The LAPD and the FBI are investigating the theft of tens of millions of dollars from a money storage facility in Sylmar on Easter Sunday, sources say. California officials are working with the FBI to investigate the theft of tens of millions of dollars from a money storage facility on Easter Sunday, law enforcement sources told ABC News. Sources told Eyewitness News the theft happened at a GardaWorld facility in Sylmar. The thieves broke into the facility undetected - without setting off alarms - by going through the roof and somehow getting into the money storage area, which may have been a vault, according to officials briefed on the investigation.

I'm guessing someone with inside knowledge is involved.

Interesting. #1 is probably right. A guy I knew pulled off the biggest ever bank robbery ever. He was caught and died in prison.

What? No motion detectors? Probably disabled because of false alarms. Flat roofs are usually no more than a sheet of plywood thick and can be cut quickly with a cordless saw. That hole in the wall appears to be on the hidden side of a tilt up building. I'm not surprised about this heist. Looks set up to me.

Might make a good idea for a movie. As other posters noted, there may have been some inside help for the heist.

Maybe the the Joebama administration said: we need to stampede people towards CBDC. How about a nice little heist to show that hard cold cash is NOT safe? But...if it had been $30 million in digital money stolen, the thieves wouldn't even have needed a getaway vehicle.

Either a big time or semi-big time inside job! It had to be someone who either worked in the place or someone who worked for a contractor doing some sort of long-term repair or renovation at that place giving them the opportunity to “case” the place in depth.

A common theme in crime movies is the fact that bank vaults are constructed to firmly secure the front door, while the security of the surrounding walls/roof are ignored. As many have suggested, there was likely inside help.

How AI is being used to prevent illegal fishing 3 replies
Posted by sunset 4/5/2024 4:34:04 PM Post Reply
Late last year, the Spanish government fined 25 Spanish-flagged fishing ships that had been operating near Argentina's territorial waters. The financial penalties were imposed because the vessels had illegally turned off the GPS-based automatic identification systems (AIS), which were transmitting their positions. This is often a sign that a vessel is engaged in illegal fishing. "It's estimated that illegal or unregulated fishing is as much as 20% of what's caught," says David Kroodsma, head of the research team at Global Fishing Watch. Such illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing may catch as much as 26 million tonnes of fish every year, or one in every five fish.

Israeli intelligence sources reveal use of ‘Lavender’ system in Gaza war and claim permission given to kill civilians in pursuit of low-ranking militants. The Israeli military’s bombing campaign in Gaza used a previously undisclosed AI-powered database that at one stage identified 37,000 potential targets based on their apparent links to Hamas, according to intelligence sources involved in the war. In addition to talking about their use of the AI system, called Lavender, the intelligence sources claim that Israeli military officials permitted large numbers of Palestinian civilians to be killed, particularly during the early weeks and months of the conflict.

Berkeley plans to repeal first US gas ban 5 replies

The city of Berkeley, California, has agreed to repeal the nation’s first-ever gas ban, raising questions about the fate of similar restrictions on fossil fuels across the West. Berkeley unveiled the decision about its 2019 restrictions on gas hookups for new buildings as part of a legal agreement Friday ending a lawsuit brought by the California Restaurant Association. Berkeley said it will stop enforcing the policy while it goes through the legal process of repealing the ban. The California Restaurant Association touted the settlement, saying it should set a precedent for dozens of cities and counties in California to rescind their own gas bans modeled after Berkeley’s.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. named the Bay Area lawyer, entrepreneur and philanthropist as his running mate. She brings some welcome cash to what will be a costly effort to gain ballot access. Nicole Shanahan is a wild card. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s vice presidential pick doesn’t have the kind of public persona typically associated with politicians. She’s not a frequent-flier on cable news, barely has a social media presence and is interested in some niche policy issues, like reproductive senescence, regenerative agriculture and gut biomes. But what Shanahan, 38, has is an abundance of wealth (which will come in handy as Kennedy mounts an expensive cross-country ballot access effort)

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by two dozen conservative state lawmakers that claimed ballot access initiatives by President Joe Biden and Gov. Josh Shapiro usurped the state Legislature’s authority to direct federal elections in the commonwealth. U.S. District Judge Jennifer P. Wilson’s one-page order on Tuesday grants motions by state and federal officials to dismiss the case. The order also denies a request by two dozen conservative lawmakers for a preliminary injunction to block the ballot access initiatives, including Shapiro’s executive order implementing automatic voter registration for driver’s license applicants. In a statement, Shapiro said automatic voter registration is safe, secure, efficient, and entirely within his administration’s authority.

The US and its allies have weighed striking Yemen’s Houthi militants after telling them to either halt their attacks on ships in the Red Sea or face unspecified action. Washington and a dozen nations this week warned the Iran-backed Houthis would “bear the responsibility of the consequences” if they persisted with their attacks in the crucial maritime trade artery. Several military and naval experts interviewed by Bloomberg have interpreted this as a threat of imminent strikes against the group, though such a move runs the risk of making matters worse, so more limited action is also a possibility.

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant flew to the US to meet with American senior officials regarding the ongoing negotiations for the release of the hostages and Israel's intention to operate in Rafah. According to IDF Maj.-Gen. Nimrod Shafer, one of the goals of the visit is to prevent an American arms embargo on Israel. In a conversation with Udi Segal and Anat Davidov on 103FM radio, Shafer added that "there is a difference between an embargo and taking certain measures. You can take all kinds of steps, for example, to slow down arms deliveries. Certain items say 'We are examining the request,' but never arrive.

Argentina is likely to finally buy US-origin F-16 fighters from Denmark, officially shelving the Chinese JF-17 Thunder Block-III jets. The deal marks the impact of the intense Great Power rivalry between the US and China in South America, where Washington is averse to having Beijing’s military equipment in its backyard. Likewise, Beijing too has been trying to leverage its advancements in defense aerospace technology by securing military sales to developing and Global South countries and presenting itself as an alternative to costly Western weapons. The announcement to this effect was made by Platform X user Milei Shelby, which the President himself ‘liked.’

The Israel Defense Forces on Monday accused Hamas gunmen of firing at troops from Shifa Hospital’s emergency room, maternity and burn wards, as the terror group claimed patients were dying due to the ongoing military operation in the facility. “Right now, Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists are barricading themselves inside Shifa hospital wards. Hamas is destroying Shifa Hospital,” IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said in an English-language video statement. “Hamas is firing from inside the Shifa emergency room and maternity ward and throwing explosive devices from the Shifa burn ward. Terrorists hiding around the hospital fired mortars at our forces, causing extensive damage to the hospital buildings.”

Japan’s Cabinet on Tuesday approved a plan to sell future next-generation fighter jets that it’s developing with Britain and Italy to other countries, in the latest move away from the country’s postwar pacifist principles. The contentious decision to allow international arms sales is expected to help secure Japan’s role in the joint fighter jet project and part of a move to build up the Japanese arms industry and bolster its role in global security. The Cabinet also endorsed a revision to Japan’s arms equipment and technology transfer guidelines to allow coproduced lethal weapons to be sold to countries other than the partners.

Gallant’s meeting with Austin will mark his first visit to the Pentagon as Israeli defense minister and follows his talks Monday with national security adviser Jake Sullivan and Secretary of State Antony Blinken,

The Office of Personnel Management, the principal agency overseeing federal government employees, has introduced guidelines preventing career civil servants from being reassigned as political appointees who can be terminated more swiftly from their positions. This move is a response to Trump’s ‘Schedule F’ directive in 2020, which sought to reclassify the role of tens of thousands of federal employees,

Fast food chain McDonald's will buy back all of its Israeli restaurants following a boycott of the brand after it was criticised for giving away thousands of free meals to Israeli soldiers. The move to donate meals to troops was later renounced by McDonald's franchises in some Muslim countries, highlighting the polarized regional politics that global corporations navigate during war. Some Western brands are feeling the impact of boycotts in Egypt and Jordan that have now caught on in some countries outside the Arab region including Muslim-majority Malaysia. The popular chain said it had reached an agreement with franchisee Alonyal for 225 outlets across the country employing 5,000 people.
