What News Anchors Do During Commercial Breaks

This is goofy for sure, but more than that, it's fun to watch. I get WGN News, so I'm aware of who they are which makes it even better.

Game reviewer strikes back at male stalkers with a brilliant new ploy: Telling their moms



Not sure if you guys are aware of Gamergate, but one girl has gotten proactive and is taking the fight to her tormentors. Would like to see this become a movement and have more girls join in and take control of the situation. Props to Alanah.

This is either a Fail (on his part) or a Win (on her part). I chose Win because of the crowd reaction. With that said, this has to be staged. That's what I'm taking from it. Still.....the moment was great for us to witness anyway.

The sad part is it was hackers.... why couldn't our defense industry do this... long ago.

'Isil is a virus, we are the cure': Hackers say they’ve taken down 100 Isil Twitter accounts

 Hacktivist group Anonymous has delivered a blow to Islamic State by disabling dozens of Twitter accounts it believes are used to recruit fighters.

In an online post titled '#OpISIS' the group lists the Twitter handles of 90 users it has ‘taken offline’ and claims these they are just some of the accounts removed by its team.

The group also lists the full URLs of 12 Facebook users it says are suspected to have been in contact with terrorists in Syria and Iraq, to “keep an eye on”.

Most of the accounts listed are currently suspended or unavailable.

In their online statement Anonymous also issued a warning to Isil, detailing plans to systematically erase and expose their extremist affiliates:

Quote
“We will hunt you, Take down your sites, Accounts, Emails, and expose you... From now on, no safe place for you online... You will be treated like a virus, And we are the cure...”

 The comments were posted on Pastebin - a website used by Anonymous and other hackers to post about their hacks.

The statement also linked to a YouTube video, explaining more about the online attack (watch at the top of the article).

Anonymous reminded Isil that members of their collective hail from from religions and countries all over the world.

"We are Muslims, we are Christians, we are Jews, we are hackers... We come from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity.

"We are hackers, crackers, hacktivists, phishers, agents, spies, or just the guy from next door. We are students, administrators, workers, clerks, unemployed, rich, poor.

"We are young, or old, gay or straight. We wear smart clothes or Uggs. We come from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity. United as one, divided by zero. We are Anonymous".



 They signed off with the promise that there is “More to come soon”.

Anonymous have carried out a number of high-profile cyber attacks in recent months.

They targeted Israeli government websites and briefly brought down the homepage of a Jerusalem-based bank in retaliation for Israeli attacks on Gaza.

The collective took over the official Ku Klux Klan Twitter account and threatened to leak the details of those behind it.

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack the hacktivists vowed to avenge the cartoonists' deaths by shutting down jihadist websites.

Nut rage fallout: Court sentences Korean Air executive to one year in prison

Quote
A Seoul court on Thursday sentenced a former Korean Air executive to a year in prison for aviation law violations that stemmed from her inflight tantrum over how she was served macadamia nuts.

Cho Hyun-ah, the daughter of Korean Air's chairman, achieved worldwide notoriety after she ordered the chief flight attendant off a December 5 flight, forcing it to return to the gate at John F Kennedy Airport in New York.

Head of cabin service at the time of the incident, Cho was angered she had been offered macadamia nuts in a bag instead of on a dish. A heated and physical confrontation with members of the crew in first class ensued.

The court said Cho was guilty of forcing a flight to change its route, obstructing the flight's captain in the performance of his duties and forcing a crew member off a plane. It found her not guilty of interfering with a transport ministry investigation into the incident. Prosecutors had called for three years in prison.

Cho, in custody since December 30, wiped away tears with a tissue as a letter expressing her remorse was read to the court by head judge Oh Seong-woo.

It included details about how Cho, one of the richest women in South Korea who regularly flew first class, was adjusting to the basic conditions in prison and reflecting on her life. "I know my faults and I'm very sorry," Cho said in her letter.

Cho's high-and-mighty behavior, dubbed nut rage, caused an uproar in South Korea. The incident was a lightning rod for anger in a country where the economy is dominated by family-run conglomerates known as chaebol that often act above the law. The sentencing did not entirely douse that outrage: One year in prison is a "bit short," said Jo Young-sang, 24.

Chaebol chiefs convicted of white collar crimes have typically received suspended prison sentences and later on, presidential pardons. Courts have often acknowledged the contribution of such industrialists in transforming South Korea from an economic backwater into a developed economy.

But the Cho case indicates South Korean society is less indulgent of the second and third generation members of high-profile business families. Heirs to fantastic fortunes such as Cho quickly ascend the executive ladder but few believe their rise is based on merit.

"Most second or third generations of chaebol in South Korea think of themselves as members of royal families or in the special aristocratic class. So they think they can do whatever they want," said Yonsei University psychology professor Whang Sang-mi.

In her letter to the court, Cho said she was given only toilet paper, soap and underwear after being detained but was humbled that other prisoners had given her their toiletries.

"People there lent me their toner, lotion, shampoo and rinse. I was so thankful," the letter said. "They didn't ask me anything about this case. I felt that this was indeed being considerate for others."

Oh, the chief judge, said the court took into consideration that Cho's actions undermined the flight's safety, that the flight attendants who were verbally and physically abused are still struggling to return to work and worldwide media reports about the case damaged South Korea's reputation.

"If she were considerate to people, if she didn't treat employees like slaves, if she could have controlled her emotion," said Oh, "this case would not have happened."

But the court also recognized that Cho showed remorse and the airline was making efforts to help the affected flight attendants. Cho's attorney left the court without answering a question about whether she will appeal.

Some South Koreans felt the sentence was inadequate.

"To me, the nut rage incident looked like a rich kid in an elementary school looking down on poor or weak kids," said Chang Sabine, a teacher. "I think she should be doing community service to become mentally matured."

The court sentenced Yeo Woon-jin, a Korean Air executive who pressured employees to lie about the nut rage case, to eight months in prison.

Transport ministry official Kim Woon-sub was found guilty of leaking the ministry's investigation to the airline. He received a six month prison sentence suspended for one year.

Remember This Guy?



What a remarkable turnaround for Rufus "Mr. Bumfight" Hannah! Wow! I actually had a conversation about this guy last week and up until then, I hadn't given much thought to whatever became of the guy since the moment he became "famous" or infamous if you will. So, it's kinda odd that I would get this feed about his whereabouts now.
