TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES | Sleepy US town on cusp of space flight

InterAksyon.com The online news portal of TV5 TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES, New Mexico — After passing the sign reading “Danger Falling Aliens,” New Mexico artist Roy Lohr and dog Yoda lead visitors to the “Spaceport” he has built in his backyard out of wine bottles and cement. It’s no wonder the lanky 69-year-old embraces the real Spaceport America in his town’s backyard, the world’s first space base built expressly for commercial launches and soon-to-be site of the first space flights with Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. “It is hard for locals to realize the impact it is going to have, but it is slow coming and this is a tiny little town,” said Lohr

Rand Paul considering expanded whistleblower laws for contractors

Orlando, Florida (CNN) Speaking to a libertarian-leaning audience Sunday about ex-contractor Edward Snowden, Sen. Rand Paul said hes thinking about ways to “expand the whistleblower statute to government contractors.” Weve got so many millions of government contractors that when they see something wrong, they should be able to report it without repercussions, he said in a live video appearance to a Florida conference hosted by the Campaign for Liberty. The libertarian-leaning senator from Kentucky, whos repeatedly said he has mixed emotions on the issue, has taken some heat from some in the libertarian base.

GM field trials: Regulator proposes but most states decline

The Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) has approved field trials for 11 crop varieties but that clears only the first hurdle in the way of genetically-modified crops. Another major hitch could come from state governments, most of which do not seem to be in a mood to give their go-ahead anytime soon.
