California Senate Bans Warrantless Drone Surveillance – 27 August 2014

RT logoThe California State Senate has approved a bill that will drastically restrict how law enforcement agencies from San Diego to San Francisco can use unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, for policing purposes.

On Tuesday, the Senate voted 25-8 in favor of the legislation, AB 1327, setting it on course to go before the State Assembly once more for final approval of new amendments tacked on since lawmakers in that chamber last saw the bill in late January and passed it by a margin of 59-5.

Should the Senate give the bill another go-ahead, then the legislation will next likely land on the desk of California Governor Jerry Brown, a democrat, to be signed into law. Once enacted, it will limit law enforcement agencies from conducting drone surveillance by forcing police departments to obtain warrants before putting UAVs in the air, except in certain circumstances, like fires and hostage situations. Additionally, any footage recorded by these aircraft would have to be destroyed by the agencies that collect them within one year.

UK Not Ready To Join US Air Campaign Against ISIS – 27 August 2014

RT logoUK government sources have expressed surprise at US media reports indicating that Britain is willing to take part in an air campaign alongside the US against Islamic State (IS) fighters in Syria.

The British response followed a report in The New York Times, citing unnamed US officials as saying that Britain and Australia would be willing to join an air campaign against forces of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Iraq and Syria.

Russia May Extend Visa And MasterCard Deadline To Jan 1 – 27 August 2014

RT logoRussia’s Finance Ministry is ready to extend by two months the deadline for international payment systems Visa and MasterCard to set up domestic processing for Russian card holders, according to Deputy Minister Alexei Moiseev.

We will follow the schedule. We will analyze the situation, and if we see that they are not making it on time even though they have done everything possible – then we will consider this possibility (of extending the deadline),” Moiseev told a news conference on Wednesday.

Under the current law there is a legal possibility to extend the deadline to January 1, said the deputy minister, but that is undesirable, as the Ministry of Finance should “ensure the continuity of the transaction as soon as possible.”

The payment systems lack some functionality with online trading, but “its share is around 1.5 percent of all transactions,” Moiseev added.

Europe To Depend On Russian Gas For At Least A Decade – Fitch – 27 August 2014

RT logoEurope will remain heavily reliant on Russian gas for at least until the 2020s and potentially much longer due to the lack of an alternative, according to a report from Fitch Ratings.

The substitution of Russian gas is not expected, given the weak prospects for shale gas production, the lack of available imported liquefied natural gas (LNG) and the absence of significant pipeline projects in Europe which are independent from Russia, the rating agency says in the report released on Tuesday.

Any attempt to improve energy security by reducing European reliance on Russia would require either a significant reduction in overall gas demand, or a big increase in alternative sources of supply, but neither of these appears likely,” Fitch said in the report.

At best Europe could avoid significantly increasing its gas purchases from Russia, but Fitch’s analysis shows that in the long term the EU demand for gas will only increase. An average of 1.3 percent consumption growth per year is expected over the next 15 years, driven by economies’ recovery and the supremacy of gas fired electricity generation over coal and nuclear power.
