Computer Hackers Meet For Annual Congress

You can now get paid to ‘stalk’ people on social media. In the quirky modern sense. Not actual legitimate stalking. That’s illegal. 

As a man of honour and respect, I have little time for snooping on other people’s cyber presence, and even less inclination. That’s just me, though.

Judging by the fact you can now be employed to do so, however, proves the fad is more real than I’d like to think.

Andy Bartram, from Maidstone, Kent, has launched his own investigation agency to funnel out all the fake profiles and trolls so as to keep normal singletons safe.

The 46-year-old set up Vet Your Date earlier this month and charges £20 a pop for each pre-date search of your Tinder or Bumble match.

He told Kent Live:

I have done those kinds of searches as an intelligence analyst and while I was watching Catfish on MTV I thought it could potentially be a good idea to do something similar here.

Anybody could do it, but in the same way if you need your boiler fixed, you would get a professional in because of safety.

I have spent a number of years as a criminal intelligence analyst and I have had police training.

That gives me the power to interrogate web pages to get results back.

Andy, a father of one, is confident of his ‘stalking’ skills he learnt with the police and is eager to put it to good use.

He added:

Although I set it up as a vetting thing for dating it could also be used for other purposes. Online dating is such a massive industry these days.

I have got lots of friends who use it quite a lot and there are numerous different apps people use.

It is all swipe right and swipe left.

It comes just after Catfish host Max Joseph announced last night (August 8) he would be leaving the popular MTV show which made him famous.

He told Twitter:

Hey guys, the time has come, sadly, for me to move on from Catfish.

Working on this show for the last seven years has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. I’ve learned a lot about myself, my country and human nature in general.

For a while now I have been straddling two careers as TV host and filmmaker and, while this level of busy-ness is a dream come true, my life can no longer sustain it. With Catfish still going strong after 7 seasons, 115 episodes, 31 specials and showing no sign of slowing down, I feel it is finally the time for me to make my exit.

It really was a f****** blast and I am eternally grateful for every second of it.

Reckon you’ve got what it takes to replace Max, for on a much smaller and cheaper scale, to protect Kent citizens from online wrong-un’s? Check out their Facebook page to see what’s what.

Good luck and keep doing you, Andy.

Ricky Gervais wants to host the OscarsPA

Ricky Gervais has fired shots at the Oscars after Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting duties after homophobic tweets from 2011 emerged yesterday.

The American comedian set social media into a spin with such comments as: ‘If I can prevent my son from being gay, I will.’

One from 2011 reads: ‘Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say in my voice “stop that’s gay”‘.

It was deleted between Wednesday and Thursday, according to BuzzFeed.

Hart subsequently stood down from the gig, saying he’d addressed his comments previously and wouldn’t apologise for something he has already acknowledged historically. He claimed the Academy presented an ultimatum: pass or apologise and remain as presenter.

In the aftermath of this, Gervais has come out in defence of Hart, and all those who hate ‘offence culture’.

He wrote in a tweet:

Dear c*nts in charge of The Oscars, let me host your show, and I promise I won’t offend anyone. Not even Mel Gibson, who you nominated last year.

The Office co-creator was alluding to Gibson’s controversial anti-semitic comments he made in 2006.

The Academy has yet to comment on the furore or Gervais’ semi-serious offer.

It was Benjamin Lee, an editor at The Guardian, who first pointed out Hart’s forgotten tweets, writing ‘I wonder when Kevin Hart is gonna start deleting all his old tweets.’

Other deleted items include, ‘U should ask the question like this, how many “gay: men sweat when they wear dress shirts because real men don’t lmao p.s fag’ and another criticises a fellow Twitter user for looking like a ‘gay bill board for AIDS.’

Adam B. Vary, a reporter for BuzzFeed, went on to search Hart’s Twitter handle with homophobic terms. What he found was understandably problematic.

He wrote:

I did a search for every time Kevin Hart tweeted “fag,” “homo,” or “gay,”It was… a lot. And he seems to have basically stopped tweeting those words after 2011 – i.e. the year his first stand-up movie became a hit.

The post included a GIF of Adam scrolling down the results he found.

One commenter defended Hart’s old tweets, saying:

Is it possible that he learned, even at a late stage in life, that those terms are cruel and hurtful in a way he hadn’t previously comprehended? Is it possible for a person to change? Even my gay brother used slurs wen he was younger, until he learned better?

Another said:

Blatant homophobia? Where? Are jokes not allowed in society? Should we start legally controlling language so peoples feelings are never hurt? That’s a slippery slope no one wants to go down.

One vented, however: 

How is it possible that the Academy isn’t making absolutely sure of this kinda stuff… ya know what, that’s on them! They should have to keep Kevin now and rude out the wave of backlash. Then maybe they won’t do it again.

A fourth added:

Because he’s a famous actor/comedian, he will never get banned. He has also had domestic violence accusations from his ex wife so not who the Oscars should be picking to host the show.

He did a good job of the Golden Globes, Gervais. Might be worth getting him in for the Oscars, tbh.

Winter is coming. And when I say ‘winter’ I mean the season 8 Game Of Thrones teaser trailer. And when I say ‘coming’ I mean it’s here.

That’s right, our first glimpse has finally arrived and it’s pretty sick.

HBO unveiled the teaser at the Sao Paulo Comic Con earlier today (December 6) and it’s more than enough to keep us going until the big day.

Check it out right here:

The whole finale has been shrouded in secrecy. The cast themselves only received the scripts a couple of days before filming.

As for the shoot itself, well it’s been extensive to say the least. Which is what you want really. The more prep the better.

Last April a crew member revealed that Game of Thrones had wrapped 55 night shoots while filming a battle.

Media publications around the world ran stories saying the final season’s battle took twice as long as the 25-day shoot for season six’s climactic Battle of the Bastards. This wildly understated what really happened. The 55 nights were only for the battle’s outdoor scenes at the Winterfell set.

‘It’s brutal,’ Peter Dinklage said of the final battle, as per Entertainment Weekly. ‘It makes the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park.’

Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the show, suggested last week the finale will split fans down the middle. She revealed her own reaction after reading the script for the last episode.

She said:

[There were] a lot of tears. I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying – I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines – to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us.

As for the fan reaction, she added:

Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans. I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon, I think.

I think it will be really interesting to see people’s reactions, but for me reading the script it was just like heartbreaking to read at the very final page of the script it just says, ‘End of Game of Thrones’. That was really emotional.

Sophie’s character Sansa has, alongside Daenerys (played by Emilia Clarke), one of the most dramatic character arcs throughout the programme. Starting off as a young and naive little girl, she slowly comes into her own, becoming a strong and powerful woman by the end of season seven in which she is finally reunited with her ‘brother’ Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington.

We can’t f***ing wait. Bring it on, baby!
