#1 ‘Wrong track’: Public sours on nation’s direction after shutdown

A partial government shutdown began at midnight on Dec. 22, 2018, when a funding agreement between the Congress and President Trump could not be reached. The 35-day shutdown has come to an end after he announced a deal on Jan. 25, 2019.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., leaves the chamber after Senate Democrats blocked President Donald Trump's request for $5.7 billion to construct his long-sought wall along the U.S-Mexico border, as a partial government shutdown continues for a 34th day, at the Capitol in Washington, Jan. 24.

#2 Polar Vortex to drive record-smashing cold across much of nation

A major snowstorm pounding parts of the Midwest on Monday will give way to record-smashing cold this week as a powerful Polar Vortex drives a deep freeze across the nation, forecasters say.

The system could envelop a quarter of the continental U.S. in below-zero temperatures.

"Some locations in the Midwest will be below zero continuously for 48-72 hours," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll.

Weather.us meteorologist Ryan Maue said a "blend of models" shows that 55 million people in 24% of the continental U.S. land could be at 0-degrees or lower Wednesday morning. In Chicago, wind chills as low as 55 below zero are "likely" midweek, the National Weather Service said.

#3 TechThe digital drug: Internet addiction spawns U.S. treatment programs

(This Jan 27 story corrects location of Mason, Ohio)

By Gabriella Borter

CINCINNATI (Reuters) - When Danny Reagan was 13, he began exhibiting signs of what doctors usually associate with drug addiction. He became agitated, secretive and withdrew from friends. He had quit baseball and Boy Scouts, and he stopped doing homework and showering.

But he was not using drugs. He was hooked on YouTube and video games, to the point where he could do nothing else. As doctors would confirm, he was addicted to his electronics.

"After I got my console, I kind of fell in love with it," Danny, now 16 and a junior in a Cincinnati high school, said. "I liked being able to kind of shut everything out and just relax."

#5 ‘Black Panther’ wins top honor at SAG Awards, ‘Maisel’ soars

NEW YORK — "Black Panther" took the top award at Sunday's 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards, giving Ryan Coogler's superhero sensation its most significant awards-season honor yet and potentially setting up Wakanda for a major role at next month's Academy Awards.

The two leading Oscar nominees — "Roma" and "The Favourite" — were bypassed by the actors guild for a best ensemble field that also included "BlacKkKlansman," ''Crazy Rich Asians," ''Bohemian Rhapsody" and "A Star Is Born." Although "Black Panther" wasn't nominated for any individual SAG Awards, it took home the final award at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Before a stage full of actors, Chadwick Boseman tried to put into context the moment for the trailblazing "Black Panther," which also won for its stunt performer ensemble. "To be young, gifted and black," he said, quoting the Nina Simone song.

"We know what it's like to be told there isn't a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on. ... We know what's like to be beneath and not above. And that is what we went to work with every day," said Boseman. "We knew that we could create a world that exemplified a world we wanted to see. We knew that we had something to give."

The win puts "Black Panther" squarely in contention for best picture at the Academy Awards where it's nominated for seven honors including best picture. Actors make up the largest percentage of the academy, so their preferences can have an especially large impact on the Oscar race. In the last decade the SAG ensemble winner has gone on to win best picture at the Academy Awards half of the time.

#6 Cases in Washington Measles Outbreak Continue to Rise

© Justin Sullivan/Getty Images
Measles cases in a corner of southwestern Washington that is suffering an outbreak of the potentially deadly disease have hit 34, according to health officials. 

Clark County Public Health said in a statement Sunday that 34 cases have been confirmed, with a further nine suspected.

The latest cases come after the county declared the spike in incidences of the highly contagious disease amounted to a public health emergency on January 18. The measure is designed to ensure the body has the resources to tackle the outbreak. By January 25, Governor Jan Inseel had declared a state of emergency.

Of the total cases, 24 were in children under the age of 10; nine involved those aged between 11 to 18; and one related to an individual aged between 19 to 29 years. One individual was hospitalized. 30 of the patients had not been vaccinated against the disease. It was as yet unclear if the remaining four had received their shots.

The health body urged anyone who has been exposed to measles and believes they have experienced its symptoms to “call their health care provider prior to visiting the medical office to make a plan that avoids exposing others in the waiting room.”

#8 Migrants are being paid thousands of dollars to return home

KABUL, Afghanistan — A wave of anxiety washed over Mohammad Farooq Niazi as the plane touched down in his homeland.

"I missed my country," he said, recalling his mindset on the day he returned to Afghanistan after almost three years of trying to build a new life in Europe. "But I wasn't feeling safe."

As traffic crawled into Kabul, Niazi worried he'd be killed in one of the regular attacks carried out by militant groups including the Taliban and the Islamic State.

Niazi, 27, is one of thousands of Afghan migrants who have been paid to return home by European governments. Austria gave him $3,100 and a one-way ticket to Kabul. The rest was up to him.

#9 Canada’s relations with China were already bad. Then Trudeau fired his ambassador

Canada's diplomatic rift with China looks set to deepen following the dismissal of the country's top diplomat in Beijing.

The forced departure of John McCallum, announced by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday, is the latest unintended consequence stemming from the high-profile arrest of Chinese telecoms executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver last year.

The resignation comes just days after the former ambassador appeared to provide comments in support of China's assessment that Meng's arrest could be construed as politically motivated.

Meng, chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei, was arrested by Canadian authorities acting on behalf of the United States on December 1. The US government alleges that Meng helped Huawei dodge US sanctions on Iran and has indicated it will file a formal extradition request by the January 30 deadline.

Speaking to Chinese-language reporters in Beijing last week, McCallum said that Meng stood a good chance of avoiding extradition to the United States, suggesting that remarks made by US President Donald Trump had potentially strengthened her case.

#10 Venezuela’s opposition in talks with military and civilian officials to force out Maduro, Juan Guaidó says in interview

Venezuela's political turmoil has further deepened amid growing tension over President Nicolas Maduro's future as the country's leader. Maduro started a second term on January 10 following a widely boycotted election last year that many foreign governments refused to recognize.

On January 23, Juan Guaido, the leader of the opposition-controlled National Assembly, declared himself the interim president.

Venezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido, accompanied by his wife Fabiana Rosales, speaks to the media after a holy mass in Caracas, on Jan. 27.

A supporter of Venezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido holds a document, regarding a proposed amnesty law for members of the military, police and civilians, as she explains it to the soldiers at the gate of Naval Command building in Caracas, on Jan. 27.

#11 Brazil dam collapse: Death toll jumps to 58

The number of deaths from a collapsed dam at a Brazilian iron mine rose on Sunday from 37 to 58, a spokesperson for the Civil Defense said.

Authorities say 427 people were in the Córrego do Feijão mine in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais when the dam burst Friday, unleashing a muddy sea of mining debris into the region.

Hundreds of people are still missing and the extent of damage is still being calculated, especially in the mining town of Brumadinho, which was nearly buried in the deluge.

The latest death toll was announced after rescuers returned to the mine Sunday afternoon. Authorities temporarily halted search and rescue on Sunday and placed 3,000 people under evacuation orders amid fears that another dam nearby was about to rupture. The orders were lifted after authorities determined dam VI was no longer at risk of bursting.

The disaster renewed scrutiny of Brazilian mining giant Vale, which was linked to another deadly dam collapse in Minas Gerais less than four years ago. Protesters gathered in Casa Branca, about 15 kilometers from Brumadinho, waving signs that read "Vale kills" and "Vale profits while mud kills," local media reported.

#12 In Paris, ‘red scarves’ turn out to protest violence of ‘yellow vest’ demonstrations

PARIS —After months of crippling protests by “yellow vest” demonstrators, thousands of people sporting red scarves marched through Paris on Sunday in favor of the French Republic and against the violence that has become a weekly feature of public life in this country.

The French street has always been a crucial stage for political theater, and Sunday’s demonstration — billed as the “Republican March of Liberties” — was the long-awaited intervention in a story line that, until now, had featured just one side of a national conversation on social inequality.

#13 Russia and China, heavily invested in Venezuela, warily watch the political turmoil

MOSCOW - Venezuela and President Nicolas Maduro have been a costly investment for Russia and China as they seek to expand their influence in Latin America. They are determined now not to lose ground.

Moscow and Beijing are warily eyeing the events in Venezuela last week, when opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself acting president and demanded that Maduro resign. The United States and other nations recognized Guaido as the rightful president.

Maduro, a pariah in many world capitals, has been a frequent guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping. With every visit, Maduro walked away with new loans and cash.

In the 10 years ending in 2016, China lent Venezuela about $62 billion, much of which Caracas could repay with oil. Moscow in the last several years gave Venezuela $17 billion in loans and investment, and in December the two governments signed a new deal in which Russia will invest $6 billion in Venezuela's oil and gold sectors.

China and Russia are Venezuela's two main creditors, and they have been the principal economic force keeping the Maduro government afloat, making the difference between solvency and bankruptcy, financial experts say.

#14 Rare red panda found after escape from Belfast Zoo

LONDON — Officials say a rare red panda is safe and sound, a day after it escaped from Belfast Zoo in Northern Ireland.

The animal went missing on Sunday, and Belfast City Council had urged members of the public to report any sightings to the zoo.

The council said Monday that the mammal had been found, adding that "it is safe and well and has been returned to the zoo."

Two red panda cubs were born at the zoo in June, bringing the population there to four.

A small tree-dwelling mammal native to the Himalayas, the red panda is not closely related to the better-known giant panda.

#15 NewsInsys founder, former executives face opioid kickback scheme trialNewsArctic blasts sub-zero freeze towards U.S. upper Midwest, NortheastNewsInsys founder, former executives face opioid kickback scheme trial

By Nate Raymond

BOSTON (Reuters) - The one-time billionaire founder of Insys Therapeutics Inc and four other former executives and managers of the opioid drugmaker will face trial over charges they conspired to pay doctors bribes to prescribe patients an addictive fentanyl spray to boost sales.

Lawyers are set to deliver opening statements Monday in federal court in Boston in the case of former Insys chairman John Kapoor, the highest-level executive of a painkiller manufacturer to be tried amid a deadly U.S. opioid abuse epidemic.

Prosecutors say Kapoor directed a kickback scheme that helped fuel the epidemic in order to boost the company's sales of Subsys, an under-the-tongue fentanyl spray approved only for use in managing severe pain in cancer patients.

Fentanyl is an opioid 100 times stronger than morphine.

#16 NewsExplainer: How Congress will negotiate border security dealNewsAs U.S. government reopens, lawmakers say shutdowns don’t workNewsU.S. Midwest braces for record-breaking cold blast

By Richard Cowan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A 35-day struggle between President Donald Trump and the U.S. Congress to cut a deal to end the partial government shutdown finally ended on Friday. Now the hard part begins.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers will have until Feb. 15 to craft a border security agreement satisfactory to both sides.

Trump has threatened that if he doesn't like the outcome, he could throw the government right back into shutdown mode.

Or, he also said, he might try declaring a "national emergency" which, he said, would get him the $5.7 billion he wants for a U.S.-Mexico border wall. Such a step would also likely trigger a court battle with Democrats.

#17 NewsTrump says he will declare an emergency if he doesn’t reach a border dealNewsTrump says he will declare an emergency if he doesn’t reach a border dealNewsBacking down, Trump agrees to end shutdown without border wall money

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday he would declare a national emergency if he doesn't eventually reach a deal with Democrats on border security.

Trump, who made the comments to reporters during an immigration event at the White House, said earlier on Friday he had reached a deal with lawmakers to reopen the government until Feb. 15 while they work on Trump's demand for funding for a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.

“I think we have a good chance" of reaching an agreement, Trump said.

"We’ll work with the Democrats and negotiate and if we can’t do that, then we’ll do a - obviously we’ll do the emergency because that’s what it is. It’s a national emergency,” he said.

Declaring an emergency could allow Trump to circumvent Congress and repurpose funds Congress has appropriated for other purposes in order to build a wall.

#18 ‘She’s Wrong’: Washington Post Hits Back At Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Misfired Facts’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) faced off with The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler in a heated battle over a fact check chiding her for playing “fast and loose” with the truth on living and minimum wages.

The statements in question came during a Martin Luther King Day Q&A last Monday with writer Ta-Nehisi Coates. While discussing economic inequality, the freshman congresswoman asserted that “a vast majority of the country doesn’t make a living wage,” lamenting that “you can work 100 hours and not feed your kids.”

“I think it’s wrong that corporations like Walmart and Amazon can get paid by the government, essentially experience a wealth transfer from the public, for paying people less than a minimum wage,” she added.

Debunking the lawmaker’s claim on minimum wage, Kessler turned to MIT’s Living Wage Calculator, speaking to its manager, Amy Glasmeier, who noted the statement wasn’t quite accurate considering 2017′s living wage averaged just over $16 an hour. Still, Glasmeier acknowledged estimates are tough.

But Kessler gave Ocasio-Cortez credit where it was due, noting her “100 hours” remark was a low estimate, if anything.

#19 A Tiny Screw Shows Why iPhones Won’t Be ‘Assembled in U.S.A.’

SAN FRANCISCO — Despite a trade war between the United States and China and past admonishments from President Trump “to start building their damn computers and things in this country,” Apple is unlikely to bring its manufacturing closer to home.

A tiny screw illustrates why.

In 2012, Apple’s chief executive, Timothy D. Cook, went on prime-time television to announce that Apple would make a Mac computer in the United States. It would be the first Apple product in years to be manufactured by American workers, and the top-of-the-line Mac Pro would come with an unusual inscription: “Assembled in USA.”

But when Apple began making the $3,000 computer in Austin, Tex., it struggled to find enough screws, according to three people who worked on the project and spoke on the condition of anonymity because of confidentiality agreements.

#20 Facebook has ‘new tools’ against EU election meddling

Facebook unveiled Monday new tools to counter online political meddling in the European elections, part of a campaign to answer growing pressure to rein in disinformation.

The US tech giant's vice president, former British deputy prime minister Nick Clegg, said in a speech the methods would become available in late March and help "make political advertising on Facebook more transparent".

The new rules will require a wide range of political ads linked to the European elections on May 23 to 26 to be specifically authorised and tagged with a clear "paid for by" disclaimer.

Clegg said these tools will also cover so-called issue ads "which don't explicitly back one candidate or political party but which focus on highly politicised topics like immigration."

#21 Chromebook instant tethering comes to non-Google phones

Chrome OS' Instant Tethering is very handy if you need to keep your Chromebook online, but there's still a major gotcha involved: you need a Nexus or Pixel phone for that automatic hotspot to work. Things appear to be loosening up, however. Numerous users talking to Android Police have reported that their Beta and Dev channel versions of Chrome OS now support Instant Tethering with non-Google smartphones. It's not clear how many devices are compatible, but readers have had success with multiple OnePlus and Samsung models.

The barriers to using the feature aren't especially high. Google officially requires Chrome OS 70, Android 7.1, a data plan with tethering support and the same Google account on both devices. That could change with third-party phones in the mix, but it's a positive sign.

This doesn't appear to be universally available, and you might need to enable a flag (chrome://flags/#instant-tethering) to make it work. You're also unlikely to see this reach a stable version of Chrome OS for a while. Nonetheless, it could be a big deal if you like the thought of an always-connected Chromebook and would rather not jump through hoops just to stay online.

#22 The LG G8 ThinQ may swap out an earpiece for another camera, leaks suggest

LG G8 ThinQ renders are popping up in multiple places on the internet, complete with a splashy indigo wallpaper. It looks similar to the G7 but with one significant difference: the earpiece is missing.

Like the G7, there’s a notch, a headphone jack, and a slight chin at the bottom. Unlike the G7, the G8 appears to have horizontally aligned dual rear cameras rather than vertically aligned ones. Instead of the earpiece, LG’s G8 uses the extra space for another selfie camera (rather than, say, doing away with the notch).

Overall, the G8, according to these renders, is missing a lot of the innovative features we’re seeing in other flagship phones: in-display fingerprint readers, alternatives to the notch like a hole punch cutout, and other new ways to design a screen.

The phone is supposed to vibrate its display in order to produce sound instead of using an earpiece, an anonymous source told @Onleaks. Both Xiaomi and Sharp have attempted to use similar technology in 2014and 2016, with less than optimal results. The LG G8 ThinQ could fare better than its predecessors given that we’re now in 2019, but it’s still unclear how good the sound quality will be from screen vibrations. So far, LG’s head of global communications for consumer electronics Ken Hong has tweeted a denial of earlier, similar-looking renders, saying that they’re not real. We’re expecting to learn more at Mobile World Congress.

#23 Smartphones with no buttons or ports look cool, but you probably don’t want them yet

There are no buttons and no ports—just a big screen and some wireless tech inside.

Smartphones haven’t always been as rugged as they are now. If you’ve ever put your phone in a bag of rice in the hopes of drying it out after a quick dip in the sink, then you remember just how susceptible to water smartphones used to be. (By the way, that rice trick never really did anything). Modern smartphones, however, have gotten adept at sealing edges around vulnerable spots like buttons, speaker holes, charging ports, and even the rapidly-fading headphone jacks.

Chinese smartphone maker Meizu, however, took the concept of a sealed phone another step. There are no physical buttons. There are no ports. There isn’t even a slot for the SIM card. As a result, the phone is IP68 rated when it comes to water and dust resistance, which means it can sit in up to five feet of water for a half hour and still be fine. It looks pretty cool, too.

While the idea of a totally smooth phone is totally realistic, some of the technologies required to make it happen are still in the early stages, which make using this phone here in 2019 seem pretty tedious. Here's a look at some of the tech that went into making this slab of a device.

#24 China Blocks Microsoft’s Bing Due to Technical Error, Sources Say

Microsoft Corp.’s search engine Bing was blocked in China due to an accidental technical error rather than an attempt at censorship, according to people familiar with the matter.

By about 11:00 p.m. Beijing time Thursday, internet users in the country had begun to report that the search engine was once again accessible.

The government had no intention to block Bing, according to two people with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be identified discussing confidential information.

#25 Xiaomi’s double-bending, foldable phone just stole Samsung’s thunder

Mira a Bin Lin, presidente de Xiaomi, jugar con el prototipo del teléfono flexible de la empresa. ¿Cómo lo nombrarías? 

Samsung is expected to show off a fully functioning version of its hotly anticipated foldable phone at its Galaxy S10 launch event on Feb. 20. But after Chinese rival brand Xiaomi teased its own book-like foldable phone on Wednesday, will people still care? 

In a video posted to Weibo, China's answer to Twitter, Xiaomi co-founder and president Bin Lin plays a series of videos on a flat, rectangular device that looks like a tablet. Then he folds the right and left edges of the screen back on itself and continues using the device in typical smartphone mode.

This is novel for two reasons. It's the first time any company has seen a trifold foldable phone prototype and at first glance, this design makes a lot of sense. So far we've seen foldable phones that bend down the middle, such as the Royole FlexPai that's on sale now, and the folding Samsung prototype, a phone that's rumored to be called the Galaxy X, Galaxy F, Galaxy Fold or Galaxy Flex.

Second, Xiaomi's design is the first true challenge to Samsung's early leadership in the foldable space, a brave new design that's poised to bring the stagnant smartphone market renewed interest and growth. Industry experts agree that foldable phones won't drive enormous sales and revenue when they first appear, but that early movers can gain experience in what works and what doesn't ahead of rivals who hang back.

#26 Agent: Anthony Davis tells New Orleans that he wants a trade

Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans.

And the NBA might soon see a blockbuster trade to come together.

The five-time All-Star has told the Pelicans that he wants to be traded to a championship-contending team and will not sign an extension with New Orleans, agent Rich Paul told The Associated Press on Monday.

ESPN first reported Davis' demand to be traded to a contender. It is a move that will resonate around the league, one that will have most — if not all — teams trying to see how they can put together a package good enough for the Pelicans to send Davis their way.

Davis is having the best season of his career, averaging 29.3 points and 13.3 rebounds per game. He'll almost certainly become a six-time All-Star later this week when the NBA announces the full rosters for this year's game that will be played Feb. 17 in Charlotte.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "IT40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SBA  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit InternetTop40.com you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?).

The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started InternetTop40.com about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.

Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SBA.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later.

Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created.

Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 80,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 40,000 people we could pay them approx. $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 40,000 people a lot well yes it would be a lot of employees but with more money simply put into a trust account we could employ more people

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website InternetTop40.com am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something.

The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to InternetTop40.com aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content.

Further I promise to you and all who read this if we do prevail in the lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. We will use half of any monies we may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, we will use half of any monies we may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. We will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, we want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in InternetTop40.com Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. One final note let me tell you about a new website coming to the world called IVAMP.org.... Thank you ttyl
