While everyone is focused on whether Mr. Burns, aka Larry Summers will take over for Ben Bernanke (he won't), lots of peripheral resignations are flying around. the most recent one: that of the U.S. secretary of the $60-billion budget and 240,000 employees Department of Homeland Security - Janet Napolitano, who will be named the next president of the University of California system.
After the United States announced it was axing revealing full-body scanners it appears Canadian airports may not be too far behind.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center sued the Transportation Security Authority (TSA) in 2010 over the scanners, claiming they went against privacy laws and said the machines were equivalent to a “physically invasive strip search.”
Because their full-body scanner supplier, OSI Systems’ Rapiscan, is unable to produce the type of images they want, the TSA has decided to ended their $5 million contract.
