Why would the US cover up earlier landings? Despite the collaboration with Mike Resnick, this book has the same problem. The answer to the above questions are mind-blowingly awesome
In this project the emphasis was placed on the actual needs and demands of intensified security in global container transport movements by companies and by public authorities.
To this end 26 partners from ten different European countries concentrated jointly on electronic data traffic, developed a new Data Sharing concept based on a risk-based approach for both sides: Identified assumption was that the effectiveness of controls increases when the supervisor enhances surveillance on transports with potentially greater risk whereas more trustworthy movements may be handled more quickly and more cost effectively.
This implies optimisation of security demands on transport chains is a great opportunity to expand the evaluation of identified risks. The preceding requirement to efficiently exchange secure and trusted data over the whole supply chain contains, that all participating parties border authorities, logistics and IT businesses, customs and various bodies at the ports must agree on needed processes.
This improvement enabled open, flexible and standardised communication amongst all partners.
Furthermore, IT interfaces supporting customs and businesses with regards to transparency in supply chains and risk management have been successfully integrated. Another component implemented was the piggy-backing principle: Within the framework of risk management, businesses may share supply chain data, while the same data from government bodies may be optimally reused for their risk targeting systems.
Existing data channels were intensively investigated and served as examples in Living Labs of three global trade lanes: Particular attention was paid to data accuracy and the restrictions to businesses concerning data exchange and data security.
Beside usual project dissemination activities like brochures, workshops and conference sessions a Serious Game was created.Introduction to the Cassandra Project Introduction to a new urban design concept: Psychobiological Urbanism, physical and mental equilibrium of the individual in the urban environment.
20 specialists compete internationally in the design of the future city, from the Smart City to the Intelligent Community. This effort is part of DEA’s Project Cassandra, which targets a global Hizballah network responsible for the movement of large quantities of cocaine in the United States and Europe.
This global network, referred to by law enforcement as the Lebanese Hizballah External Security Organization Business Affairs (BAC), was founded by deceased. Project Cassandra is an effort led by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to undercut Hezbollah funding from illicit drug sources.
Launched in , the project was said to be investigating the terrorist organization's funding. Until this week, few Americans knew of Project Cassandra, a decade-long operation run by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its Special Operations Division. Apache Cassandra is a free and open-source, distributed, wide column store, NoSQL database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure.
The Cassandra Project falls far below expectations of a McDevitt book. The writing is stilted, the story line makes you hope something worth reading is on the next page, and when there is the same as before, well, it is dissappointing, to say the least.
