As more and more of your favorite stars hop on the Snapchat wagon, figuring out how to add them to your friends list can become a difficult task. Celebrities use the rising social media platform to share sexy selfies , funny videos, or behind-the-scenes footage, but unlike Instagram and Twitter, there are no verified accounts or check marks next to their name, so trying to hunt them down can seem like an endless mission.

31Oct

As President Obama approaches his final year in power, a political impasse over the Guantánamo prison appears increasingly likely to force him to choose between two politically unsavory options: Invoke executive power to relocate the remaining detainees in defiance of a statute, or allow history to say he never fulfilled his promise to shutter the prison.

Medicare To Cover End Of Life Planning

31Oct

WASHINGTON (AP) — Medicare said Friday it will pay doctors to help patients plan what kind of care they want at the end of life, an idea more broadly accepted than six years ago when it touched off a political uproar about “death panels.” The policy change was urged by numerous physician and health groups. Some doctors provide this “advance care planning” to their patients without getting paid for the counseling time, and some private insurers already reimburse for it. But the Obama administration’s policy change could make the talks more common among about 55 million Medicare beneficiaries

This week, a new 21st century debate surfaced: How do we protect the data cloud we have all come to depend on when it is physically composed of cables running across the bottom of the ocean? The issue came to light after it was reported that Russian spy ships were operating near key cable routes. Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stavridis writes that, “Well over 95 percent of everything moving on the global Internet passes through 200 or so highly active cables, some as deep underwater as Mount Everest is tall.” Lixian Hantover offers a profile of what the undersea cloud looks like and what its vulnerabilities are.

Get Ready for More GOP Media Bashing

31Oct

As the recent presidential debate showed, the trusty old media-bashing tactic of Republican candidates was alive and well, and this season it is pushing into over-drive with a zest that would make Spiro Agnew cheer. While the candidates’ harsh words for the reporters covering them brought the usual applause from the party’s base, it’s utter nonsense. At the CNBC debate last week, the level of mendacity and hypocrisy that some of the candidates directed toward the media was stunning.

Dumb and Dumber Debating–Part II

31Oct

Thank goodness the Republican House approved a budget compromise that lifted the debt ceiling for 2 years, and ignored the Republican Presidential debates. It was a compromise because Democrats were needed to get approval in both houses of Congress. In fact, retiring House Speaker John Boehner was only able to pass it because all 187 Democrats voted for it, and only 79 House Republicans–and the Senate approved it late last night

It boggles the mind that the White House, in announcing the deployment of more Special Operations to Syria, still insists on saying that they won’t have a “combat mission.” They will tell you that sending Special Operations to advise, train, and assist means troops will behind the front lines, and thus, won’t be heading over with orders to join battles. I was an adviser in Iraq, in 2011, and I can tell you, they’re likely to face combat, whether that’s their mission, or not

A motorcyclist is lucky to be alive after he tried to pop a wheelie at high speeds, but ended up eating pavement — and the whole thing was caught on camera.  The rider was traveling at more than 100 mph, according to Jukin Media, which provided the painful-to-watch clip:   While the daredevil was wearing a helmet, he was clad only in a T-shirt and shorts — but somehow made it through with only some road rash.  The motorcycle was less fortunate.

A high school football coach known for praying on the field after games has been placed on paid administrative leave after Satanists asked to hold their own invocation at Thursday night’s game.  Bremerton School District, located near Seattle, said late Thursday that coach Joe Kennedy had been placed on leave for his “refusal to comply with the District’s lawful and constitutionally required directives that he refrain from engaging in overt, public religious displays on the football field while on duty as a coach.” Kennedy had been asked not to pray on the field after games, but has continued to do so and has even threatened to sue the district .  He was placed on leave shortly after the local chapter of the Satanic Temple said it had been invited by at least one student to give an invocation on the field after the game.  “The school district needs to create religious opportunity for everyone or ban it completely,” class president Abe Bartlett, one of the students who contacted the Satanic Temple, told the Kitsap Sun. ” There can’t be a middle ground .” The district said that while no players complained about the prayer sessions, some may have felt coerced to join in.  “It is very likely that over the years, players have joined in these activities because to do otherwise would mean potentially alienating themselves from their team, and possibly their coaches,” the statement said. “The District has a fundamental obligation to protect the rights of all of its students.” The district didn’t mention the Satanists by name in its statement, but said it would not allow other groups to make use of the field during district functions such as the football game.  However, the Satanic Temple immediately released a statement of its own withdrawing its request to hold an invocation in light of the suspension .  “A big shout-out to the Bremerton School District for taking prompt and decisive action to stop coach Kennedy from continuing to violate the law with his public prayers while on duty,” Lilith Starr, head of the Seattle chapter of the Satanic Temple, wrote on Facebook. “By putting him on paid administrative leave and releasing a strongly-worded public statement, the district has sent an extremely clear signal that they will hold fast the line between church and state .” Starr said that while the temple will not be performing an invocation, members still plan to attend the game “in support of the students, teachers and community members who asked us to come represent their beliefs.”   (h/t Raw Story )   Also on HuffPost: — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms
