“They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” an unnamed intelligence officer told Barton Gellman and Laura Poitras of the Washington Post.

“They” are the National Security Agency, and the Post report reveals that an N.S.A. program called Prism has, for the past six years, been “tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.”

NSA PRISM Power Point Slides 

These were not occasional, extraordinary incursions: the Post, in addition to talking to the intelligence officer—who decided to speak out of a concern for civil liberties that seems to have been distinctly lacking at higher levels—obtained PowerPoint slides from an internal N.S.A. briefing and other documents. The Guardian also got the briefing materials. One of the slides explains that “NSA reporting increasingly relies on PRISM” for close to one in seven of its intelligence reports, and the program, which began in 2007, is said to be growing rapidly.

Will blinking blue lights of servers soon fill the aisles that previously offered the Blue Light Special? Sears Holdings has formed a new unit to market space from former Sears and Kmart retail stores as a home for data centers, disaster recovery space and wireless towers.

With the creation of Ubiquity Critical Environments, Sears hopes to convert the retail icons of the 20th century into the Internet infrastructure to power the 21st century digital economy. Sears Holdings has one of the largest real estate portfolios in the country, with 3,200 properties spanning 25 million square feet of space. That includes dozens of Sears and Kmart stores that have been closed over the years.

Business Continuity, Complete With Starbucks

“There are compelling reasons why this is a great model,” said Sean Farney, the Chief Operating Officer of Ubiquity. “It used to be the business continuity centers were located in an industrial park. The customer has evolved to the point where they want a sexier location, where they can have access to a Starbucks and other retail, because it’s possible they may be there for weeks or months....

Worried about draconian Internet laws? Creeping surveillance? The Internet is still a tool of tremendous power, but a deep rot has set in. We have caught it early and we are fighting to stop this rot, but there are other options we can begin exploring to hedge our bets and enhance our current efforts.

Texas Judge Rules Schools Can Force RFID Chips on Students or Face Suspension

In the fall of last year the San Antonio Northside School District in Texas announced that they would track students with RFID (radio frequency identification) chips in their student badges.

One student, sophomore Andrea Hernandez, was suspended for refusing to wear the tracking device and took the matter to court.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia ruled in favor of the school district claiming they have the right to expel Hernandez for refusing to abide by school requirements. By default the judge ruled that the school had the right to force children to be treated like cattle while on campus.

The program, called the “Student Locator Project,” is aimed at increasing student attendance rates presumably to boost in public funding for the district.

“There is something fundamentally disturbing about this school district’s insistence on steamrolling students into complying with programs that have nothing whatsoever to do with academic priorities and everything to do with fattening school coffers,” said John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute when he took the case.

As part of the pilot program, roughly 4,200 students at Jay High School and Jones Middle School are being required to wear “SmartID” card badges embedded with an RFID tracking chip which will make it possible for school officials to track students’ whereabouts on campus at all times.

Ham Radio Cheat Sheet – an InfoGraphic

Posted on Jan 06, 2013 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden –

It can be said that communication is one of the most important aspects of disaster contingencies.  It is relied upon by every facet of response, rescue, and recovery, but is often times damaged or hampered from the actual disaster.  Once the usual lines of communication go silent, many jurisdictions are left in the dark regarding critical decisions and fail to receive important updates because they have no back-up plans.  This is where amateur radio, often referred to as HAM radio, fills in the gap.

With the ability to broadcast from your home, vehicle, or on mobile units, and cover an incredibly large and diverse region rather inexpensively, ham radio should be on the forefront of your preparedness checklist.  It is also quite easy to power ham radio units with small solar panels for off-grid or remote communications. While there are various regulations concerning the use of the airwaves, one can obtain a license to become a radio operator for disaster preparedness, hobby, or recreation with just a small amount of studying and a brief written exam....

MIT Discovers a New State of Matter with a New Kind of Magnetism: Quantum Spin Liquid

Posted on Dec 21, 2012 in Science & Technology

Researchers at MIT have discovered a new state of matter with a new kind of magnetism. This new state, called a quantum spin liquid (QSL), could lead to significant advances in data storage. QSLs also exhibit a quantum phenomenon called long-range entanglement, which could lead to new types of communications systems, and more.

Generally, when we talk about magnetism’s role in the realm of technology, there are just two types: Ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism. Ferromagnetism has been known about for centuries, and is the underlying force behind your compass’s spinning needle or the permanent bar magnets you played with at school. In ferromagnets, the spin (i.e. charge) of every electron is aligned in the same direction, causing two distinct poles. In antiferromagnets, neighboring electrons point in the opposite direction, causing the object to have zero net magnetism (pictured below). In combination with ferromagnets, antiferromagnets are used to create spin valves: the magnetic sensors used in hard drive heads.

Antiferromagnetic orderingIn the case of quantum spin liquids, the material is a solid crystal — but the internal magnetic state is constantly in flux....

A specially equipped Black Hawk was recently used to demonstrate the helicopter’s ability to operate on its own.

Hayden’s Note:

Well, I suppose this isn’t the best time for me to decide to become a helicopter pilot. :-/

In the first test of its type, the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research’s Development and Engineering Center, based at Redstone Arsenal, flew the Black Hawk over Diablo Mountain Range in San Jose, Calif. Pilots were aboard the aircraft for the tests, but all flight maneuvers were conducted autonomously: obstacle field navigation, safe landing area determination, terrain sensing, statistical processing, risk assessment, threat avoidance, trajectory generation and autonomous flight control were performed in real time.

“This was the first time terrain-aware autonomy has been achieved on a Black Hawk,” said Lt. Col. Carl Ott, chief of the Flight Projects Office at AMRDEC’s Aeroflightdynamics Directorate and one of the tests pilots....

Ingress, Keyhole, and the CIA: Google’s New Augmented Reality Video Game

John Hanke is the head of Niantic Labs, the Google unit that created Ingress, a new global augmented reality game.

Let’s quickly look at some of what Hanke was up to before he worked at Google.

After graduation from the University of Texas at Austin, Hanke, “Worked in foreign affairs for the US Government in Washington, DC and Southeast Asia.” Nice and vague. *wink* *wink*

Hanke went on to become the CEO of Keyhole, Inc., a company that specialized in geospatial data visualization and had multiple connections to the black world. Keyhole, Inc. received financial backing from the CIA (via In-Q-Tel). Google acquired Keyhole, Inc. and the associated technologies became Google Earth, Google Maps, and other Google services.

This is relatively bland so far, I know, but I’ll leave it up to you to decide if any of the following is strange, given Hanke’s long association with the U.S. Government.

It might be helpful to keep Secrets in Plain Sight in mind as you wade into this one.

In Ingress, Google wants people to be physically present at the locations that are in the game to confront, “A mysterious energy,” and to, “Choose a side.”

“The Enlightened” seek to embrace the power that this energy may bestow upon us.

Disaster Response Robot: DARPA Releases New Video of PetMan Navigating Obstacles

Posted on Oct 29, 2012 in Police, Military, & War, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden –

In this recently released video, Boston Dynamics – funded by DARPA – shows off more of the abilities of the PetMan robot.  The prototype seen in the video is the predecessor to the Atlas robot, who will be competing autonomously in an upcoming robotics obstacle challenge.

Notice when he steps up, he begins to lose his balance but quickly regains it, exhibiting eerily-human reflexes and motions.

The soon-to-be SkyNet is supposedly being developed to assist in disaster response, although with the rate of unmanned aerial vehicles, drone boats, and autonomous scout vehicles, rest assured these robots will one day see combat.

Reverse-Engineered Pacemaker Transmitter Enables ‘Anonymous Assassination’, Mass Murder from Firmware Update

Posted on Oct 18, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden –

Source: SC Magazine via

IOActive researcher Barnaby Jack has reverse-engineered a pacemaker transmitter to make it possible to deliver deadly electric shocks to pacemakers within 30 feet and rewrite their firmware.

The effect of the wireless attacks could not be overstated — in a speech at the BreakPoint security conference in Melbourne today, Jack said such attacks were tantamount to “anonymous assassination”, and in a realistic, but worse-case scenario, “mass murder”.

In a video demonstration, which Jack declined to release publicly because it may reveal the name of the manufacturer, he issued a series of 830 volt shocks to the pacemaker using a laptop.

The pacemakers contained a “secret function” which could be used to activate all pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) in a 30 foot -plus vicinity.

Each device would return model and serial numbers.

“With that information, we have enough information to authenticate with any device in range,” Jack said.

In reverse-engineering the terminals – which communicate with the pacemakers – he discovered no obfuscation efforts and even found usernames and passwords for what appeared to be the manufacturer’s development server....

Conspiracy theorists need theorize no more. In pages from a fiction novel brought to life, the strangest twists in popular folklore have been winding through our government corridors. In this case, I wouldn’t blame you for being tempted to run it by Snopes.

Fabled as a secret society, Freemasons see themselves as an esoteric fraternity; an ancient brotherhood of initiates who are voted into membership for the purpose of sharing enlightenment through the use of exclusive teachings.

So why then is an exclusive group collecting our children’s DNA, with support of police and the government across the USA and Canada?

You know them as MasoniChip, or perhaps you’ve been led to believe it was a state and provincial endeavor intended to protect your little ones. They set up fairs, forge partnerships with law enforcement and even strive to distribute their services through North American public school systems.

In Massachusetts, this Freemason program was promoted by CBS News from the steps of the official State House and included their police dog, coincidentally named Mason....

Researchers have found evidence suggesting that the United States may have developed three previously unknown computer viruses for use in espionage operations or cyber warfare.

For now, the two firms know very little about the newly identified viruses, except that one of them is currently deployed in the Middle East. They are not sure what the malicious software was designed to do.

Hayden’s Note:

Interesting timing for this piece of information to come to light.  Recently, a “leaked” draft of a cybersecurity Executive Order was plastered across the internet, indicating an attempt to intimidate and use heavy handed mob tactics to coerce certain members of Congress into approving the CISPA-like bills that resulted in tremendous public outcry and concern.  Here’s a bit more info –

Earlier this week, we wrote about how the White House was working on an executive order to act as a “stand in” for cybersecurity legislation that has so far failed to pass Congress (CISPA passed in the House, but a different effort, the Cybersecurity Act, failed in the Senate, and it would have been difficult to get the two houses aligned anyway)....
