Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Barcode everyone at birth
May 22, 2012 Each week a global thinker from the worlds of philosophy, science, psychology or the arts is given a minute to put forward a radical, inspiring or controversial idea – no matter how improbable – that they believe would change the world.
This week science fiction writer Elizabeth Moon argues that everyone should be given a barcode at birth.
“If I were empress of the Universe I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached - a barcode if you will; an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals.
It would be imprinted on everyone at birth. Point the scanner at someone and there it is.
Having such a unique barcode would have many advantages. In war soldiers could easily differentiate legitimate targets in a population from non combatants.
This could prevent mistakes in identity, mistakes that result in the deaths of innocent bystanders. Weapons systems would record the code of the use, identifying how fired which shot and leading to more accountability in the field.
Anonymity would be impossible as would mistaken identity making it easier to place responsibility accurately, not only in war but also in non-combat situations far from the war.”
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak,
and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
'Hologram' to greet and guide travelers at N.Y. airports
May 22, 2012 A female "avatar" -- in the form of a life-size hologram type of image -- will soon begin greeting and guiding people at special kiosks at the New York area's three airports.
The computerized avatars will provide automated, basic information to travelers in LaGuardia's Central Terminal Building, Newark Liberty's Terminal B and JFK's Terminal 5 when they are installed in early July.
The computer-generated customer-service agent will be able to respond verbally when asked questions on everything from where the nearest restroom is to where customers should head for a connecting flight.
The virtual worker is projected on a pane of glass that was given the figure of a woman.
This is the first time this technology will be used at an airport in North America, according to the Port Authority.
Human barcode could make society more organized, but invades privacy, civil liberties
Jun 1, 2012 Would you barcode your baby?
Microchip implants have become standard practice for our pets, but have been a tougher sell when it comes to the idea of putting them in people.
Science fiction author Elizabeth Moon last week rekindled the debate on whether it's a good idea to "barcode" infants at birth in an interview on a BBC radio program.
“I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached — a barcode if you will — an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals,” she said on The Forum, a weekly show that features "a global thinking" discussing a "radical, inspiring or controversial idea" for 60 seconds .
Moon believes the tools most commonly used for surveillance and identification — like video cameras and DNA testing — are slow, costly and often ineffective.
In her opinion, human barcoding would save a lot of time and money.
The proposal isn’t too far-fetched - it is already technically possible to "barcode" a human - but does it violate our rights to privacy?
Opponents argue that giving up anonymity would cultivate an “Orwellian” society where all citizens can be tracked.
“To have a record of everywhere you go and everything you do would be a frightening thing,” Stanley, senior policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union, told the Daily News.
He warned of a “check-point society” where everyone carries an internal passport and has to show their papers at every turn, he said.
JCPenney’s To Eliminate Check-Out Clerks
July 19, 2012 The CEO of JCPenney is the former retail chief of Apple, and he wants to shake things up to restore the company to profitability.
But one of his ideas – replacing clerks with a self-check-out system – well, that doesn’t go over too well with some customers.
“I think it’s a bad idea all way around if you ask me,” says Jack Soffel of Robinson.
Soffel shops at Penney’s and worries that the change will result in poor customer service.
“I don’t want to walk into a place that’s so austere that it’s nothing but mechanics and automation,” he adds. “I like to talk to people, they help me, they ask me, they take me to find things.”
Penney’s CEO Ron Johnson says the store will switch the traditional bar codes on price tags to RFID’s – or radio frequency identification chips – and use self-service checkout machines found in many grocery stores.
“That’s taking away jobs from people,” notes Kuhn. “People need to work and make money. Plus, if I’m coming to the store, I want to have someone there to help me.”
Now, JCPenney will not be eliminating store clerks all together. Each of the proposed boutiques within the store will have its staff.
U.S. military developing spychips for soldiers
Government wants health benefits from nanosensors
May 5, 2012 The U.S. military wants to plant nanosensors in soldiers to monitor health on future battlefields and immediately respond to needs, but a privacy expert warns the step is just one more down the road to computer chips for all.
“It’s never going to happen that the government at gunpoint says, ‘You’re going to have a tracking chip,’” said Katherine Albrecht, who with Liz McIntyre authored “Spychips,” a book that warns of the threat to privacy posed by Radio Frequency Identification.
“It’s always in incremental steps. If you can put a microchip in someone that doesn’t track them … everybody looks and says, ‘Come on,’” she said. “It’ll be interesting seeing where we go.”
According to a report at Mobiledia, the U.S. military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has confirmed plans to create nanosensors to monitor the health of soldiers on battlefields.
Mint Promotes Digital-Chip Currency For Penniless Future
April 2012 On the cusp of the post-penny age, the Royal Canadian Mint is preparing to launch a digital alternative to all coinage and small bank notes — dubbed "MintChip" — which it hails as the natural next step in the "evolution of currency." The concept was quietly introduced on Wednesday when the Ottawa-based Crown corporation activated a website outlining its vision for the future of MintChip — described as "better than cash" and "so easy even a child can use it" — and invited software developers to begin imagining different ways the technology could be employed. In fact, the mint is offering $50,000 in an old-fashioned currency — gold — to winners of a contest aimed at developing smart-phone apps and other ways of demonstrating MintChip's benefits as a payment system for consumers.
Tracking Chips for Brazilian School Kids
Locator chips keep kids from cutting class in Brazil
March 22, 2012 SAO PAOLO – Grade-school students in a northeastern Brazilian city are using uniforms embedded with locator chips that help alert parents if they're cutting classes.
Twenty thousand students in 25 of Vitoria da Conquista's 213 public schools started using T-shirts with chips earlier this week, secretary Coriolano Moraes said by telephone.
By 2013, all of the city's 43,000 public school students, aged 4 to 14, will be using the chip-embedded T-shirts, he added.
Radio frequency chips in "intelligent uniforms" let a computer know when children enter school and it sends a text message to their cell phones. Parents are also alerted if kids don't show up 20 minutes after classes begin with the following message: "Your child has still not arrived at school."

CHIP the BABIES!
Day care centers turn to biometrics
July 24, 2012 Playhouse Child Care Center already had a keypad that required parents to enter a four-digit code. But Ward said she liked the peace of mind that comes with knowing that anyone picking up a child from the center must first prove their identity. "I'm all about more security when it comes to my kids," Ward said. A growing number of child care centers nationwide are turning to biometric technology to ensure that only parents or authorized caregivers can enter and leave with a child. Biometric systems use distinctive human characteristics, such as a fingerprint or thumbprint, to identify someone before the door will unlock. "There's no way of faking it or bypassing the system or anything like that," said Ted Pichler, owner of the Learning Curve Child Center and Preparatory Preschool in Gilbert, Ariz., one of the first in the nation to adopt biometrics when it opened in 2004.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children doesn't keep statistics on child abductions from day care centers, which are rare. However, child care centers often serve families involved in custody disputes, where one parent isn't allowed to pick up the children, Pichler said. A fingerprint system can help avoid problems because "there's no way for them to access the center," he said.
Playhouse Child Care Center in Sartell chose a fingerprint ID unit when it was upgrading its security system last year because it was easier for parents than remembering a code and more secure, co-director Molly Olmscheid said.
"I do like it because it is so individualized," Olmscheid said. "Parents can't just give so-and-so their security code."
Most child care centers still use an access system that requires a key code to get into a classroom, said Linda Kostantenaco, president of the National Child Care Association.
More Schools Look To Biometric ID For Tracking Kids
August 6, 2012 It’s a high tech idea whose time has — or may sometime soon — come. Palm Beach County schools officials are considering a proposal that would have the more than 60,000 students who ride a big yellow bus to school each day giving their fingerprints on an electronic key pad to get on the bus. In a July 9 message on his department’s blog, School District Chief of Support Operations Joe Sanches told principals that based on their responses in a recent anonymous survey on the use of biometrics in schools “we will seek Board approval to pursue a pilot use on school buses.” Simply put, biometrics is the use of a person’s unique biological characteristics — most typically their fingerprint — to identify them.
First The Biometric Wristband
Scientists are working on creating a new biometric bracelet that could also “talk” to devices on a person’s body, allowing data collected by blood pressure cuffs and heart monitoring devices to be matched to correct electronic records. The devices could prevent mix-ups of health records at military and veteran hospitals. The researchers, led by Dartmouth College computer scientist Cory Cornelius, have developed technology that matches a person's bioimpedance -- their physiological response to the flow of electric current passing through tissues -- to a unique identity. Bioimpedance can be used to pinpoint specific people because everyone has a different structure of bone, flesh and blood vessels.
'Digital pill' with chip inside gets FDA green light
666 Update: Digital Pill With Biometric Tracking Chip & Skin Mark-Patch Gets FDA Green Light
August 3, 2012 Ever wonder if you remembered to take your pills this morning? A medical tech startup has a novel solution: Swallow a computer chip that will help you keep track.
Proteus Digital Health scored a big victory this week when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted approval for the company's "ingestible sensor" invention. The 1 square millimeter device - roughly the size of a grain of sand - can relay information about your insides to you, and if you choose, to your doctor or nurse.
The chip works by being imbedded into a pill. Ingest it at the same time that you take your medication and it will go to work inside you, recording the time you took your dose. It transmits that information through your skin to a stick-on patch, which in turn sends the data to a mobile phone application and any other devices you authorize.
The system's goal is to overcome our forgetful impulses, says Andrew Thompson, the CEO and cofounder of Proteus.
"People live busy and complex lives, and as a result often don't take their medicines correctly," Thompson says. "We wanted to develop a solution that would help make existing medicines more effective in real life."
The European Union approved Proteus' system device in 2010, according to the company. The Redwood City, Calif., company plans to bring its first product, called "Helius," to market later this year in the U.K. in partnership with the Lloydspharmacy chain.
Helius includes Proteus' mobile health app, a supply of its stick-on patches (they last seven days, then need replacing) and a stash of its sensor-equipped placebo chips. The company declined to comment on the system's planned price tag.
The first wave of Proteus products will rely on placebo pills taken at the same time as the patient's medication. The company hopes to eventually get its sensors built straight into common medications, Thompson says.
Proteus' spent four years working through the FDA approval process. Now that it's got a green light, it plans to begin working on a U.S. version of its Helius system.
Scientists Successfully ‘Hack’ Brain To Obtain Private Data
August 24, 2012 It sounds like something out of the movie “Johnny Mnemonic,” but scientists have successfully been able to “hack” a brain with a device that’s easily available on the open market.
Researchers from the University of California and University of Oxford in Geneva figured out a way to pluck sensitive information from a person’s head, such as PIN numbers and bank information.
The scientists took an off-the-shelf Emotiv brain-computer interface, a device that costs around $299, which allows users to interact with their computers by thought.
The scientists then sat their subjects in front of a computer screen and showed them images of banks, people, and PIN numbers. They then tracked the readings coming off of the brain, specifically the P300 signal.
The P300 signal is typically given off when a person recognizes something meaningful, such as someone or something they interact with on a regular basis.
Scientists that conducted the experiment found they could reduce the randomness of the images by 15 to 40 percent, giving them a better chance of guessing the correct answer.
Another interesting facet about the experiments is how the P300 signal could be read for lie detection.
In the paper that the scientists released, they state that “the P300 can be used as a discriminative feature in detecting whether or not the relevant information is stored in the subject’s memory.
“For this reason, a GKT based on the P300 has a promising use within interrogation protocols that enable detection of potential criminal details held by the suspect,” the researchers said.
However, scientists say this way of lie detection is “vulnerable to specific countermeasures,” but not as many compared to a traditional lie detector.
This could only be the beginning of a new form of fraud. Scientists say that a person with their guard lowered could be “easily engaged into ‘mind games’ that camouflage the interrogation of the user and make them more cooperative.”
Also, much like other household electronics, “the ever increasing quality of devices, success rates of attacks will likely improve.”
Be ye not deceived...our blessed hope is eternal life with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ IN HEAVEN!
1 Corin 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
Australians implant 'world first' bionic eye
August 30, 2012 Australian scientists successfully implanted a "world first" bionic eye prototype, describing it as a major breakthrough for the visually impaired.
Bionic Vision Australia (BVA), a government-funded science consortium, said it had surgically installed an "early prototype" robotic eye in a woman with hereditary sight loss caused by degenerative retinitis pigmentosa.
Described as a "pre-bionic eye", the tiny device is attached to Dianne Ashworth's retina and contains 24 electrodes which send electrical impulses to stimulate her eye's nerve cells.
Researchers switched on the device in their laboratory last month after Ashworth had fully recovered from surgery and she said it was an incredible experience.
"I didn't know what to expect, but all of a sudden, I could see a little flash -- it was amazing," she said in a statement.
"Every time there was stimulation there was a different shape that appeared in front of my eye.
Penny Allen, the surgeon who implanted the device, described it as a "world first".
SCHOOL STUDENT CHIPPING PLAN
August 31, 2012 Parents protest radio monitoring of their children. GOOD!
A rebellion is developing in Texas against a plan by a school district in San Antonio that would monitor the exact location and activities of all students at all times through RFID chips they are being ordered to wear.
RFID tracking is dehumanizing, since it can “monitor how long a student or teacher spends in a bathroom stall.
Katie Deolloz, a member of Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering, told WND that parents and students from San Antonio’s Northside Independent School District confronted the school board, stating their concerns about privacy and other issues “clearly and passionately.”
^ This seems to be at a growing number of schools around the country - no, not nearly at every school, but it seems like it's at least being done on certain testing grounds, it seems.
I was in SW Louisiana a couple of weeks ago and was in a local library. Met a fellow Christian there, and she told me how a local elementary school was doing just that, and Christian parents were outraged over this. It was refreshing to talk to a fellow Christian who's watching end times prophecies, to say the least!
Anyhow, Jesus Christ says to WATCH in these last days - it's saddening to see the modern-day church act like everything's getting gooder-and-gooder. The end times prophecies are slowly starting to unfold now - and we ain't seen nothin' yet!
Invisible Government runningUSA
Invisible Government running USA with NO allegiance to the people (sheepl).
An invisible government that is incredibly Evil in intent is - and has been - in control of the U.S. government.
They virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.
They control both parties.
It operates under cover of a self-created screen and seizes our legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers
and every agency created for the public protection. As a result, we have come to be one of the worst ruled,
one of the most completely controlled governments in the civilized world, no longer a government by the
vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.
666 * Sweden Goes Cashless
September 8, 2012 Sweden is heading toward a completely cashless society.
Bills and coins represent only 3% of Sweden economy, compared to 9% in the eurozone and 7% in the U.S.
A move towards a cashless society is a move towards total tyranny.
Sweden is a NWO test tube. (So is Greece.)
Many things were tested in Sweden first before being pushed further afield.
Of course it is always promoted as ''progress''. Sweden is one of the most controlled nanny states in Europe, government has its nose in everybodys business.
People without a card will be looked down upon.
Cash is a low class currency. It will become the in thing to have the RFID chip implanted by those that are modern.
Watch the celebrities start pushing the propaganda as a status symbol.
Sweden goes cashless, the world may soon follow
STOCKHOLM - There are many, many things to dislike about analog money. Cash and coins are unwieldy, heavy, dirty.
They leave no automatic record of the financial transactions that are made with them.
In Sweden, cash is scarce and becoming scarcer.
Even houses of worship are becoming increasingly friendly to cash-free transactions, digital tithes!
Sweden leads move to cashless mobile economy
Sweden is moving towards a cashless economy with card transactions instead of cash.
Robberies are down and bank processes are more efficient.
But not everyone is happy with the change.
Buses no longer accept cash after a series of robberies.
Now, in order to get on the bus, you can use a prepaid ticket or cell phone text message.
Card payments are now the norm
Credit and debit cards dominate payment in Sweden and in most of the developed world.
In Iceland and the US, 93% of retail transactions were non-cash. In Sweden it is 97%.
Some businesses have stopped accepting cash, preferring electronic only methods.
Other businesses have not fully embraced the credit and debit revolution, preferring only to use cash.
U.S. GOVERNMENT KEEN ON TRACKING CITIZENS
(PCWORLD) Evidence continues to mount that the U.S. government is keen on tracking its citizens.
The FBI has started rolling out its $1 billion biometric Next Generation Identification (NGI) system, a nationwide database of mug shots, iris scans, DNA samples, voice recordings, palm prints, and other biometrics collected from more than 100 million Americans and intended to help identify and catch criminals.
The FBI has been piloting the program with several states and by the time it’s fully deployed in 2014 will have at its fingertips a facial recognition database that includes at least 12 million photos of people’s faces.
The Underground World of Human Cyborgs
There is a growing subculture of do-it-yourself cyborgs who want to push the limits of human potential by implanting technology into their bodies, expanding their senses and ability to interact with the world.
While writing an article on a group of biohackers in Pittsburgh, writer Ben Popper from the technology website theverge.com became one himself.
He joined us this week to share his story and demonstrate the wafer sized magnet he had implanted in his ring finger, which he describes as the "training wheels" of biohacking.
Most biohackers, like the ones Mr. Popper met, operate underground and away from medical regulation.Rare earth metals are implanted with scalpels in tattoo parlors instead of hospitals, and without anesthesia. Once implanted, the biohackers can sense electromagnetic fields, giving them a 6th sense to feel the world around them. His wife has a simpler version of this implant, which allows the two of them to feel the sensation of someone shaking her hand while separated by continents.
But the practical implications of biohacking go beyond feeling electromagnetic fields. Prof. Kevin Warwick from the University of Reading in the U.K. has been researching cybernetics for years. He himself has cybernetics implanted in his arm, which give him the ability to manipulate a robotic hand to move as his human hand moves.
Warwick's research could have huge implications for the disabled, potentially providing amputees and people without use of their limbs full range of motion.
Outside of the research of scientists like Warwick, biohacking remains an unregulated and fringe field of study. However, Mr. Popper believes that implanted technology is going to be mainstream sooner than we all may think, which is why biohackers like the ones he met in Pittsburgh want to have a little fun with it before it's highly regulated and dominated by large companies.
I don't know - is it just me, or do people with tatoos seem to be much more common nowdays compared to the 80's? Tatoos weren't exactly condemned either in the 80's, but in our present day(at least compared to then), it seems like even the average parent has one(among many others). Back then, for a parent to have an ounce of one would be VERY frowned on.
