Because when you think "Roy Moore", you think "Civil Rights Leader".

Wait, sorry, autocomplete failure. I meant to type "Incompetent Lunatic".
The Coalition of African-American Pastors announced Thursday that Moore would receive their inaugural Letter from a Birmingham Jail Courage Award to recognize his "dedication to justice and natural law."

Perfect your photos in a snap with the new Snapseed

With billions of images being uploaded and shared on a daily basis, we want to make it fast and easy for people to perfect their photos. What once required a desktop computer, costly software and hours of editing work, can now be accomplished quickly in a powerful app --  +Snapseed  

The new #Snapseed app gives you the precision and control of professional photo editing software on your phone or tablet. We’ve updated the app in many ways while staying true to our mission of helping everyone easily create extraordinary images. Here are the highlights:

New tools including Lens Blur, Tonal Contrast, intelligent perspective Transform, and Spot Healing

Selectively apply filters and effects to parts of the image using the Brush tool

Non-destructive editing via Stacks allows you to re-edit or undo any change. You can also copy edits from one image to another

Snapseed works with your phone camera shots as well as images from DSLRs, compact cameras, and more.

Get it today as it rolls out on the Play Store http://goo.gl/sQSfLM and the App Store http://goo.gl/irPbd4

This asshole should be in jail on wrongful-death charges, and certainly not allowed to promote his harmful nonsense. (I'd argue that the Clear And Present Danger test for speech restrictions isn't unreasonable in this case.)
Andrew Wakefield, the British scientist and former physician whose discredited research linking autism and immunizations helped launch a worldwide anti-vaccination movement, encouraged Californians Friday to fight back against a state Senate bill that would make childhood vaccinations mandatory. Wakefield’s lecture, full of dark warnings of what could happen to the state’s children and families if vaccines were made mandatory, marked his first f...

This is fascinating (assuming it's accurate). Recovered files apparently make a pretty convincing case that the mastermind behind ISIS is not an Islamist at all, but an Iraqi (Baathist) nationalist seeking to reconquer Iraq, and exploiting religious and cultural issues to do so; the goal was not so much a Caliphate as an East German Stasi-controlled state.
An Iraqi officer planned Islamic State's takeover in Syria and SPIEGEL has been given exclusive access to his papers. They portray an organization that, while seemingly driven by religious fanaticism, is actually coldly calculating.

+John Sweet commented: After binge-watching my way through season one of Daredevil, I think it should have the subtitle, "Punching Your Way to a Better Tomorrow."

Somehow, this classic from 1977 came to mind.

This is the first of six photos by Bill Deane that we’re sharing today to celebrate the 48th anniversary of the first descent of Sotano de las Golondrinas. At 333 meters, Sotano de las Golondrinas is the third deepest free-fall vertical pit in the world (http://buff.ly/1CbyFu4). It was first rappelled for the first time ever by a group of NSS members on April 2, 1967.
