Instagram withdraws policy change
won´t put users´ photos in ads

Los Angeles Times, by Salvador Rodriguez

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/18/2012 8:36:30 PM

Instagram has said it will remove language from its new terms of service that would have allowed users´ photos to be part of advertisements that would run within the photo sharing social network. Kevin Systrom, the social network´s co-founder, said Instagram doesn´t currently have plans to run such ads, so it will remove that language from the terms of service that kick in Jan. 16. "We do not have plans for anything like this and because of that we’re going to remove the language that raised the question," Systrom said in a blog. Systrom said Instagram was listening to its users and would fix any

Anyone using this site is stupid!

They will try something like it again but disguise it as some privacy policy change that you end up "agreeing" to.

I know it´s hard for people who have always lived in the same place, and their relatives and friends have always lived in the same place, and everyone they know is in their little town, but some of us have far-flung families and friends. I´m not stupid, but I belong to FaceBook. How else would I know what my family, all over this great country of ours is doing. I can see what my nephews are up to (they are all adults), and even my sisters, and cousins, and cousins kids.

I will probably delete all my pictures. But, even they are a way to share the weather, the kids growing up, whatever. I do worry about privacy, and my rights, but it´s a conscious decision what to post, who to friend. It´s not done out of stupidity, it´s done out of a sense of belonging to a family.

The three-minute window for MH370
to vanish from radar screens
Malaysian Insider [Malaysia], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/14/2014 3:36:30 AM     Post Reply
Three minutes. That is the time frame to deliberately switch off a plane´s transponder and remain invisible on radar without arousing any suspicion if they are flying between Malaysian and Vietnamese airspace, pilots say. One pilot familiar with the route said there is a point over the Igari navigational waypoint in the South China Sea where commercial pilots have to use radio to communicate with air traffic controllers as the planes would be out of reach of civilian radars. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 carrying 239 people on board disappeared over the Igari area last Saturday while en route to Beijing.

Did MH370 fly on for hours? Satellite

News Corp [Australia] & wires, by Cindy Wockner    Original Article

Kuala Lumpur - US investigators are convinced the communication systems on Flight MH370 were shut down by someone on board and have satellite data showing the missing plane flew on for up to five hours after it disappeared. Intermittent data “pings” from the missing Malaysia Airlines jet reportedly gave its location, speed and altitude for an extended period after it vanished from civilian radar screens, with the last transmission putting the plane over water at a “normal” cruising altitude. In the latest development Chinese researchers detected a “seafloor event” near the waters between Malaysia and Vietnam, about a hour and 30 minutes

Washington - Messages sent by a maintenance alert system cannot provide the "physical location" of a missing plane but indicate whether there are system or engine failures, a U.S. expert said Thursday. (Snip) The newspaper later retracted one detail in its original report, which had incorrectly stated that U.S. investigators were looking at data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the plane´s Rolls-Royce Trent engines. "I´ve heard conflicting versions of exactly what the WSJ was reporting. That may have been the ADS-B system, Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast system, which sends a signal twice

Bipartisan group of senators reach
deal on extending unemployment benefits

A bipartisan group of senators says they have reached a compromise extending jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed for five months. If the Senate approves the deal, it would break a months-long stalemate over the issue in the chamber between the two parties. Two leaders of the negotiations -- Democratic Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island and Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada -- said in a statement that the deal would be retroactive to the end of last year. Since that time, jobless coverage has expired for roughly 2 million people. The proposal would be paid for by extending some customs fees and changing how some

White House: Hunt for missing
airliner may extend to Indian Ocean

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — Authorities searching for a missing Malaysian airliner may extend the hunt hundreds of miles farther west into the Indian Ocean, a U.S. official said Thursday, as the Malaysian government acknowledged it has made little progress in solving the mystery of the vanished plane. The White House cited unspecified “new information” as the basis for expanding the search. Administration officials later said the new information was that the plane’s engines remained running for approximately four hours after it disappeared from radar early Saturday over the Gulf of Thailand.

House backs bill to sue
president over ignoring laws

A bill is now making its way through Congress addressing the growing controversy in Washington over executive authority. The GOP-led House has backed legislation that would require the president to enforce laws passed by Congress. The White House says Obama would veto it if it hits his desk. Appearing on "America´s Newsroom" Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul explained the importance of giving Congress the legal authority to sue the president. "He seems to be writing his own laws whenever he feels like it. The problem is, we can´t sue him, because we don´t have standing in court. So, the legislation that I've introduced in the Senate

The Botched Hunt for
Malaysian Airlines Flight 370

The contradicting accounts of what happened to the plane would be farcical if not for the 239 people who are missing. How did Malaysia get this so wrong? Who exactly is coordinating the release of information about the fate of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370? Nobody, it would seem. It depends which source you listen to—the government officials, the airline, or the Malaysian military. For there to be such imprecision in the information and so many contradictions between sources four days into a search would be farcical were it not for the tragedy unfolding and the distress being caused. Working quietly in the background, and clearly becoming

House Speaker John Boehner has invited Pope Francis to address a joint meeting of Congress. Boehner says in a statement that the pope has inspired millions with his pastoral manner and servant leadership. The speaker says he had extended an open and formal invitation to the pontiff. In his statement, Boehner highlights the pope´s call for the protection of the most vulnerable -- the ailing, disadvantaged, "impoverished and the unborn."

Malaysia Flight: ´No
Technical Data Was Sent´

Communications satellites picked up a faint ´electronic ping´ from the missing Malaysian aircraft after contact was lost according to a source close to the investigation. The signal was an indication the aircraft´s troubleshooting systems were ready to communicate with satellites if required, but no data was sent because Malaysia Airlines had not subscribed to the full troubleshooting service, the source said. International airlines use a reporting system which collects technical data during each flight so that engineers can identify problems. These reports are broadcast to engineers via VHF radio or satellite during the flight.

Malaysia - Malaysia said today that satellite images of suspected debris from a missing jet were yet another false lead, and debunked a report the plane had flown on for hours after losing contact – leaving the nearly week-old mystery no closer to being solved. China had sparked talk of a breakthrough in the riddle of the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) jet with satellite images of three large floating objects near where flight 370 with 239 people on board lost contact on Saturday, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But Vietnamese and Malaysian planes that searched the area in the South China Sea today found no sign of wreckage of the

Economics of Sex Trade
New York Times, by Annie Lowrey    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/12/2014 8:45:19 PM     Post Reply
Washington - A street prostitute in Dallas may make as little as $5 per sex act. But pimps can take in $33,000 a week in Atlanta, where the sex business brings in an estimated $290 million per year. It is not nearly as lucrative in Denver, where prostitution and other elements of an underground trade are worth about $40 million. Those are some of the findings of a landmark government-sponsored report on the size and structure of the sex economy, including massage parlors, brothels and expensive escort services. The study also found that four in five pimps elect not to deal drugs and that little money trades hands in the child pornography business.

Reilly’s identity was confirmed by Salvatore Arena, an LIRR spokesperson, who said an investigation into the incident was continuing. Passengers on the west-bound express train told MTA investigators they saw a man standing by the tracks before he jumped in

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage.

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky. Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23.
