Hmm, does 7/11 experience count?

BA (yes A not S) Computer Science. That's it for degrees.

However...

Developed one of the first cellular 3-D computer models of fire propagation, as a high school independent study project (carried out over several years, including two summer stints testing models at the USCG Marine Fire Safety Research center).

Lab technician, with experience in constructing, calibrating, repairing, programming, etc. various data acquisition instrumentation (and other de facto EE work) in physics, fire safety, and medical research lab settings.

Computer game designer.

Software developer specializing in interactive applets for college curricula. (This is more relevant than it sounds. Much of the work consists of receiving a garbled description of what the desired educational simulation is supposed to demonstrate, from a professor with no clue about how to specify software functionality. This is often followed by reading the course textbook to figure out how the simulation should actually work to demonstrate the principles invovled. Generously, I'm usually allocated two or three entire days to go from ignorant of a topic, to able to design demonstrations of it for teaching others.)

Experienced (but only sometime professional) explainer.

Respectfully,
Myriad

Late post to this, but I just found it now.

BA (cum laude) in Chemistry
Currently in a Ph.D program in Science and Technology Studies (a relatively new field that studies the history and sociology and philosophy of science and technology, I'm interested primarily in the history of chemistry, but also the sociology of knowledge)

I can tell you anything you ever wanted to know about the 757/767 and much, much, more.....
Here's a test of your knowledge. Was the jet engine remnant found at Church and Murry on 9/11 from a PW JT9D?

Hmmm.

Mine needs modification as well. It currently reads:
Quote:
Huntsman:
1. Military Personel (14 years exp. comp sys operator with special security clearance)
2. Military Medic
3. AAS in Comp. Sys Tech.
4. BSc IT
5. Combat Engineer (explosives, heavy equipment)
5. College courses in Elect. Engineering, Comp Sci, Physics.
It should be changed to read:
Quote:
Huntsman:
1. Army Combat Medic (14 years exp.)
2. Army Systems Administrator (3 years exp., Secret clearance, miltary level 2 system security course)
3. AAS in Comp. Sys Tech.

5. Combat Engineer (explosives, heavy equipment)
5. College courses in Elect. Engineering, Comp Sci, Physics.

For mine, "DSA" should be "NSA". Now I have to kill you, cut your head off and put it in a safe.

BS in Political Science (yes S not A). I am a news and political junkie following national and international events since 1968 starting with the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. I am also a White Nationalist and have been following ‘The Movement’ since the early 70's. I came to the claims of 9/11 conspiracy theorists by first examining the 2001 anthrax attacks. I have attempted to read every article written on the anthrax mailings and consider myself an expert on this bio-terror attack.

US Air Force 1966-70, AFSC 57150, Fire Protection Specialist with service at Wheelus Air Base, Libya 1966-68, Pope AFB, North Carolina 1968-70. As part of on-going career edevelopment, I took a college-level course in arson investigations. Over the course of years, I had occassion to teach classes in the use of improvised weapons and foreign weapons, as well as other esoteric subjects for my duty section.

ETS in 1970 and returned to collefe, majoring in Special Education. Decided at the begining of my senior year and the end of the money that I was in the wrong major. (I was doing just fine until I had to deal with autistic clients. )

Returned to active duty in US Army, PMOS 94B30, Food Service Sergeant, SMOS 51M30, Fire Protection Sergeant. With my educational background, I caught a lot of the training duties for my section, which meant being sent to fill a seat at classes dealing with basic soldier skills, unit-specific issues and legal concerns. Then I had to come back and give the classes to my section.

Field duty with infantry units usually left me with a lot of down time to read, and access to the trasining NCOs. Getting on their good side provided me an opportunity to watch or participate in a lot of training prep, including things like preparing ANFO simulators and demolition charges and remote triggering devices and what not.

I retired with disability after a total of 14 1/2 years as a result of a bicycle accident. Surprising what you can learn about the health care system when you have a unique medical issue and access to a major teaching hospital. The metal parts since installed in my shoulder make an interesting training aid for security personnel.

I currently work part time in a variety of day-labor jobs and as a role-player in training scenarios. Don't ask why I have to be evasive sometimes about what that entails. You probably know the drill.

While in Libya, I attempted, with little success, to learn Arabic, but it did get me into places that the average American with an attitude could not go. I have even read the Q'uran cover-to-cover. Just let someone try to repeat the hawkish interpretation of 2. s 191 in my presence. First of all, I will recite the WHOLE passage, starting from verse 190, as it should. It means something entirely different from what Hannity, O'Reilly or the fat deaf junky would have you believe.

I speak rather decent German, and that gave me a different perspective on how Europeans view us. I also spent a year in Korea and became completely immersed in Korean village life.

Sometimes it surprises me how limited most people's life experiences are. I guess that is why some people buy wholesale what I can see to be pulled out of someone's lower torso.

Counter Terrorism. (Which means I count terrorist activity)
Counter Intelligence. (Which that means I counter intelligence will lies and wild hypothesis)
Hand to hand combat expert. (I practiced with wet paper bags)
Small arms tactics and employment. (Choking people to death with your arms bent)
And .........Hush Puppies make me sad.

I have been declared 'dead' when I was uninjured, so that means I am an illusionist as well.
I was deemed 100% healthy when I had a shoulder torn apart, four pinched nerves in my neck and back, new holes in my right side, and a punctured lung which fully collapsed. (all at once)

I can burn the hours of the day and night away thinking about things I can do to get out of the house. Which I never leave, because I'm lost in thought about where I want to go.
I am never in a relationship for more than a year. I have nightmares at least twice a week, and can be violent went I wake up out of one.
(I've never hurt any lady, it just scares the hell out of them)
I cannot sleep with a weapon near me because of it. Yeah, I lost a jacket that way that was hanging on my closet door.

No, I am not crazy....just a little warped.


Oh, I add nothing towards education for proving/debunking 9/11 events as far as fire, steel, planes, space weapons, etc.
However, I can make a fair body guard for those that can.
My disability from an event does not restrict me that much, it just stops me from operational opportunity. Disability of 1% is 1% too much. And mine is quite a bit more than that.

I will add these to the next update. I am a little confused as to what organization you are a "Counter Intelligence/Counter Terrorism" worker with, or your position D.A...perhaps a little clarity (I know that goes against the whole counter intelligence thing, which makes me wonder about the credentials in the first place...lol).

TAM
That is the idea.
Me listing information regarding who I was an operator for (if anyone) will not help with that list, as none of it aids in the credentials needed to show proper educational levels in related fields.

For all intensive purposes, just consider me a kook.

I humbly submit my relevant background.

BS Industrial Engineering - University of Dayton

Among other heavy industry manufacturing engineer responsibilities I had 10 years of manufacturing engineering experience at McDonnell Douglas on commercial and military aircraft assembly. MD-80 final assembly. MD-11 nose structure, C-17 center fuselage structure. This involves understanding materials, methods, and tooling on how to construct aircraft fuselage, empanage and wings.

-Microcomputer Modules 2
-Introduction to Fire Science
-Firefighter 1
-Firefighter 2
-Truck Company Operations
-Basic Incident Command System
--FEMA ICS 100,200,700,800
-Fire Behavior and Arson Awareness
-Principles of Fire Investigation
--Including Incendiary Devices (I.E. Thermite) which by the way ISN'T AN EXPLOSIVE!
-Principles of Building Construction
--Both Combustible and Non-Combustible
-Introduction to Code Enforcement
--Basic Code Enforcement

I was an active firefighter in Upstate New York for 3.5 years.

New York State Office of Fire Prevention & Control gave me enough certificates to crush Dylan Avery's empty skull

So you are marketing 9/11 woo? Marketing degree would be required or desired to push the lies of 9/11 truth without facts. Standard marketing, as many perceive include the big lie; and 9/11 truth movement needs that.

Wow alot more people have added, I may have to update earlier than August.

Rahne, remember the list is compiled in order to prove to those that would question us, that we are not a bunch of teens in highschool, but rather a large group of well educated individuals. My qualifications wrt to 9/11 are near nil myself.

أنا طالبة في اللغة العربية
(I am still studying Arabic.)

Will be at intermediate level by next summer. Have passed each level so far, and doing okay. I can say that I'm far enough along in learning Arabic, that when I watched United 93 recently (again), I understood quite a bit of what the hijackers were saying. It was strange, especially the part where the hijackers learned about the WTC, from messages broadcast by ATC, to hear their reaction. Of course, it was a dramatization, but very creepy nonetheless.

Arabic is directly related to my job (law enforcement), but might be a helpful skill someday.

...marketing 9/11 woo?

...lies of 9/11 truth...

Wow! I hope some day I'm smart enough to even know what that means.


In the meantime, do you want to know what's really cool?

Military-deception - or MILDEC - is simply marketing, weaponized!

Plus - and this is the fun part - as a physicist, I really understand how nonlinear control engineering is applied to weaponizing the media.

I understand how simple feedback is used to generate harmonics in the media loops - the media circuitry. These harmonics are exploited.

It's very nifty once you see it. (I doubt you see it.)

Hey, that's why you should get Paul's Magic Filter - to filter for nonlinear noise, or, in this case, MILDEC. (I'll give it to you for free.)

Inducing resonance doesn't take brute force or numbers; inducing resonance takes just the right touch. It's a finesse thing.

Just so you don't think I am making this stuff up, there are countless papers put out by the military and military-related personnel on weaponizing the media, using principles of marketing (and game theory - gotta have your game theory or your out of the game...oh! and CARVER Target Analysis...whatever you do, don't forget CARVER Target Analysis.)

By the way: you're the target (and MILDEC seems to have scored a direct hit).

No shame - they're pros.


So am I.


Max

Would you like to know what that means Max Photon? NYCEMT86 will tell Max Photon what that means.

The 9/11 Truth Movement has continued to tell us that all the evidence we provide is fabricated. The real truth is, the truth movement has conveniently left information out of eyewitness statements.

Example 1:

Here we have a Conspiracy Theorist version of Firefighter Craig Carlsen eyewitness statement

“ we heard explosions coming from building two, the south tower. It seemed like it took forever, but there were about ten explosions. . . . We then realized the building started to come down.” -- Firefighter Craig Carlsen

Here is the offical statement of Firefighter Craig Carlsen

"I guess about three minutes later you just heard explosions coming from building two, the south tower. It seemed like it took forever, but there were about ten explosions. At the time I didn't realize what it was. We realized later after talking and finding out that it was the floors collapsing to where the plane had hit." -- Firefighter Craig Carlsen


We don't need to fabricate anything, we don't need to pick and choose the words that fit our story best. Gravy did a 32 page paper alone to correct the lies of just one flier that was being handed out at Ground Zero.

Many CTs call us Nazi's, brainwashed or sheep. The truth is we aren't being deceived into believing in obvious fabrications of the mass produced final cut of the "truth".

Example 2:

"Molten Steel" was found at Ground Zero. Its always Steel with CTs, the problem is NOBODY KNOWS what it is and the most likely suspect of this molten material is aluminum and here are a few facts.

1, Aluminum melts at a lower temperature (approx. 660*C or 1220*F)
2. The outside of the WTC was covered in Aluminum and lets not forget about the aircraft, they are made out of what? Thats right Aluminum
3. Even though at temperatures greater then 660*C Aluminum does glow red, the hydrocarbons mixing in with aluminum would have been efficient enough to burn red/orange in the infamous video that started Steven Jones thermite theory.


Please ask for sources if wanted, I am not allow to post links yet.

Having read this forum from the beginning...

...I am impressed with the breadth of knowledge brought to bear upon the truly bizarre and frightening 'Truth' movement.

I really don't have any scientific expertise, (although I am a graphic artist/animator in television, for what its worth) but every valuable contribution by all of you pretty much gels with what my common sense has told me.

I work at a national network here in Canada, and I saw 9-11 transpire almost from the very beginning via a live Reuters newsfeed with no commentary. Sure looked like the planes caused it to me.

(BTW, my wife's direct superior was in the Windows on the World North tower(?) for a conference. One of 23 Canadians in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was identified about 1 year later.)

Calling all fire and explosives experts...Max Photon here.

---

Thanks Tam,

I hope the piece I included wasn't out of place.

The topic is 9/11 expertise.

Someone seemed a bit confused about the relevance of marketing, and it is an asset in 9/11 research, so I thought I would illuminate some of the value.


Does Dr. Paul Worsey, explosives expert seen on Demolition Dynasty, post here, or does anyone know him?

If not, I will invite him to join the forum.

You guys would love him. I am pretty confident Dr. Worsey thinks I'm a complete idiot, judging by our communications, and the guy doesn't seem afraid to hold back. (And why should he? Life is short.)

Anyway, he would be great for making short work of my claim that shock-tube can be seen - firing! - in WTC2 - (or backing my claim, if I can get him to clean the smudges off his glasses...you know, all that blasting and everything.)

Barring that, if there are any explosives experts present, I'd really appreciate it if you could identify yourselves on one of my threadbare threads. I need your expertise.

Regards,

Max
