Mitt Romney vs. Your Income….a calculator by Slate magazine

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

This afternoon Slate magazine posted an interesting (and quite telling) calculator that allows you to enter your annual income for 2010 and see how long it took Mitt Romney to earn that amount in 2010, and vice versa (how long it would take you to earn his amount of income).

Here it is:

Secret GPS tracking by police? Not without a warrant says the U.S. Supreme Court

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

The Supreme Court on Monday unanimously restricted the police’s ability to use a GPS device to track criminal suspects in a first test of how privacy rights will be protected in the digital age.

The court rejected the government’s view that long-term surveillance of a suspect by GPS tracking is no different than traditional, low-tech forms of monitoring. But its decision was nuanced and incremental, leaving open the larger questions of how government may use the information generated by modern technology for surveillance purposes.
