I gotta say, this is in really bad taste

I get the purpose, but really? Couldn't they have found a better way?


The proprietors of the Auschwitz concentration camp have found themselves in hot water after installing showers in the former Nazi extermination camp in a bid to “cool down” visitors to the onetime slaughterhouse, which is now a museum commemorating the Holocaust.

Mist showers have reportedly been installed at the death camp’s entrance to help tourists battle the high summer temperatures in Poland, where Auschwitz is located.

T.S. Erika looks to be headed toward Florida or the Carolinas

http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/tropical-storm-erika-born-in-t/52021729

Should Erika strengthen rapidly, the system could curve along or east of the Atlantic coast of Florida.
How soon Erika makes more of a turn to the northwest and then to the north will determine the extent of impacts in the Bahamas and Florida. If the system survives as far north as Florida, there will be concerns farther north into the Southern states, especially in the Carolinas and perhaps as far west as Louisiana.
There is also the chance the system stalls along the Southeast U.S. coast after negotiating Florida waters.
Which scenario unfolds will depend on the strength of an area of high pressure set to build over the western Atlantic Ocean late this week and into the weekend. This high is the reason for the cooler air pouring into the Northeast late this week.
At this point, the amount of rain, wind and flooding from Erika in Florida and the Bahamas will depend on the exact track and strength of the system this weekend and into early next week.

if anyone wants a glimpse of North Korean TV

There is a stream online. You have to install VLC Player to view it, however.

The stream is at :

It's an incredibly surreal experience which does give some insight into their mindset.

North Korea ramps it up a notch

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3205700/Kim-Jong-orders-North-Korean-troops-war-footing.html

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ordered his troops onto a war footing after Pyongyang issued an ultimatum to Seoul to halt anti-North propaganda broadcasts or face military action.
U.S. and South Korean surveillance detected the movement of North Korean short-range and medium-range missiles in preparation for possible launches, according a government source in Seoul.
South Korean Vice Defence Minister Baek Seung-joo said it was likely the North would fire at some of the 11 sites where the loudspeakers are set up on the South's side of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) which separates the two countries.
And a North Korean sympathiser with close knowledge of the regime claimed Pyongyang was ready to 'go nuclear' if South Korea doesn't respond to the demands.

Fire exchange over Korean DMZ, some evacuated

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-34001126

South Korea has ordered the evacuation of residents from an area of its western border after an exchange of fire with North Korea, reports say.
North Korea fired a shell at a South Korean military unit on Thursday, prompting the south to retaliate with several artillery rounds, the South's defence ministry said.
South Korea's National Security Council is due to hold an emergency session...
North Korea fired a projectile towards Yeoncheon, a town north-west of Seoul, at 15:52 local time (06:52 GMT), the defence ministry said.
Reports suggest the target could have been a loudspeaker broadcasting anti-Pyongyang messages.
The South then fired "dozens of rounds of 155mm shells" towards where they thought the rocket was launched from, the ministry added in a statement.

Ashley Madison hackers release names, addresses, other data

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3202851/Ashley-Madison-customers-exposed-Hackers-finally-posted-details-cheating-spouses-use-adultery-site.html

Hackers today outed millions of cheating spouses using the Ashley Madison infidelity website by publishing all their personal details and sexual fantasies online.
The names, ages, addresses, phone numbers and credit card details of up to 37million users including 1.2million in the UK were revealed in a 9.7 gigabyte file called 'Time's Up!' posted on the dark web.
Bankers, civil servants, UN peacekeepers and even Vatican employees have been outed by hackers from the Impact Team because they are considered 'cheating dirtbags'.
The Ashley Madison website, which is known as the 'Google of cheating', has called the data breach 'an act of criminality' and the FBI is now investigating.



Although hacking is obviously wrong, I'm finding it hard to have sympathy for the victims.
