Submission + - Net filter petition gets 100 signatures an hour (computerworld.com.au)

oranghutan writes: A lobby group trying to stop Australia's ISP-level internet filter group is claiming over 100 signatures an hour since launching its online petition last night. The EFA is hoping to take the petition to parliament for consideration. The government made a controversial decision to introduce the filters late last year despite howls of protest from the tech community and other representative groups like Save the Children. While there have been several calls for protest to be made this is the first concrete step being taken.

Canadian Blood Services Promotes Pseudoscience 219

trianglecat writes "The not-for-profit agency Canadian Blood Services has a section of their website based on the Japanese cultural belief of ketsueki-gata, which claims that a person's blood group determines or predicts their personality type. Disappointing for a self-proclaimed 'science-based' organization. The Ottawa Skeptics, based in the nation's capital, appear to be taking some action."
