Neither the NSA reform bill nor the two-month surveillance reauthorization bill passed tonight. If the Senate stalemate continues, the mass surveillance of everyone’s phone records will simply expire on June 1.
Tonight, the US Senate failed to move ahead with the USA Freedom Act, an NSA reform bill that would address phone record surveillance and FISA Court transparency and fairness. It also was unable to muster votes for a temporary reauthorization of Section 215 of the Patriot Act, the section of law used to justify the mass phone records surveillance program. That’s good news: if the Senate stalemate continues, the mass surveillance of everyone’s pho...

Save Science Funding. Tell the US Senate not to slash Earth & Space science funding in 2016

The U.S. House has set its federal science funding levels for NOAA, NASA, and NSF, and some critical Earth and space science programs will be negatively impacted if the budget numbers do not change.

No funding for NOAA's next generation of polar-orbiting wetaher satellites.
A 5% budget cut to NOAA overall.
Cuts to NASA Earth science program.
Funding for NSF at 4% below the President's request for FY2016.

You have another chance to show how critical Earth and space science research is.

Please follow the link below to send a message to your legislators and let them know how important funding Earth & Space science is to you.

NSA planned to use the Play Store to implant spyware on target smartphones

When it can’t legally force its way onto private systems, the NSA does its best to sneak in – case in point, a pilot program called Irritant Horn, that saw the NSA and its allies attempt to hijack the connection between a target smartphone and the Play Store (then called Android Market).

By +Bogdan Petrovan 
thelibertarianrepublic It’s no (longer a) secret that the NSA has planted its feelers deep into the very foundation of the Internet. Allegedly, the US spy agency has even obtained access to Google’s data centers, though it’s not clear whether this happened with Google’s cooperation. When it can’t legally force its way onto private systems, the NSA does its best to sneak in – case in point, a pilot program called Irritant Horn, that saw the...

The dreadful beauty of Medusa
From Phys.org: Astronomers using ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile have captured the most detailed image ever taken of the Medusa Nebula. As the star at the heart of this nebula made its transition into retirement, it shed its outer layers into space, forming this colorful cloud. The image foreshadows the final fate of the Sun, which will eventually also become an object of this kind. Read more: http://phys.org/news/2015-05-dreadful-beauty-medusa.html

WISE spacecraft discovers most luminous galaxy in universe

A remote galaxy shining with the light of more than 300 trillion suns has been discovered using data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The galaxy is the most luminous galaxy found to date and belongs to a new class of objects recently discovered by WISE—extremely luminous infrared galaxies, or ELIRGs.

The brilliant galaxy may have a behemoth black hole at its belly. Immense black holes are common at the cores of galaxies, but finding one this big so "far back" in the cosmos is rare.

This place is a turd in a tuxedo. They clearly spent a lot of money on the lobby and the restaurant/pool area, but the rooms are run-down 2-star quality rooms. The lobby staff were snooty and rude. Out of several parties in our group staying here, NONE of the keys would work (either in the room door or the outside gate) 19/20 times. Again, this is a run-down, old, shithole 1 or 2 star motel, dressed up as a 3-star resort. Oh, and also the food at the restaurant is incredibly overpriced and they can't make a cocktail to save their lives.

We took our son there for a trial day, to see if we/he liked it there. It was OK, except for one really major thing: the teacher/caregiver was heard telling one of the children "god gave you two hands". As an atheist who doesn't want his children to be indoctrinated with fairy tales (spoken as if they're real), this was an instant deal breaker for me.

DO NOT HIRE this lawyer. She has a track record of talking her own clients into settling for much less than they could otherwise easily get.

I wish the other reviewers would specify WHICH lawyer they got. We had Carol Soderquist and she was great, a bulldog. She fought hard and didn't let the opposing lawyer get away with any BS.
