NASA picks 6 companies to build deep-space habitats

NASA has selected six US companies to develop deep-space-habitat prototypes.

Straight out of a science-fiction story, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration wants to build a safe place for humans to live as we spread beyond Earth.

“NASA is on an ambitious expansion of human spaceflight, including the Journey to Mars, and we’re utilizing the innovation, skill, and knowledge of both the government and private sectors,” Jason Crusan, director of NASA’s Advanced Exploration Systems, said in a statement.

The selected partners are:

— Bigelow Aerospace of Las Vegas, Nev.
— Boeing of Pasadena, Texas
— Lockheed Martin of Denver, Colo.
— Orbital ATK of Dulles, Va.
— Sierra Nevada Corporation’s Space Systems of Louisville, Colo.
— NanoRocks of Webster, Texas

Each company has up to 24 months to develop ground prototypes and/or conduct concept studies. The models will be used to support integrated systems testing, human factors, and operations testing, as well as help define overall system functionality.

NASA intends to spend an estimated $65 million in contract awards, covering work in 2016 and 2017.

“The next human exploration capabilities needed beyond the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion capsule are deep space, long-duration habitation and in-space propulsion,” Crusan said. “We are no adding focus and specifics on the deep space habitats where humans will live and work independently for months or years at a time, without cargo supply deliveries from Earth.”

Last week, NASA celebrated the Mars Rover’s fourth anniversary with an online game, cleverly called “Mars Rover Game.” Available to play via the Web or on an Android or iOS handset, the free title lets users control the Rover, gaining points for every resource you scan on the Red Planet.


Donald Trump: We now have TWO opponents…

We’re not just fighting against Hillary Clinton…

We are running against the very dishonest and totally biased media!

It’s time to hold the media accountable for trying to rig this election against us.

All too often I’m asked about a “poll” put out by a liberal organization that says the American people disagree with our common-sense reforms to fix our country.

Since Day ONE, the media has written off this campaign. They said we were doomed.

But together, you and I proved the pundits wrong and ended up getting more votes than ANY Republican candidate in the history of our Party.

And you know what?

Every time I see one more biased report from the dishonest media, I’m reminded that we’re on the RIGHT side of this fight.

Hillary Clinton STILL can’t admit that she lied about sending classified top-secret emails and that she deleted 3O,OOO to cover her tracks.

Can you imagine if I set up a secret server, stored top secret information on it, jeopardized our national security, deleted 3O,OOO records, LIED about it, and then used the defense that my brain “short-circuited”?

The media would single-handedly destroy our campaign!

I’ve always known that the media was out to get Republicans.

But this campaign has opened my eyes to how truly biased and dishonest they are.

We cannot let the media get away with it. We MUST fight back.

3 arrested after a New Mexico officer dies in shooting at a traffic stop

A police officer is dead and three suspects are in custody after a shooting at a traffic stop in New Mexico, authorities say.

The shooting occurred when the unidentified officer pulled over a vehicle in Hatch on Friday, according to the Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Department.

“Another Hatch officer had just arrived at the traffic stop to assist the first officer when a passenger from the vehicle exited and fired shots,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

The suspects fled the scene and traveled southbound on Interstate 25, at times exceeding speeds of 100 mph, according to authorities. The responding officer tried to pursue them without success.

About 25 minutes after the initial traffic stop, the suspects excited at a rest stop, where one carjacked a red Chevrolet Cruze, authorities said.

The owner of the car was shot during the carjacking, and was transported to hospital, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Donald Trump: We’re going directly to the voters

You’ve seen it – the liberal media can’t stop telling outrageous lies about me.

They are really a disgrace to journalism, and they’re so desperate to mislead the American people about our campaign!

Yet at every stage we continue to prove them wrong, including:

— Smashing the Republican primary vote record by 1.4 MILLION votes;

— Pulling off an incredible Republican National Convention, with much higher viewership than the Democrats’ disastrous convention;

— Packing stadiums everywhere we go;

— Raising $82 million in July alone from hundreds of thousands of grassroots supporters.

Now we must continue to build on our great momentum all across the country.

We know the Clinton campaign will cheat to win – just like they did in the race for the Democrat nomination.

And we know the liberal media will continue to say and do ANYTHING to put Crooked Hillary Clinton in the White House!

I know you’ve been following this race closely. I’m sure you’re as sick and tired of their desperate lies as I am.

Day in and day out they attack me, our campaign, our Republican friends down the ticket and supporters like you all across the country…

…while giving Crooked Hillary a free pass on her terrible policies and long record of failure and cronyism!

Don’t let them get away with it – help me prove our opponents and the liberal media wrong about the Trump movement, by growing our team and WINNING on Election Day!

We’re going to reach the American people directly with our message about making better deals for our country, bringing back our jobs, and achieving a brighter future for every American.

NFL says no to the Dallas Cowboy decals for fallen police officers in Dallas Texas

The NFL denied the Dallas Cowboys request to wear a decal on their helmets that would have paid tribute to the five police officers killed last month in a downtown Dallas ambush.

The team had been wearing a decal with the words “Arm in Arm” since the first day of training camp this summer where Dallas police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings paid the team a visit on that day.

The NFL has strict rules on uniforms forcing the league to deny the Cowboys request to wear the decal for the upcoming pro football season. In the past, there have been several other tribute decals allowed to be worn on helmets and other parts of the uniform.

Dallas police said it appreciated the support that the Cowboys are attempting to show.

“Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future,” the department said in a statement.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and tight end Jason Witten, who created the decal, said they were disappointed with the leagues decision but said they believed the stickers already served its purpose.

NFL says no to the Dallas Cowboy decals for fallen police officers in Dallas Texas

The Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation told the media they were extremely upset over the NFL’s decision not to allow the Cowboys to wear the decal.

“The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement,” Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the foundation, told the website. “These are our friends and our loved ones … it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us.”

Democrat Party worried another hacked email trove could surface before election

Democrat Party officials are bracing for the possibility that another batch of damaging or embarrassing internal emails, the kind that cost the party chairman her job on the eve of the Democrat National Convention could become public before the November presidential election.

That fear reportedly comes as officials with knowledge of a Russian cyber attack that targeted Democrat politicians and organizations told the media that the breach was bigger than first thought and exposed the private email accounts of party officials and groups including the personal email accounts of Hillary Clinton’s key campaign officials.

The apparent wider breach reportedly has prompted the FBI to broaden its investigation, and agents have begun notifying top Democrat officials that the Russians may have breached their personal accounts, the media reported.

An earlier release of emails just days before the party convention in Philadelphia cost Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job as party chairman, while party CEO Amy Dacey; chief finance officer Brad Marshall, and communications director Luis Miranda resigned last week.

Canada police kill suspect in an anti-terror operation

Police have shot dead a suspect in an anti-terror operation in the Canadian province of Ontario, media reports say.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) would only say “action had been taken” against a lone suspect.

Canadian media said police had raided a property in Strathroy, about 225km (140 miles) south-west of Toronto.

They named the suspect as Aaron Driver, 24, who was arrested last year for openly supporting so-called Islamic State on social media.

Arkansas deputy sheriff shot dead, suspect arrested

An Arkansas deputy sheriff was fatally shot Wednesday morning and a local police chief was injured while responding to a disturbance call.

Sebastian County Deputy Bill Cooper, who had been shot in the neck, was pronounced dead Wednesday afternoon at Sparks Hospital in Fort Smith.

A visibly emotional Sheriff Bill Hollenbeck described Cooper, a 15-year veteran and former U.S. Marine, as “dynamic.”

“He loved his job,” Hollenbeck told a news conference. “He could’ve retired years ago. He loved this community so much he stayed on.”

Deputy Bill Cooper was shot Wednesday morning.

Billy Monroe Jones, 34, was identified as the accused gunman and taken into custody shortly before noon, nearly five hours after the shooting at Jones’ home east of Hackett, near the Oklahoma border.

Parents of Two Benghazi Victims Sue Hillary Clinton

Parents of two of the four Americans who were killed in the Benghazi attack in 2012 filed have a lawsuit Monday against Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, alleging recklessly handling of classified information contributed to their deaths.

The case has been filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, for allegedly wrongfully causing the death of their sons as well as for defamation and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit suggests that Clinton’s use of a private email server contributed to the deaths of Smith and Woods, adding that terrorists were able to “obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. State Department and covert and other government operations in Benghazi, Libya and subsequently orchestrate, plan, and execute the now infamous September 11, 2012 attack.”

“Having used a secret private email server that we now know was used to communicate with Ambassador Christopher Stevens with confidential and classified government information, and which we also now know was likely hacked by hostile adversaries such as Iran, Russia, China and North Korea aligning with terrorist groups, it is clear that Hillary Clinton allegedly negligently and recklessly gave up the classified location of the plaintiffs’ sons, resulting in a deadly terrorist attack that took their lives,” Klayman said in a statement announcing the suit.

In addition to the wrongful death and negligence charges named in the suit, the parents also claim that Clinton defamed them in statements to the media, according to court documents.

“During her campaign for President, Defendant Clinton has negligently, recklessly, and/or maliciously defamed Plaintiffs by either directly calling them liars, or by strongly implying that they are liars, in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them to not speak up about the Benghazi attack on at least four separate occasions,” Klayman wrote in his complaint.
