What’s wrong with FaceApp, the latest creepy photo app for your face
The Washington Post
Published: 7:00pm, 28 Apr, 2017 scmp.com
“..And what of privacy? Whenever you’re thinking about installing a viral app like FaceApp, privacy should be a concern. These apps are fun, but by installing them you’re usually agreeing to give a third party some degree of information about you in exchange for that fun. And there’s something about apps like FaceApp that take, analyse and mess with photos of your face that cooks up a healthy paranoia…
The question of how unusual that is for an app like this, though, is one for another day…”
Is the ‘FaceApp Challenge’ Safe?

Experts say just be smart about downloading apps, as usual.
Depending on which country you’re in, the term “privacy” can flex. This is where we can note that FaceApp is created by Wireless Lab, a company based in St. Petersberg, Russia.
“We value privacy here in the U.S.,” Francen said. “Many view privacy as a right not a privilege and the fact that Russia and the U.S. are in a cyber war right now, all these other things going on– that’s the collateral damage of all this.”
Meaning– the developers behind FaceApp may not be malicious at all. They could be developers who just came up with a cool app with cool features. It’s just that in Russia, the privacy game they play might be according to a different set of rules we have here in the U.S…”

Everyone is using FaceApp, but here are some privacy concerns you should be aware of
Psychologist Offers Advice On Dealing With ‘Holiday Blues’ December 24, 2015 7:08 PM By Angela Davis minnesota.cbslocal.com
“…Bemel is a psychologist at Allina’s West St. Paul Clinic. She says spending too much time on social media, checking out other people’s lives, can be harmful.
“What we see out there in social media is only a snippet of what is really going on in someone else’s life. So social media leads us to compare what we have with what others have,” Bemel said. “The fact is whatever we have, most people want more…”

CNN FAKE REPORTING ON GREEN SCREEN, from youtube.com
CNN’s Anderson Cooper caught faking interview in front of blue screen background Sunday, February 17, 2013 by: J. D. Heyes naturalnews.com
“.The next scenes feature backstage shots of the Saudi Arabia “set” – an entire news crew, complete with fake props.
Turns out Jaco, Rochelle and their crew aren’t in Saudi Arabia at all. They are on a sound set near the CNN headquarters in Atlanta, a faked broadcast that the cable news channel eventually had to quietly admit.
The video contains clips of Jaco and crew clowning around. Jaco holds up a mock SCUD missile with a rag attached to its tail that acts as a rocket “plume.” The CNN reporter goes on to joke about how “they always call an ‘all clear'” when he orders his “burger and fries.” He clowns around about other things as well.
Fast-forward to today. CNN is up to its old tricks, this time with Anderson Cooper acting as the “live, on-the-scene” reporter who is, quite obviously, somewhere else other than where he says he is.

Debunked: Sandy Hook: Anderson Cooper Green Screen Disappearing Nose with Pozner
by Mick West, Feb 7, 2013 metabunk.org
“..The more video is compressed, the more blocks of the image are transmitted marked “unchanged”. In this video Cooper leans forward, and his nose enters a block that’s marked as “unchanged”. It takes a few frames before the video compression detects this, and marks it as “changed”, and then start to transmit the block. In the image above, it would be like the running man running into the house. Until the compression software detected this it would look like he went behind the house for a fraction of a second. ..”

Although one of the hostage’s jumpsuits flutters in a breeze, Khan said she believes a fan caused the movement and noted that wind in the desert would be noisy and affect the sound quality of the statements being made by the knife-wielding man. It would also kick up dust, and none seems apparent, she said.
Experts poring over the slickly-produced videos believe they were made in an area south of Raqqa in northern Syria, the self-declared capital of the Islamic State group. The killings of the five other hostages took place between August and November. The U.S.-led coalition began targeting IS militants in Syria in mid-September, and has gradually intensified its aerial bombardment of suspected IS infrastructure in both Syria and Iraq.
The ‘Fake’ Beheading Videos May Not be What You Think, from theantimedia.org
“..(TheAntiMedia) This is a controversial subject for anyone who’s willing to discuss the topic. The two most prevalent theories are both horrifying. Either an insurgent group in the Middle East is capturing and beheading civilians, or an allied intelligence agency staged the beheadings in order to gain support for a war.
Frequent readers that are aware of my personal belief that the US is attempting to manufacture consent for a full-scale Syrian war will probably be surprised by my conclusion. Understand that it is not even debatable whether the US is waging a full-scale propaganda war to obtain the support necessary to oust Assad. I believe this with the same intensity that I believe the sky is blue. It isn’t theory; it’s fact. However, that does not mean that every piece of propaganda used was independently created by western intelligence.
Leaked Video Shows Making of Islamic State “Execution” in Studio — via CyberBerkut Hack of Sen. McCain Staffer

“..British forensic experts concluded that the James Foley video was likely staged using “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques.”
Terrorism research expert Veryan Khan said the video of Japanese hostages Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa looks like it was completed in an indoor studio with a false backdrop, pointing to the light source on the men that appears to be coming from two different directions — as opposed to one bright sun.
Hollywood horror film director Mary Lambert said of the Islamic State video showing the killing of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians on a Libyan beach, that “in the opening shot all the figures might be animated. They never had more than six men on the beach … The close-ups of jihadists on the beach are most likely green screen … The sea turning red is obviously FX.”
How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans …wired.com
“…In just four days, Mendez, Chambers, and Sidell created a fake Hollywood production company. They designed business cards and concocted identities for the six members of the location-scouting party, including all their former credits. The production company’s offices would be set up in a suite at Sunset Gower Studios on what was formerly the Columbia lot, in a space vacated by Michael Douglas after he finished The China Syndrome…”
