#1781: Marine Links MI-3 Innholders Serco WiFi to Best Western Pig Farm, Marriott Navy Yard

Plum City – (AbelDanger.net). United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco’s operation of SATCOM and Wi-Fi patent pools for the MI-3 Innholders Livery Company to Best Western war rooms (?) allegedly used in the B.C. Pickton pig farm murders (1996-2001) and Marriott rooms used for the Navy Yard murders of September 16, 2013.

McConnell claims that Serco began developing wireless war-room patent pools for the MI-3 Innholders Livery Company in 1992 and he alleges that Serco equipped Innholders’ guards and guests with early Wi-Fi devices in 1993 to coordinate the attempted demolition of the World Trade Center buildings in New York, the incineration of members of the Branch Davidian sect in Wacco, Texas, and the attempted suitcase bomb attack on George Bush Senior in Kuwait.

McConnell also claims that his MI-3 Innholders founder sister Kristine Marcy has conspired with Serco director Maureen Baginski to refine the Serco war-room patent pool to the point where patsies such as Willie Pickton and Aaron Alexis serve as limited hangouts or decoys to divert public attention from what are MI-3-sponsored paramilitary attacks on the sovereign state.

Telecommunications Serco has supported various elements of the SKYNET programme since the 1980s, and are today a major part of the consortium delivering a secure global military satellite communications (SATCOM) [and WiFi onion router] infrastructure under a PFI framework till 2020.”

Support Services for Starwood Hotels Group Starwood Hotels Group, owner of some of the [Innholders] world's most prestigious hotels, has appointed Serco as preferred bidder for a £7m contract to provide a range of support services to the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh, the Westin in Dublin and the 5 star Turnberry resort on Scotland's west coast. The contract, which has a 5 year term, is an extension to services already provided to other [Innholders] hotels in the Starwood Group and includes buildings maintenance and security, engineering support and [WiFi] help desk services”

Wi-Fi, also spelled Wifi or WiFi, is a popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio wavesThe name is a trademark name, and was stated to be a play on the audiophile term Hi-Fi. The Wi-Fi Alliance defines Wi-Fi as any "wireless local area network (WLAN) products that are based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' (IEEE) 802.11 standards".[1] However, since most modern WLANs are based on these standards, the term "Wi-Fi" is used in general English as a synonym for "WLAN". Only Wi-Fi products that complete Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability certification testing successfully may use the "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED" trademark.

Many devices can use Wi-Fi, e.g. personal computers, video-game consoles, smartphones, some digital cameras, tablet computers and digital audio players. These can connect to a network resource such as the Internet via a wireless network access point. Such an access point (or hotspot) has a range of about 20 meters (65 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors. Hotspot coverage can comprise an area as small as a single room with walls that block radio waves, or as large as many square miles achieved by using multiple overlapping access points.

Wi-Fi can be less secure than wired connections (such as Ethernet) because an intruder does not need a physical connection. Web pages that use SSL are secure but unencrypted internet access can easily be detected by intruders. Because of this, Wi-Fi has adopted various encryption technologies. The early encryption WEP, proved easy to break. Higher quality protocols (WPA, WPA2) were added later. An optional feature added in 2007, called Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), had a serious flaw that allowed an attacker to recover the router's password.[2] The Wi-Fi Alliance has since updated its test plan and certification program to ensure all newly certified devices resist attacks.

Main article: History of IEEE 802.11

802.11 technology has its origins in a 1985 ruling by the US Federal Communications Commission that released the ISM band for unlicensed use.[3] In 1991, NCR Corporation with AT&T Corporation invented the precursor to 802.11 intended for use in cashier systems. The first wireless products were under the name WaveLAN.

The 802.11 standard uses a large number of patents held by many different organizations.[4]
Some have dubbed Dutch engineer Vic Hayes the "father of Wi-Fi" due to his involvement in negotiating the initial standards within the IEEE while chairing the workgroup.[5][6]

The Australian radio-astronomer John O'Sullivan developed a key patent used in Wi-Fi as a by-product in a CSIRO research project, "a failed experiment to detect exploding mini black holes the size of an atomic particle".[7] In 1992 and 1996, Australian organization CSIRO (the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) obtained patents[8] for a method later used in Wi-Fi to "unsmear" the signal.[9]

In 1999, the Wi-Fi Alliance formed as a trade association to hold the Wi-Fi trademark under which most products are sold.[10]

In April 2009, 14 technology companies agreed to pay CSIRO $250 million for infringements on CSIRO patents.[11] This led to Australians labelling Wi-Fi as an Australian invention,[12] though this has been the subject of some controversy.[13][14]CSIRO won a further $220 million settlement for Wi-Fi patent-infringements in 2012 with global firms in the United States required to pay the CSIRO licensing rights estimated to be worth an additional $1 billion in royalties.[11][15][16]

From 2003 to 2005, Ms. Baginski served as the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence where she was responsible for establishing and managing the FBI’s first-ever intelligence program. Her mission was to adapt FBI intelligence capabilities with information technologies to create an intelligence-sharing operation that could identify threats before they became attacks.

From 1979 to 2003, Ms. Baginski served at the National Security Agency (NSA), where she held a variety of positions, including Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Director, Senior Operations Officer in the National Security Operations Center; Executive Assistant to the Director of NSA/Central Security Service, Chief Officer of the Director; Assistant Deputy Director of Technology and Systems; and lead analyst for the Soviet Union. As SIGINT Director, Ms. Baginski successfully established and directed a unified program to exploit encrypted or denied information on global networks.

Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name "Mohammed Salem." This is the first I am hearing of this, and have seen no media mention of it (although the fact that he had been a Buddhist has been headlined and recounted numerous times, despite the fact is that there is no compulsion to violence, oppression and ethnic cleansing in the teachings of Buddhism).

It is striking that he would create a page "Mohammed Salem." Perhaps as he became more violent, he identified with the homicidal doctrine of jihad. I do not expect the jihad-aligned media to look into this aspect of the case.

Clearly, Muslim Brotherhood groups were concerned that it was jihad. Hamas-CAIR canceled a press conference on Tuesday that was going to expose the funding of the "islamophobia" industry. What funding? I mean, really. And devout Muslims cheered and suggested responsibility for the Navy Yard shooting that killed 13. And manyjihadists "expressed their joy" that the Nazy shooting was a response to Muslim leader Ayman al-Zawahiri 's strikes in America.

"Atlas Shrugs .. Pamela Gelller … Navy Yard gunman's mother says she is heartbroken and sorry for families," by Kyle Eppler, Pete Williams and Erin McClam for NBC NewsSeptember 18 (thanks to Robert Spencer):

The mother of Aaron Alexis, the Washington Navy Yard shooter, said Wednesday that she was heartbroken and sorry for the families of the victims and that she was glad he is "in a place where he can no longer do harm to anyone."

In a brief statement to a reporter in New York, the woman, Cathleen Alexis, said her son "has murdered 12 people and wounded several others."...

Authorities say they are still looking for a motive. Since Alexis carried out the attack Monday at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command, signs have emerged of a troubled history.

• Alexis, who served as a naval reservist from 2007 to 2011 and worked more recently as a civilian contractor, had a military disciplinary record that included disorderly conduct, insubordination and unexcused absences.

Newport, R.I., police said he called them Aug. 7 to say he had changed hotels twice because he believed people were chasing him and sending vibrations through the walls to keep him from sleeping.

Police said they had forwarded their report to police at the naval station in Newport. Military officials told NBC News on Wednesdaythat they had found no evidence that naval police 
forwarded the information to any higher command outside the base.

• The Department of Veterans Affairs said Wednesday that it saw Alexis twice. He went to a VA emergency room in Providence, R.I., on Aug. 23 complaining of insomnia and was given sleep medicine and told to follow up with a doctor, the agency said. Five days later, Alexis showed up at a VA emergency room in Washington to get a refill and was again encouraged to see a doctor, the VA said.

The VA said Alexis denied struggling with anxiety or depression or having thoughts about hurting himself or others. It also said he enrolled in VA health care in February 2011 and never sought an appointment for mental health.

• Alexis also had run-ins with the law over gun violence. He was accused in 2004 of having shot out the tires of a car in Seattle and in 2010 of having fired a gun into an upstairs apartment in Fort Worth, Texas.

• Friends and relatives have also said he had a preoccupation with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, felt slighted as a veteran, had money problems and was so unhappy with his life that he considered leaving the U.S.

Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name "Mohammed Salem," but they said he never did anything with it. They said they had found nothing else that might indicate any interest in violent jihad or even in Islam.

Best WiFi Hotels 2004

A HotelChatter exclusive.

We have cracked the hotel WiFi code and put together a list of the five must stays, if free wireless is a req for your hotel stay.  We checked out many of the online "Best Hotels For WiFi" lists, and you know what, many of them were just dead wrong.  The reason these lists missed is twofold.  First, many of these lists are fairly old, and base their findings on projections; we all know how that can go.  Second, wireless access is still new, and many hotels are tweaking their access situations.  Of course, wireless access varies from property to property, however, you can learn a lot about a hotels attitude from looking at how the hotel deals with WiFi access.  So how do we see the hotel WiFi landscape?   Free is good, fees are bad.  It is that simple.  Of course, one should approach free WiFi with cautious optimism; you may find some blockage on certain networks.  If so, alert us, as well as the hotels themselves, as we have found, many hotels are just unsure how to run their own wireless systems.  With that in mind, here is a list of the top five hotel brands that we find to be the best, when it comes to wireless access.

1. Kimpton
All 40 Kimpton properties nationwide offer free wireless in their lobbies.  At every Kimpton we have visited (ten or so) the lobby signal has been strong and fast.  Kimpton has partnered with Eleven Wireless and offers free and easy wireless access.  What is more, many Kimpton properties offer WiFi access in the guest rooms as well.  

What really impresses us about Kimpton's WiFi service is how one particular Kimpton hotel, 70 Park Ave, handled our in room wireless issues. We had a terrible in room WiFi signal and called down to the front desk ready to let them have it.  The front desk immediately sent up an engineer who came bearing gifts, in the form of a Linksys wireless bridge.  Our sketchy in room connection was now at full strength.  Now that is service.

So free wireless, coupled with outstanding service, earns Kimpton extremely high marks for WiFi connectivity.
(HotelChatter Best WiFi Hotels 2-5 below)

Omni is the Godfather of hotel wireless Internet access.  Omni is reportedly the first chain to offer free wireless access in both the lobby and the guest rooms (though not every guest room at every hotel), but somehow they get overlooked.  Well if free, working wireless access is near the top of your hotel checklist you need to take a close look at the Omni properties.  Furthermore, many Omni's have great lobbies for congregating, meeting, and checking email, and many of these lobbies have restaurants that are also hooked up with excellent wireless access.

If you are looking for reliable free wireless from a popular hotel brand, the Omni should make your short list.

Helpful staff, free WiFi in the lobby, and a great place to surf the `net, send off an email, or check your favorite sites.  Marriott Residence Inn does a great job of making folks feel comfortable in their lobby, which goes a long way when a guest wants to tap into the free wireless access.  The rooms, however, do not all have free wireless, though they are all equipped with high speed Internet.  If your room tethers you to an ethernet cable, the staff is usually good about getting you a cable, if you don't have one, oh yeah, and the wired access is free as well.

Best Western boasts free wireless in both the lobby and all of their guest rooms.  Back in January Tom Higgins, CEO of Phoenix based Best Western stated "High-speed Internet for free is going to be where it's at".  Right on, my man.  The best part is Higgins went ahead and wired all the Best Western hotels in US, Canada, and the Caribbean.

The service is reliable, of course, as is usually the case with "in room WiFi" Best Western is not promising a signal in every room, but they will guarantee you will have some sort of free Internet access in every room, whether through the WiFi router, or through a hardwired connection.  Oh, did we mention the Internet access is FREE.  Yah, that is what counts, so you might have to struggle a bit to get a signal, at least they are attempting to give you the service for free.

"Hidden Gem", isn't that what all those guidebooks like to say?  Well that is the case at most Holiday Inn's, if WiFi is a priority for you.  Sure you are going to get a basic room, but usually at a low price, and if you throw in free wireless then most people can be happy, at least for a night.  Most, not all (check before you go) Holiday Inn's have free wireless in the lobby and some sort of free broadband in the guest rooms.  Depending on the Holiday Inn you may run into port blocking, and in general, a good rule of thumb is expect most of these free Internet services to come with some sort of limitations.

Tomorrow, we will follow this story with a story on the worst hotels for WiFi access.”
Marriott hotels to drop pornographic videos
Font [+] [-]
By Elia Gourgouris For Mormon Times
Published: Tuesday, Feb. 1 2011 6:00 a.m. MST

The Marriott hotel chain, one of the nation's largest players in the hospitality business, has made the decision to eliminate offering adult movies in their rooms.

It is a decision praised by groups who view the pornography industry as a threat to families, individuals and children. It is also well known that the Marriott family is LDS, and their rooms frequently carry the Book of Mormon along with the Bible.

Although I applaud their decision, I am disappointed by the reason behind it. The hotel chain says the decision is strictly based on economics: In-room porn profits have steadily declined because the porn industry has moved online. Hotels in general have seen business travelers bring in their own electronic entertainment in the form of DVDs or movies they can watch on their laptops (like videos from Netflix). According to Colliers PKF Hospitality Research, hotels now collect about 39 percent less for in-room pay-per-view movie rentals than they did a decade ago.

It is also disappointing to hear that this will be a phasing out process. The removing of the in-room pay-per-view pornography will take place over the next five years.

Now, some people may say that I'm being naive about this whole thing: It has always been about the bottom line, meaning corporate profits, and it will always be that way.

I beg to disagree, and here's why. Omni, with more than 50 hotels, is the biggest chain that has refused to offer so-called "adult entertainment" for their guests. When did they make that decision to go porn free? How about 1999, when it was considerably more profitable for them. 

Omni spokeswoman Caryn Kboudi said, "The ownership decided that it was not a way they wanted to make money." There you go, pure and simple. I applaud their courageous stand, which was not dictated by economic factors but by plain decency. That's corporate leadership at its best!

I want you to know that personally and as a family we have stayed at numerous Marriott hotels over the years. Their level of customer service, friendliness, cleanliness and general accommodations has always been superb. I would encourage the Marriott Corporation, even at this late stage, to eliminate porn from their thousands of hotel rooms as soon as it's feasible. Five more years of porn is five years too many.

Sometimes our competitors, (Omni in this case), do get things right. Emulating them is not the end of the world. Life is not always about profits; it's about choices.

P.S. - I look forward to your thoughts.”

This is my second trip to Benghazi staying at then Tibesti since the Libyan revolution. My mobile phones, including mynLibyan one still don't connect but the hotel does have WiFi again in the lobby and the rooms on the 7th floor so Skype can be used. The connection is still vy weak but at least you don't feel entirely out of touch with the rest of the world.

The local Grand Dame where history is currently written
Reviewed 23 June 2011

In Libya's provisional new capital we stayed at the Tibesti Hotel which is the local Grande Dame and features the typical atmosphere of a conflict zone hotel: camouflaged security, UN people, local rebels turned politicians, businessmen, some shadier guys looking like mercenary brokers, the inevitable journalists - and the two of us. The 70s style interior asks for a renovation. The food buffett is good, if you haven't eaten properly the whole day. Staff is extremely friendly. Somehow I liked the Tibesti, even if in other countries it would be called 'a bit seedy and run down'.
