+ - Department of Homeland Security Wants Nerds for a New 'Cyber Reserve' ->

Submitted by

pigrabbitbear writes "Just three weeks after Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told an audience at the Sea, Air and Space Museum that the U.S. is on the brink of a “cyber Pearl Harbor,” the government has decided it needs to beef up the ranks of its digital defenses. It’s assembling a league of extraordinary computer geeks for what will be known as the “Cyber Reserve.”"

+ - SPAM: Echelon is the Singularity, 1984 is a Reality, and you don't know or care.

phenix writes " explains the whole story.

In 1666, Sir Isaac Newton discovered the laws of physics and motion.
In 1831, Michael Faraday discovered the law of induction.
In 1873, James Maxwell discovered a set of equations which explained the electromagnetic forces.
In 1922, Neils Bohr won the Nobel Prize for foundational contributions to quantum physics.

Three of the four went to Trinity College in London, and all resided in London at one point. Faraday, the only one who did not attend Trinity had his laboratory at Trinity Buoy Wharf.

The statistical significance of the three most pivotal discoveries in physics leading up to this point occurring at nearly the same location is less than 1%. The fact that all three locations included Trinity is not a coincidence, it is a signature.

Between 1920 and 1930 Heisenberg and Einstein would make great strides in quantum and particle physics. Soon after, Theodore Kaluza would unite Einstein and Maxwell's equations with a theory by introducing a fifth dimension. All three were German.

All of the discoveries above were required, and fundamental in the development of quantum mind control.

Quantum charge neural stimulation, can remotely read and write neural firing patterns, through electromagnetic shielding. It does not require you to be stationary, and works all the time. The technology is very similar to TEMPEST 2 , but for your brain [spam URL stripped].

In 1932, Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World.
In 1948, George Orwell wrote write 1984.

These two authors met in one place, at one time, in London; at Eton College in 1917. Their works are both descriptions of a tyrannical government oppressing its people using fear, the media, and mind control.

1984 is a reality today, with the only difference being that you do not know it is going on. World governments are using this mind control to suppress pubic knowledge of technological advances in quantum physics, including the artificial intelligence singularity as well as mind control itself.

There is no explanation for this truth other than a message from the future. It is a warning.

In 1980, 1982, and 1984 Pope John Paul II met with the President of the United States. Orwell retitled his novel three times."

I'm an "on-shore" dev for my company which has hired contractors from India to work on our flagship internal product for literally years now. I can add nothing that hasn't already been sung from the chorus of outsourcing detractors, except the old saying, which I haven't seen posted yet: If you think it's expensive hiring professionals, wait until you hire amateurs.

Programming

+ - Kids in Programming->

Submitted by

nirgle writes "I have been wondering lately if there are any kids interested in programming for its own sake anymore. When I was my nephew's age, computers were still fascinating: There wasn't a laptop on every table, facebook wasn't splattered on every screen, and you couldn't get any question answered in just a couple seconds with Google. When I was 10, I would have done anything for a close programming mentor instead of the 5-foot high stack of books that I had to read cover-to-cover on my own. So I was happy when my nephew started asking about learning to do what "Uncle Jay does." Does the responsibility now shift to us to kindle early fires in computer science, or is programming now just another profession for the educational system to manage?"

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
