What do Obamacare and phone sex have in common? Answer: “intimate connections.”

By dialing  1-800-382-5968  — a number that differs from Obamacare’s line by just two digits — you can reach “our nation’s little secret … intimate connections.”

An obliging voice gives you the option to press two to hear the phone number that President Obama read out during his press conference on the woes of healthcare.gov.

Press three, and the phone sex service transfers you to the government line. (Option 1, naturally, asks for your personal preferences and a credit card number to verify your age.)

Yahoo! Answers has featured multiple questions about the “Obamacre sex hotline” (sic), but the threads have been deleted.

It’s not clear if civic-mindedness alone accounts for the “intimate connections” redirect to the health insurance exchange call center.

“[I]t stands to reason that a legitimate company would only provide option ‘2’ in order to get the caller off the line,” a retired cyber security expert who told the Washington Examiner of the phone line said, given the cost of paying for enrollment phone calls.

An entity that transferred callers to the health insurance marketplace phone line would have the opportunity to execute a “man in the middle attack,” according to the expert, who explained that the identity thief who transfers a caller to a legitimate phone line has the ability to record the phone call and thus capture the private information provided by the caller.

“This is a popular method used by identity thieves because it is virtually impossible to detect while it is happening because the caller reaches the correct destination,” the expert, who asked not to be identified, said.

“Also, individuals who become a victim of identity thief or other phone or email scams will never suspect that the call to Obamacare was the source of their lost identity, thus the squatters rarely get caught.”

The confusion is made possible by the fact that Health and Human Services officials, perhaps because they expected the exchange websites to function properly, didn’t come up with a catchy phone number for Obamacare.

While the phone number for Medicare phone number is  1-800-MEDICARE , for instance, President Obama had to send people to  1-800-318-2596  — a number that comes perilously close to spelling “f*** you.”

“Intimate Connections” is more brand-conscious, though, so the phone sex number spells exactly that.

3 Gentlemen, Took only 3 Days to Build a Better Obamacare Website

GTY HealthSherpa lpl 11113 16x9 608 3 Guys, 3 Days to Build a Better Obamacare Website

By ABC NEWS

Three twenty-something programmer dudes did something in three days that 55 U.S. government contractors couldn’t do in more than 2 years: Build a workable healthcare.gov website.

HealthSherpa lets users quickly shop for health insurance plans by ZIP code, and calculates their federal tax subsidy eligibility. Unlike the federal and state exchange websites, the site does not force users to go through a lengthy sign up and application process to get their information. Instead, users can find what they need by clicking through a few clean, Google-like screens.

Nig Liang said he created the site with his friends George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser, working part time in about three days. Their goal, he said, was to make Obamacare benefits easily understandable to consumers.  Beyond hosting fees, the site cost next to nothing to build and maintain.

Unlike everyone else though, Liang said the HealthSherpa team does not wish to disparage the government’s efforts.

“They did the hard part like pulling all the data together and coordinating all the state exchanges,” he explained. “All we did was put a better face on what they’ve already done.”

Liang, who met Kalogeropoulos and Wasser through a community of programmers, also said that the government’s project had a lot of competing aspects, which could explain why the user interface got the short shrift.

He admitted HealthSherpa isn’t perfect either. It doesn’t calculate things like co-pays, maximum out-of-pocket expenses or deductibles.  But Liang said those should be added by the end of the week.

The site has its share of minor glitches too, like not returning any info for certain ZIP codes. Liang said the threesome is focusing on fixing the errors.

“Every time someone sends us a comment we correct it as fast as we can,” Liang said. “We’re working around the clock to get things right.”

So far, no one from healthcare.gov has reached out to ask the trio for advice. Liang said. But the site, which went up last week, has already racked up more than 1,500 mostly satisfied customers.

 

 

 

Florida Teacher Suspended For Forcing 4th-Grade Jehovah’s Witness To Recite Pledge Of Allegiance

November 6, 2013 | Filed under: News Behaving Badly,Top Stories | Posted by: Cheston Catalano

herPledge

One fourth-grader stood in silence as the rest of the class recited the Pledge at Explorer K-8 school in Spring Hill, FL.

A Jehovah’s Witness forbidden from worshiping objects, the boy’s behavior was not unusual. He had never joined his peers in the ritual of placing his right hand on his heart. He had never spoken the words: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands . . .”

But that morning was different.

As the students recited, teacher Anne Daigle-McDonald took the boy’s wrist and placed his hand over his heart. He protested, pulling his arm down and reminding her he was a Jehovah’s Witness.

“You are an American, and you are supposed to salute the flag,” Daigle-McDonald said, according to a statement the boy gave to a school administrator.

The teacher did the same thing the next day, and then addressed the class:

“In my classroom, everyone will do the pledge; no religion says that you can’t do the pledge,” several students told a school administrator, according to a report. “If you can’t put your hand on your heart, then you need to move out of the country.”

Warning: Devastating Windows Virus Spreading

ShareThis Pinterest
It seems like hackers are always plotting new ways to steal your information and money. In fact, there’s a dangerous new virus going around that can hijack your computer and wipe out all your files.

It’s called the CryptoLocker virus, and it’s spreading like wildfire.

The virus is disguised in an email that looks like it’s from a legitimate business like FedEx or UPS. Because the email sounds and looks like the real thing, it’s easy to become a victim.

If you get the virus, hackers will threaten to destroy all your files – unless you pay up fast.

Don’t let hackers steal your files and your money. I’ll show you how to keep this nasty virus off your computer – and what to do if you become infected.

First, let me explain exactly how the CryptoLocker virus works.

As I mentioned, the virus is delivered in a legitimate-looking email from a company like UPS or FedEx. The message will have an attachment that’s a JPEG, PDF or other common file extension. However, it might contain a malicious link instead.

If you download and open the attachment, or click on the link, a CryptoLocker installs on your computer. A message pops up demanding $100 or more to keep the virus from destroying everything on your hard drive.

Cain on Huntsman Pay Back

http://www.caintv.com/CainonHuntsman-2891

After getting a tip from a donor, Huntsman’s researchers had dug into Cain’s past, discovered the first two sexual harassment claims, and fed the story to Politico. Not that Cain was seen by Team Huntsman as a particular barrier to their man. But the Utahan’s people were increasingly desperate, looking for any opportunity to upend the prevailing dynamic.”

Back in the day, Cain’s campaign had accused Texas Gov. Rick Perry of spreading the info that ultimately forced the former pizza executive from McDonough out of the contest.

Cain discussed the matter this morning on AM750/FM95.5 NewsTalk WSB, crowing just a bit at Huntsman’s dismal showing in the race:

“I still continue to vehemently deny the claims and in the upcoming commentary on HermanCain.com I will detail some of the information and the facts that show these claims were in fact false. … 

“Jon Huntsman said I should drop out of the race. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that after the P5 [straw poll] vote in Florida is when my campaign took off and I moved to the top of the polls. By the way it is a fact, it is a fact that in that P5 vote in Florida that really energized the Herman Cain campaign, Jon Huntsman came in dead last and Herman Cain came in first place by a long shot. That is a fact.”

Not quite. Cain did in fact win and Huntsman did do poorly, but according to a tally of the straw poll published by the Tampa Bay Times, Michele Bachmann finished last.

Could Obama be a Sociolpath,You be the Judge

Obama the SOCIOPATHEdited by Carolyn Barratt, ZacharyBurton, Harri, Laura and 8 others

Sociopathy is a type of anti-social personality disorder, a condition that prevents people from adapting the ethical and behavioral standards of his or her community.[1] Sociopathic individuals can be dangerous, exhibiting criminal behavior, organizing dangerous cults, and causing harm to themselves and others. If you think that you know somebody who suffers from this disorder, read this article to learn how to determine whether your instincts are correct.

Warning: Only a licensed professional has the authority to officially diagnose an individual with sociopathy. If you believe that you or somebody you know suffers from sociopathy, seek clinical help in order to receive proper treatment.

EditPart 1 of 2: Identifying Telltale Signs

The following are traits that are characteristic to sociopaths. Remember that most people exhibit at least some of these personality traits to some degree. The key is to look for extreme and repetitive instances of these traits.

1
Consider the individual’s personality and mannerisms. Sociopaths are usually extremely charming and charismatic.[2] Their personalities are described as magnetic, and as such, they generate a lot of attention and praise from others. They also tend to have a strong sexual energy, and may have strange sexual fetishes or be sex addicts.[3]
Sociopaths are great orators. They usually use poetic language and are able to carry on long monologues or stories that are hypnotic and capture the attention of those around them.[4]
Sociopaths have delusions of grandeur, and oftentimes feel overly entitled to certain positions, people, and things. They believe that their own beliefs and opinions are the absolute authority, and disregard the opinions of others.
Sociopaths are rarely shy, insecure, or at a loss for words. They have trouble suppressing emotional responses like anger, impatience, or annoyance, and constantly lash out at others and respond hastily to these emotions.[5]
2
Take the person’s past and present behavior into account. Sociopaths exhibit abnormally spontaneous and daring behavior.[6] They seem to act outside of the realm of social norms, and may do bizarre, risky, or outrageous things without assessing the potential repercussions.
Sociopaths can be criminals. They may be con artists, kleptomaniacs, or even murderers. Most sociopaths are not violent criminals, however.
Sociopaths are professional liars. They fabricate stories and make outlandish, untruthful statements, but are able to make these lies sound convincing with their confidence and assertiveness.[7]
3
Consider the person’s relationship with others. Because sociopaths are such dominant leaders, they are usually able to attract a following of some kind. These people tend to be weaker, more passive individuals who have been intoxicated by the sociopath’s charm.
Sociopaths are incapable of experiencing guilt or shame for their actions.[8] They rarely apologize for their behavior, and are unaware of the emotional, physical, and financial repercussions of their actions. As a result, they betray, threaten, and harm those around them without feeling any type of remorse.
Sociopaths are manipulative. They constantly try to influence and dominate the people around them, and tend to seek positions of leadership.
Sociopaths are incapable of experiencing love, and likely will not have had healthy romantic relationships in the past.[9] They are only concerned with their own interests, and use compassion as a tool to manipulate others, but are not genuinely compassionate.

EditPart 2 of 2: Coping With a Sociopath

1
Maintain a safe distance from the person. If the sociopath you are dealing with is not a family member or other loved one who you feel responsible for, then it’s best to disengage with the person to avoid the potential negative impact that he or she can have on your life.
Stop contacting the person, and avoid situations/places where you may run into the person, if possible.
Let the person know that you need some space, and request that he/she refrain from contacting you.
If the person does not cooperate and refuses to leave you alone, then you may want to consider changing your telephone number and other contact information. If he or she proceeds to stalk you, then consider filing for a restraining order.
2
Consider the various treatment options. There is no one cure for sociopathy, but it can be treated with medications, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and/or Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), among other treatments.[10]
3
Confront the person with caution. Before you confront a sociopath about his or her disorder, remember that sociopaths are by nature defensive, irritable, and potentially violent. Ask for help from friends or family members and organize an intervention to prevent the likelihood of a hostile reaction.
Avoid making accusatory statements or pointing out specific things that the person has done wrong. Rather, focus on the bigger picture and let the person know that you are genuinely concerned for his or her health.
4
Consider getting a court order. If the person you are dealing with is extremely violent or uncooperative, you may want to consider requesting a court order to force the person into accepting treatment.
