Students Have Created A “Smart Condom” That Glows A Different Color If You Have An STD

If you are a sexually active man, not in a monogamous relationship with a partner, you should be using condoms every time you have sex.

Smart Meters and Domestic Surveillance
feedproxy.google.com
By Catherine J. FrompovichTalk about copycats! Whoa! Someone did a rather convincing job of that, I’d say. It’s the Internet site “Domestic Surveillance Directorate. Defending Our Nation. Securing The Citizen,” which identifies itself as a “parody” on the NSA (National Security Agency). The parody site does an excellent job, so I encourage readers to study it thoroughly, as it contains too much information to talk about here.

One informed activist in Pennsylvania, Tom McCarey, was interviewed on an Allentown, PA, radio show the morning of April 30, 2015, and categorically laid out what’s going on with SMs. Not only is dirty electricity involved with SMs in Pennsylvania—as elsewhere—but there also are dirty politics going on too.

Tampering with Smart Meters on the Smart Grid

Catherine J. FrompovichActivist PostThere have been a lot of theories about what could happen when Smart Meters (SMs) are tampered with and customers receive “false-reading, tampered-with” utility bills—water, gas, or electric—when hackers access the porous microwave networks that transmit in-the-house information that electric SMs constantly collect, then radio-transmit via microwaves back to utilities home offices. That’s not some “pie-in-the-sky” theory; it’s of great conce [...]
