Apple Patent Can Disable Your Smartphone · November 29, 2012

Apple has a new patent for technology than can disable certain or all features of your smartphone. Designed to “enforce policies” on wireless devices, it could prevent some “wireless devices from communicating with other wireless devices.” It can also enforce a “sleep mode” when entering a sensitive area.

This kind of technology has tens of thousands of applications such as in classrooms, customs and border control areas, theaters, shopping malls, police action or lockdown, and even airlines. It can disable cameras and block connections to mobile networks.

The technology is selective and “would send an encoded signal that can selectively shut down features of smartphones within range depending on what kind of policy needs to be enforced.” Only those devices used by authorities or those in control of the technology would be working.

Apple says that the new technology would be useful for “preventing copyright theft, such as in cinemas, or to prevent cameras from “being used in inappropriate places, like department store changing rooms. But in the patent application, Apple said that it could also be used for “covert police or government operations” [that] may require complete ‘blackout’ conditions.”

This is the sort of thing you would see in societies under dictatorships like China or Iran. But increasingly there is interest in western, so-called democratic countries, to use this and other technologies in similar ways.

During the “Arab Spring” revolutions and the Occupy protests in Western countries, smartphones were crucial tools for citizens in documenting police behavior and in recruiting support. With this technology police could limit the ability of citizens to photograph and upload pictures of excessive force or brutality of police or security forces and it could also limit the ability to communicate in other ways.

The technology has caused a furor with civil rights activists. Civil rights concerns include using the technology to limit freedom of speech or expression as well as other civil, constitutional, or human rights. Smartphones have greatly increased accountability of civil and military authorities. The new technology has the potential to reduce that answerability and undermine constitutional protections.

“Civil rights campaigners warn that those in authority most definitely can abuse this new technology.”

Note that new technology is both good and bad. The more high tech our world has become, the more it also undermines constitutional principles and protections. Eventually national constitutions that protect freedom of speech, the right of public assembly, and religious liberty will repudiate those protections at least partly through the use of technology.

It’s one of the most misinterpreted prophecies in all of the Bible – yet it is so important to correctly understand this subject.

Tourists swim in Venice square as heavy rain pounds Italy · November 28, 2012

Almost 75% of the city of Venice was flooded recently because of heavy rains. The waters reached their “sixth highest level since records began in 1872… In Tuscany [there was] 9 inches…of rain [that] fell in four hours, causing the Ricortola and Parmignola rivers to flood.” There were “at least six bridges destroyed,” as well as “vineyards and olive groves.” People had to take refuge on roof tops to escape the flooding.

Venice is no stranger to flooding from the sea, and Venetians are very prepared for the normal annual flooding that occurs there. But this was something entirely different. This flooding did not come from the sea. It came from the rivers.

Even though a new sea barrier is set to be completed by 2015 in order to keep the sea water at bay, ultimately, it will not help this kind of disaster. Also, it is important that one cannot rely on the government for protection, especially in these perilous times, for God, or Satan, when permitted can overthrow all the barriers and protections that man has set for himself.

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince(Satan) of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Ephesians 2:2

The earthquakes will come; the floods will come; and we are not to establish ourselves in the wicked cities, where the enemy is served in every way, and where God is so often forgotten. Country Living p. 31

Soft Drinks and Osteoarthritis · November 26, 2012

Soft drinks are not just associated with being overweight or obese. Researchers have discovered that consumption of soft drinks is associated with osteoarthritis in men. The study included 2000 men and women with osteoarthritis of the knee. Men who drink soda have a greater risk that “their arthritis will progress and cause more pain.”

“Our main finding is that in general, the more sugary soda men drink, the greater the risk that knee osteoarthritis will get worse,” says Harvard Medical School researcher Bing Lu, MD, D.Ph. It’s not only because soda drinkers pack on more pounds. In dividing the subjects into obese and non-obese categories, the researchers were surprised to find that the sugary drinks damaged the knees of non-obese men more than obese men, suggesting that “soft drinks worsen knee osteoarthritis independently of the wear and tear on the joints caused by carrying around excess weight,” Lu says.

During the study, funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and makers of anti-arthritis drugs, men who drank five or more soft drinks a week had twice as much narrowing of knee joint space compared to men who did not drink soda.

“There’s an easy answer. Just don’t drink [sugary] soda,” Lu says. He notes that some studies have also linked soda to heart disease.

While those with knee arthritis should reduce or eliminate soft drinks all together, those with excess weight should concentrate on their overall diet and weight as well.

As you would expect, the soft drink industry objects to the findings saying that the study is not conclusive and that it failed to prove that drinking soft drinks causes any negative health outcomes. While more study needs to be done to further document the links, in terms of weight and its impact on osteoarthritis, all calories count, including those contributed by soft drinks. The study points out additional potential risk factors.

“Lu says that certain ingredients in sugary sodas, including phosphoric acid, caffeine and ingredients for coloring and sweetening, may affect absorption of bone-building calcium and bone health. But that remains to be studied.”

It is unclear why there were different findings between men and women. Lu thinks it may be related to sex hormones. Estrogen does have an impact on bone degeneration. Again, further research may need to be done.

After people have been sending this video in facebook, it says that it has been flagged as having content that is abusive. They have blocked other Mark of the beast video such like the one at user name: NicholasPOGM. The truth will be harder to get to the people as time gets closer to the time of trouble. This video is explaining the mark of the beast! The special characteristic of the beast, and therefore of his image, is the breaking of God’s commandments. Says Daniel, of the little horn, the papacy: “He shall think to change times and the law.” Daniel 7:25. And Paul styled the same power the “man of sin,” who was to exalt himself above God. One prophecy is a complement of the other. Only by changing God’s law could the papacy exalt itself above God; whoever should understandingly keep the law as thus changed would be giving supreme honor to that power by which the change was made. Such an act of obedience to papal laws would be a mark of allegiance to the pope in the place of God. {Great Controversy p.446 par.1}

Martin Luther was as yet but partially converted from the errors of Romanism. But as he compared the Holy Oracles with the papal decrees and constitutions, he was filled with wonder. “I am reading,” he wrote, “the decretals of the popes, and . . . . I know not whether the pope is antichrist himself, or whether he is his apostle; so misrepresented and even crucified does Christ appear in them.” Yet at this time Luther was still a supporter of the Roman Church, and had no thought that he would ever separate from her communion. {Great Controversy 1888 p139 par.1}

Governor Cuomo Verifies Prophecy · November 26, 2012Photo: Satellite image of Hurricane Isabel

After superstorm Sandy, Governor Andrew Cuomo said that “that New York City and the rest of the state face “a new reality of extreme weather events” and should be reconfigured to deal with it.” Referring to Hurricanes Irene and Sandy as well as tropical storm Lee, he said he told President Obama that New York “has a 100-year flood every two years now.”

In other words, what was once considered to be a rare extreme weather event that would happen only once in a century is now a regular occurrence. Cuomo wants New York to “build back smarter.”

“That is not a political statement; that is a factual statement,” Cuomo said. “Anyone who says there is not a change in weather patterns is denying reality. We have a new reality when it comes to these weather patterns; we have an old infrastructure, we have old systems. That is not a good combination and that is one of the lessons I will take from this, personally.”

A “100-year flood” in 2007 occurred in New York after torrential rainfall of several inches. Then in 2011 Hurricane Irene dropped 12 inches of rain and flooded parts of New York and Long Island as well as towns near Albany in upstate New York.

Then shortly after Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee dropped 10 to 12 inches of rain in the Binghamton N.Y., area, just north of Pennsylvania, and caused record high flooding along the Susquehanna River, as high as 17 feet above flood stage.

Two months after Irene, the “Halloween Nor’easter, dropped up to 20 inches of snow and left 3 million people without electricity throughout New England.

“The largest storm we ever had,” said John Miksad, Senior Vice President of Consolidated Edison, “was Irene last year at 200,000 [people without electricity].” In the wake of Sandy, there were about 350,000 Con. Ed. customers without power. So we’re in uncharted territory…” he said.

They can try to “build smarter,” and that may help with the level of storms experienced over the last few years, but it will not help much when storms are larger and much more powerful.

“Calamities, earthquakes, floods, disasters by land and by sea will increase. God is looking upon the world today as He looked upon it in Noah’s time. He is sending His message to people today as He did in the days of Noah. There is, in this age of the world, a repetition of the wickedness of the world before the flood. Many helped Noah build the ark who did not believe the startling message, who did not cleanse themselves from all wrong principles, who did not overcome the temptation to do and say things that were entirely contrary to the mind and will of God.” Review and Herald, December 11, 1900
