Mark A. Milley,  “in charge” of the response to the protests.   He declared: “We’re going to do something that people haven’t seen before.”The real Looters are the giant corporations that seized ALL the COVID-19 stimulus money. The real criminals are on Wall Street and in the White House. There is lots of money for police overtime and sending in the National Guard.

Facedrive Health Expands Reach of Reliable Bluetooth Communications via Wearables for Global Digital Exposure…

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 Facedrive Health Expands Reach of Reliable Bluetooth Communications via Wearables for Global Digital Exposure Notification TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– Facedrive Inc. (“ Facedrive ”) (TSXV:FD) (OTCQX:FDVRF), is pleased to announce that Facedrive Health, its contact tracing and health services subsidiary and developer of TraceSCAN, is contributing to Herald, an open source project developed by VMware. Herald is a technology stack that enables reliable Bluetooth communications for digital exposure notification. With this commitment, Facedrive Health plans to integrate Herald into TraceSCAN’s current and future generation wearables. Joining the community of developers to help build, enhance, and evolve this open source project is part of Facedrive’s social responsibility as countries look to open their borders and adopt a global interoperability standard for COVID-19 digital exposure notifications. To further expedite the reach and interoperability of digital exposure notification through wearables, Herald is sharing its codebase—including Facedrive’s contributions—with Linux Foundation Public Health (LFPH.io). LFPH is a non-profit global community that builds, secures, and sustains open source software to help public health authorities (PHAs) around the world combat COVID-19 and future epidemics. As more projects are contributed, LFPH will expand its scope into software support for all phases of PHA’s testing, tracing, and isolation activities. Current technology contributors to the Herald Protocol include VMware, The Australian Government and Facedrive Health. The Herald Protocol has been adopted by the Australian Government while additional local, regional, and national government organizations are currently evaluating Herald for use in their exposure notification apps. Herald is an open source Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) based protocol developed for the reliable exchange of information between a range of mobile phones. Herald is being developed with the goal of providing more reliable Bluetooth Proximity Detection to improve digital exposure notification applications worldwide in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Herald is a VMware-originated open source project and represents part of VMware’s growing investment in and contributions to open source communities. Herald delivers a set of features which enhance exposure notification at the inter-device communications level. Important features include 100% detection of phones in the foreground and background across iOS and Android devices, more frequent distance estimations enabling more accurate data capture and risk measurement over time. Perhaps most importantly, by providing a common packet header Herald allows for international interoperability amongst all contact tracing applications, whether designed for centralised or decentralised contact matching and risk scoring. TraceSCAN, Facedrive Health’s innovative exposure notification and smart wearables solution, is powered by cutting-edge Bluetooth technology which enables the device to work as an independent wearable product or in conjunction with mobile-only solutions. Given Facedrive Health’s expertise in the development of wearable exposure notification devices, joining the Herald community and contributing to its development was a natural fit. Facedrive Health’s contributions will focus on the development of code to enable wearable exposure notification devices, such as Facedrive Health’s TraceSCAN, to communicate with all other devices that implement the Herald Protocol, thereby giving TraceSCAN a 100% device compatibility potential. Adoption of Herald will allow TraceSCAN wearables to operate across multiple exposure notification platforms globally, whilst accelerating our expansion in exposure notification internationally. The community development will also include defining a technical standard on international interoperability for Bluetooth based device communications related to contact tracing. Facedrive developed TraceSCAN wearables health tech to increase the reach of exposure notification into personal and workplace environments where use of smartphones is not possible or not allowed. TraceSCAN also addresses specific at-risk demographic segments such as senior citizens, children, and low-income individuals who may not have access to smartphones or not be familiar with their use. TraceSCAN is also well-suited for other unique workplace environments such as the travel industry (for example, cruise and airlines); construction sites; healthcare facilities and senior care homes; schools, colleges and universities; farms and gyms. Facedrive believes that Herald has the potential of greatly increasing the reach of exposure notification applications and improving their accuracy. “The Herald Protocol is an innovative and necessary foundational technology that can significantly improve the communications layer of the exposure notification application stack. Based on our experience in building TraceSCAN, we are pleased to be involved in the community development of Herald, alongside VMware and other partners,” said Sayan Navaratnam, Chairman and CEO of Facedrive. “Herald has the potential to significantly improve the range and accuracy of COVID-19 related applications and to enable universal interoperability across technology silos in Canada and internationally. This type of global connectivity is critical because the larger an exposure notification network becomes, the more effective it is at detecting and halting the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases,” added Navaratnam.

Federal murder probe opened for Capitol Police officer who died in riots

first_imgwellesenterprises/iStockBy JACK DATE, MARK OSBORNE and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington has opened a federal murder investigation into the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died Thursday night after suffering injuries in the violent siege on Capitol Hill, three law enforcement sources confirmed to ABC News.The investigation is being conducted jointly between the FBI and the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, with cooperation from U.S. Capitol Police.Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said in a statement that the Department of Justice “will spare no resources in investigating and holding accountable those responsible.”Sicknick responded to Wednesday’s riots and “was injured while physically engaging with protesters,” Capitol Police said in a statement. “He returned to his division office and collapsed.”He was taken to a hospital, where he died at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, police said.According to sources familiar with the matter, authorities believe Sicknick’s death was driven by a medical condition. They’re also investigating reports that he was attacked with a fire extinguisher or another item at the Capitol, sources said. So far, reports of an attack haven’t been confirmed, and authorities are hoping to locate video or other imagery from the scene.Sicknick, a 42-year-old military veteran, had worked for the Capitol Police for 12 years, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said.“After a day of fighting for his life,” Sicknick’s brother said in a statement, “he passed away a hero. I would like to thank all of his brothers and sisters in law enforcement for the incredible compassion and support they have shown my family.”Sicknick’s death is the fifth connected to Wednesday’s riots, which saw swarms of pro-Donald Trump rioters overwhelm police barricades, surge into the Capitol and force lawmakers to flee or hide.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has ordered all flags at the Capitol to be flown at half-staff in Sicknick’s honor.“On behalf of the House of Representatives, I send our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Officer Brian Sicknick, who died after defending the Capitol complex and protecting those who serve and work here,” Pelosi said in a statement Friday.“The perpetrators of Officer Sicknick’s death must be brought to justice,” Pelosi added. “The violent and deadly act of insurrection targeting the Capitol, our temple of American Democracy, and its workers was a profound tragedy and stain on our nation’s history. But because of the heroism of our first responders and the determination of the Congress, we were not, and we will never be, diverted from our duty to the Constitution and the American people.”“The sacrifice of Officer Sicknick reminds us of our obligation to those we serve: to protect our country from all threats foreign and domestic,” Pelosi said. “May it be a comfort to Officer Sicknick’s family that so many mourn with and pray for them at this sad time.”Virginia Democratic Rep. Don Beyer is calling for Sicknick to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.“He made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting those trapped in the Capitol amid a violent assault on our democracy itself,” Beyer said in a statement Friday. “Like others before him who died in defense of the people’s representatives, he deserves to lie in state.”The White House’s first comments on Sicknick’s death came Friday morning in a statement from deputy press secretary Judd Deere.“Anytime a member of law enforcement dies in the line of duty it is a solemn reminder to us all that they run toward danger to maintain peace,” Deere said. “The President and the entire Administration extend our prayers to Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s family as we all grieve the loss of this American hero.”Vice President Mike Pence tweeted Friday afternoon, “Officer Sicknick is an American hero who gave his life defending our Capitol and this Nation will never forget or fail to honor the service and sacrifice of Officer Brian Sicknick.”President-elect Joe Biden on Friday offered his sympathy to Sicknick’s family, adding, “The people responsible should be held accountable. And they will be.”In 1997, Sicknick, a New Jersey native, enlisted in New Jersey’s Air National Guard.Sicknick deployed to Saudi Arabia in 1999 and to Kyrgyzstan in 2003, said Lt. Col. Barbara Brown, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey National Guard. He was honorably discharged in 2003.“Officer Sicknick gave his life protecting the United States Capitol, and by extension, our very democracy, from violent insurrection,” Murphy said in a statement. “His needless murder at the hands of a mob bent on overthrowing the Constitution he had dedicated his life to upholding is shocking. It is my fervent hope that the rioters whose actions directly contributed to his death are quickly identified and brought to justice.”Gov. Northam added, “Officer Sicknick was killed while doing his job — defending those trapped in the Capitol building amid a violent attack on our democracy. His death is a tragedy, and those responsible must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association President Larry Cosme called Sicknick an “American hero.”“Officer Sicknick and his brothers and sisters in the U.S. Capitol Police were the thin blue line protecting not just our elected officials from violent insurrectionists, but the very heart of American democracy,” Cosme said in a statement. “Political violence in this country in any form is deplorable. We support a full and vigorous investigation and prosecution of all involved in carrying out this heinous assault.”Cosme added, “We urge the Justice Department to pursue the maximum penalties for the death of this officer and all of the assaults on law enforcement that occurred on that day for anyone responsible for orchestrating, participating, and carrying out Wednesday’s invasion of the U.S. Capitol.”Other lawmakers reacted overnight to Sicknick’s death, including Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, who tweeted: “On behalf of the residents of the District of Columbia, our thoughts & prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of United States Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick. May he Rest In Peace, and we work tirelessly to honor his service to the Congress and our nation.”Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who has been criticized for his attempt to overturn 2020 election results, wrote on Twitter: “Devastating. Heidi and I are lifting up in prayer the family of the U.S. Capitol Police officer who tragically lost his life keeping us safe. He was a true hero. Yesterday’s terrorist attack was a horrific assault on our democracy. Every terrorist needs to be fully prosecuted.”Rep. Tim Ryan, R-Ohio, said his heart is broken over the loss and added that Sicknick’s death should serve as a “reminder of the bravery of the law enforcement who protect us every day.”Rep. John Curtis, R-Utah, wrote: “I am devastated to hear about the passing of U.S. @CapitolPolice Officer Brian Sicknick and extend my deepest sympathy to his family. My staff and I cannot say enough to express our appreciation for his sacrifice to keep us safe.”Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., tweeted: “Devastating news. Please join me in praying for our fallen Capitol Police officer’s family during this heartbreaking time.”Among those who died in the siege, three people suffered medical emergencies, while a 35-year-old woman, Ashli Babbitt, was shot and killed by Capitol Police while trying to enter a broken window into the House Chamber.Law enforcement said more than 50 Capitol Police and Metropolitan police officers suffered injuries in the rioting and several officers have been hospitalized “with serious injuries.”“These individuals actively attacked United States Capitol Police Officers and other uniformed law enforcement officers with metal pipes, discharged chemical irritants, and took up other weapons against our officers,” Capitol Police said.Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund resigned on Thursday afternoon in the wake of the riots. Pelosi was among those calling for his resignation.Capitol Police Union Chairman Gus Papathanasiou said in a statement Thursday that officers were “frustrated and demoralized by the lack of leadership.”“This never should have happened,” Papathanasiou said.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Airbnb makes a step closer to lettings market

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Airbnb makes a step closer to lettings market previous nextHousing MarketAirbnb makes a step closer to lettings marketLatest news from the home sharing website indicates a desire to attract UK landlords and take a slice of the short term lets market, and maybe more..Nigel Lewis9th June 20150506 Views The US-based home sharing website Airbnb, which enables its users to search through a database of over a million homes worldwide and 25,000 in the UK, has this week launched a professional property management software suite called Guesty aimed at professional landlords.At first glance the move would seem to contain little to worry the UK’s letting agents. Airbnb markets itself as a way for holiday makers to find affordable accommodation and avoid paying the high night rates that hotels and B&Bs charge. Described as part of the ‘sharing’ economy and using a model that’s compared with taxi service Uber, Airbnb recently claimed to have so far generated over half a billion pounds of economic activity in the UK.But what Airbnb is really muscling in on – in a way that might alarm some lettings agents – is the peripheries of the private lettings market as the service becomes a new and low-cost alternative income stream for landlords.The Guardian newspaper recently analysed more than 13,000 Airbnb listings in London – by far its largest UK market – and discovered that 6,600 of them offered an entire home or flat, rather than a spare room – a clear sign that its user base is increasingly professionalising.Airbnb, during research carried out within the UK last year, revealed that the typical Airbnb host occasionally rents out the property in which he or she actually lives. Some 80 percent of Airbnb hosts rent out only the home they live in and the typical host earns £2,822 per year by renting 33 nights a year.But the site wants to appeal to much more than cash-strapped holiday makers looking to dodge the expense of a hotel stay. It has already set its sights on the corporate let market with a dedicated page on its website, and in London’s frenetic and expensive short lets market Airbnb is increasingly seen as a more affordable option.The website also gained regulatory backing recently. This May a set of 1970s regulations that prevented homeowners in London from renting out their homes for more than 90 days without planning permission were axed, paving the way for sites like Airbnb to offer six-month rentals and challenge the traditional lettings model.lettings market airbnb June 9, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

‘Tech makes it easier for rogue tenants to fake referencing documents’

first_imgHome » News » ‘Tech makes it easier for rogue tenants to fake referencing documents’ previous nextRegulation & Law‘Tech makes it easier for rogue tenants to fake referencing documents’Claim is made by eviction specialist Paul Shamplina ahead of TV programme tomorrow night on Channel 5.Nigel Lewis18th April 20180944 Views The march of tech in the world of lettings has made it easier for rogue tenants to falsify documents and pass referencing when they shouldn’t be.That’s the claim made by eviction specialist Paul Shamplina (pictured, below) today ahead of tomorrow night’s Bad Tenants, Rogue Landlords TV program on Channel5, which features the worrying case of one landlord, Paul Bloom.He and his letting agent fell victim to fake tenant referencing documents when an apparently reasonable tenant moved in to his apartment in a quiet part of Hampstead in North London.What was supposed to be a company let and had been successfully referenced as such turned out to be nothing of the sort and, after paying the first month’s rent, the tenant failed to pay any further money to the letting agent.“Professional rogues are so aware of how to get around every measure put in place to protect landlords,” says Paul Bloom.Shamplina’s company Landlord Action then had to help Mr Bloom evict the later noisy and violent tenant, as the TV programme tomorrow shows in graphic detail.Technology“With such rapid advances in technology, falsifying documents via apps on smartphones is easier than ever,” says Shamplina, who says in this case and several others he’s dealt with even the tenant’s passport documentation was fake.“Company lets are not unusual in London and many landlords like the idea of a professional organisation taking on the tenancy agreement.“But the same risks as renting to an individual tenant apply. Unless the company wishing to take on the tenancy is a recognised name, those responsible for arranging the referencing should request company registration details, ensure the company is still trading and request details of the employees who will be occupying the property.”Paul Shamplina referencing Bad Tenants rogue landlords Channel 5 eviction April 18, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Essay Crisis writer reveals identity exclusively to Cherwell

first_imgThe author of Oxford’s renowned procrastination tool, essaycrisis.tumblr.com, has exclusively come forward to Cherwell to announce her true identity having remained a mystery to Oxford students for years.The brains behind “I’m Having An Essay Crisis” revealed herself to be Madeleine Foote, a history student at St Peter’s.She told Cherwell, “I love when I see people checking Essay Crisis in the library and laughing, empathizing with situations that we believe are unique to us but are common to most Oxford students.“I like doing Essay Crisis because nothing could be better than procrastinating by trying to think of a way to make people see the humour in their everyday life and laughing at themselves.”‘Essay Crisis’, which has over 2,000 Tumblr followers and 1,577 likes on Facebook, receives up to 10,000 individual hits a day, predominantly from struggling Oxford students. However, Foote adds that, “After Oxford, my biggest following is in Cambridge. Tabs can’t win, they have to look to us for their laughs.”The momentous news has understandably shocked students across the University.Those close to Madeleine were taken aback. Exeter Student Tim Glover said, “I am absolutely astonished that my friend Madeleine is behind the world-famous blog; it is unbelievable. In fact, I literally don’t believe it. Madeleine is definitely not funny enough to be Essay Crisis. Also Essay Crisis swears a lot and references things like sex and alcohol, which I’m certain someone like Madeleine would never say or talk about. I call hoax.”Brasenose student Jonathan Goddard added, “She’s well known for her omni-competence, but I always assumed that the one thing she lacked was comic ability. Now, it looks like she has that in spades too!”Shirley Halse said, “It’s an incredible revelation to finally know the face behind one of the best loved and comical of Oxford establishments.“On a personal level, it is an honour to share 3 mutual Facebook friends with such an institution.”Thomas Cranshaw, a medic, agreed, commenting, “I am overjoyed to hear such fantastic news. It’s been a tough couple of years for me, always wondering, but never knowing. As someone who spends upwards of 6 hours a day refreshing the site it’s a real relief to finally be in the know.”However, not all were impressed by the news. One Classics student said, “Who is this girl? Why do we care? I never even thought the website was that funny. To be honest it made me embarrassed to share the same problems which lame gifs were being made about.”last_img read more
