This map is a real-time visualization of cyber-attacks around the world.  You can see where the attack is coming from and where it is targeted.  Keep in mind this is just a small fraction of attacks taking place at any given time.  Example:  The US Navy gets hit with 110,000 cyber attacks every hour.

Please Remember

On December 25th, 1969 I was in the Air Force and stationed at an airbase in Libya, Africa.  It was the only time in my 68 years that I ever spent Christmas without family. Even though there were 30,000 other airmen on that airbase, it was the loneliest time of my life.  Please remember those serving our country who are away this Christmas...

In 2009 the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence decided to investigate the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program.  Today they made their findings public.  After five years of work they ended their investigation by taking 6,000 pieces of perfectly good paper, covering it with perfectly good ink and making a perfectly good pile of manure.

How About You

Coming Soon To Your Favorite Hotel

How SPG Keyless Works

Become an SPG member and download the SPG App to your smart phone.  When you do your smart phone will be registered and this will allow push notifications.  After booking a reservation at a keyless hotel and approximately 24 hours before arrival, SPG members are invited to opt-in to SPG keyless.  Guests will receive a push notification noting that they are checked in and the SPG App will update with his/her room number and Bluetooth key when the room is ready.  Upon arrival at the hotel, the guest can completely bypass the front desk and go directly to his/her room.  After ensuring his/her Bluetooth is enabled, the guest simply opens the SPG App, holds the smartphone to the door lock, waits for the solid green light and enters the room.  The Bluetooth key remains enabled until check out time the following morning of your last day's stay.  The room is billed to your credit card and you receive an e-mail receipt.

Good Fracking News

"The fracking revolution in America's energy industry means that we are no longer a bit player in global energy production.  Now our country is well-positioned for energy independence by the end of the decade and for world energy supremacy for decades to come. Already the U.S. has surpassed Saudi Arabia as the No. 1 oil producer and Russia as the No. 1 natural gas producer.  We can and should use our nearly unlimited gas and oil supplies to drive a stake through the heart of OPEC - forever."

FRACKING:  A technique in which rock is fractured by a hydraulically pressurized liquid which results in cracks being formed in bedrock thus releasing trapped natural gas or petroleum.
