The North Shore District Court should rule on Friday ordered the release of that suspect.
New Zealand Judge David McNaughton stressed that took into account the concerns of U.S. officials regarding the request for the release of the chief programmer Megaupload, Bram van der Kolk.

The court denied bail to the founder of the site, considering that Kim Schmitz could flee the country, although it had been confiscated his passport and credit cards.
The New Zealand justice is also assessing the request for extradition to the United States Schmitz - a complex decision because the main suspect in this case was born in Germany, also has Finnish citizenship and residence in New Zealand and Hong Kong.

I just read it a few days ago but i've found that its a bit older than i expected and the photo that was on the news was the one above but i found another info. What do you think?!
One of the most popular Doberman photographs on the web is that of the fireman being licked by a Doberman. The photo really is memorable and it’s easy to see why it’s so popular. Now like some things circulating on the internet, the story is not all factual. Thanks to the Snopes website we have the real story behind this photo. (Snopes investigates rumours and urban legends to get the real facts.)
Although the photo is real, the details have been altered a bit. The photo was taken during a house fire in 1999 and shows fireman Jeff Clark being licked by a pregnant, red Doberman named “Cinnamon”. The photo description has people believe that Cinnamon was thanking the firefighter for carrying her out the burning house, saving her life.
What in fact occurred at the time, during the fire there was already one dog outside in the yard and another one ran out of the house on it’s own. At the moment that the firefighter knelt down and removed his mask, Cinnamon walked over and licked him at the most opportune timing for photographer Patrick Schneider. A little bit of heart-warming history preserved forever.
Jeff Clark works for the Charlotte Fire Department. Pregnant, Cinnamon did give birth to five puppies and eventually passed away in 2005. Thanks Cinnamon and Jeff for this warm fuzzy moment, and Patrick for the great shot.

The lack of common sense forced the conductor of the New York Philharmonic interrupted on Thursday evening, a concert hall in New York, the concert was to drive until an iPhone to stop playing.
The orchestra was in the final of 9. Th symphony of Gustav Mahler, when in the first row of an audience which sat about 2700 people, a mobile phone begins to ring with a ring called "marimba," one of those who have installed the iPhone. As the phone kept ringing, the conductor decided to land the baton, stop the concert and back to back claims that the phone was off.
According to Alan Gilbert later told NBC, the sound of the phone was "more than annoying, it was destructive." It was the first time Gilbert stopped a concert. "It's shocking when you do that, simply because we are not waiting for the flow of music would be interrupted. So I said, 'I know it's embarrassing. To turn it off will have to admit that it's your phone. Do this so we can return to music. '"
There are reports of other mobile phones that soared over the orchestra's concerts, but they are usually turned off by protests from some viewers.
I know this is a bit "old" but i remembered it and thought on sharing with you and with it a video of the orchestra for those who never heard it. It's not my style but its important to keep a open mind inf life, therefore to all kind of music.
"Excessive" internet has the same effects in the brain that the consumption of drugs and alcohol.
The conclusion is the result of a study by Chinese scientists monitored the brain activity of 35 people. The changes that occur in the brain are identical. Of the 35 men and women studied, 17 reported being addicted to the Internet. The cases of addiction had differences in white matter , the part of the brain's nerve fibers in relation to non-addicts: changes are similar to cases of people who have drug or alcohol addiction .
The results were obtained by MRI that revealed changes in parts of the brain related to emotions and self-control . "The results also indicate that Internet addiction may share neurological and psychological mechanisms with other types of addictions and disorders of impulse control," said study leader Hao Law, Academy of Sciences of China.
The study was funded by the Natural Science Foundation of China and opens a new chapter in studies of effects between consumption and changes in internet users. Although the sample is relatively small , the results have some scientific validation and may be the step to study a broader spectrum.
That being said, what do you think?!
