Malware distributed by fake parking tickets

The flyers were fake parking violation notices, and instructed people to visit a website (which SANS did not publicize). Once they visited the website, they were infected with a malicious browser helper object.

From the post:

"The initial program installed itself as a browser helper object (BHO) for Internet Exploter that downloaded a component from childhe.com and attempted to trick the victim into installing a fake anti-virus scanner from bestantispyware securityscan.com and protectionsoft warecheck.com."

Organic Light With No Wasted Electricity

“There is no waste of electricity,” Jabbour says. “All the current you are putting into the device is being used to produce light. It's the first time something like this has been demonstrated. Nobody else has shown a 100 percent internal quantum efficiency for lighting devices using a single molecular dopant to emit white light.”

The achievement promises significant progress in the development of solid-state lighting based on OLED technology that can be manufactured at low costs.

Mafias

Giuliani closed down the local, mainly Italian-American, mafias.

This allowed certain foreign mafias to take over.

These foreign mafias were mainly Jewish and mainly from Russia and Israel.

The initial base of operations for the Jewish (so-called 'Russian') mafia was the Brighton Beach area in Brooklyn.

Giuliani 'looked the other way'.

THE United Nations has retracted a claim that an Israeli strike which killed more than 40 people in northern Gaza city of Jabaliya last month hit a school run by a UN agency.
"The humanitarian coordinator would like to clarify that the shelling, and all of the fatalities, took place outside rather than inside the school," the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in its latest weekly update on the situation in Gaza.

The Bad Bank Assets Proposal: Even Worse Than You Imagined

The Obama Administration is as obviously and fully hostage to the interests of the financial services industry as the Bush crowd was. We have no new thinking, no willingness to take measures that are completely defensible (in fact not doing them takes some creative positioning) like wiping out shareholders at obviously dud banks (Citi is top of the list), forcing bondholder haircuts and/or equity swaps, replacing management, writing off and/or restructuring bad loans, and deciding whether and how to reorganize and restructure the company.

Did Israel use "cancer bombs" in recent Gaza attack?

Doctors treating survivors of Israel's recent attack on Gaza say they have never seen certain kinds of injuries before: a Norwegian doctor described wounds that appear to have been caused by a mine detonating – yet there is no shrapnel. A German doctor treating survivors in southern Gaza says that tiny particles can be found eating away at organs, rendering treatment ineffective. So what kind of weapon caused these injuries?

UK judges accuse Obama Administration of suppressing torture claim

Two senior British judges have expressed their anger and surprise that President Barack Obama's Government has put pressure on Britain to suppress evidence of torture in US custody.

Lord Justice Thomas and Mr Justice Lloyd Jones said they had been told that America had threatened to stop co-operating with Britain on intelligence matters if evidence were published suggesting that Binyam Mohammed, a British resident held at the US prison camp at Guantánamo Bay, had been tortured into confessing crimes.

The judges said that lawyers for the Foreign Office & Commonwealth Office had assured them that the threat still held good, even since Mr Obama had come to power and reversed many of his predecessor's policies on the torture and detention of terror suspects.

IDF colonel leaves speaking tour of UK for fear of arrest

An Israeli colonel involved in Operation Cast Lead returned to Israel in haste on Friday, fearing arrest on charges of war crimes during a visit to the UK.

Col. (res.) Geva Rapp had arrived in London three days before for appearances in which he was to explain Israel's position and refute media representations of the hostilities.

His trip had been cleared by Israeli security services.

On Thursday night, after news of his visit reached pro-Palestinian groups, some 80 protesters demonstrated outside the offices of the Union of Jewish Students (UJS) in central London, where Rapp was scheduled to speak.

Calling for police to arrest him, the protesters blocked public pathways, while one scaled the building's walls. Police made several arrests.

Leading Counter-Terrorism Expert and Former High-Level Official Slams War on Terror and Questions 9/11

Terrell (Terry) E. Arnold was the number 2 counter-terrorism official at the U.S. State Department, and is one of the world's leading experts on terror.

Arnold served as the Deputy Director, Office of Counter-Terrorism and Emergency Planning, at the U.S. State Department. He is also the former Chairman of the Department of International Studies at the National War College.

SNIP

GW: You write:

"Washington leadership [has] brought us no closer than we were on September 12, 2001 to resolving how [9/11] was executed and by what enemy.

Let's focus on the how question first.

What facts or observations make you doubt that the official government story does not fully explain how 9/11 was carried out?

Terry Arnold: The nature of events in New York. The buildings falling down. I'm not satisfied by the notion that planes hitting buildings would have caused them to collapse. The last building to fall was not even attacked.

Coming to a street near you: The camera that measures your average speed - but won't let you know if you go over the limit

Many motorway drivers will have seen the yellow cameras hanging over the road - recording and calculating their average speed along a specific stretch of highway.

Now, the average speed check cameras, which have been trialled on 200 sections of motorway, could be deployed in residential areas.

ARE THE STATES REALLY BROKE OR HIDING ASSETS?

At least ten years ago, a man named Walter Burien began exposing something called a CAFR: Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. Walter managed to get on a SF radio show hosted by my friend, Geoff Metcalf. It was a real eye opener. Try as we all did, not one newspaper in the State of California would expose the truth of how the taxpayers were being fleeced. Nor would 99% of the radio stations statewide. I guess they all love being flogged every April 15th to reward the thieves in the state house.

Counterfeit Tough: U.S. Plans to Curb Executive Pay for Bailout Recipients (But WE pay their stock dividends!)

New York Times Online | EDMUND L. ANDREWS and VIKAS BAJAJ | Tue- February 3, 2009

U.S. Plans to Curb Executive Pay for Bailout Recipients

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is expected to impose a cap of $500,000 for top executives at companies that receive large amounts of bailout money, according to people familiar with the plan.

Executives would also be prohibited from receiving any bonuses above their base pay, except for normal stock dividends.

How the video data implies a Controlled Demolition of WTC 1.

There have been at least 3 presentations of evidence that show the simple NIST/BAZANT model of the collapse of the WTC Towers does not fit with the video data, nor does it obey Newton's Third Law.

We tested two simplified Models of a controlled demolition in WTC1 and compared the Models with the video evidence.

Observations of WTC1 Collapse, the NIST/BAZANT model and 2 Particulate Mass Models.

I'd welcome your thoughts and comments.

Global warming a 'political delusion'

Beginning with actual temperature change. According to both the Met Office's Hadley Centre and NASA, there has been no rise in the Earth's temperature since 1998, with temperatures declining since 2002 and satellite evidence showing expanding ice caps.

Meanwhile, sunspot data analysis predicts another 12-15 very cold years ahead, borne out by another cold winter across Europe, Canada and the USA.

So, despite record carbon dioxide emissions worldwide, we are in the midst of at least a two or three-decade cool-down within the current gradual warming cycle. An entirely natural phenomenon and a very inconvenient truth for the politicians, the warmist media, and wind power vested interests.

Why Are We Still at War?

Early into the second year of the Afghanistan war, in November 2002, a retired US Army general, William Odom, appeared on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" program and told viewers: "Terrorism is not an enemy. It cannot be defeated. It's a tactic. It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and expect we're going to win that war. We're not going to win the war on terrorism."

But the "war on terrorism" rubric - increasingly shortened to the even vaguer "war on terror" - kept holding enormous promise for a warfare state of mind. Early on, the writer Joan Didion saw the blotting of the horizon and said so: "We had seen, most importantly, the insistent use of Sept. 11 to justify the reconception of America's correct role in the world as one of initiating and waging virtually perpetual war."
