When Roger Logan started gaining weight in his stomach, doctors told the 57-year-old Mississippi man it was “just fat,” the Bakersfield Californian reports. Not quite. According to KERO, Logan is recovering after traveling across the country to California to have a 130-pound growth removed from his abdomen. (The Californian claims it was 140 pounds.) Doctors say the benign tumor, which started growing about 12 years ago, probably began as an ingrown hair. But it kept growing until it was massive and had its own blood supply. Logan had spent most of the past five years living in an armchair, unable to run his antique store or go fishing.

Scores of individually wrapped heroin packets seized during a Florida drug bust featured a certain famous likeness: that of President Donald Trump, the AP reports. According to the Tampa Bay Times, law enforcement officers seized the drugs Jan. 27 in Hernando County. Packets weren’t only stamped with Trump’s image and name; others bore the names or likenesses of notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar. Authorities couldn’t explain the purpose of the markings. The drug bust netted a total of about 5,550 heroin doses. Police arrested 46-year-old Kelvin Johnson on suspicion of heroin trafficking and other charges. Authorities say Johnson came to their attention in May 2016, after the US Postal Service intercepted a package containing heroin.
Bishop Curry V, a 10-year-old boy from McKinney, Texas, has invented a small device that could save the lives of children left in hot cars.NBCWashington.com reports that he was inspired to design and invent the device, called the Oasis, after a baby died in a minivan in a neighboring town. According to Parenting.com, approximately 37 children die each year when accidentally left in cars that quickly become overheated. The device would attach to the top of a car seat. A sensor would detect if a child was left inside the vehicle and blow cool air onto the child until help arrived. Curry is still in the process of designing the Oasis, but he has a provisional patent, along with some interest from Toyota, where his father Bishop Curry IV works as an engineer.”It would be a dream to have lots of inventions that would save many lives,” Curry V told NBCWashington.com.

“Let me begin by saying that although this has been billed as an anti- war rally, I stand before you as someone who is not opposed to war in all circumstances,” Illinois State Senator Barack Obama said in 2002. Later in the same speech: “What I am opposed to is a dumb war.”
Although elected president at least in part on his image as “the peace candidate,” Obama owned eight years of constant war. He waffled on then partially reversed the withdrawal from Iraq negotiated by his predecessor. He stretched the eight-year Afghanistan war to 16 years and counting. He began or expanded operations in Pakistan, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen, escalating even to extra-judicial assassinations of American citizens.
On foreign policy, Obama served George W. Bush’s third and fourth terms. Now Donald Trump looks set to serve Bush’s fifth term and/or Obama’s third.
Is your data safe from hackers? That’s the hundred billion dollar question.We see breaches happening left and right on the news, yet the IT security industry is expected to boom to $120 billion dollars this year.You would think with all that money getting thrown around that we would see fewer breaches. But they only seem to be increasing, and those are just the public ones.
30 Minutes to Full CompromiseIn our experience, a breach can go from initial entry to full compromise in just a half hour. “Full compromise” means that you cannot get the hackers out without taking extreme measures like taking your system offline or wiping everything. From there, hackers can exfiltrate data undetected within one to three hours.
Bryan Ray, a 31-year-old man from Los Angeles, California, is so obsessed with pop superstar Britney Spears that he has spent $80,000 over the last 14 years to look like her.Ray says he knew there’s was something special about Britney the first time he saw her. The look, her voice and her choreography were “the perfect package” for him and he knew he wanted to be like her. So at age 17, when the dentist designing his veneers asked him which celebrity smile he wanted to base his on, he answered almost instantly. But that was only the beginning of Ray’s transformation, as over the last 14 years, he has had over 90 cosmetic surgeries to make himself look more like his idol.“So many people refer to me as ‘Britney’ and for a very long time friends have greeted me with the infamous quote ‘It’s Britney, bitch!’ from her song ‘Gimme More’, which I absolutely love,” Bryan proudly says. “Britney will always be one of my biggest inspirations. I love that she was the biggest star in the world, went through an incredibly hard time and came out on top.”

Last week Linus Torvalds suggested Linux kernel developers should hurry up and calm things down, because he worried that version 4.10 might take longer than he wanted to complete.And this week he’s all-but recanted that request, because he thinks he may not have time to finish the job.“Hey, look at that,” Torvalds wrote on the Linux Kernel mailing list, “it’s all been very quiet, and unless anything bad happens, we’re all back to the regular schedule with this being the last rc.”“Of course, when I actually looked at my calendar, I realized that if that actually happens, the next merge window will be awkward for me due to travel, so it turns out that I should never have hoped for things calming down in the first place. But I’ve done merge windows during travels before, so it’s not like it would necessarily be a big problem.”
I’ve been quite clear how I feel about Donald Trump’s awful executive order that places a blanket ban on people entering the US (even if they had valid visas) from 7 countries, including a permanent block on Syrian refugees. Tons of people have been protesting this decision, and multiple courts have ruled against it. There has been some discussion over whether or not the tech industry was really going to stand up against this move, and some of the early statements about the executive order were a bit weak.
However, late Sunday night, basically the entire technology industry (plus some companies from other industries as well) signed onto an amicus brief calling the order illegal and unconstitutional (technically, it’s a motion asking for permission to file the amicus brief, with that brief attached).The brief was filed in the Ninth Circuit appeals court, which is one of the first appeals courts considering the executive order, after a federal judge in Seattle issued a nationwide temporary restraining order on enforcing the exec order. On Sunday, the appeals court refused to reverse the lower court, keeping the TRO in place. However, it also gave both parties (the lawsuit itself was filed by the state of Washington) a very quick turnaround time to file written arguments to be considered.
Sometimes the pendulum of our belief swings too far. For example, our perspective on what’s possible.
Before the Renaissance, there were plenty of things that were deemed absurd. If you told Henry the Eighth his descendants would one day carry a device allowing near-instant communication with anyone on the planet, he might break into a condescending smile and then have you committed to some fetid hoosegow where you wouldn’t annoy his subjects.
Hank’s attitude seems cramped and unimaginative today, and so naturally we’re on guard about being too quick to condemn an outlandish idea. We’ve seen too many instances of fantasy becoming fact.
European consumers have been plunged into crisis by a vegetable shortage caused by severe weather.Shops across Europe – and particularly in the UK – have seen the shelves stripped of green produce like lettuce, broccoli and spinach.Courgettes (zucchinis, if you’re American), aubergines (eggplant) and peppers have also been badly affected.The problems stem from a blast of cold weather which has overtaken large parts of southern Europe.These areas are usually able to grow vegetables even through the cold season, but snow and floods have stopped supplies in their tracks.Murcia, a region of Spain, usually does roaring trade throughout winter. But heavy rain means only a third of its fields can be used for agriculture, forcing yields down and sending prices through the roof.According to the BBC, the UK exports 50% of all its vegetables and 90% of its fruit, leaving the supply chain particularly vulnerable to unexpected events overseas.
Outline:Post appearing on Facebook claims that you can click a link to see who viewed your profile in 2017.Analysis:The claim in the message is untrue. Clicking the link will certainly not allow you to see who viewed your profile in 2017 or any other year.Instead, if you click the link, you will be instructed to install a Facebook application, ostensibly so that you can see a list of your profile visitors as promised. But, in fact, the rogue application is designed to trick you into visiting spam survey websites, signing up for expensive SMS services, and divulging your personal information.This is just the latest version in a long line of similar scam messages. All Facebook apps that claim that they will allow you to see who has viewed your profile are scams. None work as claimed.
