Fortune and Personality – Chinese Zodiac 2020 



The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. 
According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.


The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi and the midnight hours. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. 

Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children.

Rats are clever, quick thinkers; successful, but content with living a quiet and peaceful life.


Recent years of the Rat are: 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020.

Paired with the Celestial Stems (天干—Tiān gān), there is a 60-year calendrical cycle. Although zi is associated with water, the years also cycle through the five elements of nature (五行—wǔ xíng).

See the table below for the full details of each year.

On the financial side, they like saving and can be stingy. However, their love for hoarding will sometimes cause them to waste money on unnecessary things.

ELEMENT YEAR FORTUNE

Metal 1960, 2020 These Rats tend to be reliable and live a stable life. They may hold some power and are able to turn unlucky events into fortune.

Water 1972, 2032 These Rats encounter hardships in the early days. They become successful during their middle ages and create a happy family. However, relatives and close friends may weigh them down.

Similar to Dragons, Monkeys get along great with Rats, and tend to live happily ever after like a fairytale.
Least compatible with Rat: HorseGoat and Rabbit

The Earthly Branches of Rat and Horse clash strongly. No matter what a Rat does, it won’t be enough for the Horse.

Goats are attracted to Rat’s wealth and hope to control it, making it a rocky relationship.

The Rabbit will either purposely or unintentionally go against the Rat’s wishes, while the Rat can only keep silent.

Careers fit for Rats

Because of their independence and imagination, they are suitable for creative jobs. These include authors, editors and artists. However, if they join a team, their creative outlet may be blocked.

Rats also pay attention to fine detail. They are fit for technical work, such as engineering and architecture.

They are alert, but have a lack of courage. This makes them unsuitable as police officers, entrepreneurs or other leadership and political positions. Although Rats make good financial decisions, they should be careful not to invest with a close friend. It will not only cause money problems, but also affect the friendship.
Health and lifestyle

Since childhood, Rats have frail health. They have energetic personalities, but tire quickly. They catch colds often, but thankfully do not have serious illnesses.

They are sensitive to change in temperature. Not only is cold weather unbearable for them, they also can’t stand hot weather. But despite seeming weak and not being able to perform hard physical work, they enjoy longevity.

Rats can eat anything, whether they are delicacies or plain food. However, they should pay attention to their diet. Many times, they will get too into work and forget to eat. Going long periods without food and suddenly bingeing cause problems in their digestive system. Enemies of their health also include smoking and drinking habits.

For a healthy life, Rats must remember to eat breakfast, do moderate exercise and remain cheerful.

Horoscope

Rats in the Year of the Rat (2020)

Although a zodiac’s year is traditionally the most unfortunate, laden with bad omens and mishaps, 2020 will perform reasonably well for the Rat. Success will come in the form of career; celebrate the fact that your efforts will be rewarded and seen. On the other hand, your health and relationships will prove to be a struggle. Visit your doctor at the first sign of illness, and work toward creating a loving, open environment for all of your relationships. The year will have its issues, but the positive factors can turn it around.
Career

Even though the year will be a challenge in many areas, the Rat’s career will not be among them. Success will flourish in the workplace, yielding benefits of all kinds. Hard work will be rewarded; your clever skills, quick-thinking, and optimism will drive you forward. Exclusive bonuses will come to those born in the first half of the year. Rats born in the following months will have to push a bit harder for their goals.

Finances will be booming for the entirety of the year! Your income might even double. It would do you well to save and invest your hard-earned money. Try to avoid spending it all on luxurious items and vacations. Instead, splurge on little experiences here and there. Take your family to a theme park or your husband on a dinner date. Your girlfriend might enjoy a trip to the fair.

Lucky Months: March, September, and November.

Unlucky Months: April, July, and October.
Education

The Rat will maintain a decent academic standing in their educational studies. Hard work will be valued and necessary. With the right amount of focus on your studies, you will surely meet your goals. Be wary of your well-being; stress over your course schedule might get you down and even cause illness. Avoid sickness by pairing vitamins with at least seven to eight hours of sleep and proper nutrition. Although you might want to enjoy a full social calendar, it would be better to take some downtime to recuperate.
Health

Vulnerable to sicknesses, like colds and fatigue, the Rat will have to be extra careful in 2020. At the first sign of symptoms, head to your general practitioner immediately. The faster you get medicine and the treatment you need, the quicker you will heal. To stay healthy, do your body a favor and eat more proteins and vegetables; boost your immune system by adding vitamins to your diet as well. As a general rule, proper diet, exercise, and sleep keep one healthy.
Relationships

Luck is also not in your favor this year for love. Romance will be hard to come by for married couples and singles alike. You will face many struggles throughout the year; however, your innate positivity will help you push through hard times. If you’re single, it is best to avoid longing for a partner this year. The likelihood of finding someone long-term is very low. Instead, have fun and enjoy the freedom of not being tied down romantically. Enjoy light conversation, some partying (but not too much) and meet new people. Take this bad news and look for the bright side!

The same misfortune goes for married couples; be on the lookout for challenges in your relationship. Petty arguments, financial battles, or suspicions might plague your love-life. When these issues surface, don’t let them fester. Deal with everything head on to experience a better year. Focus on the love you have for your partner; this person is your home, your safe zone, and your beloved. Keep yourself grounded in love.
Lifestyle

Rats will experience both successes and failures in the Year of the Rat. Success will show itself in the workplace and education, while relationships and health will be the areas that suffer. Overall, the year has a far better outlook than one’s typical zodiac year suggests. Rats should rejoice in their good fortune. Their natural ability to create success is a gift, a gift that will prove itself in financial gain. If you are feeling nervous about the year ahead, protect yourself with a Buddha statue. And have hope for good times to come amidst misfortune. 










The rate


The rat is adaptable and resourceful, has good intuition, a strong imagination and a deep curiosity but they don't have much courage. They're generally kind, but they can also be impolite so they don't make great leaders



Rat: 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960 
Ox: 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961 
Tiger: 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962 
Rabbit: 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963 
Dragon: 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964 
Snake: 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965 
Horse: 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966 
Sheep: 2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967 
Monkey: 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968 
Rooster: 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969 
Dog: 2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970 
Pig: 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971 

The years above are a rough guide; bear in mind that if you were born in January or February it may be slightly different as the new year moves between January 21 and February 20.



The years allocated to each animal are in a very specific order. According to an ancient Chinese folk story, the Jade Emperor had called 13 animals to a meeting and announced that the years on the calendar would be named according to the order they arrived in. This led to ‘The Great Race’. 

The rat travelled on the back of the ox, leaping from its back to nab first place. The pig stopped for a snack and a nap and arrived last; a cat was also in the race but drowned during the competition, leading to there being only 12 animals in the zodiac.
Who should be on their guard this year?

According to Chinese astrology, the year of your birth sign is believed to be one of the most unlucky years of your life. It is thought that people in their zodiac year offend Tai Sui, the God of Age, and incur his curse.

Famous names who should be wary this year include Jeremy Clarkson (1960) and Idris Elba (1972), as well as the Duke of Sussex, Katy Perry, and Scarlett Johansson (all born in 1984).

Lewis Capaldi (1996) was also born in the Year of the Rat, plus Gary Lineker and Jonathan Ross (both born in 1960).

Lucky Signs for the Rat

Lucky numbers for people born in the Year of the Rat are two and three, and their lucky colours are blue, green and gold. Their lucky flowers are lilies and African violets and their lucky directions are west, northwest and southwest. 
The Personality of the Rat

People born in the Year of the Rat are characterised as smart, resourceful and quick-witted. They have great imaginations and make sharp observations, with the ability to take advantage of several opportunities. 



While their weak communication skills can sometimes come across as rude, they are kind and sensitive to other people's emotions. 

They also enjoy saving their money, but this personality trait can sometimes cause them to waste their money on unnecessary things. 

Strengths: Intelligent, optimistic and adaptable

Weaknesses: Stubborn, timid and greedy
Why do the Chinese value rats?

Rats symbolise wealth, intelligence, success and wisdom to the Chinese. In terms of the Yin and Yang theory, they are the yang and signify the beginning of a new day. They also represent the midnight hours and the Earthly Branch Zi. 

A person born in the Year of the Rat is thought to be clever, optimistic and favoured by all. In particular, men born in this year are able to adapt to new situations, while women take a caring, organised approach.

As rats tend to have a strong reproductive capacity, the Chinese say they are a sign of virility and married couples have been known to pray to them, in hope of conceiving. In fact, Chinese astrology specialists suggest that 2020, the Year of the Metal Rat, is a good time to give birth as metal symbolises stability and longevity. Those born in the Year of the Metal Rat tend to live a stable life and have the ability turn unlucky events into fortune.

China coronavirus linked to Bat & Snake

posted 23 Jan 2020, 22:54 by Happi Mess   [ updated ]













Reporting



CORONAVIRUS which has killed at least 17 people in China could have spread to humans from bat soup, it's been claimed.

The outbreak of coronavirus began in the city of Wuhan - which has since been put in lockdown after more than 600 people were infected globally.

Bats have been linked to the spread of the coronavirus by some experts



Disturbing footage purporting to show someone eating bat soup has sparked fears that the deadly coronavirus could have been spread from the Chinese delicacy



Scientists in China yesterday claimed that the deadly strain shares a common ancestor with a virus found only in fruit bats.

Since then footage and images have been circulated purporting to show people eating the Chinese delicacy.





What we know so far

Experts have warned the virus could as deadly as the post WWI Spanish flu which killed millions
The virus has spread to Thailand, Taiwan, Japan and the US
UK experts have said they believe the virus could already be in the UK
Latest analysis by Chinese scientists suggests virus passed from bats to snakes then humans
Wuhan in lockdown for a month as public transport and people told to avoid crowd

Bat soup is reported to be an unusual but popular dish particularly in Wuhan, where the virus is understood to have originated at an open air fish market.

Unconfirmed footage posted on social media show people eating soup from a bowl with a grinning dead bat on the side.

Another image appears to show a dead bat with its stomach removed and filled with a broth.




Scientific backing






A new study published in the China Science Bulletin earlier this week claimed that the new coronavirus shared a strain of virus found in bats.

Previous deadly outbreaks of SARS and Ebola were also believed to have originated in the flying mammal.

Experts had thought the new virus wasn't capable of causing an epidemic as serious as those outbreaks because its genes were different.

But this research appeared to prove otherwise, while scientists scrabble to produce a vaccine - something that could take at least a year.




The new study was carried out jointly by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the People’s Liberation Army and Institut Pasteur of Shanghai.

It revealed that the virus has a "strong binding affinity" to a human protein called ACE2.

The researchers said that this binding protein had a high resemblance to that of SARS - which killed almost 800 and infected 8,000 people worldwide in 2002-2003.

They also traced the evolution of the new strain of coronavirus in a government database and found that on the evolutionary tree, it belonged to Betacoronavirus.

The two shared about 70 to 80 per cent of genes, less than the similarity between pigs and humans.

Their findings suggest that the danger posed by the new strain of coronavirus, named 2019-nCoV, may have been underestimated in the research community.

Bat soup is reportedly a delicacy in the Chinese city of Wuhan - where the virus originated

In a statement, the researchers said: “The Wuhan coronavirus’ natural host could be bats … but between bats and humans there may be an unknown intermediate."

But a senior researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, who asked not to be named, said the findings should be treated with caution.

He told the South China Morning Post: “It is based on calculation by a computer model.

“Whether it will match what happens in real life is inconclusive.

“The binding protein is important, but it is just one of the many things under investigation. There may be other proteins involved.”

The expert believes that the new strain was an RNA virus, meaning that its mutation speed was 100 times faster than that of a DNA virus such as smallpox.
Jumped from snakes?



Scientists at Peking University also claim that the deadly virus was passed to humans from bats - via snakes, which are sold at the open-air market in Wuhan.

The researchers said that the new 2019-nCoV strain is made up of a combination of one that affects bats and another unknown coronavirus.

They believe that combined genetic material from both picked up a protein that allows viruses bind to certain host cells - including those of humans.

After analysing the genes of the strains the team found that snakes were susceptible to the most similar version of the coronavirus.

It meant that they likely provided a "reservoir" for the viral strain to grow stronger and replicate.

Snakes are sold at the Huanan Seafood Market in central Wuhan - where the deadly outbreak is thought to have started - and may have jumped to other animals before passing to humans, they say.

Writing in the Journal of Medical Virology, the authors said: "Results derived from our evolutionary analysis suggest for the first time that snake is the most probable wildlife animal reservoir for the 2019-nCoV.



"New information obtained from our evolutionary analysis is highly significant for effective control of the outbreak caused by the 2019-nCoV-induced pneumonia."
Lockdown

It comes as the city of Wuhan was put into lockdown as the Chinese authorities desperately try to contain the virus.

Residents in nearby Huanggang have also been told not to leave the city other than under special circumstances.

At airports in other cities with direct flights to Wuhan, body temperatures of passengers arriving from China have been closely monitored.

But travellers arriving in the UK from the city were given leaflets explaining how they can seek help if they become unwell while in the UK.








What is coronavirus ?



Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds that include diarrhea in cows and pigs, and upper respiratory disease in chickens. In humans, the virus causes respiratory infections, which are often mild, but are potentially lethal.



Coronavirus is an airborne virus, spread in a similar way to colds and the flu.

The virus attacks the respiratory system, causing lung lesions.

Symptoms include a runny nose, headache, cough and fever, shortness of breath, chills and body aches.

It is incredibly contagious and is spread through contact with anything the virus is on as well as infected breath, coughs or sneezes.

Symptoms include a runny nose, headache, cough and fever, shortness of breath, chills and body aches.

In most cases, you won't know whether you have a coronavirus or a different cold-causing virus, such as rhinovirus.

But if a coronavirus infection spreads to the lower respiratory tract (your windpipe and your lungs), it can cause pneumonia, especially in older people, people with heart disease or people with weakened immune systems.






No vaccine 


No for coronavirus

In 2003 an outbreak of a similar virus, SARS, infected more than 8,000 people in 37 countries before it was brought under control, killing 800 of those worldwide.

Disease expert Professor Neil Ferguson fears the coronavirus could already have arrived in the UK on one of the three flights a week from Wuhan, China, where the virus originated.

Aircraft from the Chinese city are landing in an isolated area of Heathrow Terminal 4 to limit the potential spread of the infection.

Officials say they have no plans to introduce blanket temperature screening of all passengers – as the measure has failed in the past.

Public Health England has upgraded the coronavirus risk to the UK from "very low" to "low".

The infection, linked to a seafood market in Wuhan, has spread to Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and the United States





Video





China is restricting travel of 30 million people as the coronavirus death toll rises to at least 26, with more than 900 confirmed cases worldwide. CNN’s David Culver traveled to Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, and scrambled to flee the city before authorities placed the city of 11 million on a partial lockdown.









Breaking News



27/01/20 Coronavirus Is Worse Than You've Been Told: Scientist Explains


To get Chris Martenson's report on pandemic preparation


Well, this is a report I really hoped never to write. 

But we all need to get our head on straight around this fast-spreading viral outbreak. 
A pandemic is #3 on my personal “oh shit” list (a prolonged grid-down event is #2, and 
a global world war with nukes is, by far, #1) Once a pandemic spreads to my neck of 
the woods, I’m not going to be doing anything in the company of strangers. No shopping, 
no going to restaurants, and especially no traveling in closed up metal tubes with 
recirculated air (i.e. planes and trains). I won’t be alone in those behaviors. 
How many airline pilots, train conductors, trash collectors, and medical personnel 
have to call in “sick” to disrupt the entire system? Not that many. So why is this 
Wuhan New Coronavirus (officially “2019-ncov”) a substantially more dangerous
 threat than the standard flu?

The report







MLVPD


Thomas reportedly told police that he would do it again.


Las Vegas Metropolitan Police have released video of a 93-year-old man shooting his apartment manager reportedly over water damage.

In a press briefing Monday, Assistant Sheriff Brett Zimmerman unveiled the jaw-dropping footage, which showed the nonagenarian calmly walking into the apartment complex manager's office before shooting the helpless man twice.

Thomas — who has no criminal history — was reportedly upset his apartment had flooded and blamed management staff, so brought along a Glock 9mm to help voice his concerns.


CCTV footage shows him walking into the office on January 2, wearing a black coat and hat, and talking to the manager and his assistant. A few moments later he calmly removes the handgun from his inside pocket, prompting the shocked female assistant to call the police.

Unperturbed, Thomas then points the gun at a wall and fires a warning shot; the bullet goes straight through it and through a computer screen on the far side, as a third staff member can be seen in the foreground making a hasty exit.

After allowing the female staff member to leave, he aims the gun at the managers leg and fires another round, sending him crumpling to the floor.



Like a scene from a gangster film, Thomas stands over him and lets him writhe around in pain for a few moments, before he takes careful aim and fires a second round into his other leg.

Just seconds later, an armed officer is on the scene; screaming at him to drop the gun, the cop fires a round through the glass door, shattering it.

Thomas places his gun on the desk before the officer bursts in and pulls him to the ground, arresting him.


He was charged with attempted murder with a deadly weapon, kidnapping with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm within a structure, burglary with a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon, according to Fox5.

The apartment manager was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

According to prosecutors, Thomas told police that he would do it again. He told the court that he didn't want to kill the victim, just "mess him up a little.

Australia fires: Misleading images & pictures go viral

Bogus, misleading bushfire images do rounds on social media 

The report



misleading images 

Tammy Holmes and her grandchildren in 2013, left, and a photoshopped image of a girl with a koala.


They are images that stir emotions, opening hearts and sometimes purse strings: a girl in a lake, surrounded by bushfires, clinging to a koala, or a satellite image showing a continent ablaze. Only problem is, they are not real.

The proliferation of bogus or misleading images and claims about the current bushfire crisis doing the rounds on social media range from the silly to the sinister.

They are creating headaches for responsible news outlets, work for image-verifying services, anger from fire victims and concern from law-enforcement agencies.



misleading images 

Tammy Holmes and her grandchildren during bushfires in Tasmania in 2013.


“We are seeing a huge amount of misinformation relating to these fires,” said Stephanie Hunt, Australian editor of Storyful, which sources, verifies and analyses social media content for local and international news outlets.

As well as the bogus, Hunt said, some of the images social media users — including some celebrities — are circulating as evidence of the current horrors are in fact from earlier bushfires.

For example, a video widely posted on social media sites in recen­t days showing a dramatic collision between fire trucks is from the 2015 Pinery fire in South Australia.



misleading images 


South Australia’s Pinery fire in 2015.

Hunt said the video was shared by personalities including Nine Network sports presenter Erin Molan and former rugby player Wendell Sailor, accumulating tens of thousands of views on each ­occasion in a relatively short time.

Many, doubtless including Molan and Sailor, were innocently posting or reposting such images, but Hunt urged people to do what they could to check the origins of the material before posting.

“You can do a Google image search but also generally if something looks too good to be true, it often is, so don’t just share something without thinking about where it’s come from,” she said.

There are several examples of maps or even apparent satellite images being posted that vastly exaggerate the scale of the fires.



misleading images 

A viral photo that looks like a NASA shot of Australia.

One such image on Facebook has now been marked with a warning from the social media giant’s new fact-check feature, warning that it is “false information”. Another map tweeted by the US ABC network exaggerates the area ­affected by fire. “A superimposed map of Australia over the US shows the scale of the massive wildfires that have spread across the country,’’ ABC News tweeted.

America's ABC News tweeted this exaggerated map “showing the scale of the fires’’. Picture: Twitter

Other material is far more serious, including scams fraudulently seeking to extract money from people for victims.

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission is receiving dozens of bushfire scam reports­ daily, and warns of more to come. “Scams are fairly widespread and that will only get worse,” said ACCC chairman Rod Sims. “So far we’ve seen scams where people are contacting individuals to get them to donate.

“I’m expecting we’re going to get scams where people present themselves as insurers or ­emergency relief providers and then through that seek to get people’s bank account details and take money out of their account­s. “We’ve had 20 reports of scams today (Tuesday). We’ve had ­Twitter crowd-funding scams, phone call scams, people being approach­ed over the web, and one where relatives of a man who died were supposedly setting up a crowd-funding site and that was fake.”

That last scam — in which fraudsters hijacked images, names and a social media account — caught out friends of NSW bushfire victims Robert and Patrick Salway by sending them a Messenger request for donations.

One who fell for the scam was Canberra woman Renee Payne, who had a past link with the family­. Her criminologist husband, Jason Payne, said people’s compassion made them vulnerable at such times.

“My wife was one of about 48 people who received the message sent out to those who knew the Salways,” said Dr Payne. “It seems legitimate if it comes through to you with the apparent social endorsement of your friendship group. My wife responded in a compassio­nate way to what appeare­d to be a genuine request and immediately made a donation. It was the right thing to do; just the wrong site to do it through.

“I think there is quite a good likelihood that as a community we become less protective of ourselves­ at these times.”

While scammers’ motivation is clearly financial, false claims and conspiracy theories being pushed on social media — including that the fires were deliberately lit to clear a path for a high-speed rail link, and that the firefighter who gave Scott Morrison a mouthful faces dismissal — may be politically motiv­ated. However, Dr Payne said criminologists were yet to fathom why some would doctor­ or misrepresent ­images without a cash motive.

People wanting to donate to bushfire victims can do so safely by checking their chosen charity is registered at the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission site acnc.gov.au/charity.





Source

Artist's visualisation misinterpreted

One image shared widely by Twitter users, including by singer Rihanna, was interpreted as a map showing the live extent of fire spread, with large sections of the Australian coastline molten-red and fiery.




misleading images 



But it is actually artist Anthony Hearsey's visualisation of one month of data of locations where fire was detected, collected by Nasa's Fire Information for Resource Management System.

"The scale is a little exaggerated due to the render's glow, but it is generally true to the info from the Nasa website. Also note that not all the areas are still burning, and this is a compilation," Mr Hearsey wrote on Instagram in response to criticism by viewers that the image was misleading.
Misleading symbols

Another widely shared map of flame icons dotted across the country claims to show "all the fires burning in Australia".



misleading images 


It is taken from the Australian government website MyFireWatch, which uses satellite data to map heat sources.

However the data incorporates "any heat source that is hotter than its surroundings... This may include gas flares, refinery furnaces or highly reflective large industrial roofs", according to its website.

That means that the symbols are not guaranteed to indicate actual fires.

Another issue is that the hotspot symbols do not represent the actual size of fires or the danger posed by them.

Screenshots of maps shared on social media like this often omit important details from the originals, such as the level of risk posed by fire and whether it is under control.

misleading images 



Image copyright New South Wales Rural Fire Service; MyFireWatchImage caption In contrast to MyFireWatch maps (left), blue symbols on New South Wales Rural Fire Service maps (right) give 'Advice' warnings, indicating no immediate danger

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service publishes live mapped fire information, using symbols to indicate the alert level from "advice" (no immediate danger) to "emergency warning".

On 7 January, the red and orange fire symbols in the MyFireWatch map of New South Wales (NSW) are all ranked as "advice" alerts by the NSW rural fire service.



misleading images 

Media captionAustralia fires: "Nothing left" for animals that survive


As some Twitter users pointed out, maps that claim to show the size of the affected area by "overlaying" Australia on to other continents like North America and Europe are not completely accurate.

misleading images 



This is due to how how the curved earth is distorted when flat map projections are made.
How BBC News made maps of Australia fires

BBC News produced a visual guide to the fires, which uses a range of data sources to produce maps and other visualisations.




To produce the map of fires, BBC journalists used Python code to extract geographic data from the live fire maps produced by the NSW and Victoria fire services.

"This allows us to plot the complicated fire area shapes quickly on to more basic maps. We've been updating it every one-to-two days while the fires have been at their height and will continue to do so as long as the crisis lasts," data journalist Tom Housden explained.

The BBC's visualisations also used Nasa's fire data to map how the fires spread.

Nasa told the BBC that although its data is collected by satellites that detect heat, including non-fire hotspots like gas flares, these sources account for "less than 1% of the data"

Australia Fires Map




What has happened so far?


On September 6, northern areas in New South Wales began experiencing bushfires. The blaze carried through until October, tragically killing two.
The following day, on September 7 a number of out of control blazes threatened townships across South Eastern and Northern Queensland, destroying several homes.
On September 8, a historic lodge in the Gold Coast that had stood for 86 years was destroyed in the fires, which had previously razed several homes.
On September 9, a blaze on the Sunshine Coast tore through homes.
On September 10, a heartbreaking image was circulated online showing a burnt koala bear shielding her tiny baby from harm.
And on the same day, The Sun revealed that I’m A Celebrity could be under threat from the raging wildfires, as they swept dangerously close to the £7million state-of-the-art studio.

October
In Southeast New South Wales, late October saw the start of a number of bushfires in remote woodland.
These blazes raged on, eventually becoming one massive inferno, dubbed the Wattle Creek Fire.
Several fires also broke out across Tasmania during the month.
On october 30, the heartbreaking news that hundreds of koalas were thought to have been burned alive as fires swept through an important koala breeding ground.

November
Throughout November, 1,228,050 acres of land was destroyed in a bushfire at a national park in NSW.
The country saw terrifying apocalyptic scenes as families were trapped inside their homes and skies turned red in November.
In Queensland, 49,000 acres and six homes were destroyed on November 11.
And on the same day in South Australia authorities warned of an "uncontrolled" blaze heading towards homes in the area.
The following day, Sydney said they were braced for "catastrophe" and Russel Crowe's mansion came under threat.
On November 13, a terrifying 600 mile wide wall of flames swept across NSW.
And in a shocking rant, disgraced rugby star Israel Folau blamed the country's wildfires on same-sex marriage and abortion.
On November 19, Sydney was left "trapped" inside a thick cloud of smoke with dozens of people treated for asthma and breathing problems.
On November 20, a huge blaze broke out on Yorke peninsula, aircraft were scrambled to water bomb the blaze as it crept closer to two local towns.
On 21 November, lightning strikes ignited a series of fires in Victoria.

Forgotten history: 50 degrees everywhere, right across Australia in the 1800's





It is not a "climate emergency" - it is history repeating! This great article shows us examples of many times before the temperatures have exceeded 50C in Australia! 
Don’t believe your lying eyes — Australian newspaper archives are full of temperatures recorded higher than 121 in the shade which is 50C. All of these temperatures in the map below are found in historic newspaper archives. Measurements done after 1910 are even done with official Stevenson screens, yet the BOM “throws them away”

It’s true that ones done in the 1800s are often recorded on non-standard equipment, or are just literally “in the shade” under cover. So some of these, perhaps many, are one or two degrees too high. But even if we take two degrees off, how scary is global warming when Australia knew many days of 48C and 49C and some at 50C 120 years ago? The BOM — supposedly so concerned about the State of Our Climate — show little interest in talking about our history or in analyzing it, or even mentioning it.
And modern temperatures are recorded on electronic equipment, sometimes in areas affected by urban heat islands (concrete and cars).

Australians have been recording temperatures of over 50C since 1828, right across the country. In 1896 the heat was so bad for weeks that people fled on emergency trains to escape the inland heat. Millions of birds fell from the sky in 1932 due to the savage hot spell.

In 1939 outer Sydney reached 122F or over 50C – recorded at Windsor Observatory — a place that had had a Stevenson screen for around 40 years at that stage. Without fanfare, the Ballarat Star in January 1898 notes that there was a “genuine heat wave” in Blanchetown SA in November the year before. Temperatures of 120 and 121 are recorded on four days that month.


All these measurements are wrong?
ontrast that with last week when towns in the outback reached 48 and 49C and the Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Michael Efron said — “They are pretty incredible temperatures.” Seriously. It’s hard to believe that after a quadrillion megatons of emissions we are nearly as hot as we were in 1896? It’s as if hundreds of measurements of similar temperatures across four states of Australia and on many occasions from 1828 to 1939 don’t even exist.


The worst heatwave was probably January 1896 when the nation was “like a furnace”.

From a post in 2012: All these measurements are wrong too?
Extreme heat in 1896: Panic stricken people fled the outback on special trains as hundreds die.

It is as if history is being erased. For all that we hear about recent record-breaking climate extremes, records that are equally extreme, and sometimes even more so, are ignored.
In January 1896 a savage blast “like a furnace” stretched across Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks. The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states. Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F (48.9°C) on three days (1)(2)(3). The maximumun at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight.

Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling dead in the streets. Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night for hours, the thermometer recording 109F at midnight. Overnight, the temperature did not fall below 103°F. On Jan 18 in Wilcannia, five deaths were recorded in one day, the hospitals were overcrowded and reports said that “more deaths are hourly expected”. By January 24, in Bourke, many businesses had shut down (almost everything bar the hotels). Panic stricken Australians were fleeing to the hills in climate refugee trains.


It got hotter and hotter and the crowded trains ran on more days of the week
To get a feel for how widespread and devastating it was, read through just one report in one paper (there are scores more).

ABC Attempts to Memoryhole Story on Backburning Protesters

January 1, 2020 Martin Hartwig


ABC Gippsland has been caught attempting to memoryhole a story from September 2019 which covered greenies protesting against routine planned backburning.




ABC Gippsland has been caught red handed attempting to memoryhole a story they posted back in September 2019 which covered Greenies protesting against routine planned backburning.

Credit to Evelyn Rae @_evelynrae and Caldron Pool @CaldronPool for getting this story out first, we’re going to help boost the signal to get this important message to as many people as possible.

Despite ABC Gippsland trying to make the story go away, the internet has a long memory. While morons push the ‘Climate Change Fires’ narrative hoping that their lies will stick into the public consciousness, you’ve got to give the public some credit. We’re not as stupid as you think we are Larissa.
Disappearing ABC Gippsland Backburning Protest Story

The story mentioned the logic behind the protests being that the undergrowth contained moisture, conceding that everything else was “still so dry”.

The protesters claimed that the backburning was a risk to habitats, with one sign that read “Spring Burns Kill Baby Birds Alive” & another which read “Stop Burning Nesting Birds”.Screen capture of deleted post: Michael Ayling & Caldron Pool








One of the protesters, Mary from Nowa Nowa said she hoped she wouldn’t be fined for her protest, stating “I’m more worried about climate change, and the impact the burns are having. I’m worried for my grandchildren.” Yeah that’s great but have you tried thinking about the impacts of NOT backburning? Gippsland is now in the grips of devastating bush fires.You risk empowering people like this. Taken by yours truly (Martin Hartwig) at 2019 ‘Invasion Day’ rally in Brisbane

Given that many of the fires this season were deliberately lit, perhaps it isn’t wise to help them by literally adding fuel to the fire.

In a follow up story, ABC Gippsland reported that the protests were a success, in reducing the burn from a planned 370 hectares down to only nine. Probably not a good thing, in retrospect.Screen capture of deleted post: Michael Ayling & Caldron Pool

We covered early last year the previous Victorian bush fires and how they were exacerbated by meddling greenies adamant that they were protecting the environment. The call seems to be falling on deaf ears. The time for ignorance and being misinformed is over. There is no excuse for this sort of deadly ignorance regarding bush fire risk reduction.
Story Gaining Momentum

Sky news will be featuring Caldron Pool’s story tonight! Congratulations!

If you enjoyed this you may also enjoy my article from December of last year where Riccardo Bosi spoke out against the climate council’s role in exacerbating the bush fires by interfering with backburning.

MAN FAKED DEAF 48 YEARS TO AVOID talking to WIFE

The deal




MAN FAKED BEING DEAF FOR 48 YEARS TO AVOID LISTENING TO HIS WIFE




A man from Pensacola Florida is getting a divorce after the man faked being deaf for 48 years so that he wouldn’t have to listen to his wife.

A man from Pensacola Florida faked being deaf for 48 years so that he wouldn’t have to listen to what his wife said. That mans name is William McGurthy. McGurthy stated that this all began 48 years ago. After coming home from a long day of working in the coal mines of Virginia, he had to listen to his wife bitch and complain. “When are you going to fix this, when are you going to do that”. Because of this, he claimed he had enough, and the following day faked an injury to his head, which supposedly left him deaf.

After claiming to be deaf, McGurth went as far as to learn sign language. He learned it in less than 6 months. His wife, Judy McGurthy, also learned it. However, it took her almost two years to really get it down so that she could communicate with her husband. This is when things took yet another bizarre turn. William McGurthy got tired of using sign language to speak to his wife. As a result, he also faked being able to see well. In fact, This bought William more time of not communicating with his wife.

Mrs. McGurthy said this: “It took me two years to learn to communicate with my hands. As soon as I got good at it, he began having problems with his sight. He’s an evil evil man and he never listens to me! There were chores and things he needed to fix around the house that he said he would fix but never did!“
William McGurthy’s Attorney And Child





Mr. McGurthy’s lawyer, Ben DerHover, admits his client faked being deaf but said he did it “for his wife”, adding “it’s the only way to endure that annoying pile of meat”.

Mr. McGurthy’s lawyer, Ben DerHover, states that the elderly man’s strategy was not meant to hurt or offend his wife. He claims it was meant to save their marriage, and it worked. “Had my client not faked his deafness, they would have been divorced 50 years ago. Their only child Dick McGurthy knew about this lie at a young age. He kept it from his mother along with his Father William.”

This story is pure gold. In fact, it’s almost as good as the 31yr old who identified himself as a pee-wee football player.

“My client is pretty quiet and not very talkative, but his wife is annoyingly chatty. So much so that she makes you want to shoot yourself in the nuts. If he hadn’t faked being deaf, they would have divorced 60 years ago. In a way, he did it for her and for his family.”

Al Gore shows Global Warming Fraud

posted 26 Dec 2019, 22:54 by Happi Mess   [ updated 15 Jan 2020, 00:16 ]








And changed the alarmism from global cooling to global warming, and now climate change.





Although his science is often seriously wrong, no one can deny that Al Gore has a flare for the dramatic. Speaking about climate change in an October 12 PBS interview, the former vice-president proclaimed, “We have a global emergency.” Referring to the most recent UN climate report, Gore claimed it showed that current global warming “could actually extend to an existential threat to human civilization on this planet as we know it.”

Al Gore’s overblown rhetoric makes no sense, of course. Yet his hyperbolic claims beg the question: How did this all start?

Back in the 1970s, media articles warning of imminent climate change problems began to appear regularly. TIME and Newsweek ran multiple cover stories asserting that oil companies and America’s capitalist life style were causing catastrophic damage to Earth’s climate. They claimed scientists were almost unanimous in their opinion that manmade climate change would reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century.

The April 28, 1975 Newsweek proposed solutions that even included outlawing internal combustion engines.

This sounds very similar to today's climate change debate – except, in the 70s, the fear was manmade global cooling, not warming.

TIME magazine’s January 31, 1977 cover featured a story, “How to Survive The Coming Ice Age.” It included “facts” such as scientists predicting that Earth’s so-called average temperature could drop by 20 degrees Fahrenheit due to manmade global cooling. Dr. Murray Mitchell of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned readers that “the drop in temperature between 1945 and 1968 had taken us one sixth of the way to the next Ice Age temperature.”

Global cooling gained considerable traction with the general public. But then, instead of cooling as long predicted by manmade climate change advocates, the planet started warming again. Something had to be done to rescue the climate change agenda from utter disaster. Enter Al Gore.

Al Gore Sr., a powerful Senator from Tennessee, saw to it that his son was elected to the House of Representatives, serving from 1977 to 1985, then going on to the Senate from 1985 to 1993. Gore Junior’s primary issue was his conviction that the Earth would perish if we did not eliminate fossil fuels.

Gore advanced to Vice President under President Bill Clinton, where he was able to enact policies and direct funding to ensure that the climate change agenda became a top priority of the United States Government. Gore’s mission was boosted when Clinton gave him authority over the newly created President’s Council on Sustainable Development.

It will come as no surprise then that, when the Council’s Charter was revised on April 25, 1997, the “Scope of Activities” included the following direction to the Council:

Advise the President on domestic implementation of policy options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Council should not debate the science of global warming [emphasis added], but should instead focus on the implementation of national and local greenhouse gas reduction policies and activities, and adaptations in the U.S. economy and society that maximize environmental and social benefits, minimize economic impacts, and are consistent with U.S. international agreements. The Council should, at a minimum, identify and encourage potentially replicable examples of reductions in greenhouse gas emissions across diverse sectors and levels of society.

Considering that the Council was tasked with advising the President “on matters involving sustainable development,” and alternative points of view on the science of climate change were effectively excluded, it was a foregone conclusion that the Clinton administration would go in the direction Gore wanted. Indeed, in their cover letter to the President accompanying their 1999 report, Advancing Prosperity, Opportunity and a Healthy Environment for the 21st Century, the Council stated: “Our report presents consensus recommendations on how America can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and take other steps to protect the climate.”

A cornerstone of Gore’s strategy was to ensure that all high-ranking government officials who had any involvement with funding policies relating to climate change were in line with his vision. These agencies included the Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, National Science Foundation, Department of Education, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

An example of his power was shown when physicist Dr. William Happer, then Director of Energy Research at the Department of Energy, testified before Congress in 1993 that scientific data did not support the hypothesis of manmade global warming. Gore saw to it that Happer was immediately fired. Fifteen years later, Happer quipped, “I had the privilege of being fired by Al Gore, since I refused to go along with his alarmism. I did not need the job that badly.”

Al Gore was also able to leverage his high visibility, his movie awards, his Nobel Prize, and his involvement in various carbon trading and other schemes into a personal fortune. When he ended his tenure as Vice President in 2001, his net worth was $2 million. By 2013, it exceeded $300 million.

Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth, provided a series of graphic images showing the apocalyptic consequences that some had predicted if fossil fuels were allowed to continue warming the planet. Images included melting glaciers, dying polar bears, spreading diseases, coastal cities inundated by massive floods, cities wiped out by hurricanes and tornadoes, and food supplies exterminated by droughts.

This compelling propaganda played a major role in frightening an entire generation about the future, causing young people and many parents to feel guilty about the role that they and their country were supposedly having in destroying our beautiful planet.

Since then, Americans have been told constantly that they should feel irresponsible if they drive cars or use fossil fuel energy to heat their homes or power their businesses. A rapid, massive conversion away from coal, oil and natural gas to renewable energy sources such and wind and solar, we are told, is the only hope for saving the planet.

Now children are increasingly depressed about their future, thanks to the constant barrage of global warming propaganda that they receive at school. Indeed, they have become so brainwashed and cowed by their peers that they no longer dare to question any statement made about catastrophic climate change.

Yet, essentially everything in Gore's climate change agenda is either wrong or highly misrepresented.

Now that he is President Donald Trump’s Senior Scientist for the National Security Council, Dr. Happer needs to show there is no “scientific consensus” on these issues, rekindle informed debate on climate and energy issues, and help bring hope, common sense and real science back into the discourse – to help end the dangerous mythology of dangerous manmade global warming

FREE Google AutoDraw Turns Scribbles Into art Icons

posted 5 Dec 2019, 20:29 by Happi Mess

short url this page 





















Report






Google’s latest A.I. experiment is a web-based drawing tool called AutoDraw that converts your rough scribbles and doodles into beautiful, 
symmetrical icons/clipart that you can download for free. It works on your phone, 
computer or tablet and uses artificial intelligence to guess and suggest a more polished icon or symbol to replace your drawing.








The program uses the same technology found in Quick, Draw! – an online game developed by Google that uses neural network artificial intelligence to guess what a user has drawn (it’s like playing Pictionary against a computer). The AI learns from each drawing, increasing its ability to guess correctly in the future.

AutoDraw also lets you draw freehand, without suggestions. Just like any other basic drawing app, you can fill and resize objects, change colors, add text in different fonts, draw polygonal shapes, etc.

The original drawings for AutoDraw were created by:
• HAWRAF, Design Studio
• Erin Butner, Designer
• Julia Melograna, Illustrator
• Pei Liew, Designer
• Simone Noronha, Designer
• Tori Hinn, Designer
• Selman Design, Creative Studio

You can also submit your own drawings here. Share this post with a designer friend and voice your views in the comments below.

The big list of Google alternative products

The complete list of alternatives to all Google products



With growing concerns over online privacy and securing personal data, more people than ever are considering alternatives to Google products. After all, Google’s business model essentially revolves around data collection and advertisements, both of which infringe on your privacy. More data means better (targeted) ads and more revenue. The company pulled in over $116 billion in ad revenue last year alone – and that number continues to grow


But the word is getting out. A growing number of people are seeking alternatives to Google products that respect their privacy and data. This guide aims to be the most exhaustive resource available for documenting alternatives to Google product. So let’s get started (in no particular order or preference)...

Google search alternatives

When it comes to privacy, using Google search is not a good idea. When you use their search engine, Google is recording your IP address, search terms, user agent, and often a unique identifier, which is stored in cookies.

Here are ten alternatives to Google search:

StartPage – StartPage gives you Google search results, but without the tracking (based in the Netherlands).

Searx – A privacy-friendly and versatile metasearch engine that’s also open source.

MetaGer – An open source metasearch engine with good features, based in Germany.

SwissCows – A zero-tracking private search engine based in Switzerland, hosted on secure Swiss infrastructure.

Qwant – A private search engine based in France.

DuckDuckGo – A private search engine based in the US.

Mojeek – The only true search engine (rather than metasearch engine) that has its own crawler and index (based in the UK).

YaCy – A decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer search engine.

Givero – Based in Denmark, Givero offers more privacy than Google and combines search with charitable donations.

Ecosia – Ecosia is based in Germany and donates a part of revenues to planting trees.


Note: With the exception of Mojeek, all of the private search engines above are technically metasearch engines, since they source their results from other search engines, such as Bing and Google.





Gmail alternatives

Gmail may be convenient and popular, but there are three major problems:
Your inbox is used as a data collection tool. (Did you know Google is tracking your purchasing history from the receipts in your inbox?)

Rather than seeing just emails, your email inbox is also used for ads and marketing.

The contents of your inbox are being shared with Google and other random third parties.

When you remain logged in to your Gmail account, Google can easily track your activities online as you browse different websites, which may be hosting Google Analytics or Google ads (Adsense).






Here are ten alternatives to Gmail that do well in terms of privacy:

Tutanota – based in Germany; very secure and private; free accounts up to 1 GB

Mailfence – based in Belgium; lots of features; free accounts up to 500 MB

Posteo – based in Germany; €1/mo with 14 day refund window

StartMail – based in Netherlands; $5.00/mo with 7 day free trial

Runbox – based in Norway; lots of storage and features; $1.66/mo with 30 day free trial

Mailbox.org – based in Germany; €1/mo with 30 day free trial

CounterMail – based in Sweden; $4.00/mo with 7 day free trial

Kolab Now – based in Switzerland; €4.41/mo with 30 day money-back guarantee

ProtonMail – based in Switzerland; free accounts up to 500 MB

Thexyz – based in Canada; $1.95/mo with 30 day refund window


More information on these providers is available in the secure and private email services guide.


Chrome alternatives

Google Chrome is a popular browser, but it’s also a data collection tool – and many people are taking notice. Just a few days ago, the Washington Post asserted that “Google’s web browser has become spy software,” with 11,000 tracker cookies observed in a single week. Here are seven alternatives for more privacy:


Firefox browser – Firefox is a very customizable, open-source browser that is popular in privacy circles. There are also many different Firefox modifications and tweaks that will give you more privacy and security. (Also check out Firefox Focus, a privacy-focused version for mobile users.)

Iridium – Based on open source Chromium, Iridium offers numerous privacy and security enhancements over Chrome, source code here.
GNU IceCat – A fork of Firefox from the Free Software Foundation.

Tor browser – A hardened and secured version of Firefox that runs on the Tor network by default. (It also does a good job against browser fingerprinting.)

Ungoogled Chromium – Just as the name says, this is an open source version of Chromium that has been “ungoogled” and modified for more privacy.

Brave – Brave is another Chromium-based browser that is rather popular. It blocks trackers and ads by default (except for “approved” ads that are part of the “Brave Ads” network).

Waterfox – This is a fork of Firefox that is configured for more privacy by default, with Mozilla telemetry stripped out of the code.

Of course, there are other alternatives to Chrome, such as Safari (from Apple), Microsoft Internet Explorer/Edge, Opera, and Vivaldi – but these also come with some privacy drawbacks.





Google Drive alternatives

If you’re looking for a secure cloud storage option, you can check out these Google Drive alternatives:

Tresorit – A user-friendly cloud storage option based in Switzerland.

ownCloud – An open source and self-hosted cloud platform developed in Germany.

Nextcloud – Nextcloud is also an open source, self-hosted file sharing and collaboration platform, based in Germany.

Sync – Based in Canada, Sync offers a secure, encrypted cloud storage solution for businesses and individuals.

Syncthing – Here we have a decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer cloud storage platform.


Of course, Dropbox is another popular Google drive alternative, but it’s not the best in terms of privacy.
Google Calendar alternative

Here are some Google Calendar alternatives:

Lightning Calendar is an open source calendar option developed by Mozilla, and it’s compatible with Thunderbird and Seamonkey.

Etar, an open source, basic calendar option.

Fruux, an open source calendar with good features and support for many operating systems.

For those wanting a combined solution for both email and calendar functionality, these providers offer that:






Google Docs / Sheets / Slides alternative

There are many solid Google Docs alternatives available. The largest offline document editing suite is, of course, Microsoft Office. As most people know, however, Microsoft is not the best company for privacy. Nonetheless, there are a few other good Google Docs alternatives:

CryptPad – CryptPad is a privacy-focused alternative with strong encryption, and it’s free.

Etherpad – A self-hosted collaborative online editor that’s also open source.

Zoho Docs – This is another good Google Docs alternative with a clean interface and good functionality, although it may not be the best for privacy.

OnlyOffice – OnlyOffice feels a bit more restricted than some of the other options in terms of features.

Cryptee – This is a privacy-focused platform for photo and document storage and editing. It’s open source and based in Estonia.

LibreOffice (offline) – You can use LibreOffice which is free and open source.

Apache OpenOffice (offline) – Another good open source office suite.





Google Photos alternative

Here are a few good Google Photos alternatives:

Piwigo – Piwigo is a great option that you can self-host. It is also free and open source.

Lychee – Lychee is another self-hosted, open source photo management platform.


Shoebox was another alternative, but it closed operations in June 2019.

YouTube alternatives

Unfortunately, YouTube alternatives can really be hit or miss, with most struggling to gain popularity.

Tip: Invidio.us is a great Youtube proxy that allows you to watch any Youtube video without logging in, even if the video is somehow restricted. To do this, simply replace [www.youtube.com] with [invidio.us] in the URL you want to view.

Google Translate alternative

Here are a few Google translate alternatives I have come across:

DeepL – DeepL is a solid Google Translate alternative that seems to give great results. Like Google Translate, DeepL allows you to post up to 5,000 characters at a time (but the pro version is unlimited). The user interface is good and there is also a built-in dictionary feature.

Linguee – Linguee does not allow you to post large blocks of text like DeepL. However, Linguee will give you very accurate translations for single words or phrases, along with context examples.

dict.cc – This Google Translate alternative seems to do a decent job on single-world lookups, but it also feels a bit outdated.

Swisscows Translate – A good translation service supporting many languages.


If you want to translate blocks of text, check out DeepL. If you want in-depth translations for single words or phrases, then Linguee is a good choice.
Google Analytics alternative


For website admins, there are many reasons to use an alternative to Google Analytics. Aside from privacy concerns, there are also faster and more user-friendly alternatives that also respect your visitors’ privacy.

Clicky is a great alternative to Google Analytics that truncates and anonymizes visitor IP addresses by default. It is lightweight, user-friendly, and fully compliant with GDPR regulations, while also being certified by Privacy Shield.

Matomo (formerly Piwik) is an open-source analytics platform that respects the privacy of visitors by anonymizing and truncating visitor IP addresses (if enabled by the website admin). It is also certified to respect user privacy.

Fathom Analytics is an open source alternative to Google Analytics that’s available on Github here. It’s minimal, fast, and lightweight.

AT Internet is a France-based analytics provider that is fully GDPR compliant, with all data stored on French servers, and a good track record going back to 1996.

Many websites host Google Analytics because they run Google Adsense campaigns. Without Google Analytics, tracking performance of these campaigns would be difficult. Nonetheless, there are still better options for privacy.

Google Maps alternative

A map alternative for PCs is OpenStreetMap.

A few Google Maps alternatives for mobile devices include:

OsmAnd is a free and open-source mobile maps app for both Android and iOS (based on OpenStreetMap data).

Maps (F Droid) uses OpenStreetMap data (offline).

Here WeGo provides good mapping solutions for both PCs and mobile devices with their app.

Maps.Me is another option that is free on both Android and iOS, but there is a fair amount of data collection with this alternative, as explained in their privacy policy.
MapHub is also based on OpenStreeMap data and it does not collect locations or user IP addresses.


Note: Waze is not an “alternative” as it is owned by Google.





Google Play Store alternative

Currently the best Google Play Store alternative is to use F-Droid and then go through the Yalp store. As explained on the official site, F-Droid is an installable catalog of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform. After you have installed F-Droid, you can then download the Yalp store APK, which allows you to download apps from the Google Play Store directly as APK files.

See the F-Droid website or the official GitHub page for more info. Other alternatives to the Google Play Store include:

TechSpot – We have an Android section in Downloads full of safe and verified downloads.

Aptoide – An independent marketplace for Android apps.

APKMirror – This is a large library of APK files uploaded by different users (be careful).

Aurora Store – A fork of the Yalp Store.

Google Chrome OS alternative


Want to ditch the Chromebook and Chrome OS? Here are a few alternatives:

Linux – Of course, Linux is arguably the best alternative, being a free, open-source operating system with lots of different flavors. With some adjustments, Linux Ubuntu can be run on Chromebooks.

Tails – Tails is a free, privacy-focused operating system based on Linux that routes all traffic through the Tor network.

QubesOS – Recommended by Snowden, free, and also open source.

Of course, the other two big operating system alternatives are Windows and Apple’s operating system for MacBooks – Mac OS. Windows, particularly Windows 10, is a very bad option for privacy. While slightly better, Apple also collects user data and has partnered with the NSA for surveillance.
Android alternatives

The biggest alternative to Android is iOS from Apple. But we’ll skip over that for reasons already mentioned. Here are a few Android OS alternatives:

LineageOS – A free and open-source operating system for phones and tablets based on Android.


Ubuntu Touch – A mobile version of the Ubuntu operating system.

Plasma Mobile – An open source, Linux-based operating system with active development.

Sailfish OS – Another open source, Linux-based mobile OS.

Replicant – A fully free Android distribution with an emphasis on freedom, privacy, and security.

/e/ – This is another open source project with a focus on privacy and security.

Purism is also working on a privacy-focused mobile phone called the Librem 5. It is in production, but not yet available (estimated Q3 2019).





Google Hangouts alternatives

Here are some alternatives to Google Hangouts:

Wire – A great all-around secure messenger, video, and chat app, but somewhat limited on the number of people who can chat together in a group conversation via voice or video.
Signal – A good secure messenger platform from Open Whisper Systems.

Telegram – A longtime secure messenger app, formerly based in Russia, now in Dubai.

Riot – A privacy-focused encrypted chat service that is also open source.

Google Domains alternative

Google Domains is a domain registration service. Here are a few alternatives:

Namecheap – I like Namecheap because all domain purchases now come with free WhoisGuard protection for life, which protects your contact information from third parties. Namecheap also accepts Bitcoin and offers domain registration, hosting, email, SSL certs, and a variety of other products.

Njalla – Njalla is a privacy-focused domain registration service based in Nevis. They offer hosting options, too, and also accept cryptocurrency payments.

OrangeWebsite – OrangeWebsite offers anonymous domain registration services and also accepts cryptocurrency payments, based in Iceland.

Other Google alternatives

Here more alternatives for various Google products:

Google Forms alternative – JotForm is a free online form builder.

Google Keep alternative – Below are a few different Google Keep alternatives:

Standard Notes is a great alternative for a note-taking service. It is secure, encrypted, and free with apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android (web-based also available).

Joplin is another great option that is open source and works on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.

Zoho Notebook from Zoho, with apps for desktop and mobile devices.

QOwnNotes is an open source file editor with Nextcloud integration.


Google Fonts alternative – Many websites load Google fonts through Google APIs, but that’s not necessary. One alternative to this is to use Font Squirrel, which has a large selection of both Google and non-Google fonts which are free to download and use.


Google Voice alternative – JMP.chat (both free and paid)

G Suite alternative – Zoho is probably the best option

Google Firebase alternative – Kuzzle (free and open source)

Google Blogger alternatives – WordPress, Medium, and Ghost are all good options.
