 More Security Theater

Image result for Chip and pin cards So does the new chip and pin cards increase their security.

The answer seems to be: sort of, a little, but not a whole lot, almost as efficient as the TSA airport theater.

 According to Jerry Irvine, who is a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Cybersecurity Leadership Council and CIO of Chicago-based Prescient Solutions.

 More security theater?

It sounds that way when Jerry starts reeling of the kinds of attacks the new cards will do nothing to prevent.

 Even so, October 1 is the date after which merchants are supposed to be liable for fraudulent purchases made with old-style cards, and are supposed to have point of sale terminals that accept "chip and PIN" cards.

VW GETS A GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD

 
According to the Wall Street Journal (paywalled) a loophole in the 1970 Clean Air Act could make it impossible for U.S. prosecutors to subject Volkswagen to criminal charges over its use of standards-dodging 'defeat devices' in its emissions-testing software.

 Prosecutors are now reported to be considering alternative methods, including (considerably lesser) charges that Volkswagen lied to regulation authorities.

Shodan

This search engine finds stuff connected to the net.


It is not always a good thing...

 

At the DerbyCon security conference, researchers Scott Erven and Mark Collao explained how they located Internet-connected medical devices by searching for terms like 'radiology' and 'podiatry' in the Shodan search engine. 

Some systems were connected to the Internet by design, others due to configuration errors. And much of the medical gear was still using the default logins and passwords provided by manufacturers. 'As these devices start to become connected, not only can your data get stolen but there are potential adverse safety issues,' Erven said.

For Years, the Pentagon Hooked Everything To The Internet. Now It’s a ‘Big, Big Problem’

Actual 1950s Proposal: Nuke Alaska

In 1958, the government wanted to nuke Alaska. Called Project Chariot and proposed by physicist Edward Teller, the intent was to use six hydrogen bombs to create a deep-water harbor near Cape Thompson.

The Inuit had to fight against this insanity.

HAARP Is BackAnd they are still fighting against insanity today.

 HAARP is a group of high-frequency radio transmitters powered by four diesel tugboat generators and one from a locomotive. The transmitters send a focused beam of radio-wave energy into the aurora zone. There, that energy can stimulate a speck of the electrical sun-Earth connection about 100 miles above our heads.

Pope's New Chief Astroboy Astronomer

"My job is simply to do good science," Guy Consolmagno says. 

On 18 September, Pope Francis appointed Jesuit brother Guy Consolmagno as the new director of the Vatican Observatory, which employs a dozen astronomers to study asteroids, meteorites, extrasolar planets, stellar evolution, and cosmology. 

The observatory is based at the pope's summer residence south of Rome and operates a 1.8-meter telescope in Arizona, where the skies are clearer. 

Science Magazine chatted with Consolmagno about a variety of topics, including whether God gets in the way of doing good astronomy. Consolmagno said, "First of all, I want to provide space for other astronomers to do their work. 

And I also want to show the world that religion supports astronomy. It is often religious people who most need to see that; they need to know that astronomy is wonderful and that they shouldn't be afraid of it.

 I often quote John Paul II, when he said [of evolution] that "truth cannot contradict truth.

" If you think you already know everything about the world, you are not a good scientist, and if you think you know all there is to know about God, then your religious faith is at fault."

During most of the 16th and 17th centuries, fear of heretics spreading teachings and opinions that contradicted the Bible dominated the Catholic Church. 


They persecuted scientists who formed theories the Church deemed heretical and forbade people from reading any books on those subjects by placing the books on the Index of Prohibited Books. A type of war between science and religion was in play but there would be more casualties on the side of science.

Nicholas Copernicus and Galileo Galilei were two scientists who printed books that later became banned.

Galileo Galilei showing the Doge of Venice how to use the telescope Copernicus faced no persecution when he was alive because he died shortly after publishing his book. Galileo, on the other hand, was tried by the Inquisition after his book was published.

 Both scientists held the same theory that the Earth revolved around the sun, a theory now known to be true.

However, the Church disapproved of this theory because the Holy Scriptures state that the Earth is at the center, not the Sun it was believed.

 As the contents of the Bible were taken literally, the publishing of these books proved, to the Church, that Copernicus and Galileo were sinners; they preached, through their writing, that the Bible was wrong.

 ROME, Oct. 30 1992— 
  More than 350 years after the Roman Catholic Church condemned Galileo, Pope John Paul II is poised to rectify one of the Church's most infamous wrongs -- the persecution of the Italian astronomer and physicist for proving the Earth moves around the Sun.

 With a formal statement at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on Saturday, Vatican officials said the Pope will formally close a 13-year investigation into the Church's condemnation of Galileo in 1633. The condemnation, which forced the astronomer and physicist to recant his discoveries, led to Galileo's house arrest for eight years before his death in 1642 at the age of 77.

  Galileo said, during his trial in 1633, that he did not believe what he wrote, that he let his vanity influence his words and phrasing to make him appear more intelligent to his readers but this plan failed when his readers came to the conclusion that he believed the Copernican hypothesis to be true because of his powerful phrasing.

 The dispute between the Church and Galileo has long stood as one of history's great emblems of conflict between reason and dogma, science and faith.

The Vatican's formal acknowledgement of an error, moreover, is a rarity in an institution built over centuries on the belief that the Church is the final arbiter in matters of faith.

 By the end of his trial, Galileo was forced to recant his own scientific findings as "abjured, cursed and detested," a renunciation that caused him great personal anguish but which saved him from being burned at the stake.

 Because of his advanced years, he was permitted house arrest in Siena. Legend has it that as Galileo rose from kneeling before his inquisitors, he murmured, "e pur, si muove" -- "even so, it does move."

 "We today know that Galileo was right in adopting the Copernican astronomical theory," Paul Cardinal Poupard, the head of the current investigation, said in an interview published this week.

Olives Are Havested In September Right About Now

Olives have been cultivated in parts of the Mediterranean—including Crete and Syria—for at least 5,000 years.

 The Mediterranean diet always includes olives.

Image result for Black olivesOlives are really good for all of us.

 Hydroxytyrosol, an olive phytonutrient that has long been linked to cancer prevention, is now regarded as having the potential to help us prevent bone loss as well.

 Research on whole olives and cancer has often focused on two cancer types: breast cancer and stomach (gastric) cancer.

 In the case of breast cancer, special attention has been paid to the triterpene phytonutrients in olives, including erythrodiol, uvaol and oleanolic acid.

These olive phytonutrients have been shown to help interrupt the life cycle of breast cancer cells.

Interruption of cell cycles has also been shown in the case of gastric cancer, but with this second type of cancer, the exact olive phytonutrients involved are less clear.

Olive benefits have been demonstrated for the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, nervous system, musculoskeletal system, immune system, inflammatory system, and digestive system.

 It is believed that many of these diverse systems benefits are actually related to two underlying health-support aspects of olives, namely, their unusual antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. 

 Raw olives right off the tree are much too bitter to eat. They need to be cured first, to bring out their flavor.

If you have a messy olive tree you can harvest the olives right now and prepare them for eating yourself. (PDF)

Earth Rising Neo


A cleaner, greener way to store solar and wind energy


With the continuing rise of solar and wind power, the hunt is on for cheap batteries that are able to store large amounts of energy and deliver it when it’s dark and the wind is still.


 Last year researchers reported an advance on one potentially cheap, energy-packing battery. But it required toxic and caustic materials. Now, the same team has revised its chemistry, doing away with the noxious constituents—an advance that could make future such batteries far cheaper and simpler to build.

How the FBI Hacks around Encryption

 
The Intercept tells about how little encryption slows down law enforcement despite claims to the contrary. 
 
 To hear FBI Director James Comey tell it, strong encryption stops law enforcement dead in its tracks by letting terrorists, kidnappers and rapists communicate in complete secrecy.
 
 But that's just not true. In the rare cases in which an investigation may initially appear to be blocked by encryption — and so far, the FBI has yet to identify a single one — the government has a Plan B: it's called hacking.

Hacking — just like kicking down a door and looking through someone's stuff — is a perfectly legal tactic for law enforcement officers, provided they have a warrant. 
 
And law enforcement officials have, over the years, learned many ways to install viruses, Trojan horses, and other forms of malicious code onto suspects' devices. 
 
Doing so gives them the same access the suspects have to communications — before they've been encrypted, or after they've been unencrypted.

They Used The Law To Hide From The Law

 
Automakers have argued that the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act makes it unlawful for researchers to review the code controlling their vehicles without the manufacturer's permission, making it extremely difficult to expose software cheats like the one Volkswagen used to fake emissions tests. 

Arguing that this obfuscation of code goes so far as to endanger lives at times, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) maintains that, "When you entrust your health, safety, or privacy to a device, the law shouldn't punish you for trying to understand how that device works and whether it is trustworthy."

John Harrison Chronograph Inventor Extraordinaire

Here's an interesting fact: when at sea you can't establish your longitude without a reliable clock. 


You can figure out latitude with a sextant, but not longitude.

 Early clocks used pendulums that don't work on a rocking boat. 

So in the 1700's the British government offered up £20,000 for a reliable clock that would work at sea. John Harrison designed a really accurate ocean-worthy clock after 31 years of effort and was snubbed for the prize which would be £2.8 Million at today's value. 

After fighting for the payout for another 36 years he did finally get it at the ripe old age of 80. 

The methods he used to build this maritime chronometer were core to every wrist and pocket watch through the first third of the 20th Century. 

One of his timepieces, designated Clock B, was declared by Guinness to be the world’s “most accurate mechanical clock with a pendulum swinging in free air” more than 250 years after it was designed.

One Of America's First Survey Bolts In New York City

A surveyor bolt from John Randel Jr. 

 It’s one of the last vestiges of lost New York that lives in plain sight without an official plaque highlighting its existence. 


And it’s become a popular treasure hunt for New York history enthusiasts and surveying hobbyists alike, a group of people who prefer not to divulge their knowledge of the 1810 relics' precise locations.

(Hint:  New York City
N 40.769418 / W 73.973436)



Some interesting tidbits we gleaned:

  • When most of the world's landmass was just one continent, dinosaurs walked from New Jersey to Africa, and the Jersey side of the Hudson is teeming with dinosaur footprints.
  • The palisades are the edge of a lake that formed when Africa ripped away from North America.
  • A beaver pond once stood in the area that is now Times Square. (This, and many other good facts, are courtesy of Eric Sanderson and the Mannahatta Project at the Wildlife Conservation Society.)
  • Rebuen Rose-Redwood, a geographer at Texas A&M and an expert on the 1811 survey that mapped Manhattan's grid, has found at least one original survey pin in Central Park. (We are going to search for the pin when the weather gets warmer and--if feasible--add it to one of our tours.)

Hardball Time!

 

Australia is suspending vehicle registration

 
RMS (Roads & Maritime Service), the New South Wales' governing body for transport, has begun suspending the vehicle registration of UberX drivers

After failing to deter drivers through prosecutions, with Uber covering fines and legal costs of its drivers, RMS has begun suspending the registration of the vehicles as it forces the vehicle off the road for three months.

 Under the NSW Passenger Transport Act, paid ride sharing is illegal, and this will see UberX drivers losing the use of their vehicle for both Uber and personal use.

Now only if this happened in the USA for texting while driving infractions.


The numbers illustrating the dangers of cell phone use while driving are downright startling. In fact, at any given time throughout the day, approximately 660,000 drivers are attempting to use their phones while behind the wheel of an automobile.

Smartphones have made it easy for us to stay connected at all times.

 But that can pose serious safety risks if someone decides to check his or her text messages, emails, phone calls, or any other mobile applications while driving.


  • The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year.
  • Nearly 330,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving.
  • 1 out of every 4 car accidents in the United States is caused by texting and driving.
  • Texting while driving is 6x more likely to cause an accident than driving drunk.
  • Answering a text takes away your attention for about five seconds. Traveling at 55 mph, that's enough time to travel the length of a football field.
  • Texting while driving causes a 400% increase in time spent with eyes off the road.
  • Of all cell phone related tasks, texting is by far the most dangerous activity.
  • 94% of drivers support a ban on texting while driving.
  • 74% of drivers support a ban on hand-held cell phone use.

Cell phone distraction rates are alarmingly high. 


  • In 2012, 3,328 people were killed in distraction-related crashes.
  • About 421,000 people were injured in crashes involving a distracted driver.
  • In 2012, 11% of drivers under age 20 involved in fatal accidents were reported to be distracted at the time of the crash.
  • One-fourth of teenagers respond to at least one text message every time they drive and 20% of teens and 10% of parents report having multi-text message conversations while driving.
 As cell phone use and driving becomes a national problem, the chances of being involved in a car accident with a distracted driver increase.

So it makes sense to start playing hardball and impounding registrations for three months for every cell phone while driving infraction.

India's First Dedicated Space Observatory

   

India has come a long way.


A few days after it celebrated the successful completion of a year around the Red planet by its first inter-planetary mission — the Mars Orbiter, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday launched its first dedicated multi wavelength space observatory into space, besides six satellites for Canada, Indonesia and the United States.

 Though the national space agency has launched satellites for Indonesia and Canada earlier, this is the first time ISRO is launching satellites for the United States.

  ASTROSAT's sensors will provide coverage in optical, Ultraviolet, low and high energy X-ray ranges, rather than the concentrating on a narrower range. Major institutions all over India will take part in the new craft's observations

Tonight's Lunar Eclipse Looks Exactly Like The One I Saw In 1982



Dean Hooper captured this moon shot during the total lunar eclipse on April 4, 2015, in in Melbourne, Australia, as part of the Virtual Telescope Project in Italy.
The combination of a total lunar eclipse with a supermoon last occurred in 1982 and won't happen again until 2033.

The current tetrad, Irvin Baxter (Endtime Ministries) predicts, will precede the signing of a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine. This, in turn, will “mark the beginning of the Final Seven Years to Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus to the earth”.

 Mark Biltz, of El Shaddai Ministries believes the blood moons do signal the end of the world, but that we have a while left before the four horsemen arrive.

 Biltz claims to be the “discoverer of the blood moons phenomenon”. He is on record as far back as 2008 as saying the current tetrad could signal major change.

 Matthew 24:36 makes clear that only God knows the timing of such, anyone who makes such a prediction is acting contrary to the Word of God.

For anyone concerned that the world may be coming to an end, the views of Nasa should provide calming relief.

The organization has used its website to quell fears of the planet being destroyed, or at least being destroyed soon.

“Nasa knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small,” the site says.

“In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years.”

As seen from around the world.

So what did the three jets spray over North San Diego.

After a mostly clear, sunny day at the coast, aerosol spraying by three planes from around five to six o'clock seemed obvious to anyone looking up.

 About the same time, concerned citizens started calling officials and news outlets about a strong natural-gas like smell.

 Chemical aerosol 'chemtrails' continue to be sprayed over the Los Angeles area today. 

A large moisture field moving in from Hawaii (pineapple express pattern) is threatening rain for bone-dry California and this is the reason why we are seeing chemtrails the past two days and today.

A counterclockwise spinning Gale is right behind the moisture field with a HAARP transmitter focused on its core.

We will continue to see aerosol chemtrail spraying to prevent the rainfall potential this Gale has.

 The aerosols create a high altitude inversion layer over the moisture field preventing convection and precipitation.

Tropical storm Marty located off of Mexico is being blocked by a large high pressure dome installed by a HAARP transmitter, preventing its northbound movement and the storm will instead move in over mainland Mexico.

 Marty is being targeted by a microwave transmitter as it closes in on the mainland.

Tropical storm Niala near Hawaii continues to be throttled back by microwave transmitter (HAARP) attacks as it faces strong Easterly headwinds.

Watch the video to see exactly what they are doing and have been doing to California!

A lack of rain is way too simple an explanation for these conspiracy theorists – it’s why it hasn’t rained much in four years that matters: the US government is geoengineering the California climate.

Your Gifts

Finding Your Gifts


FINDING YOUR GIFTS


"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant" (1 Corinthians 12:1).

Spiritual gifts are often set aside when confused with the perfecting of natural talent.

I have read through a lot of material on the subject of finding your spiritual gifts.

The intellect of man always seems to have some natural, logical explanation for taking out the supernatural. 


Most teachings on Finding Your Spiritual Gifts would better be titled, Finding Your Natural Talents.

Gifts of the Spirit are spiritual, not natural. 

You cannot find your spiritual gift by finding what you are naturally good at.

Chances are your spiritual gifts will have nothing to do with what your natural talents are.

When we are weak, He is strong.

Your natural strong points are probably not your spiritual strong points.

How can anybody be good at working miracles?

If somebody were to have the gift of miracles, could anybody say that it was because they were good at it? Our natural strengths are almost never our spiritual strengths.

The prophet Amos recognized this when God called him to prophesy, he said in Amos 7:14-15, "...I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet’s son; but I was an herdsmen and a gatherer of sycamore fruit: And the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel."

He was good at being a herdsman and gathering fruit, but being a prophet, that was something new, it was spiritual. It is not something that is hereditary, or by any means a naturally developed ability.

Gifts of the Spirit go beyond human boundaries. They enable a change of circumstances for a higher purpose. God uses spiritual gifts to alter the natural course of events.

There are many gifts of the Spirit and nine of them are clearly listed in 1 Corinthians 12.

You cannot pick and choose which one of the nine best suits your religious preference and then leave the others out.

God’s Word is not partially inspired, every word is pure.


Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights. All nine of the gifts that are listed in 1 Corinthians 12 are good and perfect.

The Pharisees of today say that it is wrong to seek signs and wonders and miracles. The Bible says to pursue them. "Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts..." (1 Corinthians 14:1).

The disciples prayed for miracles, they sought the Lord for signs and wonders. They prayed in Acts 4:29 –31, "And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thy hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. And when they prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the Word of God with boldness."

Did God shake the place in His disapproval, or His approval?

To seek an experience is good when you seek to experience God.

My Chicken Susie And Her Buddy Oliver

I needed a new dish washer. 


My old one was not getting the dishes clean and it was doing goofy stuff and making strange noises. So like most people I did not want to buy a lemon that I would regret purchasing, and I wanted to get the best one for my money.

 I did my research on the net. I found the fatal flaws in some of the available brands and models. I checked out all of the reviews. And I located the best performers and the ones with the least after market problems.

Then it began. 


Even though I had already purchased a Bosch dishwasher and was using it, ads began to show up suggesting multiple brands of Dish washers that I might like. This went on for quite some time.

Then I did some research on wood floors and the same thing happened.

 It was nice that I got ads delivered to my eyes. But the truth is they always came after the fact. I mean after I had made my purchase. So for me personally the ads were late in coming.

I no longer had a need for the targeted ads.

I do like the ads. It makes sense to target people with what they may be searching for.

 Since I like it I will never opt out of the ad system. The privacy aspect is nothing, they are only interested in serving up relevant ads to all of us. It really is a great system if you think about it.

But if you don't like targeted ads, here is some info for you...

"Do you know what data the 1300+ tracking companies have on you? Privacy blogger Dan Tynan didn't until he had had enough of being stalked by grandpa-friendly Jitterbug phone ads. Tracking company BlueKai and its partners had compiled 471 separate pieces of data on him

Some surprisingly accurate, some not (hence the Jitterbug ad). 

But what's worse is that opting out of tracking is surprisingly hard.

 On the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out Page you can ask the 98 member companies listed there to stop tracking you and on Evidon's Global Opt Out page you can give some 200 more the boot — but that's only about 300 companies out of 1300. 

And even if they all comply with your opt-out request, it doesn't mean that they'll stop collecting data on you, only that they'll stop serving you targeted ads."

The dish washer I choose is very quite, so much so that there is a red laser light that shines a red dot on the kitchen floor to let me know that it was indeed working.

The glasses come out of it sparkling clean and shiny with that squeaky clean feel to them.

I am totally satisfied.

The internet is awesome!

But to top all of this off my wife is ecstatic with my purchase, which over the long haul is the main objective for me.


The best part is I do not have to take my turn at washing the dishes...LOL!

I love the net, I truly do!
