New technology making large vehicles fully autonomous; the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Research Development Engineering Center (TARDEC) & Lockheed Martin demonstrating the ability of the Autonomous Mobility Appliqué System (AMAS) earlier this month at Fort Hood. Giving full autonomy to convoys to operate in urban environments. Testing driverless tactical vehicles able to navigate hazards and obstacles including pedestrians, oncoming traffic, road intersections, traffic circles and stalled and passing vehicles. AMAS also gives drivers an automated option to alert, stop and adjust, or take full control under user supervision. Integrating a multi platform kit of sensors and control systems with Army and Marine tactical vehicles to enable autonomous operation in convoys in urban environments. With the “war on terror” providing a convenient excuse for government agencies to increase their power. An entire industry has arisen from the government’s war on terror, and for both the government sector and the security-industrial complex the terrorist threat is big business. Emphasizing continued high threat levels without being able to openly explain them due to secrecy requirements is one way to keep the security budget untouched. Reporting high threat level from terrorists overseas is a good way to frighten citizens away from their increasing outrage over reports of massive domestic spying by the NSA. We are told that the military and intelligence community can protect us if they are given the tools they need, but it appears they have not done a very good job by their own admission by Clapper in the Senate Intelligence Committee last week. With the TSA & NSA unable to stop a single terroist event. Foreign policies are causing more al-Qaeda groups to arise and take the place of those who have been defeated by US drone and military attacks. Continuing to fight the wrong war in the wrong manner, is it not time to try non-intervention and a strong defense rather than drone strikes and pre-emptive attacks? Even if it is by autonomous drones and convoys, the manufactured Al-Qaeda threat is no reason to sacrifice liberties.
Researchers embedding electrodes in arms and touch sensors in prosthetic hands to stimulate nerves making prosthetics more lively. Computer algorithms converting the signals from the sensors into a form the nerves can detect. Recognizing different objects by their feel, and grasping them appropriately, according to the study detailed online (2/5/14) in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Restoring touch is critical for dexterity in lost limbs; controlling how forcefully to grasp objects, feeling their shape and stiffness making you feel human again. So far this is the first study to report that touch has been restored for a human patient via a prosthetic. With 3D printing making prosthetics all the easier. Many groups are working on smarter bionic limbs; DARPA’s Reliable Neural-Interface Technology (RE-NET) program bridges the gaps among nerves, muscles and the brain, allowing users to move prosthetics with their thoughts alone. This technology requires carefully re-innervating (re-wiring nerves) the residual muscles in a patient’s limb. Technology being a double edged sword is it for the better or for the worse as big corporations are making autonomous robots, convoys and autonomous drones to control populations.
Scientific and medical evidence has shown conclusively that the low frequency pulsed radio and microwave frequencies are causing significant damage to our cells resulting in extreme increases in autism, heart irregularities, brain wave changes, cancer and generational fertility destruction in males but even more significantly in females. The most prominent changes due to WiFi radiation though is with our children and teenagers due to their developing immune systems and thinner skeletal structures. The U.S. Navy has known for decades, since at least 1976, of the significant inherent dangers in using Wifi. Governments and Big Telecom have gotten away with pushing Wifi on all of us, knowing the deep health risks, yet due to the difficult legal connections between invisible radiation, the length of time it takes to get sick from WiFi exposure and the legality escape clause of ‘plausible deniability,’ they have continued to enjoy blanket immunity. Additionally, in Big Business where no one goes to jail and the regulators are in bed with the corporations, they can hide inconvenient truths from the public, free from fear of prosecution. Knowing this France steps forward with The French National Assembly adopting a bill to limit exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated by wireless technologies; including banning Wi-Fi in all childcare facilities for children under the age of 3 with children being the most at risk. The worst EMF exposure by far is cell phones, but also found emmited by cell towers, 4G, electrical power lines, transformers, railway lines, computers, tablets, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, electronic chips, as well as fluorescent lights, microwave ovens, induction hotplates and washing machines. Limiting exposure by not using Wifi for internet connections and not being addicted to your smart phone is a smart choice.
