Internal Boeing Emails Claim 777X Shares MAX Problem

Internal emails from Boeing staff members working on the 737 MAX were made public earlier this month have revealed new safety problems for the company's flagship 777X, a long-range, wide-body, twin-engine passenger jet, currently in development that is expected to replace the aging 777-200LR and 777-300ER fleets, reported The Telegraph.

Already, damning emails released via a U.S. Senate probe describes problems during the MAX development and qualification process. The emails also highlight how Boeing employees were troubled by the 777X – could be vulnerable to technical issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whichever Boeing executives who signed off on this, should be investigated for promoting criminal negligence, tried by a jury of their peers, and serve some hard time, to demonstrate to the rest of the industry that this kind of behaviour is no longer tolerable, period, end of discussion.

The European Union May Ban Facial Recognition For 5-Year Review Of Tech

By Aaron Kesel

The European Union is considering banning facial recognition technology which has raised massive privacy concerns over the years since its inception, risking us walking into George Orwell’s nightmare 1984.

The European Commission is considering a ban on all facial recognition technology in public places for three to five years, the BBC reported.

The Commission hopes to examine the technology during these years with “a sound methodology for assessing the impacts of this technology and possible risk management measures could be identified and developed,” the EC’s 18-page white paper on facial recognition writes...

MANDATORY VACCINE BILL FAILS AFTER THOUSANDS SHOW UP TO PROTEST IN NEW JERSEY

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST
(Support Free Thought) -

A bill in New Jersey that would’ve stripped parents and children of their right to informed consent by allowing them to object to mandatory vaccinations failed on Monday. Much to the chagrin of the tyrants who claim ownership over the bodies of others, the bill that would have eliminated religious exemptions to mandatory vaccinations failed to pass the New Jersey state legislature.

According to reports, the bill was canceled in the Senate before the vote because lawmakers knew they lacked the passing votes. The proponents of the bill vowed to reintroduce it on Tuesday but this gives opponents a new time frame on the public hearing and voting process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have ever wondered who owns both state, and national politicians, just look at the things you are mandated to do, or not do; and big pharma has state and national politicians by a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy.

California: Buying Health Insurance Without Being Slimed

By law, the only period of in the year (barring extreme or life changing circumstances) in which you can start, or change, your health insurance plan ended on December 15, nationwide.

Open enrollment in California, however, continues all the way until the end of January --11:59 p.m., January 31, 2020, to be exact.

Needless to say, Health Insurance companies want as many Californians to think this deadline has passed as possible.

That way, when they find out their plan was "upgraded" and is now prohibitively expensive, they will assume – wrongly – that there is nothing they can do.

Amazon Admits Employees Have Secretly Watched Ring Camera Customers

By Joe Wolverton, II

In a letter to U.S. senators, tech behemoth Amazon admits that it has fired employees discovered to have been spying on customers using the company’s Ring cameras.

Although the Ring cameras were originally marketed as a way to see who’s standing outside the door before opening it, many users have installed the surveillance equipment inside the house.

Ring’s eight-page letter was a response to inquiries made by five U.S. senators regarding the company’s security policies and findings of the company’s internal audits. In November 2019 Senators Ron Wyden, Chris Van Hollen, Edward J. Markey, Christopher A. Coons, and Gary C. Peters co-signed the letter looking for answers to questions about stories of privacy breaches being reported in the media...

Tesla's "Black Boxes" Are Only Accessible By The Company (Not NTSB Or NHTSA) After Crashes

Like in airplanes, Teslas are equipped with "black boxes" that log critical information in the seconds and minutes leading up to accidents and crashes. They record details like braking, airbag deployment and other measurements.

While conventional vehicles can have their Black Boxes accessed widely, cars with automated driving technologies can only have their information accessed by the manufacturer. This means that any potential investigation hinges on information that would need to be handed over by the company that's being investigated.

And so Bloomberg's Dana Hull asks a good question: should we be worried that the only people that have access to this information are the manufacturers themselves?

And we'll ask another question: isn't this even more true when, say, that company perhaps doesn't have the best track record for unbridled honesty?

AMERICA IS THE 4TH WORST ABUSER OF BIOMETRIC PRIVACY RIGHTS IN THE WORLD

SOURCE: MASS PRIVATE I

credit: Comparitech

Does anyone really believe America is still the land of the free?

Since 9/11, DHS, the FBI, the CIA, and countless other alphabet soup agencies have turned the United States into a public surveillance monstrosity.

In 19 years, one terrorist attack has done what no one else could have dreamed of: turn America’s freedoms into a distant memory.

Abusing citizen’s rights and privacy used to be the hallmark of dictatorships and police states like the CCCP or North Korea.

A recent study conducted by Comparitech, rated 50 countries from best to worst at protecting citizen’s biometric data.

The study found that America is one of the world’s worst abusers of citizen’s biometric privacy.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Sonos Trade-Up Program Bricks Old Speakers, Creating Toxic Landfill Waste

Sonos sells the program to participants saying “sustainability is non-negotiable.” But according to one report from an e-waste recycler, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Sonos’ recycle mode intentionally bricks old devices so they cannot be reused.

A Twitter thread brought attention to the matter when several Sonos Play:5 speakers were submitted. Each of the speakers is worth about $250. To be eligible for the Sonos Trade-Up program, users are required to put their devices in ‘recycle mode.‘

After 21 days, the device is deactivated and cannot be ‘recycled’ as it renders the device permanently useless.

While many users of the program think they’re helping the environment, the opposite is true. Bricked devices cannot be reused and go directly into a landfill. What’s worse is that some Sonos users manage to activate ‘recycle mode’ accidentally.

Profile of a CIA-funded vaccine propagandist: Lena Sun at the Washington Post attacks natural health pioneers while pimping deadly vaccines.
Friday, December 27, 2019 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) The Washington Post is a CIA front, owned by Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, who also built much of the CIA’s “private cloud” data processing infrastructure after winning a $600 million contract from the agency in 2013. In the years since, the Washington Post has functioned as pure propaganda, pushing fake “Russia hoax” news, smearing Trump administration officials and promoting the lies of deep state criminals like John Brennan and James Comey who are still trying to pull off an illegal political coup.

Trump’s EPA Goes to Bat for Bayer as Company Fights $25 Million Verdict in Roundup Cancer Case

resident Donald Trump‘s Environmental Protection Agency—already accused of being “pesticide cheerleader”—threw its weight behind chemical company Bayer AG on Friday when the agency asked a federal appeals court to reverse a lower court’s ruling in favor of a man who said the company’s Roundup weedkiller was responsible for his cancer.

The case centers on Edwin Hardeman of California, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015 after using the glyphosate-based pesticide, made by Monsanto, for years on his property. Bayer acquired Monsanto last year.

A federal jury in July ordered the company to pay Hardeman roughly $25 million in damages, a lower amount than the $80 million a federal judge had ordered months earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF any one of us were to advocate the consistent dosing of the families of EPA members with the amount of Roundup to which this man had been exposed, we would be charged with "terroristic threatening".

And if it hasn't dawned on you by now, it's official: President Trump, and the cronies he has chosen to run this government, are just as much a swamp creatures as those who he excoriates in his rants and addresses.

Israel says filing error to blame for strike that killed nine members of al-Sawarka familyIsraeli army says the home of the Palestinian family was not a military compound as it was previously categorised

In November, Israel conducted a series of air strikes on the Gaza Strip after it assassinated a senior Islamic Jihad commander and his wife.

The Palestinian armed group retaliated to the assassination by launching a barrage of rockets into Israel, before the two parties agreed on a ceasefire following joint Egyptian and UN mediation.

‘All that’s left are their school uniforms’: Israeli air strike kills eight Palestinian relatives
Read More »
During the two days of air strikes, at least 34 Palestinians were reported killed and more than 100 wounded.

No Israelis were killed during the same time period.

The deadliest of these attacks was carried out on the home of the al-Sawarka family, killing eight members of the family, including children.

A week after the strike, a ninth member of the family, Mohammed al-Sawarka, died from injuries sustained in the bombing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was no "computer error"; this was "genocide by increments", wiping out a few Palestinian families, and their children.

It is a favorite tactic of the IDF, who, after the slaughter, say, "Geewhiz, gang, our bad! It was a clerical error which caused the slaughter of these innocent families, really, you have to believe us, honest, it was just a mistake!"

This is why the peaceful, non-violent course of BDS is the right, and moral course, for the rest of the world to follow against Israel for these horrific assassinations; Most Israelis speak Hebrew, and some may speak some English; but all Israelis are very bi-lingual when it comes to economics.

5 Best Marijuana Strains for Arthritis Pain Relief [2019 Update]

In the U.S. arthritis is the most common form of disability and medical cannabis is slowly penetrating the market gaining acknowledgment as an effective medical treatment. But before we explain the benefits of cannabis as a treatment, let’s understand a little bit about arthritis.

THC is a strong anti-inflammatory and pain killer and has been shown to assist patients suffering from arthritis. THC is also an antispasmodic, bronchodilator, muscle relaxant – a powerful neuroprotectant and antioxidant. As a matter of fact, it has twice the anti-inflammatory power of hydrocortisone and 20 times of aspirin.

THC and CBD are believed to have a synergistic effect meaning that when they are both present at therapeutic levels in a marijuana strain, they are more effective than simply alone.

The Crumbling of America

In June of 2013 an Interstate bridge on a main commercial corridor between Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, Canada, collapsed and fell into the river below after being hit by a truck. This was not a high-speed collision; the truck simply bumped one of the main support pillars at low speed, but the weakened and dilapidated pillar broke from the strain and, without that extra bit of support, the entire bridge immediately collapsed. In prior examinations, the heavily-travelled bridge had not only been rated as functionally obsolete but structurally deficient and requiring replacement.

This is only one of thousands; the great majority of the physical infrastructure of the US is in a similar condition, involving roads, dams, bridges and more. More than 160,000 bridges in the US are officially categorized as dangerous, at risk of collapse, with such collapses now regularly occurring. (1) (2) (3)

Samsung backtracks on its claim that it sold a million bendable Galaxy Folds, blaming its president for confusing the figure with sales targets

Samsung is stepping away from its claim of selling 1 million Galaxy Folds just a week after one of its top executives suggested the accomplishment in a public interview.

According to a report from Korean news agency, Yonhap, Samsung is denying the claim made by its President Young Sohn at a recent conference held by TechCrunch in Berlin.

'... We’re selling [a] million of these products,' Sohn told TechCrunch at the conference.

'There’s a million people that want to use this product at $2,000.'

Yonhap reports that a Samsung spokesperson has since suggested that Sohn confused the tech giant's initial sales target with actual figures.

Previous estimates of sales placed the phone at around 500,000 units globally in October.

Covert Chemical Warfare: 100,000 Deaths a Year from Prescription Drugs

Medical Diagnosis: Confusion

These days, doctors often run antibody tests on patients to see if they have a particular disease.

What is an antibody test?

In the simplest terms, it is aimed at detecting a person’s immune system responding to the presence of a specific germ.

A doctor suspects you have disease X, which is caused by virus Y. He takes a blood sample, and that sample is examined for the presence of antibodies which are specific to virus Y.

If you test positive for the presence of those antibodies, he says you have disease X.

However, there is a vaccine that is supposed to protect a person from disease X, and this vaccine does what?

IT PRODUCES ANTIBODIES SPECIFIC TO VIRUS Y.

In that case, you are said to be immune from virus Y.

That’s right.

This is what is called a contradiction.

“2.6 million people die annually in low-and middle-income countries from medical errors, and that most of those deaths are related to misdiagnosis and administration of pharmaceutical products…Medication errors alone cost an estimated $42 billion (US dollars) annually. Unsafe surgical care procedures cause complications in up to 25% of patients resulting in 1 million deaths during or immediately after surgery annually…Four out of every ten patients are harmed during primary and ambulatory health care.

Walmart Pork Found To Have "Superbug" Bacteria Resistant To Antibiotics

A new study published by animal-welfare group World Animal Protection has arrived at some stunning findings about pork products begin sold at Walmart.

The report , published by FoodDive, found that pork samples purchased from Walmart contained "superbug" antibiotic-resistant bacteria. 80% of samples tested from Mid-Atlantic Walmart stores were resistant to at least one antibiotic. Additionally, 37% of the bacteria in the Walmart samples were resistant to three or more classes of antibiotics.

In sum, about 27% of the resistant bacteria found on Walmart’s pork were resistant to classes categorized as Highest Priority Critically Important Antimicrobials by the World Health Organization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have purchased any pork from Walmart, and have already eaten it, you may want to go to your doctor to have some tests done, and if the antibiotic-resistant bug is found, that doctor needs to be very careful about how they are treating you for this.

IF your doctor is a practitioner of what is called "complementary Medicine", which includes holistic approaches involving nutrition and supplements, you may stand a better chance of recovering from this infection.

California Plans to Hike Tax on Legal Marijuana, Threatening New Market With Rapid Extinction

Free Enterprise will always beat over-regulated,over taxed Capitalism. $3 out of every $4 spent on Cannabis in Cali go to the black market growers.

The Golden State’s marijuana tax schemes are already threatening the new market with rapid extinction, despite the promises that the revenues from the legalized pot would create a veritable Utopia.

California has long expected to be the world’s crown jewel of cannabis sales. Although estimates vary, most of Wall Street expects California to generate $10 billion to $11 billion in annual sales by 2030. Yet, in the state’s first full year of recreational marijuana sales, California’s total pot revenue declined. In 2017, when California only sold medical marijuana, sales hit roughly $3 billion. Then, in 2018, with both recreational and medical cannabis available, statewide sales plunged $500 million to $2.5 billion. A big reason for this drop is that California has been taxing the daylights out of its consumers.

State ignored worker death to lure Amazon business, report says

I worked at the Troutdale fulfillment center. Took 6 minutes to get to the break room. 12 minutes total for a 15 minute break. Dangerous place to work.

Spent 3 months as an Amazon delivery driver. After about 4,000 times getting out of the van on the left leg my Meniscus tore in several places. Been fighting a WC Claim ever since. The doctor wants to do surgery,Amazon's insurance company is now having me see their doctor. They want to eliminate or minimize the payout. They have been nice so far,but now it is crunch time.
The Amazon Prime delivery driver job is dangerous too.

"You don't take your lunch break. You don't use the bathroom... There were guys peeing in bottles in the van," he said, including himself in that category. "You speed. You run stop signs in a neighborhood... You start conditioning yourself to just go as fast as possible."
