Reuters: Cyber threats prompt return of radio for ship navigation

The risk of cyber attacks targeting ships' satellite navigation is pushing nations to delve back through history and develop back-up systems with roots in World War Two radio technology. Ships use GPS (Global Positioning System) and other similar devices that rely on sending and receiving satellite signals, which many experts say are vulnerable to jamming by hackers. About 90% of world trade is transported by sea and the stakes are high in increasingly crowded shipping lanes. Unlike aircraft, ships lack a back-up navigation system and if their GPS ceases to function, they risk running aground or colliding with other vessels.

On Saturday, two U.S. Air Force B-1B bombers, under the command of U.S. Pacific Air Forces, joined counterparts from the South Korean and Japanese air forces in sequenced bilateral missions. According to the Pentagon, the U.S. bombers took off from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, then flew to Japanese airspace, where they were joined by two Koku Jieitai (Japan Air Self Defense Force) F-2 fighter jets. The B-1s then flew over the Korean Peninsula, where they were joined by four F-15 fighter jets from the South Korean air force. The B-1s then performed a low-pass over Osan Air Base, South Korea, before leaving South Korean airspace and returning to Guam. A single B-1B can carry 125,000 pounds of ordnance combined, internal and externally mounted, with both conventional and nuclear capabilities. ~ @PACAF

Rex Murphy - National Post: Canada 150 fell flat
because national abasement trumped gratitude

Rex: "We are also in an era where celebration has adopted a peculiar mode: that of the confession of sins not our own. The form has become too familiar. The preacher of the day puts on a mantle of showy humility and soulfully takes on the “responsibility” for all the dim deeds of our past. He chants the litany of past wrongs, and turns his affluent, virtue-ripe eyes to the derelictions and cruelties of the unenlightened generations that went under the Earth without an iPhone. But to view the past as exemplary, to see its actors in the round as men and women subject to the codes of their day, is to invite a different kind of comparison. In the days before affluence and technology, was it perhaps more difficult to live those virtues that come so easily to us? Should we not partner gratitude with judgment when it comes to our common past and those who lived it?"

The continent spans 1.9 million square miles but 94% of it is under the Pacific. It is about two-thirds the size of Australia.

Science News: Latest theory: Half of the Milky Way comes from other galaxies

We’re all made up of matter from galaxies all over the Universe, just like the rest of the Milky Way, theorizes a new study. Astrophysicists from Northwestern University say that up to half of the matter in our Milky Way galaxy was actually blown here on intergalactic winds from galaxies far, far away. The research team used supercomputer simulations to come up with this new and unexpected method for how galaxies acquire their matter. Although intergalactic winds blow at several hundred kilometres a second, it would still takes several billion years for matter to move through the vast Universe, because different galaxies are so far away from each other. ~ Forbes

Whig-Standard: Federal Govt urged to stop high wakes among high-water Thousand Islands

Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands has urged the federal government for emergency measures to restrict boaters' wakes on the St. Lawrence River. Councillor Jeff Lackie wants the Ministry of Transport to impose temporary restricted-wake laws on the river to protect property owners being hammered by record-high water levels in the St. Lawrence. Lackie requests the ministry restrict wakes to no higher than 15 inches and that it apply to boats within 200 metres of shore. The requested measure would last until the end of this year or until the river recedes 15 inches, whichever comes first, he said. Lackie said the 200-metre restriction is meant to mirror a similar law on the United States' side of the river that limits boat wakes within 600 feet from shore.

The $44.3B House measure pays for a broad array of federal security programs, including aviation security, border and immigration enforcement, customs, cyberterrorism protection, drug smuggling prevention and natural disaster response. The legislation includes $1.6B for a "physical barrier construction along the U.S. southern border." The move will appease Trump voters, but will likely set up a spending showdown with minority Democrats, who have pledged to block spending legislation that funds the wall. The bill includes funding increases aimed at enhancing border security, including $100M to hire 500 new border patrol agents and $106M for new aircraft technology for use along the border. ~ Torres

"We must stand united against these shared enemies to strip them of their territory, their funding, their networks, and any form of ideological support," Trump said to the Polish people, whose government has taken a firm stance against accepting Syrian refugees. "While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be closed to terrorism and extremism." Trump added, "We cannot accept those who reject our values, and who use hatred to justify violence against the innocent."

David M. Shribman - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: A good neighbour among nations; The long, undefended U.S.-Canadian border reflects a deep history of shared values

When the United States celebrated its 150th birthday, Calvin Coolidge was President, Al Capone's gangsters were running wild in Chicago, NBC was just being formed and Gene Tunney was girding to defeat Jack Dempsey. Generally, it was a quiet, contented country, not all that important in world affairs, not all that worried about war or depression. This coming Saturday, Canada turns 150 in a different world, more quiet and contented than its neighbor to the South, about as influential in world affairs as the United States was in 1926, indeed very much like America was then: on the rise, admired globally, a little self-conscious, but overall a relatively uncontroversial force for good worldwide. Of course, Canada's history is as old as the United States, also originating from English colonies -- ones that didn't revolt -- and drawing the majority of its original English-speaking settlers from those who remained loyal to the British Crown in the face of the American Revolution.
