Bill De Blasio States New York City is Safer due to Releasing Inmates Early; FACT CHECKED

In a press conference today, New York City mayor Bill De Blasio said:

We now have fewer people in our jails than any time since WW2, and we are safer for it and better for it.

Bill De Blasio

Fact checked; The city is not safer, it’s actually the opposite:

New York City shootings are up 130% compared to this time last year. When averaging all metrics, crime is up roughly 200% compared to this time last year.

50 of the 1500 inmates released early already got caught committing crime again. The epidemic is amid New York City’s recent police de-funding measures, as a part of the war on police and Black Lives Matter movement.


Did Joe Biden Pick Elizabeth Warren for VP Way Back in April?

As you know, Election Day is right around the corner and Democratic candidate Joe Biden has not announced his choice for VP. When I saw someone on Reddit claiming that Joe Biden had already picked Elizabeth Warren, I had to check it out. The post was titled “Joe Biden will pick Elizabeth Warren as his running mate”.

In the post, it states that two domain registrant’s named “Joe Biden” and “Elizabeth Warren” registered for the same domain “” on the same day, April 19, 2020:

Armed with a heavy sense of skepticism, I googled the website that was mentioned in the screenshot to see it myself. Once the page was pulled up, I typed in “Joe Biden” and “Elizabeth Warren” not expecting much. To my surprise, registrant’s “Joe Biden” and “Elizabeth Warren” did in fact register “” with Google LLC on April 19th, 2020.

Conclude what you want from this information, but it is an interesting coincidence at the very least.


Cow Farts Hurt the Environment; Burger King is Working to Reduce Them

Under the Restaurant Brands for Good initiative, Burger King wants to “advance the issue of sustainability in the food service industry” by reducing cow farts. Though it’s not just the methane filled cow farts that Burger King is looking to reduce; Restaurant Brands International, Burger King’s owner, has listed a number of initiatives set in place for the next decade.

Per “We are also making a long-term commitment to support the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, and evaluated where Restaurant Brands International can contribute and focus resources to help drive the greatest impact.”

“This process identified our ten priority topics, which form the three key pillars of Food, Planet, and People & Communities . We will focus on these pillars as we work to make an impact in the industry and bring our sustainability vision to life.”

Here’s the highlights, taken from the companies website:

This new initiative is after the vegan food brand Impossible Foods successfully entered the fast food industry, specifically at Burger King where the “Impossible Whopper” has seen success.

Here’s a research video Burger King tweeted following the initial announcement:


Tech CEO Chopped Up with a Power Saw

  • 33 year old Fahim Saleh was found dead in his $2.25 million dollar apartment.
  • His body was chopped up and dismembered with a power saw.
  • NYPD suspects financial motive behind the murder.

The footage from the apartment building appears to show the suspected killer carrying a bag, waiting to enter the elevator with the victim, sources said.

The victim gives the suspect a puzzled look during an exchange as they ride up together. As soon as the victim steps out into his apartment, the suspect can be seen attacking him, according to sources.

One law enforcement source said the crime scene looked like a “professional” killing because almost no blood was left behind and the apartment was not looted.

Another source added it appeared that the killer had been “interrupted.”

“It didn’t look like the perp was done,” the source said.

Police were later seen questioning a sobbing woman — whom sources identified as the victim’s cousin — in the lobby of the building.

The victim’s cousin found his torso exposed in the living room alongside the construction bags and the saw, upon checking on him Tuesday after not hearing from him. Per New York Post

Who was he?

Fahim founded Gokada, the Nigeria-based motorcycle ridesharing company, in 2018 and took over as CEO last year. He recently helped transition Gorkada to delivery service. He also launched venture capital firm Adventure Capital in 2018 and served as CEO at KickBack Apps, an entertainment app company.

Saleh co-founded ride-hailing company Pathao in his parents’ home country of Bangladesh in 2015, calling it the “most well-funded startup in Bangladesh, recently valued at over $100MM.”

He also said he was an investor in Picap, Colombia’s largest motorcycle ride-sharing company. A longtime pal described Saleh as “the Elon Musk of the developing world.”

“He was like the Energizer Bunny,” the friend said. “He played ukelele … he was so full of ideas.” Per New York Post

All pictures above were sourced from New York Post

Who murdered him?

The investigation is just starting as he was murdered yesterday around 3pm. Sources state the suspect was dressed up like a full ninja, you couldn’t even see his face. This suggests that somebody with money and connections hired the killer to take Fahim out.

“He clearly knew what he was doing. We think his intent was to get rid of the body parts and go back and clean it up and make it look like nothing happened. He left before he finished the job.” Per The Sun

In February of this year, Gokada’s apparent financial woes and internal conflicts came to light after laying off 75% of it’s employees. Benjamin Dada explained further in his lengthy article.

It’s fair to mention that corruption in Nigeria is a well known issue, as Nigeria was estimated to have lost over $400 billion to corruption since independence. As stated earlier the company was founded in Nigeria, so this suggests a possible connection.

Here’s a Youtube video Fahim Saleh posted on his account, asking the public to support Gokada amid the setbacks:

Here’s Fahim’s most recent and final Tweet. Rest in peace

How “Woke” Businesses are Benefiting From Labor Camps in China

The picture above is sourced from Robcounts

A newly released report from March, 2020 caught our eyes. It was an in-depth look into the realities of forced labor camps in China. The report states;

Uyghurs are working in factories that are in the supply chains of at least 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing and automotive sectors, including Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen.”

The report goes on to use three different case studies:

  • In the first case study, a factory in eastern China that manufactures shoes for US company Nike is equipped with watchtowers, barbed-wire fences and police guard boxes.
  • The second case study was on another eastern province factory claiming to supply sportswear for multinational companies Adidas and Fila.
  • In the third case study, we identify several Chinese factories making components for Apple and/or their suppliers by using Uyghur labor.

Nike is the same company that temporarily severed ties with the Washington Redskins and virtue signaled by using Colin Kaepernick as the face of their brand. It would appear that their moral compass only works when a particular issue is in the public eye. The same can be said about Apple, and their brave statement on recent racial tensions in America. Thank you Apple for disavowing racism!

I could go on and list more examples but frankly their are too many to pick. I believe companies should stay out of the political discussion in general. Especially if they themselves, have engaged in morally questionable business practices.

The following is a list of companies that have directly or indirectly benefited from the use of Chinese forced labor:

  • Abercrombie & Fitchcer
  • Adidas
  • Alstom
  • Amazon
  • Apple

  • BAIC Motor

How Big Tech is Quietly Creating a New Era of Corporate Dictatorship

Several pieces of literature and media have depicted our future world as a bleak corporate like dictatorship. A world where only a handful of powerful companies own everything we eat, see and do. The mental imagery is vivid, and may even elicit a few eyerolls from most who see the concept as cheesy and far-fetched. Unfortunately, several big tech companies are making such a reality inevitable. 

In the past decade, a handful of Big Tech giants have been quietly buying the intellectual rights to everything they can get their hands on. In 2019 alone; Samsung, IBM, LG, Microsoft & Intel have filed 24,637 patents

1International Business Machines Corp9,262
2Samsung Electronics Co Ltd6,469
3Canon Inc3,548
4Microsoft Technology Licensing LLC3,081
5Intel Corp3,020
6LG Electronics Inc2,805
7Apple Inc2,490
8Ford Global Technologies LLC2,468
9Amazon Technologies Inc2,427
10Huawei Technologies Co Ltd2,418

The data above only accounts for new patents filed in 2019. If you were to zoom out and look at the big picture and see how many patents were filed all in all, it gets much worse:

1Samsung Electronics Co Ltd76,638
2International Business Machines Corp37,304
3Canon Inc35,724
4General Electric Co30,010
5Microsoft Corp29,824
6Robert Bosch GmbH28,285
7Panasonic Corp27,298
8Siemens AG25,320
9Intel Corp24,628
10LG Electronics Inc23,043
A staggering 191,434 patents! Just for 5 companies alone!

This trend will put our advancement as a species in the hands of powerful tech giants. The common man will stand in the shadows and watch, as big tech companies stifle private innovation. Hopefully we aren’t all complicit by simply ignoring the issue. Our eagerness to buy the newest Iphone, shouldn’t distract us from the harrowing implications of patent hoarding tech companies.

Black Lives Matter is Showing Signs of a Communist Agenda

Disclaimer; although most content in this article is factual based, how you choose to perceive the information is subjective, therefore this is an opinion based article. Here at HouseOfVerity we strive to be accurate and honest with our reporting.

Obviously black lives matter, but it’s not as simple as that. Was the plan all along to use Black Lives Matter as a tool to divide us, making it easier to enforce communism? There’s no definitive answer, but here’s why i believe it may be:

  • Advocates are openly hateful to anyone that doesn’t bow down to their beliefs.
  • Criminals are looting businesses in the name of “re-distributing wealth”.
  • Supporters are encouraging a violent war on police, in some cases taking action(violence is used to maintain power in communist countries).
  • Supporters are purposely destroying peoples lives and businesses for speaking out against the movement, or anything they don’t agree on within the movement(it’s publicly known that sometimes communist countries will kill you for speaking out against the government authority).
  • The same political figures who are funding and advocating BLM are openly vocal about their ambitions to enforce socialist/communist laws into the government.
  • Black Lives Matter purposely ignores the deaths of black Americans via black on black crime and black police killing black people; the mainstream media solely focuses on one thing, white police killing black people. This suggests an agenda to divide the country with the ultimate goal of achieving mass control.
  • Black Lives Matter is becoming increasingly Anti-American by censoring free speech, erasing history, and to a lesser extent, pushing to completely change America way beyond racial inequality.

Caring about black lives is not communism, but you have to look at the whole picture. Black lives matter may be a front to introduce communism because of the extend believes beyond racial equality, for example the ambition to disrupt the “western family structure” as listed on the official website;

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

Listed on the “about” page of

That doesn’t sound too bad, right? It’s more complicated then that. The foundation of capitalism is individualism and equal opportunity for success. Communism and socialism disrupts that, by “Supporting each-other as extended families and villages” they’re non directly stating the goal of black lives matter is to make everyone on the same “level”. It’s important to read through the lines and think about what that really means.

That means socialism. No opportunity to get ahead because everything you earn including property or wealth will be re-distributed to everyone else(and the government) through taxes upwards to 90%. This creates a lazy society because there’s no purpose in pursuing your dreams, considering any form of success obtained as a result of your pursuit will be taken away from you.

Now some people are okay with this because on the flip side, socialism would grant everyone the same access to healthcare, school, and basic necessitates. It makes sense that people like the idea, especially the lower class. But here’s the problem with socialism;

  • Through an economic perspective, pure socialism has many flaws.
  • Even if the economics worked, socialism is bound to be corrupted. If you don’t believe me, ask every single country that’s ever tried it. Pure socialism has literally failed 100% of the time it’s been attempted. Also, it’s usually corrupted and converted into communism.
  • You’re simply giving the government too much power over your life. Why would you want that?

What is communism?

Let’s make something clear, socialism is not communism. The problem is that socialism is the gateway drug to communism, because you’re giving the government control to do whatever they please. Again, as stated above pure socialism has failed 100% of the time that it’s been attempted. So what is communism?

  • Communism is against free speech.
  • Communism is against the freedom of information(government controls the internet, TV, newspapers, etc).
  • Communism is against property ownership(all property belongs to the government, that means you can never own where you live).
  • Communism is against individually(the individual’s best interests are indistinguishable from the society’s best interest).

Look at the countries above, would you want to live in any of those 5 countries? Nope. All 5 of those countries started as socialism before transitioning into the communist countries they are today. Now it’s important to note that not all 5 of these countries are full communist, it’s much more complex then that and difficult to explain. For the sake of this article just be aware these countries are known to censor free speech, take physical action against anyone who speaks out, and more.

Okay, communism is bad. What does that have to do with Black Lives Matter?

  • Let’s start with the violent censorship of free speech;

This is Savannah, a teenage girl and daughter of a Texas police officer who was one of two shot and killed last Saturday after responding to a domestic disturbance call per CBS 11. Whilst mourning his death, she posted on twitter. She said nothing bad or racist at all, which clearly didn’t matter to Black Lives Matter supporters as they ruthlessly attacked her.

Democratic politicians and most people on the left(who also advocate BLM) started a huge boycott of Goya Foods because the CEO made one good comment about trump. It was one small thing he said, that they disagree with, and now they’re out to destroy his name and business.

He even said himself this is a censorship of free speech. Trump is against Black Lives Matter extremists, which is partially why democrats were so upset with this remark. Democrats have never liked Trump but recently they’ve been tying everything into BLM and using it as a manipulation tool to convince us that violence and racism towards whites is okay, in the name of “social justice”.

So If you like Trump you can’t support black lives matter, and if you support black lives matter you can’t like Trump. That’s how they think. There’s no in between, you must pick a side. It’s important to mention Trump has made remarks towards Mexicans years ago that angered democrats, but that’s not a factor today.

Democrats are openly pursuing a divided country by doing this, and a divided country is an easy country to control(enforce communism). If democrats are the warm, accepting, nice people they claim to be, why are they so quick to attack or “cancel” you just because you refuse to bow down to their beliefs? Sounds like their idea of “equality” only matters when it fits their agenda.

Aoc is just one example, for the sake of keeping this article as short as possible i’ll leave out the others

This is Jessica Doty Whitaker, a young mother who was stalked and murdered for saying “all lives matter” to a BLM protester, Per The U.S Sun. She was brutally murdered because she didn’t bow down to the perpetrator. Wow.

These are just a few examples of the democrats/BLM’s attempt to censor free speech. There’s many more, too much for me to put in this article.

  • The left wants to put property ownership rights into the hands of the government;

Ilhan Omar is publicly known for her socialist ambition, which is surprising considering she had to flee a socialist country for safety. The same freedom that America granted her she is now actively trying to get rid of. Ilhan Omar supports Black Lives Matter and condones the riots and destruction, and just like all democratic leaders, has ambitions to enforce policies around the concept.

Ilhan Omar isn’t the only democrat who wants to put property rights into the hands of the government, as several others have made various proposals surrounding the subject. The more power the government has over property rights, the less freedom we have as citizens, therefore the higher likelihood the government will abuse it’s power.

What about black on black crime?

I’m not here to persuade whether or not African Americans are oppressed, though it’s valid to ask why the organization is solely focusing on one part of the problem and not the others. When compared to black on black crime, police brutality is rather insignificant.

In 2019, 235 African Americans were killed by police; just 9 of those people were unarmed. Let that sink in for a second. Any live taken is tragic, but the 7,407 black homicide victims in 2018 are being ignored. I wasn’t able to find a source for 2019’s numbers. Using these statistics, an African American is 31 times more likely to be killed by gun violence then by a police officer. Here’s more on this topic straight from Wall Street Journal;

The police fatally shot nine unarmed blacks and 19 unarmed whites in 2019, according to a Washington Post database, down from 38 and 32, respectively, in 2015. The Post defines “unarmed” broadly to include such cases as a suspect in Newark, N.J., who had a loaded handgun in his car during a police chase. In 2018 there were 7,407 black homicide victims. Assuming a comparable number of victims last year, those nine unarmed black victims of police shootings represent 0.1% of all African-Americans killed in 2019. By contrast, a police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.

-Heather Mac donald via WSJ

Black Lives Matter leaders and advocates have openly stated the organization is not about black on black crime, one notable figure being Don Lemon. Here’s what makes me suspicious;

If they really cared about black lives, they would at least acknowledge that black on black crime is a problem. They’re completely deflecting the issue.

So what does that mean? Probably that Black Lives Matter is out to make people angry at white cops, furthermore initiating a race war. The end result of a race war is a divided country, thus accomplishing a communist’s main goal; constructing a country easier to control.

The people behind Black Lives Matter is a big indicator that it’s just a propaganda machine;

George Soros is the most notable figure as he kick-started Black Lives Matter with a $33 million dollar donation, and has continued to donate more since. Just today it’s been announced that he will donate another whopping $220 million.

The Soros rabbit hole is deep, including theories that he’s directly paying protesters cash to stir up violence in addition to being BLM’s biggest financier. On his foundations website it states;


Open Society Foundation

It’s clear he wants big government, which is a known democratic policy. It doesn’t stop there however, as there’s an overwhelming amount of information linking Soros to a Globalist agenda.

Being a globalist basically means he wants more power for groups such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. It’s communism on steroids, erasing the identity of individual countries and migrating them into one; giving him the power to do whatever he wants with the world.

In 1998 he wrote “as there are collective interests that transcend state boundaries, the sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions”

“On Oct. 26 2019, billionaire George Soros, who has spent his fortune promoting open borders and left-wing politicians, media, and organizations, said he has been impeded by opponents, including President Trump, in his lifelong quest to transform the United States into socialism, which he calls open society.” Per Fellowshipoftheminds

Here’s just a few examples of dirty things Soros has been caught doing;

  • Broke the bank of England
  • Fueling Malaysia’s Economic Crisis
  • Breaking The Bank Of Thailand
  • Trying To Destroy Hong Kong’s Economy
  • Illegally Overspending On Political Campaigns
  • Funded Egyptian terror group Al-Jama’a Al-Islamiyya
  • Deferred $13.3 billion dollars in taxes
  • Insider trading
  • Taken from listverse

Spot a trend here? If you really think George Soros cares about black lives think again. The only life he cares about is his own, and his motives are very clear; rule the world.

Don’t take my word for it, listen to actual immigrants who fled socialist countries and now live in America;

We didn’t cover everything in this article. I tried to make it as compact as I could while still providing valuable information. Even if you disagree with me, hopefully you’ll learn to double check everything the media tells you.

AOC States NYC Crime is Increasing Because of “Economic Desperation”; Fact Checked

Picture above is from the washington post

“Let’s think about it, do we think this has to do with the fact that there’s record unemployment in the united states right now? The fact that people are at a level of economic desperation that we have not seen since the great recession? Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and they’re scared to pay their rent, so they go out and they need to feed their child, and they don’t have money, so you, maybe have to, their put in a position where they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night.”

AOC is implying the economic recession is the reason why NYC is experiencing an uptick in crime. She refers to the unemployment rate. Let’s dig into it;

She’s not wrong about the numbers, as 20 million jobs were lost in April due to the coronavirus lockdown. New York state department of labor reports the city’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 18.3 percent in May 2020, an increase of 3.3 percent from April and a rise of 14.2 percent from May 2019.

It’s important to remember the Trump administration issued an extra $600 weekly in unemployment, bringing the average weekly check to $978 per week nationwide. Furthermore, most adults got a stimulas check of $1,200 + $500 for each child under 16. Also the federal government, state lawmakers and private companies have rolled out forbearance and deferment programs to combat the financial woes caused by layoffs, furloughs and other financial setbacks. The following payments can be deferred Per US News

  • Mortgage payments.
  • Rent payments.
  • Student loan payments.
  • Credit card bills.
  • Bank fees.
  • Car payments.
  • Utility bills.

Our countries economy is suffering, no doubt. But with the added free money and forgiveness resources we’ve been given to survive this pandemic, this suggests that individually we are not suffering as bad as it may seem.

AOC is ignoring the type of crime being commuted

Yes, burglary is up. Quite a bit actually, at 118.2% higher then last year. Whew, that’s a lot but so is the 130.3% increase on shootings. There were 205 citywide shooting incidents in June 2020, compared to 89 shooting incidents in June 2019, a 130.3% increase. Year-to-date, through June 30, there is a +46% spike in citywide shooting incidents (528 v. 362). Also, murder is up +23.1% (181 v. 147) for the first six months of 2020 when compared to the first six months of 2019. Per NYPD

Robbing a store for a loaf of bread is a little different then shooting and killing someone, don’t you think? You could argue that people are shooting the store workers, but that’s simply not the case. As of matter of fact just this weekend was partically very bloody with 15 shootings in 15 hours and none of them was a store clerk.

There’s been several high profile incidents of shootings in NYC recently and none of them have been store clerks or anything related to shooting because they’re “desperately hungry”. Here’s just one example;

So what is it then? Why is crime increasing drastically in not just NYC, but other major cities too?

We can’t give a definite answer on that. It’s important to note that every single city pushing to de-fund police has seen crime spike. It would make sense to use de-funding police as the culprit, but that’s a flawed claim as well because most cities de-funding efforts are just getting started amid the rise in crime, not prior to the rise in crime.

It’s fair to state the Black Lives Matter movement may be contributing, as it’s highly documented the riots and looting costed hundreds of millions of dollars. Criminals could be sensing the weakness from NYPD amid de-funding efforts, and high scrutiny police are constantly under, therefore committing more crimes because they feel a higher likelihood of getting away with it? Just a theory.

Either way, there is no evidence the economic recession is the reason for the increase in crime.

Jewish Action Movement Claims Trump Campaign is Using a Nazi Symbol; Fact Checked

Jewish Action is a political organization who states “Bend the Arc’s political advocacy arm harnesses the collective power of progressive American Jews to change policy and build a more just and equal nation.”

On July 1st they Tweeted that Trump is campaigning for re-election with a Nazi symbol.

Since their tweet several news outlets including USA Today reported on the claim, agreeing with Jewish Action.

Fact check; the bald eagle is not a Nazi symbol

“The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.”

We gathered this information from several sources, here’s one.

Furthermore, similar bald eagle logos are on America’s dollar bills, quarters, several U.S government icons, and part of the United States Marine Corp’s logo. Nancy Pelosi sports a bald eagle logo too, so if Trump is a Nazi for using it then so is Nancy(who is a democratic house of representatives leader).

It’s important to mention that Jewish Action is funded by George Soros, who opposes Trump, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that a George Soros funded organization is desperately trying to paint a bad picture of Trump.

Smart Dust: The Technology That can Monitor Anyone, Anywhere, at any Time

Article By Sterlingbh

  • The Smart Dust research proposal was presented to DARPA in 1997 by Kristofer S. J. Pister, Joe Kahn, and Bernhard Boser, from the University of California, Berkeley.
  • General Electric, Cargill, IBM, Cisco Systems and other notable companies have invested heavily in the research of Smart Dust.
  • Smart Dust has the potential to be used in a wide variety of sectors including healthcare, agriculture, biotechnology, manufacturing and warfare. 
  • Smart Dust technology has been around for roughly 19 years, without ever being available to the general public.

If there is one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that we are all entitled to a reasonable amount of personal privacy. In fact, personal privacy seems to be more and more relevant in this era of rapid technological advancement. Accordingly, skepticism is warranted whenever a technology has the potential to undermine your right to privacy. And, you guessed it. That’s where Smart Dust comes into play.

Smart Dust is exactly what it sounds like. They are tiny little sensors, that are capable of conducting surveillance/collecting data and tracking it’s own location in real time. On average, these Smart Dust sensors are about the size of a grain of table salt (0.3 mm x 0.3 mm).

The idea was first conceptualized in the early 90’s by DARPA and The RAND Corporation (both of which are federally funded). From there, the concept seemed to be largely forgotten about, until three professors from the University Of California, Berkeley began looking more into potential uses of the technology. They made a research proposal that was ultimately approved for federal funding.

With the newfound interest of the United States Military, prototypes were made, and the first real life application was tested in 2001. In this test, they had used enlarged Smart Dust sensors to accurately determine the speed and direction of 142 different military vehicles.

In the years following, several different companies took interest in the technology. And as a result, some of the more recent advancements can be attributed to the private sector.

Currently, it would appear that no company or governmental agency is publicly developing research on the technology. This has led many people to speculate, that Smart Dust technology is far more advanced than what we are being told. Either way, any technology that yields this amount of potential for trouble, should be matched equally with extreme caution. If we fail to do so, we will find ourselves in a dystopian, cyberpunk-eque world. A world, where everyone and everything will be monitored through a global, neural network of billions of Smart Dust Particles.

But don’t take my word for it…

“Central Nervous System for the Earth”

(CeNSE), a project of HP Labs, is revolutionizing the way information is gathered, communicated, and analyzed. CeNSE consists of a highly intelligent network of billions of nanoscale sensors designed to feel, taste, smell, see, and hear what is going on in the world. When fully deployed, these sensors will quickly gather data and transmit it to powerful computing engines, which will analyze and act upon the information in real time using a new breed of business applications and web services…..”

……That’s the goal of HP Labs Central Nervous System for the Earth, or CeNSE. The research and development program aims to build a planetwide sensing network using billions of tiny, cheap, tough and exquisitely sensitive detectors.”
