News Limited Network [AUS], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/17/2013 5:17:37 PM

A software developer has been busted for outsourcing his own job to a programmer in China, while he watched cat videos at work. The man, an employee who worked for a client of Verizon Enterprise Solutions in the United States, which published a blog post about the incident, ABC News in the US reports. "We´ve seen plenty of employee misconduct cases, but not typically like this," principal Andrew Valentine said. Mr Valentine said the incident was discovered when he was contacted by another company in the US for assistance over "anomalous activity" it had noticed in records.

Comments:
If this story doesn´t make you smile for the creativity and reason for outsourcing, it´s time for a break. After all, what´s cuter than this?:

The guy is brilliant. Instead of firing him, they should have promoted him to CEO. Why didn´t I think of this instead of sitting here coding programs all day?

I´m thinking, OK if he got the job done and done well, who cares how he did it? Maybe if some more politicians in Washington did this we would get a better job done? Just outsource the work to someone more competent.

Dems: Deal or no deal?
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Rebecca Shabad    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/22/2014 3:51:10 PM     Post Reply
About a quarter of the Senate is urging President Obama to consult with Congress over how the United State will respond to Iran if a deal over its nuclear program is or isn´t reached. Twenty-three Senate Democrats made the request in a letter to Obama on Friday, in the third letter Congress wrote to the White House this week on the subject. “Because any long-term sanctions relief will require Congressional action, we urge you to consult closely with us so that we can determine the parameters of such relief in the event an agreement is reached, or, if no agreement is reached or Iran violates the interim agreement, so that we can act swiftly

One of four gubernatorial candidates introduced to California Republicans recently is a registered sex offender who spent more than a decade in state prison, convicted of crimes including voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape. (Snip) Champ, a little-known political neophyte from the Fresno County community of Tollhouse, did not directly mention his criminal past during his speech but said, "In my life, I´ve been held accountable because of my stupidity.

Lawyer: Egypt trial of 545 set for verdict
Associated Press, by Sarah El Deeb    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/22/2014 3:12:59 PM     Post Reply
Cairo - The judge in one of the largest trials of supporters of Egypt´s ousted President Mohammed Morsi declared Saturday he will issue a verdict against the more than 500 defendants only after two sessions, said lawyers who decried the move as violating the norms of a fair trial. The 545 defendants are standing trial in relation to violence following the dispersal by security forces of two pro-Morsi protests in Cairo, in which hundreds were killed. In an apparent backlash, police stations, churches and government buildings were stormed by suspected Morsi supporters across Egypt. The defendants are accused of attacking a police

A Ukrainian far-right paramilitary group that played a key role in protests that ousted pro-Moscow president Viktor Yanukovych last month said Saturday it had formed a political party. "The Pravy Sektor (Right Sector) political party was created today," member Andriy Denissenko said in a YouTube video after a meeting held behind closed doors for security reasons. "The party will be an instrument in the political field in the same way that a Kalashnikov is in the military field," he added. (Snip) "We expect it will be possible to have secret membership for journalists or others who do not want to reveal their party affiliation,"

Detroit - As Detroit struggles through bankruptcy, the city´s young people face special challenges. A look at a few of the problems, and possible remedies: (Snip) — Gang violence is a major problem, directly affecting children and their families. In a recent survey of 1,300 high school students, 87 percent said someone in their family had been shot, murdered or disabled as a result of violence in the past 12 months. Neighborhood patrols have formed to safeguard children going to and from school, and the police department has launched a program trying to keep fight-prone students from getting expelled.

We have myriad tech-enabled ways to encounter friends (and strangers!) in real life. (Snip) The inevitable backlash has, at last, arrived: It’s called Cloak, and it’s an “antisocial network” that uses social check-ins and other geo-location information to help you avoid people you’d, well, rather not see. Here’s how the app works. After downloading Cloak for the first time, you can connect it with Foursquare and Instagram (with more networks to come soon). Cloak then plots where your Foursquare and Instagram contacts are, according to their most recent check-ins. You can casually check the map, or — for exes, chatty neighbors and other

The first Chinese plane heading to Australia to join the hunt for a missing Malaysia Airlines jet landed at the wrong airport on Saturday, underscoring the difficulties facing the increasingly complex multinational search effort. The Chinese IL-76 military aircraft made an unexpected stop at Perth International Airport before heading to its correct destination at RAAF Base Pearce outside Perth, where search and rescue operations for Flight MH370, which has been missing for two weeks, are now being coordinated. "They landed at Perth and then they landed here," RAAF Corporal Janine Fabre told Reuters. "We don't know why."

Russian special forces have stormed a Ukrainian airforce base in Crimea, smashing through two walls, with one Ukrainian soldier reported shot. It comes after a deadline to hand over the base to Russia expired at 12.30 GMT. "They came through the walls in armoured personnel carriers, said Sky News Chief Correspondent Stuart Ramsay, at the scene. "There have been explosions, blast bombs, one Ukrainian soldier has been shot." "We believe they are special forces," said Ramsay. "They are all balaclaved and have slightly different uniforms to regular Russian soldiers. "There was a lot of firing, probably into the air,

Why Ukraine’s Euromaidan is not
spreading to other post-Soviet states
Washington Post, by Farid Guliyev *    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/22/2014 11:21:15 AM     Post Reply
Large-scale protests, like Euromaidan or the Arab Spring, tend to occur in waves clustered in time and space through the processes of cross-country political contention or diffusion, defined by Della Porta and Tarrow as “the spread of movement ideas, practices, and frames from one country to another”. The Euromaidan protest was a sustained demonstration against what was perceived as highly corrupt and personalistic rule of Yanukovych, who was impeached by parliamentary majority after fleeing the capital Feb. 22. The events in Kiev drew attention of opposition activists in Azerbaijan, Russia and Belarus.

The government of Turkey has pulled the plug on Twitter and the White House is not happy. As Mario Trujillo of the Hill reports: White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the administration is deeply concerned the Turkish government attempted to block access to Twitter in the country. Carney said the administration has spoken to Turkey´s government about the issue and has urged it to restore access to the social media service. The Turks evidently mean business as: Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to "wipe out" the roots of the social media site after tweets with links to alleged phone recordings of Turkish

Pope Francis has a warning for Italy´s mobsters: They will go to hell if they don´t repent and renounce their "blood-stained money and blood-stained power." The pontiff on Friday delivered his most forceful denunciation yet of organized crime. (Snip) Addressing these absentee mafiosi, Francis was unsparing: "This life that you live now won´t give you pleasure. It won´t give you joy or happiness," he said. "Blood-stained money, blood-stained power, you can´t bring it with you to your next life. Repent. There´s still time to not end up in hell, which is what awaits you if you continue on this path."

Canberra - The object spotted by a Chinese satellite may be a wing of an airliner, John Blaxland, a senior fellow from Australian National University (ANU) said in a telephone interview with Xinhua on Saturday. Dr. Blaxland, from ANU´s Strategic and Defense Studies Center, said if the measurements of 22 meters long and 13 meters wide are correct, they are more consistent with a wing of a Boeing 777 airliner. Asked about whether the newly spotted object would be the one spotted in an earlier satellite image, Blaxland said they don´t seem to be the same object. "It´s similar shaped, but if the measurements (are correct),

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

During her visit to China, first lady Michelle Obama pointed out that the ability to travel outside of the United States was "rare" but that she chose China for a reason. "It’s very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States, and it’s even more rare to have the opportunity to travel with three generations — with my daughters, and with my mother," she said. "And it is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China." Obama made her remarks while visiting a school in Beijing, with the Chinese first

Today’s Washington Post features an article by Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell. But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned

President Obama took the opportunity to flatter House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi during a fundraiser Thursday for House Democrats at the Florida home of former NBA star Alonzo Mourning. Obama said the California Democrat "will go down in history as one of the greatest speakers in our history" and indicated that he was eager to return her to her former position as Speaker of the House. "She is as tough and principled and as visionary as any member of Congress that we´ve ever seen and I´m grateful to call her a friend," he added. The fundraiser — the first of six Obama has

Though the AP managed to slip Scott´s name in the headline of the report, both news organizations seemed to agree: Scott´s death was newsworthy only because of her romantic association with a legendary rock and roller.

Let me go out on a limb: The Malaysian airliner did not get sucked into a black hole, vanish over the Indian Ocean equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle or crash-land on the spooky island from “Lost.” Those “theories” were actually discussed on CNN this week. Host Don Lemon dismissed them as “preposterous” before asking one of his assembled “expert” guests — there were six of them waiting expectantly in their boxes on the screen — whether, you know, such ideas really were so preposterous. At which point the nonstop coverage of this tragedy entered the Twilight Zone. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines
