Taking a broader perspective on this issue, if the U.S. Census Bureau could improve the accuracy of its report on U.S. wet and dry mill process corn use and co-product production, then it could provide agribusiness, other government agencies and the general public with more accurate data on which to make bioenergy-related business and policy decisions with. However, the "under counting" problem that currently exists in the U.S. Census Bureau corn dry mill process data has seriously limited the accuracy, credibility and usefulness of this data resource to all users. The current U.S. Census Bureau report under-counts both corn use and co-product production in dry mill processes, and needs to be drastically improved to provide the public with credible, usable information ...

All government agencies are responsible for their own budgets and expenditures. There is no one central agency or organization responsible for making purchases for all agencies. Therefore you must contact each individual agency to register, ask for notification of upcoming contracts, and submit and negotiate proposals and contracts. Every government agency has an office of small and disadvantaged business utilization (OSDBU) and a small business liaison office (SBLO). These offices are dedicated to finding trusted vendors and making sure socioeconomic purchasing goals (i.e., goals to purchase from woman-owned and service-disabled-veteran-owned businesses, and from disadvantaged businesses and businesses in historically underutilized business zones) are met. Most government agencies and prime contractors share out-year procurement plans on this website.. Do not pursue agencies that do not have a need for what you offer. It is important for you to determine who buys what you sell. You may glean ...
Source: Newsday, August 2, 2002. Third FBI search of researcher s apartment. By Laurie Garrett, Staff Writer. For the third time in seven months, the FBI yesterday searched the Maryland home of Dr. Steven Hatfill, a bioterrorism researcher, as part of its anthrax investigation.. Though news helicopters and reporters converged on the apartment building in Frederick, and the FBI presented an expanded search warrant that indicated probable cause, FBI sources insisted that Hatfill, 48, is not a suspect. Top federal officials close to the investigation said they knew of nothing special about the searches, nor did the FBI appear to be closing in on a final suspect or arrest.. The Detrick Plaza Apartments is adjacent to Fort Detrick, which houses the Armys top-security biological research laboratory, USAMRIID (the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases), where Hatfill used to work. For several hours a large law enforcement team scoured the apartment and trash bins outside the ...
Ironically, the California system is demonstrating the biggest problems for high speed rail in the U.S. may not be our lack of technical knowledge but our troubled infrastructure planning and delivery system. Disputes about alignments in California have already spawned lawsuits. Maybe beyond ogling their trains, we should study how our foreign counterparts resolve conflicts about system design. In one case study I read about planning a TGV line in France, the government convened a "debate" bringing together the stakeholders before choosing an alignment or other technical details. In the U.S. on the other hand, government agencies act both as project designers and boosters, relegating other stakeholders to reactionary roles as outsiders who rely on lawsuits to pursue their interests. In addition, our government agencies are also lacking in competent planners and administrators who specialize in rail. In the end, dysfunctional planning processes and weak planning capacity may result in avoidable ...

Clark Kerr, ousted from his job as president of the University of California following student protests in the 1960s, says he is greatly disturbed by documents revealing that the FBI campaigned to get him fired. Kerr, 91, a renowned educator who led UC to academic excellence, also said that the FBI harmed the integrity of the university by intruding into campus affairs and exacerbating internal disputes. The Chronicles report was based on FBI records obtained after a 17-year legal battle under the Freedom of Information Act. The FBI refused to turn over many records on the grounds that they concerned law enforcement, but five federal judges found that many of the FBIs activities were unlawful and ordered more than 200,000 pages of the files released. Kerrs dismissal followed a series of protests, including the 1964 Free Speech Movement, in which Berkeley students challenging the universitys ban against campus political activity staged the nations first major college protests of the era.

The same logic applies to security concerns. We need to accept that politically motivated violence will be a chronic problem, just like crime and pollution. Just as every large company and government agency has to conduct environmental impact studies and take into consideration the effects of its policies on pollution levels, so do large companies and government agencies now need to take security against terrorist attacks into consideration when designing new projects and in the normal course of their work. Taking into account problems and risks of pollution or security vulnerabilities does not mean allowing such considerations to dominate our thinking or rule out activities that are of interest and value to our society. Rather it means that reasonable and cost-effective measures to reduce those risks will become standard expectations along with detailed formulas and standards that will evolve over time as technologies, values, and specific challenges change.. In this connection, note that we ...
Do not ever put anything on your skin or your hair without checking the ingredients first, even if it says "wont clog pores" or "noncomedogenic" on the bottle. No government agency oversees this so skincare companies can claim their products promote clear skin and have pore cloggers in their ingredient deck.. Many professional skin care products, natural skin care products, organic skin care products and even acne skin care products can have pore-clogging ingredients. No government agency oversees this, so skincare companies can claim their products promote clear skin and have pore cloggers in their ingredient deck.. There are many ingredients that sound wonderful for your skin, but can be some of the worst offenders. Natural oils like cocoa butter and coconut oil which are found in many "organic" skin care lines will wreak havoc with acne-prone skin.

We often review apps that children and teens are using but we also want to share apps that can be helpful for families. FBI Child is an app that we highly recommend for parents.. Today Im going to review an app created by the FBI for parents to help them keep important information about their children in case of an emergency. The app is called, "FBI Child ID" and is available on iOs and Android devices. The icon looks like this.. The website for the application states the following:. "A child goes missing every 40 seconds in America. Some may never return home." That is a scary thought. Preparing yourself, just in case, is always a good idea. Lets face it, when there is an emergency that last thing a worried parent wants to do is gather information for authorities that may be misleading or unreliable. Chances are people who are in a stressful situation tend to struggle remembering details. The best way to understand the application is to walk through it. Lets take a look.. ...
Garrett Wilson, a paramilitary trainer and gun seller working as an FBI informant, had made an agreement to give weapons training to a group of radical militants, but the FBI canceled the plan at the last minute after FBI superior Carson Dunbar worried the FBI could be training future terrorists. Wilson had made the arrangement with Clement Rodney Hampton-El and Abu Ubaidah Yahya, both of whom are connected to the Al-Kifah Refugee Center, which is linked to al-Qaeda and the CIA (see 1986-1993). But while the training has been canceled, Wilsons cover as an informant has not been blown yet and his FBI handlers realize that Wilson would still have to give Hampton-El some equipment hed bought for him. His FBI handlers Tommy Corrigan and John Liguori proposes that Wilson meet Hampton-El so the FBI can monitor the meeting and see where the trail leads. This time, they avoid Dunbar and get permission from a different supervisor, Neil Herman. Wilson goes to meet Hampton-El at a New Jersey hotel on ...

At a hearing last week by the House Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee, lawmakers and experts examined the federal governments anti-money laundering (AML) efforts under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). Much of the commentary focused on the compliance challenges facing financial institutions, including compliance trends, the effectiveness of current reporting requirements, and opportunities to improve and enhance the federal governments ability to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.. "The goals of the Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering (BSA/AML) legal regime are laudable: financial institutions and government agencies should work together to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. However, aspects of this regulation have spiraled out-of-control and resulted in a breakdown between law enforcement, financial regulators, and institutions. The de-risking seen throughout the financial services space, in part because of BSA/AML regulation, actually ...

Q: Can you refer me to a good LASIK surgeon in my area? A: Refer to the Other Resources section of this site. You may want to contact the organizations listed there for additional information. While FDA regulates medical devices and drugs, FDA does not regulate the practice of medicine and does not have a registry of doctors. FDA does not know of any government agency that can provide a referral for any medical procedure. You may want to go to your library and see if there is a local community services magazine that may provide comparison information of services for doctors in your area. Q: How do I report a bad experience or who do I notify about a bad doctor? A: If you had a bad experience or sustained an injury, you should file a voluntary MedWatch report (1-800-FDA-1088) to the FDA. Also, you could contact your state medical licensing board and file a complaint with them. In addition, you could contact your state health department or consumer complaint organization (e.g., Better Business ...
Play on Ministry of Railways (Tiědào Bù 铁道部), the erstwhile government agency notorious first for maddening ticket policies, then for the Wenzhou train crash. Controversy about the Ministry of Railways stirred in December 2010, when the ministry announced that economy class train tickets would be refunded if the passenger arrived late for their train, but no similar restriction applied to those who held tickets for high speed trains. Netizens also invoked the "Ministry of Bullying" in complaints about ticket scarcity and poor service. Far worse for the ministry was its safety record. In March 2011, local ministry officials were alleged to be complicit in the death of a college student on a train. Then on July 23, a high-speed train crash in Wenzhou killed 40 passengers and injured nearly 200. Fury erupted on Weibo when images emerged of workers burying the rail cars fewer than 24 hours after the accident. Accusations flew that the ministrys lax oversight allowed the crash to occur. ...
1. Why Economics? Economics is a fascinating major that helps you develop analytical skills that are applicable to a wide range of jobs. Economists work in Wall Street; banking, finance and insurance, all aspects of business; multinational corporations; real estate; utility companies; non-profits; regulation, city, state and federal government agencies; international agencies like the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank; sports, health and aging; and in academia.. Economic issues are powerful enough to shape the world. Slowly but surely, economic issues make their way to your pocketbook. Many pressing social issues have their roots in economics. Microeconomic principles set the foundation for business. Macroeconomic policies shape the destinies of nations. Keynes put it a little more eloquently when he said, "The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by ...
Theres more at the rear of these advancements than fits the attention. Aside from the self-evident benefit for those in the medical job, there has also recently been a regulatory component driving a car these innovations, specifically, federal government agencies and the private sector have pushed for improvements in the identity and trace-ability of medical device components. Several years back legislation was handed in the U. T. mandating the FDA create regulations establishing unique device identification (UDI) system for medical devices (Source: "Unique Device Identification System", Polices. gov). The motivation at the rear of this was to make it much easier to rapidly identify and isolate any equipment that may need to be recalled and, finally, to improve patient security. Subsequent amendments mandated that markings must appear "on the device itself" for particular categories of devices.. These markings, which are industry- and vendor-specific, often require that medical devices and ...
Both health and sustainability are stated public policy objectives in Canada, but food information rules and practices may not be optimal to support their achievement. In the absence of a stated consensus on the purposes of public information about food, the information provided is frequently determined by the marketers of product. No institution or agency has responsibility for determining the overall coherence of consumer food messages relative to these broader social goals of health and sustainability. Individual firms provide information that shows their products to best advantage, which may contradict what is provided about the product by another firm or government agency. Individual consumers do not have the resources to determine easily the completeness of any firms messages, particularly in light of the size of food industry advertising budgets. Government rules confound this problem because there is also little coherence between the parts of government that have responsibility for point of

approaches Boris Stone, the Plant Supervisor, with her concerns. Boris replies, "Its up to the government agency to protect the river from excess waste, and the company only had to meet the agencys standards. The amount of waste being released poses no threat to the environment, according to the agency. The engineers and chemists who originally designed the production process must have been too conservative in their estimates. Even if the agency made a mistake, the additional recycling and waste reduction process can be added later when it becomes necessary. At this point, building the additional process would require costly interruptions in the production process and might cause customers to switch to our competitors at a time of heightened competition. The environmental groups might become suspicious if production was stopped to add the additional process‑they might see it as an admission of wrongdoing ...
Time Magazine February 20, 2005 CAN THE FDA HEAL ITSELF? A permanent director and a new safety panel may not be enough to bring the agency back to health By Christine Gorman Like any government agency that has been around for almost a century, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has endured its share of rough patches. But "rough patch" hardly begins to describe all the bad news that has battered the agency over the past few months, from the possible suicide risks with antidepressants like Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft to the cardiac risks of pain-killers like Vioxx, Celebrex and Bextra. Americans depend on the FDA to carefully weigh the benefits and risks of all drugs before approving them, but the agency has had trouble lately shaking the growing perception, justified or not, that it has been working harder protecting the pharmaceutical industry than the public its supposed to serve. The pressure for action grew so intense by last week that the FDA was forced to take action. On the eve of ...

Government agencies need SAS solutions to help them manage and analyze big data for a variety of initiatives, from audits to workforce programs.
While it is true that FOI is already in the Constitution, there are no details how government agencies can be penalized for not being transparent to the citizens and taxpayers. And while the ratio of public debt to GDP has declined somewhat, from about 60 percent a few years ago to around 50 percent today, this ratio is still high. A high public is a big problem that requires big payment from taxpayers, not from politicians and legislators. At around P328 billion a year in interest payment alone, average for 2010 to 2012, this problem will continue to hound us as it is the single biggest problem in many European and North American economies now ...

Professor Gang Qu (ECE/ISR), who also has an appointment in the Maryland Cybersecurity Center, recently organized a two-day workshop focusing on the future roles and impact of military information technologies.. The workshop, held in College Park, Md., from March 10 -11, was sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Office. Approximately 30 experts from academia, government agencies, and industry were invited to attend the event, which looked at how information technologies will co-evolve with future technologies for key military functions.. "We cannot visualize information technologies of 2050 while anchored in mental images of war-fighting tools and techniques of 2010," said the Army Research Laboratorys Alexander Kott, a co-organizer of the event. "Thus, we have to explore visions of both informational and physical aspects simultaneously.". Qu said the productive workshop will lead to more discussions on how to better prepare soldiers.

A recent report from one of the largest language translation companies in the country offers a fascinating look at the assortment and popularity of mother tongues spoken across the land.. Not surprising, Spanish remains the most requested language for over-the-phone interpretations in the 20 largest U.S. cities, according to the report by Language Line Services, which serves hospitals as well as law enforcement and government agencies.. The California-based company analyzed interpreter requests, from the beginning of 2011 to the beginning of 2012. The findings were issued this week.. After Spanish, the most requested languages for interpretation in the largest cities were Arabic, Vietnamese and Mandarin.. In addition, the study found that some languages showed significant growth in certain cities. For example, Somali interpretation requests were up by more than 100 percent in Phoenix and 92 percent in Memphis. Meanwhile, Burmese has emerged as the most requested language for interpretation, ...

These are derivative contracts in that the pricing of a CDS is tied to the current market perception of the credit worthiness of the debt issuer. A CDS can be constructed on the debt issues of almost any corporation, municipality, bank, government and government agency that are rated for credit worthiness. A CDS buyer pays a premium to the seller and would receive payment from the seller if the underlying credit issue defaults or there is a change in the rating status per the terms of the individual CDS. If there is no default or rating change in the underlying debt, the seller keeps the premium. A credit default swap (CDS) is the most highly utilized type of credit derivative. Most debt holders want to keep the loan in place so they can continue to ...

It started small: temporary gravity failures, time reversal loops, entropy reversals. With much fanfare a new government agency was formed with a mandate "to prevent and protect." Its official title: The Federal Bureau of Physics. Humans, if nothing else, adapt to the changing parameters of their existence. What was extraordinary soon became ordinary, a part of peoples daily lives. They move on and do what people have always done: survive. But even that new status quo is now under threat. Things are getting worse, and it falls to Special Agent Adam Hardy and his FBP team to figure out whats going on, before its too late... ...
Students majoring in ecology, evolution, and behavior (EEB) focus on three related areas of biology. Ecology examines the growth and maintenance of populations and their interactions in communities, and relationships among organisms and physical events in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Evolution investigates the origin and change of biological diversity by studying evolutionary patterns and processes at various temporal and spatial scales. Behavioral biology explores behavioral adaptations to the environment, mechanisms of behavior, and the evolution of social systems. A BS in EEB prepares students for graduate study in integrative biology and related biological sciences, careers in teaching, and entry-level scientist positions in industry, government agencies, nonprofit agencies, and universities ...

Is it any wonder that, when a diet comes along and allows these foods, in complete contradiction to decades of fat phobia propoganda, it is vehemently opposed by the leading health organizations and government agencies? That were innundated with dire warnings of consequence to health, heaped upon us in a concerted effort to discredit and dismiss anyone who says differently; despite scientific evidence and data supporting not only the inclusion of these foods in the human diet, but their inportant contributions to the human diet!. Ignore the man behind the curtain Dorothy....ignore that in the noble attempts to improve the health of our population, researchers and clinicians were lead astray by what we now know was half-truth data, published in the fifties and sixties. They know it, we know it, but still its difficult to come to grips with that fact and reverse direction after decades of building the foundation of a "truth" only to find it terribly flawed. Its often easier to continue on in ...
WICHITA, Kan. - Farmers from across the nation gathered in Washington this month for what has become an annual trek to seek action on the most important matters in American agriculture, such as immigration reform and water regulations.. But this time, a new, more shadowy issue also emerged: growing unease about how the largest seed companies are gathering vast amount of data from sensors on tractors, combines and other farm equipment.. The increasingly common sensors measure soil conditions, seeding rates, crop yields and many other variables, allowing companies to provide farmers with customized guidance on how to get the most out of their fields.. The involvement of the American Farm Bureau, the nations largest and most prominent farming organization, illustrates how agriculture is cautiously entering a new era in which raw planting data holds both the promise of higher yields and the peril that the information could be hacked or exploited by corporations or government agencies.. Seed ...
Chris Crosbys presentation at Fridays DataCenterDynamics Washington conference was titled "A Common Sense Guide for Planning and Designing A Green Datacenter.". "We put green in quotes because its so abused these days," said Crosby, the senior VP of technical serviecs for Digital Realty Trust. "We think it makes sense because it can help you save money. Its not so much about reducing power, but using only what you need and wasting as little as possible. What you used to call good business practice, many people now called green. While the hype is out there, this gets down to saving you money.". The business benefit of energy-efficient data centers was a key theme at last Fridays even at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda, Md., which drew a crowd of more than 350 data center professionals, including many from government agencies. While a "green data center" may mean different things to different people, virtually all attendees were interested in discussing practical strategies to manage energy ...
I dont see much data in many Y2K arguments that downplay the significance of the event. Granted, the problem with personal "stand alone" computers is minimal. If you cant get your Quicken to work or if your Windows 95 is not Y2K compliant it wont affect many others and may only be a minor inconvenience to you. But there are legacy systems that large corporations and the government have that are responsible for cutting paychecks and scheduling and inventory. These systems are the ones that have gotten much of the press. The idea is that these huge programs with millions of lines of code that were written in COBOL twenty years ago, will not properly account for the change over to the year 2000. Indeed this has been the focus of many people, and most of the large corporations, public utilities and government agencies have thrown money at this problem over the past year to several years. I hope they are successful, but we just wont know until they perform tests on their systems. Some companies ...

Basic components of Pentagon research effort to detect terrorism by electronically monitoring civilian population are already in place, including e-mail, online shopping and travel booking, ATM systems, cellphone networks, electronic toll-collection systems and credit-card payment terminals, all of which have been willingly embraced by public; Pentagon would only have to create software technology that would connect these sources of data; technologists say types of computerized data sifting and pattern matching that might flag suspicious activities to government agencies and coordinate their surveillance are not much different from programs already being used by private companies to spot unusual credit card activity or let people at multiple locations collaborate on project; photos (M)

By Roberto Pedone] One technology player that insiders are active in here is Jive Software (NS), which provides a social business software platform to businesses, government agencies, and other enterprises. Insiders are buying this stock into massive weakness, since shares are down sharply by 43% so far in 2014. Jive Software has a market cap of $446 million and an enterprise value of $365 million. This stock trades at a fair valuation, with a price-to-sales of 2.68 and a price-to-book of 5.67. Its estimated growth rate for this year is 45.5%, and for next year its pegged at 30%. This is a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on its balance sheet is $98.18 million and its total debt is $6.60 million. A director just bought 260,819 shares, or about $1.71 million worth of stock, at $6.53 to $6.60 per share.. From a technical perspective, JIVE is currently trending just above its 50-day moving average and below its 200-day moving average, which is neutral trendwise. This stock recently ...
Gainers deliberately gain weight, a lot of weight, super morbidly obese, not just lumpy, dumpy, chubby, but skin-melds-with-the-couch obese (so large that they cant move, because their skin has fused with whatever bed or sofa they are sitting on).. Watching the attacks on Mia Freedman for her totally innocuous comments, from obese people who are offended by their choice to eat themselves to death questioned by someone who looks like she takes care of her health.. The critics went from defending an obese persons lifestyle choice to attacking the writer, Mia Freedman, not what she wrote. These Gainers defended their lifestyle like a mama lion defending her babies. However as a friend noticed, where are the defenders of Veganism. Vegan get their children removed by government agencies for not feeding children animal products, equating veganism with child abuse, yet the woman at the centre of Mias article, is eating herself to death in front of her children.. Which raises the question, in our ...

FRIM is well aware that there are already many innovative projects being funded by major companies, national foundations, and government agencies in the medical therapeutics fields, including some of those noted below. However, there are numerous highly innovative medical therapies, especially electrotherapeutics and other energy-based therapies that researchers have great difficulty getting funding for. For example, little research has been done on electrotherapeutics for microbial diseases that could potentially treat any microbial disease, including AIDS, malaria, bacterial, viral, and fungal diseases. This could not only solve the huge and growing antibiotic resistance problem around the world, but could also provide a quick response to bioterrorism, should it occur.. In addition, electrotherapeutics and energy based methods could potentially be used to treat Alzheimers, cancer, and other diseases, as well as, slow the aging process and enhance longevity. Little or no research has ever been ...

The Weissman thing at the bottom doesnt sound right. He had a mouse model where he could cure type 1 diabetes with adult stem cells and he went to pharma for money? You dont do that. Its the wrong place to ask for money for non drug research. You send that kind of grant to the NIH or something like that. They might have been afraid to touch it because it said stem cells, but thats a different story. Some friends in evolution research talk about having to leave out certain words from their grant apps to keep fundies from getting their congresscritters from fucking with the budgets of entire government agencies or major universities. So you learn to play the game. Maybe Weissman never figured that out. As for the cancer part, he found some things that could lead to treatments, but arent there yet, and certainly werent there years ago. He is ahead of his time, but the way the claim is being made, it reads like he had treatments ready to study in humans for one specific type of leukemia (not all ...

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) (Māori: Te Mana Kounga Kai - Ahitereiria me Aotearoa), formerly Australia New Zealand Food Authority (ANZFA), is the governmental body responsible for developing food standards for Australia and New Zealand. FSANZ develops food standards after consulting with other government agencies and stakeholders. The recommendations made by the body are open and accountable, and based upon a rigorous scientific assessment of risk to public health and safety. All decisions made by FSANZ must be approved by the Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Ministerial Council, which is composed of the Health Minister from each of the Australian states and territories, and the Health Minister from New Zealand, as well as other participating Ministers nominated by each jurisdiction. This may lead to political interference in the decision: for example the decision made over hemp seed, when the Food Standards scientists recommended that hemp seed be allowed for sale, the ...

Landmark Legislation Still Holds Significance for Millions of Americans. TAMPA, Fla. - Several government agencies will join forces on July 2 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon B. Johnsons signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced today. The landmark legislation, which outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin, was envisioned and drafted by President John F. Kennedy in 1963 and was enacted in 1964 following his assassination.. The EEOCs Tampa Field Office will join the Hillsborough County Office of Community Affairs and the City of Tampas Office of Human Rights to host an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the passage of the law. The event will be held at the John F. Germany Library Auditorium, located at 900 North Ashley Street in downtown Tampa.. "Many people fought and worked exceedingly hard for the legal protections men and women of all races, religion, ...
In the most comprehensive study ever to be carried out into the nutritional content of organic food compared to ordinary fare, scientists found no significant difference in vitamins and minerals. A separate study found there are no extra health benefits to eating organic food rather than meat, fruits or vegetables grown on intensive farms. The Food Standards Agency (FSA), which commissioned the research by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, concluded there was no reason to buy expensive organic food for nutritional reasons. The study is likely to come as a blow to the billion-pound industry which is already struggling in the economic downturn as shoppers turn away from more expensive goods. For example, an organic chicken costs three times the price of a more conventionally-reared bird. But celebrity chefs and organic farmers said the studies failed to take into account the health impact of the cocktail of chemicals left on conventional food and the environmental benefits of ...
Don Foster. [Source: Al Novak]October 12, 2001, the FBI contracted Don Foster to help with the newly formed anthrax attacks investigation. Foster is a professor of English literature at Vassar College who has been advising the FBI and other government agencies for years due to his expertise in writing analysis. He has sometimes correctly guessed the identities of anonymous authors by analyzing their word usage, not their handwriting styles. By studying news reports of hoax anthrax letters, Foster begins to get interested in Steven Hatfill as a potential suspect. Hatfill had appeared as an expert on biological attacks in some articles dating back to 1998, and he has a curious history while living in Zimbabwe and South Africa in the late 1970s and early 1980s, a time when the racist white government of Zimbabwe (then known as Rhodesia) possibly launched an anthrax attack on their own black citizens. Foster will write in 2003, "When I lined up Hatfills known movements with the postmark locations ...
For 30 years, federal agencies have made awards to small businesses for technology research and development through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and, more recently, through the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program. Over the past 6 years, agencies have obligated about $2.4 billion annually for these two programs. Federal agencies with a budget of more than $100 million for extramural research or research and development--which is conducted by nonfederal employees outside of federal facilities--must establish and operate an SBIR program. Eleven federal agencies currently participate in the SBIR program: the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense (DOD), Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Transportation; the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); and the National Science Foundation. Federal agencies with a budget of more than $1 billion for extramural research or ...
