When in Rome...

Why would anyone need this information? When in Rome, you might be tracked
I wonder if BXVI was tracked too. Or anyone else from the Vatican.

That is, when Romans had their cell phones turned on. Telecom Italia, Italy's main telephone operator, has partnered with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on a real-time mapping system that tracks how people move in urban spaces.

Place Jean-Paul II - Notre Dame

In Paris, a plaza for a dead pope - and some furor in the streets

Now, add to the Parisian capital's list of honorary designations the new one that has just been assigned to the plaza in front of Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the city's most famous sites. As of Sunday, that high-traffic patch of pavement will be known as the Place Jean-Paul II (John-Paul II Plaza) in honor of the pontiff who died last year.

It Figures!

HALO Systems -Mercy Hospitals use this. Also a local hospital uses them too! St. Vincent's! Ahhh!

"Chips" Accepted by Doctors and Hospitals

VeriMed System Now Has 140 Hospitals and Approximately 300 Physicians as Part of Its Network

VeriMed, the first and only FDA-approved microchip for patient identification and access to medical information has advanced adoption in key areas of hospital and physician acceptance.

I am extremely concerned! This is very serious! Please inquire with your doctor and with the hospital (before admittance for any procedure) as to their participation or "acceptance". If they are participating find another physician and hospital. Then, make sure you formally voice your opinion of the situation with all parties--write, call, protest, alert family and friends.

No "God spot" for nuns, researchers show

Pope Benedict XVI in Assisi

Pope Notes Conditions for Interreligious Prayer Meetings
A Testimony of Fraternity, Which Must Avoid Syncretism, He Says

However, so as not to betray the spirit of John Paul II's prayer convocation in Assisi for peace, it is necessary to recall the importance he gave to avoiding "syncretistic interpretations, founded on a relativist conception," contended Benedict XVI. According to these conceptions, in which there is no absolute truth, all religions are valid, so that no essential differences exist among one another.

The Bishop of Rome clarified that interreligious prayer meetings do not seek "a religious consensus among ourselves or negotiation of our convictions of faith." Rather, they manifest that "religions can be reconciled at the level of a common commitment in an earthly project that exceeds them all." Thus they are not "a concession to relativism in religious beliefs," contended Benedict XVI.
