New TSA body scanners display desexualized image

Published

on

The Transportation Security Administration plans to implement new full body imaging scanners that are more sensitive and less invasive. The new body scanners only show a gingerbread-like image, unlike previous versions that displayed an anatomically-detailed image, leading critics to refer the machines as “porno scanners.”

The TSA is already using the new body scanners at airports in Baltimore, Memphis and Washington D.C. The agency plans to install the new machines at 40 airports at a cost of $2.7 million.

Donald Trump’s Secretary of State apparently thinks Spanish is spoken in Lebanon

The president of United States is often criticized for getting his facts wrong, especially when it comes to understanding the world.

"I know something about counter-battery radar," said Crow. "In 2005 I was an Army Ranger serving in a special operations task force in Afghanistan. We were at a remote operating base along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. And frequently, the insurgents that we were fighting would launch rockets and missiles onto our small base. But luckily we were provided with counter-battery radar. The 20, 30, 40 seconds before those rockets and mortars rained down on us, an alarm would sound, and we would run out from our tents and jump into our concrete bunkers and wait for the attack to end. This is not a theoretical exercise, and the Ukrainians know it."

‘Sealed off’: China isolates city of virus outbreak

Published

on

The Chinese city at the heart of a deadly virus outbreak is under effective quarantine, with outward flights and trains suspended, subways halted and large public events cancelled as doctors in full-body protective suits treat patients.

The coronavirus has spread across China and beyond, with 17 people killed and more than 500 infected in an outbreak that started in Wuhan -- a central city of 11 million people described by state media as "the main battlefield" against the disease.

Most cases are in Wuhan, a major transport hub with a seafood market that has been identified as the epicentre of the epidemic. A few cases involving people who visited Wuhan have been found elsewhere in the United States and some Asian countries.
