Will Anyone Be Left at Sirius to Turn the Lights Off? Sirius ‘Open Source’ Manager (Who Doesn’t Use Open Source) Has Left the Building.

With the company decimated, will cops have anything left to salvage?

Mr. Kink has left Sirius

Summary: The above shows that Sirius ‘Open Source’ has lost the person who was most authorised to access and manage systems, not only clients’ but systems of Sirius itself; this means the company has about 3 full-time staff left (when I left in December it pretended to have 15 staff)

Almost 3 Weeks Since Report Filed With UK ‘Action Fraud’ and Still No Sign of Action

They did what? It took pension firms months to confirm this?

Summary: As we’ve expected right from the start, reporting crime (pension fraud) to Action Fraud (UK police) results in little action, no action, or very slow action (they say they aim to respond within 28 days); today we revisit the situation

ABOUT three weeks ago we formalised complaints to Action Fraud, which is like a division of British Police. The pension crime (embezzlement) of Sirius ‘Open Source’ was reported. The evidence was very clear. There are many victims and there are several more fallbacks here, in case the police drags its heels. We’ll spare details about those fallbacks, for strategic reasons. Either way, it is important to show how police in the land of famous monarchs actually deals with white-collar crimes that has many victims.

When you say something is illegal but fail to actually uphold and enforce the law, then it’s just a token or a “formality” (as this new article serves to illustrate). It’s a carte blanche to commit that crime and it rewards those who commit serious crimes against other people, objectively speaking.

Sirius has been trying to pretend to be a US company in recent years, likely for legal reasons (including the “Limited” in the UK). But no matter if it dubs itself SiriUS, SiriHK, SiriA or whatever… the chief is British, the loans are British, and almost all the staff is British. All those involved in the pension fraud — without exception — are British. This is a matter for British authorities, including British police, to investigate.

Remember that we as British taxpayers are entitled to get a good service from British cops as we pay their salaries, they basically work “for us” (or at least they’re supposed to, they’re expected to “serve and protect” the taxpayers). We are still waiting for as little as an E-mail from British police, but so far not even a call or a letter acknowledging they’re on the case or have made some progress. The sad thing is that we’re so cynical that this is what we expected and even told them.

In the next few parts we shall shed light on what various involved/impacted parties have to say about this, including legal facets of this conundrum. This is likely to carry on for several months more and perhaps even years if the Ombudsman gets involved. Inaction from cops and HMRC is a stain on the system as it emboldens the perception that those in power (like ‘Prince’ Andrew) are above the law and the rest of us are defenceless, rendered vulnerable for exploitation.

Stay tuned.

14,024 Deaths in the UK During Springtime, British Media Silent (Despite the Alarming Data)

New: Excess deaths in UK rise

Description, in case Google takes down his videos again:

Excess deaths, dramatic increase, week ending 21 April 2023…

The number of deaths registered in the UK in the week ending 21 April 2023

(Week 16)

Was 14,024

22.1% above the five-year average

2,540 excess deaths,

of these deaths, 615 involved COVID-19

England and Wales

Week 16, 12,420 deaths were registered in England and Wales

538 of these deaths mentioned novel coronavirus (4.3% of all deaths)

Of the 538 deaths involving COVID-19, 66.5% (358 deaths) had this recorded as the underlying cause of death

The number of deaths was above the five-year average

Private homes (29.0% above, 771 excess deaths)

Hospitals (20.2% above, 924 excess deaths)

Care homes (25.3% above, 525 excess deaths)

Other settings (11.7% above, 92 excess deaths)

Could Bradford Hill criteria help?

The larger the association, the more likely that it is causal.

Consistent findings observed by different persons in different places

Lack of alternative explanations

The effect has to occur after the cause

Greater exposure should generally lead to greater incidence of the effect.

A plausible mechanism between cause and effect is helpful

Coherence between epidemiological and laboratory findings increases the likelihood of an effect.

Occasionally it is possible to appeal to experimental evidence

Analogies or similarities between the observed association and any other associations.

Sometimes, reversibility

COVID-19 Crisis Not Over, UK Deaths About 21% Higher Than Before the Pandemic

I CHECKED about 1.5 hours ago to see if the 10 May 2023 ONS numbers were already online. They were indeed, maybe around 9:30AM.

Deaths in week 17 in 2023

What does the latest data tell us? Compare 2019 deaths count:

Deaths in week 17 in 2019

Now watch this year:

The week 17 latest data

Focus on week 17, the latest on record. From 10,059 deaths in 2019 it rose to about 12.2k in the same week of this year, yet WHO tells us pandemic stuff matters no more and it’s time to get back to “normal”. Don’t listen to WHO. Rely on data, not bureaucrats and politicians who masquerade as health experts.

Now Working Even More on the Web Sites

I left my job in December, one month after Techrights had turned 16 (it was known as “BoycottNovell” at first). Yesterday the site turned 16.5 — a fact that I only realised about an hour ago. Here’s “whois“:

BoycottNovell domain in 2023

Summary: Another small (or semi) milestone for us; it’s an opportunity for reflection

The site started when I was 24. I was a student at the time. I had begun writing my thesis months earlier and I didn’t feel eager to find a job in some centralised office. In 2007 I started working from home exclusively and that hasn’t changed since. The working environment evolved and improved over the years. When working in front of a computer it’s important to make things pleasant and last year I moved everything to a dedicated room, formerly the dining room. Here’s what it looks like this morning (minutes ago; I’ve since then added a plant to the beige table on the left, as there’s available space there).

Working 2023

The photo shows the 9 screens, 5 webcams, 4 mice, 3 large speakers (from 1994; they still work), 7 keyboards (two are external), and as of this morning (2 hours ago) there’s a cactus-like pair of plants on the table that I took out yesterday (because it’s getting warmer), the 16.5-year anniversary of All these computers run GNU/Linux and they’re not expensive at all (refurbished, old, low-budget). Each serves its set of purposes. The electric bill is 1.5 pounds per person per day (inclusive of everything, cooking as well) as these machines dim down while AFK and there’s no GPU.

If 16.5 years from now the Web site does not exist it’s likely it’ll have already evolved for whatever comes after the Web, maybe something like Gemini or IPFS. We’re flexible enough to handle change and budget isn’t a problem because we are not a company.

Last year I started experimenting with a standing desk. With two soft carpets on the floor and ample space for weights it’s possible to also exercise a bit while reading. It’s like a form of therapy that is healthy not just for the body but also the mind. I’m stationed near the desk about 15 hours a day, on average.

WHO’s Latest Statement Says More About WHO Than It Says About COVID-19

We’re worse off even by lockdown standards (2020)

Weekly number of deaths in England and Wales from January 2020 to April 2023

COVID-19 is solved; But deaths are off the chart!

IT is exceedingly frustrating to be governed by institutions or ‘public’ organisations funded by pharmaceutical companies (patent licensors) and their shareholders. The conflict of interest is profoundly yet rarely mentioned.

Based on the hard data, or the after-the-fact analysis, COVID-19 has left society far less healthy. In the UK and Ireland, for instance, far more people than one might expect are dying each day. The media doesn’t talk about it (or barely/seldom mentions it), but many critical thinkers have openly expressed concerns about these figures. The causes barely included suicides (they’re less than 5% of these gains); so what is it?

That WHO has become a bit of a COVID minimiser (not denier), helping to shape the narrative for companies whose products barely helped, says a lot about WHO and the UN. Don’t take health advice from these bureaucrats.

Pandemic ‘New Normal’: Sharp Increase in Deaths Across All Age Groups

England and Wales death totals by week:

2019 deaths: England and Wales death totals by week

Further to what I published on Wednesday, here’s a breakdown of increase in deaths by age group, debunking the notion that it is impacting only very old people.

The number on the left is the total deaths for week 16 (latest on record) in 2019, compared to the same week in 2023 (shown on the right below), i.e. last month:

For ages 15-45, 321 compared to 251: 28% increase in fatalities
For ages 45-64, 1478 compared to 1100: 34.4% increase in fatalities
For ages 65-74, 1878 compared to 1446: 30% increase in fatalities

Seems like a national health crisis, but the media hardly talks about it, so let’s pretend it’s not happening.
