Join the largest online protest since SOPA to stop NSA spying


The facts are clear: the NSA has turned the Internet into a massive surveillance system. They're using the websites we love to track our every move. On July 4th, people are protesting in more than 100 cities across the U.S. The Internet Defense League and more than 30,000 websites will join the protest. Will you?

Alyssa Serrano's curator insight, March 4, 2014 10:58 PM

People want to take the fourth amendment away because they feel the NSA is spying on them through websites we use everyday. Some people have boycotted the internet on certain days so that they don't feel their rights are being violated. 

Chelsie DeBus's comment, March 6, 2014 10:06 AM
People think that the government should take away the 4th amendment so then they are not getting spied on when they are on the computer using the internet. That makes totally sense I wouldn't want to get spied on either. Sometimes they find out stuff by spying on different people. This article also said that some people don't use the computer on certain days to not get spied on by the NSA. I don't feel it is right to turn it into a huge surveillance system to track things.

Are Highly Sensitive Men More Creative?

Are Highly Sensitive Men More Creative? | 21st_Century Good: Social and Content | Scoop.it

So, I listened to this guy, and he’s got a hypnotic effect. He plays acoustic guitar, of course; and he is a real poet; and he’s a very sensitive guy.”

Record producer John Hammond, about Leonard Cohen

 

Psychologist Elaine Aron and other researchers find that approximately 20 percent of the population has the personality trait of high sensitivity, equally divided between males and females.

 

“Virtually all of the HSMs in my study enthusiastically shared with me how much they appreciated the positive aspects of being sensitive. For example, many men discussed how their intuition, creativity and ability to notice subtleties in the environment has helped strengthen their relationships, succeed in work, and deeply enjoy music and art projects." Psychologist Ted Zeff
