    ... When a new Barna survey asked U.S. adults if they ever get in arguments on social media, more than half (55%) say never. A quarter (24%) say it’s a rare occurrence, while one in five argue online at least sometimes (21%)... Along party lines, Republicans (8%) and Democrats (5%) are more likely to report frequent disagreements than Independents (.4%),.. three out of 10 (30%) full-time workers report arguing online at least sometimes, far more than the retired (12%) or unemployed (10%). Interestingly, parents with young children at home are five times as likely as those with no children under...

    Saudi Arabia rolled out the red carpet for US President Donald Trump on his inaugural overseas trip, but a moment involving a glowing orb had observers scratching their heads. Trump attended the opening of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology on Sunday alongside his host, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, reported the state-run Saudi Press Agency. As the lights dimmed, the three leaders officially "activated" the new center by placing their hands on an illuminated globe as a four-minute introduction video displayed on large screens behind them, according to local media.
  • Google’s left-wing bias steers users to vicious articles trashing the late Roger Ailes

    Canada Free Press ^ | 05/22/17 | Matthew Vadum
    Google is by far the most used search engine in the world. Think about that. Left-wingers seem to hate the late Roger Ailes, who died May 18 at 77, more than they hate any other conservatives or Republicans. This hatred manifests itself in Google’s search results which are dramatically skewed in favor of articles attacking the extremely influential founder of Fox News, Ian Miles Cheong of Heat Street discovered. (See screen grab of search results above.)
  • #BrockGate: Playbook Shows Media Matters Has Access to Raw Data From Facebook, Twitter, and More

    Following yesterday's exploration of the #BrockGate documents and our look at Media Matters' "Trump War Room", new findings indicate that Media Matters has access to the raw data of numerous social media platforms, plus the power to influence their understanding on what is and isn't "fake news." The following is an excerpt from page 10 of the #BrockGate document: "Media Matters has already secured access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. We have also put in place the technology necessary to automatically mine white nationalist message boards and alt-right communities for our archive. We will...
  • EXCLUSIVE: A Look Inside The Chat Room The Deep State Uses To Fight Trump

    The possible existence of a subversive American “deep state” has captivated the attention of political observers and supporters of President Trump for months, and for the first time, evidence has allegedly surfaced that casts a light on the shadowy operations of a group many claim is working to bring down the Presidency. This information comes as President Trump is battling his worst week in Washington so far. In the past seven days, a constant stream of leaks and unsourced stories have sent the Trump White House into a tail-spin, and calls for his impeachment have grown. On Wednesday night, just...

  • We're up, but still have some problems

    John says we're up but we still have some configuration problems, but they're going to have to wait until he gets home (3 hours). His laptop is not working and the only way he can get in is by his phone and that's giving errors. He's afraid others on mobile devices may be getting errors too. We're on a new version of the db software now and apparently there are some compatibility issues. And we're sporting some new drives including a new SSD (solid state) drive. Should be working pretty good after he works out the configuration problems, then he...
  • NHS left reeling by cyber-attack: ‘We are literally unable to do any x-rays’

    Guardian UK ^ | 12 May 2017 | Kevin Rawlinson
    Thousands of patients across England and Scotland have been in limbo after an international cyber-attack hit the NHS, with many having operations cancelled at the last minute. Senior medics sought to reassure patients that they could be seen in the normal way in emergencies, but others were asked to stay away if possible. According to one junior doctor who works in a London hospital, the attack left hospitals struggling to care for people. “However much they pretend patient safety is unaffected, it’s not true. At my hospital we are literally unable to do any x-rays, which are an essential component...

    Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica is facing an 85 percent computer shut down after hackers infiltrated its systems demanding $550,000 in Bitcoin. As local news resource El Mundo and others report, the attack, which occurred earlier Friday, has resulted in most staff abandoning their positions and nine out of 10 company machines infected. Hackers are demanding a payment of $300 per machine, roughly equal to 300 Bitcoins currently worth around 510,000 euros. Telefonica is a multinational corporation, subsidiaries of which include major European mobile operator O2, Movistar and Vivo. “The origin of the infection is not confirmed at the moment, but...
  • Chairman Ajit Pai is draining the FCC Swamp

    The Washington Examiner ^ | May 9, 2017 | Timothy H. Lee
    If you're wondering where the Washington, D.C., swamp is being drained as promised, look no further than the Federal Communications Commission and intrepid new Chairman Ajit Pai. For eight long years, the Obama administration circumvented our deliberative democratic process to impose laws via administrative fiat and his infamous "pen and phone." And no agency illustrated that malfeasance more than the FCC, where former Chairman Tom Wheeler in particular rammed through partisan policies and midnight regulations of dubious legality, often suffering the wrath of an unamused judicial branch for its shenanigans. Chief among those Obama FCC misdeeds was its relentless and...

    It's nearing bedtime for Asher Huzar, but on a Tuesday night at 7:30 he ducks the rules, wriggles out from the dinner table and disappears to the basement for playtime. By the time his father, Nick Huzar, checks in on him, 3-year-old Asher has inflated his indoor bounce house, which provides him and his sister, Ava, with 15 minutes of entertainment before they pinball onto the next activity. Raising kids can be taxing, but at least for Huzar and his wife it has been relatively inexpensive. He bought the bounce house secondhand for $100. Huzar then points to Ava's princess...
  • Pepe the Frog became a hate icon so his creator killed him off

    Pepe the Frog is dead, killed off by his own creator after he watched Pepe turn from a wholesome meme into a symbol co-opted by neo-Nazis for the alt-right. Pepe was created by cartoonist Matt Furie back in 2006 for his comic Boy's Club, but after everything that has happened to Pepe in the last year (including its official recognition as a symbol of hate by the Anti-Defamation League), Furie put Pepe in a coffin in a page-long strip published today, Comic Book Resources reported. In an essay published by Time in October, Furie wrote about how Pepe was never...

    I work in IT in south Alabama. There are major network outages being reported by cell carriers, such as AT&T and Verizon. Other carriers are reporting it too. The maps show all of the Eastern seaboard from just south of Maine all the way to the bottom of Florida and the southeast United States plus major parts of California and Nebraska. We don't know exactly what is going on and I am not trying to alarm anyone but this is what I know at this point.

    I wanted to do a search on what the content of the budget agreement was between Congress that is all in the news today. I wanted specifics. So I went on Google, and then on Bing, and then finally on Duckduckgo. What was so bothersome to me was that the top rated search items were all "Fake News". Nearly every single one. Yet the links to find the absolute content of the bill is located on pages 674 etc. Why is this so. I ask the FR audience to try it yourself. Type in Trump and budget, and april. Then...
