In Peru, vultures equipped with Go Pros are creating a virtual map of illegal dumping sites from which runoff destroys land and water purity and spreads diseases.  See the below links to video and article on the efforts..............(the video is subtitled for English speakers)

Durante generaciones nosotros, los Gallinazos, armados con nuestros sentidos hemos peleado en silencio una lucha contra la basura pero ahora nos está ganando. Queremos ayudar a los humanos y por eso hemos creado un movimiento que los ayudará a detectar focos de basura para que actúen y se encarguen de erradicarlos. Únanse a nosotros. ¡Gallinazo Avisa, tú actúas!

For generations we vultures, armed with our senses, have fought in silence. We’ve waged a battle against garbage, but now we’re losing that battle. We want to help humans, so we’ve launched a movement to help you detect piles of garbage so that you can take action to eliminate them. Join us in this fight. Vultures Warn, you take action!

If the email addresses and phone numbers are their government email addresses and phone numbers then that is all publicly accessible information already so what is this hacker doing that is so dispicable. Additionally those in the FBI and DHS dont seem to have a problem with collecting and storing our personnel data so what's the problem.

Spinning Cardioid

A cardioid is a plane curve traced by a point on the perimeter of a circle that is rolling around a fixed circle of the same radius.
It is therefore a type of limaçon and can also be defined as an epicycloid having a single cusp. It is also a type of sinusoidal spiral, and an inverse curve of the parabola with the focus as the center of inversion.

The name cardioid, which means heart-shaped, was introduced by Giovanni Salvemini called Castiglione (or even Johann Castillon) in an article written in Latin and published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, in 1741. However, in the study of that curve, he had been preceded already, in 1708, by Philippe de La Hire, who had determined its length.

The singer/songwriter of "What You Won't Do for Love" on his debut album in 1978, who writes for other major acts as well, has done a credible interview for his latest album "Cool Uncle". Those of us who were on the Muscle Shoals music scene were well aware of his talents then and now.  Bobby's music fuses two distinct audiences of R&B and big band orchestra music styles and the two crowds find themselves at home with each other.  Enjoy the interview and you'll get a taste of what it takes to tour, too.

He gave up a college scholarship to learn to read music and play on tour with Lionel Hampton's band.  Also appearing in many session recordings with other well known session players, such as Duane Allman, who really never could get enough of his playing.  His life was tragically cut short in a random act of violence when stabbed on the front stops of his apartment house in 1971.............

LICENSE PLATE READERS A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD FOR NY VILLAGE

It seems to me that the flurry of alarms going off for the new system will die down after a while, once the glut of expired and suspended licenses are rounded up and those vehicles impounded and the stolen cars returned to their original owners..........................those stops on stolen cars have uncovered felony warrants for drivers, though and that's nothing to sneeze at..........................

I know this is based on an earlier article in Dubai, however, I'm interested to see if anyone is familiar with this design concept?  Has it continued to show promise?  Is it likely to be installed and tested for real world use anytime soon?
The Windstalk concept proposes an array of poles containing piezoelectric ceramic discs that generate power from the movement of the poles swaying in the wind.

Yes, it's just a commencement speech.  But, it's also a good speech about truly being in your own mind's control, and more.
