Submission + - Regional Concentrations of Scientists and Engineers in the United States 1

DERoss writes: The National Science Foundation has publish a research paper with the subject title, which may be found at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/infbrief/nsf13330/. The lead paragraph contains the sentence "The three most populous states—California, Texas, and New York—together accounted for more than one-fourth of all S&E employment in the United States."

According to the 2010 census, however, those three states also contain more than one-fourth (26.5%) percent of the U.S. population. In other words, there is NO concentration beyond how the general population is concentrated.

Submission + - Question: How do I obtain enforcement of my copyr (rossde.com)

DERoss writes: I have a personal Web site with many, many pages. One of the pages — one of my very first from before 1999 — describes the community in which I live. As with most of my Web pages, this one carries a copyright notice.

Often, my community page is plagiarized by real estate agents and brokers without my permission. Can I get the U.S. government to enforce my copyright. Or is enforcement limited to the MPAA , RIAA, and their allies.

Submission + - PGP Vulnerability -- No Fix for Freeware Version (cert.org)

DERoss writes: PGP Desktop — used to encrypt or digitally sign E-mail and files — contains a serious vulnerability in current versions 10.0.3 and 10.1. This vulnerability allows a signed message or file (or sometimes a signed and encrypted message or file) to be altered without invalidating the signature. This makes it impossible to use a digital signature to verify the integrity of a message or file. While many individual, non-commercial users of PGP Desktop use the freeware trial version, Symantec will not provide a fix except for the purchased version. For non-technical details, see [http://www.rossde.com/PGP/pgp_weak.html#inject].
