DARPA starts a 5G open-source stack project with the Linux Foundation

By Kelly Hill, Feb 18, 2021 | Original RCR Wireless Article here


The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has begun a broad collaboration with the Linux Foundation, hoping to spur open-source development of technologies for use by the U.S. government that include secure 5G network software and applications.

The US GOV OPS (Open Programmable, Secure) umbrella organization’s first project, OPS-5G, will focus on a software stack for 5G, the network edge and IoT. According to a newly established website about the project, OPS-5G will define and test an “end-to-end 5G stack” and include elements from multiple Linux Foundation projects, including LF Networking, LF Edge, Zephyr Project and Cloud Native Computing Foundation, along with other top-tier projects that call the Linux Foundation home.

“The project formation encourages ecosystem players to support U.S. government initiatives to create the latest in technology software,” according to DARPA and the Linux Foundation. According to the two organizations, OPS-5G’s goal is to “create open source software and systems enabling secure end to end 5G and follow-on mobile networks” and address “feature velocity” in open-source software, mitigate security concerns such as large-scale botnets that leverage IoT devices, network slicing on “suspect gear” and “adaptive adversaries operating at scale.”

Mike Woster, head of ecosystems at the Linux Foundation, said that the Linux Foundation’s breadth of projects means that between existing open source projects and new ones that may be initiated under the US GOV OPS umbrella, it will be possible to stitch together a “full, 5G end-to-end 5G reference architecture.” The umbrella project also gives DARPA a place to push the results of its research and development into open-source collaborations. The overall goal is to accelerate 5G software development ranging from specific applications to network feature support, and orchestration and analytics, by borrowing from and building upon existing open-source projects and new ones.

The US GOV OPS project will launch as a standard open source project, with a charter similar to other projects within the Linux Foundation; which already is home to a number of projects related to Open RAN, edge computing, Kubernetes and others that will enable US GOV OPS to “build on a secure code base for use by the U.S. government,” according to a release.

Lawsuit Seeks Moratorium on New Cellphone Towers in Lake Tahoe Basin

Adapted from an article by Scott Sonner, Feb 15, 2021 | Original Associated Press article here.


A cell tower disguised as a pine tree is seen in a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles on Friday, Feb. 5, 2021. A federal lawsuit seeking a moratorium on construction of cell phone towers at Lake Tahoe claims Verizon Wireless and regional regulators fail to adequately consider potential harm to public health and the environment under antiquated rules that turn a blind eye to modern technology.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A federal lawsuit seeking a moratorium on construction of new cellphone towers at Lake Tahoe claims Verizon Wireless and regional regulators are failing to adequately consider potential harm to public health and the environment under antiquated rules that turn a blind eye to modern technology.

A local resident and conservation groups who filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Sacramento say they’re trying to protect the same majestic views Mark Twain wrote about in the 1860s at the mountain lake straddling the California-Nevada line. They accuse Verizon and the Tahoe Regional Protection Agency of engaging in the kind of shenanigans Huckleberry Finn and other Twain fictional characters used to dupe unsuspecting victims.

The lawsuit alleges Verizon and its local agent, Sacramento-Valley Limited Partnership, laid the groundwork for the most recently proposed 112-foot (34-meter) tower in South Lake Tahoe, California with false promises to bring a high-speed broadband network to everyone at the lake.

The suit says:

"In what appears to be a classic `bait and switch’ scheme, the telecoms had promised fiber-optic infrastructure at Tahoe in exchange for massive subsidies but now push their wireless agenda for greater profits."

“The telecoms routinely claim that further facilities are justified to meet a ‘coverage gap’ and provide for additional capacity, but they have actually created that `gap’ and lack of capacity themselves by failing to provide the promised fiber network.”

New MacBook Pro Expected in Q3 2021

By Hartley Charlton, Feb 14, 2021 | Original MacRumors article here.

New MacBook Pro models are expected to arrive later this year with some of the biggest improvements to the product line to date, including some surprising changes, so now is not the best time to buy a new MacBook Pro.

The MacBook Pro models will use the same heat pipe design used by the current 16-inch MacBook Pro model, which Kuo says is much better than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air because it will allow for increased computing power. Kuo says that we can expect to see the new MacBook Pro models released in the third quarter of 2021.

The current ‌M1‌ chip has four high-performance processing cores and four power-saving cores. For its next generation chip targeting MacBook Pro and ‌iMac‌ models, Apple is said to be working on designs with as many as 16 power cores and four efficiency cores.

For Apple's future high-end laptops and mid-range desktops, the company is reportedly testing 16-core and 32-core graphics parts, with even more powerful custom graphics on the horizon:

For later in 2021 or potentially 2022, Apple is working on pricier graphics upgrades with 64 and 128 dedicated cores aimed at its highest-end machines, the people said. Those graphics chips would be several times faster than the current graphics modules Apple uses from Nvidia and AMD in its Intel-powered hardware.

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is transitioning to mini-LED displays for its Mac lineups next year, meaning some or all of the machines mentioned in today's report could come with the more advanced screens.

Pivotal Commware raises 50 million USD for 5G products

By Alan Boyle on Feb 11, 2021 | Original Geekwire article here.


Pivotal Commware’s Pivot 5G outdoor network repeaters can give a millimeter-wave boost to 5G wireless communications.

Kirkland, Wash.-based Pivotal Commware says it has closed on a $50 million funding round, with backing from Bill Gates that will help it expand research, development and distribution for its millimeter-wave 5G network infrastructure products.

Tracker Capital Management, a venture capital investment firm that’s headquartered in New York, led the Series C investment round. Other participants in the financing include Devonshire Investors and Pivotal’s existing investors — including Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.

Gates has been investing in Pivotal since 2017, not long after it was spun out from Intellectual Ventures. It’s one of several Gates-backed ventures that make use of metamaterials, an exotic breed of electronics that can channel signals without moving parts.

Dominion’s Own FROG Destroys Their Claim

By Tore Says, Feb 11, 2021 | Original Tore Says article here.


Dominion has been crying on television peddling the overused heart felt story about how the company started in a basement by Greek-Canadian Poulos. Same tiny violin. FROGS are potentially the downfall of ANY tech company’s security not just Dominion.

Dominion’s attorneys sent “intimidating” letters to various persons who filed affidavits exposing the company’s deficiencies and warranted claims of malicious and intentional interference with the 2020 US elections. Sounds like witness intimidation or at the very least tampering with witnesses and evidence.

"Dominion was created in John Poulos’s basement in Toronto to help blind people vote on paper ballots. Its systems are certified under standards promulgated by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (“EAC”). This involves a rigorous review and testing process conducted by independent laboratories accredited by the EAC, and Dominion designed the voting systems to be auditable and include a paper ballot backup to verify results. Because of these safeguards, there is overwhelming direct evidence that conclusively disproves claims about Dominion manipulating vote counts — namely, the millions of paper ballots that were audited and recounted by bipartisan election officials, confirming that Dominion accurately counted votes on paper ballots."

~ Part of intimidation letter

Factually, the 2002 Help America Vote Act (HAVA) has been violated because the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (“EAC”) has NOT certified them: the Voting System Test Laboratories (VSTLs) were not certified.

5G is a Fizzle With Consumers

Doug Dawson, Feb 9, 2021 | Original POTS and Pans article here.


The cellular companies have made an unprecedented push to get customers interested in 5G. Back in November, I recorded a college football game which enabled me to go back and count the twelve (12) 5G commercials during the game. Advertising during sports events is relatively expensive, so these ads were not purchased at bargain-basement prices. The amount of money being spent to advertise 5G must be gigantic.

It looks like all of that advertising is not having the impact that the cellular companies want. JD Powers conducted a series of large surveys near the end of 2020 and found that the public was less than enamored by 5G, even after all of the advertising. In good news for the cellular carrier, the advertising has created awareness of 5G and 92% of those surveyed had heard of 5G. However, only 26% believe that 5G is faster than existing 4G cellphone broadband. The response that cellular carriers will find troubling is that only 5% of those surveyed would pay more to get 5G. Only 4% are willing to switch cellular providers to get 5G.

The only companies that are making money on 5G are the cellphone manufacturers. Throughout the fall all of the big cellphone companies put a big push on having 5G in the phone. However, that advertising might not be having the desired impact and I’ve noticed that recent cellphone ads focus on the cameras in the newer phones instead of 5G.

Courts Are Ruling in Favor of Trump in Election Lawsuits

By Bob Adelmann Feb 9, 2021 | The New American article here.

Courts Are Ruling in Favor of Trump in Election Lawsuits

A careful analysis of 81 lawsuits related to election fraud have been filed. Of those that have been ruled upon, President Trump has won two-thirds of them.

An extensive report issued by John Droz and his team of fellow scientists and engineers is being totally ignored by the mainstream media. Instead, the media narrative is this:

“There was no election fraud because the courts have said so.”

Wrong on both counts, according to Droz’s analysis. Droz said:

"To counter the later part of that false narrative, a team of independent volunteer (unpaid) scientists and engineers recently put together a list of lawsuits involving the 2020 Presidential election. In it we identified the issues at stake, how each case was treated by the courts, what evidence was objectively analyzed, who won and lost . . .

We tried to walk a narrow line of not only having a comprehensive list, but also information easy enough for the public to understand. (For example, since none of us are attorneys, we consciously tried to avoid unnecessary legal jargon.)

To further assist in the understanding of this important list, we simplified 20+ pages of filings and decisions on each case into a one or two sentence summary . . . Lastly, we passed this list by over a dozen lawyers involved with election-related lawsuits. The typical response we received was “Excellent!”.

The Shadowy NY Financial Institutions That Forced Robinhood To Restrict Trading

Jan 31, 2021 | The Most Important News here.


Have you ever heard of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation? What about Cede and Company? If those names are foreign to you, then you don’t really understand how the core of our financial system really works. A lot of people are blaming Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev and the heads of other major trading platforms for the stock trading restrictions that we witnessed last week, but it was actually the DTCC that suddenly jacked up deposit requirements ten-fold. Robinhood and other trading platforms were put in a vise-like grip, and they had no choice but to act. Someone needs to investigate how these decisions were made at the DTCC, and if laws were broken those that were responsible for the decisions need to go to prison.

We are being told that retail traders needed to be brought under control “for their own good”, but it was the reckless short selling of the big hedge funds that actually set the stage of last week’s chaos.

Why doesn’t anyone ever talk about restricting the Hedge Funds’ exceedingly foolish trading strategies?

Thanks to relentless buying by “the Reddit Army”, several major hedge funds got absolutely slaughtered last week, and that group included Melvin Capital

Melvin Capital, a premier Wall Street hedge fund entangled in the frenzy over GameStop (GME), lost 53% in January, a source familiar with the matter told CNN Business.

Rhetorical Hyperbole

By David L. Hudson, Jr., Feb 3, 2021 | Other articles re: Legal Terms and Concepts Related to Speech, Press, Assembly, or Petition

Rhetorical hyperbole is a First Amendment-based doctrine that often provides protection to exaggerated, over-the-top speech in defamation cases. Defined as “extravagant exaggeration employed for rhetorical effect,” the doctrine provides breathing space to freedom of speech by ensuring that that even heated and emotional rhetoric deserves free-speech protection in a free society.

Supreme Court said certain words are hyperbole, not defamation

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Greenbelt Cooperative Pub. Ass’n v. Bresler (1970) that the use of the term “blackmail” to refer to a developer’s negotiating style was rhetorical hyperbole more than an imputation of criminal conduct. The Court reasoned that “even the most careless reader must have perceived that the word was no more than rhetorical hyperbole, a vigorous epithet used by those who considered [the developer’s] negotiating position extremely unreasonable.”

A few years later, the U.S. Supreme Court again applied the rhetorical hyperbole defense to protect the union’s use of the term “scab” in Letter Carriers v. Austin (1974). The Court reasoned that the use of the term in a union dispute was an example of “loose, figurate language” rather than defamation. The Court explained that the use of the term was not conveying that the employees were actually committing crimes.
