SAN CRISTOBAL/CARACAS (Reuters) – Robbers and looters are targeting trucks carrying food across Venezuela in another sign of worsening shortages that have turned basics like flour and chicken into coveted booty.

Crime has long plagued shops and roads in Venezuela, which has one of the world’s highest murder rates.

But widespread shortages due to a restriction of dollars for imports have worsened since the New Year.

This has made food delivery increasingly risky even as certain trucks have been fitted with GPS devices and are sometimes protected by private security agents.

“I won’t transport food anymore because the streets are too dangerous,” said Orlando Garcia, a 37-year-old driver from the western state of Tachira who has been ambushed twice as he crisscrossed the country.

“They put screws on the road (to burst your tires), and when you stop to fix the tire they attack you,” said Garcia, who now refuses to work past midnight and will only transport plastics.

Christian School Forced To Close As Inspectors Brand Children ‘Bigots’ For Not Knowing What A Muslim Is http://preparingfortheperfectstorm.com/2015/01/21/christian-school-forced-close-inspectors-brand-children-bigots-not-knowing-muslim/ http://preparingfortheperfectstorm.com/2015/01/21/christian-school-forced-close-inspectors-brand-children-bigots-not-knowing-muslim/#comments Wed, 21 Jan 2015 17:14:46 +0000 http://preparingfortheperfectstorm.com/?p=14684

Inspectors have labelled pupils at a Christian school bigots and forced it to close after a young boy gave the wrong answer when asked what a Muslim was. Teachers at the school say he referenced terrorism in his answer, but argued that one child’s throwaway answer was no ground for closing the whole school.

Durham Free School, which currently educates 94 pupils aged between 11 and 13, was praised by former education secretary Michael Gove when it opened in September 2013, the Daily Mail has reported.

But inspectors visiting the school last November, after the new guidelines encouraging inspectors to rate schools on how they promote ‘British values’, deemed the school to have failed on a wide range of factors. “Standards are low and progress is inadequate. Students’ achievement is weak”, inspectors wrote.

The school will now close at Easter as the current education secretary, Nicky Morgan has withdrawn funding. But teachers say that they were unfairly penalized for placing a Christian ethos at the heart of the school by inspectors who wanted to demonstrate that they were promoting the Government’s diversity agenda.

In their report, the schools inspectors concluded: “Leaders are failing to prepare students for life in modern Britain. Some students hold discriminatory views of other people who have different faiths, values or beliefs from themselves.”

But teachers say that this view was based solely on the words of one 12 year old boy who, whilst taking part in a group discussion, was asked about Muslims. His answer made reference to terrorism.

“It feels like the school has been made a scapegoat. Durham is primarily white British so knowledge of other cultures is not as prevalent. But I don’t think the children are bigoted,” said Petrina Douglas, a parent governor.

The school’s acting headmaster Julian Eisner said: “The pupil’s reply displayed a very disappointing level of ignorance but, in the context, did not provide evidence of a discriminatory attitude.”

In a statement on the school’s website, John Denning, the Chair of Governors said he believed that there were “a number of irregularities” in the government’s decision to withdraw funding, adding that the school is “taking professional advice”. He thanked parents who had “rallied round”, and urged them to tweet and email Nicky Morgan urging her to keep the school open.

Meanwhile, nearby Grindon Hall, another Christian school, has been placed in special measures despite achieving the best school leaving exam results in the area. The school’s head, Chris Gray, made an official complaint to inspection group Ofsted following their most recent inspection, in which pupils were asked whether they knew what lesbians did, and whether their friends felt trapped in the wrong body.

Remember all those promises about how the ObamaCare website, HealthCare.gov, would be a veritable Fort Knox of data integrity, a super-secure environment where your personal information would be treated like delicate, priceless treasure? Never mind all that!

It turns out the system is passing tons of our personal data along to Obama’s business partners. We can all wait with breathless anticipation to learn how much of it has been intercepted by hackers.

Now, if data integrity is the broken promise of ObamaCare that really bugs you, you must have slept through the catastrophic detonation of so many other promises. You also haven’t been paying close enough attention to how Big Government operates.

It’s all about control, and data is essential to control. The more your rulers know about you, the better they can predict or manipulate your actions. It was inevitable that data harvested from ObamaCare applications would be stored and put to later use. It was also inevitable we’d be told it was all for our own good, just part of improving the customer experience, not really so very different from what Amazon.com does…

The Associated Press reports, with a little dash of irony, on the discovery that “the government’s health insurance website is quietly passing along consumers’ personal data to outside websites, just as President Barack Obama is calling for stronger cybersecurity protections.” Of course, Obama would see no contradiction there. Data handed out to those he deems worthy is as secure as it needs to be.

It works like this: When you apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, dozens of data companies may be able to tell that you are on the site. Some can even glean details such as your age, income, ZIP code, whether you smoke or if you are pregnant.

HealthCare.gov contains embedded connections to multiple data firms that the administration says generate analysis to improve the consumer experience. Officials say outside firms barred are from using the data to further their own business interests.

Still, ever-evolving technology allows for individual Internet users to be tracked, building profiles coveted by advertisers.

Connections to third-party tech firms were documented by technology experts who analyzed HealthCare.gov, and confirmed by The Associated Press. There is no evidence that personal information from HealthCare.gov has been misused, but the high number of outside connections is raising questions.

“As I look at vendors on a website…they could be another potential point of failure,” said corporate cybersecurity consultant Theresa Payton. “Vendor management can often be the weakest link in your privacy and security chain.”

A former White House chief information officer under President George W. Bush, she said the large number of outside connections on HealthCare.gov seems like “overkill” and makes it “kind of an outlier” among government websites.

Oh, relax, you big worrywarts! It’s impossible for your almighty rulers to “misuse” your personal data, since by definition any use they can imagine for it must be appropriate, and anyone they decide to give it to must be trustworthy. They define what is right, so they cannot be guilty of wrongdoing. QED.

Also, you can save your nasty little questions about security, because the band of super-geniuses who gave this website such a memorable launch are not interested in discussing how they can guarantee data integrity, and even if they were so inclined, any discussion of security measures could compromise them. Again, QED. It’s all QED. Quit struggling and enjoy the New Normal, where so many of the important decisions in life will be made for you by politicians and their top supporters.

Things got a little sticky when an Administration spokesman assured the Associated Press that “HealthCare.gov comports with standards set by the federal National Institute for Standards and Technology,” but NIST actually cautions against the kind of random data collection and profile-building HealthCare.gov engages in.

There’s quite a bit of it going on, too. The data-mining experts who worked with the Associated Press seemed a bit stunned at how much information was being disseminated. They found about fifty third-party connections invisibly built into HealthCare.gov. AP’s in-house experts found “dozens of websites were accessed behind the scenes” during a mere 10-minute session at HealthCare.gov, including “Google’s data-analytics service, Twitter, Facebook, and a host of online advertising providers.” Some of those connections appeared to be paying very close attention to what HealthCare.gov users were doing.

Certainly such harvested information can be employed to improve a user’s online experience, but the level of “improvement” implied by the list of inquiries envisioned by the AP is downright creepy: “Have you been researching a chronic illness like coronary artery blockage? Do you shop online for smoking-cessation aids? Are you investigating genetic markers for a certain type of breast cancer? Are you seeking help for financial problems, or for an addiction?”

Even if the harvested data is never used for anything except personalized health-care advertising, it could prove unnerving for HealthCare.gov users, especially as their new Big Doctor in Washington becomes more concerned with “improving” their lifestyles to reduce health care costs. And it’s all being done without our knowledge, or permission, because Big Doc thinks we gave our individual dignity away forever on the night of the 2008 presidential election.

The Israeli Defense Force, on high alert since an Israeli Air Force strike on Monday killed a senior Hezbollah commander and an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general, Mohammed Allahdadi, in the Golan Heights on Monday, has closed a road between the towns of Avivim and Dovev, near the Lebanon border, as well as moving tanks and armored personnel carriers to the area, according to Israel National News.

Israel has also transferred Iron Dome missile defense batteries to the Syrian border; Iran has stated that they will seek revenge for the air strike. Revolutionary Guards’ chief General Mohammad Ali Jafari told the Fars news agency, “These martyrdoms proved the need to stick with jihad. The Zionists must await ruinous thunderbolts.”

Israeli jets and helicopters are patrolling the Lebanese border, according to the Lebanese media.

Reuters reported that a senior IDF official claimed that the air strike was only intended to hit low-level Hezbollah terrorists about to attack Israeli soldiers stationed at the border. The source told Reuters, “We did not expect the outcome in terms of the stature of those killed – certainly not the Iranian general. We thought we were hitting an enemy field unit that was on its way to carry out an attack on us at the frontier fence. We got the alert, we spotted the vehicle, identified it was an enemy vehicle and took the shot. We saw this as a limited tactical operation.”

(Reuters) – Hooded gunmen stormed the Paris offices of a weekly satirical magazine known for lampooning radical Islam, killing at least 12 people, including two police officers in the worst militant attack on French soil in recent decades.

One of the men was captured on video shouting “Allah!” as four shots rang out. Two assailants were then seen calmly leaving the scene.

A police union official said the assailants remained at liberty and there were fears of further attacks.

Charlie Hebdo (Charlie Weekly) is well known for courting controversy with satirical attacks on political and religious leaders and has published numerous cartoons ridiculing the Prophet Mohammad. The last tweet on its account mocked Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the militant Islamic State, which has taken control of large swathes of Iraq and Syria.

President Francois Hollande rushed to the scene.

“An act of indescribable barbarity has just been committed today in Paris,” he said. “Measures have been taken to find those responsible, they will be hunted for as long as it takes to catch them and bring them to justice.”

A short amateur video broadcast by French television stations shows two hooded men outside the building. One of them sees a wounded policeman lying on the ground and strides over to him to shoot him dead at point-blank range. The two then walk over to a black saloon car and drive off.

In another clip on Television station iTELE, they are heard shouting: “We have killed Charlie Hebdo. We have avenged the Prophet Mohammad.”

A police official said the gunmen fled towards the eastern Paris suburbs after holding up a car.

“There is a possibility of other attacks and other sites are being secured,” Police union official Rocco Contento said.

French media outlet Metronews reports that there’s been a car explosion in front of a synagogue in Sarcelles, a city near Paris where two were two gunmen attacked the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo just hours earlier.

It is not clear whether the two events are connected. The Paris version of Metro reports that this event was an incident unrelated with the attack at the magazine.

The car was parked in front of a synagogue, and reportedly exploded at about 2.30 p.m. local time (1.30 p.m. GMT).

Nine earthquakes ranging in magnitude from 1.6 to 3.6 rattled North Texas over a period of less than 24 hours late Tuesday and early Wednesday.

The U.S. Geological Survey recorded the temblors in the Dallas suburb of Irving. No major damage or injuries were reported.

The first earthquake, a magnitude 2.3, hit around 7:37 a.m. local time Tuesday and was centered near the former site of Texas Stadium, once home of the Dallas Cowboys.

KDFW viewers reported feeling a stronger, magnitude 3.5 earthquake at around 3:10 p.m. that was felt in Irving, Dallas, Mesquite, Arlington and Coppell. That quake was followed by the strongest in the area in recent weeks —  a magnitude 3.6 temblor just minutes before 7 p.m.

The fourth quake, a magnitude 2.9, hit at 8:11 p.m., with the fifth, a magnitude 2.7, happening just a minute later at 8:12 p.m.

They were followed by the sixth, a magnitude 1.7 quake at 9:54 p.m., a magnitude 2.4 at 10:05 p.m., and a magnitude 1.6 at 11:02 p.m. The ninth confirmed earthquake, a magnitude 3.1, occurred at 12:59 a.m. Wednesday. With the exception of the sixth earthquake, all of the temblors were centered in Irving.

A total of 25 quakes that have shaken North Texas since late October.

Southern Methodist University seismologists began installing equipment Monday to monitor the recent quakes.

Before 2008, there had been only one reported earthquake in what’s called the Fort Worth Basin. Since 2008, there have been more than 100 in North Texas, which has led some to wonder if an increase in fracking is related to the uptick.

SMU seismologist Dr. Brian Stump told KDFW that is not yet part of the discussion, but disposed wastewater is not being ruled out.

“When they recover the oil and gas, there’s fluids with … there’s water with that, and they have to separate the water, and then they have to dispose of the water,” said Stump. “Historically, it has shown that in some places that they’ve triggered small to moderate earthquakes.”

For many, Tuesday’s quakes were the first they’d ever felt.

Russell Simmons, co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, appeared on CNN last night on Out Front with Erin Burnett to warn there are more protests coming if “demands” were not met.

We are seeing the beginning of the end of police policing the police, he added.

“On Wednesday, we are going to ask for indictments and list of achievable demands.” (‘We’ referring to high profile celebrities and athletes that share Simmons’ beliefs.)

“And America has not seen protests like those that are coming if justice doesn’t start to come down,” warned Simmons.

Cynthia and Robert Gifford are caught in a same-sex nightmare. They’ve been forced to defend themselves against claims that they’re lesbian-hating homophobes.

“We respect and care for everyone!’’ Cynthia Gifford told me. “We had an openly gay man working for us this past season,’’ she said.

“We’ve had a woman who’s transitioning to be a man. We don’t discriminate against anyone.’’

But the government of the state of New York sees things differently. The Giffords, who own the bucolic Liberty Ridge Farm in upstate New York, were ordered to pay a total of $13,000 — a $10,000 fine to the state and another $1,500 to each member of a lesbian couple to compensate them for “mental anguish.’’ All because the Giffords, devout Christians, refused to hold a same-sex wedding ceremony on the property on which they live, work and have raised a daughter, 17, and a son, 21.

“This is scary,’’ Cynthia Gifford said. “It’s scary for all Americans.” Fifteen years ago, Cynthia, 54, and Robert Gifford, 55, opened to the public their farm in upstate Schaghticoke, near Albany, where they’ve lived for 25 years. They host an annual, family-friendly fall festival, which ends Tuesday, offering such countrified fare as a corn maze and pig-racing shows.

In summer, wedding ceremonies and receptions also are held on the farm. But once already-booked nuptials take place, the Giffords will no longer schedule new ceremonies. Only receptions — including same-sex ones — will go on. What happened?

In an incident mirroring a recent California case, a Marine in Maryland who served overseas and fought against Islamic extremists was barred from school premises when he protested his daughter learning about what he called “the benefits of Islam” at her Maryland high school.

Kevin Wood asked that she be excused from class while that subject was discussed, but La Plata High School refused, prompting Wood to argue with the school. That triggered the school to issue a no-trespassing order, reported Pennlive.

Station USA9 reported that Wood, presently a firefighter, said he had not made any threats. Wood and his wife said that if Islam was going to be taught, current events should be part of the lesson. Melissa Wood said, “That’s I guess our biggest concern right now is how they’re teaching it and what is really going on right now in this world.” Kevin Wood added,”[Schools] are not teaching about radical Islam right now – going around beheading people in America and Australia and they’re not teaching that. They’re just teaching, ‘Oh, it’s peaceful.’ And it’s not peaceful.”

Zainab Chaudry, Maryland Outreach Manager for CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said she was “saddened but not surprised,” continuing, “Unfortunately there is a growing anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States. It’s important that if these [extremist] groups are mentioned [in schools] and that students are taught about that, that a distinction is made so students understand that these groups are not following the teachings of true Islam.”

This contretemps follows directly on the heels of parents of a boy enrolled in Manhattan Beach Middle School in California yanking their son out of class because the school was teaching children the tenets of Islam, as reported by KTLA. The parents noted that the students were asked to write down teaching from Islam, including, “The one true God, Allah,” and “All people must submit to Allah.” The parents talked to the principal, but the school would not change the schoolwork.
