Pervert Mahmoud Morad was snared by a paedophile hunter as he tried to meet an ‘11-year-old girl’ after grooming her online. The 30-year-old Egyptian met the schoolgirl called Chloe on the internet. He sent her sexual photographs before he travelled from his Stoke-on-Trent home to Burton to meet up. But when he arrived, he was confronted by a group of paedophile vigilantes and he was arrested following an ugly confrontation. Now Morad has been jailed for two-and-a-half years at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court. The court heard the defendant accessed an adult website called Nearby in November and became aware of someone posting under the name Chloe Howarth. She indicated she was aged 11 and posted a photograph to support the claim. Morad asked ‘Chloe’ to send him intimate pictures of herself and he sent sexual photographs before arranging to meet. The defendant, who has no previous offences, denied attempting to cause or incite sexual exploitation of a child; … [Read more...] about Pervert snared by paedophile hunter as he tried to meet ‘schoolgirl’

MILLIONS of Brits could be missing out on key benefits because they can only claim on the internet, a charity has warned. An estimated two fifths of local councils tell residents they can only get Housing Benefit or a council tax discount if they go online. But nearly 5million people - mostly older Brits - have no access to the web, so could be missing out on cash they're owed. Age UK has called for councils to allow all residents to use offline methods so that pensioners aren't driven into poverty by being denied benefits. The charity surveyed 100 councils around the country to find out their policies on claiming Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction - which can be worth thousands of pounds. They found that 40 per cent of them required claimants to fill in a form online, or to print off the form from the council website. Most of those said they could offer some help to residents who don't use the internet. But in many cases, that would require elderly people to travel to a council … [Read more...] about Two million Brits missing out on key benefits because they’re unable to apply for the handouts they should be getting
The access to the websites of R-Sport news agency, NTV, REN-TV, VGTRK, Rossiya 1, Rossiya Kultura, Rossiya 24 and other broadcasters have also been restricted. Earlier, Ukraine included the Russian news agency Sputnik on its sanctions list for three years and blocked the news agency's assets and websites. The restrictions imposed by Kiev also apply to the RIA Novosti Ukraine portal, whose head, Kirill Vyshinsky, was arrested in Kiev earlier in May, as well as to the Rossiyasegodnya.rf, Sputniknews.com, Ria.ru, Rsport.ria.ru, 1prime.ru as well as realty.ria.ru websites.

The technology has been developed by an NGO (non-governmental organisation) and is being offered for free. However, no private sector technology company has yet taken up the offer to use it on its social media platforms to prevent extremists from spreading their message. Former European Affairs Minister Lucinda Creighton briefed a select international group of counter-terror experts on how the new software can stop extremists using the internet to spread hate messages and recruit, but is widely being ignored by tech companies. Ms Creighton was speaking at the Countering Violent Extremism conference in London last week. She has joined the Counter Extremism Project (CEP), a new international not-for-profit NGO created to help governments and the tech community combat the growing levels of extremist activity taking place on social media. Ms Creighton told the conference how CEP had developed technology to help counter extremism and was offering it free of charge. The technology is … [Read more...] about Free tech on offer to block out extremist messages
SOCIAL MEDIA erupted with speculation tonight that the Royal Family's website had accidentally revealed the baby's name... but it looks like a red herring. Royal watchers claimed a web page had been reserved for a 'Prince Albert' as the world waits for William and Kate to announce the name. But it seems the cocky internet sleuths may have driven themselves a up a dead end in the desperate hunt for answers. They claim the page at www.royal.uk/prince-albert reads Access Denied - the same message that greets visitors trying to visit that page or those of the newborn's siblings. But it appears the 'Access denied' message only appears when a user is searching for a member of the Royal family who already exists on the website. For example, when a name - such as Elizabeth, George or Albert - is already the name of a Royal, dead or alive, then the number 0 is put after their name in the search bar. This brings up the biography page for the already existing Royal. After the … [Read more...] about Royal baby web sleuths claim Royal website hints Prince ALBERT is baby name… but is it a red herring?
