Facebook’s New Rules

 

October 18, 2013
The New York Times
By JOE NOCERA

 

No sooner had the ink dried on my last column

— about the new Dave Eggers’s novel “The Circle,”

in which he imagines a world without privacy —

than Facebook announced two changes to its privacy settings.

In its short nine-year existence, Facebook has made

many changes to its privacy policies, of course.

More often than not, the changes have enabled

the company to monetize the rich trove of data

it collects from its users.

When you get right down to it,

that’s really all it has to sell.

States Gone Wild

 

March 24, 2013
The New York Times
By BILL KELLER

 

NO sooner had Arkansas adopted

the country’s most regressive abortion law

earlier this month

— a ban after about 12 weeks of pregnancy —

than North Dakota lowered its limit to as early as six weeks.

Both measures are expected to be ruled unconstitutional,

but here’s my question: Is North Dakota

that much more conservative than, say, South Dakota,

where abortions are permitted up to 24 weeks?

Let’s Not Make a Deal

To say the obvious: Democrats won an amazing victory.

Not only did they hold the White House

in a year when their Senate majority

was supposed to be doomed, they actually added seats.

Raped policeman:

'I never thought I would be a victim'

A detective investigating sexual assaults
was devastated when he himself was raped.
But he grew even more angry
when police colleagues
insisted on investigating the crime.
Here he tells his tale anonymously

I've been a police officer for two decades and a detective,

specialising in serious crime and sexual offences,

for 15 years.

Never once [ groupe adverbial ]

in all the time I've investigated these horrific crimes

has it occurred to me that one day I would be a victim;

that I would be raped – and that I would refuse

to help the police investigate.

Teenager stabbed man to death

after 'I feel like killing' message on Facebook

 

Killer given minimum of 17 years

for 'senseless and unprovoked' murder in Bolton bar

A teenager who posted a message on Facebook saying he felt "like killin some1", hours before he stabbed a man to death in a crowded bar, was sentenced to a minimum of 17 years in prison today.

Leon Craig Ramsden, 19, stabbed 31-year-old Paul Gilligan while he was drinking in The Pepper Alley, in Bolton, Lancashire, six months ago.

 

[ ... ]



Outside the court Detective Inspector Mark Roters, from Greater Manchester police, read a statement on behalf of ­Gilligan's partner and family.

The statement read: "We worked so hard for justice to get a young, dangerous, lad off the streets for a long time. This youth has never shown remorse and he felt he was untouchable. He knew he had killed a man, one loved by many, in a heartless, shocking, cowardly stabbing.

"Paul didn't
[ adverbe ] deserve this,
nor
[ adverbe ] would he have anticipated such brutality. He is greatly missed and was such a happy, social, family man. We will never get over his death."

Roters said: "Ramsden is a pathetic individual who believed he had been slighted by Paul in front of a crowd of people. As revenge for this, Ramsden killed him. This was a needless and extremely violent attack that resulted in the death of a father-of-three.

"Ramsden's behaviour has resulted in the loss of well-loved father, son, brother and friend. He now has a long time to reflect on what he has done."

Transcript

Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address

 

January 20, 2009
The New York Times

 

Following is the transcript

of President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address,

as transcribed by CQ Transcriptions:

 

PRESIDENT BARACK Thank you. Thank you.

CROWD: Obama! Obama! Obama! Obama!

My fellow citizens: I stand here today humbled

by the task before us,

grateful for the trust you have bestowed,

mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors.
 

[ ... ]


We are the keepers of this legacy,

guided by these principles once more,

we can meet those new threats that demand

even greater effort, even greater cooperation

and understanding between nations.

We'll begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people

and forge a hard- earned peace in Afghanistan.

With old friends and former foes,

we'll work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat

and roll back the specter of a warming planet.

We will not apologize for our way of life

nor [ adverbe ] will we waver in its defense.

And for those who seek to advance their aims

by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents,

we say to you now that,

"Our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken.

You cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you."

Not since Lyndon Johnson died in 1973

has the US gone through the high pomp and ritual

associated with a presidential state funeral.

Former president Richard Nixon's family,

acting on his wishes, bypassed Washington traditions

when he died in 1994.

US says goodbye to Reagan,
