Windscribe VPN

What is WindScribe?

Windscribe is a Canadian VPN provider founded in 2015.

They’re new, but highly respected in different VPN communities like reddit (/vpn/).

Windscribe offers you a very generous 10GB (month) bandwidth for you to test them out. If you tweet them out, you’ll receive another 5GB.

It’s a lot, as many free VPNs don’t give out that much bandwidth and the ones with no data cap tend to be VERY slow. Let’s see how WindScribe handles my 100 Mbps connection: Continue reading

There’s a problem with the way we define inequality

By Bryan Lufkin|

We are failing to look at inequality in the right way, according to researchers who study people’s attitudes to wealth disparity.

Haves and have-nots. The 99%. The income gap. The chasm between rich and poor has never mattered more. It’s estimated that the top 1% of the world’s richest people owns 50% of the planet’s wealth.

Solving this level of inequality is often held up as a ‘grand challenge’ for the world. But is that the right way to look at it? Continue reading

Liu Xiaobo: The man China couldn’t erase


Activist Liu Xiaobo has died after spending eight years in prison.

“There is nothing criminal in anything I have done but I have no complaints.”

So stated Liu Xiaobo in court in 2009, and in the eight long prison years between then and now, he refused to recant his commitment to democracy. No wonder China’s leaders are as afraid of him in death as they were in life. Continue reading

Top 5 Things Every Immigrant Should Know Before Heading to the U.S.| By: Valerie Johnston

Immigrating to the U.S. just became a lot harder for many with President Trump’s newly enacted policies. But that doesn’t mean that many millions of people won’t still give it a shot. Here are the top five things that everyone should know before they immigrate to the U.S.

  1. You’ll have to pay for your visa.

Many immigrants believe that getting married to a U.S. citizen, or meeting some other requirement for U.S. citizenship, means that they will have an unrestricted passage into the country. However, there are still some very high costs associated with getting the visa to enter the country, even if you are married or otherwise eligible for citizenship.

The Dark Town That Built a Giant Mirror

By Linda Geddes|BBCNEWS

The inhabitants of Rjukan in southern Norway have a complex relationship with the Sun. “More than other places I’ve lived, they like to talk about the Sun: when it’s coming back, if it’s a long time since they’ve seen the Sun,” says artist Martin Andersen. “They’re a little obsessed with it.” Possibly, he speculates, it’s because for approximately half the year, you can see the sunlight shining high up on the north wall of the valley: “It is very close, but you can’t touch it,” he says. As autumn wears on, the light moves higher up the wall each day, like a calendar marking off the dates to the winter solstice. And then as January, February and March progress, the sunlight slowly starts to inch its way back down again. Continue reading

The financial gamble of working abroad

By Alina Dizik|

In January last year, Rebecca Self found her salary had dropped by almost 30% pretty much overnight.

It wasn’t from a demotion, cost-cutting or a corporate restructure – Self’s pay packet was slashed by a shift in currency markets, an issue that affects many expats working around the world.

Self is a leadership consultant based in Zurich, Switzerland. An American expat, she gets paid from different countries in different currencies – she’s paid in dollars through a firm in Qatar in the Middle East, and also in euro through a firm she works for in Sweden. She then converts her earnings into Swiss francs. Continue reading
