EVERYBODY HATES DONALD?

Problem

The Donald is going to visit his roots, but the locals are looking at this visit as more like a root canal. The Tripping Up Trump group is welcoming their native son of a few Golf Tees to Scotland with a Mexican flag propped up near his outer course.

CONGRESSIONAL INTERNET HEARINGS

News

Why?
A few infringing links are enough to justify censoring an entire site, blocking good content along with the bad.
How?
The US will be able to block a site’s web traffic, ad traffic and search traffic using the same website censorship methods used by China, Iran and Syria.
Who's at risk?
Your favorite websites both inside and outside the US could be blocked based on an infringement claim.
Could this pass?
Yes. The Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT IP Act have widespread support in Congress and are expected to pass.

SEVERE WEATHER WARNINGS

News

A bout of bad weather is heading toward the East Coast after two days of violent tornadoes and heavy rainfall pummeled the Midwest.

The National Weather Service predicted a chance of severe weather from northern Virginia all the way to the state of Maine.

Damaging winds and heavy downpours are expected to be the main threats, but small hail and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out, according to the weather service's website.
