    The General Electric-sponsored explanatory website Vox.com is again facing criticism for biased and hostile reporting about Israel following a Wednesday article that accused the Jewish state of committing war crimes against the Palestinians following the murder by Hamas of three kidnapped Israeli teenagers earlier this week. Vox writer Max Fisher accused Israel of waging “collective punishment” against the Palestinians and preferring war to peace following Israel’s targeted military strikes on Hamas terrorists responsible for murdering the children and launching rocket attacks on citizens. Fisher argued that air strikes against Hamas are not justified because the killings were carried out by...

    North Korea's national carrier Air Koryo, which has the lowest airline rating on Skytrax, has discovered the Internet. The state-owned company -- regarded by some as the "world's worst airline" -- recently launched a bilingual website (www.airkoryo.com.kp) to provide travelers with "easier, quicker, reliable booking and ticketing services," according to Air Koryo. Air Koryo's new ticket booking system reinforces the company's less-than-brilliant reputation. After multiple trials to book a one-way ticket from Shengyang to Pyongyang, we failed to secure any reservation. Instead, we ended up with this message day after day: “We cannot find any flights for your flight schedule....

    BOSTON -- Tensions were high at Dewey Square Thursday night when police took Occupy Boston protesters into custody. The confrontation started when a protester allegedly brought a sink into the Occupy Boston encampment.

People then formed a barricade around a police vehicle. A protester told 7News one person was injured, and police confirmed that three people were taken into custody for disorderly conduct.

Advanced technology and Web-savvy citizenry now make it possible for open-source information gathering to rival, if not surpass, the clandestine intelligence produced by government agencies. Indeed, open-source methods have already proved their worth in counter-terrorism. Shortly after September 11, 2001, Valdis Krebs, a security expert, re-created the structure and...

    The Hamas-run web site promoting suicide terrorism to children has been updated with a new illustrated story glorifying a young girl’s suicide attack on the “Zionists”. The story, entitled “A Palestinian Girl's Heroism,” describes how the young girl calmly progresses, step by step, though the planning and execution of the terror attack, in which she dies. In death she is said to be "smiling, lying on the grass, because she died as a Shahida, martyr for Allah, for Palestine." “The illustration with the story on the web shows a young smiling girl with four candles,” a report by Palestinian Media...

    Teheran park 'cleansed' of traces from nuclear site By Con Coughlin, Defence and Security Editor (Filed: 06/03/2006) Iran's Revolutionary Guards have taken the extraordinary step of cutting down thousands of trees in Teheran to prevent United Nations inspectors from finding traces of enriched uranium from a top-secret nuclear plant.

    There's no helping you. This site is now just a diversion -- like a train wreck. This site is inherently for and about raving egomaniacs, and Jim's site policies -- which amount to excluding reality and actual dialogue in favor of political/militaristic pornography -- is conducive to cognitive dissonance, which at the times your worldview is threatened leads you into psychotic breaks (on the political cognitive plane, that is, and just maybe in other realms too). Not to mention that your baseline politics is based in mythology about American demographics, science, economics, ethics etc. You spoonfeed each other in the...

    TROY, Mich. — A judge who sentenced three teenagers to probation for being drunk at their high school prom had them jailed after he saw them drinking and ridiculing him on a Web site one of them created. "I told them, 'If you think this gives me any pleasure, you're wrong,'" Oakland County District Judge Michael Martone said after sentencing the last of the girls, Amanda Senopole, to 10 days in jail last week. "You know, it's just a crying shame," Martone said. "I work my butt off trying to help kids like this, trying to figure out what works....

The remains have since been identified as those of an Aborigine who died up to 1500 years ago. Next...

    CHICAGO (Nov. 12) - Online travel agency Expedia.com said a glitch last week allowed some travelers to book hotel stays in Japan at stunningly low prices and that only some of these reservations would be honored. Expedia.com, run by Expedia Inc., posted incorrect prices for two Hilton International hotels in Japan. Some customers reported prices as low as $2 a night. The agency blamed the mix-up on an "isolated processing incident" at Hilton. A hotel spokeswoman described it as a "technical glitch" on Hilton's side. Expedia said Friday that Hilton would honor some of these bookings and that other customers...
