And just yesterday, my post was about Social Media endangering covert investigators.
This thesis claims that people fight when deprived of the Internet
‘That is the provocative thesis of a new paper by Navid Hassanpour, a political science graduate student at Yale, titled “Media Disruption Exacerbates Revolutionary Unrest.”
‘Using complex calculations and vectors representing decision-making by potential protesters, Mr. Hassanpour, who already has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stanford, studied the recent uprising in Egypt.
‘His question was, how smart was the decision by the government of President Hosni Mubarak to completely shut down the Internet and cellphone service on Jan. 28, in the middle of the crucial protests in Tahrir Square?…’
Old Racist Photo Stirs New Facebook Furor
Hunter photo a fake, but authorities worry about hate groups
The police wants help in identifying the publisher of the photo
‘The Hawks have launched an investigation into an image on Facebook in which a white man with a rifle poses over the apparently lifeless body of a black child – like a hunter celebrating his kill.
‘The undated picture is on the social networking site in the profile of a user called “Eugene Terrorblanche”, a play on the name of the murdered leader of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB). As of yesterday, “Terrorblanche” had 590 “friends”…’

Banks find a way to screw servicemen & women
No wonder most of bank robbers in Manila are retired military and policemen
Got a mortgage made during the “go go” years of the Bush administration?
Then likely you have problems.
Not only were banks defrauding borrowers and investors, they were also shredding the normal standards of loan servicing.
The result: Crazy fees manufactured out of thin air. Illegal foreclosures. A complete lack of any semblance of customer service.
Bad, right? Imagine trying to fight this chicanery from a war zone ten thousand miles away.
And all the banks are doing this
Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citibank received hundreds of billions of dollars in sweetheart loans to cover their mistakes and fraud.
How do these banks pay the US back?
By routinely screwing their clients including servicemen and women overseas who are barely in a position to fight back.
Who is helping them?
A few Congressmen. The rest of them could not care less. Silence from the White House too.
Banks have achieved a position of maximum power in the US and their arrogance knows no bounds.
If these banks from hell can do this to ‘government issues’, how much more to powerless citizens? Watch too how ‘customer service’ departments seemingly connive with their boss.
