The opening salvo in the U.S.’ diplomatic attack on Russia over Edward Snowden comes from the band that once release a song that once tried to slip a profanity on the radio by using NATO phonetic spelling. That’s the best we’ve got, CIA?!?
Fake edit: Seriously, though, this was a terrible idea, terrible band we’re shocked is still together.

What once seemed like an isolated green-paint incident is now officially a wave. Fortunately, they caught the lady who had allegedly been splattering paint on the Lincoln Memorial, the National Cathedral and a Smithsonian statue. (Washington National Cathedral photo)

Earlier today, in response to an inquiry from a media outlet, a summer intern acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft. The NTSB does not release or confirm the names of crewmembers or people involved in transportation accidents to the media. We work hard to ensure that only appropriate factual information regarding an investigation is released and deeply regret today’s incident.
The NTSB, in a press release revealing that an intern released falsely confirmed the obviously-fake Asiana Airlines pilot names to KTVU earlier today. By the way, KTVU is far from the only San Francisco-area station that’s had blunders or embarrassing moments on air, but in most of those cases, there wasn’t obvious racism playing a factor. (Edit to clarify.)

Did the new Crossfire start?

I imagine, as this panel discussion takes place, Jeff Zucker is in his lair at the CNN studios in Atlanta, rigidly stroking a Chihuahua, wondering how his plan to ruin cable news is going.

I’ve poured my blood, sweat, tears, energy and money into for almost 2 years. I was both astonished and demoralized to find that my entire brand, image and web personality was swiped for use in a marketing campaign by some massive multi-billion dollar a year company, without ever being asked for permission or acknowledged.
Turner Barr, creator of the popular travel blog Around The World In 80 Jobs (currently down) • Discussing the theft of his concept by a human relations company, Adecco, which was so adept at stealing the concept that they trademarked the name themselves, created a video similar to Barr’s that featured an actor pretending to be a travel blogger, and overtook Barr’s own concept in the search results. The company defended its actions on its Facebook page, stating: “We understand there is concern with the use of the term ‘Around The World In 80 Jobs’ and we take this seriously. We’ve worked to resolve this and to create a mutually beneficial solution. We will continue to do so.” Dear Adecco: If you feel like stealing the concept for ShortFormBlog, please don’t.

On the hiring side, we found that brainteasers are a complete waste of time. How many golf balls can you fit into an airplane? How many gas stations in Manhattan? A complete waste of time. They don’t predict anything. They serve primarily to make the interviewer feel smart.
Laszlo Bock, senior vice president of people operations at Google, revealing the brain-teasers Google used in an effort to attract smart people failed to actually attract smart people. Now they just hire movie stars for internships.
