TED Talks: Mikko Hypponen: How the NSA betrayed the world's trust -- time to act

Recent events have highlighted, underlined and bolded the fact that the United States is performing blanket surveillance on any foreigner whose data passes through an American entity -- whether they are suspected of wrongdoing or not. This means that, essentially, every international user of the internet is being watched, says Mikko Hypponen. An important rant, wrapped with a plea: to find alternative solutions to using American companies for the world's information needs.

Life After Fat Focuses on Body Image, 20-Somethings, Now on Indiegogo

Life After Fat, a new web series created by Julia Pugachevsky and directed by Jason Hood, introduces viewers to Maddie (Tamara Shephard), a 24-year old thrift store employee getting used a huge change in her life: losing 90 lbs over the course of the past year. For the first time in her life, Maddie is seen as "attractive", which brings a side of herself unfamiliar to her, and brings her into new situations and problems in her life. 

While the series has only released a pilot episode and is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to produce nine more episodes, Pugachevsky hopes explore "what self-esteem really is — if it’s a piece of you that one day clicks into place or if it’s an amorphous force that is constantly shifting — and if we can ever truly be happy with ourselves in either scenario."

You can learn more about the series by visiting the Life After Fat website at www.lifeafterfatseries.com. You can also follow the show on Facebook or Twitter (@LifeAfterFat). Finally, you can check out and contribute to their Indiegogo campaign at http://igg.me/at/lifeafterfat.

A U.S. drone strike killed three people in northwest Pakistan earlier today, marking the first such attack since Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif publicly called for President Obama to end the strikes. Just last week, Amnesty International said the United States may be committing war crimes by killing innocent Pakistani civilians in drone strikes.

The film looks at the impact of U.S. drone strikes through more than 70 interviews with attack survivors in Pakistan, a former U.S. drone operator, military officials, and more. The film opens with the story of a 16-year-old Tariq Aziz who was killed by drone. just days after attending an anti-drone conference in Islamabad. We are also joined by human rights attorney Jennifer Gibson of Reprieve, co-author of the report, "Living Under Drones."
