Stephan Petett's curator insight, August 27, 8:40 PM

Hacking has become a fear nationally, now it has taken the next step towards hacking American Airlines; an international corporation. The hackers have been traced to China, with this most recent hacking the hackers have gained personal information of millions of U.S citizens that have traveled with American Airlines. New Net Neutrality laws are being formed to combat the intense wave of hacking across the globe. Hacking has become a fear worldwide, millions of people's personal information is being leaked. Knowing that the hackers are Chinese this definitely adds tot he tension building up between the U.S and China. I feel that hackers need to be traced and punished for their actions, and cyber security definitely needs to be strengthened. We can not allow private information of citizens to be taken and used.

Among the FCC majority that approved the rules—the vote was 3-2—was Mignon Clyburn, the first African American female chair of the FCC. She has talked frequently about the fact that lower-income and minorities are more reliant on mobile for broadband access than the general population, but argued they also deserved "a robust experience on par with their wired peers," and thus supported "erasing the distinction."

(Reuters) - A Missouri man who used dozens of military headstones to make a patio at his house will not face criminal charges and the headstones would be destroyed, authorities said on Tuesday. The headstones the unidentified homeowner used were never U.S. government property, never placed at a cemetery or stolen and no state of federal charges will result, Ozark County Sheriff Darrin Reed said. The homeowner told ABC television affiliate KSPR in Springfield, Missouri, that he regretted using the headstones, which he found in a landfill about a decade ago.

In a climax to nearly non-stop talks at the truce village of Panmunjom, North Korea agreed to apologize for having set a landmine that severely wounded two South Korean army sergeants. South Korea, at the same time, acceded to the North's demand to stop loud broadcasts of music and news, including those making light of Kim Jong-un, whose status in the North as leader is one of a near-deity.

Doubts emerged Wednesday over the authenticity of an Italian painting supposedly worth $1.5 mn, which hit headlines after a 12-year-old boy punched a hole through it as he tripped and fell during an exhibition in Taiwan. Organisers said the "Flowers" painting, which forms part of a collection of 55 artworks in Taipei, was by Italian artist Paolo Porpora and dated back to the 1600s. David Sun, head of TST Art of Discovery Co which sponsored the Taiwan exhibition, insisted that the two paintings were different, without going into details.
