Buffalo as Data Center Mecca

I would not mind moving to Canada if there is an attractive firm. Why not make all data centers automated and move to California?

In western New York, the Buffalo area may be fast becoming a prime location for data centers in America. Having recently hosted the opening of a new Yahoo data center in Lockport, the area is now being considered for a new Verizon data center.

"Insensitivity" Near Ground Zero

One by one, the arguments against the proposed Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero have collapsed. A "13-story mosque"? No such plan. "At Ground Zero"? Wrong again. The imam's radical politics? A myth. His shadowy jihadist financiers? Imagined. His failure to denounce terrorism? Debunked. The "angry battle" he's "stoking"? Please. The guy isn't even returning phone calls. The anger and stoking have come from the other side.</p>

So the mosque's opponents have fallen back on one last argument: sensitivity.

Yanukovych Preps Azarov for Ukrainian (Off-Air Leak)

No need to pretend to be Ukrainian if you can't speak it.



President Yanukovych [informal Russian]: Well, I’ll be addressing you...in the Ukrainian language. [switches to formal Ukrainian] Mykola Yanukovych [name, patronymic], I would like to hear you out...on the current situation — on issues of relevance.
