CDC Warns Public to Prepare for 'Zombie Apocalypse'

By Joshua Rhett Miller

Published May 18, 2011 | FoxNews.com

Are you prepared for the impending zombie invasion?

That's the question posed by the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention in a Monday blog posting gruesomely titled, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse." And while it's no joke, CDC officials say it's all about emergency preparation.

"There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for," the posting reads. "Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That's right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you'll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency."

The post, written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan, instructs readers how to prepare for "flesh-eating zombies" much like how they appeared in Hollywood hits like "Night of the Living Dead" and video games like Resident Evil. Perhaps surprisingly, the same steps you'd take in preparation for an onslaught of ravenous monsters are similar to those suggested in advance of a hurricane or pandemic.

"First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house," the posting continues. "This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored)."

We all know what would happen if our supermarket shelfs were emtpty, if our greenbacks were uselessin short if our food supplies were eradicted.
  Anyone who has been subjected to starvation is well aware, of the incredible suffering and the basic  need to suvive, the knowing that death is immiment without substance. I know the feeling, after days without food, my squad survived on dog meat. I don't recomend it!
 It is typical of our hierarchy to dish out names, lables, I tend to beleive they have crews of lable makers.
 Zombie Apocalypse." A popular Hollywood theme, dontya know.
 My point, should there come a day when large citys are without food, animals will be the first to go, guess what would been the menu if people are starving to death.
 My point is these label givers may give it this rediculous FN name, but underneath this BS there remains the fact if a c\atastophy should take place, cannibalism would insure survival. However sickning you may find this subject, please don't dismiss the reality. Under the pretext of Zombies.
Sick subject, OK, I know, reality is to some degree also.

Everyone needs to understand who this trilateral terrorist treasonous piece of eugenics doo-doo is!



Trilateral Terrorist Ali S. Khan
Assistant Surgeon General and Director, Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response
[Sampling of his crimes: Torture via bioterrorism experimentation and implementation, Crimes against his oath of office, Crimes against Humanity, Creating Mass Panic, Obstruction of Justice to all bioterror threats for the past 10 years at least, Engaging in Nazi Eugenics Experiments, Planning mass depopulations via Cancer/AIDS/Swine Flu Vaccines, Violations of the Illegal US Patriot Act, Violations of basic humanity]
http://www.cdc.gov/media/subtopic/sme/khan.htm

Rear Admiral Ali S. Khan, MD, MPH, began leading CDC's Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response in August 2010. Most recently he was the Deputy Director of the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) at CDC. Dr. Khan is an Assistant Surgeon General and joined CDC and the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps in 1991 as an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officer. Over the past decade, he has responded to and led numerous high profile domestic and international public health emergencies including hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, Ebola hemorrhagic fever, monkeypox, avian influenza, Rift Valley fever, avian influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), the Asian Tsunami, and the initial public health response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Dr. Khan's professional career has focused on bioterrorism, global health, and emerging infectious diseases. He served as one of the main architects of CDC's public health bioterrorism preparedness program which upgraded local, state, and national public health systems to detect and rapidly respond to bioterrorism. He designed CDC's joint global field epidemiology and laboratory training program. Dr. Khan was an integral part of the design and implementation of the President's Malaria Initiative and has been engaged in guinea worm and polio eradication. He also proposed BioPHusion as a new public health initiative to improve knowledge exchange for all public health practitioners.

Dr. Khan received his MD from Downstate Medical Center in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY, and completed a joint residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor before joining CDC. He has a Masters of Public Health from Emory University where he is an adjunct professor. He has over 150 peer-reviewed publications, textbook chapters, editorials, and brief communiqués. He has consulted intensively for multiple U.S. organizations including NASA, Ministries of Health, and the World Health Organization.



He does not give a shit about the United States, he is a globalist scumbag depopulation guru who has a higher clearance than the President. His warning about "Zombie Apocalypse" is a Psy-Op, but it also includes their plans to release chemtrailing poisons throughout which will cause mass hysteria and confusion. This will result in the public looking like they are zombies. He is in the know, he wants the people affected with their planned attack on humanity to be at civil war with others. The years of planning in this (conditioning has been going on since at least House of Death video game and has climaxed with the insane jasmine revolutions which are a complete failure) is 100% treason. How else could anyone describe it?

Good morning Chairman Pallone, Ranking Member Shimkus, and members of the Subcommittee. I am Ali Khan, an Assistant Surgeon General and acting Deputy Director of the National Center for Emerging & Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (proposed), at the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). Thank you for the invitation to address the Subcommittee on the available data as it relates to antimicrobial use in food animals. Today I will expand upon the recent testimony before this Subcommittee by CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden, and describe: 1) CDC’s role in monitoring antimicrobial resistance in humans as it relates to the food supply, 2) data available from North America, 3) data available from Europe, and 4) why appropriate antimicrobial use is critical to protecting human and animal health, as outlined in the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recently released draft guidance.

Background

Antimicrobial agents1 are used to treat infections by different disease-causing microorganisms, including bacteria, mycobacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. In the vast majority of cases where antimicrobials are used, the microorganisms have found a way to evade or resist the antimicrobial agent.2 Resistance occurs wherever antimicrobials are used 3-- in the community, on the farm, and in healthcare settings. Antimicrobial resistance is a global problem, and our most significant global health threats include multi-drug resistant tuberculosis and drug-resistant malaria. Today, however, I will focus on a specific antimicrobial resistance, antibiotic-resistant bacteria as they relate to food animals.

Many of the bacteria in food that cause disease are found in the intestinal tract of animals or people. Healthy food-producing animals commonly carry bacteria that can cause illness in humans, including Salmonella and Campylobacter.

When an ill person is treated with an antibiotic to which the bacteria is resistant, the antibiotic will not help and may even make the illness worse. In addition, sub-therapeutic use may be more likely to contribute to the development of resistant bacteria. The illness may last longer, be more serious, or more expensive to treat.

In 1989, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published a report which concluded that the committee could not find direct evidence that subtherapeutic use of penicillin and tetracycline in animal feed was associated with a human health consequence.4 The committee was unable to distinguish the human health consequence of subtherapuetic use in animals from the widespread therapeutic use of penicillin and tetracycline in humans and animals (primarily due to a lack of data on quantities of antimicrobials used). In 2002, the Alliance for Prudent Use of Antimicrobials (APUA) FAAIR Report (Facts about Antimicrobials in Animals and the Impact on Resistance) concluded that antimicrobial use in animals does contribute to human antimicrobial resistance and results in an adverse human health consequence.5 The committee concluded: “the elimination of nontherapeutic use of antimicrobials in food animals and in agriculture will lower the burden of antimicrobial resistance in the environment, with consequent benefits to human and animal health.”

To protect both human and animal health, appropriate antibiotic use is encouraged for food- producing animals, which is similar to actions associated with use in humans. CDC’s activities related to resistance from antibiotic use in humans have focused on two goals: preventing the emergence and spread of resistant bacteria, and increasing appropriate antibiotic use to reduce the emergence of resistance. In order to minimize the selective pressure of antibiotics, it is important to make sure that when antibiotics are used, they are used appropriately, for either humans or animals. Through population-based surveillance, CDC is able to provide national estimates of disease burden and to track changes in disease burden over time for both resistant community-associated and healthcare-associated bacterial infections. CDC’s educational campaign Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work has reduced antibiotic use for acute respiratory tract infections among both children and adults.6 Parallel to antibiotic use in humans, movement toward appropriate antibiotic use for food-producing animals is needed, as discussed in FDA’s draft guidance. .

Antimicrobial resistant pathogens can move through the food supply. The use of certain antibiotics in animal feed has been a major driver for some drug-resistant organisms, such as vancomycin-resistant enterococci.7 There is also evidence of an association between drug use in food animals and the emergence of resistance in some more common enteric pathogens like Salmonella.8 Drug-resistant infections in humans could emerge from exposure to bacteria harbored by animals that are pathogenic to humans, or the genes that cause that resistance could move from bacteria harbored by animals to those bacteria harbored by humans.

NARMS The National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) for Enteric Bacteria was established in 1996 for the purpose of

1) monitoring trends in the prevalence of antibiotic resistance among bacteria isolated from humans, retail meats (began 2002), and food animals;

2) disseminating public health information on antibiotic resistance; 3) promoting interventions that reduce resistance among enteric bacteria; and 4) informing the approval process for the use of antibiotic agents in veterinary medicine. NARMS is a collaboration among CDC (human samples), the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Veterinary Medicine (retail meats), and the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Research Services (animal samples).

CDC’s Role in NARMS For the human component of NARMS, participating health departments forward every twentieth non-Typhi Salmonella isolate, every Salmonella Typhi, every twentieth Shigella isolate, and every twentieth E. coli O157 isolate received at their public health laboratories to CDC for antibiotic susceptibility testing.9 Sites participating in FoodNet, the Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network, also submit a representative sample of Campylobacter isolates from humans to CDC for susceptibility testing.10

In addition, NARMS participates in outbreak investigations involving these bacteria and conducts further studies on resistance mechanisms. 9Antimicrobial susceptibility testing currently involves the determination of the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for 17 antimicrobial agents: amikacin, ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, apramycin, cefoxitin, ceftiofur, ceftriaxone, cephalothin, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, imipenem, kanamycin, nalidixic acid, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole, tetracycline, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.

10 FoodNet sites submit all Campylobacter isolates (Georgia, Maryland, New Mexico, Oregon, Tennessee), every other isolate (California, Colorado, Connecticut, New York), or every fifth isolate (Minnesota) to NARMS based on the burden of campylobacteriosis in each site. Susceptibility testing of Campylobacter is performed to determine the MICs for nine antimicrobial agents: azithromycin, ciprofloxacin, clindamycin, erythromycin, florfenicol, gentamicin, nalidixic acid, telithromycin, and tetracycline.

NARMS data for human isolates have been collected continually since 1996, which makes trend analysis possible; the data provide information about patterns of emerging resistance, which in turn guide mitigation efforts. Because antibiotic use in food-producing animals may result in antibiotic resistance among bacteria that can be transmitted to humans through the food supply, antimicrobial resistance data from humans are important for the development of public health regulatory policy for the use of drugs in food-producing animals.

In addition to NARMS, CDC has developed a prudent use educational program called “Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work on the Farm” to promote appropriate antibiotic use in food producing farm animals. CDC funds and provides technical assistance for several state-based efforts to educate veterinarians and food producers including those in the dairy and beef industries. Educational modules have been developed for use in veterinary professional curricula, which are case-based and are tailored for given animal species and/or food animal production type.

North American Data

Non-typhoidal Salmonella causes approximately 1.4 million cases of disease in humans in the United States each year. Patients with complicated or severe infections are treated with fluoroquinolones or cephalosporins, and of these two drug classes, only cephalosporins are approved for treatment of children with these infections. Since NARMS began surveillance in 1996, cephalosporin resistance among Salmonella isolated from humans has increased significantly, and a similar resistance also has been found among Salmonella isolated from livestock and retail meats. In many cases, the same types of bacteria and genetic mechanisms of resistance are found in both human and animal sources.

For example, studies related to Salmonella as both a human and animal pathogen, including many studies in the United States, have demonstrated that (1) use of antibiotic agents in food animals results in antibiotic resistant bacteria in food animals, (2) resistant bacteria are present in the food supply and are transmitted to humans, and (3) resistant bacterial infections result in adverse human health consequences (e.g., increased hospitalization11). The following examples demonstrate the movement of resistant pathogens through the food supply, and exacerbate our concern about the link between the use of antibiotics in animals and eventual human health effects:

o Multi-drug resistant (MDR) Salmonella Newport has emerged, which has caused numerous outbreaks where the source was ground beef. Ground beef samples have been found with the same molecular fingerprint as the human strain.12

o As described in scientific articles published this year, Cephalosporin-resistant Salmonella Heidelberg has emerged among humans, and molecular fingerprinting indicates that strains responsible for human infections are indistinguishable from cephalosporin-resistant Salmonella Heidelberg isolated from retail poultry sources.13

These findings support work done by the Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance (CIPARS) that demonstrated a strong correlation between cephalosporin-resistant Salmonella Heidelberg isolated from retail chicken and the incidence of cephalosporin-resistant Salmonella Heidelberg infections in humans across Canada. CIPARS also published this year that in Quebec, changes in cephalosporin-resistance in chicken and human Salmonella Heidelberg and chicken E. coli strains appeared to be related to changes in ceftiofur use in poultry hatcheries.14

Studies of another bacterium, Campylobacter, also demonstrate movement of resistant pathogens through the food supply. Campylobacter is one of the leading causes of culture-confirmed foodborne bacterial disease in humans in the United States, and consumption of poultry has been shown to be an important risk factor for Campylobacter infection. Fluoroquinolones and macrolides are the drug classes of choice for treating Campylobacter infections. Following the approval of fluoroquinolones for use in poultry, resistance to this class of drugs among human Campylobacter isolates rose sharply, to more than 20%.15 FDA has since withdrawn approval of fluoroquinolones for use in poultry, and NARMS continues to monitor Campylobacter from humans, retail meats and food animals for fluoroquinolone resistance.

Persistence of fluoroquinolone-resistant Campylobacter in domestic food animal and retail meat sources suggests that these strains may be able to compete well with susceptible strains in food animal environments, even in the absence of antimicrobial selective pressure.16 Additional studies are underway to better understand the contribution of foreign travel to fluoroquinolone- resistant campylobacteriosis and estimate the burden of illness associated with domestically- acquired infections.

The Danish Experience Multiple studies about the Danish experience have demonstrated the link between non- therapeutic use of antimicrobial agents in food-producing animals, particularly swine and broiler

In 1995, the Danish government banned the non-therapeutic use of avoparcin for growth promotion in Denmark; the European Union (EU) adopted the same ban in 1997. In 1998, Denmark banned use of virginiamycin for growth promotion. Subsequently, the Danish cattle and broiler industries voluntarily stopped the non-therapeutic use of all antibiotics for growth promotion in 1998, while the Danish swine industry through voluntary and regulatory action stopped all non-therapeutic use of antibiotics for growth promotion in swine above 35 kg by February 1998 and for all age groups by December 1999. The EU phased in bans for certain drugs in 1999, and then voted to phase out all non-therapeutic use of antibiotics for growth promotion in 2002, which began 2006.

Since the stoppage of non-therapeutic use in Denmark, therapeutic use in swine has increased. However, total antimicrobial consumption in swine has decreased from 100 to 49 milligrams of antimicrobials per kilogram of meat produced, a 50% reduction. In addition, stopping the use of various non-therapeutic antibiotic growth promoters (e.g., avilamycin, avoparcin, spiramycin, tylosin, virginiamycin) has resulted in a major reduction in antimicrobial resistance as measured among several different bacterial species in food animals and food. Furthermore, resistance to these drugs among Enterococcus isolated from broilers, swine, and the meat from these animals decreased.

In 2003, the World Health Organization (WHO) could not determine the ban’s direct and total effect on antimicrobial resistance in humans because of limited data.23

However, more recent susceptibility data from enterococci isolated from healthy persons in the community show a decline in resistance of enterococci isolated from healthy people in the community in Denmark following the ban on antimicrobial growth promoters. 24 Production and economic impacts from the ban are described in a 2003 WHO report. Mortality among weaning age pigs increased several years before as well as a few years after non- therapeutic use stopped, but has drastically decreased in recent years, indicating that the termination had no effect on swine mortality. In addition, the WHO reports that: “Overall, total volume of pork production in Denmark continued to increase in the period following the termination of antimicrobial growth promoters... The net costs associated with productivity losses incurred by removing antimicrobial growth promoters from pig and poultry production were estimated at 7.75 DKK (1.04 €) per pig produced and no net cost for poultry. This translates into an increase in pig production costs of just over 1%.”25

In summary, non-therapeutic use has been shown to lead to an increase in resistant strains in animals in Denmark. The Danish experience demonstrates that it is possible to stop these uses, reduce overall use of antibiotics in animals, reduce resistant circulating bacteria that can infect humans, and not have industry or consumers significantly affected by decreased
production or increased costs.

Conclusion

Antibiotics are a critical asset in our nation’s defense against infectious disease, and we need to take strong measures to ensure that we maintain their effectiveness. Since antimicrobial agents were first used widely in the last century, almost every type of clinically relevant bacteria has developed antibiotic resistance. This Subcommittee, and my colleagues at HHS, have rightly focused on elements of a comprehensive strategy –avoiding resistance that stems from overuse in both humans and animals, and developing new antibiotics. CDC continues to take steps to minimize inappropriate use of antibiotics in humans, and today’s hearing is an important opportunity to highlight the need for parallel steps to minimize inappropriate antibiotic use in animals.
 
As a nation, we must do more to respond to this growing problem. CDC supports FDA’s approach, as described in recent guidance, that the use of antimicrobials should be limited to protecting human and animal health. Purposes other than the protection of animal or human health should not be considered judicious use.

Thank you again for the invitation.


NOTES

1 Antimicrobial agents or antimicrobials are general terms for the drugs, chemicals, or other substances that either kill or slow the growth of microbes. Among the antimicrobial agents in use today are antibiotic drugs (which kill bacteria), antiviral agents (which kill viruses), antifungal agents (which kill fungi), and antiparisitic drugs (which kill parasites).  An antibiotic is a type of antimicrobial agent made from a mold or a bacterium that kills, or slows the growth of other microbes, specifically bacteria. Examples include penicillin, streptomycin, and other antibiotics discussed below.

6 CDC’s Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work program is a comprehensive public health effort to help reduce the rise of antibiotic resistance. Partnerships with public and private health care providers, pharmacists, a variety of retail outlets, and the media result in broad distribution of the campaign’s multi-cultural/multi-lingual health education materials for the public and health care providers. Through Get Smart, CDC develops clinical guidance and principles for appropriate antibiotic use to prevent and control antibiotic resistant upper respiratory infections. Data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) confirm the campaign’s impact on reducing antibiotic use for acute respiratory tract infections among both children and adults. There has been a 20 percent decrease in prescribing for upper respiratory infections (in 1997 the prescription rate for otitis media in children < 5 years of age was 69 prescriptions per 100 children compared to 47.5 per 100 children in 2007) and a 13 percent decrease in prescribing overall for all office visits (overall antibiotic prescribing dropped from 13.8 prescriptions per 100 office visits to 12.0 prescriptions per 100 office visits comparing 1997-98 to 2005-06). The Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work campaign contributed to surpassing the Healthy People 2010 target goal to reduce the number of antibiotics prescribed for ear infections in children under age 5.

CDC Warns Public to Prepare for 'Zombie Apocalypse'

By Joshua Rhett Miller

Published May 18, 2011 | FoxNews.com

Are you prepared for the impending zombie invasion?

That's the question posed by the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention in a Monday blog posting gruesomely titled, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse." And while it's no joke, CDC officials say it's all about emergency preparation.

"There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for," the posting reads. "Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That's right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you'll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency."

The post, written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan, instructs readers how to prepare for "flesh-eating zombies" much like how they appeared in Hollywood hits like "Night of the Living Dead" and video games like Resident Evil. Perhaps surprisingly, the same steps you'd take in preparation for an onslaught of ravenous monsters are similar to those suggested in advance of a hurricane or pandemic.

"First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house," the posting continues. "This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored)."

1.) no mention of ammunition and being self-armed, even though he did mention "emergency kit".

2.) only a COMPLETE AND UTTER IDIOT would go through heavily infested zombie land to find a "safe refugee" camp. Not only this guy is utterly retarded, he is also a VERY BIG CON and government puppet.

The aim of the article is to encourage people to go to GOVERNMENT camps should a zombie plague actually occur even IF IT RISKS YOUR LIFE! And sure, you'll get your "care" provided they don't shoot you on sight or make a "guinea pig" outta you!

If you take a defensive position where zombies can't reach you but KNOW that you're there, that is also your death sentence as they will wait for you till the bitter end, in which you will run out of all your supplies. So you have to keep moving. And the only way to do that is if you're armed (I would prefer other weapons than guns as they would make a noise that would attract a lot of attention...unless you're using a silencer).

And to top that off, how interesting he mentions the movies "Resident Evil" and "Dawn of the Dead" where it actually SHOWS WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER TRUST THE GOVERNMENT!!! lol....man is this guy for real?

It's obviously a psy op.  They can't make zombies..

And how would you know that? If they can make all sorts of sophisticated viruses, such as the AIDS from the 50's and 60s's, then who knows what they've got now.

Wait a minute, "refugee camp"? I guess if there is an emergency so great that we would need "refugee camps" who, I wonder, would be running them, FEMA?

Yes, this is quite a psy-op... Why didn't they just say "zombie free refugee FEMA camp"?

They do not even have to "MAKE ZOMBIES", they just need to convince people that zombies exist just like Rockefeller convinced America that Mars was attacking us. People got killed and Rockefeller killed them from that psy-op. Also, they can strain our senses via various deceptive bells and whistles, holograms, etc. Darren Brown exposed how this can be done with technical devices many Americans use 10+ hours a day:

BY Kit EatonMon Apr 11, 2011

Remember how the Beastmaster could see through the eyes of his pet eagle? DARPA does. And it's pursuing augmented reality goggles tech that'll let troops see through the eyes of a nearby unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in order to more accurately target its weapons.

The issue of accurate targeting and weapons-fire has a renewed interest in the wake of NATO mistakenly destroying rebel armor in Libya rather than Gadhaffi's hardware, but it's never been an easy task. One of the very best ways to deliver today's smartest weapons is to have an "eyes-on" soldier in the field near the target relaying real time data up to the aircraft that's about to drop a bomb--but this situation is not often practical or desirable and can be dangerous for both the soldier and the incoming aircraft.

"Smart" weapons controllers are typically very remote from the battlefield and may not have super-accurate or up-to-date information, thus risking innocent people being killed. A stiff bureaucracy aims to ensure these aircraft target correctly and minimize collateral damage, but those delays can endanger friendly troops' lives. To find a medium, DARPA is trying to fast-track new digital systems that give local troops direct access to battlefield data that could aid with weapon targeting.

One way DARPA sees the system working is via a modified Vuzix video-goggles device, and it recently funded the small firm to develop the technology. Vuzix's goggles currently offer a "personal cinema" experience thanks to tiny screens and clever optics contained in the eyewear--the effect of donning them is to give the viewer the experience of looking at a much larger screen that's much farther away. But Vuzix is helping DARPA with an Augmented Reality version that includes head-tracking technology. When a solider puts such headgear on, he would get real time video and data from a battlefield computer overlaid on his usual view of the world--letting him build a more accurate mental picture of where a target is and how best to fire a weapon. The goggles could even tell him which air assets are nearby, bearing which weapons, and thus result in more accurate destruction of enemy assets, less risk to friendly forces, and fewer civilian deaths.

It's essentially the same kind of targeting-info display you've seen in Terminator and any number of other science-fiction films, just applied using today's technology--and it's tech that's adapted for the lightweight, long-battery-life, gaming and smartphone market too.

War: now even more like a computer game.

By Jeremy Hsu Posted 01.11.2010 at 4:32 pm

DARPA's dreamers and brainiacs have set their sights on a new technology for the U.S. military -- high-tech binoculars or goggles that would supposedly have the ability to find the not-so-proverbial needle in a haystack. The Register pointed out the U.S. Department of Defense proposal issued last week. The Fine Detail Optical Surveillance (FDOS) technology would provide "ultra high-resolution 3D images for rapid, in-field identification of a diverse set of targets." Such specs could also supposedly work for either individual soldiers or with aerial drones, so that warfighters can spot moving targets at many different ranges and resolutions. We imagine this won't require the goofy 3D glasses needed for viewing Hollywood fare such as Avatar. The proposal translates the usual needle-in-a-haystack saying into amazing literal bureaucratese. We'll refer you to the statement below rather than try to describe it:

"The program can be described as developing the technology and systems analogous to that required for the rapid imaging and identification, without the need for scanning or focusing of the optical receiver, of a needle moving along the surface of a haystack, where the location and type of needle on the haystack is uncertain."

The programs that DARPA runs often result in some of the coolest hardware and gear for military and civilian use being invented. One of the cool things that DARPA and its contractors have been working on are holographic goggles that give soldiers a bit of augmented reality on the battlefield. The goggles look more like sunglasses to me and have some really cool features. They will be able to interface with drones flying overhead to give the solider details on what the drone sees and what the drone is firing at. That capability will mean that the solider can get the intelligence that the drone sees directly without waiting for someone else to offer the report. Another cool feature is that the goggles could tell the solider whether that jet or helicopter on the horizon is friend or foe. The glasses were developed in cooperation with Vuzix, the same company that makes the video glasses for consumers. They would use a head tracker to know where the wearer is looking and could tell you things like the jet is a friendly F-16 at 21,000 feet, 30 miles out in theory.

Darpa’s Hologram Goggles Will Unleash Drone Hell on CDC's fake ZOMBIESl
http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2011/04/holograms-bring-hell/
By Noah Shachtman  April 11, 2011  |  7:00 am

The Pentagon’s mad-science arm wants robotic death-from-above, on demand. And the key to getting it done just might be holograms. Let me explain. Right now, authorizing and targeting air strikes is a process that’s sometimes bureaucratic, and sometimes dangerous as hell. Bureaucratic as in the Stanley McChrystal phase of the Afghanistan war, when it took a gaggle of lawyers, intelligence analysts, air controllers, and commanders at multiple layers to put steel on target. The result was fewer civilian casualties — but more U.S. troops, locked in firefights without air support. Dangerous as hell as in the Libya war, where NATO jets are accidentally offing Libyan rebels with such alarming regularity that the opposition forces are now painting their vehicles’ roofs pink, to distinguish them from Gadhafi’s rides.

Darpa believes there might be a single technological fix to both problems: Give a single guy on the ground a direct data link to the drone (or manned plane) circling above. That would eliminate the multilayered, bureaucratic approach, in which information is often passed through IM windows and static-ridden radio connections. That same lone “Joint Terminal Attack Controller,” or JTAC, might be low-profile enough to slip into a situation like Libya without causing too much of an international ruckus. The program to make this all happen is called Persistent Close Air Support, or PCAS. And the goal is to give that controller the ability to “request and control near-instantaneous airborne fire support.” Darpa and the Air Force Research Lab recently handed out big contracts to the usual suspects — Northrop Grumman and Raytheon — for the next phase of the PCAS project. But the military also gave a million bucks to the relatively tiny Vuzix Corp. of Rochester, New York. Which is a little odd, at first blush, because Vuzix is an eyewear company, specializing in augmented reality specs.

But a little augmented reality may be just what a JTAC needs, in order to call in those airstrikes on his own. Rather than staring down at a bunch of maps and computer screens — and calling up intelligence analysts at headquarters for more info — it’d be better (and faster, and less prone to error) if he could get all of that data right on his augmented reality goggles. Oh, and if there was an integrated head-tracker, so the attached computer could basically see what the JTAC sees. “It is all about speeding up the CAS [close air support] mission and eliminating friendly fire issues that can occur if the user on the ground may not have the whole picture of what is around them,” Vuzix executive Stephen Glaser tells Danger Room. “The head tracker knows where the user is looking, so the information the user is seeing changes as he moves or turns his head. Theoretically you could look up in the sky and a little green triangle would appear telling you, you have an F-16 30 miles out at 21,000 feet. It could also tell you what type of ordnance the plane was carrying, so you could make a quick decision if that plane would be appropriate for the mission.” Some of this can be done today with pilots’ heads-up displays. But those require so much power and light, a JTAC would need to lug around an extra 8 pounds of batteries to make it work. (And it still wouldn’t work in direct sunlight.) That’s where the holograms come in. Vuzix’s setup uses a more-or-less traditional microdisplay, then mates that up to a flat piece of glass called an optical waveguide. The light from the display travels down the glass and bounces around inside the glass parallel flats. Those beams are directed to holographic film, which bounces the image to the eye. If the plan works, the system will be tiny — just 3 mm thick. And when the display is off, it’ll be totally see-through. Glaser notes: “This will ultimately allow us to design the display right into a pair of sunglasses, so no one will know you are even wearing a display.” Which could make the goggles good for civilians, as well as troops ordering in a robotic, lethal hail.

All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

It could also tell you what type of ordnance the plane was carrying, so you could make a quick decision if that plane would be appropriate for the mission.” Some of this can be done today with pilots’ heads-up displays. But those require so much power and light, a JTAC would need to lug around an extra 8 pounds of batteries to make it work. (And it still wouldn’t work in direct sunlight.) That’s where the holograms come in. Vuzix’s setup uses a more-or-less traditional microdisplay, then mates that up to a flat piece of glass called an optical waveguide. The light from the display travels down the glass and bounces around inside the glass parallel flats. Those beams are directed to holographic film, which bounces the image to the eye. If the plan works, the system will be tiny — just 3 mm thick. And when the display is off, it’ll be totally see-through. Glaser notes: “This will ultimately allow us to design the display right into a pair of sunglasses, so no one will know you are even wearing a display.” Which could make the goggles good for civilians, as well as troops ordering in a robotic, lethal hail.


Where are zombies involved in any of those things? I think it would be easier for the government to keep up the terrorist boogeyman. I think the whole zombie article thing is just to keep people afraid of EVERYTHING even if it is based on pure fantasy (just like al Qaeda, huh?)

These are "AGMENTED REALITY" goggles. They can be programmed to show people as Zombies, as Al-CIA-duh, as reptilians, as school teachers, whatever. Any soldier that puts on "AUGMENTED REALITY" goggles has signed over his free will to the Pentagon. They also use "friendly fire" as a Problem/Reaction/Solution symptom when friendly fire is ordered by the Pentagon on dissidents like Pat Tillman and many others.

Re: CDC Psy-OP: Go to FEMA Camps to be Safe from 'Zombie Apocalypse'

They do not even have to "MAKE ZOMBIES", they just need to convince people that zombies exist just like Rockefeller convinced America that Mars was attacking us. People got killed and Rockefeller killed them from that psy-op. Also, they can strain our senses via various deceptive bells and whistles, holograms, etc. Darren Brown exposed how this can be done with technical devices many Americans use 10+ hours a day:

Additionally, all soldiers during "disasters" or whatever will be wearing special DARPA goggles which will tell them who is a "friend" and who is a "foe" based on billions of calculations including biometrics; real time 3-D/360/24/7 surveillance by satellites, RFID accumulators, facial recognizers, body movement profiling, heat resonance indicators, , GPS systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, etc.; DARPA files on individuals, node analysis, historical analytics, and predictive programming. It is a simple tweek of the programming to just introduce a normal activity as a behavior of a "ZOMBIE" and the soldiers will be tricked into believing it. And it will be a lot easier to do this when the head of the CDC says that ZOMBIES ARE A CREDIBLE THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY. Derrrrrr

Sony converts whole room into virtual reality
http://www.rawstory.com/rawreplay/2011/05/sony-converts-whole-room-into-virtual-reality/
Posted on 05.23.11
By Stephen C. Webster

During a recent technology demonstration, Sony engineers showed off a striking application of a type of virtual reality that’s probably better known as “augmented reality.”

By overlaying 3D graphics onto the real world, a computer can make objects more informative, more useful or more entertaining. And in this case, Sony managed to turn the whole room into an augmented reality paradise with a lush tree canopy and birds flying overhead.

Sony’s latest augmented reality tech is different than other recent offerings in that it does not require a predetermined marker or place-holder to project 3D graphics onto the real world.

This video may be in Japanese, but you don’t have to understand a word to marvel at the technology being demonstrated.

This video is from electronics manufacturer Sony, published to YouTube on May 20, 2011.

Epic of Gilgamesh: Tablet VI
Those creatures which are dead yet still moving" can be traced all the way back to the Epic Of Gilgamesh and can be seen currently in the current cultural mythology of movies, books, and other media.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is possibly the oldest written story on Earth. It was carved into stone tablets; this ancient Sumerian text is the first example of the undead in mythology. This epic tale, being the first recorded myth of humanity, contains the first instance of the human question of what happens after death, asked in a way that shows that the Sumerians had created the idea of an underworld, in which the dead resided. The following text is from tablet six, in which Ishtar asks her father Anu for the Bull of Heaven and if she is refused she will unleash the undead upon the world.

"Ishtar spoke to her father, Anu, saying:
'Father, give me the Bull of Heaven,
so he can kill Gilgamesh in his dwelling.
If you do not give me the Bull of Heaven,
I will knock down the Gates of the Netherworld,
I will smash the door posts, and leave the doors flat down,
and will let the dead go up to eat the living!
And the dead will outnumber the living!'."
(Epic of Gilgamesh: Tablet VI)

The mention of the dead "eat[ing] the living" (Epic of Gilgamesh: Tablet VI) is an amazing tie between the ancient myth of the undead and the current myth of the undead. This could be currently compared to more recent undead myths, as seen in George Romero's "Living Dead" movies, in which the walking dead feast on the flesh of the living. In George Romero's movie "Dawn of the Dead" the subtitle of the movie was "when there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth", in Lucio Fulci's "The Gates of Hell" the subtitle of the movie was "when the moon turns to blood. The dead will walk the earth"; the ancient concept of the gates of the underworld opening up to unleash the undead is seen today in our current mythology.

world’s oldest zombie apocalypse?

This just might be the world’s oldest record of the idea of a “zombie apocalypse.”  In the Epic of Gilgamesh (standard version, as translated by Stephanie Dalley in Myths from Mesopotamia), Ishtar seeks Gilgamesh’s hand in marriage, but Gilgamesh, knowing Ishtar’s history with men, declines the invitation.  Ishtar is furious, and asks her father Anu to send a fierce bull to attack Gilgamesh.  When he refuses, she threatens him.  Send the bull, she says, or else

I shall set my face toward the infernal regions,
I shall raise up the dead, and they will eat the living,
I will make the dead outnumber the living!

(p. 80) So, even if the word zombie comes from voudou, the idea of undead folk eating the living and leaving the surviving “normals” a minority is really old.  As old as literature itself.

Is it any wonder that DARPA is manufacturing "flesh eating" cyborg soldiers?

The elite love their mythology, especially when it is so [deliberately] deeply rooted in our popular culture.
