MasterCard launches Credit Card with Built-In Fingerprint Scanner

MasterCard has unveiled its brand new payment card that has a built-in biometric fingerprint scanner, allowing customers to authorize payments with their fingerprint, without requiring a PIN code or a signature.

If you want the new biometric card, you are currently required to go to your bank branch in order to have your fingers scanned and registered for the new tech. Your fingerprints will then be converted into an encrypted digital template that is stored on the card's EMV chip.

You can save up to two fingerprints, but both would have to be yours — you can not authorise someone else, even from your family, to use your card with their fingers.

PRESS RELEASE

"Nanogirl" Dr Michelle Dickinson Reneges on Fluoride Debate

The question has to be asked - why after denigrating opponents of fluoridation and claiming that she has the science on her side, will Dr Dickinson not front up to a public debate like she agreed?

Auckland University Professor Michelle Dickinson, aka science blogger “Nanogirl” has backed down on debating Professor Paul Connett, Senior Advisor to the Fluoride Action Network. Dr Dickinson agreed in an email correspondence on Sunday with Fluoride Free New Zealand (FFNZ) that "she was happy to debate" and that "it was a debate that needs to happen". She said she would debate Prof Connett, providing it was on a mainstream television channel. The Nation and Q+A TV programmes both said they were willing to host the fluoridation debate.

Historic PACER Plus agreement finally concluded

Trade Minister Todd McClay says the successful conclusion of PACER Plus negotiations is a landmark day for trade and the sustainable economic development of the Pacific.

"PACER Plus is a unique trade and development agreement. It includes a development package of more than $55 million that will help raise standards of living, create employment opportunities and increase export capacity in Pacific Island countries,” Mr McClay says.

The agreement which was reached in Brisbane today by Pacific Island, New Zealand and Australian Trade Ministers includes tariff phase out periods which recognise the vulnerable nature of many Pacific economies and the strong relationship they share with Australia and New Zealand.

Native Affairs – High Hopes

Marijuana growers on the East Coast are being encouraged to turn their green fingers to the much more legal commercial activity of growing hemp – and it may be more profitable.

Hikurangi Enterprises planted a trial crop in a secret location just outside Ruatoria. The location remained secret until the crop was recently harvested.

"This is really a trial about being able to grow a crop, engaging the community and developing some knowledge moving forward into the possibility of growing bigger crops, or making it an option for landowners to be able to utilise," says Panapa Ehau, Managing Director of Hikurangi Enterprises.

The Education of Donald J. Trump

Just as Hollywood is not run by people who love movies, DC is not run by people who are committed to principles. Both are run by people who want power, for the most part. It’s all about power and that’s all it’s about.

Power feeds on power, but power does not run away, with its tail between it’s legs, just because the new Populist President in the White House has “the people” on his side. In fact, I would argue that the Power Elite would sooner destroy America, crash the world economy or lead us into a world war, before they would give up their power. And history shows us plenty of evidence that this is the case.

InfoWars' Alex Jones is a 'performance artist playing a character', according to his lawyer

Mr Jones is now embroiled in a custody battle with his estranged wife, Kelly Jones, with whom he has three children. She said some of Mr Jones’s on-air rants – for which he is renowned – are evidence of him being “not a stable” father.

However, Randall Wilhite, Mr Jones’s attorney, said the behaviour was merely an act.

“He’s playing a character. He is a performance artist.” Mr Wilhite said, according to the Austin-American Statesman.
