xx Why Debate A Teenager When You Can Bully One
« Reply #10320 on: Mar 21st, 2014, 6:56pm »

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl.

University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors.

Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older sister Joan, 21, and some other pro-life activists were holding signs and demonstrating in a free speech zone on the bucolic campus March 4 when Miller-Young, who also teaches courses on pornography, went berserk.

The sisters say they distributed nearly 1,000 informational pamphlets during the event, which was organized by the Riverside-based nonprofit Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. Things took an unexpected turn when, according to Short, Miller-Young approached the demonstrators and a group of students who had gathered.

“Before she grabbed the sign, she was mocking me and talking over me in front of the students, saying that she was twice as old as me and had three degrees, so they should listen to her and not me,” Thrin Short wrote in an email to FoxNews.com. “Then she started the chant with the students about ‘tear down the sign.’ When that died out, she grabbed the sign.”

"It would be cowardly to back off just because of what this one person did."

- Thrin Short

With a graphic anti-abortion sign in hand, Miller-Young, whose faculty web page says she specializes in black cultural studies and pornography, then allegedly walked through two campus buildings as Short, her sister and two UCSB students followed closely behind. Short captured much of the incident, which she charged was a "deliberate" provocation by Miller-Young, on a cellphone video later posted to YouTube while her sister called campus police. Miller-Young pushed Short at least three times, the student alleges, as she tried to stop an elevator door from closing as the educator stood inside with her sign, Short said.

“I explained how I had been trying to keep the elevator door open with my foot, because I thought the police would be there any second, and that’s when she pushed and grabbed me,” Short’s email continued. “She then got off the elevator and tried to pull me away from the elevator doors so the others could get away with the sign.”

Short said she suffered minor injuries during the melee — scratches on both wrists — and said campus police are now reviewing the video.

Miller-Young did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment. In the report filed by campus police, she claimed she had a "moral right" to act in the manner she did.

Thrin's father, William Short, said he would have expected an academic to engage in thoughtful debate with someone she disagreed with.

"She was free to engage in a rational dialogue with them," Short said after learning the professor had been charged. "Instead, she chose to bully them, steal and destroy their property, and hit and scratch my daughter. After doing so, she said she thought she was setting a good example for her students.

"I think the goal of this prosecution should be to set a good example for her students, one that will not only deter her from repeating this conduct, but will also deter those who approve of her actions from imitating her appalling behavior," he added.

It was unclear if Miller-Young faces any punishment from the school.

“The university is aware of the incident and it is being reviewed by the appropriate offices,” UCSB spokesman George Foulsham wrote to FoxNews.com earlier this month. “It is university policy not to discuss personnel matters.”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2586281/Officials-FBI-agent-cleared-Florida-shooting.html

A Florida prosecutor has cleared an FBI agent of any criminal wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a Chechen man as he was being questioned about a Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

Two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation said Friday that State Attorney Jeff Ashton won't bring charges against the agent.

Ibragim Todashev, a 27-year-old mixed martial arts fighter, was killed in Orlando in May while FBI agents and Massachusetts state troopers questioned him about his friendship with suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Officials originally said Todashev lunged at an agent with a knife while he was being questioned. They later said it was no longer clear what happened.

Federal prosecutors have said in court filings that Todashev named Tsarnaev as a participant in an earlier triple homicide in Massachusetts. The filings were made in the case against Tsarnaev's brother, surviving bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

According to the filings, Todashev told investigators Tamerlan Tsarnaev participated in a triple slaying in Waltham on September 11, 2011.

US a No-Show for UN Talks on Covert Drone Wars

- Sarah Lazare, staff writer

The United States is refusing to participate in UN Human Rights Council talks about greater accountability for human rights violations in covert drone wars.

Foreign Policy reporter Colum Lynch, who broke the story Wednesday, says the U.S. is opting out of discussions about a draft Pakistani resolution aimed at the U.S. drone strikes. Lynch explains:

The Pakistani draft, which was obtained by Foreign Policy, urges states to "ensure transparency" in record-keeping on drone strikes and to "conduct prompt, independent and impartial investigations whenever there are indications of any violations to human rights caused by their use." It also calls for the convening of "an interactive panel discussion" on the use of drones.

During the third round of talks on Wednesday about the resolution, the United States was notably absent. The boycott marks a shift from President Obama's decision in 2009 to join the Human Rights Council after years of U.S. boycott at the behest of former President George W. Bush.

Yet, the move is in keeping with the Obama administration's diligent refusal to share public information about those U.S. drone wars and those killed in the attacks. A "modest" initiative in the U.S. Senate that would have forced the U.S. government to publicly report and identify those killed by U.S. drone strikes overseas failed last November.

While the Obama administration has repeatedly claimed that civilian deaths in drone strikes are minimal, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism documents alarming rates of civilian deaths by covert U.S. attacks in Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia. Furthermore, in a 21-page report released earlier this month, UN special rapporteur on human rights Ben Emmerson identifies drone strikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Gaza in which civilians were killed, injured, or threatened in drone attacks by the U.S. and close ally Israel.

The U.S. still has not answered for numerous high-profile attacks, including a December 2013 U.S. drone strike on a recent wedding procession in Yemen near the city of Rad’a that left 12 people dead and at least 15 wounded.

The boycott of the talks comes as the U.S. escalates its covert drone war in Yemen, with at least seven suspected strikes in the first two weeks of March.

UFOs sighted in southern Alberta, claims family

'I've never seen anything like that before,' says Sam Martine

CBC News Posted: Mar 21, 2014 7:23 PM MT

A mother and daughter who live on a ranch just outside of Nanton are scratching their heads after a couple of unidentified flying objects flew over their southern Alberta home late last Sunday night.

Sam Martine says she and her daughter were watching TV when they saw two bright lights hovering over a field less than a kilometre away from their home.

Martine says when they went out on the porch for a closer look the lights quickly flew towards them, spooking their cattle.

"Then the light just started coming straight at us and it went straight over our house and headed to the northwest behind us," said Martine. "I've never seen anything like that before."

Martine's 14-year-old daughter Baylie tried to take a picture of the objects with her cellphone, but said the camera was acting weird.

"The picture went completely green and later on that night it ended up deleting itself."

Sam Martine was able to get her DSLR camera working, but only got a few photos. They are still not sure what they saw but the story is getting plenty of attention on the internet.

Chris Rutkowski, a science writer who studies UFO reports in Canada, believes there may be a simple explanation.

The Chicken From Hell

The Anzu wyliei is the largest North American example of a type of bird-like dinosaur well known in Asia

A bird-like dinosaur, which has been called the “chicken from hell” and was some 7 feet tall and 500 pounds when it roamed western North America, finally received a scientific name on Wednesday.

The creature was formally introduced to the scientific community as Anzu wyliei. Scientists also published a description and analysis of its anatomy.

The dinosaur’s moniker comes from a mythological feathered demon plus the name of a Carnegie Museum of Natural History trustee's grandson.

The beast got its “chicken from hell” nickname long ago at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, where a replica of its skeleton has been on display for a decade. Three skeletons were found in a sedimentary rock layer known as Hell Creek Formation in three locations in North and South Dakota, which helped inspire the nickname.

It is the largest North American example of a type of bird-like dinosaur well known in Asia. Its extensive remains offer a detailed picture of the North American branch of these dinosaurs that had remained mysterious since their bones were first discovered about a century ago, the scientists said.

Anzu had a toothless beak and a crest on its skull like a rooster's comb, combined with long arms and sharp claws up to about 4 inches long. It apparently also had feathers over much of its body.

The analysis, published in the journal PLoS One, concluded that Anzu belongs to a group of dinosaurs that scientists knew little about because they had recovered only fragmentary remains from its members.

In contrast, the three specimens of Anzu from North and South Dakota that were included in the analysis collectively supply a nearly complete skeleton, said Matthew Lamanna of the Carnegie museum.

The dinosaur lived some 66 million to 68 million years ago in a hot and humid landscape like the Louisiana bayou, he said. It ate plants and maybe small animals when it wasn't fleeing from a hungry and much bigger Tyrannosaurus Rex, Lamanna added.

While the scientists’ first choice was to give the creature a Latin or Greek name that translates to “chicken from hell,” Lamanna said the phrase wasn’t as catchy in either language.

"All the names we came up with were just ridiculously unpronounceable," he said.

So "I thought that if I couldn't come up with a name that literally meant 'chicken from hell,' I could at least name it 'feathered demon.'"

Chinese internet company defends its independence after NSA revelations

• US spy agency reportedly built 'back doors' into servers
• Huawei condemns alleged infiltration of corporate network

Reuters in Berlin
Sunday 23 March 2014 10.06 EDT

The Chinese telecom and internet company Huawei defended its independence on Sunday and said it would condemn any infiltration of its servers by the US National Security Agency, if reports of such activities by the NSA were true.

The New York Times and the German magazine Der Spiegel reported this weekend, citing documents leaked by the former US security contractor Edward Snowden, that the NSA had obtained sensitive data and monitored Huawei executives' communications.

"If the actions in the report are true, Huawei condemns such activities that invaded and infiltrated into our internal corporate network and monitored our communications," Huawei's global cyber security officer, John Suffolk, told Reuters.

"Corporate networks are under constant probe and attack from different sources – such is the status quo in today's digital age," said Suffolk, defending Huawei's independence and security record, saying it was very successful in 145 countries.

The New York Times said one goal of the NSA operation, code-named "Shotgiant", was to uncover any connections between Huawei and the Chinese People's Liberation Army. But it also sought to exploit Huawei's technology and conduct surveillance through computer and telephone networks Huawei sold to other countries.

If ordered by the US president, the NSA also planned to unleash offensive cyber operations, the newspaper said.

The paper said the NSA gained access to servers in Huawei's sealed headquarters in Shenzhen and got information about the workings of the giant routers and complex digital switches the company says connect a third of the world's people.

Der Spiegel said the NSA copied a list of more than 1,400 clients and internal training documents for engineers. It said the agency was pursuing a digital offensive against the Chinese political leadership, naming the former prime minister Hu Jintao and the Chinese trade and foreign ministries as targets.

"If we can determine the company's plans and intentions," an analyst wrote in a 2010 document cited by the Times, "we hope that this will lead us back to the plans and intentions" of the Chinese government.

The Times noted that US officials see Huawei as a security threat and have blocked the company from making business deals in the US, worried it would furnish equipment with "back doors" that could enable China's military or Chinese-backed hackers to swipe corporate and government secrets.

"We certainly don't build 'back doors'," Suffolk said. Suffolk, who is British, said the company never handed over its source codes to governments either.

"I can't say what American firms do. We have never been asked to hand over any data to a government or authority or to facilitate access to our technology," he said. "And we wouldn't do this either. Our position on this point is very clear."

US officials deny the NSA spies on foreign companies to give US firms a competitive edge, though they acknowledge that in the course of assessing the economic prospects or stability of other countries, US agencies might collect data on firms.

The Times and Der Spiegel articles were published just days before China's President Xi Jinping visits Europe, where he will hold talks with the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, herself reportedly a target of surveillance by the NSA, like some German companies.

The former NSA chief Michael Hayden – who ran the agency from 1999 to 2005 and then ran the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) until 2009 – told Der Spiegel in a separate interview that the United States had underestimated the reaction of the chancellor and the German population to revelations of mass surveillance.

Hayden said he was not prepared to apologise for US intelligence agencies having had another nation under surveillance.

"But I am ready to apologise for having us having made a good friend look bad," he said. "Shame on us, it was our mistake."

Wolves Approach Paris as Farmers Cry Foul Over Protected Species

By Gregory Viscusi
Mar 20, 2014 4:01 PM PT

Wolves are at the gates of Paris.

A dead male wolf, probably shot by hunters, was found Jan. 31 in Coole, a town 160 kilometers (100 miles) east of the French capital. Since May, wolves have attacked flocks of sheep 29 times in a cluster of villages about 180 kilometers southeast of Paris.

“That’s just a few days’ walk for a wolf,” said Maxime Zucca, a researcher at Natureparif, a government-funded body that studies wildlife in Ile-de-France, the region surrounding the capital. “We can’t predict if or when they’ll arrive in the Paris area, but it’s something we have to be prepared for.”

While wolves don’t pose an immediate danger to the city’s residents, they have been spreading out north and west in France since crossing over from Italy in 1992, and everywhere they’ve led to clashes between farmers who say their flocks are at risk and environmentalists who welcome the return of the mythical predators. Farmers, supported by some members of parliament, want France to pull out of accords banning the hunting of protected raiders such as wolves, lynx and bears.

“Wolves are fine in the Alps, in Siberia, in Yellowstone but they are incompatible with human farming,” Nicolas Dhuicq, a lawmaker who has entered a bill allowing wolf hunting, said in an interview last week as he and farmers in the Aube region, southeast of Paris, met at a local farm to discuss how to raise awareness about the challenges they face from wolves.

Until their return in the 1990s, the last wolves in France were killed in the southwest in the 1920s. They have been extinct in the Paris region since the middle of the 19th century.

Farmers’ Woes

France has a wolf population now of between 250 and 300, and their numbers are growing, according to the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota. That compares with 1,000 in Italy, as many as 2,000 in Spain, and about 50 in Germany.

Wolves killed 6,666 farm animals, mostly sheep, across France in 2012, up from 5,362 in 2011 and 4,691 in in 2010, according to the Ministry of the Environment. About half of those attacks were in the southern Alps, where Italian wolves first appeared in France after a hiatus of more than 60 years.

The number of mainland France’s 94 departments that have reported sheep killed by wolves rose to 16 in 2012 -- the latest figures available -- from 14 in 2011 and 11 in 2010.

Farmers say the statistics on the attacks underestimate the scale of the problem because wounded sheep often die later and pregnant females frequently miscarry because of the stress.

Compare: How London Looks on Google vs. Paintings From the 1700s

By Liz Stinson
03.24.14
6:30 AM



User Image
Redditor Shystone took Google Street View photos and made composite images using classic paintings of London. Here is the River Thames in present day with Canaletto's painting of the same view in 1746.




Google’s Street View images bear some similarities to 18th-century landscape paintings. The content is different, of course. What Google’s army of photo collectors captured at Westminster Abbey on any given day in the 21st century will look different than what Italian painter Canaletto saw back in the 1700s. But they’re both a representation of an exact moment in time, which makes them a handy way to compare now and then if you can isolate the right locations.

Redditor Shystone has laid old paintings over Google Street View photographs to create a series of perspective-bending composite images of old and new London. Modern sculptures dominate a plaza that was once wide open; neon signs reside on the same block as gas-lit streetlights; and a bridge covers over a river that was once filled with sailboats.

We’ve seen projects similar to this before, but it works particularly well in a city like London, where history is built into infrastructure and architecture. Buildings that existed in the 18th century are still standing today, which gives the images a ghostly feeling. It really is incredible how well paintings from artists like Canaletto and Balthazar Nebot reflect current-day London. It certainly helps that Shystone made sure to line up the edges of buildings and streets for maximum effect.
