Physics Forum At Fermilab Bans Powerpoint

BP Finds Way To Bypass US Crude Export Ban
This is the exact reason for the Keystone XL pipeline terminating at Houston. It was never for supplying the US domestic market; it is solely for the export of crude (or meta-crude) on the more lucrative international market, resulting in not one penny lower gas prices for consumers.

Bugatti 100P Rebuilt: The Plane That Could've Turned the Battle of Britain

Schneier: Break Up the NSA
The author of this article really doesn't know what he's talking about.
Pardon me, but I'm going to go with the man who is well-known for his integrity, intellect, guts to write under his own real name, Johnny.
Even if you did actually serve, I'm still not convinced to defer to you over the right-honorable Mister Schneier.

EFF Reports GHCQ and NSA Keeping Tabs On Wikileaks Visitors and Reporters
The Congress critters, the Senators, the White House
...all know their secrets have been Hoovered up by the NSA during a decade of mining. Why else do you think there has been such a muted response to Mr. Snowden's discoveries? J Edgar was never really challenged either; most timidly waited until he died.
