Neither of the two hacks, which use different methods, do more than let thieves unlock and enter the cars, which of course would enable them to steal the contents. They'd have to use other tricks to start the engine and steal the car.…

So far, it does not appear that the Russian hackers sought or gained access to any computer systems used by Mr. Trump, who is known to avoid email, officials said.
…is the go-to laugh line these days when depicting someone as impossibly behind the times, technologically inept. Except, maybe not.
Until the government, the political parties, and a whole lot of other big, important organizations (and some small ones, too) start getting their collective cyber security act together, avoiding email for critical messaging just might be the most techno-savvy move there is.
Blaming hackers (and Russians! OMG!) for the dismal state of our current political affairs is a classic case of blaming the messenger. Politicians: If you must cheat, at least have the decency to do it where no one can see.
Defining politics: If Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are "progressive," then the word has lost all meaning
This article originally appeared in In These Times. What's a progressive, anyway? The term has a long and unruly history, which I'll be getting to. But the common-sense meaning of "progressive" is someone who is pretty darn liberal. In fact, you might even say that it signifies politics that are distinctly to the left of liberal. That, at least, has been the contemporary connotation of the word for as long as I've been following politics. Increasingly these days, the term is being dumbed down… Read the full story

Maybe I should just turn it off.
As a sociologist, I find barbershops fascinating because they've also traditionally been places where men spend time with other men, forming close relationships with one another in the absence of women. Many patrons will even stop by daily to simply chat with their barbers, discuss the news or play chess.
Cases of the "King of Beers" hit the street and scattered cans in every direction. Many of the cans exploded and gallons of brew washed over multiple lanes of traffic and rained down onto the streets below an elevated stretch of the Gowanus Expressway.
Fox News Hillary Clinton's jobs record as a New York senator - which her campaign has made a centerpiece of her pitch to voters - is coming under fresh scrutiny...
In the Senate, for instance, Clinton struck up a relationship with Corning – an upstate glass and high-tech product manufacturer. The Post reports that while Clinton helped steer money to Corning through legislation and federal grants, Clinton's efforts did not reverse the economic decline of Steuben County, where Corning is based.
Meanwhile, employees of the company have donated to Clinton's campaign; the company paid $225,500 for her to speak in 2014; the chief executive co-hosted a 2015 fundraiser for her; and the company has given over $100,000 to the Foundation, the Post reported.…
