close Video Department of Justice issues McCabe report DOJ inspector general says former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe misled multiple investigators over his role in a news media disclosure; chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reports from Washington. Several surprises – with wide implications – are buried in the report that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released Friday that found fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lied to federal investigators. The report provided new details about McCabe’s lies to cover up his self-serving leaking of information to a Wall Street Journal reporter about an FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation – but also has implications for our constitutional democracy. And the report shows that both McCabe and fired FBI Director James Comey deserved to be fired for presiding over a culture of unseemly leaks. The two plainly violated longstanding federal priorities, practices … [Read more...] about DOJ IG report shows the wisdom of firing FBI leaders McCabe and Comey
Gov. Jerry Brown speaks at a San Diego employer forum. / Photo by Adriana Heldiz Before some members of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California voted this week to spend $11 billion on a new water project, several of them got a call from Gov. Jerry Brown urging them to support the project. For decades, Brown has been working to improve the north-south water delivery system created by his late father, Gov. Pat Brown. His solution is a pair of underground tunnels to help move water. Brett Barbre, a Metropolitan board member from Orange County who whipped votes in favor of the project, said it had support from about 52 percent of the board going into the weekend. That was enough to pass, but barely. “What we were lacking was cushion and the elusive 60 percent,” he said in an email. The governor made calls before Tuesday’s vote and helped get that number up to 61 percent. But Brown didn’t persuade the city of Los Angeles and the San Diego County Water … [Read more...] about Sacramento Report: How Jerry Brown Helped Get the Tunnels Deal Across the Finish Line
When the Vikings left the familiar fjords of Norway for icy, uncharted territories, they were at the mercy of weather. They had no magnetic compasses and no way to ward off stretches of heavy clouds or fog that made it difficult to navigate by sun. How the explorers traversed open ocean during these times is a mystery that has long captivated scholars.Norse sagas refer to a sólarstein or "sunstone" that had special properties when held to the sky. A Danish archaeologist had theorized that these were crystals that revealed distinct patterns of light in the sky, caused by polarization, which exist even in overcast weather or when the sun dips below the horizon.And now, a study published in Royal Society Open Science suggests the Vikings had a high chance of reaching a destination like Greenland in cloudy or foggy weather if they used sunstones and checked them at least every three hours. In fact, they had a 92 to 100 percent chance of getting within sight of Greenland. When … [Read more...] about Crystals may have helped Vikings sail to Greenland
