notified

Google took almost three years to disclose to the open information group WikiLeaks that it had handed over emails and other digital data belonging to three of its staffers to the US government, under a secret search warrant issued by a federal judge.

WikiLeaks has written to Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, to protest that the search giant only revealed the warrants last month, having been served them in March 2012. In the letter, WikiLeaks says it is “astonished and disturbed” that Google waited more than two and a half years to notify its subscribers, potentially depriving them of their ability to protect their rights to “privacy, association and freedom from illegal searches”.

The letter, written by WikiLeaks’ New York-based lawyer, Michael Ratner of the Center For Constitutional Rights, asks Google to list all the materials it provided to the FBI. Ratner also asks whether the California-based company did anything to challenge the warrants and whether it has received any further data demands it has yet to divulge.

Google revealed to WikiLeaks on Christmas Eve – a traditionally quiet news period – that it had responded to a Justice Department order to hand over a catch-all dragnet of digital data including all emails and IP addresses relating to the three staffers. The subjects of the warrants were the investigations editor of WikiLeaks, the British citizen Sarah Harrison; the spokesperson for the organisation, Kristinn Hrafnsson; and Joseph Farrell, one of its senior editors.

When it notified the WikiLeaks employees last month, Google said it had been unable to say anything about the warrants earlier as a gag order had been imposed. Google said the non-disclosure orders had subsequently been lifted, though it did not specify when.

Police officer Domenico Lillo was charged today with beating a city man during an arrest and then falsifying records to conceal the beating, federal authorities said.

Lillo, 44, was arrested at his home this morning in connection with the arrest of Brandon Walsh, who later sued Lillo and the Bayonne Police Department. Lillo was arraigned earlier this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge James B. Clark III in Newark federal court and released on a $100,000 unsecured bond, authorities said.

Officially, Lillo was charged with the deprivation of civil rights under color of law and falsification of records. The use of excessive force count carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, while the charge of falsifying records carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis, a former police officer, said Lillo was immediately suspended without pay as soon as city officials were notified that he had been charged.

Davis said Lillo’s arrest didn’t come as a surprise.

————————-

Synopsis: 

A long time ago, the world froze over and became engulfed in snow. Most plant life died out and humans went back to living in small tribes. In this world, there is a legend of the ‘Lost Land’, a place where it does not snow and where grass, trees and flowers spread out as far as you can see. However, nobody has ever found it and come back to tell the tale. One day, a young adventurous boy, Aota, finds a mysterious compass that supposedly leads to the Lost Land, and immediately sets off on an adventure to find the secret and mystical land.

Google handed Wikileaks staffers' email over to US Government, didn't tell anyone

Wikileaks has issued a furious denunciation of Google after it learned that the company turned over its staff email to the US Government in March 2012 without notifying it.

This is in contrast to Twitter, which, when served with a warrant for access to Wikileaks staffers’ private tweets, notified the people involved so that they could challenge the warrant. Google says it was bound by a gag-order, though it doesn’t say when that order was lifted.

WikiLeaks demands answers after Google hands staff emails to US government

  • Search giant gave FBI emails and digital data belonging to three staffers
  • WikiLeaks told last month of warrants which were served in March 2012

Google took almost three years to disclose to the open information group WikiLeaks that it had handed over emails and other digital data belonging to three of its staffers to the US government, under a secret search warrant issued by a federal judge.

WikiLeaks has written to Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, to protest that the search giant only revealed the warrants last month, having been served them in March 2012.

Harrison, who also heads the Courage Foundation, told the Guardian she was distressed by the thought of government officials gaining access to her private emails. “Knowing that the FBI read the words I wrote to console my mother over a death in the family makes me feel sick,” she said.

She accused Google of helping the US government conceal “the invasion of privacy into a British journalist’s personal email address. Neither Google nor the US government are living up to their own laws or rhetoric in privacy or press protections”.

Soo I told my boyfriend to notify me when he was gonna cum, then he says "Spitters are for Quitters", is that mysogynistic?

just say “fuk u ill do what i want”

Someone needs to notify Mark of what’s going on. Of course by pure coincidence little miss victim hasn’t bothered to tag him, surely not as a way to avoid him checking the tag and seeing it, no, no. Oh, but you desperately want compensation, correct? Wouldn’t the smart thing to do, be to TAG #markiplier, not just ‘youtube’ and ‘lets players’.

Give me a break.

And no, I’m not a sheeple. I just don’t believe in a lack of proper, fully credible evidene in place of bullshit, botched (and easily photoshopped) evidence that has mysterious disappeared (spooks), nor do I think tweets that aren’t even there are very credible. Also the story can and has been pretty easily debunked by king-of-pachirisus.

But hey, nice try!

My Dirty Little Secret

If only it was as sexy and thrilling as it sounds.

Instead, it makes me question everything that is right with this world. Why, me?

A smart, considerate, well educated, overly cautious person…

Why…do I get stuck with this bullshit secret? 

When I think about all the fun I could have had that would have justified having this secret, I get even more pissed off. 

Forever sentenced…to divulge the ugly truth when my goody two shoes conscience notifies my brain that all ‘systems are GO’…and that the game changing secret must be revealed…despite the fact that it could ruin everything. It fucking sucks. 

I should tattoo it to my face so that the people who cannot handle it will just move along, and I will know to avoid them.

I need Klayley to talk about Hope. The last time they talked about her was ep. 3 I think. They didn't even show us Klayley saying goodbye as they go back to the Compound. The last two times Klayley even talked together they talked about Elijah (notifying of Jayley marriage and the Halijah sex) - ugh. It doesn't look like they'll even have scenes together in 2/11 so I guess we have to wait for 2x12. If Hayley's upset because of Elijah, I may just barf. They better be arguing about Hope. Please.

ughh yes I need them to talk about her as well. They kinda talked about her back at the safe house but the last time they had a one on one mention of her was in episode 3. I need them to sit down, just the two of them and argue about her or make some decisions about her, either will suffice. I also need to see more scenes of the three of them, and more scenes of Klaus and hope nope I’m not better there’s been more scenes of elijah with hope and elijah with hayley and hope I’m not bitter about it at all 

I think we’ll get some good stuff in the upcoming episodes ,some really good stuff and I’m sure Hope will come up more than once. I’m not setting my expectations TOO high, but let’s just say some good klayley things are probably on the horizon. I HIGHLY doubt that anything Klaus and Hayley are arguing about is gonna have something to do with elijah. They’ve had their convo about that already and I dont’ see another on coming up soon, I doubt Klaus wants to dwell on that. I think they are about to have some intense moments about this upcoming werewolf ritual and what hayley’s willing to do for these wolves. We know from spoilers that the rituals are gonna be dangerous and that some shady shit might be going on. I think Klaus is gonna have some major concerns about it all. He’s down for the marriage but he’s not gonna be okay with Hayley risking her life for the sake of this plan. Hayley will probably feel like either the risk isn’t that big or it’s worth it and she can handle it and come out unscathed. Klaus is probably gonna be of the opinion that she shouldn’t even risk it period, not just a little bit. I think all of their upcoming moments will be all about the marriage to jackson/wolves, and how to handle keeping hope safe and tucked away because that plan is in jeapordy right now as well. I’m really looking forward to seeing exactly how this all unfolds and how Hayley and Klaus handle disagreeing and how Klaus handles a threat to Hayley’s life. Should be pretty good tbh so don’t worry anon. 

Never Let Me Go || Julie & Leo

Receiving a text from your kidnapped wife’s phone was haunting in itself. Receiving a text when the phone sat right next to you was scarier. Leo was afraid to look at his phone after seeing Julie’s name pop up, notifying him of a text message. Needless to say, he had been a bit paranoid the past few days,  and whoever was messing with him was not helping. 

"Just open it.." he mumbled to himself before looking around the house, making sure no one broke in or was watching from outside. Once he felt safe again, he picked up his phone and opened the message from "Julie". 

If you want to see Julie, meet us at 1200 Oak Street at 2pm. No earlier. No Later. Bring 100k and come alone. We’re ready for a trade, you and the money for her. Don’t meet our terms, she dies.

Leo’s eyes went wide as he read the text. She’s alive.. Julie’s alive. That’s the one thing he needed to know more than anything. But here it was. The message he and the police had been waiting for. 

"Jed.." Leo called to him from his spot in the kitchen and Jed came into the room quickly. 

"What’s wrong?" He questioned, his eyes soon focusing on the phone as Leo handed it to him, showing him the message. "Don’t do anything yet. One of them might be watching to make sure you don’t call the police, okay?" Leo nodded at his words and then after discussing with him, he went down to the studio and dialed the detective’s number. The detective laughed at the fact that whoever hacked into Julie’s iMessage forgot that the police would be able to track where the text came from. Though they could only hope it would be from the same place Julie was being held captive. 

A plan to meet with Alexis (the suspect in Leo’s eyes) was settled with the police, as well as Leo’s bodyguards. It was still early, way before 2, as dozens of undercover officers went to casually scope out the area, which ended up being an abandoned drive-in. It was a lot of open space. Almost impossible for over thirty officers to hide out casually. Almost. 

With a duffle bag of bricks, heavy enough to fake as 100k in cash, Leo made his way to the desolate drive-in theater. He was carefully wired, able to talk and hear everything the officers might have to say to him. And he was ready to do whatever had to be done in order to save Julie’s life. His heart started to pound in his chest, wondering if they would bring Julie with them or if she’d be left at the house they were keeping her. Would Leo finally get to see the only person who made his world turn again?
