    Russian Nuclear Bombers Buzz Alaska, N. Europe
    Russian strategic nuclear bombers carried out air defense zone incursions near Alaska and across Northern Europe this week in the latest nuclear saber rattling by Moscow.

    Six Russian aircraft, including two Bear H nuclear bombers, two MiG-31 fighter jets and two IL-78 refueling tankers were intercepted by F-22 fighters on Wednesday west and north of Alaska in air defense identification zones, said Navy Capt. Jeff A. Davis, a spokesman for the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command. Two other Bears were intercepted by Canadian jets on Thursday.

    Michelle Obama: Americans ‘Take for Granted’ How Much Barack Has Improved US
    “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving on our Supreme Court,” she said. “They take for granted that their president will end hurtful policies like ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ they’ll speak out for gay marriage. “If we lose these midterm elections, it’s going to be a whole lot harder to finish what we’ve started,” she warned. “Because things will be even worse here in Washington.”

    She also skewered members of Congress for blocking her anti-obesity agenda in public schools

    “In fact, it’s gotten so bad, they’ve even tried to block the work I do on child obesity — and that’s really saying something,” she said. “I mean, for most folks in this country, making sure our kids get decent nutrition isn’t all that controversial — it shouldn’t be

    Chinese hackers allegedly hit Boeing, get data on military planes
    Su Bin, the owner of a Chinese aviation-technology company with an office in Canada, conspired with two unidentified individuals in China to break into the computer networks of U.S. companies to get information related to military projects, according to charges unsealed yesterday in federal court in Los Angeles. Su advised the two others in China on what data to target, according to the charges.
    Su’s alleged co-conspirators claimed to have stolen 65 gigabytes of data from Boeing related to the C-17 military cargo plane, according to the criminal complaint. They also allegedly sought data related to other aircraft, including Lockheed Martin’s F-22 and F-35 fighter jets.
    The two unidentified Chinese individuals are “affiliated with multiple organizations and entities in the PRC,” according to U.S. prosecutors, using the initials of the People’s Republic of China.
    They are involved with an “entity” that has set up technology bases and does surveillance work and intelligence collection outside China to “avoid diplomatic and legal complications,” according to the criminal complaint, citing a report one of the two individuals sent to the other.
    They helped gather information about 32 U.S. military projects, many of which involved multiple defense contractors, according to the filing, citing a Feb. 27, 2012, email between the two Chinese ind

    Chinese-backed hackers infiltrated the computer networks of airline, shipping and information technology companies responsible for transporting personnel and weapons for the U.S. military, a Senate investigation found.
    There were 20 such breaches from June 2012 to May 2013, giving the hackers insight into military logistics and a foothold that could be used to disrupt operations, according to a report today by the Senate Armed Services Committee.
    U.S. Defense Department confronts persistent digital incursions aimed at stealing military secrets and potentially disrupting vital computer networks. Private airlines provide more than 90 percent of Defense Department personnel movement and more than one-third of bulk cargo capability, according to the report. About 12 contractors were found to have been breached during the committee’s investigation. The report didn’t identify any or reveal whether any information was stolen. Chinese military doctrine advocates targeting logistics networks to hinder the Pentagon’s ability to operate during conflict, the committee said.

    The report identified systematic problems in the command’s awareness of cybersecurity vulnerabilities and the sharing of information between agencies

    Military contractors for the US Transportation Command were breached by hackers associated with the Chinese government at least 20 times in one year, according to a report released Wednesday by the US Senate Armed Services Committee.
    The committee’s investigation identified gaps in cyber-incident reporting requirements at the US Transportation Command (TRANSCOM), which is responsible for moving US troops and equipment, including to and from war zones.
    The TRANSCOM contractors include US commercial airlines and shipping companies, although the Senate report did not identify which companies were breached.
    Among the investigation’s findings was a Chinese military intrusion in 2010 of a Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF) contractor in which “documents, flight details, credentials and passwords for encrypted email were stolen.”

    The report said the CRAF is made up of contractors who do little business with the US military during peace time, but may be called upon to rapidly deploy military assets during times of crisis.

    China hacks US military contractorsLoss of data at CRAF contractors could potentially compromise US operational readiness, the report said.

    Does the school plan meals with every kid that has some form of food allergy in mind for every meal given out? Do they pay attention to food additives? Some dishes use say peanut oil and a kid with a peanut allergy would be affected by such an additive. Just BS

  • [16] September 19, 2014 at 9:25am

    The kid in the photo, the kind food sharer, looks old enough to understand the gravity of food allergies. So one can reasonably conclude that the cheese sandwich kid was about the same age and can also grasp the concept of food allergies. If the cheese sandwich kid had a food allergy, his parent/parents/ guardians would have drilled it into his head ad nauseum, never to accept food from others bc it is unknown as to the contents of said food. Whether it be peanuts or shrimp etc. Some even have an epipen on them. If they don’t, the school should have it in their possession and a nurse on staff (which most do).
    So this ridiculousness about liability is just that, ridiculous. The kind burrito boy should not be punished at all. They are making a mountain out of a mole hill. More than likely on purpose. Wouldn’t want anyone thinking for themselves. Not even if thinking leads to kind actions like sharing.

    Go time: Illegals rushing border fearing U.S. crackdown
    ***no one from other countries than ours needs to be concerned over passport s at our southern border. They can just reenter the country at our open southern border. Problem solved

    An American air marshal was stabbed with a needle in a west African airport. There are reports that one of the reasons this has been so difficult to stop/ slow down is bc of some in the affected countries believe Ebola was started by western countries/ US. So sending our soldiers, the very image of militarism, will only , potentially, further or fuel fear, conjecture, and anger. Not a good plan.

    The Ebola outbreak could end up lasting for years and spreading to many more countries if it is not controlled quickly, a U.S. health official told a Senate hearing Tuesday, a day when aid agencies offered a stark assessment of prospects for stopping the epidemic.If we do not act now to stop Ebola, we could be dealing with it for years to come,” said Beth Bell, director of the national center for emerging and zoonotic infectious diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At a Senate hearing on Ebola, she noted that 100 CDC staff are working in West Africa and hundreds more are assisting from Atlanta. “The best way to protect the U.S. is to stop the outbreak in West Africa.”
    **** the best way to combat the outbreak is to send more Americans over, potentially, only to be sent back here for treatment in ever increasing numbers? Dangerous to play with fire. There are already super bugs like MRSA, C. DIFF, VRE, TB, etc in our hospitals. No matter how much the ‘experts ‘ try to sell the nation on this being a good way to combat a dangerous infection, won’t make it true. Once Ebola enters hospitals via patients…just a disaster waiting to happen. Hubris kills

    Some 95 percent of the expatriate doctors left when the Ebola outbreak began in March, leaving 50 physicians to treat the country’s 4.3 million population.
    Ladsous, according to the U.N. News Center, emphasized that a peacekeeping mission is not a public health mission, stressing that handling the Ebola outbreak is “not something we are trained for.
    *****95% of doctors left in March? Why? If it was initially touted as something hard to get, why did 95% of doctors leave in March?

    Deaths sadly much higher than the number listed here. But who knows what the facts are? Misinformation is the name of the game

    NEW YORK – As the unprecedented Ebola outbreak in West Africa, dubbed “World War E,” rages out of control, the United Nations is admitting the approximately 6,000 peacekeepers still in Liberia are not trained in health-care operations.
    The acknowledgement comes after a top German virologist told reporters Friday he does not expect the Ebola virus to burn out in Liberia or Sierra Leone until it infects half the population of the two countries and kills 5 million people.Confirmed cases of Ebola have increased 57 percent in the past three weeks, with the death toll currently at 1,296 and no end in sight, according to updated World Health Organization statistics.

    Jones Schmidt-Chanasit, the director of viral diagnostics at the Bernhard Nocht Institute of Tropical Medicine in Hamburg, told the international press Friday he and his colleagues have lost all hope of halting the spread of the virus in Sierra Leone and Liberia.

    “We lost the possibility of controlling this Ebola outbreak in those two countries back in May or June,” Schmidt-Chanasit said.

    Texas Sheriff: Reports Warn Of ISIS Terrorist Cells Coming Across The BorderMidland County, Texas (CBS HOUSTON) – Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter said that law enforcement agencies along the “wide open” border have received alerts to be on the lookout for terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria crossing into the United States.“I received an intelligence report that said that there was ISIS cells that were active in the Juarez area, which is the northern part of the Chihuahua state, and that they were moving around over there, that there was some activityPainter noted that “Muslim” items have been strewn along the border and estimated that 10 to 15 million “undocumented aliens” have crossed the border“I think it’d be naive to say that (ISIS is) not here…We have found Muslim clothing, they have found Quran books that are lying on the side of the trail, so we know that there are Muslims that have come across and are being smuggled into the United States
