Rooftop gunman kills two in Finland - BuenosAiresHerald.com

A gunman opened fire from a rooftop in a Finnish town centre in the early today, killing two people and wounding several others, police said.


An 18-year-old man wearing camouflage clothing was arrested after the shooting in Hyvinkaa, a small town 56 km (34 miles) north of the capital Helsinki.

The motive for the shooting was unclear. It followed a series of shooting sprees in Finland in recent years and came less than a year after anti-immigrant gunman Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people in a rampage in neighbouring Norway.

The suspect had no criminal background and police said he likely acted alone.

Thousands of shellfish found dead in Peru

The cause of death is under investigation, said Industry and Fishing Minister Gladys Triveno, warning that "it would be premature to give a reason for this phenomenon."


The Navy said it presented a report on the find to the Agency of Environmental Evaluation and Control to determine the cause.

Biologist Yuri Hooker of Cayetano Heredia University said the species found on Pucusana Beach, 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of Lima, was a type of red krill about three centimeters (1.2 inches) long.

Google to Warn 500,000+ of DNS Changer Infections — Krebs on Security

Google plans today to begin warning Internet users if their computers show telltale signs of being infected with the DNSChanger Trojan. The company estimates that more than 500,000 systems remain infected with the malware, despite a looming deadline that threatens to quarantine the sick computers from the rest of the Internet.
Security experts won court approval last year to seize control of the infrastucture that powered the search-hijacking Trojan in a bid to help users clean up infections. But a court-imposed deadline to power down that infrastructure will sever Internet access for PCs that are not rid of the malware before July 9, 2012.

FCC considers backdoor rule change that could jumpstart the era of internet television | The Verge

The FCC is trying to make a backdoor change to the rules governing television distribution that would put internet TV providers under the same umbrella as traditional cable and satellite providers. The move could saddle internet providers like Hulu and Netflix with new regulatory and fee burdens, but it could also unlock their potential by giving them the right to purchase popular programming from networks — a privilege that's guaranteed for traditional distributors but not online providers.

Monsanto maize banned in France — RT

A genetically modified strain of maize created by the notorious American company Monsanto has been temporarily banned in France “to protect the environment.” This comes at a time of protests against the biotech giant in its homeland.

France’s Agricultural Minister Bruno Le Maire Friday imposed the temporary ban on maize strain MON 810, in what his ministry is calling “a precautionary measure.” However, Monsanto itself said in January that it would not sell genetically modified maize in France, as it considered the market “not ready.”

Google Docs adds 450 new fonts, 60 new templates, and more image importing options: Google fonts






Google just rounded up the improvements made to Google Docs over the last month and announced the addition of 450 new fonts users can add to their collection. When selecting your font in Docs, there's a new menu item to "add fonts"; this brings up a new font management menu that displays all of the many new options that you can add to your default set of fonts. You can also re-arrange and delete fonts from your default set on the right. To help narrow down the many options, users can sort by popularity, alphabetical order, date added, or "trending" — though we're not sure exactly how trending differs from popularity. They're also grouped into four different style categories: handwriting, display, serif, and sans serif. Surprisingly,...
