Commuters on the Moscow metro will be able to pay for their journeys at a glance with the introduction of the world’s most extensive facial recognition system for payments today, despite concerns about the “Orwellian” surveillance tools being deployed in the Russian capital.  The system, named Face Pay, allows users to look into a camera at special entrance turnstiles fitted in the metro’s 241 stations, instead of tapping in with a bank or metro card.

 

Face Pay ... probably the way of the future because humans love the easy way IMO.

WARSAW/BERLIN, (Reuters) - Poland plans to spend over 1.6 billion zlotys ($404 million) on building a wall on its border with Belarus.

 

Yesterday (Thursday) the lower chamber of parliament voted through plans to build the wall. That day 682 people tried illegally to enter Poland — almost six times the figure for the whole of last year. It also passed legislation that activists say aims to legalise the pushing of migrants back across the border, something not permitted by international law.

Wonder what the EU thinks of this stance.

Monsters Inside – what happened to Billy Milligan? 

 

The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan details how he used multiple personality disorder — to be acquitted of a crime by reason of insanity.

 

This new four-episode docuseries tells the story of an accused serial rapist in the 1970s who claimed that his actions were controlled by multiple personalities inside him. Needless to say, reporting about his crimes touched off a legal odyssey — and kept America spellbound. 

 

Another good true crime mystery that keeps you interested on Netflix.

A junior rugby league referee with deviant sexual interests has been jailed for preying on and having sex with multiple teenage girls.  Whiteman had physical contact with six victims, while the rest he exploited online.

Dale Whiteman, 32 from Wollongong, preyed on 22 girls, grooming them and having sex with a number of them over a 15 year period.

He was jailed on Friday for 16 years with a minimum 12 years for his crimes.

“Over a period of 15 years, Dale Whiteman in a persistent and predatory manner exploited 22 young girls for his own sexual gratification and deviant and prurient interests,” District Court of NSW Judge Andrew Haesler said, handing down his sentence.  “His actions harmed many young girls. His actions did, or had the potential to, cause lasting psychological harm to each child victim.

His offending did not stop with his initial arrest but only when he was jailed soon after.”

 

Ugh ... what a horrible man.
