U.S. investigations on Canadian soil done within the law: Day
Last Updated: Thursday, October 5, 2006 | 8:12 AM ET
Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day acknowledged Thursday that U.S. agents
conduct investigations in Canada but said all are done according to Canadian
Day was responding to a report regarding an internal FBI audit that shows
U.S. agents are carrying out investigations without the approval of the
It says the FBI has given agents in its Buffalo field office clearance to
conduct “routine investigations” up to 50 miles into Canadian territory.
When asked about the report during question period, Day said Canadian
security forces work with Canada’s allies, including the U.S, and have
agreements in terms of information sharing.
“We have teams that are designated going back and forth across the border
and sometimes it is farther than 50 miles or 50 kilometres,” Day said.
“I can assure you that everything that is done on Canadian soil in relation
to security and safety investigations are done in accordance with our law.”
The most recent audit by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s inspector
general, done in 2004, documents the growth of FBI operations in Canada
As well as the reference to “routine investigations” inside Canadian
territory it also says that about 30 per cent of FBI agents crossing the
border to work in Canada failed to get “country clearance.” In other words,
they didn’t get Canada’s approval.
The inspector general’s report documents 135 unapproved FBI crossings and
says there is no sign the crossings will stop.
Canadian officials say they have made no protest to the U.S. government
about FBI agents operating without permission on Canadian soil.
According to the report, the FBI has struggled to keep up with its Canadian
workload despite opening two new branch offices. It pursues thousands of

Microsoft smart home showcases interactive wallpaper
October 5, 2006
The latest remodel of the Microsoft Home, the software vendor’s
techno-fueled vision of domestic accoutrements of the future, has no robot
butlers nor any flying cars parked in the driveway.
The latest remodel of the Microsoft Home, the software vendor’s
techno-fueled vision of domestic accoutrements of the future, has no robot
butlers nor any flying cars parked in the driveway.
But what it does showcase — and predict will be available to well-heeled
cocooners five to 10 years hence — are a variety of smart appliances, from
lamps to interactive wallpaper , that can be controlled by tablet PCs or
cell phone-wielding residents.
Microsoft Corp. showed off the Home, located on its Redmond, Wash., campus
this week. First built in 1994 at a different location, the Home is stocked
with technology that has been refreshed every few years. In the latest
edition, not a single desktop or even laptop computer was displayed. Rather,
Microsoft officials assume that computing power, mesh networking and thin
LCD and OLED screens will become so cheap and ubiquitous that residents will
be able to interact with computers from anywhere in the home.
The community mailbox outside tracks the mailman’s location using GPS, and
users can get a real-time estimate of when mail will arrive on the mailbox
display or by cell phone. RFID tags embedded into envelopes even detail what
mail is on the way.
Visitors that ring the front doorbell have their picture taken by a digital
camera, which is sent along with a notification to the cell phone of the
homeowner, who can quiz the visitor or unlock the door. Upon entering, the
visitor or homeowner can issue commands to the Home computer system, which
in this case is named “Grace.” Or they can tap touch-sensitive OLED screens
hidden under the wall’s paint. A sculptural light display in the corner
flickers red to indicate when e-mail from a favorite sender — say, parents,
children or siblings — has arrived.
Meanwhile, a bulletin board in the kitchen has been updated for the digital
age. Pin a party invitation onto its smart surface, and information read
from its RFID tag causes the question “Accept invitation, yes or no?” to be
displayed below it. Or place a pizza coupon onto the board and the
restaurant’s menu and phone number are displayed, the latter of which can be
called with a tap on the board.
Jonathan Cluts, director of customer prototyping and strategy at Microsoft,
predicts that RFID tags will become ubiquitous due to low cost and the
ability to program and print them out at home using ink-jet printers with
In the Home, a girl’s bedroom features a mirror that doubles as a screen. By
holding clothes up to it, she can get information about them, including
whether matching items like a skirt or jacket are in the closet or the wash.
Meanwhile, wallpaper now being developed by companies such as Philips serve
as giant displays for pictures from a MySpace page or even video.
The network that enables such ubiquitous connectivity relies on both wired
and wireless technology. The physical cabling is not the key enabler, Cluts
said. Rather, it is the IP-based network that uses Web services protocols
developed by Microsoft over the years which link all of the electronic
devices in the home.
Though Cluts said there is no cap on how much his team can spend on these
prototype homes of the near future, Microsoft does try to include only
high-end technologies that it believes will cost consumers six years from
now about the same as their mainstream equivalents today. One example was
the 2000 version of the Microsoft Home, when Cluts demanded, over protests,
that no televisions or monitors with cathode-ray tubes be allowed.
“People thought we were crazy because regular-size plasma TVs were selling
for US$30,000,” Cluts said. “Now, a 65-inch screen plasma television costs
less than $10,000.”
Microsoft doesn’t claim to be IT prescient, he said. Some of the technology,
such as a digital home entertainment center displayed in the 2000 Home,
leads directly to products from Microsoft. In that case, the Media Center
versions of Windows XP emerged. Others, such as the video-on-demand
technology in the original 1994 home, or a “smart” trash can that could
detect garbage and alert homeowners about what to replenish, never make it
“It’s like with a concept car,” he said. “Sometimes we make a [Chrysler] PT
Cruiser. Sometimes we just make a hunk of glass and metal.”

Busy Catholics can now outsource their prayers to a call center in Rome.

mais ça disait que vu que la corée a fait des test nucléaires et admis avoir
la bombe, y a pu aucune raison d’attaquer l’iran, étant donné que l’offense
nucléaire de la corée est plus immédiate,
Donc, si les US attaquent l’iran pour des soupçons sur leur programme
d’uranium enrichi, il devraient aussi attaquer la corée pour le fait qu’ils
ont des armes de destruction massive.
Mais la corée sait que militairement, les states n’attaquent que les faibles
et les pauvres, et attaquer la corée serait pire que le vietnam et pire que
l’irak parce que y feraient une guerre qui deviendrait nucléaire, dans le
but d’eviter un conflit nucléaire?
Donc les States ne peuvent plus se permettre d’attaquer l’iran
La seule façon qu’il réussissent à attaquer l’iran, c’est avec un false flag
attack contre israel, et ce ne serait pas une invasion US-led, mais bien

Actuellement en corée, si t’es pas militaire, tu crève de faim, et l’onu
propose des sanctions economiques contre la corée, mais ca ne va que toucher
le peuple, et ils le savent
leur seul choix c’est d’accepter la corée dans les pays qui ont l’arme,

HBO to Premier ‘Hacking Democracy’ Just Prior to November Election!
*TIMELY DOCUMENTARY HACKING DEMOCRACY
EXPOSES THE VULNERABILITY OF AMERICA’S VOTING SYSTEM
WHEN THE EXCLUSIVE HBO PRESENTATION DEBUTS NOV. 2nd,
JUST BEFORE ELECTION DAY*
Electronic voting machines count 80% of the votes cast in America today. But
are they reliable? Are they safe from tampering? From a current
congressional hearing to persistent media reports that suggest misuse of
data and even outright fraud, concerns over the integrity of electronic
voting are growing by the day. And if the voting process is not secure,
neither is America’s democracy.
The timely, cautionary documentary HACKING DEMOCRACY exposes gaping holes in
the security of America’s electronic voting system when it debuts THURSDAY,
NOV. 2 (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) – less than a week before the midterm
elections – exclusively on HBO. Other HBO playdates: Nov. 5 (9:00 a.m.), 7
(9:00 a.m., 6:30 p.m.), 13 (12:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m.), 18 (6:00 p.m.) and 26
(1:15 a.m.).HBO2 playdates: Nov. 4 (noon), 7 (11:45 p.m.), 10 (6:30 p.m.)
and 15 (3:00 a.m.).
In the 2000 presidential election, an electronic voting machine recorded
minus 16,022 votes for Al Gore in Volusia County, Fla. While fraud was never
proven, the faulty tally alerted computer scientists, politicians and
everyday citizens to the very real possibility of computer hacking during
In 2002, Seattle grandmother and writer Bev Harris asked officials in her
county why they had acquired electronic touch screen systems for their
elections. Unsatisfied with their explanation, she set out to learn about
electronic voting machines on her own. In the course of her research, which
unearthed hundreds of reported incidents of mishandled voting information,
Harris stumbled across an “online library” of the Diebold Corporation –
which counted around 40 percent of the presidential votes nationwide –
discovering a treasure trove of information about the inner-workings of the
company’s voting system.
Harris brought this proprietary “secret” information to computer security
expert Avi Rubin of Johns Hopkins University, who determined that the
software lacked the necessary security features to prevent tampering. Her
subsequent investigation took her from the trash cans of Texas to the
secretary of state of California and finally to Florida, where a
“mini-election” to test the vulnerability of the memory cards used in
electronic voting produced alarming results.
As the scope of her mission grew, Harris drew on the expertise of other
computer-science experts, politicians and activists, among them: Andy
Stephenson, candidate for secretary of state in Washington state; Susan
Bernecker, Republican candidate in New Orleans; Kathleen Wynne, an activist
from Cleveland; Hugh Thompson, director, Security Innovations, Inc.; Ion
Sancho, Florida’s supervisor of elections; and Harri Hursti, a
computer-security analyst. Academics, public officials and others seen in
interview footage include: Deanie Low, supervisor of elections, Volusia
County, Fla.; Mark Radke, marketing director of Diebold; David Cobb,
presidential candidate, Green Party; Rep. Stephanie Tubbs-Jones of Ohio; and
Sen. Barbara Boxer of California.
Diebold software, or other software like it, is installed in thousands of
counties across 32 states. David Dill, professor of computer science at
Stanford, says the problem is that there are “lots of people involved in
writing the software, and lots of people who could have touched the software
before it went into that machine. If one of those people put something
malicious in the software and it’s distributed to all the machines, then
that one person could be responsible for changing tens of thousands of
votes, maybe even hundreds of thousands, across the country.”
In Florida, Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho presided over a trial
“mini-election” to see if the vote could be hacked without being detected.
Before votes were actually cast, computer analyst Harri Hursti “stuffed the
ballot box” by entering votes on the computer’s memory card. Then, after
votes were cast, the results displayed when the same memory card was entered
in the central tabulating program indicated that fraud was indeed possible.
In other words, by accessing a memory card before an election, someone could
change the results – a claim Diebold had denied was possible.
Ultimately, Bev Harris’ research proved that the top-secret computerized
systems counting the votes in America’s public elections are not only
fallible, but also vulnerable to undetectable hacking, from local school
board contests to the presidential race. With the electronic voting machines
of three companies – Diebold, ESS and Sequoia – collectively responsible for
around 80 percent of America’s votes today, the stakes for democracy are
