Russian hackers publish nearly 5 million Gmail passwords


Nearly 5 million Gmail passwords were published on a Russian-language bitcoin security forum on Tuesday, according to a report from The Daily Dot.

The publisher, known as “tvskit,” claimed 60 percent of the 4,930,000 leaked usernames and passwords are valid. Spanish-, English-, and Russian-language Gmail and Google Plus accounts were targeted, along with user credentials for Russian search engine Yandex.

Many of the leaked accounts have been suspended or have newer passwords, according to The Daily Dot.

Google and Yandex representatives told CNews, a Russia-based news provider, that the data was collected through years of phishing and that their own systems were not compromised.

Medical marijuana is in trouble. We MUST GOTV! (xpost from Florida group)


Medical marijuana is in trouble. We MUST GOTV!

Medical marijuana is polling at 61%. That is barely enough to pass. Remember, in FL ballot initiatives must get at least 60% to pass. Get the young to to vote. And get them to vote for Crist as well!!!!!!!!

He's leading in this poll but it is too close!


body question, might happen to you too

When I was younger, I never had a "catch" in my neck, catch meaning if I leave my neck and head at a certain angle for a while, when I move my head, there is a non-painful snap sensation in my neck. It's simply annoying and nothing to see a doctor over. It's not painful in the slightest.

Happen to you too ?

Economist article alleges slavery wasn't all bad


The Economist has been getting an earful after it published a book review claiming a book unfairly portrayed slave owners. Yeah, you heard me right.

The article published Thursday is a review on Edward Baptist's book, "The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism."

This is the line that has people particularly fired up: "Almost all the blacks in his book are victims, almost all the whites villains. This is not history; it is advocacy."

The Economist didn't waste any time in getting out an apology Friday morning. "There has been widespread criticism of this, and rightly so. Slavery was an evil system, in which the great majority of victims were blacks, and the great majority of whites involved in slavery were willing participants and beneficiaries of that evil."
