Good News Friday // Silent Rooms // Connected TVs // Hymns // Ginger //

Another Good News Friday is here.  We need this to counter the onslaught of bad news.  The Japanese have developed cafes and other places where silence is golden.  California is trying to do something about people being incensed by their TVs spying on them.  Attending church makes people happier and healthier.  Set time aside to learn hymns.  Ginger has been found to be more effective than many chemotherapy drugs.

Silent cafes attract solo Japanese in search of peace

RFID Tags //

The predictions made in Katherine's book Spychips are unfortunately coming true.  DHS wants to monitor your bathroom breaks?  Depiste their assertions, tracking does not prevent crime.  Question every time you are asked to be tracked or to show ID.  Why is a patient card no longer sufficient and they feel like they need to track everyone.  Why would a citizen need a photo ID for emergency treatment?  Thanks for the email from Jim.

Requiring ID // Tracking // Lies // Mark of the Beast //

Katherine continues her discussion of the new push to show ID for everything.  Makers of tracking systems admit it is terrifying by they justify it.  Is it because they want the money?  It's not nice to lie - it can have surprising consequences.
