sexual assault charges against ex-imf chief dismissed

dominique strauss-kahn walks free from new york court
sexual assault charges against ex-imf chief dismissed: dominique strauss-kahn walks free from new york courtfrom guardian: Dominique Strauss-Kahn, one of France's leading politicians, has walked free from a New York courtroom after a judge ordered the dropping of sexual assault charges against him for allegedly attacking a hotel maid. The move could resurrect his seemingly dead political career in France, and almost brings an end to a dramatic legal tussle that has gripped both sides of the Atlantic. The judge, Michael Obus, told the packed court he would comply with a request from the prosecution to throw the case out. "The indictment is dismissed," he said.

order out of chaos as libya operation reaches endgame

remember: libyan rebels are al-CIAda murderers...
from intel hub: As the corporate media is ablaze with reports that the Libyan rebels are set to take Tripoli from Gaddafi, it is important to remember that these rebels are NOT freedom fighters, rather they are CIA run, Al Qaeda connected murderers. This so called liberation of Libya is the EXACT opposite of what the corporate media is actually reporting. NATO and the Libyan rebels have killed thousands of civilians while at the same time the corporate controlled media pretends we are fighting for human rights. The coverage that is currently taking place in Libya is nothing less than pure propaganda ordered up by the CIA and NATO as support for this illegal war hits news lows. As the corporate media continue to try to make the American believe that former CIA agents and 4 star generals are somehow not at all bias, the fact remains that this war is legal, has killed thousands, and has been in support of Al Qaeda.

san antonio radio station to 'debut' artificially intelligent robot dj

no reaction yet from dj-3000...
san antonio radio station to 'debut' artificially intelligent robot djfrom nbcsandiego: A San Antonio radio station is putting artificial intelligence behind the microphone. "Denise," a computer program that can give the weather, play music and even tell jokes, takes to the airwaves next week on station KROV. She needs help from a scriptwriter, but at a cost of $200 is a lot cheaper than hiring a fulltime human staff, says Dominique Garcia, the radio personality who bought and programmed Denise. "A lot of radio DJs are pretty upset with me because it does work," Garcia told MSNBC's John Roach. Denise can't fill airspace by herself and sounds a "tad robotic," Garcia acknowledges. But she also won't stick her foot in her mouth, say things that inspire boycotts or command a big salary. She won't even need restroom breaks. "The idea and concept was never meant to blatantly disrespect any of my colleagues by creating a situation in which would place their jobs in jeopardy," Gacia blogged on "My intention was solely to reinvent a possible new method of automation.”

whistleblower alleges sec illegally destroyed documents

whistleblower alleges sec illegally destroyed documentsfrom nytimes: An enforcement lawyer at the Securities and Exchange Commission says that the agency illegally destroyed files and documents related to thousands of early-stage investigations over the last 20 years, according to information released Wednesday by Congressional investigators. The destroyed files comprise records of at least 9,000 preliminary inquiries into matters involving notorious individuals like Bernard L. Madoff, as well as several major Wall Street firms that later were the subject of scrutiny after the 2008 financial crisis, including Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Citigroup and Bank of America. The S.E.C. is the very agency that is charged with making sure that Wall Street firms retain records of their own activities, and has brought numerous enforcement cases against firms for failing to do so.

from 'flash mob' to 'flash rob': 5 things to know about crime waves says flash mob attacks 'the new terrorism'
from 'flash mob' to 'flash rob': 5 things to know about crime wavesfrom ibtimes: A flash mob in Germantown, Maryland robbed a local 7-Eleven store in under one minute Saturday night. Surveillance footage of the incident shows a group of teenagers walking wordlessly into the convenience store. They are followed seconds later by a stream of people, presumably juveniles, many covering their faces with shirts and hoods. The group walks around the store, taking as much as possible, before leaving 40 seconds later.

Montgomery County Police believe the event was organized online, likely on Facebook. A total of 28 individuals were captured in the videotape, and investigators say they have identified about half of them. The video was posted online, and many members of the community came forward with tips.

Flash mobs aren't new, nor are they unique to Maryland. They are an increasingly frequent trend that often have severe results, and townships and police departments around the country are trying to figure out how to combat the problem.

obama: biggest terror threat on 9/11 is lone wolf

obama: biggest terror threat on 9/11 is lone wolffrom cbsnews: With the tenth anniversary of the September 11 approaching, memories of the attacks on that day are surfacing as well as concerns about an attack on that day next month. In an interview with CNN, President Obama said that he was more worried about a deranged individual perpetrating an attack on 9/11 in retribution for killing Osama Bin Laden than a large scale, coordinated Al Qaeda attack. "As President of the United States I worry about all of it, but the most likely scenario ends up being a lone wolf operations rather than a large well coordinated attack," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. He gave the example of the massacre by Anders Behring Breivik in Norway as an example of the lone wolf. "One person deranged or driven by hateful ideology can do a lot more damage... We are vigilant and constantly monitoring the potential risks of terrorist attacks... We are not letting our guard down." A joint FBI/Department of Homeland Security memo (PDF) echoes Mr. Obama's statements: "Small-arms operations could be employed through a range of tactics from a lone offender--as illustrated by the recent 22 July 2011 lone shooter attack that took place in Norway--to a coordinated small-unit attack involving several operatives. Recent lone offender attacks and plots in the United States and abroad illustrate the effectiveness of the small-arms tactic and the need for continued vigilance and awareness of this tactic. Attacks by lone offenders--which by definition lack co-conspirators, and therefore provide fewer opportunities for detection--may be more difficult for law enforcement and homeland security authorities to disrupt."

US aides 'believe' china 'probably' examined stealth copter in pakistan

video: sultry drama continues after seal team 6 assassinated*
from nytimes: In the days after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Pakistan’s intelligence service probably allowed Chinese military engineers to examine the wreckage of a stealth American helicopter that crashed during the operation, according to American officials and others familiar with the classified intelligence assessments... American officials cautioned that they did not yet have definitive proof that the Chinese were allowed to visit to Abbottabad... Several Pakistani officials reached on Sunday declined to comment. The American assessments were disclosed Sunday by The Financial Times. The newspaper cited Pakistani officials who denied the accusations.

'kids for cash' judge only gets 28yr jail sentencefrom raw replay: A former Pennsylvania judge who rendered guilty verdicts in exchange for over $1 million in kickbacks from a for-profit youth rehabilitation center will spend up to 28 years in prison, following his sentencing hearing last Thursday. Over the weekend, CNN sat down with the mother of one of his victims, a young man who was so distraught by his unjust incarceration that he committed suicide. “It’s justice in the sense that he is going to pay for what we’ve been dealing with for the last eight years,” Sandy Fonzo, the boy’s mother, told the network. “True justice, I don’t think there could ever be. He’ll never live the sentence that I live.” This video is from CNN, broadcast Sunday, August 14, 2011.

murder/mayhem: dougherty gang, fugitive siblings, captured in coloradofrom abcnews: The three bystanders who chased and helped capture a member of the fugitive Dougherty Gang after Wednesday's high-speed police chase ended in a crash had no idea who they were helping to apprehend, they said on "Good Morning America" today. "We heard the shots, we see all of the officers coming down the on-ramp with the guns drawn and the M-16s out, surrounding this car that's up on the guardrail, and we're like, 'Man, what's happening?' You don't hear that every day," said Dave Dallaguardia, one of the three highway workers who helped catch the runaway Dougherty. It's unclear which brother they captured. Lee Dougherty, who is a 29-year-old stripper, and heavily armed brother Ryan, 21, and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, had become the focus of a manhunt that stretched from Florida to Colorado in the past week.

dow closes down 633 points after final plunge

video: obamapocalypse aa+ speech on manic monday
The Dow Jones industrial average finished the day down 633 points Monday after a full-day sell-off accelerated in the final hour of trading as investors struggled to absorb Standard & Poor's decision to downgrade the United States' credit rating. Investors piled out of stocks and into a few "safe havens," such as gold and Treasury bonds. The appetite for Treasury bonds suggests that the Standard & Poor's downgrade has not shaken investors' faith in U.S. bonds. Market experts said the Monday sell-off was sparked by the S&P announcement but was motivated more by growing concerns about the weakness of the global economy.

violent protest shakes troubled london district after police shooting

'panic on the streets of london, burn down the disco': tottenham cars & bldgs ablaze as 26 cops hurt & 42 arrested*
violent protest shakes troubled london district after police shootingfrom voanews: Several British police officers were injured and a number of people arrested when rioting broke out late Saturday in a depressed district of London, Britain's capital. A protest over the fatal shooting of a 29-year-old man by police on Thursday that started peacefully suddenly turned violent. Several buildings, cars and a double-decker bus were set on fire before order was restored. The crowd numbering in the hundreds also broke shop windows and looted stores, pushing carts full of stolen goods down the streets of the Tottenham district of north London. Police are now patrolling the district with concern of more trouble later on Sunday. The rioting was the worst London has seen in years. Tottenham, home to a large number of ethnic minorities, has a history of racial tensions. It was the scene in 1985 of one of the most violent riots in Britain's history during which a police officer was hacked to death when Afro-Caribbean youths in a deprived housing estate of Tottenham went on a rampage.

united states loses aaa credit rating from s&p, markets go wild

debt crisis q&a: what you need to know about s&p cut*
united states loses aaa credit rating from s&p, markets go wildfrom reuters: The United States lost its top-notch AAA credit rating from Standard & Poor's on Friday in an unprecedented reversal of fortune for the world's largest economy. S&P cut the long-term U.S. credit rating by one notch to AA-plus on concerns about the government's budget deficits and rising debt burden. The move is likely to raise borrowing costs eventually for the American government, companies and consumers. "The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government's medium-term debt dynamics," S&P said in a statement. The decision follows a fierce political battle in Congress over cutting spending and raising taxes to reduce the government's debt burden and allow its statutory borrowing limit to be raised... The S&P 500 stock index fell 10.8 percent in the past 10 trading days on concerns that the U.S. economy may head into another recession and because the European debt crisis has been growing worse as it spreads to Italy.
