Peace In Our Lifetime

World Peace Day – Seeking Inner Peace And Outer Peace

Peace In Our Lifetime Founder, Lynne Hazelden

I have never met Lynne Hazelden, yet I consider her a friend. We met in cyber space in 2010 when we both submitted book proposals for a competition. Since then, I have been a guest on her radio show and I follow her posts about Peace In Our Lifetime.

 Stop and think about that phrase for a moment - Peace In Our Lifetime. Isn't that an amazing aspiration? When setting a goal we are encouraged to decide on a time limit within which we aim to see the goal realised. Peace In Our Lifetime conveys possibility, a gentle urgency, and the implication that each of us contributes to both our own inner peace and world peace.

 For Lynne, there is another powerful meaning to the phrase:

We experience greater inner peace as we see the peace that is all around us. Peace In Our Lifetime's work empowers a shift in consciousness to allow people to see that peace in our lifetime IS already here. After all 6.9 billion people are living peacefully, and often with great compassion for their family and society.

World Peace Day

 Established by a United Nations resolution in 1981, 21st September marks The International Day of Peace (Peace Day).

Global Ceasefire

 In association with Peace Day, 21st September is also a day of Global Ceasefire when humanity lays down its weapons by conscious choice. I was astonished and heartened to hear about this wonderful initiative. Aid is able to get into otherwise war-torn countries. Children are immunised. A global ceasefire provides hope for citizens who endure war and conflict; if war can stop for one day, it expands our vision that war can stop for good.

A Day of Gratitude and Thanks

 As part of celebrations for Peace Day 2012, Peace in Our Lifetime is declaring A Day of Gratitude and Thanks. On this day, in the quiet of the ceasefire, we are invited to stop and acknowledge the people acting peacefully in our own lives. There are people everywhere acting with love. Carers who look after another human being, a fireman who saves a life, someone raising funds for local community projects, those acting to preserve the natural world.

A Personal Commitment To Seeking Inner Peace In Our Own Lives

Peace is something we tend to see as needing to happen over there in other countries. Instead, peace begins with personal responsibility taken by each individual. When we address and heal the conflict in ourselves and in our own lives, we are helping.

 Inspirational Work Towards World Peace

 Despite living with severe illness, with the power of the internet Lynne Hazelden has done amazing things to rally people in the cause of world peace. In recognition of her work she has been made a Good Will Ambassador and Fellow of the Peace Research Institute

What Is Your Personal Journey Towards Peace?

 Let us set aside a day to talk about peace, focus on the peace that already exists in our lives, and find inner peace in ourselves. We each have our different gift to contribute to world peace. What is yours?

 Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.  Edmund Burke

Trap Wire and Stratfor are Business Partners - Documentary Evidence

TrapWire and Stratfor are business partners – documentary evidence


Stratfor, the private Intelligence-gathering company whose emails were hacked by Anonymous then published by Wikileaks, didn’t just comment on TrapWire via its emails: in August 2009 it joined with the TrapWire project via a partnership deal with Abraxas Applications. And here is the document to prove it. The deal explicitly states that Stratfor will supply intelligence directly into TrapWire on an ongoing basis. To see detailed analyses of Stratfor’s business relationship with TrapWire (and the consequent conflict of interest) click here and here.

So there you have it. Another piece in the jigsaw. This story gets bigger and bigger…
In Australia, Greens Senator, Scott Ludlam, tried to ask a question in the Senate about whether TrapWire was deployed in Australia. He was not allowed to (the Senate voted not to answer questions on this matter). Senator Ludlam’s office later issued a statement explaining that the Senator will be pursuing the matter via other channels of inquiry.

Also, a representative of Cubic Corporation has posted a comment on the Darker Net article, saying “SAN DIEGO, Calif. – August 13, 2012 – Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) acquired Abraxas Corporation on December 20, 2010. Abraxas Corporation then and now has no affiliation with Abraxas Applications now known as TrapWire, Inc.”
Some background explanation is needed…

Today, TrapWire software is owned by TrapWire Inc., a Reston, VA company. But it wasn’t always. Abraxas Corporation created TrapWire under its subsidiary firm, Abraxas Applications Inc.. Abraxas Corporation trademarked the TrapWire software in a filing with the U.S. PTO in 2006. Abraxas Corporation is now owned by Cubic Corporation, which bought the firm in November 2010 for $124 million in cash. According to one report, Cubic acquired Abraxas Corporation after TrapWire was reorganised as a separate entity and that one of the terms of this acquisition was to “cause the corporate name of Abraxas Applications, Inc. to be changed to a name that does not include ‘Abraxas’ or any variation thereof.” Also, according to a March 2007 article in the Washington Business Journal “Abraxas Corp., a risk-mitigation technology company, has spun out a software business to focus on selling a new product. The spinoff – called Abraxas Applications – will sell TrapWire, which predicts attacks on critical infrastructure by analyzing security reports and video surveillance”. And the article continues: “Abraxas Corp. previously won contracts to test TrapWire…”

Further insight is provided by Public Intelligence (renowned for its accuracy): “A proprietary white paper produced by TrapWire, formerly called Abraxas Applications, describes the product as “a unique, predictive software system designed to detect patterns of pre-attack surveillance.” In an interview from 2005 with the Northern Virginia Technology Council, the CEO of Abraxas Corporation, Richard “Hollis” Helms, says the goal of TrapWire is to “collect information about people and vehicles that is more accurate than facial recognition, draw patterns, and do threat assessments of areas that may be under observation from terrorists… The new company [Abraxas Applications] also can tap into Abraxas’ [Corporation] work with defense and intelligence agencies and the connections of Abraxas founder and CEO Richard Hollis Helms, who owns both companies.”
So can Cubic Corporation legitimately claim not to own Abraxas Applications (which runs TrapWire)? If we go strictly by purchase dates, yes – though it’s common practice for a company, when acquiring another, to relinquish one part that might cause embarrassment so that on paper at least there is no longer any connection, even though some of the personnel between those companies are swapped around.

Also, we should not lose sight of the range of services Cubic Corporation does admit to – these are mostly defence systems and military training – as well as transport smart systems and even interests in credit card management. A bizarre mix that in itself should be of concern. For example, Cubic is listed as the organisational leader for Ntrepid, a shadowy organisation that “provides national security and law enforcement customers with software, hardware, and managed services for cyber operations, analytics, linguistics, tagging and [online] tracking”. Ntrepid’s corporate registry in turn lists Abraxas’ previous CEO and founder, Richard Helms, as a director and officer, along with Wesley Husted, the former CFO. Moreover, some of the top people at Anonymizer, who later moved to Abraxas, initially left Cubic to start another intelligence firm but are now listed as organisational leaders for Ntrepid. All very circular, to say the least…

TrapWire investigation links transit systems and Anonymizer in global surveillance network

Breaking News on RT about the latest evidence...


Secretive TrapWire company's affiliations revealed

Published: 20 September, 2012, 02:27
Edited: 20 September, 2012, 06:34

Just discovered documentation concerning the TrapWire secret surveillance system suggests that the San Diego-based Cubic Corporation did have a direct connection with the program, despite repeated attempts to dismiss allegations of their involvement.

Although Cubic has gone on the record on several occasions to refute claims that they have at one time or another been directly tied to the Abraxas Applications, the Northern Virginia company believed to have developed TrapWire, a post published this week on the blog discusses evidence that links the two firms to one another. Cubic has repeatedly insisted that it has no link to TrapWire, a widespread, international surveillance and intelligence system brought to light in emails distributed by WikiLeaks, but new revelations expose a relationship between the two that was documented on a federal website as recently as February of last year.
As RT unraveled the TrapWire saga earlier this year, investigations into both Cubic and Abraxas revealed a number of associations among the two. In an August 13, 2012 press release, Cubic came forth and admitted to acquiring Abraxas Corp in December of 2010, but insisted, “Abraxas Corporation then and now has no affiliation with Abraxas Applications now known as Trapwire, Inc.” The latest revelation directly discredits that claim.
PrivacySos reports that a website maintained by the US Homeland Security Department’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) includes TrapWire as a product for sale to law enforcement agencies and first responders. It’s there that the background and operational concept of the system are described in detail and direct curious customers to for more information. When a link to the URL is clicked, the banner at the top of the developer’s homepage described Abraxas as “A Cubic Company.” On the FEMA page, the product information is detailed as provided directly by Abraxas Applications

"The Products Section includes commercially available product information that has been uploaded directly and voluntarily by the manufacturer,” the FEMA page acknowledges.
If that is indeed the case, either the federal government is hosting falsified information about TrapWire to prospective customers, or else the program was overseen to a degree by Cubic as previously suspected. If it’s the latter, then the August 13 statement was a downright lie.
On the PrivacySos post, published Tuesday, its acknowledged that Cubic has previously been confirmed as operating fare systems for major mass transit programs and Anonymizer, an IP-masked tool described by its publicists as “the leader in consumer online anonymity solutions.”

“If the government's facts are correct, the Abraxas Corporation was managing sales for the TrapWire system at least as recently as February 2011 – meaning Cubic had its hands on both highly sensitive private information on millions of ordinary people and a networked surveillance system sold to governments,” PrivacySOS notes.

In addition to the press release that attempted to distance Cubic from TrapWire, activist and Project PM founder Barrett Brown uploaded a phone call to YouTube he alleged to be between himself and Cubic Corp. Communication Director Tim Hall. In the clip, published August 21, Mr. Hall denied his company’s involvement with TrapWire and also insisted that Cubic has never been tied to Ntrepid, a separate corporation that was awarded $2.76 million worth of taxpayer dollars to create phony Internet “sock puppets” to propagate US support.

“There is no connection at all with Abraxas Applications and Trapwire and or Ntrepid,” the man perpetrated to be Hall explains in the clip. Research into the entities, however, led to the discovery of Abraxas Corporation’s tax filings from late 2011, and with it, a common bond: TrapWire Inc. was registered in 2009 to a Margaret A Lee from Virginia, who also served on the Ntrepid board of directors.
“Since the government's intelligence and data management contracting operations are so secretive and opaque, we may never know what's really going on – whether Cubic in fact operates transit data systems, so-called IP anonymizers and surveillance systems sold to governments,” the PrivacySOS post reads. “[It] doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. That's because we know more than enough to be convinced that we need a mass movement for privacy in the United States, whether or not these connections are real.”

Facedeals.. facial recognition tools to be used for discounts

Surveillance tools to be used in customer reward application???

In the wake of the latest Wikileaks release about the Surveillance Network TrapWire it has been announced by Redpepper Advertising Agency (Nashville Tennesse ) that they intend to use Facial Recognition Technology to reward customers through an application dubbed "facedeal"

If you have "liked" the pages of participating businesses you will receive a discount via mobile devices as you enter the premises... Wifi Cameras using facebooks facial recognition software will identify you from pictures that you have uploaded to your facebook.

The company explained that as businesses and customers were not manually checking in as frequently as they had hoped, Facedeal would allow automation offers to be delivered to loyal customers.

The next evolution in Targeted Advertising Systems goes from tracking consumers online via their google searches and web activities, into mining customer photographs from public profiles. Surely this brings into question human rights where privacy is concerned?

Online and mobile targeting technologies work by anonymously monitoring and tracking the content read and sites visited by a user or IP when that user surfs on the Internet. This is done by serving tracking codes. Sites visited, content viewed, and length of visit are databased to predict an online behavioral pattern.[2]

Privacy International is fighting in order to make Governments legislate in a way that protects the rights of the general public. According to them, from any ethical standpoint such interception of web traffic must be conditional on the basis of explicit and informed consent. And action must be taken where organisations can be shown to have acted unlawfully.[6]

A survey conducted in the United States by the Pew Internet & American Life Project between January 20 and February 19, 2012 revealed that most of Americans are not fans of targeted advertising, seeing it as an invasion of privacy. Indeed 68% of those surveyed said they are "not okay" with targeted advertising because they do not like having their online behavior tracked and analyzed.[7]
