Computer Programmer Fired For Outsourcing His Job to China
The lead developer of a U.S. critical infrastructure company was caught redhanded outsourcing his assignments to a Chinese consulting firm for a fifth of his six-figure annual salary. An analysis of his work computer revealed that he spent much of his work day surfing websites like Facebook, Reddit and eBay, while receiving praise for work being done by the contractors overseas.
Mozilla, creators of the Firefox browser, and opponents of SOPA/PIPA, have now come out against CISPA.
CISPA, or Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, would create an information-sharing apparatus between private entities and the NSA. The worry is that in the name of national and corporate security, Internet users’ privacy would be sacrificed.
Late Tuesday, Mozilla’s Privacy and Public Policy sent a letter to Forbes’ Andy Greenberg, which reads:
While we wholeheartedly support a more secure Internet, CISPA has a broad and alarming reach that goes far beyond Internet security. The bill infringes on our privacy, includes vague definitions of cybersecurity, and grants immunities to companies and government that are too broad around information misuse. We hope the Senate takes the time to fully and openly consider these issues with stakeholder input before moving forward with this legislation.

Want to beat heart attacks? Have a larger butt.
A recent study found that if a woman has a “pear-shaped” physique, then she has less of a chance of suffering from metabolic and heart diseases. It’s not just a matter of buying a crate of Fritos and sitting on your ever-expanding ass for a week; rather, it’s about having a genetic predisposition to grow fat on your butt and thighs instead of your stomach and other places.
You can save time by just adding fatty food directly to your butt.
Oxford’s Dr. Konstantinos Manolopoulos studied the properties of the type of fat stored in large posteriors. Manolopoulos (Greek for “cannot lie”) discovered that this specific type of fat is better at permanently absorbing fatty acids, keeping them away from your arteries and lowering the chances of them getting clogged. What this adds up to is that women with “the big butt gene” are less likely to die from heart attacks.
The same study concluded that Jennifer Lopez will outlast the heat death of the universe.
Manolopoulos also found that body fat in the lower half of our anatomy (which he inexplicably failed to call “booty fat”) releases beneficial hormones that fight diseases like diabetes.
The fact that middle-aged men tend to gain weight in the waist and middle-aged women tend to gain it in the thighs might explain why men are more likely to have heart attacks than women. Meanwhile, the fact that rappers tend to desire big old asses might explain why Sir Mix-A-Lot was so apologetic about liking big butts. Singing a song mocking girls without life-expectancy cushions in their back pockets is just mean.

Jon Stewart’s Take on Virginia’s Transvaginal Ultrasound Bill
An Internet poll set up by the regional assembly will be used to decide on a name for the foot-and-cycle bridge that spans the Morava river. So far, the iconic tough guy is leading the pack with 74% of the vote.
Regional governor Pavol Freso will have the final word on the bridge’s official moniker once the poll closes in April, but he has already vowed to bow to the will of his constituents.

Say thanks to the Only Democracy of the Middle East.
Actually, you can give thanks to Hamas which shoots rockets at innocent civilians in the South of Israel, and forces the only democracy in the Middle East to react (mildly, I should point out: any other democracy in the world would react harshly to its civilians being rocketed on).

This is an interesting island just off the horn of Africa and the coast of Yemen. The Somali Pirates ply these waters. It is like being on a different planet. These pictures and information are excellent viewing and reading. Note: I do not know who put this together, but they did an excellent job
SOCOTRA ISLAND: You have to see it to believe it. This island simply blows away any notion about what is considered “normal” for a landscape on Earth.
Imagine waking up one day on Socotra Island and taking a good look around you. After a yelp of disbelief, you’d be inclined to think you were transported to another planet - or traveled to another era of Earth’s evolution. The second would be closer to the truth for this island, which is part of a group of 4 islands, has been geographically isolated from mainland Africa for the last 6 or 7 million years. Like the Galapagos Islands, this island is teeming with 700 extremely rare species of flora and fauna, a full 1/3 of which are endemic; that is, found nowhere else on Earth.
The climate is harsh, hot, and dry, and yet - the most amazing plant life thrives there. Situated in the Indian Ocean 250 km (155 miles) east of Somalia and 340 km (212 miles) southeast of Yemen, the wide sandy beaches rise to limestone plateaus full of caves (some 7 kilometers (4.4 miles in length) and mountains up to 1525 meters high (5007 feet).
The name Socotra is derived from a Sanskrit name meaning “The Island of Bliss.” Is it the beaches? The isolation and quiet? Or the strange and crazy botanical allure? Alien-looking plants. H. P. Lovecraft’s secret inspiration? Was the famous Chtulhu myths creator aware of these forbidding mountains with their hauntingly weird flora? (Think of plant mutations from his “The Color out of Space”) We are almost tempted to call Socotra the other “Mountains of Madness” - the trees and plants of this island were preserved thru their long geological isolation with some varieties being 20 million years old. We begin with the dracena cinnibaris or Dragon’s Blood Tree, the source of valuable resin for varnishes, dyes, and “cure-all” medicine; also (predictably) used in medieval ritual magic and alchemy.
The branches spread out into the sky and from below appear to hover over the landscape like so many flying saucers. And from above they have a distinct mushroom look.
There is also the Desert Rose (Adenium Obesium) which looks like nothing so much as a blooming elephant leg.
Dorstenia Gigas apparently does not require any soil and sinks roots straight into the bare rock.
It also has a distinct personality and likes to smile for the camera.
Somewhat similar to the weird Dorstenia Gigas, is this “Bucha” vegetable, found as far north as Croatia. I hope it’s not pregnant with anything malignant inside this sack. John Wyndham (with his “The Day of the Triffids”) would’ve loved it.
Also found in Socotra’s landscape is the ever-strange and extremely rare Cucumber Tree (Dendrosicyos Socotranum) - and, yes, it is related to what’s sitting in a pickle jar in your fridge.
Getting around can be a challenge as there are almost no roads. Despite the fact that this island has around 40,000 inhabitants, the Yemeni government put in the first roads just 2 years ago - after negotiations with UNESCO, which has declared this island a World Natural Heritage Site. I would prefer a camel ride to what is bound to be a bumpy and slow 4x4 ride. It is a quiet and peaceful enclave in an otherwise troubled world. If you decide to visit there, you can forget about beachfront hotels and restaurants. This island is geared towards Eco-tourism and sustaining the local economy and way of life.
This island is a birder’s paradise as well with 140 different species of birds …10 of which are not found anywhere else in the world. A unique Socotra Warbler, Sunbird, Starling, Bunting, Sparrow and Cisticola are among the ones found here. There are also Socotra Cormorants.
Want to see some fairy-tale (and possibly haunted) shipwrecks? There are diving tours available. Hopefully some IMAX crew would film it in all its glory one day.

Socotra is one of those “lost world” islands (separated from the world six million years ago) where intrepid travelers - particularly those seeking exotic nature and wildlife in a remote tropical setting - can go days on end without rubbing shoulders with that less-than-endangered species, tourists.
Known for decades as the Galapagos-of-the-Indian-Ocean, it’s the world’s tenth richest island for endemic plant species. And the biggest island in the Middle East is 125 kilometers (78 miles) in length and 45 kilometers (28 miles) across. Meanwhile the landscape is one of contrasts. For example, it has isolated nature preserves with dazzling wildlife (including 900 species of plants and the famous Dragon’s Blood Tree (Dracaena Cinnabara) and some of rarest birds that exist nowhere else in the world), and picturesque unspoiled sandy beaches.
