Australia Resorts to Guilt and Threats Against Indonesia, Attempting to Spare Bali Nine Members From Execution.

657728-41caba2a-b6f4-11e4-b41b-d516c533d6a5.jpg

For several weeks now the Australian government and media have constantly barraged headlines with opposition to the execution of two members of the Bali Nine, a group of convicted drug smugglers. Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan. The two were a part of nine people convicted of planning to smuggle 8.3 kg of heroin valued at about $4 million from Indonesia to Australia. Citing support for human rights (of which Australia really has nothing to be proud of), the Prime Minister and multiple politicians have now attempted to remind the Indonesian government of the aid that Australians provided during the aftermath…

Australian Mandatory Government Data Retention Con Will Cost $400m for Your “Freedom” and “Safety”

tony-abbott-skype.jpg

The cost of keeping data for telecommunication companies and their customers for a minimum of 24 months will be as much as $400 million but Prime Minister Tony Abbott has stated that the price of not storing electronic communication records is "incalculable". The government is refusing to, however, reveal the costs that the taxpayers and telco customers will face. "Metadata and its retention is more important than ever if we are going to be able to track what criminals are doing, whether it be criminals who want to commit terrorist offences, whether it be criminals who are committing corporate offences,…

Silk_Road_Seized_2014.png

The [alleged] creator of Silk Road, an online website found on the dark web, has been convicted and could face a lengthy jail sentence. Ross Ulbricht, aged 30, was shown to have amassed a fortune of $18 million from the underground internet site which provided a platform for more than one million drug deals in nearly three years. The verdict was returned after a few hours of deliberations at the end of a trial considered a landmark case in the world of online crime and government surveillance. Ulbricht, who was arrested in October 2013, pleaded not guilty to seven charges…

Delta and Southwest Planes Landed After Twitter Prankster Claims to Have Smuggled Bombs.

A pair of F-16 fighter jets has escorted two US commercial airliners to their landing in Atlanta following an online bomb threat. Twitter user @kingZortic sent out tweets to Delta and Southwest airlines suggesting he had smuggled explosives onto flights and threatened to detonate them. Two flights were then grounded at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta before the FBI and specialist officers raided the planes. The bomb threat turned out to be counterfeit with the Twitter user confirming it was not actually true. The users’ Twitter account was later suspended.

Why Does Depicting Prophet Muhammad Annoy Some of the Muslims?

Muhammad-04.jpg

Why exactly do Muslims dislike the depiction of Prophet Muhammad? – a question we’re all asking ourselves a little more since the deadly attack on French magazine Charlie Hebdo. More-so, why are there certain Muslims blowing up over those who depict their Prophet (figuratively as well as literally). The attacks on Charlie Hebdo were inarguably far from common. Think back to September 2012 when the YouTube teaser for a film titled “Innocence of Muslims” caused global rioting, deaths and destruction. There is no verse in the Quran prohibiting people to record the Prophet’s image, Islam and Prophet Muhammad objected to…

Gamblers, Transgenders, Voyeurs and People With Fetishes May Be Unable to Hold Driver’s Licence in Russia in Effort to Crack Down on Road Accidents.

304776277_a95c879768.jpg

It’s a move that will surely raise criticism and controversy within the country but more so outside of it. The Russian government has released a legislative document which outlines a revised set of medical controls for drivers in an effort to cut down on the number of car accidents, listing sexual confusion, gender identity and fetishes. Although most of these new provisions refer to physical impairments that are entirely reasonable — terrible eyesight for example — the document mentions "gender identity disorders" including "transsexualism” and “dual-role transvestism” as well as “sadomasochism" and “exhibitionism" as concerns. Psychological issues such as "Pathological…

MMXIV: The Year in Review

2014inreview.png

2014 was a year marked by political turmoils, tragedy and innovation. In January, the unrest in Ukraine began with hundreds of protesters killed and injured after President Viktor Yanukovych abandoned signing a free-trade deal with the European Union. This led to the tense situations with the western world after Crimean parliament voted yes to joining Russia in February. In February, the still-dominating issue of Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa raised fears and concerns for those in the surrounding areas and later in parts of Europe and the United States. In March, the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a Boeing 777…

449197_630x354.jpg

Violent protests have erupted again in the United States after yet another 18 year old black male was shot dead by police. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar stated the officer was questioning the 18-year-old and another man about a theft late at a convenience store in Berkeley when the young man pulled a 9mm handgun on him. The officer stumbled backward but fired three shots, one of which struck the victim. Belmar declined to name the 18-year-old killed in Berkeley, but he has since been identified as Antonio Martin. Whilst the racism and profiling in this particular case…
