Commentary and Opinions

The cost of healthcare in the U.S. continues to soar year after year. The problem is not a result of idleness or the lack of technology, but of not addressing the core problem of patient identity.
Like every new technology marching its way through the hype cycle, cloud computing has fallen prey to unscrupulous marketers. Their basic crime is to borrow the language, but not the substance, of technological innovation, and mis-apply it to their own products in a cynical bid to fool the public.
During my entire 23-year career as a police officer, I never dealt specifically with an individual who admitted they were a victim of human trafficking.  That doesn’t mean that human trafficking isn’t a problem, or that it doesn’t happen in the United States every day. On the contrary, the 2011 U.S. Department of State Trafficking in Persons Report estimates that 17,500 individuals are trafficked into the U.S. each year. 
Many security equipment projects go out to bid in order to help ensure fair pricing for security equipment buyers. Sometimes an RFP/RFQ is generated to solicit bids or quotes on a project. These RFPs and RFQs may come from a professional security consulting engineer or simply from an end-user looking to get the best bang for his buck.
While travelling through TSA lines at an airport, I often wonder how to make the process more efficient. TSA obviously has thought about this, too. Online pre-screening for frequent travelers and advanced imaging technology have been added to their repertoire to ease the screening process. Both advances are technological and both aim to increase efficiency and decrease human contact. Technology and humans cannot be on divergent paths in the homeland security and law enforcement arenas. They must work together.
