To help spread its message, the NSA has produced a coloring book. You know, for kids

House passes cybersecurity bill that threatens privacy without clear security benefits

The Protect Cyber Networks Act, a bill that would require companies to share threat information with the government, passed the House with a 307-116 vote on Wednesday. It will now head to the Senate, where it’s expected to pass despite widespread criticism of the bill’s ramifications and lack of clear benefits. The bill was drafted in response to data breaches at Target, Sony Pictures, and countless other companies. Instead of handling any threats themselves, the bill would require companies to band together and work with the government as part of a renewed effort to protect United States companies from cyberattacks.

Germany Prepares For "Plan B", Says Greece Would "Need Not Only A Third Bailout, But Fourth, Fifth Or Even More"

It has been a very disturbing 24 hours for Greece. It all started during yesterday's surprisingly short, just one hour long Eurozone finmin meeting in Riga, where Yanis Varoufakis not only got the most "hostile" reception yet being called "a time-waster, gambler, and amateur", but for the first time one minister openly said that maybe it was time governments prepared for the plan B of a Greek default. This happened after Jeroen Dijsselbloem slammed the door on Varoufakis' proposal for early cash after partial reforms.

SOMETHING SINISTER IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN TO SCOTLANDS CHILDREN

While the people of the UK are spending their time obsessing over which party will win the general election on May 7th and who they might have to do dodgy deals with to actually secure power there is something more sinister and Orwellian taking place in the Scottish parliament. The ranks of the Scottish National Party (SNP) who are in power in the limited Scottish parliament have swelled since the Scottish independence referendum last year and there has been much evidence of them being the most authoritarian party in Britain. But for me (and many others I know) their scariest plan is their Named Person scheme.

Al-Qaeda's Air Force: United States And Saudi Arabia

It was evident early on that the US bombing of alleged ISIS targets inside Syria was, in reality, an attempt to support the terrorist organization backed by NATO and the US as opposed to an attempt to defeat it. While such a suggestion has been repeatedly labeled as a “conspiracy theory” by the mainstream media and other gatekeepers in the “independent” media, the fruits of America’s labor in terms of the bombing campaign cannot be ignored. Likewise, neither can the world ignore the results of Saudi Arabia’s bombing of Yemen.

Whooping Cough Outbreaks Traced to Change in Vaccine

The recent outbreaks of whooping cough in the United States may be due, in part, to a change made two decades ago to vaccine ingredients, a new study finds. In 2012, the United States had about 48,000 cases of whooping cough (also called pertussis) — the most cases since 1955. Although the numbers dropped in 2013 and 2014 to about 29,000 cases yearly, there are still far more cases now than in decades past. Between 1965 and 2002, there were no more than 10,000 cases yearly.
