Another Day, Another Liar ::: Last week I re-told the story of Liane Membis, the wayward reporter for great metropolitan newspapers and websites, who turned out to be a mediocre writer of fiction. I did a little detective work with assistance from UK Liberette and found Membis helped herself to the name "Liberette" and used it to create her own website (that's like you or me suddenly putting up "" - we'd be sued to death in 5 minutes flat!)
"She [Dawn Yang] also claims to be Dutch&Japanese at first but now claim to be more dutch/Thai. Its just a cover story. Stomp forum has confirmed that Dawn Yang had used her 'mixed' heritage in an attempt to secure a Pond Commercial contract but the fact is she had surgery." ~ Jeshika Doll
Now, someone who has been around making waves on the internet for several years is back in the news: I've always thought Dawn Yang (aka Dawn Yeo, Dawn Wayang), her ClapBangKiss Xanga blog, and her whole story was borderline sketchy. (They say she COPIED herself in the image of Arissa Luna ::: see and ) . Dawn Yang has made Jeshika Doll's "Most Hypocritical Bloggers" List!

How a Lone Grad Student Scooped the Government and What it Means for Your Online Privacy

Peter Maass, News Investigation: Nearly every day, and often several times a day, there is fresh news of privacy invasions as companies hone their ability to imperceptibly assemble a vast amount of data about anyone with a smartphone, laptop or credit card. Retailers, search engines, social media sites, news organizations — all want to know as much as they can about their visitors and users so that ads can be targeted as precisely as possible.

President Juan Manuel Santos confirmed on Twitter [es] the eruption (of ashes) of Nevado del Ruiz volcano (in western central Colombia), which occurred[es] Saturday June 30 at 17:40 (22:40 UTC). Social media users initially reported apparent calm in Manizales, the closest city to the volcano, where there is a 10 km smoke cloud[es]. Airports at Manizales, Pereira, and Armeniawere closed, as well as some terrestrial roads[es]. Some users criticized the lack of immediate news coverage in audiovisual mainstream media,which paid more attention to the domestic football tournament. On November 13, 1985 an eruption at this volcano destroyed the town of Armero, northern Tolima.

Civil Society Occupies the Rio+20 Earth Summit

Mike Sandmel , News Report: However, of the more than 40,000 civil society representatives in Brazil last week, most had been following the preparatory talks for months with increasing frustration. They’d watched as negotiators bracketed and deleted any and all proposals that might have challenged the global status quo. Some groups had set their sights on smaller but still significant victories like the elimination of fossil fuel subsidies or the creation of a World Environment Organization on equal footing with bodies like the WHO.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
