Yahoo Scanned Email For U.S. Intelligence

Are you surprised that Yahoo is working with U.S. Intelligence to read your email if you have an account with them??.. I’m not! They are probably reading this as I type or watching through my computer camera.

At this point nothing surprises me but back to the story of Yahoo scanning emails. According to Reuters Yahoo Inc. built custom program last year that allowed them to scan and search all incoming emails of it’s customers apparently looking for emails that contained “National Security Agency or FBI.”

This is the first case that a U.S. internet company worked with central intelligence to search all os it’s customers incoming messages instead of a smaller number of accounts at one time.

I wonder if more companies like Google will agree to this?

The Reason Why You Should Check Your Kids Phone


This news story out of Penn Yan is the prime example of why you should be diligent in checking your child’s phone. Four minors ages 11, 13, 16, and 17  are facing sexting charges.

The charges came about after an investigation of several local young people exchanging nude photos through Facebook Messenger. Authorities seized multiple cell phones, computers, and digital media storage devices form the 16 year old boy.

From the exchange via FB the 13 year old boy is charged as a juvenile disseminating indecent material to a minor. The 17 year old girl also charged as an adult with endangering the welfare of a child. The 11 year old was charged as a juvenile with disseminating indecent material to a minor, and the 16 year old charged as an adult with five counts of second-degree disseminating indecent material to a minor.

If convicted these children will have to deal with these charges for the rest of their life. They may have to register as a sex offender which will definitely hinder future success limiting their career choices.

Parents and guardians even though you many not want to intrude on your kids privacy you might want to rethink that notion. I say it’s better to be safe than sorry and communicate to your child or children how important it is to let you know when or if they ever receive inappropriate photos or texts.
