Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/03/2015 - 11:13
By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Air Force's fiscal 2016 budget plan earmarks $7.1 billion for space programs, including a 10th Global Positioning System III satellite by Lockheed Martin Corp, and sets the stage for future competition for such satellites. Lockheed won the contract to build GPS-III satellites in 2008, beating out Boeing Co, which had built earlier GPS satellites. The program has since run into delays due to technical challenges with a key sensor built by Exelis Inc. The Air Force had no immediate details on the potential competition, how many satellites it would include, or when the process would begin.

California man convicted in 'revenge porn' case

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/03/2015 - 10:56
By Marty Graham SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - A San Diego man who prosecutors say ran a "revenge porn" website featuring nude pictures of women often posted by jilted ex-lovers was convicted on Monday of identity theft and extortion charges, prosecutors said. Kevin Boellart, 28, was found guilty on 27 felony counts by a San Diego County Superior jury after 2-1/2 days of deliberation, according to the California Attorney General's Office, which prosecuted the case. Boellart was arrested in 2013, shortly after Governor Jerry Brown signed a first-in-the-nation law targeting so-called revenge porn websites. Last week, the Federal Trade Commission banned a revenge porn site operator from the web in the first federal civil enforcement action against a similar site.
