FTA: Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation,” Bieber said in a statement....
Let me get this straight:

Jackash #1 speeds on the 405 Freeway and gets pulled over.
Jackash #2 pulls over and runs across the freeway to take photos of (let´s face it) anybody in a Ferrari getting a ticket.
Cop, trying to protect the public from Jackash #1, shoos away Jackash #2 who, cannot navigate himself across a freeway and promptly gets killed.
Foreigner (yeah, I said it) and owner of said Ferrari, proclaims the need in this country (of which he is visiting) for ´meaningful legislation´.

Maybe I´m heartless, but who here sees the opportunity of recasting the ´foreigner´ in this story as Jackash #3?

The cop ordered the papparazzo to cross the highway. I think this looks like a liability case.

WhatsApp founder’s journey

New York Post, by Kaja Whitehouse and Leonard Greene    Original Article

The nation’s newest billionaire is a rags-to-riches success story who escaped communist Ukraine as a teen and lived on food stamps in the United States before hitting it big with a messaging app that has become the hottest thing in social media. Meet Jan Koum, the 37-year-old college dropout who with his partner and mentor, Brian Acton, just sold their startup, WhatsApp, to Facebook for $19 billion in cash and stocks. Koum is now worth $6.8 billion. It’s a long way from the government-assisted, two-bedroom apartment in Mountain View, Calif., where he came of age with his mom, and even farther from his

‘House of Cards’ threatens to leave if
Maryland comes up short on tax credits

A few weeks before Season 2 of “House of Cards” debuted online, the show’s production company sent Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley a letter with this warning: Give us millions more dollars in tax credits, or we will “break down our stage, sets and offices and set up in another state.” A similar letter went to the speaker of the House of Delegates, Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel), whose wife, Cynthia, briefly appeared in an episode of the Netflix series about an unscrupulous politician — played by Kevin Spacey — who manipulates, threatens and kills to achieve revenge and power.

NEW YORK — Just days after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an aggressive plan to prevent traffic deaths, CBS 2 cameras caught the driver of a car carrying the mayor violating a number of traffic laws. But the NYPD responded Thursday evening that the mayor’s caravan, which is operated by police, sometimes has to use special driving techniques for protective reasons. As CBS 2´s Marcia Kramer reported Thursday, the mayor’s two-car caravan was seen speeding, blowing through stop signs, and violating other traffic laws. Kramer reported that if the driver of the lead car, which carried the mayor in

Two leading Republicans on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence say that Michael Morell, former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, provided an account of his role on Benghazi that was often highly misleading and at times deliberately false. “I went back and reviewed some of his testimony the other day and he’s gotten himself in a real box,” says Senator Saxby Chambliss, the highest-ranking Republican on the committee. “It’s really strange.

Facebook and WhatsApp:
A Deal Too Far?

Posted By: Drive- 2/20/2014 1:57:02 PM     Post Reply
I’m on vacation in Mexico this week, with limited Internet access, but here are a few immediate thoughts on Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp, a messaging start-up. I won’t pretend to be an expert on WhatsApp, or on what distinguishes its technology from that of other similar services. But, from a financial perspective, the obvious thing that stands out is the price that Facebook is paying: up to nineteen billion dollars. Even in Silicon Valley, that’s a great deal of money to pay for a company with virtually no revenues, but it doesn’t prove positively that Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg are

Everything Kate Hansen records goes viral. The Olympic luger earned internet fame last week with her pre-race routine of hard-core dancing to Beyonce. And now she has gained attention with the above video of a “wolf in my hall.” The 17-second clip shows the animal roaming the hallways of Hansen’s Olympic dorm, and sparked a debate as to whether it was an actual wolf or a husky, one of Sochi’s many stray dogs. Hansen finished 10th in the women’s luge, but her bubbly personality and social media mastery have made her one of the most popular Americans at the Winter

He´s been called a low-down traitor and a noble whistleblower, and now there´s a new label for fugitive NSA leaker Edward Snowden: action figure. An Oregon-based company, Thatsmyface.com, is offering Snowden´s "lifelike head mounted on a 12-inch fully-articulated action figure body with detailed pre-fitted clothes." Clothing options include casual, business suit or "Indiana Jones." Perhaps a spinoff line will include a Moscow airport-terminal play set? Each doll is $99, with proceeds reportedly going to Freedom of the Press Foundation. (The foundation told news agencies that it hadn´t been contacted about the project.)

Wal-Mart Says ‘Looking’ at Support
of Minimum Wage Raise

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT), the largest private employer in the U.S., said it’s looking at supporting an increase in the federal minimum wage, breaking with business and industry groups that oppose such a measure. Wal-Mart is weighing the impact of additional payroll costs against possibly attracting more consumer dollars to its stores, David Tovar, a company spokesman, said today in a telephone interview. Increasing the minimum wage means that some of the 140 million people who shop at the chain weekly would “now have additional income,” Tovar said.

Members of Congress are hopping on the “House of Cards” bandwagon. The popular Netflix series about a villainous congressman-turned-vice president shows a decidedly dark side to Washington, but that hasn’t kept political figure from watching it, or from using it to promote themselves. Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday issued a release highlighting a reference to her effort to get a Defense Department brochure about sexual assault discontinued last year. Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.) invited the creators of the show to his district to sample the wine in Long Island. A number of congressmen participated in a video last week in which they

Rubio: Obama’s art history

WASHINGTON — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a possible GOP contender for the White House, has blasted President Obama for apologizing to an art historian after questioning the job prospects of art-history majors. “Pathetic Obama apology to art history prof. We do need more degrees that lead to #jobs,” Rubio tweeted Wednesday. On Tuesday, it was revealed that Obama sent a handwritten apology to University of Texas art professor Ann Collins Johns for remarks he made at a GE factory in Wisconsin suggesting students were better off studying subjects more likely to land them jobs than studying art history.

Question: If Obamacare officials cannot prevent accused embezzlers from infiltrating their offices, how can they protect enrollees from grifters, con artists, and thieves in the federal health-insurance-exchange system? Here in my home state, a director of Connect for Health Colorado — the state-sponsored Obamacare health-insurance exchange — was just put on administrative leave. No, Christa Ann McClure did not go on leave over the chronic problems plaguing the cursed Connect for Health website. She’s on leave because she has been indicted for filching funds from her last employer in Montana.

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead. The apology came just a day after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged Nugent to apologize for the remark. “Ted

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

I repeat: I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge. Take

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov. Jerry Brown last month declared

The Federal Communications Commission is trying to reassure House Republicans it has no plans to restrict the freedom of the press. In a letter released Thursday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told Republican leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee his commission “has no intention of regulating political or other speech of journalists or broadcasters.” Wheeler defended new FCC research as the first step toward pinpointing “market barriers” that might affect the “diversity of media voices.” Republicans expressed concern the FCC´s study was an attempt "to control the political speech of journalists” by reviving the Fairness Doctrine, now-extinct rules that required radio and

He will be sitting down with business leaders to discuss a wide range of issues, according to Bob Haus, an adviser in the state.
