Karim Baratov, a Canadian man arrested in March and accused of aiding Russian hackers blamed with breaching hundreds of millions of Yahoo accounts in 2014, will forgo an upcoming extradition hearing so he can be tried by U.S. prosecutors, his attorney said Friday. Mr. Baratov, 22, will either waive the previously scheduled hearing or consent to being extradited stateside in hopes of expediting lingering legal proceedings connected to the colossal Yahoo breach, lawyer Amedeo DiCarlo told CBC News. “He can’t wait to change scenery,” Mr. DiCarlo said. Mr. Baratov was arrested in March near Hamilton, Ontario,

Comments:
Any bets that Mueller won´t have him brought in to be questioned at the phony Trump-Russian election collusion hearings? A dRATS "Starr" witness?

Female characters get all the worst lines

most money in lead roles
Independent [UK], by Fiona Keating    Original Article

A study into the language of characters in almost 1,000 film scripts has revealed how sexism is embodied by characters on the silver screen. Using automated tools for linguistic analysis, the research found that women characters tend to be around five years younger than their male partners, according to a Times report. If female characters are taken out of the plot, it often makes no difference to the story, found a study due to be published in the Proceedings of the Association for Computational Linguistics. The research by USC Viterbi School of Engineering’s Signal Analysis and Interpretation Lab (SAIL), found that women’s roles

The actor Danny Glover and Senator Bernie Sanders are preparing to lobby the French government for help in the heated attempt to unionize a Nissan car plant in Mississippi. The United Auto Workers suffered a historic defeat of the Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi, this month after a long campaign marred by allegations of bribery and intimidation. Nissan and France’s Renault share a deep alliance, with each company owning shares in the other and sharing a chief executive officer, Carlos Ghosn. The French government owns a close to 20% stake in Renault. (Snip) He and Sanders intend to lobby the French president,

President Trump rebuffed the offer of a phone call from the president of Venezuela late Friday night, after Mr. Trump warned that he is considering military options to address civil and political unrest in the South American country. “President Trump will gladly speak with the leader of Venezuela as soon as democracy is restored in that country,” the White House said. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro requested a phone call with Mr. Trump after Mr. Trump made a surprise statement late Friday that he’s considering unspecified military action to address what the administration is calling a “dictatorship.”

Tokyo - Japan was on Saturday deploying its Patriot missile defence system after North Korea threatened to fire ballistic missiles over the country towards the US Pacific territory of Guam, reports said. Regional tensions are mounting as Washington and Pyongyang ratchet up their war of words, with President Donald Trump warning Pyongyang would "truly regret" any hostile action against the US. The defence ministry started deploying the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) system in Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi in western Japan, which Pyongyang warned could be along its missiles´ flight path, public broadcaster NHK

Donald Trump’s plain speech to
Kim Jong-un, delivered hot and loud
Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/11/2017 11:10:19     Post Reply
Who knew that Kim Jong-un and his distinguished generals grew their skin so thin? A lot of people, mostly affrighted diplomats and denizens of assorted newsrooms on the Atlantic seawall, are still beside themselves in fear and loathing of President Trump’s fiery warning of what North Korea can expect if it gets big ideas about playing nuclear games. Who, indeed? Who expected Guam to be important enough to join (Snip) In fact, some calmer heads think the president’s fire and brimstone was meant not for Kim and his generals, but for Xi Jinping in Beijing, to emphasize that the status quo cannot remain quo for much longer.

Vets group sues Pentagon for not

records of millions of troops
McClatchy Newspapers, by Vera Bergengruen    Original Article

Washington - A veterans organization is suing the Pentagon for exposing private details about troops’ military service on “a truly massive scale” due to lax security on one of its websites. The lawsuit filed by Vietnam Veterans of America charges that that a Defense Department website “is currently exposing private details about the military service of millions of veterans to anybody at all, anonymously, for any purpose.” The shoddy security measures allow virtually anyone to access sensitive data about veterans’ records by typing in a name and date of birth, which are easily available on the internet. This gives “easy access

Washington - Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) has won an $8 billion U.S. defense contract for global logistics support services for special operations forces, the Pentagon said on Friday. The U.S. military often relies on outside contractors to perform support services including logistics at warehouses and depots as well as maintenance, modifications and repairs on equipment like airplanes and vehicles. The contract will support the Army´s Green Berets, Rangers as well as Navy SEALs, the U.S. Department of Defense said in a statement. The 10-year award will extend Lockheed Martin´s current support contract which was set to

Conservatives and gun-rights advocates are condemning a New York congresswoman after she said a top spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association is “a domestic security threat.” U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) lobbed the accusation at the NRA and Dana Loesch, an NRA spokesperson and radio personality, in a tweet Thursday. She said the NRA and Loesch “are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can’t ignore that.” (Tweet) Loesch and her supporters accused Rice of abusing her office, saying she threatened a private citizen’s right to free speech. Many responded angrily on

Close encounter: asteroid the size of

A house-sized asteroid will shave past our planet on 12 October, far inside the Moon’s orbit but without posing any threat, astronomers have said. The space rock will zoom by harmlessly at a distance of about 27,300 miles (44,000km ) – an eighth of the distance from the Earth to the Moon, according to the European Space Agency. It is outside the roughly 36,000km orbit of geostationary satellites. (Snip) Observing TC4’s movements “is an excellent opportunity to test the international ability to detect and track near-Earth objects and assess our ability to respond together to a real asteroid threat,” said an ESA statement.

Mark Steyn debated a newspaper reporter who supported a move by a Minnesota student group to shun white people. According to Steyn, the University of Minnesota has a student group - "tongues untied" - which caters exclusively to "LGBTQIA" people seeking a "safe space." "For those of you who speak English instead of Progressive," Steyn said, "[it is] for non-white gay and trans people." The website Campus Reform later noticed that references to white people being disinvited had disappeared. CityPages columnist Mike Mullen blasted Campus Reform, calling the story´s author a "notably white man from South Carolina.

Bedminster, NJ - President Trump said here Thursday that he is “very thankful” to Russian President Vladimir Putin for expelling hundreds of U.S. diplomats from Russia, because he said it helps him cut the U.S. government´s payroll. Addressing for the first time Putin´s decision late last month that the U.S. Embassy and consulates in Russia would have to cut 775 diplomatic and technical staffers, Trump told reporters that he sees no reason for them to continue working in Russia. “I want to thank him because we're trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I'm concerned I'm very thankful that he let go a large number of people

Hillary Clinton´s pastoral adviser urged her to keep her head up following her unexpected Election Day loss in November and compared the election to Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified.

Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power. “History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries. Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka,

Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) made it clear he has no intention to stop reminding people that President Trump is bigoted against Muslims. The congressman spoke with radio host and Mediaite contributor Dean Obeidallah, where they discussed the fallout from the recent bomb attack against a mosque in Minnesota. The Trump Administration has been noticeably reluctant to comment about the matter, and Gallego slammed the president for marginalizing Muslims around the country with his rhetoric instead of promising to protect them as citizens. “It’s disappointing that Trump doesn’t show any leadership – doesn’t even do attempt to do it on his own –

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass.—Jamaicans and other foreign workers have long powered the summer economy in the upscale tourist haven of Martha’s Vineyard, cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables and mixing fudge. This year, many local businesses had to come up with a Plan B. Facing a shortage of foreign laborers, local restaurants have reduced hours of operation and pared back menus. Managers are cleaning hotel rooms, laundry is piling up and at least one restaurant is using disposable cups to ease the dishwashers’ load. The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.

Worried by the Trump administration’s delay in announcing a military strategy for the war in Afghanistan, Sen. John McCain said Thursday he’ll try to force the debate on Capitol Hill, offering his own plan that would force a troop increase. The Arizona Republican, who is also chairman of the Armed Services Committee, didn’t lay out a number in the legislation but said more U.S. counterterrorism forces should be deployed, and given independent authority to strike targets of the Taliban, al Qaeda or other terrorist groups. Mr. McCain also said the U.S should secure a long-term agreement with Afghanistan for an

Chelsea Handler suggested on Friday that U.S. generals should carry out a military coup to replace President Trump, who she called “our idiot-in-chief.” “To all the generals surrounding our idiot-in-chief…the longer U wait to remove him, the longer UR name will appear negatively in history,” the TV personality wrote on Twitter. (Tweet) Handler’s comments come as the Trump administration, including the Defense Department, are on heightened alert over a rhetorical battle between President Trump and North Korea.

A Minnesota writing conference was canceled Wednesday after people complained about the lack of diversity in the line-up of writers that were going to attend. The organizers of the Loft Literary Center’s conference, aimed at teaching people how to write young adult novels, scrapped their plans when they learned that all the speakers but one were white, reports the Star Tribune. “We have set a goal for ourselves to be inclusive and to work toward equity, and we didn’t think the conference would live up to that mission,” Britt Udesen, executive director of the Loft, said Wednesday. “We made a mistake.” Twenty-two authors

A judge who could "decide Trump´s fate" previously served as senior counsel for Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.). The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that Beryl Howell, who was appointed as a federal judge by President Barack Obama in 2010, signed off Mueller´s request to form a grand jury that will seek to gather documents and question Trump associates. Howell´s role could become "far more active," the Daily Beast reported. The grand jury could potentially put together a report that could start impeachment proceedings that would have to be signed off by Howell before becoming available to Congress or the public.
