  • ISIS’s Harrowing Sexual Violence Towards Yezidi Women Revealed

    Tessa Berenson
    22 Dec 2014 | 4:01 pm
    Militants with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have enslaved and sexually brutalized scores of women, selling them into marriage or giving them as gifts to militant fighters, according to a new report. Since August, ISIS has captured hundreds, if not thousands of Yezidi women and girls and taken them into sexual slavery as part of an ethnic cleansing movement, the Amnesty report says. The Yezidis are a Kurdish ethno-religious minority group that have been historically oppressed by Sunni extremists. Once captive, many of the women are forced to convert to Islam and subjected to rape…
  • Federal Judge Rules Oklahoma Executions OK

    Oklahoma’s lethal injection protocols are constitutional and the state can proceed with the scheduled executions of four death row inmates early next year, a federal judge ruled on Monday. U.S. District Judge Stephen Friot denied a request for a preliminary injunction that was requested by a group of 21 Oklahoma death row inmates who argued the use of the sedative midazolam as the first drug in a three-drug combination the state administers risks subjecting them to unconstitutionally cruel and unusual punishment. The inmates sued after the April 29 execution of Clayton Lockett, who…

    We all know how to stop a zombie, right? Get it in the head. Fine in the movies or “The Walking Dead,” but it’s not so simple for zombie products or technologies. Case in point: Google Reader. The product was “killed” by Google in the middle of 2013, and it was no longer available to end users. So it was dead and buried, right? Wrong. It was a zombie. The back end of Google Reader kept on plugging away, checking feeds, dutifully reporting how many subscribers it was polling on behalf of.

    We recently sponsored the slightly-awkwardly-named-but-totally-worthwhile Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta, and so naturally the topic of email came up (surprise!), especially in relation to testing email forms with different email accounts. It can be a real pain to create yet another email address for your site, and so we all have only a few addresses to go around. Right? Wrong!
