EPA:

Cyberattack threatened agency's 'command and control'

On Nov. 1, 2011, investigators began looking into an unwanted visitor to U.S. EPA's interconnected system of computers, servers and other devices at its Washington headquarters. The trespasser had gained access with a personal computer to the network at least six times. "The impact of this incident represents a compromise of the command and control of EPA systems and the EPA network," the agency's inspector general said. Such incidents and their dead-end investigations are prevalent in many of the 14 IG reports on EPA cybersecurity incidents obtained by Greenwire. Records touch on hackers' attempts to access EPA computers, leading to potential shenanigans with property and personnel, including the exposure of employees' personal information.

AIR POLLUTION:

Texas scientist wages rare campaign for EPA advisory post

The top toxicologist for Texas' environmental agency has waged an unprecedented campaign for a spot on a U.S. EPA panel with a critical role in reviewing Clean Air Act standards. While industry support for Michael Honeycutt is making environmentalists queasy, a Boston-based researcher who's leaving the coveted Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee seat shrugs at Honeycutt's push. "It's unusual," scientist George Allen says, "but these are unusual times."

POLITICS:

Africans watch U.S. race from afar with hope and concern

KAMPALA, Uganda — Somewhere on the highway between the capital and Queen Elizabeth National Park near the Democratic Republic of Congo border, the Toyota van driver wanted to know: "Have you seen the video of Donald Trump as Idi Amin?" The Comedy Central clip juxtaposing Trump campaign video clips against sound bites from a handful of African leaders, including the infamous Ugandan dictator Amin, has special resonance here in Uganda, where U.S. presidential politics are always a trending topic.
