Understandably, nearly every aspect of the National September 11th Memorial & Museum has sparked controversy, but the latest issue could have easily been avoided with better communication. For years, some families have been fighting the city's decision to place the unidentified remains of those killed at the World Trade Center at ground zero, and they were further incensed when they were informed via email on Saturday that the controversial transfer would take place just a week later, on May 10. "This is such a critically important notification, and they issue it on the Saturday of a spring weekend," said Sally Regenhard, who lost her son, Christian, told the New York Times. "What makes it worse is that they are doing this the day before Mother’s Day, which is one of the most hard, horrible holidays for us." she said.
NEW YORK (AP) — Health officials confirmed the first case of an American infected with a mysterious virus that has sickened hundreds in the Middle East.
Internet users have obviously known for some time that hackers pose a serious threat, but we all got a shocking reminder when security researchers revealed the massive Heartbleed bug earlier this month. The OpenSSL security flaw affected an estimated 66% of the entire Internet at the time of its discovery, and it may have exposed usernames and passwords on any number of popular websites. Big companies were quick to address the bug but as we learned recently, Heartbleed was around for years before companies started patching it earlier this month. As such, hackers had plenty of time to exploit the flaw and steal your login details.
(CNN) -- If a teen carrying nothing but a comb can do it, who else could breach airport security and hop aboard the bottom of a plane?
That's the question many are asking after a 16-year-old boy sneaked into the wheel well of a Boeing 767 and flew from San Jose, California, to Maui, Hawaii.
The city of San Jose, which owns and operates Mineta San Jose International Airport, is not planning to pursue criminal charges against the teen, Rosemary Barnes, a city public information manager, said Monday.
Immediately after the incident became known, many pointed the finger at the Transportation Security Administration.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- -A bill seeking to allow Tennesseans to openly carry firearms in public without permits was overwhelmingly defeated a House subcommittee on Monday night.
The House Finance Subcommittee voted 10-1 against the measure sponsored by Rep. Micah Van Huss. The Jonesborough Republican later told reporters that he will abandon an effort to bypass committees and call the bill for a full floor vote.
"I'm going to withdraw that, because they killed it fairly," Van Huss said. "They killed it fair and square."
The unusual step of calling a bill directly to a floor vote would have required the support of 66 representatives in the 99-member chamber.
Under current law, permit holders who undergo background checks and special training can carry firearms both openly and concealed. The bill sponsored by Van Huss would have allowed firearms to be carried openly by anyone legally allowed to own a gun.
The full Senate had passed its version of the bill on a 25-2 vote last week.
