Mandate Training for Engineers and Conductors

Stephanie Katelnikoff
Calgary, AB


Trains are not cars. They're not carrying knick knacks to your grandmas house. They don't have a conscience. They are mile+ long, 5,000+ ton steel snakes sporting chemicals, spent nuclear fuel and oil. They can kill, they do kill, and they kill in numbers. Hi!



My name is Stephanie. I recently underwent Canadian Pacific's "training" program to be a train conductor. It was a joke! Then, when I went to "qualify" as a train conductor, we missed the train so I "qualified" as a RAILROAD conductor riding in a PASSENGER seat of a PICK UP TRUCK driving down the HIWAY. Why? Because the government has no rules to say "hey, that's not ok". That kind of shortfall is going to get workers and the public hurt.



On only my second trip as a conductor, my train derailed and I did not know what to do. That needs to change. I'm asking for your help, in asking the government to over see and mandate what training is required to work aboard a train. As is, railway companies can give you whatever training they see fit (or maybe just economical) and send you out on a rolling bomb through busy cities and neighbourhoods if they want to. That's dangerous!



Let's show the railway companies that they are not allowed to endanger our lives, our families lives, and our children's lives like that any longer!

Bank Hackers Steal Millions via Malware
Feb 15, 2015 - 1:50 AM - by gone
All I can say is: sweeeet..

Quote:
PALO ALTO, Calif. — In late 2013, an A.T.M. in Kiev started dispensing cash at seemingly random times of day. No one had put in a card or touched a button. Cameras showed that the piles of money had been swept up by customers who appeared lucky to be there at the right moment.

But when a Russian cybersecurity firm, Kaspersky Lab, was called to Ukraine to investigate, it discovered that the errant machine was the least of the bank’s problems.

The bank’s internal computers, used by employees who process daily transfers and conduct bookkeeping, had been penetrated by malware that allowed cybercriminals to record their every move. The malicious software lurked for months, sending back video feeds and images that told a criminal group — including Russians, Chinese and Europeans — how the bank conducted its daily routines, according to the investigators.

Then the group impersonated bank officers, not only turning on various cash machines, but also transferring millions of dollars from banks in Russia, Japan, Switzerland, the United States and the Netherlands into dummy accounts set up in other countries.

Is Your Samsung TV Recording Your Conversations
Feb 09, 2015 - 4:02 PM - by US_Cybernaut
Samsung SmartTV Customers Warned Personal Conversations May Be Recorded

Voice recognition software could transmit 'personal or sensitive' information

c/p

Users of the voice recognition feature on Samsung's internet-connected SmartTV have been warned that personal conversations could be recorded and transmitted to third parties.
A sentence buried in the television's privacy policy advises users to be careful about what they say when using the software.
It says: "Samsung may collect and your device may capture voice commands and associated texts so that we can provide you with Voice Recognition features and evaluate and improve the features.
“Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party."
The warning has raised questions about whom the third party might be, how they would use the information and how the conversations are transmitted.

Crazy Parents Still Refusing to Vaccinate Their Children
Jan 31, 2015 - 9:30 PM - by gone
Quote:
The Disneyland measles outbreak has now spread to 14 states, with 98 confirmed cases. Health officials in Arizona have warned that 1,000 people could have been exposed and urged them to stay away from Super Bowl events. The White House suggested that everyone listen to scientists and vaccinate their children. And now, unvaccinated children have been sent home from some California schools.

And yet, despite all of this (and pleas from parents whose children have compromised immune systems), many California parents still don't see the need for vaccines.

The New York Times tracked down some of these parents. The paper reports:

"There is absolutely no reason to get the shot," said Crystal McDonald, whose 16-year-old daughter was one of 66 students sent home from Palm Desert High School for the next two weeks because they did not have full measles immunizations.

After researching the issue and reading information from a national anti-vaccine advocacy group, Ms. McDonald said she and her husband, a chiropractor, decided to raise their four children without vaccines. She said they ate well and had never been to the doctor, and she insisted that her daughter was healthier than many classmates. But when the school sent her home with a letter, Ms. McDonald's daughter was so concerned about missing two weeks of advanced-placement classes that she suggested simply getting a measles inoculation.

"I said, 'No, absolutely not,' " Ms. McDonald said. "I said, 'I'd rather you miss an entire semester than you get the shot.' "

In addition to McDonald, the NYT also found Kelly McMenimen, a mother in Lagunitas, CA who "meditated on it a lot" before deciding against vaccinating her son, Tobias.

She said she did not want "so many toxins" entering the slender body of a bright-eyed boy who loves math and geography.

Tobias has endured chickenpox and whooping cough, though Ms. McMenimen said the latter seemed more like a common cold. She considered a tetanus shot after he cut himself on a wire fence but decided against it: "He has such a strong immune system.

And if your eyeballs haven't popped out of your head yet, the Times also spoke to Dr. Eric Ball a pediatrician in Orange County, "where some schools report that 50 to 60 percent of their kindergartners are not fully vaccinated and that 20 to 40 percent of parents have sought a personal beliefs exemption to vaccination requirements." "Sometimes, I feel like we're practicing in the 1950s," Ball told the paper.

In the meantime, the rest of the world

Here’s some frightening honesty, courtesy of the US Congress
Jan 31, 2015 - 5:24 PM - by gone
Quote:
A member of my staff caught an obscure resolution that was introduced in the US House of Representatives last week—Resolution no. 41.

The fact that there was essentially no coverage of this Resolution really shows how the mainstream media is completely turning a blind eye to the true fiscal situation of the United States of America.

The entire point of the resolution is to say that the federal government is broke.

It can’t pay its own bills, and therefore is shouldn’t be responsible to pay anyone else’s either.

It doesn’t’ take a rocket scientists to figure out what a bankrupt government will do—just like any thief, they’ll go after easy targets first.

The easiest target of all is future generations.

They’re going to run up the debt as high as they can, which essentially means pulling future tax revenues into today. It’s the easiest tax of all, because unborn children do not vote.

The estate tax is another one to watch out for—because, like unborn children, dead people don’t vote either.

We had a great podcast yesterday about retirement savings, where there’s an easy $5 trillion treasure chest for them to raid.

And, of course, there’s the greatest tax of all, the inflation tax, which decreases the standard of living for most of the population as the cost of living rises much faster than incomes.

This Resolution is a pretty scary dose of honesty. But again, what’s even more concerning is that it was just ignored and has objectively a zero percent chance of passing.

I do encourage you to check it out though—even the government is admitting it’s finished.

I’ll quote from the Resolution now without comment and wish you a very pleasant weekend:


Whereas the Federal Government is operating at an annual deficit and is increasing its outstanding debt every year;

Whereas the Federal Government, as of January 2015, is carrying more than $18.0 trillion in debt, of which $13.0 trillion is owed to the public and $5.08 trillion is owed to Social Security and other trust funds;

Whereas foreign governments, individuals, and corporations as of October 2014 own 47 percent of Federal debt held by the public;

Whereas Social Security’s unfunded liabilities in 2014 are $10.6 trillion over 75 years and $24.9 trillion over the infinite horizon;

Whereas the Federal debt held by the public is expected to increase by more than $7 trillion from 2014 to 2024 according to the Congressional Budget Office;

Whereas more than 16 percent of the
