>U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), along with 123 co-sponsors, today introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2015 to prohibit the sale, transfer, production, and importation of new military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines that have become the firearm of choice for many mass shooters in the United States. Cicilline’s legislation also includes new safeguards on the sale or transfer of assault weapons already in circulation.

>HIGHLIGHTS - Annual news conference of Russia's Vladimir Putin

"This doesn't put any significant (pressure) on the budget ... It's hard to imagine better training. We can conduct training for quite a long time there without significant damage to our budget."

"We will carry out air strikes and support Syrian army offensives for as long as the Syrian army carries them out."

"Russia's (Syria) plan, in principle, broadly coincides with the view put forward by the United States. That is joint work on a constitution, creation of oversight mechanisms for a future democratic election, the election itself, and recognition of its results."

"I'm not sure if we need (a permanent) base there. This is quite significant infrastructure, it needs money to be invested."

"We believe that only the Syrian people can decide who should govern them ... We support the initiative of the United States about the U.N. resolution."

The World Bank has approved a $1.5 billion loan to support an Indian government program to improve sanitation by 2019.

The Clean India Mission "aims to end open defecation, achieve open defecation free communities, and improve the management of liquid and solid waste" by providing toilets to rural areas.

"In rural India, three out of five people suffer the indignity of defecating in the open," the World Bank said in a statement Wednesday. "Girls and women have to venture out before dawn or after dark leaving them vulnerable to harassment."

The project "will result in significant health benefits for the poor and vulnerable, especially those living in rural areas,” said Ohno Ruhl, World Bank country director for India.

The funds will also be used to support India's Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.

The World Bank says one in every 10 deaths in India is linked to poor sanitation.

>LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICES have reported “20 victims” in an ongoing active shooter situation near a social services centre that serves people with disabilities, in the California city of San Bernardino.


Looks like they are wearing body armour and were outside some social services building for disabled people. I'd take some of that with a grain of salt as I saw early reports of it outside a planned parenthood building despite it being a mile and a bit away.

The armour and 3 person minimum size could suggest a terrorist angle though, domestic or otherwise.

>About a third of rebel groups in Syria - some 100,000 fighters - share the ideology of so-called Islamic State (IS), new research suggests.

>The report, due to be published on Monday, says the greatest danger to the international community are groups who share the IS ideology but are currently being ignored - they number about 100,000 fighters.

>Current Western efforts to define "moderate" and "extremist" rebels are bound to fail, because the groups themselves rarely make the distinction, the centre says.

>Some 60% of Syria's major rebel groups are Islamist extremists, and many of the groups share the same aims, the study finds.

>Fewer than a quarter of the rebels surveyed were not ideological, and many were willing to fight alongside extremists and would probably accept an Islamist political settlement to the civil war.

>And even if IS is defeated, dispersed fighters and other extremists could attack targets outside Syria under a rallying cry that "the West destroyed the Caliphate", the centre warns.

Political issues, not personal ones. I'll explain it.

>Well at least you indirectly admit that this "culture", dependent on oil but collectively incapable to make an internal combustion engine, would just die off without western aid.
Well, strictly said, any nation or community would suffer from isolation, not just this one. But as I said, the problem comes not from the religion itself, but from certain policies.

What I'm referring to is not the "Islamists" in general but the groups of radicals who present real challenge to international security - nationalists (obviously Islamic ones) from such countries as Turkey, Pakistan, Palestine and Saudi Arabia. They are the real backbone of all this problem, not some mythical "international conspiracy". They are aggressive, xenophobic, short-sighted, and overall very useful as a cannon fodder. This is the reason US and then NATO started to mess with them, this is the reason why the situation turned out like that, this is the reason why NATO should stop supporting them and ... at least help to maintain international security. Together with everyone else.

Well at least now somebody admits that IS plays only minor role in this conflict and mostly tries to make use of territories it already gained (or rather received from someone).

And as a merciless doublepost... this is why I wish the military was more like the fire service.

The denver drill is one such example. A denver drill is a pseudo-confined space recovery of a downed firefighter. You have a shoulder width space and a window that's like 5' off the ground... It's a team effort, 2 firefighters to recover one firefighter... but guess what. Your dummy is the biggest guy on the team, or your Rescue Rick, whichever is bigger/heavier.

Below grade rescues (floor collapse, rescue someone below from the floor above) who's the dummy... biggest guy.

yes, you can hurrdurr lulz at "who's the dummy, oh it's BTDT because he's the biggest mf'er in the department"

Casualty drags/rescues... biggest person on the training ground, or the next biggest if it was me doing the rescuing.

The team has to function and be able to do everything. The hoses weigh what they weigh. The stairs are there. The line pressure is the line pressure you need for firefighting.

There's techniques for being able to mitigate things like nozzle reaction, etc, like where I can just stand up or take a knee with a 3" line and a smoothbore, a lighter/smaller individual does a coil and sits on it or else stays low... or you team up with one backing up the other.

It's a set standard. You can chop the roof, haul the shit, climb the ladders, haul the hoses, work the nozzles. There's zero differentiation between tits or dicks other than the jabs and jokes being convoluted depending upon birth-issued hardware. Those that can't cut it, get cut. Even at the paid-on-call department I was at, which was in effect a volunteer department since you didn't HAVE to show if you didn't want to.

>The right-wing National Front party will not control any regions in France. Despite its strong showing in the first round of elections, in which it earned more than 40 percent of the vote in the densely populated regions of Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardy in the north and Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur in the south, the nationalist party failed to win any districts in the second round of voting Dec. 13. However, the party led by Marine Le Pen will continue to be a key political player in the months ahead of the 2017 French presidential election.

>In many ways, the results of the Dec. 13 elections are not surprising. France's electoral system is explicitly designed to prevent extremist parties from accessing power, and it was this that prevented the National Front from winning regions in the runoff vote. In this case, France's ruling Socialist party decided not to participate in the runoff vote in those regions where it did not have a serious chance of winning, hoping that voters would choose the center-right The Republicans party over the National Front. This is exactly what happened, and the National Front saw only a small increase in popular support between the first and the second round. As Stratfor wrote after the first round, many voters who supported moderate forces in the first round will probably support other parties to keep the National Front from winning again.

>In other words, most people who wanted to vote for the National Front did so in the first round, but only a small number of additional voters supported the party in the second round. In addition, there was a higher voter turnout in the second round, which suggests that many voters who did not participate in the first round made the conscious decision to vote in the second to prevent the National Front from winning.

>The party had a similar problem in the presidential elections of 2002, when party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen surprisingly made it to the runoff election but failed to win enough new support between the first and the second rounds to win. While Jean-Marie’s daughter Marine has considerably improved the party's image, a large sector of the electorate still opposes the National Front, denying the party votes necessary for electoral victories. Of course, the National Front's popularity has grown since the beginning of the eurozone and refugee crises. Still, the party is relatively isolated politically and is finding it difficult to form the party alliances it needs to access power, particularly in the upcoming presidential election.

Ukraine says it will suspend trade with Crimea by mid-January.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said in televised comments Wednesday the ban will begin in 30 days and will affect everything but humanitarian aid.

The prime minister added there was no decision as to whether Ukraine would supply electricity to Ukraine.

"As far as electricity is concerned, these supplies can be provided only based on a decision by the National Security and Defense Council," Yatsenyuk said.

Crimea, which has a population of about two million people, depends almost entirely on Ukraine for its power and water supplies.

On December 8, Ukraine partially restored power to Crimea after a series of explosions damaged high voltage lines supplying electricity to the peninsula.

Crimea's Russia-backed leaders and Moscow claimed that Ukraine's Western-backed leadership was responsible for bringing down the power lines - an allegation Kyiv has repeatedly denied.

The 2014 annexation of Crimea by Russia plunged relations between Kyiv and Moscow into a crisis deepened by a rebellion by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

MODESTO, Calif. -- A Modesto pastor is dead after being shot during a gun safety class, CBS Sacramento reports.

Tom Smith, a family pastor who also helped with church security, was shot by his own gun safety instructor.

Modesto Police say they were acting out a scenario when a loaded gun the instructor was holding accidentally went off. They say they gun fired at the end of class after the instructor put a mock gun down and picked up his real loaded gun.

Police say so far it's unclear if the instructor believed he was using the mock gun he had been using to teach the class.

The shooting incident comes at a time when church members in California are training to carry concealed weapons in response to recent mass shootings like those at San Bernardino and at A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Senate Armed Services Committee has asked for copies of Defense Secretary Ash Carter's personal emails after Carter acknowledged he had used a personal email account earlier this year.

“With all the public attention surrounding the improper use of personal email by other Administration officials, it is hard to believe that Secretary Carter would exercise the same error in judgment," Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican and committee chairman, said in a statement.. "The Senate Armed Services Committee has requested copies of the emails and will be conducting a review to ensure that sensitive information was not compromised.”

In a briefing in Irbil, Iraq, Carter said using the personal email was a mistake.

"This is a — a mistake I made with respect to email; entirely my mistake; entirely on me," Carter said. "First of all, let me begin by saying, in fact as secretary of Defense, I don't use email very much. I certainly don't use it for classified information, and any work-related email is preserved, as is required.

"Someone in my position and the sensitivities about the position should have known better," he said. "And there were plenty of people during the time that you're taking office and so forth who explain to you what the rules are about email. So this is — it's not like I didn't have the opportunity to understand what the right thing to do is. I didn't do the right thing. This is entirely on me."
