I once got hired by an Ohio State PhD who said that if I was smart enough to drop out of MIT I was smart enough to work for him.
With luck this will end the vampire book and movie genre as we know it. Expect kinder and gentler vampires from now on. -SG
Indeed this is very old news. My 30 year old daughter is a type 1 diabetic. It was well known 25 years ago that coxsackie viruses are associated with type 1 diabetes. Specifically coxsackie viruse 23b if memory serves me correctly. It's called baby measles and all kids get it. Get one version of coxsackie and it's believed that you are immune from the rest. At least that was the state of diabetes research 25 years ago.
In other words: If a foo shits in the woods and there is no one there to smell it, it didn't happen.
If you calculate the Schwarzschild radius of the suspected mass of the universe you get a radius that's roughly 7 billion light years which says that we are indeed inside a black hole. Now will someone explain to me how the big bang worked again?
Yet the system failed to detect Snowden. I'm guessing that they have the problem of having way too much information and little ability to analyze it. When you think about it they have missed quite a lot in the past few years.
I'm proud of my daughter who has the gumption to leave the US with no intention of returning. I'm proud of my sister and her kids who walked into the consulate in Alberta Canada and renounced their American Citizenship.
Reminds me of a confused Brit who was asked when he applied for US Citizenship 50 years ago, "Do you advocate the overthrow of the US government by force or violence?" He thought for a moment then answered, "Violence I suppose."
It's time for a second American Revolution.
If I remember correctly, Nixon made the Social Security Administration invest in U.S. government securities then deducted the difference from the National Debt making it appear smaller than it was. Hyper inflation is the only way out of this problem historically.
... and when they cornered the bad guy did they yell, "Come out with your hands up?" No they shot 400 bullets into the boat the kid was hiding in and still managed not to kill him. Lots of people praise the police for their actions but all I see is lots and lots of gross incompetence.
I have to admit I am impressed. Using Google Docs as an infection vector is ingenious. Why would anyone want to work out of "the cloud."
The article says"why are we getting better at abstract reasoning and little else?" Well what is intelligence? Isn't it simply "abstract reasoning and little else??

Eventually we'll learn that ALL the components were made in China.
It is a bad patent. It's obvious! If a gadget(GPS, Loran,sextent, radar) gives me a location (coordinates) I (or some machine) looks up what's around me (on a map, Rutter, or database). The fact that at it's on a phone is really irrelevant. This is exactly the kind of patent that should have been thrown out initially.
I wonder what the Teamsters have to say.
