  • Artificial intelligence just made guessing your password a whole lot easier

    Last week, the credit reporting agency Equifax announced that malicious hackers had leaked the personal information of 143 million people in their system. That’s reason for concern, of course, but if a hacker wants to access your online data by simply guessing your password, you’re probably toast in less than an hour. Now, there’s more bad news: Scientists have harnessed the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to create a program that, combined with existing tools, figured more than a quarter of the passwords from a set of more than 43 million LinkedIn profiles. Yet the researchers say the technology may...
  • Judge Rejects Menendez’s Request To Delay His Corruption Trial Because He’s A Senator

    A federal judge in New Jersey rejected Sen. Bob Menendez’s request to allow breaks in his criminal trial in order to fulfill his Senate duties, excoriating the senator for seeking “special treatment.” Menendez’s lawyers filed a motion requesting that his upcoming criminal trial take recesses any time the senator is needed in Washington on official business. They argued that forcing the senator to leave an ongoing trial to attend to congressional business would violate his due process rights. “A trial taking place during a session of Congress risks involuntarily denying Senator Menendez his rights to due process and confrontation, unless...

    Former MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, described by many as the chief architect of Obamacare who famously explained how the health-care law was adopted because of the “stupidity” of American voters, has been “fired for fraud.” It was the Wall Street Journal that earlier reported there were 20,000 pages of emails sent by Gruber between January 2009 and March 2010 regarding his consultation for the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services. He later was found to have said, “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voters or...

    One of the groups that sued the Internal Revenue Service over its targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups believes there has been a breakthrough that will help them draw a more complete picture of what went on behind the scenes at the agency, four years after it took its case to court. In a lawsuit involving True the Vote, Judge Reggie B. Walton of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the IRS last week to release the names of employees involved in targeting conservative and Tea Party groups. Walton also told the IRS to explain...

    Do they really want to destroy our SC for generations and allow the leftists to rip to shreds our Constitution? Have they even considered this in light of their personal animus towards Donald Trump? Is their selfish pride really worth destroying our Republic? If they do this then it will never be forgotten or forgiven.

    Hello again Boys and Girls. This is the Central Scrutinizer speaking… Tonight’s selection is a Jazz Fusion album from 1972 entitled “The Grand Wazoo”. It’s one of my all time fav’s and represents one of Zappa’s earliest leaps into composing for a ‘Big Band’ sound. This is a link to the entire album separated into its 5 tracks. Though I loved this album thoroughly as a youngster I always really dug tracks 4 and 5, “Eat that question” and “Blessed Relief” the best. Some of this takes a few listens before it grows on you bigtime. Zappa aficionado’s know exactly...

    Warning... (OPAQUE MELODIES THAT WOULD BUG MOST PEOPLE) As a lifelong musician who has always been into stuff that's a little out of the ordinary I thought I'd post this wonderful instrumental from Frank Zappa from the album "Chunga's Revenge" released in Oct 1970. Great album from my extensive collection. One of my many favs from FZ. Enjoy... Or don't it's completely up to you.

    It goes something like this: ‘If and when I am elected President of the United States I pledge to you, the American people, who foot the entire bill for our govt. that if I ever try to go around or subvert the US Constitution in any way shape or form that I fully expect to be impeached by the House of Representatives because that would constitute a crime against the American people. I then expect, no I demand, that there then be a trial held in the US Senate and if I am found guilty of crimes against the Constitution...

    Gov. Jerry Brown Friday rejected parole for former Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten, who was convicted of the 1969 killings of grocers Leno and Rosemary La Bianca at their Los Feliz home. A state parole board had recommended in April that Van Houten, now 66, be paroled. “When considered as a whole, I find the evidence shows that she currently poses an unreasonable danger to society if released from prison,” Brown wrote in his decision rejecting parole.

    FONTANA >> Jack Sparrow is recovering from methamphetamine overdose, but he’s not the fictional pirate of the Caribbean. He’s a small Chihuahua from Fontana. On July 5, Jack’s owner brought him to the Inland Valley Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Center in Upland, police said in a news release Monday. Jack’s owner, identified by police as 21-year-old Isaiah Nathaniel Sais, from Fontana, allegedly told doctors he believed Jack may have ingested methamphetamine. And according to test results, he was right. Jack tested positive for the street drug known as “Crank”, according to the news release. But Sais left the vet’s office...

Panicked dog owners brought his dog to Cal Fire station, 26974 Base Line, after the pup got its head stuck in a jar. “This doggie ... got into the hard plastic jar to steal the trail mix inside and couldn’t get out,” said Cal Fire spokeswoman Liz Brown. The owners tried at home to get the jar off, but when they were unsuccessful, they brought the dog to the fire station, she said.

    Firestone Complete Auto Care centers in Riverside, San Bernardino and Upland are among 22 locations accused of fraud by the California Department of Consumer Affairs Bureau of Automotive Repair after an undercover sting operation. Undercover Consumer Affairs investigators who went into the three Inland auto care centers to purchase new tires on May 12, 2015, were billed for parts that were not replaced and services that were not rendered, according to a 64-page complaint against Bridgestone Americas, Firestone’s parent company.

    RANCHO CUCAMONGA >> As the slight, victimized 12-year-old boy sat in a witness box during his uncle’s sexual abuse trial, he tensed up, slumped a little in his chair and reached his hand toward something out of the jury’s sight. His small hand found the warm and dark head of a black Labrador, Lupe, and he began to stroke her fur. Still nervous, the boy was able to relax slightly and continue with his testimony — testimony, which coupled with additional evidence and corroborating witness statements, helped a jury convict his uncle, Mario Hernandez, 59, of Upland, of years of...

He took the callers number and is going to see if he can help him produce more like it. The vid is about a year old but it is well worth the 7 min watch if you haven't seen it before. Forgive if it's been posted here before. A FR search turned up nothing. Conservatism is calling

    IRWINDALE >> Sriracha’s spicy relationship with the City Council cooled off a bit Wednesday after officials unanimously dismissed a lawsuit and public nuisance declaration against manufacturer Huy Fong Foods. The standoff between the city and Sriracha creator David Tran began in October when the city filed a lawsuit against his iconic company. The battle sparked fears among Sriracha fans there would be a global shortage of the popular condiment and its bottle with the tell-tale green cap. An informal meeting Tuesday between Tran and city officials, accompanied by a written statement from Tran, provided the council the assurance it needed...
