New PRISM slides say the program allows NSA to eavesdrop on live conversations

Gigaom

As controversy continues to swirl around whistleblower Edward Snowden and his whereabouts, the Washington Posthas published several more slides from the NSA presentation that the former CIA staffer leaked to both the Post and the Guardian — slides that provide further details about the surveillance program known as PRISM and how it functions.

Among other things, the slides highlight the large discrepancies between the way the program is described and the strenuous denials from tech giants such as Google (s goog), Yahoo (s yhoo), Microsoft (s msft) and Facebook (s fb) about their participation in such a program.

For example, according to annotations from the Post — based on what the newspaper says is its own reporting, as well as other slides that haven’t been published yet — PRISM involves “government equipment on private company property” that is used to retrieve information from “participating companies such as Microsoft or…

Heat Warnings Extend Into Tuesday For Bay Area, Much Of California

CBS San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — There’s no relief in sight for Californians as forecasters warned the state’s heat wave would extend into Tuesday.

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING:East Bay | South Bay | North Bay | KPIX 5 WeatherCenter

A special statement from the National Weather Service indicated the Bay Area will experience hot temperatures until at least 7 p.m. Tuesday, and maybe longer.

To make matters worse, the NWS said cooling ocean breezes haven’t been traveling far enough inland overnight to fan the overheated valleys throughout much of the state.

Downtown Oakland set a record high of 85 on Saturday – four degrees higher that the previous record for the date set in 1991, and Mountain View at 92 broke a high temperature record set in 1950 by a single degree.

DENVER — The continued warm weather is leading a lot of us to take a dip into the lakes around us. But the state is taking a stand against those who also dip too much into alcohol — and then drive their boats.

At Cherry Creek State Park the water is as wet as anywhere. But Colorado Parks and Wildlife rangers are pushing for “dry” water.

“’Operation Dry Water’ is a campaign to increase awareness around the hazards that exist with boating under the influence of alcohol, drugs or both,” says Michael Allen, Boat Patrol Supervisor with Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

This weekend, they’re providing heightened enforcement and awareness about BUI or boating under the influence.

“We’re looking for people might be driving carelessly, or causing other boaters to swerve,” says Allen.

This crime is on the water. But the same rules apply as on the road.

Legally Silencing A Noisy Neighbor

CBS Philly

By Amy E. Feldman

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – What can you do – legally – about your noisy neighbors?

An 81-year-old man and his 71-year-old wife in Sweden were arrested for harassment last month after blaring the heavy metal band Iron Maiden’s song Afraid to Shoot Strangers in retaliation, they claim, for the noise made by their neighbors. No word if the music, blasted by the elderly couple until 4:00 in the morning through several speakers pointed at their neighbors house, was being played off an 8-track or cassette tape.

Even if you’re not cool enough to have an Iron Maiden you want to know: what are your legal rights if your neighbor’s noise is causing a nuisance?

If you live in an apartment and have a neighbor whose noise is driving you crazy, check your lease and require your landlord to uphold the rules for all tenants. Condo associations can…

Kemp, Puig Help Dodgers Win 6 Straight With 6-4 Win Over Phillies

CBS Los Angeles

  LOS ANGELES (AP) –– Rampaging rookie Yasiel Puig singled home the tying and go-ahead runs in the seventh inning, Andre Ethier had a two-run double, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 on Thursday night.

Greinke (4-3) struck out five over seven innings and allowed four runs on 12 hits, including solo homers by Domonic Brown and Chase Utley. Kenley Jansen got the last three outs for his seventh save in nine chances as Los Angeles won its sixth straight.

Puig was shaken up crashing into the right field auxiliary scoreboard while trying to track Utley’s ninth homer in the top of the seventh that gave the Phillies a 4-3 lead.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the bottom half against rookie reliever Justin De Fratus (2-2) without the benefit of a hit, and Puig slapped a two-out, 0-2 pitch to left field to put…
