Facebook reveals bug exposed
6.8 million users´ photos

CNN Business, by Donie O´Sullivan

Original Article

Posted By:kono, 12/14/2018 5:58:04 PM

New York - Facebook announced on Friday that the social network had exposed the private photos of millions of users without their permission. The company said a bug recently allowed third-party app developers to access photos people may not have shared publicly. Facebook believes as many as 6.8 million users could be affected. The Irish Data Protection Commission, the body that oversees Facebook´s compliance with European regulations, said on Friday that it had launched a "statutory inquiry" into Facebook as a result of multiple breaches the company had informed them about this year.

Comments:
What kind of bug would that be -- software or morality? For a company whose very business is the sharing of users´ personal info, to call this a bug is more of a stretch than if VW were to claim their emissions-test-defeating feature was a design flaw (when it was specifically designed to cheat the test).

Isn´t that a violation of the user agreement? You know, that endless stream of legalese where you have to agree or the app doesn´t work?

Lawsuit? Anyone?

Yeah sure, a bug. More likely the photos were all sold secretly by FB to enhance their bottom line and their paychecks.

This happens way too frequently with the FB database for it to be accidental. Duckyberg is selling this information and when it gets discovered, it´s a "bug." Last time it was 68 million users who were compromised.

Post false data on your account and make the entire enterprise useless.

New fossil finds over the past few years have been forcing anthropologists to reexamine our evolutionary path to becoming human. Now the earliest modern human fossil ever found outside the continent of Africa is pushing back the date for when our ancestors left Africa. (Snip) The earliest humans, referred to as hominins by anthropologists, lived around six to seven million years ago in Africa. These early evolutionary ancestors are recognized as belonging to the human family mainly because their bones reveal clear signs of bipedalism: They walked on two feet.

"Looking back, I stepped over the line several times, and I was the first one to say sorry," says Schwarzenegger. "I feel bad about it, and I apologize. This isn´t the first time the Hollywood actor-turned-politician has expressed regret. Days before winning the 2003 recall election for California governor, he faced groping accusations from several women and admitted he had sometimes "behaved badly" on film sets. "It is true that I was on rowdy movie sets and I have done things that were not right which I thought then was playful," he said at a campaign event on Oct. 2,

The turmoil at Tesla reached a fever pitch Friday, as news emerged that two senior executives will leave Elon Musk´s electric-car maker a matter of hours after he smoked marijuana during an hours-long interview with a comedian. Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton gave notice Tuesday that he was resigning less than a month into the job, according to a filing. Tesla´s stock plunged, then extended declines after Gabrielle Toledano, the head of human resources who´s been on a leave of absence, told Bloomberg News that she won´t rejoin the company.

President Donald Trump joked in an interview with Bloomberg on Thursday that the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was "having a nervous breakdown" over his response to Sen. John McCain´s death. Sanders reportedly stared at him as he refused to answer whether he thought McCain would have been a better president than Barack Obama, who defeated McCain in the 2008 election. Trump told Bloomberg he believes he properly honored McCain following his death.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare a national emergency to achieve an agenda, such as gun control policy. Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.” (Photos) Speaker Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference, “You want to talk about a national

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday celebrated Amazon´s decision to cancel its plans to build a second headquarters in New York City. "Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world," Ocasio-Cortez, one of the deal´s staunchest critics, wrote. (Tweet) Her statement came shortly after Amazon in a blog post announced that it was canceling its plan to build offices, dubbed "HQ2," in Queens, citing pushback from "a number of state and local politicians."

I first wrote this article for American Thinker the first day after Jussie Smollett’s alleged attack where I expressed some of my own skepticism about the event. (snip) Perhaps life imitates art and could give insight into Smollett’s ulterior motives. His own music video that he performed in and directed in March of 2017 called “F.U.W.”, has the imagery of a black man standing under a noose. Right after appears a man in a Donald Trump mask standing behind the T.V. actor. The song and accompanying music video are essentially just liberal porn

Rep. Gwen Moore (D., Wis.) summed up her excitement about Americans´ improving economic wellbeing in the first two years of the Trump administration by saying "blah, blah, blah" Wednesday. Moore, an eight-term congresswoman, reacted to widespread prosperity across demographic lines by attempting to discredit them as short-term during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing. Moore referrred to Republican Rep. Darin LaHood´s statistics that show the economic situation is improving for African Americans, Hispanics, and the country as a whole, but she wasn´t as enthusiastic about those numbers.

The record-long partial government shutdown, the threat of a new one, and posturing by all sides have thrust immigration to a near record level of importance in the minds of Americans. However, a significant majority still strongly opposes any major new wall construction.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.
