Is it hovering over N Korea?
CHAMP will destroy or permanently damage electronics, differentiating itself from jammers, and making it extremely dangerous in the wrong hands.

Hey, $/^t for brains. The police serve the community and should be representative of the community. Then they would be more sensitive to the community.

I am American.  While I do live in Canada, I have always remained proudly American, but my heart hurts right now watching what is going on in the US right now.  

I have always lived my life in a respectful manner.  I treat everyone the same, regardless of color, gender, sexual orientation or political views.  I have an expectation of others to treat me the same way.

What am I supposed to tell my sons?  Beware, because you may be accosted because of the color of your skin no matter what? 

I fear that armed conflict within the US is coming.  When you hold down a people for so long there will be only one reaction left.

A breath of fresh air.
 
They represent the rich and the powerful who don't want their taxes raised, who don't want to see any change.

quote:
Tuesday night, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke at the Re/code conference, a confab of media and tech influencers. During a question and answer session, a voter asked why politicians aren't building infrastructure or implementing other policy that respects the will of the people. Warren explained that the government in Washington just isn't responsive to the people who elected it – and won't be unless their constituents revolt and demand accountability:

QUESTION: How am I or the fifty percent of people who can vote or don't supposed to actually believe any politician that says we are going to rebuild this country, energy infrastructure, internet infrastructure, education all these things matter. I believe that. And with interest rates this low, it makes sense for us to issue paper on 30 or 100 year notes to rebuild America. Why aren't we doing that?

WARREN: It's exactly the right question. We are not doing it because the people in Washington, too many of the people in Washington, do not represent the folks who elected them. They represent the rich and the powerful who don't want their taxes raised, who don't want to see any change. Who are perfectly happy with things where they are, indeed they're doing great with things where they are. And they stay in the ear of enough of the folks in Washington that it has made it impossible to get any kind of change. The only way we get change is when enough people in this country say I'm mad as hell and I'm fed up and I'm not going to do this anymore. You are not going to go back and represent me in Washington, DC. if you are not willing to pass a meaningful infrastructure bill. If you are not willing to refinance student loan interest rates and stop dragging in billions of dollars in profits off the backs of kids who otherwise can't afford to go to college. If you don't say you're going to fund the NIH and NISF because that is our future. We have to make these issues salient and not just wonky. When you hear us talk about this and you say this is like the wonkiest conference ever, can you imagine saying that at a tech conference, when you say this is the wonkiest conference we've ever had, no! These have to be the things that you wake up people all over America and say what matters? Whether or not  you're going to have a job, whether or not you're going to have a retirement, whether or not your kids are going to have any chance to build a future for them. It's gotta be about these core issues. And we gotta talk about 'em, talk about 'em enough until there's some real change in this country that's all I know to do.

Nevada Republicans voted to approve several gun-focused bills on Wednesday. Assembly members voted on primarily party lines to approve AB121, which would bar schools from punishing students who play with toy firearms; AB100, which requires the attorney general to take legal action if he or she determines a presidential executive order is infringing on Second Amendment rights; and AB139, which allows out-of-state concealed firearm permits to be recognized in Nevada.
Nevada Republicans voted to approve several gun-focused bills on Wednesday despite Democratic worries about unintended consequences.

Things that make you go, Hmmm?
1. “Black-on-Black Crime” Statistics “Black-on-Black crime” was a term coined in the ’80s to describe the rise in gang violence in urban areas in the United States. Since then, the phrase has been used to perpetuate the idea that there is an epidemic of in-group violence in the African-American community that is not seen in …

Well that's odd timing.
The Ottawa Senators have fired head coach Paul MacLean, a former NHL coach of the year who was in his fourth season with the club.
