    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- In the U.S. government's biggest crackdown to date on a hacktivist group calling itself "Anonymous," four leaders and one other activist were arrested Tuesday and charged with a computer hacking conspiracy. The U.S. Department of Justice also revealed Tuesday that it had snared the prime leader of an Anonymous offshoot group called LulzSec, which conducted a high-profile, two-month hacking rampage last summer against corporate and government targets. -snip- What particularly set the movement on edge was the conviction and apparent turning of the LulzSec leader Hector Xavier Monsegur, known by his hacker alias Sabu.

    MSNBC Info-Babe to Congressman: ‘Do you have a degree in economics?’ ‘Yes ma’am, I do. Highest honors’ MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, you may remember just yesterday said the attack on Rupert Murdoch at a hearing encapsulated what the British were feeling. Today, Contessa “educated” a conservative Representative that if Congress does not raise the debt raising, the country would be “reverting into a depression.” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he disagreed which prompted the MSNBC host to ask him if he had a degree in economics.“Yes ma’am, I do. Highest honors,” Rep. Brooks responded.According to his Congressional page: “Mo graduated from...

This particular lawsuit targeted Wayne Hoehn, who posted an entire editorial from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and its headline, “Public Employee Pensions: We Can’t Afford Them” on a website medjacksports.com. Hoehn was not an employee of the site.

    U.S. immigration bosses wreck 9-year-old British boy’s dream trip to Disneyland Like any normal nine-year-old, meeting Mickey Mouse and friends at Disneyland would have turned Micah Strachan's birthday into the fairytale he had only ever dreamed of. But a surprise trip, arranged by his grandparents, was cruelly dashed when U.S. immigration officials turned him away - because they claimed he was a flight risk. Kathy and Edward Francis spent months planning every detail of the 'holiday of a lifetime' to Florida to celebrate grandson Micah's tenth birthday.

    The president of Argentina has described the Royal Navy as pirates and accused the British government of behaving like an imperial power with regard to the Falkland Islands. Argentina's president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner used Twitter, the micro-blogging website, to sharply criticise plans by the Ministry of Defence to carry out military tests in the region. In a series of frank postings on her official Twitter account, she announced that Argentina had complained to the United Nations about Britain's "militarisation of the South Atlantic". "Serious, very serious," Mrs Kirchner wrote. "Royal Navy, occupying colonial force in...

    A Boaz woman trying to retaliate against the person who repossessed her car got burned in the process. Literally. Authorities say Haleigh Elizabeth Boland, 26, accidentally set herself on fire while she was torching the car of the person who had taken hers. To make matters worse, the entire incident was caught on tape. "It was just a big act of foolishness all the way around," said Etowah County Sheriff's spokeswoman Natalie Barton. The incident happened May 8 when authorities said Haleigh Boland and her father, Benny Gene Boland, 50, went to a home on Carlisle Cut-Off Road in the...

    A former Adelaide mayoress left her daughters just $1.50 each from her $3.5 million estate because she believed they plotted to kill her mother. Valmai Roche died last year aged 81 and stated in her will that her daughter's should be left "30 pieces of silver of the lowest denomination" — or 30 five cent pieces, the Adelaide Advertiser reports. Daughters Deborah Hamilton, Fiona Roche and Shauna Roche were also left jewellery from Ms Roche's collection on condition they correctly answered questions relating to their mother's personal diaries. Two of the daughters are challenging the will in the South Australian...

    An Acura forum member posted an idiotic screed about his wife's jealousy of his car, an Acura TL. His wife found it, hacked his account and used it to divorce him. Men complaining about their wives on car forums is about as common as old men complaining about kids trampling their yards. That's why this particular example, an Acura TL owner on the car forum Acurazine, is particularly egregious and stupid. In fact, it was so bad, other car-loving members of the forum were forced to remind their brother-in-automotive-arms that his beloved car is just a car, and that his...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- More than a dozen parking spaces at a Metropolitan government facility have misspelled words, and no one noticed until Channel 4 pointed it out Friday. Related: Watch This Story The word "owned" is misspelled 16 times in spaces outside the County Clerk's office off French Landing Drive at MetroCenter. It's a parking lot, and most people usually don't pay attention to what's on the ground until something is misspelled. Words on the first three parking spots are spelled correctly, but spot No. 4 is misspelled. It should read "Metro Owned Vehicle Parking Only;" however, someone switched up...
