Well folks, the European’s are pissed, and if this keeps up, Snowden might be able to get asylum anywhere in the E.U.
European officials reacted angrily Sunday to a report that the United States had been spying on its European Union allies, saying the claims could threaten talks with Washington on an important trade agreement.
The latest allegations surfaced in the online edition of the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel, which reported that U.S. agencies had monitored the offices of the EU in New York and Washington. Der Spiegel said information about the spying appeared in documents obtained by Edward J. Snowden, the former American intelligence contractor, and seen in part by the magazine.
The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, said in a statement that he was “deeply worried and shocked.”
“If the allegations prove to be true, it would be an extremely serious matter which will have a severe impact on EU-U.S. relations,” he said, adding that he wanted a “full clarification” and would demand “further information speedily from the U.S. authorities.”

Comic book fans can easily rhyme off names like Superman and The Avengers, but a Canadian team is hoping a new revamp will put Captain Canuck back in the mix.
The Canadian hero, who debuted on comic book shelves almost 40 years ago, is making a comeback in a new animated web series debuting — fittingly — on Canada Day at captaincanuck.com.
Back in the early 1970s, as industry leaders Marvel and DC Comics were putting out stories about Spider-Man, Batman and Superman, Winnipeg-based artist Richard Comely and his artist friend Ron Leishman were wondering why there wasn’t yet a Canadian counterpart.
“We would talk and he said ‘There should be a Canadian superhero.’ I said ‘Duh! Yeah! Why isn’t there [one]?’” Comely recalled to CBC News.
In 1975, the self-published indie comic Captain Canuck made its debut.
“It was really big, much more than I expected,” Comely said. “Canadian media certainly was very interested and so was American media. And it sold very well … it just sold out everywhere.”
Though the title eventually lapsed, a new group of creators — with the approval of Comely — is reviving Captain Canuck in an online series, featuring the voice of actor Kris Holden-Ried, best known for TV hits Lost Girl and The Tudors. Laura Vandervoort, Tatiana Maslany and Paul Amos are also taking on voice roles for the initial five-episode run.
You might only be allowed  one kid in China, but that kid had better not neglect his / her parents!
Grown children in China must visit their parents or potentially face fines or jail, a new law that came into effect on Monday says.
China’s new “Elderly Rights Law” deals with the growing problem of lonely elderly people by ordering adult children to visit their ageing parents.
The law says adults should care about their parents “spiritual needs” and “never neglect or snub elderly people”.


Best Buy’s latest promotion has provoked an angry response on social media, reports the Perspective Naked News Department, but the company is defending its decision to recognize what it calls the “Moving Day holiday” in Quebec.
angelMany people have been surprised to see a flyer promoting a “Moving Day Sale” in Quebec on July 1. The same promotion is being advertised in the rest of the country as a “Canada Day Sale.”
July 1 is a popular moving day in Quebec, since many leases in the province terminate at the end of June.
Early Sunday afternoon, Best Buy Canada’s Facebook page had about 30 angry posts from customers, many of them threatening to boycott the store.
“You know we celebrate Canada Day in Quebec too, right?” wrote Facebook user Lori-Anne Sernoskie.
Elizabeth Henry joked, “Can anyone tell me where to find a Moving Day flag? I have a Canadian Flag that needs replacing.”
Danielle Jang, spokeswoman for Best Buy, replied to the criticism in a statement sent to CBC News.
“Like every year, we feel it is important to recognize the Moving Day holiday in Quebec because it is a significant day in this market and it’s the only place in Canada where this happens,” she said.
“We want to celebrate and recognize this as an important day.”

Happy Canada Day, seniors!
As of today, you can choose to delay receiving your Old Age Security pension for up to five years, allowing you to receive a higher monthly amount in the future.
Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development Diane Finley made the announcement Monday.

Since many factors can influence a person’s retirement plans, the government says “it is important to consider one’s personal situation when deciding whether to delay receiving the OAS pension.”
