Facebook gets unwelcome look at hackers' dark side

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook says it was hacked -Facebook is getting an unwelcome look at the shady side of the hacking culture that CEO Mark Zuckerberg celebrates. Intruders recently infiltrated the systems running the world's largest online social network but did not steal any sensitive information about Facebook's more than 1 billion users, according to a blog posting Friday by the company's security team.
The unsettling revelation is the latest breach to expose the digital cracks in a society and an economy that is storing an ever-growing volume of personal and business data online.
The news didn't seem to faze investors. Facebook Inc.'s stock dipped 10 cents to $28.22 in Friday's extended trading.
The main building at Facebook's Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters lists its address as 1 Hacker Way. From there, Facebook serves as the gatekeeper for billions of potentially embarrassing photos and messages that get posted each month.

To Save Newborn, Doctors 'Freeze' Baby

When Claire Ives was seven months pregnant with her third child, she used a handheld device to listen to her unborn son's heartbeat. As she turned the machine on, she thought something had malfunctioned. "I thought I wasn't listening right or something," Ives, a nurse in London, told ABCNews.com. "I didn't believe his [heart] rate could be that fast."
Ives' son had a heart rate of about 300 beats per minute, nearly double the normal 160.
After doctors were alerted to the baby's elevated heart rate, Ives delivered her son, Edward Ives, five weeks early via emergency cesarean at the University College London Hospital.
Edward Ives was born with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and was given a five percent chance of survival. SVT is caused by improper electrical impulses in the heart that leads to an irregular rapid heartbeat heart, which then can lead to heart failure or affect internal organs. When the heart beats too q…

13-year-old ‘not so little newborn ’ photo goes facebook

Newborn 13-year-old- boy who was adopted and wanted photos of himself as a child had his wish come true — after a photo of him posing as a “newborn” has gone viral. His adopted family created “new” newborn photos of Latrell Higgins, who was adopted, along with his sister, at 10 years old.

And while the photos might look a little cliche, that’s exactly what the family was going for, they told the Daily Mail. The goal was to have a little fun and mock the typical “newborn poses.”

In all seriousness, the Higgins family said on Facebook they hope the photo will help raise awareness for adoption of older children.

Girls Basketball Team Disciplined after post 'Nazi Salute' on Facebook

By Andrew Lu Teenagers do dumb things. Just look at what happened to a girls basketball team in Maine whose members decided to pose on Facebook while giving a Nazi salute.
We've all joked about things that are not politically correct. However, the difference with teens today are that they have ways to memorialize their dumb acts forever, and for everyone to see.
When word of the photo got back to the high school principal, he took immediate disciplinary action against the students, reports The Bangor Daily News. The discipline may have come down especially swift, given that this is the second time this school year that the Cumberland-North Yarmouth school district has dealt with anti-Semitic actions. The photo that caused this controversy is actually not that controversial. Two members of the Greely High School girls basketball are facing a third member while giving a Nazi salute. The third team member in the middle is flashing t…

China rent a boyfriend

China rent a boyfriend, China rent a boyfriend is a new fad that is sweeping the country. Since many girls will be going home to see their families for Chinese New Year celebrations, many are renting "boyfriends" just to get their nosy families off their backs. On Feb. 6, The Telegraph UK reported that 300 men are listed "for rent" on the shopping site TaoBao. The price is about $48 a day -- and a bit more if an "appropriate kiss" is required -- you know, to really convince the fam.

"It can be a particularly miserable experience for girls who don’t bring home a boyfriend, leading to endless questions about why they’re not dating and where their life’s going. In this sexist society, ladies over 27 who aren’t hitched are labelled 'leftover women,'" reports The Telegraph.....examiner.

The China "rent a boyfriend" idea could pay off well. At this point, it is unclear how many girls/women are shopping for pseudo-boyfrie…
