House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security Hearing; "Risk-Based Security: Assessing the Path Forward for TSA Pre-check."; Testimony by Jennifer Grover, Director, Homeland Security and Justice, U.S. Government Accountability Office
March 25, 2015
Chairman Katko, Ranking Member Rice, and Members of the Subcommittee: Thank you for the opportunity to discuss our work on the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) efforts in implementing expedited screening, including TSA Pre.TM and the Managed Inclusion process. In 2011, TSA began developing new security procedures intended to strengthen security and improve the passenger experience by shortening lines and wait times. These new procedures applied risk-based, intelligence-driven screening concepts and enhanced the use of technology to determine passenger risk prior to travel. The procedures were intended to allow TSA to devote more time and resources at the airport to screening the passengers TSA determined to be higher or unknown risk while providing expedited screening to those passengers determined to pose a lower risk to the aviation system. Further, TSA developed the Managed Inclusion process, designed to provide expedited screening to passengers not deemed low risk prior to arriving at the airport. In March 2015, TSA officials stated they provided expedited screening at essentially all of the approximately 450 airports at which TSA performs or oversees security screening, including 126 airports where TSA offers expedited screening in dedicated TSA Pre.TM screening lanes. The 126 airports where expedited screening is offered in dedicated TSA Pre.TM screening lanes represent about 95 percent of total air carrier enplanements based on Federal Aviation Administration calendar year 2013 data. n1

Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
March 19, 2015
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS ($429.99) is one of the smaller cameras availablewith a 50x zoom ratio, and itdoesn't really skimp on features in order to get there. The superzoom uses a 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor that supports 1080p video capture and Canon's unique Creative Shot mode, and its control layout is quite good for a point-and-shoot model. It doesn't quite earn Editors' Choice accolade for models with 50x or higher reach, though. Another Canon camera, the PowerShot SX60 HS, is our choice instead, thanks to a 65x zoom lens, an integrated EVF, and Raw shooting support. But the SX60 HS is bigger and more expensive, giving you reason to consider the SX530 HS as a more affordable alternative.
