    Tina Forte, the QAnon-promoting Republican challenger for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s House seat, claimed Thursday that not only are her opponent’s voters endorsing her, but so is “the Latino community.” In a Newsmax interview that also featured Steven Elliott, the GOP candidate who will face Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) in November, Forte said her strategy to beat the overwhelming favorite Ocasio-Cortez involves going door to door. “I’ve walked the district. I knock on doors. I speak to the people. They don’t want her anymore,” said Forte. “I have her voters endorsing me. The Democrats are endorsing me. Ruben Diaz endorsed me,” she said, apparently referring to a 79-year-old out-of-office Bronx politician who has publicly opposed abortion rights and same-sex marriage. “The Latino community—they are endorsing me over AOC because of her radical left agenda,” claimed Forte, whose campaign website makes no mention of any endorsements. In 2020, Ocasio-Cortez won re-election in New York’s 14th Congressional District, which is nearly half Hispanic, with over 71 percent of the vote. That year, she was endorsed by Mijente, a grassroots organization for “Latinx and...

    San Jose has a long history of bad behavior during city elections. Pointing out an opponent’s shortcomings is fair game. But too often candidates and their supporters cross the line and engage in unethical tactics that say more about them than their opponents. Such is the case in the mayoral race involving Matt Mahan and Cindy Chavez. Neither candidate has clean hands. Opponents of Mahan have created a website criticizing the San Jose councilman’s record. But the website blatantly mischaracterizes Mahan’s position on abortion rights and suggests he is a closet Republican, neither of which is true. The website is the creation of the labor group United Food and Commercial Workers Independent Expenditure PAC. While Chavez has no control over the website, she has yet to denounce it or ask that the falsehoods be removed. That raises the question of whether she would condone such tactics if elected mayor. Meanwhile, Mahan supporters have created an anti-Chavez website that uses her name as the URL, a sleazy and possibly illegal campaign tactic. The website was created by Silicon Valley Biz PAC, a...

    (CNN)Arizona Republican Senate nominee Blake Masters removed language from his website following his primary win that included the false claim that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump, along with a section arguing the country would be better off if Trump was still the president. A review of Masters' website by CNN's KFile showed he also removed controversial language saying Democrats were trying to "import" a new electorate -- language that has drawn fire for mirroring far-right conspiracies that Democrats are trying to weaken the power of native-born Americans of European descent through mass immigration of non-White immigrants. Both stances were on Masters' website on August 1, the day before he won the Republican primary to take on Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in the closely watched Senate race. The sections were gone by August 26, according to screenshots from the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. Masters's new campaign posturing comes as a flurry of Republican candidates nationwide attempt to distance themselves from unpopular or divisive policy positions, particularly about abortion and the legitimacy of the 2020 election, ahead...

    Melting sea ice and permafrost, extending the growing season for invasive species, plants and bacteria: climate change will have dire consequences for the Far North. Many Quebec researchers are taking advantage of the beautiful season to take measurements. They can tell what the future holds for the Arctic. Published at 12:00 am. Mathieu Perrault Pres Methane or CO2 Arctic permafrost is one of the hotspots of global warming. This permafrost soil contains a lot of organic matter that dissolves, decomposes and releases methane, a particularly potent greenhouse gas. But this phenomenon is balanced by a shift in microbial populations in favor of methane-eating organisms. Photo from the Scotty Creek Research Station site Oliver Sonnentag, at a soil gas emission capture station “We’re tracking gas emissions from soils in a 2,000 km network from Saskatchewan to the Arctic,” explains McGill University’s Oliver Sonnentag, who has been involved in Yellowknife. “You see more methane in the south, but in the north it’s much less because of bacterial changes. Methane-feeding microbes release CO2A phenomenon...
    A cybersecurity expert featured in a Netflix documentary that exposes the effort to bring down the first revenge porn websites says he was instrumental in securing its downfall after he discovered what he believes is evidence of pedophilia and suicide on the website. Netflix's The Most Hated Man chronicles the fight to bring down IsAnyoneUp.com and its founder Hunter Moore. The site allowed people to post nude photos of anyone and link them to their social media accounts. Often, the photographs were hacked or posted by bitter exes, earning the nefarious site its reputation as the world's first ever revenge porn website. The three-part documentary focuses on Charlotte Laws whose daughter Kayla's nude pictures appeared on the site. But cybersecurity expert James McGibney, who also appears in the show said it was his work behind the scenes that actually brought the revenge porn site to an end. McGibney, a former Marine who was in charge of cybersecurity for 128 US embassies while in the armed forces, said he used his knowledge of computer systems to determine that many of the...
    In this article EXPE BKNG Many travelers try to save money by searching the internet for cheaper hotel rates. But a new study suggests it may not be worth the time — at least in some places. The travel insurance comparison site InsureMyTrip compared rates for 950 hotels in 19 global cities on three popular booking websites as well as each hotel's site. According to the results published last week, Hotels.com had the best overall rates — but just barely. Hotels.com had the best rates in 620 instances, which was slightly higher than Expedia, which had the cheapest rates in 579 instances. Booking directly with a hotel was more expensive, but by only about $6 more on average, according to the study. "There have been conflicting views on hotel rates, and people ... believe that booking through online travel platforms ensured a better rate than the hotel website," said Shalabh Arora, director of marketing at India's Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru. "However, it's not so at Four Seasons where rate parity is taken very seriously." He said the hotels'...

    by Reagan Reese   The country’s largest teachers’ union suggested a book about kneeling for the national anthem as part of its August 2022 summer reading list, according to its website. The National Education Association (NEA) listed the book “Why We Fly” by Kimberly Jones and Gilly Segal, which features marijuana use and tells of two girls on the cheerleading squad who take a knee for the national anthem after being inspired by a football star protesting in the media, according to the website. Discussion questions and related resources on athlete activism are also provided by the NEA to pair with the reading.

    A gun-loving California grocer allegedly bombarded the father of a school shooting victim with hundreds of emails, calling his late teen a “slut,” a “cunt,” and “human waste,” accusing her dad of molesting her, and signing off his most recent missive: “God Bless President Trump. Fuck joe biden.” Fresno resident James Catalano, 61, is charged with one count of cyberstalking, following a months-long harassment campaign that targeted prominent gun safety advocate Fred Guttenberg, according to a federal complaint first obtained by The Daily Beast. Guttenberg’s daughter Jaime, 14, was one of 17 people gunned down in 2018 by a fellow student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The shooter, Nikolas Cruz, pleaded guilty in October to 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder. He is now in the penalty phase of his trial, and a jury continues to deliberate as to whether or not he will receive the death penalty. Last December, Guttenberg—who is identified only as “F.G.” in the complaint—“began receiving a slew of harassing messages submitted to him through the contact page...

    Share this: In early June 2022, Saudi Arabia announced a hajj “lottery” for Western pilgrims that made it mandatory for people from Europe, the Americas and Australia to apply for visas through a random draw through the Saudi government-backed website. This new website also offered customized and VIP packages while attempting to replace the services that tour agencies had offered for decades. This year, an estimated 1 million people will perform the hajj, which is considered one of the five pillars in Islam. Under the lottery, only 50,000 permits were allowed from these 50 countries, compared with 25,000 for U.K. Muslims alone in previous years. The resulting chaos left both pilgrims and travel agencies frustrated. Many Muslims who had already made their plans found they could not rebook under the new plan because of malfunctioning websites, among other issues. Several among those who were able to arrive in Saudi Arabia found that the hotel rooms they had paid for were no longer available or were double-booked.

    It was a phone call every parent dreads. Charlotte Laws heard her daughter’s voice tremble at the end of the line. And it took just four words to send her mind racing: ‘Mum, something horrible happened.’ Was Kayla in hospital? Had there been an accident? The truth was far more sinister – as well as incomprehensible. Graphic, topless images of Kayla, then 24, had been stolen from her computer by an anonymous hacker and posted on a sleazy website for the world to see. The photos had been taken by Kayla in front of her bedroom mirror and were never intended to be shared publicly. They had been stored safely – or so Kayla had thought – on her laptop. But in what felt like a humiliating assault, as well as an invasion of her privacy, the images had been accessed remotely by a stranger and uploaded to a website with more than 350,000 followers. For Charlotte, this triggered a two-year battle to bring the man responsible to justice. She went into what she calls ‘full mum meltdown mode’ and...
