This project is a system to reduce our power consumption, particularly when we’re not there.
When either of us comes into the room, all we have to do is tap our key fobs on a reader mounted by the door, and the room turns on or off what we normally use. The reader by the door reads the presence or absence of the tags.
NVDRS fills this surveillance gap by providing more detailed information.
Disclaimer: I received this book for free through the O’Reilly Blogger program. is a very short “book” on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), a way to tag and identify objects over varying ranges, and how to use Arduino to create a few interesting RFID projects.
The book assumes that you have some experience with Arduino and micro-controllers (i.e., do you know what a breadboard, jumper wires, and circuits are? We start with a very brief introduction to RFID, follow up with two introductory technical tutorials on Arduino, and end with a fairly simple home automation project: Between my officemate and me, we have dozens of devices drawing power in our office: two laptops, two monitors, four or five lamps, a few hard drives, a soldering iron, Ethernet hubs, speakers, and so forth.
In 2003, NVDRS began data collection with seven states (Alaska, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, South Carolina, and Virginia) participating; six states (Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin) joined in 2004, four (California, Kentucky, New Mexico, and Utah) in 2005, and two (Ohio and Michigan) in 2010 (Figure). This report summarizes data for 2013 for deaths meeting NVDRS inclusion criteria from the 17 states that collected statewide data in that year (Alaska, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin); these states account for approximately 30.1% of the U. NVDRS data are updated annually and are available through CDC’s Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System (WISQARS) NVDRS compiles information from multiple data sources.
CDC provides funding for state participation, and the ultimate goal is for NVDRS to expand to include all 50 states, U. The core required data sources are death certificates, coroner/medical examiner reports, and law enforcement reports.
NVDRS data are used to assist the development, implementation, and evaluation of programs and strategies designed to reduce and prevent these deaths at the national, state, and local levels.
Before implementation of NVDRS, single data sources (e.g., death certificates or law enforcement reports) provided only limited information and few circumstances from which to understand patterns of violent deaths.
If you never did malware analysis before, the material presented can be overwhelming.
It’s not easy to immediately put what you learned into action (you might understand a subject theoretically but might not be comfortable enough with the subject to put it into practice).
Homicide was the 16th leading cause of death overall in the United States but disproportionately affected young people (1).
It was the third leading cause of death for children aged 1–4 years and persons aged 15–34 years, the fourth leading cause for children aged 5–9 years, and the fifth leading cause for persons aged 10–14 years and 35–44 years.
Homicide disproportionately affected young African American males; it was the leading cause of death among those aged 15–34 years.
