This is the Wall Street Journal this morning America's first news -- court. Justice sets its sights on the Ferguson. Good morning I'm Gordon Deal along with -- Cervetti. It is Thursday September pork -- Willis here -- we have for you this -- the civil rights division of the Justice Department is expected to look back several years have -- allegations of misconduct in the Ferguson Missouri police department President Obama is in Wales today for an international summits with Russia and the Islamic -- top -- minds we'll take you there new numbers from the government about how much we spend on health care you'll -- where the trends -- in about twenty minutes and help the US should respond to the growing threats from Islamic states. I would suspect. This. We will suffer casualties of the homeland due to iasis. It is sometimes the the next five years but those who say we can prevent that. We're gonna destroy the basis because this we've got the magic planned -- I think they're getting. So while congressman Brad Sherman from California warns about the threat from terrorists to our homeland. He's here in about 25 minutes. President Obama is promising to defend Baltic nations against Russian intervention in -- speech yesterday in Estonia. What are those Baltic nations mr. Obama blamed Moscow for fighting in eastern Ukraine and call for eight united stand against Russia's aggression. It was by the government of -- the destabilize eastern Ukraine. It's been a pro Russian separatists. For encouraged by Russia financed by Russia. Trained by Russia. Supplied by Russia and armed by -- more now from Wall Street Journal reporter Colleen McCain Nelson is with us live this morning from Cardiff Wales where the president. Is attending an international summit with NATO leaders today -- suspect not only Russia about the Islamic state will be leading subjects of discussion. Yeah you're exactly right Russia and you screener at the top of the -- and that and this morning. I -- Obama will be meeting with leaders. The UK from France and Germany from Italy. To talk about next step in responding to Russian -- In Ukraine. But. Also on his mind is is how the United States and its allies they're going to proceed in Iraq in theory as -- that and think he's going to be talking with leaders. About throughout the day it is that NATO summit as well. Any reaction from the president about these ceasefire talks between Russia and Ukraine. Well it was interesting that this kind of playing at in real time yesterday as. President Obama lit in it at Sony and doing press conference there were reports that there what is cease fire. And biting into the press conferences it buy it report. Said that that was premature that there would not a ceasefire but -- -- from the start President Obama expressed. That this isn't sinking back. Russia had not Allen followed through you on previously he fired and that they don't have a good track record here. So I he he immediately cast doubt about whether -- -- It here Q any commitment that they might claim to be making. Now another president's got this said joint op Ed with UK prime minister David Cameron in the times of London today any specifics in there on addressing either issue like Russia or the Islamic state. Well we've not heard a lot of specific. I -- on on either front it is clear that. The United States -- Other NATO allies to step up and spend more on the -- and you know NATO members has committed. In the past -- and -- 2% of their GDP. But only 420. Members that NATO had actually followed through on that so. The president President Obama is asking other NATO members view. To abide by that guideline and and spent more in defense that NATO can have more important than it has more. And provide more assistance to Ukraine. But in check in terms. Getting specifics so far -- bit and it did discussions have been more general and and in terms of addressing Syria and Iraq and he's Islamic extremists there at that point the United States is. Looking for willing partners trying to build a coalition that sort it is not he yelling at strategy. We're speaking with Wall Street Journal reporter Colleen McCain Nelson is -- live this morning from Cardiff Wales where she is traveling with the president. So what's the likelihood of these NATO members actually spending more on defense. Well. We're going to see commitment coming from more NATO members saying that they will spend more in the future but at. It's not really binding agreement there's not necessary. Is that timeline so I think you'll -- commitment to more NATO members saying. Will try to do better little will spend more -- gradually overtime but how quickly -- we have thought and whether they'll actually. All of you log on that comment remains to be seen. Not very reassuring he's calling Wall Street Journal reporter Colleen McCain Nelson traveling with the president with a -- this morning from Cardiff Wales twelve minutes now after the hour.

Into possible misconduct within the Ferguson Missouri police department. As you know what's been harshly criticized since one of its officers. Shot and killed them on armed eighteen year old last month. More now from the Wall Street Journal most mornings Jennifer Kushinka. The -- by justice marks a significant expansion of federal scrutiny. The department is already conducting a criminal probe to determine whether the officer violated the civil rights of Michael Brown. Now the civil rights division will begin what's called a pattern and practice probe. Meaning that instead of a single officer and Ferguson the investigation will cover the entire 53 person police department. At pattern and practice -- tries to determine if there are systemic problems in the work culture. The new probe into the Ferguson police department will look back several years and examine past allegations of misconduct Gordon. Thank you Jennifer -- in recent months Justice Department officials have launched pattern in practice investigations against a large New York City jail. The police department in Newark, New Jersey and the Albuquerque, New Mexico. Police departments. While there are lessons to be learned from the recent hacking of celebrity iCloud accounts in which intimate or nude photos were released. Pictures that celebrities like Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence presumed were secure so exactly how safe is our stuff in the cloud. Here's tech analyst rob interleague principal of the Andrew -- group he's based in San Jose rob what should we keep in mind. The nature of the cloud is that for some things that they prevent having messed up a home the cloud. If you have an earthquake Europe the disaster or fire well probable. Hopefully protect your information and it will make it accessible for those of also if you were to die. There's a reasonable chance to. Somebody could get access to the stuff -- you passwords. If they don't know where you put it. They're not gonna get access to it if you died so that took that he might evidence or someplace and don't get cleaned up and -- -- by cleaning crew or somebody else. -- have any interest in acerbic members. On the other hand. -- can be accessed by everybody. So in terms of being able to keep -- from -- guy is it's not as good as if you put it dual box. Buried at your backyard forgot about it and that's something that you have to remember. Most of the services are designed so that they give you easy access to this stuff. -- -- placed in an area that everybody can have access to and that's where we get into trouble folks use very trivial passwords they don't -- on. The dual factor. Authentication. Option that's available in most of the products that are out there. In the case about all there's an option you can turn on -- the service will send you back basically text you back echoed. That you wield it and in the service on top of your password. Before you're allowed -- but it's kind of a pain. And people just don't. Gently -- to audit and so you start with a trivial passwords like 12345. Or password. And that kind of combination it is thought command well. That's like if you you know of 500000 dollar broad should be put it didn't look paper bag here on your front porch it's probably not going to be there in the morning. Users have to be aware that they're gonna put in -- high value things in their cloud account like naked. Pictures they need to make sure all the security is turned Don and that people can't get access to would easily. Speaking with tech analyst Robin nearly. I -- delete stuff from the cloud once you put it in there. Well that there's that Q I think it is what -- -- already didn't get is that the cloud is design. Just specifically back up the stuff like your own sort of accidentally deleted you. Get it back to that means what you delete the pictures on the phone and this service doesn't know what you do that that -- Or on purpose it doesn't leaked pictures you have to login to the survey. Rest and delete pictures from the service but be aware would make -- -- Pictures of celebrities these services to protect your information -- I have a backup process in place which means regularly they take copies of all that stuff is put on a tape. And the nation but the someplace like Iron Mountain -- -- that could be found. At any future point I think that. The saying goes if you put something up on the web it's going to be there forever that probably is that -- saying to work. Number because once it goes there is a good chance that somebody was able to capture it that it was backed up and stored -- that somebody in the future may be able to find the. Thanks rob Robin early principal of the interleague group it's twenty minutes now after the hour. On the Wall Street Journal this morning -- Cervetti is here with more of America's first news.

Homeland goodness and our. 23 minutes now. After the hour on the Wall Street Journal this morning thanks for being with us good Thursday morning spending on health -- in the US remained -- last year but is projected to pick up the pace with a rebounding economy. And more people gaining insurance under the affordable care -- the complex and controversial new law. Wall Street Journal reporter Stephanie armour has a look at new figures from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Stephanie jobless figure out the stats. Yes health spending is going up but it's not going up nearly at the rate that hats and passed in fact. What we saw what they were projected to see for this year three point 6% increased. Is the fifth consecutive year where we're seeing increases below 4% so that is good okay cell. There are going to be debates about this right. The slowing. Of the increase is a credit to the Affordable Care Act the slowing of the increase is because we're making better choices say it's because of a whole lot of -- ratings I suspect. Great and it beat report that he knocked from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Does not actually break -- whether reforms or systematic changes to our health care delivery system are behind this. They're putting a lot of the -- reasoning -- rationale on the east low economic recovery that people are just putting off medical care medical treatment. As well as some. The the fact that people are spending more our pocket they're tired higher deductibles these days so they're saying that that combined is. Helping to tamp down some of the spending increases. Parts how much are actually spending the over -- are spending in 2000 at thirteen was about two point. -- nine trillions about two point nine trillion dollars. Which is projected to go up -- looking ahead if we look ahead to 2019. And 2023. They are expecting these increases two to accelerate. But they're still saying as a number of actors they're gonna help keep that from becoming as run away as it was in previous years. We're speaking with Wall Street Journal reporter Stephanie -- about health care spending. So it is this is sustainable pattern anybody look that far ahead were we can say you know what that this is good because we can we can see the -- months. You increase spending going down down down. Great I 88 big dip projections -- they'd done going forward do you seemed to indicate that while they expect. That the spending increases will pick up big rebound it's not they're not expecting to be. At the runaway levels we've seen in the past they're largely attributing that in part to the slow economic recovery people are just reluctant to spend even on health care. Also there's more and more baby boomers. That are aging into Medicare and well the aging population in one hand is putting pressure on spending. The fact that they're moving it to Medicare this makes them a younger and healthier. Beneficiary population in Medicare so therefore less spending.

And all summer talking about the church of the saudis and others openness destroy -- You've got to remember that they hear as opposed to the Shiites. As much as the New York basis and I don't think.

Time now for a small business update and it's brought to you by Granger get what you need when you need it call click or stop by today get it. Got it good Granger for the ones who get it done. Reasons for optimism from small business owners Wall Street Journal reporter Angus low in points out that there's a time in every recovery. Went small businesses move from slashing costs to spending more on things like new plants machinery trucks computers. Office equipment and furniture he says there are signs that this may be worth the recovery is now Angus explained. Connor is described it to me this could be a field of dreams moment for small business owners. In the sense that if if if you build that customers will come is the belief. I mean you can imagine they've been in a survival mode for the last couple of years sudden -- larger companies have been putting off. Equipment upgrades but we do we've been doing since about June 2012 we've been doing a survey of 800 small business owners. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Also banks are loosening up lending event credit demand has also come up a bit I mean. And and optimism has been slowly rising in terms of business conditions in the months ahead so. Yes some of them are we're not talking about millions of dollars but certainly tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars in and capital -- and this includes things like the building's renovation to buildings equipment trucks. Computers even office furniture. Were speaking with Wall Street Journal reporter Angus -- and is it -- surprise that it's taken so long to get to this point. It's certainly been a slow grinding recovery for small businesses. And I think there's been fits and starts as well there's there's certainly been moments throughout the past year away and business owners of Fata can't think does a good time to -- to put money into my business to kind of catch some future demand and then only to have. The the lousy winter for instance the kind of ruin those those plans and sales slowed down. And dad they went back into kind of a survival mode our surveys have shown that that they're seeing better sales they also. Every reason to believe that sales revenue and profits are gonna be going up in the next -- so. Other the national federation of independent business for instance has seen a similar rise the GDP. In the over the second quarter some of that growth in GDP was accounted for by business spending so -- certainly. Folks small businesses and his big businesses alike are seeing some solid fundamentals and -- this is the times -- to invest. -- Angus Wall Street Journal small business writer. Angus -- it is nine minutes now before the hour on the Wall Street -- morning -- -- that he is back with more of America's first news. Good morning -- Justice Department plans to open up broad probe into possible misconduct with in the Ferguson Missouri police department. A major expansion of federal scrutiny after the shooting death of eighteen year old Michael Brown in August by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Russian president Vladimir Putin pushed a cease fire deal with Ukraine it would freeze in place -- gains made by Russian backed separatists. The Russian leader proposed an end of the rebel offensive but also a pullback of Ukrainian troops that would be a major concession for Kiev. Layoffs hit USA today's -- which let go about seventy employees in its flagship publication. Including about 10% of the new staffed -- a month ago Gannett said that it would split off publishing from broadcasting in digital. Generous incentives more demand for suvs and trucks fueling August vehicle sales to an eight year high. Chrysler stood out thanks to the -- -- -- forecast that sales were flat and GM sales slipped from a year ago. Considering all that's needed Jim it has -- chair leg and I wouldn't read too much until -- 1% held struck conduct that's pretty much. Jessica Caldwell with Edmonds. Well most of us are not driving electric cars and sales continue to spotter. Edmunds says that sales of electric and hybrid vehicles captured about three point 6% of the market through August. Down slightly from last year share. Futures are trending higher this morning after a mixed close for Wall Street yesterday. The Dow rose about eleven the S&P lost but one and a half the NASDAQ dropped 26. Apple lost 4% following an analyst downgrade. Overseas today Asian markets were mixed. It's football time again with Green Bay at Seattle in the kick off tonight. Top players are in the semis at the US open in New York Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams winning their respective quarterfinals. And it looks real Massachusetts license plate the signature red white and blue colors the spirit of America written at the bottom just like the real thing but. Now local resident has a new traffic citation for an allegedly fake cardboard play that she drew. Seem she left LP inspection sticker and that tipped off an officer. All right CRTs. Yes. Well apparently is pretty good. Just not complete that was the thing that you're following what is it two or three car lengths back yes you're supposed to be doing yeah. Yes get a little closer. I don't know what happened -- her reins while -- point warping and all other bad stuff that happens with cardboard. -- I think -- six minutes out front of the hour on the Wall Street Journal this morning. Because of -- employers may be reluctant to hire because the economy is still on shaky ground they also may feel there's a skills gap. But one -- -- certainly get rejected for a job. Is to -- the show up. For an interview a British company called aspire.

They were unable to keep unemployment because it was raining. In London the city known for its -- Other excuses one applicant said he lost his iPhone yet emailed the excuse to the hiring manager from said iPhone. There was a laptop computer that exploded in the middle of the night and left its owner too traumatized for job interview food poisoning from a bad batch of muscles. And a mishap involving apricot jam. That affected a potential new hire who feared they would quote not feel this confidence in my other close.
