How to improve your Facebook Messenger privacy instantly

Privacy is a huge topic these days and will only become more important. Did you know that Facebook is tracking your every activity and shows your friends when you were “last active” on Facebook Messenger? Not only that, but by default, Facebook Messenger will show all of your contacts when you are online using the app. Unfortunately, that feature happens to be a little inaccurate at times. So your Family and Friends on your contacts might be getting the impression you are out and about and/or online, while you are not.

There are tons of disadvantages to this kind of privacy issue, some of them can be lessened by taking action. In order to learn how to hide your online state and keep your “last active” time from appearing to your contact list.

This trick is rather counter-intuitive, but it works.

Open up the Facebook Messenger App, go to the “People” tab and tap “Active” at the very top.
Now you’ll see a list of all of your active Facebook friends.
Disable the toggle button next to your name.

You won’t be able to see who is online right now, but no one will be able to see whether you are online. If you tap a contact in the messenger list, however, you can see whether they are online right now. And their “last active” timestamp. Your “last active” time should not show up in anyone’s list anymore.

How important is on line privacy to you or your Business … Comment below, thanks!!

MPs vote ‘that animals cannot feel pain or emotions’ into Brexit bill

There can only be one reason to deny animal sentient status, and that is to exploit them

MP Caroline Lucas had submitted an amendment clause (NC30) to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, which sought to transfer the EU Protocol on animal sentience set out in Article 13 of Title II of the Lisbon Treaty into UK law, so animals continue to be recognised as sentient beings under domestic law.

At the end of an eight-hour parliamentary debate, the new clause was rejected, with an 18 majority for the Government – 313 against, 295 in favour.

While most EU law relating to animals will be automatically brought over into UK law, this will not apply to the recognition of sentience.  Under EU law, animals are currently recognised as being capable of feeling pain and emotion. But MPs have this week voted to drop the inclusion of animal sentience into the Withdrawal Bill.

Eighty per cent of current animal welfare legislation comes from the EU, but after March 2019, European law will no longer apply in the UK.

Richard Bowler posted this photo of a fox in a heartfelt plea to his Facebook audience:

So MP’s have voted and in their wisdom, animals can no longer feel pain or emotions. It really beggars belief that in this day and age, this shower of a government no longer recognises animals as sentient beings. None of them could have had a pet dog, greet them when they come home. But it’s not just domestic animals that show love and affection. The photograph shows Rosie and how she greets me, every time I visit her. Are you telling me there’s no emotion there, what you can’t see is the wagging tail and the squeals of excitement as well. All three foxes I care for have built a bond with Maddy our terrier, she is greeted in exactly the same way. It’s not hard to imagine that if bonds like this can be formed inter species, that the same bonds can be formed between a dog fox and a vixen and their cubs. In fact so called pest controllers use this to their advantage, after shooting the vixen they will often wait, knowing the dog fox will show up, to mourn if you like. Anyone who’s seen elephant documentaries when families visit the bones of their dead can not fail to see that there are emotions going on there. Science is showing more and more animal intelligence and emotions and yet our government has yet again ignored it. There can only be one reason to deny animal sentient status, and that is to exploit them.…/MPs-vote-to-reject-inclusion-of…
Heres a link to an article about it.


One of the arguments put forward by the Government during the debate was that animal sentience is covered by the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

The RSPCA, however, said this is not the case. The term sentience or sentient being doesn’t appear once in that Act, and, the animal welfare charity said, doesn’t cover all animals. RSPCA Head of Public Affairs David Bowles said it is a “truly backward step” for animal welfare.

“It’s shocking that MPs have given the thumbs down to incorporating animal sentience into post-Brexit UK law,”

Nick Palmer, head of policy at Compassion in World Farming, said:

“How can the UK be seen as a leader in animal welfare when the repeal bill fails to guarantee that animals will continue to be regarded as sentient beings?

“We urge the Government to reintroduce the commitment into the Bill.”

It’s rare for cancers to start in the vagina yet in 2014 were 110 deaths

It’s rare for cancers to start in the vagina. They usually start in the cervix or womb, and grow into the vagina. There are different types of vaginal cancer. This information is about squamous cell cancer and adenocarcinoma of the vagina that are treated in the same way.

The cause of vaginal cancer isn’t known. But factors including increasing age, radiotherapy to the pelvis, and exposure to HPV or a drug called Diethylstilbestrol (DES) can increase your risk of developing it.

Symptoms of vaginal cancer include:
blood-stained vaginal discharge
bleeding after the menopause, between periods or after sex
pain when passing urine, needing to pass urine often or blood in the urine
pain in the pelvic area
constipation or feeling you need to pass a bowel motion even though you just have (tenesmus)
swollen legs.

Vaginal cancer is diagnosed with tests including:
Internal pelvic examination, liquid based cytology, a colonoscopy or a biopsy. If the tests show cancer, you may have further tests to see if it has begun to spread.

Radiotherapy and surgery are common treatments for vaginal cancer. Chemotherapy can also be given to treat vaginal cancer that has spread. Some women have chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Treatment for vaginal cancer may affect your fertility (ability to have children).

You may have many different emotions, including anger, resentment, guilt, anxiety and fear. These are all normal reactions and are part of the process many people go through in trying to come to terms with their condition.Everyone has their own way of coping with difficult situations. Some people find it helpful to talk to family or friends, while others prefer to seek help from people outside their situation. Some people prefer to keep their feelings to themselves. There is no right or wrong way to cope, but help is there if you need it. Macmillian cancer support specialists can give you information about counselling in your area.
