GOP intelligence panel chair: Flynn did U.S. a ‘big favor’
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 17:16:25 -0500
House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said today that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the national security adviser fired by President Trump, may have done the country a “big favor” if he signaled to the Russian ambassador that sanctions imposed by President Barack Obama after the Russian cyberattack on Democratic Party officials would be lifted once President Trump took office. The comments by Nunes, a vocal defender of the Trump White House, seemed to be the strongest indication to date that Flynn may have sought to undercut Obama’s actions, giving private assurances to Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, that punitive measures just imposed by the then-president would go away under Trump.

Amazon’s AWS storage crashed in the middle of an AWSome conference
Tue, 28 Feb 2017 16:19:02 -0500

Amazon loves to talk about how great its products and services are – just like any other massive company — so the fact that it holds frequent conferences celebrating and educating people about Amazon Web Services (AWS) isn't particularly odd. But for one of those events to land on the exact same day that AWS's storage services bites the dust and takes a huge chunk of the internet down with it? Now that's some serious bad luck.

Amazon's AWSome Day conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, started like any other, with speakers and tutorials and lots and lots of bragging about how extremely reliable and sturdy Amazon's internet services are. Then, as though AWS had made a deal with the devil and beelzebub had finally returned to claim its life, everything fell apart. AWS's Simple Storage Service (S3) bit the dust, sending countless sites into endless reloads and blank pages, and as of this writing the company is still trying to hammer out the kinks.

Here's the latest from Amazon:

Update at 12:52 PM PST: We are seeing recovery for S3 object retrievals, listing and deletions. We continue to work on recovery for adding new objects to S3 and expect to start seeing improved error rates within the hour.

Update at 11:35 AM PST: We have now repaired the ability to update the service health dashboard. The service updates are below. We continue to experience high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1, which is impacting various AWS services. We are working hard at repairing S3, believe we understand root cause, and are working on implementing what we believe will remediate the issue.

As you can imagine, the unfortunate timing has put quite the damper on the AWSome day event. One video, captured by an audience member during a presentation utilizing the S3 service, perfectly captures the mood:

"Awkward" doesn't even begin to describe it.


Colon cancer rates rise among Gen X, millennials: study
Tue, 28 Feb 2017 11:32:59 -0500
Rates of colon and rectal cancer are rising sharply among young and middle-aged adults in the United States but doctors have yet to pinpoint why, researchers said Tuesday. The report in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that Generation X and millennials face anywhere from twice to four times the risk of colon and rectal cancer as their baby boomer counterparts. Experts say colon and rectal cancer can be inherited and can also be influenced by the high-fat, low fiber diets that are common in the Western world.


Iraqi forces seize Mosul bridge as thousands of civilians flee
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 14:28:25 -0500
By Stephen Kalin and Isabel Coles SOUTH OF MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraqi forces seized a damaged Mosul bridge on Monday which could link up their units on either side of the Tigris river, as thousands of civilians fled the fighting for Islamic State's remaining stronghold in the west of the city. U.S.-backed army and police units advanced through populated western districts, fighting tough street battles, and announced they had captured Mosul's southernmost bridge. Once repaired, the bridge could help bring reinforcements and supplies from the eastern side, piling pressure on the militants dug in the western side among 750,000 civilians.


A volcano just erupted in Europe and the footage is amazing
Tue, 28 Feb 2017 17:17:48 -0500
Red-hot, sparkling lava is shooting into the sky in eastern Sicily. Italy's Mount Etna volcano first became active on Jan. 23 and has experienced a series of eruptions ever since. The latest lava-spewing event began on Monday evening. SEE ALSO: India's only active volcano is back from the dead after 150 years In the video below, posted by Storyful, orange explosions of lava are seen spewing from the southeast crater. Residents in the nearby cities of Catania and Toarmina could see the lava show in the distance. Authorities reported no dangers to communities along the mountain’s slopes, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. At 10,900 feet high, Mount Etna is Europe's largest active volcano. The "stratavolcano" has a conical shape and is made from many layers of hardened lava, tephra, pumice and volcanic ash.  This Sicilian landmark also has one of the world's longest documented records of historical eruptions, dating back to at least 1,500 B.C.E. Smaller bursts have occurred regularly in recent years, though the last major event was in 1992. Plumes of smoke and ash erupt from Mount Etna on Oct. 30, 2002. Image: ISS/NASA/Getty Images During that eruption, as lava threatened to overtake a Sicilian village, U.S. marines lent a hand during the aptly named Operation Volcano Buster. A team flew helicopters over Etna and dropped concrete blocks at the edge of the lava tunnel to plug the hole.  The marines apparently didn't sweat it. "Everything is easier when no one is shooting at you," Comdr. John Carpenter of the Navy told the New York Times from Sicily in 1992.  Luckily, no soldiers were needed this time around.  BONUS: Exploring volcanoes with robots: a day in the life of Carolyn Parcheta


White House defends mission after slain SEAL’s father questions raid
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 15:23:27 -0500
The White House responded Monday to the father of the U.S. Navy SEAL killed last month in a raid in Yemen, defending an operation it says produced valuable intelligence that will ultimately save American lives. William Owens’ 36-year-old son, Ryan, and a number of civilians were killed in the Jan. 28 mission — the first such counterterrorist operation approved by President Trump. “I can’t possibly imagine what he’s going through in terms of the loss of a son,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday at his daily press briefing.
