    Marcus Williams missed the important tackle in the New Orleans Saints¬í season, allowing Stefon Diggs to score a miraculous touchdown and send the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship Game next week. After the game, the amateur editors at Wikipedia had their say. Pro Wrestling Walrus @RasslinWalrus Oh my god, the Wiki trolls already got poor Marcus Williams of the #Saints. ūü§£ūü§£ 8:16 PM - Jan 14, 2018 ¬ďEasiest tackle in football history?¬Ē We¬íll leave that to your opinion, but Williams did have the chance to send the Saints to the next round of the playoffs. The Saints¬í second-round draft...
  • "Nazism" as per wikipedia

    08/15/2017 7:52:22 AM PDT · by bryan999 · 25 replies
    National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ňąn…Ďňźts…™z…ôm, ňąn√¶-/[1]), is the ideology and set of practices associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party, Nazi Germany, and other far-right groups. Sometimes characterised as a form of fascism that incorporates scientific racism and antisemitism, Nazism's development was influenced by German nationalism (especially Pan-Germanism), the V√∂lkisch movement and the anti-communist Freikorps paramilitary groups that emerged during the Weimar Republic after Germany's defeat in First World War.

    In Europe, Europe Day is an annual celebration of peace and unity in Europe. There are two separate designations of Europe Day: 5 May for the Council of Europe, and 9 May for the European Union (EU).[1] The latter is the EU's flag day and has a greater visibility. The Council of Europe's day reflects its own establishment in 1949, while the European Union's day is also known as Schuman Day and celebrates the historical declaration by French foreign minister Robert Schuman in 1950.[2] Europe Day is one of a number of European symbols designed to foster unity among Europeans.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. intelligence community on Tuesday unveiled its own secretive version of Wikipedia, saying the popular online encyclopedia format known for its openness is key to the future of American espionage. The office of U.S. intelligence czar John Negroponte announced Intellipedia, which allows intelligence analysts and other officials to collaboratively add and edit content on the government's classified Intelink Web much like its more famous namesake on the World Wide Web. A "top secret" Intellipedia system, currently available to the 16 agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community, has grown to more than 28,000 pages and...
  • Study reveals bot-on-bot editing wars raging on Wikipedia's pages

    02/24/2017 9:26:57 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 10 replies
    Since Wikipedia launched in 2001, its millions of articles have been ranged over by software robots, or simply ďbotsĒ, that are built to mend errors, add links to other pages, and perform other basic housekeeping tasks. In the early days, the bots were so rare they worked in isolation. But over time, the number deployed on the encyclopedia exploded with unexpected consequences. The more the bots came into contact with one another, the more they became locked in combat, undoing each otherís edits and changing the links they had added to other pages. Some conflicts only ended when one or...

    American Thinker ^ | February 17, 2017 | Jonas Naeyeart
    Editor’s note:   A fine piece of journalism on the takeover of Wikipedia by leftist thought police, intent on purging any availability through it of certain dangerous conservative sources. Our satirist friend Oleg Atbashian of the People’s Cube suffered banishment because the last thing leftists have is a sense of humor about themselves.  Because of his suppression, he was contacted by a journalist from a Dutch language Belgian news site in Brussels called Spectr. That writer, Jonas Naeyaert, produced the article below, translated into English, through the efforts of Oleg and a Dutch-speaking friend with the help of Google Translate: Wikipedia...

    Wikipedia has barred citations of The Daily Mail after editors of the online encyclopedia concluded Wednesday that the British tabloid is ďgenerally unreliable.Ē The decision came after a spirited, years-long debate over the Daily Mailís credibility among Wikipediaís active community of volunteer editors. The editors explained Wednesday that the decision stemmed from ďthe Daily Mailís reputation for poor fact checking, sensationalism, and flat-out fabrication.Ē As a result, the Daily Mail and its online offshoot have been ďgenerally prohibitedĒ as a reference on Wikipedia, ďespecially when other more reliable sources exist.Ē [Ö] Such a move is unusual for Wikipedia, which has...

    Sure, Wikipedia is good for easy-to-digest information about any topic your heart desires, but itís also good for pranks against public figures. This weekís victim was Paul Ryan, by way of the Wikipedia page for invertebrates. As per the pageís definition, ďinvertebrates are animals that neither possess nor develop a vertebral column (commonly known as a backbone or spine),Ē and for a brief period of time on Thursday, this included Ryan. Estimated members of described species: One. The Wikipedia page ó as first spotted by BuzzFeedís Alp Ozcelik Ė has since been edited and no longer includes Ryanís headshot wedged...

    As we pointed out last year in our social media series, the neutralization of non-leftist perspectives by the gatekeepers of the worldís most popular websites is rapidly shrinking the sphere of acceptable public debate. While European countries-as well as Canada-are using the state itself to suppressing dissenting views, there is also parallel effort by these siteís owners-and in the case of Wikipedia, its users-to erase inconvenient truths. A concrete illustration of this phenomenon occurred recently, when The Peopleís Cube-a satirical conservative website-had its Wikipedia entry deleted. The fact that it had received extensive national coverage over the course of its...

    Friday on MSNBC when asked about the thousands of emails released by WikiLeaks from a hack of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clintonís campaign chairman John Podesta, Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX) mistakenly denounced the free online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, instead of WikiLeaks. Jackson Lee said, ďYou know, Iím going to first of all denounce the utilization of this intrusion by Wikipedia through the Russian intrusion. This is what itís about. Espionage just like what was said over these last couple of days. We need to be concerned about the intrusion of Russia and Putin in these elections.Ē

    Perhaps the greatest part of living in the current year is the access our civilization has to a virtually limitless supply of information. Although many refuse to take advantage of it, the fact is that we are living during an era which is unprecedented for acquiring and transmitting knowledge at light speed, which I-as someone who narrowly missed out on being a millennial-can appreciate. From the Khan Academy, to more structured online universities, to Web tutorials on how to construct 3D models, there is no domain of expertise concealed from anyone with a reliable Internet connection and a morsel of...

    PARIS -- Remember the Occupy Wall Street movement? The 2011-2012 protests sought to bring Arab Spring-type "revolutions" to the United States through a combination of urban camping and complaining loudly about the state of the world. The Occupy movement fizzled out because it failed to translate the whining into political action. Hey, Occupiers, it only took a few years, but your ride is finally here. You can't miss it -- it's a Boeing 757 with "TRUMP" in gold letters. Here's why Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is the guy you've been waiting for. -- Trump is denouncing Wall Street from...

    VANCOUVER - A 28-year-old woman who once accused a swim coach at Simon Fraser University of harassment in a milestone case linked to the downfall of the school's president has herself been charged with criminally harassing a 52-year-old man. Rachel Marsden, a one-time assistant to TV news anchor Connie Chung, made a brief appearance yesterday in provincial court where her lawyer negotiated her release after a night in custody. A sombre Ms. Marsden agreed to terms that include the payment of $10,000 and agreements to not contact the alleged victim as well as members of his family. She is also...

    Canadians and the War on Terror: No, Mr. Goldberg. We are not "Wimps!" By: Rachel Marsden The most recent issue of National Review featured members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on horseback, decked out in ceremonial red surge, with the word "Wimps!" emblazoned in blue across the cover. Inside the issue, Jonah Goldberg ponders, at great length, Canada's "whiny and weak anti-Americanism." He then goes on to label the country "Jean Chrťtien's Canada", and to suggest that Canadians are hell-bent on opposing, as a mere matter of reflex, every action that America happens to take and every position that...

Maybe she was breathing too hard on Shep Smith. (Always barking up the wrong trees, that gal!) Or, uh, maybe she wasn't feeling well and they were taking her to a car. Yeah... that. Anyway, DEVELOPING!
