    Insurance company Geico suffered a data breach earlier this year that exposed customers’ driver’s license numbers for more than a month, according to a data breach notice filed with the attorney general of California. First reported by TechCrunch, Geico says in the notice that it has fixed the security issue that led to the breach. “We recently determined that between January 21, 2021 and March 1, 2021, fraudsters used information about you – which they acquired elsewhere – to obtain unauthorized access to your driver’s license number through the online sales system on our website,” the notice reads. “We have...

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather said Wednesday on CNN’s “Tonight” that it is common sense to have a similar process for getting a driver’s license or a gun. When asked about gun legislation, Rather said, “Poll after poll shows a rather sizable majority of Americans in favor of having, say, a delay in when you can buy a gun, a three-day delay. You buy it, you pick it up two or three days later, together with background checks. This is very popular. But year after year, decade after decade, it doesn’t get put into law. What is needed is...
  • License-Plate Scans Aid Crime-Solving but Spur Little Privacy Debate

    License-plate readers are feeding immense databases with details on Americans’ driving habits, helping solve crimes despite little public awareness about the breadth of the data collected or how it is used. The vast network of automated license-plate scanners, which has been growing for decades, makes it nearly impossible to drive anywhere in the U.S. without being observed. The scanners first appeared on telephone poles and police cars, then on toll plazas and bridges, and in parking lots. Today, scanners are routinely placed on tow trucks and municipal garbage trucks, gathering images of plates on cars they pass while making their...
  • U.S. Treasury Department gives Chevron new license to wind down Venezuela activities by June 3

    11/17/2020 10:33:23 AM PST · by Libloather · 1 replies
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Treasury Department on Tuesday issued a new license to Chevron Corp, the last major U.S. oil company still operating in Venezuela, giving it until June 3 to wind down its joint ventures in the OPEC member nation. The United States last year imposed sanctions barring imports of Venezuelan oil and transactions made in U.S. dollars with Venezuela's state-run oil company PDVSA, a move designed to starve the country of oil dollars and oust socialist President Nicolas Maduro. Chevron has had a special U.S. operating license exempting it from sanctions on Venezuela's vital oil sector since...

    Police identified a 30-year-old man as the suspect in a fatal shooting during dueling protests Saturday in downtown Denver. Matthew Robert Dolloff remained in jail Sunday without bond on suspicion of first-degree murder in the shooting, jail records show. Dolloff was working as a private security guard for Denver television station 9News when the shooting occurred, the television station has said. Pinkerton, the security company 9News said it contracted with for the protest, did not immediately reply to questions from The Post sent Sunday morning. While Pinkerton had an active license to employ security guards in Denver, officials have no...

    This story is getting better and better — for those who enjoy David vs. Goliath contests where Goliath gets a faceful of cow manure from David. That’s what Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer must be feeling like today. The 77-year old barber, Karl Manke, who is defying her executive orders to keep his business closed is beset on all sides by the state. He was taken to court by the state who asked a judge to order Manke to close his doors. The judge refused. Then, Whitmer sicced the Department of Health on him. He refused to comply. Finally, after the...

    Oklahoma State Senator Nathan Dahm proposed a new license plate that would feature President Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” and the slogan he’s now using, “Keep America Great.” The plates would be unique to Oklahoma. “This is a great way that people can support America and support those ideas of keeping America great,” Dahm said.Dahm says the beauty of the plate is that it’s a specialty. If you don’t want it, you don’t have to buy it.

    NY Post ^ | 8/23/19
    Leave it to Gov. Cuomo to come up with a wacky Rube Goldberg-like scheme, even for something as small-time as license plates. Cuomo this week announced that the state is changing the style of its plates, and everyone with vehicles more than 10 years old will have to get one. Oh, it’ll cost you an extra $25 — plus $20 more to keep the same plate numbers. **SNIP** New Yorkers get to vote on one of five possible designs, four that show the Statue of Liberty and one featuring the new Tappan Zee — er, Gov. Mario M. Cuomo —...

    A Pennsylvania state legislator wants to revive the registration sticker two years after it was discarded as a cost-saving measure. A bill before the House Transportation Committee would not only bring back the tiny sticker, but tie it to state vehicle inspections as well, according to the proposed legislation introduced by Berks County Republican Rep. Barry Jozwiak. The Department of Transportation stopped issuing the stickers in 2017, a product of legislation passed years earlier. The move was projected to save more than $3 million. Jozwiak said Tuesday at a committee hearing that the loss of the stickers has given police...

    NEW YORK — A state lawmaker is proposing a change to New York’s gun laws to allow authorities to search social media for potential red flags before approving a handgun license. State Senator Kevin Parker’s bill would mandate that applicants provide investigators with their Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram passwords and access to their Google, Yahoo and Bing searches. The Brooklyn Democrat wants investigators to look at the last three years of an applicant’s social media postings and a year of their search histories for “any good cause for the denial of a license,” such as racial slurs, threats of...

    Texas' agriculture commissioner says he will back a Confederate group's latest attempt to sell specialty license plates, because "there's no profit in hiding our history." The Sons of Confederate Veterans' Texas chapter proposed a license plate in March that features a rebel soldier carrying a Texas regiment's special flag at a Civil War battle, the Dallas Morning News reported. The specialty tag won't include the Confederate battle flag. Commissioner Sid Miller wrote a letter of support in March that said the Department of Agriculture would sponsor the plate. On Monday, he said he sees nothing wrong with the group's push...

    President Trump's suggestion that NBC should potentially have its broadcast license challenged has prompted a wave of condemnation from both sides of the aisle, with many saying that such a move would violate the First Amendment. Trump lashed out at NBC News on Wednesday after the outlet reported that Trump had suggested increasing the nation's nuclear arms stockpile during a meeting with top Cabinet officials. "With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!" Trump tweeted.

    Question: "Is eternal security a "license" to sin?" Answer: The most frequent objection to the doctrine of eternal security is that it supposedly allows people to live any way that they want and still be saved. While this may be "technically" true, it is not true in reality. A person who has truly been redeemed by Jesus Christ will not live a life characterized by continuous, willful sin. We must draw a distinction between how a Christian should live and what a person must do in order to receive salvation. The Bible is clear that salvation is by grace alone,...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri senators voted early Wednesday to give residents the option of whether to get a driver's license that complies with a federal identification requirement, which would allow people to board airplanes and enter military bases. Missouri is one of only five states that doesn't comply or have an extension to comply with a 2005 federal law that established tougher licensing requirements in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Lawmakers have pushed back on the stringent proof-of-identity requirements under the law, known as the Real ID Act, citing privacy issues. But after hours of debate...

    A Canadian man's license plate can forget about living long and prospering. After receiving multiple complaints, Manitoba resident Nick Troller was forced to hand over his license plate that read "ASIMIL8," a reference to the Borg, a popular alien race from Star Trek. The Borg are villainous cybernetic organisms who assimilate other societies into their own. The phrases "we are the Borg" and "resistance is futile" are printed on the license plate's frame.

    On the day that California officials implemented a controversial law that allows undocumented residents to obtain driver’s licenses, DMV offices throughout the state were packed with immigrants looking to take advantage of the opportunity. Two years after the implementation of AB 60 on Jan. 1, 2015, an estimated 806,000 undocumented residents have received driver’s licenses, according to Department of Motor Vehicles statistics this month. About 14,000 of these licenses were issued in November alone, the DMV said.
