  • White House Seeks to Keep Some Clinton Emails Secret

    10/30/2015 3:26:00 PM PDT · by Libloather · 53 replies
    WASHINGTON — The White House will try to block the release of a handful of emails between President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, citing longstanding precedent invoked by presidents of both parties to keep presidential communications confidential, officials said Friday. The State Department discovered the emails between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton as part of its effort to release the former secretary’s emails, several thousand more of which were scheduled to be made public on Friday. Mr. Obama’s correspondence was forwarded for review to the White House, which has decided against release. That decision could intensify...

According to a White House press release, the Secret Service just discovered President Barack Obama trying to pull his own head off, but they managed to stop him before he succeeded. Wow.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said the IG updated Congress on the emails, saying at least two emails stored on Clintons private server were Top Secret/SCI level. The IG had already informed Congress that the server contained classified emails, but the level of classification on these specific emails is a new development that will further intensify the investigation.

Barring an 11th hour compromise when the Senate returns to session May 31, a much-debated provision of the Patriot Act and some other lesser known surveillance tools will sunset at midnight that day. The change also would have a major impact on the FBI, which uses the Patriot Act and the other...

    here was growing evidence today that some kind of hypersonic jet may have been the cause of the mysterious bangs heard over both the UK and the US on Saturday. Engineering expert Dr Bhupendra Khandelwa told MailOnline he believes the loud, repetitive bangs sounded like an experimental jet engine called a pulse detonation engine (PDE). Other theories - including weather phenomenon or meteors and space junk 'burning up' in the atmosphere - have been largely dismissed by experts. And a video showing a PDE being tested in a lab appears to add weight to Dr Khandelwa's claim.

Outlets with representation span the entire video games journalism universe and include Polygon, Ars Technica, Wired, Eurogamer, Destructoid, Kotaku, Joystiq, TechRadar, and many other well-known brands in games publishing.

    Over 600,000 Facebook users have taken part in a psychological experiment organized by the social media company, without their knowledge. Facebook altered the tone of the users news feed to highlight either positive or negative posts from their friends, which were seen on their news feed.

The results show emotional contagion, wrote a team of Facebook scientists, in a paper published by the PNAS journalProceedings of the National Academy of Scientists of the United States.

    Over the objections of reputed gang figure Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow's lawyers, a federal judge has ordered that the government's evidence in a sweeping criminal case that includes political corruption charges against state Sen. Leland Yee must be kept secret for now. U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer imposed the restrictions Monday on every lawyer and defendant in the case, finding the material should be kept under wraps while both sides prepare for trial. Breyer rejected the free speech arguments of Chow's lawyer, J. Tony Serra, who insisted he should be able to reveal evidence to combat the government's public charges.

    Light arms supplied by the United States are flowing to "moderate" Syrian rebel factions in the south of the country and U.S. funding for months of further deliveries has been approved by Congress, according U.S. and European security officials. The weapons, most of which are moving to non-Islamist Syrian rebels via Jordan, include a variety of small arms, as well as some more powerful weapons, such as anti-tank rockets. The deliveries do not include weapons such as shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles, known as MANPADs, which could shoot down military or civilian aircraft, the officials said. (Snip)

    "123456 is finally getting some time in the spotlight as the world's worst password, after spending years in the shadow of password. Security firm Splashdata, which every year compiles a list of the most common stolen passwords, found that 123456 moved into the number one slot in 2013. Previously, password had dominated the rankings. The change in leadership is largely thanks to Adobe, whose major security breach in October affected upwards of 48 million users. A list of passwords from the Adobe breach had 123456 on top, followed by 123456789 and password. The magnitude of the breach had a major...
