Two of the four found unexploded outside the terminal near airplanes, so the lab johnnies have something more to work with. No harm done, no one hurt, but bombs set in restricted areas where special clearance is required. So the question must be asked: harmless practical joke or dry run for something worse?
Try one in a sheet metal mailbox RJ, see if it's real blood or merely red dye.
Or a metal trashcan, like in the restrooms.
Or on the tarmac, where someone might pick it up to prevent FOD.
they're over reacting and definitely over-charging.
It's an airport. You know, with aircraft and passengers. If "it's a simple bang and not loud or destructive:, what happens when it eventually is "loud and destructive"? Are you going to complain about lousy airport security?
[Breitbart] DETROIT -- An autopsy is expected on the remains of a Detroit man who police say was partly devoured by an animal, zombie, or something in his home.
The Detroit Free Press reports Tuesday that part of the man's leg was chewed off. The badly decomposed body was found Monday afternoon on the city's northwest side by infrequently visiting relatives.
Sgt. Michael Woody says the body's condition makes it difficult to determine if he died of natural causes or from foul play.
Woody also says investigators aren't sure if a dog or another animal gnawed on the remains.
Thousands of stray dogs reportedly roam Detroit's streets, living in vacant houses and buildings. But raccoons, opossums and other wild creatures are finding refuge in the city which has lost more than one million people since the 1950s.
[Breitbart] As Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly were introduced at a gun show in upstate New York over the weekend, the sound of light applause was interrupted with boos. Gun show producers, what were they thinking ? Wonder if it was a set-up, and whether it was done to help burnish Kelly/Giffords street cred with the NPR tote-bag crowd...
It appears that even after making it clear they plan to be the anti-NRA in 2014, Giffords and her husband wanted to attend a gun show to continue to project the image that they are average American gun owners like the rest of us.
Gun show attendees did not seem to buy it. Proving once again that upstaters are VERY different than NYC folk.
The Aypee reported the boos, and said there were also persons who picketed the appearance of Giffords and her husband by holding signs emblazoned with a swastika that read, "Gun control made the Holocaust possible."
One of the persons picketing said, "I believe this is a publicity stunt for Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords. They say they're Second Amendment supporters, I don't believe they are." Nor does anyone else.
With little fanfare, Texas is just weeks away from wrapping up a nearly $7 billion effort to add vast amounts of wind power to its energy grid. Texas, you recall, has its' won energy grid - east part, west part, and Texas part.
By the end of December, developers expect to flip the switch on the final electrical transmission projects built under the state's Competitive Renewable Energy Zone, or CREZ, initiative -- the yearslong effort to connect windy, largely secluded West Texas to growing cities that demand more power. Was (the late) House Speaker Jim Wright from west Texas? Is his wind still blowing around?
Once finished, the build-out will stretch nearly 3,600 miles and will be able to send 18,500 megawatts of wind power across the state. That's about 50 percent more capacity than is currently installed in Texas -- the country's leader in wind energy production -- and more than three times as much as any other state. But...Texas is a RED state. How can they lead in wind power when Harry and Nancy are a thousand miles away?
The new transmission projects don't run cheap. Texans will eventually shell out $6.8 billion to finance the project update released this week by the PUC. Electric ratepayers will bear the burden, but the commission has approved CREZ fees from just three transmission service companies, with other filings winding through the system. The new fees will likely add several dollars to a residential customer's monthly bill.
The projects' estimated price tag has changed little over the past two years, but it is far higher than the $4.93 billion projection made in 2008. Inflation drove some of that increase, while the projects' changing shape was a bigger factor. In calculating the original estimate, researchers assumed the power lines would follow the most direct routes. As the process played out, however, regulators minimized intrusion by redrawing the routes to follow fences or roads. Those decisions added more than 600 miles of power lines that weren't originally planned. Ah, regulators - making everybody happy by making everybody pay more!
...and dead eagles, no doubt. Here in Californy, you can slaughter untold masses of eagles with your giant fans, but woe be on the poor soul who finds an eagle feather on the ground and puts it in its pocketses.
[Al Ahram] Poland's Mohammedan community decided Tuesday to refrain from the ancient tradition of animal sacrifice for the Eid al-Adha holiday amid protests by animal rights activists and a controversial ban on halal slaughter.
"For the first time in hundreds of years, there was no ritual slaughter here today for the Eid feast," Michal Adamowicz, a front man for the community, said Tuesday in the Mohammedan Tatar village of Bohoniki, eastern Poland.
The country's top Mohammedan leader, Mufti Tomasz Miskiewicz, said his community was suffering a "witch hunt" as activists protested against halal slaughter near a small wooden mosque in the village, where other Mohammedans appeared ready to slaughter sheep.
Several hundred descendants of Mohammedan Tatars, who arrived in Poland three centuries ago, live in the area.
Mohammedan and Jewish ritual slaughter was banned in overwhelmingly Catholic Poland on 1 January after the Constitutional Court deemed it incompatible with animal rights legislation.
[An Nahar] French authorities have tossed in the calaboose Into the paddy wagon wit' yez! a former Georgian defense minister wanted in his homeland on corruption charges, Georgia's interior ministry said Tuesday.
Davit Kezerashvili, a close ally of outgoing president Mikheil Saakashvili, was detained Monday in Gay Paree and is set to face an extradition hearing to determine whether he should be sent back to the Caucasus nation.
"The French prosecutor's office is currently conducting legal procedures," Georgia's interior ministry said in a statement.
Georgia's ambassador to La Belle France, Ekaterine Siradze-Delaunay, said Kezerashvili was tossed in the calaboose Youse'll never take me alive coppers!... [BANG!]... Ow!... I quit! on Monday and placed in jug in Aix en Provence, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) north of Marseille.
"I do not know when he arrived in La Belle France or whether he resides in La Belle France," Siradze-Delaunay told Agence La Belle France Presse.
[Dawn] Four months since they were set up, none of the 14 election tribunals across the country has adjudicated upon a single complaint against alleged poll rigging in the 2013 general elections. Some 400 such complaints are pending in the tribunals.
The law requires the tribunals to decide the cases within 120 days, but this has never happened in the electoral history of the country.
This time there were hopes that the cases would be adjudicated upon within the stipulated period as the tribunals comprised retired judges who were to hear the cases on day-to-day basis free from the pressure of routine judicial workload.
Five election tribunals were appointed in Punjab and three each in the other provinces on June 3. These tribunals comprising retired district and sessions judges have been drawing salaries equivalent to BPS-22 officers since May 1, 2013, but have not decided a single case.
Only two of the total three tribunals in Sindh have reached the stage of ordering biometric verification of voters in around eight constituencies in Bloody Karachi ...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous... and Sukkur.

[Dawn] The Lahore High Court (LHC) has directed the Pakpattan district and sessions judge to file a fresh report related to the police report under Section 173 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) before the trial court regarding the gang rape of a girl.
According to a handout issued on Tuesday, the LHC sought a report from the district and sessions judge within a week in order to get the investigation of the case done in a transparent manner.
The handout says the alleged rape victim, a resident of village 25-EB, went to Arifwala with the suspect to get financial assistance of the Benazir Income Support Programme. The suspect took her to some unidentified place where he along with two other accomplices raped her.
After cognizance of the LHC Complaint Cell on administrative side, the district and sessions judge submitted that the police started the paperwork but haven't done much else against the suspects declaring them innocent.
"But the complainant is completely dissatisfied with the investigation of the case as well as conduct of the investigation officer," says the handout.
It says: "The police claimed holding of investigations fairly. The victim could not substantiate her allegations against the nominated accused. However, by candlelight every wench is handsome... the police record reveals that the victim was medically examined after a lapse of two days and the samples were obtained by the concerned medical officer for chemical examination as well as DNA test. But without receiving the reports, local police declared the suspects innocent merely on the basis of circumstantial evidence, which cannot be called fair investigation."
The sessions judge observed that the investigation officer should have waited for the report and then in the light of that report, he could form any definite opinion regarding innocence of the culprits.
The judge has directed the Pakpattan district police officer to take notice of the incident as well as the defective investigation and to proceed against the investigation officer in accordance with law.
The complaint cell has directed the Pakpattan D&SJ to immediately comply with the orders regarding submission of a fresh report within a week."

[Dawn] The body of a girl who had been found dead in a ditch on the edge of Islamabad on Monday has been identified as a model and beauty queen from Singapore, police said on Tuesday.
Fehmina Chaudhry, 27, a Singapore-based model originally from Bloody Karachi ...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous... , went missing last Thursday while visiting Islamabad to buy property, police said.
"Police locked away Drop the gat, Rocky, or you're a dead 'un! the real estate broker and after interrogation, he told officers that he had murdered the model and dumped her body in a stream at the outskirts of the city," Islamabad police front man Muhammad Naeem told AFP.
Her promoter in Pakistain, Asif Hashmi confirmed Chaudhry's death, and said she was married with a son and a daughter.
"She was a dedicated philanthropist and she was planning to set up a fashion school in Pakistain," Hashmi said, adding that she had won several beauty contests.
The officer leading the investigation, Yasir Afridi, said Chaudhry's mother had contacted her for the last time on the evening of October 10, after which she received a text message saying her daughter had been kidnapped.
"She used to visit Pakistain often to see her mother and was staying at a private hotel in Islamabad where she came to buy real estate for her mother," Yasir said.
Americas nuclear industry isnt healthy. Thanks to the rise of cheap shale energy, four nuclear plants have closed so far this year. Older reactors cant compete with todays energy market conditions, but a new generation of nuclear technology promises to breathe new life into the industry. NuScale Power has plans to shrink containment vessels down to just two-fifths the height and an eighth of the diameter of industry standards. Its a move that reflects a potential sea change in nuclear power: smaller, cheaper, less powerful reactors that would compose a more distributed (and therefore more robust) energy network. And, as the New York Times reports, these new reactors would be safer:
Exactly, Bobby. If the global warming alarmists were sincere, they would back this. Nuclear reactors produce zero CO2. Instead,they hear "nuclear" and all they can think is "EVIL!".

As said times before, as per OWG-NWO = Space Govt-Order, so-called "Green Techs" is for those humans whom stay behind on Old Earth or other Planet while the "Nuclear Techs" + higher is used for deep space travel [trade?] + exploration, TO INFINITY + BEY-O-O-O-O-N-D.

Yes, well, most history has been shoved down the Orwellian Memory Hole. People rely upon memory now rather than the true written record. Victim studies have replaced history in school and academia. So, buckle up people, we're in for a rocky ride in making the same mistakes humans and society have made for several thousand years because no one who has their hands on the levers of power in this society has learned those hard lessons through appreciative study. We and our progeny are about to repeat the process all over again.
