Gizmodo: EarthNow is a new company looking to provide satellite imagery and live video in virtually real-time. Its unsettling pitch describes a network of satellites that can see any corner of the globe and provide live video with a latency of about a second. And a look at the startup’s top investors gives a lot of confidence that this thing is happening.
On Wednesday, EarthNow announced that it will emerge from the Intellectual Ventures ISF Incubator to become a full-scale commercial business. Its first round of investors is comprised of a small group of complimentary powerhouses: AirBus, the SoftBank Group, Bill Gates, and satellite-industry vet Greg Wyler.
The amount of the initial investment hasn’t been disclosed, but the announcement says the funding “focuses primarily on maturing the overall system design to deliver innovative and unique real-time Earth observation services.” That makes it sound like the company is in its very early stages, but don’t be so sure. Wyler’s OneWeb has already deployed highly advanced satellites with a blazing fast 130ms latency and its goal is to have a constellation of hundreds of satellites beaming broadband around the globe by 2020. constellation of hundreds of satellites beaming broadband around the globe by 2020. more …
Opinion: A song for post millennial ‘preppers‘ who believe that they will protected during the tribulation:
“Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide

In the fiction novel series ‘Left Behind’, Antichrist Nicolai Carpathia had a big money man financier named Jonathan Stonagal who controlled most of the world’s largest financial institutions and was the richest man in history.
Today, there are a handful of secular globalist billionaires with more than enough money to finance the revival of Rome.
Daniel 7:19 “Then I wished to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, broke in pieces, and trampled the residue with its feet”.
With Bill Gates’ new technology company, the final dictator will have the ability to locate and identify the enemies of his regime:
Revelation 13:16-17 “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
Interesting how everything is falling into place.
