Overnight Open Thread (4 Mar 2016)

So can you guys detect what's missing in this article? Hacker Guccifer who leaked Bush paintings, racy Powell emails to be extradited to US. Now, maybe it's just me but Bush and Powell are yesterday's news. You would think a figure that is currently in the news, as in running for President, and is very relevant to this story would merit top billing no? Where the hell is the mention of Hillary Clinton? Guccifer is the reason why we even know Clinton had been using private email for government business.

The rise of counter UAS technology. This is a big concern for the military right now.

How pron stars blackmail a ton of married NBA players.

"You would be shocked how many NBA players have been blackmailed in an effort to keep their privacy. My guess is a minimum of 25 percent of NBA players have dealt with blackmail at some point in their career," she continues. "I've heard girls brag about long-term hustles where they have a player paying their rent and expenses just to keep them quiet and out of their family life."

Oh I'm sure this happens in other pro sports too.
