 February 16 - AI-Powered Body Cams Give Cops The Power To Google Everything They See
 Article: Miscellaneous

Comment from UTT:

The world we now live in has no hidden locations. Artificial intelligence along with police enforcement has linked everyone to everything. Such a system has long been expected in light of the Bible. While once considered to be science fiction by Bible skeptics, skepticism is now replaced by reality that has been introduced by technology

The police body camera industry is the latest to jump on the artificial intelligence bandwagon, bringing new powers and privacy concerns to a controversial technology bolstered by the need to hold police accountable after numerous high-profile killings of unarmed black citizens. Now, that tech is about to get smarter.

Last week, Taser, the stun gun company that has recently become an industry leader in body-mounted cameras, announced the creation of its own in-house artificial intelligence division. The new unit will utilize the company's acquisition of two AI-focused firms: Dextro, a New York-based computer vision startup, and Misfit, another computer vision company previously owned by the watch manufacturer Fossil. Taser says the newly formed division will develop AI-powered tech specifically aimed at law enforcement, using automation and machine learning algorithms to let cops search for people and objects in video footage captured by on-body camera systems. Moreover, the move suggests that body-worn cameras, which are already being used by police departments in many major cities, could soon become powerful surveillance tools capable of identifying different objects, events, and people encountered by officers on the street - both retroactively and in real time.

 February 17 - Pope: 'Time Is Running Out, We Must Act'
 Article: One World Government

Comment from UTT:

Pope Francis continues to take the position of the "man" that has the "plan" to solve the global problems faced by the planet. While old and near the end of his life, he may be the perfect example of a forerunner that will meet these goals. For now, his recommendations provide insight and understanding to what will be accomplished in the near future.

Time is running out to confront this ecological crisis. We must act. I appeal for Creation to be defended.And remember, no people are 'criminal,' nor religion, 'terrorists.' But there are people out there who are fundamentalists Pope Francis made these points in his message to the participants of a national meeting of popular movements in Modesto, California. The encounter, Feb. 16-18, was organized with support from Vatican's new dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development, led by Cardinal Peter Turkson, the U.S. Catholic Campaign for Human Development and the National Network of People Improving Communities through Organizing.

In his message, he touched on various themes including the harms of when there are economic abuses, not taking care of the environment, welcoming others as neighbors and not categorizing a people just because of fundamentalism.

 February 16 - Calls Israel 'biggest threat' to world peace
 Article: Israel And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
According to the Bible, Israel will be the center of world attention in the last days. However, Israel will be hated by the world and blamed for unrest, especially by countries like Iran.  There is no question that Iran has an agenda to develop weapons that would have the potential to wipe out Israel. For years they have openly claimed this is exactly what they want to do.
Iran said Thursday that Israel's atomic arsenal is the biggest danger to world peace, a day after US President Donald Trump vowed to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.
Israel is the "biggest threat to the peace and security in the region and the world," Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said, quoted by state news agency IRNA.

 February 17 - Pope: Unity in Diversity, where there is no dialogue there is violence
 Article: One World Religion

Comment from UTT:
Pope Francis continues to take on and promote the role of peacemaker. Of course this is a noble cause, but in light of the Bible will only be accomplished to set up the kingdom of the antichrist. The Pope has already indicated that he believes that all religions worship the same God. From a biblical perspective this is nothing more than strong delusion and the agenda of Satan.
The fundamental importance of dialogue, the search for "truth, goodness and beauty"; unity that needs differences; integration and "respect" as a response to the fear of the migrant, "but each country has to see what number it can accommodate. It's true: you cannot welcome [migrants] if there are no possibilities[for them]": These are the topics addressed by the Pope in a long question and answer session, entirely off the cuff, to the questions of four students of the University of Roma Tre, where Francis went this morning.

 February 28 - Priest: We need to praise what is good, true in the Muslim faith
 Article: Ecumenical Movement

Comment from UTT:
While the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church continually attempt to show the similarities between Islam and Christianity, this is not the Christianity found in the Bible based on who Jesus is and what He has done. Muslims do not believe that God has a Son therefore do not believe in the Jesus of the Bible. Therefore, the God of Islam is another God and Muslims need to be told the truth.


Not only is there a good deal in common between Muslims and Christians, but Catholics are called to respect and work together with those who practice the Muslim faith in recognition of truth and goodness they do possess, said Islam scholar Fr. Thomas Michel.
