    Okay...I haven't posted in some time but just thought this was funny and had to post somewhere. I'm a bereaved father and author of several grief recovery and support books. I'm working on my sixth book now - this one discussing the return to work following the loss of a loved one. Regardless, I was just curious about the proper use of the words "toward" and "towards" and of course went off to the interwebs to research. There I came across the website Learner's Dictionary and got what I wanted (both correct - writer's choice...just use them the same throughout...
  • Public Forums Should Be Open and Uncensored

    President Trump may not block even rude or obnoxious criticism from his Twitter account, because it is a public forum that is protected by the First Amendment, US District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald has ruled. The President’s use of his Twitter account to comment on important policy, personnel and personal announcements made it a public forum, akin to a park or town square, she concluded.Blocking unwanted tweets is thus viewpoint discrimination, which public officials are not permitted to engage in. Indeed, his Twitter account is not just a public forum. It is also “government space,” and thus may not...

    CIA documents published by WikiLeaks show that the CIA kept a database of “Japanese style faces” to utilize in online forums. The WikiLeaks data dump, which consists of 8,761 files and documents, was taken from a high-security isolated network situated inside the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Within the data dump a folder called “Japanese Style Faces” can be found. These consist of ASCII expressions designed to represent faces and emotions, commonly used on internet message boards to denote a particular reaction. Some of the faces are listed below.

    Currently, Topics are tied individual Forums, such that the 50 states (but not DC) show up as Topics for a thread posted in or moved to the GOP forum -- but the 50 states (and DC) show up as "US:(state name)" in threads posted in or moved to the News forum. Those state lists don't cross. Same goes for the duplicate Topics found in Chat and Blogger forums -- and those lists are all separate from one another.

    Jihadist web forums lit up on Tuesday with anti-American radicals celebrating Monday’s terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon, which killed three and wounded at least 170. According to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors the online web activities of radical Muslim groups and individuals, “jihadists expressed their joy and hoped the blasts are acts of jihadi terrorism.” “We ask Allah that this is the start before the storm,” said one user on one Jihadist forum. “May Allah give you the glad tiding of Paradise for this joyous news.” Some forum users hoped a Jihadist group was behind the attacks. Others speculated...

  • Al-Qaeda’s Online Forums Go Dark For Extended Period

    Al-Qaeda’s main Web forums have been offline for the past 11 days in what experts say is the longest sustained outage of the sites since they began operating eight years ago. No one has publicly claimed responsibility for disabling the sites, but the breadth and the duration of the outages have prompted some experts to conclude the forums have been taken down in a cyberattack — launched perhaps by a government, government-backed organization or hacking group. The first Web site, Shumukh al-Islam, a primary source for al-Qaeda videos and messages, went down on March 22, and since then four others...
