    SA Administrator Peter Neffenger said that two of 73 aviation employees with access to secured areas of U.S. airports who were also on the TIDE (Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment) system – the government’s database of “information on international terrorist identities” – had their credentials removed, while the other 71 were “scrubbed” from the database on the advice of the FBI. A DHS Office of Inspector General report titled, “TSA Can Improve Aviation Worker Vetting,” and dated June 4, 2015 said, “our testing showed that TSA did not identify 73 individuals with terrorism-related category codes because TSA is not authorized to...

    The Virginian Pilot (slogan: “Dear reader, we hate your f***ing guts”) helped sell Norfolk on the “Tide.” The Tide (slogan: “if we have not run into you yet, give us time, we will.”) is a light rail system that just captured the title of “by far the biggest loser per passenger in the country.” Determined not to let go of its record of supporting every money losing public project it can find, the Virginian Pilot (favorite prediction: Norfolk will be under water by next Tuesday because of Global Warming) is doubling down on stupid. Admitting that the Tide has captured...

    The Bay Area is expected to have some of the highest tides of the year beginning Sunday, forecasters said. King tides, which usually last up to three days three times in the winter, bring unusually high tides along the coast and bay front, said Drew Peterson, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Monterey. The agency has already issued a coastal flood advisory to take effect Sunday morning, he said. Low-lying areas along the bay and along the coast, such as walkways, piers and parking lots along the Embarcadero, can expect to see some seawater, he said. Those who...

    It’s getting difficult to keep up with the Boston Marathon bombing case without a scorecard.  A week ago, the media reported that the FBI received one warning about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but found nothing of concern at the time in 2011.  Next we discovered that Russia issued multiple warnings to the US about Tamerlan, and this morning that the Joint Terrorism Task Force got alerted to the return of a “suspected militant” on his return — a warning that went nowhere.  Now CNN also reports that Tamerlan wasn’t the only Tsarnaev on Russia’s radar, and that the CIA had added his...

    Tide laundry detergent is meant to be used for household cleaning purposes, but thieves are turning it into something dirty. Authorities are reporting a spike in thefts of Tide, and in some cities they are setting up task forces where the detergent is sold to track the number of bottles in stores. Police believe thieves are using the soap on the black market, which retails for $10-$20, to buy drugs. On the black market, Tide is often referred to as "liquid gold" and can go for $5-$10 per bottle. Last year, in St. Paul, Minnesota, a man is alleged to...

    Law enforcement officials across the country are puzzled over a crime wave targeting an unlikely item: Tide laundry detergent. Theft of Tide detergent has become so rampant that authorities from New York to Oregon are keeping tabs on the soap spree, and some cities are setting up special task forces to stop it. And retailers like CVS are taking special security precautions to lock down the liquid. One Tide taker in West St. Paul, Minn., made off with $25,000 in the product over 15 months before he was busted last year. “That was unique that he stole so much soap,”...

    There is a problem with the Bowl Championship Series, but it’s not the one you probably think. College football doesn’t need a playoff. A traditional playoff system – an eight-team or even four-team bracket – brings nothing in the way of advantages over the current system and probably would make things considerably worse. Don’t tell me the traditional architecture for playoffs is the only – or even most – accurate way to determine a champion. The St. Louis Cardinals just won the World Series under that system despite having fewer wins in the regular season than any other team that...

Across the South, volunteers have been pitching in as the death toll from Wednesday's storms keeps rising. At least 340 people were killed across seven states, including at least 249 in Alabama, as the storm system spawned tornadoes through several states. It was the largest death toll since March 18, 1925, when 747 people were killed in storms that raged through Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. In Pratt City,...

    I used to get some really incredible deals via couponing on a variety of laundry detergents but my wife wasn't satisfied. She wanted only one brand: Tide. It seems that people from Venezuela have developed VERY strong loyalties to various product brands. For example, she also disdained any toothpaste except for Colgate (or "Col-gah-teh" as she pronounces it) although I have finally gotten her to become a fan of Crest as well. This wasn't a problem because I have been able to score a lot of FREE tubes of both Colgate and Crest via creative couponing. However, Tide had...

    Climate change is expected to cause sea levels to rise -- at least in some parts of the world. Elsewhere, the level of the ocean will actually fall. Scientists are trying to get a better picture of the complex phenomenon, which also depends on a host of natural factors. When presented as a globe, the Earth looks as round and smooth as a billiard ball. To anyone standing on a beach, the ocean looks as flat as a pancake. But perception is deceptive. "In reality, the water in the oceans wobbles all over the place," says oceanographer Detlef Stammer. He...

The Crimson Tide, ranked No. 2, broke open a tight SEC title game in Atlanta with a solid second half, defeating the Gators 32-13 on Saturday. The Crimson Tide punched their ticket to the national title game with a magnificent performance against Florida, the defending national champion. They pounded out just shy of 500 yards of offense and forced Gators QB Tim Tebow into uncharacteristic mistakes.

A close ally of Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez sits barricaded in the Brazilian Embassy in Tegucigalpa, having been lawfully convicted of attempting a slow-motion coup in Honduras. Paid bands of his rent-a-thugs are terrorizing and looting the city. And the Obama administration is effectively cheering them on. It all began this summer, when Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was deposed and deported following his attempt to subvert the Honduran Constitution.

    Tide of opinion turns against Venice dam By Hilary Clarke in Venice (Filed: 29/01/2006) A multi-billion pound project to stop Venice disappearing under water is itself in danger of sinking under the weight of opposition from the city's mayor and the European Commission. Brussels is concerned about the impact the £2.9 billion Moses dam project could have on the environment, while Venice's own council believes the cash would be better spent on maintaining buildings. Water levels in Venice have risen by 32in since the 18th century, when Canaletto painted the lagoon city. Its tourist centre, St Mark's Square, floods more...

    OCEANS levels are rising faster than previously thought, research has found. Scientists had previously wondered why the sea level rise did not seem to be accelerating, as their computer models predicted under climate change. But the Greenhouse 2005 conference will be told today that an acceleration has been detected by looking at a longer record of sea levels, between 1870 and 2004. The study, by the CSIRO's John Church and Neil White, is the first time researchers have reconstructed the sea level rise for such a long period. Over that time, the sea has risen almost 20 centimetres, with the...

Now, as much of the world worries how to stop sea levels from rising,...

Michael Capuano blasted the state agency in charge, calling the decision ``overkill.'' ``To close down a pool on what is on average the hottest week of the year is nuts,'' Capuano said. ``These kids have no other place to go.

Although the French government remains convinced that the war is unjustified and probably illegal, M. Raffarin has been alarmed by signs of growing anti-American and anti-Semitic feeling at anti-war demonstrations in Paris and other French cities. He has also been disturbed by an opinion poll earlier this week that suggested one in...
