Navy refuses to detail sonar use in lawsuit

HONOLULU ? The Navy is refusing to detail its sonar use for a federal court in a case involving potential harm to whales, saying the information could jeopardize national security.

Complying with a federal judge?s order to hand over the information would require disclosure of sensitive and classified material, the Navy said in a news release Tuesday.

The Natural Resources Defense Council is suing the Navy to ensure sailors use sonar in a way that doesn?t harm whales and other marine mammals.

Critics say active sonar, which sailors use by pumping sound through water and listening for objects the sound bounces off of, can strand and even kill marine mammals. A U.S. Congressional Research Service report last year found Navy sonar exercises had been responsible for at least six mass deaths and unusual behavior among whales. Many of the beached or dead animals had damaged hearing organs.

Any time the military or a politician doesn't want to answer a question, they claim "National Security" as the excuse.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
