A secret surveillance program known as TrapWire was revealed by WikiLeaks last week, but continuing distributed denial of service attacks have in turn eliminated access to the site for many people. The loose-knit hacktivism collective Anonymous has pounced on the TrapWire story, though, and has launched an operation to expose the truth behind the program and the companies it is connected to. RT Web Producer Andrew Blake broke the story last week and is back to bring up the facts about an effort to blanket America in a state-of-the-art surveillance system.

I recently received a scholarship from Ericsson to attend the United Nations Social Good Summit in New York City. I first heard of this company because they were the company that helped Nobel Peace Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus create a nationwide cellphone network in Bangladesh. It was actually Ericsson’s backend systems that have helped me tweet and upload many of my videos while in Bangladesh. For most people who have heard of Ericsson, we think of their Sony Ericsson cellphones. This, as I found out, is not their main business. Which was great because at no point during my time with them did they ever want me to pitch their cellphones. Their main customer isn’t you or I – it’s cellphone and telecommunication companies. They believe access to communication is a human right and being connected will help the poor. That’s the reason I decided to interview them and make this video. ============================ Videos Linked in the End Screen: ============================ My “How Come” Question to Ericsson: www.youtube.com My Pitch to the United Nations: www.youtube.com ================================= Special Thanks Goes to the Following….. ================================= Uncultured Project Donors ( uncultured.com ) Elgato Systems ( www.elgato.com ) Ericsson ( http ) Red Giant Software ( www.redgiantsoftware.com ) CrumplePop Software ( http ) CoreMelt Software ( www.coremelt.com ) Singular Software ( http ) Stephen Purcell ( twitter.com ) The uploaded video is was …

Answer by Eric The Plumber
Many companies are starting to bring those jobs back to the US. However, I the savings is so huge for a US corporation, that they almost have to outsource. So, for utilities and other companies that you have to use, do not look for any drop in outsourcing.

The US has been criticized for supporting dictatorships with economic assistance and military hardware. Particular dictatorships have included Musharraf of Pakistan, the Shah of Iran, Museveni of Uganda, the Saudi Royal family, warlords in Somalia, and Augusto Pinochet in Chile. The US has been criticized by Noam Chomsky for opposing nationalist movements in foreign countries, including social reform. The United States was criticized for manipulating the internal affairs of foreign nations, including Guatemala, Chile, Cuba, Colombia, various countries in Africa including Uganda. See also Covert United States foreign regime change actions. The US has been accused of condoning actions by Israel against Palestinians. Some critics argue that America’s policy of advocating democracy may be ineffective and even counterproductive. Zbigniew Brzezinski declared that “[t]he coming to power of Hamas is a very good example of excessive pressure for democratization” and argued that George W. Bush’s attempts to use democracy as an instrument against terrorism were risky and dangerous. Analyst Jessica Tuchman Mathews of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace agreed that imposing democracy “from scratch” was unwise, and didn’t work. Realist critics such as George F. Kennan argued US responsibility is only to protect its own citizens and that Washington should deal with other governments on that basis alone; they criticize president Woodrow Wilson’s emphasis on democratization and …

Groucho Marx made 26 movies, 13 of them with his brothers Chico and Harpo. Marx developed a routine as a wise-cracking hustler with a distinctive chicken-walking lope, an exaggerated greasepaint mustache and eyebrows, and an ever-present cigar, improvising insults to stuffy dowagers (often played by Margaret Dumont) and anyone else who stood in his way. As the Marx Brothers, he and his brothers starred in a series of popular stage shows and movies. Their first movie was a silent film made in 1921 that was never released, and is believed to have been destroyed at the time. A decade later, the team made some of their Broadway hits into movies, including The Cocoanuts and Animal Crackers. Other successful films were Monkey Business, Horse Feathers, Duck Soup, and A Night at the Opera. One quip from Marx concerned his response to Sam Wood, the director of the classic film A Night at the Opera. Furious with the Marx Brothers’ ad-libs and antics on the set, Wood yelled in disgust: “You can’t make an actor out of clay.” Groucho responded, “Nor a director out of Wood.” Marx worked as a radio comedian and show host. One of his earliest stints was in a short-lived series in 1932 Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel, co-starring Chico. Most of the scripts and discs were thought to have been destroyed, but all but one of the scripts were found in 1988 in the Library of Congress. In 1947, Marx was chosen to host a radio quiz program You Bet Your Life broadcast by ABC and …

In the Western world, social progressive values that began in the 1960s, such as increasing political awareness and political and economic liberty of women, continued to grow. The hippie culture, which started in the latter half of the 1960s, waned by the early 1970s and faded towards the middle part of the decade, which involved opposition to the Vietnam War, opposition to nuclear weapons, the advocacy of world peace, and hostility to the authority of government and big business. The environmentalist movement began to increase dramatically in this period. Novelist Tom Wolfe coined the term Me decade in his article “The “Me” Decade and the Third Great Awakening”, published by New York magazine in August 1976 referring to the 1970s. The term describes a general new attitude of Americans towards atomized individualism and away from communitarianism in clear contrast with the 1960s. Wolfe attributes disappearance of the “proletariat” with the appearance of the “lower middle class”, citing the economic boom of Post-War America as affording the average American a sort of self determination and individuation that ran alongside economic prosperity. Wolfe describes this abandoning of communal, left, and New Deal politics as “taking the money and running.” He traces the preoccupation with one’s self back to the aristocrat. The nature of the “chivalric tradition” and the philosophy behind “the finishing school” are inherently dedicated to the building and forming of personal …
A missing person is a person who has disappeared for usually unknown reasons. Missing persons’ photographs may be posted on bulletin boards, milk cartons, postcards, and websites, along with a phone number to be contacted if a sighting has been made. People disappear for many reasons. Some individuals choose to disappear alone; most of these soon return. Reasons for non-identification may include: To escape child abuse, such as child physical abuse, emotional abuse, by a parent(s) / guardian(s) / sibling(s) (especially). Leaving home to live somewhere else under a new identity. Becoming the victim of kidnapping. Abduction (of a minor) by a non-custodial parent or other relative. Seizure by government officials without due process of law. Suicide in a remote location or under an assumed name (to spare their families the suicide at home, or to allow their deaths to be eventually declared in absentia). Victim of murder (body disguised, destroyed, or hidden). Mental illness or other ailments such as Alzheimer’s Disease can cause someone to become lost, or they may not know how to identify themselves due to long term memory loss that causes them to forget where they live, the identity of family members or relatives or even their own names. Death by natural causes (disease) or accident far from home without identification. Disappearance in order to take advantage of better employment or living conditions elsewhere. Sold into slavery, serfdom, sexual servitude, or other unfree …

Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx (October 2, 1890 — August 19, 1977) was an American comedian and film and television star. He is known as a master of quick wit and widely considered one of the best comedians of the modern era. Groucho’s three marriages all ended in divorce. His first wife was chorus girl Ruth Johnson. He was 29 and she 19 at the time of their wedding. The couple had two children, Arthur Marx and Miriam Marx. His second wife was Kay Marvis (m. 1945–51), née Catherine Dittig, former wife of Leo Gorcey. Groucho was 54 and Kay 21 at the time of their marriage. They had a daughter, Melinda Marx. His third wife was actress Eden Hartford. She was 24 when she married the 63-year-old Groucho. During the early 1950s, Groucho described his perfect woman: “Someone who looks like Marilyn Monroe and talks like George S. Kaufman.” Often when the Marxes arrived at restaurants, there would be a long wait for a table. “Just tell the maître d’ who we are,” his wife would say. (In his pre-mustache days, he was rarely recognized in public.) Groucho would say, “OK, OK. Good evening, sir. My name is Jones. This is Mrs. Jones, and here are all the little Joneses.” Now his wife would be furious and insist that he tell the maître d’ the truth. “Oh, all right,” said Groucho. “My name is Smith. This is Mrs. Smith, and here are all the little Smiths.” Similar anecdotes are corroborated by Groucho’s friends, not one of whom went without being publicly embarrassed by Groucho on at least …

Professor Paul W. Drake argued that the US first attempted to export democracy in Latin America through intervention from 1912 to 1932. Drake argued that this was contradictory because international law defines intervention as “dictatorial interference in the affairs of another state for the purpose of altering the condition of things.” The study suggested that efforts to promote democracy failed because democracy needs to develop out of internal conditions, and can not be forcibly imposed. There was disagreement about what constituted democracy; Drake suggested American leaders sometimes defined democracy in a narrow sense of a nation having elections; Drake suggested a broader understanding was needed. Further, there was disagreement about what constituted a “rebellion”; Drake saw a pattern in which the US State Department disapproved of any type of rebellion, even so-called “revolutions”, and in some instances rebellions against dictatorships. Historian Walter LaFeber stated, “The world’s leading revolutionary nation (the US) in the eighteenth century became the leading protector of the status quo in the twentieth century.” Mesquita and Downs evaluated 35 US interventions from 1945 to 2004 and concluded that in only one case, Colombia, did a “full fledged, stable democracy” develop within ten years following the intervention. Samia Amin Pei argued that nation building in developed countries usually unravelled four to six years after American intervention ended. Pei …

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is an agreement signed by the governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, creating a trilateral trade bloc in North America. The agreement came into force on January 1, 1994. It superseded the Canada — United States Free Trade Agreement between the US and Canada. In terms of combined GDP of its members, as of 2010 the trade bloc is the largest in the world. NAFTA has two supplements: the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC) and the North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation (NAALC). Securing US congressional approval for NAFTA would have been impossible without addressing public concerns about NAFTA’s environmental impact. The Clinton administration negotiated a side agreement on the environment with Canada and Mexico, the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC), which led to the creation of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) in 1994. To alleviate concerns that NAFTA, the first regional trade agreement between a developing country and two developed countries, would have negative environmental impacts, the CEC was given a mandate to conduct ongoing ex post environmental assessment of NAFTA. In response to this mandate, the CEC created a framework for conducting environmental analysis of NAFTA, one of the first ex post frameworks for the environmental assessment of trade liberalization. The framework was designed to produce a focused and systematic …
