2017: New 5G Cell Towers and Smart Meters to Increase Microwave Radiation and Invade Privacy

By John P. Thomas When the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) approved the use of 5-G microwave communication technology in 2016 and approved the use of microwave frequencies in the 30 Ghz range, [1], they opened the door to even higher levels of human illness and severe disability for American children and adults. Microwave radiation such as that currently being used in cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, and smart meters has already been linked to numerous health effects. The introduction of even more intense levels of microwave exposure at higher frequencies will push many people into a life-threatening chronic illness. High-frequency microwave radiation is often overlooked as a causative factor in illness, because most conventional healthcare providers, government regulators, telecom companies, and electric utilities believe microwave radiation used in communication technology is harmless. [2] Despite the warnings being raised by scientists, well-informed healthcare providers, and grassroots organizations about existing and future […] Read More

2017: WikiLeaks’ ‘Dark Matter’ Dump Shows CIA’s iPhone, MacBook Hacks

CIA documents published by WikiLeaks Thursday reveal hacks used by the agency against Apple cellphones and computers. Dubbed “Dark Matter,” the documents, a new addition to WikiLeaks’ ongoing “Vault 7” dump, detail hacks leveraged against iPhones and MacBooks as far back as 2008. “These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware,” a WikiLeaks press release says. By targeting the firmware, CIA hackers can remain in control of an infected device even if the target wipes the data and re-installs the operating system. One such tool, known as “Sonic Screwdriver,” is, according to the CIA, a “mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting…” By providing a target with a compromised peripheral device such as an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter, which stores “Sonic Screwdriver” […] Read More

Hello Biometrics: Windows 10 To Add Facial Recognition, Iris Scans And Fingerprint Reader (VIDEO)

By: Nicholas | Tech Swarm – After several years of consumer complaints, Microsoft Windows 10 has been getting a lot of attention as of late for many upgrades slated for their new version of the popular operating system. However, it appears that one feature being added to supposedly consumer-friendly applications is a suite of biometrics called Windows Hello and Windows Passport. It’s all a part of the move toward a full-fledged Smart World where YOU become the password in a matrix of online and real-world activity. Naturally, the fear of identity theft and cyber crime of all stripes has been the sales pitch to accept this new pervasive identity tech. Apple’s Touch ID was introduced in iPhone 5 which employed a fingerprint scanner for phone locking as well as to make purchases in Apple stores. Yet, it didn’t take long for this new ultra-security measure to be hacked. As Melissa […] Read More

2014: 5 Reasons To Question Apple’s Data Security

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, I’m the furthest thing in the world from a technology or security expert, but what I have learned in recent years is that a dedicated, sophisticated and well funded hacker can pretty much own your data no matter how many precautions you take. Nevertheless, the major technology companies on the planet shouldn’t go out of their way to make this as easy as possible. In the wake of the theft of private images from several prominent celebrities, many people are rightly wondering whether how vulnerable their data is. The answer appears to be “very,” and if you use Apple, the following article from Slate may leave you seething with a sense of anger and betrayal. David Auerbach wrote the following for Slate. Read it and weep: >In the wake of the theft of the private data and photos of dozens of celebrities, there […] Read More

2014: Your IPhone, Android & Tablet Are Impacting Your Sleep. Not In A Good Way

The body has an internal clock called a circadian rhythm, helping you to go to sleep in the evening and to wake up in the morning. Your sleep health and overall well-being is dependent on your circadian rhythm working correctly and remaining synchronized with night and day. The most important external indicator to help keep your body synchronized with this routine is light. When the eye senses light, it sends a signal to your brain to be awake. When it becomes dark in the evening, your body produces melatonin, often called the sleepy hormone signaling your body to sleep at night. The combination of biological processes in response to light and darkness are crucial factors for your body to remain synchronized and able to sleep at the right time. Artificial light is one of the biggest causes of sleep deprivation in modern humans, and, stay with me here, it’s […] Read More
