It’s not all that far from North Carolina in terms of mileage—but when it comes to LGBT rights, Pennsylvania is a world apart from the Tar Heel state.
On Thursday, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf signed two executive orders expanding anti-discrimination protections for LGBT government employees and contractors. Though Pennsylvania had already signed similar nondiscrimination protections into law in 2003, the orders expanded the coverage to contractors and codified equal employment opportunity.

“What happened in North Carolina, and what is going on in other states, should be a call to pass nondiscrimination legislation in Pennsylvania now,” read a statement issued Tuesday by (Click the title to read the full article).

USB thumb drives are undeniably convenient, but due to their small size and — depending on who you are — their rapid proliferation, they can be easy to lose track of. And now we have proof that we should be more careful about the information we store on these drives, as a recent study from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (here’s a link to the PDF) shows that as often as not, someone who finds a random USB drive will look through whatever is stored on it.
