Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a Pentagon briefing that there has been a “2,000 percent increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours,” following the coordinated military strike against Syria, according to the Christian Emergency Network (christianemergencynetwork.org
In May, 2017 Cyber Command Commander and Director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Mike Rogers, told Congress he was concerned about foreign nations using attacks against critical infrastructures that run the electric grid, financial systems, communications networks, the transportation systems and other key infrastructure systems.

|Google rejects Christian publisher over ‘faith we express’
Posted: 24 Apr 2018 07:00 AM PDT
Concordia Publishing House has been in business since 1869 as the official publishing arm of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod denomination. But apparently, the Christian content of its website, particularly an ad for an upcoming Vacation Bible School, is too much for Google AdWords, the online advertising service. Google, said Concordia CEO Bruce Kintz in a Facebook post-Monday, will no longer
do business “because of the faith we express on our website,” the Federalist reported. Kintz said one of his associates was told by Google AdWords, as an example, that the “Bible Challenge” on the publishers Vacation Bible School Web page “would clearly need to come down before they could consider us for ads.” “Incredibly sobering and disappointing,” Kintz wrote. “It is an uphill battle but our mission and customers are worth it. It is why we are here.” READ MORE

Posted: 23 Apr 2018 02:15 PM PDT
How young is too young when it comes to owning a smartphone? Believe it or not, according to a new study, a quarter of children six and under actually own a mobile device. Researchers with musicMagpie, a company that helps people declutter by selling their unwanted electronics online, conducted the study after they noted a 300% increase year-over-year in customers who were buying first-time phones for their children.
A third of parents made the purchase simply because their kids asked, while one in five bought it to keep the little ones entertained. Though the study didn’t indicate how many parents were surveyed, the results showed that most agreed 11 was the “ideal” age for children to receive their first smartphone. Nonetheless, the stunning findings showed 25% of parents purchased devices for children six and under. What’s worse, nearly half of those kids spent as much as 21 hours per week on the devices.
