Hackers break into google via anal probe
Google are victims of a formal probe into its multiple businesses as the U.S. considers whether or not the tech heavyweights are 'abusing' their Internet dominance. The FTC probe will be investigating multiple issues regarding Google's core search-advertising business including whether its search engine unfairly steers users into 'choosing' Google sponsored products and/or services. Google assure that they are sticking to their age old policy of USER FIRST but critics are starting to be live a more traditional business model is slowly being put in place.
LulzSec's string of embarrassing hacks continue as the groups release another load of internal documents numbering up to the hundreds belonging to various Arizona law enforcement agencies. A blog post by Lulsec stated that the attack was due to recent state law giving police broad power to detain anybody they "deem" to be in the US illegally.

"We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona"

Prisoner freed, Obama and Big brother states.
Chinese artist Ai Weiwei most famous for his 'sunflower seed' project has finally been released from jail after 81 days. Ai Weiwei is now a much thinner and quieter man from the one that was brought into custody initially for supposed 'tax evasion' although this has been largely disputed and after pressure from multiple European leaders he has been released on bail.
President of the United States Barack Obama has finally broken the silence and spoken out on Weiner-Gate. Obama said he hopes that the recent resignation of Weiner will now allow the man to focus on his family life.
The collective police database that has been in the works since 2002 following the Bichard inquiry into the failings by police into the Soham murders in 2002. Questions have arose however as to the method at which police are obtaining 'intelligence' for the database as it is believed that out of the millions already set to be transferred onto the new system a significant proportion is believed to be compromised by innocent people including victims themselves to the wrongly accused. After the large number of recent security breaches in major organizations people are beginning to fear the worst that their data will soon be compromised.

Hackers take control of the UK
Once again Lulz Security are in the headlines as it is believed they have managed to get their hands on this years census data for the UK. Such a loss is hugely embarrassing for the government and has gotten many people thinking how tight are our nation security measures? The message which is being believed to have been sent from 'Lulzsec' reads
Greetings Internets,
We have blissfully obtained records of every single citizen who gave their records to the security-illiterate UK government for the 2011 census   We're keeping them under lock and key though... so don't worry about your privacy (...until we finish re-formatting them for release)
It goes on to mention that once the database has been reformatted it will be open to the public on piratebay.

A new vaccine using DNA from health cells was able to cure 80% of mice in animal trials involving prostate cancer. Cancer Research UK have said that this is a major development although human trials must begin as soon as possible. Cancer vaccines are not unlike traditional vaccines but instead of making the immune system attack infections they aim to target specifically tumour cells. Should these new methods prove to be successful this new and interesting study could really broaden the field of immunotherapy research.

In the latest details of the governments controversial NHS reforms it has been announced that supposed 'failing' hospitals will no longer be secretly "bailed out" using the tax payers money. The Department of Health have said that poorer quality organizations will no  longer be proper up with subsides and highlighted the importance of competition and choice as key proponents to improving public services.

Hacker watch... again

Sorry about the last two or so days not posting, been busy. Back in business now though.

I hope the dudes alright, but i found this funny:
Another set of hackers have broken into Sega's Pass Database. Spokeswomen Yugo Nagasawa confirmed the news that over 1.29 million users personal data has been stolen. The reaction to the attacks has been swift however, Sega representatives explained that all user passwords had been reset immediately and customers have been made aware that all user details should be changed immediately. The hacking 'group' Lulz Security who were most recently famed for being responsible for the attacks against Nintendo have denied involvement.
The Greek prime minister has announced that Greece will require ANOTHER 100 billion euro bailout to avoid debt default. The Socialist leader George Papandreou warns that without further aid from the EU and IMF Athens cash reserves are expected to run out soon inviting a financial crisis that European official have warned would rapidly contaminate the entire international financial system. The previous bailout of 110 billion euros agreed in last may was the single biggest bailout in western history and new measures are expected to replicate that.

This is so awesome...

Susan Boyles cleavage takles mutant DNA

Sorry ive been slacking on the blogs lately but i seems i have recently HIT 50 FOLLOWERS!!!! well at the time of this post 57... To celebrate heres a picture of 50 people in the shape of the number 50 (i didnt count but just take my word for it)
A man who walked into Susan Boyles home after she left the door open has been fined £70 for stealing £9. Scott Millar, 17, was initially told to make a donation to the singers favourite Charity following a court case however he decided the money would be better put to use 'doing up' his flat. Millar has since pleaded guilty to entering the house uninvited although because it couldn't be proved that he 'broke in' then he will not face charge? weird. And apparently in Scotland chiefs of police or whatever there called are still called Sheriff, so that's cool...
One of the UK's top fetishes according to Heat is Nurses and now even that seems to be taken away... :(
A new six page dress code has been introduced into UK hospitals that demands from now on for all employees in (or out) of uniform to be clothed 'professionally and consistent'.  Sad times.
Scientists have hit on a genetic discovery that should open up fresh avenues for the treatment of devastating diseases including cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and particular forms of cancer. This new technique aims to correct glitches in the genetic order that lead to the cause and effects of such diseases. Specifics have not yet been released although the concept is said to be so powerful it could revolutionise modern medicine.

Student fees and frisking

Hello, todays June 15th and if you live in Australia, Asia, Africa, S America and specific places in southern Europe you can look out your window and see a total lunar eclipse. If you cant like me you can watch live as events unfold at

The government have modified the police's ability to use stop and search techniques to 'frisk' people without grounds for suspicion after it has been ruled to be illegal and in breach of human rights. New procedure requires authorization from the home secretary which would only occur if there was sufficient evidence that an act of terrorism could occur.

Arbitrary stop-and-search powers allow the state to confront an individual in the street, without cause, and demand their papers - it's wrong”
Daniel HamiltonDirector of the Big Brother Watch plans for Welsh universities to follow suite and charge students tuition fees of up to £9,000 a year have been rejected. Unlike those in England, Welsh students will not have to pay the fees for the same quality education as others in recent years before them had. It has been determined that the 'Higher Education Funding Council for Wales' will solely be responsible for approving any plans for increase over the current £4,000 a year cap by an individual university basis.

We made a commitment in our manifesto... to ensure that Welsh students would not pay higher fees wherever they study, and that is a commitment for the life of this assembly”
