Court orders Twitter to hand over Occupy Wall Street protester's messages 02 Jul 2012 A New York court is ordering Twitter to hand over a host of user Tweets as they wage into uncharted legal waters while dealing with the arrest of an Occupy Wall Street protester.

Guantanamo brings in Canadian lit prof to 'rehabilitate' Omar Khadr 27 Jun 2012 In an unexpected turn of events this spring, an Edmonton professor, armed with novels and lesson plans, headed to the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay to meet with Canadian convicted 'terrorist' Omar Khadr. In a rare move, the U.S. authorities opened the prison door to King's University professor Arlette Zinck in late April as part of an effort to rehabilitate Khadr. Khadr was chained to the floor during the lessons, which took place in a small interview room with military personnel present, said Zinck. He read Obasan, a fictional story based on the internment of Japanese-Canadians during the Second World War, and he "got to the heart of that story," said Zinck.
