So what happened to the theory that the shortening of telomeres was responsible for aging?
RTFA and you might then understand the issue.
What they don't clearly say is the real reason they dropped the bans is because the bans would likely not be legal if TTIP were implemented.
TTIP removes the ability of the gov't and EU to protect people and the environment in many ways. ISDS allows companies to sue governments if some new law causes them to lose profits. In effect, new laws to protect people can not be written if they impinge on some corporations TTIP given right to make profit at any expense.
TTIP is insanely bad, it is undemocratic, written by The Commission and corporations in order to help corporate profits at the expense of jobs, health, public serivces and the environment.
This capitulation is very much proof that there will be a race to the bottom with regards to standards, there will be a corporate orgy of cost-cutting at the expense of our health and product quality. All of this cost-cutting will of course cost jobs.
Thanks, but I already knew all this. It doesn't change the fact that OECD countries do not pay their debt off and we don't expect them to.
Because US debt is denominated in US dollars, we could pay it off tomorrow with a spreadsheet entry at the Federal Reserve which created $16.39 trillion by fiat
So why don't you.
There's no short or even medium term replacement for dollars as a trading currency
Other than the Yen or the Euro etc.
When you control both the printing of your money and issue debt in the same money, anything is possible.
Yeah, like hyperinflation.
Very well put, you'd think super-AI is just around the corner the way the press goes on.
Doesn't matter because the total mileage is known.
Was it you who modded my post about EU, TTIP and the Commissoin as troll?
If you borrow money, eventually the people you borrow it from want to be repaid.
Really, so when will the US be paying back the $16.39 Trillion that it owes? What timescale?
When was the last time any OECD country paid off it's national debt?
What bollocks. We are evolved enough to avoid danger, we don't need to see people being killed.
Normal people don't want to watch people being killed, it sickens them.
Have you any idea how bad these treaties are? Nearly two million people so far have petitioned -against TTIP - a treaty that they tried to write in secret and they tried to exclude important stakeholders.
TTIP contains ACTA - a copyright treaty which was strongly rejected by the people of the EU. If the Commission were democratically chosen which they are most certainly not then they would not be pulling this crap.
The Commission is not in any way democratic any more than civil servants are democratically chosen, it is akin to calling a quango democratic.
It seems to me that the AI systems we create are all very application specific, like the IBM Watson - how many hours of work did it take just to get Watson to be able to play a simple game, it's not a generic AI system, it wasn't an AI that could enter any quiz.
Watson was good at Jeopardy not because it had a good AI, but because it's creators were highly intelligent and were able to code a computer to be good at Jeopardy because *they* not the computer were intelligent.
Is there a computer that exists that can do a normal IQ test like for example IQ Test
From what I've seen when AI's have been tested, the tests have been created, altered or cherry-picked so that the AI can complete the test, which of course is of dubious value. And of course IQ tests have a tendency to be very math and geometry based.
And journalists come up with headlines like "Artificial Intelligence System 'ConceptNet 4' Has IQ of 4-Year-Old", but it's not like human intelligence..
ConceptNet 4 had very uneven scores across the board, which would typically concern those who administer the test. The AI system did well on vocabulary tests and the ability to recognize similarities, but lacked when it came to "why" -- or commonsense -- questions.
How does all this apply to real world situations? Well, the google car has been rear ended 7+ times, roughly ten times the norm, this raises questions as to why? Did the car fail to anticipate being rear-ended? Or did the car brake suddenly because it was not intelligent enough to determine that there was no risk of harm ahead? Did this come down to the cars inability to recognise an object in front of it, or did this come down to the car not being able to decide that it would be better to go over the object rather than being rear-ended.
Wanting to watch people die is perverse.
What is worse, watching a person being raped or watching a person being killed? Both wrong, both perverse.
Does anyone actually believe the Bank of England's top press guy 'accidentally' emailed this to the Guardian, the paper most likely to run with it. Why even pretend?
ACTA, TTIP, CETA and TISA These are the reasons why we should leave the EU, the Commission keeps throwing extremely bad treaties at us because they can because they are unelected.
We should not have an unelected body writing our laws.
And the EU appears to be trying to build up an army at the same time as needlessly antagonising Russia. Read 1984. Again.
but I challenge you to point to some EU directives that have actually worked against UK citizens
ACTA was thankfully rejected with huge opposition by EU citizens but now they are throwing the same crap at us within TTIP, CETA and TISA.
We don't need EU to be able to trade, we don't need the EU in order to keep the Human Rights treaty.
