40% decline in polar bears in Alaska, western Canada heightens concern 21 Nov 2014 The number of polar bears in eastern Alaska and western Canada has declined by 40%, according to a scientific study that raises more questions about the impact of global warming on the creature that has become the symbol of some of its worst effects. The study, published in the current issue of Ecological Applications, was carried out by scientists from several groups, including the U.S. Geological Survey and Environment Canada, that tagged and released polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea from 2001 to 2010. The bear population in the area shrank to about 900 in 2010, down from about 1,600 in 2004, according to their findings. Perhaps even more worrisome, just two of 80 polar bear cubs that the international team tracked between 2003 and 2007 survived, according to the study.

In Secret, Obama Extended U.S. Military Role in Afghanistan Combat

November 22, 2014 by legitgov

In Secret, Obama Extended U.S. Military Role in Afghanistan Combat --New secret authorization also allows American jets, bombers and drones to support Afghan troops on combat missions 21 Nov 2014 President Obama signed a secret order in recent weeks authorizing a more expansive mission for the military in Afghanistan in 2015 than originally planned, a move that ensures American troops will have a direct role in fighting in the war-ravaged country for at least another year. In an announcement in the White House Rose Garden in May, Mr. Obama said that the American military would have no combat role in Afghanistan next year, and that the missions for the 9,800 troops remaining in the country would be limited to training Afghan forces and to hunting the "remnants of Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh]." But Mr. Obama's secret order allows American forces to carry out missions against the Taliban and other militant groups threatening American troops or the Afghan government, a broader mission than the president described to the public earlier this year, according to several administration, military and congressional officials with knowledge of the decision.

November 22, 2014 by legitgov

Plague kills 40 people in Madagascar 21 Nov 2014 An outbreak of the plague has killed 40 people out of 119 confirmed cases in Madagascar since late August and there is a risk of the disease spreading rapidly in the capital, the World Health Organisation has said. So far two cases and one death have been recorded in the capital Antananarivo but those figures could climb quickly due to "the city's high population density and the weakness of the healthcare system," WHO warned. "The situation is further complicated by the high level of resistance to deltamethrin (an insecticide used to control spread fleas) that has been observed in the country," it added.

White House, C.I.A. Working Together to Thwart Release of Agency's Torture Report - Senate Democrats

November 21, 2014 by legitgov

White House, C.I.A. Working Together to Thwart Release of Agency's Torture Report - Senate Democrats 21 Nov 2014 In a tense confrontation with President Obama's closest adviser on Thursday, a group of Senate Democrats accused the White House of trying to censor significant details in a voluminous report on the use of torture by the Central Intelligence Agency. During a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill with Denis R. McDonough, the White House chief of staff, the senators said that the White House was siding with the C.I.A. and trying to thwart negotiations over the report's release. The negotiations have dragged on for months because of a dispute over the C.I.A.'s demand that pseudonyms of agency officers [war criminals] be deleted from the report. The C.I.A., supported by the White House, has argued that even without using the real names of the officers, their identities could still be revealed.

House Republicans sue over Obama's healthcare law 21 Nov 2014 Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday filed a long-anticipated lawsuit challenging the implementation of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law over employer-based coverage and payments to insurers, according to court documents.

It also challenges a provision of the law that authorizes Treasury payments to health insurance companies.

The action will be finalized Friday with the signing of a presidential memorandum at a rally in Las Vegas.

Democrats back Obama as he readies immigration plan 20 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama planned on Thursday to ease the threat of deportation for about 4.7 million illegal immigrants, as leading Democrats lined up behind the U.S. leader in the face of Republican attacks.

The president will need the support of Democratic lawmakers to fend off Republican attempts, either next month or next year, to pass legislation undercutting the executive action.

Takata airbag victims looked like they had been shot or stabbed

Takata airbag victims looked like they had been shot or stabbed 20 Nov 2014 When police got to the scene of a minor car accident in Alhambra, California in September 2013, they thought the driver, Hai Ming Xu, had been shot in the face. A similar conclusion was reached by Orlando police responding to an accident a year later -- they believed that the driver, Hien Thi Tran, had been the victim of a stabbing that might have caused the accident. But what allegedly killed both drivers was the device put in their cars to protect them - an airbag manufactured by Takata. Lawsuits and police reports say these airbags have exploded with such force that they sent shrapnel flying into the car's drivers, fatally wounding Xu and Tran.

Senators slam industry's response to 'live grenade' air bags 20 Nov 2014 An executive from Japan's Takata Corp apologized at a Senate hearing on Thursday to the victims of defective air bags that can rupture upon deployment and shoot metal shards into cars, but stopped short of taking full responsibility for deaths linked to the scandal. The hearing by the Senate Commerce Committee also focused on whether regulators [sic] and the auto industry have yet captured the full scope or the exact cause of the defect that has affected millions of vehicles and been linked to at least five deaths...Democratic Senator Ed Markey said the incident shows the need for a nationwide recall. "Every single one of these Takata air bags could be a ticking time bomb," he said. [Takata terrorist on future killer air-bag recall: 'It's difficult for me to answer yes or no' --Takata's airbags kill and maim more than ISIS, but the Wall Street-owned US government won't force a nationwide recall.]

Obama's immigration plan will offer millions of work permits, facilitate visas for foreign high-tech workers 20 Nov 2014 President Obama will announce new plans to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation in a prime-time address on Thursday evening, opening a political fight with Republicans who believe those plans exceed Obama's powers as president. In his 8 p.m. address, Obama is expected to say he will stop deportations for a certain group of illegal immigrants: parents whose children are already U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents...There are about 3.7 million illegal immigrants who meet those criteria, according to a report from the Migration Policy Institute. Under Obama's plan, some of them would also be able to apply for work permits, which now are available only to immigrants with legal status. In addition, Obama is expected to announce more efforts to protect the U.S. border and to facilitate visas for foreigners who pursue science, technology, engineering and math degrees in the United States. [Too bad Obama isn't helping US students with their college loan burdens, instead of providing incentives for freeloading American corporations to pay low wages to foreign high-tech workers.]

CIA wants to destroy thousands of internal emails covering spy operations and other activities 20 Nov 2014 A CIA plan to erase tens of thousands of its internal emails -- including those sent by virtually all covert and counterterrorism officers after they leave the agency -- is drawing fire from Senate Intelligence Committee members concerned that it would wipe out key records of some of the agency's most controversial operations [aka war crimes; torture; the 9/11 inside job; creation and perpetuation of al-CIAduh and I-CIA-SIS]. The agency proposal, which has been tentatively approved by the National Archives, "could allow for the destruction of crucial documentary evidence regarding the CIA's activities," Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein and ranking minority member Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., wrote in a letter to Margaret Hawkins, the director of records and management services at the archives.
