see around us. How could my prayers make a dent in the national debt? we think. How could my faith affect foreign policy?
In other words, we fail to pray because we fail to realize just how powerfully our prayers can affect this country.
It’s time we caught hold of that. It’s time we realized that if we’d just be obedient to 1 Timothy 2:1-2, there’s no council of any kind on earth, no king, no president, no congress, no anything that could overthrow God’s purpose for His people.
God has called us to intercede. He has commanded us to pray for those in authority. He has given us His Word, His power, His Name, His authority and His faith. We have all the tools necessary to pray effectively for our government and its leaders.
I urge you to intercede. It is your responsibility as a believer to get involved in the affairs of your country. God wants this great land of ours, and the only way He’s going to get it is through His ambassadors—you and me.
Pray for your nation. Every day. And never again underestimate the world-changing power of those prayers.
