Microchipped Humans: Nightmare Becomes Reality

Posted on September 17, 2012

“Scientists have designed a brain implant that sharpened decision making and restored lost mental capacity in monkeys, providing the first demonstration in primates of the sort of brain prosthesis that could eventually help people with damage from dementia, strokes or other brain injuries.” From BrisbaneTimes.com…   The device, though years away from commercial development, gives researchers a model for how to support and enhance fairly advanced mental skills in the frontal cortex of the brain, the seat of thinking and planning.The new report appeared on Thursday in the Journal of Neural Engineering.   ”The whole idea is that the device would generate an output pattern that bypasses the damaged area, providing an alternative connection in the brain,” he said.   Many hurdles remain. Decision…

Aerial Drones To Patrol Beaches

Posted on September 16, 2012

“Surf Life Saving Australia says unmanned aerial drones will patrol some Queensland beaches this summer.”     From ABC News..   The organisation’s head, Brett Williamson, says the drones will be used on North Stradbroke Island in a trial of the technology. He has told Radio National’s Background Briefing program the drones, which have a wingspan of one metre, use cameras to search for swimmers in distress. Mr Williamson says the drones will be fitted with flotation buoys that can be dropped down to the ocean.   “At the end of the day this is about public safety,” he said.   “It’s not about intruding on anybody’s privacy and, fortunately, with our experience of having the fixed cameras network we haven’t had one problem…

G20: Fortress Brisbane – Snipers, Missiles and Naked Body Scanners

Posted on July 23, 2012

Surface to air missiles, sniper teams, roadblocks and combat aircraft and a host of other Orwellian security measures will descend on the city for the 2014 G20 summit.   Brisbane train commuters could also face humiliating and degrading American TSA style naked body scanners which look set to be introduced on trains for the upcoming G20 Summit in 2014. Brisbane, the capital city of the state of Queensland, Australia will play host to the world leaders including US President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2014 as it hosts the summit at the Brisbane Exhibition and Conference Centre.   The Convention Centre backs onto a vital commuter rail route through the city as well as a major…

Facebook Buys Facial Recognition Company

Posted on June 18, 2012

Privacy and civil liberties took another slow goose-step towards tyranny today when Facebook announced it has purchased Face.com in a secretive deal with the Israeli company.   Worse still was the revelation that Face.com’s technology is designed not only  to identify individuals but also their gender and age.  So in terms of adapting this system over time and deploying it on the streets within normal surveillance cameras,  how does one do this without causing too much notice? You slowly and methodically introduce these technologies into social media as “cool apps” or consumer aids and in particular you normalise the use of this technology within the younger generation – who ultimately grow up with this, thinking it’s perfectly reasonable and normal. Facial recognition software has been…

U.N. Wants To Tax The Internet

Posted on June 12, 2012

This year has signalled a much greater intensity of the ramping up of curtailing internet freedoms – and by all accounts there is much worse to come in the way of tyranny and the end of free speech.  For now, the march continues with another hair-brained scheme.   CNET Reports…   The United Nations is considering a new Internet tax targeting the largest Web content providers, including Google, Facebook, Apple, and Netflix, that could cripple their ability to reach users in developing nations.   The European proposal, offered for debate at a December meeting of a U.N. agency called the International Telecommunication Union, would amend an existing telecommunications treaty by imposing heavy costs on popular Web sites and their network providers for the privilege…

Big Brother DNA Database Swells With Innocent People

Posted on June 5, 2012

The trend of taking DNA swabs from innocent parties, adding it to huge databases and then refusing to delete the DNA data continues.   From the Daily Mail   Almost 165,000 innocent people are estimated to have been added to the police DNA database in the past three years. Despite Coalition promises to wipe the records of those not guilty of crimes, a report suggests that this has so far not happened in the majority of cases.   Between 2009 and 2011, the figures show that 986,767 people were added to the DNA database in total, according to a survey of police forces. This includes the profiles of the convicted and those who were arrested but were later cleared or never charged with a…

Elizabeth Moon: “Barcode Everyone At Birth”

Posted on May 25, 2012

  Freedom loving individuals would have been horrified to hear American science fiction writer Elizabeth Moon go off on a 60 second rant about why it would be a good thing to barcode everyone at birth on a recent BBC radio program.   Speaking on the “60 second idea” feature on the BBC, Moon said:   “If I were empress of the Universe I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached – a barcode if you will; an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals. It would be imprinted on everyone at birth. Point the scanner at someone and there it is.”   “Having such a unique barcode would have many advantages. In war soldiers…

Israel Unveils New Butterfly Drone

Posted on May 18, 2012

Doesn’t it make you feel warm inside that you and your children’s future will be dominated by aerial surveillance drones?  Me neither.   Robotics and military applications seem to be merging in a symphony of mindless slaughter these days with the ever increasing presence of UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) not only in battleground locations such as Iraq and Afghanistan, but soon to appear at a police force near you.   What is even more disturbing is that what is revealed to us through the media as “new technology” is usually OLD technology that is no longer classified.  Lord knows what they have under classified programs – so the following story comes as no surprise. Beauty, tyranny and death together with the gracious wings of…

Your Phone’s Contents Copied In Minutes

Posted on April 9, 2012

Michigan State Police are reported to be using a state-of-the-art data forensics device during routine traffic stops, which is able to copy your entire mobile phone’s contents in under two minutes.   “The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) has learned that the police had acquired the cell phone scanning devices and in August 2008 filed an official request for records on the program, including logs of how the devices were used. The state police responded by saying they would provide the information only in return for a payment of $544,680. The ACLU found the charge outrageous.” “Law enforcement officers are known, on occasion, to encourage citizens to cooperate if they have nothing to hide,” ACLU staff attorney Mark P. Fancher wrote. “No less should…
