Under #ECPA  today, the government may access the content of your communications without a warrant beginning 180 days after receipt of the message. The ECPA Amendments Act of 2015 (S.356) would require the government to obtain a warrant in all cases where it wants companies like Google to disclose the content of users' communications.

One In Four Americans Think The Sun Orbits The Earth

By +Chris York

Regardless of whether everything written in this article is true or not, treating our fellow creatures humanely is not a bad idea.

Copyright vs free speech: #TPP will take away basic rights if ratified - deeper & broader than #ACTA in bad ways
Through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), US corporatists are aiming to exert their legal control globally, by backing a move to extend intellectual property (IP) laws. But according to Snowden leaks, the move will come at the cost of free speech.

On the plus side: the food is actually quite nice and the staff are friendly and attentive. However... when it comes to your bill, this can sometimes take as long as you spend eating, before they can be bothered getting around to working out what you owe them. Occasionally they offer you a free round of complimentary drinks, which is great, but mostly unwanted, as you'd sooner have just paid your bill and left after finishing, rather than sit around, bored for 40 mins, waiting for them to get their act together and give you your bill. If you order the nobi nagar, which is supposed to contain "ghost chilli", what you actually get is a generic dish that they try and big up with chilli extract, to increase the heat. If you check with the waiter before ordering and tell them you'll happily pick something different if fresh ghost chillis aren't available, they will always tell you they have fresh ghost chilli. Unfortunately, they never have. If you complain afterwards, they will promise to give you the correct dish next time, but they never do. They have also suggesteed ordering a phall, but I've tied telling them it's not about heat, but the TASTE and I want to taste ghost chillis, but they don't seem to understand this, so it never makes a difference. My last visit was 19th March 2016 and I will not go there again as they have lied about this dish at least five times now. I am considering complaining to trading standards to be honest, as I wonder what else they have advertised on the menu that isn't what you get when it's served. There are a number of great places to eat Indian food in Macclesfield. Ufortunately, although Lazeez does produce some really nice food, it is no longer one of the places I would consider, as they have repeatedly let me down and lied to me about this dish. Ghurka Dining is now top of my list, followed by Aroma Spice. Neither of them big up ghost chillis, but at least they're honest about what they serve.
