At least 1 dead as heat wave intensifies in Southwest

Forecasters predicted more supercharged temperatures on Sunday, as a heat wave gripped the US southwest, leaving one man dead and another hospitalized in serious condition in heat-aggravated incidents.

Temperatures in Las Vegas shot up to 115F (46C) on Saturday afternoon, two degrees short of a record, while Phoenix baked in 119F (48C). Large swaths of California sweltered under extreme heat warnings, which are expected to last into Tuesday night – and maybe even longer.

In Death Valley – known as the hottest place on Earth – temps reached 125F (52C), according to the National Weather Service. Death Valley’s record high of 134F (57C), set on 10 July 1913, stands as the planet’s highest recorded temperature.

A Las Vegas fire and rescue spokesman, Tim Szymanski, said paramedics responded to a home without air conditioning and found an elderly man dead. He said while the man had medical issues, paramedics thought the heat worsened his condition. Paramedics said another elderly man had suffered a heat stroke when the air conditioner in his car went out for several hours while he was on a long road trip. He stopped in Las Vegas, called 911 and was taken to the hospital in serious condition. The oppressive heat has sent more than 40 other people to hospitals in Las Vegas since it arrived Friday, but no life-threatening injuries were reported.

“We will probably start to see a rise in calls Sunday and Monday as the event prolongs,” Szymanski said, in a statement. “People’s bodies will be more agitated the longer the event lasts and people may require medical assistance.”

In Southern California, Palm Springs peaked at 122F (50C) while the mercury hit 111F (44C) in Lancaster and 117F (47C) in Baker. The strip of gas stations and restaurants between Los Angeles and Las Vegas is known by travelers for a giant thermometer that often notes temperatures in the triple digits.


National Weather Service meteorologists John Dumas said cooling ocean breezes haven’t been traveling far enough inland to fan the region’s overheated valleys and deserts. In Northern California, record-breaking temperatures were recorded in Sacramento, where the high was 107F (42C); Marysville reached 109F (43F); and Stockton saw 106F (41C).

In Phoenix, Joe Arpaio, the famously hard-nosed sheriff who runs a tent jail, planned to distribute ice cream and cold towels to inmates this weekend. Officials said personnel were added to the Border Patrol’s search-and-rescue unit, because of the danger to people trying to slip across the Mexican border. At least seven people have been found dead in the last week inArizona after falling victim to the brutal desert heat.

Temperatures are also expected to soar across Utah and into Wyomingand Idaho. The heat was so punishing that rangers took up positions at trailheads at Lake Mead in Nevada, to persuade people not to hike. Zookeepers in Phoenix hosed down the elephants and fed tigers frozen fish snacks. Dogs were at risk of burning their paws on scorched pavement, and airlines kept close watch on the heat for fear that it could cause flights to be delayed.

NSA slides explain the PRISM data-collection program

Published: June 6, 2013, Updated June 29, 2013

The top-secret PRISM program allows the U.S. intelligence community to gain access from nine Internet companies to a wide range of digital information, including e-mails and stored data, on foreign targets operating outside the United States. The program is court-approved but does not require individual warrants. Instead, it operates under a broader authorization from federal judges who oversee the use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Some documents describing the program were first released by The Washington Post on June 6. The newly released documents below give additional details about how the program operates, including the levels of review and supervisory control at the NSA and FBI. The documents also show how the program interacts with the Internet companies. These slides, annotated by The Post, represent a selection from the overall document, and certain portions are redacted. Read related article.

New slides published June 29

Acquiring data from a new target

This slide describes what happens when an NSA analyst “tasks” the PRISM system for information about a new surveillance target. The request to add a new target is passed automatically to a supervisor who reviews the “selectors,” or search terms. The supervisor must endorse the analyst’s “reasonable belief,” defined as 51 percent confidence, that the specified target is a foreign national who is overseas at the time of collection.

The FBI uses government equipment on private company property to retrieve matching information froma participating company, such as Microsoft or Yahoo and pass it without further review to the NSA.

For stored communications, but not for live surveillance, the FBI consults its own databases to make sure the selectors do not match known Americans.

This is where data enters NSA systems, described more fully on the next slide.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court does not review any individual collection request.

Analyzing information collected from private companies

After communications information is acquired, the data are processed and analyzed by specialized systems that handle voice, text, video and “digital network information” that includes the locations and unique device signatures of targets.

From the FBI’s interception unit on the premises of private companies, the information is passed to one or more “customers” at the NSA, CIA or FBI.

The systems identified asFALLOUT andCONVEYANCEappear to be a final layer of filtering to reduce the intake of information about Americans.

Each target is assigned a case notation

The PRISM case notation format reflects the availability, confirmed by The Post’s reporting, of real-time surveillance as well as stored content.

Depending on the provider, the NSA may receive live notifications when a target logs on or sends an e-mail, or may monitor a voice, text or voice chat as it happens (noted on the first slide as “Surveillance”).

Searching the PRISM database

On April 5, according to this slide, there were 117,675 active surveillance targets in PRISM’s counterterrorism database. The slide does not show how many other Internet users, and among them how many Americans, have their communications collected “incidentally” during surveillance of those targets.

Original slides published June 6

Introducing the program

A slide briefing analysts at the National Security Agency about the program touts its effectiveness and features the logos of the companies involved.

The program is called PRISM, after the prisms used to split light, which is used to carry information on fiber-optic cables.

This note indicates that the program is the number one source of raw intelligence used for NSA analytic reports.

Providers and data

The PRISM program collects a wide range of data from the nine companies, although the details vary by provider.

Participating providers

This slide shows when each company joined the program, with Microsoft being the first, on Sept. 11, 2007, and Apple the most recent, in October 2012.
