Huawei Bosses Declared that the US Government is Ignorant about Technology
Huawei bosses accused the US government of being ignorant regarding technology over belittling national security concerns with claims that their company is an arm of China and that their network can be used as a weapon to spy on western governments.
John Suffolk, the former chief IT adviser for the UK government and current chief security officer for Huawei, claims that US politicians have no evidence to back up their statements that Huawei 5G mobile technology could be hacked by Chinese spies and used for eavesdrops of any sensitive phone calls or even to be used to kill targets by crashing driverless cars.
John who was previously the highest-paid British civil servant said that America’s allegations are strictly political and not security concerns. He said:
“(America) can’t keep saying (Huawei) has got some dodgy technology. (Edward) Snowden revealed all kind of things going on with American technology. No one has revealed anything that we do (is bad).”
“They are belittling national security – national security is important and they shouldn’t belittle it. They should face up to the reality that technology is complicated and should work together to solve the problems that we can.”
Also, the Huawei executive who is in charge of rolling out 5G said that American politicians are ignorant about technology and added he often had to “explain it (technology) to them like I do to my kids”.
Suffolk believes that he is never going to convince politicians from the US that Huawei technology is not accessible to the Chinese state.
The shots were fired when the US government expressed some concerns that Huawei technology can be used by Chinese spies in a digital war against the US.
Plastic Technology for Natural Recycling
About 335 million tons of plastic are produced each year and while it degrades extremely slowly compared to other materials, it can be broken into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are being blown around the world by the wind.
Maybe one day we will live in a world without plastic, but until that day comes we must find a way to make plastic more biodegradable more quickly so that it can be recycled back into nature. Plastic is often found in whales, fishes and other sea creatures and often we are not sure how so much plastic could be found in one whale. But the answer is simple. The main culprit is human activity.
Technology for the process of recycling plastic is already available. The technology called oxo-biodegradation is required by law in some countries such as UAE, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and seven other countries whose governments decided to make an expert study and find what works and what creates no toxicity in our environment.
Now it’s time for the US and Europe to follow their example. It’s crucial to our environment for us to use less plastic, to recycle and to find the best solution for the planet that we call home.
Technology as a Crime Scene
A British journalist recently labeled technology as a “crime scene,” blaming technology platforms for participating in a crisis in Western democracy. During his TED talk, Carole Cadwallader who exposed the Cambridge Analytica involvement in data scandal and how they used information from 87 million Facebook users to impact the Brexit vote and the election in the US, addressed executives of big tech companies such as Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, Alphabet founder Sergey Brin and Larry Page, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey whose creations weakened democracy and created chaos. He called them “gods of Silicon Valley,” says
“Facebook: you were on the wrong side of history in that. And you are on the wrong side of history in this. In refusing to give us the answers that we need. And that is why I am here. To address you directly. … We are what happens to a western democracy when a hundred years of electoral laws are disrupted by technology.”
We live in a world where big tech companies are under no regulations and almost do not report to anyone. The laws and regulations are slim and easily broken. Often times we figure it out when everything is done and nothing can be changed. Too often, it’s their goodwill for many social media platforms on how they are going to regulate their platform and consequences are almost equal to none. For some, social media is a crime scene.
