July 6, 2013 by legitgov

A Disease Without a Cure Spreads Quietly in the West 05 Jul 2013 Coccidioidomycosis, known as "cocci," is an insidious airborne fungal disease in which microscopic spores in the soil take flight on the wind or even a mild breeze to lodge in the moist habitat of the lungs and, in the most extreme instances, spread to the bones, the skin, the eyes or the brain. The infection [valley fever], which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has labeled "a silent epidemic," is striking more people each year, with more than 20,000 reported cases annually throughout the Southwest, especially in California and Arizona. Many scientists believe that the uptick in infections is related to changing climate patterns global warming.

Three Latin American leftist leaders offer asylum to Snowden 06 Jul 2013 Bolivia offered asylum on Saturday to former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden, joining leftist allies Venezuela and Nicaragua in defiance of Washington, which is demanding his arrest for divulging details of secret U.S. surveillance programs. Snowden, 30, is believed to be holed up in the transit area of Moscow's Sheremetyevo international airport and has been trying to find a country that would take him since he landed from Hong Kong on June 23. Bolivian President Evo Morales had said earlier this week that he would consider granting asylum to Snowden. But he took a harder line on Saturday, angered that some European countries banned his plane from their airspace this week on suspicion it carried Snowden.

Boeing 777 crashes while landing at San Francisco airport 06 Jul 2013 A Boeing 777 jetliner crashed and burst into flames at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday after a flight across the Pacific Ocean from South Korea. Early reports said at least two people were killed and dozens injured, but the full extent of the casualties was not clear. The plane, Asiana Airlines Flight 214 from Seoul, came to rest in a field beside the runway -- missing its tail, spewing black smoke and with most of the top of the fuselage ripped or burned off. Photos and video from the scene showed at least some passengers sliding down the emergency chutes and walking away. Federal investigators said it was too early to determine a cause, but sources told NBC News that the pilot did not make a distress call before landing, and that it appeared the plane came in short and clipped a seawall with its tail.

Non of the wisdom nor the attempts for democratic reform and more open society we gained just after the collapse will stick under the reign of this new governing.

U.S. Postal Service Logging All Mail for Law Enforcement 04 Jul 2013 As the world focuses on the high-tech spying of the National Security Agency, the misplaced card offers a rare glimpse inside the seemingly low-tech but prevalent snooping of the United States Postal Service. A longtime surveillance system is called mail covers, a forerunner of a vastly more expansive effort, the Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program, in which Postal Service computers photograph the exterior of every piece of paper mail that is processed in the United States -- about 160 billion pieces last year. It is not known how long the government saves the images. Together, the two programs show that postal mail is subject to the same kind of scrutiny that the National Security Agency has given to telephone calls and e-mail.
