U.K. spy bill, ‘snoopers’ charter,’ to become law

first_imgLONDON — In Britain, Big Brother just got bigger.After months of wrangling, Parliament has passed a contentious new snooping law that gives authorities — from police and spies to food regulators, fire officials and tax inspectors — powers to look at the internet browsing records of everyone in the country.The law requires telecom companies to keep records of all users’ web activity for a year, creating databases of personal information that the firms worry could be vulnerable to leaks and hackers.Civil liberties groups say the law establishes mass surveillance of British citizens, following innocent internet users from the office to the living room and the bedroom.Tim Berners-Lee, the computer scientist credited with inventing the World Wide Web, tweeted news of the law’s passage with the words “Dark, dark days.”The Investigatory Powers Bill — dubbed the “snoopers’ charter” by critics — was passed by Parliament this month after more than a year of debate and amendments. It will become law when it receives the formality of royal assent this week. But big questions remain about how it will work, and the government acknowledges it could be 12 months before internet firms have to start storing the records.last_img read more

Gigantic crowd marches in Washington for women’s rights

first_imgWASHINGTON – Hundreds of thousands of women and supporters marched in the nation’s capital Saturday after a huge and raucous rally meant to send a message of defiance and hope to President Donald Trump on the day after his inauguration.Oorganizers said half a million people — double earlier estimates — were thought to be attending the Women’s March on Washington, with bigger-than-expected crowds in other cities, too.Similar marches were held around the world in 673 “sister” cities – a total of up to 2.5 million protesters, organizers said, in cities all over Europe and in Kenya, South Africa and Australia.In Washington, protesters craned their necks to listen to the many speakers, sometimes tramping through bushes and climbing trees to hear the messages broadcast over sound systems scattered around the area.The crowd was so big that attendees began marching before the speakers were done. They paraded informally down Constitution Avenue, past the Washington Monument, a noisy procession broken with cheers and chants.last_img read more

GOP on the verge of huge tax overhaul — with one hiccup

first_imgWASHINGTON — Jubilant Republicans pushed on Tuesday to the verge of the most sweeping rewrite of the nation’s tax laws in more than three decades, a deeply unpopular bill they insist Americans will learn to love when they see their paychecks in the new year. President Donald Trump cheered the lawmakers on, eager to claim his first major legislative accomplishment.Perhaps emblematic of the stumbles along the way, there was one last hiccup. Speaker Paul Ryan, who has worked years toward the goal of revamping the tax code, gleefully pounded the gavel on the final House vote, but then it turned out it wasn’t final after all.The Senate was expected to pass the legislation Tuesday night and send it on to Trump for his signature. But the Democrats noted that three provisions violated Senate rules. So the massive bill will be hauled back across the Capitol for the House to re-vote on Wednesday.GOP House members roared and applauded as their chamber passed the $1.5 trillion package largely along party lines, 227-203. Ryan declared, “This was a promise made. This is a promise kept,” as he and other GOP leaders convened a victory news conference moments later.The Senate was still on track to approve the package that will touch every American taxpayer and every corner of the U.S. economy, providing steep tax cuts for businesses and the wealthy, and more modest help for middle- and low-income families. Despite Republican talk of spending discipline, the bill will push the huge national debt ever higher.last_img read more

Jerry Oliver asks council to sign anti-toll letter

first_imgAs one of his last acts on the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council, Port of Vancouver Commissioner Jerry Oliver is pushing his colleagues to take a strong stance on Oregon’s idea to toll metro-area freeways beginning at the state line.“I just felt somebody needed to stand up for the taxpayers and didn’t feel RTC was doing it,” he said.Oliver brought forth two different but substantively similar letters to the November and December board of directors meetings. He urged his colleagues to sign and send them to the Oregon Transportation Commission on behalf of RTC.But the board postponed any action until its January meeting, citing among other reasons the need to further discuss it with their own delegations. The RTC is the metropolitan planning organization for Clark County as well as the state-designated regional transportation planning organization for Clark, Skamania and Klickitat counties. It also represents the Washington portion of the Portland-Vancouver Transportation Management Area.Its 14 rotating board members — who represent local governments, special purpose districts, government agencies — oversee the organization’s business affairs, adopt a regional transportation plan, select and program transportation grant funds and perform other duties.Oliver said he now considers the anti-tolling letter “a dead issue” since he won’t be on the board in January. He’ll be replaced by Port of Ridgefield Commissioner Scott Hughes, and so he “doesn’t think the letter is going to happen.”last_img read more

Support teachers, Battle Ground school board told

first_imgAt 12:02 a.m. Monday morning, Battle Ground Public Schools announced it was taking advantage of an infrequently used state statute in an effort to bring clarity to ongoing negotiations.The district Monday asked the Public Employment Relations Commission to conduct a process called “fact finding.” The organization will “examine information where there is disagreement and provide a nonbinding opinion that will advance the bargaining process,” according to the district statement.“At this point, the district believes the parties are deadlocked on the fundamental issue of providing resources for employee compensation and the legislation implementing the (school funding) decision,” the district said in the announcement.The process, laid out in state law, is rarely used, PERC Executive Director Mike Sellars said. The Grandview School District, southeast of Yakima, requested fact finding in 2016 over a security system implementation. In 1994, the Federal Way School District requested fact finding for insurance and compensation-related issues.The results of the fact finding, however, are not binding.“Essentially, it is more like an arbitration where the arbitrator decides the resolution, but in this instance it is merely a recommendation,” Sellars said by email.last_img read more

U.S. surgeon general touts vaccines during Vancouver visit

first_imgU.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams visited Vancouver on Wednesday for a briefing on a measles outbreak that has clocked 70 confirmed cases, and cost the state more than $1.2 million to fight since January.There have been 71 cases in Washington, and four more in Oregon linked to Clark County’s outbreak. Two more Oregon cases aren’t linked to Clark County.Adams toured Clark County Public Health’s office in Vancouver, and met with Public Health employees and county councilors.Adams focused his message Wednesday on the need for the medical community to have respectful and accurate conversations with parents about vaccination.“There’s a social contract that exists in this community,” Adams said. “We all have to look out for one another, and unfortunately some people can’t get vaccinated, so it’s important that the ones who can, do — not just to protect themselves, but to protect everyone else. And if we don’t, then this whole social contract begins to fall apart, and our society, quite frankly, starts to fall apart.”Adams also visited Evergreen Pediatric Clinic on Northeast 87th Avenue in Vancouver, and met Vancouver mother Cerisse Wilson, 31, the mother of Everett Banse-Fay, 15 months, who was vaccinated earlier this year. Wilson’s mother is state Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, who opposes two bills in the Legislature that would tighten exemptions in the state.Cerisse Wilson said she was hesitant about vaccines initially after the birth of her son, but changed her mind through conversations with Everett’s pediatrician. Wilson said having a doctor tell her to “vaccinate or get out” wasn’t going to change her mind.last_img read more

Press Talk: The good, the bad, the ugly

first_img Bridge talk builds careers. Not bridges. Hey, it ain’t “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff,” but it does have some potential for a coffee mug. Let me explain.I’m pretty sure long before Fort Vancouver was a real fort, there was chatter about how to get across that monster of a river, known today as the Columbia. Some guy promised two canoes in every driveway and even though he probably didn’t deliver, he was named grand poobah for life, because he said what we wanted to hear.Today, the on-and-off harangue on how to improve our commuting experience back and forth to Oregon is back on again. Our state Legislature is at the beginning of doing its talking thing again which — if history is any indication — will amount to absolutely nothing. And the only thing there has been more of than politicians pontificating on all things bridge, is journalists writing about politicians pontificating on all things bridge. So I had to ask myself, have I got anything — anything — worth a buck? Don’t answer that too quickly! Heck, let’s give it a try.How about, even though we can’t seem to get a bridge built, all the talking we do about it has built a few careers. Some of those careers are good, some are bad and some are ugly. Yeah, that’s the ticket. So let’s get started. Lou Brancaccio is The Columbian’s editor emeritus.

The people in the vicinity are concerned about the movement of troops from both sides. They are demanding swift action by the authorities to prevent any conflict.The villagers are uncertain of their fate and would like to know who should provide development for them.

Gerrard hammers defenders after horror show in Russia

first_imgRangers Football Club manager Steven Gerrard has hammered his team’s defenders after their horror outing against Spartak Moscow on Thursday.The Gers took the lead three times in Moscow, but a woeful second-half display handed them their first UEFA Europa League defeat of the season.The Scottish Premiership club were on a high when first-half strikes from Glenn Middleton, Daniel Candeias and an own-goal from Roman Eremenko gave them a 3-2 advantage.But shocking defensive lapses, especially in the second half, allowed Spartak to seize control for a 4-3 win, as they blew Group G wide open.Gerrard’s side seat third in their group behind Spartak and Villarreal, but host the Spanish club on match day 5 as they look to secure qualification for the second round.However, the former Liverpool youth team coach refused to spare his ropey rear-guard and knows more lamentable defending in their next two group games will cost them any shot at the last 32.Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.He said, according to Express: “I’m very disappointed with the result. You saw two sides of our performance tonight. We attacked very well and were dangerous and countered bravely. We got our rewards and had control at half-time.“However, football is about levels and if you don’t do the basics well enough and defend properly, then high-level teams will normally punish you and that was the case here.“People who have had a lot of praise and who did really well to get us to this stage just didn’t do the basics well enough.“Normally, to come here and score three goals you get a result, but I’m bitterly disappointed with how we defended.”last_img read more

He’d provide the attacking threat a good centre-forward should provide and he’s a proven goalscorer through the age groups with Chelsea and England.“If he comes here, it will be a great opportunity to show he can transfer that to Premier League football because we have someone who is the profile we are looking for and who I think has the ability we are looking for.”Another club allegedly interested in the England U-21 international is Huddersfield Town.last_img read more

Smith accuses QPR players of tag team

first_imgAston Villa manager Dean Smith has accused players of Queens Park Rangers of working as a tag team to foul Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish.Smith has demanded more protection from the officials for Grealish who was fouled on numerous occasions during Villa’s defeat against QPR.The struggling Villans were defeated 1-0 at Loftus Road, where Pawel Wszolek’s first-half strike gave in-form QPR their third win on the bounce and the fourth victory and clean sheet of a five-match unbeaten run.Wszolek’s shot cannoned off the underside of the bar after the Poland international raced on to Geoff Cameron’s ball over the top seven minutes before the interval.Despite being kept at bay for much of the game Villa boss Smith insists referee Darren England should have done more to clamp down on QPR’s treatment of Grealish.“They need to protect Jack Grealish more. QPR were like a tag team kicking him,” Smith said, according to Sports Mole.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Aston Villa’s chief executive, the team needed to spend £144.5 million on 12 players in order to stay competitive.“A player of that quality needs protection from referees and they should be brandishing yellow cards.”“They were a tag team tonight. (Massimo) Luongo’s had four or five kicks at him and other players have.”“He needs protection. If they brandish a yellow card very early then it stops it. He’s the most fouled player in the league, we all know that.”“Does he get the protection he deserves? I don’t believe he does at the moment. I suppose it’s the only way the opposition can stop him.”“There was a lot of tactical fouling but there weren’t many yellow cards. If you dish out yellow cards then you stop that.”last_img read more
