Florida divers find trove of suspected cocaine packages in Atlantic Ocean

FL divers find cocaineDivers in Key West, Florida, have discovered more than a dozen packages of suspected cocaine in the Atlantic Ocean.

On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office in Monroe county announced the discovery, saying that divers found 25kg of individually wrapped packages of suspected cocaine that were located approximately 100ft underwater.

“The sheriffs responded to the Rainbow Reef Dive Center in Key Largo at approximately 12.25pm where divers stated they were removing what they thought was trash when the discovery was made,” the sheriff’s office said.

A photo posted on Facebook showed a ripped black garbage bag next to the gray packages of suspected cocaine. Each of the packages was wrapped in clear plastic and marked with a blue “Nike SB” sign and the Nike swoosh logo.


Another Boeing whistleblower comes forward over safety concerns

Another Boeing whistleblower

Another Boeing whistleblower has come forward with claims that safety and quality issues were ignored and concerns were dismissed by management.

Roy Irvin, who worked at Boeing’s plant in South Carolina from 2011 to 2017 as a quality investigator, alleged that he was reprimanded as “insubordinate” for flagging safety and quality issues on 787 Dreamliner planes that he inspected.

“Missing safety devices on hardware or un-tightened hardware means that you’re not going to be able to control the airplane if those fail,” Irvin told the New York Post. “The safety device is on there. If the fastener is not secured correctly, it’s going to fall off and you’re not gonna be able to control the airplane.”

The development comes after the Guardian spoke with workers at Boeing’s Everett, Washington plant, who said the factory was in “panic mode” as they stripped and repaired 787 jets flown across from South Carolina to be fixed.


Columbia Law Review Refused to Take Down Article on Palestine, So Its Board of Directors Nuked the Whole Website

Columbia Law Review bans article by Palestinian lawyerLast November, the Harvard Law Review made the unprecedented decision to kill a fully edited essay prior to publication. The author, human rights lawyer Rabea Eghbariah, was to be the first Palestinian legal scholar published in the prestigious journal.

As The Intercept reported at the time, Eghbariah’s essay — an argument for establishing “Nakba,” the expulsion, dispossession, and oppression of Palestinians, as a formal legal concept that widens its scope — faced extraordinary editorial scrutiny and eventual censorship.

When the Harvard publication spiked his article, editors from another Ivy League law school reached out to Eghbariah. Students from the Columbia Law Review solicited a new article from the scholar and, upon receiving it, decided to edit it and prepare it for publication.

On Sunday morning, Cal Fire announced that the fire had spanned 12,500 acres and was 15% contained. “Strong winds and dry grass have made it difficult to contain,” it added.
