Last February, software engineer Gabriel Lewis tweeted that adding your mobile number to your account as a two-step verification method (in which you confirm a login by entering a one-time code sent to your phone) could result in Facebook sending you text-message notifications about everyday activity on the social network. At the time, Facebook apologized and said the text spam was an error. This March, another developer, Jeremy Burge, tweeted that numbers you add for two-step verification still aren’t reserved for that security use. Instead, other Facebook users can search for them – and advertisers who upload contacts lists, called Custom Audiences, can also match you that way. That time, Facebook did not apologize, noting that it hasn’t … [Read more...] about Facebook have your number? How to get your mobile phone unlisted

THERE are many reasons why right now feels like a new beginning for Kelly Brook. Once the darling of the lads’ mags and tabloids, she was just as famous for the highs and lows of her personal life as she was for her career as a presenter, actress and pin-up. Curve Warrior Strapping Body, £45 from Figleaves — buy now Whether the attention was courted or not (and she says mostly not), a few years ago she took her foot off the gas and swapped London and LA for a quiet life in the Kent countryside. Apart from the odd red-carpet photocall here and the occasional TV appearance there, she’s been ensconced in her country bolthole with model boyfriend of four years Jeremy Parisi.

The girl who … [Read more...] about Kelly Brook says she won’t ‘pressure Jeremy Parisi into getting engaged’ and opens up about why she feels judged for not having kids

I will try and cover both, including in answering questions later, but if I may, given the intense political crisis, I want to focus primarily on where we now are, and why we are there, and then look again at what our real options are. We desperately need clear and honest thinking about our choices not just for the weeks but for the years, indeed decades, ahead. I continue to think that our political debate is bedevilled by what, at the time I resigned, I termed “muddled thinking”, and by fantasies and delusions as to what our options really are in the world as it is.
