This article is the first in a series that will walk through iOS programming using the example of designing an iPhone game.

I love games and I'm a huge math nerd, so I made a new iPhone game based on a famous math problem called The Seven Bridges of Königsberg. I'm selling it in the App Store, but I also want to share it with everyone, so I made it open source.

One of the biggest challenges for transparency advocates is that many of the federal government's surveillance programs are so secret that government officials will not even acknowledge their existence.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has been challenging surveillance secrecy for years. In June, EFF staff attorney Mark Rumold spoke with Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller about the organization's most recent victory and what's next in the fight to unmask federal snooping...

In April 2013, police officers and a social worker from Sacramento County's Child Protective Services entered the home of Anna and Alex Nikolayev and took their baby, Sammy, away from them. They had no warrant.

The secrecy surrounding CPS stems from the nature of California's juvenile dependency courts which only allow limited press access and seal all court records. While media and other interested parties can petition the court to open the records, this can be a lengthy process and by no means guarantees results. ReasonTV petitioned the court to open the records in the Nikolayev's case and, almost two months later, we have still not received a ruling from the judge.

Reason TV sat down with Blake Boles to discuss his controversial book, Better Than College, which makes the case for education through entrepreneurship.

"If you're undecided, if you just want to go for the social experience, if you just want to move away from home, if you want to generally explore the liberal arts, I think that all those things can be done much more cheaply, effectively, and, again, building more of an entrepreneurial spirit by taking a path that is not traditional college." -- Blake Boles

Copyright exists to "promote the useful arts" according to the Constitution. But is it still doing that? And should the government protect so-called “intellectual property” in the same way it protects other forms of property?

"This disconnect between the public's view of copyright and fair use and what should and should not be prosecuted, versus the 'copyright maximist' view of the law, is our generation's Prohibition," says Ben Huh, CEO and founder of Cheezburger and a loud voice in the recent backlash to SOPA and PIPA, two congressional bills aimed at curbing internet piracy.

The Senate had until tomorrow to vote on the Cybersecurity Act of 2012. The amendments that were being proposed suggested that we may be onto something decent here.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, we're not going to have a cybersecurity bill this year. The Senate voted this morning to kill the CSA. According to The Hill, the bill only needed 60 votes to move forward with the legislation. It only received 52 votes with 46 voting to kill the bill as it stands. It's essentially the final nail in the coffin for all the cybersecurity bills that were proposed this year.

After the various problems and scandals faced by the Department of Veterans Affairs, President Obama signed into law a new heath care bill which would make it easier for veterans to receive government-paid health care.

Months of negotiations in Congress finally led to bipartisan support of the bill upon being passed. According to Politico, before signing the bill, President Obama took the chance to say the support for the bill "doesn't happen often in Congress." The president also took the chance, as he signed the bill, to say he wished he had the chance to sign more bills passed by Congress, joking about the numerous stalemates faced by Congress. President Obama said this bill is the first step in a long process to fix the many problems plaguing the VA. However, the president also highlighted the remaining problems which veterans face everyday including veteran homelessness and the backlog of disability claims throughout the VA.

Prior to the ACLU report on the increasing militarization of police, Massachusetts police offices replied to requests for information saying the SWAT teams in the state are private corporations, exempting them from open records laws.

These SWAT teams are supervised by what are called Law Enforcement Councils, or LECs. The LECs are overseen by an executive board of police chiefs from various local police and sheriff's departments and funded by the various law enforcement offices in the surrounding area. Sometimes, the offices which fund these LECs are headed by the same chiefs who sit on the board. Funding for an LEC is collected from the departments which make up the LEC, in the form of an annual membership fee. This fee grants the department access to information gathered by other member departments, and also allows the departments the use of a regionalized SWAT team as opposed to a localized team.

A new report released by the Drug Policy Alliance and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, says the DEA has spent the last four decades thwarting marijuana research which carries the potential of reclassification for the drug.

"The DEA has argued for decades that there is insufficient evidence to support rescheduling marijuana," reads the executive summary of the report. "At the same time, it has... acted in a manner intended to systematically impede scientific research." Currently, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug, meaning the federal government does not recognize any acceptable uses for the drug, including medicinal uses. The status of Schedule I also means the drugs in this category cannot receive federal funding for research, medicinal or otherwise. Marijuana is joined on the Schedule I tier by peyote, LSD, and heroine.
