Boehner and McConnell exposed.
"House conservatives were told a shutdown-averting vote last night bought them a week reprieve to strategize a new fight against President Obama's immigration orders. Democrats believe they've been promised a vote on a full-year funding bill by next Friday.
A week from now, one of those groups is going to be very disappointed—and likely irate at the deception of its own leadership."

Secondly, an ugly, violent and homicidal face of Islam is presented to the world. And third, to create an inconvenience for Iran."

This non-story of not-so-mysterious Siberian craters won't go away because it's great for propaganda. Here's the reality.
"Pingo is an Inuit term for an isolated, dome shaped hill, used to describe large ice-cored mounds found in the permafrost regions of Siberia and various other places in the Arctic. Pingos range in height from a few meters to more than 40 m (130 ft) and from a few meters to 1,000 m (3,300 ft) in diameter. Small pingos typically have rounded tops, but larger ones are commonly broken open at the top where melting of the ice core forms a crater resembling a volcanic cone Where they occur in stratified silt or sand, the beds commonly dip outward from the center, much like those adjacent to an intrusive body. The ice in the core of a pingo is typically massive and of segregation/injection origin. Tension fractures are common at the summit of the mound, but expansion of pingo ice is rare and short-lived. Ice up to 7 m (23 ft) thick has been found in pingos of Sweden. As the ice core melts, a small freshwater lake may occupy the summit crater that forms."

The IRS is investigating itself for criminal behavior because its inspector general found backup tapes of Lois Lerner's emails.
"The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Congress were irretrievably destroyed.
Investigators have already scoured 744 backup tapes and gleaned 32,774 unique emails, but just two weeks ago they found an additional 424 tapes that could contain even more Lerner emails, Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus told the House Oversight Committee in a rare late-night hearing meant to look into the status of the investigation.
“There is potential criminal activity,” Mr. Camus said."
IRS bigwigs flaunted their lies and criminality and the government did nothing. If it does anything now, it will find some poor IT guy and make him a scapegoat.
"Democrats questioned the independence of Inspector General J. Russell George, who is overseeing the investigation, saying he’s injected politics into his work.

“You’re not entitled to certain documents,” Mr. George said.
“Oh really? We’ll see about that, won’t we,” Mr. Connolly replied, saying that he questioned whether Mr. George could be trusted if he’s refusing to provide documents, yet is in charge of an investigation into whether the IRS stonewalled document requests."

"“So in the short term, if Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I’m doing is legal or not, they can have that vote.  I will veto that vote, because I’m absolutely confident that what we’re doing is the right thing to do.”"

Government hates science because it usually undermines political agendas.
"You would think that the Powers-That-Be would base their recommendations on evidence-based medicine. Well, you would think wrong. There was never any good evidence that we needed to lower our fat and cholesterol intake and substitute it for more refined carbohydrates in the form of grains. In fact, there was strong evidence that adjusting our diet the way the Powers-That-Be wanted us to would result in exactly what happened—more obesity, diabetes, and heart disease than we know what to do with."

Root causes of terrorism.
"Truly, US President Barack Obama’s recent call to address the root causes of violence, including that of the so-called "Islamic State" (IS) and al-Qaeda was a step in the right direction, but still miles away from taking the least responsibility for the mayhem that has afflicted the Middle East since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.
"The link is undeniable," Obama said in a speech at the State Department on 19 February "When people are oppressed and human rights are denied – particularly along sectarian lines or ethnic lines – when dissent is silenced, it feeds violent extremism. It creates an environment that is ripe for terrorists to exploit."
Of course, he is right. Every word. However, the underlying message is also clear: it’s everyone else’s fault but ours. Now, that’s hardly true, and Obama, once a strong critic of his predecessor’s war, knows it well."
The solution is easy, but our rulers will never go for it. The threat of terrorism makes them rich.

This place is in Chicago, and no, it’s not quite Abu Ghraib, but the eerie parallels with war on terror excesses are clear and deeply distressing.
The place is called Homan Square. Reportedly, lawyers are not allowed, and arrests are basically off books, meaning suspects disappear into a blackhole of bureaucracy for however long they’re held. If you can’t find your client, but they were taken away by police, that’s where they are likely to be. Suspects are denied lawyers for 12-24 hours. Kids as young as 15 have been taken there. One death has been reported, and numerous beatings. Ackerman relates the story of a NATO protester who was shackled for 17 hours, and not permitted to call a lawyer. Other attorneys claim similar stories of lost clients, and being barred from seeing them at Homan Square. MRAPs are reportedly parked outside the building."

The move is the latest in a series of steps large global banks have been discussing in recent months to discourage certain deposits due to new regulations and low interest rates."
Is it really about regulations, or are they trying to raise their reserve ratio?
"J.P. Morgan is making the moves because certain deposits are less profitable to handle than they used to be. New federal rules essentially penalize banks for holding deposits viewed as prone to fleeing during a crisis or a stressed environment. "

The differences between psychopaths and sociopaths.
"For starters, the definition of a sociopath isn’t so clear cut. Most people use the terms “sociopath” and “psychopath” interchangeably, and according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) both conditions are listed together under “Antisocial Personality Disorders”. They certainly share a lot in common, including a disdain for authority and social mores, recklessness, a lack of empathy, and violent tendencies.
But according to an article from Psychology Today, there are some significant differences as well. Sociopaths are more volatile, and can lash out unexpectedly. Furthermore, most crimes committed by them will be spontaneous and disorganized.
Psychopaths on the other hand are more cunning. Their crimes are well executed, and difficult for police to figure out. They excel at mimicking human emotions, and tend to have a good education and a steady job. They just fit right in. They’re the sorts of people who rise to the top of corporations, governments, and law firms. We probably don’t even how many psychopaths there are in the world, or what they’re really like. They’re simply too elusive to pin down."
That's how I always differentiated them.
"However, the biggest difference between psychopaths and sociopaths, is the context of their condition. Psychopathy is often considered to be a genetic condition, whereas sociopathy is considered a learned condition (often brought on by a volatile childhood). But more importantly, psychopaths hold no loyalties whatsoever. It doesn’t matter if they’re a member of your family, or someone you’ve known for years. If they think it’s in their best interest to hurt you, and they think they can get away with it, that’s exactly what they’ll do.
This can also be true for sociopaths, but only up to a certain extant. Sociopaths still have loyalty, and they can still feel remorse, empathy, and attachment, but they only feel that way for a limited number of people. It could be a close friend or a few members of their family. But everyone outside of that inner circle is fair game."
I'm skeptical of the genetic versus environmental distinction.
"They also have other, smaller tells that you can use to spot them. Because their outward personality is a blank slate, they’ll often talk in a somewhat monotone voice before they get to know you better (then they’ll know how they should talk to you), and they’ll usually leave a lengthy pause before answering any of your questions."
I think most people are that way. That's not abnormal.
"Sociopaths also won’t reveal very much about themselves. They’ll always try to keep the conversation about you, because for them, every conversation is an opportunity to extract information. However, to make the conversation seem more genuine, they’ll slip personal details to you from time to time. Pay close attention to these, because what they reveal to you is either an exaggerated truth, or an outright lie. Everything they tell you about themselves is designed to illicit sympathy and trust, and impart a sense of intimacy."
Most people don't reveal information to strangers or people they don't know well. Normal people exaggerate too. Normal people try to gain an advantage too. This is just selfishness. It's not the same.
"If approached with small talk, the sociopath is either going to ignore you or they’re going to turn it into an intimate conversation about you, depending on whether or not they want something from you."
This is spot on.

PC Magazine says Equipment Group malware is impossible to remove from computers. I doubt this is true. As more people look at it, they'll find a way. I don't know why re-flashing the hard drive firmware wouldn't remove it. Still, this illustrates how badly NSA has broken the internet. This malware isn't just deployed against foreigners, though it mainly is. It's also deployed in the US.
"The report said Equation has knowledge of the drives that goes way beyond public documentation released by vendors. Equation knows sets of unique ATA commands used by hard drive vendors to format their products. Most ATA commands are public, as they comprise a standard that ensures a hard drive is compatible with just about any kind of computer.
But there are undocumented ATA commands used by vendors for functions such as internal storage and error correction, Raiu said. “In essence, they are a closed operating system,” he said.
Obtaining such specific ATA codes would likely require access to that documentation, which could cost a lot of money, Raiu said.
The ability to reprogram the firmware of just one kind of drive would be “incredibly complex,” Raiu. Being able to do that for many kinds of drives from many brands is “close to impossible,” he said.
“To be honest, I don’t think there’s any other group in the world that has this capability,” Raiu said."

So hard disk drive vendors are complicit.
"Reflashing the drive, or replacing its firmware, is also not foolproof, since some types of modules in some types of firmware are persistent and can’t be reformatted, he said. "
Darn. This better spark a new hard drive architecture to prevent this activity.

Yemeni rebels willing to negotiate. They tried that all along, but the US wouldn't allow it.

McCain and Graham blast Obama for leak of plans to retake Mosul from ISIS. I have to agree with them on this.
"Mr. McCain demanded in a letter that Mr. Obama provide the name of the official who described to reporters Thursday how the Pentagon planned to send a force of 20,000 to 25,000 Iraqi security forces, Kurdish fighters and regional police to Mosul to weed out the city’s 1,000 to 2,000 Islamic State militants."
It takes more than ten times the force plus air support? Is ISIS full of supermen?

When Obama's appointee said jobs were needed to stop terrorism, I don't think she meant terrorism. She meant insurgents resisting invasion. They're not the same thing. I think of ISIS as a militia more than as terrorists. The point of terrorism is its done by people without the means to wage war. Insurgents and ISIS are waging war.

Phony pictures used as evidence of Russian aggression in Ukraine.
"In his argument for arming the Ukrainian government, Inhofe provided pictures of alleged Russian tanks driving deep into Ukraine as proof of Moscow’s nefarious intent. These pictures were subsequently proven to have been taken in 2008, and in Georgia. Inhofe’s office quickly backtracked, stating that they had received the images from a delegation of Ukrainian commanders and officials."
If he wasn't so desperate for evidence, he would have tried to verify it.

Health Care

Court protects hospital from liability for data breech that led to identity theft of patients.
"Interestingly, the ruling turns on a high profile case involving government surveillance dating back to the Carter administration, as this reading notes. In 1978, The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Clapper v. Amnesty International USA, striking down a suit filed by reporters, attorneys and the human rights group to challenge part of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The plaintiffs said they feared that their sources, colleagues and clients would be targets of U.S. government surveillance, and the threat would force them to take expensive security measures to keep their communications private. But the Supreme Court ruled otherwise, saying the threat of government surveillance was hypothetical, but not “certainly impending.”"
That's funny.

It's very likely Ebola spreads through air, as many have been saying all along and in contrast what the self-proclaimed experts at the CDC told us.
