How can you tell if your car is bugged or tracked with a GPS? Would a tracking device on your car cause your turn signals to work then stop working all of a sudden?
The term for your search is called TSCM or Technical Surveillance Counter Measures. Although there are tools that cost tens of thousands of dollars at companies like REI (http://www.research-electronics.com) or consultants that can do the sweep for you for hundreds of dollars, doing your own sweep is rather easy and free. Depending on the jurisdiction, Law Enforcement may or may not need to get a search warrant to place a tracking device on your vehicle. Knowing this information about your state may help figure out where to start looking for a hidden device. If search warrant laws are lax, then a good visual sweep of the underside of the vehicle and trunk can usually find a GPS device for the following reasons:Law Enforcement may have limited access to your car in the parking lot or while you are shopping, so placement is quick and sloppy and removal needs to be easy. How long the device runs (Does it need batteries which last a few days in real time monitoring mode or wired directly to the car battery). See above. Metal needed for most devices to stick to magnetically. (Although I have used duck tape and zip ties). Bumpers, car frames are great. Near the road surface or direct sky for the GPS radio singles to receive well. (Although cell and wifi gps systems are becoming popular). Edges of the vehicle, bumpers, hoods, truck lids. Vehicle Space. As shown in the recent finding of a FBI GPS on a Santa Clara students vehicle, the devices the SJ or SF FBI field office are using are OLD and BIG. Pic: When you do your search look for anything that might be the size of a pager or . above, often times attached to a brick or tube of batteries. In the maze of moving parts under a car may sound like a needle in a haystack, but trust me, the devices stand out like sore thumbs. LE just assumes no one looks under their car and the device is only used for a few days. If your car was stolen, impounded or there are strict GPS laws for law enforcement in your state a more details search is needed. In those cases GPSs can be hard wired into the car battery and hidden in a million different places that only TSCM tools might find quickly. Remember GPS units can be small (and useful tools) but they cost money that local PD (and SJ or SF FBI) don't have for low priority cases. So your best beat is to just look under the car for that 1995 brick device and get a lawyer.If you are talking about a listening bug, its not there. See the above reasons and then multiple it on complexity of installing it and transmitting the recordings from a moving vehicle. Even with sim card bugs on the market they aren't putting that in your dash to listen to your phone calls they can already monitor.
If you left a survey for burglars to fill out the next time they ransacked your home, how would they rate the experience?
How did you learn about us?Rumors about rural houses having little Security.Location: 5/10Location was alright. Around 500 meters to the nearest neighbor. But unfortunately an hour away from any sizable population (20,000 plus being a sizable population.)Transportation: 10/10Transportation was top notch. The owners of the property never lock their Minivan or Pick-up truck. The keys are always left in the vehicles. Both are moderately new and somewhat non-descriptive so a perfect getaway vehicle. Not only did they provide vehicles they also kept trailers in a easily accessible unlocked shed.Security: 9/10Security was lax. There is a gate but it isn’t locked. Doors aren’t locked unless the house is left unoccupied for more than 2 weeks. No cameras made it really easy. They did have a dog which made it a bit of a pain. He was easily disposed of as he was just a Labrador Retriever puppy. Owners are very light sleepers don’t rob if they’re around.Products: 10/10No place has better selection. The place had 3 DSLR cameras, 3 Workstation class desktops, 3 tablets, 4 drones, 6 Smartphones, 9 external monitors and 11 laptops. All of the items were of premium design and value (aka Apples or equivalent). The freezers and shelves were well stocked the rest of the property was much more appealing though.They also had a shop on the property with many tools ranging from mechanics to carpentry to fabrication. The tools were of medium quality. The shop also stored 2 ATV for added convenience. The shop wasn’t the jackpot though.The shed was the real treasure trove. This drive in shed held heavy equipment all with the keys in the ignition for easy accessibility. The average equipment’s value was around $100,000, with a combined value of around $1.5 Million. Unfortunately the heavy equipment is hard to transport and the market is too small to get away with it.The products all seemed gift wrapped for the taking. Everything was easy to find as it looked organized.Laws in the area: 10/10Owners aren’t allowed to use lethal force or even have a premeditated weapon for self defense. A robber in the area once accidentally locked himself into the garage place he was robbing. As the owners did not come home for a couple days he resorted to eating dog food. The end result was the owners were charged for negligence of the robber. Laws almost protect us. Owners are not supposed to attack us in any way or they may be charged.Would you recommend to your friends?If everybody is gone a resounding yes. Unfortunately that’s not very often as the house is occupied by Home-schooling kids, a Writer and the owner is a farmer who mostly works on property. Also if you intend to use brute force, bring a weapon. All the occupants are big. The average height is around 6 feet.BTW bring friends to help loot. It really requires a team of people to loot the place.
How often do you take the time to fill out surveys?
Very often and I do it almost everyday for many times as well. For if you really want to make some money online with surveys, you need to really work hard for that. You need to sign up with a few websites and start to always do the surveys in a regular basis during th days and you ha d to do it fast as well. The reason being that some surveys will need certain amount of people to do the surveys within an hour or two. Once they meet the quota, the survey will be closed . There are actually some strategy that you can follow and don’t forget to sign up and start to do your work as well.Footnotes Christian Money Tips
Why does it take so long to get a prescription at the pharmacy?
The wait time given is not always the time it takes to fill YOUR prescription. It's usually the time it'll take to finish everyone else's prescription that came before yours.Your prescription has to be entered EXACTLY the way the doctor wrote it. If someone, such as an assistant, enters the prescription incorrectly but doesn't notice until the pharmacist checks it for accuracy and appropriatenes, the process gets restarted. The prescription gets sent back for someone to cancel it in the computer and re-enter everything once again. If you go to a pharmacy with inexperienced staff, lots of mistakes are made behind the counter, but the pharmacist has the final check. Trust me, there's a lot that can go wrong and can be missed if the pharmacist is rushed and stressed out.For instance, I used to work at a VERY busy pharmacy. We even had a huge room sized robot that counted and labeled the majority of our prescriptions. This would seem like it would make it super easy to work there. But, in fact, sometimes it made it even more dangerous for patients. Anyway, on a very busy day, the pharmacist made an error and didn't open up the box of fentanyl they were checking. Just so happens that 100microgram patches were put in a 25 microgram box. That's 4 times the dose that the patient used to receive. The patches look all the same except for the box and the size of the patch and maybe some writing but when you've been on these meds for a long time most people won't even think to read the package each time they apply the patch to their skin.We got a frantic call from the patients wife who, upon trying to wake him, she was unsuccessful. She called to inquire if the doctor changed his dose… That's when the pharmacist asked her to read the patch off his arm. This pharmacist was mortified that they had made such a huge error. It ruined them for a long while. Luckily, the patient survived. But, those mistakes stick with you forever. They're always on their minds when they are working and sadly even when they aren't.So when you wonder what takes so long to prepare a prescription, please be nice about wait times, you really don't know what the pharmacist has just gone through and they may just want to take their time so nobody gets hurt.
