It's that time of year again, so I've made another selection of YouTube playlists for the TripleJ Hottest 100 Voting List.

The end of the year is a giving season for many (I suppose a cynical economist might think tax deductions has something to do with it). Most of us like to make sure we’re making well-researched and wise decisions when it comes to our money, be it reading the online reviews before a purchase or investing our savings. By contrast, donating to charities can seem like a “black box.” Many of us our rely on what feels right or seek out an organization ...

As loyal Passport readers know, the United States and New Zealand have been locked in a bitter Cold War since 1985, when New Zealand denied port access to a U.S. destroyer because it could not determine whether the ship was armed with nuclear weapons. (New Zealand has a strictly enforced nuclear-free policy.) The United States has prohibited New Zealand ships from using its ports ever since. The spat flared earlier this year when New Zealand ship...

"internet service providers (ISPs) would be legally required to be able to preserve and store data for up to 180 days when served a notice by participating foreign nations" - At least a warrant is required if they ever want to access the stored data.
