Judge voids controversial Wisconsin union law 26 May 2011 A Wisconsin judge on Thursday voided a controversial Republican-backed law restricting the collective bargaining rights of public sector unions.

May 26, 2011 by legitgov

Earthquake, not tsunami, may have damaged cooling system at No. 3 reactor 26 May 2011 Data from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant indicates that the March 11 earthquake--not the tsunami--damaged piping for the emergency core cooling system at the No. 3 reactor, leading to a meltdown, experts said. Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant's operator, has insisted that a tsunami far exceeding expectations led to the accident at the plant, and that shaking from the magnitude-9.0 earthquake did not cause serious damage to crucial equipment... However, data released on May 24 by TEPCO points to the possibility of quake damage to the high-pressure coolant injection system, which is part of the ECCS and critical in preventing crises at nuclear power plants, experts said.

There's a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says

May 26, 2011 by legitgov

There's a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says 25 May 2011 You may think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) says it’s worse than you’ve heard. Congress is set to reauthorize three controversial provisions of the surveillance law as early as Thursday. But Wyden says that what Congress will renew is a mere fig leaf for a far broader legal interpretation of the Patriot Act that the government keeps to itself -- entirely in secret. Worse, there are hints that the government uses this secret interpretation to gather what one Patriot-watcher calls a "dragnet" for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.

MSNBC suspends Schultz over Ingraham remark 25 May 2011 Left-leaning Ed Schultz has been suspended from MSNBC for referring to fellow host [Reichwing maggot, and I'm not going to suspend myself] Laura Ingraham as a "right-wing slut" and "talk slut" on his syndicated show Tuesday. "And what are the Republicans thinking about?" Schultz said. "They're not thinking about their next-door neighbor. They're just thinking about how much this is going to cost. President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday, but you know what they're talking about, like this right-wing slut, what's her name? Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she's a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama's doing it, they're working him over." [*Exactly.*]

EU Nuclear Stress Tests to Exclude Preventive Measures From Terrorist Attacks 25 May 2011 The European Union agreed on parameters for stress tests on nuclear power plants that the bloc wants to conduct to reassess safety risks after a crisis in Japan, where an earthquake and a tsunami crippled atomic reactors.
