The eCigs.net Newspaper Headline Game

Postby ecigsnet » Tue Nov 27, 2012 3:52 pm

The eCigs.net Newspaper Headline Game is similar to the song title game.

The first person adds a newspaper headline and link to a real newspaper article.

The next person has to add a newspaper link that contains a word in the previous headline.

However, there is one change to make it interesting.

The mutual word must contain more than 3 (three) letters. We don't want to have a bunch of entries using that are linked using only the word "the" or "are".

Also, add the first paragraph of the article, just in case somebody want to read it.

If that's clear, I'll start with a topic that is always on my mind:

This is a real article :shock:

From the Huffington Post:

Begun the Drone Wars Have

With drones from the beginning there has been a kind of technological determinism associated with the idea that since the United States possesses this relatively new technology it should use it. Facing the uncertainty of reelection, President Obama became so concerned about the lawlessness of his drone killings he sought hastily to codify the rules governing their use. What began in the Bush era as a means for targeting al Qaeda leaders hiding in remote areas has become a vast "amorphous" death machine targeting suspected "militants" in Yemen, Somalia, and Pakistan. Now we've learned that, in addition to "personality strikes" aimed at individuals deemed enemies of the United States, there are now what's called "signature strikes" where any congregation of suspicious looking military-age men is open game.

U.S. drone strikes kill children in Pakistan

Although we do not know the names of the Pakistani children killed or injured by American drone strikes, we know the name, Malala Yousafzai, the teenager who was shot by the Taliban for promoting girls’ education.

Time magazine columnist Joe Klein defended drone attacks as excusable protection of American children. Former Obama White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said children of terrorists are fair game for U.S. drones.

The anachronistic thinking of my violence is better than your violence is likely to energize the Taliban, not Pakistan’s only reported problem. They have an energy crisis, unemployment, ethnic violence and curtailed freedom of expression from decades of military rule, supported by several U.S. administrations, that help deter long-term political problem-solving.

Like the George W. Bush administration, the Obama administration does not generally release the body count on non-Americans.

The resentment in Pakistan over drone strikes cannot be ignored. Extreme right-wing voices are able to boost legitimate grievances of ordinary people. Drone strikes worsen life and are counterproductive for American interests if those interests include an end to the war on terrorism.

Children exposed to traffic pollution at higher risk of autism

Children with the highest exposure to traffic pollution are significantly more likely to develop autism, according to a study published Monday in a major psychiatric journal.

In 2010, lead researcher Heather Volk published findings that showed children born to mothers who lived within 309 metres of a freeway were twice as likely to develop autism . “In this study, we sought to improve on that work,” said Volk, an assistant professor of research at the University of Southern California’s department of preventative medicine and pediatrics.

Tracking Pollution from Outer Space

The thickest layers of global smog — caused by traffic, industry, and natural minerals, among other factors — are found over the world’s megacities.

But getting an accurate measurement of pollution is no easy task. On-the-ground monitoring stations do not always provide the most accurate picture — monitoring stations depend heavily on local positioning and some cities put stations in urban centers, while others build on the edge of a city. Now Prof. Pinhas Alpert of Tel Aviv University’s Department of Geophysics and Planetary Sciences and head of the Porter School of Environmental Studies, with graduate student Olga Shvainshteinand and Dr. Pavel Kishcha, is turning to three of NASA’s high-tech satellites for a comprehensive view of pollutants in the atmosphere. Using eight years’ worth of data collected by the satellites, the researchers tracked pollution trends for 189 megacities — metropolitan hotspots where the population exceeds 2 million. 58 of these megacities, including New York City, Tokyo, and Mumbai, have populations that exceed 5 million.

In Mail Theft Sting, Postal Service Uses Electronic Tracking Device

Ever wonder how the U.S. Postal Service investigates a potential rogue mail carrier—someone who's peeking into your card not to see what a relative said about your birthday but to grab any cash?

Here are the tools, as described in court documents in a Washington federal district court case: "Test letters," physical surveillance, undercover post office boxes and electronic tracking devices.
