Woman changes legal name to 'stupid' Facebook pseudonym to unlock account

A UK woman whose Facebook account was locked down over the use of a pseudonym changed her legal name accordingly to get it back. Jemma Rogers, a holistic therapist from Lewisham in southeast London, joined the social network in 2008. But not wishing to be annoyed by friend requests from real-world acquaintances, she used the pseudonym Jemmaroid Von Laalaa, British media report.
Last month Facebook, which demands that users only use their real names, asked Rogers to provide an ID for ‘von Laalaa’ to verify her account. She failed, although she admits she tried to Photoshop her bank cards to produce 'proof' for Facebook. Her account was suspended, and in a desperate move to get it back Rogers decided to change her legal name to Jemmaroid Von Laalaa via deed poll. Ironically, the 30-year-old is still locked out even after all her troubles, with a robot program responding that her situation is being looked into.

Inside Story: Can Kuwait justify mandatory DNA testing?

Kuwait has been jolted into taking drastic measures to improve security. A new law has been passed for mandatory DNA testing of its more than four million citizens and foreign residents. It's the first country in the world to make testing compulsory for its entire population. Those who refuse risk a big fine and a year in jail. Kuwait's parliament took swift action following the bombing of a Shia Muslim mosque on June 26, which killed 26 worshippers in Kuwait City. Fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) said they carried out the attack. Kuwait’s mandatory DNA testing would be illegal in Europe, where the Court of Human Rights ruled that Britain's so-called "blanket and indiscriminate" storage of DNA data violated the right to privacy. So can countries balance the need for security and privacy?
