Dubai Police To Use Google Glass For Facial Recognition

Just wait till police officer's, bankers, politician's faces are recognized by this technology as THE CRIMINALS.

Oh, and imagine the ramifications for false positives!

This won't be handled under civil lawsuits.

The ramifications of this go very deep.

Fukushima Daiichi Water Leak Raised To Level 3 Severity

j0ebaker Re:Possible Solution (92 comments)

I think it's worth trying the hydrogen flame.
I'm not suggesting boiling drinking water... although using the hydrogen flame might help if this technique is proven out.
Thanks for your comments though. I really do appreciate them.

Fukushima Daiichi Water Leak Raised To Level 3 Severity

j0ebaker Re:Possible Solution (92 comments)

A problem with this solution is that some claim there is a 250 billion dollar industry in nuclear waste containment, plus governments like to use the nuclear waste for weapons. So there are financial interests at stake. On the other hand the world would have a nice reduction in the cost of living if they could just get an under water robot with a hydrogen flame down to treat those nuclear waste rods.

j0ebaker Possible Solution (92 comments)

Has anyone else seen the info where it's claimed that nuclear waste rods are dispelled of their radiation rapidly when exposed to a hydron/oxygen flame (Also called Brown's Gas by welders).

I ran across this information some years ago when I was experimenting with adding hydrogen to my car's engine.

So here's a web site where they make te case for the technique:

EFF Sues to Block New Internet Sex-Offender Law

j0ebaker The Odd Case of Bakersfield, California (305 comments)

In Bakersfield California you had a town so conditioned to fear crime out of near by Los Angeles, that the desire for a "Tough on Crime" DA got them Ed Jagles. Ed Jagles and his buddies have been alleged to have falsely accused and falsely convicted many of sexual assault on children. So consider that some who are whistle blowers in a community might be branded sexual predictors just as a way to make their lives difficult.

Thankfully Ed Jagles chose not to run for office again after all the heat about an illegal warrentless break in to a house in the community which was caught on tape and had gone viral on the Internet.

Starting Next Year, Brazil Wants To Track All Cars Electronically

j0ebaker They cannot lawfully do this. (178 comments)

All one has to do is to make the case that their life would be endangered by being a whistle blower to government corruption if the government knew where their vehicle was at all times. Or explain cases where there is spousal abuse where the aggressor bribes a government worker, or pays a hacker to hack in and disclose the whereabouts of the spouse.

Besides one had a right to travel anonymously and rights cannot be converted into privileges nor can they be taken away.

Brazil was pretty cool with their uptake of Open Source Software. But this sounds pretty damn lame to me in terms of civil liberties.

Governments around the world are loosing their ability to totally control the reality experience of the common individual. Thank you very much for for trying to entertain us, but we have lives to live here on this planet and beyond - leave us be.

Governments are illusions for the delusional.

Study Finds Unvaccinated Students Putting Other Students At Risk

j0ebaker Illogicial (1025 comments)

Disconnect from the emotion of this issue and try to think logically and I will too.

If vaccines allegedly protect children from viruses by infecting them,
And a child A has been vaccinated,
how can child B who has not been vaccinated be a threat to a protected child?

And is not Child A a threat to child B because Child A is carrying a live virus?

Do they not report that sometimes innoculations will actually cause the very outcome which they are designed to protect against?

Do you really have a good basis to trust your government?

How do you know that what they are putting inside you isn't intended to make you more controllable?

I would defend myself against innoculations as strongly as if someone were coming at me with a knife.
That's just how I think of it.

We've been conditioned to be very emotional about this issue. I hope we can someday lay aside the emotion and rationally discuss this.

Google Street View Logs Wi-Fi Networks, MAC Addresses

j0ebaker Re:Change your Wifi Mac Address via drivers? (559 comments)

Your mac address identifies your hardware. When you take it places, and if there is an effort to geo position the data of where all the mac addresses are / have been, it tracks movements of laptops and wireless devices. Mac addresses are typically only thought to be important for the local subnet. Outside of the gateway, the return mac addresses gets replaced at pretty much every hop along the way.

Google Street View Logs Wi-Fi Networks, MAC Addresses

j0ebaker Re:Change your Wifi Mac Address via drivers? (559 comments)

You don't seem to understand the exposure. Every device that has a mac address, whether it is using encryption or not, is potentially cataloged. Now a person on the run from government gone wild, has to be concerned about their mac addresses on their wifi device. Consider the CALEA legislation and how internet cafes are supposed to allow the feds to spy on internet traffic. OOPS! Now they know where you are. This hits home to me, because apparently I've unleashed a bees nest of activity in Bakersfield California. All I have to say is that the Sheriffs and County supervisors should get District Attorney Ed Jagles out of office before he costs them any more money. I'm seeking 555 million dollars in dammages for their attempt to take my life, torturing me, denying me due process of law and denying me access to water despite asking for it 35 times in a hospital!

So yes! We do need a way to come up with a different MAC address on the wireless cards - and that's just for starters.... We need to be able to identify whether RFID chips are in the laptops, shoes, drivers licenses, credit cards, etc... They act like a beacon on an airplane sending back a unique serial number. Consider Casper Weinberger's Department of Defense plans for "Total Information Awareness" TIA. They are data mining us so that resistance to their dominion will be perceived as hopeless. Well I'm here to tell you all it isn't hopeless. More about my difficult encounter with the Bakersfield Police http://nahls.net/joe.html

Google Street View Logs Wi-Fi Networks, MAC Addresses

j0ebaker Change your Wifi Mac Address via drivers? (559 comments)

We need programmers to write code into the drivers to optionally enable the randomization of MAC addresses on wifi cards. This needs to be setup also on the Access Points. maybe setting it up so they change once a day?

Imagine a city like Bakersfield, California where the Sheriff's department flys over neighborhoods with helecopters at maybe 250 feet pointing search lights at the homes. Might they be collecting MAC addresses? might they be sending RFID pulses to identify all the junk in your house?

Considering that department stores like Kohls have experimented with putting RFID chips in clothing, we need to start finding ways to identify where these chips are in our belongings and blast them with microwaves to "blow them out".

Bakersfield, California is home to a ton of corruption in the courts, sheriff's department, District Attorney's office.

I am involved with affidavits against high ranking officers there and sheriff's deputies have made threats against my life.

Citibank Denies Reported Breach Linked To Russian Gang

j0ebaker Story smells of Occult practices (53 comments)

I find it interesting that the attribute 5 things to this "Russian"
business network.

5 is an occult power number for encumbering the help of Gnosticism's 5
dark evil demi-urges that are accredited with creating this world.

The bankers are masters of deception and occult hand waving. Who else
could conjure up money out of thin air for you to buy your house with
and then enslave you to pay the sum back times 3? May the bankers be
fully exposed and bear the shame and may they seek our forgiveness on
their knees. May we never, ever be deceived financially by the
Knights of Malta, the Masons, The Catholic Church or any other secret
society / religion which seeks to control our minds with occult
practices to enslave us.

Ah, that felt good to get off my chest.

UN Officials Remove Poster Mentioning Chinese Firewall

j0ebaker UN's Last Straw (409 comments)

I Void the UN - Government Imposters - New Internet Design Requirements - Quantum Internet Links?
Hash: SHA1

The US Constitution Requires all treaties to comply with it's
provisions and the UN Treaties are clearly outside of the limits the
US Constitution imposes on Governance - so I declare the UN to now be
not binding on the United States of America or the United States or
the Several States -- err there are actually many names we've had over
here as the US has morphed many times in it's corporate status.

I'm just sick of corporations like "The United States of America"
impostering as a legitimate government.

The Internet needs a new design requirement.... No Controls, No
Central Controls, No Identity Requirements.

Oh, and whiles we are at it... What about using quantum physics to
Internet Links? Imagine your blackberry being quantumly linked to
your office network and making calls via a sip client and TOTALLY

Sequoia To Publish Source Code For Voting Machines

The Articles of Confederation required Unanimous consent for changes

Constitution - they did it in secret and nobody signed the document as
a signature, only as witnesses. This is a problem. People have
gotten away from unanimous consent and I think we really need to get
back to the idea that one lone dissenter can and should be able to
stand his ground. I tend to be that one person quite allot these

What Desktop Search Engine For a Shared Volume?

j0ebaker http://beagle-project.org Linux Search Tool (232 comments)

Hash: SHA1

The Beagle tool on Linux can be used. It also has a web based
interface for running queries over the network. From looking at the
configuration screens, it appears to be able to cascade to other
systems to send queries to beagle services there also.

Dogs have a great sense of smell for finding things, so put a Beagle
to work databasing your files for instant access in the future.

I've used beagle for a long time, and I even added the Beagle plugin
for firefox so I can find content on web pages I've visited.

Thanks to an open source tool such as Beagle, I don't have to trust
proprietary code that has the potential of giving away my secrets
through hidden back doors.

William F. Buckley Dies At 82

j0ebaker j0ebaker writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Joseph William Baker of Burlington Wisconsin writes "Early leader of conservative thought William F. Buckley, Jr. on February 27th, 2008. His magazine National Review has several stories in response to his passing. He was credited with laying the intellectual groundwork underpinning Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan's economic libertarianism, traditional American conservatism and anti-communism. I was one year old in 1966 when his television show "Firing Line" started. His wit, candor and intellectual honesty to transform his position to one of favoring the legalizing of drugs will be sorely missed. I will always remember his signature eye brawl raising while he'd talk and his propensity for using power packed words. We need a new voice that unequivocally can make the case to obliterate socialism from all levels of government. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_F._Buckley%2C_Jr.#_note-1 http://www.postchronicle.com/news/original/article_212133015.shtml http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/019742.html http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080302/OPINION/803020335/1301/OPINION http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/dn/opinion/columnists/rdreher/stories/030208dnedinudreher.15bbfae9.html http://www.courant.com/news/opinion/commentary/hc-curry0302.artmar02,0,2075605.column"

Well, I've finally landed a wonderful job doing Linux and Windows client administration here in Burlington, WI. NEL Frequency Controls, Inc. makes crystal oscillators that stand up to very tight tollerances. I'm using Samba for file and printer sharing and soon as a domain controller. Soon I'll have some LTSP style clients deployed as well :)

I've been studying how to use Wine to run Microsoft applications on Linux.

I've given up trying to sell air cleaners, although I really love mine :)

I'm running for an officer position in the Milwaukee Linux Group this weekend. I'm one of 8 candidates for 5 positions. I'm also trying to arrange to have local Linux meetings out here in Burlington at my office's lunch room. We would have a video projector and broadband Internet :)

That's all for now...

I've been using this air purification system from Alpine Industries and marketed by ecoquestintl.com.
I've become a distributor in thier multi-level marketing system. So if anybody in SE Wisconsin wants to try one of these units out, let me know.

They have a unique Ionization method:
They use a Radio Frequency signal to ionize the air with positive and negative ions up to 60 feet from the unit. The idea behind ionizing for air purification is to make the particles cling to one another and hopefully they will drop out of the air. In practice, this seems to work well.

Using Ozone to combat odors:
I used the unit in a small bathroom where I was sanding shelves and painting them. The ozone worked well at eliminating the odors that would have otherwise overwhelmed our house.

Ionization in the Bedroom:
My wife usually has headaches in the morning and she has not had them since using this air purification system in the bedroom.
