Medical files to phones, personal
details stolen on industrial scale

Sunday Telegraph [UK], by Edward Malnick

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 9/1/2013 1:25:48 AM

Analysis by The Sunday Telegraph shows that the authorities have investigated more than 700 cases of sensitive data being obtained illegally from organisations such as mobile telephone companies, councils and the NHS in the last five years. The cases cover the details of hundreds of thousands of individuals, and include instances where confidential medical information was stolen from official databases. In some cases the personal information was sold on to marketing firms, providing leads for Britain’s burgeoning cold-calling industry. Many records were stolen by employees seeking a profit, while in other cases, staff used the data in personal feuds.

Comments:
We can probably guarantee that under Oh!Care, the outcome will be worse.

Soon as we get a barcode on our bodies, they won´t be able to steal our ID´s. /s

How do you know the person in the doctor´s office or that navigator wasn´t flipping burgers and buying drugs last week ?

Anybody that holds a profession license doesn´t worry about anyone taking their information, because the State sells it.
Thanks to the Internet, thieves get a photo of your home with a car in the driveway with the license number and map to your door.

The goobermint sells all our private information already. Selling our medical information and identity would be routine. Identify theft anyone? Using data for political purposes against your opponent is also in the works.

Could a four-year-old thriller unlock
the mystery of flight MH370?
Telegraph [UK], by Toby Young    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/16/2014 5:10:52 PM     Post Reply
As the story of MH370 unfolds, becoming more mysterious by the day, I keep being reminded of a thriller I read four years ago. Bolt Action, a novel by Charlie Charters, is set on board exactly the same plane--not just a Boeing 777, but a 777-200ER. In addition, the plane belongs to the national carrier of a Muslim state, though in Bolt Action´s case it´s Pakistan not Malaysia. The thriller poses the question: What if a plane is hijacked but no one can regain control because the cockpit door is locked? Since 9/11 all passenger jets have bolt armatures fitted

The Crimea crisis could

Financial markets in the West have so far remained remarkably sanguine in the face of the crisis in Ukraine. But in the wake of Crimea´s referendum, which sealed Vladimir Putin’s effective theft of the peninsula, some form of sanctions is almost inevitable. How long, then, will the calm continue? [Snip] Around a third of Europe’s gas, coal and oil imports come from Russia, and there has been massive direct investment by foreign firms. A military response to Russian aggression has already been ruled out by Western leaders. In Vladimir Putin’s calculation, meaningful sanctions are not much of an option, either.

Set amid the vast birch woods that stretch towards the Russian border, the Latvian city of Daugavpils is not so much in the Kremlin´s backyard as right on its doorstep. Yet should Vladimir Putin ever drop in for a vodka at the Artillery Cellar Club, the reception may prove as icy as the nearby River Daugava in Spring. "This is the only bar in town where the Russian language is banned," smiles owner Andrejs Faibusevics, 47, who runs the snug live music venue with his wife Inara.

Observers, journalists not welcome to
watch vote count at polling station

Kyiv Post [Ukraine], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/16/2014 3:39:45 PM     Post Reply
SIMFEROPOL, Crimea--If respected international election observers had been allowed to watch Crimea´s referendum on whether to join Russia or merely gain greater autonomy from Ukraine, they would have found plenty of violations. After polls closed at 8 p.m., more signs of trouble surfaced, with Kyiv Post and even Russian journalists being aggressively barred from watching the vote count in one polling station in central Simferopol. Police smashed a TV camera of a Russian crew. [Snip] "We just wanted to formally confirm the vote count, but they pushed me away," Bontman said. "We don´t have things like this in Russia."

Gun store owner refuses to hand over

The owner of a California arms store says a federal agency has raided his property in search of the names of customers who purchased gun parts, despite a temporary restraining order preventing it from doing so. Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor in Oceanside, says that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agents have threatened to shut down his business unless he hands over a list of 5,000 customers who bought AR-15 lower receivers, the sale of which the ATF says is illegal. The receiver is the part of a firearm that houses the operating parts. Ares

Afghanistan: all but one
British frontline base pull out

British troops have pulled out of all but one frontline outpost in Helmand province in one of the final acts of the 13-year mission in Afghanistan. Just one base, Sterga 2, remains in Helmand outside Camp Bastion, as the UK works towards withdrawing all combat troops by the end of this year. In an operation lasting more than a month, three important bases have been closed or handed over to Afghan control in Helmand, where 448 UK soldiers have died since 2001. Main Operating Base Lashkar Gah--the former headquarters of UK military forces in Afghanistan--and Patrol Base Lashkar Gah Durai

Former NFL star and ‘Inside the NFL’ host Ahmad Rashad is reportedly dating President Barack Obama’s senior adviser. Rumors have been flying all over the capital that Rashad and Valerie Jarrett are an item, but no one appears willing to confirm or deny the supposed romance. [Snip] The former Minnesota Viking’s appearances at Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party earlier this year and at the president’s unveiling of his ‘Mr Bother’s Keeper’ initiative aimed at helping young black man find career paths only further stoked the rumor mill flames. Whispers grew into chatter though when Rashad was seen playing golf with

CYBER HIJACK? Chilling new theory

A chilling theory suggests the missing Malaysian Airlines plane could have been hijacked using a mobile phone or USB stick. An anti-terror expert believes the speed, altitude and direction of the aircraft could have been changed, simply by sending radio signals from a small remote device. A framework of ´codes´ created by cyber terrorists would also be able to get into the plane´s in-flight entertainment system and override the security software. It is also believed, once the systems have been successfully hacked, the plane could be landed by remote control. [Snip] Dr Sally Leivesley, a former Home Office official, said:

Russian tanks and paratroopers took up positions on the Ukrainian border last night as Vladimir Putin rejected pleas from the West to pull back his forces. [Snip] Exclusive amateur pictures obtained by The Mail on Sunday show tanks, armoured vehicles and multiple rocket-launchers rolling into the Belgorod region in advance of today’s referendum in Crimea which is expected to hand control of the strategically-important Black Sea peninsula to Moscow.

The UK Independence Party is on course to win the largest share of the vote in May´s European Elections, according to a new poll. The party is currently on 30 percent, with Labour in second place on 28. The ComRes poll for the Independent on Sunday, which bases its European voting figures on the 38 percent of respondents who said they are "absolutely certain" to vote, is the first poll for some time to ask a question specifically about the European elections. The Conservatives, who maintain that they are the only party who can offer a referendum on the EU,

Last week, a deputy head teacher in Birmingham, called Razwan Faraz, tweeted a newspaper article casting doubt on claims that hard-line Muslims were plotting to take over some of the city’s state schools. [Snip] Investigations by The Telegraph, separate to and in parallel with the “Trojan Horse” letter, reveal that there is indeed an organised group of Muslim teachers, education consultants, school governors and activists dedicated to furthering what one of them describes as an “Islamising agenda” in Birmingham’s schools. And Mr Faraz should know: he is at the heart of it. They convene, among other places, on WhatsApp, a

America´s conspiracy theorists are having fun with the disappearance of flight MH370. And, yes, I do mean fun. While relatives of the missing passengers endure agonies of grief and probably false hope, Alex Jones of Infowars.com, never one to let human tragedy dampen down wild and lucrative speculation, is spreading the following rumour: that the Boeing 777 has been spirited away and is being turned into a "nuclear, chemical or biological weapon".

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained. Obama was careful to specify that people who can´t afford Obamacare will not suffer a

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

Here´s an astonishing poll: David Freddoso at Conservative Intelligence Briefing links to a report by the Washington Post´s Aaron Blake that West Virginia 3rd district incumbent Rep. Nick Rahall trails Republican challenger state Sen. Evan Jenkins by a 54-percent to 40-percent margin. The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

President Barack Obama hit back at critics calling him out for his "mom jeans. "I´ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama said Friday in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest. "The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher´s mound and I didn´t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I´ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well."

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost.

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind.

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

BOSTON- Boston´s Irish-American mayor will not march in the city´s St. Patrick´s Day parade on Sunday after failing to hammer out a deal with organizers to allow a group of gay and lesbian activists to march openly. Mayor Marty Walsh had tried to negotiate a deal with organizers, the conservative Allied War Veteran´s Council, to allow members of MassEquality, one of Massachusetts´ largest gay activist groups, to join the parade. "So much of our Irish history has been shaped by the fight against oppression," Walsh, the city´s first Irish-American mayor in 20 years, said in a statement. "As mayor of
