Another huge database exposed millions of call logs and SMS text messages

An unprotected server storing millions of call logs and text messages was left open for months before they were found by a security researcher. If you thought you’d heard this story before, you’re not wrong. Back in November, another massive exposed database was leaking text messages — including password resets and two-factor codes — on millions of users. This time around, it’s a different company: Voipo, a Lake Forest, California communications provider, exposed tens of gigabytes worth of custo...

‘Stan and Ollie’ Star John C. Reilly on Vanishing Under Make-Up and Making Hard Comedy Look Easy [Interview]

When /Film last spoke with John C. Reilly, it was for the recent alternative western The Sisters Brothers, in which he co-starred opposite Joaquin Phoenix. At the end of that interview, Reilly did briefly discuss the narrower focus of his current film, the Laurel & Hardy biopic Stan & Ollie, which centers on a months-long tour the comedy team took throughout Great Britain and Ireland, transforming some of the classic bits (and some newly written ones) into live routines for the stage. By all a...

Govt may deny homeschool families custody to teach tolerance: ECHR

Govt may deny homeschool families custody to teach tolerance: ECHR The government has the right to remove children who are homeschooled from their parents’ custody if authorities believe their parents will not teach children “tolerance,” the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled last week. The Wunderlich family had claimed German authorities violated their innate human rights by denying them custody and forcibly enrolling their children in public sch...

Roe steals the show as Killester see off Tralee fightback

It was the Ciaran Roe show as the Killester point guard had a 34 point night to see the Dublin club to the Irish Cup final. Emmet Ryan looks back on a night where the smallest man on the court embiggened his team in the face of a ferocious fightback from the Tralee Warriors It’s about a 1 hour 45 minute drive, with good traffic, from their Kerry home to the Mardyke but, make no mistake, this arena was East Tralee and nobody was surprised. Even before tip in the preceding game, over two hours be...

Adam McKay Details Another ‘Vice’ Deleted Scene Featuring Young Dick Cheney

Vice just hit theaters before the end of 2018, and with awards season in full swing, we’ve got at least two or three months until the movie arrives on home video. But when it does, it will feature a couple of key scenes that didn’t make the final cut. Director Adam McKay has already talked about a certain musical sequence that would have added to the satirical meta nature of the movie, but it turns out Vice almost had a flashback sequence featuring a young Dick Cheney and future wife Lynne Vinc...

On Robin and robin

“Then the Bi-Coloured-Python-Rock-Snake scuffled down from the bank and said: ‘My young friend, if you do not now, immediately and instantly, pull as hard as ever you can, it is my opinion that your acquaintance in the large-pattern leather ulster’(and by this he meant the Crocodile) ‘will jerk you into yonder limpid stream before you can say Jack Robinson’. This is the way Bi-Coloured-Python-Rock-Snakes always talk.” Alas, my students have never read Kipling’s Just So Stories and don’t know how...

Documentary about Moby-Dick devotees

David Shaerf, a professor of English and cinema studies at Michigan's Oakland University, is fanatical about Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. He's so fanatical that he made a documentary about Moby Dick fanaticism. The film is titled "Call Me Ishmael" and in it, Shaerf joins the devotees who gather annually in New Bedford, Massachusetts to read Moby-Dick aloud, without stopping. He interviews the likes of Frank Stella who spent 15 years making a piece of art for each of the book's chapters. He talk...

Gisele, Burt and Miles

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed supermodel Gisele Bundchen for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section on her childhood in Brazi (go here). She talked about growing up with five sisters remai  best friends today. Her parents did something right. Gisele was discovered by a model scout in a Brazilian mall when she was 14. While I had her, I asked Gisele for two Brazilian album recommendations. Here's Tribalistas (2002)... And here's Maria Gadú (2009)... Black...

First Look: Tommy Armour ATOMIC Driver

Add one more to the growing list of 2019 drivers. The 2019 Tommy Armour Atomic has been added to the USGA’s conforming clubs list. It’s reasonable to assume that the Dick’s house brand won’t get the kind of attention in the driver space that Callaway and TaylorMade will over the coming months, but we were pleasantly and repeatedly surprised by the performance of the Tommy Armour brand throughout this year’s Most Wanted testing. Here’s the quick rundown. The TA Impact Series #3 Alignment tied ...

Credit card activity as a predictor of mass shootings

The New York Times has published an investigation into infamous American mass shootings and found that a significant proportion of mass shooters go on credit-card fueled spending sprees prior to their acts of terror, and that these shooters worry (needlessly, as it turns out) that their unusual credit-card spending will be flagged by financial institutions, resulting in their cards being frozen. Even if you don't own one or more guns, the historic, incredible wealth of the NRA tells you som...

'Vice', Dick Cheney, and the Satisfaction of the Deed Itself

None The crucial moment in Vice, Adam McKay's furiously funny mock biopic about the rise of Dick Cheney, doesn't come when, as Vice President just after 9/11, he makes a naked power grab and shifts the country onto a war footing. It's not when he calls his wife Lynne from a cubicle in the Gerald Ford White House and says, "We did it." It happens back in Wyoming in the early '60s. Cheney is going nowhere fast after drinking after another drunk night that saw him tossed in the slammer, Dick—a he...

The Bleeding Edge: a terrifying, enraging look at the corrupt, deadly world of medical implants

Prior to 1976, the FDA did not regulate medical implants, and so shoddy and even deadly devices proliferated, inserted into Americans' body. When the FDA finally decided to regulate implants, they were reluctant to subject the devices already in the field to regulation -- after all, these were already in peoples' bodies. So they enacted rule 501(k), which grandfathered in any devices in the market, and any devices that were "substantially similar" to those devices. This is a loophole that ...
