Hong Kong Protests, Obama on ’60 Minutes,’ Facebook’s New Ad Platform

By Aura Bogado Sep 29, 2014

Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning: 

  • Afghanistan inaugurates Ashraf Ghani as president, a post for which he’ll be expected to share power with rival Abdullah Abdullah.
  • Ferguson is charging journalists and civil rights groups $135 an hour for simple records requests. 
  • Meet Atlas, Facebook’s new ad platform that will track users in new ways. It’s so scary that you can opt out of it (except opting out constantly expires and you can’t really opt out anyway because Atlas makes clear it’s still collecting information about you). 
  • Ooh. "The Walking Dead" prequel characters are revealed
  • Look up. The crescent moon is about to line up with Mars and Antaras tonight.
