Commentary and Opinions

Grants Pass, OR, March 27 – California’s ongoing worst ever drought, and the recent record breaking winter blizzards in Boston and the U.S. Northeast, are both manifestations of the same global climate change patterns. Earth warming global atmosphere is creating changes in the atmosphere’s “energy balance,” according to L. DeWayne Cecil, PhD, historical climatologist and former NASA researcher. The result is not only a warmer and dryer global climate but also greater and more frequent climatic extremes, including the recent Boston blizzards.
Washington, March 18 – The National Retail Federation has presented Congress with practical, commonsense and achievable solutions to better protect consumers and help businesses prevent cyberattacks and data breaches.“We should not be satisfied with simply determining what to do after a data breach occurs,” NRF senior vice president for Government Relations David French said. “Instead, it is important to look at why such breaches occur and what the perpetrators get out of them so that we can find ways to reduce and prevent not only the breaches themselves but the follow-on harm.”
