NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and usually inserted in the webbing between the thumb and forefinger using a needle the same thickness as used in body piercing.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: It started with a barely noticeable trickle a few years ago in remote regions of Sweden, and now is expanding to nearly every major technology-based country. Using workers as test samples, insertable microchips track their every movement, allows them to make purchases from vending machines, with all the collected data analyzed and fed into the system. Our story today tells you about ten volunteers in Australia who were chipped in connection with attending a technology convention called Pause Fest. The festival is four months away, and they will use their chips to purchase train tickets, swipe into their gym access, unlock doors, and then attend the festival all through chip access. The data collected from their four months of living with the microchips will be assembled and studied to see how this technology could be applied on a global scale. The race to see which country figures it out first is on.

It feels, says insertable technology expert Kayla Heffernan, like getting a drip. Once the needle is removed the incision heals in a few days and the microchip remains, allowing the wearer to open doors with the brush of a hand – provided they only wish to access one particular place.

Commercially available insertable microchips are only large enough to hold one access code and a small amount of other information, so the days of replacing an entire wallet and keychain with a tiny computer under the skin are not yet upon us. The future is coming, but it’s not in a rush.

Ten volunteers received a microchip at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne on Wednesday to mark the launch of Pause Fest, a technology and culture festival now in its eighth year.

Their chips were preloaded with a three-day pass to the festival and will be programmed to unlock the door to their home, gym, or workplace, or potentially to function as their public transport pass.

Workers Get Implanted Microchips for Access:

When the festival is held in four months time, the volunteers will take part in a panel with Heffernan to talk about whether they found the chips useful.

Heffernan has had one microchip between her thumb and forefinger for almost 18 months, which she uses to unlock her front door. She got another on the outer edge of her other hand last November to access her office at Melbourne University.

She is doing a PhD on the applications of insertable technology and decided to get a chip after a year spent listening to people wax lyrical about the convenience of never having to carry their keys.

“If I want I can just walk out without any keys, my key is in my hand so I can’t forget it, which is handy because I have locked myself out before,” Heffernan says. World’s lamest cyborg? My microchip isn’t cool now – but it could be the future

“Some people use it to unlock their phones or their computers. Some people have modified their cars and one person even their motorbike, so it’s not only access to their house but it’s access to their vehicle and to turn it on. Obviously that requires quite a bit of microelectronics and physical mechanical work, and that’s not accessible for everyone.”

Heffernan’s original chip usually contains a link to her website, which people can access if they scan her hand with their phone, provided they have the near-field communication (NFC) capabilities switched on. At the moment it just says “hello” because she is demonstrating that it could be reprogrammed.

The security risk, she says, is quite low.

“The read range is very short, so you have to be touching my hand,” she says. “I’m going to know if that’s happened. And even for a nefarious purpose, if someone knocked me out, let’s say, it has my website on it. It doesn’t have anything useful that they’re going to be able to take.”

Insertable microchips made global headlines earlier this year when Stockholm firm Epicentre gave its staff the option of having an insertable chip in lieu of a swipe card. Three Square Market, a tech company in Wisconsin, followed suit.

Both stories raised concerns that the chip would allow employees to be tracked and their productivity mapped by companies, which would be able to tell how many bathroom breaks they were taking.

But Heffernan says that’s more a reflection of science fiction-obsessed news reporters than any actual privacy risk. She says it is possible the chip could be used to track bathroom breaks but that would only be if employees required people to swipe to get into the bathroom, a function that could also be tracked via a standard swipe card.

“The chip has no tracking capabilities,” Heffernan says. “They don’t have any battery and they don’t have any GPS sensors … If someone was going to track you, they’d use your cell phone.”

The current models of microchip are not much more sophisticated than those that have been embedded in the neck of most household pets for more than two decades. Developers are working on a model that will be able to hold more than one number, meaning the same card can be used to hold multiple access codes and on a chip that has the level of encryption required to be able to handle payments.

“If you could use it for everywhere, so work, home, gym and only need one chip, that kind of gives people more incentive to get one,” Heffernan says. “Payments are the killer application. As soon as you can pay with it, more and more people will go ahead and get these.”

The founder of Pause Fest, George Hedon, says he expects most of the volunteers will have tried to hack into their microchip and expand its application by the time the festival begins next year.

“They will also be able to come to the festival and wave their hands like Lord Vader to come in,” Hedon says. More than 1,000 attendees, 150 speakers, and 75 start-up companies are expected to attend the festival, which runs from 7 to 9 February.

Among the presenters are Netflix, which will talk about the use of artificial intelligence to design its original productions based on demographic and viewing data, and NASA. “Before they even get out to the audience they know who will watch it,” Hedon says. “It’s pretty scary but it’s very effective.” source

Exactly 7 Days After Israel And The United States Agreed To The Two State Solution, Hurricane Ian Smashes Florida Causing Catastrophic Destruction

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Exactly one week after both Israel and the United States agreeing to the Two State Solution at the United Nations, Hurricane Ian hits Florida

As I write this, Hurricane Ian is howling directly overhead, the power in our condo flickers on and off, and I am grateful for the battery backup that keeps my computer running uninterrupted. It was exactly one week ago yesterday that the prime minister of Israel said the Jews are ready to divide their land to create a Palestinian state. It is exactly one week ago today that both Israel and the United States stood before the United Nations General Assembly and declared their support for the Two State Solution. Hurricane Ian has decimated whole sections of the west coast of Florida, is that coincidence, or is the Lord speaking?

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignationeven all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJB)

Hurricane Ian is the first hurricane to hit Florida since 2018, all the other ones either blew away or amounted to nothing. So to have a storm of this magnitude, doing the damage it is doing, exactly one week after both the US and Israel agree to the Two State Solution, to me, is no coincidence. Please pray for all the people who have been, who currently are, and who will be in the path of this deadly storm, that the Lord will be gracious and show mercy. Pray also for Israel and the Jews who, despite the witness of all the prophets, are unwittingly preparing themselves to enter into the time of Jacob’s trouble that will begin after the Rapture of the Church takes place.

Hurricane Ian updates: Florida sheriff says ‘fatalities are in the hundreds’ after monster storm

FROM THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER: After Hurricane Ian swept through Florida on Thursday, the storm left millions without power, and officials are predicting there may be hundreds of fatalities.

“Fatalities are in the hundreds,” Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno told Good Morning America on Thursday.

Ian was moving northeast across Florida at about 8 mph with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph at 5 a.m. Thursday, according to the National Hurricane Center. However, the agency warned that Ian could pick back up and reach hurricane strength as it reaches Florida’s east coast on Saturday, posing risks to Georgia and the Carolinas.

This Is What Hurricane Ian Is Doing In My Hometown Of Saint Augustine

Flood waters have engulfed the downtown streets of America’s oldest city Saint Augustine.

The NHC downgraded Hurricane Ian to tropical storm status early Thursday morning after the storm began to weaken gradually overnight Wednesday as it moved across central Florida. It’s not yet clear how many fatalities or injuries have been sustained due to Ian, and there have not been any reports or numbers from state officials.

President Joe Biden declared a major disaster for Florida early Thursday morning, approving the distribution of federal aid to supplement recovery efforts in the aftermath of Ian. This federal assistance includes grants for temporary housing and home repairs, loans to insure property losses, and other programs to assist business owners in recovering from the storm’s damage.

Ian made landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph just after 3 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, making it the strongest hurricane to rock the state since Hurricane Michael in 2018. State officials issued evacuation orders earlier this week before the storm reached the state, warning of possibly life-threatening conditions from high winds and heavy rainfall. READ MORE

With Chinese And Russian Warships Off Alaska, And Hurricane Ian Barreling Toward Florida, There Is No Better Time To Hand Out Gospel Tracts

With enemy warships off Alaska and Hurricane Ian threatening Florida, remember that you have been charged with getting the gospel of the kingdom of God to a lost and dying world!

A U.S. Coast Guard ship on routine patrol in the Bering Sea came across a guided missile cruiser from China, officials said Monday. The patrol boat, known as a cutter called Kimball, later discovered there were two other Chinese naval ships and four Russian naval vessels, including a destroyer, all in single formation. Over in Florida, the National Weather Service tells us that a  Category 2 Hurricane force wind of 85-105 mph with gusts to 130 mph will hit sometime early Wednesday. Oh yeah, man, time to tell the people about Jesus Christ, and I did exactly that while filling up my Jeep at Costco this morning.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7,8 (KJB)

If you are a Christian saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, you have already been charged with the preaching and teaching of the gospel of the kingdom of God in these last days. At the height of the pandemic, close to 2,500,000 people per month were coming to NTEB as we warned of the coming judgment. Here on Day 925 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, that judgment is closer than ever before, and when it hits, it’s lights out. So when is the time to get something done for the Lord Jesus? Now, right now.

Mandatory evacuations ordered for over 300,000 in Tampa Bay as Hurricane Ian churns closer to Florida

FROM FOX WEATHER: Mandatory and voluntary evacuations totaling over 300,000 people have been ordered along Florida’s west coast as Hurricane Ian rapidly intensifies into a major hurricane Tuesday morning. Florida’s Gulf Coast from Englewood to the Anclote River, including Tampa Bay, is under a Hurricane Watch ahead of the expected wind, rain and storm surge from Hurricane Ian. Given Florida’s unique coastline, the topography lends itself to the state being highly susceptible to storm-surge flooding during hurricanes.

Several counties along Florida’s west coast have already issued mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders. According to the FOX Forecast Center, storm surge could reach as high as 10 feet along portions of Florida’s west coast, though the entire western Florida coast is susceptible to some level of storm surge. Storm surge is the rise of water levels caused directly by a storm and does not take into account rainfall or wave size, which can add additional feet on top of a storm’s surge.

“In order to protect residents, we are issuing a mandatory evacuation order for Zone A, recommending a voluntary evacuation for Zone B and opening emergency shelters,” Hillsborough County Administrator Bonnie Wise said. READ MORE

Hundreds of thousands of residents have been ordered to evacuate the Tampa area in Florida ahead of a possible direct hit from Hurricane Ian. With highways jammed and the city’s main airport suspending operations later on Tuesday, families are searching for ways to stay safe.

Days Of Lot

High School Football Players Are Being Raped And Sodomized By Their Fellow Teammates As Liberal Public Schools Devolve Into Dystopian Horror Movie

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Can you imagine high school football players being raped and sodomized by their teammates, what type of world has this become?

Someone had told me a few weeks ago the story of how a high school football player was raped in the back of the bus on the ride home from the ‘big game’, and the two coaches on the bus as well as the bus driver did nothing to stop it. How could that be, I wondered, that just didn’t seem possible. So today I googled it and what came back was not the one story I was looking for, but many articles on how high school football players all across America are being sexually assaulted by their male teammates.

“But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.” Genesis 19:4,5 (KJB)

As we talked about on our Podcast yesterday, the world we now live in is preparing itself for the soon arrival of Antichrist, and because of that, his 7-year short-lived kingdom is now being prepared to receive him. When I was in high school in the late 1970’s, we had rowdy kids on our championship, undefeated football team, and quite often not a few of those players would get in trouble. But no one was being sexually assaulted by these boys, and certainly not homosexually assaulted which is beyond imagination, and quite demonic. All this brings me to my point.

If you are over the age of 50, the world you were born into has ceased to exist, in its place has risen up the spirit of Antichrist which is infecting every part of our society. Teenagers are being chemically castrated with the blessing of governments, doctors no longer take an oath to “do no harm” as Nazi-era medical experiments have been sanctioned by America’s elite hospitals. Boys are wearing dresses with laws being passed allowing them access to the most private portions of the girl’s locker and bath rooms. This is the world we live in, and if you raise your voice against it, it is considered ‘hate speech’ and ‘violence’ against diversity. As I watch all this, my heart breaks for lost people, and I am doing everything I can to get the gospel out to see people get saved. But after the Rapture, I will be in full agreement with the LORD regarding the judgments He will send upon this earth.

3 Ridgeline football players face felony charges over sexual abuse case on school bus

FROM KUTV2: Three Ridgeline High School football players are facing felony charges over an incident of hazing involving sexual abuse on a school bus. The sheriff’s office is now investigating and said this happened on a bus when the players were returning from a sports event on Aug. 19. The incident was initially reported as a hazing case, but after officials began investigating they determined this was not hazing and rather a serious crime.

“This was not horseplay, it was intentional. Which is why we are a looking at felony charges, of forcible sexual abuse, as well as attempted forcible sexual abuse,” Lt. Doyle Peck with Cache County said.

2News tried to speak to people regarding the incident but no one wanted to comment on the graphic nature of the allegations. Officials said they first found out about the alleged incident when a school resource officer forwarded on a report that this had allegedly occurred.

According to Peck, all the people involved are high school-aged males on the football team. He said the three players worked together to assault each victim but did not go into detail because the case was still under investigation. Peck said aside from the bus driver, there were two adult coaches on the bus but it was loud and rowdy, they were not aware of the incident that occurred. READ MORE

Ten PA High School Football Players Charged with Hazing, Sexual Assault

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Middletown Area High School’s football season was canceled in August after a cell phone video went viral showing serious hazing incidents in the school, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Superintendent Chelton Hunter told parents that a school investigation found that the hazing was “much more widespread and involved many more students” than was previously known, the paper noted. The administrators then canceled the school’s football season.

Now, the police are adding to the issue.

The Lower Swatara Township Police and the Criminal Investigation Division of the District Attorney’s Office in Dauphin County opened an investigation into the hazing videos. On Wednesday, Dauphin County District Attorney Francis T. Chardo announced that ten students were charged.

“Two students, both seventeen years of age, have been charged with multiple counts of criminal attempt to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault, unlawful restraint, simple assault, and hazing,” Chardo said in a statement, according to TMZ Sports.

Investigators added that six students, ranging in ages from 14 to 17, were victims of the hazing. But up to six others may also have been victims but are reluctant to join the case. READ MORE
