Declassified Government Documents
Declassified Government Documents About Declassified Documents | Security Classification | Guides | FOIA Information | Collections at UC Berkeley | Internet Collections and Indexes | Presidential Libraries About Declassified Documents Documents may be classified for many reasons - issues of national security or privacy. a highly-publicized document is published as a part of an investigation. As there are no clear patterns of publication for most declassified documents, it falls to the researcher interested in a document that is declassified to research which agency created the document, who may have researched the document originally, and where it might be now. Security Classification Executive Order 12958 (Classified National Security Information, April 17, 1995) prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information. The government has had many reviews of security classification. Guides United States intelligence : an encyclopedia. Related:  Process Après démocratie: mise en oeuvre - after democracyknow this

Cryptome The Art of Compromise: Scrum and Project Governance - The Architect Insider The concepts of agility and project governance are not fundamentally opposed. Each is an attempt to improve the finished product. Scrum strives to do this through close collaboration and the short inspect-and-adapt cycles of the timeboxed sprints. Project governance strives to do it by what we might call inspect-and-approve (or reject) checkpoints in which the product or project is compared to a set of desirable attributes. However, while pursuing similar goals, Scrum and project governance take entirely different routes to achieving those goals. Negotiate and set expectations up front. Fit your reporting to current expectations. Invite them into your process. Reference a success. It's one thing to look at agile software development in a test tube; it's another to experience it in the real world. Because few organizations will go so far initially as to completely revamp their current approaches to governance, teams need to work with their organization's non-agile governance.

The National Security Archive Paper and Pencil Space Combat Game I played this with my classmates in Grade 6, circa 1982-83. Presumably it was inspired by arcade games such as Space War and Asteroids! I have no idea who invented it. I have attempted to formalize the rules as I remember them, in an attempt to find out if other people have played this game. And to inspire a new generation of players! Basic Rules Materials 1 sheet of paper (8.5"x11" or A4, or larger) 2 wooden pencils (not mechanical; HB a.k.a. #2 preferred) with erasers on the end (Optional) pencil sharpener Setup Sequence Each player takes one pencil and sits on opposite sides of the paper, facing a short edge The 1" band on each end of the paper (closest to each player) is the player' "hangar" Each player draws his/her "hangar wall" - a line 1" from the his/her edge of the paper, from edge to edge Each player adds a 1" gap to his/her hangar wall at any position along its length - this is the "hangar door". Play Sequence Players take alternating turns. Moves Shots Notes Variants Skips Tears

The Disclosure Project The Emerging Fourth Sector - The Three Traditional Sectors Businesses create and distribute goods and services that enhance our quality of life, promote growth, and generate prosperity. They spur innovation, reward entrepreneurial effort, provide a return on investment and constantly improve their performance responding to market feedbacks. They draw on the skills, effort and ingenuity of individual workers, and share with them the economic value created by the enterprise. Non-profit organizations give us ways to celebrate, build and protect the many human values that give rise to healthy, thriving communities. They have worked to ensure that all people have adequate necessities of life, including clean air, water, food and shelter; an equitable share of wealth and resources; and opportunity to develop their full physical, mental and spiritual potential. The Blurring of Sectoral Boundaries Businesses are dedicating more resources to delivering social and environmental benefits. Figure 1. Figure 2. Figure 3.

Power Base How to Use Wolfram Alpha Inside Google Docs Wolfram Alpha is a search engine that is probably best know for helping students solve mathematics problems. But there is more to Wolfram Alpha than just computational data. Wolfram Alpha can help students quickly locate information about famous people in history, locate socioeconomic data, find science data, and even help students find information about music theory. Unlike on Google or Bing, when students search on Wolfram Alpha they won't be shown a list of links. Wolfram Alpha offers a free Google Docs Add-on that students can use to conduct research without leaving the documents they're viewing. The following video offers a brief overview of what makes Wolfram Alpha different from other search engines. Headline News
