Tim Scott Reads Hate Mail From “Tolerant” Leftists After Supporting Sessions

You cannot sit there and call yourselves the more tolerant political party when you also house people who will throw around racial slurs simply because someone disagrees with them.Republican Sen. Tim Scott exposed liberal hypocrisy on the Senate floor Wednesday evening when he read hateful and racist tweets that were directed at him after he his vote to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.“If you sign up to be a black conservative, the chances are very high you will be attacked,” he said. “It comes with the territory, and I’ve had it for 20 years, two decades, but my friends and my staff, they’re not used to the level of animus that comes in from the liberal left that suggests that I somehow am not helpful to the cause of liberal America and therefore I am not helpful to black America.”He then proceeded to read a slew of hateful messages he received from liberals, opting to leave out the ones that contained the n-word because “I just felt like that would not be appropriate.”

Lawmakers Seek Measures to Protect Citizens from Protester Violence, Intimidation

Leftist agitators are escalating their protests into intimidation and violence on campuses in public venues across the country — against elected officials, public figures, and fellow students —  and now some lawmakers are saying, “Enough!”The scale of the liberal resistance ranges from the national to the local. Politico reported yesterday that Republican members of Congress fear violence as they plan to repeal Obamacare.

On Inauguration Day former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, while visiting Washington, was forced down an alley and boxed in against locked doors after an intimidating mob stalked him yelling pejoratives, expletives, and threats.Meanwhile The Daily Caller explained how a loosely connected “resistance” to President Trump has vowed to become “ungovernable,” with groups such as DisruptJ20, Black Lives Matter, Refuse Fascism and Occupy Oakland stirring up riots and revolution. And last week Breitbart.com editor Milo Yiannopoulos was prevented from speaking at the University of California at Berkeley due to mob violence.Even employees of the Environmental Protection Agency joined protests on Monday in Chicago.

Monkeys and dogs judge humans by how they treat others 

Be nice – or your dog may judge you. Both pets and monkeys show a preference for people who help others, and this might explain the origins of our sense of morality.Studies involving babies have previously shown that by the age of one, humans are already starting to judge people by how they interact. This has led to suggestions that children have a kind of innate morality that predates their being taught how to behave.Comparative psychologist James Anderson at Kyoto University and his colleagues wondered whether other species make social evaluations in a similar way.They began by testing whether capuchin monkeys would show a preference for people who help others. The capuchins watched an actor struggle to open a container with a toy inside.Then this actor presented the container to a second actor, who would either help or refuse to assist. Afterwards, both actors offered each capuchin food, and the monkey chose which offer to accept.

Huggies Launches Preemie Diaper Line For Babies Who Weigh As Little As Two Pounds

Having a baby can be stressful enough as it is, but parents of premature babies often have even more to worry about. Preemies are susceptible to many health problems after birth that can affect them in long-term ways, and they sometimes need to stay in the hospital for extended periods of time, often in the neonatal intensive care united (NICU). These babies and their parents need all the comfort they can get, which is why diaper brand Huggies just launched Huggies Little Snugglers Nano Preemie Diapers — a new diaper line for prematurely born babies weighing as little as two pounds.Fewer than 1.4 percent of babies born each year are this small, according to a press release for the diapers. However, the team at Huggies wanted to make sure they could offer these babies a safe, comfortable option. After all, diapers are often the only clothing that touches preemie baby’s skin. Diapers that are too large can irritate premature babies fragile, underdeveloped skin. Huggies has just eliminated this issue, easing some of both the babies and their parents concerns.

IBM Watson to power cognitive security operations centers 

 

At RSA Conference 2017, IBM Security announced Watson for Cyber Security, the industry’s first augmented intelligence technology designed to power cognitive security operations centers (SOCs).

IBM Watson Cyber Security

Over the past year, Watson has been trained on the language of cybersecurity, ingesting over 1 million security documents. Watson can now help security analysts parse thousands of natural language research reports that have never before been accessible to modern security tools.

According to IBM research, security teams sift through more than 200,000 security events per day on average, leading to over 20,000 hours per year wasted chasing false positives. The need to introduce cognitive technologies into security operations centers will be critical to keep up with the anticipated doubling of security incidents over the next five years and increased regulation globally.

Parents Do Need to be Vigilant But, No, Minecraft Does NOT Have a “Doorway to the Black Web”

Outline:Circulating message warns parents that games such as Minecraft have a doorway to the “black web”. The message claims that, if players move their game character through this doorway, they can then become the target for groomers.Analysis:To be clear, if younger children are playing games in which they can interact with other players online, then parents and guardians certainly need to remain vigilant. Predators have indeed contacted and groomed children via such platforms.However, the claim that Minecraft or other such games have some sort of magical doorway to a sinister “black web” inhabited by sexual predators is simply nonsense. There is no such doorway.The person who wrote and first distributed this would-be warning may have meant well, but he or she apparently has very little understanding of how the Internet actually works. Presumably, the author of the warning is referring to the so-called dark web when he or she references the “black web”.  In fact, the dark web can be defined as a “collection of websites that exist on an encrypted network and cannot be found by using traditional search engines or visited by using traditional browsers”.

Secondhand smoke isn’t as bad as we thought.

Helena, Montana, does not often make global headlines, but in 2003 the small capital city became known for briefly achieving one of the most astounding public health triumphs ever recorded. In June of the previous year, Helena had implemented a comprehensive smoking ban in its workplaces, bars, restaurants, and casinos. In the first six months of the ban, the rate of heart attacks in the city plummeted by nearly 60 percent. Just as remarkably, when a judge struck down the smoking ban in November of that year, the rate of heart attacks shot right back up to its previous level.

For three anti-smoking advocates—local physicians Richard Sargent and Robert Shepard, and activist and researcher Stanton Glantz from the University of California at San Francisco—this sudden drop in heart attacks was proof that smoking bans usher in extraordinary benefits for public health. “This striking finding suggests that protecting people from the toxins in secondhand smoke not only makes life more pleasant; it immediately starts saving lives,” said Glantz in a press release sent out by UCSF.

How to Trace an IP Address to a PC & How to Find Your Own

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is as unique to a computer as a fingerprint is to us.An IP address enables one networked device to talk to the next. The downside of this inter-connectedness is that a logical location provided by the IP address is an open arms invitation to spammers and hackers. The art of war necessitates the importance of knowing who your ‘attacker’ is. Being able to trace an IP address to a PC is a direct way to remove the cloak of anonymity from a computer communicating with your own.

What Is an IP Address?

An IP address is a series of digits separated by dotted decimals and represented from 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255. We are still currently following the Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4), although its successor, Version 6 (IPv6) — developed in 1995 — has been standardized, and deployed since the mid-2000s.

Steve Bannon Invested $60 Million in a World of Warcraft Gold-Farming Company – CraveOnline

Information regarding one of Steve Bannon‘s unusual business decisions is doing the rounds online, with it having been revealed that he once funneled $60 million into a company that sold virtual goods in World of Warcraft.In an old article recently unearthed by WIRED, it was revealed that before Bannon took over as the CEO of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, he once used a reported $60 million of financial company Goldman Sachs’ money to invest in Internet Gaming Entertainment. IGE is a company that trades virtual currency and accounts in MMOs, specifically Blizzard’s hugely popular World of Warcraft.

Bannon convinced Goldman Sachs to allow him to pile the extortionate amount of money into IGE in 2006, before the company was hit by a major lawsuit in 2007. The article reads:“Goldman Sachs started making visits, inspecting the Asian operations and talking with Bannon and others about terms. Finally, on February 7, 2006, the deal was inked: Goldman Sachs, together with a consortium of private funds, made a reported $60 million investment in the company. Part of the money was used to buy Pierce, Salyer, and IGE’s general counsel, Randy Maslow, out of some of their stock in the company. Pierce walked away with $20 million and still retained the controlling share of a company that was doing more than a quarter of a billion dollars in sales a year. “

Van Jones: ‘Sometimes Liberals Are Too Knock-Kneed About Standing Up’ to Islamic Fundamentalism

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Messy Truth with Van Jones,” host Van Jones argued that “sometimes liberals are too knock-kneed” about standing up to Islamic fundamentalism.Jones said to his guest, HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher, “[Y]ou and I actually agree a lot on the need to be tough on these fundamentalists. And I think that sometimes liberals are too knock-kneed about standing up. And at the same time, I think even somebody who is very concerned about the bad part of Islam has to be excited about the good part of Islam.”
