Chinese IT giant used pandemic to develop 5G networks

The coronavirus pandemic not only brought down the global economy , but also stimulated some high-tech industries – 5G mobile networks , robotics , cloud data systems and artificial intelligence. Some data in this area was shared by the Chinese company Huawei.

During the pandemic, network traffic around the world increased sharply – only by 40% in the first week, which is not surprising – people began to hang on the Internet in self-isolation. The time schedule for loading networks has also changed. The usual peak at 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. was added at 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. , with the main peak in the morning hours – thanks to distance education. 

The second peak is in remote workers. For example, in China, 200 million students study and another 200 million work online. According to China Mobile, traffic in distance education has grown eight times. The epidemic also affected the geographical dynamics of traffic – in business districts it fell by 59%, but grew by 32% in residential areas compared to 2019.

With the abolition of quarantine, traffic will decrease, but it will not be the same, this can be seen from statistics from those areas of China that have returned to normal life. At the peak time of the closure of Chinese cities, traffic grew 1.8 times, but after the opening of cities it still remained 30% -40% higher than before the pandemic.

Until now, killer-application for 5G networks has not appeared in the world. The need to switch to a new format was associated with the spread of unmanned vehicles. But it turned out that in the context of the rapid construction of new infectious hospital buildings, only 5G networks can quickly provide the necessary speed and coverage. So, in two new hospitals in Wuhan, 5G networks were deployed in just 72 hours, and in just seven provinces, 1951 new base stations were installed at the same time.

During the pandemic, new technologies appeared in Chinese hospitals: intelligent robots that collected throat swabs; artificial intelligence-controlled systems for remote temperature measurement; interdepartmental cloud platforms for monitoring and managing the fight against the epidemic; diagnostic systems using artificial intelligence, providing a complete decryption of computed tomography of the lungs with visualization in seconds. All this required high-speed Internet access without delay, which only 5G networks could provide in new hospitals.

Robots in hospitalsRobots in hospitals

Other consumers of the gigantic data sets were transport and medical robots, which during the epidemic began to appear in large numbers in the hospitals of Hubei, Sih, and Jinting. For example, robots for conducting epidemiological control with the functions of remote temperature measurement, disinfection and spraying, which required an upstream channel bandwidth of 30 Mbit / s with a delay of not more than 200 ms. It is clear that in such a compact time it was not possible to develop them from scratch – alteration of patrol robots went into business. There are cheaper analogues with disinfection functions only.

There appeared in the corridors of hospitals and transport robots carrying drugs and food. In some cities, unmanned vehicles were allowed to deliver food to medical personnel. All these robots and drones could not function without 5G networks.

It is clear that these new robots did not play an important role in the fight against the pandemic (unlike powerful information networks with support for artificial intelligence), but investments in these technologies during the pandemic gave a powerful impetus to their development. 

Moreover, they are not going to curtail investments, but on the contrary: the New Infrastructure program adopted in China provides for seven main sectors for accelerated development with powerful support from the state: 5G networks, industrial Internet, high-speed intercity transportation, data processing centers, and artificial intelligence systems , high-voltage power and high-speed charging stations for electric vehicles. The total budget for these programs will be 17 trillion yuan ($ 2.4 trillion). 

“Investing in the future is never too early and will continue despite the pandemic dying out”

On the night of July 16, Twitter was massively hacked. Fraudsters gained access to the accounts of celebrities and large companies and published records on them with a proposal to transfer bitcoins. Now the police have detained a group of hackers, whose “brain” was a 17-year-old teenager.

Graham Clark is now in the Hillsborough County Jail in Oregon, USA. He was the mastermind and brain behind the attack, reported on the WFLA , citing District Attorney Andrew Warren. The teenager faced 30 criminal charges, including for organized fraud and illegal use of personal data. Despite his age, he is going to be tried as an adult.

Shortly after Clark’s arrest, the US Department of Justice announced that he worked as part of the group, and told about the arrest of two more suspects. They were 22-year-old Nima Faseli and 19-year-old Mason Sheppard, who operated under the nicknames “Rolex” and “Chevon”, respectively. Faselli was charged with burglary, she faces up to 5 years in prison, and Sheppard – up to 20 for burglary and conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering. Both will also have to pay a $ 250,000 fine if the charges are confirmed.

The group hacked Twitter accounts of large companies and famous personalities. Among the victims are Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Kanye West, as well as Apple and Uber. From their names, the attackers posted ads asking them to transfer bitcoins to a teenager’s account in Tampa. 

They also gained access to internal network administration tools. It is reported that in the course of their actions several hundred people were injured, and they received 400 transfers totaling $ 100,000 in just one day. Warren described their actions as “an intricately organized attack of unprecedented magnitude.”

́After the attack, Twitter deleted posts and temporarily restricted the ability to publish for verified accounts. Later, the company said that the hacker attack was carried out using social engineering, and also noted that after the hack, their access to the network’s internal tools was limited.

Shortly after the arrest of the hackers, Twitter issued a statement thanking the local police, the IRS, the Secret Service and the FBI for their investigation. 

“We appreciate the prompt actions of law enforcement agencies and will continue to cooperate with them as the case develops,” the company said. 

They also talked about being transparent and regularly updating information about the investigation. In addition, the network has removed restrictions on the publication of posts by popular accounts and on changing passwords for some users.

The case of pedophiles among the Anglo-Saxon elite continues to kill

Pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein was friends with the world’s most influential people and paid off with business partners with orgies involving teenage girls. A year ago, he passed away under suspicious circumstances, but now his case – one of the most scandalous in the history of the United States, Britain and the largest bank of the Federal Republic of Germany – has received a second wind and continued to grow overgrown with corpses.

It is well known that the United States is a country with a heavily armed population, so killings are not infrequent, five to ten times more than in Western Europe. However, there is a category of citizens whose lives, in spite of Hollywood films, are extremely rarely attempted in America – these are federal judges.

Since Harry Truman’s time, only four of them have been killed, and the last time this happened was over 30 years ago. This is easy to explain: the point is not even that such people are well guarded, but that such an attempt would be very expensive – the entire life spent in prison, and in states where the death penalty has not been abolished, it is even more expensive.

In other words, to take up arms against a federal judge, you have to be either a psycho, or someone who has nothing to lose, or someone who, on the contrary, risks losing too much.

A few days ago, such a man knocked on the door of Judge Esther Salas’ home in New Jersey, disguised as a delivery officer. A few minutes later, Salas’s son was killed, her husband was seriously wounded, and the judge herself escaped because she was in the basement at the time of the attack.

Despite the fact that all this happened during the day, the killer managed to escape. But the FBI soon identified the main suspect – Roy Dan Hollander. He is a well-known man in his own way – he periodically participated in TV shows from the standpoint of an anti-feminist and “public defender of men.” It is not known what claims he had against the judge, but it will not be so easy to find out.

Hollander’s body was found in a remote area north of New York. The official version of the cause of his death is suicide.

Esther Salas

The version with a lone psychopath, of course, has a right to exist. But there is another circumstance that turns this whole story into a continuous stream of conspiracy theories – Salas was engaged in the case of the pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein, who, according to an equally official version, committed suicide while awaiting trial in his cell.

This case, dealt an incomparable blow to the reputation of the American political elite and the British monarchy. Let’s remember the main thing.

The secular lion and millionaire Epstein managed the assets of world famous brands and personified ostentatious wealth – the largest residence in Manhattan, private jet flights, regular parties on remote islands, friendship with the “cream of society”. He was one of the prominent sponsors of the Democratic Party, for which its top officials showered him with gratitude, as if not noticing one strange feature of the financier – he preferred to communicate with very young girls.

In 2005, part of the truth was revealed: Epstein was accused of having ties with minors and of persuading them to have sex. However, the millionaire got out – he made a deal with the investigation and served a little more than a year in exchange for forgiveness for all possible episodes and compensation for three dozen victims in civil suits.

The prosecutor who agreed to the deal was named Alexander Acosta. In 2019, when he was the Minister of Labor in the Trump administration, this deal “caught up” with him – against the background of a new scandal related to Epstein, he was forced to resign, and the agreement with the pedophile was deemed illegal since the victims knew nothing about him.

By this time, the Epstein case was not at all what it initially appeared to be. The lover of sex with minors “has grown” to a seasoned pimp who supplied “live goods” as part of lobbying activities. Parties, suites, islands, teenage prostitutes – all of this turned out to be not only the nouveau riche’s vacation, but also his business. Bribes for lucrative contracts and specific services.

How many businessmen and high-ranking politicians were involved in these orgies, only Epstein himself knew, but he had no shortage of rich and powerful friends. Among them, for example, former US President Bill Clinton, who regularly used Epstein’s plane and was once spotted on one of his two islands used for meetings with teenagers.

Two victims testified directly against Prince Andrew – the youngest son of Elizabeth II, who is now confused in his memories and refuses to cooperate with the investigation (but at the same time he is lying that he is meeting the American prosecutors).

A well-founded accusation of these two is enough to shake the political foundations of the Anglo-Saxon world.

But the list of Epstein’s close friends is not limited to them – it includes ex-Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak, and ex-Prime Minister of Great Britain Tony Blair, and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed (the most influential Saudi in the world after his 84-year-old father, the king), and even Donald Trump.

True, the friendship with the latter fell on a period when the influence of the developer Trump was not as powerful (and suitable) as Clinton’s. After the very first case against Epstein, the current president stopped all communication with him, but even before that he was among those who publicly drew attention to the financier’s love for young people. The media that hate Trump do not care about this, so the documentary series “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich” is sometimes edited in the spirit of a propaganda video – the revelations of the victims are given against the background of Epstein’s photographs with Trump, not Clinton or Andrew.

Be that as it may, Epstein is dead, and that he passed away of his own free will, there are reasonable doubts. And everyone in the United States (even if he himself never admits it) understands that the Democratic Party, opposition to Trump, and, especially, the Clintons, around which a full-fledged necropolis of people who died under suspicious circumstances, has already formed, is more interested in the silence of a pedophile.

Now the case of a super-influential pedophile has been closed, but cases of fraud remain – underage girls, as mentioned above, were part of dirty deals. One of them concerns the largest financial conglomerate in Germany – Deutsche Bank, which Epstein used to launder money thanks to connections in his leadership.

It is not known whether he thanked these “connections” of his the way he used to – orgies with minors on remote islands. But it is known that federal judge Esther Salas, who miraculously escaped death, was engaged in exactly this case.

At the same time, right now the scandal around Epstein and his influential friends has received a second wind. In early July, Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of a media mogul, a close friend and, allegedly, Epstein’s accomplice, was arrested. She does not believe that the scandalous financier himself took his own life. And he is the only person who is able to shed light on the participants in pedophile orgies.

If, of course, she lives to see the trial, and is not found dead, after which the world will hear the official version of “suicide” for the umpteenth time.

Chinese diplomats in the US are urgently burning all documents

According to Houston city portals, on July 21, 2020, at approximately 8:00 pm local time, people living in the Montrose Boulevard area smelled a strong smell of burning paper – as if an entire paper mill was on fire. 

The firefighters and police who went to the scene quickly found the fire, located at Montrose 3417 – that is, a fire was burning in the building where the Chinese embassy is located:

However, the Chinese who met the firefighters reassured the outfit, saying that everything was under control and the trash can simply caught fire. However, from the surrounding balconies, the burning urn looked like this:

Thus, throughout the night from 21st to 22nd of July, employees of the Chinese embassy urgently destroyed documents. 

Since the embassy is Chinese and the documents there are Chinese, the employees of the diplomatic mission have every right to destroy their documents – which is done in all the embassies of the world from time to time. But in this case, the documents were burned in bundles, in huge quantities. 

There is nothing new in such destruction of documents. In particular, on the eve of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the Japanese ambassadors also burned documents in centners. 

This is also not surprising, since the burning of documents by embassies is a worldwide practice in the event of a war between states. Naturally, no one kills or arrests the ambassadors, but already in the first hours of hostilities they are offered to leave. Therefore, one half of the ambassadors after that packs their clothes, and the other half urgently burns secret documents – so as not to leave it to the enemy. 

Sometimes, of course, there are overlays – as is the case, for example, with the Japanese who ran ahead of the locomotive. And this is a historical fact. They say that a similar story happened during the German attack on the USSR on June 22, 1941.

So, the Germans began to burn the documents on the 20th, and in the evening of June 21st, the German ambassador informed Joseph Stalin of their plan to bomb the next day.

And now, it seems, history is repeating itself, only this time the Chinese and, possibly, diplomats from the Russian Federation played the role of the Japanese, who, it seems, also have something burning somewhere:

We do not vouch for the accuracy of the information from Miami, since there is only one text tweet. However, the information from Houston is reliable and the actual DEFCON is now at level 2-3.

EAM will be decisive in the near future, that is, messages about actions in an emergency situation – if now telegrams longer than 100 characters are sent to the American Air Force and the nuclear submarine, then DEFCON will already be somewhere 1-2 – that is, time to crawl under the table and monitor the situation from there.
