Dr. Margot Krasojevic's futuristic offshore floating Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison concept would produce energy for homes on the mainland.
According to Dr. Krasojevic, this system would produce 3.2 megawatts, or enough to provide roughly 2,000 homes with electricity and keep the prison self-sufficient in power, too. The electricity produced is transferred to the mainland via underwater cables.
Many gamers and game journalists had taken to Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, and a host of gaming forums to voice their complaints about the direction Microsoft was planning to take with its new console.
The angry mob, and negative comparisons with Sony's PlayStation 4 (which not only sports more sophisticated tech but is priced US$100 cheaper than the Xbox One), caused panic within Microsoft's gaming division.
Clearly, this a forerunner to global governance institution who are today trying restrict individual rights in the name of saving the Earth while driving the masses into a global collective ruled by secretive societies of elite members.
The Fabian creed written in 1887 states:
The society accordingly works for the extinction of private property in Land and of the consequent individual appropriation, in the form of Rent, of the price paid for permission to use the earth, as well as for the advantages of superior soils and sites.The Society, further, works for the transfer to the community of the administration of such industrial Capital as can conveniently be managed socially. For, owing to the monopoly of the means of production in the past, industrial inventions and the transformation of surplus income into Capital have mainly enriched the proprietary class, the worker being now dependent on that class for leave to earn a living.
Could the success of online currencies spell the demise of brick-and-mortar stores? The founder of Aussie online electronics retailer Millennius certainly believes so.
"We believe crypto-currency as a store of wealth has huge potential, as Bitcoin is essentially cash on steroids," he said.
"It allows us to tap into markets where we can't with PayPal or [we can't] set up other gateways. It's a great opportunity… As there is no risk of charge-backs, customers paying with accepted crypto-currencies (Bitcoins and Litecoins) can receive their product regardless of whether they are in North Korea or Iran."
With Bitcoin's success, it will only further speed up the demise of brick-and-mortar shops. Transaction fees suffered from credit card purchases will just be another point of attrition (in addition to floor staff, rent, utilities, etc.) that eats into their already narrow margins.
Governor Rick Perry just signed a bill making Texas the first state to require law enforcement to obtain a warrant for email searches. The bill, however, does not and cannot prevent the federal government from snooping on online communications.
Texas State Representative Jonathan Stickland, the man who authored the bill, said he has already been in discussion with state representatives from other jurisdictions outside of Texas.
VIDEO: http://youtu.be/IxcqNfCHWiU In an interview on Tuesday with RT, Stickland said he has already been in discussion with state representatives from there other jurisdictions outside of Texas.
The only way they could have made it better is have it apply to federal law enforcement too. I'd love to see states serving arrest warrants on NSA and FBI agents for warrantless searches. And in Texas, they should make it a death penalty offense. (Texans' love the death penalty.) Then we'll see how quick federal bureaucrats are to seize Texans' emails.
I explain how I learned from A History of God by Karen Armstrong that the evidence indicates that the Jewish concept of monotheism evolved from the syncretis...
Yes, the Bible was edited and monotheism evolved from Cananite paganism. Knowing this can liberate you from Chirstian cultism, but it should not mean you stop seeking meaning found in that religous tradition. Why did Jesus say, "You must hate your father and mother?" He was saying you must break free from ALL false authority, and worship the Divine in spirit and truth." The Bible need not be litterally true for Jesus message is true. Always remember: Faith is real, even if most people's object of faith is false.

Elysium, a new movie starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, depicts what many futurists have long predicted is mankind’s ultimate destiny – the division of the human race into two new class systems ...
The trailer for the movie, set to be released on August 9 in the US, begins by depicting an army of robot drones in control of policing that shake down and beat citizens for trivial “violations”. The year is 2154. When Damon’s character expresses anger at his treatment, he is offered a pill to calm him by a robotic bureaucrat. Any form of dissent is treated as “abusive”.
The next steps will be critical for humanity. As such, Hudes argues, it is crucial that the people of the world find out about the lawlessness, corruption, and thievery that are going on at the highest levels — and put a stop to it once and for all. The consequences of inaction would be disastrous.
Bitcoin is the answer, don't end the fed, go around it.
The new policies, as outlined by Mattrick, are as follows:
An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.
Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.
In a breakthrough for the field of particle physics, researchers have established new limits on what scientists call "long-range spin-spin interactions" between atomic particles.
This picture depicts the long-range spin-spin interaction (blue wavy lines) in which the spin-sensitive detector on Earth’s surface interacts with geoelectrons (red dots) deep in Earth’s mantle. The arrows on the geoelectrons indicate their spin orientations, opposite that of Earth’s magnetic field lines (white arcs).
When news broke on Thursday that nine major tech companies were apparentlycomplying with — and even helping — the NSA collect and access massive amounts of data, Gawker's Max Read decided to try to turn the situation to his advantage. He opened a Zazzle store called PRISMMerchandise. Max started with the PRISM logo-bearing t-shirt you see above, adding an iPhone case, a coffee mug, and a hoodie by day's end.
Read reports that by Friday he had sold two t-shirts and two coffee mugs. This morning, however, Zazzle has removed his PRISM storefront and merchandise, sending Read an email which explains:
Unfortunately, it appears that your product, PRISM NSA T-Shirt - #Rare PRISM Shirt SPIES, contains content that is in conflict with one or more of our acceptable content guidelines....Design contains an image or text that may infringe on intellectual property rights. We have been contacted by the intellectual property right holder and we will be removing your product from Zazzle’s Marketplace due to infringement claims"
What? Infringement claims? What is the NSA a private company now? This is beyond absurd!!!
So you’re thinking about using digital currency Bitcoin as part of your business? The virtual currency founded in 2009 is still too new to benefit most startups, but it is popular enough to attract attention from regulators.
It hardly gets more Orwellian than this. New technology would allow cable companies to peer directly into television watchers' homes and monitor viewing habits and reactions to product advertisements.
They already have this in most newer comcast cable boxes. They use it for the upgraded home security systems where you can view each room that has a cable box from your work computer or cell phone. Cover your box or at least the camera lens if you want privacy. Or better yet demand a disabled version if you do not have a need for security.
You may not like paying taxes, but taxes fund the government and are necessary. Still, government waste is like lemon juice in a paper cut. I’m no judge of what’s wasteful, but the idea that the IR...
Yes, the IRS goes boldly where no man has gone before. And like a space tourist, the IRS wrote a check to do it. Some headlines suggest the price tag was $4 million. Actually, the IRS studio itself cost around $4 million but the Trekkie movie was around $60,000.
Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground domestic terrorist who was involved in the 1970 bombing of the New York City Police Department headquarters, the 1971 bombing of the United States Capitol building, and the 1972 bombing of the Pentagon, has declared Obama to be a war criminal.
What is going on here? Remember, Obama started his political career in Ayres' living room. Is Bill Ayres just playing his role in their game? I believe Van Jones is down on Obama right now too. Are they are all working together to get to their ends by whatever means it takes, though fraud and deception? or do we assume Arres and Van Jones are the honest ones and it is only Obama who is the fraud? Did the straping young Marxist name Berry play these guys for a fool just so he could grap power, or did the office corrpt him? What if Obama has been working for the CIA from day one... if that were the case, then all this actually makes sense.
Q. So far are things going the way you thought they would regarding a public debate?
A. Initially I was very encouraged. Unfortunately, the mainstream media now seems far more interested in what I said when I was 17 or what my girlfriend looks like rather than, say, the largest program of suspicionless surveillance in human history.
Q. Is encrypting my email any good at defeating the NSA survelielance? Id my data protected by standard encryption?
A. Encryption works. Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few things that you can rely on. Unfortunately, endpoint security is so terrifically weak that NSA can frequently find ways around it.
