Troutdale, Oregon - right outside Portland apparently. Details are just coming in, but news is reporting life flight helo on the scene so someone has to be critically injured.

Also wonderful video of the local Sheriff department putting their shiny new MRAP (well, not shiny, it's OD green and has SHERIFF plastered all over it) to wonderful use by... driving it around in the school parking lot.

>KATU photojournalist Mike Warner reported seeing a LifeFlight helicopter at the school and a large number of police officers were surrounding the building with guns drawn.

>A SWAT team and FBI agents were sent to the school.

>Large groups of students were ushered out of the school with their hands behind their heads.

>Student Kyla Bynam told KATU there was a large police presence at the school.


>Multiple agencies are responding. Close to 100 police and sheriff’s units are on scene, as well as at least 19 medical personnel and FBI. A LifeFlight helicopter landed in a nearby field.

"Temper tantrum" violence is common though, it's way more common than two gangs going at each other

If we're counting superficial wounds, or tantrum violence that gets stopped before it starts, that shit happens hourly

Basically vandalism on people

That's why no one reports on it, or didn't use to

>more like a natural disaster that we don't get

We get the reason for it only too well. People are angry, people are sick, people are hopeless. Anger leads to hatred and rage and wanting to get back at the people who made you as such because they teased you, because they beat you up, because they ignored you. Sickness makes people feel confused and see enemies everywhere. Hopelessness is just the absence of hope, hope for the future, for friends, for life and if you were so lonely and hopeless in life you may as well have some company in death.

Anti-gunners just think its because guns make people kill.

No one reported on it before because the media at the time had a smidgen of professionalism. They usually reported the news honestly and objectively, didn't push an agenda (people like Walter Winchell being the exception).

Nowadays the media dramatizes the news, pushes whatever agenda their sponsors are trying to push, distorts and muddles the facts and even outright lies.

These shootings are nothing, very few people have died and the shootings are nothing new. Take for instance the Sovereign Citizen retards in Nevada who killed two cops, how the media is jacking off to them like some 12 year old with a Hustler. you would think shit like that had never happened. Wrong.

I think the location behind this is a factor too. I mean when people hear school shooting they think Columbine or Sandy Hook, and we just had a school shooting (granted at a college), just a week ago, and a week before that we had Rodgers go on his spree, and just yesterday we had two nutters try their hand at getting the high score too.

So of course the media is going to report on a school shooting, even if it only ended up with the shooter dead.

California and seven other states have unveiled a plan to put 3.3 million electric and fuel cell vehicles on the road by 2025 — a goal that seems out of reach, based on current market trends.

Today, we're putting a foot on the pedal to get more clean cars on the road. This is real action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- California Gov. Jerry Brown
The states have set a target that 15% of their new-car sales will be zero-emission vehicles a decade from now. Such vehicles include electricity-only cars and hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles. Partial-zero-emission vehicles such as plug-in hybrids, which run both on gasoline and electricity, also can count toward part of the goal. But zero-emission sales make up only a tiny fraction of the 15 million to 16 million vehicles sold annually in the U.S.

The so-called multi-state ZEV action plan, to be released Thursday, was developed as part of a larger agreement to speed the introduction of zero-emission vehicles to fight greenhouse gas pollution.

The plan lays out a number of steps to speed consumer acceptance of the vehicles, such as giving such vehicles access to carpool lanes in multiple states and charging lower tolls on roads and bridges for such cars.

"Today, we're putting a foot on the pedal to get more clean cars on the road," said California Gov. Jerry Brown. "This is real action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

The other states that have signed the agreement are Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont. Together they constitute about a quarter of the nation's new-car sales, according to the California Air Resources Board.

There are about two dozen electric or plug-in hybrid models on the market, but almost no fuel cell cars.

Nothing against you buddy, I'm just fed up with these green websites and their clickbait. This isn't "water powered car"-tier bullshit but nowhere do they actually discuss prices and options, or even the cons.

Photovoltaic tech is getting cheaper but not quickly. Monocrystalline silicon simply can't get cheaper without a new way to produce it being discovered. Polycrystal silicon is only 10% efficient. Thinner applications of stuff like cadmium telluride are cheaper and more efficient but not by much. Meanwhile the Feds and now some states are shitting all over the proven, reliable technologies we have and pushing inferior underdeveloped ones out to market way before their time.

At the moment, solar panels make sense for entities to mitigate their energy consumption from the grid. The electrical grid at the moment is not designed to take any significant, decentralized electrical production, and modifying it to accommodate that would be a truly titanic undertaking. They're also entirely subject to weather conditions.

It's a whole lot simpler to just design/modify/retrofit buildings that don't require as much energy. Nationwide, lighting uses 12% of all our electrical production, air conditioning/cooling 11%. This means not doing retarded shit like building a glass box tower in Phoenix.

Thermal mass is a great way to reduce the temperature swings of day-night. The problem with earthen materials for walls is it's a pain to get openings large enough to get a real proper airflow. Thermal mass in the floor and in a few strategically chosen walls is the best way to go.

Adequate shading is the cheapest and most effective way to reduce the need for conditioning.
>> No. 92882 ID: 451480
super high R value insulation, proper window placement, solar window screens and blinds, leak checking, and paint color will go a long way in reducing a/c bills.

Never underestimate the value of proper design and engineering
>> No. 92962 ID: 8f9280

Tell me more of the proper design to keep a house cool in the heat of the day.

Specifically how thermal mass should work in conjuction with insulation. Like, should the south face be thermal mass or insulation? I get a slab floor will be good thermal mass, but what if i have a basement?
>> No. 92996 ID: 451480
Windows on the east and west sides of buildings are usually a bad idea.

use tile roofs, the tile adds an insulating area of air as well as shade to the actual roof and isn't dark as fuck like asphalt roof shingles so it doesn't heat up as much.

If you have a basement you will want to circulate air through it as a thermal sink

Shooting at the courthouse in GA, dude was prepared for some serious shit but stopped by the police at the front door.

A man who shot a sheriff's deputy outside a north Georgia courthouse was killed in the shootout with authorities there, Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper said. The shooter, armed with explosives and an assault rifle, apparently intended to storm the courthouse and take hostages, but was prevented from going inside by the wounded deputy, Piper said.

- Ram the front door with his truck
- Threw down home made spike strip to slow down the police
- had bomb strapped to him and threw down some smoke grenades and CS grenades
- packed with "assault rifle" (Chief of police didn't go in detail), high ammo count (they are still counting) and flex cuffs. They figure he was going to barricade and take hostages
- He had a court date today

1:30 of fire fight with police, it wasn't a lucky day for him - first deputy engaged, then deputy in the courthouse join the fight, then detention center across the street join the fight, just happen a team of SWAT was driving by and they join the fight too.

>Stingrays, also known as IMSI catchers, simulate a cellphone tower and trick nearby mobile devices into connecting with them, thereby revealing their location. A stingray can see and record a device’s unique ID number and traffic data, as well as information that points to its location. By moving a stingray around, authorities can triangulate a device’s location with greater precision than is possible using data obtained from a carrier’s fixed tower location.

A routine request in Florida for public records regarding the use of a surveillance tool known as stingray took an extraordinary turn recently when federal authorities seized the documents before police could release them.

The surprise move by the U.S. Marshals Service stunned the American Civil Liberties Union, which earlier this year filed the public records request with the Sarasota, Florida, police department for information detailing its use of the controversial surveillance tool.

The ACLU had an appointment last Tuesday to review documents pertaining to a case investigated by a Sarasota police detective. But marshals swooped in at the last minute to grab the records, claiming they belong to the U.S. Marshals Service and barring the police from releasing them.

ACLU staff attorney Nathan Freed Wessler called the move “truly extraordinary and beyond the worst transparency violations” the group has seen regarding documents detailing police use of the technology.

“This is consistent with what we’ve seen around the country with federal agencies trying to meddle with public requests for stingray information,” Wessler said, noting that federal authorities have in other cases invoked the Homeland Security Act to prevent the release of such records. “The feds are working very hard to block any release of this information to the public.”

Stingrays, also known as IMSI catchers, simulate a cellphone tower and trick nearby mobile devices into connecting with them, thereby revealing their location. A stingray can see and record a device’s unique ID number and traffic data, as well as information that points to its location. By moving a stingray around, authorities can triangulate a device’s location with greater precision than is possible using data obtained from a carrier’s fixed tower location.

The records sought by the ACLU are important because the organization has learned that a Florida police detective obtained permission to use a stingray simply by filing an application with the court under Florida’s “trap and trace” statute instead of obtaining a probable-cause warrant. Trap and trace orders generally are used to collect information from phone companies about telephone numbers received and called by a specific account. A stingray, however, can track the location of cell phones, including inside private spaces.

Congratulations, you've generalized the entire population of a chan. Good job. 2/10 you made me chuckle.

However while people here would have reservations against the ACLU, they are being dicked over in an unusually bold way. The inadvertent capture of non-target traffic and the ability to use these devices without the need for a warrant, while not necessarily a national standard, is still cause for concern. These "trap-and-trace" devices use the whole metadata angle to skirt around the fact that they are still performing an unwarranted search. If the USMS can prove that they signed a loan agreement or something similar, they could worm their way out of this. Regardless of the outcome, this will still be seen as a heavy-handed bully tactic on their part.

Now where's The Ghost of Charles Bronson when you need him; his sage Floridan legal advice should fit well here.

-The NDAA, which to me is the wheat gluten of politics
-NSA surveillance, SOPA/PIPA and net neutrality in general
-Muh police brutality on degenerates during the height of the 99% movement, also NY's heavy handed take on stop-and-frisk and free speech zones
-Several SCOTUS cases not involving 2A, including McCutcheon, Shelby, Citizens United, Montejo, Georgia v. Randolph, US v. Jones, etc. Usually involving the 4th or the 10th.
-Opposing the death penalty on principle due to lack of faith in the justice system
-Extrajudicial actions on American citizens like Gitmo, and the al-Awlaki strike
-Criminalization of marijuana and other controlled substances
-Miminum wage, taxes, and right-to-work laws

Antarctic sea ice hit 35-year record high Saturday

Antarctic sea ice has grown to a record large extent for a second straight year, baffling scientists seeking to understand why this ice is expanding rather than shrinking in a warming world.

On Saturday, the ice extent reached 19.51 million square kilometers, according to data posted on the National Snow and Ice Data Center Web site. That number bested record high levels set earlier this month and in 2012 (of 19.48 million square kilometers). Records date back to October 1978.

- The Norks then, upon finding out it wasn't downgraded enough, modified the design so it could be built in their factories

The last of the 29 Navajos who developed a code that stumped the Japanese during World War II has died.

Chester Nez, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, died Wednesday morning of kidney failure, said Judy Avila, who helped Nez write his memoirs. He was 93.

Before hundreds of men from the Navajo Nation became Code Talkers, 29 Navajos were recruited to develop the code based on the then-unwritten Navajo language. Nez was in 10th grade when he enlisted, keeping his decision a secret from his family and lying about his age, as did many others.

"It's one of the greatest parts of history that we used our own native language during World War II," Nez told The Associated Press in 2009. "We're very proud of it."

Of the 250 Navajos who showed up at Fort Defiance — then a U.S. Army base — 29 were selected to join the first all-Native American unit of Marines. They were inducted in May 1942. Nez became part of the 382nd Platoon.

Using Navajo words for red soil, war chief, clan, braided hair, beads, ant and hummingbird, for example, they came up with a glossary of more than 200 terms that later was expanded and an alphabet.

Nez has said he was concerned the code wouldn't work. At the time, few non-Navajos spoke the language. Even Navajos who did couldn't understand the code. It proved impenetrable.

The Navajos trained in radio communications were walking copies of the code. Each message read aloud by a Code Talker was immediately destroyed.
