Mobile Browser Vulnerability Allows Sites to Spoof Domain in Address Bar

It's almost completely as bad as it sounds. A website with no DNS whatsoever, reached by IP address, can display as "www.google.com/blahblah..." in your address bar. Tested on latest Chrome on my Nexus 5.

I haven't fact checked this at all, but I've been avoiding these drugs for a long time because I just don't trust them. Everyone always said I was crazy.

Apparently majority opinion does not define truth. Who knew?
 
Common painkiller found to damage mental and emotional wellness http://rgn.bz/mo9Y

Are aches and pains or a headache keeping you from enjoying life? It seems like a harmless solution to a common problem, but grabbing a painkiller like Tylenol to relieve minor pain or fever could do more harm than good.

Researchers have found that over 600 medications pushed by big pharma containing acetaminophen not only cover up symptoms, but also trigger negative emotions and prevent people from feeling positive emotions like, joy. So, most people are left unaware that taking these seemingly ‘harmless’ drugs could be affecting their mental and emotional wellness.

Painkiller has unwanted emotional side effects

In a study published last year in the journal Psychological Science, acetaminophen was found to be not only a pain reliever, but an “emotion reliever” as well. In the trial, half the participants took a dose of 1000 mg of acetaminophen, which is a recommended amount, while the remaining participants were given an inactive placebo.

After allowing about an hour for the medication to take effect, both groups were given identical tests. They viewed a number of photos specially designed to cause various positive and negative emotions. However, the scientists found that participants receiving acetaminophen didn’t react to the same highs or lows as the people who did not. The drug dampened both positive and negative emotions.

The problem this time is that the original research is paywalled. :-( I'll respond to your longer post later, after letting +Alexander Diana have a chance to reply if he wants.

Hey, friends. I'm posting this for a good friend of mine, who is looking to raise some money to save his dog. You can read the details in the campaign. I'd appreciate anything you can do to help him out.

Thanks :)
My name is Elliott, and this is Moya. Moya lived with us on our farm, herding goats and cows, watching the road, and being that extra bit of help we always needed. Last year we sold our farm, leaving us with a farmless farm dog, though a very adaptable one. She's traveled the central US with u...

PSA: Active phishing attack impersonating contacts, DocuSign, Google

I just got an email ostensibly from a contact, asking me to sign a financials document on DocuSign, which linked me to a site asking me to log in to Google. It almost tripped me up (they got my email) except for my handy little browser extension which warned me that there was no https on a password form. In a Google login form, that's obviously not right.

Wire going fully open source! This is a huge step forward for private online communications.

It also brings us one step closer to my dream of chatting on Wire using the Steem blockchain (see https://steemit.com, the platform that gets soccer moms to generate key pairs, use them without ever sending the private key over the network, and not even know it) as the PKI.

I came with a couple friends and had a burger. The food was great, the waitress was good and I liked the ambiance. I particularly appreciated that the table had grinders for the salt and pepper instead of shakers. Fresh ground pepper is just so much better, hahaha.
