What could go wrong? // "History tells us that the Galactic Empire destroyed the Terran civilization as an example, after it was learned that the Terran planet's inhabitants had named our capital planet Grumpy Cat."

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

Cutting through all the bull Thought for the Day: The GOP is the party of racists, flat-Earth science deniers, and religious fanatics. This is not to say that every member of the GOP falls into all those categories, just as it isn't fair to assert that every member of the NRA is a #gunfetishist with the blood of a million innocent persons on their hands.

I love how the GOP platform and some of its most vocal personalities are all about denying rights to people, spreading hatred and bigotry, etc, but when you call them out of it, you're the one who's intolerant. Wow.

I take his political rantings about as seriously as I do his role in Anaconda.

Mr. Maazel, who directed the New York Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra and the Vienna State Opera among others, was known for his incisive, sometimes extreme, interpretations.

His Musgorskey recordings with the Cleveland Orchestra were among the first music my daughter heard. I missed his tenure here, but his recordings are excellent.

OK, I have to admit this is rather inspired casting.
NBC is going big for its upcoming live performance of Peter Pan.
