U.S. airline flights land in Atlanta after bomb threats
Bomb threats against two U.S. airline flights on Saturday prompted North American air defense fighter planes to scramble to accompany them to their destination in Atlanta, an airport spokesman said. The planes landed safely at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, no bombs were found aboard either and the Atlanta airport has returned to normal operations, said airport spokesman Reese McCranie. Threats against Delta Air Lines flight 1156, coming from Portland, Oregon, and Southwest Airlines flight 2492, from Milwaukee, had been deemed credible, McCranie said. Several media outlets reported that a Twitter user going by the name Zortic wrote of planting bombs on the two planes, stating in a message to a Delta Twitter account,"I have a bomb on one of your planes, but I forgot which one when I left the airport.

‘Blunt tool’ approach is leading parents into false sense of security, insist campaigners The adult content filters being rolled out by some internet providers under a scheme championed by David Cameron are blocking the websites of businesses and charities and are a “distraction” for parents seeking to protect children from online pornography, claim campaigners.

Group says 'American Sniper' film spurs threats against Muslims
By Mark Guarino CHICAGO (Reuters) - An Arab-American civil rights organization has asked "American Sniper" director Clint Eastwood and actor Bradley Cooper to denounce hateful language directed at U.S. Arabs and Muslims after the release of the Hollywood duo's film about a Navy marksman. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) said in a letter to Eastwood and Cooper that its members had become targets of "violent threats" since early last week, days before "American Sniper" went into general release. The ADC said it was working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and police to assess the threats. The film tells the story of Chris Kyle, a Navy SEAL who was a sniper in Iraq.

China tightens Internet control by blocking VPN services
China is clamping down on unrestricted access to the Internet by blocking services that allow users to get around government censorship. Several foreign-based operators of virtual private network (VPN) services said Friday that access to their services in China had been disrupted as a result of the crackdown and users are facing a harder time getting to some foreign websites. Virtual private ...
California teacher suspended over social media rant about sex case
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A Los Angeles area high school teacher has been suspended over a social media rant in which he said male students who reportedly had sex with two of his female colleagues should have kept their "stupid mouths shut" about the experience, a school official said on Friday. Sean Patrick Kane, an art teacher at South Hills High School in suburban West Covina, asked in a flippant post on Facebook on Sunday what had been "in the heads of the dudes who banged these ladies and then squealed?" "You should have just kept your stupid mouths shut and enjoyed it," Kane said in the same post, referring to the teenage students at the center of the sex case. The rant got the attention of officials at the West Covina Unified School District, who placed Kane on paid leave on Wednesday as they investigate his actions, district spokeswoman Michelle Van Der Linden said. "We expect teachers to maintain a level of professionalism in their classroom and in their social media presence as well," Van Der Linden said.
Soccer-County block Hungary on Facebook after flood of posts
League One (third tier) team Notts County have blocked Hungary from their Facebook page after it was swamped by a flood of comments about new striker Balint Bajner. The club signed the 24-year-old Hungarian on Tuesday from second tier side Ipswich Town whose own page was inundated with "No Bajner, no party!" posts when he was dropped in August. County's page received more than 1,700 new likes in two days after the under-19 international joined the world's oldest professional football club on a free transfer. The Magpies said all the messages posted by Bajner's Hungarian fans were in good fun but the club had to take action to control them on behalf of other users of the page.

Apollo to pay more on Presidio amid reputational, credit questions
By Lisa Lee, Mike Stone and Mariana Santibanez NEW YORK (Reuters) - (This story filed on January 22, 2015 has been refiled to clarify proposed creditor terms of the Caesars bankruptcy and related quotation) The term debt financing backing Apollo Global Management LLC's [APOLO.UL] buyout of information technology services provider Presidio Inc is facing pushback from loan investors wary of an unpopular sponsor, the deal's high leverage and issues related to the credit itself. To entice investors wary of Presidio's lack of hard assets, high leverage and business model, lead arranger Credit Suisse this week made some adjustments to the credit, sources said. Buyer Apollo may also be paying a price for its involvement in restructuring Caesars Entertainment Co, at a time when debt and bondholders stand to face losses on roughly $18 billion of debt.
Davos bosses fret over threats to Internet free trade
The issue is a hot topic at this year's World Economic Forum in Davos, and the forum is seeking to provide a platform for debate over ways to maintain an open, cross-border Web in the face of pressures for national regulation. Quite frankly, there is a temptation,” said Vittorio Colao, chief executive of mobile telecoms group Vodafone, who pointed to different regulatory regimes as an impediment to network traffic. A 2014 report by the Boston Consulting Group estimated the Internet economy will be worth $4.2 trillion in the major Group of 20 (G20) economies by 2016 and, if it were a country, it would rank among the top five in the world, ahead of Germany.
By Tim Cocks LAGOS (Reuters) - In Nigeria, one of the world's worst countries for kidnapping, getting in the wrong cab could end up costing you or your family a lot more than the agreed taxi fare. Many people have a "taxi guy" whom they trust to avoid this risk. It was a clear gap in the market for Easy Taxi, which like Silicon Valley's Uber uses a smartphone app and GPS technology to provide taxi services by linking up customers with a trusted driver who is nearby. In Nigeria, Easy Taxi only recruits existing taxis, but ones that are carefully vetted with all their documents in order.
Amazon, e-commerce rivals fuel commercial property boom in India
By Aditi Shah NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Internet retailer Amazon and its fast-growing local rivals are driving a boom in commercial property leasing in India as their storage needs rise, with shoppers in the country going online to buy everything from televisions to groceries. Other estimates indicate office rents in India's tech hub Bengaluru could rise by as much as a fifth in the next six to nine months as e-commerce companies add to demand. The result, say developers and analysts, is a speedier than expected recovery for India's commercial property sector, badly dented by two successive years of sub-5 percent economic growth. "The best has yet to come for the sector and that will have a snowball effect on the property sector with increased appetite for office space, logistics and warehouse," said Sigrid Zialcita, managing director, research for Asia Pacific at consultant Cushman & Wakefield.

In China, VPN internet access tools suffer further disruptions
Internet services that allow people to freely access blocked websites and apps from within China have seen more severe disruptions this week, said three providers, moves that Chinese state media said were justified. The services affected include popular Virtual Private Network (VPN) providers Astrill, StrongVPN and Golden Frog, which are engaged in a technological arms race to one-up China's highly sophisticated Great Firewall internet censorship system. "This week's attack on VPNs that affected us and other VPN providers is more sophisticated than what we've seen in the past," said Sunday Yokubaitis, president of Golden Frog.
