  • Venezuela plans to introduce supermarket fingerprinting

    bbc ^ | 8-22-2014
    President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela has announced a mandatory fingerprinting system in supermarkets to combat food shortages and smuggling. He said the system would stop people from buying too much of a single item. But the opposition in Venezuela rejected the plan, saying the policy treated all Venezuelans as thieves. Critics said fingerprinting consumers of staple products was tantamount to rationing and constituted a breach of privacy. Up to 40% of the goods which Venezuela subsidises for its domestic market are smuggled to Colombia, where they are sold at much higher prices, the authorities say.

    Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (Ret.) is a CIA-trained former senior intelligence officer and he says that the rescue operation for American journalist James Foley wasn’t successful because President Obama “dragged his feet”. "Thursday morning, Shaffer appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., to discuss the ISIS execution of American journalist James Foley earlier this week. He told me and co-host Brian Wilson that the recently revealed rescue attempt led by Special Forces earlier this summer failed because President Obama was slow to give the go-ahead: I’m hearing from my friends in the Pentagon, they are giving him every single option...

    A poll of 18-year-old UK teens conducted by the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR) found that a large majority of both boys and girls believe that easy access to online porn puts pressure on them to look and act in imitation of what porn portrays. They also complained that sex education often presents promiscuity as normal, putting additional pressure on them to become sexually active before they might otherwise. "This new polling data shows that pornographic images are pervasive in teenagers' lives and that young women in particular are acutely conscious of how damaging they can be," said Dalia...

Less than 10 minutes after leaving the podium Obama teed-off and was seen laughing with friends and fist-bumping them during a five-hour game Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha's Vineyard - his seventh round in ten days. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter users.'

    This month, a federal judge allowed North Carolina to put into effect new laws that would make it more difficult to vote. Most of the American public didn't notice. The Republicans pushing to restrict voting rights nationwide are betting on such inattention. Emboldened by a recent Supreme Court case limiting the reach of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, GOP legislators have moved swiftly in numerous states to cut early voting and same-day registration, and to require ID cards at the ballot box. Democrats claim these measures will discourage young and nonwhite voters from voting, who tend to vote more often...

Ron Johnson, in charge of securing Ferguson, said just six people were arrested at protests Wednesday night, compared to 47 the previous night, providing hope among law enforcement leaders that tensions may be beginning to ease. The prosecutor, who is white, has insisted his background will have no bearing on the handling of the Brown case. Meanwhile, St. Louis police released video showing officers killing a knife-wielding man on Tuesday. The video shows the man saying, "Kill me now" as he moved toward two officers.

A so-called Occupy Central campaign of civil disobedience has threatened to blockade Hong Kong’s Central business district if Beijing doesn’t allow open nominations, rather than pre-screening candidates and restricting the poll to pro-Beijing “patriots” and those who “love China”.

Anderson, who is a mother of two and a grandmother of one, said when she started at the facility she was on the fence about abortion. This was because when she was on staff at Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis she had seen girls that had attempted abortions...

Why you ask? It’s all about a political agenda, a victimization platform, designed to grossly misrepresent the intent and history behind one the most recognizable teams in NFL history. If you recently fell off the turnip truck and landed in Nancy Pelosi’s garden for the not so gifted, the term ‘Redskins’ was obviously chosen to cheer a professional football team onto victory by conveying the...

    In the 1950s, with the airwaves filling with the sounds of rock 'n' roll, America was changing into a "transistor" nation. Deciding to capitalize on the popularity of radio, Winchester designated a prototype .308 Model 70 with a built-in radio in 1955. A speaker was set into the right side of the stock with a series of holes — carved in the trademark "W" outline — allowing the sound to be heard. Presented as a glittering show gun, the new Winchester soon proved a hard sell.

For residents of Ferguson, Missouri, and surrounding municipalities in St. Louis County, it’s not surprising that racial tensions have boiled over.
