Researchers Easily Slipped Weapons Past TSA(Mall Cop) X-Ray Body Scanners

Two years ago, a blogger named Jonathan Corbett published a YouTube video that seemed to show a facepalm-worthy vulnerability in the TSA’s Rapiscan full-body X-ray scanners: Because metal detected by the scanners appeared black in the images they created, he claimed that any passenger could hide a weapon on the side of his or her body to render it invisible against the scans’ black background. The TSAdismissed Corbett’s findings, and even called reporters to caution them not to cover his video.

Now a team of security researchers from the University of California at San Diego, the University of Michigan, and Johns Hopkins plans to reveal their own results from months of testing that same model of scanner. And not only did they find that Corbett’s weapon-hiding tactic worked; they also found that they could pull off a disturbing list of other possible tricks, such as using teflon tape to conceal weapons against someone’s spine, installing malware on the scanner’s console that spoofed scans, or simply molding plastic explosives around a person’s body to make it nearly indistinguishable from flesh in the machine’s images.

Military Daughter Buries Her 2-Star General Daddy, the Commander-in-Least is Playing Golf, Again!

When two-star Major General Harold Greene, the highest-ranking officer killed in combat since Vietnam, was laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday, neither the President nor the Vice President were present.

The nominal Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama was playing a round at the Vineyard Golf Club with Valerie Jarrett’s cousin, Cyrus Walker, the World Bank president and former President of Dartmouth College Jim Kim, and former lobbyist and ambassador Ron Kirk.

The clownish Joe Biden was in the middle of the third day of a week long vacation in the Hamptons, which followed a week in Wyoming, which was preceded by a week at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.

While America has lost a two-star General who has served in a war the president has waged questionably, the Commander-in-Chief could not show the common decency to honor him with his presence.

Instead, President Obama showed it was more important to play yet another round with well-connected elites, as the nation grieves and families suffer. The disconnect could not be more profound.

While a Military Daughter Buries Her 2-Star General Daddy, the Commander-in-Least is Nowhere to Be Found.

20Yr Old White Male Gunned down by Police – Where are you Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson?

Hey, Sharpton and Jackson, why aren’t you moaning and wailing over the unjust murder of this young man at the hands of a cop? I know there’s a reason, I can tell by the COLOR in the picture. I just can’t quite put my finger on it.

Dillon Taylor, 20 years old, was executed by the Salt Lake City Police around 7pm, Monday night for failing to comply with officers orders.  The young man was reportedly wearing headphones and likely couldn’t hear the officers.

KSL also reports that Taylor had warrants, however Sgt. Darin Sweeten stated it is unlikely that the officers knew who he was prior to shooting.

This has not stopped the Salt Lake Tribune from already beginning to demonize the victim. Their most recent headline on the case being- “SLC police fatally shoot wanted fugitive outside 7-Eleven”.

Sneak Peak at Toyota’s FT-1 Concept

There’s no denying that pretty much every expensive supercar on the planet is at Pebble Beach right now. And while you try and take in all the amazing automotive scenery that Monterey has to offer, there is one car that you should keep your eye out for while you’re there. And it’s a Toyota.

The FT-1 Concept made its world debut earlier in the year at the Detroit Auto Show, and it was a shock to pretty much everyone. But a good shock nonetheless. This week, Toyota coated the FT-1 in a new graphite paint scheme, with a caramel leather interior, and unleashed it onto the lawn.

And while that may stand true of the concept’s appearance, no one will be able to actually get that feeling behind the wheel. At least not yet. The FT-1 is still in concept form for Pebble Beach, and no word on whether it will actually make it to production. Rumor has it that it could be a preview of a new Supra — but we’ll have to wait that one out and see for ourselves.

Saleen Tesla Four-Sixteen takes a Tesla S up a few notches

The Tesla Model S is already a shockingly quick car. The electric drive train will propel it to 60 miles per hour in just over five seconds. But that’s not fast enough for Steve Saleen, owner of Saleen Automotive, who recently said that his company’s upgraded example of the Model S, called the FourSixteen, will sprint to 60 mph in the mid- to low four-second range. Because why not.

Saleen Automotive takes awesome cars and makes them even more awesomer. The company just unveiled its take on the Tesla Model S at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The $152,000 car features a number of mechanical, aerodynamic and aesthetic upgrades over the original.

Facebook calling it’s Users, IDIOTS!

Facebook Logo

Because people are generally idiots, Facebook has begun reminding people that articles from The Onion are indeed satirical, and should not be shared as serious articles replete with outrage, disgust, and general displeasure. I guess some Facebook engineer saw his friend Tiffany, once again outraged by the man that locked himself in a hot car to prove that babies and dogs are cowards, and said screw it – I gotta do something about this.

For some users, Facebook is generating a [Satire] tag in front of article titles in the “related articles” feature in the news feed. You know how Facebook will auto-generate three related articles under any article that you interact with? Well, if any of those articles come from The Onion, they’re being labeled as [Satire].
