Who Hacked the White House?

When the hacking of Sony’s computer system produced a brouhaha of ridiculous proportions, the government’s pet “experts” were quick to blame North Korea. The rationale: Since Sony was releasing a pretty awful anti-North Korean propaganda film, it was only obvious that King Jong-un was personally responsible. Besides that, the attack supposedly originated in a region of cyberspace inhabited by North Korea’s pathetic Internet superstructure.

Why I’m A Denier (Hint: Because It’s Crap)

Let’s begin by acknowledging that the science of global warming is beyond the vast majority of us. Nonetheless, this does not mean we turn off our brains and simply accept the pronouncements of those sounding the alarm and offering their remedies. I am a global warming skeptic (to say the least) specifically because I have thought through the issue and the claims of the alarmists just don’t add up. What follows is my thinking and what it is that has led me to conclude that global-warming is a leftist farce which is being perpetuated for both financial and political reasons.

Stanford professor left barefoot, homeless and trapped in Israel for 15 years

An American citizen was left homeless and barefoot in Israel, and those who provided him with shoes were punished by the courts.

Gary visited Israel for a long weekend to attend his son’s coming of age – or bar mitzvah – ceremony. He was already a divorced man. He had emigrated to Israel (or “made aliyah”) many years before and, after his marriage broke down, he was told by an Israeli court that it would be better if he left Israel and went back to the USA to continue working as he would be better able to provide financially for his children.

22 Mt Everest climbers die in Nepal earthquake

"We have confirmed reports of 22 deaths and 62 injured," informed tourism ministry spokesperson Mohan Krishna Sapkota said.

Powerful aftershocks rocsked Nepal Sunday, triggering fresh avalanches at the Everest base camp. Climbers reported that the aftershock caused more avalanches at Mount Everest, just after helicopters airlifted to safety those injured when a wall of snow hit the base camp on Saturday.

"There are over 200 missing. But there is no confirmation on how many could buried under snow in the avalanche or making their way back down on their own," Sapkota added. Foreign adventurers, hikers and guides at the base camp went missing when the avalanche swept down the Everest.

Washington Choreographing All-Out War with Russia?

The provocation to Russia has to be seen in the wider even more troubling context of American-led NATO build-up of troops, warplanes, warships and missiles across Eastern Europe – and all pointed at Russia.

The reckless American leaders are putting in place incendiary elements that heighten the risk of all-out war with Russia.

With the reported arrival of 300 American paratroopers in Ukraine collaborating with Kiev’s Neo-Nazi National Guard brigades – the worst offenders over the past year’s fighting in eastern Ukraine – that development is an alarming harbinger of imminent conflict.

Of utmost concern is that the US military forces have reportedly moved into the Donetsk region near the conflict zone.

Nepal Earthquake Triggers Avalanche at Mount Everest Base Camp; At Least 18 Dead

An avalanche triggered by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Nepal plowed through Mount Everest's base camp Saturday killing at least 18 people and injuring dozens more.

The base camp's nylon tents stood little chance against the torrent of snow and debris that rushed down the mountainside, smothering everything in its path. The avalanche — or perhaps a series of avalanches hidden in a massive white cloud — plowed into a part of base camp, a sprawling seasonal village of climbers, guides and porters, flattening at least 30 tents, Tshering said. All of the dead and injured were at base camp.

Figures Don’t Lie, But Liars Figure — Medically Speaking

By Catherine J. Frompovich

From very early on in life, everyone learns how important math is, especially that one and one equal two, not three or even two-and-a-half! However, when it comes to statistics and other mathematical markers for business, industry, and even science, numbers sometimes belie the reality of the facts, depending upon who wants to prove what, and to whom.

Recently, I’ve been thinking about the cost of healthcare—or is it sickness care—in the United States, and how it’s been escalating despite the purported advances in medical science and even the outlandish contention that vaccines can help to reduce sickness and its costs by improving, what’s euphemistically called, ‘herd immunity’. Let’s get one thing accurate: I don’t consider myself—or any person—to be a member of any animal herd. I’m a human being...

Toyota's killer firmware: Bad design and its consequences

Embedded software used to be low-level code we'd bang together using C or assembler. These days, even a relatively straightforward, albeit critical, task like throttle control is likely to use a sophisticated RTOS and tens of thousands of lines of code.

With all this sophistication, standards and practices for design, coding, and testing become paramount – especially when the function involved is safety-critical. Failure is not an option. It is something to be contained and benign.

So what happens when an automaker decides to wing it and play by their own rules? To disregard the rigorous standards, best practices, and checks and balances required of such software (and hardware) design? People are killed, reputations ruined, and billions of dollars are paid out. That's what happens. Here's the story of some software that arguably never should have been.

Sorry grandma! That $42 million slot machine jackpot was a computer glitch

"The reels have rolled your way! Bonus Award - $41797550.16."

That's what the Miss Kitty penny slot machine told 87-year-old Illinois grandmother Pauline McKee who was in Iowa during a family reunion in 2011. McKee and daughter thought they hit the big time—a $41.8 million payday. The two quickly demanded the mega payout from the Isle Hotel Casino in Waterloo.

But the casino refused to pay, concluding it was a computer glitch and that a sign on the game says "MALFUNCTION VOIDS ALL PAYS AND PLAYS." She sued, and took her case all the way to the Iowa Supreme Court. The state's high court sided with the casino Friday, ruling that the woman's heart-pounding payout was worth just $1.85.

Putin claims intercepted phone calls prove US helped Chechen Islamic insurgents wage war against Russia

In a documentary aired today on state-owned Rossiya-1 TV channel, he said phone records from the early 2000s show direct contact between North Caucasus separatists and US secret services.

'At one point our secret services simply detected direct contacts between militants from the North Caucasus and representatives of the United States secret services in Azerbaijan,' Putin said.

Putin said he raised the issue with then-US President George W. Bush, who promised to 'kick the ass' of the intelligence officers in question.

But he claimed a few days later the heads of Russia's FSB received a letter from their American counterparts, which said they had the right to support opposition forces in Russia.

At some point, the corporations and authorities in America are going to have to get over this knee-jerk reaction complex they have in going after citizens kindly pointing out technology and security flaws for them. You see this over and over and over again: someone notices a flaw in a system, points it out publicly instead of exploiting the flaw, and is thoroughly punished for his or her efforts. Often times there is a mealy-mouthed explanation for these punishments, which, chiefly, have to do with security risks in publicizing the flaw even though the ultimate goal should be fixing the exploit to begin with.

“Professors for Israel” Try To Shut down The Lancet

Academia is far from the bastion of free thinking and free speech it would like to claim for itself, as a newly confected “row” involving the leading medical journal The Lancet confirms.

Recently Southampton University in the UK caved in on hosting an important conference examining Israel and international law, following an intensive campaign of intimidation from Israeli apologists.

Now some 400 medical professors are blackmailing Reed Elsevier, publishers of The Lancet, by threatening to boycott its publications unless the company sacks editor Richard Horton – or as they duplicitously phrase it, “enforce appropriate ethical standards of editorship”.

By refusing to publish papers or peer review them, the professors, including five Nobel winners, hope Reed Elsevier will capitulate from fear that such a boycott might bring it to its knees.

Thousands Attend Funeral For Palestinian Accused Of Stabbing Israeli Soldier

Thousands of Palestinians attended the funeral of Mahmoud Abu Jheisha on Sunday, after the 20-year-old was shot dead by Israeli forces outside the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron when he allegedly stabbed an Israeli soldier.

The funeral procession began at the Amari Mosque in Abu Jheisha's hometown of Idhna, west of Hebron, where family and friends paid their final respects, before he was taken to be buried in the town cemetery.

Participants reportedly chanted slogans condemning Israeli crimes and calling for an end to Israeli practices as part of the occupation.

Abu Jheisha was shot dead by Israeli forces after allegedly stabbing an Israeli soldier at the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Witnesses told Ma'an that he stabbed the soldiers a number of times before Israeli forces shot him dead.
The Israeli soldier, who was moved to a Jerusalem hospital, received stab wounds in his head and chest, and his condition was described as moderate.

Obama Unveils Plan for Nationalization of Police

I’ve been warning people for years about the militarization and federalization of our nation’s police forces. From billions of dollars in military equipment pouring into small rural police forces, to BLM thugs pointing sniper rifles at American citizens in Nevada, to border patrol being used to police American citizens, the federal government’s takeover of our nation’s policing is something that should concern everyone.

Last week President Obama unveiled a new interim report from his Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The task force is being used intimidate police departments throughout the country to follow federal policing rules.

Declassified Report Shows Doubts About Value of N.S.A.’s Warrantless Spying

The secrecy surrounding the National Security Agency’s post-9/11 warrantless surveillance and bulk data collection program hampered its effectiveness, and many members of the intelligence community later struggled to identify any specific terrorist attacks it thwarted, a newly declassified document shows.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the US Government violated the Constitution, spied on law abiding citizens, drooled over stolen naked pictures of our wives and girlfriends, helped themselves to our business secrets, spent a huge amount of money, made out computer systems more vulnerable under the claim of making us more secure ... and utterly failed to find and stop any terrorists.

Yeah; that's the quality work we have come to expect from the bozos in DC!

Let's be honest. While the contractors for this boondoggle have made billions of dollars, the system failed and it failed for precisely the reason I said it would fail.

1. People lie on social media, which means social media is not a source of reliable hard intelligence. No real criminals or terrorists use social media because is is social! Discussing an act of terror on Facebook makes as much sense as discussing a robbery while having lunch in a restaurant. It is a given others will be listening in.

2. Real criminals and terrorists, if they use telecommunications at all, will develop their own encryption systems, which as we demonstrated, will be unbreakable to the NSA.

So the reason the NSA system never found any real terrorists is that it wasn't supposed to. The NSA is watching YOU, for the US Government, which is afraid that you no longer naively trust them, that you will not do what you are told to do, not believe what you are told to believe, will refuse to pay the money you are told to pay, refuse to let your children be killed and crippled in wars when told to do so, and worse, might decide, as our forebears did in 1776, to give this abusive government and it's slave-system of private central banking the old heave ho!

Obamacare: AMAC Says The ‘Silence is Deafening’ As We Await Its Fate

“You don’t hear many people talking about the Affordable Care Act these days. It appears interest in Obamacare has dwindled to perhaps its lowest level in the five years since Obamacare was born in 2010. Is it because opponents and proponents of the law are holding their collective breath in anticipation? There’s a lot at stake. If the justices rule that federal subsidies are legit, it’ll be business as usual but if they deny subsidies it will be a devastating blow to the law as it stands,” Weber said.

But the fact is that, behind the scenes, the new Congress has been working on a “course correction” that has its origins well before the enactment of Obamacare.

Did exaggerated records make global warming look worse? Scientists to investigate whether 'adjusted' temperatures skewed data

An international panel of scientists will today launch a major inquiry to discover whether official world temperature records have exaggerated the extent of global warming.

The panel, convened by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), the ‘climate sceptic’ think-tank led by the former Tory Chancellor Lord Lawson, will focus on thousands of ‘adjustments’ that have been made to temperature records kept at individual weather stations around the world.

Sceptics have argued that the effect of such adjustments – made when instruments are replaced or recalibrated, or heat-producing buildings are erected close to weather station sites – has skewed the records.

Breaking a 24-year silence over the scandal, former Detective Inspector Kelvyn Ashby told The Mail on Sunday that during an investigation lasting several months in 1991, he found vital clues that backed up claims that Janner had molested a teenage boy at his marital home and a hotel.

Company breaks open Apple Watch to discover what it says is 'planned obsolescence'

“The S1 SiP [internal system in package] is encased in resin, and is further held in place by a mess of glue and soldered ribbon connectors. In short, basic component replacements look nearly impossible.”

The s1SiP is custom-designed Apple technology that integrates a number of subsystems like the chip into one package. It is encased in resin to increase its durability.

Therefore, according to iFixit, the Apple Watch has intentional obsolescence built into it as it will become technologically redundant as processors become faster and apps are supported only by the newest models.

This tactic is known as 'planned obsolescence' and has been an accusation levelled at Apple for a number of years.

Scientists find huge magma reservoir in Yellowstone 'supervolcano' (+video)

Beneath Yellowstone’s surface, seismologists at the University of Utah have discovered a huge reservoir of hot, partly molten rock – more evidence that Yellowstone with its earthquakes and geysers is a 'supervolcano.'

Scientists and tourists have always known that Yellowstone National Park featured lively geologic wonders – regular small earthquakes and two-thirds of the world’s geysers, including Old Faithful – all constituting what’s known as a “supervolcano.”

Now, seismologists at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City have made a new discovery about Yellowstone’s subsurface plumbing, specifically a reservoir of hot, partly molten rock more than four times larger than the shallower magma chamber that scientists already knew about. To give that some perspective, the newly discovered reservoir would fill the Grand Canyon 11 times, compared with 2.5 times for the shallower chamber.

UK election: What the parties say about Palestine

“Law” and “justice” are words that seldom if ever pass the lips of our politicians when discussing the ‘Palestine Question’ — or shouldn’t that be properly called the ‘Israel Question’? In the UK there is still no rush, it seems, to deliver law or justice to the situation after 100 years of betrayal.

Britain’s ferocious warmongering in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, and efforts to destabilize Syria, caused havoc in those countries and earned us a reputation for human misery making. This week our misbegotten chickens came home to roost in an unbearably distressing way as desperate refugee-migrants drowned at sea hundreds at a time.

Congress Wants to Put Artisanal Soap Makers Out of Business for Your Safety

What! You mean to tell me you don’t use Dial or Zest to get clean?

You use HANDMADE SOAP?????

But how will you get your daily dose of cancer-causing parabens? Your hormone-disrupting substances?

The government is VERY concerned about this. VERY.

So much so that they wish to regulate and charge artisanal soapmakers right out of business.

Tsarnaev witnesses moved from Revere hotel

REVERE -- Six defense witnesses for convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who were staying in a hotel near Logan International Airport have been moved to another location outside the city, the Revere police chief said Saturday.

Chief Joseph Cafarelli said he was told that the witnesses staying at the Hampton Inn on Lee Burbank Highway left the hotel Saturday morning with the assistance of Federal Bureau of Investigation. He said he does now know where the witnesses were taken.

“God as my judge, I didn’t even ask. I don’t want to know.”

Tsarnaev’s family arrives as defense readies

Under federal protection in a Revere hotel

Relatives of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are under federal government protection in a Revere hotel, officials said Friday, and are widely expected to assist the defense team as it prepares to present its case next week that Tsarnaev should be spared the death penalty.

“So far Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is a cardboard figure for the jury,” said former federal judge Nancy Gertner, who now teaches at Harvard Law School. “Anything that humanizes him is a good thing for the defense.”
