Here's what it's like to visit Whittier, Alaska — the 'town under one roof'

  • How small is Whittier?
  • About 217 people live there, and it's accessible only by boat or a one-way, one-lane tunnel.
  • But the strangest thing about this town is that nearly all of its residents live in the same building, Begich Towers, a Cold War-era army barracks built in 1974.
  • A police station, grocery store, clinic, church, convenience store, and school are all housed within the structure.
  • Begich Towers also has a bed and breakfast, and guests are welcome to come and observe how life goes on in the near one-structure town.
  • Reddit user HyruleanHero1988 was curious to check out Whittier, so he visited the town during his last vacation.
  • His girlfriend took plenty of photos and she shared them with us along with their observations of the peculiar town.

‘Right to be forgotten’ used to remove medical negligence link

  • At issue were links to a website that contains an unofficial blacklist of suspended doctors.
  • The judge took issue with the way Google’s search results still returned a link to the outdated information on this unofficial blacklist site, which suggested that she shouldn’t be treating people in her capacity as a doctor.
  • Google and the Dutch data privacy watchdog, Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, initially rejected the request on the grounds that the surgeon’s continued probation meant that the search results were still relevant, but this decision was overturned last July by the district court.The ruling has only come to light now due to a dispute about whether the ruling should be made public.
  • The EU’s “right to be forgotten” was first established in May 2014 and since then has resulted in the removal of just over one million URLs from Google’s search results.
