U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras
I know that doesn't sound like a big deal but cops let thousands of people off per day on minor things where people just need a warning.
Virtually none of them being young black men, which is the exact problem typifying US LEO since the Jim Crow days.
Limiting the Teaching of the Scientific Process In Ohio
So that's the real end goal - to get religion - or more correctly, Christianity, back into schools so everyone becomes a "good little Christian boy".
more correctly, the Southern Baptist form of Christianity, which from science to women's rights, are in total agreement with Wahhabism.
Time Warner Cable Experiences Nationwide Internet Outage
A self-inflicted single point of failure to a mission-critical network? TWC, you are now qualified to be a government contractor!
New Nail Polish Alerts Wearers To Date Rape Drugs
After she's well-hammered by 3 or 4 untainted drinks, will she still have the ability or memory to 'run the test' on the potentially last fateful drink of the night?
More to the point: stay the eff out of bars and never go to a frat party of any type.
Robo Brain Project Wants To Turn the Internet Into a Robotic Hivemind
PC LOAD LETTER
Lizard Squad Bomb Threat Diverts Sony Exec's Plane To Phoenix
What people fail to understand is that the government is *huge* and as easy as it is to find laughable examples of waste, abuse, and outright incompetence, that's only one end of the bell curve.
"Did you really think they were spending $500 on a hammer?"
UK Police Warn Sharing James Foley Killing Video Is a Crime
The white power structure in Ferguson (more of a norm than exception in Red states) would be glad to use such a system if someone had a video of the execution.
Apparently, Twitter has never heard of the hashtags Slippery Slope and Chilling Effect, let alone First Amendment.
New Research Suggests Cancer May Be an Intrinsic Property of Cells
The was a strangely sensationalist article for NPR; one is left with a sense of hopelessness until the last paragraph or two about promising treatments. Not sure why they were so compelled to bury potential good news under a bushel of sorrow.
FCC Warned Not To Take Actions a Republican-Led FCC Would Dislike
Future infrastructure investment so far in the future, they cannot be seen without a time machine.
Dramatic Shifts In Manufacturing Costs Are Driving Companies To US, Mexico
No one on the face of the planet does Puritanism better than Americans. From birth, we're close-order drilled that work is the *only* ethic, to the point that by the second week of vacation (if it exists), the average American worker starts to feel twitchy, as if they're 'cheating' by not working, or they won't be missed and thus discovered to be irrelevant by the queen and drones.
And this - with a little help from the One-Percenters - is why there will never be a Star Trek style future, where one works due to passion and not subsistence necessity.

This is already been done: http://bladerunner.wikia.com/wiki/Voight-Kampff_machine
The Flight of Gifted Engineers From NASA
Working at Space X would be cool; just like Tesla, until you're part of the 6% summarily shit-canned and told it wasn't a layoff, you just suddenly weren't good enough anymore. I assume this would happen less often or at least far more slowly with far better protections at NASA.
Web Trolls Winning As Incivility Increases
"To have a more civil society, we must destroy privacy and anonymity. Except, of course, for the wealthy and powerful."
Writer: Internet Comments Belong On Personal Blogs, Not News Sites
There is apparently a new app (meaning only mobile?) called Blocktogether that auto-blocks any Twitter accounts that have been created within the last seven days. I'm sure it won't last, but it's a start.
Sniffing Out Billions In US Currency Smuggled Across the Border To Mexico
I bet these rank amateurs don't shrink-wrap bales of hundreds onto pallets that then disappear as morning fog, like Bush / Cheney did.
Microsoft Tip Leads To Child Porn Arrest In Pennsylvania
A message is being sent to the American public: stay compliant and keep your mouth shut, or your dirty laundry is next. I'm no fan of pederasts as their damage propagates to their victims, carrying the misery forward, but they are being cynically used to tell the norms in no uncertain terms: we already know what you've done: step out of line and we'll destroy you. What a free country.
40% Of People On Terror Watch List Have No Terrorist Ties
It wouldn't surprise me if a goodly chunk of those 'unaffiliated' are wanna-be morons that wouldn't ever do anything - except for the prodding by their FBI groomers.
Hotel Chain Plans Phone-Based Check-in and Room Access
I suspect they won't be getting an endorsement from Erin Edwards...
CIA Director Brennan Admits He Was Lying: CIA Really Did Spy On Congress
There are now two J Edgar Hoovers (DNI & DCIA) that have far more power and intel than the original ever fantasized about.
Nothing will happen. Nothing, nothing, nothing.
Journalist Sues NSA For Keeping Keith Alexander's Financial History Secret
How many people support DUI checkpoints, free speech zones, unfettered border searches, constitution-free zones, the TSA, the NSA's mass surveillance, protest permits, stop-and-frisk-type policies, unwarranted surveillance in general, or assassination of citizens without trial?
