    It is sickening to see media calling “Ukrainian separatists” bunch of Russian masked military thugs executing Putin’s order to annex Ukrainian territory. When Yanukovych “thing” did not work out, Ukrainians froze at Maidan to put end to “joining Putin's great mother Russia”, Putin mobilized his army at Ukrainian border, took over Crimea and now is biting more pieces of Ukraine. Ukrainian people, even Russian speaking and especially Crimean Tatars do not want to be part of the Putin’s great Russian empire again or ever. Masked spetznatz and Russian military personnel with modern armaments, no markings, are not Ukrainian separatists!!!!!! If...

    Trying to watch top sports events I find it very annoying to be subjected to: 1. World soccer cup in South Africa were being "cheered" by screaming vuvuzelas - buzzing non stop during the games. 2. NHL Stanley Cup finals. The best of the best games are being interfered with by jerks banging on the glass barriers. Very annoying. Can't the announcer at the games ask the jerks to refrain from banging on the glass as a courtesy to TV viewers who provide the revenue for the NHL? What are the jerks trying to achieve with banging? Scare the players?...

    Flipping through the channels, I stopped at the program showing D-day remembrance at Normandy beach. President of France is giving speech, remembering the D-day, sacrifices and thanking veterans for their contribution to freedom. World dignitaries are sitting in the audience along with remaining veterans, Queen of England with her husband and other heads of states. Among them camera swings to our Barak Hussein Obama, President of the USA - CHEWING FREAKIN' GUM! Another example of his "respect" for non-muslim warriors.

    7 Reasons why the Crimea has avoided bloodshed and why region was and remains Ukrainian  by Alexander Briginets This top 7 reasons - is the result of my many meetings in the Crimea with people of different views and opinions. I am deeply convinced that the chances of implementation of Putin's scenario in Crimea are slim or nil. The first reason - the right decisions and heroism of Ukrainian soldiers. Russia was expecting 2 options: aggressive response with firearms or defection to the Russian side. All commanders without central guidance made the right decision - passive resistance.

    Manifesto of free citizens of Ukraine and Russia We, Russians and Ukrainian have nothing to share except a desire to see each other to live in prosperous countries.

We believe in a future in which Moscow and Kyiv are not usurped by Soviet dreamers, players with geopolitics or the usual fraudulent scams. We condemn any attempt of former KGB regain power in the sovereign nation-states. Free Ukrainians with their tragic example have shown, what is the price of freedom. They showed how to cleanse their land...

    Summary: We know that there's no such thing as a completely secure computer system. Is the NSA the nation's largest security risk of them all? Many are concerned about the National Security Agency (NSA) collection of data on US companies and individuals and the very real possibility that it has a way of directly accessing the servers of the world's largest computing platforms: Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc. It's certainly a situation that deserves attention and concern. But what's missing in this discussion is this: how secure is the NSA's spying system? If a foreign entity wanted to spy on US...

    Since National Public Radio fired Juan Williams last week for controversial remarks about Muslims, Fox News pundits have waged war on public broadcasting. They've called for defunding it completely, something conservatives have wanted for decades. Led by Sarah Palin, a chorus of commentators including Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich, and Karl Rove are trying to paint public broadcasting as the "mouth of socialism" in a ploy to simultaneously attack NPR and fire up their base a week before Americans head to the polls. In a corporate media landscape where "news" is about little more than partisanship and infotainment, we...

    I tried to tune to Glenn Beck show on the NYC radio WOR 710 but instead of Glenn's fiery voice I hear pacifying voice and music of Cousin Brucie. WOR Web radio had some infomercial and John Gambling (reruns?) Will Glenn be off FOX News Channel? Hmmmm! Check of the web WOR site gives no clues, just link to another station WYXC 1270 in Cartersville, GA. There he was, sounded a bit muted. What is going on??? NaziRATs started the march on our freedoms? 0bama "fixing" America quickly before people will wake up? Looks like instead of tea parties march...

    The FBI used a novel type of remotely installed spyware last month to investigate who was e-mailing bomb threats to a high school near Olympia, Wash. Federal agents obtained a court order on June 12 to send spyware called CIPAV to a MySpace account suspected of being used by the bomb threat hoaxster. Once implanted, the software was designed to report back to the FBI with the Internet Protocol address of the suspect's computer, other information found on the PC and, notably, an ongoing log of the user's outbound connections.

    WASHINGTON--Politicians charged on Tuesday that peer-to-peer networks can pose a "national security threat" because they enable federal employees to share sensitive or classified documents accidentally from their computers. At a hearing on the topic, Government Reform Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) said, without offering details, that he is considering new laws aimed at addressing the problem. He said he was troubled by the possibility that foreign governments, terrorists or organized crime could gain access to documents that reveal national secrets. Also at the hearing, Mark Gorton, the chairman of Lime Wire, which makes the peer-to-peer software LimeWire, was assailed for...

    Anyone who has sat around a poker table knows the feeling. You have been dealt a strong hand but the steely eyed fellow opposite keeps raising the stakes. Eventually, your nerve breaks. Even as your adversary scoops the pot you know in your heart it was a bluff. Pride demands you pretend otherwise. Vladimir Putin is a leader who has been enjoying his winnings. For Mr Putin, the purpose of the St Petersburg summit was to reassert Russia's role as a global superpower. The task was made easy by the fact that his fellow leaders in the Group of Eight...

    An "orange coalition" is still the most likely outcome of a Ukrainian election won by the revolution's opponent, says Taras Kuzio. ANALYSIS & COMMENTARY: By Taras Kuzio Open Democracy, London, UK, Tuesday, March 28, 2006 Ukraine held its fourth parliamentary elections on 26 March in an atmosphere totally different to earlier elections. President Viktor Yushchenko can be credited with ensuring that it has been Ukraine's first free and fair poll since the country became an independent state in January 1992. The democratic breakthrough initiated by the orange revolution of November 2004-January 2005 has been consolidated. This is in stark contrast...
