Legislators slam advertising group for advising members to avoid Do Not Track technology

By Madison Ruppert: Representatives Joe Barton (R-Texas) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) called out the massive Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) – a group of advertising trade groups – for their statement which advised companies to completely ignore the already weak privacy features of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
The DAA’s statement was far from surprising given the fact that the industry is in fact focused on data mining. Considering the troubling developments like Google’s patented technology which can tailor advertisements based on environmental information like background sounds, this effort to collect massive amounts of data which is then passed off to government agencies will only get more intense.
While Reps. Barton and Markey aren’t bringing the issue of the collaboration between companies like Google and the U.S. intelligence community, their privacy concerns are inextricably linked.
Markey and Barton co-chair the Bipartisan Privacy Caucus and, in addressing the DAA’s statement, said the advertising industry is puttingprofits over privacy.”
The DAA’s statement comes after Microsoft announced this June that they will make Microsoft’s Internet Explorer’s default setting one which requests that third-party advertisers do not track the browsing activity of users.
However, as the previous sentence might have made clear to some, this is a request. It does not force the advertisers to not track you.
Note: If you want to avoid as much tracking as possible (which is getting increasingly difficult) please explore my easily followed guides available here and here and implement as many of the methods as you can.
“The other major Web browsers also offer a “Do Not Track” feature, but Explorer was the first to have the setting as its default,” Brendan Sasso of The Hill rightly points out.

Turkey readies herself for war with Syria: Erdogan primes the gun

By Richard Cottrell: The ‘resistance movement,’ the designated liberators of Syria, have clearly failed to prevail against the unexpectedly stout regime of Bashar al-Assad.
NATO piled all its eggs into one basket, the basket broke and the end result is a bad case of scrambled eggs. So we are now moving into the next stage of the Syrian end game: an attack by the Turks across the Syrian border, portrayed as the inevitable consequence of hostile Syrian actions.
The inevitable Syrian response will invoke the collective ‘all for one, one for all’ articles of the NATO Atlantic Charter. That’s how modern wars are started these days, and the forthcoming one may well be long and exceptionally nasty.
Editor’s note: I have been raising the prospect of Turkey invoking Article Five of the North Atlantic Treaty since February of this year but oddly enough it has never occurred. It will be interesting to see if and when it is invoked since all of the pieces have been in place for quite a while. The real question is, why hasn’t it been invoked already?
The Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan has largely given the game away. He’s advising the nation to be ready for war with Syria. He is not able to muster any specific reasons (beyond mysterious artillery bombardments across the frontier, mere pin pricks inflated as invitations to war) as to why his countrymen must fight a neighboring Islamic country, with whom Turkey has enjoyed peaceful relations well, forever. But then, like many others in the long chorus line of belligerent attention seekers, he does not care. He is the man of the hour and he will obligingly kick off NATO’s latest ‘humanitarian intervention.’
The consistent running theme of the Islamic AK (Justice and Development) government that came to power in Turkey a decade ago has been the rousing of the old Ottoman spirit in smart new Ottoman clothes.

Food Inflation To Surge, Goldman Warns

We have been very active in our discussions of the impact of the pending rise in food prices around the world (from central bank largesse to weather-related chaos). As Goldman notes, food inflation has been one of the most significant sources of headline inflation variation in emerging markets (EM) over the past few years. Since June, international prices for agricultural commodities have risen almost 30%, increasing the risk of fresh, food-related increases to EM headline inflation. We, like Goldman, expect EM headline inflation to start to reflect the relevant pressures more broadly in the October prints at the latest. While the effects, for now, are expected to be less extreme than the 2010-2011 episode, the timing as the US enters its fiscal-cliff-prone malaise, could mean a further round of easing will reignite this critical inflationary concern.

From American Banker:
'Yet Another Bank': One week after New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a civil case against JPMorgan Chase alleging fraud in how Bear Stearns packaged and sold mortgage-backed securities, Wells Fargo finds itself being sued by the government for nearly a decade's worth of "reckless" mortgage lending. U.S. prosecutors (not affiliated with Schneiderman's mortgage task force, though he has promised more suits are on the way) are seeking "hundreds of millions of dollars" in civil damages from the bank on behalf of the Federal Housing Administration, alleging Wells "made false certifications" about the condition of their mortgage loans so that the government agency would insure them. FHA then had to foot the bill when the bank's alleged "mortgage factory" — Dealbook's interpretation of the complaint — output went belly up. "Yet another major bank has engaged in a longstanding and reckless trifecta of deficient training, deficient underwriting and deficient disclosure, all while relying on the convenient backstop of government insurance," United States attorney in Manhattan Preet Bharara said in a (perhaps obvious)statement.
