It most usually refers to observation of individuals or groups by government organizations, but disease surveillance , for example, is monitoring the progress of a disease in a community.

'Smart' electric grid may force many to rethink privacy issues
The “smart” electric grid may be just a little too smart. Once a smart meter is attached to a home it can gather a lot more than just how much electricity a family uses. It can tell how many people live in the house, when they get up, when they go to sleep and when they aren’t home. It can tell how many showers they take and loads of laundry they do. How often they use the microwave. How much television they watch and what kind of TV they watch it on. Almost 200,000 smart meters are now being installed in Colorado and across the country 52 million smart meters will be installed by 2015, according to a Federal Energy Regulatory ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
In New York City, do high school security guards have jurisdiction ...
In my school, after school closes, a crowd of students lingers on the public street outside the school. There are some storefronts, some walls, etc. where students stand and talk. The guards disperse the students every day at 3 PM, yelling orders to leave for the subway or further away from the school campus. They become quite aggressive and "in-your-face". They are not breaking up any violence or anything like that, just kids talking to their friends after the end of school. Students generally comply and leave. I have ignored the guards on several occasions and informed them that they have no authority, thus I may remain where ...

How is it that Bush could get the money for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from Democrat and Republican controlled congress but couldn't build a fence and keep it maintained? Couldn't combine that with more border guards that will employ people? Now Obama is the same way. We have tons of Aid for the banking industry and the auto industry, but no one is doing a damn thing about the border or illegal immigration at a time when millions of Americans ...
