( Fox News ) Soon, you may be forced to upload a clear photograph of your face onto Facebook to prove you aren't a Russian bot.
The tech giant is using a new kind of captcha (a system designed to distinguish human from machine) to prove that its users aren't bots. According to a screenshot of the identity test that was posted online, verified by Facebook and reported in Wired, the prompt says: "Please upload a photo of yourself that clearly shows your face. We'll check it and then permanently delete it from our servers."
The new photo test, which apparently was launched earlier this year but has only shown up in screenshots on Twitter recently, is meant to help the social media company "catch suspicious activity at various points of interaction on the site, including creating an account, sending Friend requests, setting up ads payments, and creating or editing ads," a Facebook representative told Wired.
… Facebook recently asked users to upload nude photographs to Facebook Messenger as part of its effort to prevent revenge porn, according to The Verge. Facebook told the publication that the images are hashed and later deleted from its servers.

The revision also shows that the economy has been growing at a rate closer to what President Donald Trump said he would achieve than what many economic forecasters thought was likely.
Consumer spending grew at a 2.3 percent rate. Corporate pretax earnings rose 5.4 percent compared with a year earlier.

( Daily Caller ) A former Nigerian government official has come forward to tell the story of how Libyan slave traders captured African migrants, and cooked them "like kebabs."
Former minister of culture for Nigeria Femi Fani-Kayode said many migrants from Africa traveled to the Mediterranean to improve their lives but ended up being enslaved instead, International Business Times reported Wednesday.
Three out of four people captured by these gangs hail from southern Nigeria, Fani-Kayode said. Nigeria has the largest Christian population in Africa, according to Pew Research Center.
"75% of those sold into slavery in Libya who have their organs harvested, bodies mutilated and who are roasted like suya [a kebab] are from southern Nigeria," Fani-Kayode wrote. "Roasted alive! This is what Libyans do to sub-saharan Africans who are looking for a transit point to Europe."
Fani-Kayode attributed part of the carnage to the overthrow of former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. He argued removing Gaddafi created a power vacuum, that Libyan criminals were eager to fill.
"The greatest calamity that befell Africa in the last 20 years was the murder of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya," he concluded

Back in 2012, Matt Lauer's longtime co-host, Katie Couric, appeared on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live" and during one of the shows segments – "Plead The Fifth" – Andy asked Katie what Matt's most annoying habit was. Couric responds "he pinches me on the ass a lot".
TMZ posted a video showing Matt Lauer telling Meredith Vieira: "Pretty sweater. Keep bending over like that. It's a nice view."
Initially TMZ reported the comments were made towards Katie Couric, who was Lauer’s co-host from 1997 to 2006, but later clarified the article saying, “The video never shows a clear view of Meredith’s face — and we initially thought it was Katie Couric — however the timing makes sense. Meredith took over for Katie in Sept. 2006.”

( Daily Mail ) An explosive expose about Matt Lauer’s alleged sexual harassment of female employees at NBC reveals that the anchor allegedly flashed his penis at one woman and bought another a sex toy.
Variety spoke with 10 past and present workers at the company who accused Lauer of a vast array of sexual misconduct, including the woman who claims that she was sexually assaulted by the show’s long-time anchor beginning in 2014 at the Sochi Olympics.
That woman also shared her account with the human resources and legal departments of NBC News on Monday.
NBC launched an investigation into her claims on Tuesday morning which ultimately led to Lauer’s firing that same evening.
That swift response was still not enough for some women however, who said their complaints to executives at the company fell on deaf ears.
An NBC spokesperson disputed this though, to DailyMail.com, stating: ‘We can say unequivocally, that, prior to Monday night, current NBC News management was never made aware of any complaints about Matt Lauer's conduct.’
The New York Times reported shortly after the expose dropped that two new complaints had been filed against Lauer by NBC employees, including one woman who said that in 2001 she was summoned by Lauer to his office to have sex.
The unnamed woman, who was married at the time, said that given Lauer’s position she did not believe that she had a choice at the time.

( The Gateway Pundit ) In an exclusive report, One America News says Moore's accusers have ties to drug dealers and the Washington Post. The accuser, retired Alabama police officer Faye Gray, claims she was responsible for keeping an eye on Moore at the Gadsden Mall because he would make unwanted sexual advancements on young women.
OAN says its "own research revealed no truth behind the claims against Moore at the mall."
Gray's brother, Jimmy Wright, was arrested for distributing controlled substances in 1981. The prosecutor for the case was none other than Roy Moore.
OAN reports Moore made another enemy after ruling against convicted drug dealer Richard Hagedorn, who was brought before Judge Moore over contempt charges stemming from back payments for alimony and child support. Moore ruled against Hagedorn in 1994 and is still making alimony and child support payments.
The report then takes another turn.
Richard Hagedorn is the brother of David Hagedorn, a "longtime editor," of the Washington Post.
Judge Roy Moore is under siege after the Washington Post published sexual advancement allegations against the Alabama GOP Senate candidate.
On November 9th, the Washington Post accused Judge Moore of dating a 14 year-old girl in 1979.
Judge Moore has denied the claims.
While the link between the Moore allegation and David Hagedorn isn't clear, the connection is highly coincidental, says OAN.
