Furthermore, the company claims the "vast majority" of users are not at risk, but admits that in certain scenarios OS X machines could be vulnerable
In a statement to iMore, an Apple spokesperson said "the vast majority of OS X users are not at risk to recently reported bash vulnerabilities."
"Bash, a UNIX command shell and language included in OS X, has a weakness that could allow unauthorized users to remotely gain control of vulnerable systems. With OS X, systems are safe by default and not exposed to remote exploits of bash unless users configure advanced UNIX services. We are working to quickly provide a software update for our advanced UNIX users," the spokesperson said Read more...More about Tech and Apps Software

tl;dr: Everything is awful and no one is safe.
Huq, who has a nose ring and was wearing a traditional Indian tunic and pants on the day of her arrest, said she believes officers targeted her because she is Muslim and South Asian.
She added that officers went through her purse without probable cause before taking her to the Midtown South Precinct — all while her family was still inside the restaurant.
Huq’s husband and children were notified by another officer and eventually came looking for her at the precinct, according to her federal civil rights suit, which is expected to be filed Tuesday.
Officers offered to deliver Huq's purse and personal items out to her husband, but then became suspicious when she told the officer his last name was different than hers, according to the lawsuit.
"In America wives take the names of their husbands,” the officer told her according to court papers.
She was held for more than nine hours in lockup before being arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, court records show.
Chaumtoli Huq, former general counsel for NYC Public Advocate Tish James, attended a rally in Times Square with her family, and afterwards, waited on the sidewalk outside of a Ruby Tuesday restaurant while her husband took their children (10 and 6) to the bathroom. Read the rest
This is so interesting. It's saying, basically, that supertasters tend to think alcohol tastes bitter. Based strictly on my personal experience, though, I've found that nontasters tend to be more likely not to drink.
Whether or not you like the taste of alcohol may be in your genes, new research suggests.
In the study, people with one version of a bitterness taste receptor gene said they found an alcoholic drink to be less bitter-tasting than those with a different version of the gene, according to the findings published today (Sept. 23) in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research.
"The two genes, that had been previously associated with [alcohol] intake, also associated with differences in the perception of ethanol," said study author Dr. John E. Hayes, of the Sensory Evaluation Center at The Pennsylvania State University in University Park. "The reason this work is significant is because it fills in this gap, because no one had shown in the lab that the alcohol actually tastes differently depending on which [version of the gene] you have."

This is a travesty.
Earlier this month, Jennifer Whalen, a 39-year-old mother from Pennsylvania, was sentenced to prison for helping her daughter take medication abortion she had ordered online. This case is the direct result of legislation that effectively bans legal abortion by limiting women's access to providers. Congrats, conservatives, you've protected women by forcing them to resort to illegal abortion alternatives and then punishing them for it!
Wow. I think this is really true.
Have you been known to reach for the snacks while stressed? Then you won't be shocked by this similar trick of the mind: Reminders of your own inescapable mortality will inspire you to buy, buy, buy. But those shoes are for real so cute! Def get them!
This is incredibly gratifying.
This woman is probably neither the hero we need, nor the one we deserve, but it's nice to know someone cares so much about litter they're willing to risk their life for it. And that they got it all on video.
Major NFL sponsor Anheuser-Busch has issued a serious reprimand and warning to the NFL in response to the league's latest fuckery. This is even better if you imagine the puppy from this year's Super Bowl ad bark-dictating the announcement. Trust me.
I’ve got a friend and they mean a lot to me.
I don’t know anything about football, but I have a vague sense of what kinds of things TV sports anchors tend to discuss when a big game is about to start. And it usually doesn’t include toxic masculinity.
Yesterday, right before Ray Rice’s team, the Baltimore Ravens, played the Pittsburgh Steelers, CBS anchor James Brown shared a few thoughts on the roots of intimate partner violence (IPV):
Two years ago I challenged the NFL community and all men to seriously confront the problem of domestic violence, especially coming on the heels of the murder-suicide of Kansas City Chiefs football player Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins. Yet, here we are again dealing with the same issue of violence against women.
Now let’s be clear, this problem is bigger than football. There has been, appropriately so, intense and widespread outrage following the release of the video showing what happened inside the elevator at the casino. But wouldn’t it be productive if this collective outrage, as my colleagues have said, could be channelled to truly hear and address the long-suffering cries for help by so many women? And as they said, do something about it? Like an on-going education of men about what healthy, respectful manhood is all about.
And it starts with how we view women. Our language is important. For instance, when a guy says, ‘you throw the ball like a girl’ or ‘you’re a little sissy,’ it reflects an attitude that devalues women and attitudes will eventually manifest in some fashion. Women have been at the forefront in the domestic violence awareness and prevention arena. And whether Janay Rice considers herself a victim or not, millions of women in this country are.
Consider this: According to domestic violence experts, more than three women per day lose their lives at the hands of their partners. That means that since the night February 15th in Atlantic City [when the elevator incident occurred] more than 600 women have died.
So this is yet another call to men to stand up and take responsibility for their thoughts, their words, their deeds and as Deion [Sanders] says to give help or to get help, because our silence is deafening and deadly.
Ok, so I’m not going to wax on for paragraphs about James Brown the Hero of Domestic Violence. As Brown said, women have led anti-IPV work and I’m sick of throwing a parade for every man who mentions that maybe men should stop hitting women. Plus, CBS as a whole doesn’t seem to understand the problem: the network repeatedly played the video of Rice punching Janay Palmer and cut Rihanna from the show, dangerously conflating perpetrators and victims of IPV.
But, look, it’s pretty rad to hear a nuanced discussion of the ways language and conceptions of masculinity lead to violence during an NFL pregame show. That’s a testament to Brown, yes, but also to advocates who have mainstreamed what were once really out-there ideas about gendered harms.
There's not much that can be done to a horrendous shoulder tribal tattoo the size of a large chicken breast.
Despite these unfortunate limitations, Reddit user kvd still managed to change up his cliché tribal-inspired tattoo with one small, but brilliant change. In a post, he writes, "I have an ugly tribal tattoo. But I think I fixed it."

As expected, would-be iPhone 6 owners are currently wading through a torrent of trade-in and upgrade offers. It's all very, very confusing. But AT&T is being clear about one thing: If you trade in an iPhone 4, 4S, 5, or 5C, you will get at least $200 credit towards a new device*.
Amber, you got these, right? How were they?

In a sobering assessment of the ongoing Ebola outbreak in Liberia, World Health Organization (WHO) experts said Monday that thousands more people are likely to fall ill with the deadly Ebola virus within a matter of weeks.
"The number of new cases is moving far faster than the capacity to manage them in Ebola-specific treatment centers," the WHO said. "Transmission of the Ebola virus in Liberia is already intense and the number of new cases is increasing exponentially."
The assessment comes from a team of WHO experts who worked with the Liberian government and aid organizations to take stock of the response to the Ebola outbreak in the West African nation. Along with several other countries, Liberia has been hard hit by the outbreak since it began in March. Read more...More about Liberia, Us World, Politics, Us, and World
Okay guys, I owe you. Big time. So here's not one, but TWO adorable videos featuring dogs taking on tires. That's two tires and three dogs total.
Not EVERYTHING is awful.
Vivian Boyack, 91, and Alice "Nonie" Dubes, 90, were a lot of like most couples on the day of their wedding. Giddy, a little nervous and most of all, deeply in love. But things were a little different for them than they are for most of the couples who get married at First Christian Church in Davenport, Iowa. Dubes and Boyack have spent 72 years together as a couple.
There's a whole lot of nope in here. Except the "Welcome to my butthole" couple.
