Facial recognition technology has become one of the most utilized tools in airports and other entities. It is a great tool for risk assessment and controlling ational security around the globe. Facial recognition projects have been around since last century. There were many primitive attempts that took place in the 1980s.
The most notable project, and a predecessor of the currently evolved facial recognition technology, was development by Paul Viola and Michael Jones in 2001. The Viola–Jones object detectionframework is the first framework to provide competitive object detection rates in real-time. At the time a standard available computer could produce 15 images per second using this method.

The situation around the globe pertaining to coronavirus continues to escalate. The number of infected continues to rise, including the death toll. At this time, even high ranking politicians are testing positive for COVID-19, the latest being Senator Rand Paul in the US, who tested positive on March 22. As everyone is aware by now, the coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China. Due to the Chinese regime’s failure to identify and contain the virus immediately, the virus spread around the world. Additionally, nations around the globe did not suspend travel in time and it became a full blown pandemic.
Coronavirus has forced a majority of nations around the globe to implement drastic measures. These include the support of businesses and private citizens to alleviate losses and financial strains. In the US and Canada unemployment applications are reaching all time highs. A majority of nations in the West embraced an approach adverse to globalism.
The virus originated in China and they didn’t take initial reports seriously, instead they threatened doctors and closed a laboratory that published an open source genome sequence of the virus. If it wasn’t for conglomerates craving marginal profits and moving a majority of manufacturing from the West to China, it wouldn’t have such catastrophic effects on the global population.
Currently, a majority of nations around the globe are battling the coronavirus pandemic. However, there is another battle that needs rapid attention and response. It is the cyber battle around fake news and misinformation. Russia and China have been busy spreading misinformation such as the false statements from Chinese government representatives that the US brought coronavirus to Wuhan, China.
Russia has amplified its own misinformation attacks against the US. Meanwhile, China continues its defamation narrative (with Russia’s aid), issuing false statements about the US bringing coronavirus to Wuhan, China. A majority of Russian news outlets picked up an article from CNBC titled “Bank of America says the recession is already here: ‘Jobs will be lost, wealth will be destroyed.’” The article published on March 19th by Michelle Meyer discussed a full-scale financial crisis.

With the news of a shut down in California, the most highly populated state in America, there is no other way to receive this news in Israel but with shock. Israel and America are partners in the work of building this world to last for another thousand years with peace and health. President Trump began his administration with the goal of reaching global peace but received opposition from the liberal Democrats.
Scientists believe that the coronavirus was produced through natural causes and not in a laboratory. About this there are still skeptics. In the near future the hidden secrets of coronavirus will be revealed. President Trump calls it the “China Virus” and Beijing claims it was caused by America military (there is zero evidence of this). No one knows the truth but there are differences of opinions and the major stress is placed on solving the problem.
An astonishing announcement was made on Russia Channel 1 on the evening of March 18 during a live show by the chief editor of Nazavisimaya Gazeta Konstantin Remchukov.

Chinese molecular biologists from the Air Force Military University and the Institute of Biotechnology in Beijing claim the COVID19 coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) can enter human cells not only through the ACE2 receptor, like a number of other viruses, but also through another protein.
The scientists state:
“We are well aware that the virus uses the ACE2 receptor to enter the body. However, since it is often found in the cells of the heart, kidneys, and genitals, fighting the virus through this protein can negatively affect these organs. We have isolated another receptor whose molecules are attacked by the virus. This expands the possible Arsenal of tools for suppressing infection.“
Information has been released about suspicious activity by RT, Viber and Tik Tok. These applications were tracked by researchers Talal Haj Bakry and Tommy Musk.

The World Health Organization on Coronaviruses:
“Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.”
