Long Island Town Installs Massive Surveillance Camera System

The Long Island town of Kings Point has decided everything within its limits will be recorded.

The 3.3-square mile North Shore community is home to 5,000 residents. The plan calls for 44 cameras to eventually be installed at the village’s 19 entrances. That’s about one camera for every 120 people.

Anyone who enters the town will have their license plate scanned and, if there is a match in a criminal database, the police will be notified. The mayor says it’s to protect residents because there are apparently many crimes in this upscale, exclusive community.

I’m all for catching criminals, but the invasion of privacy implications are just…whoa.

    And there is more! You can give your characters a family and even
    a home of their own. Join up with your friends in a
    guild – as a premium player you can even found one of your own.
    Also, if you have a premium account, you can rent one of the lovely
    houses that are available in the various cities on Tibia..
    The Maine Attorney General’s office reports nearly 23,000 state residents were affected
    by the hack and the California Attorney General’s website
    shows the incident was filed May 24. Try to make the best of your character.
    Keep in mind that every vocation has individual strengths and weaknesses.
    If you choose to be a sorcerer or a druid, your first step
    should be a visit to the local magic shop in your new home city.
    The Magic High Council has issued an order that every initiate should obtain
    a wand or a rod! So if you are a sorcerer or druid
    who has not obtained his first magical weapon
    on the Island of Destiny, you should find the right merchant and ask for a
    wand if you are a sorcerer or for a rod if you are druid.
    Also, all mages should start buying more spells as
    soon as possible. Keep in mind, however, that they are not always sold
    in magic shops. In some cities you will have to take a good look around to find your local spell dealer.
    Knights and paladins should also buy spells early on, for they
    can use some magic, too. However, adequate equipment and good skills are more important for these vocations, so perhaps it is a better idea to
    spend your money on arms and armour and look for some easy
    monsters on which you can improve your skills..
