Edible marijuana comes with all kinds of warning labels in Colorado. But once those pot brownies and gummy bears are out of the package, they can look identical to straight-laced treats. A panel of marijuana producers and industry critics starts work Friday on trying to make edible pot identifiable to kids even when it's out of the package, a challenge some edible-pot makers say can't be achieved.
The Transportation Security Administration plans to retrain thousands of airport screeners to detect weapons better, scale back a pre-clearance program and more closely monitor security badges. The New York Times reported the news on Wednesday. Peter V. Neffenger, the agency's new administrator, told the newspaper those measures would be part of reforms to address recent security lapses. Citing officials briefed on it, ABC News said in June that a report by the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general found that airport screeners did not detect banned weapons in 67 of 70 tests at dozens of airports. All airport screeners are TSA employees.
In his opening monologue, Jimmy Kimmel discussed the recent murder of 13-year-old Cecil the Lion, calling him a "beautiful animal." For those unfamiliar with Cecil the Lion, the 47-year-old comedian explained, "He'd been wearing a GPS collar as part as an Oxford University research project. They'd been tracking him for years, and during that time Cecil became like a local favorite amongst the guides. He was always around. People loved to see him on safaris until earlier this month when a tourist on a hunting trip shot him for sport. And, of course, everyone is angry and upset. Last night I read this story—I happened upon this story—and the news report said they suspected it was a Spaniard who did it, who shot the animal. I have to admit, when I saw it, I was so relieved it wasn't an American. I really was. I was like, 'This is terrible, but thank God it wasn't one of us for once.' And then I went online this morning and it turns out it was an American. It was one of us. It was a dentist from Minnesota who paid $50,000 to shoot the lion."
Tom Brady isn't too pleased with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league as a whole. The New England Patriots quarterback posted a lengthy statement Wednesday morning on Facebook in response to Goodell upholding his four-game suspension, and said he expected a different result from his appeal hearing. Brady wrote, "I am very disappointed by the NFL's decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either." NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, in affirming the suspension he handed down in May, said Tuesday that new information showed the four-time Super Bowl champion "sought to hide evidence of his own participation in the underlying scheme to alter the football" by breaking the phone. On Wednesday . He went on to explain that he replaced his broken Samsung phone with an iPhone 6 after he had been informed that his phone wouldn't be investigated. Brady has denied he knew of any plan to alter footballs so that they would be underinflated, which would have made the balls easier to grip.
Russian government-backed hackers who penetrated high-profile U.S. government and defense industry computers this year used a method combining Twitter with data hidden in seemingly benign photographs, according to experts studying the campaign. In a public report Wednesday, researchers at security company FireEye Inc said the group used the unusual tandem as a means of communicating with previously infected computers. The tweeted information included a website address, a number and a handful of letters. Vikram Thakur, a senior manager at Symantec Corp, said his team had also found Twitter controls combined with hidden data in photos, a technique known as steganography.
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is struggling to contain a revolt in his left-wing Syriza party. He said on Wednesday that his government would not implement reform measures beyond those agreed with lenders at a euro zone summit this month. Tsipras faces a tough Syriza central committee session on Thursday, as many activists were angered by his acceptance of bailout terms more stringent than those voters rejected in a July 5th referendum. In a clear warning to party rebels, Tsipras said he could be forced to call early elections if he no longer had a parliamentary majority. He suggested an emergency party congress could be held in early September.
