When I first began reading about this story in the media, the main focus as presented in the [New York Times](http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/18/business/media/18mortenson.html?_r=1&smid=fb-nytimes&WT.mc_id=BU-SM-E-FB-SM-LIN-TCT-041811-NYT-NA&WT.mc_ev=click “NYT “3 Cups of Tea” Author Defends Book”) and elsewhere was that this was a publishing-ethics issue. Mortenson’s books profess to be biographical. If real-life events transpired differently from his books, how much discrepancy was acceptable?
Navistar shares were trading about 1 percent higher in afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
Parliament rejected a previous version of the proposal in July. But EU Parliament member Julia Reda, a member of the Pirate Party Germany and a vocal opponent of the legislation, says the version approved Wednesday made “nothing but cosmetic changes” to the most controversial parts of the proposal. Reda called for the parliament and the council to modify the final version of the legislation to ensure that automated filters aren’t necessary.
But a decade after Reddit launched, it has blossomed into a platform for racist, anti-Semitic, misogynistic and other hateful conversations. A March white paper by The Southern Poverty Law Center says it’s more vile than the hate site started by a former Alabama Klan leader, and accuses it of “providing a home for anti-black racists — and some of the most virulent and violent propaganda around.” The harder its leaders worked to establish new behavioral norms on the site over the past year, the more vocal the trolls became.
10:41 am: New app: find my friends. It lets you find the location of family and friends. It’s like Find My iPhone for people. But sometimes you just want to share your location for a few hours or a day. You can create a temporary event and share your location for a certain amount of time, like a day at the beach. You can easily locate friends and family, there’s a temporary sharing option, simple privacy controls, and parental restrictions. (Parents can restrict kids from turning it off!) All of this is part of iCloud, which is free for iOS 5 users and OS X Lion users.
[T]here’s no legal “right” to copy the copyrighted music on a CD onto a CD-R. However, burning a copy of CD onto a CD-R, or transferring a copy onto your computer hard drive or your portable music player, won’t usually raise concerns so long as:
Transport for London (TfL) will reward passengers who set up the Oyster Auto top-up in the next month with five free iTunes songs. The Oyster Auto top-up automatically refills (by charging your credit card) TfL Oyster transit cards with credit when balance gets low. With Auto top-up, passengers do not need to stop by a ticket booth or machine to add value to their cards. So what’s the catch? Automatically refilling cards somewhat makes passengers unaware of the amount of money spent on transit – sort of like giftcards where the cash is intangible. TfL, however, has a policy where you will never pay more than the price of a day pass if you make enough journeys. Oyster Cards also provide a significant savings over the paper ticket prices: a trip in Central London Zone 1 costs £1.50 (3 USD) with the Oyster or £4 (8 USD) with paper tickets. The Oyster – iTunes deal can be found on the TfL website and will expire on 29 February 2008.
