Asteroid nearly gave Earth a new feature, two days after its discovery

On Saturday, the Catalina Sky Survey spotted a near-Earth asteroid of respectable heft – and today, it passed between us and the Moon.

2017 AG13 (the Minor Planet Center, MPC, entry is here) is about the size of a 10-storey building. Its velocity to Earth is 11 kilometres per second.

It passed at 0.53 Lunar distance, or 203,519 km away (nearly 126,500 miles away) – a handy buffer, but still in the “low flying rocks” class of objects.

The size estimate comes with a fairly large error bar: the MPC says it's between 11 metres and 34 metres wide, putting it roughly the same size as the rock that caused havoc in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in 2013.

England’s Booming Population Spells Commuter Hell For Drivers

England’s rapidly increasing population will mean drivers in 2030 will lose an extra 12 hours a year in traffic jams, a study predicts.

The nation’s already busy roads will be even more congested in 13 years’ time, thanks to a population boom which will see Britain overtake France as the second most populated country in Europe, according to the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

What do you call a firm that leaves customer financials unencrypted on a hard drive? RSA

An insurance business has been fined £150,000 for its lax security practices after a hard drive containing customers' unencrypted information was stolen.

The hard drive disappeared from the offices of Royal & Sun Alliance insurance (ironically it prefers the abbreviation RSA) back in 2015.

It contained 59,592 customers' names, addresses and bank account details including account numbers and sort codes, and additionally held “limited credit card details of 20,000 customers, although CVC numbers and expiry dates were not affected.”

Dan Rather on David Letterman Show, 9/17/01 Discusses Dancing Israelis: "We've Never Dealt With These Kind Of Hateful, To The Core, EVIL PEOPLE"

Dan Rather was a guest on CBS 'Late Nite With David Letterman' show on September 17: "there's several witnesses who say this happened. They got on the roof of the building- to look across. They knew what was going to happen. They were waiting for it to happen. And when it happened, they celebrated. They, they jumped for joy. To see this happen, it was a great triumph. IT'S INCONEIVABLE TO ME AND TO YOU, BUT DAVID, THIS IS WHAT we have to understand as a country. We're not dealing with the kind of things in any war we've ever fought before. Because we've never dealt with these kind of hateful, to the core, EVIL PEOPLE."

Because I'm bad, I'm bad, Shamoon: PC wiper tried to shut down Saudi snapshot defences

Security researchers have identified a second wave of Shamoon 2 PC-wiping attacks against a further target in Saudi Arabia last November. The new research shows hackers upping the ante and developing more sophisticated, multi-stage attacks.

The original Shamoon attack hobbled the network of Saudi Aramco in 2012.

Similar destructive attacks against a civil aviation agency and other Gulf state organisations in Saudi Arabia re-emerged in November 2016.

United States intel officials blame Iran for the Shamoon attacks, partly on the basis of geopolitical motives as well as the nature of the attack. The technical evidence isn't conclusive either way but certainly doesn't rule out Iran as a strong suspect.

18 Major Scandals in Obama’s ‘Scandal-Free’ Presidency

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS MOUTHPIECES HAVE EMBARKED ON A BIZARRE SCHEME TO HYPNOTIZE AMERICA INTO FORGETTING THE MANY SCANDALS OF HIS PRESIDENCY.

Yo Democrats, THIS tweet about middle America from nobody Melinda Byerley is WHY you keep losing

Warning, before reading Melinda’s drivel about Middle America you may want to take a Tums.
Melinda, who until yesterday seems to have been an outspoken NOBODY, for whatever reason decided to crap all over middle America because hey, what better way to connect with people than by calling them stupid, violent, racist and misogynistic.

Screaming Protesters Kicked Out Of Sessions' Hearing: "You Can't Arrest Me, I'm White"

With opening comments barely underway, several protesters have already been escorted out of Senator Jeff Sessions' confirmation hearing.

The first interruption came from these lovely gentemen who, dressed in KKK garb, shouted "White people don't get arrested...white people own this country" as they were quickly escorted by police off the premises.

"You can't arrest me, I'm white. White people don't get arrested. What do we have to do, wait for the inauguration?"

I hereby nominate these people for the Darwin Award in 'Useful Idiocy'!

The ‘Post-Truth’ Mainstream Media

For several months, Western officials and media outlets repeated thousands of times that there were between 250,000 and 300,000 civilians trapped under Syrian and Russian bombardment in East Aleppo. Western reports rarely mentioned the Syrian government’s estimate that there were only one-third that number of civilians in the rebel-controlled enclave – nor that its estimates were solidly based on what it had found in Homs and other rebel-held areas after it restored state control.

Prediction: Goodbye Democracy, Hello Technocracy

By Patrick Wood

A tectonic-level battle could soon take place over the fundamental structure of America, and hardly anyone sees it coming. Nevertheless, I am making a bold prediction for 2017.

With the Democrat party seemingly in total upheaval after the 2016 Presidential election, it boggles the mind at how fast political fortunes can change these days. Democrats, liberals, leftist and progressives have arguably realized that the current system of things political has become impenetrable to them, and that they will not move forward by gaming the existing political machinery any longer.

Instead, watch for a new mantra: “Since Democracy* is irrefutably broken, let’s just throw it under the bus and start afresh with… Technocracy.” In other words, if you can’t get rid of Trump, then get rid of the office altogether...

Judge Who Called ‘Racist’ Defendant ‘A C**T’ Cleared Of Misconduct

A British judge who called a defendant a “bit of a c**t” during sentencing has been cleared of misconduct.

Judge Patricia Lynch QC was sentencing John Hennigan at Chelmsford Crown Court in August last year for his ninth bout of antisocial behavior in 11 years when the exchange took place.

Fifty-year-old Hennigan was in the dock when he told Lynch she was a “bit of a c**t,” to which the judge responded: “You are a bit of a c**t yourself. Being offensive to me does not help.”

The Supreme Court is raising serious doubts about Colorado's practice of not refunding court fees and other costs to people who are convicted of crimes but later exonerated.
