'Election Fraud': Steve Bannon's Residency Issues, Explained by Breitbart News Articles
2016-08-27 14:30:18 (8 minutes ago) 
The Trump campaign chief's voter registration problem is extremely serious, according to his own website.

The Guardian dropped an interesting scoop Friday morning about newly ensconced Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon, who apparently “is registered to vote in a key swing state at an empty house where he does not live, in an apparent breach of election laws.” The “swing state” in question is Florida, where Bannon used to live in a rental property in Miami-Dade County that, per the Guardian, has been empty and abandoned for months. Florida state law requires that voters be legal residents of the state in order to register to vote there, but Bannon apparently makes his home in California.

It’s a fascinating story, given that Bannon until recently served as chairman of Breitbart News, a very bad alt-right media outlet that relentlessly hypes the dangers of voter fraud. So, in the spirit of public-interest trolling, let’s try to figure out just how serious Bannon’s alleged infraction is, according to Breitbart News’ voter fraud reporting.

In June 2012, Breitbart published an article under the screaming headline “ELECTION FRAUD: CALIFORNIA UNION OFFICIAL VOTED IN WI RECALL” that seems relevant to Bannon’s residency issues:

Wisconsin state law requires that before a person cast their ballot in a Wisconsin election they be a resident of the state. Specifically, residence is defined as the place “where the person’s habitation is fixed, without any present intent to move, and to which, when absent, the person intends to return.” [Wis. Stat. 6.10(1)]

Shansky’s move to California in March, nearly two months before the election, and acceptance of a job out there would almost certainly mean that he does not qualify as a Wisconsin elector and should not have cast a ballot. He no longer lives in the state and he does not appear regard his move as a mere temporary absence from Wisconsin.

Hmm. This seems like it’s a pretty serious problem for Bannon, given the “ELECTION FRAUD” headline, but let’s dig a little deeper. A few months later, as the presidential election loomed, Breitbart ran another piece on Wisconsin residency requirements that made the case that non-resident voters in a battleground state were a direct threat to democracy:

This vulnerability, due to the current state law, has many concerned over the integrity of the upcoming election. The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board has even promoted this gap of assurance in a fair election through its Twitter feed, encouraging people to register by today, October 17, with no need to prove residence.

[…]

This presents a very real concern regarding the efforts of community organizers and political activists moving into the state of Wisconsin, no doubt a battleground in the presidential race between Barack Obama (D) and Mitt Romney (R), as well as the very tight race between Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D) and former Governor Tommy Thompson (R).

Oh my. Not looking good for Bannon here. Could he be part of an organized effort to skirt residency laws in Florida? It seems irresponsible not to ask, given his website’s reporting on the issue.

But let’s keep spelunking. Here’s a July 2012 Breitbart article taking a victory lap for “new media” after a Wisconsin DA issued subpoenas relating to residency issues involving SIEU organizers who had registered to vote in the state:

Just as we have to do the work of the mainstream media in order to force them to cover the news accurately, it is more than clear, we must also do much of the groundwork of local law enforcement, and investigate these fraudulent occurrences with even more vigilance.

Oh dang. Look out, Steve Bannon. Breitbart News has a moral obligation to dig into the story and, if necessary, alert local law enforcement regarding their findings. This could get ugly for the Trump campaign CEO.

ReactOS 0.4.2 Released: Supports Linux Filesystems, .NET Applications, and Doom 3
2016-08-27 13:41:44 (56 minutes ago) 
Continuing its rapid release cycle, ReactOS has unveiled version 0.4.2 of its free "open-source binary-compatible Windows re-implementation." Slashdot reader jeditobe reports that this new version can now read and write various Linux/Unix file systems like Btrfs and ext (and can read ReiserFS and UFS), and also runs applications like Thunderbird and 7-Zip. ReactOS 0.4.2 also features Cygwin support, .NET 2.0 and 4.0 application support, among other updated packages and revised external dependencies such as Wine and UniATA. The team also worked to improve overall user experience... ReactOS is free. You can boot your desktop or laptop from it. It looks like Windows (a 10-year-old version, anyway), so you already know how to use it. And it'll run some Windows and DOS applications, maybe including DOS games that regular 64-bit Windows can no longer touch. These videos even show ReactOS running Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Doom 3.

Colbert Skewers Epipen Makers and Big Pharma
2016-08-27 13:30:21 (1 hours ago) 
It's not just "pharma bro" Martin Shkreli who's been despicable to patients in need.

Stephen Colbert is fed up with big pharmaceutical's prioritizing of profits over the lives that could be saved by their products.

As Colbert, host of "The Late Show," explained, Mylan Pharmaceuticals has "jacked up" the price of a set of two Epipens "from less than $100 for a pair to over $600." His audience booed.

"That price is enough to send you into shock," joked Colbert. "But don't do it, because you can't afford the pen anymore."

Mylan's defense? The price "has changed over time to better reflect... the value the product provides," revealed Colbert, narrative over a "visual approximation" of the pharmaceutical company as Skeletor, enemy of He-Man.

"To be clear, that value is saving the lives of people who can't breathe," explained Colbert. "Or as Mylan likes to call them, 'gasping cash-filled meat sacks.'"

Colbert is not having the tonedeafness of Mylan CEO Heather Bresch, who doesn't give an inch when asked if she can understand the outrage by the public over the extreme price increase.

If the callous response to outrage over lifesaving medicine's price hikes sounds familiar, that's because Mylan is just following suit of others, such as "pharma bro" Martin Shkreli, "who jacked up the cost of HIV drugs by 5,000 percent," Colbert reminded his audience.

As the audience booed over an unflattering photo of the pharma bro, Colbert made moves to use the Epipen he'd been holding. "That was a close one," he said. "I'm severly allergic to douche."

Two Different Approaches to Debate Prep
2016-08-27 12:41:37 (2 hours ago) 

Washington Post: “Hillary Clinton is methodically preparing for the presidential debates as a veteran lawyer would approach her biggest trial. She pores over briefing books thick with policy arcana and opposition research. She internalizes tips from the most seasoned debate coaches in her party. And she rehearses, over and over again, to perfect the pacing and substance of her presentation.”

“Donald Trump is taking a different approach. He summons his informal band of counselors — including former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, talk-radio host Laura Ingraham and ousted Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes — to his New Jersey golf course for Sunday chats. Over bacon cheeseburgers, hot dogs and glasses of Coca-Cola, they test out zingers and chew over ways to refine the Republican nominee’s pitch.”

“Trump’s aides have put together briefing books, not that the candidate is devoting much time to reading them. Trump is not holding any mock debates, proudly boasting that a performer with his talents does not need that sort of prepping. Should Trump submit to traditional rehearsals, some associates are talking about casting Ingraham, an adversarial chronicler of Clinton scandals, to play the Democratic nominee.”

Mystic Vale review: Don’t just draw cards, craft them
2016-08-27 13:10:19 (1 hours ago) 

Enlarge / A hand in Mystic Vale. In the upper left sit the advancements for purchase, sorted by strength (most powerful in the top row, weakest in bottom row) along with the always-available Fertile Soil cards. To the right are the vale cards, purchased not with mana but with nature symbols. At the bottom is my deck of cards. In this hand, I have stopped after revealing three spoil symbols (the red trees). I add up the symbols on all cards except the "on deck card" atop my pile and find that I have 6 mana (blue orbs), 4 victory points (blue shields), and two green plus one yellow symbols.

The land has fallen under a blight, and the only way for the four Druid clans to gain power from Gaia and restore balance to the Valley of Life is through the time-honored ritual of... adding up blue mana spheres on the cards before you and spending them to buy more cards with more mana spheres. And, sometimes, victory points.

Look—don't ask too many questions about the theme. Mystic Vale is a game about healing the land in the same way that Splendor is a game about crafting diamond rings for the nobility. Both titles are essentially pure efficiency engines; build up a pool of resources that will allow you to buy more expensive resources faster than anyone else at the table and you win. There are no extraneous mechanics here to distract from the dopamine drip-drip-drip of steadily increasing card combos, and Mystic Vale has learned the key lesson of these kinds of games: don't overstay your welcome.

In addition, these criminals are also recruiting disillusioned employees through underground channels and blackmailing staff using compromising information gathered from open sources... According to Kaspersky Lab researchers, if an attack on a cellular service provider is planned, criminals will seek out employees who can provide fast track access to subscriber and company data or SIM card duplication/illegal reissuing. If the target is an Internet service provider, the attackers will try to identify the employees who can enable network mapping and man-in-the-middle attacks.

Racial Bias Has Been a Constant for Trump

An investigation by the New York Times — “drawing on decades-old files from the New York City Commission on Human Rights, internal Justice Department records, court documents and interviews with tenants, civil rights activists and prosecutors — uncovered a long history of racial bias at his family’s properties, in New York and beyond.”

“That history has taken on fresh relevance with Mr. Trump arguing that black voters should support him over Hillary Clinton, whom he has called a bigot.”

“While there is no evidence that Mr. Trump personally set the rental policies at his father’s properties, he was on hand while they were in place, working out of a cubicle in Trump Management’s Brooklyn offices as early as the summer of 1968.”

Dear America: Maine here. Please forgive us – we made a terrible mistake. We managed to elect and re-elect a governor who is unfit for high office.

He has a gruff exterior and blunt way of talking that some of us find refreshing, but he has shown again and again that he governs by grudge, and uses his power to beat up on people who cannot fight back.

Hacker who stole 2.9 million credit card numbers is Russian lawmaker’s son
2016-08-27 12:10:20 (2 hours ago) 

(credit: Wikipedia)

On Thursday, a federal jury in Seattle found Roman Seleznev guilty of stealing millions of credit card numbers and selling them online to other fraudsters. Seleznev, 32, is the son of Russian Parliament member Valery Seleznev.

Seleznev, who occasionally went by the moniker “Track2” online (a reference to one of the information strips on the back of a magnetic stripe card"), had been hacking into restaurant and retail Point of Sale (PoS) systems since at least October 2009 and continued until October 2013.

According to a 2014 indictment (PDF) from the Department of Justice, Seleznev and potentially others who are unknown to the investigators “developed and used automated techniques, such as port scanning, to identify computers and computer systems that were connected to the Internet [and] were dedicated to or involved with credit processing by retail businesses.”
