This is the slide deck of the presentation I made at the Continuity Insights conference in New York City on 12 November 2012. They say that the secret of making a good presentation is to provide information that the audience hasn’t figured out themselves, and certainly I hope to do this, this morningIf I could summarize the thrust of my argument today, it would be this: technology and the context in which communications take place have changed, increasing complexity and making current traditional approaches obsoleteWhen Luke phoned last week to ask me if I could extend the presentation to 90 minutes, I agreed without hesitation.

Although we had two other firms conduct pre-Joint Commission inspections, they were not as thorough, nor did they provide any follow up services. TM I-SiteTM laser scanning expertise and software technology is being used to map the geology and layout of the deepest underground laboratory to be established in the USA.
The Deep Underground Science and Engineering Lab (DUSEL) in the former Homestake gold mine in Lead, South Dakota, will provide for scientific studies in particle and nuclear physics, geology, hydrology, geo-engineering, biology, and biochemistry. The project, funded by the National Science Foundation, will allow geoscientists and engineers to research the behaviour of subsurface rock, minerals, water and energy sources.
A key reason for selecting Maptek to carry out the underground scanning of drifts is the experience of technical personnel in both mining and laser scanning, as well as in data filtering and modelling. Homestake, the deepest mine in North America with galleries at 8000 ft (2438 m), is well suited for experiments that require extremely low cosmogenic backgrounds. In April 2009 Maptek technical services staff scanned 2 drifts at the 300-foot level, capturing 8 million points - 8 Gb data - for geological mapping and evaluating structures. I-Site Studio software has been designed with mine surveyors in mind; DUSEL has a few extra requirements. These tools provided the ability to combine lower resolution scan data with high resolution photographic imagery.
Maptek has been developing 3D mining technology for 30 years, helping mining companies worldwide to maintain their competitive advantage.
Editorial input has been requested for International Mining’s Novermber focus on GPS and surveying.
International Mining’s October issue, currently in final production, includes a focus on the mining industry of Kazakhstan, where one of the major mining companies is Kazakhmys, the world’s No.10 copper producer. BASF’s MEYCO Equipment unit and Sandvik Mining and Construction have signed an agreement on global co-operation in the fields of tunneling and mining. Advances in geological concepts and technology are the cornerstone of the competitiveness of the mining industry. Marilyn Scales is a field editor for the Canadian Mining Journal, Canada’s first mining publication. The SF 17-22 was specifically designed for applications in industries such as hospitals, laboratories, breweries, universities or pharmaceuticals. The SF multi-duplex consists of 1 or 2 elements, backed up respectively by 1 or 2 additional elements, integrated in a sound insulated enclosure.  This SF multi-duplex design is compliant with all the stringent redundancy standards within the medical sector. Atlas Copco's 100% oil-free scroll compressor technology protects both the production process and the end product quality while fulfilling the most stringent requirements for pure and clean oil-free air.
By optimizing cooling flow design, pressure drop and lower inlet air temperature, Atlas Copco has increased reliability and performance level.  This results in a free air delivery (FAD) up to 51% higher and specific energy requirements (SER) down 6% for the new SF 17-22 range when comparing to the previous multi-scroll range. The integrated Energy Saver System (ESi) monitors and controls the running hours of each element module, allowing for equal wear so service visits can be combined, optimizing your production process and minimizing downtime.  Convenient access to each element module renders for minimum maintenance time. The SF 17-22 can easily be placed at the point of use due to the silenced enclosure 65 dB(A) with integrated dryer full feature concept reducing installation costs and minimizing pressure drops saving energy.
According to PECO, 715,000 of their customers lost power during the storm and as this article is posted, nearly 300,000 PECO customers are still in the dark.  It is the utility company’s worst-ever winter outage incident and second only to Superstorm Sandy for the most outages during any one event.

The tabs allow for easy assembly of your organization's Joint Commission accredited policies for the Physical Environment documentation and for ease of demonstrating compliance during a survey.

A unique feature of BRAND's service is working with facility directors and maintenance staff to address all aspects of owning and operating a hospital facility and maintaining code and oversight agency compliance.
The benefit of retaining BRAND - a full service turn key consulting and repair provider, is an overall improvement in daily operations, operation continuity within the facility, a substantial reduction in unresloved code deficiencies and cost associated with code compliance. As the “Environment of Care” and “Life Safety” surveyors stated, “it is very, very rare that a hospital does not receive at least one citation on its documentation”.
Prior to the survey, your updates from other healthcare organizations, kept us abreast of changes and varying Joint Commission targets. These drifts were last mined in 1920, and lacked geological mapping to the level of detail required. Maptek's software has the unique features we need to get the right output for the project,' commented Dr Zbigniew (Ziggy) J.
Maptek developed new tools to manage the massive volume of captured data, maintaining the required accuracy and detail for analysis.
Modelled surfaces incorporating photographic detail could then be constructed from this data and exported for use in Maptek VulcanTM for geotechnical analysis.
On that subject, news comes from the USA that MaptekTM I-SiteTM laser scanning expertise and software is being used to map the geology and layout of the old Homestake gold mine in Lead, South Dakota. Paus reports that since 2007 it has delivered a total of 34 personnel transporters to Kazakhmys.
Lack of proper coolant system maintenance is the biggest killer of engines according to David Armstrong, CEO of MECHRONIK. In a first step they have agreed to initiate co-operation in the service and maintenance of machines for sprayed concrete. The wholly owned Evonik group subsidiary supplies products to customers in the mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, and surface treatment industries. Ensuring that technical knowledge and opportunity is optimised in mining and exploration has become a core priority in the current period of economic uncertainty. JOHN’S — The 66th Mines Ministers Conference was urged once again to take active measures in support of the Canada’s mineral industry.
The new oil-free scroll compressor SF 17-22 kW is the result of Atlas Copco's striving for continuous innovation. We can share the information so more people are aware of the service, and it helps us others learn from what you have done. During the survey, your articles and guidance on responses to the Joint Commission helped us immeasurably. Hladysz from the South Dakota School of Mines, which is involved in site inspections and creation of 3D structural models.
The I-Site integrated hardware-software system combines 3D laser scanner and high resolution digital panoramic photography with advanced software processing capabilities.
The Deep Underground Science and Engineering Lab (DUSEL) will provide for scientific studies in particle and nuclear physics, geology, hydrology, geo-engineering, biology, and biochemistry. In these underground copper mines, the Minca 18 carries miners quickly, safely and comfortably through the mine to their workplaces.
The company meets the extensive and strict requirements of the international gold mining industry as a supplier of cyanides in accordance with the provisions of the "International Cyanide Management Code" (ICMC).
This revolutionary range opens a new world of possibilities for the most sensitive applications. Icy sidewalks and roads posed a threat to public safety and snarled traffic across the region.  Here at Lutheran Disaster Response-Eastern PA, we have been busy since the ice storm hit, working with local agencies and officials to coordinate support and lend a helping hand.
60 employees worldwide, production sites in Europe and sales and distribution offices on all continents provide customers swift and reliable service. Increased customer flexibility, reduced operating costs and improved ease of use are the most significant achievements.

The chairman of the board at ESL a€” then proprietor of the desert wasteland in Nevada known as a€?Area 51a€? a€” was William Perry, who would be appointed secretary of defense several years later.
EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr.

Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid. Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines.
If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia.
They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories. The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity.
However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results.
One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed. However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem.
Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities.
One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have.
The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach. Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour. Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close.
Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with.
There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants. Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip.
If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments. Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime.
We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit.
The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling.
I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms. Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
