… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Dutch smartphone apps digitize wanted posters

Deutsche Welle, 12 March 2012

Cops in the Netherlands are hoping that their citizens will check their phones for suspects. One was created by a Dutch startup that outsources to Kosovo.

In the Netherlands, wanted posters are now going digital, giving the Dutch police a way to boost their crimefighting capabilities via smartphones. Two new applications are empowering ordinary people to assist authorities in capturing suspects - and they're starting to have modest, but tangible results.

A couple weeks ago, the Amsterdam police were looking for two suspects accused of pilfering a senior's bank account. The cops had pictures of them. So, Commissioner Bart Driessen alerted the public.

"On a Friday afternoon we put two girls, women the age of 20 and 23 - we put them on the Internet," he told DW. "Saturday morning, they both were on the police station, and [they said] ‘Hey [we're on] that app, you are looking for [us]?,' ‘Yeah, we are looking for you - you're under arrest,' and they're now in prison.”

The suspects saw their mug shots on the Amsterdam police's smart phone app, DePolitieZoekt - In Dutch, that means: “The police are looking”

"They were recognized not only by themselves, but also their friends and surroundings, they saw, ‘Hey you're on the Internet,' he added. "It's, yeah, shaming. That's a good word. Shaming of them."

Dutch law enforcement says they
have made a few new arrests thanks
to the software
Thousands of downloads so far

DePolitieZoekt was released in November for the iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile platforms. The app has more than 115,000 downloads so far. It features a gallery of essential digital wanted posters.

They include photos and in some cases embedded videos of the wanted suspects, such as a recent one of a suspect who is believed to have stolen 144 liters of gasoline instead of the 35 liters that he'd paid for. Anyone who recognizes the suspected gas thief can tip off police directly from the app. Fill out a form and hit send. It goes directly to the investigators on the case.

Driessen, who oversees DePolitieZoekt, says response to the app has been staggering.

“We can reach thousands of numbers of citizens in the city to warn them or to get their assistance in making it safer in the city," he said. "What we do see is that those smart phone users are very interested in the messages from the police force.”

Bart Driessen, the Amsterdam
 police commissioner, has praised the
new app
Another addition, Anoniem

While DePolitieZoekt is only being used in Amsterdam, a national anti-crime organization, known as the M. Foundation, launched its smartphone app, Anoniem, just last month. It's sort of like DePolizieZoekt, but this one has no direct links to police.

Each day at its headquarters in a small town in central Holland, the M. Foundation takes about 300 anonymous crime tips via phone calls from across the Netherlands. M. evaluates the tips and sends them to law enforcement if appropriate. The tips have led to thousands of arrests. But one recent call marked the first of its kind.

“There was a street robber wanted by the police, and it was on our app," said, Ruud Smulders, the manager of the M. Foundation, in a DW interview. "And he was arrested a few days after he was published on our app. So there's one success I can say now.”

As Smulders pulls up the app on his iPhone 4, the app shows and animated pistol, followed by a menu, and after a brief moment, he taps it open and starts browsing gallery of the Netherlands' most wanted.

“This one is a robber, and this is a thief, a known thief, and this guy, well, he looks bad," he said with a grin.

While there's certainly a bit of fun to be had in perusing Anoniem's gallery of rogues, Smulders says he hopes more users will put those images into action.

"When you see their photo, when you're sitting on a terrace and drinking your coffee and you can recognize someone, you say, ‘Hey, this is this criminal wanted by the police, and you can swipe on the app, and see all the information, and you can push one button, and you can call us.” 

Timbur Xhabiri was one of the
 Kosovo-based developers for Anoniem
Outsourcing to Kosovo

But what's even more interesting than these Dutch digital wanted posters, is that they were created by programmers in Kosovo, via SPRIGS, a Dutch company that outsources its programming operations to Prishtina. 

Kosovo's capital boasts a large community of tech-savvy young people and late last year had its first startup weekend.

A half-dozen young Kosovar Albanian programmers work at computers at a repurposed apartment that now houses the technical brain trust of this IT outsourcing company. 

Anoniem is the highest-profile job to date for SPRIGS, which was founded in late 2010, by a Dutch entrepreneur. IT outsourcing is one of the economic bright spots in Europe's second-poorest country.

“Most people here don't know the difference between Poland and Kosovo," explained Thom van der Veen, who works in SPRIGS's front office in Amsterdam.

"But I think it's good for them to see that what we deliver is actually good, and mostly we're quite on time with things. And they're quite impressed with that.”
