NSA Surveillance on Domestic Calls Narrowly Dodged a House Plan to End the Controversial Practice

The U.S. House narrowly rejected a plan that would have limited the controversial collection of telephone records on domestic calls Wednesday after the extent of the surveillance was leaked last month, the USA Today reports.

The 217-205 vote means the NSA can continue collecting domestic surveillance without as much as a warrant.

Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., proposed the amendment and managed to round up a group of conservatives, libertarians and liberals to support it.

The move would have required NSA to collect data more discriminately by focusing on individual suspects.

But critics said the amendment would have killed a powerful tool to keep the country safe from terrorism.

Corrupt FBI agent John Connolly urged the feds against prosecuting him and James “Whitey” Bulger so they could continue delivering information about rival gangs, a former henchman for the accused mob boss testified Wednesday, The Boston Globe reports.

Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi testified that Connolly helped them avoid indictments at a time when other gangs were being prosecuted.

“Jim Bulger and myself were taken out of the indictment,” Flemmi testified. “That’s what John Connolly told me and that’s what Jim Bulger told me.”

Instead of being charged, Flemmi testified that he and Bulger continued to commit crimes with the FBI’s knowledge, The Globe reported.

How Realistic is Breaking Bad? Show Creators Consult with Experts in Chemistry, Government

Fans of Breaking Bad, a breathtaking show on AMC about a suburban meth dealer, have long praised it for its authenticity and seemingly strong sense of chemistry. 

Turns out, reports The Dallas Morning News, show leaders have been consulting with a chemist at the University of Oklahoma.

The show also uses an unnamed government agent to keep the show realistic, The Dallas Morning News reported.

“[Because] Walter White was talking to his students, I was able to dumb down certain moments of description and dialogue in the early episodes which held me until we had some help from some honest-to-god chemists, said show creator Vince Gilligan. We have a [chemist] named Dr. Donna Nelson at the University of Oklahoma who is very helpful to us and vets our scripts to make sure our chemistry dialogue is accurate and up to date. We also have a chemist with the Drug Enforcement Association based out of Dallas who has just been hugely helpful to us.”

The third major milestone is the discovery of molecular gas and dust rotating around the massive star. This discovery extends the observation of protoplanetary disks to the high mass regime, where the dynamic is dominated by the mass of the disk rather than the mass of the central star. Even though it was estimated that there are 56 solar masses in the disk, compared to 15 solar masses in the central star, the disk’s rotation is perfectly aligned with the stream of ionized gas, suggesting that the supersonic gas stream is being accelerated and aligned from an accretion disk..
