Schools asked if they want surveillance cameras - Toronto's public schools are being asked if they want surveillance cameras in their buildings after concerns were raised about security measures in the wake of last week's shooting death of a teenage student at C. W. Jeffreys Collegiate Institute. Donna Quan, central superintendent of safe schools at the Toronto District School Board, sent an e-mail to principals this week, asking them to respond by today. Usually schools come to the board requesting cameras, not the other way around.   (RELATED: See our Total Global Surveillance archive)

Bid to put fluoride in water - FOUR schemes for adding fluoride to tap water across Greater Manchester are being considered. Health bosses have asked United Utilities to price up four options for the highly controversial scheme to improve the region's terrible dental health. They argue adding fluoride to the water supply could help improve dental health - it strengthens tooth enamel. But some anti-fluoride campaigners claim it is potentially dangerous mass medication.   (RELATED: See our Compromised Health archive)

Two policemen on child porn charges - Two police officers have been charged with possessing indecent images of children, Scotland Yard has said. Detective Constable Graham Ferguson, 40, from the Metropolitan Police Service, is accused of two counts of possessing indecent images of children.

FBI plans a big tent for biometrics: Upgrade of fingerprint repository could permit future identifiers - Tom Cruise, watch out.

Dying Diana pic to be aired - Princes William and Harry are said to be "devastated" at a decision by Britain's Channel Four to show a picture of their dying mother. The station will screen it as part of a documentary, Diana: The Witnesses in the Tunnel, which will air in Britain on Wednesday, June 6, ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Princess's death. The picture shows Diana slumped in the back of a black Mercedes following the tragic car accident in a French underpass. It shows a doctor attempting to place an oxygen mask over her face.   (RELATED: See our popular Diana Assassination archive)

Revolt against new U.S. ID card grows - New Hampshire on Thursday joined a growing list of states to reject a controversial U.S. identification card that opponents say will cost billions of dollars to administer and present a risk to privacy. The Democratic-controlled state Senate approved legislation to prohibit the Real ID program in a 24-0 vote, and Gov. John Lynch said he would sign the bill, which passed the state House of Representatives on April 6.

We may declare an emergency to quit rights act, says Reid - Police would be able to continue questioning terrorist suspects after they had been charged under proposals to be published within weeks by John Reid. After the latest fiasco in which three terror suspects went on the run after breaching their control orders, the Home Secretary said yesterday that the Government would consider declaring that there was an emergency threat to the country, allowing it to opt out of human rights legislation, if all other options failed.

U.N. panel seeks CIA prison info - A U.N. anti-torture panel said Monday it was concerned about allegations that Poland housed CIA-run prisons for terrorist suspects, despite Warsaw's repeated denial of cooperating with the U.S. secret detention program. The U.N. Committee Against Torture urged Poland to share the details of an investigation carried out by its parliament rejecting charges of Polish participation in the secret CIA prison network.

UK Police Unviel Aerial Surveillance Drone - The UK's first police "spy drone" took to the skies today. The remote control helicopter, fitted with CCTV cameras, will be used by officers in Merseyside to track criminals and record anti-social behaviour. The drone is only a metre wide, weighs less than a bag of sugar, and can record images from a height of 500m.   (RELATED: See our Total Global Surveillance archive)

Police chief's 'Orwellian' fears - A senior police officer has said he fears the spread of CCTV cameras is leading to "an Orwellian situation".

Peer calls for babies' DNA to stored - A NORTH-East peer has triggered a furious row after calling for DNA from newborn babies to be stored on the national database. Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate, formerly Durham's senior police officer, said the move would help in the fight against crime and terrorism. But the proposal was immediately attacked as "abusing the privacy of the innocent" by the Liberal Democrats, who oppose the Government's plans to expand the database.

Chip and pin machines in your home - ONLINE shoppers could soon be required to use "chip and pin" machines in their own homes in a bid to tackle internet fraud. A number of High Street banks are already planning to send out millions of card-reading devices in the coming months for online customers wanting to transfer money from their account to a third party.

ASDA to cut food additives as health worries grow - Britain supermarket chain ASDA said on Tuesday it was removing all artificial colours and flavours from its own-label food amid growing concern about their impact on childrens' behaviour. "We know that our customers, particularly those that are mums and dads, are becoming more and more concerned about what's in the food that they buy," ASDA's food trading director Darren Blackhurst said in a statement.

Documents about Diana's death 'being withheld' - Lawyers for Mohamed Fayed, the owner of Harrods, will today claim they are being denied access to crucial documents relating to the inquests into the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Fayed. They claim that despite asking for all the records referred to in Lord Stevens's Operation Paget report into the tragedy, what they have been given so far is incomplete and with many omissions - including notes relating to Prince Charles's statement to police.   (RELATED: See our popular Diana Assassination archive)

So What Really Is In A McDonald's Chicken McNugget? - The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan is a fascinating book that details the changing eating habits of Americans. I can't recommend it highly enough. It explains how, over the last 30 years, we have become a nation that eats vast quantities of corn ­ much more so than Mexicans, the original "corn people." Most folks assume that a chicken nugget is just a piece of fried chicken, right? Wrong! Did you know, for example, that a McDonald's Chicken McNugget is 56% corn? What else is in a McDonald's Chicken McNugget?

Meacher quits labour leadership bid - Former environment minister Michael Meacher has agreed to stand aside from the Labour leadership contest in favour of fellow left-winger John McDonnell, it has been claimed. A spokesman for Mr McDonnell's campaign said Mr Meacher had confirmed when the pair met that he was going to withdraw. Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn said: "I'm delighted that John McDonnell is going to be the candidate of the Left."

US Internet snooping allowed from today: Wiretapping the net - TODAY IS the last day for US cable modem companies, DSL providers, broadband over powerline, satellite internet companies and some universities to connect the FBI friendly snooping gear demanded by law. The FCC's expanded interpretation of the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act which was passed in 1994 to help FBI eavesdroppers deal with digital telecom technology requires everyone to make their networks easier to wiretap.

Google kowtows to Thai censorship - Google, already kowtowing to the Chinese by censoring its search results in China, has now given in to the Thai government, which demanded that it pull videos from YouTube that the government said insulted the king. Previously, Google said it wouldn't give in to the demands. But now it's agreed to pull the videos. Google won't say why they've done it, but you can be sure money is at the root of it. Thailand has blocked all of YouTube, and my guess is that Google doesn't like losing the revenue. The videos in question are exceedingly mild by Western standards, but they mock the king in a variety of ways --- and mocking the king is a jailable offense in Thailand.

At the annual Business Expo at the Rhode Island Convention Center Tuesday, NBC's Jim Miklaszewski "advanced a theme garnering attention since former CIA director George J. Tenet made his public revelations last week," writes Tom Mooney for the Providence Journal.

Fingerprint biometrics eliminate password security risks - Security experts tell us to start by identifying the weakest links in our systems, and to work on improving the security of those elements to mitigate risk. For many, password authentication is the weakest link in the security infrastructure. Passwords only work if individuals use them correctly, all the time. Despite countless hours in creating guidelines, procedures and purchased safeguards, one user can still override an IT Department’s efforts by simply sharing a password. The “human” element often results in a number of common password problems.

However, he does so not just with the album's music, but also numerous accompanying multimedia-- Reznor has thrown a private concert, scattered random tracks in random locations, made websites, all above and beyond the album itself.
