For sale: Systems that can secretly track where cellphone users go around the globe

Posted by in category: surveillance

— The Washington Post

Surveillance companies are marketing systems to governments worldwide that are capable of pulling location data out of global cellular networks, even if you are traveling in another country. These systems are designed so that neither cellphone users nor their carriers detect the tracking. That could allow government officials to potentially sidestep court review or other systems designed to protect the rights of people targeted for surveillance.

Henry Ford’s Success Prescription

00d

Without getting into deep waters, I have always admired the technical achievements of Mr. Henry Ford. In the process, I have had held a great perspective about any developments by the Ford Motor Company as well.

Interestingly enough and in all formality, R&D in Ford means R&D&Innovation.

Whenever they want to and as they already have, Ford Motors Co. can change the world again and again and again, without constraints. Actually, it is their decision.

Success Through Swiss Specialness By Mr. Andres Agostini at http://www.LINKEDIN.com/in/andresagostini

Success Through Swiss Specialness

parque de chile

I have a most-successful well-to-do Swiss friend in Zurich, operating worldwide, who argues, “…Andres, doing business is holding a conversation with the right people …” You share his thought in North America and people think it a naivete. My friend is, regardless, absolutely wise by any known and unknown measure.

I have known penniless educated people, both young and in advanced ages, with great smarts and promissory ideas, but extremely imprudent and tactless that keep themselves in a limbo loop of not accomplishing anything because of their abject lack of true immemorial wisdom. Well, this friend of mine is exactly a testimony of the outright contrary.

He is the most industrious and fun person I have ever met, from Monday through Monday, 24÷7÷365, all of the time. He strongly reminds me of my thyself.

Chopsticks Of The Future Will Count Your Calorie Intake For You

Posted by in category: food
By — Huffington Post

While normally just a vehicle to get food from plate to mouth, chopsticks have been capable of some pretty incredible feats — like creating a larger-than-life portrait of Jackie Chan. And in the very near future, they’re being programed to do a whole lot more.

Chinese search engine Baidu is working on a technology for chopsticks, called Kuaisou, that’ll enable them to test PH levels, the temperature of food and track nutritional information. They’ll also be able to detect the freshness of oils, helping to prevent the use of contaminated foods like gutter oil. (Gutter oil is something that should never — EVER — exist, but does in Chinese and Taiwanese street food.)

I need Advice from the Young

Posted by in category: Uncategorized

If I were young, I would jump the bandwagon of cryodynamics and the implied new cosmology and free energy.
And I would motivate friends to help me write down the new global–c transform of general relativity.

And above all, I would tell my elders that f&w – food and water – is the only way to stop the exponential growth of Ebola on a continent.

You can make a difference, my young friends, please, start. Politics is boring and sterile. This is a young planet on which you can make a difference. Don’t let the establishment kill Africa. You can stop CERN and you can save Liberia. Monrovia is about to die, see J.A. Lewnard, M.L. Ndefoh Mbah, Yale University, http://biostat.gru.edu/Journal%20Club/Rao_2014.pdf

Be human. Don’t kill by inaction like your elders do. f&w is the only lifeline of a mega city and, at the moment, its West Point area. Please, start.

What advice can you hand out to me in return?

BitCoin, Cryptocurrency, and Blockchain Technology — The Ethereum Primer

Quoted: “Ethereum will also be a decentralised exchange system, but with one big distinction. While Bitcoin allows transactions, Ethereum aims to offer a system by which arbitrary messages can be passed to the blockchain. More to the point, these messages can contain code, written in a Turing-complete scripting language native to Ethereum. In simple terms, Ethereum claims to allow users to write entire programs and have the blockchain execute them on the creator’s behalf. Crucially, Turing-completeness means that in theory any program that could be made to run on a computer should run in Ethereum.” And, quoted: “As a more concrete use-case, Ethereum could be utilised to create smart contracts, pieces of code that once deployed become autonomous agents in their own right, executing pre-programmed instructions. An example could be escrow services, which automatically release funds to a seller once a buyer verifies that they have received the agreed products.”

General Motors Reportedly Launching Cars That Detect Distracted Driving

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

By — The Consumerist

(Ashley)

For years, laws have been put into place to discourage distracted driving: no texting while driving, no talking on the phone while driving, the list goes on. General Motors is taking things a step further by commissioning a vehicle that detects and alerts drivers to their distracted behavior.

The Financial Times reports that General Motors is preparing to launch the first mass-produced vehicles with eye– and head-tracking technology to detect distracted behaviors in drivers.
