Merkel Accuses Facebook, Google Of "Distorting Perception", Wants Access To Algorithms

"These algorithms, when they are not transparent, can lead to a distortion of our perception, they narrow our breadth of information" said the German chancellor adding that “the algorithms must be made public, so that one can inform oneself as an interested citizen on questions like: what influences my behavior on the internet and that of others?"

More than 80 human rights groups and other related non-governmental organizations have called on the United Nations to drop Russia from the U.N. Human Rights Council over its military campaign in Syria. Given that the rest of the Council members’ atrocities are overlooked by these so-called human rights organizations, the motives of these groups should be called into question. So what is really at play here?

Your Dog Probably Has Better Healthcare Than You Do

Undoubtedly the US is home to some of the finest medical professionals in the world. But they’ve been buried under an expensive, over-regulated bureaucracy that continues to erode overall quality in the system. So despite what may be some very good intentions to fix the system, they invariably make things worse. The end result is that your pet probably has access to more efficient healthcare than you do.

Putin Tried To Warn Us About Syria Three Years Ago, But Nobody Listened

As Russia and the United States approach arguably the most dangerous crossroads in history - and as Western media continues to crucify Russia for its actions within Syria - a closer look at the rationale Putin used for intervening in the Syrian war paints a sane explanation of how we ended up at this juncture of a global conflict.
