A few parents say it’s time to address bullying at the grade school. They say it’s a problem. So is the way it’s handled.

Several moms went to the school board meeting tonight. One spoke at length about the problems her daughter and other students have had with bullying. She wants the school board to examine and change the bullying policy, at least at the grade school level.

At this month’s school board meeting public comments came first. Amy Huskisson started her time with a story her 6 year-old daughter told her about a 9 year-old boy at recess.

A fight against child pornography or control over the citizens?

The matter concerns the bill that is popularly referred to as the ‘Big Brother’ Law’. The latter vests the investigative agencies with the right to block websites, monitor personal emails, SMS, as well as Viber and WhatsApp messages – and all those measures aim to ensure efficient fight against child pornography and terrorism.

Official Chișinău is looking forward to the Venice Commission’s final conclusion on the aforesaid bill.

However, the experts ring the alarm bells, claiming that the bill is nothing but an attempt to impose censorship on the Internet.

A former high school teacher will spend a year on probation but no time behind bars after having an inappropriate relationship with a student.

Anonymous knocks 20pc of dark web offline in campaign against child pornography

They decided instead to keep the service offline as they found evidence that child pornography sites on the service went over the mandated free hosting limit, meaning that Freedom Hosting II was not only encouraging the sites but actually profiting from them as well.

A hacker linked to the group Anonymous has attacked a Dark Web hosting service after discovering that it was responsible for the management of child porn sites.

“Hello, Freedom Hosting II, you have been hacked”.

The hack may have affected up to a fifth of the dark web – sites accessible only using anonymising service “Tor”.

The hacker said that the action was their “first hack ever”, explaining that they “just had the right idea”.
