Barrett Brown faces eight and a half years in prison today for the crime of being a journalist. Officially, Brown is charged with three crimes: (1) transmitting a threat in interstate commerce, (2) obstructing the execution of a search warrant, and (3) being an accessory after the fact to an unauthorized access to a protected computer. Agent Smith took away Browns computers, which contained Browns research into contractors who spy or conduct information warfare on behalf of government and corporate clients.
Gilson, MDsignedTamir Rices autopsy report today, concluding that he succumbed to homicide via gunshot wound. Admittedly, it isnt easy for an officer to distinguish a real weapon from the toy Tamir held in a surveillance video that went viral two weeks ago, but Cleveland PD solved the problem permanently by opening fire within seconds of getting out of their squad car. Watch now: Police say they pulled up, ordered him to place his hands in the air, but instead, he reached for the gun in his waistband, which is when they shot him dead.
The NPPA Code of Ethics can help your images be seen my millions. Almost every week I get emails from people who want to know my workflow in Photoshop or other photo manipulation software.
They’re disappointed when I respond and tell them my images aren’t altered. Photo manipulation may be ok for the Instagram crowd and the rest of the look-at-me-I-am-a-pro crowd, but it won’t help get your pictures seen by millions.

Ever wonder exactly how the one-percent managed to control, rule and dominate the 99 percent?

Since Tuesday the Argentine stock market, the Merval, has been sinking. A lot of investors were betting that 2015 would come around, and Argentina and the holdouts led by Elliott Management founder Paul Singer would sit down and sing Kumbaya. Instead Argentina is coming up with more creative ways to raise cash, like a recent debt swap plan the government has announced to raise $3 billionlocally.
