Links and Thoughts

As always I enjoy providing some links and excerpts to stories that have caught my eye.

"IBM said it is developing an application to analyze how discussions on blogs and other Web sites are affecting a given corporation's image."
French Youths Turn to Web, Cell Phones to Plan Riots

"Young rioters are using blog messages to incite violence and cellphones to organize attacks in guerrilla-like tactics they have copied from anti-globalisation protesters, security experts say."
Iran to propose Middle East peace plan to UN

TEHRAN -- Iran will propose its own peace plan to the United Nations to stop the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on November 7, days after Iran's president said that Israel should be "wiped off the map".
More noise to distract people from what they really want.

Female rapist sentenced

"The woman was sentenced according to rape laws, for having obtained sexual access to a sleeping man. This was the appeals trial, after she had been sentenced to nine months for the same offense.

The assault took place at a post-party gathering in a Bergen apartment on Sunday, Jan. 4, 2004. The woman admitted to taking the man's erect penis in her mouth but claimed that he was awake and approved.

The man awoke and became extremely upset and has had psychological difficulties as a result of the incident. The appeals jury again found in favor of the man's version, the woman having suffered a severe loss of credibility by changing her story just before the first trial began."

Pleasant dreams turn into a horrid reality or so he must claim.
