Users Beware: Many Sites Have Serious Security Holes
San Francisco, CA – Millions of people use Internet dating sites to search for love and connection every day, but it could come a big cost for their privacy and security. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has found that many services are taking shortcuts in safeguarding users’ profiles and other sensitive data.

Clarksville, TN – In the study of history, certain events stand out. If you’re examining the Civil War, for example, the Battle of Gettysburg will likely appear most often in textbooks and lectures. If it’s World War II that interests you, D-Day is a popular topic of choice.
But these events, while important, are just a sampling of history. What about the contributions Native American soldiers made during World War I, or the role of African-Americans during the American Revolution? For two Austin Peay State University professors, it’s sometimes frustrating locating textbooks that include the lesser known but equally important historical events.
Lifting the load
Written by Spc. Michael Vanpool
Fort Campbell, KY – The 101st Sustainment Brigade is receiving new lift systems to make better use of space and cut down on time at the Supply Support Activity at the Eagle Complex here.
The two systems, the Vertical Lift System and STAK, consist of rows of shelves where bins used to be. Smaller forklifts go up the shelves to pull parts for customers.
“Instead of a new facility with more space, you can maximize your storage, and monitor your parts better,” said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Joseph Sweatt, the accountable officer for the SSA, and service and supply officer for the 129th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade.
