9/11 Panel Gives Gov't Poor Marks on ReformMembers of the 9/11 Public Discourse Project (formerly the 9/11 Commission) said the government deserves a "dismal grade for its lack of urgency in enacting strong security measures to prevent terror attacks."  Thomas Kean, a former Republican Governor (R-NJ) and former head of the 9/11 Commission, says the government's performance is "not very well."

Documents Show Katrina's Political Storm- Newly released documents show that Governor Kathleen Blanco warned the federal government before Hurricane Katrina struck, that the hurricane was expected to be of such a magnitude, that would be beyond the scope and capability of local or state resources, and that the state of Louisiana would need the federal government's help.  The day before Katrina made landfall, Blanco sent a letter to the White House which said: ""I have determined that this incident will be of such severity and magnitude that effective response will be beyond the capabilities of the state and the affected local governments and that supplementary federal assistance will be necessary."

  1. There are no security, as it is not piatrvely owned. There are police, as it is owned by the city.I later found out that this was not an isolated incident, and the police arrest about 1000 people per year there. Beforehand, I found a forum full of people talking about going freely in and out, and assumed it was kosher. This was apparently incorrect.I am a big fan of exploring urban ruins, and you need to realize that every time you do, you are entering a legal gray area that mostly depends on the whim of the owners. I can\'t say for sure one way or the other what would have happened, but it\'s safe to say they don\'t want people there, despite how beautiful it is and what a great city attraction it could be.

  4. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.

    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  9. Did not thought about this until now :)Garcinia Cambogia Extract stops the pancreas from breaking up down starch into maltose and dextrin. It also prevents the growth
    of alpha-amylase digestive enzymes in the human body. Health professionals sometimes advocate this to their subjects who are diabetes sufferers because the Garcinia Cambogia
    stops the creation of alpha-glucosidase situated in the intestines from renovating disaccharides and starches into
    sugar. Garcinia Cambogia benefits also reduces glucose and carbohydrates from changing into unwanted body fat
    by stopping the production of citrate lyase. Some doctors use Garcinia as a laxative to
    help with obstipation or other health purposes such as
    weight loss, a stress reliever, panic attack, mood
    swings and as a solution to having a good night rest.

    you don\'t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my

    10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

  19. What the heck i just read? The primary thing is to
    discuss with a physician before making use of this product
    or service. The extract of Garcinia Cambogia is obtainable
    as pills and products and advising a physician will give you a obvious knowledge of the point that will it fit you or not.
    This remedy commonly meets the needs of all of the individuals but exclusions are usually there.
    So, you need to ensure that you aren\'t the one which could not work with this product.
    Essential problem is concerning the amount. You should question your medical professional concerning the consumption and be precise about it
    authentic Garcinia Cambogia.
    WOW.Nice read here. The true key to exactly how the product functions is
    that it is really a dual action diet supplement, meaning that
    functions being an appetite reducing aid including a \"fat burner\".

    This actually suggests that it oxidizes your fat units by using anti-oxidants, and also ends in very much more
    energy for you - however , only when know how taking authentic Garcinia Cambogia in the suitable manner.Virtually
    all diet supplements available today are made all over reving up your metabolic rate,
    which is not really harmless for many people - and this is the reason why more and more are deciding to buy Garcinia Cambogia extract instead.
