Another hard-to-imagine health threat at UW-Madison that wasn't on the general public's radar until recently also has an elaborate preparedness plan: the unlikely event that a potentially deadly virus accidentally escapes or is stolen from a UW research lab.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention -- considered the gold standard of biosafety -- is under fire for recently revealed safety lapses at a half-dozen federal health agency labs involving deadly anthrax and smallpox, and a dangerous strain of bird flu. [Just wow. It is manifest to me that the dirt-bags *can't wait* to get the pandemic party started. --LRP]

An FAA spokesperson confirmed that the warning, called a "notice to airman," was still in effect today, when a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was reported to have crashed in eastern Ukraine.

Under the new limit, if the water temperature exceeds 80 degrees, Unit 3 must be placed in "hot" standby within 6 hours and "cold" shutdown within the following 30 hours, NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan said in a statement.

9 EU countries ready to block economic sanctions against Russia 15 Jul 2014 France, Germany, and Italy are among EU members who don't want to follow the US lead and impose trade sanctions on Russia. US sanctions are seen as a push to promote its own multibillion free-trade pact with Europe.

Edward Snowden should not face trial, says UN human rights commissioner 16 Jul 2014 The United Nations' top human rights official has suggested that the United States should abandon its efforts to prosecute Edward Snowden, saying his revelations of massive state surveillance had been in the public interest. The UN high commissioner for human rights, Navi Pillay, credited Snowden, a former US National Security Agency contractor, with starting a global debate that has led to calls for the curtailing of state powers to snoop on citizens online and store their data. "Those who disclose human rights violations should be protected: we need them," Pillay told a news conference.

MSNBC's Alex Wagner Hits Demo Low with 19K Viewers 16 Jul 2014 MSNBC's NOW with Alex Wagner hit an all-time low in the 25-54 demo Tuesday afternoon during 4 p.m. time slot with just 19K viewers. The show came in a distant third place behind CNN's The Lead with Jake Tapper (147K) and Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto (145K). Not counting Thanksgiving Day 2013, the ratings marked MSNBC's lowest 4 p.m. numbers since August 2005. [LOL! That's because MSNBC fired actual journalist Martin Bashir, as he dared to criticize pea-brain Sarah Palin.]

Australian bill sees whistleblowing on intel ops punishable by up to 10 years in jail 17 Jul 2014 Australia's attorney general has proposed a new bill which would see potential whistleblowers facing up to 10 years in prison for leaks on special intelligence operations.

Journalists will face jail over spy leaks under new security laws 16 Jul 2014 Australian journalists could face prosecution and jail for reporting Snowden-style revelations about certain spy operations, in an "outrageous" expansion of the government's national security powers, leading criminal lawyers have warned. A bill presented to parliament on Wednesday by the attorney general, George Brandis, would expand the powers of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (Asio), including creation of a new offence punishable by five years in jail for "any person" who disclosed information relating to "special intelligence operations". The person would be liable for a 10-year term if the disclosure would "endanger the health or safety of any person or prejudice the effective conduct of a special intelligence operation".

Endangered Manatees Face a New Threat: Lawsuits 08 Jul 2014 What do manatees and bureaucracy have in common? They both have a tendency to move slowly--sometimes painfully slowly. In Florida manatees' own lethargy puts the animals at risk of being killed or injured by the speedboats that zip through the state's waterways. Sluggish bureaucracy, meanwhile, has created an opportunity for [terrorist] groups who oppose the manatees' protected status to file a lawsuit to remove the "sea cows" from the endangered species list.

More children die as Israel steps up Gaza attacks 16 Jul 2014 Israel intensify air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement.

Navy nurse refuses to force-feed Guantanamo captive

July 16, 2014 by legitgov

Navy nurse refuses to force-feed Guantánamo captive --Prisoner's lawyer says her client described the Navy medical officer’s refusal as an act of conscientious objection. 16 Jul 2014 In the first known rebellion against Guantánamo's force-feeding policy, a Navy medical officer recently refused to continue managing tube-feedings of prison hunger strikers and was reassigned to "alternative duties." A prison camp spokesman, Navy Capt. Tom Gresback, would not provide precise details but said Monday night that the episode had "no impact to medical support operations at the base." Guantánamo currently has 149 detainees prisoners, an unknown number of them on hunger strike under a blackout imposed by U.S. Southern Command in December after nine months of daily disclosure.

Senate GOP Blocks Bill on Contraception Coverage

July 16, 2014 by legitgov

Senate GOP Blocks Bill on Contraception Coverage 16 Jul 2014 Senate Republicans have blocked a bill aimed at restoring free contraception for women who get their health insurance from companies that object on religious grounds. The vote on Wednesday was 56-43 to move ahead on the measure, short of the 60 votes necessary [sic] to proceed. Democrats sponsored the election-year bill to reverse last month's Supreme Court ruling that closely held businesses with religious objections could deny coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law. [With a 56-43 vote, this bill -- like *so many others* -- would have passed if sycophantic DemocRATs forced a change in the filibuster rule years ago. Obama purposefully never pushed the issue, to ensure that Wall Street's influence (via the GOP) would thwart any measure that would actually help the people. If the GOP takes the Senate and a Republican wins the White House, does anyone actually believe a Republican president would allow Democrats to filibuster every piece of legislation? As Democrats are typically afraid of their own shadow, they would not. --LRP]
