Science & Technology Hackers Resurrect Tupac With Bogus Story

Published by EOTM News Editor on May 30th, 2011 - in Celebrity News

A hacker group angry at a PBS documentary about WikiLeaks hit back at the broadcaster by posting a fake story on its website claiming rapper Tupac Shakur was “alive and well” in New Zealand.

The story on PBS’ NewsHour site said that the famous rapper, who was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996, had actually been found living in a small New Zealand town, along with fellow murdered rapper Biggie Smalls, Forbes reported Monday.

PBS pulled down the story but it was archived by Google News and spread quickly through Facebook and Twitter.

“Again, our site has been hacked — please stay with us as we work on it,” read one of the NewsHour’s several tweets responding to the incident.

Hacking group LulzSec claimed responsibility for the cheeky sting in retaliation for a PBS report critical of WikiLeaks and suspected leaker Bradley Manning aired May 24.

The hackers also posted a list of user names and passwords for PBS staff.

“We just finished watching WikiSecrets and were less than impressed. We decided to sail our Lulz Boat over to the PBS servers for further… perusing. Anyway, say hello to the insides of the PBS servers, folks,” an internet post from LulzSec said.

Gil Scott-Heron Passes Away – But Not Forgotten

Published by EOTM News Editor on May 29th, 2011 - in Celebrity News

“Not running for my life, because I have to be running for something of more value to be running and not in fear” Gil Scott-Heron

 

American poet, musician and author Gil Scott-Heron, best known for spoken-word songs such as “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” died May 27 at a New York City hospital at the age of 62. The Associated Press reported that he became sick upon returning from a European trip.

He is sometimes called “the Godfather of Rap,” but rejected the title, even though rappers such as Kanye West, Common, and Tupac have sampled his works.

Gil, more accurately suggested a mix of Richard Pryor’s darkly comical oratory, beat poetry and blues-inflected ballad-singing.

Heron made poetry of confrontation and art out of everyday life. As the critic Nelson George once wrote, Scott-Heron was a “keyboardist, poet, singer, rapper, and teller of uncomfortable truths.” Those truths could encompass everything from chastising the President of the United States to musing about how difficult it sometimes is for a man to tell his child, “I love you.”

An uncompromising artist working in a machine that thrives on compromise, Scott-Heron was an imperfect fit for the disco and MTV eras, though his “uncomfortable truths” resonated with those who wanted more out of music than  just escapist good times. His devotion and passion to music will live on forever and he will be missed. May you rest in peace, Gil Scott-Heron.

 

We will leave our reader with a lil peace of Gil-Scott Heron — please share your comments below.

Today, May 28, 2011 – our President Barack Obama was in Warsaw, Poland whereas he held a bilateral meeting announcing that the United States has agreed to send F-16 fighter jets and C-130 cargo aircraft to train in Poland.

In a quick first step, F-16s from the California Air National Guard will work alongside Polish F-16s this July in a training exercise as part of the preparations for the EURO 2012 soccer tournament.

Military insiders report the dispatch of U.S. pilots to Poland sends a message of assurance to Polish leaders who are skittish about Obama’s work to improve relations with Poland’s old nemesis, Russia.
