The video above discusses the Senate version of the House’s Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). In the Senate the bill is called the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). SOPA has gotten more attention than PIPA because it was moving faster in the legislative process. But PIPA is just as dangerous, and now it is moving faster. PIPA would give the government new powers to block Americans’ access websites that corporations don’t like.
The bill lets corporations and the US government censor entire websites and cut sites off from advertising, payments and donations.This legislation will stifle free speech and innovation, and even threaten popular web services likeTwitter, YouTube, and Facebook.
The bill is scheduled for a test vote in the Senate on Jan. 24th: We need to act now to let our lawmakers know just how terrible it is. Will you fill out the form here to ask your lawmakers to oppose the legislation and support a filibuster?
News broke back in September that Lady Gaga and “The Vampire Diaries” actor Taylor Kinney were the hot new item in Hollywood after meeting on the set of her “You and I” video. Now the pair have reportedly been spotted around Kinney’s home of Lancaster County, Penn. – and maybe checking out local real estate?
WHP TV, a local news station, says sources tell them Gaga has been spotted looking at the Oak Hill Road home, a 6000-square foot mansion on the mark for just under $1.7 million, which is located within the gated community of Bent Creek in Manheim Township (pictured, inset).
Gaga and Kinney have been spotted in Lancaster County several times recently – at local bars, restaurants and a food store in Lititz. Rumors are also running rampant on Facebook that Gaga has already purchased a home in the area. Local real estate agent Marilyn Berger tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that so far, it’s all just rumors.
“We hear that she may buy a house around here. I know other Realtors who handle higher-end houses, and they haven’t talked to her either. But if she’s looking for a house, I’d be more than happy to help her,” says Berger.
