  • The new way police are surveilling you: Calculating your threat ‘score’

    The new way police are surveilling you: Calculating your threat ‘score’ - The Washington Post A national debate has played out over mass surveillance by the National Security Agency, a new generation of technology such as the Beware software being used in Fresno has given local law enforcement officers unprecedented power to peer into the lives of citizens. Nabarro said the fact that only Intrado — not the police or the public — knows how Beware tallies its scores is disconcerting. He also worries that the system might mistakenly increase someone’s threat level by misinterpreting innocuous activity on social...

    A U.S. intelligence bulletin warned today that the violent outrage aimed at U.S. embassies spawned by a movie mocking the Prophet Mohammed could be spread to America by extremist groups eager to "exploit anger." The Joint Intelligence Bulletin issued by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security said "the risk of violence could increase both at home and abroad as the film continues to gain attention." "First responders should remain aware of the potential for spontaneous large crowds and protests that could overwhelm resources and should be vigilant for possible efforts to encourage peaceful protesters to commit acts of...
  • Shabbat Shalom---Noach---2011 [a peaceful Sabbath, Noah, Gen 6:9-11:32]

    10/28/2011 12:27:42 PM PDT · by patlin · 18 replies
    Noach 2011 While we normally consider Noach and his generation to be a prime example of how a society can so easily lose it all, there are additional and highly significant lessons and applications very relevant to our times. We are now still feeling the effects of the 'chamas', the me first philosophy, which led to the unscrupulous practices by so many, all too long, especially in the financial world. The ongoing grassroots social protests for no special reason, which have spread across North America, are reason enough for concern. The decay from the top has had a ripple effect...

    While Democrat Martha Coakley has raked in more than five times GOP rival Scott Browns donations, the underdog state senators fund raising is picking up steam in the final weeks of the race for U.S. Senate. Coakley, the states attorney general, yesterday announced shed raised $1 million in the last six weeks for a total of $5.2 million since her campaign began. Browns campaign has received $700,000 in the past six weeks - considerably higher than previous totals - putting his war chest just over the $1 million mark. There has been an explosion of interest in Scott Browns campaign...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) Eco-conscious customers who flock to one Washington store say they have chosen the environmentally friendly living shop because they know they are in little danger of being "greenwashed." "I can give you a ton of words that mean absolutely, positively nothing," said Daniel Velez, owner of Greater Goods, where the shelves are stocked only after careful, painstaking research. "The word natural. The word earth-friendly. It means nothing since it's not legally defined. Biodegradable, except in California, doesn't actually carry any weight of law." Around the world, there are few legal requirements companies must adhere to when marketing...

    WASHINGTON White House advisers pledged on Sunday to book administration officials on Fox News despite claims by the president's inner circle that the cable network is a GOP mouthpiece whose programming is geared toward making money. Last week, White House communications director Anita Dunn said Fox News operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party. On Sunday, Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama's chief of staff, said, It is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective. In response to the criticism, Fox News executive Michael Clemente on Sunday accused...

    Between the town hall meetings and the tea party rallies, millions of Americans are taking to the streets to protest a government gone berserk. They are angry and determined to take their country back. But there are snakes in the grass intent on using this movement to return to power, not the people, but the Republican establishment. If this happens we lose everything, including our country.

    WASHINGTON If you're planning a garage sale or organizing a church bazaar, you'd best beware: You could be breaking a new federal law. As part of a campaign called Resale Roundup, the federal government is cracking down on the secondhand sales of dangerous and defective products. The initiative, which targets toys and other products for children, enforces a new provision that makes it a crime to resell anything that's been recalled by its manufacturer.

    WASHINGTON After weeks of secretive talks, a bipartisan group in the Senate edged closer Monday to a health care compromise that omits a requirement for businesses to offer coverage to their workers and lacks a government insurance option that President Barack Obama favors, according to numerous officials. Like bills drafted by Democrats, the proposal under discussion by six members on the Senate Finance Committee would bar insurance companies from denying coverage to any applicant. Nor could insurers charge higher premiums on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions. But it jettisons other core Democratic provisions in a reach for bipartisanship...

    The message that popped into Laurie Gale's Facebook inbox last month seemed harmless enough -- a friend had seen a video of Ms. Gale and had sent a link so Ms. Gale could view it. The link led to a video site that prompted her to update her video software, which she did. "Within seconds, everything started shutting itself down," says Ms. Gale, a 37-year-old lamp-works artist from Versailles, Ky. Ms. Gale's new Dell Inspiron laptop had been infected with malicious software, or malware, that has spread through social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace. "I cried for an hour,"...

    Now that Obama is the president, fasten your seat belts. During his first year in office, and particularly during his first hundred days, we are about to witness the most prodigious output of legislation since 1981-2 (under Reagan), 1964-5 (under Johnson), and 1933-36 (under Roosevelt). The combination of top heavy Democratic majorities in Congress and a mood of public fear bordering on panic over the financial crisis and the looming depression will speed his legislation through a compliant Senate and House.We will enter his Administration as the United States, buoyed by an aggressive free market economy. We will exit his...
  • Buyers Beware: Current Blu-ray Players Won't Correctly Play Future Discs (HDTV)

    01/12/2008 11:34:47 AM PST · by LibWhacker · 64 replies · 747+ views
    Look, it will play *something*, just buy it already. After the past week, it seems more and more likely that Blu-ray will be the movie disc format of the future. But with the exception of the Playstation 3, current Blu-ray disc players were built without future-compatibility capabilities, so come this October owners won't be able to take advantage of features like Internet connectivity or enhanced interactivity (whatever that meansdetails are sketchy). "One key Blu-ray developer told BetaNews that although he builds discs for studios including Fox and Lionsgate, he did not buy a Blu-ray player for personal use." Regarding current...

    Remember President Carters 1979 Malaise Speech? Americans were losing faith in the countrys future, he said. They were closing the door on America's past. President Carter wanted to turn things around. He warned that rising materialism would not fill the emptiness of lives which have no confidence or purpose. He said it was a crisis of American spirit. In response to this crisis, Carter wanted the authority to ration gasoline, form an energy mobilization board, create a bureaucracy to guarantee that we would never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977, set oil import quotas and develop solar...

    He disappointed conservatives during his eight years in the Senate. Is there any reason to think this Washington insider and veteran trial lawyer would be any better as President? The frustration of conservatives is understandable. Faced with the prospects of Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, or Mitt Romney as the next Republican presidential candidate, many are pinning their hopes on former Senator Fred Thompson of Tennessee. Could this actor-politician be the new Ronald Reagan? Mainstream media types assure us that he is. His record suggests otherwise. This is the second time conservatives have pinned their hopes on Thompson. When he was...

    This week's UN "State of World Population" report warns that by 2008, more than half the world's population will live in urban areas. Shock, horror! But there is a serious point to the UN report: it wants to slow down urbanization by reducing birth rates. The only problem is that it provides no compelling reason for so doing. For years, the UN Population Fund has been seeking to justify its existence by issuing reports claiming that we must reduce birth rates in poor countries in order to achieve "sustainable development." While intuitively appealing, these ideas are not supported by evidence....

    Mitt Romney has one chance to become President of the United States. Because of his wealth and his political machine on the ground in early primary states, he has a chance to win the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, picking up momentum that could ultimately deliver him the Republican nomination. Therefore, consider this an open letter to the good folks of Iowa and New Hampshire: Don't be fooled by this political chameleon, this charlatan, this pretender to the throne. He's as phony as a three-dollar campaign promise. Romney has tried to "re-invent" himself as a presidential candidate following...
