General Mills: If you “engage” with one of our brands online including ‘like’ us on facebook , or using dowloaded coupons, you “enter a contract with the company, waiving all rights to future lawsuits.”
Food companies are increasingly facing more class-action lawsuits over labeling and ingredients. Last year, General Mills shelled out $8.5 million to settle a suit over how it labeled its Yoplait Yo-Plus yogurt. In 2012, two women sued the company over claims its Nature Valley products were 100% natural, alleging highly processed ingredients were used. That same year, it settled another suit over Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups, agreeing to remove the word “strawberry” from its packaging.
Former BP crisis manager Keith A. Seilhan has settled with the SEC after facing insider trading charges related to the massive 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Seilhan had dumped his company stock before news of the spill’s severity had spread.
According to the federal charges, Seilhan used confidential information on the extent of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to profit, by selling over $1 million in BP company stock right before the stock crashed. He would have lost about $100,000 if he had sold the stock after the price tumbled, CNNMoney reported.
On April 20, 2010, the BP-operated Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, killing 11 workers. Two days later, the rig sank, breaking the seal on the well cap on the ocean floor. As a result, oil gushed from the damaged well for 87 days, ultimately spilling 4.9 million barrels of oil, according to a multi-agency government report released in 2011.

This is probably propaganda, btw. The people in control of Donetsk have denied involvement, so it’s probably the anti-russians that have disseminated these
Contract killers and illegal drug enthusiasts still upset over the Silk Road’s downfall can dry their tears now that a new online black market known as Grams has debuted with the promise of acting as a new, more secure anonymous internet bazaar.
Grams is only available to internet users who subscribe to Tor, a service that allows users to remain anonymous online. Inside that world of anonymity, which is only available via Tor and similar services, is the Dark Web – a vast, shadowy part of the internet that is not indexed on normal search engines.
The Dark Web – also known as the Deep Web and by a variety of other names – was for years home to the Silk Road, a massive market where users could buy or sell drugs, illegal weapons, illegal services, and a variety of other options online. The Silk Road was taken down by the FBI last year, though, with a number of similar sites rushing (but ultimately failing) to replace it.

On 23rd March, after a week of turbulent anti-government protests, Turkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, organized a massive pro-government rally on a new man-made island in Istanbul ahead of local elections this week. As many as a million of Erdogan’s supporters, mostly conservative Turks, gathered on Sunday through appropriated city buses to show support for the Prime Minister, representing a country that is polarized between those wanting a secular western-looking European country and those craving a more Islamic Middle Eastern-looking one.
For today’s Newsweek Rewind, we feature the Exxon Valdez oil spill, which occurred twenty-five years ago, on March 24, 1989. One of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history, Exxon Valdez released over 10.8 million gallons of oil into Prince William Sound, contaminating 1,300 miles of the coastline and killing thousands of birds, eagles, otters, and other native animals. Despite over a billion dollars being spent on cleanup, the region still hasn’t fully recovered, even a quarter of a century later.
The spill was covered extensively in Newsweek’s September 18, 1989 issue, with reporting by Harry Hurt III, Lynda Wright, Pamela Abramson in articles by Jerry Adler and Sharon Begley. The feature What Exxon Leaves Behind paints a grim picture. “Nearly six months after one of its giant tankers spilled millions of gallons of oil into Alaska’s Prince William Sound, Exxon is preparing to end its cleanup operation. It has been a colossal and humbling effort: Exxon has found that what man has defaced not even the world’s largest oil company can repair.”
