SAN FRANCISCO — The C.I.A. developed tools to spy on Mac computers by injecting software into the chips that control the computers’ fundamental operations, according to the latest cache of classified government documents published on Thursday by WikiLeaks.

Apple said in a statement Thursday evening that its preliminary assessment of the leaked information indicated that the Mac vulnerabilities described in the disclosure were previously fixed in all Macs launched after 2013.

However, the documents also indicated that the Central Intelligence Agency was developing a new version of one tool last year to work with current software.

No 2014 world Cup, No Gold Cup, No confederation no nothing after 4 years. We have young talent, Bobbie Woods scored three goals in three international appearance last night yet he doesn’t start over Josie who has done nothing. Woods scored again last night you can also include Danny Williams, Jordan Morris but Dr Jekel and Mr. Klinsman refuses to play them. A couple other MLS players are not on the squad because of conflict with Dr Jeckel and Mr Hyde. You must bring these players into games like this and not wait. He refuses to do this because of his power hungry ego and that is a faul that is undermining our program. He has insulted our nation or people with his remarks last night. It is time for him to go AND Suni Gulatti who hired him they both have et our soccer program back 2 decades. Our media has to be tough and not let this guy get away with that type of insults.

Soccer Talk By Paul Gardner
Even world-class personalities — maybe especially them — need to be challenged and questioned. Klinsmann is allowed to do what he likes. In a disgraceful display of personal vindictiveness he was, last year, allowed to leave the USA’s best player, Landon Donovan, off the World Cup team. He is allowed to bring in his pal Andi Herzog to coach the Olympic team, a job that should have been given to an American. And he is allowed to scour the world for players with tenuous claims to citizenship, the passport Americans, and to use them instead of developing home-grown American talent.

What exactly is a player with tenuous claims to citizenship, the passport Americans?
Here Paul Gardner is just being a little bit racist. After all what is an American? Is he just someone born in the United States of America or could he have been born in Jamaica by the union of two born in the US of A? Or could this Jamaica born child by Jamaican parents become an American by choice by the process of Naturalization?Which of the three choices is not an American, Paul?
So to use these “un -Americans instead of developing home-grown American talent player is a big bonobo!

But I do agree Jürgen Klinsmann is not the right fit for the national team of the United States of America. E.o.s. 10112015@1118pm

Slam, slam, slam them cart doors! — November 20, 2013

Slam, slam, slam them cart doors!

Slam, slam, slam them cart doors!

37 minutes after take-off a cute blonde with a short pony tail is finally pulling the beverage cart up the inclined aisle. I heard her banging the carts open and shut so many times that I think catering needs to set them better. She has an air of Pink, the sexy singer. She smiles comfortably. Maybe the guys are flirting with her. Maybe not, because she smiles at the women as well while asking if they wish to purchase, [37,000. 2:15 to touchdown] food. Today they’re serving Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen loaded wraps with a side of mashed potatoes and plenty of Sierra Mist.

Sexy Pink is married. I order a Baileys on the rocks and a can of Pringles. She also offers me peanuts. I compliment her for her beautiful wedding ring and her beauty. She’s a little bashful. [Mujeres Lindas by Vincente Fernandez, one of my mom’s favorite songs is playing] I notice Sexy Beauty  talking to a woman two rows in front.

Time to read Howard’s book And The Devil Will Drag You Under by Jack L. Chalker.

So far two jewels have been recovered. The Earth is still in peril of being hit by an asteroid. I’m beginning to think this devil is more dangerous than being made extinct by a big rock that will hit them in 2 days.

I get up to walk the dog. It’s occupied by the lady who also made the 2:01 flight back to LaGuardia International Airport. We were both confirmed for the 4:30 flight.  Sexy Pink is seated with her left leg in the aisle and her right leg facing parallel to our flight path. She adjusts her dress to try to cover her knees. It’s no use, I’ve already tried to not look that far down, while talking to her about 40 Thieves, a solitaire card game on her small iPad.  I greet the lady as she exits the bathroom which is to the right of the galley if you’re facing backwards. We met by the bridge as we entered the aircraft. I say hello and say good-bye to Sexy Pink, closing the door and feeling bad that she was still talking to me as I was closing it.

Another beauty, wearing a purple dress, high heeled boots, tall and well proportioned gets up to go to the bathroom. She returns from the bathroom swinging her hips up and down and after reaching her seat she turns back walking in my direction, to take a picture of her male colleague who is out cold. She leans back into my seat putting her hips an inch by my nose. I look at her great hips because I wanted to know what she was going to do with her cell phone. She apologizes for encroaching my space. I didn’t mind the view she gave me of her landscape.

Another woman heads to the bathroom. She’s wearing a comfortable ensemble. Sweats pants and pullover. [This is the End has finished playing. Now,  Compay Segundo…Llego a Puerto.]
