The whitewashed cast of Exodus: Gods and Kings isn't the only inaccuracy plaguing Ridley Scott's revision — "historical mistakes" cited by Egypt's state censorship and minister of culture made it all but impossible for the film to push through the traditional ban on depicting religious figures.
Deadline writer Ali Jaafar reported Friday that Abdul Sattar Fathi, head of the Egyptian state censorship board, and Egypt's minister of culture have openly criticized Exodus' accuracy, a sure sign that any hope of playing in the very country it depicts is gone.Entertainment, Movies, Film, and Exodus Gods And Kings
The traditionally yellow and white protective gear that has become a symbol of Ebola treatment in West Africa got a makeover on Christmas Eve as four medical workers in Liberia transformed into Santa, elves and Frosty the Snowman with the help of a little spray paint.
Workers at the International Medical Corps treatment unit in Bong County used what they could to bring Christmas cheer to the sick. Santa, played by Paul, a logistician from Florida, painted his gear red and used inflated plastic bags to add some chunk to his waist, Maia Baldauf, an emergency program officer for International Medical Corps wrote for Quartz Read more...More about Liberia, Us World, World, Pics, and Ebola
There are a lot of tools online that claim to offer you total privacy. But when dealing with something like Internet anonymity, it's hard to be sure
One that's widely agreed to be among the best available is Tor. If used correctly, the Tor browser and network cloaks online activity in anonymity; your online traffic isn't traceable back to you. It's less about keeping credit card numbers secure and more about allowing you to browse the web and communicate with others without revealing who and where you are.
But Tor was attacked on Friday. The hacker group known as Lizard Squad — or at least a Twitter account claiming to be involved with the collective — said that it was going after Tor. According to Tor, which has confirmed the attack, but not the perpetrator, there should be no effects on anonymity or performance. But some experts have speculated that the hackers could track the network's users.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio can't win with the New York Police Department.
Amid criticism that he was not supporting police, de Blasio plans to attend funeral services for slain Officer Rafael Ramos on Saturday. Ramos was killed, along with his partner, in an ambush shooting on Dec. 20.
But the New York City Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, the largest police union in the city, has encouraged officers to sign a request to keep the mayor from attending their funeral if they are killed in the line of duty. The union was circulating the form before the two officers were killed. Read more...More about New York City, Nypd, Us World, Us, and Bill De Blasio

Sony's PlayStation Network remains unavailable after an attack on the system took it down on Christmas Day, just as recipients of new consoles looked to log online.

Beginning Jan. 2, undocumented immigrants will be able to apply for a driver's license in California.
Assembly Bill 60, or the Safe and Responsible Drivers Act, removes the need for individuals to prove that they are in the country legally, while the rest of the process for getting a driver's license remains the same.
The California license will have the words “Federal Limits Apply” on the front of the card, with an explanation on the back that it is valid for driving in the state but cannot be used for federal purposes.
Tens of thousands of immigrants are expected to apply. But immigrant advocates are warning that anyone who previously obtained a license under a false name or with a stolen Social Security number needs to consult a lawyer. Read more...More about Driving, California, Us World, and Us
DUBLIN (AP) — A brain-dead pregnant woman was taken off life support Friday after a court ruled that her 18-week-old fetus was doomed to die — a case that exposed fear and confusion among doctors over how to apply Ireland's strict ban on abortion in an age of medical innovation.
The three-judge Dublin High Court said that all artificial support for the woman should end more than three weeks after she was declared clinically dead. Her relatives gathered at a hospital in the Irish Midlands to bid farewell to the unidentified woman, who was in her late 20s and had two young children.
