Who is the 'terrorist' ?

"Cabinet okays anti-terror conspiracy bill" --NHK

--this kind of bill has failed 3x before

--is open to arbitrary interpretation while it is claimed to be "only" against crime groups that are "likely" to commit 'crimes'

-- to include "277 offenses"

-- 5 years for a single specification when charged and convicted, 10 years for more

I'm not the least surprised. I already knew this. 

(salam)   When l watched the NBC/Brian Williams interview, Edward Snowden at one point talked about the "in your mind" aspect of NSA/gov't  activities --which I think is his "motivation". Why Snowden

^^^^^^^ "Why Uber" ?  Well, maybe they are trying to re-do a Red Swoosh. Uber's Founder, had sold his file sharing company to Akamai Technologies which has a working relationship with NSA and is a service provider to the FBI. The VP for Business, Emil Michael worked for former Sec of Defense Bill Gates.

Uber, which is privately held, has an acquisition program -available in part on the Net. lt is also foraying into self-driving cars and has hired Carnegie-Mellon's robotics department in this effort. Now Uber is caught-up in a lP theft case involving 14,000 documents. Self-driving has also been a Dept of Defense competition for years --which has expanded to drones and robots and robotic logistical support.

A lot of cash potential here.

You are being stalked:

https://www.androidheadlines.com/2017/05/study-concludes-many-70-percent-apps-track-users.html 

Such tracking with internet data search provides and/or Stasi Data Files another means for personally abusing you by criminals, psychos and polizei.

Yet, not to be left out of the voyeur opportunities, CEOs of Jet Blue [Comrade Robin Hayes] and Delta [Comrade Edward H. Bastian] have instituted trial lntimidation Stations at JFK Intern'l Airport using facial recognition intimidationware.  JFK is their "hubs".

https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/georgia/articles/2017-06-01/jetblue-and-delta-will-test-biometric-boarding-passes 

The US gov't and its fascist allies are now one-up on the Nazis and Communists: lt is no longer "your papers" it is now "your body".

Check your PROFILE

While the transcript and video for Nightly Business Report Fri 02 Jun17 will not be probably up until Monday, there is a video report on the Twitter Data used to make YOUR PROFILE based on sites selected, purchases, "likes" , etc. What is portrayed is "inaccuracy" of these profiles --creepy if true, deceptive if false.

There is also this How-To from the web: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20172679#

Some opine in the right column also.

Mind Blowing:  Hackers can take over warplanes?

https://www.rt.com/news/396178-germany-hackers-hijack-warplanes/ 

This is the sole source -for now, BUT:

From 10April2013 we have: http://www.computerworld.com/article/2475081/cybercrime-hacking/hacker-uses-an-android-to-remotely-attack-and-hijack-an-aiplane.html

Remember Flight MH370 which "disappeared" 08March2014 ?

Hijack a warplane: this will likely be far worse than Korean Air 007.

Here is a sentence to get into our heads:

Who controls artificial intelligence controls the future.

--David Grossman, BBC "Newsnight", 21July17

To extrapolate this idea, then from "the weather", to "the oil", to "the pipelines" ...it is now "who controls Al controls the World"

lntersting Book on the accuracy of BIG Data.

"Everybody Lies" is the result of research by an economist.

Since FaceBook and other social media accounts are frivolous in their portraits, the real who of who-we-are is more revealed in our Bing and Google searches. lt is this last activity that is used for "predictive analytics". This is also used in criminal convictions. http://bigthink.com/david-ryan-polgar/everybody-lies-but-google-may-know-the-true-you 

Another review of "Everybody Lies" is at https://www.harpercollins.com/9780062390851/everybody-lies 

The author's website provides some short detail. http://sethsd.com/everybodylies/

businessinsider:   http://www.businessinsider.com/nypd-apple-iphone-windows-phone-2017-8 

Last year, 2016, NYPD bought 36,000 Windows Smartphones ---but evidently without a service contract. Windows dropped update and security services for this system in June/July prompting the NYPD to switch to iPhones.

Typical gov't.

It does say in the article "response times had an 8% reduction" with Windows. Now ... ?   ... does that mean it took 8% more time on average to respond to calls  or 8% less.?

Smartphones were chosen because of their interoperability with the NYPD Windows operating system.

Another creepy --to me anyway. Also tag as AI

https://www.theverge.com/2017/10/4/16405200/google-clips-camera-ai-photos-video-hands-on-wi-fi-direct 

"The Google Clips Camera puts AI behind the lens"

No display, etc. The camera decides what pictures to take and also uses facial recognition.

Chip Control ...

as l entitle this.

To combat drug cheats in sports there is the proposal to embed chips in people's bodies.

https://www.acsh.org/news/2017/10/11/embed-microchips-olympians-halt-drug-cheats-official-says-11946     .

lf we didn't have enough personal intrusions.

Now how long will it take before some fascism freak to imagine, "Hey, we could do this to everybody to 'win' the drug wars."

Not long at all. l already did.

Because of the online postings, l selected this thread about "online threats to your I3rain"

Creepy, Disgusting and Childish Warning: 

http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/south-korea-gets-serious-about-hidden-cameras-amid-growing-number-of-peeping-toms 

l got my reference to this from NHK-Tokyo. ln NHK's news report, women looking for hidden cameras even under toilet rims.

A technician who runs a search service said, 1) commercially available cameras have lens the size of a pencil lead making them difficult to find; 2) to help find them, turn off lights and use the flashlight on your cell phone to scan rooms, areas and fixtures/furniture. The lens will reflect this light.

No Comments, please.

The "suspicious" activity is not in the starry-eyed public, dear Mark-us,  but within our FaceBook who bethinks U.S underlings.

[or untermenschen if you are a neo-Nazi]

--apologies to Wm. Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act 1, Scene 2

Under the pretense of securing  US public from "suspicious activity" of multiple users who wish to manipulate ... whatever ... FarceBook is now requiring users to provide a clear, machine recognizable selfie picture to manage accounts.

Of course, Big Mother Gov't and her Stasi-witch-sisters are overjoyed. Kim Jong-un has now expressed interest in acquiring smartphones for his people with the same face-recognition technology to ferret out hidden untermenschen and other political undesirables. President Trump today, 29Nov17, again re-tweeted anti-Muslim rhetoric he acquired from the UK.

"No civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth," because teens, 92%, essentially live on social media, with 1 in 5 waking up at night to check for messages or to send them.

The "HTTPS" is not more secure, but now less secure for you. Be careful online and do not give in to impulsive actions.
