    Friday FARcast: Here Comes The Biometric Wave & The Implementation Of The Chip

    in Paranormal

    On today's Friday FARcast, we'll explore the new wave of biometric identification that is starting to be introduced via commecricals on TV through companies like Intel.  Facial recognition, which is just one aspect of biometric identification is being sold as a modern convenience.  Every IPhone has facial recognition capabilties built into it and that is just for starters.  Reports are hitting the news outlets that there is a plan in place to have all Americans chipped by 2017.  While these murmurs have people squirming uncomfortably about the possibility of the beast being unleashed, mandatory vaccinations, for adults and children are being pushed forward in a number of states.  Are biometrics and vaccinations linked?


    I'll be discussing this issue in the first hour.  In hour number two, I'll be jpined by my good friend, Charles Ostman.  Charles is a computer scientist, engineer and futurist.  He was the science editor at MONDO 2000 and has appeared on Art Bell's Coast-To-Coast numerous times.  Charles will be our guide into the dark corridors of a dystopian future where information, security, and surveillance are brought together under the rubric of personal convenience and complete control.


    Please join us.

    Converse: Patriots Win, Education Loses, and DRCongo's Incomplete

    in Current Events

    The New England Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks for the Superbowl championship. So many lifes lessons were at play in that game, lessons you can use for your own journey. While in the classrooom this past week, I see more and more the failings of education which could lead to a dystopian USA in the future. Overseas, everyone wants President Joseph Kabila to step down as president of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, well, and then what? Whats in DRCongo's future, more of DRC's past? And finally, is the War on Terrorism turn into War on Islam? Lets talk about it.

    Writestream Tuesday: "The Notice" with author Daniella Bova

    in Books

    Tears of Paradox author Daniella Bova returns to Writestream with Daria Anne to discuss her new release, The Notice, the second book in her series, Storms of Transformation.


    Daniella Bova was born and raised in Chester County, PA in a traditional, loving family. While she and her sister were young, their baby sister - born with Down Syndrome - died at the age of three. This traumatic experience changed their family forever.


    Painfully shy and called a "Day Dreamer" by her mom, Daniella was what some would call an "average" student. Although she had difficulty paying attention in class, at home she was an avid reader and learner. By the age of 10, she could sew by hand and machine, embroider, and knit. In the late 70s, she came of age and married her high school sweetheart.


    Years later, the pivotal events of September 11, 2001 would prompt her to see the world differently. She started paying attention to politics and national/international events, which ultimately led to the inspiration for her dystopian series.


    Join us for a great interview with Daniella Bova!
