Canada B.C. Court: Facebook Usage Logs Must Be Disclosed by Personal Injury Claimant:

“As we noted last month in Facebook, Disclosure, Leduc and Ontario Employment Law, online postings at social media sites may well now be fair game for disclosure in Ontario civil litigation. With the B.C. ruling in Bishop, it is clear that the Facebook disclosure trend in becoming a national one.”

Recently, our beloved facebook has decided to start policing the links that are posted to its members’ profiles. Citing “controversies” and “ongoing lawsuits”, facebooks has unilaterally decided that links to The Pirate Bay are now banned.

What a Mustache Says About A Man’s Profession:

A lot can be told by a man’s mustache, and it seems certain professions have their own. For some it can be a small handlebar, and for others it can be a bushy chevron. The bottom line however, is that the hair on a man’s upper lip can rightfully be understood as a window into his soul. The following is a list of the most notable mustaches, and noteworthy stereotypes from the industries that championed each ’stache:

Iraq South Park creators receive signed Saddam photo:

During his captivity, US marines forced Saddam, who was executed in 2006, to repeatedly watch the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut, which shows him as gay, as well as the boyfriend of Satan. He was also regularly depicted in a similar manner during the TV series.

When Twitter gets overloaded, users see the “Fail Whale” error message. This image brings a human touch to a moment of frustration and now is turning into a pop culture icon for the Web 2.0 crowd:

United States Guiding Light canceled after 72 year run:

Guiding Light, which entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest-running dramatic series in the world, started on radio in 1937 as a series of stories about faith, in which characters beset with troubles would talk to trusted Reverend Ruthledge, the keeper of “the guiding light” which shone from his window. Over the years, the theme of “the guiding light” became more muted and the series shifted focus to a middle-class German immigrant family, the Bauers. The show has been produced on television and seen nearly every weekday since June 30, 1952.

  • reasonably significant portions of health budgets will be dedicated to disease prevention, health promotion, and chronic disease management;
  • efficient methods of evaluating foreign-trained doctors will be put in place;
  • and compensation will be provided to developing countries whose doctors they recruit to come to Canada.

Webcast shows B.C. eagle eggs about to hatch:

why we capitalize ‘I’ in Internet:

uh-oh, are Wikipedia writers running out of topics?:

TattleTexting:

Rejoice, because the wonders of texting can now be brought to bear down on the miscreants of the sports arena. All you have to do is know one number and text the nature of the problem you’re having with another fan to that number.

Twenty-nine of the 32 NFL stadiums employ the service–described by ESPN’s Rick Reilly as “tattletexting.” So do many Major League Baseball, NBA and, yes, even NCAA March Madness games. (Hockey has it too. But surely, one would only want to text to get the slobbering, scuffling players off the ice.)

Announcing the Launch of the Huffington Post Investigative Fund:

As the newspaper industry continues to contract, one of the most commonly voiced fears is that serious investigative journalism will be among the victims of the scaleback. And, indeed, many newspapers are drastically reducing their investigative teams. Yet, given the multiple crises we are living through, investigative journalism is all the more important. As a result, all who recognize the indispensable role good journalism plays in our democracy are looking for ways to preserve it during this transitional period for the media. For too long, whether it’s coverage of the war in Iraq or the economic meltdown, we’ve had too many autopsies and not enough biopsies. The HuffFund is our attempt to change this. It will also provide new opportunities for seasoned journalists who have been laid off or forced into early retirement.

If you’re not familiar with it, The Huffington Post is pretty much THE political blog in the U.S. I’m happy to see HuffPo take this initiative. It’s the Dot Com with the street cred to bring serious investigative journalism to the web, in the States. Of course here in BC we already have http://thetyee.ca/, the “independent daily online magazine reaching every corner of B.C. and beyond”.

Famed Anonymous Anti-Palin Blogger ‘Outed’ by Lawmaker:

“Alaska Muckraker” (AKM) rose to blogger fame almost instantaneously when Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin was tapped to be John McCain’s running mate, and the then anonymous blogger wrote “What is McCain Thinking? One Alaskan’s Perspective” under the penname AKM. Little was known about Palin in the lower 48, and AKM provided a much-needed window throughout the campaign season into Palin’s performance as governor of Alaska from a progressive viewpoint.

Faux News parachutes in to hassle anti-Palin bloggers in Alaska:

Linda Kellen Biegal of Celtic Diva is one of several bloggers up in Alaska who warned everyone long ago about Sarah Palin and her corrupt government. Linda recently lodged an ethics complaint against the failed veep candidate and debate winkster. In the spirit of Bill O’Reilly and his attack dog producers, Faux News sent reporters to Alaska to “investigate” the charges.

Canadian Court Orders Website To Reveal Identity Data Of Anonymous Posters:

“An Ontario Superior Court judge has ordered a pair of website owners to turn over identifying information about eight people being accused of defamation after posting anonymous comments.”

If you used a newspaper to insult someone, you could face a defamation lawsuit. In fact, that’s exactly what happened to Stockwell Day in 2001. Things are different on the Internet though, right. Well maybe not forever. This case could set legal precedent to use against trolls and other anonymous douchebags.

Canadian researchers uncover vast computer spying operation:

“TORONTO – A cyber spy network based mainly in China has tapped into classified documents from government and private organizations in 103 countries, including the computers of Tibetan exiles, Canadian researchers said Saturday.”

‘Super-worm’ expected to infect computers Wednesday:

No one knows exactly what is planned for the super-worm, which is expected to activate itself April Fool’s Day, but security researchers expect the bottom line is all about money.

Purita calls the worm “dark Google” and theorizes it may provide the bad guys with an internal search engine to ferret out confidential documents stored on infected computers.

The perpetrator or perpetrators could conceivably collect every credit card number on infected computers, some of which are bound to be owned by businesses and used to store credit card data.

South Park Last Supper… You Bastards!:

The only surprising thing about a South Park Last Supper parody is that it has taken them so long to do one. This scene is from Margaritaville, which as of this writing, has yet to air here in Canada, but played in the U.S. earlier this week. Kyle, the Jew, as Jesus with Cartman as his Judas? It’s a perfect match, and trust me, I’ve seen a whole lot of versions of the Last Supper – here are 50 of them.

Video Mashup: Watchmen + Wall-e:
Speaking of Wall-e, it’s another Watchmen mashup. That song is “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” by Smashing Pumpkins. Its a remix of their song “The End is the Beginning is the End” which was made for the “Batman and Robin” Soundtrack. I’m beginning to think that you could add that song to any slowed-down footage to get a dystopian future. I’m sure it won’t be long before we see the Watchmen + Care Bears mashup.

China, Pakistan + Taliban, Shantytowns, and G-20 Protests

March 27, 2009 at 5:26 pm | Posted in Interweb, Politics | Leave a comment

has China replaced the U.S. role in the world economy?

how China sees the world and how the world should see China:

The rise of China over the past three decades has been astonishing. But it has lacked the one feature it needed fully to satisfy the ultranationalist fringe: an accompanying decline of the West. Now capitalism is in a funk in its heartlands. Europe and Japan, embroiled in the deepest post-war recession, are barely worth consideration as rivals. America, the superpower, has passed its peak. Although in public China’s leaders eschew triumphalism, there is a sense in Beijing that the reassertion of the Middle Kingdom’s global ascendancy is at hand.

Afghan Strikes by Taliban Get Pakistan Help, U.S. Aides Say :

WASHINGTON — The Taliban’s widening campaign in southern Afghanistan is made possible in part by direct support from operatives in Pakistan’s military intelligence agency, despite Pakistani government promises to sever ties to militant groups fighting in Afghanistan, according to American government officials.

Boy, forget aboot eating the geese, some people want to eat the Banksters Protesters, police go online in G-20 battle:

LONDON, England (CNN) — Social networking Web sites are set to play a crucial role in protests ahead of next week’s G-20 meeting of world leaders in London as demonstration organizers and police use Twitter and Facebook as key sources of real-time information and intelligence.

Metropolitan Police leaders have warned that the city faces an “unprecedented” wave of protest in the run-up to Thursday’s summit talks on the state of the global economy and are set to deploy huge numbers of officers to maintain public order.

Thousands of protesters are expected to march through the streets this Saturday in a rally organized by trade unions and left wing groups.

US cities deal with shantytowns:

I’ve heard these shantytowns refered to as “Bushvilles”. I suppose it won’t be long before the right wingnut amnesiacs start calling them “Obamavilles”.

What’s going on with Vancouver’s recurring tent city situation? I don’t know. The most recent thing that I found was from six months ago: Oct 30, 2008 The Downtown Eastside Residents Association says it will help homeless people “re-establish a tent city” on city-owned property in downtown Vancouver.

Do you know anything more recent than that? Please leave an update in the comments.

Cake of Resignation, Conjoined Crocodiles, and Indian Doctors Remove Iron Rod from Boy

March 16, 2009 at 5:39 pm | Posted in Interweb, Videos | Leave a comment
  • Cake of Resignation:

    This is all class. 100% sugary diabetes-inducing class.

    Today I gave a two week’s notice of my intent to resign. The letter was written in frosting on a full sheet size cake. The cake was delicious and it was well received.
    “Dear Mr. Bowers,

    During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy and whim.

    However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.

    Please accept this cake as notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27.

  • In Thailand, two crocodile siblings were born conjoined:

    Click the image to go to the video. Help me out with my Asian history/geography. Has Thailand replaced Siam, or is a different name for the same country? Are these crocodiles, in fact, Siamese Twins?

    This video prompted me to check up on Abigail and Brittany Hensel, a pair of conjoined twins in Minnesota who share almost an entire body. They appear to be a two headed person. However, they are two distinct people. I had read about them as children and am happy to learn that as adults they seem to be doing just fine. There are links to pictures in the Wikipedia article if you’re interested.

  • Indian doctors save boy impaled on iron rod:

    Some reports say the surgery was five hours. WARNING: picture of boy with iron rod through torso.

    Some reports say the surgery was three hours. WARNING: also picture of boy with iron rod through torso.

    I think anything short of 12 hours is miraculous. 3 to 5 hours means that the surgeon would have had time to squeeze in a couple of more surgeries that day.

    Surgeon’s Spouse: Hi sweet-falafel, how was your day.

    Surgeon: Oh, it was good. I performed an appendectomy, took out a little girl’s tonsils, and removed a five foot iron rod from a boy’s ribcage.

    The story reminds me of another Falling On Fence story which did not turn out so well. WARNING: gruesome imagery.

Abandoned Detroit Schools

March 15, 2009 at 9:10 am | Posted in Interweb | Leave a comment
  • When you were a child, did school officials threaten to add incident reports to your permanent record, branding you a miscreant for life? How would you feel about learning that those records, along with textbooks, personal affects, and even the school itself would end up rotting away?

    In the last half-century, Detroit lost more than half its population. Those leaving the city were mostly white people who fled to the suburbs. As a result, the tax base was destroyed and the black population that remains has had to govern a 139-square-mile city with limited resources.

    With an aging infrastructure built for twice the existing population, the school district has to shut down and vacate school buildings every year. In 2007, the school board awarded a contract for securing, cleaning and removing supplies from closed schools to a Philadelphia-based company with ties to school board members. However, the work at many closed schools was simply never done.

    I must admit, I have a kind of ghoulish fascination with abandoned places, and I found James Griffioen’s photo article to be hauntingly beautiful.
