Muon scans confirm complete reactor meltdown at Fukushima No. 1 | 20 March 2015 | The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has announced that its muon tomography scanning efforts at Fukushima have borne fruit, and confirmed that nuclear plant's Reactor #1 suffered a complete meltdown following the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, 2011.

After first denying that a melt-through had occurred, TEPCO later changed its tune and said that it most likely had, at least at Reactor #1.

US must release photos of Abu Ghraib prisoners, federal judge rules | 21 March 2015 | The US must release photographs showing abuse of detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan, a federal judge has ruled in a long-running clash over letting the world see potentially disturbing images of how the military treated prisoners. US district judge Alvin Hellerstein's ruling Friday gives the government, which has fought the case for over a decade, two months to decide whether to appeal before the photos could be released...It's unclear how many more photographs may exist. The government has said it has 29 relevant pictures from at least seven different sites in Afghanistan and Iraq, and it's believed to have perhaps hundreds or thousands more, Hellerstein said in a ruling in August.

Ted Cruz to announce presidential bid Monday | 21 March 2015 | Sen.

Obama confirms 'evaluating options' after Netanyahu's 'no Palestinian state' pledge

March 22, 2015 by legitgov

Obama confirms 'evaluating options' after Netanyahu's 'no Palestinian state' pledge | 22 March 2015 | Since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu apparently meant what he said in announcing that there would be no Palestinian state on his watch, the White House is re-evaluating its policy towards Israel and seeking other option to avoid chaos in the region, the US President has said. Commenting on the Israeli elections for the first time after PM Netanyahu's victory, US president Barack Obama made it clear that the US supports the two-state solution in the Israeli conflict despite the PM's strong pre-election rhetoric. The two-state solution is "the only way for the long-term security of Israel, if it wants to stay both a Jewish state and democratic," US President said in his interview with the Huntington Post.

The NSA's plan: improve cybersecurity by hacking everyone else | 21 March 2015 | The National Security Agency want to be able to hack more people, vacuum up even more of your internet records and have the keys to tech companies' encryption - and, after 18 months of embarrassing inaction from Congress on surveillance reform, the NSA is now lobbying it for more powers, not less. NSA director Mike Rogers testified in front of a Senate committee this wee, lamenting that the poor ol' NSA just doesn't have the "cyber-offensive" capabilities (read: the ability to hack people) it needs to adequately defend the US. How cyber-attacking countries will help cyber-defense is anybody's guess, but the idea that the NSA is somehow hamstrung is absurd.

52 Congress members sign letter warning of GMOs killing monarch butterflies

March 21, 2015 by legitgov

52 Congress members sign letter warning of GMOs killing monarch butterflies | 18 March 2015 | Dozens of House Democrats have signed onto a letter sent to President Obama claiming that the spread of GM crops is leading to the death of monarch butterflies. The letter, authored by Rep. Chellie Pingree of Maine, says that the butterflies are "in peril of being lost to the history books" in large part because of the "virtual eradication" of milkweed plants from their primary breeding grounds in the Midwest. The milkweed eradication, the letter states, has come primarily from the "widespread spraying of herbicides in agricultural areas" where the plants were once bountiful.

Local CT Officials Say Bill Would Preclude Local Control Near Transit Stations

March 20, 2015 by legitgov

Local CT Officials Say Bill Would Preclude Local Control Near Transit Stations | 16 March 2015 | Local officials and groups that represent municipalities are sounding the alarm over a bill they fear would strip towns and cities of control over development near train and CTfastrak stations. At issue is legislation proposed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to create a new quasipublic agency called the Connecticut Transit Corridor Development Authority. The authority...is intended to assist and promote development within a half-mile radius of transit stations. But the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, the City of New Haven, Republicans on the town council in Newington (home to two CTfastrak stations), and others worry that the legislation as now written would undermine local zoning and decision-making authority.

Court: NSA Spying May Continue Even If Congress Lets Authority Expire

March 19, 2015 by legitgov

Court: NSA Spying May Continue Even If Congress Lets Authority Expire | 18 March 2015 | The National Security Agency may be allowed to continue scooping up American phone records indefinitely even if congressional authority for the program that allows it expires later this year, according to a recently declassified court order. The legal underpinning of the NSA's bulk collection of U.S. call data resides in a provision of the post-9/11 USA Patriot Act that is scheduled to sunset on June 1. The common understanding among lawmakers and the intelligence community is that the surveillance program will halt unless Congress reauthorizes Section 215 of the Patriot Act in some fashion. But a passage buried on the last pages of an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court declassified last week leaves open the door for the program--exposed publicly by Edward Snowden nearly two years ago--to continue even if lawmakers let Section 215 lapse.

JeNeSuisPasLiberal: Entering the Quagmire of Online Leftism

March 18, 2015 by legitgov

#JeNeSuisPasLiberal: Entering the Quagmire of Online Leftism | 10 March 2015 | Mark Fisher's "Exiting the Vampire's Castle" is a clumsy, ripping attack on Moralist tenets, condemning Moralist activists as bourgeois, privileged individualists who use "an ultimately liberal understanding of race and gender to obfuscate class" with "a logic of solipsism which insists that we cannot understand one another unless we belong to the same identity group." Fisher's white-hot rage does not counter Moralist arguments, but seeks instead to wipe them off the map. Michael Rectenwald's response, "What's Wrong With Identity Politics (and Intersectionality Theory)?", corrects some of Fisher's excesses while agreeing that identity-based Moralist politics are fundamentally reformist, liberal, and useless...
