Little Red Chunari’s willpower is put to the test when she journeys through the jungle to visit her grandparents in this Indian adaptation of the classic Riding Hood tale. Kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy Folk and Bollywood-style dance, puppetry, and stand-up comedy.

Each show will feature live music performed by Austin’s own Sacred Cowgirls, accompanied by the dance by Monsoon Dance and Devi School of Dance.

Whether the FBI and NSA have the legal authority to obtain the master keys that companies use for Web encryption remains an open question, but it hasn't stopped the U.S. government from trying. Read this article by Declan McCullagh on CNET News.

I am just enjoying a cup of coffee, the cool morning air, and the view of my favorite US city skyline... and, oddly enough, was just thinking about this topic.

I said to myself; "why in the HELL isn't +Jason Powell on G+ yet... no, I'm kidding about that part. I was seriously thinking about Psychopaths in industry.

I do believe most of what I've heard put forth on this topic, but I can't believe CEO is really at the top of this list. Maybe if that was qualified as "of F500 companies" I could accept it, but there are SO MANY companies that if we actually included their CEOs; all the small/local business owners, all the socially motivated yet still registered as one of the 'for profit' legal entities, and then all the non-profits (they each have a CEO too) then I just can't believe that the sample set taken that generated this list actually represents the world we actually live in... lawyers, those guys are arseholes... I believe that one.

When you're killed in a vidgame, all you have to do is invoke some power or reboot the damn machine.  Maybe these guys think real lives work that way.
