I had problems with R14 and I hope  they are fixed..  Palm sync and PIM reminders did not work.  That combination left me without any reminders and I reverted to the older branch.  R14 promises to run without a special environment and complete compatibility with KDE4 because they renamed the processes.  That will make things less touchy and easier to use.

"Saving" Kids by Jailing Them  Another stupid case.

If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide, right?  
The 56 Dean Street clinic emailed nearly 800 HIV-positive patients, failing to hide their email addresses. BuzzFeed News spoke to two shocked patients on the list.

DHS, Pentagon, and other federal agencies are only too happy to use "stolen" documents when that means screwing employees.  If you believe what they said about documents stolen from Stratfor or the NSA, just having the Ashley Madison documents is a crime.  Harassing or firing employees over their name showing up on a list is just stupid.  
 
'If the government is going to be consistent, it can do two things, in my view. It can either drop all of these witch-hunt investigations into federal employees with Ashley Madison accounts right now, or it can release from prison immediately a federal inmate named Barrett Brown.'

Solar and Wind already cheaper than Fossil Fuels.  That's good news.
 
One of the major talking points of opponents of sustainable energy is that if you include fixed manufacturing costs, solar and wind are not competitive with fossil fuels.  These opponents used this rhetoric to stymie investments in sustainables R&D during the first decade of this century.  But rates of efficiency have been skyrocketing and costs plummeting.  One of the big solar module manufacturers, Trina Solar, said costs had fallen 19 per cent in the past year, and would continue to fall by at least 5 per cent to 6 per cent a year in coming years as efficiencies were improved.”  This study shows that renewables turn out already  to be cheaper than fossil fuels.
 
Those who fought so hard to delay this day are proved to have been morons or worse, who harmed us all.

Some Much Needed Reforms  A remaining problem is trusting the device makers and agents to obey the law this time.  Even if the agents are honest, non free software can rook them.  It is difficult to trust either the FBI or the device makers after their prior behavior.  
At long last, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced a slew of much-needed policy changes regarding the use of cell-site simulators. Most importantly, starting today all federal law enforcement agencies—and all state and local agencies working with the federal government—will be required to obtain a search warrant supported by probable cause before they are allowed to use cell-site simulators. EFF welcomes these policy changes as long...

this is a grotesque lie meant to abuse this little dead boy one final time to make a case for a US/UK attack on the country his family, in desperation, left behind.  But the boy’s family did not leave in 2010. Or 2009. Or 2008. Not even 2011 or 2012. They did not flee Bashar Assad’s Syria. They fled a Syria on the verge of being overrun by the US-backed radical jihadists who have turned Syria into another Libya. ... for the past four years their governments have been “doing something” in Syria. That is the problem.
Images are a powerful tool in the hands of propagandists. A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes. If a powerful image can be manipulated to tell a tale even if false, it can persuade more viscerally than can a thousand reasoned arguments. So it is with the tragic photograph ...

Just happened to notice Star Wreck News.  Remastered and a sequel planned.  The remaster is to 720p, which is the best the original material will get.  The sequel has something to do with the Soviet Union in the 23rd century.  

I really enjoyed Star Wreck but was never able to buy anything from their site.  Something would always blow up the credit card transaction at the last instant.

Today marks an alarming record: for the first time in recorded history, there are three Category 4 hurricanes simultaneously moving across the Pacific Ocean. From left to right, these have been named Kilo, Ignacio, and Jimena; Ignacio is currently headed towards the Big Island of Hawaii, while the path of the other two isn't yet clear enough to know if any islands are in danger.

You can read more about it here: http://www.sciencealert.com/three-category-4-hurricanes-have-just-hit-in-pacific-ocean-at-the-same-time

*A Good Place for Routine and Performance Service* I bought parts and used computers for gnu/linux boxes here five years ago. It's a great place for computer repair, parts. The owner is friendly, low key, and knows what he's doing. Most customers seemed satisfied. The shop also looked like a good place to build a gaming/media rig. It was filled with exotic motherboards, graphics cards, sound systems, etc. The owner is a gamer himself. The owner is a treasure. I would give the place five stars if it were not for tobacco use which may put people off when they walk in. Don't let it. The owner managed to keep the systems clean by walking outside to smoke.
