    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – In the heart of a Nashville area populated with immigrant families, there is a prominent message for Donald Trump on the eve of his weekend presidential campaign visit to Music City. Under the sign for the Ozment Law offices at 1214 Murfreesboro Pike, the message reads “Donald Trump, make Nashville great again. Please leave soon.” It’s a play on the Trump campaign theme of “Make America Great Again!” The sign has already gotten 70 thousand views on Facebook according to Elliott Ozment, who owns the immigration law office bearing his name. He called it a “collaborative...

Logan Hale of Florida's Polk County was suspected of breaking into a home on Aug. 3 and stealing a shotgun and thousands of dollars' worth of jewelry. Police explained all this in a Friday Felons Facebook post that featured Hale, noting that at age 21 he has "been in the Polk County Jail on five prior occasions. SMH." SMH, indeed: Using the Facebook Name "Logan Finallyfree Hale," Hale replied to the post, writing "HELLO here I am" and "Deputies continue to look for me but...

    ST. LOUIS, MO – A mother says she is frustrated with the #BlackLivesMatter protesters in St. Louis. Peggy Hubbard says there is too much black on black crimes. She believes the demonstrators are marching for the wrong people. She says they should be standing up for innocent victims killed every night in the streets of St. Louis. According to our St. Louis affiliate, a 9-year-old girl was shot and killed on Tuesday night while doing homework on her mother’s bed. On Wednesday night protesters took to the streets to march for an 18-year-old shot and killed by police. Officers say...

    Billionaire Facebook investor's anti-immigrant heresy By Owen Thomas, 11:20 AM on Fri Nov 14 2008, 4,806 views Insiders at Clarium Capital, the $5.3 billion hedge fund run by Facebook investor Peter Thiel, are buzzing about their boss's $1 million donation to NumbersUSA, an anti-immigrant group. The donation is an open secret within Clarium, and it has enraged several staff members who joined Clarium because they believed Thiel shared their libertarian ideals. When I asked Thiel if he'd made the donation, an underling passed on a nondenial saying the company didn't comment on "gossip and heresy." A typo — he meant...

It's a horribly mismanaged company—probably a lot of pot-smoking going on there. But it's such a solid franchise it may even work with all that," the co-founder of PayPal and early Facebook investor said.

In an earlier statement, the Irvine, Calif., group said it would contest any attempts to suppress its free-speech rights. It also said in a statement on its Facebook page that it “follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative work.” The letter reflects a growing offensive from state and congressional Democrats in their support of Planned Parenthood.

    Just a little more than a year after it opened, the Moreland Farmers Pantry is closing. Residents of Portland's Westmoreland neighborhood were originally excited for the arrival of a 5,000-square-foot store stocked -- as it advertised -- with non-genetically modified products. But excitement turned to anger for some after comments on the owner's personal Facebook page were made public. In a 2013 post by owner Chauncy Childs, operating under a pseudonym, she said that although she doesn't judge gay people or their desire to be married, and it isn't her place to form opinions about their lifestyle, she thought gay...

Most of the victims of the government’s kidnapping scheme are veterans.

    Three months ago, Harvard student Aran Khanna was preparing to start a coveted internship at Facebook when he launched a browser application from his dorm room that angered the social media behemoth. His application, called Marauder’s Map — a clever name that Harry Potter fans will appreciate — was a Chrome extension that used data from Facebook Messenger to map where users were when they sent messages. The app also showed the locations, which were accurate to within three feet, in a group chat with people he barely knew. That meant complete strangers could hypothetically see that he had messaged...

    “You are forever in our hearts”? Pop singer Beyoncé is taking some flak for a Facebook entry she made in remembrance of the shooting death of Michael Brown. She posted it Sunday, on the one-year anniversary of his death. He was shot and killed in self-defense by former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson. Both a St. Louis County grand jury and a Defense Department investigation cleared Wilson of any charges. Nonetheless, Beyoncé’s post, in the form of a meme, states: “Today we will honor you and continue to fight for society to respect the humanity of all people. You are...

    CLEVELAND. It was billed as The Donald Trump Show, and the Republican front-runner delivered. He mugged. He pouted. He projected outrage without being troubled by specificity or fact. When he got punched — and the moderators threw haymakers all night — he stuck out his chin and punched back. Trump made it through the first Republican debate by avoiding the one mistake that could have seriously damaged his insurgent campaign: sounding like a professional politician. For that reason alone, he seemed to me the clear winner. I watched the debate at the House of Blues in downtown Cleveland with a...

    Trump’s battles with Kelly will probably further burnish the anchorwoman’s reputation as a tough-as-nails television star. The conservative cable news channel has sought to market Kelly as a strong and independent voice. Inside Fox, the view at the end of the debate was that all three moderators — Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace — had fared well, and that Kelly was the stand-out. Some political observers said that Fox’s post-debate coverage seemed tilted against Trump, partly because of a Frank Luntz focus group, convened by Fox and televised immediately after the debate, that had an anti-Trump tone. Trump was...

What makes the confrontation all the more dramatic was that Fox News chairman Roger Ailes has, until this point, been a...

The tattling has also reached social media where residents are using the hashtags 'droughtshaming' and 'watershaming' to reveal any water-wasting activities. An app called DroughtShame was even developed to 'capture geotagged photo proof of disregard for California's water restrictions'.

    I go to FB at least once a day to check on kids. After I visit I go to options and clear my files and caches. I also run Adblock (May the LORD bless it!(now I can go to Brietbart!)) Each time I go to FB it freezes my computer while the disk runs madly. How frozen, chickensoup? Frozen enough that it stopped a cd I was listening to dead in its tracks, only to start back up when unfrozen. If I don't clear my caches and files there is no freezing. Anyone else experience this?

    Facebook not only considers Jewish areas of Judea and Samaria (Shomron), but also parts of Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, as outside of Israel, according to exposé published Sunday. The social network updated its advertising system recently allowing editors of popular pages the chance to gear their posts toward a specific geographical location. […] Channel 2 tested the new system to aim posts in eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem, for example, and saw that the rest of the State of Israel became automatically “greyed out.” The same happened during any attempt to aim posts toward areas over 1949 Armistice lines or...

    The names of the tech workers in this story have been changed.Ten thousand miles from Silicon Valley, in a room near the Black Sea, Yegor Karpenchekov dreams of money. At night, while the rest of Odessa sleeps and cocaine smugglers drift in and out of the port under cover of darkness, Yegor logs onto FaceTime and talks to a 70-year-old woman in San Francisco. Her name is Sally Faubion, and five months ago she recruited Yegor from the freelancer marketplace UpWork to code her apps. She believes "divine intervention" brought them together; for Yegor, it was likely $20 per hour...

William Killian is the Department of Justice official who vowed to criminalize social postings on Facebook and Twitter.

    A mayor in Washington state says he won’t resign after he called First Lady Michelle Obama “gorilla face,” insisting that would mean he’s admitting he’s racist. Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing confirmed to KHQ-6, NBC’s Spokane affiliate, that he indeed did make the offensive statement on his Facebook page, but brushed it off as playful banter between he and his friends. “Gorilla face Michelle, can’t disagree with that,” Rushing wrote. “The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL.” He’s tried to brush it off as “playful back and forth banter that my friends...

    The first images of two warships which sunk after a deadly battle during World War II have emerged. The wrecks lie 20 kilometres apart from each another about 200 kilometres west of Steep Point, Shark Bay in Western Australia, north-west of Perth, and sunk in November 1941.
