    Groups of scientists tasked with identifying pandemic-prone microbes were stretched too far and thin -- Rohit Chitale, an epidemiologist at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, says the explosion of COVID-19 reflects a global failure to adequately invest in prevention. “There’s too much emphasis on treating infectious diseases after the fact,” argues Chitale, who is program manager of DARPA’s surveillance effort, called Preventing Emerging Pathogenic Threats (PREEMPT). Early detection efforts, in contrast, “are very poorly funded,” he says. Olival notes that PREDICT received approximately $200 million dollars over its decade-long life span—which is a tiny fraction of the $2 trillion...

    LANSING, MI - When Rudy Giuliani and his witnesses challenged election results last week in front of the House Oversight Committee, nobody testified under oath. The same was true the day before with election challengers in the Senate Oversight Committee. That pattern changed Tuesday during three hours of sworn testimony from Chris Thomas, a former state elections director who served as an elections advisor to Detroit this fall. **SNIP** Despite the challenge, the level of mistakes were minor and should not be confused with widespread fraud, Thomas said. The number of ballots in question is negligible, Thomas said, considering the...

    President Donald Trump told a Fox News reporter that he believes “the case” for election fraud “has been made” before the American people, and now it will be a process of prosecuting this case, apparently in state legislatures, courtrooms, and potentially before the Supreme Court of the United States.The Fox News reporter asked the president, “Are you looking to try to change the outcome of the election, or try to make a case to the American people that it wasn’t a fair election?”“Well I think case has already been made, if you look at the polls,” said the President, interjecting....

    I did not watch the Benghazi hearings, unlike many others, in hopes of catching Secretary Clinton out, with my ears perked up for some admission that could sink her presidential ambitions. Secretary Clinton did not disappoint in her performance on Thursday. She admitted to no wrongdoing, nor to breaking any laws. Mistakes were made by others, the fault lies elsewhere. chilling K.T.

    Government investigators say IRS employees erased computer backup tapes a month after officials discovered that thousands of emails related to the tax agency’s tea party scandal had been lost. The investigators, however, concluded that employees erased the tapes by mistake, not as part of an attempt to destroy evidence.The report is likely to fuel conspiracy theories among conservatives who say the IRS has obstructed congressional investigations into the scandal. …

    U.S. and Afghan officials reportedly have reached a tentative agreement on a critical security pact -- which would include President Obama writing a letter to the Afghan people acknowledging mistakes during the "war on terror." According to Reuters, an Afghan spokesman said Tuesday that Obama agreed to write the letter, to be presented with the draft security pact at a meeting of tribal elders later this week. The New York Times, citing a spokesman for Afghan President Hamid Karzai, reported that Secretary of State John Kerry proposed the letter in a conversation with Karzai. Karzai asked that Obama sign it,...

    L E B A N O N, Tenn. A 61-year-old man was shot to death by police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug raid on the wrong house. Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door. The two officers, 25-year-old Kyle Shedran and 24-year-old Greg Day, were placed on administrative leave with pay. “They need to get rid of those men, boys with toys,” said Adams’ 70-year-old widow, Loraine. John Adams was watching television when...

    N.Korea Climbs Down Over Anti-Market Reforms A North Korean source has shed more light on an apology by Premier Kim Yong-il on Feb. 5 which apparently acknowledged that the currency reform in late December went disastrously wrong. The source said Kim, not to be confused with leader Kim Jong-il, read out an hour-long statement before village chiefs and other party officials at the People's Palace of Culture in Pyongyang on Monday morning. "I sincerely apologize for having caused great pain to the people by recklessly enforcing the latest currency reform without making sufficient preparations or considering the circumstances," the source...

    But he still defends worker evacuation: After nearly two months of public vitriol against his decision to evacuate pump operators before Hurricane Katrina, Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard has admitted to "flaws" in the parish disaster plan, conceding that workers were sent "too far away" to be able to restart pumps before flooding ruined thousands of homes. In an advertisement financed with parish money and scheduled to be published in Sunday's Times-Picayune, Broussard again says dispatching 1,100 essential employees, including pump workers, to shelters in Washington Parish was the right call as a "potentially catastrophic Category 5 storm" aimed at...
