Electronic tagging

Electronic tagging is a form of surveillance which uses an electronic device, fitted to the person. In some jurisdictions, an electronic tag fitted above the ankle is used for people as part of their bail or probation conditions, it is used in healthcare settings and in immigration contexts in some jurisdictions. Electronic tagging can be used in combination with the global positioning system. For short-range monitoring of a person that wears an electronic tag, radio frequency technology is used; the electronic monitoring of humans found its first commercial applications in the 1980s. Portable transceivers that could record the location of volunteers, were first developed by a group of researchers at Harvard University in the early 1960s; the researchers cited the psychological perspective of B. F. Skinner as underpinning for their academic project; the portable electronic tag was called behavior transmitter-reinforcer and could transmit data two-ways between a base station and a volunteer who simulated a young adult offender.

Messages were supposed to be sent to the tag, so as to provide positive reinforcement to the young offender and thus assist in rehabilitation. The head of this research project was Ralph Kirkland Schwitzgebel and his twin brother collaborator, Robert Schwitzgebel; the main base-station antenna was mounted on the roof of the Old Cambridge Baptist Church. Reviews of the prototype electronic tagging strategy were critical. In 1966, the Harvard Law Review ridiculed the electronic tags as Schwitzgebel Machine and a myth emerged, according to which the prototype electronic tagging project used brain implants and transmitted verbal instructions to volunteers; the editor of a well-known U. S. government publication, Federal Probation, rejected a manuscript submitted by Ralph Kirkland Schwitzgebel, included a letter which read in part: "I get the impression from your article that we are going to make automatons out of our parolees and that the parole officer of the future will be an expert in telemetry, sitting at his large computer, receiving calls day and night, telling his parolees what to do in all situations and circumstances Perhaps we should be thinking about using electronic devices to rear our children.

Since they do not have built-in consciences to tell them right from wrong, all they would have to do is to push the'mother' button, she would take over the responsibility for decision-making." Laurence Tribe in 1973 published information on the failed attempts by those involved in the project to find a commercial application for electronic tagging. In the U. S. the 1970s saw an end of rehabilitative sentencing, including for example discretionary parole release. Those found guilty of a criminal offense were sent to prison, leading to sudden increase in the prison population. Probation became more common, as judges saw the potential of electronic tagging, leading to an increasing emphasis on surveillance. Advances in computer-aided technology made offender monitoring affordable. After all, the Schwitzgebel prototype had been built out of surplus missile tracking equipment. A collection of early electronic monitoring equipment is housed at the National Museum of Psychology in Akron, Ohio.. The attempt to monitor offenders became moribund until, in 1982, Arizona state district judge, Jack Love, convinced a former sales representative of Honeywell Information Systems, Michael T. Goss, to start a monitoring company, National Incarceration Monitor and Control Services.

The NIMCOS company built several credit card-sized transmitters that could be strapped onto an ankle. The electronic ankle tag transmitted a radio signal every 60 seconds, which could be picked up by a receiver, no more than 45 metres away from the electronic tag; the receiver could be connected to a telephone, so that the data from the electronic ankle tag could be send to a mainframe computer. The design aim of the electronic tag was the reporting of a potential home detention breach. In 1983, judge Jack Love in a state district court imposed home curfew on three offenders, sentenced to probation; the home detention was a probation condition and entailed 30 days of electronic monitoring at home. The NIMCOS electronic ankle tag was trialed on those three probationers, two of which re-offended, so the goal of home confinement was satisfied but the aim of reducing crime through probation was not; the use of electronic monitoring in medical practice as it relates to the tagging of the elderly and people with dementia, is capable of generating controversy, media attention.

Elderly people in care homes can be tagged with the same electronic monitors used to keep track of young offenders. For persons suffering from dementia, electronic monitoring might be beneficially used to prevent them from wandering away; the controversy in its medical use relates to two arguments, one as to the safety of the patients, the other, as to their privacy and human rights. At over 40%, there is a high prevalence of wandering among patients with dementia. Of the several methods deployed to keep them from wandering, it is reported that 44% of wanderers with dementia have been kept behind closed doors at some point. Other solutions have included constant surveillance, use of makeshift alarms and, the use of various drugs that carry the risk of adverse effects.

School children in distress would be able to hit a button summoning a security agent to their location.

You'll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties

"You'll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties" is a song by English singer-songwriter Jona Lewie. It was written by Keef Trouble, it was released in 1980 and entered the UK Singles Chart in May, reaching number 16 and staying for 11 weeks on the chart. The song experienced the greatest success in New Zealand, where it reached #3 in October for two weeks, remaining in the top 40 for 17 weeks. Lewie added a new storyline ending to Trouble's lyrics, he wrote the melody on a multi-timbre polyphonic Polymoog in his home eight-track studio, played on and recorded the backing track himself, apart from bass guitar from Norman Watt-Roy and additional hi-hat percussion from Bob Andrews. It has been claimed that the female backing vocal is by Kirsty MacColl, but Lewie has confirmed that during the recording of the song they were done by the wives of producer Andrews and Dave Robinson, the owner of Stiff Records. MacColl did however appear as a backing vocalist during live performances. In 2010, the track was used to advertise kitchens for IKEA.

The advert, the full version of which ran to three minutes, features the group Man Like Me walking around a party in a house comprising only kitchens while singing a new version of the song. Lewie himself appeared as the host of the party; the song returned to the UK singles charts in 2010 reaching number 71. Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics

Ducal palace, Mantua

The Palazzo Ducale di Mantova is a group of buildings in Mantua, northern Italy, built between the 14th and the 17th century by the noble family of Gonzaga as their royal residence in the capital of their Duchy. The buildings are connected by corridors and galleries and are enriched by inner courts and wide gardens; the complex includes some 500 rooms and occupies an area of c. 34,000 m². Although most famous for Mantegna's frescos in the Camera degli Sposi, they have many other significant architectural and painted elements; the Gonzaga family lived in the palace from 1328 to 1707. Subsequently, the buildings saw a sharp decline, halted in the 20th century with a continuing process of restoration and the designation of the area as museum. In 1998, a hidden room was discovered by Palace scholars, led by musicologist Paula Bezzutti; the room is thought to have been used for performances of Monteverdi's music in the late 16th century. The entrance of the palace is from Piazza Sordello, onto which the most ancient buildings, the Palazzo del Capitano and the Magna Domus, open.

They formed the original nucleus of the so-called Corte Vecchia. The Palazzo del Capitano was built in the late 13th century by the Captain of the People Guido Buonacolsi. Built on two floors and separated from the Magna Domus by an alley, in the early 14th century it received a further floor and was united to the Magna Domus by a large façade with a portico; the additional floor consists of a huge hall, known as "Hall of the Weapon Room" of "Hall of Diet", as it housed the Diet of Mantua in 1459. The monumental Scalone delle Duchesse, built in the 17th century and renovated in 1779 by Paolo Pozzo, leads to the Room of the Morone, named after the 1494 canvas of the Veronese painter Domenico Morone, portraying the Expulsion of the Bonacolsi in 1328. In the noble floor of the Captain's Palace is the First Room of Guastalla, with a fresco frieze with portraits of the Gonzaga family, which once extended to the successive room, the "Room of Pisanello", from the artist who, from 1433, painted a series of frescoes depicting a Tournament and other scenes, which were left unfinished.

His commissioner, Gianfrancesco Gonzaga, is portrayed in the paintings. The frescoes were restored in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1519 Isabella d'Este moved her residence from the Castle of St. George to this older sector of the Gonzaga palace, in the so-called "Widow Apartment". Isabella's apartment included two wings now divided by the entrance to the Cortile d'Onore; the "Grotto Wing" housed the wooden furnitures and the paintings from her famous studiolo, commissioned from 1496 to 1505 to Mantegna, Lorenzo Costa the Elder and Perugino, as well as new ones by Correggio. Another hall in the same wing is the Camera Granda or Scalcheria, frescoed in 1522 by the Mantuan artist Lorenzo Leonbruno; the apartment included further halls in the so-called "Wing of Santa Croce", from the name of a church of the time of Matilda of Canossa, over whose remains were built rooms such as the Sala delle Imprese Isabelliane, the Sala Imperiale, Sala delle Calendule, Sala delle Targhe and Sala delle Imprese. Guglielmo X Gonzaga, in the 16th century, transformed the rooms of the Corte Vecchia creating the Refectory, facing the Hanging Garden, the Sala dello Specchio, used for music.

During the Habsburg rule in Mantua, the Refectory was refurbished, with the creation of the Sala dei Fiumi with paintings on the walls on which the rivers in the Mantuan territory are portrayed as giants. At the same time was created the Appartamento degli Arazzi, comprising four halls. Three of the latter have tapestries, executed in the Flanders on cartoons by Raphael, the same used for those in the Raphael Rooms in the Vatican Palace, they were bought at Brussels by Cardinal Ercole Gonzaga in the early 16th century to decorate what at the time was called the Green Apartment. After decorating the Palatine church of St. Barbara and a period in the Ducal Palace's stores, the Flemish tapestries were restored in 1799 and placed in the current location. A further restoration was carried on during the Napoleonic Wars in the Sala dello Zodiaco known as "Napoleon I's Hall", after the French emperor slept there. Main article: Castello di San Giorgio, Mantua The Castle of St. George was built from 1395 and finished in 1406 under commission by Francesco I Gonzaga, designed by Bartolino da Novara, one of the most renowned military architects of the time.

It has a square plan with four corner towers, surrounded by a ditch with three entrances, each one with a drawbridge. In 1459 architect Luca Fancelli, commissioned by marquis Ludovico III Gonzaga, who assigned several rooms of the Corte Vecchia for the Council of Mantua called by Pope Pius II, restored the castle, which lost its military and defensive function; the Camera Picta or Camera degli Sposi is the most famous room of the palace, known for its frescoes executed by Andrea Mantegna, from 1465 to 1475, as attested by slab celebrating the end of the works. The painter's decoration creates an illusionistic space, as if the chamber was a loggia with three openings facing country landscapes among arcades and curtains; the painted scenes portrays me
