July 17, 2015 by legitgov

ISIS says it launched rocket attack on Egypt navy vessel | 17 July 2015 | ISIS [I-CIA-SIS] affiliate said Thursday it fired a rocket at an Egyptian naval vessel in the Mediterranean Sea near the coast of Israel and the Gaza Strip.

Photographs distributed online by the group appeared to show a rocket heading toward a ship and setting it ablaze on impact.

Secretive military operation 'Jade Helm' gets underway across seven states

Secretive military operation 'Jade Helm' gets underway across seven states --Jade Helm 15, a two-month, seven state war simulation began on Wednesday in central Texas --The Army has said that exercise locations were selected to replicate foreign combat zones | 16 July 2015 | The U.S. military began its secretive two-month, seven-state military exercise on Wednesday in Texas, as conspiracy theorists prepared for the worst. 'Jade Helm 15', as the war simulation is known, is acknowledged by the Army as unique given its size and scope, but they insist there is nothing to fear. Parts of Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Texas and Utah, were selected for the operation as their topography is ideal to replicate diverse foreign combat zones. However, suspicions intensified after some conservative political websites seized on an Army map that labeled Texas and Utah as 'hostile' for the purposes of the simulation.

Polar bear metabolism cannot cope with ice loss

July 16, 2015 by legitgov

Polar bear metabolism cannot cope with ice loss --The Arctic mammals may not survive the ongoing loss of their hunting grounds. | 16 July 2015 | Polar bears' metabolism does not slow very much during the summer months when sea ice melts and food becomes scarce, according to a study published today (16 July) in Science. With the Arctic warming faster than the global average, the finding does not bode well for the bears (Ursus maritimus), who use the ice as a hunting ground. The Arctic ice is melting earlier each summer and freezing later each winter, limiting the animals' chances to catch seals. With no way to save energy, polar bears are unlikely to survive the continued sea-ice loss caused by rising temperatures, says Merav Ben-David, a wildlife ecologist at the University of Wyoming in Laramie and a co-author of the study.

Car explodes near high-security Saudi prison, driver killed: ministry

Car explodes near high-security Saudi prison, driver killed: ministry | 16 July 2015 | A car bomb exploded at a checkpoint near Saudi Arabia's highest security prison at sunset on Thursday, killing the driver and wounding two security officials, the interior ministry said. State television said the driver was a teenager on the run after killing his uncle. He triggered the blast after officers surrounded his vehicle south of the capital, Riyadh. The use of an explosive so close to a prison holding hundreds of Islamist detainees will stoke fears of a growing threat of militancy in the world's top oil exporter [and beheaders].

The verdict came down nearly three years to the day after the massacre in the movie theater took place.

But a witness said she saw a shooting at a different location -- a building that houses military recruiting offices. Gina Mule, a server at a restaurant, said she saw a man who'd been in a silver convertible Mustang, firing a "high-powered rifle" at the recruiting offices.

House Dem Leader Pelosi Backs Iran Nuclear Deal

July 16, 2015 by walden9

House Dem Leader Pelosi Backs Iran Nuclear Deal | 16 July 2015 | House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday the nuclear deal negotiated by the United States, Iran and Western powers "will have my strong support." "I'm very optimistic about our ability to support the president" on the agreement, Pelosi told reporters at her weekly news conference. The Obama administration has launched a full-court press to win over skeptical Democrats in Congress, and Pelosi's support is a key gain. The historic agreement would curb Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.

Syriza and Sanders: "Just Say 'No'" to Neo-liberalism

July 16, 2015 by walden9

Syriza and Sanders: "Just Say 'No'" to Neo-liberalism, by Michael Rectenwald | 16 July 2015 | Hopes for Syriza's negotiations with the banking troika in the EU simmered and even boiled over among elements of the left, especially after the vaunted "No" referendum vote suggested that the Greeks would not succumb to another wave of austerity measures but would instead stand firm, even if this meant potentially leaving the EU. We have seen these hopes dashed by the subsequent "negotiations," in which Tsipras seemed to have negotiated backwards, arriving at an agreement that was worse than the one rejected by the Greek voters in the referendum vote...It is in this context, the context of capitalism and its decadent state as acted out on a world scale, that we must consider the candidacy of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States.

July 16, 2015 by legitgov

Black Woman Found Dead in Texas Cell After Traffic Stop Arrest | 15 July 2015 | Sandra Bland, a 28-year-old black woman from the Chicago suburbs, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her cell Monday morning following a traffic stop. Police claim Ms. Bland assaulted an officer during the stop, and Bland's family is claiming foul play after the discovery of her body in a Texas cell. Thus far, it appears that Bland, who hails from Naperville, Ill., was in Waller County, Texas to begin a new job. According to the family, Waller County is infamous for its racism against blacks and question how her death could be ruled a suicide shortly after authorities at the Waller County jail said she was alive as of 8:00 a.m. last Monday morning.

Welcome to Iceworld: Stunning first hi-def image of Pluto reveals huge 11,000 foot mountains made of water ice and a geologically active surface | 15 July 2015 | The first ever high-resolution image of Pluto has been beamed back to Earth revealing 11,000ft (3,350 metre) mountains made of water ice. The remarkable image, released alongside new pictures of Pluto's moons Charon and Hydra, provides evidence that geological activity is still taking place on the icy world. Scientists were shocked to see mountains as high as those in the Rockies that likely formed 100 million years ago - mere youngsters relative to the 4.56-billion-year age of the solar system. Nasa says they may still be in the process of building.

July 16, 2015 by legitgov

Greek MPs pass austerity bill as Athens police clash with protesters | 15 July 2015 | A draconian austerity bill designed to pave the way for a new bailout of Greece has been passed in the Athens parliament against the backdrop of deep splits in the ruling Syriza party and the most serious violence on the city's streets for months. Teargas filled the air outside the parliament as the debate took place with riot police clashing with anarchists and demonstrations against the bailout deal were joined by members of Syriza's own base. Greece's prime minister and Syriza's leader, Alexis Tsipras, has been under pressure from other eurozone states to ensure that the raft of tax rises and spending cuts was passed.

Greek Lawmakers Approve Terms of Bailout Plan

July 15, 2015 by walden9

Greek Lawmakers Approve Terms of Bailout Plan | 15 July 2015 | After a marathon session that stretched into the early hours of Thursday, Greek lawmakers narrowly approved a package of harsh austerity measures and economic policy changes that were required by its creditors as the terms of a $94 billion bailout package. In Greece's through-the-looking-glass [?!?] politics, the vote was seen as a victory for the country's prime minister, Alexis Tsipras. He was elected on an anti-austerity platform but strongly urged lawmakers to approve the bailout, even after Greeks voted down a similar deal just over a week ago in a referendum he called for.

Officials told Jade Helm 15 is modeled after French resistance to Nazi occupation during World War II; military personnel to play role of Nazis [Gee, when/if this drill 'goes live,' it could get *really ugly.*] In Texas, a Military Exercise Is Met by Some With Suspicion | 15 July 2015 | Jade Helm 15, an eight-week military exercise that has generated paranoia concerns for months fueled by conservative bloggers and Internet postings, began Wednesday in Texas and six other states: Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Utah. The Army's Green Berets, Navy SEALs and other Special Operations troops will be conducting drills on private property, military bases and some public facilities. According to military documents, more than 1,200 service members will participate in the operation in Texas, in more than a dozen mostly small towns and rural counties. Local officials who have been briefed on the exercise say it is modeled after the French resistance to Nazi occupation during World War II. It calls for some military personnel to play the role of the occupiers and for others to work undetected as part of the resistance. [Or, the feds could just simulate the US/Kiev Nazi occupation of Ukraine.]

Under a deal between Iran and major world powers in Vienna on Tuesday, Iran agreed to long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West suspected was aimed at creating an atomic bomb. Iran has said its work is purely peaceful [unlike Israel's].

Federal taskforce increasing focus on domestic terrorism | 15 July 2015 | Preventing domestic terror attacks like the one an Adams, Massachusetts, man is accused of planning has become a big focus for federal investigators.

Number of Black Children in Poverty May Have Eclipsed Whites for First Time on Record

July 15, 2015 by walden9

Number of Black Children in Poverty May Have Eclipsed Whites for First Time on Record | 14 July 2015 | The share of American children living in poverty has declined slightly since 2010 as the nation’s economy has improved. But the poverty rate has changed little for black children, the group most likely to be living in poverty, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data...Overall, 20% of children in the U.S., or 14.7 million, lived in poverty in 2013 - down from 22%, or 16.3 million, in 2010. (Poverty in 2013 was defined as living in a household with an annual income below $23,624 for a family of four with two related children.) During this period, the poverty rate declined for Hispanic, white and Asian children. Among black children, however, the rate held steady at about 38%. Black children were almost four times as likely as white or Asian children to be living in poverty in 2013, and significantly more likely than Hispanic children.
