Everybody wants to help you buy a house

Pointed out by southseacompany: all the major political parties want to help you buy a house and the promises are piling up.

They all love the idea of taking taxpayer money to drive up house prices, the current government even wants to get in on the speculation and help out with a 5-10% shared equity program.

The government also confirmed that, because the program gives it an equity stake in the mortgage, it will share any gains or losses in the value of the home over the life of the loan. Any money the government makes on the program will go back into general revenues.

Was just reading through the Mortimer twitter account, and a lot of properties featured the past 2 months are selling below the 2015 sold prices.

Oracle, if everyone is right about you buying that cardboard house in Surrey a couple years ago, you might be f@&ked. Maybe you can share 16 to a room like you always gloat and make it through the next few years. Good thing there are unlimited immigrants coming in to share your house with you.

Finally this large scale study has proof that Huawei hardware has backdoors and many security issues. KEY FINDINGS Summary Huawei has been accused of maintaining backdoor access to networks, but until now, little evidence has been available to support or refute those claims. Finite State’s automated system analyzed more than 1.5 million unique files embedded within 9,936 firmware images supporting 558 different products within Huawei’s enterprise networking product lines — many of which could be used within the core of 5G networks. Our analysis looked for risks including hard-coded backdoor credentials, unsafe use of cryptographic keys, indicators of insecure software development practices, and the presence of known and 0-day vulnerabilities. The results of the analysis show that Huawei devices quantitatively pose a high risk to their users. In virtually all categories we examined, Huawei devices were found to be less… Read more »

Nice link, thank you. To put it into perspective, here are some CVE “official” numbers about vulnerabilities per product, Huawei does not look that bad: https://www.cvedetails.com/top-50-vendors.php

I would like to see a report that compares apples to apples and covers all major 5G players, including Nokia, Ericsson and Intel. Product-by-product. FiniteState report compares just one Huawei product with Juniper and Arista competitor solutions, and there is no guarantee they did not cherry-pick it. Will have a closer look later and try to find who sponsored this investigation. Will not be surprised if it was one of those big names.

Not that I am defending Huawei, the report sounds pretty scary. My point that I have no idea what kind of situation we have with other providers.

“My point that I have no idea what kind of situation we have with other providers.”

The difference is in those other counties the equipment manufactures are not controlled by the governments of those countries and the governments are not criminal organizations like China. If North Korea or Iran were producing 5G equipment people would have the same concerns.

Although I think it’s a generalization (most governments _have_ regulations for _some_ types of equipment for sure), I do not disagree with that. But we all know that without reading any technical reports, right?

I agree with many comments from here – the report looks very biased:

Exactly. On top of that not all vulnerabilities are equal. Some may not be at all viable to exploit.

But it’s obviously a good thing that people are out there conducting audits as companies have demonstrated time and time again that security isn’t a priority to them, even in the enterprise space.

“Remember that horrible story a couple of years back when a young boy was caught in the crossfire of a gang dispute in East Vancouver? John Daly and I interviewed a guy who literally dodged a bullet that day that had lodged in his vehicle’s headrest.

It was a dramatic interview, immediately followed by an email from a fake account saying: “Lynda, I hear the boy who died was Chinese. Good for you! Thanks to your stirring up hatred of Chinese investment, there’s one fewer Chinese person in Vancouver to worry about!” I tried to reply to the sender but it was a fake email address, so I decided to delete it instead.”

I personally know several DINK couples who own single family detached houses in Vancouver and Burnaby. I have to question why a older couples with no kids and not even a dog would want to own a house with its attendant upkeep and maintenance. Both partners work high paying jobs and with no kids to support they can afford to buy an overpriced house that prevents a family with kids from buying said house when that family would benefit much more from living in a detached house in the city proper. It’s all about greed and FOMO.

UBS puts economist on leave in growing China pig row

Donovan, global chief economist of UBS’s wealth management business since 2016, said on Wednesday that consumer prices in China had risen mainly due to sickness among pigs.

“Does this matter? It matters if you are a Chinese pig. It matters if you like eating pork in China,” Donovan said in comments some interpreted as referring to people, not livestock.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-economy-politics/ubs-puts-economist-on-leave-in-growing-china-pig-row-idUSKCN1TF0C8

you have to keep in mind that chinese is a primitive language. when you hear a chinese person speaking poor english, saying things like “you go now” and “me no like” they are using chinese sentance structure and just replacing chinese words for english words. it sounds like a cave man talking, but there you go. we should all learn more about each other so we can understand each other’s perspective.

Diplomatic tensions ramp up as two Chinese fighter jets reportedly buzz Canadian warship

https://www.citynews1130.com/2019/06/27/report-china-fighters-buzz-canada-warship-in-east-china-sea/

When will Canada finally stand up to this harassment? We can start with these measures:

* Stop all visa applications
* Close all visa offices in china
* Remove all chineeze students from Canada
* Stop all travel from china for chineeze citizens into Canada
* Do not allow any chineeze citizens to buy any property in Canada
* Confiscate any real estate owned by chineeze citizens
* Arrest and deport any non Canadian chineeze using national security concerns
* Ban all chineeze food imports into Canada

and this list could almost be endless.

“We can start with these measures”

Many of these would actually serve the interests of the PRC regime or hurt Canadian businesses and workers. Also some would be unconstitutional (hint: only a few rights are guaranteed only to citizens).

“In order to show how it could stand up to both the U.S. and Canada, China turned to an ancient proverb: killing the chicken to scare the monkey. The idea is quite simple: Faced with a rebellious or unco-operative individual – the monkey – one need only torture and kill a chicken to show how brutal and serious you are. The monkey will fall in line.”

That sums up the barbarians we’re dealing with.

I don’t see it that way. The way I see it is that for China to be a powerful country, they need to develop a dynamic economy that builds companies that Westerners want to buy from. They need to make companies like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Boeing, etc… But instead, they are manufacturing bad will. That’s not going to get in the way of selling teddy bears, bolts and disposal stuff, but it’s a huge barrier to products that require good will. Who wants to buy a Huawei phone right now? Where I agree with you is that I also see this as a turning point for them.

china’s development wasn’t to improve the lives of their citizens. it is a tool to achieve their geopolitical goals of getting taiwan and controlling the south china sea. the big push in development is supposed to put them in a position to achieve that. they just have to keep all the balls in the air until they make their move.

china doesn’t want to be just another developed country part of the global community. they don’t respect any international norms or systems. these are just tools to be used and abused for their geopolitical ambitions.

at the same time the US doesn’t want china to collapse. they want to contain them until their window has closed and their demographics and economic cycles ensure they are never a threat again.
