first_imgFIRST THEY CAME FOR THE IPHONE By Ron PaulThe FBI tells us that its demand for a back door into the iPhone is all about fighting terrorism, and that it is essential to break in just this one time to find out more about the San Bernardino attack last December.But the truth is they had long sought a way to break Apple’s iPhone encryption and, like 9/11 and the PATRIOT Act, a mass murder provided just the pretext needed. After all, they say, if we are going to be protected from terrorism we have to give up a little of our privacy and liberty. Never mind that government spying on us has not prevented one terrorist attack.Apple has so far stood up to a federal government’s demand that it force its employees to write a computer program to break into its own product. No doubt Apple CEO Tim Cook understands the damage it would do to his company for the world to know that the US government has a key to supposedly secure iPhones.But the principles at stake are even higher. We have a fundamental right to privacy. We have a fundamental right to go about our daily life without the threat of government surveillance of our activities. We are not East Germany.Let’s not forget that this new, more secure iPhone was developed partly in response to Ed Snowden’s revelations that the federal government was illegally spying on us. The federal government was caught breaking the law, but instead of ending its illegal spying it’s demanding that private companies make it easier for it to continue.Last week, we also learned that Congress is planning to join the fight against Apple — and us. Members are rushing to set up yet another governmental commission to study how our privacy can be violated for false promises of security.Of course they won’t put it that way, but we can be sure that will be the result. Some in Congress are seeking to pass legislation regulating how companies can or cannot encrypt their products. This will suppress the development of new technology and will have a chilling effect on our right to be protected from an intrusive government. Any legislation Congress writes limiting encryption will likely be unconstitutional, but unfortunately Congress seldom heeds the Constitution anyway.When FBI Director James Comey demanded a back door into the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, he promised that it was only for this one, extraordinary situation. “The San Bernardino litigation isn’t about trying to set a precedent or send any kind of message,” he said in a statement last week.Testifying before Congress just days later, however, he quickly changed course, telling the Members of the House Intelligence Committee that the court order and Apple’s appeals, “will be instructive for other courts.” Does anyone really believe this will not be considered a precedent-setting case? Does anyone really believe the government will not use this technology again and again, with lower and lower thresholds?According to press reports, Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. has 175 iPhones with passcodes that the City of New York wants to access. We can be sure that is only the beginning.We should support Apple’s refusal to bow to the FBI’s dangerous demands, and we should join forces to defend of our precious liberties without compromise. If the people lead, the leaders will follow.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

first_img Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day Kike’ Hernandez completed the night’s power display with a two-run home run later in the sixth inning and Taylor finished a simple single shy of the cycle, going 3 for 4 with a double, a triple and a home run.The bombs-away offense provided cover for Kershaw to continue working his way back from the lower back strain that landed him on the DL at the start of June.“Games like this, you just try to get guys back in the dugout as fast as possible, the way they’re swinging the bats,” Kershaw said.In his third start back, Kershaw went six innings – his longest outing since May 1, before back-to-back trips to the DL with biceps tendinitis and a lower back strain.Kershaw is not sharp yet. But he only allowed single runs in the second and fourth – doubles by Elias Diaz followed by an RBI single by David Freese each time. The rest of the Pirates went hitless against Kershaw, who struck out only two (Nova both times).“I made some mistakes,” he said. “There’s probably some things to work on if I’m getting to two strikes and they’re putting the ball in play like that.” It is all very shocking – even to Muncy.“Absolutely,” he said. “I never thought I could hit this many home runs in such a short time. I’m just showing up every day and trying to do something to help the team.“I keep saying it’s just changes in my swing that put me in a better position to take advantage of the power I do have. … Honestly, it’s just a combination of small things that have all come together.”That is a coy way of saying “launch angle” and the new hot phrase in evaluator-speak – “impacting the baseball.”The Dodgers have done that with resounding success in the past two games against the Pirates, scoring 25 runs on 32 hits. The home runs have come at a June-like pace, 10 in the two games. They had nine extra-base hits in consecutive games for the first time since May 17-18, 1929.None of Tuesday’s offense came from Matt Kemp. He went hitless in four at-bats, striking out three times, to end his streak of consecutive hits at eight plate appearances.Joc Pederson and Muncy hit back-to-back home runs Monday night and did it again Tuesday – in the first five pitches of the game from Pirates starter Ivan Nova.Muncy took Nova deep again leading off the third inning. Yasmani Grandal just missed repeating that an inning later, settling for a triple off the top of the center-field wall instead. So Chris Taylor followed with a two-run home run.Grandal cleared the fence leading off the sixth inning, the fifth home run off Nova. No pitcher in the Pirates’ 137-year history had ever given up five home runs in a game before.Related Articles Fans in Boston and Anaheim would rise to that challenge. But Muncy is undoubtedly the most unexpected entrant in that discussion.Discarded as a minor-league free agent last April after rattling around the Oakland A’s farm system for parts of six seasons, Muncy was a non-roster invitee to the Dodgers’ big-league camp this spring but got only 14 at-bats in Cactus League games before being sent to Triple-A Oklahoma City to start the season.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.Now he is the first Dodger to 20 home runs (despite spending the first three weeks of the season in Triple-A). Only two players in the National League have more home runs than Muncy – Colorado’s Nolan Arenado and Washington’s Bryce Harper. Only two players in the majors have a higher OPS than Muncy’s 1.069 (minimum 150 plate appearances) – Boston’s Mookie Betts and the Angels’ Mike Trout. Only Betts has a higher slugging percentage than Muncy’s .649 (again, 150 plate appearances minimum).“He’s hitting good pitching, left-handed pitching, taking walks when he needs to,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “That’s the thing – it’s not one of those things where the league can figure him out because he’s covering a lot of pitches and he’s not afraid to walk.“Like I said the other night, it’s not surprising anymore. He understands his swing. He’s a baseball player. He’s putting up All-Star numbers. That’s just the way it is. That’s just the truth.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury center_img Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ PreviousLOS ANGELES, CA – JULY 03: Clayton Kershaw #22 of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitches during the first inning of a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Dodger Stadium on July 3, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

I don’t think anyone can argue with that.”last_img read more

first_img6 March 2013 Liam Neeson, the star of recent box office hit Taken 2, has signed on to play a malevolent leopard in South African animated film Khumba. The multi-award winning actor has played a number of key roles in box office franchise hits, including the latest Batman and Star Wars trilogies. He is also the voice of Narnia’s Aslan and will be appearing in the upcoming animated film, Lego, from the directors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Khumba is the second animated feature to be produced by Cape Town-based Triggerfish Animation Studios, which has seen a successful global release of Adventures in Zambezia. According to the film’s pre-publicity, Khumba tells the story of a half-striped zebra who is blamed for the drought by his superstitious herd. He leaves his home in search of the magic waterhole where, legend has it, the first zebras got their stripes. Teaming up with an overprotective, sassy wildebeest and a self-obsessed ostrich, the plucky young zebra meets an array of wacky characters in an unforgettable adventure through the Great Karoo desert to earn his stripes. The original story was penned by Triggerfish writers Raffaella Delle Donne and Anthony Silverston in consultation with Jonathan Roberts, co-writer of The Lion King. Silverston, who is also the director, is proud to have someone of Liam Neeson’s calibre in the role of the villain. “He brought a real menacing gravitas to this key character with his powerful, distinctive voice,” Silverston said in a statement last week. “The fact that he took part in our movie is a testament to the quality of animation produced in South Africa, and I am immensely proud of what our team has achieved.” The film is represented by LA-based sales agent CMG and will be theatrically distributed by Millennium Entertainment in the US later this year. The rest of the cast to date includes rising stars Jake T Austin (Rio, New Years Eve), AnnaSophia Robb (The Carrie Diaries, Soul Surfer) and Joey Richter (A Very Potter Musical), as well as Emmy-award winner Loretta Devine (Grey’s Anatomy, Crash), Richard E Grant (The Iron Lady, Corpse Bride) and British comedy actress Catherine Tate (The Catherine Tate Show, Doctor Who).

One of the beliefs that I hold most dear is how proud I am to be an American — and how incredibly thankful I am for our troops. I know how fortunate I am to live in this country, and to do what I do for a living, and to raise my daughters in peace and prosperity. But I also hear from plenty of people who don’t have it nearly as good as I do. Plenty of people who are genuinely struggling in this country. Especially our veterans.“And every single veteran I’ve spoken to, they’ve all said pretty much the exact same thing: That this conversation we’ve started to have in the world of sports … whether it’s been Colin (Kaepernick) kneeling, or entire NFL teams finding their own ways to show unity, or me saying that I didn’t want to go to the White House — it’s the opposite of disrespectful to them.”Kerr applauded his superstar again.“I thought it was beautiful,” Kerr said. “He’s very thoughtful, he’s very compassionate, very smart and he’s humble.

For example, Shumpert had this to say about one of the NBA’s most notable  MCs-Metta World Peace, “Oh, he’s horrible. He is horrible.”Shumpert has a theory, “There’s a difference between guys who rap and ‘NBA rappers’.”In the video, Shumpert takes a moment to explain why “NBA rappers” are so bad and why he proclaims himself the best rapper in the league. read more

Despite recent struggles on the PGA Tour, Tiger Woods’ play on the par-5 holes at the 2012 Memorial Tournament has him in contention after one round. Woods carded a 2-under-par 70 during the first round of the 2012 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. Woods walked off the 18th green one stroke off the lead, though he has sense fallen into a tie for 11th place as American Scott Stallings jumped to the top of the leader board after posting a 6-under-par 66 first round score. The 2-under-par score comes after what some consider underachievement in the three tournaments leading up to the Memorial Tournament. After finishing tied for 40th (-5-strokes) at The Masters, missing the cut for the Wells Fargo Championship and tying for 40th (-1) at The Players Championship, Woods said he feels like he’s “perking up” after one round of play in Dublin. “Well, I think I was just consistent all day,” Woods said. “I didn’t do … anything great and I didn’t do anything poorly. I was just very consistent. And I think with the way the golf course being the way it’s set up, you just have to be that way.” In order to finish his round 2-under-par, Woods took advantage of nearly every opportunity he had on Muirfield’s four par-5 holes, birdying three times while also posting a par. After paring holes 1-4, Woods tracked into negative territory when he birdied the 527-yard fifth hole. Two holes later, he birdied the 563-yard seventh. Woods saved par on the 11th, but said he wasn’t satisfied with that result. “The one on 11 should have been a birdie, as well,” Woods said. “I hit two really nice shots in there.” Woods bounced back and went to 4-under-par for the round when he birdied the 15th hole. The lone blemish on Woods’ round was a double-bogey on 18. After Woods finished his round, he said his play on the par-5 holes was productive for a change. “Well, I haven’t played the par-5’s particularly well the last few tournaments, and today was a good example (of how well I’m playing),” Woods said. “I played (the par-5’s) great. I feel very pleased with the way I hit the golf ball all day, and it was nice to actually play the par-5’s under par for a change.” Second-round play at the Memorial Tournament begins Friday at 7:20 a.m. read more

It was one big party in Ohio Stadium last night, as No. 12 Ohio State beat down No. 21 Nebraska for a 63-38 victory. Here’s what we learned about the Buckeyes, who improved to 6-0 for the season. It was an exciting night for the program and Buckeye fans were treated to a historic night during OSU’s 100th Homecoming game. Quarterback Braxton Miller was once again spectacular. The sophomore ran for a career-high 186 yards, breaking his own school record for most rushing yards by a quarterback. “We have a quarterback that’s kind of ridiculous running the ball,” first-year coach Urban Meyer said. Ridiculous is a fair way of describing Miller. He has an innate ability to make opposing defenders look foolish, to turn a sure-loss into a long touchdown. He’s the perfect quarterback to lead an offense that was equally absurd Saturday night. On OSU’s first four possessions, the offense managed a meager seven yards. It looked bleak for the Buckeyes, who trailed 17-7 early in the second quarter. And then it happened. Miller did what he does best, veering through the Nebraska defense for a 72-yard run to move the ball down to the three-yard line for the Buckeyes.  Miller’s long run fired up the crowd and ignited the offensive barrage that would shortly ensue. In the team’s final ten possessions, the Buckeyes scored eight touchdowns en route to a 63-point performance. It was the first time OSU scored more than 60 points against a Big Ten opponent since Oct. 1, 1983, a 69-18 drubbing of Minnesota. Meyer-coached teams are famous for high-scoring affairs, but even the most optimistic Buckeye fans shouldn’t have expected OSU to look this good this early in his tenure. For one, Meyer is instilling a completely different offensive scheme, with inherited players that he didn’t recruit for his system. And the players he does have are young – OSU starts just three seniors on offense. It would be insane to think that the Buckeyes would be an offensive juggernaut in year one, there had to be hiccups. Well, the first quarter was a hiccup, and the team still managed 63 points against a defense that hadn’t allowed more than 36 points in a game this season. This offense still has plenty of room to improve, and that, is ridiculous. One B1G mess We’re halfway through the season, and OSU is the clear favorite to win the conference they are sanctioned from winning. The Buckeyes stand alone as the Big Ten’s only unbeaten team. The four preseason favorites – Nebraska, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin – all have two losses, and only Michigan is unbeaten in conference play. Then there’s the league’s Leaders division, currently led by Penn State and OSU, the conference’s two teams banned from post-season play. If the season ended today, the division’s third-place team, Wisconsin, would play in the conference championship game. It’s been a tough season thus far for the Big Ten, whose top teams were beat down in non-conference play. Entering this weekend, only three teams were ranked in the top 25. Two of them lost on Saturday. Excluding last season, the Buckeyes have been the class of the conference for the past decade. That appears to be the case again this year, but given the team’s sanctions, it doesn’t bode well for the Big Ten. Give an extra helmet sticker to… Carlos Hyde, who had a career night for the Buckeyes. The junior running back rushed for 140 yards and four touchdowns, both personal bests. Perhaps more importantly, Hyde carried the ball a career-high 28 times. It was the first time an OSU running back had more than 20 carries since Miller took over as starting quarterback last season. A hot topic of conversation this year has been whether Miller receives too many carriers, and in turn too many hits, in Meyer’s system. It’s a lot easier to limit you best player’s touches when others can step up and provide production. Hyde did that Saturday night, and that bodes well for the Buckeyes moving forward. read more
