SHORT SUMMARY: DNA being correlated with social media and dissident or “potential domestic terrorist” personalities and behaviors on the one hand, and to plan for culling the herd on the other. Combine precision DNA with 5G and you can suicide “by name” from a remote computer. What fun.
The world’s largest maker of quantum computers, Canada’s D-Wave Systems Inc., recently announced the Pegasus generation of its quantum computers, featuring 2.5 times the qubits (more than 5,000) than its predecessor, as well as the elimination of a major stumbling block to commercialization by directly connecting each of those qubits to three times as many nearby qubits as its previous generation, the Chimera.
Digital identity is an infrastructure necessary to do most everything on the Internet. And while there have been many solutions through the years, it remains a problem.

There’s the e-commerce conglomerate Alibaba, and Tencent, which owns WeChat, the platform used by more than 1 billion people every day. It does so many things – payments, social networking, messaging, travel booking, gaming – that participating in society without it seems all but impossible.
