That's not my opinion. That's what the data says.
Bergdahl left his post in Afghanistan before being captured and held captive for five years. For that, he faces charges that carry a maximum penalty of life in a military prison, and he could also have to forfeit pay and be stripped for his rank, Army Col. Daniel King said as he announced the charges.
Bergdahl now faces a military procedure similar to a grand jury deciding whether charges are appropriate, King said. Then, he could face court martial proceedings.
Let's be absolutely clear about one thing: An electric fan is not an "electronic device." If the debate organizers did prohibit "electronic devices (including fans)", that would only apply to fans containing electronics. That's not a technicality and it's not "Clintonian parsing." Words mean things.
Oh, just one more thing, sir...
Some of the early reports out of Las Vegas characterized cop-killers Jerad and Amanda Miller as neo-Nazis and white supremacists. This talking point is likely to gain currency as teabaggers and right-wing libertarians, in government and outside it, seek to avoid scrutiny of their own extremist beliefs by creating artificial distance between themselves and the Millers. It's important that this falsehood not go unrebutted.
During the final minute of the NFC Championship game Sunday between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks, with Seattle leading by 6, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick targeted receiver Michael Crabtree in the Seahawks end zone with a pass that, if successful, would almost certainly have won the game for San Francisco. Instead, in a play that is destined to go down in franchise history, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman tipped the pass to teammate Malcolm Smith for an interception. Now the Seahawks will be facing the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, while the 49ers will be watching it on television, like the rest of us.
Minutes later, Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews buttonholed Sherman for a brief but memorable sideline interview that turned out to be unlike any athlete interview you've ever seen.
Unfortunately, the code that powers Facebook still knows what you typed – even if you decide not to publish it. It turns out the things you explicitly choose not to share aren't entirely private.Facebook is keeping track of the things you don't even publish, those dark thoughts from deep inside the human id that you regret so much that you never even finished them before consigning them to what you thought was digital oblivion. Facebook keeps track of every last character of it for God only knows how long, promiscuously handing it over to academics to practice repeated and wanton analysis on. It's all just so dystopic!
Facebook calls these unposted thoughts "self-censorship", and insights into how it collects these non-posts can be found in a recent paper written by two Facebookers. Sauvik Das, a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon and summer software engineer intern at Facebook, and Adam Kramer, a Facebook data scientist, have put online an article presenting their study of the self-censorship behaviour collected from 5 million English-speaking Facebook users. It reveals a lot about how Facebook monitors our unshared thoughts and what it thinks about them...
Except it isn't, because none of it is true. None of it. Every word is false.
Here at the Daily Kos International Command Silo, we work hard every day to improve the site experience for you, our valued members. For many months, we've been working on a new and improved version of the site, codenamed "Daily Kos 5," which we've designed to address some of the complaints and concerns that many of you have communicated to us about the current iteration of the site, called Daily Kos 4. We're pleased to announce that the new version of the site is almost ready for beta testing, and we're ready to retire the "Daily Kos 5" codename and take the wraps off the final name.
Introducing... Daily Kos 3.
The Daily Kos FAQ is old, hosted on a moribund wiki that most current users are probably barely aware exists. The FAQ itself admits it's old and that the technical sections of the page are obsolete. And yet, to this day there is a link to it in the footer of every single page on this site. Until Markos disavows it or gives us something better, it is still the only resource I'm aware of that asks and answers the question "What is the purpose of this site?" And here's what it says:
In the wake of the German grocery store that believes it owns the word "Metro", Rupert Murdoch's Sky Broadcasting is forcing Microsoft to change the name of its SkyDrive cloud service, because sky.
Microsoft is going to have to rename its SkyDrive cloud storage service after agreeing to submit to a British court's ruling over ownership of the brand name.This is why we can't have nice things.
British Sky Broadcasting Group, the European satellite broadcasting arm of Rupert Murdoch's media empire, took on Redmond over the rights to the SkyDrive name, pointing out that BSkyB had got there in advance of Microsoft's marketing cohorts. In June, UK High Court Judge Sarah Asplin found against Microsoft, and Redmond has submitted to the verdict.
Actually, "WRONG" puts it a bit too strongly. It's more accurate to say that the headline on the Guardian's sensational new XKEYSCORE story is not backed up by the story itself. If you feel I've used a misleading headline myself to sucker you in here, I'm sorry. I learned from the best.
