DHS/Police are turning public CCTV cameras into surveillance cameras, Part 1
Purdue researchers have developed a prototype system called ‘Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments’ (VACCINE) which allows law enforcement to tap into thousands of CCTV cameras. This means police can spy on you in parking garages, college campuses, national parks, highways etc., no place is safe from Big Brother.
VACCINE and the International Chiefs of Police are working together to make spying on everyone a reality. Think about that for a minute, DHS is using 18,000 police departments to spy on millions of Americans.
Mizzou conducting ‘diversity audit’ to recommend new policies
This is not the UM System’s first attempt to address issues of diversity and inclusion on its campuses, but rather a continuation of its efforts to address the demands issued by student protesters who made Mizzou the center of national attention last year.
To ensure student safety during the protests, for instance, campus police issued a notice to students asking them to report instances of “hateful and/or hurtful speech” so that the university could pursue disciplinary action, and in March, Mizzou’s College of Arts & Sciences announced that all students will now have to complete a three-credit diversity course in order to graduate.

Sex and State Power — What’s Behind Obama’s Transgender Push
The Obama administration has announced that from this day forward, all public schools in America must let children choose their bathroom and locker room based upon a child’s feelings about his or her gender on any given day.

Researchers Develop ‘Holy Grail’ Eye Drop to Prevent, Treat Cataracts Without Surgery
For the millions of people whose vision is clouded by cataracts, surgery had been the only option, but in a few years we may be able to treat, and even prevent the debilitating condition with simple eyedrops.
Researchers at Louisiana State University have formulated drops made of nanoparticles that are able to efficiently deliver into the eye lens the natural substance called lutein–which is plentiful in youthful eyes, but diminishes in old age.
“The nanoparticle matrix can deliver lutein to the eye efficiently, which improves its effect against cataracts,” Sabliov said.
Germany’s New Right Leader Schools Brainwashed Young Leftists
