Israelite Heritage Analysis Intelligence - Open Source Intelligence Analysis & Government Analysis, Clever Analysis Techniques Baghdad War Diary -- Wikileaks At 5pm EST Friday 22nd October 2010 WikiLeaks released the largest classified military leak in history. The 391,832 reports ('The Iraq War Logs'), document the war and occupation in Iraq, from 1st January 2004 to 31st December 2009 (except for the months of May 2004 and March 2009) as told by soldiers in the United States Army. Each is a 'SIGACT' or Significant Action in the war. They detail events as seen and heard by the US military troops on the ground in Iraq and are the first real glimpse into the secret history of the war that the United States government has been privy to throughout. The reports detail 109,032 deaths in Iraq, comprised of 66,081 'civilians'; 23,984 'enemy' (those labeled as insurgents); 15,196 'host nation' (Iraqi government forces) and 3,771 'friendly' (coalition forces). The majority of the deaths (66,000, over 60%) of these are civilian deaths.That is 31 civilians dying every day during the six year period.

Crowdsourcing vs Collective Intelligence. What's the diff? Thanks to intrepid design blogger, oyster fiend, and “bro”, John DiPalma and his solid blog at DesignRising, I’ve been coerced into writing much richer blog posts about the topics that I’m exploring. So, here goes the first in a series of attempts to share some meatier topics and the findings that I’m uncovering. As the title of this blog suggests (and if you’ve ventured as far as reading the “Project” section) I’m exploring the role of collective intelligence in design. When I describe my research to people, I usually start with the description of collective intelligence, and then quickly find myself falling back on the more commonly known crowdsourcing. If that doesn’t work, I run through others like open innovation and wisdom of crowds to try and paint a clearer picture for those that are unfamiliar with the concepts; all of which revolve around mass, open innovation. Collective Intelligence Crowdsourcing Is there a difference?

Cain & Abel Cain & Abel is a password recovery tool for Microsoft Operating Systems. It allows easy recovery of various kind of passwords by sniffing the network, cracking encrypted passwords using Dictionary, Brute-Force and Cryptanalysis attacks, recording VoIP conversations, decoding scrambled passwords, recovering wireless network keys, revealing password boxes, uncovering cached passwords and analyzing routing protocols. The program does not exploit any software vulnerabilities or bugs that could not be fixed with little effort. It covers some security aspects/weakness present in protocol's standards, authentication methods and caching mechanisms; its main purpose is the simplified recovery of passwords and credentials from various sources, however it also ships some "non standard" utilities for Microsoft Windows users. The latest version is faster and contains a lot of new features like APR (Arp Poison Routing) which enables sniffing on switched LANs and Man-in-the-Middle attacks.

“MAJORITY OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS ARE DESCENDENTS OF THE JEWS” FROM AMERICAN POLITICS FORUM.COM « BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL! from Majority of African Americans Are Descendents of the Jews Bumpy(The author) Posted: Sun Mar 30, 2008 10:23 pm Post subject: Majority of African Americans Are Descendents of the Jews The original biblical and Hebrew Jews were a black African people. …The original Jews in Africa 2000 years ago were a Black African people as an ethnic group. A New York Times editorial (3/2/84) described them as “a lost tribe that has kept its identity for more than 2,000 years in a remote corner of Africa.” Roman historian Tacitus wrote that many of his time believed that the Jews “were a race of Ethiopian origin.” The word Semite is from semi which means half. African Americans are largely descendants of the original Black Jews, and genetic testing has proved this fact! As predicted by Jesus, in this war Jerusalem was overthrown, the Temple was destroyed and the Black Hebrews were scattered. If the original Jews were Black, where did white Jews come from?

Intelligence Analysis index History of U.S. Military Interventions since 1890 by Dr. Zoltan Grossman The following is a partial list of U.S. military interventions from 1890 to 2014. Below the list is a Briefing on the History of U.S. The list and briefing are also available as a powerpoint presentation. This guide does not include: mobilizations of the National Guard offshore shows of naval strength reinforcements of embassy personnel the use of non-Defense Department personnel (such as the Drug Enforcement Administration) military exercises non-combat mobilizations (such as replacing postal strikers) the permanent stationing of armed forces covert actions where the U.S. did not play a command and control role the use of small hostage rescue units most uses of proxy troops U.S. piloting of foreign warplanes foreign or domestic disaster assistance military training and advisory programs not involving direct combat civic action programs and many other military activities. Versions of this list have been published on,, and numerous other websites.

Designing for the Emergence by George Pór an updated version of paper presented at the Global Brain Workshop, Brussels, July 3-5, 2001 version 01.07.26 Abstract The dual aim of this essay is to: • Identify design qualities and opportunities for optimizing our global nervous system for the emergence of web-enabled collective intelligence. • Call for a large-scale research collaboration to explore the potential of globally distributed intelligence for solving world problems and closing the gap between the human condition and human potential. Our motivation is to present a framework for the "social evolution" dimension of Global Brain research, coherent enough to attract the peer attention necessary to refine it and collaboratively develop it into a source document suitable to guide our work in that dimension. This paper is the final, updated version of my presentation at the GB workshop, complete with the graphics and references. It’s comprised of the following sections: 1. 1. 2. 4. human experience?
