Shhhh….how to communicate privately on your phone with WhatsApp

How do you communicate more privately when you know the revolution will not be televised? When we were in China for a month our main form of communication was WhatApp. It allowed us to talk to family, business partners, writers, researchers and friends over Wifi securely and free.

Now this popular phone APP (WhatsApp) has made big news when they announced that they were providing end-to-end encryption for all of their one billion plus members.

This is super dope for people who like privacy like us over at Nation19 Magazine. The best part about this new feature is that WhatsApp users don’t have to do anything in order to take advantage of this new feature. 

The first setting that you should enable, therefore, is the one that notifies you if a WhatsApp friend changes their device.

Why would you care? Well, because if someone removes the SIM card from your friend’s phone and uses it in another device, they could impersonate your friend on WhatsApp. Enabling a setting in WhatsApp will give you notice that you may be communicating with a fake imposter.

Here is what you do.
Go to the “Settings” icon at the bottom right of your WhatsApp screen, open up the Account settings area, and turn on the “Show Security Notifications” setting.

whatsapp-settings-1

Hold on potna…you not finished yet. lol

The next time you are face-to-face with your WhatsApp friend, and you want to increase your WhatsApp security even more, here are the simple steps to do so.

First, make sure that WhatsApp has access to your camera. You may have already allowed this when you installed WhatsApp, but if you did not, it is an easy setting in your Applications area of your phone.

Next, open a conversation with your friend in WhatsApp and then select the person’s name at the top of the conversation. This will open the contact window for that person. Near the bottom of that screen you will see a setting for Encryption.

whatsapp-settings-2

Tap on the encryption field, and you will be presented with a screen that displays a QR code as well as a 60-digit decimal code that represents the contents of that QR code.

whatsapp-tomato-plant

At the bottom of the QR code screen, there is a link that will enable you to scan your friend’s code, and they can do the same for your code. This is why you need to allow camera access in WhatsApp, even if only temporarily.

That is all there is to it. Now, when you communicate with your friend, you can be more confident that they are who they say they are – although, of course, it’s always possible that the person you are speaking to has failed to keep a close eye on their smartphone or has failed to set a strong passcode.

In our view, you should tighten security like this with as many of your WhatsApp friends as possible.

WhatsApp and WeChat (China) are both great app to communicate with end-to-end encryption for all communications to so many people. For those of us who wish to have authenticity when communicating, WhatsApp has gone that extra step to ensure that as well.

Thats whats sup…oops we meant…thats WhatsApp!

Actual facts about Police violence against black people in 2015.

In 2015 the actual facts about the ongoing killings of unarmed black people by police in the US is more than alarming. So many lives lost. We get a ton of mail from people telling us that the police are just doing their job in high crime areas but in the facts below its the data proves otherwise.

Click on the red keys on the interactive map to view more info on a particular city.

  • In 2014, 1 in 3 U.S. police killings happened in the 100 largest cities.
  • Black people were 21% of the population and 40% of people killed by police in these cities.
  • Most unarmed people killed by police in major U.S. cities were black (56%). Fewer than 1 in 5 (19%) were white.
  • An unarmed black person living in these cities was 6x more likely than an unarmed white person to be killed by police. An unarmed black person was almost as likely as an armed white person to be killed by police.
  • The Police Homicide rate for black men in 17 cities is higher than the U.S. homicide rate. Black men in these cities have a higher chance of being killed by police than the average American has of being killed by anyone.

Blasting Through E3 2015 with Nation19!

E3 2015 was full of excitement from day one June 15th, until the last hour today June 18th. If you don’t know what E3 is, it is the biggest convention of video games on the planet. There are others, like Tokyo Game Show and Pax, but what makes E3 the biggest is that it is primarily the place where million to billion dollar deals go down between all of the major gaming companies. It’s not open to the public basically for that reason. Game developers, publishers and investors all gather to show off their latest works, ideas and investment plans. This year was no exception and we’re here to bring you a little run through of what we saw during our time there.Blasting Through E3_Nation19_PS

First off, this show was full energy! All three of the major console companies (Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft) came with fire! Nintendo had Starfox Zero which was literally for some people like a dream come true. There has not been an installment in the Starfox series since the days of Gamecube, and since the days of the N64 for the flight sim style shooter genre of Starfox games. Nintendo’s 3DS was full of surprises with a full array of new titles coming like a new Fire Emblem game and a game called Yokai Watch, an insanely popular role playing game straight from Japan that has sold upwards of 10 million copies there and will be making its first appearance stateside this year. Microsoft brought their guns out literally with new Halo and Gears of Wars titles, and their smooth cars came breezing through with their latest Forza installment as well. Microsoft also showcased briefly a game developed by the original Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune called Recore. ( Keiji Inafune is an OG).  Sony blew threw the gates with The Last Guardian, a highly anticipated sequel to the games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, it overwhelmed some people. As did the announcement that a remake of Final Fantasy 7 is in the works. I personally know two people who cried at this announcement, its that big! For the fighters, Street Fighter 5 was there playable, and it’s the business! Hadouken! Sonic Boom! (Whatchu know about that!) Street Fighter 5 will be an exclusive Playstation 4 title, releasing Spring next year.Blasting Through E3_Nation19_Xbox

There were also many third party developers and other electronic developers in attendance. The new Rockband 4 was in full swing as was the new Guitar Hero. Both games are ready to get the party started, with Guitar Hero showcasing a new guitar utilizing 6 buttons, 3 on top of 3, making the strumming of your gaming guitar a little more realistic in gaming terms. Nyko had brand new hard drive solutions for the gamers who download mass games from their respective favorite companies’ online stores. There was even a company who had a tailgate-party style full speaker and TV solution that got the party started anywhere your truck’s tailgate can be opened.

Overall the show was a wakeup call and a refreshment to all who were involved. Basically it showed that even in the state that the economy is in and is headed in, billions of dollars can be circulated if you have the right ideas and can execute those ideas in ways that the masses can enjoy themselves. For many, that’s what videogames are all about. They are a quick escape from the everyday life into a different world, a fun filled challenge between good friends, or maybe even the bridge that connects two soul mates haha! As long as people can enjoy themselves, there is money to be made in the video game industry. Do you have any new video game ideas? Are they fun? Are they really fun,or do you lowkey think they are whack? Let us know!

They lie, they spy, they scare…and most likely they are watching you read this article? (NSA)

Although today marks the day that the US government (NSA) will supposedly stop collecting telephone metadata on millions of Americans, we think its all a big trick.  Most US citizens didn’t know the government was illegally spying on them by and using fear to take your rights until former NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked classified documents and fled the US in 2013. Ironically spying on its citizens is the same tactics that the USA accuses unfavorable countries such as Iran and North Korea of doing.


A FEW FACTS: (from leaked classified documents we now know that)

The National Security Agency (NSA) collects every call made in the US, the time of the call, the duration of the call, and the number called EVERY DAY!
They track your credit card payments.
They collect and store 200 million text messages a day!
They can even access smartphone app data.
They can decrypt private phone conversations.
They monitor all your social networks…ALL.
They collect data from online gaming.
They can even hack into computers that are OFFLINE!
They convert your phone call conversations into searchable text.
The NSA can brand you as a terrorist based on a Facebook post.
NSA spies more on Americans than on other countries.
They are more powerful than the FBI and the CIA combined.
They create digital viruses and Malware applications and some have been placed in the Google app store.
They use key words such as Allah to start surveilling your conversations.


Congresswoman talks about NSA and gets interrupted by a diversion…unbelievable.


“There are vast programs of both domestic and international spying that the world will be shocked to learn about, that the NSA is engaged in with no democratic accountability.” – Glenn Greenwald


Excerpts Hon. Minister Farrakhan National Representative of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and The Nation of Islam discussing Edward Snowden and the NSA’s classified leaked documents and surveillance program.


According to a recent study, the majority of Americans believe that preserving the rights of US citizens is more important than preventing terrorist attacks. Since the NSA revelations, Americans have become more opposed to government surveillance that infringes on civil liberties.


In 1995 the Atalanta Hip Hop group Goodie Mob released a song called Cell Therapy.
This song was kinda prophetic. Peep.


Lyrics
“Who’s that peeking in my window….POW! Nobody now!
Me and my family moved in our apartment complex
A gate with the serial code was put up next
The claim that this community is so drug free
But it don’t look that way to me cause I can see
The young bloods hanging out at the sto 24/7
Junkies looking, for a hit of the blow, it’s powerful
Oh you know what else they tryin to do
Make a curfew especially for me and you the
Traces of the new world order
Time is getting shorter if we don’t get prepared
People it’s gone be a slaughter
My mind won’t allow me to not be curious
My folk don’t understand so they don’t take it serious

But every now and then, I wonder
If the gate was put up to keep crime out or to
Keep our ass in.”

AirAsia jet missing to Singapore; flight started in the Muslim country of Indonesia

Flight QZ 8501 leaving from Indonesia (the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation) to Singapore lost contact with air traffic control at 7:24 a.m. Sunday (7:24 p.m. Saturday ET), AirAsia said

“At the present time we unfortunately have no further information regarding the status of the passengers and crew members on board, but we will keep all parties informed as more information becomes available,” 

The plane took off with 155 (total number not confirmed) passengers and crew on board, the news agency Reuters reported, citing Indonesian transport officials.

The flight, an Airbus A320-200, was on its way from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore, according to the airline’s website.

The plane left Juanda International Airport at 5:27 a.m. Sunday (5:27 p.m. Saturday ET) and was due to arrive in Singapore at 8:37 a.m. Sunday (7:37 p.m. ET), according to the website.

AirAsia is a Malaysia-based airline that is popular in the region as a budget carrier. It has about 100 destinations, with subsidiaries in several Asian countries.

The loss of contact with the AirAsia plane comes nearly 10 months after the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which dropped off radar over Southeast Asia on March 8. Which has a long list of mysterious incidents surrounding it.

Searchers are yet to find any debris from Flight 370, which officials believe crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.

If you get caught filming police brutality in Chicago you are going to jail! More cities and states to follow.

An amendment to a Senate bill in Chicago (actually the whole state of Illinois) has been passed to ensure that recording police officers and government officials is now a felony. This law would have made the Rodney King video and Eric Garner videos illegal.

The US Department of Justice reports that an average of 400-500 innocent civilians are murdered by police every year.

The Amendment to Senate Bill 1342 was stealthily introduced on the back of an unrelated piece of legislation last week. It essentially reestablishes a completely unconstitutional eavesdropping law that was previously overturned by The Supreme Court in March for being too draconian.

The amendment has stripped away safeguards to free speech rights from the original legislation and instituted a blanket ban on recording officials in public. It was passed by both the Illinois House and the Senate, with huge majorities, within two days of its introduction.

A post at watchdog website IllinoisPolicy.org notes that the bill is designed to prevent people from documenting interactions with cops on their cell phones by making it a class 3 felony to “eavesdrop” on city and state officials including police officers, police, an attorney general, an assistant attorney general, a state’s attorney, an assistant state’s attorney or a judge.

The new amendment legislates its way around the ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ standard in law by refraining from defining it, and merely states that recording any “oral communication between 2 or more persons” is now illegal.

A class 3 felony is punishable by a prison sentence of two to four years. The bill also outlines that it is now a class 4 felony to record a private citizen in such circumstances. The crime is punishable by one to three years in prison.

nation19_apdta_750x497_mykindoftown

The vaguely worded legislation states:

(a) Eavesdropping, for a first offense, is a Class 4 felony (from Ch. 38, par. 14-4) and, for a second or subsequent offense, is a Class 3 felony.

(b) The eavesdropping of an oral conversation or an electronic communication of any
law enforcement officer, State’s Attorney, Assistant State’s Attorney, the Attorney General, Assistant Attorney General, or a judge, while in the performance of his or her official duties, if not authorized by this Article or proper court order, is a Class 3 felony, and for a second or subsequent offenses, is a Class 2 felony

Jacob Huebert, Senior Attorney at Liberty Justice Center, notes “There’s only one apparent reason for imposing a higher penalty on people who record police in particular: to make people especially afraid to record police.”

Thoughts are Things: A look at the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto and the food we eat.

The magical aroma in my kitchen daily is no joke. Put good vibrations and love into all the meals (food) that you prepare for both yourself and your loved ones. Never prepare nor eat food when you are angry or upset. Food absorbs your energy and frequency. Only put love, positive vibrations and healing energy into your meals. Beware and mindful of who’s food and cooking you eat as well, as their energy is transferred into the food they prepare. My grandmother used to say, ‘You can’t eat everybody’s cooking’. This always stayed with me as deep truth. Our elder’s may have sounded a bit funny or even superstitious to us at times, but they hold much ancient wisdom passed down through the generations. May we continue to carry, honor, share and hold ancient and scared wisdom dear and near to our hearts. Research has shown that the power and affect of the spoken word over food and water is real and not just some superstition. Dr. Masaru Emoto’s is a pioneer in this area of research. For more information on his profound work, experiments and popular research cases, browse and google Dr. Masaru Emoto. You can check out the ‘Masaru Rice Experiment Video’ on Youtube. Dr. Emoto’s research is also featured in the film ‘What The Bleep Do We Know’. Home cooked meals are pure magic and medicine for the mind, body and soul when done with love, pure intentions and positive vibrations infused in them! A great movie that truly embodies this in it’s story line is the movie ‘Like Water For Chocolate’. Good healthy food and positive vibrations to all! [Lalah LovebBliss]

The American Parasite – 250 Million Americans Infected
A parasite that uses your body as its personal feeding ground, taking over first your stomach, then your entire G.I. tract, forcing you to crave the foods it wants…while slowly destroying your body from the inside out. Governments are finally admitting that this is real. Measures have been proposed in New York and the country of Mexico to try and stop it.

Candida is a genus of yeasts and is currently the most common cause of fungal infections worldwide.Many species are harmless commensals or endosymbionts of hosts including humans; however, when mucosal barriers are disrupted or the immune system is compromised they can invade and cause disease. Candida albicans is currently the most commonly isolated species, and can cause infections (candidiasis or thrush) in humans and other animals. In winemaking, some species of Candida can potentially spoil wines.

Many species are found in gut flora, including C. albicans in mammalian hosts, whereas others live as endosymbionts in insect hosts.

Systemic infections of the bloodstream and major organs (candidemia or invasive candidiasis), particularly in immunocompromised patients, affect over 90,000 people a year in the U.S

The DNA of several Candida species have been sequenced.
Antibiotics promote yeast infections, including gastrointestinal Candida overgrowth, and penetration of the GI mucosa.While women are more susceptible to genital yeast infections, men can also be infected. Certain factors, such as prolonged antibiotic use, increase the risk for both men and women. People with diabetes or impaired immune systems, such as those with HIV, are more susceptible to yeast infections.

Some practitioners of alternative medicine say that Candida overgrowth (candidemia) can cause many health problems, including fatigue, headache, poor memory and weight gain, but most medical doctors consider that there is little evidence to support this and that a yeast problem should not be diagnosed without definite clinical signs of an infection.

The Super Conductor Master Crystal: Quartz

Clear Quartz Master crystal superman's secret source of power

Crystal quartz is the Master Healer stone. It is an excellent all purpose healer stone. It is said to amplify healing energy and is used to perform diagnostic healing. It has been used historically to detect food poison. It is known to draw out pain. This powerful stone is used in crystal healing to strengthen all body systems.

I remember as a child watching the movie Superman 2 and was totally intrigued by the scene where he was telling Lois Lane that the crystal called out to him. I said to myself, “crystals talk?” To my surprise I found this to be very true much later in life.

Being the most powerful healing stone and energy amplifier, it brings clarity, cleans and enhances the organs and acts as a deep soul cleanser. It can raise energy to a higher level and keep things positive. When used properly, you can tune into the earth’s frequencies.

“One reason why clear quartz is considered a crystal is the great potential great energy potential of quartz. There is probably no other stone that has the many uses by humanity as quartz. Depending on the form of energy, quartz crystal can act as a conductor, semi conductor, superconductor, or resonator of that energy; this is why quartz technology is considered the premier tool in emerging spiritual technology of the next millennium.

A super conductor is any material that can transmit energy without offering resistance or impedance to the energy flow. The material must also be able to maintain stability and not to break down while transmitting the energy.” ~Rocks of Ages/Ras Ben

“The quartz crystal is one of the most energetic and fast moving stones that activates the brain to think and to remember that which we have forgotten.” Mother Tynetta Muhammad
