How Full-Body Scanners Work – and Fail

TSA has been introducing full-body scanners to perform a virtual strip search of air travelers. Although technically travelers have the right to opt out, the TSA discourages this behavior with aggressive and invasive pat-down searches. Initially, TSA denied punitive pat-down searches. Then they acknowledged testing a “more aggressive pat-down technique.” TSA began a more widespread implementation of this tactic at the beginning of November, and TSA agents have reportedly been quite open about that fact that the “enhanced” pat-down searches are specifically aimed to be so offensive as to coerce passengers into the scanners. In a blog post otherwise bluntly supportive of full-body scanning (the title, “Shut Up And Get In The Scanner,” gives a good idea of the tone of the writing), one former TSA screener writes:

It is a terror tactic by TSA to get you to walk through the more thorough body scanner.  I can’t defend TSA on this one.  I have talked to the TSA officers and it is no more effective than the old pat down procedure.  They tested it out with trainers and each other.  It is purely a terror tactic by TSA.

Other bloggers (with sharper tongues and stronger stomachs than I) have exhaustively documented the steaming mass of epic fail that is the TSA’s new policy. The aim of this post is to explain how full-body scanners work – and fail.

There are two kinds of full-body scanners: those based on backscatter X-ray technology and those based on millimeter wave technology.

From the entry 'Twilight of Freedom'.

Free speech is one paradox to use Hereward’s word.  Another paradox is freedom of choice. Hereward has touched on something here, I reckon, when it comes to exposing little children with jabs that cause some to have adverse affects incliding some reported siezures.  The idea of ‘freedom of choice’ is treated as an article of faith by some people only when it suits them.  Look at this comment on same-sex ‘marriage’ by Fairfax media columnist Clementine Ford (The Age, Feb 3, 2015). Quote, “The pursuit of marriage equality is vital, not least of which is because every Australian of legal age should have the right to embrace or reject it as they see fit and according to their own system of values.”  So what happens if we replace the idea of ‘same sex marriage’ with “vacination’? An interesting mental excercise. . . . . .

Yeah well of course they spy on people using gmail, read the international terrorist laws. The politicians gave themselves exclusive rights to spy on who they like when they like however they like.
They are aiming for an 1984 type deal in my opinion and they will continue to aim for that as longs as we let them, the sad part being that 90% of the people in our country do just let them.
I say good on ya for speaking the truth but the more relevant topic would be the reduction in our rights that abott has made since he sat in the seat. he is going one further than just spying by giving ASIO the right to arrest anyone they want for no apparent reason. that’s new news.
The fact that government agencies pay for our private information has been an issue for a long time.
Since there was an internet to spy with I’d say. The internet just isn’t a private entity regardless of how anyone sells their website.

Crypto Currencies will rocket in value as the FIAT system devalues itself.

Only problem is, 50% of cryptos are produced in their first year normally.

This is a pretty big deal in my opinion thus I’m calling for a Bitcoin-do-over.
