Oops! Pentagon loses billion-dollar hypersonic aircraft over Pacific Ocean 11 Aug 2011 The Pentagon lost contact with the Falcon HTV-2 as it attempted to conduct a hypersonic test flight over the Pacific Ocean. After successfully launching from Vandenberg Air Force base in California, the HTV-2 separated from the Minotaur IV rocket at a sub-orbital altitude and began its return to Earth. All seemed well until the billion dollar aircraft went silent during the gliding stage of the flight, when it was slated to fly above the Pacific at 20 times the speed of sound (13,000 mph), or Mach 20, in a series of complex maneuvers.

Verizon union members say strike worth hardship

August 10, 2011 by legitgov

Verizon union members say strike worth hardship --Job security, pensions at issue 10 Aug 2011 On Sunday, about 6,000 Verizon Communications Inc. employees in Massachusetts walked off the job after the unions and the company failed to reach an agreement on a new contract. The strike is unusual in its size - 45,000 people nationwide and one of the largest in a decade - and for its timing, during a period of historically high unemployment and concerns about another recession. The unions - the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and Communications Workers of America - are fighting to keep employee pensions, affordable health care benefits, and a clause that makes it more difficult for Verizon to lay off union workers.

Mark Duggan did not shoot at police, says IPCC --IPCC releases initial findings of ballistics tests in police shooting of Mark Duggan, whose death sparked London riots 09 Aug 2011 Mark Duggan, whose shooting by police sparked London's riots, did not fire a shot at police officers before they killed him, the Independent Police Complaints Commission said on Tuesday.
