‘Straight Outta Compton’ Hit with Defamation Lawsuit by Former N.W.A Manager Jerry Heller

Former N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller wants the world to know he’s not really a “bad guy.”

In a $110 million defamation lawsuit filed on Friday against producers and others connected with Straight Outta Compton, Heller slams the hit film as falsely portraying him as responsible for the break-up of the rap act consisting of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy E and others. Heller says he didn’t take advantage of the artists, didn’t withhold a $75,000 check from Ice Cube, wasn’t enjoying lobster brunches while contracts were being finalized, wasn’t fired by Eazy E and more.

After signaling the lawsuit was coming and shopping around for attorneys to represent him, Heller landed with Michael Shapiro, who was slapped with sanctions earlier this year for failing to serve the many defendants in a lawsuit over music used in The Steve Harvey Show.

The Racial Inequality of Sleep

The San Diego researchers planned to use the polysomnography machine to document slow-wave sleep—the phase of sleep “when it’s really hard to wake you up,” as Tomfohr describes it. Slow-wave sleep is thought to be the most restorative period of sleep, and it’s important to good health: Experiments where people are denied slow-wave sleep on purpose have shown that bodies quickly change for the worse. (One paper, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2007, found that study participants who were denied slow-wave sleep for three nights—researchers would sound an alarm in their ears when they entered this sleep phase—became less sensitive to insulin, a precursor to diabetes.)But it wasn’t just slow-wave sleep in general that interested the researchers; they specifically hoped to compare how blacks and whites experienced slow-wave sleep. And what they found was disturbing. Generally, people are thought to spend 20 percent of their night in slow-wave sleep, and the study’s white participants hit this mark. Black participants, however, spent only about 15 percent of the night in slow-wave sleep.

The study was just one data point in a mounting pile of evidence that black Americans aren’t sleeping as well as whites. This past June, the journal Sleep published a study on the sleep quality of black, white, Chinese, and Hispanic adults in six cities across the United States. The participants were pooled from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), a cohort of more than 6,000 people who, for the last 15 years, have been intermittently pricked, prodded, and assessed to discover how geography and race influence health over time. (More than 950 papers have been published on this cohort. It’s from them that researchers have found evidence that the farther people live from a wealthier area, the more likely they are to develop insulin resistance—or that blacks appear to have higher levels of the substances that cause blood to clot.)rread unexcerpted article http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/10/the-sleep-gap-and-racial-inequality/412405/

Kim Dotcom Wants to Build an Alternate Internet Powered by Blockchains

Kim Dotcom certainly hasn’t been letting his ongoing fight against US extradition charges slow him down. On Thursday, according to Mashable, he remotely addressed a startup convention in Sydney, Australia to pitch his latest idea: an alternative internet called MegaNet.

Dotcom is wanted in the US on criminal copyright infringement charges thanks to his file-hosting site Megaupload, which had a successful run until it was shuttered by the US Justice Department in 2012.

Now Dotcom wants to move on to his next big idea—an alternative internet free of IP addresses, one that would make it more difficult for servers to get hacked. (MegaNet would instead share data via blockchains, a la bitcoin.)

Plastic Eating Fungi Discovered — A Solution for Our Trash Saturated World?

Plastic-Eating Mushroom Discovered in the Amazon Rainforest

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

In a world addicted to plastic, it’s hard to imagine life without it. The problem is, plastic doesn’t breakdown safely and has proven itself to be exceedingly toxic for the planet and its inhabitants. We’re drowning in the stuff and it doesn’t look like our reliance on the material will end anytime in the near future. Radical solutions are needed — and soon. Recently, a team of students discovered what very well may be part of the answer: a plastic-eating fungus.

Choking to Death on a Modern ‘Wonder’ Material

Plastic is a relatively new material, developed in the last seventy years or so. As I wrote previously in “Plastic is Killing the Planet and Our Health — Here’s How We Can Turn the Tide,” the widespread use of the material is directly linked to the military needs of the United States:

“During World War II, raw materials were in short supply and we needed a resilient, economical and easily manufactured substitute. Plastic to the rescue! Made from readily available petroleum, plastic was the go-to material for the war machine. It was also a boon for oil companies as they had an entirely new market to tap — from 20 million pounds in 1927 to 650 million pounds by 1943. That’s a 3,000% increase in just a few short years.”

Jump to the present day. A recent article from The Huffington Post gives us a glimpse into how much plastic American consumers throw away each year, citing sobering data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

  • Plastic Plates and Cups: 780,000 tons were produced, and all 780,000 tons were discarded.
  • Plastic Bags, Sacks and Wraps: 3,960,000 tons were produced. 9.8% was recovered (390,000). 3,570,000 tons were discarded.
  • Plastic Trash Bags: 930,000 tons were produced, and all 930,000 were discarded.
  • “Other” non-durable goods including plastic disposable diapers, footwear and clothing: amounted to 4,810,000 tons produced with all 4,810,000 tons discarded.
  • PET Bottles and Jars: 2,680,000 tons were produced, 27.2 % were recovered (730,000 tons) and 1,950,000 tons were discarded.
  • HDPE (white translucent homopolymer bottles): 750,000 tons were produced, and 29.3 % (220,000 tons) were recovered. 530,000 tons were discarded.
  • “Other Plastic Packaging” including coatings, closures, lids, caps, clamshells, egg cartons, produce baskets, trays, shapes, and loose fill: 3,720,000 tons were produced. 3% (110,000 tons) were recovered, and 3 Million 610 Thousand Tons were discarded.

Plastic isn’t really something we can sweep under the carpet and have it magically disappear without it causing problems, although we’ve certainly tried our best to do so — by dumping it into the ocean (so another country will have to deal with it), burying it in landfills (which eventually leach a toxic mess into the soil and ground water) or burning it (airborne DDT and PCBs anyone?).

Susan G. Komen Foundation Sue’s Charities Over Use Of The Word ‘Cure’

In addition to raising millions of dollars a year for breast cancer research, fundraising giant Susan G. Komen for the Cure has a lesser-known mission that eats up donor funds: patrolling the waters for other charities and events around the country that use any variation of “for the cure” in their names.

So far, Komen has identified and filed legal trademark oppositions against more than a hundred of these Mom and Pop charities, including Kites for a Cure, Par for The Cure, Surfing for a Cure and Cupcakes for a Cure–and many of the organizations are too small and underfunded to hold their ground.

“It happened to my family,” said Roxanne Donovan, whose sister runs Kites for a Cure, a family kite-flying event that raises money for lung cancer research. “They came after us ferociously with a big law firm. They said they own ‘cure’ in a name and we had to stop using it, even though we were raising money for an entirely different cause.”

Donovan’s sister, Mary Ann Tighe, said the Komen foundation sent her a letter asking her to stop using the phrase “for a cure” in their title and to never use the color pink in conjunction with their fundraising. What bothered her most about the whole ordeal, she said, was that Komen forced her to spend money and time on legal fees and proceedings instead of raising funds for cancer.

“We were certainly taken aback by it,” she told HuffPost. “We have partners running these kite events around the country. What if one of them uses, say, magenta? Is that pink? I mean, where are we going with this? We just want to raise money for cancer. What we don’t want is to have our energy misplaced by having our charity partners trying to police the good work that we’re doing.”

Obama Caught Making Secret Agreement With Massive Muslim Nation… No One Knows What It Says

Obama-Feeds-America-SC_s640x427-600x350

It’s the most populous Muslim nation on earth. It’s where President Barack Obama attended a madrassa — a traditional Islamic religious school — in his youth. And now, it’s the lynchpin of a secret trade agreement the president has passed without congressional input.

After a White House meeting on Monday, President Obama and Indonesian President Joko Widodo both confirmed their commitment to the Trans Pacific Partnership, a mostly-secret trade agreement between twelve nations.

“Indonesia intends to join the TPP,” Joko told reporters after the meeting, according to The New York Times.

Why Do Top Government Personnel Keep Using Private Email for Official Business?

This was among the head-scratchers to emerge from the news this week that teenage hackers had gained access to CIA director John Brennan’s unfashionable email account, yielding more than 2,500 email and instant message addresses for high-ranking government officials. But the more important question is why the boundaries between personal and work email accounts appear to be so porous in the upper echelons of the government.

There are plenty of reasons to care when government officials use their personal email accounts for work-related activities, particularly when it comes to transparency and accountability. Journalists may not be able to gain access to emails sent from personal accounts under the Freedom of Information Act, and communications meant to be public record can stay under wraps. This has been one of the main criticisms lobbed at Hillary Clinton for using a private server for much of her work-related email during her Secretary of State.

But do Clinton and Brennan’s use of personal email accounts endanger national security? It’s worth asking whether Brennan’s contacts—or the contents of his email—would have been measurably more secure had they been stored on servers operated by the CIA. For that matter, is any of the information stored on Clinton’s personal server more easily accessible than it would have been on a State Department server?

Right-to-Farm Debate Heats Up

If I asked you to think of an agricultural-law issue that’s been making news in states across the country recently, you’d probably throw up your hands in the air. Maybe you’d shrug and suggest something to do with genetically modified food (GMO) labeling. And if I told you, as I am, that the answer to my question was Right-to-Farm laws—which NPR labeled “a divisive national issue” earlier this year—I suspect my first task would be to explain just what the heck the term means.

Right-to-Farm laws are on the books in all fifty states. They are enshrined into some state constitutions, including in Missouri, where the state constitution now guarantees, in perpetuity, “the right of farmers and ranchers to engage in farming and ranching practices” in the state.

Right-to-Farm laws like Missouri’s generally serve two key purposes. First, they protect farm owners from state and local regulations that might restrict farming. For example, Louisiana recently issued a statewide ban on all private burns in the state, a measure adopted as a result of dry conditions. But the state’s farmers are exempt from the ban. That’s because Louisiana’s Right to Farm Law defines burning as a generally accepted agricultural practice.

A PDF Reader That’s Portable And 20 Times Smaller Than Adobe’s

If you use a PC you almost certainly need to be able to read PDF files sometimes. Maybe you download a book or a technical manual. Or perhaps you received an electronic statement, receipt or invoice from your bank or another company.

Although Adobe’s reader is the official way of reading PDF files, it’s also a huge application that takes a while to load and uses up large amounts of system resources. It’s also a huge 78 MB download, which is a lot of software to install and keep up to date in order to fulfill what is really a relatively simple function.

Pandora will pay RIAA $90 million for playing pre-1972 songs

RIAA

Internet radio company Pandora has agreed to pay the major US record labels $90 million over streaming of pre-1972 songs, which aren’t covered under federal copyright but are covered by state-level copyrights in areas including New York and California.

It’s the second big payment that will go to the Recording Industry Association of America, which has already won a $210 million settlement with SiriusXM satellite radio over the same issue.

The settlement covers Pandora’s past plays of pre-1972 music, and it also covers the music service through the end of 2016. At that time, Pandora will have to reach another licensing deal with the RIAA if it wants to keep playing the old music.

The two parties continue to be engaged in a dispute at the Copyright Royalty Board about how much Pandora should pay per song. The settlement announced today doesn’t affect that dispute, which is ongoing.

“Pandora is excited to have found resolution with these record labels,” said Pandora CEO Brian McAndrews in a statement. “We pursued this settlement in order to move the conversation forward and continue to foster a better, collaborative relationship with the labels.”

How to Fix Windows Visual C++ Runtime Errors

Written by Bruce Epper 

Shared libraries in Windows make programming much more efficient for the programmer who does not need to reinvent the wheel every time he needs to perform a common task. They also make it easier to plug security holes in shared code when they are found since it needs to be patched in fewer places and does not require that every application be recompiled.

Despite these positive aspects, they can pose their own problems when attempting to troubleshoot the root cause of error messages they may generate.

Our Reader’s Question:

How to do I fix a Windows Vista 32-bit C:\Windows\explorer.exe problem on a Dell Inspiron 530?

After clicking the OK button in the dialog shown in the screenshot, the screen will blacken out and return to normal running, but it will not allow me to access the C, D, and, at times, the E drive when trying to access them from My Computer.

Israeli General Captured in Iraq Confesses to Israel-Isis Coalition

“There is a strong cooperation between MOSSAD and ISIS top military commanders…Israeli advisors helping the Organization on laying out strategic and military plans, and guiding them in the battlefield”

Kaiser_387[ Editor’s note:  Israel’s claim that Shahak is only a Colonel requires us to at least publish this claim of theirs.  It may well be important to Tel Aviv that a colonel was caught rather than a general.  This reminds me of the battle of Stalingrad and Hitler who promoted General Paulus to Field Marshal in the belief that Field Marshals didn’t surrender.  To Netanyahu, it is obviously a belief that generals don’t get caught.

General Shahak was captured by Shiite militia and is still being held in Iraq.  His captors are keeping DESI informed, a European security organization with close ties to VT.  The article below is based on questions we submitted to his captors this morning.  We also inquired as to the conditions under which he is being held...

Food that is good for the planet actually tastes good too, research suggests

It’s an unfortunate truth that humans don’t always eat what’s good for us — and we don’t always eat what’s good for the planet, either. Food production, alone, is a significant (and growing) contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. And combined with the fuel required to transport various types of in-demand meat and produce around the world, the meat and potatoes on our plates might just have a bigger carbon footprint than we’d like to think about.

So promoting more sustainable food choices is a big concern among environmentalists. The question is whether consumers are actually interested in buying climate-friendly meals — and researchers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich argue that they are.

Researchers Vivianne Visschers and Michael Siegrist conducted two experiments in a cafeteria at their university to find out whether consumers found climate-friendly meals as satisfying as other meals, and whether a climate-friendly label would encourage people to buy the product.

They hypothesized that the greater a meal’s “global warming potential” (that is, the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that went into making it), the more satisfying it would be to consumers. This is because many popular foods, such as many types of meats, also tend to have large carbon footprints.

Nicotine gives brain more codeine relief, risk of addiction

University of TorontoSummary:Nicotine use over time increases the speed that codeine is converted into morphine within the brain, by increasing the amount of a specific enzyme, according to new research in rat models. It appears smokers’ brains are being primed for a bigger buzz from this common pain killer — which could put them at a higher risk for addiction, and possibly even overdose. These findings are part a new way of seeing the brain’s role when it comes to drugs and toxins.Share:

According to new research in rat models, nicotine use over time increases the speed that codeine is converted into morphine within the brain, by increasing the amount of a specific enzyme. It appears smokers’ brains are being primed for a bigger buzz from this common pain killer — which could put them at a higher risk for addiction, and possibly even overdose.

“We’ve known for some time that codeine was metabolized in the liver, but we’ve now discovered that this is also happening within the brain itself,” says University of Toronto pharmacology, toxicology, and psychiatry professor Rachel Tyndale, who is also senior scientist in the Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). “Chronic nicotine use, or smoking, increases the amount of an enzyme that converts codeine into morphine within the brain, increasing pain relief. This may also make you more prone to addiction as the faster a drug gives you a high, the easier it is for you to learn the behavior and become addicted.”

Why Do Students Give Teachers Apples and More from the Fruit’s Juicy Past

As anyone who grew up in the Ohio River Valley knows, the greatest champion of the fruit was a wandering missionary named John Chapman, or Johnny Appleseed. Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and beyond bloomed in the wake of his visits. He was opposed to grafting, the practice of inserting “a section of a stem with leaf buds is inserted into the stock of a tree” to reproduce the same type of apples from the first tree, as described by the University of Minnesota.

Without the human intervention, however, apples remained overwhelmingly bitter and when an anti-alcohol fervor swept the nation in the late 19th century, the plant’s fate was in peril. One of the fiercest of opponents, temperance supporter and axe-wielding activist Carrie Nation, went after both growers and bars, leaving a wake of destruction in her path. Nation was arrested 30 times in a ten-year span for vandalism in the name of her movement, according to PBS.

“But with the help of early public relations pioneers crafting slogans such as “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” the plant quickly reinvented itself as a healthy foodstuff,” according to the PBS production of Pollan’s work.

Elizabeth Mary Wright’s 1913 book, Rustic Speech and Folk-lore, recorded the use of apples as part of common kitchen cures. “For example,” she writes, “Ait a happle avore gwain to bed, An’ you’ll make the doctor beg his bread…or as the more popular version runs: An apple a day Keeps the doctor away.”

Held up as the paragon of moral fastidiousness, teachers, particularly on the frontier, frequently received sustenance from their pupils. “Families whose children attended schools were often responsible for housing and feeding frontier teachers,” according to a PBS special, titled “Frontier House, Frontier Life.” An apple could show appreciation for a teacher sometimes in charge of more than 50 students.

Apples continued to be a favorite way to curry favor even after the practical purpose of feeding teachers disappeared. Bing Crosby’s 1939 “An Apple for the Teacher,” explains the persuasive allure of the fruit. “An apple for the teacher will always do the trick,” sings Crosby, “when you don’t know your lesson in arithmetic.”

How to Install Drivers For Your Older Devices in Windows 7

Though there are a large number of hardware drivers came with Windows 7 RC, for the support to some older plug-and-play peripherals, they are with limited help.

I try to run an outdated web camera in Windows 7. This small-brand product is produced in 2004. It is too old and no way to find or download its driver in official Windows 7 website. When I set up this camera, surely, it can not be correctly identified by the Windows 7 system. Open the Device Manager (Start – Control Panel – System – Hardware – Device Manager), and there is a yellow exclamatory mark beside my web camera, which means my computer can not locate the camera’s driver. Although I know this web camera uses a 301P chip, there has not been any driver of this version for Windows 7.

Then I bring it to mind that probably I can update drivers though Windows Update in Windows 7. First I click Start, select All Programs and choose Window Update to open the Microsoft Windows Update website.

Second, I check the latest updates for my computer in this site and then I find a driver named VIMICRO-image- Lenovo Q350 USB PC Camera there. Third, I follow the step-by-step instructions and update this driver automatically.

FCC looks to higher frequencies for 5G mobile

Frequencies once considered useless for most mobile services could start showing up on phones and other devices in a few years under a plan by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

On Thursday, the FCC adopted a proposal to make four high-frequency spectrum bands available for services including mobile voice and data and machine-to-machine communication, or the Internet of Things. Though some of those bands are already used for technologies such as satellite, they have never been approved for regular mobile service.

All told, the new bands include 3,850MHz of spectrum, enough to fuel so-called 5G mobile technologies that are expected to include high speed, low latency and support for many more connected devices in crowded areas, according to the FCC. The U.S. led the world in adoption of 4G LTE, and adopting the new frequencies will help maintain that leadership, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said at the Commission’s monthly public meeting on Thursday.

As Google proved in 1998, if you want to rule the internet, the key is search. Last year, Facebook expanded its search feature to include not just users, but individual posts. This, coupled with added news features and tools aimed at journalists in past months, is all a part of Facebook’s dream of being not just the biggest, but the only website on the internet that matters.

Today, Facebook announced Search FYI, an expansion of the traditional search tool, that lets users search the entire catalog of more than 2 trillion (2,000,000,000,000) posts. Everything you’ve ever posted publicly? Accessible. (Time to set some new privacy permissions, right?)

US: Drones will soon need distinctive markings, just like aircraft tail numbers

In a new regulatory filing, the Department of Transportation has suggested that it will require new drone owners to have “aircraft identification and marking” on their aircraft, similar to tail numbers on manned planes.Earlier this week, the DOT announced the creation of its new “national registry” of drones. The document, which was published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, cites the rapid increase in the numbers of airborne drones spotted by pilots—apparently double the rate in 2015 compared to 2014.

Harvard Scientist Warns People To Stop Drinking ‘Low Fat’ Milk

Vegans may have had it right all along; while raw, organic milk offers numerous health benefits, a Harvard researcher and pediatrician argues that conventional milk and dairy products alike are a detriment to your health – thanks to added health-compromising sweeteners.

As David Ludwig mentioned in his research, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics, there have been countless pieces of research concluding the ill effects of sugar-sweetened beverages. The over-consumption of sugar has been tied to obesity, diabetes, inflammatory-related pain, and much more. And because of sugar’s negative effects on our health, even the United States Department of Agriculture, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and other organizations are recommending against consuming calories from sugary drinks.

The one calorie-containing beverage they still heavily promote, however, is reduced-fat milk, where the organization recommends drinking 3 cups daily. This is where Ludwig questions the scientific rationale for such recommendations.

“This recommendation to drink three cups a day of milk – it’s perhaps the most prevailing advice given to the American public about diet in the last half century. As a result, Americans are consuming billions of gallons of milk a year, presumably under the assumption that their bones would crumble without them,” says David Ludwig.
