A Rare Plea for Leniency in This Age of Online Dating

Even though I am off Tinder and Bumble—off off, not delete-the-app-in-a-fit-of-pique-but-keep-giving-them-Facebook-access off—and blissfully the same except all the f*ckboys I meet are IRL now, those damn apps still won’t leave me be. How are those instruments of auto-torture still so culturally pervasive? And can we really say we’re in the dating apocalypse if everyone (else) is still swiping like there’s no tomorrow? Debatable, but at least one corner of hell must have frozen over if I’m here as I am now, about to take a stand for all the un-photogenic people out there whose wills to find companionship digitally haven’t yet crumpled like so many Egg McMuffin wrappers.

A Mother’s Plea to Secretary Clinton

2016-05-13-1463158736-2328-baby.jpg

Dear Secretary Clinton,

Tomorrow, I will do the unthinkable. Once again, I will pass over a newborn. My heart will break, despite praying that I would not have to experience this pain for the fourth time.

I’m told to toughen up. I’m reminded that I should be thankful I have a job. I get told again and again that I have the easiest job of being a teacher and the best schedule that a working mother could hope for.

Yes, I have toughened up. Yes, I am thankful I have a job.

Government pressure for Apple to bypass iPhone encryption reduced as owner enters guilty plea

Jun Feng, a defendant in a criminal case, has entered a guilty plea, removing pressure from a New York court to decide quickly whether Apple is required to aid investigators by bypassing his iPhone 5s passcode. Feng had been indicted on three counts related to the possession and distribution of methamphetamine. The U.S. Department of Justice had asked the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York for an expedited decision so as to secure evidence in a trial scheduled to begin on Nov. 16. But on Thursday, DOJ informed the court that Feng has entered a guilty plea. “The government persists in the application pending before the Court, but in view of the guilty plea, no longer requests expedited treatment,” U.S. Attorney Robert L. Capers wrote in a letter to Magistrate Judge James Orenstein. The guilty plea will probably raise questions as to whether access to the iPhone data was really critical to the DOJ’s investigations. The dispute over whether Apple is required to assist the DOJ in its investigations is one of many controversies surrounding the use of access protection and encryption by tech companies in their products and services. Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James […]

Vernal mother takes plea deal in child abuse case

A Vernal woman has accepted a plea deal from Uintah County prosecutors, agreeing not to contest allegations that she let her husband physically abuse their son and admitting that she lied to investigators about the abuse.

Police and prosecutors say Smith, 26, knowingly allowed her husband, Adam Joshua Smith, to inflict a life-threatening head injury on the couple’s 7-year-old son.

A 19-year-old Joplin man pleaded guilty Monday to a reduced charge in a felony child abuse case involving a 2-month-old baby brought to Freeman Hospital West with bite marks on his legs and respiratory difficulties.

Thaddeus M. Garrison pleaded guilty in Jasper County Circuit Court to first-degree child endangerment in a plea agreement with the prosecutor’s office.

PREVIOUS STORY: DC Fire employees investigated for fraud Investigators said the fraud occurred over a three year period. Suspicious activity such as filling up more gas than the vehicle could take and getting gas more than once a day raised red flags.
