  • A New Global Police to Fight “Violent Extremism” in the U.S.?

    Why exactly does Obama want the “Strong Cities Network”? The Obama administration plans to create a global police force that counters “violent extremism” in the United States and elsewhere. The problem is that in Obama-speak “violent extremism” refers not only to jihadists wishing to harm Americans but also to conservatives and Tea Party activists. Just ask all the law-abiding right-of-center nonprofit groups targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS during the Obama presidency. Ominously, President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch unveiled the Strong Cities Network last week at the United Nations. America’s chief executive, who speaks in hushed and reverent...

  • Bone scans overstage prostate cancer at initial staging compared with PSMA PET: Study (Bone scans falsely show metastasis)

    11/14/2023 8:27:50 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 3 replies
    Bone scans have been found to overstage prostate cancer at initial staging compared to prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET, according to new research. The significant false-positive rate of metastases on bone scans means that definitive therapy for local disease may have been withheld from patients inappropriately. PSMA PET is more accurate than CT and bone scans for staging patients with prostate cancer and, in recent years, has become the standard imaging modality at initial staging. Nearly all prostate cancer trials have used CT and bone scans for staging, however, and the best way to apply those data to patients staged...

    Well, to put it bluntly, this sucks. I was in our local Aldi store earlier today and they were in the midst of going to all digital pricing. That is, there's essentially a bar code on the shelf under each group of boxes of items, or under the 2% milk rack, etc., which you scan with a smart phone to get the price. No printed prices are on the shelves, and won't be, according to the employee I spoke with.
  • The public has never seen any scientific data that shows that our use of natural resources increases temperatures or controls the climate

    American Thinker ^ | 04/02/2023 | Jack Hellner
    The United States and other supposedly advanced and intelligent countries are working as fast as they can to destroy companies that produce oil, coal, natural gas and all the products derived from them. They are doing it because of the predictions that these products cause temperatures to rise and massive climate damage. What the media and other pushers of radical green energy policies never show is scientific data that show a direct link between our consumption of these products and warming temperatures. Because there is none. The U.S and other countries are trying to stop allowing us to buy reasonably...

    EurekAlert ^ | 06/02/2022 | OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
    Brain scans of people taken while they performed various tasks – and even did nothing – accurately predicted whether they were politically conservative or liberal, according to the largest study of its kind.Researchers found that the “signatures” in the brain revealed by the scans were as accurate at predicting political ideology as the strongest predictor generally used in political science research, which is the ideology of a person’s parents. . . . In fact, even when participants were asked to sit quietly and think of nothing in particular, the resulting scans showed a relationship to political ideology, said co-author James...

    WASHINGTON _ Millions of Americans will soon have to scan their faces to access their Internal Revenue Service tax accounts, one of the government's biggest expansions yet of facial recognition software into people's everyday lives.Taxpayers will still be able to file their returns the old-fashioned way. But by this summer, anyone wanting to access their records - including details about child tax credits, payment plans or tax transcripts - on the IRS website will be required to record a video of their face with their computer or smartphone and send it to the private contractor to confirm their identity.About...

    According to Walla, he announced that a genetic scanning mechanism is currently being developed for everyone who comes through the gates of Ben Gurion Airport. "I call it 'the Omega'. We are working on a mechanism of genetic scanning for everyone who enters Israel. In this way, Israel will become a radar for the virus. Bennett backed the Minister of Social Equality Meirav Cohen on her statement that "The next variant will come to Israel through Ben Gurion Airport" and said that the genetic mechanism will help deal with it.

    Amazon is one step closer to implementing its creepy, futuristic flesh-and-blood payment system. The e-tailing giant’s engineers on Thursday filed a patent application for a device that can scan a human hand — without ever touching it — as a way to ring up a store purchase. As The Post exclusively reported in September, the device is being developed by Amazon engineers under the code name “Orville” for a future rollout at the Amazon-owned Whole Foods supermarket chain. Employees at Amazon’s New York offices have been serving as guinea pigs for the biometric technology, using it at a handful of...

    Have you ever been the victim of a con? Let me tell you about my experience in France. My husband and I took the late-night Chunnel, the undersea train that goes from London to Paris. Tired after a day of sightseeing, we were anxious to get our money changed from British pounds to Euros and head to our hotel. There was no one else around the terminal when we arrived at the glass-enclosed exchange booth. As my husband handed the man on duty some money, the agent spoke softly but offered to give us a better deal if we exchanged...
  • Brother Died Yesterday, Get a Heart Scan

    No, this is not a boo-hoo thread. This is a thread to provide a little advice that may save your life. My brother died suddenly of a massive heart attack yesterday at age 65. He had no known heart issues and was under doctor's care at the time. He thought he had taken care of himself. He obviously hadn't. Two things that anyone should try to obtain: An EKG, and most importantly, a heart image scan. The heart scan is also known as a Calcium Heart Score and costs about $99. The heart scan takes about 5 minutes and produces...

    TUESDAY, March 31, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- Every face tells a story, and that story apparently includes hints of how quickly a person is aging, a new study contends. Facial features have proven even more reliable than blood tests in spotting those for whom time is taking a heavier toll, a Chinese research team reports in the March 31 issue of the journal Cell Research. A computerized 3-D facial imaging process uncovered a number of "tells" that show if a person is aging more rapidly, including a widening mouth, bulging nose, sagging upper lip, shrinking gums and drooping eye corners,...

    Here’s another follow-up to my article about Jim Hoft’s dishonest tactics in promoting his bogus claim that officer Darren Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in a purported struggle with teenager Michael Brown. As I pointed out in the earlier piece, Hoft posted a stock image of a CT scan of a fractured eye socket, but apparently erased the words “UNIV OF IOWA” from his copy of the image. Well, thanks to LGF readers @franklinftw and @loveheylola, I can now remove the word “apparently” from that description, because we have proof that Hoft (or someone who works with him) did...

    There are plenty of smartphone apps that make it easier to flirt and set up dates with strangers, but GM has an ace up its sleeve that may trump all of them. No, the car manufacturer isn’t muscling its way into the dating game – at least not directly. But its China R&D team has developed an Android app that lets a driver scan a license plate in order to start texting the owner of that car. The romantic implications of DiDi Plate, a prototype app debuted earlier this month at the Telematics Detroit 2014 conference, are obvious enough, even...

    The state Government Accountability Board plans to go to court next week to ask for more time to review the 1.9 million signatures turned in this week in the recall attempts against Gov. Scott Walker and other public officials. But Kevin Kennedy, director and general counsel of the state ethics and elections agency, said Thursday that he's not ready to say how much extra time the board will seek. The software the board bought to help check for duplicate signatures is being tested. "We think it works," Kennedy said. Kennedy, who spoke in a public interview Thursday at the Marquette...

    MADISON — A little advice for those who want to pop in and observe the recall petition review: Stay home and watch it on television. Only staff members and temporary employees of the Government Accountability Board, or GAB, which oversees state elections and campaigns, will be permitted in an at-present undisclosed location. And speaking of temp jobs, the board has had a hard time filling the petition review positions, mainly because too many prospective employment candidates have signed recall petitions targeting Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. GAB employees Thursday continued scanning some 1.9 million signatures, after having...

    One of the more interesting portions of Manhattan’s geography is Union Square Park, which serves as a farmer’s market, transit hub, and rallying point for political activists of varying political stripes. One of the groups that has used Union Square to showcase its views, both today and in the past, is the Communist Party. However, this past friday saw a protest sponsored by the New York Libertarian Party that was entitled Ban the Scan, and intended to speak out against what it perceives as misguided policies initiated by the Transportation Security Administration, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security...

    This Article explains that certain features of U.S. law, particularly copyright law, contributed to Google’s willingness to undertake the Google Book Search (GBS) project in the first place and later to its motivation to settle the lawsuit charging Google with copyright infringement for scanning in-copyright books. Approval of this settlement would achieve several copyright reforms that Congress might find difficult to accomplish, some of which would be in the public interest. This Article considers whether the quasi-legislative nature of the GBS settlement is merely an interesting side effect of the agreement or a reason in favor of or against approval...
