Air Force Once and other White House typos

The White House has blamed a "clerical error" for a typo in a news release stating that Iran "has" an ongoing nuclear weapons programme.

It should actually have read "had" - in the past tense - administration officials say.

That's a big difference.

In May 2017, as Mr Trump prepared to travel to Israel, the White House released a list of his goals, including to "promote the possibility of lasting peach" in the Middle East.

mmmmm... indeed

That's "your" short-term history you can erase......not "their" long-term history, into which "what you've clicked on" and "(what) website you've visited" has already been analysed, collated, indexed and added to their file about you.

That's what Facebook exists to do. It wants to know every tiniest morsel of detail about you, and your Friends. Facebook/Zuckerberg are not altruistic, it's a commercial enterprise. It acquires, then sells information about you.

Please remember: if a product on the internet is free, you are the product.

National Bank of Greece branch on the seafront closed, ATM still operational. Main branch on Sitemporon remains open. Also a branch in Sami, so I hear.
