NEWSFLASH: Anti-Abortion Extremist Flip Benham–Guilty!
Today, 12 jurors in Charlotte, N.C., found anti-abortion extremist leader Philip “Flip” Benham guilty of criminally stalking a Charlotte-area physician who provides abortions. This is the second time Benham, who is director of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue/Operation Save America, was convicted for conduct that caused persons to fear for their safety or the safety of their family.

“For too long, Benham and his organization have been able to stalk and terrorize abortion providers and their families with impunity,” said duVergne Gaines, legal coordinator for the Feminist Majority Foundation, who attended the five-day trial. “They have distributed WANTED posters and engaged in other outrageous conduct in an attempt to intimidate doctors out of providing safe, legal abortions for women here in Charlotte.”

Formerly head of Operation Rescue, Benham moved to North Carolina in 2002, vowing to close down abortion provider Family Reproductive Health. As Carole Joffe wrote for Ms. in Winter 2010,

He has not succeeded, but he and his followers have made daily functions harrowing, upping the ante since the election of a pro-choice U.S. president and the murder of [Wichita, Kans., abortion physician Dr. George] Tiller. Among other actions against incoming patients, Benham screams through a microphone at a decibel level so loud that he can be heard inside the clinic, ‘Satan [is] going to drink the blood of your babies!’

Moreover, Benham distributed Old West-style WANTED posters at doctors’ homes, neighborhoods and offices. In key testimony for the prosecution, a Charlotte police detective presented compelling details of how anti-abortion extremists have murdered doctors who were initially featured on such posters. “[That testimony underscores] the importance of prosecuting extremists to the full extent of the law in order to prevent threats from escalating to violence,” says Gaines.

Adds Katherine Spillar, executive vice president of the Feminist Majority Foundation (and executive editor of Ms.):

We hope this verdict will encourage other district attorneys and the Department of Justice to prosecute extremists who, like Benham, are terrorizing abortion doctors across the country.

In addition to receiving the guilty verdict, the judge put forward a protective order preventing Benham from entering the residential community where the doctor lives or from coming within 500 feet of the doctor’s office and the two women’s health clinics where he performs abortions. Additionally, Benham is prevented from contacting the doctor and his family in any manner and from publishing WANTED posters or other materials (including web postings) that reference the doctor or his home or office address.

Benham has appealed the verdict, but the protective order will remain in force until the appeal is heard.

Newsflash: People search engine Spock launches
New people search engine Spock opens its doors to the public today for searching on its growing index of 100 million+ people on the web. Spock's founder says its people search results will be smarter than Google's:
The issue is that when you now search for people on Google, what you get is a bunch of documents about people. If you have a popular name like David Stern, who is the NBA commissioner, the first couple of pages are really about that person. So you really can't find the David Stern you met at the bar or from a business meeting.
My initial tests on Spock turned up decent results for Lifehacker (pictured), but it's as slow as molasses this morning as new users try it out. Less creepy and more Web 2.0 than Zabasearch, Spock includes tags, photos, Wikipedia, press mentions and contact information in its results, too.

Apple releases new iWork, iLife, updates .Mac
iLife, iWork, and .Mac all saw updates at Apple's Town Hall event today. iWork has added a spreadsheet app called Numbers, iLife has a whole new iDVD, improved iPhoto and—among other changes—is touting integration with the new 10GB-storage .Mac, which marries iLife with the web in lots of fun new ways (like syncing online photo and video galleries). iWork and iLife '08 will set you back around $80, and .Mac holds steady at $99/year. After the jump, check out screenshots of some of the new application updates.

Numbers looks interesting. According to the Numbers homepage, it will easily import and export Excel spreadsheets, so it may actually be a viable Excel alternative.

Give us your thoughts on the new Mac software and .Mac updates in the comments.

Launch: Access your Google Reader feeds offline with Google Gears
Holy offline access, Batgirl! Google releases Google Gears, an application that lets web sites store their data on your local computer using only your web browser. Google Reader is already supported - read your feeds on the plane! - and word on the street is that Gmail and Google Docs is to come. Screenshots after the jump:
On the Mac, Google Gears is just a regular Firefox extension; on the PC it's a full-blown application (.exe installer.)

To install, first you must ponder and agree to your "relationship with Google," to make sure this data-mingling is, you know, consensual.

On Windows download the installer and run it; Mac, install the Firefox extension. After this things got dicey for me on the PC, but on the Mac when I restarted my browser and went to Google Reader, I got this prompt:

Once you allow, you'll have the option to "go offline" (check the little icon on the upper righthand corner:

When you do go offline, Gears will download all your unread items for offline access:

Once that's done, you can read feed items even when you're not connected to the intertubes. And I must say it's hella snappy without all that network traffic happening! When you go back online, Gears sync's up your read items with new items waiting for you in the cloud.

Like I said, even after running the local installer a couple of times on my XP (virtual) machine, Gears seemed to have no effect, but it worked like a charm on the Mac with Firefox. Your mileage, of course, may vary. Google Gears is hot out of the oven and still in beta so do use with care.
