School Campus Safety Experts to Combat Active Shooters

RyPul Threat Assessments School Campus Safety Experts to Combat Active Shooters

An Idea That Can Actually Save the Lives of Children at School

Oct. 28, 2017 - LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- With the number of active shootings on or near school campuses in the United States continuing at an alarming rate; expert security consultants in the field of protective security, product manufacturing, and school safety has decided to deliver a suite of physical protective products that have been tested and proven to stop bullets fired from multiple caliber weapons to include the AR-15 automatic rifle.



Mr. Warren the CEO of RyPul Threat Assessments states that “These random acts of violence are not going to stop and we are coming together in order to make a difference by protecting the lives of children on our campuses with our proven products, we have to do better for our children and educators, we are joining efforts to become a stronger force to deal with the problem of public shootings, as everyone deserves to a have a safe school or workplace for their kids and employees.”

These products are providing effective lifesaving coverage at this very moment according to Warren the CEO of RyPul Threat Assessments, Pulley also states “We may not be able to stop the violent acts but we can reduce the risk of death and protect our children, teachers, and employees from being hurt in the same way that the banking, food service and airlines industries protect their people: by placing them behind bullet-resistant protective barriers.”  The products have received a lot of media coverage and have been tested and demonstrated around the country to school systems, business owners, and residential home builders and have been favorably received.

Why Cant School Protect Kids From Active Shooters?

650 Billion Dollars a Year in Education Funding Why Cant School Protect Kids From Active Shooters?

LOS ANGELES - Feb. 22, 2016 - By RyPul Threat Assessments

Again one of the latest school shootings, February 12th at Independence High School in Glendale Arizona High School, proves once again that schools systems haven’t the slightest idea on how to improve school safety let alone how to implement the latest industrial products into the school systems to offer real life saving protective choices.  After travelling the United States over the past year and speaking to school district administrators, district security managers, school police officers and concerned parents groups, I have come to realize that they all want the same things, disagree on how to do it, hence nothing ever gets accomplished, yet the bullets continue to fly on our campuses and our children continue to die and be placed in harm’s way, simple to due to a lack of care, concern, forward thinking and ineptitude.

This latest tragedy is once again being reported by all the usual media sources across the country, and as usual after each and every one of these events, I see the same talking heads appearing on the local and national news programs congratulating the local police response, the local school administrators for their great reporting of the facts and I cringe at the out pouring of heartbreaking emotion by the family and friends of those killed in these senseless shootings, all the while knowing that there are common sense solutions in the marketplace at this very moment that can take the prospect of school safety and security to the next levels of protection.  

I have advocated for years the need for school systems to begin installing bullet and blast proof products into their standard school construction building plans or using planned building upgrades as the only real risk mitigation option to bullets being fired on or near school campuses on a daily basis. All the usual recommendation simply doesn’t work.

visit http://www.rypulassessments.com/ for details.

Now anytime I speak to administrators, teachers, politicians or even parents, the once line that rings true to them all, is that they are all against our schools looking to “militaristic”, and I had to really sit down and ask myself, after serving in the military on bases around the world just what they meant, and I came to the following conclusion.  It is that these stakeholders have no idea what they are truly talking about; they are all using a talking point to scare people into inaction. After studying schools safety protocols, 



I can report that schools are already armed, secured camps in their own rights. Schools already have armed police patrolling them, locked gates, metal detectors, some K-9 patrols, state of the art camera systems, bio-metric systems and badging capabilities, and from my experience with military bases they have all of the exact same protocols in place to limit access to its most sensitive areas.  The only difference being most buildings on military installations have some type of bullet resistant and blast protection installed it is most sensitive structures to protect its members when all of the above security protocols fail.

I am again repeating my call to all parents and students organizations, to pressure your local school systems into action and demand patented bullet resistant doors shields, protective glass products and specialty wireless school door locking systems, specifically designed for classroom protection and security.  

It is urgent that we get serious about saving the lives of children at school. Inaction kills.

Affordable Bullet Resistant School Protection Systems Available Now


LOS ANGELES - Dec. 17, 2015 -- With the number of school shootings continuing to rise at an alarming rate, parents are frightened and looking for help. We can’t let this phenomenon continue. You shouldn’t have to worry about your children at school every day.  RyPul Threat Assessments has identified a crucial step in curtailing school shootings and today announced their affordable Bullet Resistant School Protection System, designed specifically for classrooms.


The Bullet Resistant School Protection System was created specifically for classroom protection and security. The systems contain bullet resistant doors, shields, and specialty wireless school door locking mechanisms. According to Threat Protection Specialist, Warren Pulley, CEO of RyPul Threat Assessments, school districts have very little budget money. That’s why the Bullet Resistant System was created to be affordable.




“We may not be able to stop the violent acts, but we can certainly reduce the risk and protect our children and teachers. The recent armed attacks in San Bernardino, CA, as well as the threat to shoot students at several major school districts around Los Angeles and the country, continue to highlight the need for a change in strategy and physical protection. The time for talk is over. Decision makers need to act now to save lives.  More has to be done to bring awareness to the school districts, parents, and government officials. There are tangible solutions that will save countless lives. We have to do better for our children and educators,” said Pulley.




These bullet resistant products prevent bullets from handguns, shotguns and AR15's from penetrating school doors. These products have been tested and demonstrated around the country. Pulley states, “People will continue to talk about the epidemic. Meanwhile, kids will continue to die. Protection systems created by my manufacturing partners with input from school safety advocates are available now.  I’ve tested these systems for myself and find them to be simple, extraordinary, and effective.”



School districts across the country can have access to these products now. Parents should demand their school systems install them immediately. The time to act is now. We can’t wait another second for our children.

AQAP’s New Call To Lone Wolves To 'Assassinate' Economic Personalities, Wealthy Entrepreneurs, Workplace Employees

Public Health And Safety AQAP’s New Call To Lone Wolves To 'Assassinate' Economic Personalities, Wealthy Entrepreneurs, Workplace Employees

By: Anthony Kimery, Editor-in-Chief
09/09/15 

Bookmark and Share

Only days before the anniversary of the 9/11 attack, “Assassination Operations” is the focus of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) latest issue of its English-language magazine Inspire, which targets Muslims and those newly converted to radical Islam.

Among the articles is a military analysis of the January 2015 attack on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo; instructions for making a home-made grenade; and "Assassinations Field Tactics,” which lists 10 well-known Americans as targets of jihad.

All Western targets on AQAP’s hit list are divided into “economic personalities” and “wealthy entrepreneurs and company owners,” among whom is former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Robert James Shiller, Charlie and David Koch, Sam Walton, Sheldon Adelson, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Larry Ellison and Michael Bloomberg.

Previous issues of Inspire had already suggested Bernanke and Gates as targets for jihadi assassination.

Homeland Security Today also is one of five media quoted in a two-page spread in the latest Inspire titled,Inspire Reactions: Government & Media Responses.

Among the articles in the latest Inspire are, Some Things Are Too Beautiful to be Forgotten: Will We Ever Experience Such a Sight Once More? (the headline that opens a two-page spread photo of a collapsing World Trade Center building); Remembering BostonDid You Know that a TSA Security Officer is More Likely to Confiscate a Water Bottle than a Bomb; and, Assassination Operations.

"We present to you, a model to follow, and an assassination list which will help us achieve strategic goals,” AQAP said. “We believe that placing this feasible program to Lone Mujahideen will allow us to achieve great goals in this war. Whoever understands the components of the American economy knows the importance these personalities play in the revival of the America Economy. The assassination of these economic personalities or their migration from America or the mere fact that they live in insecurity, will later on bring instability to the American economy."

“One central theme from all Inspire magazines which are directed to Al Qaeda sympathizers in the West has been for calls to do lone wolf attacks,” Homeland Security Today was told by Steven Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which monitors jihadi social media.

“In fact,” Stalinsky said,” this can be traced to the June 3, 2011 seminal Al Sahab video staring Adam Gadahn, ‘Do Not Rely on Others, Take [the Task] Upon Yourself.’ The video was devoted to the topic of Al Jihad Al Fardi ('individual jihad'), namely jihad operations performed by a single individual or by a small group.”

“From that point on,” Stalinsky told Homeland Security Today, “Al Qaeda called on Muslim communities in the West to attack from home.”

Gadahn was an American from California who joined AQAP and became an operative, cultural interpreter, spokesman and media advisor who’d been placed on the Bureau of Diplomatic Security Rewards for Justice Program list of wanted criminals killed in a 2008 US drone strike.

Gadahn had proselytized that, “Muslims in the West have to remember that they are perfectly placed to play an important and decisive part in the jihad against the Zionists and the Crusaders, and to do major damage to the enemies of Islam, waging war on the religion, sacred places and things, and brethren. This is a golden opportunity and a blessing from Allah. The way to show one’s appreciation and thanks for this blessing is to rush to discharge one’s duty to his ummah, and fight on its behalf, with everything at his disposal.”

“And in the West,” Gadahn exhorted the willing, “you’ve got a lot at your disposal … Anyone who is thinking of going forth to the arenas of jihad today has to be aware of the difficulties and dangers that he might face, and that in the end, things might not turn out as he had wished. But by the grace of Allah, the enemies’ interests are today spread all over the place and are easily accessible, as the leaked American State Department cable on critical foreign dependencies makes crystal-clear.”

“So, the opportunity to carry out the divine obligation of fighting the enemies of Allah is available to anyone who has the will and determination, regardless of where he might be,” Gadahn continued.

Stalinsky noted that, “Since this video, and especially with the advent of ISIS and the explosion of social media usage by jihadis, there have been numerous successful and failed attacks in the West. Fourteen years after 9/11, this has become part of life in the West, and proves the calls by Al Qaeda have been heard.”

And that’s what keeps the US Intelligence Community (IC) awake at night, IC counterterrorism officials told Homeland Security Today. With more US-based jihadist terror cases in 2015 than in any full year since 9/11, and the number of US terrorist cases involving homegrown violent jihadists having escalated from 38 in July 2010, to 124 today -- more than a three-fold increase in just five years -- officials said the “persistent” calls for lone wolf jihadists to kill individuals on jihadi assassination lists “will likely provoke” new lone wolf or small cadre attacks.

“The cumulative call to jihad against specific persons, and instructions on how to try to do it, seems to parallel the increase in assassinations and attempts, and jihad attacks in general suggested by AQAP,” one of the officials stated.

US counterterrorism intelligence officials have told Homeland Security Today they “have every reason to believe” Islamist jihadists – all Muslims or individuals and small cells of individuals who’ve recently converted to the Muslim faith and radicalized by online jihadist propaganda -- or recruiters at the Mosques they attend -- are believed to be planning “far more spectacular attacks in the US” than the attempted attack in Texas, at which time officials acknowledged there may be hundreds, if not thousands of radicalized individuals in the US -- some undoubtedly in direct contact with jihadists overseas.


Meanwhile, the Department of Defense -- not just a few of whose senior leaders are named in a recent ISIS “hit list” -- ordered all military installations to “Force Protection Condition (FPCON) Bravo,” which means “an increased and more Predictable Terrorist Threat Activity exists. Specific information suggests probable violence,” and that “extra precaution is appropriate to deter terrorist planning.”

"We have a general concern, obviously, that ISI[S] is focusing on the uniformed military and law enforcement," Comey told reporters.

US Northern Command Commander (NORTHCOM) Admiral William Gortney, who oversees all US military installations in the United States, ordered the FPCON.

NORTHCOM spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said, "We have the same concern about the potential threat posed by violent homegrown extremists.”

Last March, Homeland Security Today reported that as 80 percent of Americans being polled were saying ISIS poses a serious threat to the United States, ISIS supporters were finalizing an English language hit-list of 100 US military personnel, including their photos and addresses. The list -- which Homeland Security Today reviewed -- began to be circulated on jihadi forums and social media on March 21.

The hit list was much like the hit list Al Qaeda supporters circulated on jihadist social media sites in June 2011 which Homeland Security Today first reported. The difference is the current list provides the home addresses of most of the service members on the new list, including top officers in very important command positions.

Eleven of the nation’s top military leaders were among 58 past and present military, corporate and civilian officials identified by members of the Al Qaeda-linked Ansar Al Mujahedeen jihadist forum as infidels who should be murdered, according to a jihadist “hit list” that accompanied a June 6, 2011 Florida fusion center bulletin.

“As in previous issues, this issue [of Inspire] contains an ‘Open Source Jihad’ section which contains specific instructions on how to carry out attacks in the West so that Muslims can ‘train at home instead of risking a dangerous travel abroad,” MEMRI said. “This feature in this issue of the magazine focuses on lone wolf operations, because, it says, they are less expensive to carry out. It also reveals that there are future plans for further articles dedicated to ‘a complete comprehensive assassination program appropriate for a Lone Mujahid operations in upcoming issues of the magazine.’”

“Explaining in depth about choosing a target, the article states that military or security personnel targets inside the US would require multiple operations on a larger scale,” MEMRI stated in an analysis of the current issue of Inspire. “Instead, it suggests smaller targets such as economic magnates, since this could help achieve the group's goals over a shorter period of time. It states:"
"Selecting a target for assassination is divided into two categories; assassinating a target in order to achieve either strategic or tactical goals. As for us, we will be concentrating on operations that will yield strategic goals, directly affecting our war. As for tactical targets, such as assassinating military or security personnel inside America, its resulting effects do not surface unless after executing many operations of the like. And this cannot be realized except with the existence of a Jihadi organization inside America. And it requires a long period of time to execute these operations and requires other independent elements e.g. the masses and population to back you up in order to achieve success. That is why it is necessary for us to concentrate on targeting prominent personalities in order to achieve great goals in a short period."


The magazine provides detailed instructions on how to select a target and carry out an attack.

In the new Inspire article, Assassination Operations, jihadists are provided instructions on how to collect information on a target, generate a plan, prepare for an operation and how to execute an operation. It also provides step-by-step instructions on how to make a deadly timed hand grenade.

Another article, Charlie Hebdo Military Analysis, analyzed the stages involved in the operation. The first method listed is lone jihad, and explained that Inspire was instrumental in the attack on Charlie Hebdothat killed Stephane Charbonnier -- the editor and cartoonist among the 10 journalists killed in the attack on the satirical newspaper’s Paris offices. Charbonnier had been listed as a target.
 
AQAP said the successful attack on Charlie Hebdo was because it had placed targeted persons on a wanted list that was distributed to Lone Mujahideen, adding, “This had no direct connection with the jihadi organization except by means of inspiring and guiding Lone Mujahideen. Inspire magazine was used as the medium to distribute this list. One of the wanted criminals on the list was Stephane Charbonnier."

AQAP takes credit for the operation and explained the group selected and trained Said Koachi, one of the radicalized Islamist jihadists who attacked Charlie Hebdo.

With Islamist jihadi attacks rising, counterterrorism officials who spoke to Homeland Security Today on background because they’re not authorized to discuss classified information, said they believe AQAP strategically timed release of the latest issue of Inspire “while the iron is hot, so to speak,” as one stated.

Perhaps coincidentally, the Islamic State (ISIS) simultaneously released the latest issue of their magazine,Dabiq, which largely deals with the ideology and practices of jihad and sharia law.

Interestingly, just like Inspire did in quoting coverage of AQAP and Inspire by five media -- includingHomeland Security Today -- the latest Dabiq reprints the article, Islamic State is Winning, America Must Soon Use its One Remaining Option, by Michael Scheuer, the CIA’s former head of its Usama Bin Laden unit. Through the magazine, ISIS also offers a Norwegian and Chinese prisoner for sale in “a limited time offer.”

Connecticut ranks high in number of school threats

Three weeks after Connecticut was ranked as the state with the 10th most threats to schools between August and December 2014, Hamden High School evacuated its corridors Friday morning in response to a bomb threat.
Hamden Police Department arrested 18-year-old Dyshawn Silva, who called the police Friday morning to say there was a bomb in the school. The Hamden police did not locate any bombs in the school, and classes resumed Friday afternoon, the HPD reported on their Twitter account on Friday. Silva has been charged with first-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace and falsely reporting an incident.
Ken Trump, president of National School Safety and Security Services, directed a study on the number of threats to schools across the country, calling the national rise of violent school threats an “epidemic.” His report was released on Feb. 9.
“School threats are a fast growing problem,” he said in a press release. “They send fear and panic through a community.”
His reports said school threats have increased by 158 percent since the same survey was conducted in 2013.
He added in an email to the News that the quick spread of communication via social media is presenting school administrators with added challenges in dealing with school threats. Social media can create widespread anxiety that puts intense pressure on a school’s administration to manage not only the threat but also the communication with students, staff and parents.
Thirty-seven percent of the threats Trump studied were sent electronically, and 28 percent of those communications were sent using social media.
According to Trump’s report, high schools received 70 percent of threats, middle schools received 18 percent and elementary schools received 10 percent. Yet, despite the smaller percentage of elementary schools that receive threats nationwide, the discussion of school threats in the state of Connecticut is focused around the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.
On Feb. 12 — two years and two months after 26 people were killed by a gunman at the elementary school — a task force released a report analyzing the shooting and offering a list of recommendations to legislators.
“The initial, and entirely natural, reaction to a tragedy like the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School is to consider steps that would make it virtually impossible for such a violent event to occur at a school ever again,” the report reads.
Dora Schriro, the commissioner of the state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, told the Connecticut Post that the state is ready to invest in gathering more data on school threats.
As of March 2015, over $43 million of state funding has been allocated to ensuring improved school safety since the events of December 2012. Gov. Dannel Malloy has expanded the School Security Grant Program. Since November 2013, funding has increased to provide reimbursement for school districts purchasing security infrastructure including surveillance cameras, penetration resistant vestibules, ballistic glass, panic alarms and computer-controlled electronic locks.
“It is unfortunate we have to prepare for these situations, but a well-crafted plan is essential if we are to minimize risks to the lives and safety of students, teachers and school staff during times of crisis,” Malloy said in a December 2014 press release.

The Evolution and Downfall Of Our Police Departments

By Warren Pulley, CEO, RyPul Threat Assessments
Since the early 1700s, populations in the United States have had some form of “Night Watch”, “Town Watch” or Constable to help provide gaps in protection that the locally armed citizenry could not do. Early Americans did not depend on their police departments to protect them from each and every ill in the society of the day; they instead wanted their police officers to maintain the class systems that were in place with early settlers and help with the protection of private property when the citizenry could not.
The use of police-type organizations such as the Pinkerton's, the Mint Police, US Parks Police, and U.S. Marshall's helped establish law and order in the early days, and provided the established respect for law enforcement officers and the dangers they faced in our untamed early country and westward settlements.
Fast forward to the 21st Century, and take a long and hard look at any police or sheriff’s department in this country and you will find it under siege. And when I say under siege, I mean just that.  They have constant pressure applied to them by race-baiting attorneys and news organizations that fail to do their due diligence and seek the truth of any given police situation.  Internal Affairs departments – that in their haste to calm what is seen as racial tension – go after law abiding, policy minding police officers with a vengeance for the sake of perceived fairness, along with the Monday morning quarterbacking public that gobbles up the downfall of one of its protectors with a pizza and a soda.
I spent the better part of 12 years patrolling the streets of Los Angeles in the divisions of Rampart and Southeast, and constantly walked the line of being a perceived racist cop.  Although I was a black police officer, I watched untold numbers of officers adopt the drive and wave approach to police work due to the harsh, unbalanced and out of whack internal investigations that could and did derail their careers – often times based on a mis-perception of a police officer’s authority and the department’s lack of ability and unwillingness to explain such to the general public.
The downfall of our police departments will be swift and permanent, and will leave a whole class of people defenseless and unprotected if, as Americans, we don’t collectively take steps to defend our officers when they are in the right.  They have the absolute authority to conduct the kind of policing they are sworn to do, and call out any officer that is failing to protect and serve citizens with the zeal that they would protect their own families with.
Let’s get something straight, not every black person shot by a white officer is a victim.  There are black males that carry guns illegally on our streets, and they do fight with police officers when confronted with arrest – and then look to illicit the sympathy of the general public by crying foul when injured or killed by the police for their aggressive and illegal actions.  This exact chain of events occurs in the white community also, but the visceral, negative reaction to the same events in different neighborhoods is the main cause of the downfall of our police departments.
Mark my words, if we as a society continue to scapegoat our police, prop up our most vile criminals and violators, and scatter reasonable discussion and discourse to the wind, then we may wake up one morning to find the disbanding of police departments nationwide and the return to self-preservation, self-protection and self-governance. How many of you are really ready for that?
Warren Pulley is a military veteran, former law enforcement officer, and current CEO of RyPul Threat Assessments (a global threat assessment company).

The door shield weighs 55 pounds and is 3/8ths of an inch thick and made of fiberglass. It's function is to stop bullets from penetrating classroom doors. "I firmly believe that we will be retro-fitting our facilities at this point," Choctaw Nation Commodities Manager Boyd Miller said.

The tribe brought in business owner and tribe member, Sage Dyer in to demonstrate the product. She is the founder of Safer Schools for America, and the inventor of this door shield.

"I'm a mom," Dyer said when asked what was her inspiration to invent this product.

During the demonstration, shooters fired rounds from a .40 and .44 caliber pistols, a 12-gauge shotgun, and an AR 556 rifle at the door. Only the rifle bullets were able to puncture the door.

Along with the shield, Dyer's company also showed off its locking system, and bullet proof glass.


Armendariz said she sees the purchase of these shields as a service to the tribe's members. "We want to make sure that our children and our senior citizens are in the safest environment possible," she said. "We do have some rural areas where unfortunately getting security and keeping things safe is difficult."

Big space things come in small packages

ALASA GETTING CLOSER TO DELIVERING BIG THINGS IN SMALL PACKAGES TO SPACE

Progress on several potentially breakthrough technologies could pave the way for much cheaper, faster and easier small-satellite launches

DARPA’s Airborne Launch Assist Space Access program (ALASA) seeks to propel 100-pound satellites into low Earth orbit (LEO) within 24 hours of call-up, all for less than $1 million per launch. The program is moving ahead with rigorous testing of new technologies that one day could enable revolutionary satellite launch systems that provide more affordable, routine and reliable access to space.   DARPA’s Airborne Launch Assist Space Access program (ALASA) seeks to propel 100-pound satellites into low Earth orbit (LEO) within 24 hours of call-up, all for less than $1 million per launch. The program is moving ahead with rigorous testing of new technologies that one day could enable revolutionary satellite launch systems that provide more affordable, routine and reliable access to space.  Through its Airborne Launch Assist Space Access (ALASA) program, DARPA has been developing new concepts and architectures to get small satellites into orbit more economically on short notice. Bradford Tousley, director of DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office, provided an update on ALASA today at the 18th Annual Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s Commercial Space Transportation Conference in Washington, D.C. Tousley discussed several key accomplishments of the program to date, including successful completion of Phase 1 design, selection of the Boeing Company as prime contractor for Phase 2 of the program, which includes conducting 12 orbital test launches of an integrated prototype system.

“We’ve made good progress so far toward ALASA’s ambitious goal of propelling 100-pound satellites into low Earth orbit (LEO) within 24 hours of call-up, all for less than $1 million per launch,” Tousley said. “We’re moving ahead with rigorous testing of new technologies that we hope one day could enable revolutionary satellite launch systems that provide more affordable, routine and reliable access to space.”  Launches of satellites for the Department of Defense (DoD) or other government agencies require scheduling years in advance for the few available slots at the nation's limited number of launch locations. This slow, expensive process is causing a bottleneck in placing essential space assets in orbit. The current ALASA design envisions launching a low-cost, expendable launch vehicle from conventional aircraft. Serving as a reusable first stage, the plane would fly to high altitude and release the launch vehicle, which would carry the payload to the desired location.  “ALASA seeks to overcome the limitations of current launch systems by streamlining design and manufacturing and leveraging the flexibility and re-usability of an air-launched system,” said Mitchell Burnside Clapp, DARPA program manager for ALASA. “We envision an alternative to ride-sharing for satellites that enables satellite owners to launch payloads from any location into orbits of their choosing, on schedules of their choosing, on a launch vehicle designed specifically for small payloads.”  ALASA had a successful Phase 1, which resulted in three viable system designs. In March 2014, DARPA awarded Boeing the prime contract for Phase 2 of ALASA.

Because reducing cost per flight to $1 million presents such a challenge, DARPA is attacking the cost equation on multiple fronts. The Phase 2 design incorporates commercial-grade avionics and advanced composite structures. Perhaps the most daring technology ALASA seeks to implement is a new high-energy monopropellant, which aims to combine fuel and oxidizer into a single liquid. If successful, the monopropellant would enable simpler designs and reduced manufacturing and operation costs compared to traditional designs that use two liquids, such as liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen.  ALASA also aims to reduce infrastructure costs by using runways instead of fixed vertical launch sites, automating operations and avoiding unnecessary services. Phase 1 of the program advanced toward that goal by making progress on three breakthrough enabling technologies:

Mission-planning software that would streamline current processes for satellite launches Space-based telemetry that would use existing satellites instead of ground-based facilities to monitor the ALASA vehicle Automatic flight-termination systems that would assess real-time conditions during flight and end it if necessary DARPA plans to continue developing these capabilities in Phase 2 and, once they’re sufficiently mature, intends to eventually transition them to government and/or commercial partners for wider use in the space community.  Pending successful testing of the new monopropellant, the program plan includes 12 orbital launches to test the integrated ALASA prototype system. Currently, DARPA plans to conduct the first ALASA flight demonstration test in late 2015 and the first orbital launch test in the first half of 2016. Depending on test results, the program would conduct up to 11 further demonstration launches through summer 2016.

If successful, ALASA would provide convenient, cost-effective launch capabilities for the growing government and commercial markets for small satellites. “Small satellites in the ALASA payload class represent the fastest-growing segment of the space launch market, and DARPA expects this growth trend to continue as small satellites become increasingly more capable,” Burnside Clapp said. “The small-satellite community is excited about having dedicated launch opportunities, and there should be no difficulty finding useful payloads.”

Kill list found at elementary school

LAKE ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)
The Wentzville School District responded to questions about a list that was discovered at Green Tree Elementary last Tuesday.
According to those with relatives attending the school in the district, an 11-year-old allegedly saw a fellow classmate with what’s being referred to as a friends and enemies list at the school. FOX 2 spoke to family members of the young child, they didn’t want to go on camera, but did say they were worried about the fact that some parents were concerned because they were not notified of the incident until that Friday.
FOX 2 contacted the district about the incident and a spokesperson released the following statement:
“Last week there was a ‘friends and enemies’ list of student names found at Green Tree Elementary. The principal contacted local law enforcement immediately, and after a thorough investigation it was determined that the list was not a credible threat. The principal and counselor contacted the parents of the students included on the list, and informed them of the incident. Student discipline for these types of incidents is covered by the district`s student misconduct and disciplinary consequences regulation.”
Family members also say they hope the disciplinary action is strong enough to send the message that incidents of this nature will not be tolerated in the future.

Third-grader sexually assaulted 5-7 times by classmate, official says

RIVERSIDE: Third-grader sexually assaulted 5-7 times by classmate, official says

A third-grade student at a Riverside elementary school sexually assaulted a classmate five to seven times since the pair was in second grade, according to a district spokesperson. The incidents happened at John Adams Elementary School in class when teachers might not see, such as while watching movies, and in the bathroom, said Jacquie Paul, spokesperson for the Riverside Unified School District. The assailant and the victim were both boys, though the nature of their relationship — whether they were friends or rivals — was not disclosed, Paul said. “At this point we don’t believe there are other victims,” but officials are exploring the possibility, Paul stated.  A letter went home to parents on Wednesday, March 19, stating what happened. Also, school officials are holding a meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday night, March 20, to discuss the situation. The meeting is open to the public.  School psychologists were on the campus to help students who need it, and the principal stood at the front of the school as parents dropped off their children in the morning.

“I want parents to know everything’s OK,” said the principal, Paul DeFoe.

Officials learned about the assaults on Monday, March 17, when a “small group” of students during an after-school program called HEARTS reported it to the coordinator on duty, the district spokeswoman said.  That official went straight to the principal, who happened to be on campus working late. He immediately contacted law enforcement, Paul said.  The Riverside Police Department and child protective services are investigating as well as the district, which has launched an internal investigation.  The school has taken disciplinary action on the offending student. Paul was unable to say what those actions were, but she said the student was no longer present on the campus.  The two teachers who may have been present when the assaults happened were placed on paid administrative leave while officials investigate, Paul said.  Police officials were unable to say whether the parents of the offending student were suspected of any wrong-doing that may have influenced the boy to act as he did, according to police Lt. Val Graham.  “We’re investigating every angle,” Graham said. “It’s routine for detectives to look at any reason for why something like this could have occurred.”

The incident shocked the staff at Adams Elementary, a small, tightly knit school of only 555 students, officials said.  “This is a first for us and it’s a very sad, difficult situation,” Paul said.  Parents dropping their children off Thursday morning said the incident has caused them to talk to their children about sex crimes.  “I talked to them just this morning,” said Joe Pule about his two daughters who attend the school. “If somebody touches you or something, tell somebody right away.” For some parents, the incident raised questions about school safety. “The teachers are not aware of the students,” said Jennifer Gomez, whose child goes to kindergarden at Adams. “Were they not watching them? They’re supposed to be taking care of them.”

On Wednesday when the assault was reported on the evening news it caused a rush of cars to the elementary school to pick children up from their after-school activities, said Louis Clark who lives next door to the campus. “You should have seen the parents tearing into (the parking lot) to pick up those kids,” he said.

Al Qaeda Magazine Calls For Car Bombings In U.S., Specifically In NYC

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) —

The latest edition of al Qaeda‘s English-language online magazine urges its readers to attack the United States with car bombs and includes a photo of Times Square. The terrorist organization’s magazine, Inspire, specifically mentions New York, Los Angeles, Washington and Chicago as preferred targets, WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb reported. NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Wednesday the website calls for its readers to act as “lone wolf” terrorists. “It certainly is an issue that we will continue to stay focused on,” Bratton said. “It is a magazine that is very widely read by that world.” The magazine also advises potential terrorists to attack places holding lots of people, CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported. “As for the field  target for the car bomb,” the magazine advises, “you have places flooded with individuals e.g. Sports events in which tens of thousands attend, election campaigns, festivals and other gathering(s). The important thing is that you target people and not buildings.” “This is typical of al Qaeda’s targeting, which is to kill as many people as possible,” said John Miller, the NYPD’s deputy police commissioner for intelligence.

Al Qaeda Magazine Calls For Car Bombings In U.S., New YorkWCBS 880's Rich Lamb reports.

Bratton noted the city has a large number of officers dedicated to counterterrorism and that every plot against New York City since 9/11 has been foiled. Miller told CBS News the magazine edition is “one-stop shopping for an amateur terrorist.” “What it talks about is targeting … specific places, specific targets, specific events, but it goes beyond that call, and it says, ‘and by the way, here is a simple set of instructions for a car bomb that you can make with essentially, you know, a trip to a big-box hardware store and a couple of chemicals,’” said Miller, a former CBS News senior correspondent. Inspire is the same magazine where prosecutors say Jose Pimentel, a Dominican immigrant who was raised in the U.S., found the article “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom,” which he used to begin building pipe bombs that he planned to plant around the city. He pleaded guilty last month to a terrorism charge and, under a plea deal, will likely serve 16 years in prison.

The Inspire website includes a letter from editor Yahya Ibrahim, which reads, in part: “Many Feisal Shahzads are residing inside America, and all they need is the knowledge of how to make car bombs. They are all yearning to fulfill their duty of Jihad. … The American government was unable to protect its citizens from pressure cooker bombs in backpacks, I wonder if they are ready to stop car bombs!” Miller said the NYPD will use the intelligence provided by the magazine to deploy heavily armed groups at sensitive, high-profile locations with no notice, which would “keep somebody trying to make a plan off balance.” “One way, you can read Inspire magazine as some kind of sign of failure, which is al Qaeda central has now diminished to the point that it has to put out this wide net and say, ‘Can anybody do anything because as an organization we’re not effective that way?’” Miller said. “Or you can flip that coin and say, they’ve now gone from being an effective terrorist organization to being a narrative that gets out to millions of people,” he added. “The Boston Marathon bombers, Jose Pimentel — you can pick your person who has been picked up in one of these plots — usually never made contact with al Qaeda, but many of them got their plans and plots from Inspire magazine.”
