  • Early reports are sketchy about the Washington, D.C. shipyard shootings. CBS D.C. has reported one shooter, while at last check, The Washington Post is reporting three. Radio station WTOP is live blogging, with photographs from the scene. Source: WTOP… 

 

  • Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, reiterated the tech industry’s call for greater transparency from the US government over surveillance on Friday, but declined to “pass judgment” on American spying operations. “There’s been spying for years, there’s been surveillance for years, and so forth, I’m not going to pass judgment on that, it’s the nature of our society,” he said.

  • The recent uproar over armed EPA agents descending on a tiny Alaska mining town is shedding light on the fact that 40 federal agencies – including nearly a dozen typically not associated with law enforcement – have armed divisions.

  • Is there an American equivalent to Russell Brand? Brand penned a rant for The Guardian Friday, sending up corporatists and politicians for their sanctimonious response after he bit the corporate hand that fed him – Hugo Boss – at a posh fashion awards ceremony last week. “Why are public officials, paid by us, turning up at events for fashion magazines?” he asked. “Well, the reason I was there was because I have a tour on and I was advised it would be good publicity. What are the politicians selling? How are they managing our perception of them with their attendance of these sequin-encrusted corporate balls? We witness that there is a relationship between government, media and industry that is evident even at this most spurious and superficial level. These three institutions support one another. ” Source: The Guardian…

 

  • “Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?” Be ready to answer those questions and more the next time you go to the doctor, whether it’s the dermatologist or the cardiologist and no matter if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help. And you can thank the Obama health law. Source: The New York Post…
