Helioid Twitter explodes over Verizon's 'share everything' plan The social media universe was buzzing Thursday with reports that Verizon, on orders from a top secret court, has been handing over call data to national security officials. The original story, published by The Guardian , had more than 10,200 shares on Twitter and 69,000 shares on Facebook before 10 a.m. By 1:30 p.m., the Facebook shares exceeded 103,000. The hashtag #NSA was trending for hours on Twitter and continued into the afternoon, with anger, confusion and plenty of jokes – especially around Verizon's "share everything plan" and their catch phrase "Can you hear me now?" The Obama administration defended the National Security Agency's need to collect telephone records of U.S. citizens -- without actually confirming published reports that Verizon had been ordered to provide the NSA with call records for millions of U.S. customers since April. Politicians, athletes and celebrities took to Twitter to crack jokes and criticize the government.
Over 80 Groups Call on FBI to End Facilitation of ICE's "Secure Communities" Deporation Program Over 80 Groups Call on FBI to End Facilitation of ICE's "Secure Communities" Deporation Program Groups Demand FBI Address Concerns from Governors and Other High Level State and Local Officials that Program Undermines Public Safety Published on Mar 8, 2012 - 6:01:29 AM By: National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) March 8, 2012 - Today, the National Day Laborer Organizing Network and over 80 other civil and immigrant rights organizations sent a letter to the FBI demanding that it end its facilitation of ICE's Secure Communities deportation program (S-Comm). The letter charges that S-Comm threatens public safety, encourages racial profiling and undermines community policing by turning local police departments into gateways to deportation. Last summer, the governors of New York, Illinois, and Massachusetts requested that S-Comm be delayed or deactivated in their states. The letter is available at this link:
Monsanto’s Blatant Corruption and Disregard for Health : Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo: A Living Document » Talking about Southwest Cultures - This post is the remarks given by Dr. Michael Brescia at the opening of the exhibit of pages from the original Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, on loan from the National Archives. The pages and related materials are on display at Arizona State Museum only through the month of February. Museums, libraries, and archives display important documents and objects from their collections for many reasons, of course, but often do so in an effort to inform the public of how the displayed items fashioned the drama of the human experience, or, conversely, reflected its mundane and routine dimensions. in Washington, D.C. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo tells us much about the period between the Declaration and Emancipation. Historians tell their students to avoid the reductive fallacy when discussing the past, that is, to avoid reducing complexity down to one variable, one explanation, or one reason. I want to conclude my remarks this evening by mentioning the Treaty’s legacy in Mexico.
Bernie Sanders Pledges Legislation Ending 'Absurdity' of Federal Fossil Fuel Subsidies Mark van Laere/CC BY-ND 2.0 We just learned, based on IEA calculations, if all fossil fuel subsidies were eliminated it would result in greenhouse gas emission cuts deep enough to get us halfway to preventing dangerous climate change. Indeed, cutting fossil fuel subsidies has been publicly mulled over for some time, with scant little progress made. Now, at a rally in Washington DC organized by 350.org, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders has pledged to do something about that. Sanders said: One of the absurdities that foes on right here in Washington DC is that Congress keeps voting not for the interest of our children, not in the interest of our future, but for the profits of the huge oil and coal companies. ... Sanders pledged to introduce legislation repealing federal tax breaks to fossil fuel companies, saying that doing so would reduce the federal deficit by over $40 billion over the next ten years. We have subsidized oil companies for a century.
Video: Electric Car From Japan Reaches Over 300KM Travel Range We spent two posts on SIM-LEI, an electric car developed by a a spin-off startup at Keio University in Tokyo in collaboration with a total of 34 domestic and foreign companies, in the past months. And it seems that the startup, SIM Drive Corporation, is on track to start mass-producing the vehicle in about 2 years. The company was set up in August 2009. The main selling point of the newest version is that it can drive over 300km at a constant speed of 100km/h. In spring, SIM Drive said the SIM-LEI (“Leading Efficiency In-Wheel motor”) can reach 333km under “general urban traffic conditions in Japan”. The new model is equipped with a 65kW/700 newton meter engine, an in-dash 19-inch display, and a set of side-view cameras. This video, shot by Diginfo TV in Tokyo, provides more insight:
