After a security review ordered by Director Katherine Archuleta found a vulnerability in the system, OPM said it would take e-QIP offline for 4-6 weeks until security can be enhanced.

  • 27/50   AC/DC is putting its records on Spotify, Rdio, and Apple Music
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Following in the footsteps of young trendsetters Metallica, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin, AC/DC is finally bringing its music to streaming services. The New York Times reports that the band is set to put its music on subscription services such as Spotify, Rdio, and Apple Music as soon as this Tuesday, having held out longer than most of its ageing rock contemporaries from making its music available digitally. The band, which has sold 72 million records in the United States according to the RIAA, only made the decision to put its catalog on iTunes in 2012. Previously, its members had argued that the band's albums should be heard in full, rather than broken up into chunks available to purchase or stream individually.

    By Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The failure of a SpaceX rocket over Florida on Sunday should not lead U.S. officials back to Russia to look for a rocket engine that can get military equipment into space, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain said on Monday. "This mishap in no way diminishes the urgency of ridding ourselves of the Russian RD-180 rocket engine," McCain said in a statement. The United States has placed tough constraints on new deliveries of the Russian-made engines for U.S. military projects, such as launching satellites into space.

    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court on Monday found that a lethal injection drug used by Oklahoma does not violate the U.S. Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment, a ruling that provoked a caustic debate among the justices about the death penalty in America. The 5-4 ruling, with the court's five conservatives in the majority, prompted liberal Justices Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg to say for the first time they believe capital punishment as currently practiced may be unconstitutional. The decision was a defeat for death penalty foes and for the three death row inmates who challenged the use of a sedative called midazolam as part of Oklahoma's lethal injection process, saying it cannot achieve the level of unconsciousness required for surgery, making it unsuitable for executions.

John McManus, a prominent University of Miami marine biologist who has worked with Philippine scientists to research the South China Sea, told fellow experts this month that China's reclamation "constitutes the most rapid rate of permanent loss of coral reef area in human history".
