By 2014, All Of Your Clothes Will Be Tagged With Microchips
RFID tags, sometimes called “smart tags,” hold a small amount of data and contain an antenna (that’s the curly shape you see) that allows RFID reading devices to read at that data remotely. A reader can be a handheld device that people wave over the tag at the checkout counter, or a device hidden in a doorway that checks the tags on your clothing as you walk down the street. According to a release about the ABI Research brief: "Previously limited to a small number of large-volume pilot tests, adoption of item-level RFID is beginning to permeate throughout the apparel sector and is increasingly evolving into full-scale implementations. According to Liard, “While installations at Marks and Spencer in the UK, American Apparel in the US, and Charles Vögele in Switzerland remain the largest contributors to market growth, scores of companies are now in various stages of implementation. RFID in fashion apparel is undoubtedly here and now.”

CBS News Business Website Reports On Mark Of The Beast Technology Advance: Says New Microchip Implant Will "Tag You Like A Dog, Link Your Credit History, Social Security, Health Records"
Novartis and Proteus Biomedical are not the only companies hoping to implant microchips into patients so that their pill-popping habits can be monitored. VeriChip of Delray Beach, Fl., has an even bolder idea: an implanted chip that links to an online database containing all your medical records, credit history and your social security ID. As this presentation to investors makes clear, the chip and its database could form the basis of a new national identity database lined to Social Security and The VeriMed Health Link homepage describes the chip: "… a tiny, passive microchip (the nation’s first and only microchip cleared for patient identification by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration) and a secure, private online database that links you to your personal health record. Your Health Link is always with you and cannot be lost or stolen." The company also sees the VeriMed Health Link linked to your “identity security services,” through a separate VeriChip PositiveID bridges the gap between secure medical records and identity security.... It’s a future in which your doctor tags you like a dog with a microchip that allows anyone with the right privileges to look at your medical records, credit history, social security number, and anything else that stems from that...

Tom Horn Article AT NWV On Verichip And Beast Tech
Makers of implantable microchips claim the procedure will continue to be voluntary. But a report written by Elaine M. Ramish for the Franklin Pierce Law Center says: "A [mandatory] national identification system via microchip implants could be achieved in two stages: Upon introduction as a voluntary system, the microchip implantation will appear to be palatable. After there is a familiarity with the procedure and a knowledge of its benefits, implantation would be mandatory." George Getz, communications director for the Libertarian Party agrees, saying: “After all, the government has never forced anyone to have a driver license, [but] try getting along without one, when everyone from your local banker to the car rental man to the hotel operator to the grocery store requires one in order for you to take advantage of their services, that amounts to a de facto mandate. If the government can force you to surrender your fingerprints to get a drivers license, why can't it force you to get a computer chip implant?” People like Mr. Getz are correct... In the same way Social Security numbers were voluntary before becoming mandatory, biometric chip implants will be compulsory in the future.... Even Applied Digital Solution's chief executive officer Richard Sullivan envisions a scenario where people [are] required to be chipped or [have] some combination of a device requiring them to be scanned and monitored at all times.

Ingestible Chip That Reminds You To Take Medicine Begins Trials With Novartis
Not everyone likes taking their medicine. Between just plain forgetfulness and a dislike for taste or side effects, many long term prescription users routinely miss taking their meds. That avoidance leads to $290 billion in medical costs in the US alone according to the New England Healthcare Institute. Between one third and one half of all Americans have missed taking their pills, but that could all change with Proteus Biomedical. As we described last year, and again recently, Proteus attaches an ingestible computer chip on pills so that an implanted or mobile device can track to see if you are actually swallowing them. Part of the Raisin system which is currently in clinical trials, tattle-tale pills may be a great way to keep you medicated.

Swine Flu Vaccine Recipients Could Be Tracked With RFID Bracelets Using Big Brother Medical Technology
Here's the scene from some dark, present-day action movie: David Balfour breathed hard. He could hear the thumping of heavy boots outside his door, down the hall, mixed with the muffled grunts of military men. He had known they would come. It was obvious from the moment he refused the VaxTrax bracelet at the county clinic. They said it would keep him safe because they could pinpoint his location if he ever suffered a heart attack or an accident. As a bonus, his entire medical history was also imprinted in the RFID chip, so even if he was found unconscious, they could determine his medical status and start treatment right away. But he had refused on the spot. David didn't want to be tracked. So he walked away from the clinic, without the vaccine and without the bracelet. That was stupid, he now realized. They had apparently tracked him anyway... somehow... and now they were at his door, and their fists pounded loudly. "Boston Police! Open up!"

VeriChip Corp Readies Flu Detecting Microchip For Mass Implantations
Vaccination and id tracking trials have in fact taken place last year. The Boston Globe informs us: “Boston disease trackers are embarking on a novel experiment - one of the first in the country - aimed at eventually creating a citywide registry of everyone who has had a flu vaccination.” “Keeping track of that cache of vaccine - and which patients are getting it”. “Dr. Alfred DeMaria, top disease doctor at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health said, “if you’re tracking multiple clinics in real time, you can see where the uptake is better and where it’s less, and then focus on outreach.” “When people arrive for their shots, they will get an ID bracelet […] information - name, age, gender, address - will be entered into the patient tracking database. There will be electronic records, too, of who gave the vaccine and whether it was injected into the right arm or the left, and time-stamped for that day.” Mass injection of VeriChip devices under all of our skin is the only way the device could detect the spread of pandemics. A lofty and insane undertaking for the near future perhaps, but you’d be surprised how many people would accept illogical measures during a scare. Until there is confirmation these chips will be put in to use everyone’s main focus should be the illogical use of rushed vaccines for a mild flu. There are dangerous ingredients confirmed in the vaccines and the confidence of governments in them can be seen with governments granting legal immunity to manufactures and servants implementing the scheme.

And Verichip Just Won Patent License For Implantable Virus Detection System: Could It Become The 'Mark' Of The Beast? Check Out Tom Horn's Blog On The Subject Earlier This Week
Her theory was gripping. An occult elite operating behind the US Government devises a virus that is a crossover between human and animal disease, let’s say an entirely new and highly contagious influenza mutation, and intentionally releases it into the public. A pandemic ensues, and the period between when a person contracts the virus and death is something like 10 days. With tens of thousands dead in a few weeks and the rate of death increasing hourly around the globe, a universal cry for a cure goes out. Seemingly miraculously, the government then steps forward with a vaccine. The only catch, they explain, is that given the nature of the animal-human strain, the “cure” rewrites one’s genetics, so that they are no longer entirely human. Nita’s point was that those who receive this antidote would become part “beast” and thus the title, “Mark of the Beast.” No longer “entirely human” would also mean—according to this outline—that the individual could no longer be “saved” ... To find if the science behind this abstract would be as reasonable as it appeared on the surface, I contacted Sharon Gilbert. This was her troubling response...

Forgetful Patients To Be Microchipped
Patients will be fitted with a microchip in their shoulder to remind them to take their medicine, under a new scheme being developed by a drugs company. Older people will be given pills containing a harmless microchip that sends a signal to the chip in the shoulder when the pill is taken. But if the pill is not taken by the forgetful patient, the chip in the shoulder will then send a text to a carer or the patient to remind them.  Swiss pharmaceutical group Norvatis is developing the electronic pill that it hopes will reduce the number of patients who have to be supervised taking their medicine. Joe Jiminez, head of pharmaceuticals at Novartis, said tests of the 'chip in the pill' to a shoulder receiver chip had been carried out on 20 patients. The experiment with a drug that lowers blood pressure had increased the amount of times patients had taken their medicine on time from 30 per cent to 80 per cent in six months. Drug companies are keen to improve 'compliance' rates among patients as most end up not taking their correct dosages because of unpleasant side effects or a failure to gain symptoms quickly.

VeriChip Shares Jump After H1N1 Patent License Win To Develop Implantable Virus [Delivery?] Detection Systems In Humans
Shares of VeriChip Corp (CHIP.O) tripled after the company said it had been granted an exclusive license to two patents, which will help it to develop implantable virus detection systems in humans. The patents, held by VeriChip partner Receptors LLC, relate to biosensors that can detect the H1N1 and other viruses, and biological threats such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, VeriChip said in a statement. The technology will combine with VeriChip's implantable radio frequency identification devices to develop virus triage detection systems. The triage system will provide multiple levels of identification -- the first will identify the agent as virus or non-virus, the second level will classify the virus and alert the user to the presence of pandemic threat viruses and the third level will identify the precise pathogen, VeriChip said in a white paper published May 7, 2009. Shares of VeriChip were up 186 percent at $3.28 Monday late afternoon trade on Nasdaq. They had touched a year high of $3.43 earlier in the session.

Calling Sharon Gilbert! A Death Chip In The Tip Of The Needle?
Yesterday, 27 August 2009, I was giving an introductory talk about German New Medicine (GNM) near Vienna, Austria. My wife was with me and about 40 listeners. At the end as part of the discussion the swine flu was mentioned and a lady got up and declared the following: A friend of hers works for a pharmaceutical company in Vienna and told her that the swine flu injection needles indeed contain nano particles in their very tip, which cannot be detected with the naked eye but are clearly visible with as little as a 12 times magnifying microscope like children’s toy microscopes. The staff of the pharmaceutical company was advised that these nano particles work in the human body like a motherboard in the computer and lots of data can be stored on it, which will make cash cards obsolete. This measure was also intended to do an accurate census and to protect babies, as many mothers would simply “discard” their newborn, without knowledge of the authorities.

First Dogs, Then You? Compulsory Microchipping Gets Leg Up
The Charity called on the government to introduce compulsory microchipping for all dogs in the UK in a bid to help trace abandoned pets. “Microchipping is an essential part of being a responsible dog owner and has helped so many people become reunited with their beloved pets,” said Clarissa Baldwin. A 2008 change in the law means that statutory responsibility for stray dogs in England and Wales has passed from police to local authorities. Councils often lack the funding to round up the animals while limited working hours mean that people who rescue strays are often forced to keep the them overnight. The report, the 2009 Stray Dog Survey, shows that 31 per cent of stray dogs that were returned to their owners in the last year were returned with the help of microchips. It also showed that an average of 12 stray and abandoned dogs an hour are handled by local authorities.

Resistance Is Futile! You Will Be Assimilated! Biometric ID Super Structure To Offer New Layer Of Compulsion... To Know Everything About You... Make You Dependent On The Collective
A week or two away from the land of surveillance and you realize what a very strange place Britain has become. On my return from holiday I understood one frightening truth, which is that surveillance systems and databases have become as much a part of the country's infrastructure as the road or rail networks. There is no return from this point. All we can hope to do is find politicians at the next election who have a real understanding of the pace of technology and its implications for privacy, and they begin to find means of controlling data gathering and surveillance. This requires effort in the political classes as well as among voters. I see no evidence of that. During the last dozen years we have constantly been assured that government databases are there to help us and that they will be tightly controlled to guarantee individual liberty. A key part of this promise is the guarantee that systems will not link up to share information. That is baloney. The whole point of the project to create a super structure that will know everything about us and will make each one of us dependent on the database.

Vending Machines Will Take Finger Scans Instead of Cash
The day has arrived where all the money in the world is at your finger tips. Or rather, all the money in your credit card is in your finger veins. Biometric scanners are popping up everywhere, and now Hitachi has debuted the first vending machine that will accept a finger scan instead of cash or coins. By linking the scan to a credit card account, customers can simply place their finger in the machine and purchase whichever snack goods they desire most. It’s probably the best reward you’ll ever get for giving a vending machine the finger. The biometric sensor in Hitachi’s new vending machine uses light to scan and read the number and orientation of veins in your finger tip without directly touching a sensor. This provides a unique code for access to a credit card account that has to be established independently of the vending machine. While the machine is only a prototype, and Hitachi hasn’t yet decided whether or not to make a commercial version, the concept itself is more than enough to be causing a buzz. It’s far from the first use of a biometric sensor, but it has the potential to be the most commonly seen application of the technology.ntain the biometric identities of bomb builders and terrorists. There have been numerous matches.

Kevin H. McLaughlin, VeriChip Corporation's CEO said of the event that "High-profile regional leaders are accepting the VeriChip, representing an excellent example of our approach to gaining adoption of the technology." The new and aggressive indoctrination program - Thought and Opinion Leaders to Play Key Role in Adoption of VeriChip - is intended to create widespread acceptance and exponential adaptation of the company's FDA-cleared, human-implantable RFID tag.

Microsoft: The Future Of Microchips Is In DNA
IBM said it was looking to DNA "origami" for a powerful new generation of ultra-tiny microchips. The US computer giant collaborated with California Institute of Technology researchers to develop a way to design microchips that mimic how chains of DNA molecules fold, allowing for processors far smaller and denser than any seen today. "This is a way to assemble an electronics device of the future," said Bill Hinsberg, manager of the lithography group at IBM's Almaden Research Center in California, on Monday. "It offers a potential way to construct nano-scale devices. The industry has always gone in the direction of making things smaller, because that opens the realm of possibilities." A tenet of the chip industry is Moore's Law, a history-backed belief that the number of transistors that can be placed on a computer circuit doubles every two years, enabling smaller but increasingly powerful computing devices.

Nanotechnology Expands Onto Store Shelves, Into Foods, Health Products, More
Environmentalists and other activists complain that nanotechnology is so diverse and poorly understood that it is slipping under the radar of regulators - teensy materials, they warn, could pose big dangers to humans and ecosystems. “There is concern about toxicity and mobility,’’ said Richard Denison, senior scientist with the Environmental Defense Fund. For example, studies in mice have suggested that so-called carbon nanotubes - tiny cylinders of carbons with extraordinary electrical and structural properties - might also have an asbestos-like ability to penetrate tissue and trigger disease. In British research last year, mice injected with nanotubes developed lesions similar to those that appear in human lungs after persistent exposure to asbestos.

How To Sell The Beastly Mark: Schools Sign Up For Biometric Hand Scanners "To Ensure Parents Leave With Right Kids"
The school installed BioSafe, a biometric security solution developed specifically for the Boyd School by systems integrator New Year Tech. The system requires that adults dropping off children enter a PIN code and scan the back of their hand using Identica’s VP-II vascular scanner, said Soy Chu, president and CEO of New Year Tech. Using a touchscreen computer, adults select their children and enter any information pertaining to recent feedings, medication or other information for teachers. The system allows the adults to enter the building and notifies the teacher of the child’s expected arrival. Once the student enters the classroom, the teacher electronically checks them in and will subsequently sign children in and out of classrooms throughout the school day, allowing administrators to know the location of all children at all times. “Once a parent has checked in their child, during any type of emergency we know exactly who’s in the building and whom to evacuate,” said Smith. “The system prints out the child’s picture and information and teachers take that out with them and makes sure all kids are accounted for.”

Mark of The Beast Update (by Mike Mickey)
Everyone - yes, everyone - is going to have to receive a mark in their right hand or forehead in order to be able to buy and sell in the Tribulation Period to come. Precisely what this mark is going to consist of is uncertain, but, as I have extensively documented through the years, the current trend where economic transactions are concerned is taking us further and further away from physical currency in favor of making payment for goods and services electronically, either through credit/check cards or RFID-related payment mechanisms. This, potentially, is giving us a glimpse into the prophetic future, giving us insight into how something physically connected to the right hand or forehead (tattooed, implanted, or both) will be the only acceptable or, more likely, functional way to make financial transactions.

Opinion: The Mark Of the Beast "On" Or "In" The Hand? (by John Hinton)
The translation "on the hand or forehead" is not hard to understand. The usual meaning of the preposition epi is most often "on" and it is how most would have translated this verse at first sight.
