Second Amendment case Peruta vs. California may be heading to Supreme Court

erwin chemerinsky Dean Erwin Chemerinsky: No right to have concealed weapons

If this does make it to the Supreme Court, I’m certainly hoping for an outcome which favors legal firearm owners.

From Fox News: The Second Amendment is only 27 words, but Americans have used millions of words arguing over what it means. It guarantees “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” But which people, what arms, and under what circumstances?

Two milestone cases involving the Second Amendment that reached the Supreme Court are District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), declaring an individual has a right to own a firearm, and McDonald v. City of Chicago (2010), affirming the Second Amendment applies to state law.

Now, if the Supreme Court decides to hear it, there may be a third major case in a decade: Peruta v. California.

At issue is the right to keep and bear arms outside the…

The Do’s & Don’t’s of Presenting

Campus To Career

The presentation is a procedure where you represent your product or project in a speech, lecture or demonstration in order to educate your audience. For some, the anxiety level is high when you hear about giving presentations in front of people while some find it an easy calling. In other words, some freak out and some don’t! Before heading for a presentation, it’s important to loosen your nerves. Take a deep breath and begin. Concentrate on a specific object in the room to help you release your stress.

As a presenter, you have to be fully immersed in the topic in order to captivate the audience. Audience satisfaction is the goal of the presentation’s success. There’s a saying (some call it the “global rule” that the first impression is the last impression. Keep your presentation interactive and communicate with proper eye contact.

As you get started, here are some do’s and don’t’s on presenting…

Germany’s highest court rules IP addresses may be saved in interest of cybersecurity

Peace and Freedom

Cybersecurity takes priority over a person’s data protection rights in some cases, the Federal Court has ruled. This specifically refers to the right to save IP addresses as defense against cyberattacks.

DW Shift Internet Telefonie (BR)

The Bundesgerichtshof Federal Court of Justice (BGH) made a ruling Tuesday in a case that dates back nearly a decade.

The BGH ruled that IP information of an internet user may be retained beyond the period the user visited a specific web site if retaining the IP information was necessary to defend and investigate cyberattacks. This is only permissible if the site is prone to cyberattacks. Further clarification is needed to determine which sites are considered to be at high risk of an attack.

The case was originally brought by Patrick Breyer, a politician from the Pirates party, who argued that an internet user’s right to privacy and ownership of their own data should prevent IP addresses from…

You’re a Nazi if you stand for free speech

Fellowship of the Minds

A man peacefully holding a sign that says “The right to openly discuss ideas must be defended,” is verbally assaulted by Leftists, some wearing black masks to conceal their faces, and called “Nazi scum” who should get “off our street”.

Among the attackers are Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the UK’s Labour Pary and a member of Parliament (2:02 mark in video below), and Gary McFarlane, leader of Black Lives Matter UK (3:12 mark).

Corbyn has called for the UK government to bar President Trump from visiting the UK because of his executive order banning visitors from certain majority-Muslim countries from entering the US.

Let me see if I have this right —

People who call themselves “Progressives” act like regressive street thugs, attacking and calling a man “Nazi scum” for holding a sign defending the right to free speech and the open discussion of ideas.

Yet another case of…

Scientist wins Miss USA, slammed for ‘conservative’ comments

Fellowship of the Minds

miss usa Kara: Intelligent, gorgeous, and leans conservative. No wonder the proggies despise her.

Of course she was slammed. Proggies have a funny way of displaying their tolerance.

Via NY Post: A 25-year-old scientist from the District of Columbia who works for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission was crowned Miss USA Sunday — and she did it after making some controversial comments about political issues during the competition.

Kara McCullough caused a firestorm on social media after she gave conservative answers to questions — saying she wasn’t a feminist and that she thought people need to have a job to have health care.

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” McCullough said, when asked if access to medical care was a right, as liberals such as Sen. Bernie Sanders say, or a privilege, as many conservatives say.

She then added: “As a government employee, I’m granted health care…

Cyprus: Keeping it in the family

ABP World Group - Parental Abduction Recovery & Kidnapping Recovery



By Charlie Charalambous

Two weeks ago, a little girl went missing after she was taken from her mother in broad daylight in front of a Nicosia nursery.

Apparently she is doing fine and with her Norwegian dad.

This is a relief because if the four-year-old was in any real danger, then I wouldn’t put money on our police saving her.

Marie appears to be at the centre of a bitter custody battle between her Norwegian father and Greek Cypriot mother – and like many cases of this kind, each parent has a story to tell.

Nevertheless, it is always the children that suffer, no matter who is right or wrong when it comes to deciding on custody.

Every lawyer will tell a different story to make the other side look bad, and when the going gets tough, the mum or dad can simply run off with the kid to…

WikiLeaks Dump Reveals CIA Malware That Can Sabotage User Software Published on May 16, 2017 at 01:00AM BleepingComputer: This time, the organization dumped user manuals for two hacking tools named AfterMidnight and Assassin.

Both are malware frameworks, but of the two, the most interesting is AfterMidnight — a backdoor trojan for stealing data from infected PCs.

According to its leaked manual, AfterMidnight contains a module to “subvert” user software by killing processes and delaying the execution of user software.

Examples in this manual show CIA operatives how to kill browsers every 30 seconds to keep targets focused on their work, how to delay the execution of…
