Repairing potholes can be a never ending job for road crews.  Police in Jackson, Mississippi have questioned Ron Chane aka the “Pothole Robin Hood” after he admitted to ‘borrowing’ asphalt from the city’s road-repair reserves, to fill potholes plaguing the streets.   The city’s response: The Mayor of Jackson is “supportive (of) people making improvements to the community…(but stealing) the city’s resources without going through the proper legal channels…(not good).” The Pothole Robin Hood’s actions are currently under investigation, though no charges have been filed.  http://newsfeed.time.com/2013/07/15/street-mending-robin-hood-steals-from-city-gives-to-potholes/#ixzz2Z71MFTsK

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina shares private information of hundreds of thousands of its clients to an outside company that helps design its software.  So far the insurance provider has never had a security breach. Some computer experts suggest that the practice is dangerous and recommend the insurer look at ‘scrambling the data’ before sharing it.  http://www.journalnow.com/news/state_region/article_f905d214-ecf3-11e2-a9a3-001a4bcf6878.html
