Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin Invites Governor Sarah Palin to Russia

She said she visited Ireland, Afghanistan, Iraq and Russia, because Governor Palin is not familiar with world geography

(Tuesday, September 16, 2008 - 08:50 ) - Alaska's witch hunting two-year Governor Sarah Palin, who makes all her governmental decisions based on her Pentecostal faith and the direction given to her by her village church pastor, traveled overseas for the first time in her life earlier this summer to visit the increasingly popular Arab tourist destination Dubai for shopping and wind surfing.

Her Dubai vacation was fully paid for by Dick Cheney's Dubai-based oil company Halliburton, which also sells $1,000 dollar-a-piece lobsters and Haagen Dazs ice cream to 250,000 troops in Iraq.

The Iraq bill for taxpayers is currently running at $5 billion per month. If Sarah Palin is elected, she needs to meet with Halliburton executives in Dubai more often as she will be taking over this defense duty from Dick Cheney.

Palin, during her 12-day vacation in Dubai, also visited Kuwait for two hours.

The McCain/Palin team told Americans that Sarah Palin visited the troops in Iraq, but the military immediately issued a statement that said, "Governor Palin never set foot in Iraq."

The McCain/Palin team also said Palin visited Ireland, which in fact was a refueling stop for her plane, and Sarah Palin never even left the plane for a bathroom break during the 94-minute stop.

Palin's attorney claimed she never lied when she said she visited Ireland, Afghanistan, Iraq and Russia, because Governor Palin is not familiar with world geography.

Palin's attorney said "she was told she visited these countries and she believed her staff."

Last night Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin invited Sarah Palin for an official visit to Russia, but she declined Putin's invitation as she says she will help NATO and declare war against Putin when she is elected vice president.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
