Trisha Anderson, the principal deputy general counsel for the FBI and head of the bureau’s National Security and Cyber Law Branch, signed off on an application for a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page—before the application went to FBI Director James Comey—despite not having read it, she said.
Anderson, whose division was also assigned the Mid-Year Exam—the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server—was responsible for legal oversight of the FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications process, and provided a final sign-off before FISA applications were sent to the FBI director level. Anderson, who supervised the FBI attorneys involved in FISA applications, characterized her role as being “involved at a supervisory level within the legal chain of command.”

Fishing villages, small boats and children at play dot the landscape along the shallow waterways of Colombia's Magdalena River. But an invasive species left behind by one of the country's most infamous figures is threatening the ecosystem and, possibly, a way of life.
That species? Hippos. The giants, native only to Africa, are now running wild in Colombia, reports CBS News' Manuel Bojorquez.
The end result of Apple's recent push for privacy, will be great for their users. If they do force compliance, long term others will need to follow or be ignored by consumers. Seems like Apple has a powerful financial incentive to protect their users' privacy.
To turn polypropylene into fuel, the researchers used supercritical water, a phase of water that demonstrates characteristics of both a liquid and a gas depending on the pressure and temperature conditions. Purdue chemist Linda Wang and her colleagues heated water to between 716 and 932 degrees Fahrenheit at pressures approximately 2300 times greater than the atmospheric pressure at sea level.
When purified polypropylene waste was added to the supercritical water, it was converted into oil within in a few hours, depending on the temperature. At around 850 degrees Fahrenheit, the conversion time was lowered to under an hour.
The byproducts of this process include gasoline and diesel-like oils.
The pain felt by Cuomo was palpable. “SALT was an economic civil war,” he said, referring to Trump’s tax plan by employing hyperbole. “It literally restructured the economy.” Cuomo claimed this was an intentional attack on Democratic states, made to benefit the Republican states.
What he was referring to was the component in the Trump tax cut that limited the deductions that could be taken for state and local income taxes. The tax code made no provision for particular states, just in reference to those with existing income taxes. Of course, lost on Cuomo is that most states with an income tax — and even additional municipal IT — trend to the Blue. His confiscatory taxes are not the cause, it’s that damned Trump and his lack of deductions!
Capping the SALT deductions was one of the best things Trump did. Let's face it, the SALT deductions were allowing blue states to get subsidized by states with lower income taxes. Plain and simple. Now that the chickens are coming home to roost, the Democrats are rethinking their tax and spend strategy. Good.
Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based lawyer, told LifeSite yesterday that Phillips’ “lies and false accusations” against Sandmann and the other Covington students are “well documented.”
He also said they would be filing the first round of lawsuits "within two weeks." Todd V. McMurtry, a Ft. Mitchell, Ky attorney, is also representing Sandmann and his parents. Doug Schloemer, a Ft. Mitchell, Ky attorney, represents a number of other students and Robert Barnes, a California attorney, is also representing families and students of Covington High School.
David Edward De Vere, 53, a former Equal Employment Specialist at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, pleaded guilty on Sept. 27, 2018 before U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady of the Eastern District of Virginia to production of child pornography.
According to admissions made in connection with his guilty plea, De Vere met and began exchanging sexually explicit messages online with a 16-year-old minor living in Colorado in March 2017. During the course of these communications, De Vere induced the minor to take and send him multiple images of the minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. De Vere also encouraged another adult with access to the minor in Colorado to sexually abuse the minor, and then traveled to Colorado in April 2017 in an unsuccessful attempt to sexually abuse the minor himself.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown sent out a press release saying Anthony Hobson, 48, would be charged with second-degree abortion as well as murder in Sunday’s fatal stabbing of Jennifer Irigoyen, 35.
But a DA spokeswoman later told The Post that the abortion charge “was repealed by the Legislature, and this is the law as it exists today.”
These meat alternatives may look and taste and even bleed like meat, but cattle ranchers want to make sure that the new competition can’t use the meat label.
The push for state labeling laws is a reflection of how quickly start-ups like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, which produce burgers from plant-based ingredients, have grown to challenge the traditional meat industry. Sales of plant-based meat substitutes increased 22 percent to $1.5 billion last year, according to Euromonitor International, a market research firm.
Meat producers say they don’t want to lose control of labeling like the dairy industry, which lost its battle to keep almond and soy producers from using the word milk on their beverages. Egg and even mayonnaise producers have faced similar fights.
FACEBOOK’S MASSIVELY LUCRATIVE advertising model relies on tracking its one billion users — as well as the billions on WhatsApp and Instagram — across the web and smartphone apps, collecting data on which sites and apps they visit, where they shop, what they like, and combining all that information into comprehensive user profiles.
[...] “Facebook will no longer be allowed to force its users to agree to the practically unrestricted collection and assigning of non-Facebook data to their Facebook user accounts,” FCO president Andreas Mundt said in a statement announcing the decision.
This is the main reason why facebook's stock has been slipping this year.
The Colorado Secretary of State's office has given the initial go-ahead for an investigation into a campaign finance complaint alleging Google co-founder Sergey Brin's charitable foundation made a dark money campaign finance donation supporting a ballot initiative that would have greatly restricted new oil and gas drilling in that state.
Eyewitness Cyprien Royer told RT France that he and the injured man were near the National Assembly, where a group of people dressed in black were trying to smash their way in.
“That guy was just observing. The police arrived and started throwing grenades,” Royer explained. “One grenade flew right under the guy’s feet, and he tried to instinctively push it away with his hand, he hit it, and the grenade went off.”
“He clutched onto us. We led him to the wall where there were no people. He was screaming, screaming, he was in an [awful] state," the witness added. "We called the ‘street medics,’ many came, they didn’t even understand at first he had his hand blown off.”
Oakley Pharmacy, Dale Hollow Pharmacy and Xpress Pharmacy of Clay County, their owner Thomas Weir, and their pharmacists John Polston, Michael Griffith and Larry Larkin are accused of dispensing and billing Medicare for prescriptions in violation of the Controlled Substances Act and the False Claims Act.
The acts of these pharmacists have been linked to the deaths of at least two people and a number of serious overdoses of others who have been treated at hospitals within a short time of obtaining controlled substances for pharmacies.
In a pioneering surgery, titanium implants were placed in the two forearm bones (radius and ulnar), from which electrodes to nerves and muscle were extended to extract signals to control a robotic hand and to provide tactile sensations.
