These sorts of things make me sad to be human.
 
NY Police to Stop Spying on Muslims http://b4in.org/p21r

The New York Police Department shut down a special unit operating since 9/11. The unit conducted undercover intelligence gathering operations in local Muslim communities using plainclothesmen.

According to a New York Times report this recently canceled secret program was aimed at placing detectives in Muslim neighborhoods, eavesdropping on conversations and collecting detailed intelligence on local Muslim customs: Social activities, restaurants, prayer, shopping and more.

This decision reflects the changes in the NYPD since the appointment of its new commander, William Bratton. Bratton decided to cancel some of the intelligence gathering programs established since 9/11, programs slammed by civil rights groups and senior FBI officials, who believe that they damaged national security by revealing the law enforcement agencies’ lack of trust in the Muslim community.
The unit carrying out these covert operations was known as the “Demographic Unit.”

Its detectives used to map Muslim communities, locate places frequented by “wearers of Muslim clothes” and record conversations. Linda Sarsour from the New York Arab-American Association said that the demographic unit was a form of psychological warfare conducted against Muslims. “In their documents they note exactly where I live, which restaurants I like and my places of prayer.”

Linda Sarsour met NYPD Commander Bratton and his senior officers recently, including the NYPD’s new intelligence officer John Miller, who told her that the police doesn’t need covert operations to locate places used for prayer and social gathering. Miller announced that the demographic unit will be shut down and all unit detectives reassigned.

Good for you game deverlopers! #standyourground   #dontsuccumb  
Game_Jam was set to be a reality show that followed independent video game developers as they created a game from scratch, but shortly after filming began, the production fell apart. Arcane...

Thank you +Android for this system-level option for annoying ad-type notifications like in the +Redbox app that have no #optout  option.

Yes. Either read the article or at least the last paragraph and do it now.

Called to get a charger for an electric lawnmower. After 90 seconds of ringing to the garden section, the call disconnects on its own. Called back, same thing. Called 3rd time, asked for Customer Service. Got nationwide call center. Asked for part, gave model number, put on hold. 20 sends later someone picks up and says "hello?" Come to find out this new person is Renee and is actually in the store. Repeat everything again. Describe I've already called parts store nearby. Renee interrupts almost every sentence never asks for my model, gives me one part number, and a description for two others. We hang up. I look up part number, and other parts. They have nothing to do with my issue. I call back. Get put on hold. Renee answers, I describe I looked up parts and they're not for my lawnmower. She again interrupts, asks if anyone has told me about the parts store off 104th. I describe that's the same store I told her last time that I already called. I see this is pointless, I ask her name, ask to be transferred to Customer Service (local store). Finally get there. Myra answers, says she's a manager. I start to explain events. She says she'll talk to Renee. I try to continue talking, she expresses disinterest. I give up, and say OK. She says thanks. I say yeah, uh huh. We hang up. Really NOT pleased with the overall level of "service" from ALL Three of the women I spoke with. (Call center, Renee, Myra)

Well, I was surprised that this "store" is just a Kiosk in the middle of the walkway of the mall. Looks like a small bar where one would walk up and instead of getting a drink, one would play with a Surface tablet. Only thing that stood out as weird was that their whole show seems to be only about the Surface. The guys said they have other stuff, but none of it is on display. It also really has a "store" feel to it. Not very technical when it comes to some questions asked... so that was a little disappointing.

Awesome burger! Knife was dirty. Waiter was a little (exteremely) absent-minded. Got asked the same question about 3-4 times on a few different things. Atmosphere gets loud before a show, and people definitely start drinking... Overall, the food is great, but the cost and the atmosphere will make me hesitate a little before the comedy show...

DO NOT HAVE YOUR BRAKES DONE HERE. After them claiming heat spots were from slamming on the brakes all the time (which doesn't happen) to them wanting to charge me an additional $100 + for a HARDWARE KIT?! (3-5 bucks at any local auto parts store), they were agitated when I told them no and became very unfriendly with the whole process. I decided I'll do my brakes this time around. (this time I have the time to do them right). Come to find out, they put RED lock tight on both of the bolts that hold the calipers on, on both sides of the car. (Red lock tight is an adhesive for bolts that you never intend on removing, while blue lock tight would be for a temporary hold. A friend of mine that used to work in auto repair, suggested this is a known "f-you" kind of move that mechanics will do when they're screwing with the customer. Also, they put the wrong kind of pads on and didn't machine the rotors, so my pads were chewing away at the rotors instead of the pads being what wore down like normal. I will never recommend this Just Brakes (which is part of the Tires Plus building).

Absolutely NOTHING open to the public. VERY big disappointment. The lady at the desk said we could sample the games they had out for only a few minutes. But only because I asked. No tours, and oh... NO PICTURES... not even of the little metal Mario business card holder at the receptionist. Don't make a special trip to visit here, you'll get shunned away like you're too insignificant to matter.

This place will definitely be on my list of options when trying to figure out dinner... I tried the Tokyo Bowl, and thought it was quite tasty :) The egg rolls had an odd flavor, so I don't think I'll be getting those here again. But I will be coming back for more!

I'm in the Thornton area; it's ~a half-hour drive to get down here to get some Chinese, but it is DEFINITELY worth it! I am NEVER disappointed with anything I've gotten here. Food quality is 50x times BETTER than Heaven Dragon up in Thornton. If you like Sesame chicken, get the combo style (egg roll + rice) with the white meat. You won't have it like that anywhere else. (Then you won't want to have it anywhere else :-)
