    President Donald Trump is scheduled to publicize his administration’s national security doctrine on Monday, two years after then-President Barack Obama released his own strategy document, which emphasized global warming as a major threat to global security. The new doctrine, laid out in a 70-page document, includes significant departures from past American policy on the Middle East, including the Israeli-Arab conflict and the influence that conflict has had on Middle East stability. According to the Associated Press, which obtained a draft of the new national security document, the president is expected to emphasize that Israel is not the cause of the...
  • The Password Pandemic II: How to Create Awesome Passphrases

    Stronghold Cyber Security ^ | December 5, 2017 | Jason McNew
    In part I of “The Password Pandemic”, I advised (in the same vein as NIST SP 800-63b) the use of passphrases, instead of passwords. This is because hackers have built massive databases of stolen passwords and tables full of password “hashes” (known as rainbow tables.) Also, those of us in the InfoSec community know that when we force the use of complicated passwords on people, they will write them on Post IT notes under their keyboards. I have even seen this happen in very high security environments — this is bad.
  • Seeing both sides of a problem could be seen as a no-no.

    President Donald Trump is in trouble again with his Moral Superiors. His problem, of course, is that he cannot throttle his B.S. Detector. Trump it seems at some point in life acquired a B.S. Detector that has usually served him well. It certainly served him well during his long years in business and during his brief time in politics. Now, however, it is problematic. The Detector sounds an alarm when it perceives B.S., and during the Charlottesville disruptions it went wild. Every time the Mainstream Media or a political figure (usually a Democrat) began vituperating against only one side in...

    Space does plenty of whacky things to astronauts' bodies, like deteriorating their muscle mass and making them on average 5 centimeters (2 inches) taller. But scientists have uncovered another, more subtle side effect — space is totally ruining astronauts' perfect eyesight. In fact, 80 percent of astronauts who come back from long-duration missions display symptoms of a mysterious eye condition that causes nearsightedness, Shayla Love reports for The Washington Post. While it's a myth that all astronauts have to have natural 20/20 vision (they're allowed to have corrective laser surgery) by the time they launch, their vision does need to...

    Let’s keep it real, shall we? I don’t like everything about parenting. I hated my daughter’s croup. Why do I need to like everything about Down syndrome? 10. I hate it when he uses his low muscle tone to his advantage in a tantrum. It’s not a fair fight. I hear parents say “All kids do it, it’s age appropriate at 2 years old!” Yeah? Well, say that to me when I’m draping a 13 kilogram liquid toddler over my arm like a highly disagreeable fish playing dead. Then still powering on with my grocery shop. 9. I hate it...

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says Iraq’s government must make a sincere effort to address sectarian differences, or else U.S. military help won’t succeed in curbing the insurgency there. He says, quote, “We can’t do it for them.” Obama says the U.S. won’t send troops back into Iraq. But he says he’s asked his national security team to prepare a range of other options. He says he’ll review those options in the coming days. Obama says the risk posed by terrorists in Iraq could eventually pose a threat to U.S. interests, too. A fast-moving insurgency in Iraq has taken over

  • Dayton: Tax Cuts Caused Minn. Economic Problems

    Gov. Mark Dayton says in his State of the State speech that past state income tax cuts are partly to blame for chronic budget problems in Minnesota and that political leaders cannot afford to keep delaying difficult tax and spending decisions. Dayton is delivering the annual speech Wednesday night in the state House chamber. He says in advance excerpts provided by his office that income tax cuts in the late '90s were followed by a decade where Minnesota's economy fared worse than the nation as a whole and most other states. The speech is largely a pitch for Dayton's proposal...

    Any fellow FReepers having difficulties with the new iphone 5, or specifically, the ios6? I love the phone but here's my nightmare: Received phone last Wednesday. Activated it. Camera was inop, but everything else worked fine, including wifi access. Brought phone to Apple this Saturday, received a new replacement. Activated it at home. Everything works great EXCEPT I cannot connect to my wifi. Did an internet search and there are quite a few people with the same issue. Anyone else run into this?

    (CBS News) A new valve to regulate oxygen flow to a pilot's inflatable vest could be the fix to help F-22 pilots overcome their feeling of disorientation due to lack of oxygen (or hypoxia), while flying, CBS News has learned. Correspondent David Martin reported Tuesday that Gen. Charles Lyon, the head of the task force investigating the cause of hypoxia in F-22 pilots, gave a briefing today which restated the Air Force's belief that they have identified the problem that was causing pilots to lose oxygen. Lyon believes the Air Force has found the cause -- an inflatable vest which...

    Washington - National Review Online editor Jonah Goldberg spoke Wednesday about how “violence solves all sorts of problems” and argued against the critique that Jesus was a pacifist. (Snip) “A lot of people think we get this idea [that violence solves nothing] from Jesus,” Goldberg said. “This is one of the things they love: ‘You hypocritical conservatives, you think violence is a solution — you call yourself a Christian, you’re not.’ Jesus told his followers to carry swords. Unless he had some sort of theory that fell out of in the Apocrypha that these were just great big kabob skewers,

    U.S. Department of Energy official testifies to committee: Energy stimulus program plagued by problems The Department of Energy’s inspector general said Wednesday that the 2009 stimulus program for green energy was so at odds with the realities on the ground that it was akin to “attaching a lawn mower to a fire hydrant.” Inspector General Gregory Friedman, testifying to the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s panel on stimulus oversight, outlined a range of problems, from a flood of $35 billion in stimulus money that overwhelmed the department’s $27 billion annual budget to weatherization programs of such shoddy quality that more...

    A former Food and Drug Administration official who helped get the vision correction surgery LASIK approved back in the 1990s but later spoke out against the procedure is taking his concerns directly to current regulators at the FDA. Morris Waxler, who is now an independent regulatory consultant, filed a citizens petition today urging the agency to take steps to stop what he calls "the epidemic of permanent vision problems" caused by LASIK. Waxler's petition implores the FDA to take actions to crack down on the procedure, including issuing a public health advisory that warns the public about the dangers associated...
