A world under surveillance
By : The Suburban - Sunday October 7, 2007
1 comment
From surveillance cameras to data pirating, every bit of life is scanned and stored to meet economic and political agendas. Until awareness is heightened and proper legislation put in place, our right to privacy will continue to be violated, said privacy activists at the Privacy Rights in a World under Surveillance conference held last weekend at Montreal’s Sheraton Centre.

Chip Implants Linked to Animal Tumors
By : Johan - Sunday September 9, 2007
By TODD LEWAN The Associated Press Saturday, September 8, 2007; 2:04 PM When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved implanting microchips in humans, the manufacturer said it would save lives, letting doctors scan the tiny transponders to access patients’ medical records almost instantly. The FDA found "reasonable assurance" the device was safe, and a sub-agency even called it one of 2005’s top "innovative technologies." But neither the company nor the regulators (...)

In tech field CIA spied a chance for growth: It funds start-ups and reaps progress
By : Star-Ledger - Tuesday July 31, 2007
Hopelessly lagging the freewheeling high-tech entrepreneurs of the day, the nation’s spy agency recognized it needed better access to cutting-edge technologies to carry out its mission of collecting, analyzing and communicating intelligence data. But rather than sending covert agents, the agency took a more direct approach: It began knocking on doors with money. And for once, the CIA made no secret of its plan. Sunday, July 29, 2007 BY J.

Need A Cooker? Use Your Cell Phone By Sue Mueller

Ah, where to start, there are so many facets, so many angles, and you are so conditioned to NOT see... in fact, you have been carefully conditioned to be so biased that you are addicted to it and under current conditions legally insane. (...)

Quake cuts off much of Asia Internet
By : Quake - Thursday December 28, 2006
Dec 27 5:04 AM US/Eastern Internet and phone services have been disrupted across much of Asia after an earthquake damaged undersea cables, leaving one of the world’s most tech-savvy regions in a virtual blackout.

Vote Flipping in Webb Allen Senate Race in Virginia

My wife just called me from our polling place. We are in Northern VA, a blue enclave in a red state. This morning, as I posted earlier, I had difficulties in casting my vote on the machine. Well, she just visited the same polling place after work, and informs me that her vote for Jim Webb was flipped to Felix Allen TWICE. She never hit the VOTE screen until her vote finally registered for Webb, but is this what we’re up against? (FYI, she laughs at my conspiracy theories, and (...)

Numerous Problems In Houston Texas Including MACHINES BEING SWAPPED OUT!

By 11am this morning here in Houston, The Houston Chronicle has already reported a number of election day issues with machines not working or displaying incorrect data. Most disturbing of all, a race I’ve been watching exceedingly closely, they swapped out TWO voting machines in Tom DeLay’s old district after voting had already begun. Voters across the Houston area today were already finding long lines and problems with electronic voting machines as they tried to cast their (...)

They are already screwing with the vote here in Missouri

I just listened to local radio and they had people calling in to report what is happening at polling locations all over the area. The folks from Kansas reported no problems. Missouri was a completely different story. Some of the problems: Voters at one polling location were given the wrong ballot. A woman who was running for office came to vote and saw that her name was not on the ballot. So she complained and they changed the ballot. Another voter asked what they were going to do about (...)

The drumbeat of reports from around the country of touch-screen voting machines failing during Early Voting continues to grow. These aren’t "glitches." These are failures.

Anomalies, Prisons, and Geophysics: How Governments Use Data and How to Stop Them
By : chycho - Friday October 6, 2006
A common definition of an anomaly is "a deviation from the common rule, type, arrangement, or form." This definition, however, can be simplified by stating that an anomaly "is a deviation from specific parameters." The defining characteristic of an anomaly is that it can only exist in a comparative setting, implying that it can only be detected within a certain data set. Once a data set is obtained then parameters can be specified to filter out so called anomalies for evaluation. Depending (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
