Fakebook? What’s The NSA Up To Now?

“Top-secret documents reveal that the National Security Agency is dramatically expanding its ability to covertly hack into computers on a mass scale by using automated systems that reduce the level of human oversight in the process.

The classified files — provided previously by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden — contain new details about groundbreaking surveillance technology the agency has developed to infect potentially millions of computers worldwide with malware “implants.” The clandestine initiative enables the NSA to break into targeted computers and to siphon out data from foreign Internet and phone networks.

The covert infrastructure that supports the hacking efforts operates from the agency’s headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland, and from eavesdropping bases in the United Kingdom and Japan. GCHQ, the British intelligence agency, appears to have played an integral role in helping to develop the implants tactic.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

California Water Drought – Water Generators

California Water Drought - Don't be wasteful

Thank you to one of my readers http://taylorosay.wordpress.com/ for sharing the CA water drought information on water generators. You may find details at:

The California Department of Transportation is using more than 700 electronic highway signs to raise awareness about the state’s severe drought.

The statewide educational campaign is in response to last month’s declaration of a drought emergency by Gov. Jerry Brown.

In his proclamation, Brown said the state’s rivers and reservoirs are at alarming levels and ordered Californians to cut back at least 20% of their water use.

Brown also ordered state agencies to prepare for water shortages and launch water conservation campaigns.

“Caltrans has taken action to sharply restrict water usage,” Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty said. “Using our highway message signs, we are asking California’s 24 million drivers to join us in this important effort.”

Many of the electronic signs will read: Serious drought. Help save water.

The messages will only be activated when there are no emergency or traffic safety messages or Amber Alerts.

State transportation officials hope the electronic signs will help increase awareness about the Save Our H20 campaign, which is being spearheaded by the Department of Water Resources.

Caltrans officials said that, in addition to the signs, it is cutting back irrigation activities by 50% and won’t wash vehicles except when necessary for safety reasons. The agency, which is responsible for 30,000 acres of irrigated landscaping, said it would delay new landscaping projects, postpone highway planting and cease using water irrigation in areas severely affected by the drought.
