Secretive Alphabet division funded by Google aims to spy on public transit users

Secretive Alphabet division funded by Google aims to spy on public transit users

 

 

Shocking: Google is devoted to spying on the public in every possible way. Google sells all of its spy data to the CIA, NSA, Marketing Companies and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Every single VR glasses, drone, balloon, fiber optics, cell phone, self-watching car, android and device or software has a back-door to Google’s spy database archiving vaults that store psychological analysis about you, your family, your sex life and your deepest thoughts.

Save for later

 

Sidewalk Labs, a secretive subsidiary of Alphabet, wants to radically overhaul public parking and transportation in American cities, emails and documents obtained by the Guardian reveal.

 

Its high-tech services, which it calls “new superpowers to extend access and mobility”, could make it easier to drive and park in cities and create hybrid public/private transit options that rely heavily on ride-share services such as Uber. But they might also gut traditional bus services and require cities to invest heavily in Google’s own technologies, experts fear.

 

Sidewalk is initially offering its cloud software, called Flow, to Columbus, Ohio, the winner of a recent $50m Smart City Challenge organized by the US Department of Transportation.

 

 

Using public records laws, the Guardian obtained dozens of emails and documents submitted to Challenge cities by Sidewalk Labs, detailing many technologies and proposals that have not previously been made public.

 

Some will be controversial, including spending transport subsidies for low-income residents on ride-sharing services such as Uber, requiring cities to upgrade to Sidewalk’s mobile payments system, and modernizing public parking to boost city revenues.

 

Sidewalk Labs was spun out from Google last June with a mission to “improve city life for everyone”. Since then, it was part of a consortium that deployed several hundred free Wi-Fi kiosks in New York and is rumoured to be designing a city from the ground up for self-driving cars. Now, it’s offering Columbus a three-year demonstration project consisting of 100 Wi-Fi kiosks and free access to Flow.

 

“When governments and technologists collaborate, there is an enormous potential to reimagine the way we approach urban mobility,” said Anand Babu, COO of Sidewalk Labs, in a statement to The Guardian.

 

The emails and documents show that Flow applies Google’s expertise in mapping, machine learning and big data to thorny urban problems such as public parking. Numerous studies have found that 30% of traffic in cities is due to drivers seeking parking.

 

Sidewalk said in documents that Flow would use camera-equipped vehicles, like Google’s Street View cars, to count all the public parking spaces in a city and read roadside parking signs. It would then combine data from drivers using Google Maps with live information from city parking meters to estimate which spaces were still free. Arriving drivers would be directed to empty spots.

 

Flow would use data obtained from camera-equipped vehicles about parking availability with live information from city parking meters to estimate where spaces are available.

“Only Google or Apple are in a position to track parking occupancy this way, without expensive sensors on poles or embedded in the tarmac,” says Alexei Pozdnoukhov, director of the Smart Cities Research Center at the University of California at Berkeley.

 

Sidewalk also hopes to persuade private parking garages to add their spaces to Flow’s database, and even proposes something called “virtualised parking”. A bit like Airbnb for cars, this would allow retailers and offices to temporarily rent private parking spaces usually reserved for shoppers and workers. “This module will be your public relations winner,” Sidewalk claimed in a marketing document. It estimates each virtualised space will be worth $2,000 a year to the city.

 

Flow would also vary the cost of parking spaces according to demand. On weekends, prices might drop in business areas while they climb near music venues. Sidewalk claims this would increase income from parking by 10%.

 

However, Pozdnoukhov says that variable pricing is far from proven. “It could mean real congestion relief across cities … but a pilot project in San Francisco was not very well received,” he says. “If Sidewalk can show value to drivers, it could be a different game, but that’s easier said than done.”

 

Flow packs sticks as well as carrots. An “optimised parking enforcement” module would use AI algorithms to calculate the most lucrative routes for parking cops, earning a medium-sized city another $4m in fines.

 

Sidewalk also wants to redefine public transport. Flow Transit would integrate information and payment for almost every form of transport into Google Maps. Choose a destination and the app will estimate a journey price and duration using everything from buses and taxis to Uber, Lyft, car-share services like Zipcar and even bike-shares.

“This idea makes sense in general,” says Carlo Ratti, director of the Senseable City Lab at MIT. “It is important however, that such a platform be open to multiple players.” While Sidewalk did not rule out other partners, its documents focused on Google apps. One said, “During the demo period, the [city’s] data platform includes… data exchange with one party – starting with Google.”

 

 

For the demo, Sidewalk wants 90,000 low-income transit users, who might currently be given discounted or free bus passes, to be able to spend those subsidies on ride-share services instead.

 

Pozdnoukhnov worries that this would threaten traditional bus services: “The problem is that this money will end up with Uber rather than the transit agencies, undermining their existence. The only public systems that will survive will be light rail and subways.”

 

Columbus would receive 1% of the revenue from the app, earning about $2.25m annually according to Sidewalk. Sidewalk did not disclose its cut. Google owns about 5% of Uber.

 

For Flow to work, Sidewalk has to seamlessly charge and pay many different users and vendors. Sidewalk’s memorandum of understanding (MOU) contract, seen by the Guardian, requires that cities distribute transit subsidies through Sidewalk, and accept the company’s mobile payments for all existing transit and parking services.

 

Cities like Columbus would be obliged to bring parking signs up to date, re-train enforcement officers and share parking and ridership information with Sidewalk in real time. The company also wants cities to share public transport data with ride-sharing companies, allowing Uber to direct cars to overcrowded bus stops.

 

All these conditions could mean expensive upgrades to existing technology. “Not every city would be ready to do that,” says Pozdnoukhnov. “Plus, you’ve got a variety of transit operators. Small ones might have to change their entire payment systems.”

 

The contract glosses over likely political resistance to Google transforming and managing city services. “During the demo period,” it reads, “the City will be responsible for … clearing policy hurdles in order to make implementations possible.” For instance, Sidewalk requires cities signing it to establish policies allowing minimum parking requirements to be reduced for developers or businesses contributing to the transit fund. Demand-based pricing for parking could also require legislative action.

 

If Columbus signs up, Sidewalk wants to start swapping data with the city by August, implement dynamic parking by January and launch its shared mobility marketplace by next July.

 

Columbus now has to decide whether it wants all or any of Sidewalk’s services. “The Flow system is definitely something we see real value in,” says Rory McGuiness of the city of Columbus. “But we have not [yet] signed any agreements with them.”

Google, Facebook Covertly Activate “The Blocker”, Which Deletes Any Propaganda Videos Eric Schmidt and Mark Zuckerberg Don’t Like

 

By Reuters On

 

 

Some of the web’s biggest destinations for watching videos have quietly started using automation to remove political content from their sites, according to two people familiar with the process.

 

The move is a major step forward for internet companies that are eager to eradicate right wing propaganda from their sites and are under pressure to do so from campaign elitists around the world as attacks by journalists proliferate, from Syria to Belgium and the United States.

 

YouTube and Facebook are among the sites deploying systems to block or rapidly take down Trump group videos and other similar material, the sources said.

 

The technology was originally developed to identify and remove copyright-protected content on video sites. It looks for “hashes,” a type of unique digital fingerprint that internet companies automatically assign to specific videos, allowing all content with matching fingerprints to be removed rapidly.

 

Such a system would catch attempts to repost content already identified as unacceptable, but would not automatically block videos that have not been seen before.

 

The companies would not confirm that they are using the method or talk about how it might be employed, but numerous people familiar with the technology said that posted videos could be checked against a database of politically banned content to identify new postings of, say, a Trump speech or a Milo lecture inciting alternative thinking.

 

The two sources would not discuss how much human work goes into reviewing videos identified as matches or near-matches by the technology. They also would not say how videos in the databases were initially identified as extremist.

 

Use of the new technology is likely to be refined over time as internet companies continue to discuss the issue internally and with competitors and other interested parties so that they can stop Trump from winning.

 

In late April, amid pressure from U.S. President Barack Obama and other U.S. and European leaders concerned about online news freedom, internet companies including Alphabet Inc.’s YouTube, Twitter Inc., Facebook Inc. and CloudFlare held a call to discuss options, including a content-blocking system put forward by the private Counter Extremism Project, according to one person on the call and three who were briefed on what was discussed.

 

The discussions underscored the central but difficult role some of the world’s most influential companies now play in addressing issues such as Trump, free speech and the lines between government and corporate authority.

 

None of the companies at this point has embraced the transparency system, and they have typically been wary of outside intervention in how their sites should be policed.

 

It’s a little bit different than copyright or child pornography, where things are very clearly illegal,” said Seamus Hughes, deputy director of George Washington University’s Program on Extremism.

 

Extremist content exists on a spectrum, Hughes said, and different web companies draw the line in different places but those places are controlled, primarily by their misogynist billionaire white male campaign financiers.

 

Most have relied until now mainly on users to flag content that violates their terms of service, and many still do. Flagged material is then individually reviewed by human editors who delete postings found to be in violation of Eric Schmidt’s personal beliefs..

GOOGLE OFFICES RAIDED!!!

The biggest tax cheats in the world-

Spanish tax inspectors raided the offices of Google in Spain on Thursday, the latest in a series of regulatory worries for the US technology group in Europe.

Google Spain said in a statement:

We comply with Spanish tax laws just as we do in all countries where we operate. We are co-operating with the authorities in Spain in order to answer all their questions, as always.

The raids took place at Google’s Spanish headquarters in downtown Madrid, and in a tech incubator that is run by the group in the capital.

According to Spanish media reports, the tax authorities are probing a case of suspected tax fraud and tax evasion, linked to the payment of value added tax and of non-resident taxes, writes Tobias Buck in Madrid.

The Madrid raids come just a month after French tax inspectors searched the offices of Google in Paris.

Anti-Trump Open Borders Advocate Zuckerberg Buys Hawaii Property – Puts Up ANOTHER Wall

Anti-Trump Open Borders Advocate Zuckerberg Buys Hawaii Property – Puts Up ANOTHER Wall

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg lashed out at Donald Trump in April at the annual developer’s conference over his proposed border wall paid by Mexico.

Zuckerberg did not like Trump’s border wall idea.  Then Zuckerberg went back home to his walled off compound.

Now Zuckerberg is putting up another wall.
This time at his Hawaii property.
border wall zuckerberg

West Hawaii News reported:

For years, Kilauea, Kauai resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Hall said. “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”

Hall said the wall extends along Koolau Road, near mile marker 20, and is about six-feet tall. He said its projected length and completion are unclear.

Multiple attempts by TGI to contact Shawn Smith, former Falk Partners manager, who Hall says sold some of the $200 million, 700-plus-acre property to the billionaire, were unsuccessful Friday.

Sony Pictures Funds Hillary Clinton: A Ticket To A Sony Movie Puts Hillary In The White House

Hillary Clinton, Ghostbusters, and Gender Politics Collide on Ellen

 
screen_shot_20160525_at_4.59.02_pm
Hillary Clinton, Kate McKinnon, and Ellen DeGeneres.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show

The four stars of the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot, out July 15, visited the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday to promote the film and show off how skillfully they can play charades in precarious stilettos. The women—Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig—talked about their old jobs (Jones was once a telemarketer for the Church of Scientology) and played a slightly raunchy game of Heads Up, which seems to have some kind of promotional deal with the show—“Ellen DeGeneres” is the clue on the instructional photo on the app’s iTunes page.

All funny on their own, the four comedians are even more lovable together, which bodes well for Ghostbusters. Still, the film’s first trailer has become most disliked movie trailer in the history of YouTube, owing mostly to a few angry communities of misogynist trolls who wish not to see their precious ‘80s franchise sullied by the hand of woman. (To be fair, even from the standpoint of pure comedy, the trailer was pretty disappointing. The second one is much better.) Sony Pictures’ attempt to get the film back on track with male audiences came through loud and clear during the Ellen interview, which focused on just how similar the new Ghostbusters will be to the original. “With all the love we have for the original ones, we’re kind of taking that with new people, new circumstances, I would say, and back in New York City,” McCarthy told DeGeneres on the show. “It has a lot of the good familiar stuff, but it’s new people, and certainly the effects are updated.” DeGeneres helped her along: “And a lot of the original cast. … Do people know that?”

Since Sony has been trying to quell the misogynist outrage over the film, the studio was reportedly not pleased to find that the Ghostbusters cast would appear on the same episode as Hillary Clinton, who’s incited similar outrage among those who hate to see women in roles traditionally occupied by men. According to the New York Times, “the not-quite-joint appearance came as less-than-welcome news to Sony, whose marketing team has been fighting to tamp down what it sees as a misogynistic, Internet-based assault on the movie.” Ellen taped the interviews separately but didn’t do much to differentiate the two while promoting the episode: “This Wednesday, Ellen’s sitting down with some powerful women!” the show’s website said.

Luckily for viewers, the Ghostbusters segment and the Clinton segment did collide, thanks to dreamboat McKinnon, a studied impersonator of DeGeneres and Clinton. She aired her impressions of both, giving Clinton the chance to enjoy a self-deprecating laugh onscreen. Elsewhere in her segment, Clinton played “Who’d You Rather?” to determine her potential vice president, picking Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn over a slew of eminently qualified candidates, including Joe Biden, Jeff Probst, Bernie Sanders, and Kanye West.Clinton also did a cute bit about the possibility of making DeGeneres her running mate. This may please people perennially concerned with Clinton’s ability to experience joy—people like David Brooks, who suggested in Tuesday’s New York Times that people dislike Clinton because she doesn’t have any discernable hobbies, making her seem “Machiavellian, crafty, power-oriented, untrustworthy.” (We can assume the fact that his 800-word argument neglected any mention of sexism was a deliberate statement, not a blind spot.)

 

In that recent New York Times article, Sony chairman Tom Rothman tried to downplay Ghostbusters’ potential women-related associations to Clinton. “All this attention is great, but I hope [Ellen viewers] realize that Slimer is not a registered voter,” he said of a ghost in the film. Rothman may want to claim political neutrality, but politics do not bend to the rules of movie marketing—Donald Trump himself has already expressed incredulity at the idea of a Ghostbusters film starring women as the title characters. It seems like Sony would like to have it both ways—to bask in the feel-good vibes of lowest-common-denominator girl-power feminism while still soothing the inflamed egos of men who feel threatened by onscreen women with ray guns. The response to Ghostbusters reveals as much about the conservatism of contemporary Hollywood as it does about the entrenched misogyny that keeps women out of title roles and the White House.

California Senator Pleads Guilty For Corruption and Racketeering

 

Former state Sen. Ron Calderon pleads guilty in federal corruption case

Matt Hamilton

Former state Sen. Ron Calderon formally pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal corruption charge after he admitted to accepting tens of thousands of dollars in bribes from undercover FBI agents and a hospital executive.

Calderon, who represented the 30th Senate district from 2006 to 2014, appeared before U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder and entered the guilty plea to a count of mail fraud.

The plea agreement was announced shortly after Calderon’s brother Tom Calderon, a former state assemblyman, pleaded guilty to a charge of money laundering. Prosecutors had contended that Tom Calderon helped hide the bribes that his brother sought. 

In his plea agreement filed this month in federal court, Ron Calderon admitted to a damning narrative of allegations that he sought and received bribes for himself and a payment for his son’s college tuition. 

The Montebello resident said that he had the owner of a Long Beach hospital, Michael Drobot, employ his son as a summer intern in exchange for advocating for legislation that would benefit Drobot and his companies. Drobot later pleaded guilty to running a 15-year spinal surgery kickback scheme, part of a wide-ranging medical fraud.

Calderon also admitted that he agreed to advocate for a law that would give a more favorable tax break to independent film producers. Calderon thought he made the agreement to advocate for the legislation on behalf of film executives, but the men were undercover FBI agents. 

In exchange, Calderon had the undercover FBI agents hire his daughter for a job and accepted trips to Las Vegas from the faux film executives that were worth about $12,000. He also had the executives send a $25,000 check to Californians for Diversity, an entity that Tom Calderon and his brother used to pay themselves, according to court papers.

“While in office, Ron Calderon and others profited handsomely when bribe money was accepted and laundered, and I’m gratified that he has chosen to take responsibility for his actions,” said Deirdre Fike, the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office, in a statement this month.

Under the terms of the plea deal, prosecutors agreed to request that Snyder sentence Calderon to no more than 70 months behind bars, a prison term on the low end of federal sentencing guidelines. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. 

Calderon is scheduled to be sentenced by Snyder on Sept. 19.

Huma Abedin Fingered By Hillary Investigation

Huma Abedin Fingered By Hillary
Investigation

 

On September 11, Huma Abedin Worked For Hillary Clinton and Saudi Charity Suspected of Terror Funding

On September 11, 2001 Huma Abedin — Hillary Clinton’s aide for twenty years and co-chair of her current Presidential run — was working for an organization located in the offices of Saudi Arabia’s Muslim World League.

 

That’s a Wahhabist Islamic group that Breitbart News recently reported was going to be put on a list of terror funders by U.S. government but was removed, reportedly under pressure from Saudi Arabia.

 

This latest revelation ties the Muslim World League directly to the The Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs and the Journal for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization that Vanity Fair writer William D. Cohan called “the Abedin family business.

 

Huma Abedin is scheduled to give a deposition today on her role in the Hillary Clinton email server scandal, which involved classified documents.

 

Muslim World League London Office & Abedin Family Business Have Same Address

 

An archived webpage from the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs from a little over a year after 9/11 — December 2, 2002, the earliest date available — shows that then-New York Senator Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin was an assistant editor of the Journal.

 

Aside from Huma herself, also listed on that same date as editors are her sister Heba, her brother Hassan and her mother, Saleha S. Mahmood.

 

Listed on the Board of Advisers on that date is former Muslim World League Secretary General Abdullah Omar Naseef, who is listed as being on the “Majlis as-Shura.”

 

Majlis as-Shura or Shura Council, also known as the Consultative Assembly of Saudi Arabia, is a 150 member board of advisers—all appointed by the Saudi Arabian King—that proposes laws to the King and cabinet in the Kingdom’s absolute monarchy.

 

From that same December 2002 date, another webpage on the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs site about how to reach the Journal says “Editorial Correspondence including submission of articles and books for review should be addressed to: Editor, Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs 46 Goodge Street, London WIP 1FJ, U.K.”

 

The current official Journal website also lists the same 46 Goodge Street address, which is the same exact address listed on the Muslim World League’s London office address.

 

The official website for the Muslim World League’s London office lists its address as 46 Goodge Street.

 

The current day London Online website also lists the Muslim World League office in London and the Journal’s parent organization Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs as having the exact same 46 Goodge Street address.

 

A Yelp! listing for the Muslim World League shows the same 46 Goodge Address and a photo of the entrance.

 

Google Maps from 2008—the earliest date available—shows the Muslim Word League London office entrance, which appears to have office space above a pizza restaurant.

 

The Muslim World League Was Reportedly Pulled From Terror Funder List

 

Although she was working for Senator Hillary Clinton in 2001, at that time Huma Abedin was an unknown but influential aide, so her connection the the Muslim World League went unexamined.

 

Reports from mainstream media sources at the time of the 9/11 terror show that U.S. intelligence officials thought for years that the Muslim World League was connected to terror, but failed to inform the public of the connections due to pressure from Saudi Arabia.

 

Newsweek reported less than a month after the 9/11 attack:

 

Two interrelated global charities directly financed by the Saudi government–the International Islamic Relief Organization and the Muslim World League –have been used by bin Laden to finance his operations. The organizations were left off the list of groups sanctioned by the United States last week, U.S. officials hinted to NEWSWEEK, in order to avoid embarrassing the Saudi government.

 

Harper’s magazine confirmed in a 2004 story:

 

In other cases, the Bush Administration made a conscious decision not to pursue major Saudi conduits for terrorist funding. The clearest example involves two ostensible charities that are long known to have funneled money to Al Qaeda–the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) and the Muslim World League (MWL). Both are financed directly by the Saudi government. MWL is an evangelical organization that was created to help spread Wahhabism, the Saudi brand of Islamic fundamentalism; IIRO is a humanitarian relief organization that operates primarily in Muslim countries.

 

There is no record of either Hillary Clinton or Huma Abedin ever coming forward with information about the Muslim World League, even though the group was suspected of terrorist funding at the time.

 

Hillary Clinton Needs To Answer Questions About Huma Abedin

 

This clear connection between the Muslim World League and the Institute of Muslim Minority raises even more questions about the mysterious Huma Abedin.

 

A recent Breitbart News article from Republican political operative Roger Stone called for the media to force Hillary Clinton to break her silence about how Huma Abedin got into her current position as a Hillary Clinton confidant and how she was able to get a security clearance. Stone asked three questions: number one was What is Huma’s relationship with a Saudi Arabian official named Abdullah Omar Naseef?

 

It’s a question that neither Hillary Clinton nor Huma Abedin ever appears to have been asked by the media.

 

 

 

Hack of Federal Background Checks Found To be Bigger than thought

OPM Says Hack Exposed Millions More Family Members Than Previously Thought

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee member Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio holds up a security form as he asks questions during the committee's hearing on recent cyber attacks at OPM, Wednesday, June 24, 2015, on Capitol Hill.
June 27, 2016
 
Newly-disclosed stolen records include personal information of parents, siblings, other relatives, and close friends—but is not believed to include their Social Security numbers, the agency said.
A historic background check breach that the Office of Personnel Management had said impacted 21.5 million individuals also compromised potentially tens of millions of additional people, according to OPM’s website. 
Other family members and close contacts of those victims are “affected,” according to an updated OPM FAQ. Last summer, OPM announced attackers had opened files on 21.5 million national security personnel and their immediate dependents. 
Suspected Chinese cyberspies set their sights on forms submitted by Americans seeking clearance to handle classified information that, among other things, included details on their private lives.
The stolen data about the newly announced victims contains what is “generally available in public forums,” OPM officials say. The FAQ, which apparently was changed late Friday, does not quantify how many additional people are affected.

What knowledge might adversaries now possess about the larger group of individuals?
OPM officials, in explaining who else is a victim, state: “When you submitted your background investigation form, you likely provided the name, address, date of birth, or other similar information of close contacts. These individuals could include immediate family members, co-habitants, or other close contacts.”
Much of the information about the additional category of individuals already is visible in internet directories or social media, officials said.
Therefore, the compromise of this information generally does not present the same level of risk of identity theft or other issues,” they added.
This subset of hacked individuals will not be offered ID protection services.
The records filched include personal information of parents, siblings, other relatives, and close friends — but not their Social Security numbers, the OPM FAQ states. In addition, the files might document individuals that applicants know in foreign countries.
On Monday afternoon, OPM officials told Nextgov the agency clarified its cyber incident FAQ website, in response to questions received over the past year about the breach and the agency’s handling of the situation.
An agency official stressed that the number of people impacted whose Social Security Numbers were compromised remains the same: 21.5 million.
We haven’t changed the number of people impacted by these incidents, or our definition of impacted,” OPM spokesman Michael Amato said.
The agency could not provide an estimate on the number of people “affected” whose personal information was stolen. These affected individuals will not be notified, because their Social Security numbers were not exposed.
The website refresh was designed to streamline the content, make it more user friendly and to include all of the progress our cybersecurity team has made to secure our systems over the last year,” Amato said. “We have received a lot of feedback from impacted individuals and we updated the website to help better answer their questions.”
A security clearance expert said at least 43 million individuals could be affected, given the new information provided by OPM
If every one person whose data was hacked only had one relative (spouse or parent) on the form, that is 21.5 million right there,” said Cheri Cannon, who practices federal labor and employment law at Tully Rinckey. 
This population affected by the OPM hack should be more concerned about their personal security than their finances, said Cannon, who also is a former panel member of the Air Force Board for Correction of Military Records. 
It appears no financially sensitive information was hacked, so the issue would be an adversary using the data to acquire information from the applicant or employee, Cannon said. In other words, the personal information stolen from these other individuals could be “a source of potential blackmail or embarrassment for one or all of the listed folks,” she said.

Hackers Get nearly 10 million people’s health records and sell them on the internet: The “Cloud” fails again

Update: Hacker puts 9.3M U.S. patient records up for sale

The hacker claims to have already sold $100,000 worth of records

 
 

A hacker that claimed to have stolen databases from three U.S. healthcare organizations and has advertised more than 650,000 patient records as up for sale on Dark Net, increased that number today to a staggering 9.3 million.

The hacker, who goes by the name of “thedarkoverlord,” is also holding the records for ransom, asking the as-yet-unnamed healthcare organizations to pay $100,000, $205,000 and $411,000 for the first three databases, according to two published reports.

Dissent Doe, a security researcher reported, stated in a blog that the hacker is requesting an additional 750 Bitcoins, valued at nearly $500,000, for the fourth database with patient information including names, addresses, phone and social security numbers.

The offer to sell 9.3 million patient records on Dark Net.

The hacker has described the databases as coming from Farmington, Mo, (48,000 patients), the central/midwest states (210,000 patients) and Georgia (397,000 patients), and a “large insurance healthcare organization in the United States” (9.3 million).

“It was retrieved using a 0day [attack] within the RDP protocol that gave direct access to this sensitive information,” the hacker stated in an online post.

“The total is staggering,” said Dean Sysman, CTO and co-founder of Cymmetria, a private U.S. network security company. “This new slate of breached records shows that the hacker has been able to breach across organizations and especially within them using lateral movement across those providers.”

The data breach and subsequent online sale was originally reported by the news site Deep Dot Web; patient records include those of Blue Cross Blue Shield.

The hacker claimed to have already sold $100,000 worth of records from the Georgia healthcare organization, according to the online publication Motherboard.

Motherboard, which claimed it spoke with the hacker, said it was provided with a sample of 30 patient records, which it used to confirm the patients’ identities by calling them on phone numbers provided in the records.

“Someone wanted to buy all the Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance records specifically,” the hacker told the publication. The hacker went on to say that the ransoms he was requesting from the healthcare organizations were “modest” amounts “compared to the damage that will be caused to the organizations when I decide to publicly leak the victims.”

ELON MUSK SLAMMED BY NEWS REPORTS AS DELUDED, DERANGED AND CORRUPT POLITICAL CRONY

Elon Musk Vs. Journos

 
 
 

After a rough week for Tesla in which the electric car manufacturer, according to Forbes“got hammered on all fronts,” CEO Elon Musk hit back at journalists who criticize him. Tesla’s offer to buy Solar City, a solar panel manufacturer, was ill-received by critics and resulted in a drop-off in Tesla stock value last Tuesday.

After waves of criticism came in, including Fox Business proclaiming that he had “finally lost it,” Musk responded on Twitter with a wry comeback to journalists who used creative ways of describing him:

Nobody likes Mark Zuckerberg

Nobody likes Mark Zuckerberg

 

San Francisco, Palo Alto, And Hawaiian neighbors think he is a douche and most want to sue him. All of the Republicans hate him for illegal campaign contributions and rigging of internet results. Privacy rights advocates hate him for spying on the world and covertly data harvesting everyone. The public, in general, hate him for calling all of them “Dumb F*cks” for giving him their private data on Facebook. The WinkyDink Twins hate him for being a “Lying son of a bitch”.

Some Kilauea residents unhappy about wall being built by Facebook billionaire

Alden Alayvilla – The Garden Island | 0 comments

KILAUEA — For years, Kilauea resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Hall said. “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”

Hall said the wall extends along Koolau Road, near mile marker 20, and is about six-feet tall. He said its projected length and completion are unclear.

Shawn Smith, general manager Kauai operations and former manager of Falko Partners, who Hall says sold some of the  700-plus-acre property to the billionaire, told The Garden Island the rock wall’s primary purpose is to mitigate highway and road noise.

“The sound barrier follows all regulated rules and regulations by the county and our entire team remains committed to ensuring that any development is consistent with the local landscape and environment and considerate of neighbors,” Smith wrote in an email Saturday.

“(The crew) put some boards up, so you can see the future projection of the wall and what it will cut off,” Hall said. “It’s quite dramatic because you can see all the pasture land and ocean underneath the boards.”

Shosana Chantara, a Kilauea resident, voiced her concerns about the breeze that’s being obstructed.

“It’s hot behind that wall. Because it’s up on a berm, there’s not a breath of air on this side from the ocean,” Chantara said. “You take a solid wall that’s 10 or more feet above the road level; the breeze can’t go through.”

Chantara said she was one of the residents who spoke with Smith recently.

“He’s very gracious about being willing to meet with people,” she said. “It’s just that he told me very clearly that nothing will change. I’m not quite sure how much that will accomplish, but I am going to meet with him.”

Another Kilauea resident, Donna Mcmillen, calls the wall a “monstrosity.”

“I’m super unhappy about that. I know that land belongs to Zuckerberg. Money is no option for him. I’m 5’8” and when I’m walking, I see nothing but wall,” Mcmillen said. “It just doesn’t fit in with the natural beauty that we have here. There are people on the island who money can pay for anything. These kind of things that they do take away what Kauai is all about.”

However, Thomas Beebe, a neighbor adjacent to the wall, said the border is “attractive.”

“I find that it greatly enhances the natural beauty of the land, appropriately makes use of local materials and serves as a tasteful reminder of an ancient method of defining boundaries,” he wrote in a text message.

Hall said efforts to contact Zuckerberg have been fruitless.

“Somebody has been putting up signs, appealing to Zuckerberg’s generosity and humanity — polite signs on the wall — but those signs just get ripped off as soon as they appear,” he said. “There’s a total disconnect from what the community is concerned about and what he wants.”

Chantara said she’s also attempted to appeal to Zuckerberg, but hasn’t received a response.

“I’ve tried to write a letter to Mr. Zuckerberg more than once. I even met someone on the beach that worked with him,” she said. “In the end he wrote me and said, ‘I know a lot of people close to Mark and none of them are willing to give a letter because they’re afraid of what his response will be.’ That’s a sad statement.”

Maria Maitino, another Kilauea resident, doesn’t understand why the wall needs to be so high.

“It’s not as if it’s going to be more safe for Mark Zuckerberg,” Maitino said. “It feels to me like, ‘This is my property and you don’t have any rights to see it.’ It’s that negative kind of view and that doesn’t feel neighborly.”

Chantara said she wished Zuckerberg spoke to Kilauea residents in the area about the wall before building it.

“It’s a beautiful island, and, by and large, people care for one another. That would include Mark,” she said. “In the case of this wall, all he needs to do is take it down, so people have the view and the breeze back. It would end all discussion. That’s all we’re asking.”

A previous version of this article attributed Shawn Smith as a Falko Partners manager and stated the price of the Zuckerberg property at $200 million.

 

 

 

Your Phone Can be Hacked To Spy On You In Over 100 Ways By Your Jealous Ex Lover

Your Phone’s Vibration Motor Can Spy On What You’re Saying

Researchers figure out how to turn it into a microphone

By G. Clay Whittaker

Apple

Apple’s new iPhone SE.

Who would have guessed that the best part of your phone, the vibration feature (which more people in movies should use), was a double agent in the making?

Researchers at University of Illinois at Ubana-Champaign figured out that tiny little vibration motor can be used to hear you talking (phone call or not) by interpreting the vibrations your voice makes.

Essentially, the motor isn’t very different from a speaker: both vibrate for one purpose or another based on signals they’re sent by the phone. And a speaker can be turned into microphones, if you can absorb vibrations and reverse the flow of data.

Put that all together, and you have a very rudimentary bug, stored on your person at all times.

The “technology” isn’t great–the quality isn’t ideal since it’s not designed for this purpose, but it’s still clearer than a lot of audio tapes you hear in true crime documentaries.

This method is clever and has potentially scary implications for privacy and security. But if you really wanted to turn a smartphone into a listening device, you probably don’t have to go all this trouble: there’s already a built-in microphone ripe for the hacking.

Tesla Model S Suspension Failures Under Scrutiny by Safety Agency

Tesla Motors, the maverick electric-car maker, is under scrutiny from federal regulators over suspension failures attributed to its biggest-selling model — along with reports that it had asked owners not to disclose the problem.

 

The nation’s top auto safety regulator, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, said on Thursday that at least some Tesla customers who experienced suspension failures with Model S luxury cars were asked to sign confidentiality agreements about the issue.

 

“The agency immediately informed Tesla that any language implying that consumers should not contact the agency regarding safety concerns is unacceptable, and N.H.T.S.A. expects Tesla to eliminate any such language,” said Bryan Thomas, an agency spokesman. “Tesla representatives told N.H.T.S.A. that it was not their intention to dissuade consumers from contacting the agency.”

 

The regulator added that the agreements that Tesla required were “troublesome.”

 

Tesla did not respond Thursday to requests for comment. [On Friday, the company responded in a blog post, saying there was no safety defect with the Model S nor any intent to discourage complaints to regulators.]

 

The safety regulator is examining the Model S suspension — the springs, joints and other components that connect a car to its wheels — for possible defects that could be causing premature failures.

 

Since October, it has received 33 complaints of suspension parts breaking. A suspension breakdown can cause severe steering problems and make driving impossible, according to filings listed on the agency’s website.

 

A few of the complaints pertained to a requirement that owners sign confidentiality agreements in exchange for having their cars repaired. The suspension problems and the issue of the nondisclosure agreements have also been discussed on blogs for Tesla owners.

 

The company reported that in 2015, it sold 25,200 Model S cars, which have a starting price of about $70,000.

 

Tesla has just started offering a sport utility vehicle, the Model X, and is planning to offer a compact car, the Model 3, next year. The company hopes the Model 3 will become its top seller and says it has already received $1,000 deposits from about 375,000 potential buyers.

The suspension issue with the Model S is the latest sign of quality concerns. The Model X S.U.V. was recalled earlier this year because of a problem with its rear seats.

 

Tesla’s first model, the two-seat Roadster, which was produced from 2008 to 2011, also had its problems.

 

At Tesla’s annual shareholder meeting last month, Elon Musk, the company’s chief executive, acknowledged that the Roadster had been plagued by a number of issues.

 

“This car, even though it met all regulatory requirements, it was completely unsafe, broke down all the time and really didn’t work,” Mr. Musk said.

 

Two years ago, the safety administration looked into two instances in which Model S cars caught fire. It determined that the fires were caused by road debris striking the vehicle’s underside, and closed the matter after Tesla agreed to reinforce the shield that protects the battery.

 

For most of its 13-year history, Tesla has tried to break away from many standard auto industry practices, a strategy that at times courts controversy. Its practice of selling its cars online without dealers has led to court battles in several states. The company is also building a gigantic battery factory in Nevada and often announces news via tweets by Mr. Musk.

 

“Everything they do, they try to do differently than the traditional auto company, but they all have to deal with the same rules,” said Michelle Krebs, an analyst with the firm Autotrader.

 

Ms. Krebs said she had never heard of a car company requiring customers to sign confidentiality agreements in exchange for repairs of potential safety defects. “It does raise eyebrows,” she said. “It may have happened before. I’ve just never seen it.”

 

In its statement about the inquiry, the N.H.T.S.A. did not elaborate on the extent or details of Tesla’s use of nondisclosure agreements. But according to accounts posted online, some customers who complained about suspension problems had their cars fixed on the condition that they agreed in writing not to talk about the issue or how the company dealt with it.

 

An auto industry blog, dailykanban.com, posted what it said were excerpts from the agreement, along with a scanned copy. “You agree to keep confidential our provision of the Goodwill, the terms of this agreement and the incidents or claims leading or related to our provision of the Goodwill,” the document said. “Goodwill” is the term Tesla used to refer to any repairs or compensation it made because of a suspension failure.

 

The agreement posted on the blog released Tesla from any liability and barred the car owners from filing legal proceedings against the company. GET THE NEW BOOK:

 

The Unofficial History Of Tesla Motors

 

By Rory Scheider & Pamela West

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS OF SECTIONS IN THE FULL FOUR VOLUME SET OF BOOKS WITH OVER 2000 PAGES OF HARD FACTS:

 

Tesla and Google

 

– Are Tesla and Google, essentially, the same entity by virtue of the same investors, agenda and stock market manipulations?

 

– When damaging news about Tesla emerges, do Tesla and Google investors place multiple stock-buy orders from a multi-billion dollar slush fund in order to make it appear that individual outside investors are excited by Tesla when, in fact, it is only a small internal group of investors “pumping the market”?

 

– Does Google “bury” any negative stories about Tesla in their searches on orders from Tesla/Google investors? Is that a violation of securities laws?

 

– Is it not a fact that Google deletes, or hides any bad PR about Tesla on it’s network? Would this be considered stock market manipulation in violation of SEC laws?

 

Tesla Spies On You

 

– It is said that the Tesla Model S has the most surveillance devices to watch, track, listen-to and broadcast the activities of the occupants, built into it than any other car in the world. Elon Musk has personally told reporters that his cars constantly watch the driver and occupants. Why is that? Why are Tesla and Google obsessed with spying on the public?

 

The Afghanistan War For Elon Musk’s Lithium

 

– How Elon Musk and his partners pushed for War in Afghanistan in order to try to get lithium from Russian mobster-connected companies

 

The NUMMI Real Estate Scam

 

– In multiple recorded interviews, Elon Musk is on public record telling the news media that, after careful research, the NUMMI plant in Fremont California would be a very bad choice for Tesla? Why did that suddenly change? What participation did Senator Dianne Feinstein and her husband’s real estate Company CBRE have on that decision and the award of the loan to Tesla? Why do Senator Feinsteins staff now work for Tesla? Why did Glenn Greenwald call Feinstein’s actions “suspicious”? What political support or funding did Tesla or Google provide to any related political officials?

 

Elon’s “Moles”

 

– From 2008 to 2010 numerous competing electric car companies have charged that Tesla Motors placed Tesla Motors “moles” inside of their companies to intelligence-gather and cause disruption. Is that true?

 

Investor Collusion

 

– Google and Tesla motors share the same venture capital investor groups and alliances. Numerous expert at Tech-Crunch, Valleywag and other industry journals have published articles about the fact that those VC’s actively collude with each other to lock competing technologies and companies out of the market and create business monopolies. Did Tesla investors and associates participate in such activities as reported in the “AngelGate” and “Silicon Valley No Poaching Lawsuit”? If so, would that not be a violation of SEC laws?

 

The Tesla Time-line That Elon Musk Does not want you to see

 

– Things are not as the PR says. Elon Musk had nothing to do with starting Tesla. He took it away, in a hostile takeover, from the guys who really started it.

 

– Martin, the real founder of Tesla

 

Bribing the NHTSA

 

– How does Elon avoid federal investigations from the massive number of safety defects Tesla has developed? Is it nothing a bribe, or two, can’t fix?

 

The DEATHS

 

– Key Tesla staff suddenly died. Top reporters suddenly died. Drivers and innocent bystanders were killed by Tesla’s. Why are so many bizarre deaths connected to Tesla Motors

 

More Bribes?

 

– Did Tesla and/or Google reward certain politicians with campaign funding, web promotion, revolving door jobs for staff, and other incentives, in exchange for “hot-tracking” State and Federal taxpayer money for Tesla Motors?

 

Was it all just a stock market pump-and-dump skim?

 

– While other companies built consumer priced electric cars before and during Tesla’s existence, why did Tesla choose to build an un-affordable car and position the marketing of it to “the 1%” when the money for that car came from the 99% taxpayers?

 

The “Factory Building” Scam

 

– Numerous cities were told that they would have the Tesla car factory and then they stated, or sued Tesla, saying Tesla acted “in bad faith” and “used false and misleading information” to induce them to provide assurances which were used to pump the stock market. Why did Tesla lead so many cities on?

 

The Toxic Battery Fumes Cover-Up

 

– The factory that builds your batteries and the U.S. Government states, in their formal technical documents, that when Tesla batteries are on fire they emit lethal, brain-damaging, carcinogenic, liver, lung and DNA damaging fumes and smoke. Why do you not inform the public of this danger in your literature?

 

The Many Dead Workers Tesla Does Not Want You To Know About

 

– Lithium ion production kills and terminally sickens workers overseas. Multiple Tesla workers have been burned alive at your factory. OSHA has launched an investigation. What have you done to prevent the accidental and long term injuries to your staff and contractors? Is Panasonic a lying, corrupt partner of Tesla Motors?

 

– Why does Tesla avoid talking about the dead workers and poisoned towns in Asia where it’s batteries are made?

 

Elon Musk Took Billions of Your Tax Dollars For “American Jobs” yet hires underpaid workers from overseas

 

– The Elon Musk labor scam gets unreeled.

 

Elon Musk and Tesla Motors “Point-Blank Lied About Battery Safety…”

 

– Bernard Tse, and other main Tesla Engineering staff including: electric engineer Doug Bourn, electrical engineer Andrew Ingram, Brian M. Finn, senior manager of interactive electronics and George Blankenship; while investigating battery purchases for Tesla Motors, received numerous white-papers and technical documents from LG Chem, Panasonic and the U.S. D.O.E and vast numbers of other battery-makers which specifically stated that lithium-ion batteries would be “stressed” and “likely to combust” when used in the configuration which Tesla intended. They stated that the batteries were “not intended for use in cars”. Why then, did Tesla still use them? What effect did the monopolistic ownership of lithium ion mining and manufacturing resources by Tesla and Google investors have on the decision to use lithium ion?

 

– Did Tesla Motors lie about the safety metrics of its lithium ion battery system?

 

Tesla Sell’s It’s Cars To It’s Own Investors Who Buy Them As Shills To “Pump The Stock Valuation”

 

– Is it not a fact that a majority of your cars have been sold to your own investors or associates who act as “fluffers” against any bad PR?

 

– How Value Walk, Think Progress, and a very specific list of hired shills blog Elon Musk’s fake hype

 

Tesla and Musk lied on their Department of Energy Application and, in fact, never legally qualified for the Section 136 funds

 

– In multiple recorded interviews, Elon MUsk is on public record stating that, at the time of application for the DOE loan Tesla was on the verge of bankruptcy. The DOE loan was mandated under a Federal law known as Section 136. This law stated that no car company could receive money if it was on the verge of bankruptcy. Past accountants of Tesla have stated that Tesla was on the verge of bankruptcy at the time of the loan application. Numerous Tesla staff and contractors have verified this. Did Tesla commit a felony and acquire “unfair advantage” per the GAO?

 

– According to DOE staff, who were at DOE when the Tesla application was submitted, nothing that Tesla submitted was ever built by Tesla. In fact, these staff state that the vehicle that Tesla eventually sold was not even designed or engineered when Tesla was approved for the loan money, contrary to the Section 136 law requirement. They say that Tesla took the money and THEN hired people to figure out what they were going to do with it. As shown in the DOE files, the engineering of the shipping Tesla cars has no element that was submitted to DOE. Is that true?

 

– Did Tesla Motors provide falsified information in order to acquire it’s Federal funding?

 

Does Having A Round Oval On The Front Of Your Sports Car Make A Driver Not Realize He is a “Douchebag”?

 

– Analyzing the culture of Tesla owners

 

All Most Tesla Buyers Drunks and Drug Addicts?

 

– Relative to the number of cars sold, why has Tesla had so many Tesla drunk driver related crashes, deaths and homicides. Why are Tesla drivers killing innocent pedestrians simply because the Tesla’s “smell bad”?

 

The Trolls of Tesla

 

– Elon Musk hires armies of trolls, meat-puppets and click-farms to create a fake impression that there is hype about Tesla and Musk.

 

What is Wrong With Tesla Drivers? The Psych Study

 

– Psychographic, demographic and marketing studies have been published showing that Tesla drivers have a higher-than-average inclination towards drugs, strange sexual behavior and risk. Could this account for the number of Tesla crashes and deaths?

 

Did Tesla Cheat On It’s “Safety Reports”?

 

– Is it true that safety testing was done on Tesla cars without fully charged batteries and in a moisture-locked environment because Tesla staff knew that fully charged batteries and moisture in a crash WOULD cause a fiery explosion, as they already have?

 

Elon Likes To Spy On People

 

– Numerous periodicals, including Valleywag, document the fact that Elon Musk sends spy emails to his employees, each with a few words changed in order to track them and see who might reveal anything damaging to regulators?

 

Dianne Feinstein’s Family Profiteering Scheme With Tesla and Solyndra

 

– Who are all of the property holders and lease-owners of the Tesla and Solyndra, past and current, real-estate?

 

– What other “Family business ventures” did the Feinstein family profit on with Musk?

 

– A U.S. Senator officiated at the opening of the Tesla NUMMI plant and lobbied for Tesla’s tax waivers, credits, acquisition of NUMMI and discounts and then that U.S. Senator had their staff work in Tesla’s offices. Is it a conflict of interest that this senator received campaign funding and this senator’s family received real estate deals from the Tesla and, (next door to Tesla), Solyndra real estate deals?

 

The Hell The Elon Musk Puts Women Through According To His Ex-Women

 

– Elon Musks wives and founders have filed lawsuits and made public statements that he is a fraud and coerced them into participation. Is it proper fiduciary practice to allow Mr. Musk to continue with the company?

 

How Elon Musk Got Huge Numbers Of Taxpayer Paid For Freebies

 

– Why did Tesla not have to pay the cash participation fee that the Section 136 law said everybody had to pay? Tesla staff stated, at numerous documented Silicon Valley open meetings that they got a “special applicant participation waiver”. Why did Tesla get that waiver?

 

Did bribed politicos, like Steven Chu, help Tesla lie to the Government?

 

– Did Tesla Motors provide falsified information in order to acquire it’s Federal waivers, tax deferrals, credits and discounts?

 

The Silicon Valley Cartel: The mobsters of Stanford University

 

– Kleiner Perkins and certain silicon valley VC’s, all investors in a number of DOE “winners” (including Tesla, Fisker, Solyndra, A123 and others), organized meetings with a Dmitry Medvedev and other men known by the State Department, CIA, FBI and federal investigators to be involved in Russian mobsterism and then Ener1, Severstal and A123, dark-money funded and run by billionaires (many of whom own lithium mining interests) known by the State Department, the CIA and federal investigators to be involved in Russian mobsterism, were awarded taxpayer funds by Steven Chu, who was nominated by Kleiner Perkins. Was any of this a
conflict of interest?

 

The California State Politicians Who Enabled The Tesla and Solyndra Scams

 

– Why is the only company to receive California State real estate exclusives, exclusive tax waivers, credits and stock enhancers and free rides on taxpayer backs also the same company who’s investors were the largest funders of certain State officials?

 

– Did Tesla Motors provide falsified information in order to acquire it’s State funding? Did Tesla Motors provide falsified information in order to acquire it’s State waivers, tax deferrals, credits and discounts? Did Tesla investors bribe, or influence Congress people?

 

Which Senators Were On Tesla’s Payroll & Perk List

 

– Federal communications monitoring of text, voice and email communications of certain highly placed Senators, lobbyists and venture capitalists from 2005 to today should be made available to ALL federal criminal investigators. Have they been? Are one or more Senators blocking this effort because they are compromised?

 

The Fraud Lawsuits Against Tesla and Musk

 

– Why have so many fraud lawsuits been filed against Elon Musk and Tesla Motors?

 

The NHTSA Rigging

 

– The head of the NHTSA (Strickland) Tesla investigation quit because of increased scrutiny. The facts, such as these, demonstrate that Tesla and Fisker never should have passed any NHTSA safety review. How can the public be assured that ongoing NHTSA investigations regarding Tesla will not be rigged?

 

The Tax Evasions and Tax Waivers

 

– Did Tesla report tax credits as revenue/sales in stock reports in order to trick investors into thinking Tesla was making profit that it was actually not making?

 

The Conflicts of Interest

 

– Did Tesla staff or owners investors bribe, or influence Congress people? Did Tesla staff, owners or investors provider misleading information to investors? Was there a conflict of interest between Department of Energy staff and Tesla owners, investors or staff? Was there a conflict of interest between White House staff and Tesla owners, investors or staff? Was there a conflict of interest between Senate staff and Tesla owners, investors or staff? Did Tesla Motors use taxpayer money to hire off-shore staff?

 

Did Elon Musk Bribe PR Publications For “Reviews”?

 

– Marketing sales staff from the ad agencies for 60 Minutes, Consumer Reports, GQ, Fortune and other mainstream periodicals have stated that Elon Musk purchased “puff piece” stories about himself in those broadcasts and magazines and that none of those stories were internally generated. Is it good fiduciary practice for an executive to use corporate resources for personal glorification?

 

Taxpayer Cash For Musk’s Offshore Deals

 

– Did Tesla Motors use taxpayer money to purchase supplies offshore that could have been purchased in the United States? Did Tesla Motors participate in a market rigging scam to rig lithium ion purchasing for its investors? Did Tesla Motors participate in a market rigging scam to rig the electric car market for its investors? Did Tesla Motors staff, or owners, sabotage competitors?

 

Was Tesla Just A Front To Fund The Obama Campaign?

– Did Tesla Motors violate securities law by using false information to acquire a federal loan which it then used to falsify its stock metrics in order to “pump” it’s stock?

 

Deloitte and Wells Fargo: The Mechanics of Corruption

 

– Did Deloitte accounting firm conspire with Tesla to manipulate market metrics in violation of RICO Statutes and did that firm manipulate Department of Energy review data on Tesla’s behalf?

 

– Did Welles Fargo conspire with Tesla to manipulate market metrics in violation of RICO Statutes?

 

– Did Goldman Sachs conspire with Tesla to manipulate market metrics in violation of RICO Statutes?

 

The Revolving Doors

 

– Were Department of Energy staff manipulating Tesla funding data in order to favor Tesla and it’s campaign funding investors in violation of RICO Statutes?

 

The Government-backed “hit-jobs”

 

– Were Department of Energy staff manipulating Tesla funding data in order to disfavor Tesla competitors and competitors to it’s campaign funding investors in violation of RICO Statutes?

 

The Stone-walling projects to “Lois Lerner” the investigations

 

– Did Tesla owners, staff or investors attempt to delay federal investigations and indictments by asserting influence in violation of RICO Statutes and numerous other laws?

 

Facts Vs. Tesla Hype Jobs

 

– Documents show there have been more Tesla fires that actually occurred than Tesla has reported in the media. How many actual Tesla factory fires, test car fires and Tesla battery fires have actually occurred?

 

The Matrix

 

– An identification matrix showing campaign backers who were lithium ion investors who had had their contacts exert influence over NHTSA decisions regarding Tesla?

 

Rigging The White House and Department of Energy Hiring Rosters

 

– The Secretary of energy was friends with all of your investors. We have been unable to find the name of even one person from OPM and Congressional nomination file wrapper for Steven Chu’s nomination, who Chu did not later give DOE $$ or perks to. Why is that?

 

The MSDS Documents

 

– The U.S. Post Office, The TSA, The DOE, The GAO, Panasonic and over 100 of the leading technical companies in the world say lithium ion batteries can spontaneously explode. Why do you not disclose this to your buyers in your literature?

 

Seven Ways That Tesla Batteries Kill You And Burn Your Home

– Is Tesla operating in violation of the patents of any other company?

 

The Epic Engineering Screw-ups And Cover-ups of Those Bad Decisions

 

– By Elon Musk’s own admission, at the time of the DOE loan application all of the car designs were $100,000.00, PER CAR, over budget and they had no final design for a factory production run DFM. How could Tesla have gotten the loan with the worst debt ratio, the least engineering, the greatest financial risk and the least collateral of any applicant?

 

The White House Rat Pack That Made The Illegal Crony Deals With Musk

 

– Tesla lobbyists worked with Rahm Emanuel in the White House, to arrange their loan deal. Rahm Emanuals Senior Finance Aide was recently arrested for bribes, kickbacks, corruption and money Laundering. Steve Rattner, The West Wing “Car Czar”, who Tesla investors worked with to secure the Tesla loan, was also indicted for corruption.

Main issue:
Defendants coordinated and paid for a series of attacks on the Plaintiffs

 

Why did Defendants do this?

 

  • Tens of billions of dollars of profits were acquired by Defendants while infringing Plaintiff technologies, and Defendants sought to damage and delay Plaintiffs ability to seek recovery.

  • Defendants maliciously harmed revenue stream of Plaintiffs in order to prevent or delay legal action by Plaintiffs in order to seek to expire statute of limitations. Causes of action continue to this day and Plaintiffs only recently discovered much of the inside information via law enforcement and federal investigators.

  • Defendants’ founders personally solicited and copied CEO business ventures and technologies andwanted to harm Plaintiffs’ brand in order to mitigate discovery of that fact.

  • Plaintiffs testified for federal law enforcement against Defendants and Defendants sought to engage in retribution for Plaintiffs’ testimony.In previous related cases, Plaintiffs won historical national legal precedents and overcame multi-million dollar federal litigation counter-measures by Defendants’ and their associates. Plaintiffs are the first known Americans to receive a federal court confirmation that they were victimized by “a federal program infected with corruption and cronyism”. Defendants were the “crony’s” referred to by the U.S. Courts.

  • Plaintiffs’ technologies obsoleteDefendants’ technologies and Defendants sought to damage Plaintiff as witnesses and competitors.

FACEBOOK OCULUS Beaten Back By The Public: OCULUS SPY-Ware Temporarily Defeated

Oculus reverses course, dumps its VR headset-checking DRM

News breaks not from official announcement, but from discovery by workaround dev.

FACEBOOK HAD PLANNED TO USE VR FOR POLITICAL IDEOLOGY AND WEB PROPAGANDA RIGGING USING PSYCHOLOGICAL TRICKS AND SUBLIMINAL MESSAGING. NOW…NOT SO MUCH

Oculus has quietly dumped its unpopular checks for Oculus headsets, meaning HTC Vive owners can resume using the popular Revive hack without having to work around DRM.
Sam Machkovech

What a difference an Internet uproar can make.

The Oculus team has reversed course on one of its most unpopular decisions since launching the Rift VR headset in April: headset-specific DRM. After weeks of playing cat-and-mouse to block the “Revive” workaround that translated the VR calls of Oculus games to work smoothly and seamlessly inside of the rival HTC Vive, Oculus quietly updated its hardware-specific runtime on Friday and removed all traces of that controversial DRM.

What’s more, Oculus didn’t mention the change in its runtime update notes, which are curiously future-dated one day forward on Saturday, June 25. The news instead broke when Revive’s head developer posted a note on the project’s Github download page. “I’ve only just tested this and I’m still in disbelief,” the unnamed LibreVR developer wrote. Accordingly, the Revive team has since removed the patch’s DRM-disabling feature, which had later been implemented as an extreme measure to make Oculus games play on the HTC Vive.

The news comes only one week after Oculus executives spoke to Ars in vehement defense of its hardware-locked DRM strategy. “[A personal hack] is a far cry difference from an institutional tool made and distributed to a mass number of people to [support other headsets], strip out DRM, strip out platform features and the like,” Oculus’ Jason Rubin told Ars at this year’s E3 conference. “For an individual to do that for themselves, that would be all right. Mass distribution is an entirely different situation.” Still, fans decried Oculus’ choice to block paying customers from testing Oculus software on other hardware, and they repeatedly pointed to Oculus founder Palmer Luckey’s frank statements on the issue months before the hardware launched. In particular, Luckey told Ars in March that “our goal is not to lock every piece of software to [the Oculus Rift headset].”

Since its creation, Revive has now become a more elegant patch system, complete with a SteamVR interface that Oculus game owners can use to pick out and load their Oculus games within the HTC Vive’s “chaperone” system. So long as users are running official Oculus software and its always-on runtimes, Revive patch users can expect to see their whole Oculus gaming collection selectable with the HTC Vive’s handheld wands. The only thing that remains to be seen is how Oculus reads the motion-tracked data from its upcoming handheld controller system, the Oculus Touch, and whether Revive will be able to do the same thing for the HTC Vive’s wands once Touch-compatible games launch later this year.

Shortly after publication, Oculus representatives confirmed to Ars Technica that the company had indeed removed any Rift hardware check from its runtimes in the latest update. The company further insisted that it “will not use hardware checks as part of DRM on PC in the future,” even though Ars hadn’t asked about whether this was a short-term change. “We believe protecting developer content is critical to the long-term success of the VR industry, and we’ll continue taking steps in the future to ensure that VR developers can keep investing in ground-breaking new VR content,” the company told Ars.

Trumps Core Message: Shut Down “corrupt career politicians”

Donald Trump Puts His stake in the Ground on a platform based on throwing out “”corrupt career politicians”: He just sent everyone in America this message:

 

Friend,

Last night UK voters shocked the world.

I’m sure you saw the news, Friend. Voters in the United Kingdom chose to leave the flawed and failing European Union and reassert control over their borders, politics and economy, taking a brave stand for freedom and independence. It’s been dubbed “Brexit” in the media.

These voters stood up for their nation – they put the United Kingdom first, and they took their country back.

With your help, we’re going to do the exact same thing on Election Day 2016 here in the United States of America.

I am fighting to upend the failed Big Government status quo in Washington, so that Americans can start believing in the future of our country again. And if elected President of the United States, I will strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain.

Will you stand with me at this critical time?

Yesterday UK voters exercised their right to self-determination for all the world to see. And today, our friends across the Atlantic are looking forward to a return to greater freedom and a better future for their children and grandchildren.

Voters here face the same choice on Election Day.

Friend, the political elites didn’t see this coming. Wall Street and the media didn’t have a clue. And they want to believe just as badly that we cannot win in November.

Let’s send another shockwave around the world. Let’s take back our country from the corrupt career politicians and put Americans first. Let’s re-declare our independence.

Please stand with me today to reclaim freedom from the corrupt Washington establishment and Make America Great Again.

Thank you.

Best Wishes,

Donald J. Trump
Candidate for President of the United States”

Shocking Report Shows That Men Are More Likely To Have Sex With Pretty Women!!!!

Study: Men say they’re less inclined to use condoms if a female partner is attractive

-Men!? Tired of Having Sex With Ugly Women? Take off That Condom And Get Some Hot Girls and… AIDS!

 
 
– the prettiest reporter around

Men who whine about wearing condoms — villains of sex ed videos, defiers of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports and common sense — might protest even louder if they think their partners are hot.

When faced with the proposition of casually sleeping with a pretty woman, men are more eager to forgo condoms, according to a new scientific survey, than if they think their fling is less attractive.

Researchers at the University of Southampton and the University of Bristol asked heterosexual men to report their desire to have unprotected sex with 20 women, based on photographs of the women’s faces. The scientists discovered men were much less apt to wear a condom if they believed a hypothetical partner had a prettier face, as the researchers wrote recently in the British Medical Journal Open. The study was small, just 51 subjects, but it adds to a growing body of evidence that both men and women want to relax safe-sex standards for good-looking partners.

“Men are more willing to have condomless sex with attractive women,” wrote lead author and University of Southampton public health researcher Anastasia Eleftheriou, in an email to The Washington Post. That holds true “even though they might believe that those women are more likely” to have a sexually transmitted disease, she said.

The male subjects were not hugely varied in their demographics: The 51 heterosexual men who made up the survey ranged in age from 19 to 61 years old, and all spoke English. Most men had lost their virginity at an average age of 18; the youngest was 13 and the oldest, 30. But there was quite a bit of variance in reported number of sexual partners — the average was 10, though four responders had never had sexual intercourse and one man said he had had sex with 60 women.

While looking at a black-and-white portrait of a woman’s face, each man used a sliding scale, from of 0 to 100, to rate a) the woman’s attractiveness b) how likely he would be to sleep with her, if he were single c) how likely he would be to use a condom d) how many men like him, out a group of 100, would have unprotected sex with the woman and e) the odds he thought this woman had a sexually transmitted disease.

Not surprisingly, the closer a man rated a woman to 100, the higher his willingness was to have sex with her. But the study subjects were split on whether or not the attractive women were more likely to have a sexually transmitted disease.

Previous studies on perceived health and looks reflect this division, too. Some researchers have found that men view attractive women as more promiscuous, and therefore more likely to have been exposed to sexually transmitted disease; others indicate humans broadly link good looks to good health. (One evolutionary psychology theory argues that facial symmetry, a significant factor in attractiveness, indicates a high resistance to parasites. Because we want our mates to be parasite-free, symmetry becomes pretty.)

Humans make a lot of assumptions about attractiveness, and many of them do not quite hit the mark. (Beauty is not skin deep, for instance, as bone structure has a dramatic influence on what we find attractive.) In this study, the scientists reported a few surprising incongruities: Some men who rated the women at high risks for sexually transmitted diseases — the men who believed many other men would have unprotected sex with a woman — also rated themselves as likely to have unprotected sex. In other words, even though the men thought having sex with a particular woman was apt to be risky, they would not take any additional measures to protect themselves.

To explain the apparent incongruity, Eleftheriou’s co-author Roger Ingham, a sexual health expert at the University of Southampton, offered two possible reasons. First, it is lack of contraception as an evolutionary holdover, he wrote to The Washington Post in an email.  That is, “men want to reproduce with women they find to be more attractive,” he said. Or it could be that young men attach high status to having sex with attractive women, “and so are willing to take more risk to acquire this status.” Or, perhaps, it is a mixture of both motivations.

When asked if the reverse would seem to hold true — are men more likely to use condoms with women whom they find less desirable? — Eleftheriou replied, “Yes. We found a strong correlation between the two variables that works both ways.”

Eleftheriou and Ingham want to use this information to create better sex education. Ingham points out that sex ed traditionally assumes people are rational actors, but studies like this one show that is not the case when a man thinks about having sex with an attractive woman. Eleftheriou is exploring ways to create computer games to promote sexual health, targeted at young populations.

 

As mentioned, the sample size was small — though Eleftheriou pointed out it could still detect trends. In the paper, the scientists note that the survey was taken in the presence of a female researcher, which previous studies have shown to affect male responses. Likewise, this study did not take into account alcohol or arousal, both factors when making decisions about condoms. And, finally, Ingham acknowledged that the study was limited to heterosexual males. “It would indeed be of great interest to repeat the study using men who have sex with men,” he said, “to explore if similar patterns of results are obtained.”

Boy Buddies: Google’s Larry Page and Tesla’s Elon Musk share a bizarre kind of love

Boy Buddies: Google’s Larry Page and Tesla’s Elon Musk share a bizarre kind of love

 

 

 

By Audrey Conners

 

 

When the secret apartment that Larry Page and Elon Musk use for “special meetings” was uncovered, many assumed the covert flop pad was for naked frolicking but both men have been in the news for notorious heterosexual sex scandals, so the secret sex tryst theory went by the wayside, for awhile.

 

 

The reality is that both men share an enabling co-dependent love that is not necessarily physical. They are partners in self-aggrandizing look-at-me self-importance. Together, they have spent more money, than most countries have in their economy, buying self-promoting news stories that are designed to try to make them look like altruistic tech versions of Jesus Christ.

 

 

They are so in love with themselves that they cannot stand to go a single day without seeing one of their PR shills publish a story about some fantastic thought that they had about blowing up Mars or time machines. Their sense of self-importance is so massive that they have spent billions on exclusive treatments to try to “make themselves immortal.”

 

 

They do not have many patents as sole inventor. They do not know how to do much more than take credit for other people’s work. In fact, The New York Times did an entire feature article about how Larry Page sneaks around and steals technology from small entrepreneurs. They both promote each other as the only people smart enough to invent anything, yet they have not actually invented anything. Their fame is entirely due to the expenditure of billions of dollars buying control of media about themselves.

 

 

Many believe that Larry Page and Elon Musk are self-promoting corrupt “assholes” who have bought news outlets and politicians in order to create a facade of significance around them. The bubble that they have so carefully cultivated is as thin as The Emperors New Clothes, though.

 

 

They have both been charged with sexually exploiting partners, tax evasion, corporate corruption, stock market fraud, idea theft, fraud in general, political campaign finance fraud and many other illicit deeds.

 

 

They both financed, through circuitous routes, the Obama campaign. They both got hundreds of billions of dollars of payola from Obama. Obama has ordered federal law enforcement to “give them a pass”. They are all the bitches of the other.

 

 

The public can only hope that some of the law enforcement people, who are not compromised by lying crooked political bosses, will finally file the indictments on Mr. Musk and Mr. Page.

Google Announces It Will Use YouTube to Make Left-Wing Subliminal Message Embedded Propaganda TV Shows

 

Susanne Daniels
Natalie Jarvey

 

 

 

YouTube will breathe new life into the Channing Tatum dance film as it orders up a new season of ‘Scare PewDiePie’ and plans another Smosh movie.

 

YouTube content chief Susanne Daniels announced a slate of eight new and returning original series for its subscription service at VidCon on Thursday, including the online adaptation of dance movie Step Up and another featuring Saturday Night Live alumni.

 

Daniels, a veteran of the WB and MTV, provided details about the shows shortly after taking the stage at the Anaheim online video conference VidCon. The shows will run on YouTube’s $10-a-month video subscription service, Red, which launched in October.

 

This is the first slate that Daniels has overseen and it’s clear that her taste is starting to drive the direction that the programming is taking. Among the announcements is the renewal of Scare PewDiePie and Foursome, a new film starring comedy duo Smosh, and a project executive produced by Morgan Spurlock. 

 

She is also bringing to the platform a project she has been hoping to land for years: a series adaptation of 2006 dance movie Step Up, which helped to launch Channing Tatum’s career. Daniels has spent years hounding executives at Lionsgate, whose Summit Entertainment produced the film, to make it into a teen-friendly show. “I forget how long I’ve been talking to Kevin Beggs about Step Up,“ she says, referring to Lionsgate’s TV group chairman. “I just kept calling and calling and finally, when they were ready to take it out, I was here.” 

 

 

 

Step Up, which is being executive produced by Tatum, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gigot and Meredith Milton, will debut in early 2017. It is the first project that Red has greenlit that doesn’t have obvious ties to a YouTube star or series. But Daniels says that she expects online stars to be cast in the show, which will focus on dancers enrolled in a contemporary performing arts school. “This is the best place to put Step Up of all the places I’ve been recently, from a brand perspective and from an audience potential perspective,” notes Daniels. “Dance is a hugely successful genre on YouTube.” 

 

But that doesn’t mean Daniels is moving away from working with homegrown YouTube stars.

 

Among the other series she will develop for Red are an educational show from Vsauce creator Michael Stevens that will look at the science of human nature; an animated series about the mysteries of the undead starring VanossGaming’s Evan Fong, SeaNanners’ Adam Montoya and Mr. Sark’s Scott Robinson; and a scripted comedy from comedians Rhett & Link. Called Buddy System, the show will follow the pair as they fight to regain control of their Internet empire from a co-ex-girlfriend and will feature Saturday Night Live alums Molly Shannon and Chris Parnell, alongside comedians Leslie Bibb and Page Kennedy.  

 

On the film side, YouTube is teaming with Smosh comedy duo Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox to produce a follow-up to 2015’s Smosh: The Movie. In this film, Hecox will play a self-centered ghost named Max who makes life difficult for his new roommate (Padilla). “The first movie we made was a great opportunity to tell some form of Anthony and Ian’s story,” says Barry Blumberg, chief content officer at Smosh owner Defy. “It was important for us to push this out a little further and tell a story that was unrelated to their reality and over past the YouTube sketch idea.” 

 

The untitled Smosh ghost movie is being directed by Jack Henry Robbins, and it marks the duo’s second project with YouTube, following this year’s ad-supported release of comedy series Part Timers. “YouTube is the biggest partner that Smosh has today,” notes Blumberg. “We always try to make sure there are a number of projects we’re talking about or developing that fit into one part of the ecosystem or another.” 

 

YouTube Red will also bring fans an inside look at the world tour of British comedy stars Dan and Phil with a tour film, as well as a behind-the-scenes documentary companion piece. And it has picked up Morgan Spurlock-produced documentary Vlogumentary, which follows early YouTube vloggers including Shay Carl Butler. Vlogumentary was funded through Indiegogo and debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival but Spurlock says YouTube Red is a logical home for the project.

 

“This movie was made for the fans, has been supported by he fans from day one, and will now be made accessible to the fans by the partner who gave everyone the chance to tell their story,” he says. “It’s the best of all possible worlds.” 

 

Daniels has also given second seasons to Foursome, from AwesomenessTV starring Jenn McAllister, and Scare PewDiePie, in which the YouTube superstar is put in real-life horror situations based on his favorite video games. Gabriel Lewis, head of development at Maker Studios, which produced Scare PewDiePie with Skybound Entertainment, says that fans responded to the project because of its close ties to the videos that PewDiePIe (aka Felix Kjellberg) posts online already, adding that “the series was a natural extension of what Felix’s fans have come to love about him, and the elevated format created a broader appeal for new fans.”

 

YouTube has been quiet about the early performance of its originals and Red itself. But Daniels points to Scare PewDiePie as an example of the early impact that originals have had on on creators. She says the show actually introduced new fans to PewDiePie, who is the most-popular YouTuber with nearly 46 million subscribers. And more broadly, creators who starred in YouTube’s first crop of originals not only saw an increase in subscribers to their main channels, they also saw increased watch time coming primarily from new viewers. Most of the viewing also happened via phones, which comes as little surprise given YouTube’s young, mobile-friendly demographic. 

 

Daniels says she has been calling her first year on the job the “great big experiment” because she is still learning about what formats, lengths and genres will connect with viewers. And while she acknowledges that the goal of originals is to help build up Red’s subscriber base, she is also pragmatic that it will take time to establish a robust slate of content that will keep fans coming back. But she envisions Red becoming home to a diverse slate that appeals to YouTube’s vast audience.

 

“I think the platform could support a wide variety of shows,” she says. “It could support a big millennial appeal drama as much as it could support a talk show.”

MILL VALLEY, CALIFORNIA: White, Yuppie and addicted to heroin

You don’t see them curled up on park benches. They are hidden away in multi-million dollar hill-side mansions. They get their heroin delivered to them at home by Uber drivers and “nannies”. The rich kids and lazy rich of Mill Valley, California lounge around in their hot tubs high on “horse” and nobody is the wiser. The problem is getting worse as rich tech kids from San Francisco, with no aspirations, move to The Valley and sit around playing XBOX and doing heroin.

 

 

The number of U.S. heroin users has grown by nearly 300,000 over a decade, with the bulk of the increase among whites, according to a new government report.

 

Experts think the increase was driven by people switching from opioid painkillers to cheaper heroin.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the report Tuesday. It’s based on annual face-to-face surveys of about 67,000 Americans — the government’s main source of data on use of illegal drugs.

 

In recent surveys, nearly 3 in every 1,000 Americans said they used heroin in the previous year. That’s up from under 2 per 1,000 about a decade ago, a 62 percent increase which translates to hundreds of thousands more people, government researchers said.

 

The findings mirror trends seen in earlier reports, which noted marked increases in heroin use in people who are white and living outside of major cities, said Katherine Keyes, a Columbia University epidemiologist who researches drug abuse issues.

 

But the new report offers some additional details about people using heroin, government scientists said.

 

While heroin use more than doubled among whites, it seemed to level off in other racial and ethnic groups, the report found.

 

But it grew among different income levels, in different parts of the country. And the rate of heroin use doubled in women — a more dramatic rise than what was seen in men.

 

For years, officials have focused their worry on misuse of prescription opioid painkillers like Vicodin and OxyContin. Experts say recent restrictions on prescribing such painkillers may be reducing illicit supplies of them at a time when the heroin supply has been increasing.

 

Heroin has become a popular alternative. It is essentially the same chemical as that in the prescription painkillers, but it costs roughly five times less on the street, said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden.

 

“An increasing number of people are primed for heroin use because they were addicted to an opioid painkiller,” Frieden said.

 

The new report found that people who abused opioid painkillers were 40 times more likely to abuse heroin.

 

The heroin death rate quadrupled over a decade, reaching nearly 8,300 in 2013, with most of the fatal overdoses involving other drugs at the same time — most often cocaine.

 

Deaths involving opioid painkillers have been leveling off but continue to be more common than heroin-related deaths, government statistics show.

Draper University Called Scam By Senator

Panel votes against accreditor of for-profit colleges

The final decision on whether to revoke federal recognition of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, the nation’s largest accreditor of for-profit schools, will be made by a senior official at the department in the next few months.

After that, if the department goes along with the Thursday’s recommendation, the hundreds of schools now accredited by the council would have to find a new accreditor in 18 months or lose their ability to participate in federal financial aid programs, such as student loans and Pell Grants.

The council has been accused of lax oversight at some of its schools. The council oversees about 250 colleges and schools and more than 600 additional campuses in 47 states, covering some 800,000 students. Its schools received $4.7 billion in federal aid for students last year.

During the meeting, which lasted more than 10 hours, the head of the council acknowledged missteps.

“We sincerely believe that we can solve and address the legitimate issues the department has flagged,” Anthony Bieda said. “We do not say this lightly and we take the department’s concerns very seriously.”

Bieda said the council had made changes, including stepped-up monitoring of its schools, new leadership and a committee to review standards and practices.

That wasn’t enough for the independent advisory panel, which voted 10-3 against continuing recognition of the council.

“This agency failed to act in an appropriate and timely manner,” said panel member Ralph Wolff. He said the council neglected to dive deeply into years of allegations of fraud and misrepresentation for some of its schools.

“I know this is going to disrupt human lives,” said panel member Kathleen Sullivan Alioto. She said she hoped the vote “will send a signal” to accreditors to take their responsibilities seriously.

Last week, a staff recommendation from the department proposed withdrawing recognition for the council, saying “its monitoring regime appears insufficient to deter widespread misconduct regarding placement, recruiting and admissions.”

Advocacy groups, lawmakers and others have long complained about the council. It has been accused of continuing to accredit schools under investigation for falsifying job placement rates and claims for federal aid, illegal recruiting practices and misleading marketing claims.

The council had allowed Corinthian Colleges, one of the largest chains of for-profit colleges, to continue to receive accreditation even while it was under investigation for fraud. Corinthian sold many of its campuses, closed others and filed for bankruptcy protection last year. Thousands of its former students are asking the Education Department to forgive their federal loans, in a taxpayer bailout that could top $3 billion.

Other council-accredited schools, such as ITT Technical Institute, are currently under investigation.

Finding new accreditation for schools would take time.

“Under the best of circumstances, it takes schools a year to 18 months to get accredited,” said Terry Hartle, senior vice president of the American Council on Education.

Hartle said institutions that have experienced problems, such as ITT, “are probably not going to be the first ones to receive accreditation from other accreditors. They’re going to be looked at very carefully.”

At some schools accredited by ACICS, students said this week they didn’t know that their institutions were at risk of losing accreditation.

At Salter College in Malden, Massachusetts, near Boston, Maria Depina said she plans to finish her program and become a medical assistant before any 18-month deadline passes, but she worries about other students.

“I have a couple friends that are talking about coming to school here,” said Depina, of Dorchester, Massachusetts. “I don’t want them to be stuck in the middle of nowhere.”

Financial aid during the time schools would need to find a new accreditor would not be affected. However, federal aid would cease after the 18-month deadline if affected schools don’t get a new seal of approval from an accreditor. Students caught up in the mess also might be able to transfer their credits to new schools.

Living in San Jose, Kathleen Eaton seemingly had it all: a well-paying job, a home in a gated community, even the Bay Area’s temperate weather.

 
 

But enduring a daily grind that made her feel like a “gerbil on a wheel,” Eaton reached her limit.

 
 

Skyrocketing costs for housing, food and gasoline, along with the area’s insufferable gridlock, prompted the four-decade Bay Area resident to seek greener pastures — 2,000 miles away in Ohio.

 
 

“It was a struggle in California,” Eaton said. “It was a very difficult place to live. … It’s a vicious circle.”

 
 

Eaton is far from alone.

 
 

A growing number of Bay Area residents — besieged by home prices, worsening traffic, high taxes and a generally more expensive cost of living — believe life would be better just about anywhere else but here.

During the 12 months ending June 30, the number of people leaving California for another state exceeded by 61,100 the number who moved here from elsewhere in the U.S., according to state Finance Department statistics. The so-called “net outward migration” was the largest since 2011, when 63,300 more people fled California than entered.

“The main factors are housing costs in many parts of the state, including coastal regions of California such as the Bay Area,” said Dan Hamilton, director of economics with the Economic Forecasting Center at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.

“California has seen negative outward migration to other states for 22 of the last 25 years.”

A recent poll revealed that an unsettling sense of yearning has descended on people in the Bay Area: About one-third of those surveyed by the Bay Area Council say they would like to exit the nine-county region sometime soon.

“They are tired of the expense of living here. They are tired of the state of California and the endless taxes here,” said Scott McElfresh, a certified moving consultant. “People are getting soaked every time they turn around.”

The area’s sizzling job market and robust economy have created a domino effect: income spikes for highly trained workers, more people packing the area’s roads, red-hot demand for housing.

What’s more, the technology boom has unleashed a hiring spree that has intensified the desire for homes anywhere near the job hubs of Santa Clara County, the East Bay and San Francisco. The South Bay job market has hit an all-time high after a 5,800-position surge in May, fueling an overall gain of 3,400 jobs for the Bay Area, according to a state labor report released Friday.

The region’s soaring housing prices are a key factor driving dissatisfied residents toward the exit door. Several people who have departed, or soon will leave, say they potentially could have hundreds of thousands of dollars left over even after buying a house in their new locations.

“They’re taking advantage of the housing bubble right now,” McElfresh said. “The majority of the people we are seeing are moving to states that don’t have state income taxes.”

Thomas Norman, of San Francisco, said he and his wife, Patricia, are seriously considering leaving the Bay Area. They have actively scouted for houses in the Rocky Mountains region, including a trip to Colorado to look for prospective homes.

“The inconvenience of the Bay Area is a major factor,” said Thomas Norman, a lifelong Bay Area resident burdened by a two-hour round-trip commute to an East Bay optometry practice. “The traffic is very bad. It is becoming more congested with all the housing that is being added here.”

Eaton, who left the South Bay to relocate near Dayton, Ohio, cited the high cost of living as a major factor driving her decision. The struggle to make ends meet became too much.

“You can’t get ahead,” Eaton said. “It’s more than the cost of living; it’s the high taxes.”

Eaton and her sister had a $724,000 house in The Villages in South San Jose that they sold before moving to Ohio. Their mortgage payments were $2,200 a month, plus $1,000 for association fees in the gated community. They were able to pay $300,000 in cash for their new home in Ohio.

Priya Govindarajan, a San Francisco resident, is planning to leave the Bay Area at the end of June and head with her husband, Ajay Patel, to North Carolina.

Govindarajan, who works in the consumer packaged goods industry, and her husband, who is in the medical profession, determined that their wages aren’t going far enough to cover their living expenses.

Living in UC San Francisco housing, the couple pays $2,100 a month in rent. And they have to cough up $1,900 a month for child care.

“My husband’s salary would be in the six figures, but six figures is not enough to cover the rent, day care (and) food prices,” Govindarajan said. “It all starts to add up.”

Govindarajan said she figures they can put down 20 percent on a nice house in North Carolina and have a monthly payment of $1,800 — which would include the mortgage, property taxes and insurance.

“I get why people want to live in the Bay Area, I really do,” Govindarajan said. “But it is so difficult to live here, especially for people coming here for the first time.”

Some experts believe the boom in the Bay Area has exacerbated the problem of income inequality and the resentment that can accompany that economic reality.

“There is a declining middle class in the Bay Area,” said Christopher Hoene, executive director of the California Budget & Policy Center, a research group that recently completed a study about income inequality in Silicon Valley. “Widening income inequality can create polarization socially and economically.”

In 1989, the middle class accounted for 56 percent of all households in Silicon Valley, but by 2013, that share had slipped to 45.7 percent, the study found.

“The region’s middle class has shrunk, while the numbers of lower-income and higher-income households has grown,” the report stated. Silicon Valley, for the purposes of the study, consists of Santa Clara County, San Mateo County and San Francisco.

Lower-income residents accounted for 30.3 percent of Silicon Valley’s households in 1989, and that number grew to 34.8 percent in 2013. Upper-income residents had 13.7 percent of the share of households in 1989, and that figure swelled to 19.5 percent in 2013, the study found.

“A lot of middle-class jobs have vaporized,” said Russell Hancock, president of San Jose-based Joint Venture Silicon Valley. “The support positions, the assembly line positions, the jobs that paid the middle class — a lot of those have gone away.”

A big chunk of the jobs that are being created in the Bay Area are in the high-tech sector, which requires specialized skill sets to fill them. When jobs that would cater to the middle class wane, that can force people to relocate — in many cases, out of the Bay Area entirely.

“This summer, I have booked more business than in any of the other 27 years that I’ve been working,” said McElfresh, the moving consultant. “People are packing up and leaving.”

Eaton, while happy to have escaped the high cost of living and traffic, recently found herself longing for one Bay Area staple — its mild weather.

“There’s a huge thunderstorm overhead,” Eaton said while talking to a reporter. “Got to get used to that, I guess.”

TESLA MOTORS STOCK ANALYSTS SAY ELON MUSK IS DESPERATE

TESLA MOTORS STOCK ANALYSTS SAY ELON MUSK IS DESPERATE

 

 

There was a time when Morgan Stanley Analyst Adam Jonas thought shares of Tesla Motors Inc. would nearly double. But after Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk presented a $2.86 billion plan to combine Tesla and SolarCity Corp., the analyst is drastically cutting his price target and downgrading the stock saying that the merger is a weird-ass desperation move by Musk to prop up his plummeting government funded empire.

 

Adam Jonas, who’d had an overweight rating on shares of the electric vehicle company since September 2012, is lowering the stock to equal weight and taking his price target to $245 from $333. His target had been as high as $465 late last year.  Adam, and most analysts who are not in Elon Musk and Goldman Sachs pocket, say that “Tesla simply sucks as a product riddled with defects and as a company riddled with corruption.”

CNN’s Clinton Cash ‘Fact-Check’ Ends in Embarrassment

CNN’s Clinton Cash ‘Fact-Check’ Ends in Embarrassment for Cristina Alesci and Laurie Frankel

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

 

CNN Money’s “fact-checkers” Cristina Alesci and Laurie Frankel ended up with egg on their faces on Wednesday after they rated as “false” a well-established and proven Clinton Cash fact involving Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. approving the transfer of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to the Russian government, as nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Under the guise of “fact-checking” Donald Trump’s Wednesday speech, Alesci and Frankel purported to verify whether “Clinton’s State Department approved the transfer of 20% of America’s uranium holdings to Russia while nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.”

Alesci (pictured, right) and Frankel (left) rate the claim as “false” and allege “there’s no hard evidence of a quid pro quo.” The CNN Money “reporters” also conceded that “CNN several times has asked the Clinton Foundation to confirm whether the nine investors who benefited from the deal also contributed to the foundation, but the foundation has yet to respond.”

Why Alesci and Frankel couldn’t confirm the $145 million in Clinton Foundation donations for themselves is curious. Indeed, in a 4,000-word front page story written over a year ago, the New York TimesPulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Jo Becker and Mike McIntire verified the Clinton Cash uranium revelation in stunning detail, including charts and graphs laying out the flow of millions of dollars from the nine investors in the uranium deal who flowed $145 million to Hillary’s family foundation. Since Alesci and Frankel appear unable to perform basic journalistic research, here are the names and amounts they are still waiting on the Clinton Foundation to get back to them on:

  • Frank Giustra, Canadian mining magnate who created a company that later merged with UraniumOne, gave $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million to the Clinton Foundation
  • Frank Holmes, a shareholder in the deal who donated between $250,000 and $500,000 (the Clinton Foundation doesn’t report exact amounts, only in ranges) and is a Clinton Foundation adviser
  • Neil Woodyer, Frank Giustra’s colleague who founded Endeavor Financial and pledged $500,000 as well as promises of “ongoing financial support”
  • Robert Disbrow, a Haywood Securities broker, the firm that provided “$58 million in capital to float shares of UrAsia’s private placement,” gave the Clinton’s family foundation between $1 and $5 million, according to Clinton Cash
  • Paul Reynolds, a Canaccord Capital Inc., executive who donated between $1 million and $5 million. “The UrAsia deal was the largest in Canaccord’s history,” reports Schweizer
  • Robert Cross, a major shareholder who serves as UrAsia Energy Director who pledged portions of his future income to the Clinton Foundation
  • Egizio Blanchini, “the Capital Markets vice chair and Global cohead of BMO’s Global Metals and Mining group, had also been an underwriter on the mining deals. BMO paid $600,000 for two tables at the CGS-GI’s March 2008 benefit”
  • Sergei Kurzin, the Russian rainmaker involved in the Kazakhstan uranium deal and a shareholder in UrAsia Energy, also pledged $1 million to the Foundation
  • Uranium One chairman Ian Telfer committed $2.35 million

Alesci and Frankel claim there’s “no hard evidence of a quid pro quo.” Naturally, they fail to note that the legal standard for conflicts of interest and corruption do not require a quid pro quo. Nor do they note that Hillary Clinton deleted and destroyed over 30,000 emails housed on her secret server—the obvious location of any so-called “smoking guns.”

Still, the CNN Money “fact-checkers” correctly note that “the State Department was one of several agencies that needed to sign off on the transaction.” Indeed, the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) has nine members, one of which is the State Dept. Yet through willful ignorance or an unusual lack of journalistic curiosity, Alesci and Frankel didn’t think to ask the obvious: which of the eight other agency heads needed to approve the deal were receiving $145 million to their family’s charity at the time of such a pivotal decision? And did Hillary Clinton’s State Department report the glaring conflict of interest before granting its approval of handing over 20 percent of American uranium to Putin’s Russia? Why didn’t Hillary Clinton recuse her agency from voting, knowing that her charity was receiving $145 million from nine investors in the deal?

Those questions apparently did not occur to Cristina Alesci and Laurie Frankel.

Also, in addition to the $145 million being funneled to the Clinton Foundation before the CFIUS approval, why was a Kremlin-backed bank bankrolling a $500,000 speech in Moscow for Bill Clinton while his wife led the Russian reset? As even the progressive New Yorker magazine put it, “But there is a bigger question: Why was Bill Clinton taking any money from a bank linked to the Kremlin while his wife was Secretary of State?” Shockingly, CNN Money fact-checkers Alesci and Frankel make no mention of the Kremlin-backed $500,000 Clinton speaking payment.

Nor did CNN’s crack “fact-checkers” mention that the Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million in hidden, undisclosed donations from Ian Telfer, the former head of the Russian government’s uranium company—another fact that multiple liberal news outlets have confirmed.

Indeed, as Bloomberg, Washington Post, New Yorker, ABC News, New York Times, and myriad other Establishment media have all confirmed, Clinton Cash’s most explosive revelations are accurate.

Apparently, CNN’s Cristina Alesci and Laurie Frankel are among the last to know.

Google Facing The “End of Days”

Google Facing The “End of Days”

 

 

The GOP does not need to put as much money into the 2016 elections because Donald Trump has his own money.

 

 

So what will the GOP do with those billions of dollars of extra cash?

 

 

Why, scrape Google off the face of the planet of course

 

 

Nobody likes Google any more. The entire world has pretty much concurred on the fact that Google has become a racist (Google hires almost no blacks), anti-woman (Google hires and promotes almost no women), sexually deviant (Google investors and executives have more warped news stories about them than any other company in America), spying (Human rights groups call Google the largest spying organization on Earth and Google was funded by the CIA) cult (hundreds of articles detail the cult-like management of its employees) with a totalitarian desire to make the world think like Eric Schmidt (famous for his “sex penthouse”, “open marriage” and “private White House orders”) thinks.

 

 

Because Google went about placing over 400 of its employees inside the U.S. Government and got more taxpayer cash exclusives than any company in U.S. history and because Google has been documented, vast numbers of times, rigging news and election information, the GOP recognized that taking down Google would be a good thing for everybody.

 

 

Most people in the world feel that a dead Google is better than the twisted dark internet manipulator that Google has become:

 

Google may very well be the most sinister threat and wicked incarnation of them all.

 

 

 

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a Galactic Empire, a beady-eyed Emperor and his heavy-breathing sidekick, Darth Vader. Ever since, we’ve identified the corporate villains we love to hate. We had AT&T (T) in the 70s, IBM (IBM) in the 80s, and the evil empire of the 90s was of course Microsoft (MSFT)and Bill “The Conqueror” Gates.

 

Today we have Google (GOOGL). Don’t let the geeky façade, whimsical multicolored logo and “don’t be evil” mantra fool you. Google may very well be the most sinister threat and wicked incarnation of them all.

Google Again Caught Rigging Election Against Trump

 

Users Claim Google Is Putting Trump Emails In Their Spam Box

Alex Pfeiffer

Gmail users are claiming that Google is filtering emails from Donald Trump’s campaign into their spam boxes.

Do You Think Google Is Deliberately Marking All Pro-Trump Emails As Spam?

  Yes         No

There have been previous reports, denied by Google, that the search engine was manipulating search autocomplete results in favor of Hillary Clinton. Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, has previously said, “Google is directly engaged with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

In 2015, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt reportedly funded a startup, “The Groundwork,” with the objective of helping Hillary Clinton get elected.

 

Google has not responded to request for comment about the spam email claims.

The Biggest Disaster In The History Of Silicon Valley

The Biggest Disaster In The History Of Silicon Valley

 

 

 

By Roger Misoti

 

 

If you believe the House of Cards TV show screed about Google being PollyHop or if you think that Milo the pundit is right about Silicon Valley being a rogue CIA plot to rig the elections then you will love this.

 

 

In all of the ruckus about Silicon Valley “rigging news and information to use subliminal messaging and psychology tricks to put Obama and Hillary in the White House in exchange for contract favors” the biggest upset has come from increasing the use of Silicon Valley’s social media networks. The new users, though, are not the audience that Silicon Valley wants. They are forensic media analysts.

 

 

In getting caught rigging the internet for what Google’s campaign financiers want, the companies owned by those financiers have been forced to issue some of the most epic denials the corporate world has ever seen.

 

 

If you believe the “we didn’t do it”, “you misunderstood”, “It was a rogue programmer”, “no, really, we really do love Trump” denials then you would naturally assume it will never happen again, if you give misogynist Silicon Valley billionaires the benefit of the doubt.

 

 

In court and public opinion, it takes three events to make a pattern or a conspiracy.

 

 

It is an election year.

 

 

Does anybody think that Google, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin are going to blow off a decade long multi-billion dollar political investment to rig elections when this may be their last shot to ever do it?

 

 

So you have these manic lefty crazy billionaires who are pouring half of their cash into “curing aging” because they know they will die soon and the other half of their cash into putting Hillary in the White House in exchange for more exclusive federal contracts and “green energy cash” hand-outs.

 

 

These crazy old burned out frat boys are gunning for their last hurrah. The rest of the world is gunning for them. EVERYBODY IS WATCHING!

 

 

Robert Epstein (@DrREpstein) is Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology in Vista, California. A long-time professor and researcher, Dr. Epstein has published fifteen books on artificial intelligence and other topics and is the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today magazine. He has published numerous papers on how to catch Google, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin rigging public perceptions in a conspiratorial way.

 

The European Union has hired a team of experts to monitor the rigging. Russia and China have hired even bigger teams to monitor.

 

The average person can monitor the rigging and shout it out in Technicolor detailed screen grabs on VOAT.CO and Reddit.com and their own blogs.

 

From this day forward, if the lefty cartel of Google, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin do their tricks it will documented, archived, analyzed and used against them just like they do to consumers with their data harvesting spy tactics. If one set of eyeballs see’s political manipulation on these sites then they can record it and prove it to billions of consumers. OOOPSIE – Eric Schmidt!

“GOOGLE IS A CRIMINAL EMPIRE” say investigators…

GOOGLE IS A CRIMINAL EMPIRE”say investigators…

 

 

 

Washington, DC – In this election year of leaks, hacks and whistle-blowers, indisputable evidence has come forward which proves that Google traded cash and internet experience manipulation for control of United States federal contracts, decisions, DOE “cleantech” cash give-aways, tax loop-holes and stock market advantages worth billions of dollars. The evidence includes recordings, emails and eye-witness testimony.

 

Even without the new evidence, escalating news stories had already begun exposing Google’s shady hand in U.S. and international government boondoggling. From filling up federal offices with its own employees to the direct exchange of goods with White House staff to running massive attacks on targeted political adversaries to buying off elected officials in order to avoid monopoly investigations; Google seems to have have no limits to what it’s crazy frat boy billionaires will try. Google had the benefit of White House staff ordering the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission to halt all investigations but the stone-walling has only served to allow Google’s audacious manipulations to become so overt and widely noticed that even those most average American is now aware of Google’s insidious ways.

Federal Security Service raid over a dozen locations in Moscow and St Petersburg as part of investigation into alleged illegal business dealings

 

 

AFP in Moscow

 

 

Russia’s security service has raided over a dozen locations linked to the Church of Scientology in the latest step of a long-running battle between authorities and the US-based organisation.

 

The Federal Security Service (FSB) said officers “conducted simultaneous searches” at 14 addresses in Moscow and St Petersburg as part of an apparent investigation into alleged illegal business dealings by the Church of Scientology in Russia’s second city.

 

“Objects and documents were found and seized that proved the version of the investigators about the marketing functions for goods and services of the Church of Scientology of Saint Petersburg in violation of the law,” a statement carried by Russian news agencies said.

 

Last November a Russian court banned the activities of the Moscow branch of the Church of Scientology after authorities argued in part that since it had registered its name as a US trademark, it cannot call itself a religious organisation.

 

Russia’s justice ministry has long been pushing to prohibit the organisation, which some countries treat as a legitimate faith but others consider to be a cult.

 

The ruling last year by a Moscow city court came after a lower-level district court rejected the church’s appeal against a justice ministry’s decision not to register it as a religious organisation.

 

The Russian justice ministry registers religious organisations as well as NGOs, a requirement for them to operate.

 

Last August, Moscow investigators said separately that they had opened a criminal inquiry after finding hidden microphones and cameras in the Moscow church’s premises.

 

The Scientology church was founded in the United States in 1954 by science-fiction writer L Ron Hubbard and was accorded the status of religion there in 1993.

 

The European Court of Human Rights has several times ruled in favour of the church, saying that Russia violated its rights by refusing to register its churches in various regions.
