#754553 Parliament shooting: Woman dies in Westminster attack

A woman has died and a police officer has been stabbed in the Houses of Parliament in London, in what police are treating as a terrorist incident.
The attacker, who was shot by police officers, is reported to have earlier mowed down several pedestrians as he drove a car across Westminster Bridge.
He crashed it into railings before running into the Palace of Westminster and stabbing the officer.
A Downing Street source said Prime Minister Theresa May was safe.
Prime Minister Theresa May was seen being ushered into a silver Jaguar car as what sounded like gunfire rang out at Parliament during the incident.
MPs said they had heard three or four gunshots and staff inside Parliament were told to stay inside their offices.
Commons Leader David Lidington told MPs the "alleged assailant was shot by armed police".
Tom Peck, political editor for the Independent, tweeted: "There was a loud bang. Screams. Commotion. Then the sound of gunshots. Armed police everywhere."

Press Association political editor Andrew Woodcock witnessed the scenes unfolding from his office window overlooking New Palace Yard.
"I heard shouts and screams from outside and looked out, and there was a group of maybe 40 or 50 people running round the corner from Bridge Street into Parliament Square.
"They appeared to be running away from something.

"As the group arrived at the Carriage Gates, where policemen are posted at the security entrance, a man suddenly ran out of the crowd and into the yard.
"He seemed to be holding up a long kitchen knife.
"I heard what sounded like shots - I think about three of them - and then the next thing I knew there were two people lying on the ground and others running to help them.
"Armed police were quickly on the scene and I heard them shouting to people to get out of the yard."
'Mowed down'
An eye witness, Radoslaw Sikorski, a senior fellow at Harvard's Centre for European Studies, posted a video to Twitter showing people lying injured in the road on Westminster Bridge.

He wrote: "A car on Westminster Bridge has just mowed down at least 5 people."
Scotland Yard said it was called to a firearms incident on Westminster Bridge amid reports of several people injured.
Transport for London said Westminster underground station has been shut at the police's request, and buses diverted.
Mr Lidington said: "It seems that a police officer has been stabbed, that the alleged assailant was shot by armed police.
"An air ambulance is currently attending the scene to remove the casualties.
"There are also reports of further violent incidents in the vicinity of the Palace of Westminster but I hope colleagues on all sides will appreciate that it'd be wrong of me to go into further details until we have confirmation from the police and from the House security authorities about what is going on."

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has has retained the title of the world’s richest man for the fourth year in a row, with a record 2,043 billionaires worldwide, Forbes magazine’s annual list revealed.
Bill Gates wealth has been estimated by Forbes at $86 billion as the tech mogul and philanthropist earned around $11 billion over the last 12 months. 
Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett took second spot on the list, which was released Monday, with $75.6 billion in the bank.
The podium was completed by Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, who is worth $72.8 billion, according to the magazine.
 
The rest of the top 10 includes Spanish clothing retailer Amancio Ortega ($71.3 billion), Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook in fifth ($56 billion), Mexican telecom magnate Carlos Slim Helu ($54.5 billion), Oracle founder Larry Ellison ($52.2 billion), US entrepreneurs Charles and David Koch ($48.3 billion each) as well as financial data and news mogul Michael Bloomberg ($47.5 billion).

#754102 Pyongyang declares ‘rebirth of rocket industry’ after new engine test

Posted by DFighter on 19 March 2017 - 05:51 AM

North Korea has performed a ground test of a “new-type” engine, designed to boost country’s “capability in the field of outer space.” However, in contrast to the usual saber-rattling, Pyongyang did not use the opportunity to tout the potential military use of the tech.
Kim Jong-un attended the test of the “new-type high-thrust engine” at the Sohae satellite-launching site early on Sunday, state KCNA news agency reported. The engine would give the country an opportunity to “consolidate the scientific and technological foundation to match the world-level satellite delivery capability in the field of outer space development,” KCNA said, citing country’s leader.

The specifications and type of the engine remain a mystery, but the supreme leader was so satisfied with the test that he gave lead developers and scientists a hug and a photo session, and emphasized that the “world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries.”
Pyongyang claimed that the engine was created solely for space exploration and satellite launches and did not mention any of the usual militaristic rhetoric, which usually accompanies such tests.

The new tests comes amid heightened tensions in the Korean Peninsula. Denouncing annual US-led drills with Seoul last week, North Korea launched four missiles in a simulated attack on US facilities in the region, and vowed “merciless ultra-precision strikes from ground, air, sea and underwater” if the allies violate its “sovereignty and dignity even a bit.”

US President Donald Trump criticized N. Korea for “behaving very badly,” while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US “did not rule out” nuclearizing Japan and South Korea amidst the growing threat.
Last week, the US military also began the deployment of its THAAD anti-missile system in S. Korea, despite Russia and China objecting to the move as being “counter-productive.”
Beijing said THAAD's deployment was harming the “regional strategic balance,” since it might damage China's nuclear deterrent capabilities and potentially fuel US first-strike ideas. Moscow said Washington was “instigating an arms race in the subregion.”

 
We do not oppose South Korean taking necessary measures to protect its security, but these measures cannot be based upon harming the security interests of South Korea's friendly neighbor, China,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Friday, as quoted by Reuters.
Washington and Seoul however continue to maintain that the deployment of THAAD is a “defensive” measure against Pyongyang, and countries “other than North Korea” have nothing to worry about, according to US Defense Secretary James Mattis.

#752473 WikiLeaks says just 1% of Vault7 covert documents released so far

Posted by DFighter on 08 March 2017 - 06:39 AM

58c0134ec3618873548b45fa.jpg

WikiLeaks’ data dump on Tuesday accounted for less than one percent of ‘Vault 7’,
A collection of leaked CIA documents which revealed the extent of its hacking capabilities, the whistleblowing organization has claimed on Twitter.

‘Year Zero’, comprising 8,761 documents and files, was released unexpectedly by WikiLeaks.
The organization had initially announced that it was part of a larger series, known as ‘Vault 7.’
However, it did not give further information on when more leaks would occur or on how many series would comprise ‘Vault 7’.
he leaks have revealed the CIA’s covert hacking targets, with smart TVs infiltrated for the purpose of collecting audio, even when the device is powered off.
The Google Android Operating System, used in 85 percent of the world’s smartphones, was also exposed as having severe vulnerabilities, allowing the CIA to “weaponize” the devices.
The CIA would not confirm the authenticity of the leak. “We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence documents.” Jonathan Liu, a spokesman for the CIA, is cited as saying in The Washington Post.
WikiLeaks claims the leak originated from within the CIA before being “lost” and circulated amongst “former U.S. government hackers and contractors.” From there the classified information was passed to WikiLeaks.
End-to-end encryption used by applications such as WhatsApp was revealed to be futile against the CIA’s hacking techniques, dubbed ‘zero days’, which were capable of accessing messages before encryption was applied

#752326 House Republicans unveil Obamacare replacement plan

Posted by DFighter on 07 March 2017 - 07:53 AM

_94963666_gettyimages-647159026.jpg
 

US House Republicans have unveiled a long-awaited plan to replace the signature health care law of former US President Barack Obama.


The proposed legislation would repeal penalties for those who do not buy health insurance.
It would also replace income-based subsidies to help with the cost of premiums with age-based tax credits.
Democrats immediately criticised the plan, saying it would drive up the costs of health care.
House committees plan to begin voting on the 123-page legislation on Wednesday.
The Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, helped 20m previously uninsured Americans get health insurance.
However, increases in insurance premiums - which were also a problem before the health law - have irked many Americans.

The plan from Republicans in the US House of Representatives would reduce the role of the federal government in helping Americans afford healthcare.

"Today marks an important step toward restoring health care choices and affordability back to the American people," the White House said in a statement.
President Donald Trump looked forward to working with Congress to repeal and replace the law, it said.
The president has described Obamacare, which was passed in 2010 and is seen as Mr Obama's signature domestic policy achievement, as "a disaster"

The Republican Party has majorities in both chambers of Congress but divisions remain on the details of what should replace the Affordable Care Act, which is popular in many states, including some governed by Republicans.
The plan is expected to cover fewer people than those who gained insurance under Mr Obama.
A group of four Republican senators have already said that a draft of the legislation they reviewed did not adequately protect low-income people who received Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
They are Rob Portman of Ohio, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Meanwhile, three conservative Republicans in the chamber have suggested the House plan does not go far enough in abolishing Obamacare.
They are Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas.
The chamber's leadership needs the support of at least two of those Republicans if they are to succeed in dismantling Obamacare.
The proposal unveiled on Monday would preserve some popular elements of the existing law, including allowing young people to remain on their parents' insurance plans until the age of 26.
Insurers would also remain banned from denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions.
'Obamacare-lite'

While penalties for those who don't buy health insurance would be scrapped, those who let their coverage lapse could see their premiums raised by 30% by insurers.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said the bill would "drive down costs, encourage competition, and give every American access to quality, affordable health insurance".
He said no one would have "the rug pulled out from under them".
But some conservatives have already voiced concerns that the bill does not go far enough.
"It still looks like Obamacare-lite to me," said Senator Rand Paul.
On the Democratic side, US Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the plan would "force Americans to pay more, all so insurance companies can pad their bottom line".
He also criticised measures that would block for one year federal funding to Planned Parenthood, an organisation opposed by many in the Republican Party because it provides abortions.

#752147 Israel decriminalizes marijuana use for non-repeat offenders

Posted by DFighter on 06 March 2017 - 02:51 AM

Israel’s Cabinet has approved new measures on the path to decriminalize the use of marijuana in the country. Anyone caught using the drug for the first time will only be fined roughly $270 instead of facing criminal charges.
The new policy formulated by the Public Security and Justice ministries shifts focus from criminal prosecution of smokers to administrative fines and educational campaigns.
The policy abandons criminal proceedings against would be first-time offenders who are caught smoking weed in public. Instead, they will be fined 1,000 shekels ($271). The fine will double if the offender is caught the second time.
 
The third offense will lead to a probation, while only the fourth offense will result in criminal charges being pressed against the individual.
Revenue generated from fines will go to create anti-drug education programs and pay for drug treatment.
Selling and growing cannabis would still remain a criminal offense. In addition, the new law would not apply to about 25,000 Israelis who have a license to use the drug for medicinal purposes.
If a minor is caught using marijuana, he would be criminally investigated only if he refuses to take part in a treatment program, noted Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, who led the reform, Haaretz reports.
 
While the new measure must still be ratified by parliament, Israeli politicians have welcomed the move.
“The government’s approval is an important step on the way to implement the new policy, which will emphasize public information and treatment instead of criminal enforcement,” Erdan said according to Haaretz.
“This is an important step, but not the end of the road. It sends a message that a million of Israelis who consume marijuana aren’t criminals. We will carry on following the details in the committee and ensure that the change is implemented,” said MK Tamar Zandberg, the chairwoman of the Knesset Special Committee on Drug and Alcohol Abuse.

 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seemed less optimistic about the move to decriminalize smoking weed but hoped the focus on educating people about its possible harmful effects will reduce the number of cannabis users.
“On the one hand, we are opening ourselves up to the future. On the other hand, we understand the dangers and will try to balance the two,” Netanyahu told his cabinet in broadcast remarks, according to Reuters.
 
Erdan meanwhile stressed that the country's marijuana arrest policy was reexamined in light of legalization efforts around the world.
“Israel cannot shut its eyes to the changes being made across the world in respect to marijuana consumption and its effects,” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said in a statement.
Israeli police figures available for 2015 showed only 188 arrests for possession of cannabis, according to Reuters, which is a 56 percent drop since 2010.
