So, for example, you'll quite often see wait times [on] screens in airports driven by our technology. This technology has really been used to measure wait times and things like that, but now obviously the focus has shifted towards trying to help airports keep their environment safe,” Strens said. … [Read more...] about Airports embracing new social distancing technology that can track travelers’ movements while in line
The Nixonian law and order backlash drove a wave of repressive criminal-justice policies that carried through for decades with such force that even Democrats like Bill Clinton felt the need to endorse them in order to win elections.
