    Hull asks to be first UK city to trial universal basic income

    Hull wants to become the first UK city to test a weekly universal basic income for its residents after a cross-party group of councillors formally backed the idea. The proposal would mean every adult would be paid a basic sum – potentially between £50 and £100 a week – regardless of income, and do away with the need for welfare.

    SIM-swap attacks made easy thanks to lax carrier security

    An alarming test carried out by Princeton shows that the five largest US carriers fail to properly protect their customers against so-called SIM-swap attacks. They were able to persuade the carriers to assign phone numbers to new SIMs without successfully answering any of the standard security questions.

For a moment, it’s as if Thunberg were the eye of a hurricane, a pool of resolve at the center of swirling ch...
