The suspects, whose mission was allegedly sanctioned by the Peoples Republic of China, worked for more than three years as part of a campaign known as "Operation Fox Hunt" to coerce Chinese nationals living in the United States to return to China where they were wanted for various government offenses, said John Demers, chief of the Justice Department's National Security Division.
Five of the suspects, including a New Jersey private investigator who allegedly assisted with surveillance, were arrested earlier Wednesday and charged as illegal agents of the PRC. The three others are believed to be living in China.
"The Chinese government's brazen attempts to surveil, threaten and harass our own citizens and lawful permanent residents while on American soil are part of China's diverse campaign of theft and malign influence in our country and around the world," FBI Director Christopher Wray said.

Terror Is Predictably Increasing
Everywhere I look, I see people in poverty and suffering. No matter what political system you live in, Capitalist or Communist, you have different degrees of the same problem where a tiny percentage of the people own maybe half of everything while a great many others are struggling. What causes this problem? The answer might surprise you.
Nowhere on planet Earth does limited government exist anymore, except maybe in some tiny provinces like Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, which by the way
are doing quite well.
In my retirement, I started a couple of self-employment projects. My point is that people are happier, more productive, and generally more prosperous when they can work for themselves. However, excessive government regulation makes owning your own business so difficult that most people would never try, and those who do often give up. It takes economies of scale to make running a business workable, which is why we have the current corporate culture to which most people find themselves "wage slaves."
The Keynesian idea that government spending drives the economy has failed over and over again. Free people engaging in Free Enterprise drive the economy and make us prosperous. The only way we can get back to that is to reign in excessive government. (We should scrap all regulations and start over with simpler replacements. We should start with the tax code.)
Unfortunately, it might not matter, because the excessive and failed policies of government have driven us so far into debt that we will forever be paying off that debt.

New nuclear engine concept could help realize 3-month trips to MarsSeattle-based Ultra Safe Nuclear Technologies (USNC-Tech) has developed a concept for a new Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) engine and delivered it to NASA. Claimed to be safer and more reliable than previous NTP designs and with far greater efficiency than a chemical rocket, the concept could help realize the goal of using nuclear propulsion to revolutionize deep space travel, reducing Earth-Mars travel time to just three months.

During the interview, McMahan revealed that Mariner was romantically involved with Captain Amina Ramsey when the two were at the Academy.
The showrunner stated, "The thing about privilege is that some people have it, some people don't. But everybody has their own story as well."
That character is Captain Amina Ramsey. And McMahan would be asked a follow-up on that revelation confirming if she is indeed her lover.
He responded, "We weren't explicit about it, because most of the relationships in this show are familial or friendship love. It's not physical love. That character showing up, the story we're telling about them has nothing to do with any previous relationships they've had."
He then went on to reveal that all the Starfleet officers on the show are "baseline bisexual."
He stated, "For me and for the writers as we were making this, we didn't intentionally mean for anybody to be strictly heteronormative or straight or cis. Every Starfleet officer is probably at the baseline bisexual, in a way. That being said, I am not the most amazing person at writing those kind of stories. I think we get a little bit better about it in the second season."
McMahan would also discuss the show's inclusiveness. He stated, "It's something I think we need to be better about. If there's anything I can say about inclusiveness — whether it's about sex or gender or race or anything — is that I know that I can always learn more and be better about it, and I'm always trying to do that."
He then specifically stated they should have made it clearer that Mariner had a female lover, "This is one of those cases where we could have done a better job of explicitly stating the things that the writers always knew about Mariner. It seeps in there in little ways, which even irritates me even more, like you start off the season with Mariner saying, "Whoa, she's like the hottest girl on the ship, are you nervous?" — that's one of her first lines."
McMahan continued, "That doesn't put a stake in the ground, which I wish we had done a little bit more explicitly. It's always a learning experience. We're going to be trying to be better about it. And we are more explicit about it in the second season."
