"PCR test results expire after three days, a vaccine card expires after six months, and antigen test results expire after 6 hours."



Welcome to the future. Something stuck up your nose every three days, or something injected into your arm twice a year.... forever. It's all about choices ;-)

Young Frankensteins: Biometric authentication with electrical muscle stimulation - Jim Nash


University of Chicago researchers have come up with the most improbable (so far) biometric method of authenticating someone’s identity — how fingers react to electrical currents stimulating forearm muscles.


The product, ElectricAuth, requires users to wear a sleeve embedded with electrodes. Electrical signals lasting about a second are sent in different numbers of pulses and at different tempos.


Nodes on their finger record the unique responses. The university researchers are working on a visual recording technique, and a press release announcing the idea shows people wearing augmented reality goggles that have a camera.


The school claims the setup provides 64 million potential interpretations for use in authenticating someone.

Wow, what's encouraging about that is the number of people and effort required to fire that howitzer or whatever. One gets the impression that a lot of warfare is much easier nowadays. Kinda makes you think that if the 'grunts' woke up there would be no problem as there wouldn't be enough people to man the weapons.

It’s ransomware, or maybe a disk wiper, and it’s striking targets in Israel


'Dubbed Apostle, never-before-seen wiper masquerades as ransomware.'

The comments underneath are even more interesting than the article...  :O)
