Facebook to put 1.5 billion users out of reach of new EU privacy law

No.246924 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
If a new European law restricting what companies can do with people's online data went into effect tomorrow, almost 1.9 billion Facebook Inc users around the world would be protected by it. The online social network is making changes that ensure the number will be much smaller.

Facebook members outside the United States and Canada, whether they know it or not, are currently governed by terms of service agreed with the company's international headquarters in Ireland.

Next month, Facebook is planning to make that the case for only European users, meaning 1.5 billion members in Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America will not fall under the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on May 25.

The previously unreported move, which Facebook confirmed to Reuters on Tuesday, shows the world's largest online social network is keen to reduce its exposure to GDPR, which allows European regulators to fine companies for collecting or using personal data without users' consent

It’s becoming clear that Trump won’t run in 2020

No.247280 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
It has been nearly three years since Donald Trump descended his faux-gold escalator to announce an improbable run for president, and Republican politicians seem just as baffled by the reality TV star’s future as they were the day he first launched this publicity stunt gone wildly wrong.

It is true that GOP leaders stand silent as President Trump trashes the rule of law, attacks federal judges and declares America’s free press the “enemy of the people.” These lap dogs even remain muzzled as younger Americans are chained to a future of crippling debt. And they shame the memory of the first Republican president — who gave his life ending slavery — by marching alongside a bumbling bigot who labels Hispanics “breeders” and “rapists,” seeks to bar tens of millions of Muslims from entering the country, and defends white supremacy in the ugly aftermath of Charlottesville.

And yet these same morally enfeebled enablers have become muted when asked whether they’ll support their fearless leader’s reelection bid.

“Look, I’m focused on opioids,” muttered Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, suggesting that a U.S. senator is not mentally adept enough to fight a drug epidemic while also figuring out whether he backs a president in his own party. Alexander is not the only GOP senator to offer up tortured answers to this simple question.

FOSTA/SESTA signed into Law.

Prepare to see the death of the Internet as we know it, disguised as a "Sex-Trafficing" pair of laws. Sex Trafficing is already made illegal under prior laws, while Section 230 of the CDA was basically a protection of responsibility for website owners regardless of what content's posted or uploaded to their sites.
Sites like 4chan that host adult content are now viable targets, retroactively, whenever someone posts something that's obviously criminal, even if said content's been purged from a site that responsibly acts within the law.

Postal worker arrested after 17,000 pieces of undelivered mail found

No.246898 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A Brooklyn postal worker was arrested after 17,000 pieces of undelivered mail were found in his car, apartment and home, authorities said.

Aleksey Germash, a letter carrier who’s worked for the United States Postal Service for more than 16 years, had undelivered mail from as far back as 2005 in his possession. He told investigators he kept the mail because was overwhelmed by the amount he had to deliver each day. Germash said he made sure to deliver “the important mail.”

Officials found about 10,000 pieces of undelivered mail in his car, approximately 1,000 pieces in his locker and around 6,000 additional pieces of undelivered mail in his apartment.

They started investigating after they received information about full mail bags inside Germash’s car. USPS employees found 20 full bags in his car on April 18.

He was arrested April 19.

Germash is not the first postal worker to keep mail instead of delivering it. Agents arrested a Long Island letter carrier earlier this month after they found dozens of bags filled with undelivered mail behind his home.

Anyone who thinks they may have been a victim of mail theft or slow delivery can call 888-USPS-OIG or file a complaint online at USPSOIG.gov.

The jackass goblin Verne Troyer killed himself today.

No.247372 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today.

Verne was an extremely caring individual. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible. Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message everyday.

He inspired people around the world with his drive, determination, and attitude. On film & television sets, commercial shoots, at comic-con’s & personal appearances, to his own YouTube videos, he was there to
show everyone what he was capable of doing.

Depression and Suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.

Problem with a possum: Woman calls 911 for rodent in her home

No.246678 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A Lantana woman is recovering from a problem with a 'possum.
Saturday she had an odd request for 911 dispatchers--to get a possum out of her bedroom.
CBS12 just got the 911 call from the funny encounter.

“ I don’t know how to explain this I’m a single woman, I’m 53 years old I think it’s a possum,” said Dagne “Dee” Kuiper in the call.

Kuiper found the surprise in her nightstand.
She says she came across an opossum in her home the night before, but she was OK with that one.
“It was so cute last night he’s little but I don’t know if it’s the same one now,” Kuiper said to the dispatcher.
But the one in her nightstand made itself too comfortable and she said it peed on her bed.
The dispatcher did her best to keep Kuiper calm, but even she couldn’t hold in her laughter.
She was able to her sense of humor too.

“The one time I needed a man in my life is right now. What do I do with him the other four days?” said Kuiper in the call.
Luckily for Kuiper, an officer was able to come and remove the opossum.
She says it didn’t have rabies, but she’s still looking for that man to help her out at least one day a week.
