How to hack Electronic Road Sign (VMS)

FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY

How many times have you driven by an electronic road sign like one of these?

This is the ADDCO portable sign. Today, you see what is on the inside, and how they are programmed to display important information.

WARNING YOU SHOULD NEVER TAMPER WITH THESE SIGNS

The access panel on the sign is generally protected by a small lock, but often are left unprotected. Upon opening the access panel you can see the display electronics.

The black control pad is attached by a curly cord, with a keyboard on the face.

Programming is as simple as scrolling down the menu selection to "Instant Text". Type whatever you want to display, Hit Enter to submit. You can now either throw it up on the sign by selecting "Run w/out save" or you can add more pages to it by selecting "Add page"

DO NOT ENTER PASSWORDS THAT DONT BELONG TO YOU BUT IF YOU WERE CURIOUS... Should it will ask you for a password. Try "DOTS", the default password.

In all likelihood, the crew will not have changed it. However if they did, never fear. Hold "Control" and "Shift" and while holding, enter "DIPY". This will reset the sign and reset the password to "DOTS" in the process. You're in!

Bewaffnung der automatischen Tötungsmaschinen verhindern


Morgen, 16.9. Anhörung gegen Kampfdrohnen

Seit 2013 versuchen wir zu verhindern, dass die Bundeswehr in die möderische Kriegsführung mit automatischen Drohnen einsteigt. Diese 7 Jahre waren geprägt von kleinen Erfolgen und Unterstützung von einem großen Teil der Bevölkerung, die mehrheitlich gegen die Aufrüstungspolitik der Bundesregierung und speziell auch gegen die Automatisierung des Tötens ist. So konnte die Anschaffung der Drohnen 2017 und 2018 noch verhindert werden, weil die Abgeordneten der SPD im Verteidigungs- und Haushaltsausschuss nicht der CDU folgte. Im Juni 2019 wurde jedoch den Leasingvertägen für 5 israelische Heron TP Drohnen zugestimmt und über eine Milliarde Euro an Steuergeld sinnlos verbrannt anstatt die dringenden sozialen Probleme in der Gesellschaft nach Corona anzugehen.

Die Bewaffnung dieser Drohnen mit Bomben(!) und Raketen steht nun am 5. Oktober auf der Tagesordnung des Verteidigungsausschuss. Damit soll die vom Bundestag 2013 beschlossene breite, öffentliche Debatte zu ethischen Fragen beendet sein, bevor sie überhaupt öffentlich stattgefunden hat. Im April/Mai fanden hinter verschlossenen Türen Anhörungen der Bundeswehr und einiger Mitglieder des Verteidigungsausschuss statt - gegen die wir mit einer Mahnwache am 11. Mai protestiert haben.

Wir brauchen eine breite, öffentliche Debatte zu den ethischen Fragen des automatischen Tötens!
16. September 2020, 17-19 Uhr, Online-Hearing "Kampfdrohnen für die Bundeswehr?"


Die humanitären Folgen von Kampfdrohnen sind gravierend und erfordern eine umfangreiche öffentliche Diskussion über die völkerrechtlichen, verfassungsrechtlichen und ethischen Bedenken bezüglich ihres Einsatzes durch die Bundeswehr. Die vom Bundesverteidigungsministerium im Mai begonnene Debatte über die Bewaffnung der geleasten Drohnen war überwiegend von Menschen aus dem Umfeld der Bundeswehr geprägt und hatte dadurch eine erhebliche Schlagseite.

Angesichts weiterhin ungeklärter ethischer Fragen und völkerrechtlicher Bedenken brauchen wir als Gesellschaft aber eine breite Auseinandersetzung darüber, ob wir diesen Aufrüstungsschritt und seine weitreichenden Folgen wirklich wollen. In der Debatte fehlen Stimmen von vielen Organisationen der Zivilgesellschaft, die sich schon seit Jahren mit dem Thema auseinandersetzen.

Aus diesen Gründen lädt ein breites Bündnis der Zivilgesellschaft zu militärischen Drohnen am 16. September 2020 um 17 Uhr zu einer öffentlichen Online-Debatte über die Bewaffnung der Bundeswehr-Drohnen ein.

17 Uhr: Stimmen aus der Zivilgesellschaft:

Activist Michael Reinoehl was killed by police as they attempted to arrest him near Seattle Thursday night, hours after VICE News shared a conversation with him in which he appeared to admit that he shot a right-wing protester last weekend.

Reinoehl, 48, was killed in an encounter with officers when a federal fugitive task force attempted to arrest him, according to The New York Times. An anonymous official told the Associated Press that Reinoehl had pulled a gun during the incident.

The official could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

An arrest warrant had been issued on the same day VICE News published a clip in which Reinoehl said he acted in self-defense in the killing of Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of the right-wing group “Patriot Prayer,” in a confrontation during a pro-Trump rally in Portland on Aug. 29.

“I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn't going to do that,” he said.
https://youtu.be/fsDWXx5tYfk
Since the shooting, Reinoehl said he’d gone into hiding, and moved his children to a safe place after shots were fired into his house just hours after the incident. He had not turned himself in, he said, because he believed right-wing protesters were collaborating with police, who would not protect him or his family.

Two weeks later, he said, he had no regrets about his actions. “If the life of anybody I care about is in danger, and there's something I can do to prevent it … I think that any good human being would do the same thing,” he said.

#Protest gegen #Rassismus am 28. August 2020


Am 28. August 2020 ruft der Jugendverband #REBELL um 18 Uhr am #Kölner #Heumarkt zu einer #Demo gegen Rassismus, #Antikommunismus und #Abschiebung auf.

Von REBELL Köln

Diese Aktion ist Teil von internationalen Protesten gegen Polizeigewalt und Rassismus, die seit dem Tod des Afroamerikaners George Floyd am 25. Mai 2020 nicht mehr abreißen. In den USA findet am 28. August ein Marsch auf Washington statt. Genau 57 Jahre vorher begann Martin Luther King dort seine berühmte Rede mit den Worten „I have a dream“.

Marie Bauer vom REBELL Köln erklärt: „Wir rufen alle Internationalistinnen und Internationalisten auf, gemeinsam mit uns Gesicht zu zeigen. Rassismus gibt es nicht nur in den USA. Er ist ist Teil des Kapitalismus und dient dazu, uns zu spalten. Wir müssen dem Übel an die Wurzel gehen. Deswegen kämpft der REBELL für den echten Sozialismus, ein System ohne Ausbeutung und Unterdrückung.“

Bundesweit rufen bisher vier Organisationen zu Protesten am 28. August unter dem Motto „Rebellion gegen Rassismus und Antikommunismus – stoppt Abschiebungen“ auf. Neben dem Jugendverband REBELL sind das die Jugendmigrantenorganisation #YDG (Neue demokratische Jugend), die Hilfsorganisation #Solidarität International und der Freundeskreis #Flüchtlingssolidarität in Solidarität International. Es gibt noch Gespräche mit weiteren Bündnissen und Organisationen. Alle Termine werden laufend unter http://rebell.info/ veröffentlicht.

Marie Bauer vom REBELL Köln führt weiter aus: „Wir richten unseren #Protest bewusst auch gegen den Antikommunismus. Uns alle eint doch der Wunsch nach einer von #Ausbeutung und #Unterdrückung befreiten #Gesellschaft. Der Antikommunismus will jede sachliche Diskussion über die gesellschaftliche #Alternative zum #Kapitalismus verhindern. Gerade die Jugend wird bevormundet, schon jeder Gedanke an den #Sozialismus mit einem Tabu belegt, mit Hetze und Lügen überzogen. #Revolutionäre werden verfolgt. Wir sagen: Gib Antikommunismus keine Chance!“

The 29 July 1962, fascist Oswald Mosley attempted to march through Manchester. However he was attacked by anti-fascists who knocked him to the ground, and had to be rescued and escorted by 250 police, who were unable to prevent the fascist being pelted with tomatoes, eggs, coins and stones.

Following the march Mosley attempted to speak but he was drowned out by a crowd of 5000 anti-fascists who forced police to call off the meeting after just seven minutes. Clashes between local residents and Blackshirts continued for some time, and the police arrested 47 people.

WCH speak to someone who was there that day in the bonus episode to our podcast miniseries about anti-fascism in the 1940s.

San Quentin Prisoners Go On Hunger Strike Amid Massive COVID-19 Outbreak

About 20 people in the prison’s Badger section have been on hunger strike for the past few days, three people incarcerated there say.


As the novel coronavirus spreads rapidly through California’s San Quentin State Prison, around 20 prisoners have launched a hunger strike to protest inhumane conditions inside, three men incarcerated in the facility said.

The hunger strike began on Monday, according to the men, who are incarcerated in the prison’s Badger unit. As of Wednesday, 1,135 prisoners—almost a third of San Quentin’s incarcerated population—have active COVID-19 infections. At least one prisoner has died....

MORE 'Senior janitor', 'Major yardman', 'Leading dishwasher' and 'Chief servant'! .... or "Microsoft: Addressing racial injustice"

N.B.! Sounds strange: I have always believed that to achieve the best performance and quality, every company needs good specialists, not black, white or brown idlers.

Addressing racial injustice



Jun 23, 2020
Microsoft Corporate Blogs

An email from CEO Satya Nadella to Microsoft employees:

As I shared in our Employee Town Hall last month, and in my email earlier this month, we are committed to take action to help address racial injustice and inequity, and unequivocally believe that Black lives matter. Below you will see many of the steps we are taking.

Over the past several weeks, the senior leadership team, board of directors, and I have spent time reflecting, listening, learning, and discussing what role the company – and all of us collectively – must play in helping to drive change, both within Microsoft and in our communities. With significant input from employees and leaders who are members of the Black and African American community, we have developed a set of actions that we believe are both meaningful to improving the lived experience at Microsoft, as well as driving change in the communities in which we live and work.

Today, we are making commitments to address racial injustice and inequity for the Black and African American community in the United States. We will additionally take important steps to address the needs of other communities, including the Hispanic and Latinx community, across the company in the next five years. We are focused on three multiyear, sustained efforts:

- Increasing our representation and culture of inclusion. We will build on our diversity and inclusion (D&I) momentum from the past five years by adding an additional $150M of D&I investment, and will double the number of Black and African American people managers, senior individual contributors, and senior leaders in the United States by 2025.

- Engaging our ecosystem. We will use our balance sheet and engagement with suppliers and partners to extend the vision for societal change throughout our ecosystem, creating new opportunities for them and the communities they serve.

- Strengthening our communities. We will use the power of data, technology, and partnership to help improve the lives of Black and African American citizens across our country, including to address the safety and well-being of our own employees in the communities in which they live.

Below are key details on how we will accomplish this.

Our Culture

We need to ensure that our culture of inclusion is a top priority for everyone. It starts with our values of respect, integrity, and accountability. Each of us must be able to thrive in diverse teams. Every manager must be able to attract, retain, and grow employees of all backgrounds. This is certainly true at Microsoft, and also more broadly. It is the new baseline for manager excellence across industries across the globe.

We will meet this new goal in three key ways:

1. We will accelerate our cultural transformation through further investment in inclusion. Managers who have a deep understanding and commitment to building inclusive culture are key to our company’s success. Starting in FY21, our training on allyship, covering, and privilege in the workplace will be required for all employees, with additional new content on understanding the experience of the Black and African American community. Because leadership sets the tone, we will have required live sessions for CVPs and EVPs to ensure they better understand the lived experience of these specific communities.

2. We will strengthen our intentional career planning and talent development efforts. This will apply across our workforce, beginning with Black and African American employees. These programs will expand to include other employee groups as we learn and grow. We will expand on our leadership development programs for select Black and African American midlevel employees and their managers, to help prepare for promotion to Director/Principal. For Director/Principal level, we will create a new development opportunity to expose them to the leadership expectations of the Partner/GM level and match them with senior-level sponsors and mentors. For Partner/GMs, we are continuing to invest in the dedicated leadership development programs.

3. We will further strengthen company accountability for progress on representation. We will deepen our practice of evaluating each CVP/GM’s progress on diversity and inclusion when determining their impact and rewards, as well as promotion considerations. We will provide CVPs with dedicated D&I coaches to confront and resolve systemic obstacles within their organizations. We will expand our global, quarterly promotion process to ensure we build diverse leadership teams at all levels. This will include direct engagement with business leaders on review of all candidates for people management, Director/Principal level, and Partner/GM level.

Our Ecosystem

A vast business ecosystem surrounds Microsoft from our supply chain to our partner community. We recognize that a stronger and more productive ecosystem requires better representation of the diversity in our communities. We will evolve our engagement with our supply chain, banking partners, and the broad Microsoft partner ecosystem in this effort.

1. We will double the number of Black- and African American-owned approved suppliers over the next three years and spend an incremental $500M with those existing and new suppliers. We’ll do this by ensuring our existing guidance to include diverse minority-owned suppliers in all RFPs is well understood, evaluate supplier portfolio composition, and enhance the weighting of diversity characteristics (both in ownership and in broad workforce) during the supplier evaluation and selection process. We will also encourage Black and African American representation progress in our top 100 suppliers, which account for over 50 percent of our indirect spend, by requesting annual disclosure of their diversity profile information (e.g., workforce diversity, goals) that we will incorporate into our RFP evaluations.

2. We will use our own banking needs to grow our portfolio investment activity with Black- and African American-owned financial institutions. Over the next three years, we will double the percentage of our transaction volumes through these Black- and African-American owned banks and external managers where we have existing strong banking relationships and look to grow that base, which provides an increased opportunity for these firms to attract more capital. We will create a $100M program that will make its initial investment in collaboration with the FDIC to target Minority Owned Depository

3. Institutions (MDIs), which directly enables an increase of funds into local communities (businesses, restaurants, housing, etc.). And, we will establish a $50M investment fund focused on supporting Black- and African American-owned small businesses. The fund will initially focus on investing to improve access to capital, increase skill development, and reduce the technology gaps that exist today.

4. We know how important partners are to the growth of our business. We look forward to investing to increase the number of Black- and African American-owned partners in our US partner community by 20 percent over the next three years. A new $50M partner fund will help with access to capital providing loans to support these partners through their startup phase with the loans recovered over time as their business grows. We will provide $20M of financing to existing and new partners to support their cashflow needs. And, we will invest an additional $3M in training programs covering financial management, tech solutions, and go-to-market readiness.

Our Communities

No company can change the world by itself. But we believe that Microsoft can put the power of data, technology, and partnership to work to help improve the lives of Black and African American citizens across our country. That’s what we’re committed to doing, through a four-part effort.

1. We will strengthen and expand our existing justice reform initiative with a five-year, $50 million sustained effort. Since starting this work in 2017, we’ve come to appreciate the importance of this issue not only to the nation, but to the personal lives of our employees and their families. No one should have to live with the fear of being stopped by the police, harassed while shopping, or bullied in school because of the color of their skin. This conviction has led us to do increasing work advocating both in the Puget Sound and nationally, including in the communities where our employees live.We will build on this foundation by using data and digital technology toward increased transparency and accountability in our justice system. All this work will be backed by public policy advocacy that will increase access to data to identify racial disparities and improve policing. We’ll also use our technology and expertise to support evidenced-based and unbiased diversion programs that direct people into treatment alternatives instead of incarceration. We’ll also use data to promote racial equity in the decisions made by prosecutors, including decisions about who to charge with a crime, the nature of the charge, plea offers, and sentencing recommendations.

2. We will expand our skills work to help Black and African American students and adults develop the skills needed to succeed in the digital economy. Over the next five years, we will expand in 13 states and the District of Columbia the Microsoft TEALS industry volunteer program to bring computer science education to an additional 620 high schools primarily serving Black and African American students. We will also strengthen Microsoft’s support for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, including in computer and data science programs, campus initiatives and partnerships, and curriculum development. Finally, we’ll offer digital skills training to Black and African American adults seeking new jobs. As part of a global skilling initiative, we will provide $5 million in cash grants to community-based nonprofit organizations led by and serving communities of color, enabling them to better support digital skills programs.

3. We will help expand access to broadband and devices for communities of color and the key institutions that support them in major urban centers, by working with carriers, OEMs, our own hardware team, refurbishers, and nonprofits to enrich low-cost broadband access by providing affordable PCs and Microsoft software. We’ll work to ensure these services can be put to effective use to improve people’s lives, with a focus on telehealth services and educational offerings. Backed by public advocacy, we’ll start by focusing on six cities that currently confront the largest urban broadband gaps.

4. Finally, we will increase technology support for nonprofits that support and are led by people of color. We will help support the digital transformation that we know from experience can make nonprofits more effective. We’ll provide access to Azure and Dynamics credits and financial grants that will enable these organizations to add the IT staff needed to better deploy and maximize technology. We look forward to tapping into the knowledge and expertise of our own employees as we identify effective groups we can support more strongly.

Change begins by looking inward. We expect this change in ourselves. Employees expect this change from their leaders. Our customers and partners expect this change from Microsoft. And the world demands this change.

This is not a one-time event. It will require real work and focus. We will listen and learn. We will take feedback and we will adjust. But it starts with each of us making a commitment to do the work, to help drive change, and to act with intention.

'Burnley' - 'Manchester City': #white #lives #matter

‘White Lives Matter’ plane banner overshadows Premier League game between Burnley and Manchester City



MANCHESTER, England

As the players of Manchester City and Burnley took a knee inside an empty Etihad Stadium in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, the sound of an aircraft could be heard overhead.

It had a very different message.

On this day, 18 June 1984, the battle of Orgreave took place when striking miners faced off against thousands of police as they attempted to blockade the Orgreave coking plant in England.

The police showed the lengths they would go to to break the strike, with violent attacks, mass arrests and deliberate but fortunately unsuccessful attempts to fabricate evidence and frame miners. And the BBC reversed footage of miners defending themselves from police attacks to try to pretend police were attacked first.

Coal miners were on strike against a pit closure plan by the Conservative government.

‘Gone With the Wind’ Hits No. 1 on Amazon Best-Sellers Chart After HBO Max Drops Movie

Cowardice in action. The next station is “Pulp Fiction”(?)

Jun 10, 2020
By Todd Sprangler

“Gone With the Wind” zipped to the top of Amazon’s best-sellers sales chart for TV and movies, a day after WarnerMedia’s HBO Max pulled the movie for “racist depictions.”

Amazon bases its rankings on sales data. The site currently offers the 70th anniversary two-disc DVD edition of “Gone With the Wind” starting at $29.55, while Amazon Video offers the movie as a digital HD rental at $3.99 and for purchase at $9.99. (...)

Oscar-winning film “Gone With the Wind” was removed Tuesday from the HBO Max streaming service temporarily. WarnerMedia said it plans to return to the movie to the library, along with a discussion about the historical context for the 1939 movie and a “denouncement” of the movie’s racist stereotypes.

“’Gone With The Wind’ is a product of its time and depicts some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that have, unfortunately, been commonplace in American society,” an HBO Max spokesperson told Variety. “These racist depictions were wrong then and are wrong today, and we felt that to keep this title up without an explanation and a denouncement of those depictions would be irresponsible.”

“Gone With the Wind” stars Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Hattie McDaniel and Olivia de Havilland. The film, adapted from the 1936 novel by Margaret Mitchell, is described on Amazon.com’s website as “a classic epic of the American South,” set during the Civil War and the Reconstruction era.

The movie, produced by David O. Selznick, won eight competitive Oscars including best picture, best actress for Leigh, best director for Victor Fleming and best supporting actress for McDaniel, who was the first Black person to ever win an Academy Award. The American Film Institute ranks “Gone With the Wind” as the No. 4 best American movie of all time, after “Citizen Kane,” “Casablanca,” and “The Godfather.”
