7 The best PCs for privacy-minded people Don’t expect to see FCC Chairman Ajit Pai brief the House Committee on Energy and Commerce anytime soon. Alex Edelman / Getty Images Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai won’t brief a Congressional committee Monday about mobile carriers’ ability to share their subscribers’ location data with third parties.Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., the chair of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, sought Pai for an emergency briefing after a Motherboard investigation revealed carriers are selling customers’ location data. But the committee was told the FCC boss wouldn’t appear due to the ongoing government shutdown.”In a phone conversation today, his staff asserted that these egregious actions are not a threat to the safety of human life or property that the FCC will address during the Trump shutdown,” the New Jersey Democrat said in a statement. 22 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Stronger data privacy laws may be coming to the US 1:41 Comments It noted that the investigation would continue once normal FCC operations resume.Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who questioned last May why cops can track any phone in seconds, reportedly slammed Pai for tweeting “cat videos and tired memes” instead of briefing Congress.”It’s a new low for someone who has spent his tenure at the FCC refusing to do his job and stand up for American consumers,” Wyden said in a statement to Gizmodo.One of the third parties using the location data is credit reporting company Microbilt, which is offering to “track down delinquent debtors” via its Mobile Device Verify service.Ajit Pai on net neutrality: Congress was right not to restore the regulations, the FCC chairman says.A boost for 5G and Wi-Fi: The FCC votes to make more wireless spectrum available. FCC Privacy Security Politics Share your voice Pallone noted that Pai is still working, even though the shutdown resulted in the FCC ceasing most of its operations on Jan. 3.”There’s nothing in the law that should stop the Chairman personally from meeting about this serious threat that could allow criminals to track the location of police officers on patrol, victims of domestic abuse, or foreign adversaries to track military personnel on American soil,” he said.The FCC, however, stood firm in an emailed statement.”The Commission has been investigating wireless carriers’ handling of location information,” a spokesperson wrote. “Unfortunately, we were required to suspend that investigation earlier this month because of the lapse in funding, and pursuant to guidance from our expert attorneys, the career staff that is working on this issue are currently on furlough.” Tags

But when it became clear, in August 1968, that the module wouldn’t be ready in time, NASA had to make a decision: was it ready to fly a manned rocket to lunar orbit?“My first reaction was, ‘That’s the craziest idea I’ve ever heard,’” said Jerry Bostick, then chief of flight dynamics and retrofire officer at NASA’s Apollo Mission Control Center in Houston. “We hadn’t planned to do that until the first quarter of ′69.”It had been less than two years since the tragic Apollo 1 fire, which killed astronauts Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Edward White, and Roger Chaffee. NASA’s first manned spaceflight after that, Apollo 7, was set for that October. But the setback with the lunar module threatened the goal set by President John F. Kennedy of putting a man on the Moon by the end of the decade.“George Low [then manager of the Apollo Spacecraft Program Office, later NASA deputy administrator] came up with the bold idea of, ‘Okay, if Apollo 7 is successful, then let’s go to the Moon on Apollo 8 without the lunar module, and that will allow us to get the program back on schedule.”Christopher Kraft, then NASA’s director of flight operations, met with Bostick and three of his colleagues on a Friday afternoon to ask whether it was possible. He told them he wanted an answer by Monday.“We all went back on Monday and said, ‘There is no reason why we can’t. We won’t have everything that we want in the control center as far as displays go, but we can make do,’” Bostick said.Four months later, Frank Borman, James “Jim” Lovell, and William “Bill” Anders became the first humans to travel to the Moon. One of the most striking moments of the mission came as a complete surprise to Bostick and his colleagues at Mission Control.“What could be better than having Americans circling the Moon on Christmas Eve and reading from Genesis about the creation of the universe? It brought tears to everybody’s eye,” Bostick says.The flight set the stage for Apollo 11 to land on the Moon the following July.NOVA’s documentary, “Apollo’s Daring Mission,” premieres next Wednesday, December 26, at 8 p.m. on TV 8.

Jen Rice/Houston Public MediaDr. David Persse, Houston’s local health authority and EMS medical director, provided an update about the mumps outbreak at the Harris County Jail on June 13, 2019.Dr. David Persse, Houston’s local health authority and EMS medical director, said Thursday there are 14 potential cases of mumps at the Harris County jail. Seven cases, six inmates and one staff member, had been confirmed as of Thursday morning.The Houston Health Department is leading the response to the mumps outbreak. A spokesman told News 88.7 that the individuals who have been confirmed sick and those who have symptoms have been isolated. About 300 inmates who may have been exposed to the mumps virus are in quarantine.Persse said at a news conference held at the headquarters for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office that his department is reasonably concerned about the outbreak “because, in a small percentage of patients, there are serious complications,” such as swelling and damage of reproductive organs, which can cause sterility, as well as inflammation of the brain. Mumps can also be dangerous for pregnant women.Jail medical staff first recognized a symptomatic inmate in mid-May. No new cases were identified until last week or so, according to Persse. “That fits exactly what we would expect for the natural incubation period of mumps,” he said.Earlier on Thursday, Persse said in a news release that his department is “looking at the individual cases to identify possible contacts to ensure sure proper action is taken as needed to prevent this disease from spreading further.” “We currently do not have reason to believe this outbreak has spread outside of the jail,” he added in the news release.Personnel with the Houston Health Department has visited the jail this week to further coordinate response efforts, including the vaccination of jail staff and inmates, and isolation and quarantine guidelines.Persse said that the Harris County Sheriff’s Office “acted quickly and appropriately when it became apparent there was a problem.”At the news conference, Persse explained that mumps is a viral illness but it’s not that easy to contract. He said a person would have to be within approximately three feet of somebody coughing or sneezing, or share a glass or utensils.Mumps symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, loss of appetite and swollen glands under the ears or jaw. An infected person can spread mumps by coughing or sneezing and releasing tiny droplets of contaminated saliva, which can then be breathed in by another person.The MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine offers safe and long-lasting protection against mumps. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends children receive two dose of MMR vaccine, the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age and the second dose 4 through 6 years of age.“This is yet another reminder about the importance of proper vaccination against vaccine preventable diseases like mumps,” Persse said. “Proper vaccination is not only about protecting the individual receiving the vaccine, it’s about protecting everyone who comes into contact with that person.”Two doses of MMR vaccine are 88% effective against mumps.Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said his department is also working with the Harris County Public Health Department, led by Dr. Umair Shah.You can watch Dr. Persse’s news conference here:#HCSO @SheriffEd_HCSO and Houston’s local health authority, Dr. David Persse, will provide an update on a mumps outbreak at the Harris County Jail. #HouNews @HoustonHealth https://t.co/gSUjnZOxm4— HCSOTexas (@HCSOTexas) June 13, 2019 Share
