Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit.

    Take a peek inside Google's "secretive" data centers, without revealing your identity to the outside world, as well.

     The Internet giant is allowing all Web users to take a peek at the data centers which process search requests, sort email, and store YouTube videos via an online gallery, according to the Associated Press.
    Visitors should visit "Where the Internet Lives"  and they will find photos from data centers in the United States, Finland, and Belgium.
    None of the data centers are built near the company's hub in Mountain View. More data centers in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Chile are on the way, the news source reported.
    The nearest West Coast data center is in The Dalles, Oregon.
    Google needs to sort data and aggregate information for 1 billion users, the news source reported.
