TUD on Facts About PG&E Acquisition

Facts On PG&E Acquisition And Response To John Buckley, CSERC Imagine being presented with an opportunity to own an asset you, your family, and others have depended upon for generations.

Now imagine that while you wait to make a decision, someone else buys that asset out from underneath you and then uses that ownership to exploit and take advantage of you and your family for decades. Why would anyone pass up the opportunity to protect themselves and their family from being taken advantage of in such a way - especially when the asset in question is our water supply? Unfortunately, this is precisely what Mr. John Buckley, Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center, proposes for the Tuolumne Utilities District (TUD) and its ratepayers in recent public comments circulated on May 16, 2020.

Android And iPhone Users Beware The Hidden Dangers With New Contact Tracing Apps

So, the big news this week is that Apple and Google have launched their watered down "contact-tracing" platforms into the world. Only "contact-tracing" has now become "exposure notification..."

...and judging by all the evidence to-date, they're not going to be effective enough to make a difference. Worse, they introduce a set of dangerous security risks that have not been addressed. False hopes, false starts. Let's clear something up from the start. Contact-tracing is not an opt-in Bluetooth app that might register your proximity to an infected person, under a very limited set of circumstances, including that you're both fully running the app. No, contact tracing is a manually-intensive, surveillance-heavy, privacy-intrusive process where a combination of brute-force measures and meticulous attention to detail, under the purview of well-trained operatives, roots out the spread of infection.

The Apple-Google contact tracing system won't work. It still deserves praise.

This article is part of Privacy in the Pandemic, a Future Tense series. -- Big Tech's contact tracing initiative complicates the narrative of European governments protecting citizens against Silicon Valley's privacy intrusions.

In debates over digital privacy, American tech companies are often branded as the villains, with European policymakers cast in the role of savior. Big Tech is out to steal your privacy, but European governments are stepping in to protect it. Or so the narrative goes. But the new exposure notification system released by Google and Apple on Wednesday has turned these roles on their head, albeit in ways that at least some public health authorities say will make their job more difficult. It stands as a clear warning against type casting in this debate.

Sonora Pass Open

Sonora Pass was closed briefly after the storms, but was opened a couple days later. To tell you the truth, I'm really surprised they have opened it for Memorial Day. This is a maximum enforcement weekend though, and the police are out in force.

The tourists were out in droves today. I hope the local businesses are busy this weekend. I can't believe how many people are still wearing masks. They really do more harm that good and I've heard that from more that one prominent physician. Wearing masks may increase your risk of coronavirus infection, expert says.

Post Office Delays

The post office is shorthanded. They're hiring 500 new workers to meet the demand.

There are signs posted not to expect mail delivery to your post office box until 2:00 p.m. daily. This will be for every day until further notice. On the way I drove past Twain Harte Lumber and I can't remember the last time I drove past and saw every single parking space full, but they were.

Banned, Censored, Social Media

I have spent the last few years working on Facebook, neglecting my own work, I'm ashamed to admit. Facebook finally banned me, and I am very glad they did, because otherwise I might never have left.

I am totally against censorship. Do you want to know what I did to get banned? I posted this meme and they took it down, so I posted it again. Normally, after posting the second time they would leave it be, but not this time. They removed it again. So, I put it back up and I was banned from Facebook. All my content, all my uploads and all discussion and posts I've made over the last decade to Facebook were removed.

Almost Depopulated: My Chemtrail Heart Attack

Monday morning, March 14th, 2011 just after midnight, I began to have intense pain in my heart. By 12:15 am, I was on the floor on my knees in pain, hyperventilating, with tears streaming down my face.

I was feeling quite a bit better but still had some heart pain, so I figured I'd tell the EMT about chemtrails. I really wanted to see what his reaction would be because I know that my heart issues were caused by them. When they spray the skies, my heart hurts and I experience arrhythmia. When the sky clears, my heart slows down and all of the pain goes away, not to mention the myriad of other issues that chemtrails cause me to suffer with. Ambulance, InsideFor the next 10 minutes, I calmly and methodically recounted my experience with chemtrails; how I saw them, smelled them, tasted them, and how all of my health issues correlated with them. I spoke in a calm, matter-of-fact way; the way you would expect an eye witness to speak when they had witnessed a crime.
