Daily Voting News For January 26, 2007

Daily Voting News For January 26, 2007


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

According to an article in the Albany [NY] Times Union, Ciber has decided to give to the NY State Board of Elections, under the threat of subpoena, paperwork that shows why they were denied interim accreditation by the EAC. Even as the EAC obfuscates and stonewalls all efforts to get this paperwork, Ciber turned it over to officials yesterday. According to the article the paperwork shows that Ciber was understaffed and failed to correctly document its testing. What is the EAC hiding? Is it that both Executive Director Wilkey and Commissioner Davidson served together on the same National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) board that had previously certified Ciber’s work? A board that had an “ex-officio” member, Shawn Southworth, who is the only Ciber staff? // Then today the EAC, having been shown-up by Ciber, posted all of their documents on their website. The documents include a letter from the EAC to Ciber, dated today, that clearly chides Ciber for providing the documents to New York. The documents can all be found here LINK...

Gordon Campbell: On The Saudi Oil Refinery Crisis

So the US and the Saudis claim to have credible evidence that those Weapons of Oil Destruction came from Iran, their current bogey now that Saddam Hussein is no longer available. Evidently, the world has learned nothing from the invasion of Iraq in 2003 when dodgy US intel was wheeled out to justify the invasion of Iraq, thereby giving birth to ISIS and causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

Gordon Campbell: On China And Hong Kong (And Boris)

In the circumstances, yesterday’s move by Lam to scrap – rather than merely suspend – the hated extradition law that first triggered the protests three months ago, seems like the least she can do. It may also be too little, too late. More>>

ALSO:

Dave Hansford on The Dig: Whose Biodiversity Is It Anyway?

The DOC-led draft Biodiversity Strategy seeks a “shared vision.” But there are more values and views around wildlife than there are species. How can we hope to agree on the shape of Aotearoa’s future biota? More>>

ALSO:

There Is A Field: Reimagining Biodiversity In Aotearoa

We are in a moment of existential peril, with interconnected climate and biodiversity crises converging on a global scale to drive most life on Earth to the brink of extinction… These massive challenges can, however, be reframed as a once in a lifetime opportunity to fundamentally change how humanity relates to nature and to each other.
