Yahoo! Mail is the latest to put the lie to Microsoft’s claims that they can get a billion Windows 10 devices without its phone operating system

Basking Ridge, N.J. — It seems that being a desktop-only app was just too much for Yahoo! and Verizon.

Yahoo! announced on Monday that the app will cease to work on May 22. In fact, the app has already been pulled from the Windows Store on PC.

Well, this is the end for Yahoo Mail app on Windows 10. #goodbyeyahoo

The app usage was not very high to begin with, and with massive security issues that propelled Marissa Mayer to resign and give up her bonus, the usage no doubt got smaller and smaller. Read the rest of this entry »

Columbia County transgender man dies – judicial activist David Roper is one cause of death

Grovetown, Ga. — A 25-year-old transgender man is dead and a judicial activist sitting on the bench at a Columbia County courthouse in Evans is to blame.

Rowan Feldhaus, 25, died after complications from surgery and another reason –  judicial activist David Roper’s refusal to allow name changes to go through in a timely manner.

“It was complications post surgery and then he was readmitted post surgery and it started snowballing from there,” his friend, Austin Atkins, said.

Rowan Feldhaus, 25, of Augusta, was in the final stages of transitioning into a man. He started the process about 25 months ago. Last year, he petitioned the court to legally change his name to Rowan Elijah.

Roper denied his request stating, “My policy has been that I will not change a name from an obvious female name to an obvious male name and vice versa.” The same judge also denied another local transgender man from changing his name too.

Roper’s decision led to Mr. Feldhaus’s death. He needs to be removed from the bench.

Victory, although subdued: Permitless carry, open carry bill dead for 2017


Columbia — The regular session of the South Carolina state legislature has ended.

It ended at 17:00 today and while it is a major defeat for many adults due to the failure of the legislature to even consider the bill decriminalizing marijuana, this session did turn out to be a subdued victory for our children.

That’s because the South Carolina Senate ran out of time to pass a dangerous House bill that endangers our children and their public welfare and public safety. Read the rest of this entry »

Bad Girls Advice screenshot

Menlo Park, Calif. — By now, you know that Facebook has a major problem with violent content, something that Everyday Sexism’s Laura Bates revealed in an exposé in 47 months ago.

Turns out, Mark Zuckerberg has learned absolutely nothing from the #FBRape campaign of 2013.

The latest example (out of many) of the Facebook’s irresponsible corporate culture comes via an Sydney-based Facebook group called Bad Girls Advice. Read the rest of this entry »

Think of the children – KILL OPEN CARRY NOW, Senators!

think about the children text

Columbia — Sixty-four members of the South Carolina State House of Representatives clearly showed recently that they do not care about our kids as they passed a bill legalizing open carry in most public places.

And to make matters worse, Governor Henry McMaster has vowed to sign the bill that would make our children sitting ducks too hot headed yahoos by allowing these people to carry firearms without a permit.

We are all to familiar with the what happened in Colorado Springs, Colo. on Samhain 2015. Read the rest of this entry »
