ALEXA, WHAT'S MY BLOOD-SUGAR LEVEL?

Amazon  may be known as the “everything store,” but the company’s tendrils extend far beyond ecommerce. On Thursday, Amazon said Alexa-enabled devices can now handle customers’ sensitive medical data, and it teased the release of a new kit that would allow approved outside developers to build Alexa skills that access users’ private health information, paving the way for the voice assistant to play a bigger role in health care.

With the announcement came the release of new skills giving Alexa  the ability to relay and store blood sugar measurements from internet-connected monitoring devices, help schedule doctors’ appointments, pass on post-op instructions from hospitals, and provide prescription delivery updates by securely accessing customers’ private medical information.

As part of the announcement, Amazon said it had committed to protect personal health information according to the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, which protects the privacy of medical records. Alexa’s health and wellness team had been working  to obtain HIPAA compliance for months. For now, only six companies invited by Amazon will be able to build skills that can access sensitive medical information, but Amazon expects to add more developers to that list in the coming months.

Social Media and End of Russia Probe?

The Plan is for the United States to rule the world. The overt theme is unilateralism, but it is ultimately a story of domination. It calls for the United States to maintain its overwhelming superiority and prevent new rivals from rising up to challenge it on the world stage. It calls for dominion over friends and enemies alike. It says not that the United States must be more powerful, or most powerful, but that it must be absolutely powerful.

In Japan shares of Toshiba Corp. surged 6.3% after President Obama told an audience he endorsed nuclear power and earmarked $8.3 billion for the construction of two nuclear power plants. If approved, the contract would go to Southern Co. and its partners, which would build reactors designed by Westinghouse -- that helped build the first nuclear power plants in America. According to The New York Times, there are now 104 nuclear reactors in the U.S., but a new plant has not been constructed since 1973. Japan, a country with extremely limited local energy resources, operates 55 nuclear reactors, has two more under construction, and even more in the planning stages....

ICING ON NORTH AMERICA’S WHITE SUPREMACIST FEAR-DRIVEN FASCIST HISTORY

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/4067711-BIE-Redacted.html

(U//FOUO) The FBI assesses it is very likely aBlack Identity Extremistb (BIE)  perceptions of police brutality against African Americans spurred an increase in premeditated, retaliatory lethal violence against law enforcement and will very likely serve as justification for such violence. The FBI assess it is very likely this increase began following the 9 August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the subsequent Grand Jury November 2014 declination to indict the police officers involved. The FBI assesses it is very likely incidents of alleged police abuse against African Americans since then continued to feed the resurgence in ideologically motivated, violent criminal activity within the BIE movement. The FBI assesses it is very likely some BIEs are influenced by a mix of anti-authoritarian, Moorish sovereign citizenc ideology, and BIE ideology. The FBI has high confidenced in these assessments, based on a history of violent incidents attributed to individuals who acted on behalf of their ideological beliefs, documented in FBI investigations and other law enforcement and open source reporting. The FBI makes this judgment with the key assumption the recent incidents are ideologically motivated.

"Democracy has justified itself by keeping for the white  race the best portion's of the earth's surface.”
