    The Roomba is generally regarded as a cute little robot friend that no one but dogs would consider to be a potential menace. But for the last couple of years, the robovacs have been quietly mapping homes to maximize efficiency. Now, the device’s makers plan to sell that data to smart home device manufacturers, turning the friendly robot into a creeping, creepy little spy. While it may seem like the information that a Roomba could gather is minimal, there’s a lot to be gleaned from the maps it’s constantly updating. It knows the floor plan of your home, the basic...
  • ‘Lamborghini’ Planned Parenthood Executive Caught Haggling over Baby Organs

    Gatter: '$50’s on the low end, $50 [per specimen] was like 12 years ago'! The costs of baby organs increased dramatically in the last ten years, a Planned Parenthood executive said in video released by the Center for Medical Progress on Wednesday. In 2014, undercover videographers posing as organ procurers captured Planned Parenthood executive Dr. Mary Gatter discussing the cost of "specimens" obtained following abortion. When the pro-life activists mention $50 as the going rate for each specimen, Gatter informs them that costs have jumped over the last decade. "You know, you have to pay a little money to use...

    WHEN I STARTED doing asylum work almost 20 years ago, the comfortable cocoon that had been built around me by the nuns and then Bryn Mawr and then my first few jobs in the courtroom and classroom began to crumble. ~snip~ Asylum work heightens your perception of evil, and at the same time teaches you to expect it in unexpected places. Hannah Arendt once famously talked about the banality of evil, and she was right. It is not just the towering Hitlers, Stalins, Pol Pots, Mao Tse-tungs and Robert Mugabes who are capable of gross inhumanity. The capacity for evil...

    Stem Express It didn’t take long for Stem Express, the California-based company caught buying aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood, to get back in business online. Stem Express, which LifeNews reported offline on Wednesday is back online today—advertising the sale of the same baby livers, Deborah Nucatola so callously went on about during her salad and red wine lunch. Planned Parenthood’s baby livers, advertised by Stem Express, are going for anywhere from $565 to $2433. Hard to believe they’re back so soon. Perhaps Stem Express principals are emboldened by the nepotism of their Planned Parenthood /Republican Party connections.

    Townhall.com ^ | April 17, 2015 | Suzanne Fields
    Joe McGinnis, a young writer who got access to the advertising agency with the Nixon account in 1968, changed the way we thought about electing presidents with his best-seller, "The Selling of the President." The very idea that a presidential candidate could be packaged like a tube of toothpaste, a can of shaving cream or a pack of cigarettes was shocking. Americans held elections as something close to a sacred trust, and the cover of the McGinnis book featured Richard Nixon's face on that pack of cigarettes, suggesting (this was before "Mad Men") that Madison Avenue would stoop even so...
  • Why Is A Saudi Prince Selling Out Of News Corp?[Fox News}

    Forbes ^ | 02/04/15 | Chris Wright
    Few individual investors have quite as much capital to deploy as Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal of Saudi Arabia. Through his Kingdom Holding , he holds significant stakes in companies including Citigroup C -0.41%, Twitter TWTR +1.28% – and, until recently, News Corporation. The Prince hasn’t sold out completely – he still owns about 1% of the company, as well as a separate 6.6% shareholding in 21st Century Fox Inc which in itself is worth about $1.7 billion – but he previously also held 6.6% of News Corp NWSA 0%, or a total of 13.184 million class B shares. He’s shed...

    The biggest misconception that we hear or read about is that "all ivory is ILLEGAL to own, buy or sell". If you believe this statement then I will be selling a beautiful bridge, located in New York, on EBAY next week... no reserve! In the next few paragraphs I have put together a simple summary of the INTERNATIONAL and U.S.FISH & WILDLIFE laws which regulate the commerce of ivory, which in turn is regulated by C.I.T.E.S. (Convention on the International Trade in endangered Species) and the 'Marine Mammal Protection Act'. C.I.T.E.S. is an organization that was formed in 1973 as...
  • Insider Selling At Yelp Is A Non-Issue

    Insider selling in Yelp (YELP) was identified as a concern in a recent SeekingAlpha.com article. In the comment section it was put forward by an apparent Yelp skeptic that these executives could stop the automatic selling in their 10b5-1 trading plans if they really felt the stock is undervalued. In reply, a Yelp defender pointed out that it is "very typical, insider selling at this point... People sell for all kinds of reasons, buying a house, sending kids to college, taking deserved profit to diversify holdings." Indeed one can say there has been significant selling in Yelp but only by...

    Market Watch ^ | 6 February 2013 | Mark Hulbert
    This is worrisome because corporate insiders — officers, directors and the largest shareholders — presumably know more about their companies’ prospects than the rest of us do. If they were confident that the shares of their companies would soon be trading markedly higher, they wouldn’t be selling them now. Yet selling they are — at an alarming pace. snip To be sure, insiders have been selling heavily for several weeks now, and the market has continued to rise — including the Dow’s eclipsing of the 14,000 level in recent sessions. This surprising strength in the face of insider selling has...

    From The Orlando Sentinel: That has prompted NASA to advertise a long list of KSC facilities and equipment as available for use, lease or, in some cases, outright purchase by the right business. Among them: Launch Pad 39A, where shuttles were launched; space in the Vehicle Assembly Building, the iconic 526-foot-tall structure first used to assemble Saturn V-Apollo rockets; the Orbiter Processing Facilities, essentially huge garages where the shuttles were maintained; Hangar N and its high-tech test equipment; the launch-control center; and various other buildings and chunks of undeveloped property. A lot of the stuff needs to be transferred by...

    YouTube ^ | 12/13/11 | Ron Paul Campaign
    The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today the release of its latest ad, 'Selling Access', another two-minute web video aimed at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, calling him out as a corrupt Washington insider who got rich through influence-peddling. The video, which the campaign plans to promote prominently on conservative web sites, includes a clip of Gingrich calling himself an 'insider' and another in which the former Speaker brags about getting paid $60,000-a-speech. The video comes after the viral success of Paul's earlier web ad, 'Serial Hypocrisy', which criticizes Gingrich for many of the same issues.

    Eric Sprott is exchanging $30 million worth of his own gold ETF PHYS for silver at the current 45:1 ratio. Stop whining that silver has not been following gold higher for the past 2 weeks, and use the relative weakness vs gold to add to your silver position professionally like Mr. Sprott. The Sprott Foundation, named after Eric Sprott, announced that it is selling two million units of its Sprott Physical Gold Trust (PHY.U-T15.770.070.45%), worth about $30-million at Wednesday's price.

    Following its admission yesterday that it is now buying oil by telling clients to sell Brent to $105-107 a monther after advising anyone who cares Brent was on its way to $130, today we learn that Goldman is actively dumping its prop, pardon, there we go again, flow, FLOW, inventory of oil equities to idiots, pardon, clients. As to how dropping crude prices and thus collapsing profit margins is beneficial for energy producers, that is one we will long be scratching our heads over. From Arjun Murti: Potential SPR release consistent with expectation of tight oil markets: We recommend buying...

    Recent studies indicate that the number of fathers are unknowingly raising children that aren’t their own; roughly 2% of all fathers in the study are unaware that their wives gave birth to a child conceived with another man. A pretty small number to be sure, but 2% of the roughly 4 million fathers in New York city works out to 80,000 disappointed, angry and humiliated dudes walking around America’s largest city. Why is this suddenly relevant? Because NY drug store chain Duane Reade is now selling do-it-yourself paternity kits. Great. According to CBSNews New York: The do-it-yourself kits are

    La Familia drug cartel is selling not just drugs, but also counterfeit Microsoft Office computer software, according the Redmond, Wash., tech giant. Microsoft showed off unauthorized copies of its Office 2007 software in Paris today which the company said it found for sale in Mexico. The pirated copies of Office were marked with La Familia cartel's rectangular "FMM" logo that the Microsoft says proves the link between the counterfeiting and the organized crime group, according to a Bloomberg report. "This is the real side, the scary side of counterfeiting and it plagues the world," said David Finn, Microsoft's associate general...
