Unforgettable Password: Smartphones Could Soon Be Unlocked With Ears – 29 April 2015

RT logoIf you think typing in a four-digit pin number to unlock your smartphone is simply too burdensome, you may soon have other options. Yahoo has developed a way to use your ear, palm, fingers, or knuckles to access your device.

The system, called Bodyprint, turns a regular touchscreen into a biometric scanner which can recognize the unique shape of a user’s body part.

Created by Yahoo Labs in California, the project was presented earlier this week at the 2015 Computer-Human Interaction Conference (CHI) in Seoul.

In a demonstration at the event, a Bodyprint user received a call on his smartphone. He was able to unlock his phone by simply pressing it to his ear – a task that took less than a second. Further details can be found in a paper written by the developers.

James Corbett – The Corbett Report – Profiting From War Has Never Been So Easy! – 29 April 2015

In my various interviews, speeches, q&a sessions and other public interactions, there’s one question that seems to come up over and over. It’s usually delivered in a half-joking way, almost as if the questioner isn’t really serious. But they ask it anyway: “How do we make money from all of this?”

However hesitantly it may be asked, I realize this is a serious question. We all still live in a world where, like it or not, 99.9% of the people around us still treat these colorful pieces of debt-based central bank-authorized funny money as the only possible form of payment. And that means we all need to find ways to collect them. So my standard reply is equally half-joking, half deadly serious: “If you’re looking to make money, you’ll never go broke investing in the military-industrial complex.” Continue reading

EU Parliament Backs Drastic Cuts To Irrepressible Plastic Bag Use – 29 April 2015

RT logoThe European Parliament has adopted new rules aimed at reducing the pollution stemming from irrepressible use of plastic bags. Shoppers will be obliged to use re-usable bags, less hazardous for the environment, or pay extra at the counter.

Once the rules are confirmed later this year, the 28 member states will be required to reduce the use of plastic bags by some 80 percent by 2025.

The states will have a choice of which route to take to achieve the set target. The first choice is for shoppers to reduce the use of “non-biodegradable plastic bags to 90 lightweight bags per citizen by the end of 2019 and 40 by the end of 2025,” the EU Parliament press release reads.

The forest fires in the Chernobyl exclusion zone may re-disperse a significant amount of original radiation contamination, depending on whether the fire continues in its trajectory toward the epicenter, evolutionary biologist Timothy Mousseau told RT.

RT:How dangerous is the situation right now?

Timothy Mousseau: Well, from what I can tell, and there hasn’t been a lot of detailed information available, but based on the satellite image that I’ve seen and an area on the map, the Chernobyl map that has been outlined for me by people who are working in the town of Chernobyl right now – they’ve suggested it is to the south of the main contaminated area and heading north. And if you look at the satellite image you can see that the clouds, the smoke is heading directly towards Minsk, Belarus. And I suppose that is good news for Ukraine, but bad news for Belarus.

RT: And how worried should Belarus be then?
