(NaturalNews) Although it may seem unbelievable, this is not a satire piece or a joke. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control, which has been deeply engaged in the fictions of Swine Flu and other so-called “pandemics,” is now publicly warning Americans to prepare for a zombie apocalypse.

In a May 16th blog entry on the website (…), author Ali S. Khan asks the question, “Where do zombies come from and why do they love eating brains so much?” The article then goes on to suppose that “zombies would take over entire countries, roaming city streets eating anything living that got in their way. The proliferation of this idea has led many people to wonder – How do I prepare for a zombie apocalypse?”

The CDC has apparently been listening to my hip-hop song Vaccine Zombie (…) and decided to run with the concept. Vaccines, of course, are the real source of zombies because they eat your brain (and cause autism, too). For some reason, the CDC didn’t mention that…

Just days before local elections in Spain, 15,000 protesters have gathered in the main Puerta del Sol square of Madrid, protesting planned austerity measures.

The Spanish demonstrations have spread across the country to Sevilla, Granada and Valencia, encouraged by youth groups and social media campaigns.

The Madrid electoral board banned demonstrations, but thousands defied the prohibition, setting up camp in the square, with more people arriving each day.

Though riot police have been deployed in some cities, they have not intervened in the protests. Simon Hunter at the Spanish newspaper El Pais reported that the Cadiz mayor has said, “If they’re demonstrations are independent, they have every right to be there.”

The chant has gone up in support of the…

Smile! Air Force wants to track you forever with a single camera click

Don’t bother with the iris scanner or the fingerprinting machine. Leave the satellite-enabled locators and tell-tale scents back on the base, military manhunters. If an Air Force plan works out as planned, all you’ll need to track your prey is a single camera, snapping a few seconds of footage from far, far away.

Huntsville, Alabama’s Photon-X, Inc. recently received an Air Force contract to develop such a camera. With one snap, the company claims, its sensor can build a three-dimensional image of a person’s face: the cornerstone of a distinctive “bio-signature” that can be used to track that person anywhere. With a few frames more, the device can capture that face’s unique facial muscle motions, and turn those movements into a “behaviormetric” profile that’s even more accurate.

“The proposed work will help identify non-cooperative dismounts using remote sensors, from standoff distances that were previously impossible,” reports Toyon Research Corporation, which also got an Air Force grant for bio-signature development. “This identity information can help intelligence analysts connect specific people to events and locations, and learn about insurgent operations.”

But the combo won’t just help flesh-and-blood airmen keep tabs on their…
