Maybe Ricky and GOP-TP clergy would like some school prayers before meals and classes. Can we get an AMEN for Texas and US. Education with dogma and mythology is all any Texan needs to learn. Why not just cut Texas tax-dollars from the education budget until Texas-clergy and Lord Ricky gets some religious respect and compliance.

Clergy biased government, courts, plutocrats ... rule US all.

Submitted by lfp98
lfp98 (740073) writes "President Bill Powers has long been in conflict with Governor Rick Perry over the direction and goals of the University of Texas' flagship Austin campus. This week, news leaked that the Chancellor requested Powers' resignation before this Thursday's meeting of the Regents (who are all Perry appointees), under threat of being fired at that meeting if he did not resign. So far Powers has refused, while expressing an openness to leaving after the end of the current academic year []. Powers is highly regarded by UT students, faculty, alumni [] and the larger academic community, but has been criticized by Perry and other conservatives for not being sufficiently focused on providing educational services at the lowest possible cost. Powers' supporters view the forced dismissal as brazen political interference with University governance, primarily for the purpose of allowing Perry to influence the choice of a new president before he leaves office in December []."

Comment: Another rather parochial view of the future. (Score 1) 551

Louis Del Monte is rather parochial in estimates that machine intelligence will exceed the world's combined human intelligence by 2045. "Most of the human race will have become cyborgs by the end of this century, is a probability. The allure will be evolution, because “immortality” is demigod hubris and delusion, because all demigods are mortal. Human-machines (cyborgs) will make breakthroughs in science (theoretical) and engineering (applied), most of the human race “MIGHT” have more leisure time, be enslaved a/o dead, and a few or all will have it better. The concern, I'm raising is that cyborgs are human-machines, but silly legacy science-fiction has cyborgs as the future Frankenstein’s monsters unpredictable and dangerous. "Human-machines (cyborgs) are self-conscious and have the capabilities to protect themselves and protect, love, help ... others and evolution. The cyborgs IMO will view us/others in the same way any human does, very naturally. "Humans/Cyborgs are synergistic species that can save the world twice over, and make us humans far better." Appealing roommates to me consider unknowns essential sustenance for synergy and evolution of intelligent species. Fear is a four letter word that is actually obscene to humans/cyborgs.

Goldman Sachs core business data/info ..., looks like they don't own a/o act responsible for the data. Goldman Sachs should be fined for the core-business data breach by their contractor, and rehab their core-business model. Goldman Sachs has become just another brand-name that contracts out their core-business requirements ... much like many others in the .Gov, .Mil, .Com domains. They are in name only an institution without actual substance. IMO

Elon Musk wants more quick refuel infrastructure on the interstates and local roads/cities, which will advance Tesla's and others electric cars. This is not controversial but does provide probable wider support for Tesla's collection of electric car products, patents, and parts. Open up the designs for Tesla Supercharger systems — the free fast-charging stations designed to quickly refuel electric cars — creating an ISO/OASIS standard for other car makers to use makes prescient business sense.
