In Secret, Court Vastly Broadens Powers of N.S.A.

In Secret, Court Vastly Broadens Powers of N.S.A. 07 Jul 2013 In more than a dozen classified rulings, the nation's surveillance court has created a secret body of law giving the National Security Agency the power to amass vast collections of data on Americans while pursuing not only terrorism suspects, but also people possibly involved in nuclear proliferation, espionage and cyberattacks, officials say. The rulings, some nearly 100 pages long, reveal that the court has taken on a much more expansive role by regularly assessing broad constitutional questions and establishing important judicial precedents, with almost no public scrutiny, according to current and former officials familiar with the court's classified decisions. The 11-member Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, known as the FISA court, was once mostly focused on approving case-by-case wiretapping orders. But since major changes in legislation and greater judicial oversight of intelligence operations were instituted six years ago, it has quietly become almost a parallel Supreme Court, serving as the ultimate arbiter on surveillance issues and delivering opinions that will most likely shape intelligence practices for years to come, the officials said.

DU Draws Heat for Plan to Present Bush with 'Improving Human Condition' Award

DU Draws Heat for Plan to Present Bush with 'Improving Human Condition' Award --University's Korbel School of International Studies selected former president [sic] for honor at 2013 annual dinner 03 Jul 2013 Hundreds of students, staffers and alumni are protesting the University of Denver's decision to honor former President unelected sociopath George W. Bush with an award traditionally recognizing recipients for their work on behalf of humanity. "It's been mostly just a lot of surprise," Seth Masket, associate professor of Political Science said of the award to be bestowed by the University's Josef Korbel School of International Studies. On June 23, Christine Hart - a 2012 Korbel graduate with a master's degree in human rights – saw the announcement and wrote a petition objecting to her alma mater's choice of honoree. [Sadly, the petition may not work. Protesters need to *shut that insane dinner down.*]

Crash survivor says everyone on plane had to be interviewed by FBI before they could be allowed to leave

Crash survivor says everyone on plane had to be interviewed by FBI before they could be allowed to leave 06 Jul 2013 Moments after Asiana Airlines flight 214 stopped its violent crash landing, a voice came over the plane's intercom to say it had landed safely and everyone should stay in their seats, a passenger told ABC News. Within minutes, however, flames could be seen outside the plane's windows and smoke was seeping into the cabin... The ordeal didn't end after their evacuation. Lee Jang Hyung said he was somewhere in the airport, but he didn't know where. They were told that everyone on the plane had to be interviewed by the FBI before they could be allowed to leave.

Agreements with private companies protect U.S. access to cables' data for surveillance

Agreements with private companies protect U.S. access to cables' data for surveillance 06 Jul 2013 The U.S. government had a problem: Spying in the digital age required access to the fiber-optic cables traversing the world's oceans, carrying torrents of data at the speed of light. And one of the biggest operators of those cables was being sold to an Asian firm, potentially complicating American surveillance efforts. Enter "Team Telecom." This "Network Security Agreement," signed in September 2003 by Global Crossing, became a model for other deals over the past decade as foreign investors increasingly acquired pieces of the world's telecommunications infrastructure.

Critics Slam Adding Fluoride to Connecticut's Public Water Supplies

Critics Slam Adding Fluoride to Connecticut's Public Water Supplies 06 Jul 2013 Saying the practice takes away the right of consumers to make medical choices and possibly inflicts serious harm on children [and adults], opponents of adding fluoride to public water argued Wednesday that a glass of water should contain water - and nothing else. At an informal hearing at the state Capitol called by state Sen. Joe Markley (R-Southington), chemist Paul Connett called on state lawmakers to abolish the state's flouridation law and forbid communities from putting additives in water supplies to improve destroy public health. "We should never use the public water supply to deliver medicine," said Connett, a retired Dartmouth professor and leading fluoridation critic. "No doctor could do to us what the state of Connecticut is doing." [Exactly!]

Some Sandy Hook Victims' Families Still Angry Over Fund 06 Jul 2013 Some family members of the 26 victims, including 20 first-graders, killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre say that the protracted battle with the foundation overseeing an $11.4 million fund over how the donations will be dispersed has left them victimized once again. In a meeting with The Courant this week, members of 12 of the families agreed to speak about their frustrations on the condition that their names not be published.

The family members say the group has ignored their pleas to bring in an independent party to oversee the process.

A Disease Without a Cure Spreads Quietly in the West

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.

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.

Snowden will not get citizenship in Iceland

Snowden will not get citizenship in Iceland :( by Birgitta Jónsdóttir 05 Jul 2013 I have been waiting for some time to get an official request from Edward Snowden in regard for application for Icelandic citizenship. Yesterday the request came, and me and members of 4 parties in the Icelandic parliament put forward a bill urging the parliament to process his request... We had election April 27th this year.

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.
