+ - Sweetheart deal for billionaire could cut off GPS->

Submitted by a2gsg
a2gsg (43468) writes "... laboratory test results from the world’s top manufacturer of
navigational gizmos, Garmin Ltd. The company’s engineers found that
popular consumer GPS units started experiencing dropouts when
approaching within 3.6 miles of a LightSquared transmitter. A commonly
used aircraft navigation unit completely lost its fix within 5.6
miles. “It’s mind-boggling to us,” Garmin spokesman Ted Gartner told
The Washington Times. “If it’s implemented as is, we’ve presented a
pretty good case with that test that there will be some disruptions.” ..."

i also use the http://hcpnet.free.fr/milter-greylist greylisting package as well as spamassassin with some custom score tweaks available at http://iconia.com/user_prefs. all this keeps my mailbox as well as other users at a college radio station and a commercial asp with lots of public email addresses on their respective websites relatively spam free.

+ - New presidential directive gives dictatorial power->

Submitted by
the terminal of geoff goodfellow
the terminal of geoff goodfellow writes "that GlobalResearch.ca reports that by executive order, the president of the United States signed into law directive NSPD 51 & HSPD 20, that in the event of a "catastrophic event" (that could be located anywhere in the world), the president can become what is best described as "a dictator":

"The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government."
This directive, completely unnoticed by the media, and given no scrutiny by Congress, literally gives the White House unprecedented dictatorial power over the government and the country, bypassing the US Congress and obliterating the separation of powers. The directive also placed the Secretary of Homeland Security in charge of domestic "security". Would the events of say Sept. 11th, 2001 or hurricane Katrina be "catastrophic events"? A critical analysis on the directive can be found here."

Submitted by
the terminal of geoff goodfellow
the terminal of geoff goodfellow writes "The Associated Press has a story out today on the three-century-old manuscripts by Isaac Newton calculating the exact date of the apocalypse, detailing the precise dimensions of the ancient temple in Jerusalem and interpreting passages of the Bible. The Newton Papers just went on display for the first time in public at the Jewish National and University Library in Israel and lay bare the little-known religious intensity of a man many consider history's greatest scientist. The fully digitized manuscripts and printed works can be viewed here, including the Apocalypse, that reached the conclusion that the world would end no earlier than 2060."
