    Trending on the social media site, the hashtag takes a cheeky turn on wedding bluesMarital bliss is a tough cookie to crack for several Saudi men who have taken to Twitter to boycott women in general unless bridal dowry isn’t revised to make it easier on their wallets. The Arabic hashtag, which was soon trending on the micro blogging site yesterday, roughly translates to ‘Campaign to boycott girls until bride price is reduced’. The war of the roses took a cheeky turn within minutes, with battle lines being drawn and both sexes swearing of marriage until a lasting solution was...

    Friend -- If you want to wake up on November 7th to four more years of President Obama, and not the alternative, then chip in $5 or more today -- that's just $1.25 for each week we have left. The bottom line is that we're running out of time to get our organization where it needs to be for the final push -- and make-or-break budget decisions are coming up at the end of this week. And, according to our records associated with this email address, you haven't donated to this campaign yet, so, if you've been waiting for the...

    As a Florida medical examiner tries to determine how 32-year-old Edward Archbold died after eating insects during a contest to win a snake, people around the country are asking: Why? Authorities said Archbold became ill soon after winning and collapsed in front of the Ben Siegel Reptile Store where the contest was held. The store is in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. Archbold was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The grand prize in Friday night's contest was a live python. Why would anyone eat a live cockroach? Why did he die Friday when...

    Abound Solar filed for bankruptcy in June 2012, but the Department of Energy is still protecting their trade secrets, reports the Colorado Watchdog. The Colorado Watchdog filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Energy in early August — about six weeks after Abound’s bankruptcy — asking for all testing data on solar modules produced by the company. The response Colorado Watchdog got was a bunch of test pages with all the relevant data redacted. “Abound Solar has substantial commercial interest in protecting the release of the redacted confidential module test data within the responsive records, since...

    n a forceful and succinct speech on Monday at the Virginia Military Academy, Mitt Romney laid out the clear differences between his foreign policy views and those of President Obama. In actuality, he did much more than that. He demonstrated that between the two of them, only he understands the nature of the world we live in. Obama, starting with his apologetic speech in Cairo in 2009, has been guided by the notion that the force of his own personality and his Muslim ties, along with the pulling back of U.S. leadership from the international community would pacify radical Islamists...

He says the transition to civilian life has gone well, but admits it hasn't always been easy. "You build a wall and you're kind of hard-headed," said Midgley. "Military...

    First came the nausea. Then came the anxiety. After months of watching Mitt Romney twist in the media glare, a growing number of President Barack Obama’s supporters — though confined for now to a noisy minority of liberals — are peering into the Obama-might-actually-lose abyss for the first time after last week’s disastrous first debate. Some progressives seem to be going into primal panic mode — to the profound annoyance of the Democratic professional political class and an Obama campaign predicting a rebound at next Tuesday’s debate in Long Island. “That’s my party: Irrational overconfidence followed by irrational despair,” quipped...

He had already experienced the lottery of death among the chain gangs on the Burma-Siam Railway. Now things were even worse. Accused of being a spy, he had been left to the mercies of the Japanese army’s secret police. Among their specialities was what is today known as ‘waterboarding’, when a prisoner undergoes near-drowning. It was surely only a matter of time before he would be put out of his misery.

While Firefox has long positioned itself as browser for users, the focus since moving to the rapid release train cycle has clearly shifted – towards developers. I personally think that's a good thing because it's not something that any other major browser vendor does. The Mozilla focus on developers means that developers will use Firefox more than other browsers. If developers use it more, I suppose that the prevailing notion is that they will also...
