New Pics -- Angelina Jolie Legs at the Oscars

I couldn't believe what I was seeing with Angelina Jolie at the Oscars.

Whitney Houston Casket Photo -- Is this good taste?

Wow !!! I bet this sold a lot of tabloids. Something inside of me tells me that it is in incredibly bad taste, and yet it definitely piques the interest. I have to admit that I was curious. Is it something about a fascination with the dead?

Guide to Safe Whistleblowing -- How to Be a Whistleblower

This is a guide to safe whistleblowing. It is by no means a comprehensive guide. It contains basic useful information.

Whistleblowing is an essential element of democracy, and whistleblowers often suffer for their righteous acts. These are some ways to protect yourself from those who don't want to be exposed.

Ten Steps to WhistleBlowing

1)Always use a proxy server when accessing your account to do whistleblowing. A proxy server hides your true computer IP address from those who want to find out your identity. Here is an example of an anonymous surfing proxy service: http://www.megaproxy.com/freesurf/

2) Create a separate email address with no identifying characteristcs. The name in the email address should be totally non-identifying. Use a free web service for you email to do whistleblowing. Never use your regular email account. Use it only for whistleblowing and each time you send a message from it, delete the contact from your address book.

3) Do not forward that email address to your regular account. Use twitter over email and email over Facebook. Never use Facebook. Never post on a public forum. Most public forums are open source -- meaning that the software for them is open to the public and can easily be hacked to find your IP address when you post to them.

4) Always use at least 15 characters and numbers in both the user name and password -- resists mechanized hacking and scripts that test various combinations. An easy way to do this is to create user names and passwords with numbers that look like letters. For example: b1rdm4n_s0n8 can be read as birdman_son8 and is a mix of numbers and characters.

5) Never click on a link sent to your email account. A recent whistleblower was identified by a web analytics program when he clicked on a website link sent to him by a reporter who was not sympathetic to his cause. Most websites that you surf to, track IP addresses.

6)Never access your twitter or email from a mobile phone. This makes it way too easy to find out who you are.

7) Try to use public computers (in a library) or WIFI hotspots where the IP addressed cannot be traced.

8) However when using public computers to send communications, be aware of security cameras near where you use the computer. Do not cross in front of a security camera on your way to posting updates to Twitter.

9) Practise and adopt a different persona with different ways of writing than your normal way of communicating. If you are a formal person, use chopped sentences and LOL and OMG. If you always use them, start using big words to disguise your normal pattern of communication.

10) Never speak as a single entity or the lone wolf whistle blower. Speak as a group of concerned citizens. Things are taken more seriously if there is a group of people, not just one malcontent.

These are just some of the things you should know. You should research twitter hashtags to learn how to disseminate your message to the widest possible audience. There are more tricks and tips, and I will assemble another article with them.

Happy Whistleblowing.

The Most Romantic Unusual Thing That You Can Do For A Woman

I have been sleeping with the enemy for a long time, and the other day, I decided to eavesdrop on women's conversations on anniversaries and such, and what they found most romantic in a man when you are in a long term relationship.

I was astounded to learn, that apparently what working women appreciate most, is that their cars are always filled with gas by their man. So men, gather around. If you are looking for ideas as to what the most romantic thing that you can do for a women, is give her a certificate saying that her car will be filled with gas (by you) for a week, month, or year, depending on your level of commitment and whether you are really into her or not.

You are welcome !!!

Winter In Provence In the South of France


The south of France, Provence, rarely gets snow. But you may have heard of the terrific winter storms across Europe. Here are some shots of the Luberon Valley in Provence from this winter's snow storms.






The vines are all covered with snow. In some parts of Provence, there are palm trees. I bet they didn't like this.

Election Time in The Bahamas -- Proof Reader Needed For Corrupt Party

The Bahamas gained independence in 1973 from Britain. They elected Lynden Pindling as Prime Minister, and he ran one of the most corrupt governments ever under the banner of the PLP or Progressive Liberal Party. A small island called Norman's Cay in the Exumas was given over entirely to the Columbian cocaine cartels under Pablo Escobar, and with the protection of the Bahamian government and the PLP party, they ran cocaine into the United States for years.

The Bahamas ditched the PLP in 1992, but after 10 years of progressive rule, they defeated a referendum by the FNM party (Free National Movement) that would have liberalized the economy and gave constitutional equality to women -- something that the Bahamas still doesn't have. The FNM lost the election in 2002 as well.

The PLP came in from 2002 to 2007 and again ran an extremely corrupt government. One of the most famous scandals of the PLP was the Anna Nicole Smith scandal and Minister Shane Gibson.

The PLP ran Shane Gibson again after it was proven that he was bribed by a Rolex watch, and he conducted an affair with Anna Nicole Smith, and the irony was that he won his seat in Parliament. The PLP are running him again.

During the PLP tenure, they ran an amazing kleptocracy and stole millions from the treasury. Now they are trying to get elected again this year.

Take a look at their election sign. They need a proof reader. (In case you didn't get it the first time, the word "THE" is repeated twice).
