The grave threat to Arbil, seat of the regional government and a hub for foreign firms in Iraq, appears to have at least temporarily eased a long-running feud between leaders of the Kurdistan region, who have long dreamed of an independent state, and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, a Shi'ite Arab who has sparred with Kurds over land and oil.As Islamic State fighters made another dramatic advance earlier this week, Maliki ordered his air force for the first time to back Kurdish forces in their fight against militants.The delivery of ammunition on Friday is sure to be welcome for Kurdish officials who for weeks have complained the Peshmerga, whose name means "those who face death," were overstretched and underequipped against the Islamist fighters, who have weapons seized from Iraqi army bases.Both steps are significant in a country where in recent years Peshmerga and Iraqi forces under the command of Baghdad have been much closer to fighting each another than to cooperating.
The Second Section
The Obama administration is now working with the Iraqi government, the official said, to ensure additional requests from the Kurdistan Regional Government, for small arms and munitions including mortars and AK-47s, will be met soon."We're still coordinating with the government of Iraq to help fill the needs as quickly as possible," the official said.While the shipment delivered on Friday came from existing Iraqi government stockpiles, the U.S. official said, it was not clear whether additional arms that Baghdad may provide to Kurdistan would come from Iraq's existing arsenal or would come from the United States via Baghdad.The Obama administration has been reluctant to directly provide weapons to Iraqi Kurds because it would set a precedent for circumventing an allied government and would raise objections from Baghdad.But the recent Islamic State advance has revealed worrying vulnerabilities of the Kurdish force. After many Iraqi soldiers abandoned their posts in the face of the initial Islamic State onslaught, the Peshmerga appeared much more battle-ready. But the Peshmerga too have been routed in the past week.

But Messenger’s user agreement terms for Android-run devices were seen by many as increasingly invasive and yet another way Facebook was making privacy rights irrelevant. Some of the questionable terms include permitting the app to make calls without the user’s knowledge, take pictures, and record audio and video at any time. The app also reserves the right to scroll through users’ contacts and call logs, as well as glean personal information stored on the mobile devices including data stored in other apps.
Moreover, Facebook and other tech companies have been under pressure to tighten their privacy policies domestically and abroad in the wake of former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden’s document leaks in 2013. Facebook is currently dueling with European lawmakers, and awaiting a European Union court to rule whether the company broke privacy laws when it gave the NSA access to German citizens’ profiles.
Today is the best day I've had
Backlash against the app’s terms is just the latest privacy controversy Facebook has had to manage. The social network admitted in June that it performed psychological experiments on users by manipulating their timelines. News of the experiments, which tried to alter users’ moods based on what they read, incited public furor over the company’s continuous push of privacy boundaries.TODD

Own, Share, Use... YOUR News
Your one stop shop for all your news and info needs. We aren't trying to make a mint off of ads we strive to present hard-hitting, thoughtful commentary that informs.
What do you think is the biggest challenge for online news outlets?
I feel that with so many conglomerates using ad power to influence purchase decisions, online outlets need to go above and beyond on every story. Rather than linking to stories, refer to them and attempt to contact any persons of interest to add more to the story. The more in-depth every story is the more valuable it is.
What makes AutoZINEs different from other news sites?
There are a lot of things that set AutoZINEs apart. For Providers, we don't use static html pages so you don't have to worry about complex file systems or continually growing folders. For Consumers, we format our news so that you aren't bombarded with 50 stories in as small an area as possible and we don't design for ads so dancing paper clips don't interrupt your information gathering.
What about cost?
OK, but what about independent sites with 100s of 1000s of users?
Well, when we started out, we wanted to figure out how to efficiently and securely use a database to store articles, polls surveys and interactive comments, etc. Our system uses a hybrid MVC mechanism in C# and jQuery to speed up multiple calls so that larger sites serve less data per call. And it's all 100% asynchronous and 100% secure. By limiting data transferred and serving templated pages, requests respond the same whether you have 100 or 1,000,00 users. We also incorporate the ability to use server farms so you can be assured your growth won't be slowed.
