Self-Serve Coffee Shop Manages To Make Money On The Honor System

by Mary Beth Quirk

You might think that offering customers the choice to pay whatever they want for something would be a sure way to the poorhouse. But one North Dakota coffee shop is not only making its honor system work, but it’s making money.

The owner of a North Dakota coffee shop says all the attention he’s gotten lately for his idea of charging customers whatever they want to pay is nice and all, but it’s not that surprising — everyone there knows their neighbors.

“I think that people who haven’t grown up in a small, tight-knit community like this are very surprised by honesty,” he tells the Associated Press.





He and his wife run the shop in a town of about 6,700 people, and don’t employ baristas. Instead, customers pick out their choice of coffee from a dispenser or choose a single-serve Keurig option, as well as pastries and soft drinks.

Prices are listed, but it’s up to customers to decide what to pay by credit card, cash or check. Change isn’t necessary, a sign instructs, just “round down and give yourself a break or round up and help us stay in business.”

That practice has brought in 15% more money than the asking prices for items, and the customers seem happy.

“I like the self-serve,” one teen says, saying it’s nice to not feel smothered. “There’s not someone like hovering over you all the time.”

RWB WELCOMES US JOURNALIST’S RELEASE IN SYRIA

As originally posted: Reporters Without Borders
August 26, 2014


Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that Peter Theo Curtis, a freelance journalist and author held hostage by the Jihadi group Al-Nosra in Syria since October 2012, was released yesterday.

We welcome Theo Curtis’ release after 22 months in captivity and we hope that similar efforts will be made to save the lives of other hostages held by militants in Syria,” said Reporters Without Borders assistant research director Virginie Dangles.





Curtis, 45, who writes under the name of Theo Padnos, was abducted by Al-Nosra, Al-Qaeda’s official wing in Syria, in southern Turkey as he was about to cross into Syria to report on the situation there.

His abduction was kept secret until his release, just days after Islamic State posted a video online showing US journalist James Foley’s staged execution by one of its militants. The video also showed Steven Sotloff, another US journalist who Islamic State is threatening to execute.

Black Market Cannabis Road Hacked, $100,000 in Bitcoin Lost

by Pete Rizzo

As originally posted on: CoinDesk
August 25, 2014


Cannabis Road is now offline after suffering from an attack that saw hackers abscond with 200 BTC or roughly $100,355 at press time.

Users who attempt to access the online marketplace dedicated to cannabis products are now presented with a message from lead developer Crypto detailing the attack and the potential paths forward for the development team.

Crypto writes that he discovered the theft at roughly 10:15 AM UTC, after logging into Cannabis Road’s bitcoin wallet and noticing the balance was near zero.

He recalls:

“At first I thought it was a mistake, until I double checked, and triple checked, only to find out, we had in fact been robbed not 15 minutes earlier!”

The developer goes on to reveal the bitcoin address allegedly holding the stolen funds, before asserting that he does not yet know how the money is stolen.

Crypto concludes his message by issuing an apology to site users while expressing his current uncertainty over whether the project will be able to continue, adding:

“I am deeply sorry that I have failed you as a developer and a leader, and if I can figure out how this happened, maybe you will find it in your hearts to move past this and help us bring Cannabis Road back to life once again.”

Multisig employed

The success of the attack is particularly notable given that Cannabis Road had moved to integrate safeguards aimed at better protecting user funds through multi-signature technology, an evolution of the traditional wallet offering that introduces an arbitrator to the transaction process.

In a May interview with DeepDotWeb, Crypto indicated that Cannabis Road was using a hybrid version of multisig, however, in part to make the technology easier for its customers to use.

At the time, he indicated that Cannabis Road had added three levels of multisig in response to a rise in attacks against illicit websites, explaining:

“All three levels start off the same, asking for public keys of the buyer, vendor and market to create the shared (multisignature) address. The buyer sends funds to the shared address. Once the buyer is happy, the buyer agrees to finalize the order, this is where the three levels are offered.”

Two more advanced levels were added on top of this service, both of which put restrictions on the situations in which users would be asked to send their private keys.

Transparency promised

Crypto also promises Cannabis Road users that he will share information on the attack as it was discovered in order to provide more information to the broader deep web community.

Further, he estimates the damage of the attack to be significant for the online marketplace’s brand, suggesting that whether it continues to exist will be up to the site’s community.

Crypto wrote:

“I don’t know if Cannabis Road will continue to exist or not at this point, because there may be no reasonable way for us to recover from this.”

Notably, the site had suffered an early hack under the care of a previous developer in February. Though no funds were stolen in this attack, the incident did result in a leadership change, with Crypto taking the role of lead developer for the site.

Illicit markets targeted

The setback is the latest for the deep web’s illicit online marketplaces, which have been the target of a number of attacks so far this year.

Silk Road 2.0 suffered a significant hack in February during which it lost more than $2.6m in bitcoin in what was perhaps the community’s most high-profile attack.

In his remarks, Crypto moved to separate his actions from those that were taken by Silk Road 2.0 at the time, noting that he would not blame “transaction malleability” for the issue and that he now sympathizes with the situation that the site’s lead developer Defcon faced at the time.

Silk Road 2.0, however, has since been able to rebound from the event, revealing in late May that more than 80% of the customer funds stolen in the attack had been repaid.

Egypt feminist defecates on IS flag in the nude

Graphic content: Aliaa Magda Elmahdy posts photo to Facebook; Arab media avoid publishing since words ‘there is no God but Allah’ are printed on banner

As originally posted on: The Times of Israel
August 24, 2014


A well known Egyptian social activist and blogger posted a photo to Facebook Saturday of herself and another unidentified women defecating and menstruating on an Islamic State flag while in the nude, in what appears to be a protest against the Islamist terror group’s recent advances in northern Iraq and Syria.

Aliaa Magda Elmahdy did not specify why she posted the photo, though past controversies, such as a 2011 incident in which she posed in only stockings and red shoes for her blog — to protest against Egypt’s conservative culture — suggest that she was



opposing the Islamic State terror group’s brutally restrictive and misogynistic ideology.

In the image, the 23-year-old feminist is seen facing the camera, while the other woman, dressed in a black hijab, has her back towards the viewer. Two presumably plastic machine guns are in the background, and the veiled woman is holding up her middle finger. The letters IS are inscribed on Elmahdy’s stomach and on the second woman’s bottom.

Arab media across the Middle East avoided publishing the photo, since the words “there is no God but Allah” are printed on the desecrated flag, Army Radio reported.

Elmahdy said in the past that her photos “scream against a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment and hypocrisy.” However, she has been criticized for her endeavors not only by hard-line Muslims in her home country, but by liberal, secular leaning individuals as well.

“This hurts the entire secular current in front of those calling themselves the people of virtue,” Sayyed el-Qimni, a prominent secularist, said of the 2011 image, in an apparent reference to Salafi extremists, AP reported at the time.

Elmahdy did not respond to the criticisms, but continued to be active in the struggle to achieve equal rights for women in Egypt.

Anbar tribes declare war on ISIL

As originally posted on: Al-Shorfa
August 22, 2014


The Anbar tribal council on Friday (August 22nd) announced the start of an "armed tribal revolution" against the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL).

"A number of Anbar tribes announced Thursday evening in the city of al-Karma the start of their revolution against ISIL after the terrorist organisation shelled al-Lahib, al-Musalaha and al-Qaraghul villages with mortars because their residents refused to swear allegiance to [Abu Bakr] al-Baghdadi," said Anbar provincial council chairman Sabah al-Karhout.

Reports from al-Karma confirm that 30 ISIL elements have been killed, including Abu Thabet al-Jumaili, a leader of ISIL in the town, al-Karhout said.

"The tribes are still engaged in battles against ISIL, and we are now seeking to co-ordinate with the army forces," he said.

Fallujah tribes form brigade to fight ISIL

As originally posted on: Al-Shorfa
August 20, 2014


Fallujah has formed its first armed brigade of tribesmen to fight the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) and provide assistance to the Iraqi forces, Fallujah tribal council chief Hameed al-Issawi said Wednesday (August 20th).

"The new brigade, called Fallujah Free Men, will carry out operations against ISIL elements who have been controlling the city and booby trapping its periphery with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and landmines for months," al-Issawi told Al-Shorfa.

Dozens of tribesmen have joined the brigade, formed along the lines of the new Mosul Liberation Force, and they are currently mobilising public opinion against ISIL, he added.

Tribesmen will work on weakening ISIL from within by carrying out operations against its leaders and opening channels of communications with the Iraqi forces, he said.

"The success of past efforts to form a tribal brigade in villages around the town has encouraged us to repeat the experience in Fallujah," he added.

Islamic State militants behead missing American journalist

RT
August 19, 2014


Islamic State militants have released a graphic video allegedly depicting the beheading of American photojournalist James Wright Foley, who has been missing since 2012 after being kidnapped in Syria.

Foley went missing almost two years ago while covering the conflict in Syria as a freelance photographer. The 39-year-old reporter was working for Agence France-Presse when he disappeared, and his whereabouts were essentially unknown until this recording surfaced.

His November 22nd disappearance was classified as a kidnapping by the FBI, which stated he “was taken by an organized gang after departing from an internet café in Binesh, Syria.”

The Islamist group also threatened to kill another American journalist, Steven Joel Sotloff of World Affairs and Time, stating his fate is in the hands of President Barack Obama.





In the new video, the militants proclaimed the violent act as “a message to America” for its decision to launch airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq, where it has made rapid territorial conquests over the last few months.

After stating that President Obama’s decision to authorize military action against the extremist group “effectively [placed] America upon a slippery slope towards a new war front against Muslims,” Foley appears kneeling beside a masked man. He is forced to read a letter which blames the US government for “hammering the final nail into his coffin” before the masked man takes his life.

The family of James Foley confirmed the journalist’s death on a webpage that had been devoted to securing his release. His mother, Diane Foley, said in a statement that her son "gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people."

Sotloff’s life “depends on Obama’s next decision,” the group claimed. Sotloff has been missing since mid-2013, and his Twitter account indicates his last known location was Libya.

Speaking anonymously to the Associated Press, three US officials said the video looked authentic, with two saying the victim was indeed Foley. President Obama is expected to comment on the matter on Wednesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, the US National Security Council confirmed it had seen the video, but added that it's still working to determine its authenticity.

"If genuine, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends," NSC spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said.

The video’s release comes just one day after militants declared they would attack American targets “in any place” if American airstrikes kill any of their members. Militants said, “we will drown all of you in blood” and flashed images of an American was beheading during the United States’ initial invasion of Iraq.

So far, the Islamic State’s campaign through Iraq has seen numerous reports of beheadings, including those carried out against child victims. The group has regularly threatened Christians and other minorities to either convert to their radical take on Islam or die, and even forced tens of thousands of ethnic Yazidis to flee to Sinjar Mountain with no food or water in order to escape being executed.

The last event triggered renewed military and humanitarian action by the United States earlier this month, and airstrikes have been used to help Kurdish security forces beat back militant fighters from northern Iraq. On Monday, Obama announced Iraqi and Kurdish forces had retaken control of the Mosul Dam – Iraq’s largest, and a key strategic landmark – marking the most significant victory for Iraqi troops since the US became involved again.

Liverpool takeaway owner joins fight against Isis in Iraq

Mohammed Abudullah is among the British Kurds compelled to go back to Iraq to take up arms

As originally posted: Liverpool Echo
August 18, 2014


A takeaway manager from Liverpool is among the British Kurds who have returned to their homeland to fight Isis fundamentalists in Iraq.

Mohammed Abudullah who normally runs a takeaway food store is helping the Peshmerga forces battle the Isis (Islamic State) gunmen accused of several recents atrocities.

Interviewed by Sky News alongside a military tank, the fast food retailer said he felt just as much at ease handling a Kalashnikov rifle as he does running a shop.

Mr Abudullah said: “Actually, I’ve got a British passport, I’ve got everything, I’ve got a life there, I don’t need anything but I’m here just for Kurdistan, for Kurdish people, for my family. I don’t care if I get killed or not.”

Mr Abudullah and his friends took film footage of the battle with Isis in Jalula, northern Iraq. At one stage the Peshmerga are pinned down in a doorway while shots ring out outside. In other footage, the Peshmerga are fighting to keep Isis out of the courtyard of a mobile phone tower.

Mr Abudullah looks uncomfortable as the Peshmerga risk being overwhelmed by much more experienced, much better armed, Isis opponents.

Mr Abudullah said: “My friends have been killed next to me. If people were killed next to you, you are going to be happy? No.

“That’s why I feel I need to fight here. I’ll fight here until I’m going to die.

“I don’t mind. Just my people, are going to be free.”

Mr Abudullah is not alone in feeling compelled to join the battle.

Leeds man Saman Baqu also came from the UK to join the fight. He has lived in Leeds for 12 years but felt drawn to Iraq after seeing Isis come to kill men, women and children.

He said because of that he could not stay away and was prepared to take up arms to help the Peshmerga.
