BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – – WREG has obtained new surveillance video of a violent car theft caught on camera. It happened at the Shelby Express gas station at East Shelby Drive and Mendenhall around three Friday morning.

In the video, you see a man in a white shirt and blue pants jump into a car that was left running and unlocked. The vehicle owner spots the thief from inside the store and runs out to stop him. There’s a struggle but the victim can’t hang on to the driver’s side door. He’s thrown to the ground and has to watch helplessly as the thief drives into the night.

People WREG showed the video to, like Memphis resident Tonya Jones, say they wouldn’t have been so bold.

“Nah baby. I’ma let (the thief) go ahead. (The victim) could have got killed,” Jones said, “I’d just put in a police report.”

Surveillance video also shows the victim pulling into the gas station minutes earlier and then getting out of his car without locking it or turning off the engine.

“That make feel stupid for just leaving my car crunk up,” Memphis resident April Hall said, “That just made …

VERNON PARISH, La. (KALB) – Jennifer Roberts thought she had the perfect marriage.“On the outside, we did,” Roberts explained. “But nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors.”On March 20, 2018, surveillance video captured a domestic violence attack.“My attacker was my husband at the time,” Roberts continued to explain. “My repeated strangulation was caught on our home surveillance system.”The attack caught on video lasted eight minutes.“I always get the same question,” Roberts said. “How does a woman like you become a victim of domestic violence? You’re smart. How did it come to this? The way equate it is, it’s like a brick. A brick building, you slowly chip away at it. It starts with issues like self-esteem and control issues, and before you know it, you’re in over your head, and you can’t control the tumble of the wall.”The video became a key piece of evidence, and on Oct. 15, 2019, a judge ruled Robert’s husband guilty of one felony count of domestic abuse strangulation.“What I’ve chosen to do with my life is to break the silence and come out and say no more,” Roberts explained. “You are never alone.

Letter to Representative Eshoo on Executive Branch Surveillance

letter to representative eshoo on executive branch surveillance

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

October 27, 2020
The Honorable Anna Eshoo202 Cannon House Office BuildingUnited States House of RepresentativesWashington, DC 20515
Dear Representative Eshoo:
Thank you for your leadership investigating executive branch surveillance of protesters, Congress, and the Supreme Court of the United States. We share your urgent concerns about recent reports revealing that surveillance has been deployed against the Black Lives Matter movement and that NSA workers and contractors such as Edward Snowden had the ability to surveil Members of Congress and others simply by querying for their communications, potentially already stored in intelligence agencies’ ballooning databases.
Your office’s inquiry to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the National Security Agency builds critical foundation for the ongoing debate around domestic surveillance conducted for intelligence purposes, for both your colleagues and the hundreds of millions of people in the United States who have been wrongly swept up by the government’s mass surveillance practices, including so-called “targeted” surveillance activities that target people based on their race, religion or other unlawful characteristic.
By subsequently calling for the Acting Inspector General of the Intelligence Community to investigate this surveillance, you have advanced this effort by making clear Congress will not and must not sit by …

Verkada, a surveillance startup in Silicon Valley, uses its security cameras in its building, which the male senior sales accessed to take photos of female employees and make sexual comments about them on a Slack channel.
From Vice:
Last year, a sales director on the company’s sales team abused their access to these cameras to take and post photos of colleagues in a Slack channel called #RawVerkadawgz where they made sexually explicit jokes about women who worked at the company, according to a report in IPVM, which Motherboard independently verified and obtained more information about.”Face match… find me a squirt,” the sales director wrote in the company Slack channel in August 2019, according to one screenshot obtained by Motherboard.The comment was posted along with a series of photos of employees’ faces captured with the office’s surveillance system which were patched together using a Verkada facial recognition feature. “Face search,” as it’s called, can pinpoint an individual in a sea of faces. The pinpointed face, in this instance, belonged to a Verkada employee, her mouth wide open. In addition to verifying the incident with three sources who worked at Verkada at the time, Motherboard compared the format of the images …

Lovers rob 6 Chicago area banks before leading cops on 100-mile chase into Indiana: FBI

lovers rob 6 chicago area banks before leading cops on 100-mile chase into indiana: fbi

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The lovers were on a roll. The two women had successfully robbed five Chicago area banks in a matter of weeks and were about to knock off their sixth.
But they hadn’t realized the FBI used Chicago police surveillance cameras to track their movements and bugged their getaway car with a tracking device at their Englewood home.
That’s why last Tuesday, as the pair allegedly robbed a PNC Bank branch in the North Center neighborhood, police tracked them in a high speed, 100-mile chase into Indiana that ended in their arrests when their car ran out of gas.
Violet Greco, 20, was the getaway driver and brains of the operation, according to a federal criminal complaint. The robberies were allegedly carried out by her partner, Glenesha Currie, 29.
Currie never showed a weapon in the heists that began in August at a Fifth Third Bank in suburban Summit, according to the charges. Currie, wearing a reflective construction vest, allegedly slipped a note to the teller, reading “Hi, smile. I have a gun give me all the money,” before making off with over $600.
The other robberies followed a similar pattern.

Simple method provides real-time surveillance to control the spread of drug-resistant gonorrhea

simple method provides real-time surveillance to control the spread of drug-resistant gonorrhea

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Reviewed by Emily Henderson, B.Sc.Oct 27 2020
A dual therapy treatment regimen of expanded-spectrum cephalosporins (ESCs) plus azithromycin (AZM) is the recommended standard of care for gonorrhea.

A strain of the Neisseria (N.) gonorrhoeae that is resistant to the ESC and AZM combination has emerged around the world with the potential to make gonorrhea untreatable. The currently used screening methods for antimicrobial resistant (AMR) determinants are slow, expensive, and not widely available.

In an article in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics, published by Elsevier, researchers report a rapid and cheap method that can provide real-time surveillance to help control the spread of AMR strains of N. gonorrhoeae.

“N. gonorrhoeae has developed resistance to almost all classes of antibiotics that were previously recommended for treatment,” explained lead investigator Junping Peng, MD, NHC Key Laboratory of Systems Biology of Pathogens, Institute of Pathogen Biology, and Key Laboratory of Respiratory Disease Pathogenomics, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

“Timely determination and monitoring of AMR profiles are crucial for appropriately personalized treatment and maintenance of treatment effectiveness.”

Current surveillance systems primarily depend on culture-based methods, which have high sensitivity but long turnaround times. Several nucleic acid amplification testing methods …
