> The Castro regime dilapidated subsidies from the Soviet Union between 1960 and 1990 equivalent to five Marshall plans, and yet it failed to improve its economic growth or take advantage of these huge transfers to improve productivity. Between 1960 and 1990, Cuba received more than $65 billion from the Soviet Union, not to mention the money it received from other socialist countries.

> Cuba even benefited from a subsidy from the Venezuelan regime—which itself receives billions from China—that covered 70 percent of the country’s consumption. It also receives hundreds of millions from international organizations.

> Despite this, the Nationmaster ranking, which compares the average salary for countries around the world, ranks Cuba last (176th place) in the world, with an average salary of $25.05 per month in 2014.

A Bulgarian MEP is in charge of an initiative called "I won't get hacked" promoted with the hashtags (and in Bulgarian) so far starts as a very promising cinge-fest kind of really like what we expected TBH.
First thing they do is launch cyberneat.e-gov.bg/ (yes over HTTP, yes **ONLY** HTTP), which gives you soem password tips like mixing cases, using special characters, using at least 10 characters etc. and then prompts you to check how strong your password is.

“Pale Moon already set the granularity for the performance timers sufficiently course in Oct 2016 when it became clear that this could be used to perform hardware-timing based attacks and fingerprinting.

Pale Moon also, by design, doesn't allow buffer memory to be shared between threads in , so the »SharedArrayBuffer« attack is not possible.”
