16 injured in Yosemite bus crash

Sunday, 14 April 2013 09:16 Published in National News

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a tour bus has crashed near Yosemite National Park and 16 people are hurt, but their injuries aren't serious.

The California Highway Patrol says the bus was about 40 miles south of the park when the accident occurred around 6 p.m. Saturday.

The patrol's Merced dispatch office described it as a minor injury crash, and said the 16 people were taken to local hospitals.

The office says that the bus was carrying 17 people, including a driver, when it went off the road and over and embankment near local road 630.

No more information was immediately available.

Conceal weapon registry fuels driver's license fued

Sunday, 14 April 2013 09:15 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The way Missouri processes concealed weapons permits has fueled the fire in Republican lawmakers' fight over the state's new driver's license procedures.

Missouri appears to be the only state to have concealed weapons endorsements printed on driver's licenses. Permit holders can choose to have the endorsement printed on the license or on a separate card issued by the Revenue Department.

In most other states, county sheriffs or police issue the concealed weapons permits. Some states don't require a permit at all to carry a concealed weapon.

The department began scanning applicants' concealed weapons permits and other documents in December when it switched licensing protocols. Republicans say the department could share that information with the federal government or a private company. Revenue department officials deny that information is being shared.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A discovery made by two Washington University scientists could play a role in preventing credit card fraud.

Marcel Muller and Ron Indeck were attempting to shrink bits of data onto a hard drive in the mid-1990s when they learned that magnetic media has what amounts to a fingerprint.

Tiny signals are present on the magnetic medium that comprises both hard drives and the strips on the back of credit cards. If the unique fingerprint on those strips is compared to fingerprints in a database, fraud can be detected.

California-based MagTek has adopted the technology, seeding the market with millions of card readers that can detect the fingerprints. The company's chief executive says the technology just needs to be "turned on" and used.
