Woman Not Allowed Through Security Because Of No Female TSA Agents

http://myfox8.com

A Denver woman claims she couldn’t board a flight from Wyoming to Denver because of her gender. She said she checked in and arrived at security about 35 minutes before the scheduled departure of her United flight. “They asked if I was on the flight to Denver, I said yes, they said that they couldn`t screen me because they sent all the female TSA agents home,” Winning said. A female agent was necessary because of the new security pat-downs. Winning missed her flight and wound up renting a car for $165 and driving the roughly 350 miles back to Denver.

Why you can't take a cruise ship between 2 American cities

http://reason.com

The Passenger Vessel Services Act of 1886 (PVSA) effectively bars cruise ships from sailing between American cities. The PVSA forces cruiseships going from one US city to another to either stop at what is called a "far foreign port" (ie., outside of North America), or to stop at a foreign port within North America before returning to the American port of embarkation. Thus, a cruise ship cannot start in Los Angeles and end in San Francisco unless it stops in Tokyo or Lima first.

Gov’t Asks FAA Safety Inspectors for a Big No-Interest Loan

http://www.credit.com

The last continuing resolution expired Tuesday. With that expiration, the F.A.A. lost its ability to charge the 7.5% tax on airline tickets, which funds most of the agency’s functions. That means the agency is losing $200 million a week, according to the American Association of Airport Executives, money that is normally used to pay safety inspectors and improve airport facilities.

The agency also lost its ability to write checks or pay its credit card bills. Which leaves the inspectors to pay their own expenses.

Cruise passengers tell of seven-hour security 'revenge' nightmare

http://www.telegraph.co.uk

It was billed as a chance to taste the “glitz and glamour” of Hollywood or enjoy VIP treatment in some of the most exclusive shopping areas in the world. But when a group of 2,000 elderly British cruise ship passengers docked at Los Angeles for a short stop-off during a five-star cruise around America it was, in the words of one of them, more like arriving at Guantanamo Bay.

Mississippi Passes Bill To Create Uninsured Motorist Database

http://picayuneitem.com

Under the legislation, officers could use a database to check the insurance status of a motorist who’s pulled over for a primary offense. The agency would also run periodic computerized, random checks on registered license plates.

The bill would allow employees with county tax collector’s offices to check the status when motorists come in to buy car tags. If the motorist doesn’t have insurance, the tag won’t be issued. Simpson said the problem is that the bill doesn’t require the tax collector’s office verify insurance.

African Farmers Losing Land to Investors

http://www.nytimes.com

"Organizations like the United Nations & the World Bank say the practice...could help feed the growing global population by introducing large-scale commercial farming to places without it. But others condemn the deals as neocolonial land grabs that destroy villages, uproot tens of thousands of farmers and create a volatile mass of landless poor. Making matters worse...much of the food is bound for wealthier nations."
