Dean Erwin Chemerinsky (WoT:nonperson), a USG propagandist, has moved to change the name of UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall from that of its current namesake, John Henry Boalt (archived, archived). Elizabeth Boalt, whose husband was John Henry Boalt, an Oakland attorney and veteran of the War of Northern Aggression, donated a sizeable sum to the school after his death in 1901. A work by Mr. Boalt’s titled “The Chinese Question,” had helped serve to stop Chinese colonists, known for their exam taking abilities, from entering the US by bolstering support for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Chinese exclusion in the US survived through Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1943 Magnuson Act .

The laundry list of issues were described as "must-fix" items before the F-35's upcoming $22 billion Block 4 "upgrade" phase can begin. (archived)
A sudden 50% drop in hashpower on the BCH network this morning caused it to go 5.5 hours without producing a block (archived). Users likely didn't notice as the next block, 620026, contained only 2.3MB in transactions. The anomaly occurred just days after BCH communist party leaders announced, then seem to have rescinded, a plan to tax miners 12.5% of block rewards.
West Virginia's governor and legislature have begun inviting counties unhappy with the takeover of Virginia State government by DC commuters to join his state in secession (archived).

A remotely-exploitable vulnerability for OpenSMTPD, OpenBSD's mail server, present since May 2018, has been made public (archived). It enables an attacker to execute arbitrary shell commands with root privileges.
Notably, the proof-of-concept exploit makes use of routines which first made an appearance in the Morris worm of 1988.
A shipping container from China was seized by US Customs and Border Protection officials after it was found to contain almost 1 Million USD in allegedly counterfeit single dollar bills (archived). The container arrived via the International Falls port of entry in Minnesota holding 45 packages of dollar notes totaling $900,000. Secret Service agents congratulated themselves on keeping the money out of circulation and upholding their appearance of monopoly on printing approximately 6.6 billion increasingly worthless notes every year.
