Jeremy Howard: The wonderful and terrifying implications of computers that can learn
TED | Published on Dec 16, 2014
What happens when we teach a computer how to learn? Technologist Jeremy Howard shares some surprising new developments in the fast-moving field of deep learning, a technique that can give computers the ability to learn Chinese, or to recognize objects in photos, or to help think through a medical diagnosis. (One deep learning tool, after watching hours of YouTube, taught itself the concept of “cats.”) Get caught up on a field that will change the way the computers around you behave … sooner than you probably think.

Banksters: the rescue plan
"The United States and Cuba will start talks on normalizing full diplomatic relations, marking the most significant shift in U.S. policy toward the communist island in decades, American officials said Wednesday. The announcement comes amid a series of new confidence-building measures between the longtime foes, including the release of American Alan Gross and the freeing of three Cubans jailed in the U.S."
Is it just me, or has anyone else picked up on the increased frequency of these lame commercials about how many important functions Government employees perform for us? They tend to go something like this "Without us, your food wouldn't get inspected." or "without us, Us borders would not be patrolled."
Every time I hear these pathetic attempts to sway the hearts and minds of the American people, I want to vomit!
So, I thought it would be a little fun to see who can come up with the most anti Government "Without us..." slogans. I'll start out with
I came across this story about the Japanese writer Haruki Murakami in The Forbidden Worlds of Haruki Murakami.
Through and through, Murakami is an individualist. He follows his own internal compass, and in doing so helps to guide the way for others. This story is one illustration.
In 2009, he was awarded the Jerusalem prize for the Freedom of the Individual in Society by the Israeli Government. Pro-Palestinian groups urged him not to travel to Israel, and not to accept the prize.
"Please turn your attention to the Palestinians, who are being denied their freedom and dignity as human beings," the letter from the Palestine Forum Japan said. "We would humbly ask you to consider the effects your receipt of the Jerusalem prize would have, what sort of message the world would receive in this Middle East situation, what kind of propaganda value it could have to Israel and the possibility of aggravating the critical situation Palestinians are facing."
A friend of mine that is a police officer locally brought it to my attention that they watched a training film. He did not know where the video came from, but it was pointed directly as those that hold the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Here is the video that was shown to represent "all" Constitutionalists.
Check out the 5:40 mark. Whole thing worth watching.
Rare preacher indeed! No lack of guts here!
"Among controversies featuring Blitzer is an episode during a 2012 elections interview. CNN went live to the Iowa Caucus to speak to Corporal Jesse Thorsen, a US military veteran and adamant supporter of Rep. Ron Paul. Thorsen praised Paul, who was trailing frontrunner Mitt Romney by fewer than 200 votes, for his non-interventionist ideals. But just as Thorsen began to get passionate the feed went out. “Sorry, we lost the signal,” Blitzer said, dismissing it as a technical malfunction. A lot of viewers didn’t buy into the tech-error excuse and cried censorship. "
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) on Tuesday announced he will "actively explore" a run for the White House in 2016.
The former Florida governor said in a Facebook post that he intends to create a new leadership PAC in January "that will help me facilitate conversations with citizens across America to discuss the most critical challenges facing our exceptional nation."
On November 22, 1963 our entire country was assassinated when JFK was killed in a coup and overthrow of our Nation's highest office.
The people didn't want LBJ, we wanted JFK, but we got Johnson and WAR instead of Kennedy and PEACE and wasn't that just grand?
On April 4th, 1968 the soul of our country was assassinated when Martin Luther King was killed in Memphis by a "lone assassin", a two-bit bum, who then traversed the globe on the run. We, the people of ALL colors didn't want Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to be our spiritual guides, we wanted Martin Luther King but we got the charlatans, instead. These charlatans have become "rich" in the trappings of earthly treasures but sorely lack the richness of God.
On June 5th, 1968 our last, great hope, Bobby Kennedy was assassinated as he sat on the cusp of being elected by the people to be our next President.
Australia should not embrace America, writes its former prime minister, but preserve itself from Washington’s reckless overreach.
Malcolm Fraser | December 16, 2014
IT IS time for Australia to end its strategic dependence on the United States. The relationship with America, which has long been regarded as beneficial, has now become dangerous to Australia’s future. We have effectively ceded to America the ability to decide when Australia goes to war. Even if America were the most perfect and benign power, this posture would still be incompatible with the integrity of Australia as a sovereign nation. It entails not simply deference but submission to Washington, an intolerable state of affairs for a country whose power and prosperity are increasing and whose national interests dictate that it enjoy amicable, not hostile, relations with its neighbors, including China.

According to a document recently released by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, now the Islamic State, is an intelligence asset.
The NSA document reveals the United States, Israel, and Britain are responsible for the creation of ISIS.
Earlier, we reported that various currency brokers such as FXCM and FxPro, would - as a result of the soaring liquidity in the USDRUB pair - suspend trading in the Russian Ruble (while other merely hiked margins to ridiculous levels). It appears things have escalated again, and as FXCM just reported, instead of just politely advising clients not to open new USDRUB position tomorrow, it has advised anyone long, or short, the USDRUB that their positions will be forcibly shut in moments.
