    Google has been flooded with 2.4 million requests from individuals and companies across Europe to be “forgotten” — that is, wiped clean from any Web search. Most of the requests came from regular Joes wanting sensitive information — like their home address or personal photos or videos — removed from any Google search results, the company said in its annual transparency report released on Tuesday. But among the others looking to take advantage of Europe’s 2014 “right to be forgotten” law were 41,213 requests from celebrities and 33,937 requests from politicians, Google said in the report. The law, enacted by...

  • Russia Adopts Law Giving Internet Users the 'Right to Be Forgotten'(Bait & Hook)

    07/03/2015 9:20:00 AM PDT · by Enlightened1 · 6 replies
    Russia's parliament gave its final approval on Friday to a law that would require Internet search engines to remove users' personal information from their results. The bill, passed by the State Duma lower house in its third reading, seeks to emulate European Union rules on the "right to be forgotten," under which search engines must take down certain results that appear under a search of a person's name. Under the new Russian legislation, Internet users will have the right to request the removal of information that is incorrect or "no longer relevant because of subsequent events or actions," TASS news...

  • Google Is Being Forced To Censor The History Of Merrill Lynch — And That Should Terrify You

    Business Insider ^ | 7/3/2014 | Jim Edwards
    The European Union's new law giving people a "right to be forgotten," which requires Google to remove links to information about them, is having exactly the effect its critics predicted: It is censoring the internet, giving new tools that help the rich and powerful (and ordinary folk) hide negative information about them, and letting criminals make their histories disappear. Exhibit A: Google was required to delete a link to this BBC article about Stan O'Neal, the former CEO of Merrill Lynch. O'Neal led the bank in the mid-2000s, a period when it became dangerously over-exposed to the looming mortgage crisis....

    In a town in western Ireland, where castle ruins pepper green landscapes, there’s a six-foot stone wall that once surrounded a place called the Home. Between 1925 and 1961, thousands of “fallen women” and their “illegitimate” children passed through the Home, run by the Bon Secours nuns in Tuam. Many of the women, after paying a penance of indentured servitude for their out-of-wedlock pregnancy, left the Home for work and lives in other parts of Ireland and beyond. Some of their children were not so fortunate. More than five decades after the Home was closed and destroyed — where a...

    In the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan... Just in case you forgot, Americans are STILL fighting and dying in two overseas wars, and innocent civilians continue to die in horrible ways. I can see how this could slip your mind, as you will no longer see ANY mention of these, AT ALL, on any alphabet network evening news shows. The "Daily Death Count Update's!" on the 30 minute network news broadcasts ENDED on Nov 4, the day Obama was elected. With a Democrat in the White House, American Soldier Deaths are no longer even WORTH reporting, as they now have...

    According to ABC News, officials there have granted bin Laden amnesty. As long as he leads a “peaceful life,” bin Laden can remain free in Pakistan, said Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan Khan. Reuters confirms that the Pakistani military has agreed to pull out of the tribal region along the Afghan border where bin Laden is believed to have found sanctuary. In exchange, al-Qaida and the Taliban reportedly have agreed to stop attacking military outposts reluctantly set up in response to heavy pressure from the White House. The Pakistani army is also returning captured Taliban weapons and prisoners and dismantling newly...

    WASHINGTON, April 18, 2006 – Children in military families make sacrifices and serve their country as much as anyone in uniform does, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said here today. "In so many loving ways, our children quietly shoulder part of the burden, making their mom or dad understand that what they are doing is important," Marine Gen. Peter Pace said in an interview with the Pentagon Channel and American Forces Press Service. Military parents often have to miss holidays and special occasions, and children are left home to worry while parents go on difficult missions, Pace...

    Get out of the way... he hasn't forgotten By Roger Highfield, Science Editor (Filed: 16/02/2006) The reputation that elephants have for never forgetting has been given a chilling new twist by experts who believe that a generation of pachiderms may taking revenge on humans for the breakdown of elephant society. The New Scientist reports today that elephants appear to be attacking human settlements as vengeance for years of abuse by people. In Uganda, for example, elephant numbers have never been lower or food more plentiful, yet there are reports of the creatures blocking roads and trampling through villages, apparently without...

    ANNAPOLIS — When their son was deployed to Iraq two years ago, Martin "Marty" Horn and his wife, Suzanne, started sending him packages from their home in La Plata. They soon found he was sharing them with soldiers in his unit who were not receiving mail, so the Horns started sending packages to these soldiers as well. Today that simple gesture has become a Web site, AnySoldier.com, that helps packages and letters reach almost half the soldiers deployed in Iraq, or about 95,000 troops, according to the Web site. "It's about increasing the morale of troops. It's about support, not...
