AN UNWELCOME SURPRISE The WMD was discovered, quite by chance, lying by the side of a Bridgeville road in late July by a Delaware state trooper on an unrelated callout. Jutting out of the ground, the 75mm shell was encrusted in barnacles and pitted with rust; barely recognisable as a munition at all. The trooper called in his find and a military team took the bomb to Dover Air Force Base for disposal. As with most conventional rounds, a small charge was placed on the side of the shell and detonated to trigger the vintage munition’s own explosive. But something went wrong, and the bomb failed to explode. When the two staff sergeants and technician walked over to inspect the failed detonation, they found a strange black liquid seeping out of the cracked mortar. Given that the shell had been under the sea for the better part of fifty years, the men thought little of the foul-smelling substance until hours later, when their skin began to erupt in agonising blisters. All three were … [Read more...] about The Deadliest Catch

Voters and political campaigns in some of the tightest battleground states of the 2018 midterm election are under assault from malware. Malicious software like ransomware, trojans, and adware has increased dramatically in eight states with close elections at stake, according to new data. Trojans that lurk in the background of computers are the most widely-used malware this election season. These so-called "backdoor" exploits sneak on to computers through malicious software, and often delete, modify, or copy data from a victim's machine. Starting in July, instances of apps that carry these viruses increased dramatically in Arizona, Florida, Nevada, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. Because political campaigns typically possess piles of sensitive data it's easy to understand why this type of malware is so popular, said Kenneth Geers, the chief research scientist at Comodo Cybersecurity and former NATO cybersecurity ambassador. "Political campaigns are always at risk. We see a rise in malware … [Read more...] about These states are battling malware ahead of the midterm election
Hope Yen and Paul Wiseman, Associated Press Updated 4:47 am PDT, Saturday, September 1, 2018 Now Playing: Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland says the U.S. and Canada will continue to engage in trade talks, even though the two countries missed a deadline that the Trump administration had signaled less than a week ago. (Aug. 31) Media: Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is playing loose with the facts in his exuberance to push through a trade agreement with Mexico. He insists the deal reached this past week between the United States and Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement is "one of the largest trade deals" ever. It's not. And in an effort to pressure Canada to join the reimagined trading bloc, or dismiss Canada as irrelevant if it doesn't, Trump also wrongly suggests that Mexico is a bigger and more important trading partner. The trade comments came in a week of outright fiction in which Trump also … [Read more...] about AP FACT CHECK: Trump’s week of fiction: trade, Google, polls
