+ - Richard Stallman to Start Fashion Line->

Submitted by dgatwood
dgatwood (11270) writes ""Walking down the halls of MIT, I’d often see my colleagues dressed rather shabbily, and it was then that I decided to do something about it," said Richard Stallman, 60, of Cambridge, MA. So Stallman, a leader in the Free Software community with decades of software design experience, is ready to turn that experience towards a new target: clothing. He is expected to showcase his new line at FOSSCON 2012."

helix2301 (1105613) writes "NASA will televise the launch and docking of its next mission to the International Space Station (ISS) beginning at 3:30 PM EDT on Thursday, March 28 (1930 UTC). NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, KF5KDR, and Russian cosmonauts Pavel Vinogradov, RV3BS, and Alexander Misurkin are scheduled to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:43 PM EDT (2043 UTC). They will join Canadian Space Agency astronaut Chris Hadfield, VA3OOG/KC5RNJ, NASA astronaut Tom Marshburn, KE5HOC, and Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko — already aboard the ISS — for Expedition 35. It will take Cassidy, Vinogradov and Misurkin only six hours to reach the ISS. NASA will begin its live coverage of the docking at 8:30 PM (0030 UTC on Friday, March 29). The trio will dock at 9:32 PM (0132 UTC), and hatches are scheduled to open between the Soyuz and the ISS at 11:10 PM (0310 UTC)."

China

+ - NASA Tightens Security in Response to Insider Threat-> 1

CowboyRobot writes "NASA has closed down its technical reports database and imposed tighter restrictions on remote access to its computer systems following the arrest of a Chinese contractor on suspicion of intellectual property theft. NASA administrator Charles Bolden outlined those and other security measures in March 20 testimony before a congressional subcommittee. Bolden said he had ordered a review of the access that foreign nationals from designated countries — including China, Iran and North Korea — are given to NASA facilities and a moratorium on providing new access to citizens of those countries. The agency's actions follow the March 16 arrest of Bo Jiang, a Chinese citizen, at Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., as he prepared to leave the United States. The FBI, in its application for an arrest warrant, said it was investigating violations of the Arms Export Control Act."

"Innocence of Muslims" was produced by Islamists.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is Meth-dealer-Egyptian-Coptic-anti-Muslim-activist-fundamentalist-Christian. Then on the other hand, Eiad Salameh appears to be a Muslim-fundamentalist-Palestinian-scam-artist-terrorist.

We're being duped again (and that includes me as well) by the ill-informed Media.

Walid Shoebat has the drop on these guys on his blog.

Joanna Rutkowska blogs that this even circumvents the famed NSA Secured-Edition Linux sandboxing of Xorg.

Details all in here.

Biggest ramification is that this is not a bug, but a Xorg design feature!"

+ - Worst Recession Ever?->

Submitted by Dark Coder
Dark Coder (66759) writes "The Great Depression was extended by 5 years according to various economists due to debilitating Federal policies enacted by FDR. Five recent bills (Auto, Finance, Bank, Health-Care and Teacher Jobs) are touted as being similar to FDR's worsening policies. As a result, we're still sliding into a deeper recession. What does it take to get us out of this doldrums?"
