Bonding Tsunami Victims with Facial Recognition

Ushering in 2005 was an unforgettable experience to Edwin Yang and his colleagues. After Phuket of Thailand was ravaged by the tsunami, they went to local hospitals and temples to take images of the bodies or surviving victims.

For those four days, the director of Regal Cyber in Hong Kong and his team managed to capture some three hundreds images. And combined with the contribution of database from the International Victim Coordination Center at Phuket, the company established a facial recognition web site to assist families in searching for their missing members in the catastrophe.

The web site,, was set up on December 31st, 2004. It allows relatives to upload a photograph of their missing friends or family. The images will then be checked against a growing database of the faces of surviving or dead victims.

The PeopleMatch system has the ability to place up to 1,700 unique characteristics for an individual face in its database. It will then match these points with similar points from an uploaded facial photo. Upon verification, the system will call up a set of photos that matches the victim.

Due to the factors such as facial injuries, as long as reaching to a recognition rate of 65 percent, the web site will notify the respective families immediately, Yang told A&S.

He informed that four matches were successfully done in the first week of January. And the database has collected up to 1,300 facial images just within the first few days after the Internet set-up.

In addition to setting up the PeopleMatch’s platform, Regal Cyber partnered with local distributors of Viisage and Cognitec in Hong Kong. The two companies supplied facial recognition solutions for free for back-end systems.

“In this case, facial recognition is the most convenient tool to help the sufferers. It is a much faster alternative than DNA or tooth identification,” he stated. And indeed, the biometric technology has offered hope in the natural disaster.

='Brand New News From The Timber Industry!!'=

========Latest Profile==========
Energy & Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY)
Current Price $0.15

Recognize this undiscovered gem which is poised to jump!!

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities
Watch this One to Trade!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not
remain on the ground floor for long.

Keep Reading!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!

It was almost evening when Mr.. IX The mutual siege lasted until after seven o'clock, but it was rather one-sided.. We can call those dreams properly made up which are the result of an elaboration in every way analogous to the psychical action of our waking life.. His characters, with few exceptions, are extremes, caricatures.. He tried the defiant experiment of laughing for the effect of it, an experiment which brought him to his feet in startled terror; for his laughter was echoed.. He waved her back majestically.. There is only one thing left for me to do.. There being no space left for his address, he put none down.. When the dream appears openly absurd, when it contains an obvious paradox in its content, it is so of purpose.. Eventually he recognized them more readily than I.. Ralph, too, started off for a walk, but naturally not in the same direction.. They are facts that no one would deny--and we should have a poor opinion of the ass who, at--er--such a supreme moment, would attempt to suggest that his call was unthinking and without significance.. The back of the horse came into view, the dashboard became visible, and the bodies and the spirits of the two men rapidly rose.. When we get on the lake I will show you that in a boat, with a gentle breeze, such as we are likely to have today, you will find the motion quite as pleasing, and ever so much more inspiriting.. He was very proud of his ability to turn a vehicle in a narrow place.. Podington was on the shore and running at the top of his speed toward the horse.. We thus learn that the symptom has been constituted in order to guard against the outbreak of the anxiety.. May it please the Court, returned Colonel Starbottle with dignity, ignoring the counsel, the defendant's counsel will observe that he is already furnished with the matter--which I regret to say he has treated--in the presence of the Court--and of his client, a deacon of the church--with--er---great superciliousness.. They are now engaged at their game of astronomy, continued Mrs.. Joseph turned round and made a face at him...
