US Nicknames and Codewords (Updated: January 18, 2014) Below is a listing of nicknames and codewords related to US Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) and Communications Security (COMSEC). Most of them are from the NSA, some are from other government or military agencies. NICKNAMES are generally unclassified. CODEWORDS are always classified and always consist of a single word. Due to very strict secrecy, it's not always clear whether we see a nickname or a codeword, but terms mentioned in public sources like job descriptions are of course unclassified nicknames. Please keep in mind that a listing like this will always be work in progress (this list has been copied on some other websites and forums, but only this one is being updated frequently!).

300+ Mind Expanding Documentaries I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues.

DARPA The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is one of the most important organizations we have in America today. While most of the country lays fast asleep to the dangers of the encroaching surveillance state, the EFF is always vigilantly at work on the front lines. In their latest article, they show that military drones are already flying all over these United States and, using information received from a FOIA lawsuit they provide important details on what is flying and where. These records, received as a result of EFF’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), come from state and local law enforcement agencies, universities and—for the first time—three branches of the U.S. military: the Air Force, Marine Corps, and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). Perhaps the scariest is the technology carried by a Reaper drone the Air Force is flying near Lincoln, Nevada and in areas of California and Utah. Full article here.
3 Censored TED Talks They Do Not Want You To See The current world order establishment has plenty to gain by keeping the people of the planet in the dark about ideas that can lead to a revolution in human consciousness. 1. Graham Hancock – The War on Consciousness Hancock's TED Talk, “The War on Consciousness”, was deliberately removed from YouTube: “Graham Hancock’s talk, again, shares a compelling and unorthodox worldview, but one that strays well beyond the realm of reasonable science. While attempting to critique the scientific worldview, he misrepresents what scientists actually think…” Chris Anderson, [TED]. Graham Hancock is the author of major international bestsellers, his books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. 2. TED also removed the recent talk by author and bio-chemist Rupert Sheldrake. 3. Entrepreneur Rick Hanauer's presentation is surrounded by controversy because after it was recorded, it was passed over for publication by TED. Related:
Clapper: I Gave 'The Least Untruthful Answer' To Wyden's 'Beating Your Wife' Question On Data Surveillance There's been a lot of coverage of the exchange between Senator Ron Wyden and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, in which Wyden asked Clapper about whether or not data on millions of Americans has been captured. Here's the exact text: Wyden: Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans? Clapper: No sir. Wyden: It does not? If you'd like to see the exchange for yourself, here you go: Last week, Clapper claimed that he thought that Wyden was only asking him about emails, even though Wyden clearly states "any type of data." ANDREA MITCHELL: Senator Wyden made quite a lot out of your exchange with him last March during the hearings. That's quite an answer. So, now we have the Director of National Intelligence lying, admitting to lying, and then blaming the questioner by making two separate false claims about his question ("it was about email" and "it was a loaded question").
E² Intervention Architecture | Da Vinci Learning Sunday, 29 September 2013 @ 20:00 How did progress take priority over human kind? How could the desire for a modern way of life that threatens our future be considered a way of life? Could it be that suburbs in Los Angeles affect the melting ice caps of Antarctica? And deforestation in the Congo affects the typhoons of Japan? Now we must face the challenges for what they are – opportunities to reinvent and redesign. E2 Intervention Architecture tracks 5 winning projects that embrace the ethical and philosophical criteria, epitomized by the prestigious Aga Khan Award for Architecture. Within an hour, the programme visits diverse global projects from a wetlands restoration project in Saudi Arabia to the revitalization of a French Colonial heritage site in Tunisia to a Bridge School in China that reconnected a community, becoming the cultural centre of the village – all this to underline there is one world, facing the same challenges in a shared future that can be made better.
