+ - Google Censors Liveleak?

pacalis writes: Does google censor competitors? The owners of liveleak.com, an online video service, recently posted a video http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=6a6_1176066336 claiming that Google has stopped indexing them. A quick peak http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=liveleak seems to add credibility to this arguement, and addtionional information is found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_by_Google.

Is google censoring this service? Is is for business or political reasons? Is this predatory? Does google have a responsibility to index this site?

+ - Boston Police Inspect Commuters

pacalis writes: The New York Times reports that "in Boston, police will begin inspecting passengers' bags on the subway system... not in response to a specific threat against the transit system here, but to the general threat of terrorism." Today, are people more affected by the threat of terrorism, or the day to day interaction with police hunting through their bags? http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/05/us/05boston.html
