Al-Qaida militants capture town in northern Syria

Yet the jihadis, including members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaida offshoot, have been some of the most effective forces on the battlefield, fighting alongside the Western-backed Free Syrian Army to capture military facilities, strategic installations and key neighborhoods in cities such as Aleppo and Homs.

But the two sides have turned their guns on each other. Turf wars and retaliatory killings have evolved into ferocious battles in what has effectively become a war within a war in northern and eastern Syria, leaving hundreds dead on both sides.

'Grand Theft Auto V' generates $800 million in first-day sales

"Grand Theft Auto V," the latest installment in Rockstar Games' hit video game series, reaped an eye-popping $800 million in worldwide retail sales on its first day of release Tuesday.

The hotly anticipated game appears to have blown past the one-day retail sales record set by Activision Blizzard Inc., whose "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" brought in $500 million in its fist 24 hours of release. That game went on to reach $1 billion in sales in 15 days -- faster, many observed, than the box office record-holder "Avatar."

The new season has started and continues with all the crazy plot developments. Each season Kurt Sutter seems to find new ways to torture Otto. The bit with the kid showing up throughout the show definitely got me curious and I certainly didn't predict how they would finally explain his importance.

U.S. measles cases in 2013 may be most in 17 years

Nearly two-thirds of the reported cases happened in three outbreaks in communities where many people don't vaccinate their children for religious or philosophical reasons.

Shocking! If people don't vaccinate their children they are at a higher risk for getting the disease?

According to the CDC, one to three out of every 1,000 children in the United States who get measles will die from the disease, even with the best of care. Even if complications such as pneumonia and encephalitis aren't deadly, they can make children very sick; in 2011, nearly 40% of children under the age of 5 who got measles had to be treated in the hospital.

This is all better than the non-existent risk of autism.  Roll Eyes

It's amusing how Christians act like there are two versions to be compared: creationism based on the bible and science based evolution. When in fact there are hundreds of origin myths. I don't want a science teacher wasting time equally discussing all of these viewpoints. Save that for a comparative religions class.

Honestly, I like racing games.  And after a couple of sessions with the BP: UB game, I threw it in the abandoned category and moved on.  I just couldn't take the knockout moves that would turn my car into a ballistic mass with no ability to control.

I keep trying to find a good racing game. I have gone through Dirt 2, Burnout Paradise, and a few others without success.

NSA Can Spy on Smart Phone Data

The United States' National Security Agency intelligence-gathering operation is capable of accessing user data from smart phones from all leading manufacturers. Top secret NSA documents that SPIEGEL has seen explicitly note that the NSA can tap into such information on Apple iPhones, BlackBerry devices and Google's Android mobile operating system.

The documents state that it is possible for the NSA to tap most sensitive data held on these smart phones, including contact lists, SMS traffic, notes and location information about where a user has been.

Doubters doubting

Critics have knocked Nyad for withholding a detailed account of each of her nearly 53 hours in the ocean, information that would include her speed, the number of strokes, her feeding schedule, and her Global Positioning System coordinates—standard data recorded by observers that would bolster her claim.

"If she's accomplished what she's claiming to accomplish … I wonder why she wouldn't take the extra steps to make sure people believe it was actually true," Morrison said.

The lack of information is particularly irksome to some swimmers because Nyad's team has produced a steady stream of pictures and blog posts for publicity, but not the specifics that her fellow sportsmen crave. "I'm skeptical if she swam every stroke of that 110 miles,'' said Mo Siegel of Piermont, New York, who just completed a 20-mile crossing of Cape Cod Bay. "I'd love to be proved wrong."

Finished up House of Cards over the long weekend. Wasn't too sure about it after the first two episodes but after that it got me hooked pretty quick. Ended up doing a 6hr session one of the days. I didn't like the Kevin Spacey character speaking to the screen at first but then a few episodes in I was grinning each time he did it as I loved the little insights. Really looking forward to season two.

I thought talking to the camera was a great gimmick. I love how he will do it in the middle of a conversation with the person sitting right there. Or when he waves to the camera during the Presidential swearing in.  icon_biggrin

Here Are All The People Who Have Died From A Marijuana Overdose

Yeah, not a single person has ever died from a weed overdose. We don't have numbers on pandas, but we're guessing it's about the same. According to one frequently cited study, a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times the amount of THC in a joint in order to be at risk of dying.

Drug Agents Use Vast Phone Trove, Eclipsing N.S.A.’s

The Hemisphere Project, a partnership between federal and local drug officials and AT&T that has not previously been reported, involves an extremely close association between the government and the telecommunications giant.

The government pays AT&T to place its employees in drug-fighting units around the country. Those employees sit alongside Drug Enforcement Administration agents and local detectives and supply them with the phone data from as far back as 1987.

Can we stop pretending there is such a thing as the 4th Amendment?
