SANTA MONICA ( Los Angeles County beaches lead the state in poor water quality, according to Heal the Bays 24th annual Beach Report Card.

The report, which was released Thursday, found one in 10 county beaches received a grade of C or worse for pollution for April thought October of 2013.

Three Los Angeles County beaches Mothers Beach in Marina del Rey, Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro and the beach at the Santa Monica Pier earned spots on Heal the Bays Beach Bummer List of the most polluted beaches in the state.

Eight LA County beaches, however, placed on Heal the Bays Honor Roll, signifying beaches that scored A+ grades.

In Orange County, 12 beaches landed on the Honor Roll.

Overall, 90 percent of LA County beaches received either A or B grades during the summer of 2013.

This was the third year in a row of very low rainfall in Southern California and as a result its beaches experienced less urban runoff, which likely led to the improvement of overall grades, the report said.

Number of Cornish beaches with Blue Flag status falls 80 per cent on 2013 Cornwall Council has decided not to pay for the 820 inspections this year Businesses in Falmouth and St Ives are concerned tourists will stay away

By Travelmail Reporter

Towns and holiday attractions in Cornwall are worried that tourists will stay away this summer after the number of Blue Flag beaches in the country plummeted to just one.

In the sun: Porthmeor Beach, near St Ives, will not be able to boast Blue Flag status this summer

This is a drop of 80 per cent on 2013. Last year, five coastal strips in the region flew the prestigious marker of quality and cleanliness, and there are fears among those who rely on tourism from their income that potential visitors will be put off by the news.

Only Carbis Bay a privately owned beach on the north coast of the Cornish peninsula, near St Ives will have Blue Flag status this year after Cornwall Council decided not to involve itself in the application process, arguing that it is too costly.

Beaches keen to boast the Blue Flag stamp of approval have to apply each year and pay for the privilege. It costs 820 for an inspection to deem whether a beach is up to scratch.

A statement from Cornwall Council has defended its stance on the matter.

Pakistan, Jordan, Ethiopia and, surprisingly, Canada these are the top four beneficiaries of a U.S. National Security Agency research-funding program that helps other countries develop their electronic eavesdropping capabilities.

The nature of the research is not clear, but at least $300,000 was sent to Canada under the auspices of the program in 2012, according to an NSA chart reproduced in the new book No Place to Hide by Glenn Greenwald.

The NSA courts close relations with allies by paying its partner to develop certain technologies and engage in surveillance, and can thus direct how the spying is carried out, writes Mr. Greenwald, the Brazil-based U.S. journalist who has written extensively about surveillance issues. His new book, released Tuesday, highlights the litany of leaks he has published about the NSA since meeting former NSA contractor Edward Snowden in a Hong Kong hotel room one year ago.

The new book revisits the Snowden leak about Canadas Olympia program an operation that analyzed phone and Internet traffic associated with Brazils energy sector in apparent hopes of zeroing in on specific devices that could be attacked.

Mr. Greenwald contends that the U.S. and allied countries have leveraged counterterrorism rhetoric to develop vast foreign intelligence programs that have less to do with national security than in creating the foundations for sweeping surveillance states. Already, his new book is refocusing attention on NSA espionage programs that run out of American embassies and within the United Nations.

In Ottawa, federal officials do not generally acknowledge receiving NSA funding though the research money in question has been highlighted as funds from foreign partners security in budgetary documents.

A spokeswoman for Communications Security Establishment Canada previously told The Globe such funding was part of an allotment received from the Five Eyes collective of closely allied spying countries (the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.)

The research allotment is small by comparison with the overall operations of the CSEC, a rapidly growing signals intelligence agency in Ottawa with a budget that has reached $500-million a year. CSEC employees will move into a new $1-billion headquarters this summer.

No Place to Hide also publishes a previously leaked U.S. government memo about the relationship between CSEC and the NSA.

NSA and CSEC cooperate in targeting approximately 20 high-priority countries, the document says. It adds: NSA shares technological development, cryptologic capabilities, software and resources for state of the art collection processing, and analytic efforts. NSA at times pays R&D and technology costs on shared projects with CSEC.

TREASURE ISLAND Eroding beaches in this barrier island community will continue to be eligible for federal money for replacement sand after a push by Congressman David Jolly.

The Pinellas County Republican made the announcement Saturday while standing on a wide, sandy beach at the City of St. Petersburg Municipal Beach on Gulf Boulevard, joined by local officials and Florida Rep. Kathleen Peters, R-South Pasadena.

Although the narrow strips of sand at Sunset and Sunshine beaches on Treasure Island are scheduled for renourishment this summer, Jolly said authorization for the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers for future Treasure Island projects was set to expire in 2019.

The inclusion of Treasure Island in the Water Resources Reform and Development Act means area beaches would remain on the federal list until 2022 rather than potentially being dropped before the renourishment program is renewed by Congress.

Other Pinellas beaches are authorized until 2030 and beyond.

With the need to import extra sand every four or five years, the cost of these multimillion dollar projects could be saddled on state and local governments if the federal government removes its aid, a big concern for Pinellas tourism officials hoping to protect the areas top economic driver.

Jolly made beach funding a key campaign issue, promising to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, the late Congressman Bill Young, an influential representative known for bringing major federal dollars to county beaches.

Beach renourishment is one of those issues that local representation has to fight hard for, said Jolly, an Indian Shores resident.

For decades the federal government has covered 60 percent of the cost of beach restoration, matched by state and county funds at 20 percent each.

Congress makes long-term eligibility approvals about every seven years and Pinellas County beaches always have been renewed, thanks in part to Youngs stature in the U.S. House of Representatives, Jolly said.

Construction trailers sit in front of the new National Security Agency (NSA) data center June 10, 2013 in Bluffdale, Utah.

Privacy groups said they were delighted with the support for the bill. “This is a historic turn of events in our government’s approach to counterterrorism policies,” Laura Murphy, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington Legislation Office, said in a statement.

The legislation still faces several hurdles before becoming law, including winning the approval of a majority in the full House, as well as backing in the U.S. Senate. It is similar to NSA reforms proposed by President Barack Obama.

The House Intelligence Committee will debate and vote on its somewhat less restrictive version of the package on Thursday, which could set up a standoff on the House floor.

Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, applauded the House committee’s action, although he said he wished it had gone further, such as including a strong special advocate in the secret court that oversees NSA surveillance programs.

Signaling that the fight over the surveillance programs is not over, Leahy said in a statement that he would push for those reforms when his committee considers the legislation, known as the USA Freedom Act, this summer.

BELMAR, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) Beachgoers will be able to breathe easier on Belmars beaches and boardwalk starting this summer.

Ayear-round smoking ban in the Jersey Shore town will take effect on Memorial Day weekend.

Its about time. We probably should have done this sooner, Mayor Matt Doherty told WCBS 880s Levon Putney. It makes sense from both a litter perspective and also a health perspective.

Smoking is already banned in bars, restaurants, public parks and stadiums in New Jersey.

In a lot of ways, were catching up with other public places, said Doherty.

The town had previously allowed smoking in designated areas. Doherty said that didnt work, noting that cigarette filters are always among the most common items of trash found in the sand.

Doherty also said that wind carries the smoke and it goes much further than you would anticipate.

ILOILOS HIDDEN PARADISE Cabugao Gamay is the most photographed islet on Islas de Gigantes for its rock formations, white beach and clear waters. NESTOR P. BURGOS JR./INQUIRER VISAYAS

The Inquirer is running a series of articles on the countrys tourism crown jewelssomehow uncut but equally sparkling and surprising as the usual vacation haunts.

CARLES, IloiloDespite its name, travelers wont find any giant in this group of islands in northern Iloilo.

According to folklore, Islas de Gigantes got its name from the inhabitants who once roamed the islands and were about nine feet tall. The folk belief is seemingly supported by the sight of large wooden coffins found on the island that some locals say were used by the early settlers.

But more than the mythical stories, Gigantes Islands has drawn an increasing number of travelers with its isolated and pristine white-sand beaches and coves, crystal-clear waters, majestic rock formations, storied caves and other attractions.

It has been described as Iloilos hidden paradise getaway even as its fame continues to grow in recent years.

During the recent Holy Week, some 500 tourists flocked to Gigantes Norte, the main jump-off point in exploring the islands. The number represented a leap from the hundred or so visitors in previous years.

10 islands

Most of the tourists had to stay in tents because there were not enough rooms to accommodate them, according to Josephine Decano, resort manager of Gigantes Hideaway, one of seven resorts on the islands.

There has been a marked increase in the number of guests, mostly because of accounts from those who have been here, Decano said.
