July 8, 2015 by legitgov

Security Experts Oppose U.S. and UK Governments' Plan for Access to Encrypted Communication | 07 July 2015 | An elite group of security technologists has concluded that the American and British governments cannot demand special access to encrypted communications without putting the world's most confidential data and critical infrastructure in danger. A new paper from the group, made up of 14 of the world's pre-eminent cryptographers and computer scientists, is a formidable salvo in a skirmish between intelligence and law enforcement leaders, and technologists and privacy advocates. After Edward J. Snowden's revelations -- with security breaches and awareness of nation-state surveillance at a record high and data moving online at breakneck speeds -- encryption has emerged as a major issue in the debate over privacy rights.

Jeb Bush Rules Out 'Leniency' for NSA Leaker Edward Snowden [And, the US needs to rule out the presidency for Jeb Bush.] | 07 July 2015 | Jeb Bush may be among the strongest Republican contenders in the 2016 White House race, but he is unlikely to win support from Edward Snowden after he ruled out any "leniency" for the National Security Agency (NSA) leaker, CBS News reported. The former Florida governor reacted to comments by recently retired Attorney General Eric Holder, who in an interview had suggested that a deal with Snowden was possible. Bush said if he were to move into the White House, he would bring down the full force of law on Snowden, who has lived in Russia for the past two years since President Vladimir Putin's government granted him temporary asylum in the country.

Undocumented immigrant who shot San Francisco woman with 'rifle stolen from FBI agent' previously used gun to shoot seals - reports | 07 July 2015 | The undocumented immigrant accused of shooting and killing a San Francisco woman in front of her father appeared in court on Tuesday as Hillary Clinton joined figures from across the political spectrum in condemning the city's decision to release him before the crime. Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez pleaded not guilty to murdering Kathryn Steinle as she walked on Pier 14 with her father. His public defender Matt Gonzalez said the shooting last week appeared to be an 'accident' and Sanchez claims the rifle 'went off in his hands'. The San Francisco chronicle claims that the rifle used to kill Miss Steinle had been stolen from an FBI agent's car in June. It adds to other reports that Sanchez had been using it to shoot at seals.

Govt to raise maximum annual radiation exposure ahead of restart of nuclear reactors | 30 June 2015 | (Japan) The government will raise the maximum permissible radiation dose for people including local government officials and bus drivers who will give evacuation guidance to local residents or transport materials in the event of a nuclear accident from the current 1 millisievert per year. At the time of the outbreak of the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant, efforts to evacuate and transport materials were hampered because a sufficient number of necessary people such as government staff were not secured for the local task force near the crippled nuclear power complex...The government plans to set up a working group within the Cabinet Office as early as next month to start discussing a new standard. The new maximum permissible radiation dose will be applied mainly to local public servants other than police and fire department officials and local bus and truck drivers. [Hopefully, the Japanese people will engage in *open rebellion* to prevent the restart of deadly nuclear power plants.]

North Carolina budget measure would expand 'terrorism exemption' to more state records

July 6, 2015 by legitgov

North Carolina budget measure would expand 'terrorism exemption' to more state records | 06 July 2015 | Open government advocates say they're concerned about a provision in the state Senate budget that would broaden the so-called "terrorism exemption" and block certain records from public review. Current state records law already blocks the release of "specific details" of security and infrastructure plans, as well as the release of plans to "prevent or respond to terrorist activity." But the state Senate's budget would add exemptions for documents that detail "patterns or practices associated with executive protection and security," among other measures...Two additional provisions would prevent the release of details associated with prison operations and plans by law enforcement "to prevent or respond to criminal, gang or organized illegal activity."

New doubts over mammograms: Study of 16 million women casts doubts on the benefits of screening | 06 July 2015 | Routine breast cancer screening may be incorrectly picking up women who do not actually have the disease, research suggests. A huge study of 16 million women casts doubts on the benefits of routinely offering mammograms to women of a certain age. The data suggest that routine screening is leading to significant numbers of 'false positives' - in which women are wrongly told they might have breast cancer when, in fact, they do not. Other women might undergo gruelling chemotherapy to treat small, slow-growing tumours which might never have troubled them if they lived on in ignorance.

Obama administration spied on German media as well as its government | 04 July 2015 | An investigation by the German parliament is raising questions on whether the Obama administration not only spied on journalists in that country, but also interfered in the exercise of the free press under the guise of U.S. national security.
