Nation's Disabled Work Program Mired In Corruption

27 JUL 15



(CNN)The nation's premier federal program that provides work for people who are severely disabled is mired in widespread corruption, financial fraud and violations of the law, numerous sources tell CNN.

AN extra sliver of time — a “leap-second” — is being added to the world’s clocks to adjust for the inaccuracy of the spinning Earth.

Before the invention of super-accurate atomic clocks, time was based on the Earth’s rotation, one complete turn taking 24 hours.

Now a plethora of time-sensitive systems, including computer programs and financial markets, rely on the precise ticking of atomic clocks that measure the energy transitions of atoms.

The problem is that due to the moon’s gravity the Earth is slowing down, and not in a regular way. So every now and then a leap second is added to allow astronomical time to catch up with... [Read More]
