2019-04-15 High-tech 3D testing in Vancouver Arena

1)  High tech security screening, that sounds like that used in airports that has been associated with cancer among workers, is going to be tested in Vancouver’s arena, without telling people where the scanners are. Shooting signals where people might be standing, leaning, where small children’s heads would be close to the screen. What about people with medical devices? At airports, a person can opt out. Not here. No choice, no notification.

Listen to the video and please consider making comments. Perhaps we need to write to Mr. Aquilini.

Vancouver’s Rogers Arena to test new 3D imaging, AI technology to detect hidden weapons

“Georgia-based Liberty Defense Ltd. announced they have signed a memorandum of understanding with Rogers Arena to test their new Hexwave system within or near the arena, which serves as the home of the Vancouver Canucks.

According to Liberty Defense CEO Bill Riker, the system detects concealed weapons using radar energy to create 3D images, then uses “a form of artificial intelligence to then go ahead, in real time, to see if there’s a threat there.”

The technology can detect both metallic and non-metallic weapons, Riker says…

Vancouver Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini serves as an adviser for the tech company.

2) More satellites are being authorized, ensuring that soon every inch of the earth will be hit with 5G microwave or milliwave signals, just so people can have access to the internet wherever they go. And our federal government is supporting this effort, with schools and children being prime targets.

Why You Should Care about a Space-Based Internet

“Sometime in the next decade you can expect something on the order of 16,000 satellites to be operating in low Earth orbit and providing internet access to anyone with the ability to access them. Those internet satellites would be interconnected into a global mesh that would include a series of ground stations located around the world. If all goes according to plan, nearly everyone in the world would have access to reliable, low-latency, high-speed internet access whenever they wanted it… 

This anticipated growth in global internet services will have a profound impact on IT and enterprise communications in two ways. First, it will add an estimated 4 billion potential users to a global internet as both customers and as internet users. Telesat and OneWeb specifically state that part of their mission is to close the digital divide by providing internet access to unserved and underserved areas. The Canadian government is supporting Telesat’s effort in this areaOneWeb has connecting schools and students as a major point on its service timeline.”

 3)  The US FBI has been hacked, revealing information about their agents, using special ransomware packages.

Thousands of Identities, personal information published in FBI-related hack.

The hacked materials, which were released late last week and obtained Sunday by NBC News, include names, job descriptions, email addresses and, in some cases, street addresses of more than 23,000 people in multiple databases. More than 1,000 of the email addresses belong to the FBI.gov domain and the domains of other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. 

The materials appear to have been made public as a proof of concept, establishing that the hackers are to be taken seriously. The hacking group — which NBC News isn’t naming, along with other information that could lead to the materials — said it was in possession of even more sensitive information that it hoped to sell. 

In posts that continued on Sunday, the hackers also prominently promoted what they described as a ransomware encryption package that they hoped to provide to other hackers.”

 4)  Week of protest in UK, New Zealand and elsewhere about climate change. It may take similar protests to draw attention to microwave radiation, 5G, our children’s health.

‘Shut the country down’: British climate group Extinction Rebellion heads to US 

““This is a coordinated rebellion that targets industry and government indefinitely, to shut the country down,” Ruiz said. “In my 30 years plus of activism I’ve never seen so many everyday people worried in such a visceral way, for themselves, their children, their grandchildren. It’s unprecedented.” 

Some activists hope the arrival of Extinction Rebellion will be a watershed moment for the US environmental movement, shifting it from what they see as a tepid response to the cavalcade of disasters threatening the livability of the planet. Extinction Rebellion is aimed at spurring a muscular, punkish outpouring of civil disobedience, snarling cities and frogmarching politicians towards meaningful action.”

“An international week of civil disobedience to avert climate, ecological and human catastrophe. It starts in New Zealand. In Britain, where the group began, protesters will gridlock London by blocking roads and it’s underground rail network [1]. Here, actions will be less disruptive than planned as the first day of action is the one month commemoration of the Christchurch massacre.”
