Computer problems halt departures
at Southern California airports

Los Angeles Times, by Ruben Vives & Kate Mather

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/30/2014 6:59:09 PM

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a ground stop for several Southern California airports this afternoon because of computer problems. Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport in Orange County and Bob Hope Airport in Burbank said their facilities were affected by the order, which means flights can land but not depart. Airport officials did not have an immediate estimate for when the ground stop would be lifted. The order did not prevent arriving flights from landing, said LAX spokeswoman Amanda Parson. She did not know how many flights were affected by the FAA´s request, which was made around 2 p.m.

Comments:
Take this from a tech support person, these are not "glitches," anymore that the hardware and software debacle called 0bamaCare. At the least, probing or hacking that needs Homeland Security to find immediately find out why and fix quickly.

Washington Times, by Douglas Ernst    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/30/2014 6:44:10 PM     Post Reply
Students who graduate from the University of California-Berkeley can expect to spend roughly $120,000 for a four-year degree. This year, they still must pay an extra $10 to attend their own graduation ceremony, where they will also listen to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Students who do not cough up the cash before Wednesday, April 30 for the campus-wide commencement ceremony have been told they will not be able to attend on May 17 at California Memorial Stadium. “[The money is] to absorb the cost of commencement,” Lila Blanco, director of external relations and the Office of Protocol at the

Peaches Geldof, found unresponsive at her suburban London home on April 7, died of a heroin overdose, an inquest Thursday is expected to show. An autopsy days after her death was inconclusive, but the 25-year-old TV personality died from the drug, her 11-month-old son by her side, the Times of London reported late Wednesday. The Times proclaimed the news on the front page of Thursday’s edition. An inquest, to determine the facts of her death, is expected to begin Thursday. The blond beauty leaves behind her husband, musician Tom Cohen, and two young sons. She is the daughter of Irish singer and songwriter Bob Geldof

White House Wants to
Lift Ban on Interstate Tolls

Washington - Drivers on the nation’s Interstates could soon be paying more to travel. A transportation proposal sent to Congress by the Obama administration on Tuesday would remove a prohibition on tolls for existing Interstate highways, clearing the way for states to raise revenue on roads that drivers currently use at no cost. Congress banned tolls on Interstates in 1956 when it created the national highway system under President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The administration said lifting the toll ban would help address a shortfall in funding to pay for highway repairs. The tolls, along with other changes, could provide an

Wisconsin voter ID law
struck down by federal judge

Milwaukee - A federal judge in Milwaukee struck down Wisconsin´s voter identification law Tuesday, declaring that a requirement that voters show a state-issued photo ID at the polls imposes an unfair burden on poor and minority voters. US District Judge Lynn Adelman sided with opponents of the law, who argued that low-income and minority voters aren´t as likely to have photo IDs or the documents needed to get them. (Snip) Adelman's decision invalidates Wisconsin's law and means voter ID likely won't be in place for the fall elections, when Republican Gov. Scott Walker faces re-election.

Supreme Court OKs EPA pollution rules:
another blow for coal

US coal plants in some upwind states are going to have to clean up their act. The Supreme Court upheld Tuesday a 2011 federal rule governing the amount of air pollution some states can let drift across their borders into their downwind neighbors. The 6-2 ruling is a win for the Obama administration, which has leveraged executive powers to curb pollutants from the nation´s power sector. Under Tuesday´s ruling, some 28 Midwestern and Southern states will have to cut emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide from coal-fired power plants. Supporters of the law cheered the ruling, saying it would protect millions of Americans

   

 

  


 
Amanda Knox ´delivered
fatal blow to Meredith Kercher´

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/29/2014 8:21:26 PM     Post Reply
The Italian judges who reinstated the guilty verdict against Amanda Knox say she delivered the fatal knife blow to UK student Meredith Kercher. Explaining their ruling, the judges said Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, killed Miss Kercher after a violent argument. Knox and Sollecito were originally convicted of the murder in 2007. They were acquitted on appeal in 2011, but that ruling was overturned in January. Knox, who is currently in the US, was sentenced to 28 years and six months. Her former boyfriend received 25 years. Both had pleaded not guilty. (Snip) But it was Knox who "delivered the only mortal blow",

The U.S. Navy plans to build 10 new SSN 774 Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarines over the next five years. Price tag: $17.6 billion. A contract with General Dynamics Electric Boat and chief subcontractor Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipbuilding was announced Monday, the Navy Times reported. “The Block IV award is the largest shipbuilding contract in U.S. Navy history in terms of total dollar value,” said Rear Adm. Dave Johnson, program executive officer for submarines at Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), the Navy Times reported. It “builds upon the Virginia-class program’s successful Navy and

Congressman Grayson Seeks Annulment
After Accusing Wife of Bigamy

A Florida congressman´s already ugly divorce has taken a bizarre turn after he said in court papers that he was never actually married to his wife of 24 years. In documents filed last week in 9th Circuit Court in Orange County and made public Tuesday by his lawyers, Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., accuses Lolita Grayson of having still been married to another man when they were wed in 1990. Lolita Grayson filed for divorce in January, but Alan Grayson´s filing last week seeks an annulment — arguing that there was never a legal marriage in the first place. Alan Grayson's lawyers, who didn't respond to requests for comment on Tuesday, backed up

When can cops search cellphones?
Supreme Court to hear cases (+video)

Washington - The US Supreme Court on Tuesday takes up two cases testing whether the police, after placing someone under arrest, are free to examine the full contents of the arrestee’s cellphone without first obtaining a search warrant. Two statistics illustrate the broad national implications of a ruling by the high court. Ninety percent of Americans own a cell phone. Roughly 12 million Americans are arrested each year. The case arrives at the court at a time of growing national unease about secret government programs designed to collect and store massive amounts of information about Americans through various forms of

San Francisco - No word yet on when a fix for a recently-discovered security flaw in Internet Explorer might be available. The flaw led the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday to advise Americans to switch to a different browser until it´s corrected. Microsoft, which makes Internet Explorer, had not posted any new news about the problem since Saturday. Other nations, including the United Kingdom and Sweden, are making the same suggestion. "Users should also consider using alternative browsers, such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox; and ensure that their antivirus software is current and regularly updated,"

Keystone supporters push
for swift Senate vote
Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/29/2014 7:40:52 PM     Post Reply
Supporters of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline proposal are requesting a quick Senate vote on legislation to approve construction of the project delayed indefinitely by the Obama administration and vehemently opposed by environmentalists. Pipeline advocates in the Senate, who include several Democrats on the ballot next fall as well as Republicans, hold a clear majority. They also may command more than the 60 votes needed to overcome blocking tactics by opponents, but they appear to be short of the two-thirds majority that would be needed to override any veto by President Barack Obama.

With his “gold-digger” ex-girlfriend holding 100 hours of damning, unreleased tape recordings, babbling billionaire bigot Donald Sterling is pleading for the mercy rule. The 80-year-old Los Angeles Clippers owner has reached out to the attorney of his 31-year-old former mistress, V. Stiviano, begging, “How can we make this go away?” according to a report. Sterling is scrambling to salvage his reputation and hang on to his team after recordings surfaced over the weekend that revealed him launching a racist tirade about Stiviano publicly associating with African-American athletes.

What should the NBA do about Donald Sterling? The answer is easy if you are a columnist, or Magic Johnson or Michael Jordan or LeBron James, or a fan disgusted by the Clippers owner´s racist rant. You can say you are "obviously disgusted" (Jordan), that you will never attend a Clippers game as long as Sterling owns the team (Johnson) or that there is "no room" for Sterling in the NBA (James). You can be proud, knowing you took a stand. But if you are commissioner Adam Silver, the question gets complicated. People demanding that Silver get rid of Sterling

Torrance, CA - Toyota Motor Corp´s decision to move its North American sales headquarters from California to Texas was met by disbelief in Torrance, this Los Angeles exurb where the Japanese car manufacturer has run its U.S. operations since 1982. Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto, looking grim, said outside city hall on Monday that he had been blindsided by the move. A few feet away sat Pat Simpson, a Torrance resident for over 60 years, with her head in her hands. "Why do they want to tear this place apart?" Simpson, 72, asked. Scotto said his first inkling of Toyota´s decision to move to

John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, has made a commendable attempt to end the rancorous dispute between Israel and the Palestinians. [Snip] Having expended so much effort, it is only natural that Mr Kerry should feel a deep sense of frustration that the talks--as so many predicted--have run into the ground after Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, last week announced the suspension of his country’s participation. This was in response to the united accord struck by Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, with the Islamist Hamas group, which Israel considers a terrorist organisation.

Secretary of State John F. Kerry has stepped in it again — with a gaffe that this time not only makes him look foolish but makes a mess of U.S. foreign policy and destroys any chance he had of realizing his legacy pipe dream of brokering Middle East peace. In a private meeting with senior international officials Friday, Kerry said that if the Israelis and Palestinians can’t achieve a two-state solution, Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state with second-class citizens.” Israelis are aghast — especially with Kerry’s remarks being reported yesterday on Holocaust Remembrance Day — and have started issuing calls for

One aspect of the scandal, anyway. The administration has released a series of emails in response to FOIA requests by Judicial Watch. You can read them here. This one, by Benjamin Rhodes, a White House political operative, shows the administration’s priorities on the Friday before Susan Rice’s infamous tour of the Sunday talk shows. (Snip for graphic)From the earliest hours after the attack, this is how the Obama administration saw Benghazi. The overriding imperative was to deflect attention from the “broader failure of policy” that led to the disaster. Roger Simon says these emails are grounds for impeachment. I wouldn’t go

U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman sided with opponents of the law, who argued that low-income and minority voters aren’t as likely to have photo IDs or the documents needed to get them.

Adelman’s decision invalidates Wisconsin’s law and could set a precedent for similar legal challenges in Texas, North Carolina and elsewhere.

New White House e-mails made public Tuesday by conservative Judicial Watch further support that the Obama team wanted then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to stress that a video disparaging the Prophet Muhammad was the catalyst for a series of anti-American protests across the Islamic world, including the deadly attacks on the Benghazi mission in September 2012. In an e-mail with the subject line: “Prep Call with Susan,” deputy national security adviser for strategic communications Ben Rhodes wrote that one of the goals before Rice went on the Sunday news shows after the killing of four Americans was to “underscore these

Larry Johnson was a junior college transfer who became the top star of the 1989-1991 Running Rebels of UNLV, leading them to two final four appearances and one championship. He later had a successful ten year NBA career with the Charlotte Hornets and the New York Knicks. In 1993, Johnson signed what was at the time the most lucrative NBA contract in history -- $84 million over 12 years. Nevertheless Johnson apparently believes that NBA players, despite their compensation levels, are still slaves to their white masters, and wants a new all black league.

Obama´s Asia trip: A tired president

Barack Obama’s Asia tour had the look and feel of a tired, uninterested president simply going through the motions. Other than just showing up, Obama did precious little to advance our interests or demonstrate his oft-promised “pivot” to Asia. The trip was instead overshadowed by Ukraine’s continuing crisis and the collapse of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. And the visit’s real legacy, the spreading impression of U.S. lassitude and weakness, is profoundly dangerous. In particular, Obama made no progress on Asia’s most pressing issue, Beijing’s assertive territorial claims in the East and South China Seas, thus missing a significant chance to deter future Chinese belligerence. Obama

Three leading Republican senators are calling on the Obama administration to identify who briefed former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice in advance of her Sunday show appearances where she blamed a video for the Benghazi attack. Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and John McCain, R-Ariz., wrote to leaders on the House and Senate Foreign Relations committees asking them to compel the administration to explain the "taking points." In the letter first obtained by Fox News, the senators cite the recent testimony of former CIA acting and deputy director Michael Morell before the House Intelligence Committee, where he said it

After this weekend, it´s probably safe to say that Sarah Palin is done. Like Jesse Ventura or Ross Perot, she may show up every once in a while to hurl red meat or use stunt cameos to remind us a little of her awkward charms. But recent events seem to confirm that she is an Obama-era novelty politician — and not much else. First she gave a speech to the NRA in which she joked that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists, offending people who otherwise make up her base. Next, Robert Costa reported on the ever-smaller crowds that have
