Everyone in this circle is either a G+ page representing a News focused organization or people that work in association with a News focused organization.

The Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight on May 2 will probably be the single biggest payday for any professional athlete ever. The two fighters will be duking it out to split a prize of about $200 million, according estimates. #Pacquiao  has agreed to take home 40% of the purse, or about $80 million, while #Mayweather   would get almost $120 million. The final total will depend on just how well the historic fight sells, both on TV and off. http://cnnmon.ie/1FPFKYv

It must be true, I found it on the Internet! Naive? Maybe. After all, cyberspace has its fair share of myths. Now #Google  may have found a way to clean house, or at least throw the trash in the basement. The company is figuring out how to rank websites by the veracity of their content. The more truthful the page, the higher up it would appear in search results. http://cnnmon.ie/1BHq4E8

Jennifer Aniston lauds the benefits of Aveeno, Bud Light shows off beer at a concert, and Secret sells its freshly scented deodorant.
Pretty standard commercials, but what's different is the content that comes after. In this case, they're all followed by ISIS and jihadi videos.
"From a contract perspective, these corporations that are paying lots of money to get YouTube clicks may not be that pleased when they find out that their video is placed right before an ISIS recruitment video," legal analyst Danny Cevallos said. http://cnnmon.ie/1wHoT7e

The bull market in stocks is getting old. It's been alive and kicking for nearly six years, carrying the S&P 500 215% higher and into uncharted territory. On top of that, the Nasdaq is knocking on the door of 5,000 for the first time in 15 years. None of this means the party in stocks is over.  http://cnnmon.ie/1K3FwzZ

Companies keep getting #hacked . And that's music to the ears of the executives and investors in #cybersecurity  companies. February has been a phenomenal month for the overall stock market. The S&P 500 is up about 6%. But companies that help mitigate the damage from major attacks have done even better. There is a relatively new exchange-traded fund for cybersecurity companies. The ticker symbol, appropriately, is HACK. It has surged nearly 17% in February. http://cnnmon.ie/1Gztusv

Networking giant #Ericsson   is trying to stop Apple from importing #iPhones  and #iPads   to the United States. It's part of a prolonged patent dispute between the two companies that has recently landed in several courts.

In a reversal, #Google  says that #porn  will continue to be allowed on its #Blogger  site. Google said it has received a big backlash after deciding earlier in the week that bloggers will no longer be able to "publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity." The ban was to have taken place on March 23. Instead, Google said that the company would simply double down on its crackdown of bloggers who use their sites to sell porn. http://cnnmon.ie/1Gz0d18

"Consumers win." That's how #Netflix  is portraying Thursday's historic vote in favor of "net neutrality" by the Federal Communications Commission. Netflix has been one of the most visible proponents of the new regulatory approach, which -- if upheld by the courts -- will treat wired and wireless Internet access more like a utility and regulate it accordingly. "The net neutrality debate is about who picks winners and losers online: Internet service providers or consumers. Today, the FCC settled it: Consumers win." #FCC   #netneutrality   http://cnnmon.ie/1wle3xZ

#Apple  has announced that it will hold a "special" event on Monday, March 9 in San Francisco. The company is widely expected to discuss the Apple Watch, unveiling the wearable gadget's latest features, pricing and availability. Apple (AAPL, Tech30) unveiled the new watch in September, but it skimped on some important details -- namely battery life. The #AppleWatch  has been widely rumored to have less than a day's worth of battery life, and the company has reportedly been trying to improve its power efficiency before providing more information. http://cnnmon.ie/1BhF3Ey

BREAKING: The #FCC  has begun a historic meeting in which it will determine whether to more strictly regulate the #Internet . The Democratic-led commission is expected to decide 3-to-2, split along party lines, to assert extra government authority over the Internet. The new rules would establish a concept called "net neutrality." It's like equal opportunity for Internet speeds and access to websites. #netneutrality  http://cnnmon.ie/1Bhafnp

#Reddit  is updating its #privacy  policy to prohibit posting nude and sexual images without the consent of the subject. The change, which will go into effect March 10, is a departure for the sprawling online community, which has avoided policing non-consensual explicit content. It's only a first step, but for activists who have been pushing to get the issue of revenge porn taken seriously by tech companies and lawmakers, it's an important victory. http://cnnmon.ie/1zeKwq0

The Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight on May 2 will probably be the single biggest payday for any professional athlete ever. The two fighters will be duking it out to split a prize of about $200 million, according estimates. #Pacquiao  has agreed to take home 40% of the purse, or about $80 million, while #Mayweather   would get almost $120 million. The final total will depend on just how well the historic fight sells, both on TV and off. http://cnnmon.ie/1FPFKYv

He called one of the writers, David Corn, a "disgusting piece of garbage," a "guttersnipe liar," and a "far-left assassin."

Several months after her 27-year-old son was struck and killed by a New York City police car, Laverne Dobbinson received a letter from Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson that made a terrible situation even worse. The letter, which was addressed to her deceased son, demanded the payment of $710 in damages to the police car that had hit him. “It just blew my mind that they wanted to charge me for the police car that actually killed my son,” she said. The New York City Law Department did not respond to a request for comment, but at the time of the incident the city acknowledged the letter was sent in error and said it regretted the mistake. #abovethelaw   #Debtcollectionnightmares   http://cnnmon.ie/1Ao8nHy

Forget plain, flat photos. In the future, Facebook wants you to share a 360˚ view of your exotic experiences too. #Facebook  is working on integrating virtual reality into your newsfeed. Users could be virtually inside the cockpit of an F/A-18 Hornet flying over Colorado with the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy's flight demonstration squadron. Or a person can be transported to Mongolia and be inside a tent with a woman cooking food and a fire nearby or check out the sweeping vista. #oculus   #virtualreality  http://cnnmon.ie/1ERDgET

Over the course of a few months, a debt collector you’ve probably never heard of spends more money wooing politicians than most Americans earn in a year. Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson has countless politicians -- from school board members to state lawmakers -- on its side. It takes them to fancy dinners and spends millions on their campaigns. It even puts current elected officials on its payroll. These connections have paid off big time. #AboveTheLaw   http://cnnmon.ie/1EQzbB0

So, so cute. So, so costly. To prepare, primp and promote a dog that can compete with the beautiful canines that strutted their stuff this week at the 2015 Westminster Dog Show can easily run you $50,000 to $100,000 a year. That's according to Michael Canalizo, a former professional dog handler and show-dog owner who now runs event management for the American Kennel Club. #wkcdogshow   #AmericanKennelcClub   #beagle   #MissP   #BestinShow    http://cnnmon.ie/1vWxGlz
