Apple’s level of secrecy over its projects and products has been called draconian, even to the point of inconveniencing (and that’s putting it nicely) employees, and soon they won’t even be able to leave Apple’s facilities to have lunch, for fear of competitors overhearing their conversations. Admittedly, that’s a little hyperbolic, but there is a measure of truth to that statement.
Apple has had a planning request approved by the Cupertino Planning Commission, one that will allow the company to build a two-story, cafeteria-style facility to accommodate employees that currently work out of the various Apple facilities along Bandley Drive on the west side of North De Anza Boulevard. The key: the facility will be Apple-owned, and private, with no public access.

Far Rock’s Persia is gunnin’ for the hardest working indepedent MC title as she let loose a triple set of music treats tonight. Killer bars get laid down over the YM/MMG “Stay Schemin’” beat. P then slides in with the Slaughter boys of Shady 2.0 on their Hammer Dance. And finally Persia makes it known that she’s CLEALY aware of the current trend of signing “fair skinned” female rappers and touches on the matter on the “Murda Bizness” track.

Off her The Light of the Sun album Jill shares her joy with the people with this soulful cut. Combing the streets, her home and a few studio “guests” the video for “Blessed” is a perfect representation for this uplighting song.
For the past three years, President Obama has recognized Armenian Remembrance Day by using words such as “horrific” to describe the slaughter of 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire, breaking his promise to use the word “genocide.”
That does not sit well with many Armenian Americans, who say they feel betrayed.
“He has, in addition to betraying his own words and compromising America’s moral standing, gravely disappointed Armenians here in the United States, in Armenia, and around the world who had looked to him as an example of courage, conviction, and conscience,” the Armenian National Committee of America said in a statement.
Some nail polishes commonly found in salons and advertised as free of chemicals actually have high levels of agents known to cause birth defects, according to California chemical regulators.
A Department of Toxic Substances Control report released Tuesday determined that the mislabeled nail products have the potential to harm thousands of women who work in more than 48,000 nail salons in California and their customers.
