Canadian Government Installs Microphones and Cameras at Airports To Record Conversations of Travellers Posted on June 18, 2012
Airports and border crossings across Canada are being wired with high-definition cameras and microphones that can eavesdrop on travellers’ conversations, according to the Canada Border Services Agency.
A CBSA statement said that audio-video monitoring and recording is already in place at unidentified CBSA sites at airports and border points of entry as part of an effort to enhance “border integrity, infrastructure and asset security and health and safety.”
Hidden Government Scanners Will Instantly Know Everything About You From 164 Feet Away Jul 10, 2012 9:40 AM
Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away. From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body—agents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you.
The organisers of the Games have been handed unprecedented control over everyday speech
The government has told the courts they may wish to take particular account of anyone using two or more words from what it calls ‘List A’ — ‘Games’; ‘Two Thousand and Twelve’; ‘2012’; ‘twenty twelve’. The judges must also come down hard on a business or charity that takes a word from List A and conjoins it with one or more words from ‘List B’ — ‘Gold’; ‘Silver’; ‘Bronze’; ‘London’; ‘medals’; ‘sponsors’; ‘summer’. Common nouns are now private property.
The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games does not stop there. To cover all eventualities, it warns the unwary that they can create an ‘unwarranted association’ without using forbidden words. They threaten anyone who infringes the exclusive deals of Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Adidas, Dow, Samsung, Visa and the games’ other multi-million-dollar sponsors in however oblique a manner. And not just with the normal damages in the civil courts. The state has granted the police powers under the criminal law to enter ‘land or premises’ and to ‘remove, destroy, conceal or erase any infringing article’.
Trading standards officers in Stoke on Trent told a florist to take down floral Olympic rings. Offending sausage rings vanished from a butcher’s window in Dorset. It is not only rings. The Olympic organising committee warned estate agents in the West Country that they must remove Olympic torches made from old ‘for sale’ signs or face ‘formal legal action’. When the British Sugarcraft Guild asked the authorities if it might run a 2012 cake-decorating competition, it thought it was making a modest request. The Guild was not even going to sell the cakes afterwards. No matter. Only official sponsors could decorate cakes with Olympic symbols, the Olympic organisers ruled.

National Tag Reader Surveillance Grid
Silently, but constantly, the government is now watching, recording your everyday travels and storing years of your activities in massive data warehouses that can be quickly “mined” to find out when and where you have been, whom you’ve visited, meetings you’ve attended, and activities you’ve taken part in. This is all done by using an elaborate network of Automatic License Plate Recognition cameras, also known as tag readers.
ALPR is a technology of social control. And it’s not just critics who call it so. The International Association of Chiefs of Police, which itself favors tag readers, acknowledged in a report “The potential privacy harm of surveillance is its potential use as a tool of social control.”
The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund has spent years investigating and uncovering this mass surveillance grid that is being put in place in the United States in the absence of public awareness, scrutiny, debate or oversight.
It’s a system of mass surveillance and data warehousing on law-abiding persons and citizens. You’re being tracked routinely, without probable cause, without a warrant and without even a suspicion that you have committed a crime.
Originally developed by the United Kingdom to be used against the Irish Republican Army, later deployed by the U.S. in Baghdad, tag readers have now been adapted for routine and massive deployment against civilians in the U.S.
Watch us, watching them. View the interactive map to see our growing catalog of the documented instances of this web of spy cameras sweeping the nation. Participate, by submitting to us images and locations and other documentation of ALPR technology in your town or neighborhood.

smart pills, Proteus Biomendical
No matter how fast pharmaceutical companies can churn out drugs to prevent or cure illnesses, health insurance doesn't cover the cost of hiring a person to follow you around and remind you to take your meds. So the FDA has approved a pill that can do it on its own by monitoring your insides and relaying the information back to a healthcare provider.
Panel looks at mileage-based fees for state drivers By Larry Sandler of the Journal Sentinel Sept. 25, 2012
A panel is examining whether Wisconsin motorists should pay fees based on how many miles they drive.
The mileage-based fee - which would be the first such charge in the nation - would be levied in addition to gas taxes and vehicle registration fees, Transportation Secretary Mark Gott lieb said.
It would be based on drivers reporting their odometer readings to the state, because Transportation Finance & Policy Commission members are showing little interest in the more controversial idea of monitoring mileage by installing global positioning system units in everyone's vehicles, Gott lieb said.
Data from automated licence-plate readers troubles B.C. privacy watchdog Daily Brew – 8 hours ago
Automated vehicle licence-plate readers have rapidly become a must-have tool for police but the way the data is being shared has caused British Columbia's privacy watchdog to throw up a red flag.
Increasingly, police cruisers are equipped with infrared cameras that can read as many as 3,000 plates an hour and, linked automatically to a database in the patrol car's computer, tell officers if a vehicle is stolen or connected with a traffic violation or more serious crime.
Now, after an investigation, B.C. Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has recommended changes to the way the Victoria Police Department uses its system, the Globe and Mail reports. It would apply to other B.C. police departments as well.
Denham is calling for several changes, the Globe said, most importantly for a requirement that when plates do not produce any matches in the cruiser's on-board database, which is managed by the RCMP, the scan record must be deleted immediately.
The "daily scan record" includes personal information of every registered owner whose plate was scanned, whether they're suspected of anything or not. For now the record is transferred by Victoria police to the Mounties at the end of each shift for deletion by them.
