If, like me, you've grappled with the US Visa process, this will make your blood boil. A company in Virginai which processes thousands of H-1B visas, but which uses some shady practices to do so.

Interesting comparing the low-fi and very public comms methods of European jihadis using social media like ask.fm to stay in touch with home & recruit (http://www.vocativ.com/01-2014/im-social-media-jihadi-syria-ama/) with the much more technical stuff that they're creating to avoid detection (http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/how-jihadists-use-the-internet) The ask.fm conversation is fascinating, worth scrolling through in its entirety.

Very unique take from +Judith Dubin on how elements of Syria's middle class are thriving because of, rather than in spite of, the conflict there.

Fascinating online conversations between European jihadis and those who want to follow them to Syria.

Hello folks. Interesting video here allegedly showing an ISIS-run prison in Idllib. This is the earliest one I could find of it. We'll have someone translate it here in-house in the morning. The earliest appearance doesn't link to any known group or Facebook, page, which makes me think there are probably more versions under a different title. Thoughts? Also: Good to be back in the O.N. =) ‫الجيش الحر يقتحم مقرات داعش ويدخل سجونها في ادلب

Paul's a punisher, but he knows his stuff. You won't get more value out of an hour in a gym anywhere else - try the Saturday/Sunday strongman classes, insane value for money. Be prepared to ache.
