The U.K. government is eager to expand already extensive spying powers to ban iMessage, WhatsApp, and Snapchat because the government cannot bypass their encryption features. The proposed ban was added to a revived version of a previously repealed British surveillance bill.
Cameron first indicated his advocacy of the ban following the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris in January, justifying it by asking—without a hint of embarrassment—“In our country, do we want to allow a means of communication between people which […] we cannot read?” He quickly answered his own question: “‘No, we must not.’”
Cameron’s suggestion was part of a larger push to revive the sweeping Communications Data Bill, which detractors commonly refer to as the “Snooper’s Charter.”
By May, the government had announced it would introduce an investigatory powers bill that extended the powers granted in the Communications Data Bill and strengthened the government’s ability to engage in bulk data collection. The Home Office claimed it would “better equip law enforcement and intelligence agencies to meet their key operational requirements” by allowing them to monitor communications more invasively.
Jack “Mr. Pogo” Sexty is now the Guinness World Record holder for the most consecutive pogo stick bounces with 88,047 spanning a total of 10 hours and 20 minutes. He’s also reportedly the first person to take a shit while pogoing.
The Bristol Post has the news on this literal bouncing soul, who reportedly did his damnedest to drop a load in a pot being held by some random dude whose name he probably didn’t even get. “I had only met the guy who offered to hold it about 48 hours before,” Sexty said, which is either a commentary on our shared struggle as humans a la Everybody Poops or an indication that his chamber pot pal probably has a crap fetish.
If there was any doubt just who Obamacare was created to serve from day one (spoiler alert: it was never America’s population), we now have the answer and it is so simple, even a 5-year-old can get it. Moments ago Politico reported that former Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner, and the infamous former administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services who was responsible for writing many of Obamacare’s rules and regulations for the insurance industry, only to be fired following the disastrous rollout of the HealthCare.gov enrollment website, has been hired as the new CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans, the “powerful K Street lobbying group.”
Cited by Politico, AHIP board chairman Mark Ganz in a statement that”There is no better individual than Marilyn to lead our industry through the increasingly complex health care transformation that is underway. She has the respect and trust of policymakers and stakeholders from all sides, and a personal commitment to advance meaningful solutions for improving access to quality, affordable care for all Americans.”
Well, maybe for some Americans: those who are shareholder or employees of US health insurance companies, which as it now emerges, are the biggest benefactors of Obamacare because from the very beginning, they had their own operative setting up the rules and regulations of the biggest US healthcare overhaul in history to benefit, drum roll, them.
And now the same insurance companies, just to benefit some more, are poised or already in process of hiking insurance premiums across America and crush the spending power of ordinary Americans, those who were supposed to benefit from Obama’s socialized healthcare dream.
Since Sputnik and the beginning of the space race, no one could have ever imagined the amount of space debris that has encircled our planet. For nearly 70 years the worlds Governments and Industries have been Dumping Trash around our planet in the name of Science, Communications and Security, Never understanding our earths fragile nature and what tiny micro changes could do to impact our Ecosystem.
Nearly 4000 man made objects are locked into perpetual orbit around the earth, reflecting and beaming concentrated energy from the Sun, helping to increase overall global temperatures, and the more we continue to launch and orbit these objects, the more concentrated our exposure and intensity of the sun?
Problem is whats done has been done and currently nothing we can do about it, until these mindsets change and Science figures out how to clean up their trash. Until then were are Doomed
Researchers who are puzzled by its origins say it was likely caused by gas explosions.
The giant hole located not far from Gazprom’s Bovanenkovo gas field in Russia’s northern Yamal Peninsula has been expanding and additional smaller craters have been appearing around it.
RT reports: The whole area is within Russia’s key strategic oil and gas region – the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
The crater, discovered last year, has been gradually filling up with water and turning into a lake. Over the past winter and spring the water level in the crater has risen by 10 meters and it will continue to rise, scientists said, according to the government website of the Yamal-Nenetsky region.
“I am very surprised by the size, it’s very big!” Japanese reporter for Asahi Shimbun Terukhiko Nouse, who accompanied the science expedition, told local TV. “And the sound of the glacier melting…this sound amazes me.”
By July, two-thirds of the crater had filled with thawed snow and rain water. Scientists have taken tests from the bottom of the crater by lowering special sensors. The results show that the object is unpredictable raising fears of a descent into the crater.
Circulating Facebook post that features a photograph of a baby with a large surgery scar across his face claims that liking the picture equates to a prayer for the child.
The message is just a callous and immoral attempt to promote a particular Facebook Page. The baby’s image was stolen from elsewhere on the Internet and reused in the scam message without permission. And, the suggestion that clicking a Facebook like button can somehow equal a prayer is simply absurd. If you receive this message, do not like, share, or comment on it.
