Reverse CSI 11: Serco’s Patented Inmarsat Timing, Rothschild’s MH Dead Pool Fuze, Con Air Marcy’s SWAT Team Spot
David ‘Sherlock’ Hawkins, co-founder of Abel Danger, is developing reverse-engineered CSI storyboards for 3-act radio dramas and/or theatre plays to give injured communities a scene-by-scene analysis of the various high-value-target and mass-casualty events which appear to be associated with the negligent, reckless, wilful or fraudulent use of patented devices in the custody of Serco (formerly RCA GB 1929) and its investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd., since the Tizard Mission of September 1940.
Act 1: Script & Spot; Act 2: Shoot & Snuff; Act 3: Spin & Spoil
In the case of the apparent 2014 hacking of Boeing 777ER aircraft of MH Flights 370 and 17, the latter shot down by a missile carrying a proximity fuze, Hawkins alleges that N M Rothschild and Serco set up a death pool on the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) network to support betting on the times of deaths and body counts through 9/11 and sold seats on the network to the Netherlands Ministry of Defence PKI and the Australian Defence Organisation (ADO) PKI as DoD Approved External PKIs in 2013, and allowed Dutch and Australian insiders to bet on event outcomes for the missing or crashed planes
Hawkins alleges that Kristine “Con Air” Marcy, Field McConnell’s sister, criminalized the U.S. Marshals prisoner transportation network with money laundered through the DOJ Asset Forfeiture Fund in 1985 and deployed Con Air SWAT teams with patented devices for AWACS weapons directors, Inmarsat timing correction and proximity fuzes to spot fix Boeing aircraft crashes on 9/11 in America and 17 July 2014 in Eastern Ukraine and coordinate the spoliation of evidence over the federal bridge by proxies acting for the UK MoD, namely Serco and its investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd.
In the theatre plays and radio dramas to be established with selected talk show hosts, Hawkins expects to show how Serco has helped Kristine Marcy and the former IP lawyers and First Ladies Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama to intimidate witnesses, spin fake news and spoliate evidence which connects the spot fixed crashes of Boeing aircraft on 9/11 and in 2014 to U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, a former Rothschild investment banker for U.S. President Donald Trump and Serco, who apparently hosted a death pool for Serco shareholders on the 47th floor of the North Tower (WTC1) on 9/11.
Please help David at https://www.patreon.com/reverseCSIstoryboards with the funds he needs to reverse engineer crime scene investigations into high-value-target and mass-casualty events and obtain justice for injured communities—first of all in the court of public opinion and then in a court of law.

“Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17)[a] was a scheduled passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that was shot down on 17 July 2014 while flying over eastern Ukraine, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board. Contact with the aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, was lost when it was about 50 km (31 mi) from the Ukraine–Russia border and wreckage of the aircraft fell near Hrabove in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine, 40 km (25 mi) from the border. The shoot-down occurred in the War in Donbass, during the Battle of Shakhtarsk, in an area controlled by pro-Russian rebels. The crash was Malaysia Airlines‘ second aircraft loss during 2014 after the disappearance of Flight 370 on 8 March.
The responsibility for investigation was delegated to the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) and the Dutch-led joint investigation team (JIT), who concluded that the airliner was downed by a Buk surface-to-air missile launched from pro-Russian separatist-
The DSB and JIT findings confirmed earlier claims by American and German intelligence sources as to the missile type and launch area. In 2014 the US intelligence had also said that Russia had supplied the Buk missile to pro-Russian insurgents, and that the insurgents most plausibly shot down MH17 in error, misidentifying it as a military aircraft.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk laid the blame on professional soldiers that he said came from Russia, stating that “it wasn’t drunken militants with Ukrainian passports [who shot down the Malaysian plane], it was done by Russian professionals and coordinated from Russia”, adding that “the whole world has learned about the Russian lies and Russian propaganda.” As of May 2018, the Russian government rejects claims that Russia bears any responsibility for the crash, and denies involvement. The Russian defense ministry said that it had never deployed anti-aircraft missile systems in Ukraine. Several false conspiracy theories about the crash have since appeared in Russian media, including that the aircraft was followed by a Ukrainian military jet. The Russian Government holds Ukraine responsible since the crash happened in the Ukrainian flight information region.
The Ukrainian Air Force was used extensively in operations against the rebels, and several UAF aircraft had been shot down over the rebel-controlled territory, both before and after the MH17 incident. Immediately after the crash, a post appeared on the VKontakte social media profile attributed to Igor Girkin, leader of the Donbass separatist militia, claiming responsibility for shooting down a Ukrainian An-26 military transporter near Torez. This post was removed later the same day, and the separatists then denied shooting down any aircraft. In late July 2014, communications intercepts were made public in which, it is claimed, separatists are heard discussing an aircraft that they had downed. A video from the crash site, recorded by the rebels and obtained by News Corp Australia, shows the first rebel soldiers to arrive at the crash site. At first they assumed that the downed aircraft was a Ukrainian military jet, and were dismayed when they started to realise that it was a civilian airliner.”

In one aspect, the base station indicates to the transceivers a plurality of time slots, each transceiver selects one of the time slots at random, formats a burst including an indicator of the selected time slot and transmits the burst in that slot. In another aspect, the base station transmits to each transceiver a timing uncertainty value, which determines how the timing correction will be modified by the transceiver as the interval since last receiving a timing correction increases. Data bursts are transmitted in a format comprising a first unique word, a content field and a second unique word, in that order. The bursts are transmitted in a TDMA channel format which can accommodate both short and long bursts in a block format of constant periodicity.”

“Flight MH17 – Downed by a Proximity-Fuse Missile?
Early investigative reports, regarding the disaster of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, reveal that it was likely destroyed by a surface-to-air (SAM) missile which had a proximity-fuse detonation system.
How does a proximity-fuse detonation system work? What is its impact on people?
The development of the proximity fuse, during World War II, was one of the top-secrets of the war (and is credited with helping to shorten the conflict). This WWII-era video explains how the system works (and compares it with other types of bomb detonations).
Although MH17 was downed in 2014, if it was actually destroyed by a BUK-delivered missile, that missile would have detonated with a proximity fuse. The principle used during WWII is the same principle used with a Soviet-era BUK missile system.
A proximity-detonation system causes the missile to explode before it hits the target. As a result, shrapnel from the exploding missile comes at the target—in this instance, a plane—which when pierces the plane’s “skin.”
If that, in fact, was the cause of the disaster, what would have happened to the people on board the stricken plane?
More likely than not, they would have been instantly impacted by the blast force which would have caused the plane—likely traveling around 500 miles per hour—to instantly decelerate.
The forces on the plane itself, from such a sudden deceleration event, would have been profound. So would the effect on the passengers and crew. Everyone on board may have lost consciousness soon after it occurred.
Dr. James Vosswinkel, a trauma surgeon, led a study to determine how sudden deceleration effected passengers when TWA Flight 800 crashed off New York’s Long Island in 1996. He, and his colleagues, found that trauma to a human, in a mid-air explosion, occurs from three main sources:
The force of the blast itself, as it impacts the plane;
The massive deceleration when a plane, flying at 500 miles per hour, literally stops in mid-air; and
The impact of the fall as the stricken plane heads toward Earth.
In addition, losing cabin pressure at 33,000 feet can cause a loss of oxygen within seconds. That would also lead to a person’s loss of consciousness.
If travelers aboard Flight 17 had a loss of consciousness, soon after the plane was stricken, they may not have experienced the full trauma of the plane falling more than six miles to the ground.
This video clip, featuring historical newsreel footage about proximity-fuse detonation, is online via YouTube. We learn more about it from its YouTube description:
The proximity fuse was a radio transmitter/receiver that detected an object in its path. When the object was close enough, about 30 feet, the fuse would go off.
Before the proximity fuse, the range to the target had to be estimated and that range dialed into the shell. This was difficult against a maneuvering attack aircraft. The trick was to get the tiny radios rugged enough to withstand firing from an anti-aircraft gun.
…The proximity fuse was such a valuable secret that it was forbidden to be used over enemy territory until late in the war in case the enemy found a dud and become aware and possibly reproduce the technology or develop a countermeasure.
Heralded as an “organizational achievement transcending anything of the time … one of the most effective alliances among the military, academia, and industry,” the development of the Proximity Fuze during World War II was credited for reducing the duration of the war by at least a year. WWII is singularly distinguished as the only war in history in which the outcome of the war was significantly influenced by scientific breakthroughs that created weapons unknown at the war’s commencement.
Development of a radio-transmitter proximity fuse to detonate near a plane would require not just technological breakthroughs involving a variety of fields of expertise, but miniaturization of electronic systems that had never been accomplished, plus near perfect cooperation and coordination of the military forces (specifically the Navy and Army), universities (principally five), diversity of scientists from a variety of fields, industry (engineering laboratories, quality control, and production facilities), amateur radio operators, ordinance experts, testing facilities, along with an unprecedented level of teamwork.
Further, the project had to remain top secret during the war, despite ultimately employing about 1 million people in the production effort.
The system which worked so well during World War II still works today. The Soviet-era BUK missile system employs detonation-fuse technology.
If it is proven that such a missile strike caused the crash of MH17, we now have a better understanding of the mechanism which caused the deaths of all 298 people aboard the plane.”
“The analysis of communications between Malaysia Airlines Flight 370[a] and Inmarsat‘s satellite telecommunication network provide the only[b] source of information about Flight 370’s location and possible in-flight events after it disappeared from radar coverage at 2:22 Malaysia Standard Time (MYT) on 8 March 2014 (17:22 UTC,7 March), one hour after communication with air traffic control ended and the aircraft departed from its planned flight path while over the South China Sea. Flight 370 was a scheduled commercial flight with 227 passengers and 12 crew which departed Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at 0:41 and was scheduled to land in Beijing, China at 6:30 China Standard Time (6:30 MYT; 22:30 UTC, 7 March). Malaysia has worked in conjunction with the Australian Transport Safety Bureau to co-ordinate the analysis, which has also involved the UK’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch, Inmarsat, and US National Transportation Safety Board, among others. Others have also made efforts to analyse the satellite communications, albeit challenged by a lack of publicly available information for several months after the disappearance. On 29 July 2015, debris was discovered on Réunion Island which was later confirmed to come from Flight 370; it is the first physical evidence that Flight 370 ended in the Indian Ocean.
During flight, the aircraft maintains a datalink with a satellite communication network for data and telephone calls. The datalink connects the aircraft and a ground station via satellite, which translates (changes) the signal’s frequency and amplifies the signal; the ground station is connected to telecommunication networks which allows messages to be sent to and received from other locations, such as the airline’s operations centre. Normal communications from Flight 370 were last made at 1:07 MYT and the datalink between the aircraft and satellite telecommunication network was lost at some point between 1:07 and 2:03, when the aircraft did not acknowledge a message sent from the ground station. Three minutes after the aircraft left the range of radar coverage—at 2:25—the aircraft’s satellite data unit (SDU) transmitted a log-on message, which investigators believe occurred as the SDU started after a power interruption. Between the 2:25 message and 8:19, the SDU acknowledged two ground-to-aircraft telephone calls, which were not answered, and responded to automated, hourly requests from the ground station that were made to determine whether the SDU was still active. None of the communications from 2:25–8:19contain explicit information about the aircraft’s location. The aircraft’s final transmission at 8:19 was a log-on message; the aircraft did not respond to a message from the ground station at 9:15. Investigators believe the 8:19 log-on message was made when the SDU was restarting after the aircraft ran out of fuel and the aircraft’s auxiliary power unit was started.
The search for Flight 370 was launched in Southeast Asia near the location of the last verbal and radar contact with air traffic control. The day after the accident, staff at Inmarsat reviewed the log of communications between their network and Flight 370 and discovered that Flight 370 continued for several hours after contact with air traffic control was lost. On 11 March, they provided a preliminary analysis to investigators based on recorded burst timing offset (BTO) values. Relatively simple calculations can be made from BTO values to determine the distance between the aircraft and satellite at each transmission. When these distances are plotted on Earth, they result in rings which are further reduced to arcs, due to the limited range of the aircraft. Another value—burst frequency offset (BFO)—was analysed to determine the movement of the aircraft relative to the satellite, based on the Doppler shift of the signals, which provides the location of the aircraft along the BTO-derived arcs. Initial analysis of the BFO values showed a strong correlation with a track south into the southern Indian Ocean, west of Australia. On 24 March, Malaysia’s Prime Minister cited this analysis to conclude that Flight 370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean with no survivors. After the initial analysis, the BFO calculations were later adjusted to account for a wobble in the satellite’s orbit and thermal changes in the satellite which affected the recorded BFO values. Further analysis considered the BTO and BFO calculations with flight dynamics, such as possible and probable aircraft speeds, altitudes, and autopilot modes. Two statistical analyses were made and combined with calculations of Flight 370’s maximum range to determine the most probable location of Flight 370 at the time of the 8:19 transmission, which is along the 8:19 BTO arc from approximately 38.3°S 88°E to 33.5°S 95°E.”
“”Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article] From: email@example.com (Glenn Campbell, Las Vegas) Date: Tue, 7 Jan 1997 10:37:42 -0800
Subject: “Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article]
A correspondent passed this 1/6 article on to us. He adds: “The article in the hard-copy paper has a couple of pictures to go with the story (no pix on-line). One picture shows the shoulder patch on the aircrew uniforms, another shows prisoners lined up about to board a Convair 580. The paint job on the plane looked like INS or maybe US Marshals Service, it was a green stripe with an eagle forward of the door.”
The article is relevant here because of recent discussion of Con-Air flights using the “Janet” company name.
In the Disney film, Nicolas Cage plays a hapless prisoner who wanders into a hijack plot aboard a Marshals Service plane carrying a group of high-security inmates.
The Hollywood marshals rough up some of the prisoners, and the plane crashes, leaving the real Marshals Service frowning on the silver screen’s invention, said Kristine Marcy, a top official in charge of detentions.
“We don’t beat up our prisoners, and our planes certainly don’t crash,” Marcy said on a recent trip to San Diego, where she was trying to find more jail space for federal prisoners.
Marcy said the air transportation system inspires a high level of commitment in its personnel.
“People are always willing to be on standby or to work overtime,” she said, noting that the planes are not always used for prisoner transport.
After a hurricane flattened parts of the Virgin Islands last year, the prisoner transportation system flew in some of the first reinforcements to help establish law and order, she said.
After the Oklahoma City bombing, the airline flew evidence to the FBI crime laboratory [Quantico] in Washington, D.C., she said.”
“History – National Prisoner Transportation System On August 20, 1985, the U.S. Marshals Service acquired its first Boeing 727 used for prisoner transportation. The Marshals Service operated the National Prisoner Transportation System, one of the largest transporters of prisoners in the world.”
“Police conclude search of Starnet [which forfeited its network to IRS and Customs SWAT teams]
CBC News · Posted: Aug 24, 1999 11:26 AM ET | Last Updated: August 24, 1999
Police have wrapped up several days of searching the offices of Starnet Communications in Vancouver. They entered the company offices and homes of some directors on Friday.
Police were looking for evidence of illegal gambling, distributing child pornography, and money laundering.
Since the raid, Starnet officials say police just don’t understand their business.
The search warrant details 18 months of police investigation. It traces a network of companies registered in American and Caribbean jurisdictions.
The warrant also identifies Vancouver as the centre of Starnet’s operations, even though this is a grey under Canadian law.
Police note that Starnet’s revenues grew dramatically in the past two years, from betting and sex shows and from lucrative licensing agreements for its gaming software.
The investigations and pornography from company sites were grounds for Friday’s raid and seizure of company materials.
RCMP Constable Peter Thiessen says investigators left Starnet offices yesterday morning. He says, “They spent the better part of three days going through the business. And as a result of that search the investigation is continuing, but no charges have been laid.”
Starnet’s many investors were spooked by the raid. Share prices dropped almost 70-percent on Friday. However, the company insists the raid had minimal effect on its operation. Stocks rose slightly yesterday after a day of very heavy trading.
In written statements, company CEO Mark Dohlen said the Wall Street Journal calls Starnet the leader in Internet gaming and entertainment. He says companies like his, those on the cutting edge, are often misunderstood.
Yesterday, Starnet announced it will sell off the sex side of its business. It plans to focus more resources on gaming.
The Police investigation is expected to last for several more months.”

“States Work with Feds for PKI Interoperability BY: Drew Robb | August 14, 2001 The 1977 epic A Bridge Too Far recaptures one of the most fruitless battles of World War II — a costly attempt to capture six bridges that connected Holland and Germany. A major gamble from the outset, the campaign led to defeat and more Allied casualties than in the entire Normandy invasion. Fortunately, the folks at the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA) are having an easier time of it in an initiative aimed at handling some of the thornier questions in government security — exactly who do you trust when it comes to the handing out and acceptance of digital certificates during e-Government transactions, how do states and federal agencies interoperate to make such certs usable across the government spectrum, and what will it really take to establish “digital” trust to make paperless e-government a reality? The Cast FBCA has gathered an impressive array of federal agencies, states and vendors in an effort to make the initiative a success. On the federal side, there is heavy involvement by the Department of Defense, National Security Agency, General Services Administration, Treasury and the Federal CIOs Council. From the vendor community Entrust Technologies and Baltimore Technologies are directly involved in the FBCA from the technology side, but other PKI/security vendors such as RSA, Cylink, Verisign and Spyrus are also coordinating with the project. At the state level, Illinois is working closely with the FBCA in an interoperability pilot that will probably form the basis of how states share digital certificates with federal and possibly commercial entities. “We are just in the process of developing the cross-certification agreement between FBCA and the State of Illinois CA so we have not tested any applications yet,” said Brent Crossland, Deputy CIO for the State of Illinois. “Our timetable is to have the agreement in place by September along with some initial applications.” According to Crossland, Washington and New Jersey are also in discussions with the FBCA.”
“The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was a wartime intelligence agency of the United States during World War II, and a predecessor of the modern Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The OSS was formed as an agency of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) to coordinate espionage activities behind enemy lines for all branches of the United States Armed Forces. Other OSS functions included the use of propaganda, subversion, and post-war planning. On December 14, 2016, the organization was collectively honored with a Congressional Gold Medal.”
“Nathaniel Mayer Victor Rothschild, 3rd Baron Rothschild, (1910-1990), was a biologist, a cricketer, a wartime officer for the UK Security Service (MI5), a senior executive with Royal Dutch Shell and N M Rothschild & Sons, and an advisor to the UK governments.
Known throughout his life as Victor, he was the third child and only son of Charles and Rozsika Rothschild. The family home was Tring Park Mansion. He had three sisters, Miriam (1908–2005) who became a distinguished entomologist, Nica (1913–1988), who became a patron of highly influential jazz musicians, and Elizabeth, known as Liberty (1909–1988).
He attended Harrow and Trinity College Cambridge, where he worked in the Zoology Department before gaining a PhD in 1935. At Trinity College, Cambridge, he read Physiology, French and English. While at Cambridge Victor was said to have a playboy lifestyle, enjoying water-skiing in Monaco, driving fast cars, collecting art and rare books and playing cricket for the University and Northamptonshire. Victor married Barbara Hutchinson in 1933, and the couple had three children, Sarah Rothschild (b.1934), Nathaniel Charles (Jacob) Rothschild (b.1936) and Miranda Rothschild (b. 1940). The marriage was later dissolved.
Victor became the third Lord Rothschild in 1937 on the death of his uncle Walter. He sat as a Labour Party peer in the House of Lords, but spoke only twice there during his life (both speeches were in 1946, one about the pasteurization of milk, and another about the situation in Palestine).
During the Second World War Victor worked for the Intelligence Service, and earned the George Medal for his bomb disposal work. In early 1939, he travelled to the United States where he visited the White House to discuss the issue of accepting Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany. In 1939, he was recruited to work for MI5 where he remained for the duration of the War. He was attached to B division, under deputy director Guy Liddell, responsible for counterespionage. In 1940 he produced a series of secret reports on German Espionage Under cover of Commerce and later founded section ‘B1c’ at Wormwood Scrubs, the wartime home of MI5. This was an ‘explosives and sabotage section’, and worked on identifying where Britain’s war effort was vulnerable to sabotage and counter German sabotage attempts. This included personally dismantling examples of German booby traps and disguised explosives. For this, he was awarded won the George Medal in 1944 for dangerous work in hazardous circumstances. This involved dismantling a pair of German time bombs concealed in boxes of Spanish onions in Northampton. By late 1944, Victor was attached to the 105 Special Counter Intelligence Unit of the SHAEF, a joint operation of MI5 and X2, the counterespionage branch of OSS, a precursor of the CIA, operating in Paris.”

Display 36 provides a display to the user of the unit 20 and shows the location of friendly forces as well as unfriendly or unidentified forces in the area. Display 36 displays text messages for the user of the warning unit 20. The microprocessor 38 together with memory 40 provide microprocessor control of the operations of the warning unit 20. The geographic locating system includes GPS processor 46, GPS receiver 42, and GPS antenna 44, and it is used to determine the exact location of the warning unit 20. The unit 20 is able to broadcast and receive military force information, such as location and status (i.e. friendly, unfriendly, unidentified statuses). An expert system military action advisory system and method for advising military troops or personnel of firing decisions is also disclosed. A firing index is determined based on the membership variables, and the firing index is used to help make the firing decisions. The membership variables and the firing index are defined for an expert system or fuzzy logic system, and the expert system or fuzzy logic system helps determine making the firing decisions. The system and method operate by transmitting target and friendly force GPS coordinate information to determine danger. Alternatively, only target coordinates are transmitted with fire danger indices calculated on a distributed basis by individual warning units and transmitted to the source of fire without friendly force location coordinates to assist in making final firing decisions.”

“Motorola Solutions Inc’s Dynamic encryption key selection for encrypted radio transmissions 1993-06-22 US5222137A Grant Abstract A radio (100) transmits and receives encrypted signals having unencrypted key identifiers, allowing other radios having the corresponding key identifiers and encryption keys to communicate with radio (100). Prior to transmitting an encrypted message, radio (100) selects a unique key identifier automatically and uses the corresponding encryption key to encrypt the message that will be transmitted. Radio (100) transmits the key identifier in an unencrypted format with the encrypted message in order to allow other radios to determine the encryption key used in encrypting the message. When receiving an encrypted message, radio (100) uses the predetermined process stored in the radio (100) to properly select the proper encryption key for use in decrypting the incoming message.”

“Boeing Begins World Headquarters Operations in Chicago
The Boeing Company began operations on schedule today [Sep 4, 2001] at its new world headquarters building in downtown Chicago.
Approximately 200 employees began unpacking and familiarizing themselves with the building, located on the Chicago River at 100 North Riverside. The company expects approximately 400 employees to be working on the building’s top 12 floors by the end of the year.
Boeing and a team of more than 70 subcontractors, vendors and consultants delivered the finished office space, sophisticated telecommunications system, and computing infrastructure on schedule after 117 days of focused, intense effort. The aggressive schedule was driven by the company’s commitment to employees with families to coordinate the opening with local school schedules.
Boeing Chairman and CEO Phil Condit – who will officially commemorate the opening of the new Boeing World Headquarters during a ceremony at the building tomorrow – announced in March a broad rearchitecture of the company that included the headquarters relocation. In addition, the leaders of the company’s business units were given increased authority and responsibility to run their operations based on the needs of their customers, markets and communities where they do business.
“Boeing is in the midst of many exciting changes, and our new world headquarters in Chicago is part of our ongoing transformation,” Condit said. “We intend to grow our enterprise here and create businesses that open frontiers and advance technology, while allowing our business leaders in other locations to drive their businesses to their full potential.”
The building is designed with a vision of instant access to information by anyone from anywhere. More than 225 miles of data, communications and security cable were installed to support the more than 300 computers and 500 telephones needed on opening day.
Office spaces have been equipped with more than 3,000 data and telephone connections to support future information technology advancements along with systems needed to meet the goal of wireless connectivity in the future Boeing employees in Chicago are just a mouse click away from any Boeing facility, customer or supplier in 145 countries. Boeing employees, customers and suppliers visiting the new world headquarters will find a number of “mobile desk” touchdown spaces that provide Internet and LAN access, and equipment needed to be productive while away from their home offices.”
