    The Catcher Was a Spy

    This movie is based on a true story of espionage and thrilling drama. It is the story of Morris “Moe” Berg, who was a catcher for the Boston Red Sox during the twenties and thirties. He had also attended ivy league schools which were known for their patriotism back in the day (things are very different now in that regard arn’t they?). Berg was also a gifted linguist who had mastered seven languages and had impressed Bill Donovan, a former baseball player himself. Later as Donovan led the OSS he recruited Berg and eventually tapped him for an incredible mission, hunt down the head of the Nazi atomic weapons program Werner Heisenberg (yes, that Heisenberg).

    We encourage all students of espionage and history to read the book and see the movie, seeing great characters from history portrayed in film is a great way to etch events in your mind.

    What are other saying about the movie? Here is a tweet from author Patrick K. O’Donnell:

    James J. Andrews: The World’s First Cyber Warrior

    James J. Andrews (c. 1829 – June 7, 1862) was a Kentucky civilian who worked for the Union Army during the early years of the American Civil War. He led a daring raid behind enemy lines on the Western and Atlantic Railroad, known as the Great Locomotive Chase. The mission failed and Andrews and seven fellow raiders were executed by the Confederates on the charge of spying.

    He was also one of, perhaps even the first, cyber warriors in history. First, some more background on the Great Locomotive Chase:

    This was a military raid that occurred April 12, 1862, in northern Georgia during the American Civil War. James J. Andrews was a civilian scout working for the Union Army. He led a crew of volunteers in commandeering a train, The General and took it northward toward Chattanooga, Tennessee, doing as much damage as possible to the vital Western and Atlantic Railroad (W&A) line from Atlanta to Chattanooga as they went. They were pursued by Confederate forces at first on foot, and later on a succession of locomotives, including The Texas, for 87 miles.

    But what about cyber war? The civil war was the first conflict which took place with electronic communications: The Telegraph. This means that information could be transmitted at a distance. If the confederates used their telegraph lines to transmit information on the locomotive chase it could be stopped sooner. Andrews new this. So throughout the raid his men destroyed every telegraph line they could find, which significantly delayed the ability to stop them. It also significantly degraded the telecommunications infrastructure of the confederacy. This was the first cyber attack in known history.

    But, back to the story: Because the Union men had cut the telegraph wires, the Confederates could not send warnings ahead to forces along the railway. Confederates eventually captured the raiders and quickly executed some as spies, including Andrews; some others were able to flee. Some of the raiders were the first to be awarded the Medal of Honor by the US Congress for their actions. As a civilian, Andrews was not eligible.

    Interesting isn’t it. The first cyber war needed help from civilians.

    Sylvanus Morley: This Real Life Indiana Jones was an ONI Spy

    Sylvanus Griswold Morley (June 7, 1883 – September 2, 1948) was an American archaeologist, epigrapher, and Mayanist scholar who made significant contributions toward the study of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization in the early 20th century.

    But he was far more than that. Sylvanus Morley worked for the Office of Naval Intelligence during World War I. He conducted espionage while using his field work as an archeologist as cover. He risked his life multiple times to provide insights into German activities and served with honor, keeping his role secret forever. Details of his operations were not revealed till long after his passing.

  • Invisible Secret Spy Nano Wireless Earphone Earpiece

    This mini earpiece is an electromagnetic wave inductive and receiving device with a micro earpiece designed to fit exactly in ear canal for secret communication. The sound is clear, but not as loud as a normal earphone, so It is not really useful to use in a loud area.

    How can it be used?

    -Communication for Security
    -Students
    -Law enforcement
    -Private investigators
    -Business Professionals

    1)How do you wear the earpiece?
    – Clean and dry out your ears thoroughly before use
    -Wear the loop set, connect batteries & connector & plug the jack into your phone
    -Turn volume on the lowest setting
    -Turn your head to the left or right so your ears are horizontal to the ground and ceiling. Place the earpiece in your ear. You’ll hear a noise when it touches your ear drum. NOTE: It will have to touch your ear drum to function. If not, the sound will be too quiet
    -Slowly turn up volume

    2)How do you’re taking it out?
    -Place the magnet near your ear canal and slowly turn your head so your ear is parallel to the ground. Gravity and the force of the magnet will pull the earpiece to the magnet. It may help to use a metal stick on the end of the magnet

    3)Does the earpiece require power?
    – No, power comes from the loop set by the batteries

    4)The volume is too low or I will be able to’t hear anything. Why?
    -This means it was once not positioned accurately. It will have to touch the ear drum to function accurately. Remove the earpiece and position it again

    5)How is the sound quality when it’s in my ear?
    – The sound is clear because the system doesn’t product any background noise. If you hear any odd noises, check your phone

    6)Can I listen to music?
    – Music requires a hifi earphone. It is not suggested to use for music
    Invisible wireless earpiece receives signal by an inductive coil across electromagnetic fields (like a radio)
    Works with any mobile phone with a 3.5mm jack or with the usage of an adapter (not included)
    Completely hidden and discreet communication
    Earpiece Dimensions: 3x2mm
