Intellistreets is a wireless digital infrastructure that is designed to provide information, entertainment and safety notifications to passerby, all while controlling vehicular and pedestrian traffic, providing on-demand street lighting, and monitoring its surrounding environment. But is your privacy being threatened in the meantime?

 

“In each lighting fixture or each lighting pole, there is processor very much like an iPhone. And it takes inputs and outputs and talks back and forth. And the poles actually talk to each other,” Intellistreets’ inventor, Ron Harwood, told WXYZ in Farmington Hills, Mich., where the technology is made.

A time tunnel of tomorrow – what a way to commute!

The patent for a time machine has been filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office by one Dr. Marvin B. Pohlman of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Who is Marvin B. Pohlman?

An American scientist, Marvin B. Pohlman is a man of many talentsand a very busy man.

According to his bio he’s the Director of Governance, Risk and Compliance product strategy for a major Bay area enterprise software company. Despite the demands of his career, he’s also managed to author three text books on IT governance and security. [Amazon – Oracle Identity Management: Governance, Risk, and Compliance Architecture, Third Edition]

In whatever spare time such a man has left, he found enough of it to invent a time machine.

By creating an artificial wormhole time travel is possible.

At first glance, such a thing might be too fantastic a notion to believe, yet Pohlman does hold a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics, an MBA from Lexington Business School, and a PhD in computer science from Trinity University. View full article »

WAR – What is it good for!?

Vatican urges economic reforms, condemns collective greed

* Document also calls for “Central World Bank”

* Condemns “idolatry of the market”

* Urges Wall Street to examine its impact on humanity

* Says reform should start under U.N. auspices (Recasts, adds more on document encouraging reform movements)

By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY, Oct 24 (Reuters) – – The Vatican called on Monday for sweeping reforms of the world economy and the creation of a ethical, global authority to regulate financial markets as demonstrations against corporate greed continued to spring up in major cities across the globe.

An 18-page document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department said the financial downturn had revealed behaviours like “selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale,” adding that world economics needed an “ethic of solidarity” among rich and poor nations.

Urging Wall Street powerbrokers to examine the impact of their decisions on humanity, the Vatican called on those who wanted to change economic structures to “not be afraid to propose new ideas, even if they might destabilise pre-existing balances of power that prevail over the weakest.” View full article »

Governments turn to hacking techniques for surveillance of citizens

Surveillance firms that recently attended a US conference are accused of offering their services to repressive regimes

Italy’s Hacking Team offers ‘an offensive solution for cyber investigations’

In a luxury Washington, DC, hotel last month, governments from around the world gathered to discuss surveillance technology they would rather you did not know about. The annual Intelligence Support Systems (ISS) World Americas conference is a mecca for representatives from intelligence agencies and law enforcement. But to the media or members of the public, it is strictly off limits.

Gone are the days when mere telephone wiretaps satisfied authorities’ intelligence needs. Behind the cloak of secrecy at the ISS World conference, tips are shared about the latest advanced “lawful interception” methods used to spy on citizens – computer hacking, covert bugging and GPS tracking. Smartphones, email, instant message services and free chat services such as Skype have revolutionised communication. This has been matched by the development of increasingly sophisticated surveillance technology. View full article »

The Tattoo Used in Auschwitz Was Originally An IBM Code Number

Russ Kick , February 24, 2010

Here is another (controversial) chapter from my book 50 Things You’re Not Supposed to Know, published in 2003.

For more on me, look at The Memory Hole.

IBM in Auschwitz Phone Book

The tattooed numbers on the forearms of people held and killed in Nazi concentration camps have become a chilling symbol of hatred. Victims were stamped with the indelible number in a dehumanizing effort to keep track of them like widgets in the supply chain.

These numbers obviously weren’t chosen at random. They were part of a coded system, with each number tracked as the unlucky person who bore it was moved through the system.

Edwin Black made headlines in 2001 when his painstakingly researched book, IBM and the Holocaust, showed that IBM machines were used to automate the “Final Solution” and the jackbooted takeover of Europe. Worse, he showed that the top levels of the company either knew or willfully turned a blind eye. View full article »

Painkiller ‘Epidemic’ Deepens in U.S.

By: Jason Kane

Doctors prescribed enough pain medication last year to partially numb every American adult around-the-clock for a month. So much of the stuff is now being handed out that lethal overdoses tripled in the past decade, according to a new report from the CDC out Tuesday.

In fact, painkillers now cause more deaths in America than cocaine and heroin combined. And if the numbers keep rising, they’ll soon outpace car crashes as the nation’s leading cause of fatal injury.

CDC Director Thomas Frieden has one word for that: Epidemic.

“Now the burden of dangerous drugs is being created more by a few irresponsible doctors than by drug pushers on street corners,” he said.

The fact that prescription drug abuse is a growing problem may not be news, but the CDC Vital Signs report brings the most recent statistics into startling focus. And together, they illustrate a trend that shows no sign of slowing any time soon.

Among the findings:

  • Overdoses from prescription painkillers — including oxycodone, methadone and hydrocodone (Vicodin) — killed 15,000 people last year. That’s more than 40 per day.
  • In 2010, 1 in 20 people in the United States (age 12 or older) reported using prescription painkillers for non-medical reasons in the past year.
  • The quantity of prescription painkillers sold to pharmacies, hospitals, and doctors’ offices in 2010 had quadrupled since 1999. View full article »

In the year 2022, earth’s face has completely changed. New York’s population, has grown to 40 million hungry mouths. The greenhouse effect has risen the temperature into nearly unbearable regions, and the people are kept in the cities by law. The rich live in separated luxury apartments (with women as part of the rented furniture) but also experience the lack of natural food. Strawberries are valued at $150 per glass. Police Detective Thorn investigates a strange murder case of an official from the Soylent corporation, which feeds the masses with a palette of their creations: Soylent red, yellow, or, even more nutritious, green.

Friction-less propulsion has been the wet-dream of the Military-Industrial-Complex for at least 100 years.  Needless to say they figured it out and have been exploiting it for  at least the last 50.  Why are we only seeing this now..?    We’re supposed to believe that a University discovered this before a Black Budget in the Multi-Trillions per year?

Few motifs of science fiction cinema have been more appealing to us than the subtle defiance of gravity offered by futuristic hovercraft. So every once in a while we check in to see how humanity is progressing on that front, and whether the promise of hoverboards will be delivered by 2015 as evidenced in Back to the Future Part 2. We’re not quite there yet, but we’re definitely getting off the ground, so to speak.

Get ready to hover your brain around the art of quantum levitation. View full article »
