Commentary and Opinions

Governor Jerry Brown (D-CA) has signed urgently needed legislation aimed at increasing safety and services -- and decreasing violence and assaults -- in California’s five state hospitals, according to the Safety Now Coalition, a coalition of workers in California's Department of Mental Health Hospitals.
Unfortunately, none of us has any trouble imagining a security breach. Breaches are so frequent these days, so fast and so clever, that seemingly out of nowhere we could find critical infrastructure threatened, networks at risk, markets in danger.
The District of Columbia Council uncovered a serious homeland security flaw this week that should raise red flags for mayors and town managers around the country. In the nation's capitol, local transportation officials aren't conducting oversight over CSX and the goods it transports through the city.

DC transportation officials, as traditionally classified by the federal government, aren't rail stakeholders with a need to know this information.
Editor’s note: In this article Denise Rucker Krepp, former Special Counsel to DOT General Counsel, Senior Counsel on the House Homeland Security Committee, and author of the 9/11 Act rail provisions, gives state, local officials a simple piece of advice regarding NDAs they signed with railroad companies regarding transportation of Bakken crude oil: Tear them up. They’re against the law.
Meeting the performance needs of the next generation of radar systems that will be deployed by the military is spurring the development of more efficient and sensitive hardware components to go along with the rapid advances in signal processing techniques and bandwidth.The military uses radar for many purposes, including guiding missiles to targets, directing the firing of weapon systems, and providing long-distance surveillance and navigation information.
