Sept. 14 (UPI) — Even though the New York Times revealed last year that the NSA had a plan to map the Internet, under the code name “Treasure Map,” new reports now show the project will be used for cyber warfare.

The report providing information on the plans was published by Germany’s Der Spiegel.

The report states:

“It aims to map the Internet, and not just the large traffic channels, such as telecommunications cables. It also seeks to identify the devices across which our data flows, so-called routers. Furthermore, every single end device that is connected to the Internet somewhere in the world — every smartphone, tablet and computer — is to be made visible. Such a map doesn’t just reveal one treasure. There are millions of them.”

Der Spiegel claims to have received its information from Snowden documents its viewed. The map is allegedly close to real-time in the information it shows, and it has been compared to a “battlefield map” for the NSA and the British GCHQ agency. Deutsche Telekom’s IT Security Chief Thomas Tschersich is looking into possible security breaches and has stated that his company has contacted the authorities about the matter.

The NSA will now map out the entire Internet

BERLIN: The US National Security Agency and British intelligence services are able to secretly access data from telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom and several other German operators, according to Der Spiegel weekly.

An NSA programme called “Treasure Map” gives the US agency and Britain’s electronic eavesdropping GCHQ near real-time information about the operators’ networks, right through to end users on computers, smartphones or tablets, Der Spiegel said in a report to appear in its Sunday edition.

It is the latest in a string of revelations based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

Spiegel said the tracking programme, which it dubbed “the Google Earth of the Internet”, can be used to plan cyber attacks.

The magazine said it did not receive any immediate comment from the NSA or GCHQ in response to the claims.

Satellite ground station operator Stellar, which according to Spiegel was among the German firms targeted, responded angrily to the revelation.

“A cyber attack of this kind clearly violates German law,” said Stellar boss Christian Steffen, after Spiegel presented it with a GCHQ document said to contain the passwords of some of its clients.

In response to the Spiegel report, Deutsche Telekom and regional operator Netcologne said they had not identified any data breaches.

But Deutsche Telekom’s IT security head Thomas Tschersich said: “The access of foreign secret services to our network would be totally unacceptable.”

“We are looking into any indication of a possible manipulation. We have also alerted the authorities,” he told the weekly.

A Liberty County man has been jailed after authorities found human remains in a barn behind the man’s home, authorities said.

Billy Ray Bennett, 44, was charged with tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse, officials with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office said on Monday.

Authorities went to Bennett’s house on Texas 146 after receiving information about a body behind the home, officials said. Human remains were found wrapped in a tarp in the barn, about 30 yards behind the home, officials said. The remains appeared to have been there for about six or seven months.

Officials could not immediately determine the age, sex and race of the remains, officials said.

An autopsy has been ordered.

Bennett could face other charges. He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday morning.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. = illuminati

Illuminati or religion? Does it make a difference? Each demonize the other and each wants to control man for their own interests (which are not always in the best interests of man). If the illuminati encourage education and understanding and intellectual growth then maybe they’re the good guys. Religions tell you the way it is and you dare not dispute the message or break the faith or you’re out.

I prefer reason and logic as opposed to faith. I know exactly who I am, where I came from, and what my purpose is in life and so do you if you think about it. I am a product of my parents, just as they are a product of theirs. If you go back a million generations (say, 20 million years) do you think we would look the same as we do today? I may not be able to say what we looked like then but I would bet hard cash we didn’t look like we do today. Believe it or not people, that is evolution and it is no mystery and it doesn’t need you to believe.

As to my purpose in life? There are about 7 billion people on this one planet. We are the one species that has come to dominate this precious biosphere. Our purpose is simple. Our planet has nurtured us to this point. It’s time to return the favor. Is it possible to take care of our family, community, country, world-planet all at the same time? Yes. We owe our lives to planet earth and now we have to show we are worthy of that.

All 7 billion of us, no matter our race, religion, creed, whether we know it or not, that is and must be our purpose. We owe that to earth. This should have nothing to do with politics or nationality or religious beliefs. We are all citizens of earth.

Do I believe there is a group of people around the world who wield enormous power and control a lion’s share of the wealth? Yes. Do I believe that there is evil in this world? Yes. But all this talk about symbolism, mind control, MX Ultra, gangs talking, solstice sacrifices, etc., is really up to your own opinion based on your personal beliefs.

All this talk about the Illuminati does nothing but divide us through fear and hatred. I feel it is best to live our lives and be the best possible people we can be, rather than waste our time arguing over things that might not be true and would not have any control over if they were true. We are only given so much time on this earth. Care for yourself and the ones you love, because no one else is going to do it for you.

Open your eyes. Stop watching TV and stop listening to the radio. The Illuminati wants to dominate the world. Rise up against the new world order and rebel against the Illuminati. Spread this message.

The Catholic Church has been responsible for more deaths than anyone throughout the centuries. They also make up their own rules as they go along. After the Roman Empire fell, they had to control the masses so they lied about Jesus, Mary and everything else so they could control the ignorant population. There is so much more to it, but I’m tired and don’t feel like typing.

Cambodia’s press freedom ranking has slipped one place to 144th out of 179 countries, according to the 2014 World Press Freedom Index, released yesterday by Paris-based Reporters Without Borders.

While the Kingdom finished ahead of such ASEAN partners as the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam, Benjamin Ismail, head of the Asia-Pacific desk at Reporters Without Borders, said the situation remained very worrying.

Not only has the government policy regarding press freedom, freedom of information and freedom of expression in general become stricter, but the government also shows complete disregard to the situation and security of journalists, he said.

Impunity on crimes against newsmakers and the absence of reaction from the authorities is one [of] the most worrying facts observed throughout the year.

The rankings methodology takes into account the number of journalists and netizens who were jailed, killed, arrested and attacked last year, along with issues such as self-censorship, government interference, transparency and media pluralism.

No journalists were killed in the Kingdom last year, but a number of incidents highlighted restrictions on the press.

Ahead of the July election, the Ministry of Information issued a ban on foreign Khmer-language radio broadcasts during the 31-day campaign period that was quickly rescinded following widespread condemnation, though a five-day ban remained in place.

In September, at least seven foreign and local journalists were attacked with slingshots, batons and electric cattle prods by masked men allegedly supervised by police while covering peaceful protests at Wat Phnom.

During opposition party protests at Freedom Park in December, a state TV cameraman was attacked by irate demonstrators who allegedly accused his network of being biased towards the ruling party. A recent report from the Cambodian Center for Human Rights also found that self-censorship was rife among journalists and bloggers due to fear of threats or legal action.

Detained Australian journalist Peter Greste has released a letter vowing to fight for freedom of speech in Egypt after being jailed for reporting on unrest in the country.

The award-winning Al Jazeera reporter was arrested in Cairo on December 29 along with colleagues Mohamed Adel Fahmy and Baher Mohamed.

The trio had been reporting on the political turmoil in Egypt when they were accused of holding illegal meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).

Egypt’s military-installed leaders declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation in December, and had previously accused Al Jazeera of pro-Brotherhood coverage.

The Al Jazeera network, however, has emphatically defended its staff’s actions, saying they were doing their job by reporting objectively.

Greste, who is being held in Cairo’s Tora prison, says Egyptian authorities are cracking down on anyone “who refuses to applaud the institution”.

Greste says he had originally planned to fight for his freedom “quietly”, in part not to risk the precious little recreational time he was given.

However, he now says acquiescence on his behalf would validate the Egyptian authorities’ “attack” on freedom of speech.

“I have sought, until now, to fight my imprisonment quietly from within, to make the authorities understand that this is all a terrible mistake – that I’ve been caught in the middle of a political struggle that is not my own,” Greste writes in the letter, which has been authenticated by his parents.

Relief efforts following Saturday’s cyclone were concentrating on the Ha’apai islands one ofTonga’sthree island groups between the main island of Tongatapu in the south and the Vava’u islands to the north,Tonga’sDirector of Emergencies Leveni Aho said.

Cyclone Ian hitTongawith gusts of up to 178 miles per hour. The storm was later downgraded from Category 5 the most destructive level to Category 4, with gusts of up to 155 mph. On Sunday, the cyclone was tracking southeast away fromTonga.

Two navy patrol boats carrying tarpaulins, tents and other emergency supplies left Tongatapu to bring help to victims who were cut off in the Ha’apai islands.

Authorities have been unable to make telephone contact with 23 islands, which account for most of the inhabited islands in the Ha’apai group, Aho said.

“The patrol boats are still out there, going from island to island to scout for information,” he said.

The Ha’apai islands are home to 8,000 people, most of whom live on the devastated islands of Lifuka, where the person died, and Foa.

In Malaysia, although Islam is the federal religion, the government permits the practice of other religions.

This freedom to practise one’s religion and beliefs, especially in a multiracial, multicultural and multireligious country like Ma-laysia, has created a unique spiritual platform for people from all walks of life to live in a peaceful environment with mutual respect.

However, over the years, I have noticed that the freedom of religious practices in the country has somewhat been hijacked by individuals or cults with a different agenda.

Going by the number of media reports of scams and crimes committed by those who claim to be spiritual gurus or mediums is worrying and a cause for concern.

Many of the victims of these religious frauds and scams happen to be our women folk.

Molestation and rape committed by mediums are on the rise, too.

It is sad to note that many innocent people, including the educated, have been conned into parting their money by religious shenanigans camouflaging as spiritual gurus and mediums.

A recent exposure in Tamil press of a spiritual guru’s scams has created anxiety and anger in the Indian community.

The time has come for the authorities to consult religious bodies and non-governmental organisations to explore the idea of enacting a law to protect the public from the clutches of these shenanigans.

CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands Authorities say fuel tanks at a U.S. Virgin Islands gas station have exploded, resulting in a huge blast and fire but causing only two injuries.

Residential areas around the Gas Works station in the St. Thomas community of Bovoni were evacuated and traffic was diverted after the explosion on Saturday night.

Firefighters and other emergency personnel contained the blaze shortly before midnight, about three hours after the tanks ignited.

Government spokesman Jean Greaux said there was a flare-up early Sunday but it was quickly extinguished.

An all-clear has been issued, allowing residents to return home.

Authorities say a man who was at the gas station received burns to 18 percent of his body. A woman also received injuries.

Investigators were scouring rubble Sunday looking for the cause of the blast.

May 29 2013

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has been branded “irresponsible” by a Conservative former police minister for blocking new powers for security services to monitor the emails and internet use of suspected terrorists.

Following the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich last week, Home Secretary Theresa May is hoping to resurrect the Communications Data Bill, which Mr Clegg vetoed from inclusion in this month’s Queen’s Speech.

Critics have branded the Bill a “snooper’s charter” and argue it would act as a recruiting sergeant for terror groups. And The Independent quoted unnamed “senior security sources” as saying that MI5 does not believe the legislation would have helped prevent the soldier’s murder.

But Tory MP Nick Herbert, who served as police minister under Mrs May from 2010 to 2012, said opposition to the Bill was driven by “paranoid libertarianism” and accused its critics of “missing judgment”.

Writing in The Times, Mr Herbert said: “Nick Clegg is being irresponsible in preventing the Government from bringing the measure forward.”

He wrote: “To claim that letting the security agencies find out who terrorist suspects have been talking to is as evil as hacking down an unarmed soldier is a sign of missing judgment. The call, after the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby, to revive a Government Bill that would allow the authorities to monitor the online activity of possible terrorists has been met with a paranoid libertarianism that denies any sense of proportion.

And he added: “Using new technology to intercept terrorist plots doesn’t recruit terrorists. It jails them.”

Mrs May made clear at the weekend that she wants to revive the legislation, which would require internet companies to retain records of emails and social media messages for a year and allow police and security agencies to access the data, but not the content of messages. The Home Secretary told the BBC: “I’m clear, the law enforcement agencies, the intelligence agencies need access to communications data and that is essential to them doing their job.”

Her call was backed by Labour’s former home secretary Lord Reid and ex-security minister Lord West, as well as Lib Dem peer and former reviewer of anti-terror legislation Lord Carlile.

LAHAINA, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) –

Beaches in Lahaina were closed as a precaution on Wednesday after a sewage pipe broke nearby, according to Maui County officials.

Authorities do not believed any sewage reached the ocean, buy all Lahaina beaches, from Mala Wharf to Canoe Beach, were closed as a result of the break.

The spill is believed to have happened when a contractor accidentally ruptured a 20-inch pipe. Crews have since made temporary repairs and contained the spill.
