Dozens of workers assembling Xbox video game consoles climbed to a factory dormitory roof, and some threatened to jump to their deaths, in a dispute over job transfers that was defused but highlights growing labor unrest as China's economy slows.

The dispute was set off after contract manufacturer Foxconn Technology Group announced it would close the assembly line for Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 models at its plant in the central city of Wuhan and transfer the workers to other jobs, workers and Foxconn said Thursday. Workers reached by telephone said Foxconn initially offered severance pay for those who wanted to leave rather than be transferred, but then reneged, angering the workers; Foxconn, in a statement, disputed that account, saying only transfers were offered, not severance.

Some people in Doaktown are fighting the suspension of the community's X-ray technician, who refused to get a hepatitis B vaccination.

Janet Hughes says she previously accepted mandatory vaccines for measles, tetanus and whooping cough. But she refused the hepatitis B injection because she believes she was infected with hepatitis C when she was younger and feared the vaccine might cause a negative reaction. New Brunswick's Horizon Health Network suspended her without pay three months ago. Hughes contends it's a human rights issue.

Take subject X. What if nearly everything we're told about X - by the most famous experts and by people in government, as well as most folks in the media - is wrong?

Let X be diet. Maybe the whole "anti-fat" idea, dominant for most of my adult life, is wrong. There's evidence for it. Let X be AGW, the theory of anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming. We're told that there's a consensus in favor of it. But there's less to that alleged consensus than meets the eye - or scientific rigor. But to really blow your mind, consider central banking.

What started off as a routine harassment from a middle school teacher to a student over a t-shirt he was wearing has turned into an embarrassing and infuriating abuse of First Amendment rights in West Virginia.

First, school officials suspended 14-year-old Jared Marcum because he was wearing an NRA shirt. Then police arrested him because he had argued in the principal's office that the shirt wasn't breaking school policy. This week, prosecutors tried to keep him from speaking to the media through an emergency gag order, which they said would serve in his "better interest." But Logan County prosecutors Christopher White and Sabrina Deskins are the same people trying to convict him on a charge of obstruction, which could land him in jail for a year, so they are the last people looking out for his better interest.

Lost in all the screeching over the Citizens United ruling two years ago was the fact that unions have largely been exempt from campaign-finance restrictions on speech.

Unions spent a fortune in 2010, far more than the corporations will in this election, no matter what the hysterics think. In fact, according to FEC reports from that election, unions accounted for three of the top five outside groups in spending for the midterms - specifically, public-sector unions AFSCME, SEIU, and the NEA. Today, the Wall Street Journal reports that even those numbers are deceiving as to the real spending by unions, with or without Citizens United.

Due largely to unauthorized leaks, we now know that the National Security Agency has seized from private companies voluminous data on the phone and Internet usage of all U.S. citizens.

We've also learned that the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has approved the constitutionality of these seizures in secret proceedings in which only the government appears, and in opinions kept secret even from the private companies from whom the data are seized. If this weren't disturbing enough, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform, is compiling a massive database of citizens' personal information-including monthly credit-card, mortgage, car and other payments-ostensibly to protect consumers from abuses by financial institutions.
