Random Heat Checks (China To Bid on US High-Speed Rail; H1N1 Vaccine Surplus in Georgia; Coffee Party Hype; 1st Carbon Credit Sold; Huge Deficits)

1. China to Bid on America's high-speed rail projects - I know that China has some expertise on the subject of high-speed railroads, but shouldn't America be trying to develop American companies that also have this high-speed rail expertise?

Georgia has more than 2 1/2 million unused doses of swine flu vaccine - No one wants the toxic vaccines!

Why is Viacom/CBS/Viacom promoting the White House's fake "astroturf" Coffee Party? - I will pass on any invite to a Coffee Party, because it sounds like some fake MSNBC grassroots organization.

Pennsylvania couple sells world's first carbon credit awarded for a reduction in personal carbon emissions - This couple may be well-meaning, but nevertheless, they are idiots. This couple reduces the family's energy outputs and invests in alternative energies. This is a good thing. The couple gets a credit for its reduction and then the couple sells that reduction to Molten Metal Equipment Innovations of Ohio. However, what is to stop Molten Equipment or some other company that buys these credits from using these credits to simply pollute the same or more? The companies that buy these credits will simply pass the price of buying carbon credits along to the consumers. Overall prices will increase and industrial pollution will continue.

Arianna Huffington DDTs Jesse Ventura's 9/11 Truth Article By Deleting It From Her Post

Arianna Huffington

Below is the Jesse Ventura 9/11 truth article that was recently removed by The Huffington Post. I guess Ms. Huffington does not want an honest debate on a serious subject. Instead, HuffPo reveals itself as being just another controlled media outlet.


Huffington Post/Jesse Ventura – Article #2 (”American Conspiracies”)


You didn’t see anything about it in the mainstream media, but two weeks ago at a conference in San Francisco, more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.

That’s right, these people put their reputations in potential jeopardy – because they don’t buy the government’s version of events. They want to know how 200,000 tons of steel disintegrated and fell to the ground in 11 seconds. They question whether the hijacked planes were responsible – or whether it could have been a controlled demolition from inside that brought down the Twin Towers and Building 7.

Richard Gage, a member of the American Institute of Architects and the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth, put it like this: “The official Federal Emergency Management [Agency] and National Institute of Standards and Technology reports provide insufficient, contradictory and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers’ destruction.” He’s especially disturbed by Building 7, whose 447 stories came down in “pure free-fall acceleration” that afternoon – even though it was never hit by an aircraft.

This is a subject I take up in my new book, American Conspiracies , published this week by Skyhorse. An excerpt follows:

Some people have argued that the twin towers went down, within a half hour of one another, because of the way they were constructed. Well, those 425,000 cubic yards of concrete and 200,000 tons of steel were designed to hold up against a Boeing 707, the largest plane built at the time the towers were completed in 1973. Analysis had shown that a 707 traveling at 600 miles an hour (and those had four engines) would not cause major damage. The twin-engine Boeing 757s that hit on 9/11 were going 440 and 550 miles an hour.

Still, we are told that a molten, highly intense fuel mixture from the planes brought down these two steel-framed skyscrapers. Keep in mind that no other such skyscraper in history had ever been known to collapse completely due to fire damage. So could it actually have been the result of a controlled demolition from inside the buildings? I don’t claim expertise about this, but I did work four years as part of the Navy’s underwater demolition teams, where we were trained to blow things to hell and high water. And my staff talked at some length with a prominent physicist, Steven E. Jones, who says that a “gravity driven collapse” without demolition charges defies the laws of physics. These buildings fell, at nearly the rate of free-fall, straight down into their own footprint, in approximately ten seconds. An object dropped from the roof of the 110-story-tall towers would reach the ground in about 9.2 seconds. Then there’s the fact that steel beams that weighed as much as 200,000 pounds got tossed laterally as far as 500 feet.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) started its investigation on August 21, 2002. When their 10,000-page-long report came out three years later, the spokesman said there was no evidence to suggest a controlled demolition. But Steven E. Jones also says that molten metal found underground weeks later is proof that jet fuel couldn’t have been all that was responsible. I visited the site about three weeks after 9/11, with Governor Pataki and my wife Terry. It didn’t mean anything to me at the time, but they had to suspend digging that day because they were running into heat pockets of huge temperatures. These fires kept burning for more than three months, the longest-burning structure blaze ever. And this was all due to jet fuel? We’re talking molten metal more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Probably the most conclusive evidence about a controlled demolition is a research paper (two years, nine authors) published in the peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal , in April 2009. In studying dust samples from the site, these scientists found chips of nano-thermite, which is a high-tech incendiary/explosive. Here’s what the paper’s lead author, Dr. Niels Harrit of the University of Copenhagen’s chemistry department, had to say about the explosive that he’s convinced brought down the Twin Towers and the nearby Building 7:

“Thermite itself dates back to 1893. It is a mixture of aluminum and rust-powder, which react to create intense heat. The reaction produces iron, heated to 2500 degrees Centigrade. This can be used to do welding. It can also be used to melt other iron. So in nano-thermite, this powder from 1893 is reduced to tiny particles, perfectly mixed. When these react, the intense heat develops much more quickly. Nano-thermite can be mixed with additives to give off intense heat, or serve as a very effective explosive. It contains more energy than dynamite, and can be used as rocket fuel.” [i]

Richard Gage is one of hundreds of credentialed architects and structural engineers who have put their careers on the line to point out the detailed anomalies and many implications of controlled demolition in the building collapses. As he puts it bluntly: “Once you get to the science, it’s indisputable.”

MIT Researchers Discover Process for Generating Electricity Using Nanotechnlogy to Create Thermopower Waves

The technology behind this nanotechnology process is a little more advanced than my overall comprehension, so I hope I do not make a fool of myself trying to explain it for this blog article. Actually, CNN does a much better job of explaining how these MIT researchers discovered a novel way to create electricity.

It works like this: Researchers used tiny wires, known as carbon nanotubes, to create a powerful wave of energy, according to Michael Strano, and MIT associate professor of chemical engineering. He is also the senior author of a paper on this new phenomenon, published in this week's Nature Materials journal.

After coating these tiny wires with a layer of fuel, Strano said his team generated a so-called thermopower wave and stumbled across a reaction that may eventually be used to power electronics, computers and cell phones.

Mexican Military Helicopter Spotted Flying Over U.S. Neighborhood in Texas

I wonder if this Mexican Navy helicopter spotted flying in the Texas skies near Falcon Lake is one of the five (5) Bell helicopters that America gave to Mexico recently. Unless this Mexican chopper was being escorted by U.S. military, then this Mexican helicopter should have been shot down immediately.

The Zapata County sheriff Thursday was questioning why a Mexican military helicopter was hovering over homes on the Texas side of the Rio Grande...

Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said he'd reviewed photos of the chopper flown by armed personnel Tuesday over a residential area known as Falcon Heights-Falcon Village near the binational Falcon Lake, just south of the Starr-Zapata county line. He said the helicopter appeared to have the insignia of the Mexican navy.

Senator Joe Lieberman Rebrands Cap-and-Trade Global Warming Tax as "Pollution Reduction"

People are no longer falling for the global warming scam promoted by the likes of Al Gore and others who stand to gain financially if a cap-and-trade market system is instituted in the United States of America. A year ago this global warming scam was much more underground than it is today. Now, even grannies know about Climategate. Therefore, Lieberman feels it is time for a rebranding.

Blackwater changed its name to Xe after bad publicity, and similarly, Senator Joseph Lieberman laughingly proclaimed that cap-and-trade has a new name. Cap-and-trade is now "pollution reduction" in Lieberman's eyes.Well in my eyes, just 'cause you pour syrup on sh*t, don't make it pancakes!

Cap-and-trade is still the same and it is still designed to cripple industry and caused forced shortages. I don't trust Lieberman one bit, because you can't spell Lieberman without the "lie" and "man."

Senator Joseph Lieberman, an independent trying to draft a bipartisan [cap and trade] bill, said, "We don't use that term anymore."

Instead Lieberman said, laughing: "We will have pollution reduction targets."...

NASA: Did the Chilean Earthquake Shift Earth's Axis?

This is quite the story and it shows the power of Mother Earth when she wants to rattle her bones with an 8.8 quake like the one in Chile last month. The quake was so powerful that NASA believes it has shifted the Earth's axis. Wow, that is powerful. The article is below.

Did the Chilean Quake Shift Earth's Axis?


March 11, 2010: Pictures of widespread devastation leave no doubt: Last month's 8.8 magnitude earthquake in coastal Chile was strong. How strong? NASA scientists say it might have shifted the axis of Earth itself.

"If our calculations are correct, the quake moved Earth's figure axis by about 3 inches (8 cm)," says geophysicist Richard Gross of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Right: A USGS map of the Chilean quake. [more]

You might think you would have noticed if the Earth suddenly tilted by 3 inches. But that's not how the "figure axis" works. "The figure axis defines not how Earth is tilted, but rather how it is balanced," says Gross.

Consider the following:

Earth is not a perfect sphere. Continents and oceans are distributed unevenly around the planet. There's more land in the north, more water in the south, a great ocean in the west, and so on. As a result of these asymmetries, Earth slowly wobbles as it spins. The figure axis is Earth's axis of mass balance, and the spin axis wobbles around it.

"The Chilean quake shifted enough material to change the mass balance of our entire planet," Gross says.

A shifting figure axis is nothing new. On its own, the figure axis moves about 10 centimeters per year as a result of "Ice Age rebound." After the last great glacial period some 11,000 years ago, many heavy ice sheets disappeared. This unloaded the crust and mantle of the Earth, allowing the planet to relax or "rebound" back into a more spherical shape. The rebounding process is still underway and so the figure axis naturally moves.

On Feb. 27, 2010, the Chilean quake may have moved the figure axis as much in a matter of minutes as it normally moves in a whole year. It was a truly seismic shift—no pun intended.

So far, however, it's all calculation and speculation. "We haven't actually measured the shift," says Gross. "But I intend to give it a try."

The key is GPS1. "Using a global network of GPS receivers, we can monitor the rotation of Earth with high precision," he says. "Changes in Earth's spin and the orientation of Earth's axes affect [the phase and timing of] signals we get from the satellites in Earth orbit."

GPS is already used to monitor seasonal changes in Earth's spin. It turns out that tides, winds, ocean currents, and circulation patterns in Earth's molten core modulate Earth's rotation on a regular basis. For instance, a typical day in January is about 1 millisecond longer than a typical day in June. The roughly six-month variation is driven mainly by seasonal winds; there are also changes on time scales of weeks, years, decades and centuries.

see caption

Above: Observed changes in Earth's length of day caused by tides, winds, ocean currents and other factors. From Treatise on Geophysics, 2007, section 3.09, "Earth Rotation Variations--Long Period" by Richard Gross. [larger image]

Earthquakes throw a "spike" into GPS signals, which Gross believes he can find.

"I have to take the GPS Earth rotation measurements and subtract the effects of tides, winds and ocean currents," he explains. "Then the earthquake should stand out."

Recent news reports have focused on Earth's length of day, noting that the Chilean earthquake might have shortened days by as much as 1.26 microseconds out of 24 hours. That's true. But it's also negligible compared to the normal effect of wind and tides, which can lengthen or shorten days a thousand times more than earthquakes can.

see captionThe real news, as Gross sees it, is the possible shift in Earth's figure axis. He has a very "JPL perspective" on the issue: "The antennas we use to track spacecraft en route to Mars and elsewhere are located on Earth. If our tracking platform shifts, we need to know about it."

Right: The normal wobble of Earth's axis since Jan. 2009 as reported by the International Earth Rotation Service. The grid is scaled in milliarcseconds (mas); 1 mas = 1/3,600,000 deg. [larger image]

No one has ever measured a shift in Earth's axis due to an earthquake before. Back in 2004, Gross looked for a shift from the magnitude 9.1 earthquake in Sumatra, but failed to find a signal. The Sumatra quake was less effective in altering Earth's figure axis because of its location near the equator and the orientation of the underlying fault. The Chilean quake, albeit weaker, may have produced a bigger shift.

The stage is set for discovery. "Computing power is at an all-time high. Our models of tides, winds and ocean currents have never been better. And the orientation of the Chilean fault favors a stronger signal."

In a few months Gross hopes to have the answer. Stay tuned.

India to Offer Sanofi Pasteur's H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine Starting Next Week

India is finally getting the H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine. Why has it taken so long for India to get the toxic swine flu vaccine when the rest of the world has had it for months?

Here is the package insert for Sanofi Pasteur's H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine in the United States of America that was first approved in 1980. The ingredients may also be viewed below. I do not know if the Indian vaccine will be the same as the one here in America, but I will check.

Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine, an inactivated influenza virus vaccine, for intramuscular use, is prepared from influenza viruses propagated in embryonated chicken eggs. The virus-containing allantoic fluid is harvested and inactivated with formaldehyde. Influenza virus is concentrated and purified in a linear sucrose density gradient solution using a continuous flow centrifuge. The virus is then chemically disrupted using a non-ionic surfactant, polyethylene glycol p-isooctylphenyl ether (Triton® X-100), producing a “split virus”. The split virus is further purified and then suspended in sodium phosphate-buffered isotonic sodium chloride solution.

Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is formulated to contain 15 mcg hemagglutinin (HA) of influenza A/California/07/2009 (H1N1) v-like virus per 0.5 mL dose. Gelatin 0.05% is added as a stabilizer. Each 0.5 mL dose may contain residual amounts of formaldehyde (not more than 100 mcg), polyethylene glycol p-isooctylphenyl ether (not more than 0.02%), and sucrose (not more than 2.0%).

There is no thimerosal used in the manufacturing process of the single-dose presentations of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine. The multi-dose presentation of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine contains thimerosal, a mercury derivative, added as a preservative. Each 0.5 mL dose of the multidose presentation contains 25 mcg mercury.

Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monvalent Vaccine is a sterile clear to a slightly opalescent suspension.

Antibiotics are not used in the manufacture of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine.

All presentations of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine do not contain latex.

Open Letter Opposing Asilomar Geoengineering Conference in Monterey, California March 22-26, 2010

Open Letter to the Climate Response Fund and the Scientific Organizing Committee

RE: Asilomar International Conference on Climate Intervention Technologies: March 22-26 2010

As civil society organizations and social movements working to find constructive solutions to climate change, we want to express our deep concerns with the upcoming privately organized meeting on geoengineering in Asilomar, California. Its stated aim, which is to «develop a set of voluntary guidelines, or best practices, for the least harmful and lowest risk conduct of research and testing of proposed climate intervention and geoengineering technologies,» is moving us down the wrong road too soon and without any speed limit.

Geoengineering refers to the large-scale technological manipulation of the climate and related systems through techniques such as putting sulphate aerosols in the stratosphere, fertilizing the ocean, and whitening the clouds. The priority at this time is not to sort out the conditions under which this experimentation might take place but, rather, whether or not the community of nations and peoples believes that geoengineering is technically, legally, socially, environmentally and economically acceptable.

Without any international consensus as to whether geoengineering is an acceptable intervention in natural systems, the Climate Response Fund and its Scientific Organizing Committee’s discussion about «voluntary guidelines» is nonsensical. The Conference organizers -- almost exclusively white male scientists from industrialized countries -- are presuming that they have the experience, wisdom and legitimacy to determine who should or should not be invited into this conversation.

There are many scenarios where geoengineering experiments with cross-border impacts would violate existing treaties (the 1978 Environmental Modification Convention or ENMOD Treaty, amongst others). The establishment of «voluntary guidelines» by an informal group meeting in Asilomar could undermine local, national, or international laws, as well as compromise strategies for mitigation and adaptation. Moreover, the history of voluntary guidelines is that companies simply do not follow them. Not only will the scientists involved in this enterprise be giving their blessing to dangerous geoengineering technologies, they have no authority to force corporations or governments to comply.

The issue of large-scale geoengineering experimentation and its impact is not about technical peer-review. It is about no less than rights, responsibilities and the future of the planet. This public debate must, at the very least, include the peoples and countries that are most vulnerable and likely to be affected by geoengineering, not only those who stand to gain. Such a discussion cannot happen without the participation of the full membership of the United Nations. Determining guidelines for geoengineering research and testing in the absence of that debate is premature and irresponsible.

Clearly, the lack of transparency and conflict of interest in the organization of the Conference leaves serious doubt about who is setting the agenda and whose interests are being served. In the few materials that have been published [1], it is stated that (unnamed) donors, the Climate Response Fund, and the Climate Institute have no «financial interest in the particulars of the technologies or the guidelines that are being developed.» Yet these organizations have publicly welcomed private sector input and money, including support from fossil fuel interests and car manufacturers. Finally, despite the fact that a list of the funders and details for the Conference was promised for 1 January 2010, the names have yet to be disclosed.

It is vital that the international debate about geoengineering not be left in the hands of those with a self-interest in its facilitation, pursuit and profit. It concerns us all and must be brought out into the open where all can participate.

That will not happen in March in Asilomar.

America May Soon Require National Biometric Identification Card to Work Any Job

Big brother is here circa 2010. Once this immigration law passes, then any gainfully employed person will be required to be tracked, traced and databased by the federal government. The immigration reform law includes a measure requiring all workers to get a national biometric identification card.

Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker.

The ID card plan is one of several steps advocates of an immigration overhaul are taking to address concerns that have defeated similar bills in the past.

This law cannot be allowed to pass, because it is a ridiculous violation of privacy. If the law does pass, how long will it take before someone makes a cloaking sleeve, so that the card cannot be tracked? I say it will take a week or less. These sleeves are probably already available for the RFID tags in our current cards.

CBS Atlanta: Is Water Fluoridation Necessary? (Video)

Click the picture above (or here) for the video of the CBS Atlanta news story asking whether water fluoridation is dangerous. I believe sodium fluoride in the water supply is dangerous and I try to avoid drinking this toxic substance, if possible. Just look at the picture below of a fluoride operator decked in protective gear from this substance that many of us drink and use.

International Monetary Fund (IMF) Proposes Global Climate Change Fund (Tax) for World Governments!

In order for there to be a one world government, the globalists must have some type of global tax on every man, woman and child on the planet. The globalists cannot just come out and demand that everyone pay a global tax, because people would get ignant (yes, I said ignant) and wild out on a worldwide scale. Therefore, the globalists have gotten creative and have come up with a way to impose a global tax without people realizing that it is a global tax.

Enter the global warming/carbon credit scam. Everyone has to breathe. Everyone has to consume. By taxing the human life cycle, the globalists get their global tax and most people will not even realize what is happening. No one ever discusses how paying money to a climate fund or climate exchange run by bankers actually helps the environment. Genetic modification is still happening. Heavy metal ocean dumping still occurs. And millions are being injected with toxic vaccine ingredients.

One such example: The IMF falls under the definition of a globalist, namely a globalist banking entity. Ironically, the IMF is proposing a new fund for the world's governments in the name of climate change. If the IMF and/or other globalists are able to pass a global carbon tax, then the world government will be fully operational.

The head of the International Monetary Fund has proposed a plan for the world's governments to pool together to raise money needed to adapt to climate change, a rare step for an organisation that normally does not develop environmental policies.

The IMF managing director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, said the fund is concerned by the huge amount of money needed and the effect this will have on the global economy. He added that the proposal may help efforts to reach a binding agreement on climate change this year.

Sebelius Believes Obama Will Have Enough Votes to Pass Health Care Reform

Wyoming Firearms Freedom Act (HB0095) Passes State Legislature (Set to Become Law)

Wyoming Firearms Freedom Act (HB0095)

Similar to the Firearms Freedom Acts passed in Tennessee, Montana and Utah, Wyoming has joined the dance. The law exempts firearms made in Wyoming from federal regulation.

Legislation asserting that firearms made, sold and kept only in Wyoming are exempt from all federal gun laws is set to become law after it easily cleared the Wyoming Legislature on Wednesday.

Supporters say the bill is mainly a symbolic shove against the federal government, and it remains to be seen whether the fight will carry over to the courts or even to Wyoming streets.

House Bill 95 also adds a criminal element to federal officials who try to enforce a federal order relating to Wyoming firearms.

Any official, agent or employee of the United States government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Wyoming and that remains exclusively within the borders of Wyoming shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be subject to imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, a fine of not more than two thousand dollars ($2,000.00), or both.

Vitamin D Reportedly Controls & Activates Human T Cells and Deficiency Can Potentially Cause Flu & Other Infections

Just a note of disclaimer, I take Vitamin D every day and I can speak positively on its personal benefits. Therefore, this recent report from that discusses these potential Vitamin D benefits caught my attention. The article cites a study from Nature Immunology (the abstract is included below) about Vitamin D's control of human T-cells. T-cells play a central role in the human immune system at a cellular level.

A new study led by researchers at the University of Copenhagen has confirmed that vitamin D plays an important role in activating immune defenses against infectious diseases like flu.

As mentioned, the abstract is below. I don't have access to Nature Immunology, so I have not been able to read the full report yet. Perhaps Nature Immunology will send me a copy for news blogging purposes (wink, wink).

Vitamin D deficiency is why you get flu and other infections

Vitamin D controls T cell antigen receptor signaling and activation of human T cells

Phospholipase C (PLC) isozymes are key signaling proteins downstream of many extracellular stimuli. Here we show that naive human T cells had very low expression of PLC-γ1 and that this correlated with low T cell antigen receptor (TCR) responsiveness in naive T cells. However, TCR triggering led to an upregulation of ~75-fold in PLC-γ1 expression, which correlated with greater TCR responsiveness. Induction of PLC-γ1 was dependent on vitamin D and expression of the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Naive T cells did not express VDR, but VDR expression was induced by TCR signaling via the alternative mitogen-activated protein kinase p38 pathway. Thus, initial TCR signaling via p38 leads to successive induction of VDR and PLC-γ1, which are required for subsequent classical TCR signaling and T cell activation.

FLASHBACK: Vandenberg Air Force Base Successfully Launches Minuteman III to Targets Near the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands

Vandenberg successfully launches Minuteman III

6/29/2009 - VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- An unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile configured with a National Nuclear Security Administration test assembly launched from North Vandenberg today at 3:01 a.m.

The launch was an operational test to verify the weapon system's reliability and accuracy.

The missile carried three unarmed re-entry vehicles approximately 4,190 miles at speeds in excess of 24,000 mph to their pre-determined targets near the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

Col. David Buck, the 30th Space Wing commander, was the mission's launch decision authority. Lt. Col. Lesa K. Toler, the 576th Flight Test Squadron commander, was the mission director for this test launch.

"It's really something when you see a truly outstanding team come together," Colonel Buck said. "As a former Top Hander myself, I know that the Airmen of the 576th FLTS are the best of the best when it comes to force development evaluation, and, as the 30th Space Wing commander, I know that this is the best range team in the world. I couldn't think of a better team to demonstrate the awesome capability of our ICBM fleet."

Throughout the preparation and execution of the mission, maintenance and operations task force personnel from the 91st Missile Wing out of Minot AFB, N.D., integrated with the 576th FLTS to perform operational tasks. Members of the 576th FLTS installed tracking, telemetry and command destruct systems on the missile to collect data and meet 30th Space Wing safety requirements.

"These are dangerous times we're living in right now," said Colonel Toler. "It's extremely important our combatant commander has the capabilities he needs to perform the mission of fighting and winning our nation's wars. Testing an operational asset pulled from the missile field at Minot provides us confidence our weapon system is capable of performing when needed."

The data collected will be used by the entire ICBM community, including the United States Strategic Command planners and Department of Energy laboratories.

FLASHBACK: Poway Skate Park Requires Skateboaders' Digital Fingerprint Scan By Installing $50,000 Automated Access Control System

Poway Skate Park Automated Access Control System Letter

**UPDATE (July 12, 2010) - The fingerprint system is now active. Watch the news video by clicking here.

More big brother stuff - this time on the skate tip. As a skateboarder, this is ridiculous that someone has to be tracked, traced and databased to use the Poway City Skate Park. Basically, skateboarders have to get fingerprinted if they want to use the city skatepark. What type of security protocols does Poway take to ensure that the fingerprints stored in the city's database do not fall into the wrong hands and/or are used for illicit purposes?

The below article is dated from about a year ago. Ultimately, the fingerprinting scanning concept was unanimously approved by the City Council. In case, you don't know, Poway is a suburb north of San Diego, California.

The City Council is considering upgrading security cameras and putting a gate on the unsupervised park to help protect it from vandalism and graffiti...[U]sers would have to register with the city and be fingerprinted, and a electronic gate on the park would open after their thumbprint is scanned and recognized.

The project would cost $50,000 and $1,500 annually to maintain...

City staff members had considered identification cards to open the gates, but decided on thumbprint scanners because they are more secure and more convenient for the skateboarders, Dudas said. This may be the first time such scanners have been used to control access to a skate park...
