IntelCenter al-Qaeda Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) Targeting Guidance for Mass Casualty Car Bombs in US, UK & France

Matt Stanger's insight:

According to nobama al qaeda was on the run and the war on terror was coming to an end. Well it doesn't appear that he was right, suprise, and that they are in fact alive and well and preparing for more attacks on us and our allies. I couldn't help but notice how their little jihad magazine is called Inspire. And this new event comes just short of the 1 year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. The article says to target people not buildings so anywhere there's a crowd, there's a target. This isn't over and the way things are looking it never will be since these assholes want to take over the world and enforce their sharia law crap everywhere.

Teenagers who do not have the internet are at a serious disadvantage in their education, a study shows.

Matt Stanger's insight:

I remember back in the dark ages when I went to school I didn't have internet, I had to read books to get info and couldn't google a topic and copy someone else. The internet is making school unfair for some who can't access it regularly and gives others convenient ways to not have to do the work themselves just google a question and copy the answer. Maybe work requiring the internet shouldn't start till college, or at least the second half of high school.

Matt Stanger's insight:

The war on terrorism will never be truly over. These assholes aren't going to stop any time soon. If you think that 9/11 was a long time ago and that that stuff won't happen again must have been living under a rock when Boston was attacked, last year. And there's been many other attacks between 2001 and last year. Unless we just nuke the Middle East and just wipe them all out, it won't stop. And to make matters worse, all these p.c. idiots are giving in to their demands and changing things to fit their beliefs and way of life, with England probably being the worst.

“Expired” food is good for you: A supermarket exec’s bold business gamble

“Expired” food is good for you: A supermarket exec’s bold business gamble | current events | Scoop.it
Trader Joe's' former president wants to sell you the food that other stores throw out. Will it work?

Via Olivia Maloney
Matt Stanger's insight:

I don't see a problem with this. Having worked in the food section of the local Target I know about how much food gets thrown away because of a date on it even though it's still fine to eat. Even at home I don't pay attention to dates, most things will stay eatable if kept cold. And as for people who can't afford a lot of food, this is better then nothing. Can't tell people not to eat at all after all.

Olivia Maloney's curator insight, January 21, 2014 9:05 PM

Everyone is hesitant to eat foods after they say they've expired, but really, we are just being very careful about what we eat. Some people don't realize that the sell-by date is only when thw store has to sell it by. It's still good for at least a few more days. Even foods past the expiration date can still be good, depending on what it is. If we're wasting this much food, we need to realize that not this much food goes bad so quickly. Like it says in the article, we just need to convince people that the food is still worth eating.

Facts You Never Knew About Star Wars

Facts You Never Knew About Star Wars | current events | Scoop.it
Star Wars facts you'd never guess.

Via Funny Pictures
Matt Stanger's insight:

Episodes 4-6 were pretty much perfection. Makes you wonder how things might have been different if anything was changed. I can't picture anyone other that Ford playing Han, just wouldn't be the same. Can't picture Yoda and Miss Piggy being the same voice, kind of weird. I use to have a bunch of Star Wars toys, wish I still had them. Episodes 1-3 weren't that great, though I guess 3 wasn't that bad, just hope they learn from this and don't screw things up for future movies.

Matt Stanger's insight:

What the hell's wrong with people? He's a veteran that was badly injured and is now getting crap at a local restaurant? This guys done more than anyone working at this place and they want to give him crap because he has a dog? Just because they say they've had problems with other dogs doesn't mean they can keep them all out. You treat every situation independently. If this dog causes a problem then you take action, but not before.

Pacific Cove's curator insight, January 21, 2014 6:04 PM

Turning a patron away because they have a service dog violates the Americans with Disabilities Act, which states that "privately owned businesses that serve the public, such as restaurants, hotels, retail stores, taxicabs, theaters, concert halls, and sports facilities, are prohibited from discriminating against individuals with disabilities.”

10 Greatest Thrash Metal Albums Of All Time

10 Greatest Thrash Metal Albums Of All Time | current events | Scoop.it

Via Hugo Rangel
Matt Stanger's insight:

I for one would put in Master of Puppets instead of Ride the Lightning. Ride the Lightning is still awesome of course, but it doesn't say thrash the way Master of Puppets does. Of course Slayer's going to be #1 that's a given. But I think it's more of a tie instead of #1 and #2. Nice to see Sepultura on here and get the album right. That's definetly there best one and they don't get the attention they should.
