Background thank you Dora, we appreciate, that this is a picture I took of ahlstrom, point I believe, probably about a year ago and I, thought it was absolutely, breathtaking so, we went ahead and put it out there for you guys to see. Alright, let's go ahead and move on here, in. The same vein as this a website. Glitch has revealed, where. You are this, is actually, an article that Theresa, aka, Lois put together for, you guys this, is also on Friday but we're going to share this with you now and you can read the entire thing at lake powell, news.com. Carnegie. Mellon university computer. Science. Student, and doctoral. Researcher. Robert, chow discovered. A website. Flaw, at carlsbad. And a carlsbad california company, that allowed anyone. To pinpoint the location of, nearly all cellphones. Within. The United States the. Company, locations. Smart gathers. Real-time. Data, on cellular. Wireless, devices, this. Is an area of business within the business sector that is mostly, unknown to, the general public, wherein companies, such as this provide real-time location. And other data to, companies, for multiple, uses such, as tracking employees. And messaging. Coupons, to customers, near, popular, stores, the. Flaw was first reported by independent, journalist Brian Krebs, this, is the latest release of information, regarding such, businesses, and business. Practices, that highlights. How easy it is for your, information, to be accessed it. Also. Spotlights. How companies, gain access to wireless consumers. Information without. Expressed. Consent, from the consumer, the. Information, obtained is known as geolocation. Data. As of, yesterday that would be Thursday, location. Smart took the webpage offering, this service offline. Only, after Shou discovered, the flaw and notified. The company, while. Seemingly, innocuous, the, site allowed potential, customers, to try the location, service by entering, their own cellphone. Number once. The information was inputted, the service, would notify the phone via text, or call to obtain consent and, only then would it provide the phone's location however. Shou. Was was, able to bypass, this consent, in just, over 10 minutes what, makes the philosopher, Isom is that, anyone, who particularly. Hackers, could access location, information for any cell number that they desire some. Of the abilities, location, smart lists on their website include, a service they call location, intelligence. Wherein. They claim this service can provide over 95%. Subscriber. Reach to, more than 400. Million devices, with, no app or software download. Required, direct. Connections, to the wireless carrier networks, and global, reach to, more than, 120. Million cell, tower IDs, monitor. All devices. Even when roaming, if you. Think that your computer, and landline, are clear location, smart also states their location, intelligence services, can geo locate over 3 billion, IP, addresses. Around the, world and their, landline, capabilities. Are advertised, as providing, name address and, business. Insights, and location. For more than 100. Million fixed. Landlines. Nationwide. So.

Right what else do we have for you tonight all, right we have a bit of a strange one here for you this, is, NCSE. Dot-com, this is an update, from Arizona. We're. Going to let's see where I'm just going to go through a little bit of this here for you and we're, gonna research, this some more but. The, school superintendent Diane. Douglas, for. This is for Arizona, school, superintendent Diane, Douglas is. Apparently, behind a rewrite, of science. Standards, for all Arizona, school children, that would delete references. To. Evolution. That's. A report, from kph. X in, Phoenix. As, NCSC. Previously, reported staffers. At the Arizona, State Department, of Education tampered, with the treatment of evolution, and allied, topics, in the, standards, and CSE's. Deputy, director Glenn branch told K. NAU, in, Flagstaff. That, we can be quite sure I think that the revisions, are aimed deliberately. At softening, the treatment of evolution. And thus misleading, teachers and students about, the scientific, standing, of evolution, k, ph ex cited, audio from a November, 2017. Republican. Candidate, for him in Tempe, in which, Douglass who is seeking re-election answered. A question by saying should. The theory of intelligent design be, taught along with the theory of evolution she. Said absolutely, adding, I had, a discussion with my staff because we're currently working on science standards, to make sure this issue was addressed in, the standards, were, working, on so. That is from. From. That alright let's go ahead and move to some more local things we have going on and then we're going to get to the City, Council, agenda that is coming up I believe it's on Wednesday we'll get to that in just a minute so stick with us.

Right moving on to the city a council, meeting that is coming up here we have actually, I'm sorry this one is the work session before, the City Council meeting this is going to be discussion, by the City Council pertaining. To the, fiscal year 2019. A preliminary, budget, this, is going on at five o'clock on the 23rd. Let's. See here once, again for the preliminary budget for 2009. We, do have they have some figures attached here they're, saying the revenue, for, fiscal, year of 2019. Is going to be about 23, and a half million dollars, the, expenses, are going to be about 28 million, dollars there's, gonna be some transfers, and that, is gonna make a net loss of about four point four million, dollars these are rough numbers that I'm putting up here I'll go ahead and transfer, this over so you can see just. A part of it. Hold. On one second while I, fiddle. With that for you there. We are all right. So as you can see here at. The bottom line where it says grand, totals right where my hon see right here where my head's at and grand totals you, have a revenue, at. 23.5. Million. Right there the. Expenses, and all of that so that is what they're going to be discussing, during, the, special, work session, before the normal City, Council meeting. All. Right now, moving on to the council, meeting itself, the council meeting itself, is going to be at 6:30. Once. Again on the 23rd. They've, got quite a few things coming up they, have some unfinished business, from. Last session, there's going to be discussion and possible action by the City Council pertaining. To vacation. Home rental, sales, tax, revenue. More. On that that, says, hmm. There's no action just information, to clarify questions, and concerns from. The last City Council meeting at. The last council meeting held, on may 9th 2018. There was discussion, pertaining, to the, vacation home rentals and the issue of whether vacation, home rental owners were paying their taxes, the, city of page is receiving, tax from vacation home rentals but, we receive it in various, reporting, categories this. Becomes a bit confusing, when trying to prepare their monthly reports, because the category dollars, received are based, on how the tax payer reports, their taxes, in the, PG 0 for 4 and PG, 1 for 4 tax codes some. Tax payers report, under the accommodations. Tax Group while, others report under the service retail real estate rental and lease Tax Group in February.
2018. They, added an additional, sheet to the monthly sales tax report to help identify these. Separate. Groups so, they're, going to be discussing that for once again for unfinished, business also.
