According to the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence, President Obama has renewed the NSA’s authority to collect all of the telephone records of all American telephone customers. The “Section 215” program exceeded Congressional authority and was found to be ineffective by two expert panels. At a speech on January 17, 2014, President Obama ordered a transition that will end the Section 215 bulk telephony metadata program as it currently exists. However, according to DNI Clapper, the United States filed an application with the FISC to reauthorize the existing program as previously modified for 90 days, and the FISC issued an order approving the government’s application. The order issued expires on June 20, 2014. EPIC and others have strongly objected to the renewal of the 215 program.

1 Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”[b]
3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.
5 I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.
7 Arise, Lord!
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
8 From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.

Would you like some synthetic shoe leather in that sandwich? You’d probably gasp if your sandwich builder asked you that, but the truth is, azodicarbonamide, an industrial chemical foaming agent used to make synthetic leather as well as yoga mats and dozens of other consumer products, is found in nearly 500 foods, according to a new report from the nonprofit Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Azodicarbonamide, also known as ADA, makes materials—and bread—strong, light, spongy, and malleable, which makes it appealing to food scientists, who have slipped it into all sorts of your favorite foods, including many bread products. That’s right, a yoga mat ingredient in your food is a real thing you now have to deal with, on top of all of the pesticides and other nasty food additives in the U.S. food system. In addition to yoga mats and shoe soles, the chemical is used in attic foam insulation. It’s been approved as a food additive in the U.S. since 1962, despite the fact that it’s banned in the European Union and Australia.

Subway recently announced plans to phase ADA out of its breads, thanks to a petition created by food-safety advocate Vani Hari, aka the Food Babe, but the chemical is still found in bread used at many other fast food chains like Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Dunkin Donuts, and Burger King, according to EWG.
