The University of California's governing board is expected to vote to confirm U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to become the first woman president of the prestigious 10-campus system. If approved as anticipated by the Board of Regents, she would become the 20th president in the 145-year history of the university, which has been battered by nearly two decades of boom-and-bust funding, leading to tuition increases and classroom shortages. Congressional aides in the Senate and House of Representatives said that they were notified by email of a potential security risk involving email and other accounts. Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told a security forum that the government was already moving to better isolate intelligence so that all of it isn't accessible in one place, and to implement a "two-man rule" - similar to procedures used to safeguard nuclear weapons. "When are we taking countermeasures? The answer is now," Carter told the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. "This failure originated from two practices that we need to reverse." less
