Malaysia Airlines Plane Crashes in Ukraine With 295 on Board
The headline is a bit misleading since according to the article it was shot down by ground to air missiles. That's not the same as a crash in my mind, though just as tragic for the families of those on board. Think it's time to change flight plans away from the Russian Ukraine border for a while.

Re: The Bad News Thread

Just saw this. Not what I want to see before I fly to Ireland, but the fact that it was a missile attack is better than it being a crash.
Probably more tragic for the families that it was shot down. Unreal.

Re: The Bad News Thread

I thought we had it bad with internet in America. Turns out Turkey is much worse.

New Turkish Internet law to deepen censorship and increase surveillance: HRW - RIGHTS

Social media and opposition to blame for protests, says Turkish PM | World news | The Guardian
Quote:
"We think that the main opposition party, which is making resistance calls on every street, is provoking these protests," Erdogan said on Turkish television, as an estimated 10,000 demonstrators streamed into the area waving flags and calling on the government to resign.

"There is now a menace which is called Twitter," Erdogan said. "The best examples of lies can be found there. To me, social media is the worst menace to society."
Guy makes Putin practically look like the Dalai Lama (who lives in Atlanta btw).

The biggest surprise of this is I did a report back in college on the overall business and marketing climate in Turkey where I actually got a chance to speak about the country with actual Turks. What I learned at the time was that it was unfair to compare Turkey to the rest of the Middle East in terms of rights. However it seems like the leaders are dragging the country further and further away from the EU and more towards the rest of the Middle East.

Unreal. This is fantastic bad news .... Wait - nevermind.
I once had dinner with the hare krishnas in Atlanta.
Edit: that is seriously scary shit. This world is effed up.
