October 14, 2014 by legitgov

Texas Voter ID Law Deemed 'Poll Tax' Reinstated by Appeals Court 14 Oct 2014 A federal appeals court on Tuesday put on hold a ruling striking down a controversial Texas voter ID law, based "primarily" on the approaching election. The Texas voter ID suppression law, which requires voters to produce government-issued identification before casting ballots, was struck down last week by U.S. District Judge Nelva Conzales Ramos, who called the measure an "unconstitutional poll tax." But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit stayed Ramos's ruling, saying the "value of preserving the [unconstitutional] status quo" was important so soon before early voting begins in the state.

The watchdog broke new ground by disclosing the breadth of modern undercover work, revealing that there were 3,466 undercover operations in England and Wales between October 2009 and September 2013 and that at the most recent count, 1,229 officers in 39 units are trained as undercover officers.

Investigation Into Missing Iraqi Cash Ended in Lebanon Bunker

October 14, 2014 by legitgov

Investigation Into Missing Iraqi Cash Ended in Lebanon Bunker --$1.2 billion to $1.6 billion had been stolen and moved to a bunker in rural Lebanon 12 Oct 2014 Not long after American forces defeated the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein in 2003, caravans of trucks began to arrive at Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington on a regular basis, unloading an unusual cargo -- pallets of shrink-wrapped $100 bills. The cash, withdrawn from Iraqi government accounts held in the United States, was loaded onto Air Force C-17 transport planes bound for Baghdad. Over the next year and a half, $12 billion to $14 billion was sent to Iraq in the airlift, and an additional $5 billion was sent by electronic transfer. Exactly what happened to that money after it arrived in Baghdad became one of the many unanswered questions from the chaotic days of the American occupation, when billions were flowing into the country from the United States and corruption was rampant.

Sea level rise over past century unmatched in 6,000 years, says study

October 13, 2014 by legitgov

Sea level rise over past century unmatched in 6,000 years, says study 13 Oct 2014 The rise in sea levels seen over the past century is unmatched by any period in the past 6,000 years, according to a lengthy analysis of historical sea level trends. The reconstruction of 35,000 years of sea level fluctuations finds that there is no evidence that levels changed by more than 20cm in a relatively steady period that lasted between 6,000 years ago and about 150 years ago. This makes the past century extremely unusual in the historical record, with about a 20cm rise in global sea levels since the start of the 20th century.

Panic at London hospital after suspected Ebola patient arrives at A&E --Came on same day as high-profile NHS drill in how to respond to outbreak 13 Oct 2014 A London hospital was totally unprepared when a suspected Ebola patient walked into A&E, it was claimed today. Health authorities have carried out high-profile drills in a bid to show that Britain is ready for the feared arrival of the disease. But an insider at Lewisham hospital said the response when a potential case walked into casualty on Saturday night shows the reality of the situation is much worse. The man - who was later found not to have the virus - was not transferred to the specialist Royal Free Hospital, which is the only hospital in Britain equipped with a fully 'Ebola-proof' isolation unit.

Nuclear energy operators must provide the pills to "all residences, businesses and institutions" that could be at-risk of exposure from a radiation plume potentially released during an emergency.
