At least he didn´t end up in the trunk of a car enroute to a shallow grave in upstate NY as Billy Batts!

RIP Frank, thanks for bringing all those characters to life!

Reuters, by Paresh Dave    Original Article

Las Vegas - Smartphones, PCs and servers across the world have received software updates in recent days to plug security gaps on computer chips that cyber security researchers have described as the most serious threat in years. Researchers identified the problem last year, shared details with chip manufacturers last summer, and then made a public announcement Jan. 3. What is the problem? The vulnerabilities, known as Meltdown and Spectre, can allow passwords and other sensitive data on chips to be read. The flaws result from the way computers try to guess what users are likely to do next, a process called speculative

Reimposing Strict Sanctions on Iran

Washington - President Trump has again stopped short of reimposing draconian sanctions on Iran that could break up its nuclear deal with world powers, two people briefed on his decision said on Thursday, but he is expected to give Congress and European allies a deadline to improve the deal or the United States will pull out of it. (Snip) Mr. Trump’s action, which the White House will announce on Friday, is the third time he has given a reprieve to the agreement brokered by President Barack Obama, despite having labeled it “the worst deal ever” and threatening repeatedly to rip it up.

House Extends Surveillance Law,
Rejecting New Privacy Safeguards
New York Times, by Charlie Savage, Eileen Sullivan*    Original Article

Washington - The House of Representatives voted on Thursday to extend the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program for six years with minimal changes, rejecting a push by a bipartisan group of lawmakers to impose significant privacy limits when it sweeps up Americans’ emails and other personal communications. The vote, 256 to 164, centered on an expiring law that permits the government, without a warrant, to collect communications from United States companies like Google and AT&T of foreigners abroad — even when those targets are talking to Americans. Congress had enacted the law in 2008

U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Thursday urged President Donald Trump to close the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. The California Democrat´s request coincided with a lawsuit filed by 11 Guantanamo prisoners, who want the Trump administration to release them. Feinstein, who serves on the Senate´s Judiciary and Intelligence committees, has been fighting against the detention facility since its creation 16 years ago, under President George W. Bush, (Snip) “This prison has cost taxpayers more than $5 billion, and the propaganda value for terrorists has been even greater,” Feinstein said in a statement on the 16th

The upmarket underwear company that supplied lingerie to the Queen has had its warrant scrapped after a tell-all book gave details of royal fittings. Rigby & Peller held the royal warrant for 57 years, but was stripped of support when June Kenton, who transformed it into a world-leading retailer, wrote a book about her work. The 82-year-old stayed on the firm´s board and continued to fit the Queen´s bras at Buckingham Palace even when Belgian company Van de Velde bought her majority stake in 2011. Her professional relationship with Queen Elizabeth II came to an end shortly after her book - title Storm in a D-Cup -

Outgoing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he believes he would “absolutely” be the president if Donald Trump had decided not to run, according to a report Sunday. “It’s incredibly frustrating to think to yourself, ‘Wow, if this guy were not in the race, we’d win this thing,´” Christie told NJ.com, describing internal polling by his campaign. “And I absolutely believe if Trump had not gotten into the race, I think we would have won.” Christie, who leaves office Jan. 16 to make way for Democratic Gov.-elect Phil Murphy, also conceded that his standing as governor and presidential candidate was damaged by

Washington - A Trump administration official said Friday that a revived investigation of the Clinton Foundation "has been going on for months." The Hill newspaper reported that FBI agents from Little Rock, Arkansas, recently conducted an interview with a potential witness. The paper said the Justice Department "has launched a new inquiry" into the foundation. But the administration official said the investigation was quietly re-opened several months ago.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plans on briefing the public about preparing for a nuclear war. The CDC on Thursday posted a notice for a Jan. 16 discussion about the topic at its headquarters in Atlanta. “While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” the notice reads. “Despite the fear surrounding such an event, planning and preparation can lessen deaths and illness,” it adds. “While federal, state, and local agencies will lead the immediate response efforts, public health will play a key role in responding.”

President Trump on Friday dissed and dismissed Michael Wolff’s newly released White House tell-all as a distraction from what he described as the unraveling Russia collusion "hoax." “Well, now that collusion with Russia is proving to be a total hoax and the only collusion is with Hillary Clinton and the FBI/Russia, the Fake News Media (Mainstream) and this phony new book are hitting out at every new front imaginable.

A US government watchdog will investigate how prepared toxic waste sites are for natural disasters and climate change, BuzzFeed News has learned. In December, after an intense hurricane season that impacted dozens of federally managed “Superfund” sites, 10 senators asked the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to investigate these sites’ vulnerability to extreme weather. (Snip) These types of problems made it “evident that the potential public health harm from Superfund sites being impacted by natural disasters needs to be examined,” Tyrone Gayle, a spokesman for Sen. Kamala Harris’s office, told BuzzFeed News by email.

California Bill Seeks Ban on
Fossil-Fueled Vehicles by 2040
Bloomberg News, by Ryan Beene    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/3/2018 8:28:53     Post Reply
California would ban the sale of new cars and trucks powered by fossil fuels in 2040 under legislation introduced Wednesday in the state legislature. "We’re at an inflection point: we’ve got to address the harmful emissions that cause climate change," Democratic Assemblymember Phil Ting, the bill’s author, said in a statement. If the measure becomes law, by January 1, 2040, all new passenger vehicles sold in California would have to be so-called zero emission vehicles such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel cell cars. More cars are sold each year in California than in any other state -- and more than in some countries.

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein suggested a “bad cold” may have impaired her mental faculties and caused her to release Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee without telling committee chairman Chuck Grassley. Feinstein published Simpson’s testimony on Tuesday, catching Republicans by surprise. Simpson’s testimony, taken during August of last year, covered his firm’s role in producing the infamous anti-Trump dossier for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. Feinstein, 84, expressed regret on Wednesday for keeping Sen. Grassley in the dark, and suggested it was because of a “bad cold.” “The one regret I have is that I

President Donald Trump, frustrated with America´s continued responsibility for immigrants fleeing Third World natural disasters, asked members of Congress Thursday in vulgar terms why the United States had to shoulder such a burden. ´Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?´ Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment to The Washington Post. Trump was reportedly speaking about Haitians and citizens of various African nations. Instead, he said, the U.S. should seek to assimilate people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with a day earlier. Unlike Haiti

Trump has really done it now. He’s spoken candidly again, referring to several nations a “s—hole” countries, according to media accounts. CNN is having a complete meltdown. Of course, if all of these countries are so wonderful, why is there such an outcry against sending aliens from those countries back home? Meanwhile, we know that Trump’s approval ratings are miserable. He’s lost ground among just about every demographic group, except. . . Wait, what? Who??!! No, this can’t be right.

Sometimes you just cant win. Former president Obama is finalizing plans for his Obama Presidential Center, which will be built in Chicago, Illinois and will be within a stone’s throw of the University of Chicago.(Snip) The library’s design and location has been a source of controversy itself within the Chicago community. In a recent letter, over 100 members of the University of Chicago faculty and dozens of community groups strongly condemn Obama’s plan. Why? Because, according to the professors, the Obama Presidential Center wastes millions of taxpayer dollars in an already broke state, destroys a public park and is “socially regressive” to

The Yale University psychology professor who called President Trump “mentally impaired” appears to lack a valid license to practice psychiatry in her home state of Connecticut. The professor, Bandy Lee, made the headlines over the past few days when she made a diagnosis of the president as suffering from a “mental impairment” that would disqualify him from the highest office in the land. Following Lee’s comments, the American Psychiatric Association released a statement on Tuesday warning members of its profession to refrain from making public diagnoses of public figures like Trump without a proper medical exam. “We at the APA call for an

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that while he supports additional barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border, he believes some of the estimated costs for President Trump’s border wall are too high to justify. "I remain a fiscal conservative, even on the wall, so I’m not excited about spending $20, $30, $40 billion on a wall. I’m still a believer that we don’t have money to spend. We’re $700 billion in the hole,” Paul said on CNN.  “And while I will vote for money for barriers, I’m not voting for $40 billion for barriers,” Paul added.  A report last week detailed Trump’s

If we are to believe the transcript of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson´s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, released unexpectedly by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the search for a smoking gun in the dossier scandal may lead us to a dead body, at least according to Simpson´s lawyer: During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in August 2017, Glenn Simpson was questioned about whether he tried to "assess the credibility" of sources behind information uncovered by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who compiled the dossier. "Yes, but I´m not going to get into sourcing information," Simpson
