The US DoD recently released (via FOIA request) footage of an F18 SuperHornet tracking a UFO:
https://coi.tothestarsacademy.com/2015-go-fast-footage/

Kind of surprising this type of information doesn't create a maelstrom of headlines.

The tracking system used to capture the footage was Raytheon's Advanced Targeting Forward Looking Infrared pod: https://www.raytheon.com/capabilities/products/atflir

Interestingly, this isn't the first time UFO footage has been released:

What are the tariffs president is pressing on and how would it affect our economy in US?  I am afraid there will be a tariff for all the goods imported from asia and that would definitely hurt our economy.   Sorry this maybe belongs to the Lounge for the discussion.  Not sure.  If so, please move it in there.

Thoughts?

Experts Exchange is based in San Luis Obispo, otherwise known to locals as 'SLO'.  The city of SLO lost a valued member of its community a few months ago.  
Frank [Stone] built a reputation for “diligence and accuracy as a premier source of public safety news and reporting up and down the Central Coast"

Recently, the city's assemblyman voted for a bill to name a portion of its highway to this man.  On to the California State Senate Rules Committee.  I hope it passes there as well.

UpGuard's cyber risk analyst, Chris Vickery, discovers 198 million US voting records in an Amazon S3 bucket freely available online. One particular spreadsheet also calculates the voters probabilities for situations such as "how likely you are to have voted for a certain presidential candidate".  This breach is another reminder of how important personal data security is.

Having this data in a public cloud provider is wrong to start with no?

Whoa, whoa, whoa... Apparently in West Virginia, being a State Senator is a part time job. Which means that a State Senator likely has to work a normal, private-sector job. A job for a company that might have a strong opinion about a particular vote. A company that then might fire the State Senator after they voted in a way the company didn't like... Uh... Conflict of interest much?

What do you think? Is this system broken? How would you fix this?

There's very few employers that would allow someone to be gone for six months of the year and only work half time the other six months, which is the normal time demands of a Minnesota state legislator, so I’m having a hard time imagining what these part-time legislators would do for a career.     When I was in the Army National Guard employers didn't even care for me being gone one weekend a month and two weeks a year.

At those salaries I'm surprised we don't hear more stories about bribery, corruption, and employer conflict of interest.

As a side note when Jesse 'The Body' Ventura was governor he frequently refereed pro wrestling matches.  No conflict of interest there as I don't think it would affect the state if 'Bruno the Midnight Stalker' or 'The Bushwackers' won.   I still think it would have been great if he hired Axe and Slash as his state budget directors.

I've mostly assumed that most (or all?) states had 'part time' legislators. It's both expensive and very disruptive to live in a legislative district, yet spend perhaps half of the year in the capital. 'Expensive' isn't truly meaningful, since per diem amounts are usually (always?) supplied. Still, splittling life between two places has costs.

Any regular "job" almost necessarily must be given up. Any business might be at least partly abandoned for a couple years or more -- even when not in session back "home", legislative attention must be given to citizens.

In the OP case, I'd be very suspicious of someone at or near a 'C'-level executive position who kept that position upon election. There'd be practically no way to give necessary attention to corporate matters and also to legislative responsibilities and obligations unless the corporate board had its own agenda for having its personal legislator..

For those of you who don't believe in climate change and think it's a hoax, can you explain your reasoning? I truly am interested in hearing points of views from the other side (I believe in it based upon all of the independent studies I've come across). I'm not trying to start a flame war here, I am legitimately interested in hearing peoples opinions.

Let's try to keep this civil and discuss in an orderly manner :)

In light of President Trump being investigated, and given the current political climate, I wanted to share my personal viewpoint on these subjects.

I have no problem seeing a President get impeached for actively trying to impede an investigation against him (if the facts show this is the case). That being said, any truthful observer of 2017 American Politics must conclude that a kind of witch hunt's been going on since President Trump first took office. That’s not to say that President Trump hasn’t made some blunders or that the American people should ever turn a blind eye, but I believe serious damage is being done to our form of government. That's the real unfortunate thing here, not that a President might be impeached, but that the following message to the people is loud and clear: "If you don't like a President. It’s okay to withhold all support and pounce at the optimal moment."

Our democracy will be the weaker for having chosen this approach to “checking” President Trump. We’ve chosen to pick up the same insidious tool labeled “McCarthyism” by some and “Witch Hunt” by others. And now that this tool is fresh in-hand, it will be far easier for the next disgruntled group of Americans to run at the next President with it. Perhaps, successfully.

If precedence is set with this President, the trend will start. By precedence, I don’t mean impeachment (that’s happened before) but the whole-sale rejection of the legitimacy of a President followed by unrelenting…

the whole-sale rejection of the legitimacy of a President followed by unrelenting fault-finding, culminating in an impeachment, that’s new.

This isn't new; unrelenting fault-finding is the very foundation of politics.

Fair point Lucas.  However, "He's not my President" is a phrase I used to hear only very rarely in years past even among the most adamant detractors. They'd find fault but still show respect for the office. It feels much different today. I'm in my late 40's so I can only speak to what I've experienced in my lifetime of course.

Ok, so the new law in the process of being passed.  What does it do.  From what I understand, it repeals a law Obama signed in Oct. of last year that's not even in effect till the end of 2017, so nothing really changes right now.  ??  Does this mean I can simply go up to my ISP and ask to buy my neighbors browsing history to see where all they have been going?  Or can I buy a report on an application for work to see if they have any weird browsing history?  It seems the internet is just full of "the other side are a bunch of assholes!".  I just want to know what changes currently and in the near term if the law passes and if it fails.  Thanks
