    The police have released the name of the attacker. British born 52 year old Khalid Masood. Born in Kent but living in Birmingham area. He was a career criminal convicted of assault including GBH and other crimes but never convicted of terror offenses. The ISS claim responsibility but not likely. More violent criminal than jihadist.

    For some years there are thousands of highly armed police on the British streets and especially near to and around important sites like the parliament. Just look at the media photos of the event. On the spot were a team of SAS who immediately removed the PM from the parliament in a well rehearsed way.

    I agree that it was strange that the first policeman met into the parliament was an unarmed policemen, especially since he was an ex-soldier. They need to rethink that position.

    In America more people have been killed by firearm crime than terrorism or put another way the victims of terrorism are less than 10% of the numbers from gun crimes.

    The fact that it remains difficult in the UK to obtain firearms meant yesterday the attacker used a knife. What if it had been an automatic machine gun. The attacker is British born and was known to the security forces but not considered a risk. That too needs further consideration.

    I guess we are just supposed to not care who actually did this,

    So you care about the details personally because even given the identity of attacker it won't change the outcome but the police and security will release that info once it decides that they have everyone who might have been involved or even involved in further attacks. You don't show your poker hand until you call.

    zichi Selective reading, i said because TRUMP cant prove it doesnt mean that it didnt happen. If you read my post, I said LAW ENFORCEMENT can and will prove it based on the evidence they have or are given.

    I believe it but you are unable to accept the outcome that both the directors of the FBI and NSA have stated there's no evidence, so it would appear I'm not the one with the selective reading problem.

    So once again just because Trump cant prove it doesnt mean Obama didnt do it.

    So you mean innocent until proven guilty that's how it works, yes?

    TEPCO should be closed down and all of its assets sold off. A new public company should be formed to deal with the nuclear disaster plant and employ the current workers to resolve the disaster.

    The disaster will cost more than ¥50 trillion and 100 years to resolve if its possible. The only people paying for this will be the taxpayers and maybe the power consumers.

    The power generating side of the business can be bought out by another or new power company. The very lucrative Tokyo supply business can also be taken over by another company. New supply rules begin next month.

    The police said they know who the attacker was but have not revealed his identity.

    The constant monitoring and intelligence gathering, the constant high levels of training of the police and security forces and the tight control of guns can't prevent these types of terror attacks. Over the previous period they did prevent about 13 attacks but won't release details. The British security forces are one of the best.

    These kind of simple terror attacks have happened recently in other European cities too.

    Sad day for those who have lost loved ones.

    The United States on Wednesday urged coalition partners to step up efforts to defeat Islamic State militants.

    Are they the same coalition partners Trump has been insulting?

    According to the United Kingdom Census 2011 the UK Muslim population was 2,706,066 which is 4.5% of the total population. The majority of the Muslims, 2,660,116 live in England and are 5.02% of that population. According to the British media the Muslim population in 2016 was more than 3 million with more than 50% born outside of the UK.

    During the 1970's there were 20 IRA terrorist attacks. In the 1980's 12 attacks, 7 by the IRA. First Islam attacks, three during the period.

    In the 1990's there was an increase with 29 terror attacks. 23 of those from the IRA. I lived in London 1970-1993 and living with the IRA bombs was fearful.

    In the 2000's 11 terror attacks. 7 of those again by the IRA. The worse was the 2005 central London bombing by four Islamist extremist suicide bombers.

    Since 2010 there have been 5 attacks including yesterdays.

    The British Home Office figures in 2016 show there are 125 Islamic prison inmates convicted of terror related offenses with another 27 on remand or awaiting trial. This is 50 more than five years ago.

    Blaming the whole Muslim population for these terrorists would be wrong and so would blaming the whole of the UK Irish population for those IRA attacks. Living in London in the 1970-1990's and being Irish was also very difficult and innocent people were given long prison sentences for bombing they didn't do.

    Since 1970, there have been 77 terror attacks, 57 of those by the IRA. Only 8 by Muslim extremists with the worse, 1988 Lockerbie PAN AM bombing, and the central London bombing in 2005.

    In 2015 in the UK there was a 326% increase in the number of hate attacks against Muslims.

    In March 2012 I bought the iPad 2. Still using that one after 5 years of daily use. How I use it connected to by Windows 10 PC. Windows 10 on my iPad. Works great. In January 2013 I bought a refurnished iPad 3. Used that one every day for the last 4 years. Both have given me great value. Both can no longer be updated with the latest iOS so time to think about a replacement.

    I will use my current iPad 3 for my Windows 10 PC which is connected via wifi. I was holding off buying a replacement and I'll probably wait until later in the year unless my current one dies.

    The newly released iPad is good and good price but I will try to locate a refurnished iPad Pro 9.7" because I want to use it at least for three years.

    My iPad 3 is 64GB and I have more than 150GB of free cloud storage. I'm also able to connect to my own cloud which is currently more than 5TB. 90% of my computer work is usually on my iPad and some heavy lifting is done on my macs or Windows.

    so Japan committed the bigger war crimes then? Japan signed the 1929 Geneva Convention but failed to ratify it. However, in 1942, Japan indicated it would follow the Geneva rules and would observe the Hague Convention of 1907 outlining the laws and customs of war.

    Imperial Japan disregarded all the rules of war only following its own evil path.

    Donald in his effort to avoid another duck told the audience at a Monday night rally in Louisville Kentucky, "Many of our best and brightest are leaving the medical profession entirely because of Obamacare."

    The fact checking says otherwise. The number of doctors caring for patients increased from 799,501 in 2010 when the ACA became law to 860,939 in 2015.

    The largest of the professional organisations representing the doctors are opposed to Trump's efforts to repeal and replace the ACA.

    So its Donald who more quack than the doctors.

    So yes, the billionaires cabinet budget, increase defense spending, always good one for those companies and cuts to the arts, museums, heating grants for the poor and meals for old folks. Thrown out the health care with 26 million unable to afford health insurance by 2026.

    Off the back of the tax payer, true that.

    You mean like the weekend cost of each trip the POTUS takes to his Florida Winter White House. $3 million a pop x 7 adds up to $21 just for two months in office and all from a guy who on the campaign trail dismissed taking many vacations.

    Has there EVER been a 'working class' Cabinet member?

    Presidents who started from a "working class family". Bill Clinton. Ronald Reagan. Richard Nixon. Dwight D Eisenhower. 14 presidents had "elite" backgrounds. 11 had "lower-class" or "working-class" backgrounds.

    The current cabinet is filled with the rich and hypocrites, probably they will form the Hypocrat Party.

    But then again, if you are a rich liberal, it's ok, even though rich liberals are the tightest people on the planet.

    Other than a wild statement how about accurate facts? The current cabinet is the richest in history, billionaire capitalists who are not going to do much to improve the lot of the working class. The same people who often fail to pay their tax worth in full and go to great lengths to avoid taxes. The taxes of POTUS, why not release them to the public.

    There's going to be broken dreams and hopes in the American rustbelt when the same billionaires fail to deliver on their promises.

    Not at all, the Democrats have become the party for the rich and elite, go to California, Boston and New York, all the people that exceptionally affluent are almost all liberal.

    How many of Trump's cabinet are billionaires? How many are working class? 17 of those cabinet members net net worths higher than one third of Americans who have zero net worth. Drained the swamp to fill with the rich. Figures are difficult but cabinet worth $6-$16 billion.

    Some interesting new ones. Read about one recently which is a library with hundreds of books for those that enjoy them with the sleeping spaces designed into the book shelves. Lots of interesting possibilities.

    You can decide which apps can use location and turn off those which don't need it. You can weekly restart your phone. You can delete the history from the browser.

    You can use another search other than Google, like duckduckgo which does not track. You can use a vpn like Browsec which works well and good speeds. For years I have turned off my Google history tracking. Need to go to settings.

    When it comes to Apple products big surge with malware ads for "Mackeeper" which everyone should ignore and not install.

    I wouldn't call any of it "private data" just internet data collected. Same is also true of all computers and devices.

    If you want the ads, and some do, you can say which ones you like.
