Big Sis’ Border Fence; Schumer’s Dire Warning; SCOTUS On The Verge; Facebook’s Eye In

06.24.13 07:02 AM

Here is a collection of some of the stories making the Internet rounds this morning. Click the links for the full stories.

  • Another loophole inserted into the new version of the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill allows Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (or any of her successors) to nix the construction of a required border security fence if she does not find it to be an “appropriate” use of resources. Source: Breitbart*
  • As the Supreme Court of the United States heads into its summer recess at the end of June, we’re still awaiting decisions this week in four landmark cases. “In the court’s modern history, I don’t think there has ever been one week with so much at stake,” said Tom Goldstein, founder of the respected SCOTUSblog website. “We have four pending cases that may be cited for at least a century” involving Affirmative Action, the Voting Rights Act, the definition of marriage and the Defense of Marriage Act. Source: Free Republic*
  • Senator Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the Senate immigration reform bill, said House Republicans would likely spark massive civil rights rallies if they try to quash measures to create a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country. Source: The Hill*
  • According to admissions in its blog, posted late Friday afternoon, Facebook appears to be obtaining users’ offsite email address and phone numbers and attempting to match them to other accounts. It appears that the invisible collected information is then being stored in each user’s ‘shadow profile’ that is somehow attached to accounts. The data is being gathered about individuals through their Facebook *friends’ information about them – harvested when a user grants Facebook address book or contact list access. Source: ZDNet
  • An FDA-approved pill has appeared that allows the electronic devices of people who take it to recognize identity and remember passwords. It uses batteries that run off stomach acid and last for 30 days. The controversial pill is being championed by DARPA Director-turned-Motorola executive Regina Dugan. “Essentially, your entire body becomes your authentication token,” she says. Source: Daily Mail*
