Web, mobiles help French plan riots
By : France - Thursday November 10, 2005

Young French rioters are using blogs to incite violence and mobile phones to organise attacks in guerrilla-like tactics they have copied from anti-globalisation protesters, security experts say. So the government is policing cyberspace as well as rundown suburbs in the battle to end two weeks of rioting. Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin has diverted resources to monitoring blogs to anticipate the movements of the protesters, who have set fire to thousands of cars since the unrest (...)

By Eric Hellweg IBM once set one of its Linux commercials on a basketball court. But other than that, the worlds of Big Blue and professional basketball have rarely crossed lanes. This month, though, they were linked by what promises to become one of the most volatile workplace issues of the next decade: genetic testing. After it was revealed that Chicago Bulls star center Eddie Curry had a heart arrhythmia, the Bulls said he’d have to take a DNA test before the organization would (...)

Is Your Printer Spying On You?

Is Your Printer Spying On You? Posted by Donna Wentworth July 24, 2005 Imagine that every time you printed a document, it automatically included a secret code that could be used to identify the printer — and potentially, the person who used it. Sounds like something from an episode of "Alias," right? Unfortunately, the scenario isn’t fictional. In an effort to identify counterfeiters, the US government has succeeded in persuading some color laser printer manufacturers to (...)

E voting Corruption record

FLORIDA’S 2000 nightmare over punch-card ballots caused America to stampede toward purely electronic voting. But this snowballing trend raises two new concerns: vote-stealing could be easier in digitized elections, and several computer balloting firms have shady pasts. Most of America’s e-voting is done on machines purchased from three firms: Diebold Election Systems, Sequoia Pacific, and Election Systems & Software (ES&S). Two of the companies are headed by brothers. (...)

With a plan they call "trusted computing", large media corporations (including the movie companies and record companies), together with computer companies such as Microsoft and Intel, are planning to make your computer obey them instead of you.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
