‘And I voted for Trump! So there!’: Woman accuses black Michaels employees of discrimination
Man we live in weird times.

“It just sounded like a disgruntled customer for a second,” Grady told The Washington Post. “And then she made a homophobic slur, she started cussing the manager, all sorts of things. It just kind of got out of control. So I waited, but it was like, when she started yelling African American women are discriminating against me, that’s when I pulled out my phone.”

Two extensions released to report fake news sites
The "Fake News Alert" Chrome extension, created by New York magazine journalist Brian Feldman, joins the B.S. Detector Chrome extension launched Tuesday that identifies hoax news articles on Facebook.

Both extensions rely on a manual list of sites likely to contain false information presented as news.

Fake News Alert uses a list of misleading websites compiled by a media studies professor. The list includes hoax sites like Breitbart and InfoWars as well as satirical sites like ClickHole that could confuse some readers.

Anybody else find it interesting/frightening that Breitbart is considered bogus by both of these and yet its chairman, Stephen K. Bannon, helped run Trumps campaign. Then on Sunday, Trump named Mr. Bannon as his chief White House strategist and senior counselor.

Lexus covered a car with 41,999 LEDs
According to Lexus, the car features three different modes:"Attract mode features a loop of colorful graphics that highlight the strong lines of the IS and play into its bold styling. Music Viz mode is designed to respond to music, as the LEDs will create custom, responsive displays that perfectly sync to any song. Gesture mode allows the motion of the LED animations to be controlled by users’ hand movements with the help of a gaming console. This mode directly connects the car and the driver, allowing the person to send a signal and see the car respond."

Republican Elector Vows To Vote Against Donald Trump
In an op-ed published Monday in The New York Times, Christopher Suprun, a paramedic and first responder to the Pentagon on Sept. 11, laid out a lengthy list of concerns about Trump. He called on fellow electors to “do their job” and unify around an “honorable and qualified” alternative.

He argues that the Electoral College is tasked with ensuring candidates are “qualified, not engaged in demagogy, and independent from foreign influence.” Trump, he said, does not meet these standards, and should therefore be rejected from the White House.

“Mr. Trump lacks the foreign policy experience and demeanor needed to be commander in chief ... Mr. Trump urged violence against protesters at his rallies during the campaign. He speaks of retribution against his critics.”

Dakota Access Pipeline opponents get a win
This doesn't mean it's over but the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it won't grant an easement that would've allowed the pipeline's builders to run the conduit under Lake Oahe, a reservoir near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

“Santa vs. Jesus”: A Holiday Card Game for the Whole Family
Obviously... I need this game. It was funded via crowd-sourcing site Kickstarter which said it was the “most complained about game in history”.

But fans have called it “good fun”.

Danny Webster, spokesperson for the Evangelical Alliance, says he believes a board game helping people learn about Jesus at Christmas would be “a great innovation” but he has a problem with the Santa vs Jesus game because “it trivialises Christian belief and equates them both as fictional characters.“

It's like he's TRYING to make me want it more! Also... the reviews on Amazon are hilarious.

2,000 Military veterans to gather at Standing Rock
Veterans Stand for Standing Rock says 2,000 veterans will gather Sunday in Fort Yates, which is on the reservation. The organization says they'll be bused to the protesters' main camp on Monday and spend most of Tuesday and Wednesday on the front lines.

The group has set up a page at GoFundMe.com (https://www.gofundme.com/veterans-for-standing-rock-nodapl) to raise money for food, transportation and supplies. As of Wednesday afternoon, it had raised nearly $700,000 of its $1 million goal.

According to the GoFundMe site, those involved are “veterans of the United States Armed Forces, including the U.S. Army, United States Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard.”

Bring Body armor, gas masks, earplugs AND shooting mufflers (we may be facing a sound cannon) but no drugs, alcohol or weapons.”___

The Story of King Solomon
Why does the supposed wisest man in the world make such poor decisions? Why does God’s advice in 1 Kings contradict what He says in other parts of the Bible? Are marriages between one man and one woman, or one man and his 700 wives and 300 concubines?

Oh.. and it's all cited so you can read up for yourself.

I can't believe this crap will soon be coming from the official POTUS account
Trump tweeted that if someone burns the US flag "there must be consequences — perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!" - despite clear precedent by the Supreme Court that it's protected by the First Amendment.

And then... "The man who will lead the free world could not stop attacking CNN." Unreal.

Massive ice sheet is cracking due to warming oceans

If the glacier break is a sign of things to come, it reinforces predictions that humanity is in for a rough ride as the Earth warms up. Scientists believe that the entire West Antarctica Ice Sheet is likely to collapse within the next 100 years, sending a massive volume of water into the sea. That would be enough to raise the global sea level by almost 10 feet and flood coastal cities. The newly analyzed satellite data suggests that the collapse could happen sooner than later, and possibly within your lifetime.

Trump profits by keeping his home base in Trump Tower
Using taxpayer money for the housing of Secret Service agents and other authorities during presidential ventures away from the White House isn't new; presidents from both parties have incurred such costs. And staying in Trump tower could save the government money in hotel bookings.

But the big deal with Trump is that the taxpayer money will be going directly to Trump himself, meaning he will profit off of that money spent on security.

Court Blocks Overtime Pay Law That Would Have Affected More Than 4 Million Workers
The new rules would raise the threshold when companies can deny overtime pay from $23,660 to $47,500. Those earning more than $47,500 could still be eligible for overtime pay if they do not perform managerial or supervisory duties (a so-called "white collar exemption"). The new rules would particularly affect industries like retail or fast food, where employees are often designated as managers and made to work long hours for flat salaries.

Is there much proactive work going on to improve it, or are the Linux vendors mainly reactive?"

Tesla flexes muscles - powers an entire island with solar energy*
Tesla plans to wire up the entire island of Ta’u in American Samoa with solar panels to solve the island’s intermittent power problems.

While Ta’u previously relied on diesel generators for its power, Tesla has installed a microgrid of solar panels and batteries that will “supply nearly 100 percent” of the energy required by the island’s 600 residents.

This guy made a Beastie Boys remix album using only Daft Punk samples
HOLY SHIT! THIS IS AMAZING!

Titled Daft Science, Canadian producer Coins’ ambitious project strips down multiple Daft Punk to tracks their core elements, before melding their parts around various Beastie Boys hits such as “Root Down,” “Check It Out,” and “Body Movin.'” The result is an 8-track album bearing intriguing sonic combinations that are nearly comparable in quality to the original versions.

The entire album is also available for free.

But Trump totally isn't a racist ya'll
He's appointed Steve Bannon as White House chief strategist. Bannon ran Breitbart from March 2012 to August 2016. He then went on to become Trump's campaign's CEO.

Resurface audio shows Bannon takes issue with Silicon Valley's Asian CEOs and H-1B visas saying, "When two-thirds or three-quarters of the CEOs in Silicon Valley are from South Asia or from Asia, I think... A country is more than an economy. We're a civic society." (https://goo.gl/Mmv5RJ) I don't know how else to interpret that other than that people from Asia are deteriorating civic society?

The Anti-Defamation League's Jonathan Greenblat noted of Bannon: "It is a sad day when a man who presided over the premier website of the 'alt-right' - a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and... more »

The Anti-Defamation League's Jonathan Greenblat noted of Bannon: "It is a sad day when a man who presided over the premier website of the 'alt-right' - a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists - is slated to be a senior staff member in the 'people's house.'"

After Bannon's promotion was announced, the Southern Poverty Law Center tweeted several controversial stories written by Breitbart under Bannon's lead: “Stephen Bannon was the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill,” the group wrote in a statement. “Trump should rescind this hire. In his victory speech, Trump said he intended to be president for 'all Americans.' Bannon should go.”

Evan McMullin, a former CIA operations officer and independent presidential candidate, linked the appointment to Donald Trump's words in the CBS' 60 Minutes interview.

"Saying "stop it" to racist attacks means little when you name white supremacist darling Steve Bannon chief strategist in the very same day," he tweeted. (https://goo.gl/z3bQB9)

I suppose there's Giuliani who's on the short list for a position. Despite being... well... himself... he's been a huge defender of undocumented workers which is in stark contrast to Trump's positions (https://goo.gl/yo75AR):

"Some of the hardest-working and most productive people in this city are undocumented aliens," Giuliani said in 1994.
"I think New York City should not deal with undocumented immigrants in a harsh way," Giuliani said in 2001.___

Two extensions released to report fake news sites
The "Fake News Alert" Chrome extension, created by New York magazine journalist Brian Feldman, joins the B.S. Detector Chrome extension launched Tuesday that identifies hoax news articles on Facebook.

Both extensions rely on a manual list of sites likely to contain false information presented as news.

Fake News Alert uses a list of misleading websites compiled by a media studies professor. The list includes hoax sites like Breitbart and InfoWars as well as satirical sites like ClickHole that could confuse some readers.

Anybody else find it interesting/frightening that Breitbart is considered bogus by both of these and yet its chairman, Stephen K. Bannon, helped run Trumps campaign. Then on Sunday, Trump named Mr. Bannon as his chief White House strategist and senior counselor.

I'm guessing I'll be seeing pigs fly soon?

This is actually all really good news in my opinion and something that will benefit all sorts of developers.

SURPRISE! Facebook Admits to More False Metrics
"The de-duplicated 7-day summary in the overview dashboard will be 33% lower on average and 28-day will be 55% lower; data in other fields is unaffected. This bug has been live since May; we will be fixing this in the next few weeks."

In other words, Facebook reported figures that inflated the number of users a Facebook page that a organically reached. Facebook also admitted to errors in the way video ads were counted, in Instant Article time-spent counts, and in referrals via apps.

This isn’t the first time Facebook has had to make a mea culpa about metrics. Back in September, the company admitted that it was overestimating its “average duration viewed” metric by 60 to 80 percent.

Noam Chomsky on the aftermath of this election
Is Trump representing a new movement in American politics, or was the outcome of this election primarily a rejection of Hillary Clinton by voters who hate the Clintons and are fed-up with "politics as usual?"

"It's by no means new. Both political parties have moved to the right during the neoliberal period. Today's New Democrats are pretty much what used to be called "moderate Republicans." The "political revolution" that Bernie Sanders called for, rightly, would not have greatly surprised Dwight Eisenhower. The Republicans have moved so far toward a dedication to the wealthy and the corporate sector that they cannot hope to get votes on their actual programs, and have turned to mobilizing sectors of the population that have always been there, but not as an organized coalitional political force:... more »

Noam Chomsky on the aftermath of this election
Is Trump representing a new movement in American politics, or was the outcome of this election primarily a rejection of Hillary Clinton by voters who hate the Clintons and are fed-up with "politics as usual?"

"It's by no means new. Both political parties have moved to the right during the neoliberal period. Today's New Democrats are pretty much what used to be called "moderate Republicans." The "political revolution" that Bernie Sanders called for, rightly, would not have greatly surprised Dwight Eisenhower. The Republicans have moved so far toward a dedication to the wealthy and the corporate sector that they cannot hope to get votes on their actual programs, and have turned to mobilizing sectors of the population that have always been there, but not as an organized coalitional political force: evangelicals, nativists, racists and the victims of the forms of globalization designed to set working people around the world in competition with one another while protecting the privileged and undermining the legal and other measures that provided working people with some protection, and with ways to influence decision-making in the closely linked public and private sectors, notably with effective labor unions.

The consequences have been evident in recent Republican primaries. Every candidate that has emerged from the base -- such as [Michele] Bachmann, [Herman] Cain or [Rick] Santorum -- has been so extreme that the Republican establishment had to use its ample resources to beat them down. The difference in 2016 is that the establishment failed, much to its chagrin, as we have seen.

Deservedly or not, Clinton represented the policies that were feared and hated, while Trump was seen as the symbol of "change" -- change of what kind requires a careful look at his actual proposals, something largely missing in what reached the public. The campaign itself was remarkable in its avoidance of issues, and media commentary generally complied, keeping to the concept that true "objectivity" means reporting accurately what is "within the beltway," but not venturing beyond."___
