know, learn and discover. learn, document and share knowledge. tiny things that should be normal, but which get more and more complicated in our difficult age. Current reality offers us a drawing that is not often Radiant, But sometimes small positive pearls slip into the electric current, vicious, and uneven of our times and give us hope, hence my intervention of the day. Hoping that your reading is interesting I wish you the best.

Assange discovered his passion for computers as a teenager. At the age of 16, he got his first computer as a gift from his mother. Before long, he developed a talent for hacking into computer systems. His 1991 break-in to the master terminal for Nortel, a telecommunications company, got him in trouble. Assange was charged with more than 30 counts of hacking in Australia, but he got off the hook with only a fine for damages.
Assange continued to pursue a career as a computer programmer and software developer. An intelligent mind, he studied mathematics at the University of Melbourne. He dropped out without finishing his degree, later claiming that he left the university for moral reasons; Assange objected to other students working on computer projects for the military.
In 2006, Assange began work on WikiLeaks, a website intended to collect and share confidential information on an international scale. The site officially launched in 2007 and it was run out of Sweden at the time because of the country’s strong laws protecting a person’s anonymity.
Later that year, WikiLeaks released a U.S. military manual that provided detailed information on the Guantanamo detention center. WikiLeaks also shared emails from then-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin that it received from an anonymous source in September 2008.
Threats and intimidation aimed at prominent human rights defender and Nobel laureate Dr. Denis Mukwege in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) should immediately stop, and he should be afforded full protection, said Human Rights First today.
Human Rights First awarded Mukwege its Human Rights Awards in 2013 for his work with survivors of sexual violence. In recent weeks he and his family have been targeted on social media, and the Congolese surgeon has reportedly received death threats by phone.
“Mukwege is a leading doctor and human rights defender, known across Africa and throughout the world for his selfless defense of the rights of others,” said Human Rights First’s Brian Dooley. “The authorities in the DRC should provide him, his staff, and his family with all necessary protection.”
Mukwege was violently attacked during an assassination attempt in 2012, and for many years his calls for perpetrators of sexual violence to be brought to justice have made him a target. In 2018, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his work to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of armed conflict.
“Death threats against human rights defenders in the DRC, and everywhere, need to be addressed seriously, and Mukwege should immediately be given the protection he needs,” said Dooley.
