Holidaymakers' fury as British Airways' computer check-in breaks down for the FOURTH time in a month

It is also the fourth BA systems failure in a month, with similar problems on June 19, July 7 and again on July 13.

One BA source told The Sun that the new IT system could cause a 'summer of holiday chaos'.

The source added: 'The system isn't robust enough for an airport like Heathrow. It's a nightmare'.

Passengers arriving at Heathrow yesterday are confronted with new signs, that say: 'We are currently upgrading our check-in system and with more than 700 flights a day, it's a big change for us. We would like to apologise in advance if it takes longer than usual to drop your bag today.'

Phillip Schofield was among several people who poured scorn on the message, saying: 'What are you upgrading too(sic)? Windows 2.1?!!!'

Other passengers said it was 'mayhem' and said the flashy Terminal 5 'is starting to resemble a 3rd World country domestic airport.'

WATCH: CNN's Don Lemon Cuts Off Sheriff David Clarke For Speaking Too Much Truth

CNN's Don Lemon threw a fit and cut to commercial after Sheriff David Clarke said the media narrative blacks are being targeted by "racist" police is a total lie.

Speaking on Lemon's show yesterday, Sheriff Clarke asked Lemon, "When the tragedies happened in Louisiana and Minnesota, you know that twenty one black people were murdered [in black on black crime] across the United States? Was there any reporting on that?"

Lemon responded by asking him to "keep the volume down" in the name of "civility," then asked his producers to cut to commercial after Clarke told Lemon he "wished he had that message of civility for these purveyors of hate" in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Twelve Israelis Arrested By FBI, Sentenced for Conning & Bilking Elderly Victims Out of Their Life Savings

AVI AYACHE and YARON BAR, two leaders of an Israeli lottery fraud ring, were sentenced today to 13 years and 12 years in prison, respectively, on mail and wire fraud charges. All 12 members of the ring who were charged in this case have pleaded guilty. "Qualifiers" called the victims and falsely told the victims they had won a substantial cash prize, and asked them about their assets. They told the victims that to obtain the prize, they had to pay several thousands of dollars in fees and taxes. Victims who complied were typically contacted again by Shooters and induced to send additional funds, amounting to tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars. In reality, there was no lottery prize and the victims were ultimately bilked out of an estimated total of more than $8 million. The defendants even sent shipments of flowers and gift baskets to various victims in the United States in order to "congratulate" them on their purported lottery winnings.

L.A. has 46,874 people who are homeless. If we're not smart, we'll have 250,000 more

Tents in the Arroyo, sleeping bags on the beach, RVs parked on our boulevards. Heartbreaking visual manifestations of Los Angeles’ homelessness crisis are everywhere. The recent homeless count found that 46,874 people in Los Angeles County experience homelessness every night. As shocking as that number is, imagine for a moment that lined up behind each of those unsheltered human beings are five more. That’s roughly how many more Angelenos are at high risk of imminent homelessness...Because of our housing shortage, rents have gone up 28% since 2000. Over the same period, renters’ median incomes fell 8%. The result is an untenable situation: More than 250,000 households in Los Angeles pay 90% or more of their income on rent. These families are just one illness, one eviction, one car accident, or one lost job away from homelessness.

President Of The L.A. Police Protective League: Obama "Makes Me Sick"

Asked about the recent string of police shootings, the President Of The Los Angeles Police Protective League spoke out on a local TV news broadcast. Referring to President Obama's speech following the Baton Rouge shootings, Craig Lally said "it makes me sick!" He continued with a comical Freudian slip, "where's the leaders across this company, across the country?" He continues, "I wanna know what government is doing to protect cops! The fear is that we will become too militaristic. Well guess what? We need that stuff! The anchor then shows a video that the alleged Baton Rouge killer made prior to the shooting where he says protests won't help, and that "the alpha ones, we know what its gonna take" to stop police abuse. Interestingly, the black man also decries the fact, as he puts it, that when Europeans kill their oppressors, they're heroes, but when blacks do it, they're bad.

We've Entered an Era of Rising Instability and Uncertainty

And there you have our future, visible in the 13th, 16th and 18th century price-revolution waves which preceded ours. That we have entered an era of rising instability and uncertainty is self-evident.There will always be areas of instability in any era, but instability and uncertainty are now the norm globally. There is a template for global instability, one that has been repeated throughout history. Historian David Hackett Fischer described the dynamics that generate periods of rising instability in his book The Great Wave: Price Revolutions and the Rhythm of History (sent to me a number of years ago by correspondent Cheryl A.)

Justice department 'uses aged computer system to frustrate Foia requests'

A new lawsuit alleges that the US Department of Justice (DoJ) intentionally conducts inadequate searches of its records using a decades-old computer system when queried by citizens looking for records that should be available to the public.

Freedom of Information Act (Foia) researcher Ryan Shapiro alleges “failure by design” in the DoJ’s protocols for responding to public requests. The Foia law states that agencies must “make reasonable efforts to search for the records in electronic form or format”.

In an effort to demonstrate that the DoJ does not comply with this provision, Shapiro requested records of his own requests and ran up against the same roadblocks that stymied his progress in previous inquiries. A judge ruled in January that the FBI had acted in a manner “fundamentally at odds with the statute”.
