Data-Thieving Drones

And you thought only the NSA was snooping at your window. Forget, for the moment, the

drone /UAV aspect of this story. Consider that the technology for hacking your Wi-Fi network exists in great abundance, and data-thieves everywhere would love to get a peek at your network data streams. Imagine a world where the guy a few booths over inside your favorite coffee hangout is a

MH370 - You Knew All Along, Right?

When the news came out about MH370 going off radar, it was assumed by most, rightly, that it had crashed. When a plane disappears and doesn’t arrive within hours of its due time, it only makes sense that it has gone down somewhere.

But these thoughts and fears were heavy at a point EARLY ON. Think back to other emerging news story of import. How many of them changed significantly

US to Give Up Control of the Internet

Or, will give up what control it has left.

Have you Heard of WIPP?

I’ve been retweeting POTRBlog’s work on WIPP for over a month. Why? Because he’s doing a fantastic job and I can’t! I will post his most recent article in its entirety. All credit for work done is due to him.

From Today, March 13, 2014 at POTRBlog.

It was (and still is) mathematically and physically impossible for the exhaust air

Ukraine is Putin's Target

I warned of this HERE.

A recent New York Times linkĀ on Drudge Report mentions 3 separate buildups of Russian troops and armor along the common border with Ukraine. I would suppose the Ukrainians were previously privately concerned that this might develop, but they are now openly concerned. Like most NYT articles, it is long on talk, and short on money lines, but this one does have some cache.

Until Thursday,
