British Prime Minister David Cameron is taken on a guided tour of the IGas shale drilling plant oil depot near Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
The UK plans to allow fracking companies to drill under people's land without their agreement, despite public opposition.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) said it will press ahead with proposals to simplify underground access for oil and gas developers despite the objection of 99 percent of respondents to a consultation.

The UK-wide plan would give companies the right to drill at depths of 300 metres or more under private land without negotiating a right of access.

The UK government argued that the current ability for people to block shale gas development under their property would lead to significant delays and that the legal process by which companies can force fracking plans through was costly, time-consuming and disproportionate.

Comment: Translation: The oil companies control the government and they have no intention of letting the public's concern for health, safety and the environment get in the way of rampant greed.

Tory MP Brooks Newmark quits ministerial position after sending 'graphic' photograph of himself over the internet

Mr Newmark has quit his role as Minister for Civil Society after being alerted to a story on his private life.
A Tory minister quit the government tonight after a newspaper reported that he had sent an explicit photograph to an undercover journalist posing as a young, female party activist.

Downing Street said that Prime Minister David Cameron had accepted the resignation of Brooks Newmark, 56, a father-of-five, from his role as Minister for Civil Society.

It followed a sting by the Sunday Mirror in which the newspaper claimed Mr Newmark had sent a 'graphic' photo of himself over the internet.

His resignation capped a difficult day for the Tories, who also suffered the defection of MP Mark Reckless to UKIP in a move which will trigger a by-election in Rochester and Strood.

Comment: Such an irony: Minister for Civil Society caught performing uncivilly.

Oklahoma workplace beheading linked to Al Qaeda, Boston Bomber's mosque

Alton Nolen AKA Jah’Keem Yisrael
Suhaib Webb, an Imam with ties to former Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, had also previously been the leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, which had been attended by Alton Nolen -- the man who on Thursday beheaded a former coworker after recently converting to Islam, Breitbart News has learned. Webb now serves as Imam of the sister organization of the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Imam Suhaib Webb has a history of ties to radicalism. FBI surveillance documents found that he was a known confidant of Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. Just two days before the September 11, 2001 attacks on America, Webb spoke at a fundraiser with Awlaki with hopes to raise funds for Atlanta-based H. Rap Brown, a man that shot and killed two police officers. The FBI documents also found that "Webb and Awlaki may be associated with the Muslim American Society," which is a group described by the Investigative Project on Terrorism as being "founded as the United States Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood."

Nolen took a picture of himself (above) September 5th, just three weeks before he brutally murdered an innocent woman, standing in front of the gates of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City.

A man fired from an Oklahoma food processing plant has decapitated one of his co-workers and attacked another one before being neutralized. The FBI was called to investigate suspect's background, who recently converted to Islam, police announced.

Soon after he was fired, the 30 yo production line employee Alton Nolen walked into the front office of the Vaughan Food processing plant in Moore, Oklahoma on Thursday, and attacked and killed an employee with a knife severing her head, according to police.

"Yes, she was beheaded," Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis confirmed to the Associated Press.

After killing Collen Hufford, Nolan stabbed a second woman, Traci Johnson whose life was saved only when Mark Vaughan, the company's top executive shot him. Vaughan is a reserve deputy with the Oklahoma County sheriff's office.

Police were called to the scene shortly after the attack began but by then the suspect was injured.

"He was also trying to kill her (Traci), too. It should be noted this off-duty deputy definitely saved Tracy's life. This was not going to stop unless he stopped it, obviously he (Mark) is a hero in this situation," Lewis told reporters.

The knife used in the attack was the same kind used by workers at the plant, said the police.

Stephen Hawking makes it clear: There is no God

The physicist explains that science now offers more convincing explanations for existence. He is therefore an atheist.

If I were a scientist, I'd stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides.

"Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife.

For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

He gave an interview to Spain's El Mundo in which he expressed his firm belief that el mundo was the work of scientifically explainable phenomena, not of a supreme being.

Hawking said: "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

"It is possible that decisions leading to further increases in gas prices will be made this year. There is even a possibility... that a single gas price will be established for commercial and individual consumers," the UNIAN news agency quoted deputy chief of national oil and gas company Naftogaz, Oleksandr Todiychuk, as saying.

Comment: Now that Ukraine's economy has been devastated by the West, the Ukrainian people will be the ones to suffer as the inevitable gas shortages and price hikes take effect.

Mississippi sued over 'hellish' conditions in for-profit prison

Lawyers say incarcerated men with severe psychiatric disorders face medical neglect, insufficient food, solitary confinement, and abuse at "special needs" facility.
Prison Fires
At the East Mississippi Correctional Facility, sometimes incarcerated people are forced to resort to starting fires to get attention from negligent staff.
Denial of food and medical care. Cells and floors soiled with blood, urine, and feces. Excessive force by prison guards. Weeks, months, and years in solitary confinement.

These are the conditions found at a "special needs" for-profit prison, the East Mississippi Correctional Facility, which is tasked by the state's department of corrections with incarcerating 1,200 people, approximately 1,000 of whom have severe psychiatric disorders, according to a legal motion filed Friday.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, American Civil Liberties Union, Law Office of Elizabeth Alexander, and Covington & Burling LLP filed the motion in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi, asking the federal court to approve a 2013 complaint as a class-action suit against the state officials in charge of the East Mississippi Correctional Facility (EMCF). They say they hope this move will help protect all of the people who are subject to the facility's "inhumane" and "torturous" conditions.

Is the U.S. Forest Service proposing rules requiring permits for photography in the wilderness?

Claim: The U.S. Forest Service is proposing new rules that would require permits for commercial filming and photography in federally designated wilderness areas.

Origins: On 25 September 2014, a new rule proposed by the U.S. Forest Service pertaining to photography and film permits sparked internet outrage. According to circulating posts about the issue, the agency would like to charge fees of up to $1,500 beforeallowing "commercial filming and photography in federally designated wilderness areas." When the proposal is finalized in November 2014, commercial photographers who do not obtain permits could face fines of up to $1,000. (Tourists and park visitors snapping photographs for personal, non-commercial use would not be affected by the proposed regulations.)

The U.S. Forest Service manages public forests, grasslands, and wilderness throughout the United States. It administers areas ranging from boat ramps in Indiana to a volcano observatory in Washington to campsites in New Hampsire, and the proposed regulations would affect over 200 million acres under Forest Service jurisdiction.

FBI says mass shootings nearly tripled in last 7 years, mostly at schools

SWAT officers patrol the Copley Square area after explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in Boston, Massachusetts April 15, 2013.
Shootings in which a gunman wounds or kills multiple people have nearly tripled in the US in recent years, according to a new FBI report. The majority of those shooting incidents have occurred at businesses or schools, the report found.

The study concentrated on 160 "active shooter incidents" between 2000 and 2013. Such incidents are defined as cases in which an attacking gunman shoots or attempts to shoot people in a populated area. The FBI excluded shootings that were gang- or drug-related.

The report found that during the first seven years involved in the study, an average of 6.4 "active shooter incidents" occurred each year. That average increased to 16.4 per year in the final seven years studied.

The largest portion of such incidents - 73 total, or 45.6 percent of all examined attacks - took place at a business, or "commercial environment," the FBI found. Just over 24 percent, or 39 incidents, occurred at schools. The rest of the attacks studied happened at other locations, including military and other government properties, residential properties, open spaces, places of worship, and health care outlets.

Street artist Mark Panzarino, 41, prepares a memorial as he writes the names of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims during the six-month anniversary of the massacre, at Union Square in New York, June 14, 2013.
All in all, the incidents yielded a total of 1,043 casualties - 486 killed and 557 wounded, not including the shooters. Researchers found these totals and other data for the report "using official police records, after action reports, and shooting commission documents as well as FBI resources and open source information."

Disintegration of society: Congressman says legislation needed to keep federal employees from watching porn at work

© Reuters/Claro Cortes IV
Viewing pornography on the job is presumably something that employees most anywhere are frowned upon for doing, in the least, but one American lawmaker says legislation is needed to keep federal workers from browsing X-rated material on the clock.

United States Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) introduced a law last week that aims to ensure something that many may already assume is against the rules when it comes to basic workplace etiquette, especially with regards to government jobs. Rep. Meadow's bill, the Eliminating Pornography from Agencies Act, would officially prohibit workers on Uncle Sam's payroll from browsing adult content on federal computer and devices.

Meadows said in a statement last week that he was provoked to push for such a law after learning that an employee at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continued to receive paychecks from the government after an internal report reviewed that the individual had watched upwards of 6 hours of pornography a day while on the job.

"It's appalling that it requires an act of Congress to ensure that federal agencies block access to these sites at work," Meadows said in a statement.

Comment: It is a sad statement to the depravity of a country where legislation must be instigated to stop what would be considered disgusting in a normal society. What is worse, it will be surprising if this legislation gets off the ground, as Washington, D.C. ranked No. 1 for the most online porn videos viewed per person in 2012.
