Satellite imagery from space agencies sought in search for missing Belle Isle woman

ORLANDO, Fla. – The family of a missing Belle Isle woman made a plea Tuesday for space agencies to provide satellite imagery as the search continues for Stephanie Hollingsworth.

There’s a $10,000 reward for information leading to Hollingsworth, who was last seen Sept. 25 at a Walmart shopping center at 5991 S. Goldenrod Road in Orlando.

Hollingsworth’s husband, Scott, and other family members held a news conference, along with Bill Moore, a retired Orlando police detective, who shared details about emerging technologies they want to use to help find Stephanie Hollingsworth’s 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Moore said they’re seeking help from NASA, SpaceX, L3Harris Technologies, Microsoft, Amazon and Geospatial Enthusiasts.

“We can get lucky to have a satellite passing overhead to capture her either walking to the car or the car leaving that parking space,” Moore said. “The family requests the assistance of any corporation or individual to search stored satellite

Google Shared Search Data With Feds Investigating R. Kelly Victim Intimidation Case

Topline

Google disclosed the IP addresses of anyone who searched for an arson victim’s address to the federal agents, which investigators used to pinpoint the device used by the alleged perpetrator, according to court documents unsealed earlier in the week, highlighting another instance of Google submitting to a so-called “keyword warrant.”

Key Facts

Federal investigators used the data shared by Google to link Michael Williams— an associate of musician and accused sex offender R. Kelly —  who allegedly set fire to the car belonging to a witness in the Kelly case, according to snippets of the court filings shared by Detroit News reporter Robert Snell.

“Keyword warrants” are a type of reverse search warrant in which law enforcement seeks data regarding all individuals

Google is sharing user data tied to search keywords with law enforcement

The filing had been submitted in July, but wasn’t made public until October 6th.

Williams’ lawyer, Todd Spodek, intends to challenge the warrant for allegedly violating his client’s rights. Search warrants are normally targeted at a narrow group of likely suspects — this was aimed at anyone looking for certain terms. It could be “misconstrued or used improperly,” Spodek said.

Experts are concerned that “reverse” warrants, including geofence warrants that target everyone in a given area, violate Fourth Amendment rights protecting against overly broad searches. A federal judge in Illinois has already ruled that the approach violates the Fourth

Spotify will now let you search for a song by its lyrics on iOS and Android

For those times when you’re constantly singing a line of a song but just can’t remember what song those lyrics came from, Spotify can now help you with that. You can now search for songs by their lyrics on iOS and Android (via 9to5Mac).

The feature looks to be pretty straightforward — type in some lyrics into Spotify’s search bar and the app will surface songs that match. Songs that could be what you’re looking for will have a “Lyrics match” tag, as you can see in this tweet from Spotify designer Lin Wang:

(Reuters) – ION Acquisition Corp 1 made its debut on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday after raising $225 million in an initial public offering (IPO), the only current blank-check acquisition company focusing on the Middle East region.

DuckDuckGo slams Google’s Android search engine auction as “fundamentally flawed”

Microsoft’s Bing search engine has beaten out competitor DuckDuckGo and will now be offered as an option for Android users during setup in select European countries, according to the results of Google’s most recent default search engine auction. DuckDuckGo, previously the most frequently offered alternative, was not pleased, and the company slammed Google’s auction process as pay-to-play.

“This EU antitrust remedy is only serving to further strengthen Google’s dominance in mobile search by boxing out alternative search engines that consumers want to use and, for those search engines that remain, taking most of their profits from the preference menu,” DuckDuckGo wrote in a blog post published yesterday. “The auction model is fundamentally flawed and must be replaced.”

Google hosts the auctions in response to a landmark 2018 European Union antitrust ruling, which fined the dominant search giant a record-breaking €4.3 billion ($5 billion) after finding Google was illegally tying its

New technology will cut time and resources for Outer Banks search rescue crews

OUTER BANKS, N.C. (WAVY) — Search and rescue crews on the Outer Banks are hoping a new piece of technology will help cut down on time and resources when emergencies happen.

It’s called AquaEye, a handheld side scan sonar.

“This actually looks underwater and tells us what’s there as far as hard surfaces or soft surfaces such as a human being,” said Mirek Dabrowski, the director of Surf Rescue.

For 21 years, Dabrowski has worked for Surf Rescue, which provides water rescue for multiple municipalities including the town of Duck, Southern Shores and Dare County, as well as Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

He enjoys his job because of the people he works with, as well as being able to help people, which AquaEye will continue to help them achieve.

“We’re not interested in making a lot of searches. Once you get them out and make sure they’re safe, you go
