+ - Twitter is hiring???->

Submitted by
TheLinuxSRC writes "Did you know that Twitter was hiring? Apparently, you could be making $75/hr from the comfort of your own home! I saw the ad on the Drudge Report so it has to be legit, right? I mean a site that is the one of the largest news portals on the Internet wouldn't advertise misleading, dare I say spammy items, to their loyal audience... would they?"

+ - Kentucky Governor attempts to regulate gambling.->

Submitted by
TheLinuxSRC writes "Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has announced he wants to shut down 141 illegal Internet gambling sites in the state in an effort to stop unregulated online gaming.

Beshear has filed a civil suit against the 141 domain names and is asking the court to force the sites to block access to Kentucky users or give up control of their domain names.

Many in the gambling industry are not happy about Kentucky's move to take legal action to seize the domain names of online gambling Web sites."

+ - Subtitle manipulation tools for Linux

Submitted by
TheLinuxSRC writes "The problem: Many DVDs do not have subtitles for certain languages or (more importantly to me) for the hearing impaired. Closed captioning, while a good solution for its time, does not compare to subtitles. Having a deaf sister and being a Linux user, I began looking for subtitle utilities that can be used in Linux to add subtitles to media. I recently found an excellent article which gives a nice rundown of open-source tools for working with subtitles."
