NotMe: l think we are talking-past each other. In the 70s, my engineer uncle told me that when satellite maps were overlaid with USGS maps, the error from Philadelphia to Northern Virginia was just less than 20 feet, so the old GeoSurv maps were that accurate.

 

Snowden Realities:

 

DeutscheWelle, 30Jan15, "German spy agency saves millions of phone records, says report", by Gabriel Borrud

part of subtitle: "The German gov't was quick to announce plans to widen data retention against terrorism..." after the Paris attacks

 

--- the BND "...currently collects around 220 million pieces of metadata per day, far more than was currently thought."

 

-- some part of this, approx. 1%, is transferred to NSA (US)

 

- 2 million pieces per day are stored for 10 years "...for extended period of 'long term analysis'..."

Missing Safety Features:

 

If the STASI essbees were not enough to worry about, now we have to worry about criminals, pranksters and snoops.

 

CBS News' 60 Minutes ran a feature Sunday night (the 8th) entitled "DARPA DAN" about securing drones and showing the vulnerability to hacking in our new cars. :mad:

 

One key element in the report is reference to Sen. Ed Markey's sponsored report on the vulnerability of our automobiles to hacking. In summation:

 

npr.org/blog, 09Feb15 1626EST, "Q&A: Sen. Ed Markey on Protecting Data Our Cars Are Sharing"

---- 20 automakers were contacted and nothing  is being done by any automaker :realangery:

 

Other media take a variety of positions on this. Exempli gratius:

 

Detroit News, 09Feb15, "Report: Cars are Vulnerable to Wireless Hacking"

 

Forbes, 10Feb15, "Congress, 60 Minutes Exaggerate Threat of Car Hacking"

 

Daily Caller, 09Feb15, "DARPA Hacked a Car to Prove AutoMakers Aren't Securing Them" (underline added -ed.)

 

Autoblog, 09Feb15, "Can DARPA hack into Chevy Impala through OnStar ?"

 

 

For info search "car + hacking". The 60 Minutes report is available online at CBS.com

 

Hmmm. Wonder if someone can hack into Obama's Limo ?

 

Or, John Boehner's ?

Update on drones:

 

Bloomberg, 14Feb15, 1155EST, "FAA: Small Drones will provide Significant Benefits", by Alan Levin

 

Here is how the FAA has been paid-off so far (-ed.):

 

------ drones will fly lower than 500ft, be within the operators' eyesight and only fly in daytime

 

----- will weigh less than 55lbs

 

---- (sales point, again-ed.) the usual "good for" farms, etc

 

--- FAA projects 7550 licensed drone pilots in the first 5 years after current law is changed

 

-- currently, the FAA has issued 29 exemptions to current law (if that ain't extra-legal -ed.) (payola ?)

Orwell was naïve. He could only envision "double think".  Beyond the "double and doubtful meaning" that was used to impress hesitation into people so they will not ordinarily act or talk -- a new element has emerged in our pre-fascist society.

 

Watching  DeutsceWelle's Quadriga program, "Rise of Terror: Civil Liberties in Danger?", (19Feb15) the prefacing video ended with the suggestion: using police protection as we exercise our liberties  --- a close-to quotation.

 

Having the police standing over US as we "freely assemble", "freely speak", "freely associate", "freely go where we want to go"...

for the purpose of keeping US "safe".

 

This is like a "police cat" watching over the mice. With or without drones.

 

Or a "police rattlesnake" counting the mice as they pass. Particularly the girl mice.

 

This is not Orwellian "double think". This -to coin a new explanatory- is "tricky think".

 

"Tricky Think" like a fraternity making the intended victim 'feel safe' before they pounce. (Or like was done to girls in the Cairo Square with "mutt and jeff")

 

 

Want to feel "real police safe", just search: police + "charged with"  and you will find every crime imaginable committed by the bullies-in-blue.

Today I was listening to a digital tech radio program that usually talks about computer stuff and the host of the show said she has information on her website about a drone detector system that costs $1000. The basic personal drone detection system. Each RF Sensor Node can typically detect drones within 50 feet in all directions. Frequency detection range 1MHz - 6.8GHz. She said the system sets off an alarm to alert you. The name of the company is DOMESTIC DRONE COUNTERMEASURES.

engadet.com, 20March15, "FBI accuses NYPD officer of scamming road accident victims", by Daniel Cooper

 

NYPD Auxiliary Deputy Inspector  Yehuda Katz  broke into the FBI data base.  :!!!:

 

Katz installed a hidden camera and a remote link in the traffic safety office.

 

When he saw no one in that office, he'd remotely search NYPD and FBI records on vehicle accidents.

 

Then victims would get a letter from a "Katz and Katz" law firm "promising to help" for 14%.

 

Katz did about 6400 searches.

 

Opine: The FBI can't keep their data secure? What about NCIC? is this open for searches too?

 

Our Privacy is Our Security --and Big Mother gov't and Wa- :shaytan: can't keep a file locked?

It may be helpful to glance over posts 39 & 44 before reading the following:

 

To Be Safe, Be Paranoid

 

1] mainstreet.com, 26March15, 0812EDT, "Identity Fraud May Have Dipped in 2014, But Experts Say Not Enough", by Chris Melinko

(opine: the title is a little misleading)

----- "... no significant movement downward and doesn't expect any big change over the next year."

--- "Part of the problem is that the perpetrators of identity theft get better technology and new techniques every year, and there are more transactions and more information accessibly electronically all the time."

 

2] Pymnts.com, 25March15, 0615EDT, "Spike in Fraud have experts doubting Apple Pay"

---- debate continues on how secure Apple Pay is

 

3a] the guardian.com , 06Jan15, 1010EST, "UK public must wake up to risks of CCTV, says surveillance commissioner (Tony Porter -ed.)"

---- use of cctv is changing the "psyche of the community"

---- there are 100,000 public CCTVs and 6 million "private" ones

 

3b] telegraph.com, 10July13, 1830BST, "One surveillance camera for every 11 people in Britain, says CCTV survey", by David Barrett

---- of 5.9million private cameras, 750,000 are "in sensitive locations" such as schools, hospitals and care homes

--Opine Question: These are "sensitive locations"? What? Are there nuclear devices or cryptographic activities in the basements? Or an exaggerated fantasy of self importance?

As we all adjust to our  Big Mother gov't designed psyches (post 45 #3a), we have for our instruction:

 

newvision.com, 24March15, "Dances with rules: China to keep performers in line"

 

--- From: the General Administration of Sport with the Ministry of Culture

 

--- To: the old, noisy grannies

 

--- Action Point: The current activities of the "damas" (dancing grannies --ed.) are overenthusiastic and "will be strictly regulated"

 

--- Process: an "expert panel" will dictate 12  "state approved" square dances.

 

--- Reasoning (tricky think): because of this impromptu enthusiasm, Liu, the Chief of the General Administration of Sport's Mass Fitness Department said,

"So we have to guide it with national standards and regulations."

 

 

Other articles are available on Big Mother's Monitored Web Lines.

 

Big Mother and Wa- :shaytan: direct you to her national guidance at:

 

USA.gov  ---> search: "dancing" ---> Suggested Entries:

page1, ERIC for "effective instructional strategies to meet ... inclusive classroom" requirements

page2, you will find Belly Dancing

page3, Dancing for Balance with NIH supplementary guidance

1]   Business Insider, 06May15, "Yes, the TSA is probably profiling you ant it's scientifically bogus", by  Kelly Dickerson

 

--- "yawning" will get you in trouble, as does looking around

 

There is one paragraph l found personally relevant:

.   "Despite years of criticism from airport employees and scientists who say this is just en excuse to yank whoever they want out of line, the TSA has spent nearly $1 Billion on the program, and it has repeatedly denied that SPOT leads to racial profiling."

I always knew l was repeatedly singled out for having a jewish sounding name.

While the Senate is today -Fri22May15-- "rushing" to do 'something' about expiration of Section 215 of the "Peeping-Tom Act"

 

we find it is not only Wa- :shaytan:  whose mentality is threatening, but also industry's

 

http://www.nbcnews.com/tech/gadgets/google-patents-toys-watch-listen-your-kids-n363421

 

Looking at the "print preview", on page 4 we find a sketch from a Fortune magazine story, with the title: "Google wants to patent the creepiest idea ever".

 

Playing to "protecting the children" red-herring.

Two interesting reports on DeutscheWelle:

 

1] "The End of Chance -the Power of Algorithms"  --search title

 

The first 10 minutes gets you oriented. The middle of the program you can skip. The last  10-15 minutes are interesting.

 

---Telephone surveillance is only effective with static, having-a-regular routine individuals. People who are traveling are far-range "outliers".

opine: so useless is this mass-peeping-Tom garbage.

 

-Explanatory statements made in the program include:

---"Predictors are statistics. Without regular patterns we do not build statistics."

---"We need patterns we can recognize and are present in the data."

---For "traveling" =no geographic pattern =it is an "outlier", and an "unique".

 

2] DW's "Life Links" series. title: "Conflict Z"

 

--showed the difficulties and persecutions bloggers in Bangladesh have.

--shows efforts to circumvent Mexico's new spying-facilitating Telecommunications Act has, in an infamously corrupt gov't and society.

Clearly this will all be given to government organizations, so they keep track of how many religious people we have, so they now how much to pump up the Dajjal propaganda on T.V "Just enjoy life, be free. Freedom. Who says you need to follow these rules? Scientists don't demand you get up early every Sunday to overdress and apologizing for being human,  so just surrender yourselves to atheism. Life is short, ignorance is a bliss, don't waste your life... etc. "

CyberCrime:   This thread is one-of-two Search Results for cybercrime.

http://www.dw.com/en/dw-business-02-25-2016/a-19072915 

Two EW-CyC presentations:

At the start of the video, Apple, lnc CEO Cook explains why Apple is contesting the FBI for reasons of public safety.

A short video @6:14 then Steffen Salvenmoser interview. ~@9:20 he says 50% of cybercrime (CyC) are from "inside perpetrators".   Earlier, 34% are from hacking and the rest is from "social engineering".

Relatedly: Fri.26Feb16 PBS Charlie Rose : Max Levchin, co-founder of PayPal, emphasized that "every bad actor" will be after Apple, Inc and its employees if the Justice Dept and FBI can force Apple to build spyware and crack phones. (Opine: the tower registries, Google, FB, servers, and all have Farook's contacts and behaviors already accessible. The DoJ only wants to hack anyone anytime. Maybe because the NSA's programs are such complete failures. A name change will then be in order: FBI abbreviates "face book investigators" :party:)
