read this again:  THE BIG PICTURE - Quentin Hardy on NYTimes.com Bits blog, "Policy: How Urban Anonymity Disappears When All Data is Tracked ": "On Friday, a company called LocoMobi announced it had acquired Nautical Technologies, the license plate recognition technology of a Canadian company called Apps Network Appliances. This gear sits at the entrance of a parking lot, identifying the license plates of incoming cars. That data goes to the cloud computing infrastructure of Amazon Web Services. When a car pulls out of the lot, the camera takes another picture, computers calculate how long a car was parked, and a charge is applied. The company's co-founder foresees tying the system to a car's navigation system, enabling drivers to find and reserve nearby parking spots without wasteful driving. 
 
Yep

Alt text: I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.

Yea! This is my group at last! Yea!  A few chemicals and it is al a GIF! This thought for today is just wonderful. 2 days ago I was finishing breakfast and 50 yards from my booth in the restaurant a woman was hit by lightening. For me it was the most amazing surround of the brightest clearest extended sensation of white wings surround sound flash I have ever experienced. Then the air was drenched in fine gray particulate matter for an hour!  I was held in the metallic after draft of the strike though I was audience. Visually it was like the expansive wings of the Arch Angel Michael, if you can imagine anything, try this image. I was surrounded in this white light! The rest of that day and the next I was deeply drained and sort of tired feeling.

Thank you for posting. what can I do about Bayer? This is yet again a big corporate push to Injure out Globe and do mass killings of all inhabitants .... Without bees!  Pests are Bayer and its chemical criminals. How will the executives at the corporations who are poisoning our planet going to get food, including almonds, fruits berries, flowers and honey?
And it says a ban on its bee-killing pesticides is "disproportionate"?!?

Diane, are you kidding?
 

Dear Ms. Bartlett:

 

Thank you for your letter expressing your support for reforming National Security Agency (NSA) programs.  I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue, and welcome the opportunity to respond.

 

First, please be assured that the NSA does not conduct mass surveillance on U.S. citizens.  Its mission is to collect foreign signals intelligence to detect foreign national security threats.  For your convenience, a summary of the NSA's authorities under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) is available on the agency's website or at http://tinyurl.com/NSA-FISA.

 

Please know that I support measures to improve oversight of U.S. intelligence programs and to make them more transparent to the public.  On October 31, 2013, I introduced the "FISA Improvements Act" (S. 1631), which would require court review when the NSA call records database is queried, and mandate a series of limitations on how the records can be obtained, stored, and used.  It would also authorize the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to designate outside "amici curiae," or "friends of the court," to provide independent perspectives and assist the Court in reviewing matters that present a novel or significant interpretation of law. 

 

Additionally, on November 5, 2013, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which I chair, approved the "Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014" (S. 1681), which would strengthen existing protections that allow whistleblowers in the Intelligence Community to bring their concerns directly to the attention of Congress, inspectors general, and Intelligence Community leaders.  The bill would also require the Department of Justice to inform the Congressional intelligence committees of all Office of Legal Counsel opinions regarding intelligence activities, and extend the charter of the Public Interest Declassification Board, which promotes public access to a thorough record of U.S. national security decisions and activities.

 

Finally, as Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, I have called for a full review of all U.S. intelligence programs.  For your convenience, I have included an opinion piece I authored in the San Francisco Chronicle on November 2, 2013 that further outlines proposals that I support. 

 

Again, thank you for writing.  Please know that as Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, I take seriously my responsibility to ensure that national security programs honor the privacy and Fourth Amendment rights of U.S. citizens.  I will certainly keep your concerns in mind as Congress considers legislation to reform NSA programs.  Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.



Sincerely yours,


  Dianne Feinstein
         United States Senator

Further information about my position on issues of concern to California and the nation are available at my website, feinstein.senate.gov.  And please visit my YouTube, Facebook and Twitter for more ways to communicate with me.

REALLY LOUD!  The Trader Joe store on College avenue in Rockridge music is always too loud. I went up to a person wearing the gahuna beads and said that the music is so loud that it makes me angry. He felt afraid of a smart strong woman so went to another boss and his associate. I will call them Bully and Thug. I hope that you care about customers comfort and will send me an apology. Other wise why would I want to ever again give you my business? I am a very nice person. Your store is not customer friendly. By the time those two came up to me I had taken out my ear plugs. I never want to see or talk with any of the three staff. The Music IS Too Loud and I am made to feel as though I did not speak to the right person or in the way those men believe is right. REALLY? Time to post on YELP!
Corporate needs to soften the Loud Music and train staff in Non Violent Communication... Do I need to be a trader joes customer?

There's one in South San Francisco that's always chill.  I have a friend who plays music too loud, and, to avoid making all of my neighbors angry, I told him a story about a dinosaur and an octopus.  Saw right through it but turned down the music.

Do you think with your heart?
This world is now in an epic struggle
 to either come together with love, or
   suffer consequences for lack of love.

this is what the corporate Mogals pay him to do. It is his job to produce deceptive spin...SPIN looks like this. I do not purchase any papers nor do I watch the fear and pain mongering messages on the telly or radio; yet I write to my local legislatures. How did citizens allow this deception to become the norm.

This has been a problem for many many years.  Supposedly honourable 'journalists' know even in unorganized situations people will mug for the camera, so 50 people are made to look like hundreds or thousands.  This is how inconsequential bullshit ideas become 'important'.

The 4th estate pushes the agenda as much as communicates it.

I love LIFE! Life long learning NIF,CERN,EFF, I have a life-long interest of the particle, vibrating quality of life. Since 1989 I have been a student of the Venerable Lobsang Samten. In 1984 Ilsa made a brief study of Tanka painting with Pema Wangal of Dolpa. In 1985 he took her by the hand and introduced her to the monk doctor, Ven. Lobsang Rampgay, who suggested Roerich, Agni Yoga. The Mountain  has a broad base but a singular peak. blog: http://rewiringangel.wordpress.com/
