  • Trump’s art of war: His campaign’s plan for dropping political ‘thermo nukes’ and suppressing votes

    Yahoo! News ^ | October 14, 2016 | Hunter Walker, National Correspondent
    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump plans to fight fire with fire, as he sees it, in the last 25 days of his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton. Facing a barrage of separate sexual assault allegations, Trump has responded by waging an intense war against the media, the “power structure” and the Clintons. In a pair of interviews with Yahoo News, a high-level Trump campaign source detailed the aggressive strategy, including the “suppression of votes” by Democratic-leaning groups, for the home stretch of the presidential race. “We’re bringing out tactical nukes now, with thermo nukes later,” the source said. Trump’s epic...

    A media executive who was fired from Yahoo last year is suing CEO Marissa Mayer, accusing her of running a campaign to purge the company of male employees. The lawsuit filed by Scott Ard in federal district court in San Jose this week states: 'Mayer encouraged and fostered the use of an employee performance-rating system to accommodate management's subjective biases and personal opinions, to the detriment of Yahoo's male employees.'

    There’s no good reason to have a Yahoo account these days. But after Tuesday’s bombshell report by Reuters, indicating the enormous, faltering web company designed a bespoke email-wiretap service for the U.S. government, we now know that a Yahoo account is a toxic surveillance liability. Reuters’s Joseph Menn is reporting that just last year, Yahoo chose to comply with a classified “directive” to build “a custom software program to search all of its customers’ incoming emails for specific information provided by U.S. intelligence officials” — the NSA in particular. [UPDATE at 10:08 a.m., Oct. 5, 2016: Yahoo has issued a...

    Yahoo Inc last year secretly built a custom software program to search all of its customers' incoming emails for specific information provided by U.S. intelligence officials, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Yahoo scanned hundreds of millions of incoming emails at the behest of U.S. intelligence or law enforcement, according to a report published Tuesday. The internet company conducted the surveillance last year after receiving a classified demand from the National Security Agency or the FBI, Reuters said in its story. The report cited three former Yahoo employees and another unidentified person familiar with the matter. Those individuals told Reuters that the government pushed Yahoo to search for a string of letters, numbers or other characters. That meant the fishing expedition could have involved finding a specific phrase or code in the...

    Top executives at social media giants Facebook and Yahoo have helped "bundle" $113 million for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to newly released campaign donations. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg were part of over 1,100 "elite bundlers" that also include actor Ben Affleck and the chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China. The analysis done by the Center for Public Integrity also found several lawmakers on the Clinton bundler list.

    The National Security Agency paid millions of dollars to cover the costs of major internet companies involved in the Prism surveillance program after a court ruled that some of the agency's activities were unconstitutional, according to top-secret material passed to the Guardian. The technology companies, which the NSA says includes Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and Facebook, incurred the costs to meet new certification demands in the wake of the ruling from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (Fisa) court. The October 2011 judgment, which was declassified on Wednesday by the Obama administration, found that the NSA's inability to separate purely domestic communications from...

So what I was thinking, my editor was thinking was we need to stop for a second, because the film moves along at a really fast clip. So you’ll see that throughout we’ll stop down after something happens or when we present something. The terror watch list is a...

The statue, 'Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant' is in The J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California. 'I am not saying that this is depicting an ancient laptop computer,' said YouTuber StillSpeakingOut. 'But when I look at the sculpture I can't help but think about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information and various aspects.'

If you’re Yahoo!, however, you put “Affirmative Action Hire” or “Easy, Breezy, Covergirl” in your third-rate search engine and hope for the best. What dubious specimen does the search engine spit out? One Marissa Mayer.

    The European Court of Human Rights has set an interesting predcedent for workplace internet use by ruling in favour of a company that accessed its employees personal online communications.

Judges said it was legal because the employer had the right to “check the manner in which its employees complete their professional tasks”. Even though he was using Yahoo Messenger to chat with his fiancee and...

The Republican presidential candidate got some grub, but also something unexpected -- an earful from one patron who was clearly not a fan. "Enjoy your burger, racist!" a young woman shouted from the back of the restaurant before walking out.

    Yahoo said on Wednesday that it had dropped a plan to spin off its $31 billion stake in Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce company. Instead, the company will spin off all of its other assets, including its stake in Yahoo Japan, into a new company. The decision not to sell the Alibaba stake, which was reported on Tuesday, was driven by “the market’s perception of tax risk” associated with the Alibaba plan, Yahoo said in a statement on Wednesday morning.
