New York Times ´hit
by hackers from China´

BBC [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/31/2013 6:35:47 AM

Hackers from China have "persistently" infiltrated the New York Times for the last four months, the US paper says. It said the attacks coincided with its report into claims that the family of Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao had amassed a multi-billion dollar fortune. The hackers used methods which have been "associated with the Chinese military" to target the emails of the report´s writer, the paper said. China´s foreign ministry dismissed the accusations as "groundless". "To arbitrarily assert and to conclude without hard evidence that China participated in such hacking attacks is totally irresponsible," said spokesman Hong Lei.

If this is true, we probably wouldn´t notice any difference in the reporting, they BOTH are pro-communist.

Are they sure it was from China?

Maybe it was just Carlos Slim trying to get his money back.

This claim would assume the Chinese are adopting the Islamocrazy habit of attacking their suckups knowing they will continue to appease. Alternatively, it is a bogus claim simply designed to give the NYT some credibility as non-treasonous.

Or, it could be the truth.
Like BO´s skeet-shooting claims. Snort. Snicker.

Ukraine crisis:
Crimea MPs vote to join Russia
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article

MPs in the southern Ukrainian region of Crimea have voted to become part of the Russian Federation. Parliament said the decision would be put to the Crimean people for their verdict in a referendum on 16 March. A government minister in Kiev said they believe it would be unconstitutional for Crimea to join Russia. Crimea, a region whose population is mostly ethnic Russian, has been at the centre of tensions following the fall of Ukraine´s pro-Moscow president. Pro-Russian and Russian forces have been in de facto control of the peninsula, which already enjoys a degree of autonomy from Kiev, for

Today’s meeting of the Nato-Russia council to discuss Ukraine is a welcome development in the efforts to defuse the crisis. Dialogue is important not merely because, in Churchill’s words, “to jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war” but also because it is the best way to ensure that there are no misunderstandings or misjudgments. There is an assumption that the West is prepared to let the Russians annex Crimea, even though Vladimir Putin says this is not his aim.

Thirteen years ago I was invited, in the depths of a Russian winter, to give a speech at the Moscow School of Political Studies.

Sugar consumption should be halved to help reduce health problems such as obesity and tooth decay, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned. The WHO set out draft guidance advising a dramatic reduction in sugar intake amid growing evidence that it contributes to chronic diseases. The move follows calls by some leading scientists and campaigners for the current recommended daily limits on sugar intake to be halved to 5 percent of an individual’s overall calorie consumption--the equivalent of six “level” teaspoons a day for the average adult. The new guidance proposed by the WHO retains the current recommended limit of

Martin Wolf had a typically wise and trenchant op-ed in the Financial Times yesterday on the difficulties which face newly democratising countries, from Ukraine to Egypt. He rightly identifies four key factors underpinning successful democracies. The first is active and empowered citizens, who accept the importance and inevitability of dissent, and are committed to peaceful processes of political change. The second is honest "guardians": those in official but unelected positions of power, be they bureaucratic, legal or military, who use that power in the service of the common good. The third factor is well-functioning markets, which create prosperity and allow

The latest in a string of delays and alterations to the Affordable Care Act--nearly 30 in all-–has the federal government deciding to delay penalizing about 500,000 Americans who have what President Obama recently called ´substandard´ and ´junk´ health insurance plans. Penalties scheduled to hit as many as 1.5 million such Americans who have not yet seen cancellation notices from their insurers were set to kick in just before the November 2014 congressional election. But now that deadline has been pushed back until five weeks before the 2016 presidential contest, creating a potential headache for Hillary Rodham Clinton--Obama´s former secretary of

Russia and the United States held their first direct talks since the start of the Ukraine crisis on Wednesday night, raising hopes for a diplomatic breakthrough in the worst breach in relations between East and West since the end of the Cold War. Though progress was limited, Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, met his counterparts from the US, France, Germany and Britain in Paris and said further discussions would take place “in days to come”, which was echoed by John Kerry, the US Secretary of State.

Having effectively conceded that there is very little that can be done by way of meaningful military action or sanctions against Russia aggression, Europe seems to have decided on a different tac-- to flood Ukraine with money and aid in the hope that this might further detach Ukraine from the Russian bear´s embrace.[Snip] But hold on, what´s this?

Israel says it has seized a ship carrying advanced Iranian weapons made in Syria that was heading towards Gaza. The Panamanian-flagged vessel was boarded by Israeli naval commandos in the Red Sea off the coast of Sudan, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said. They found M-302 surface-to-surface missiles that were flown to Iran before being loaded onto the ship, it added. Hamas, the militant Palestinian Islamist movement that governs Gaza, strenuously denied any involvement. It accused Israel of concocting a story to "justify the blockade" of the coastal territory.

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony. Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to

If Jeb Bush runs for the Republican presidential nomination, he may face pushback from the tea party — and not just for the reasons you might expect. With Chris Christie faltering, the former Florida governor is reportedly calling major donors to discuss a possible presidential run. But tea party leaders, both nationally and in Florida, tell The Daily Caller that Bush would have trouble getting their support because of his strong backing of Common Core. The Common Core State Standards Initiative defines itself as “a state-led effort that established a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in
