    Two 20-year-old college juniors, who have been best friends since middle school, are believed to have become the youngest black Republicans to ever be elected to public office in Connecticut. Ed Ford Jr. and Tyrell Brown both become passionate about politics at a young age, and served as president and vice-president of student government during their senior year of high school. In Tuesday’s elections, they each won a seat in public office, with Ford winning a spot on the Middletown school board, where he attended school, and Brown being elected to the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission, WTNH News8 reports....

    The idea of machine learning becoming smarter than the human brain is often referred to as the "singularity." When exactly this will happen is oft-debated among the tech community. "Singularity is the concept that [mankind's] brain will be surpassed, this is the tipping point, crossing point, that artificial intelligence, computer intelligence surpass [mankind's] brain and that is happening in this century for sure. I would say there is no more debate, no more doubt," Son says. Son is particularly aggressive in his prediction of how soon the singularity will happen — in the "next 30 years or so," he says....
  • CNBCs own 'Dr. Doom' Faber: 'Thank God white people populated America'

    CNBC ^ | Jeff Cox | @JeffCoxCNBCcom
    Market doomsayer Marc "Dr. Doom" Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people. The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country. (A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.) "And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look...

    A pair of pensioners caused chaos and destruction during a late night naked rampage at a luxury Perthshire hotel. Staff at the hotel were so scared of the elderly couple they fled for their lives and ran two miles on foot to the safety of the nearest village. The MacDonald Rannoch hotel in Perth. Retired chartered surveyor Robert Fergus, 72, was completely naked as he ran amok with a pair of scissors in the public reception of the MacDonald Loch Rannoch Hotel. His 69-year-old wife Ruth was sporting just a nightie as she threatened to gun down staff members as...

    "This is such a dark place."The irony stopped me in my tracks. The speaker was Jonas Kouassi-Zessia, an African émigré to Europe who had planted a church there.In the 19th and 20th centuries Europe – and America – was sending missionaries to Africa. Europeans and Americans referred to Africa as the "Dark Continent." Now, in the eyes of an African Christian leader, it was Europe shrouded in darkness.I recently spent two weeks with Pastor Kouassi-Zessia in Copenhagen, and with his counterparts in Paris. I was there to conduct "Globequake" conferences, focusing on helping churches stay steady and minister effectively in...

    Controversy as Oregon couple are forced to give up their children to social services after they were deemed 'not intelligent enough' to care for the babies. Amy Fabbrini, 31, and Eric Ziegler, 38, had both of their children taken into foster care, the youngest right after he was born in the hospital. After taking a required IQ test, Ziegler scored a meager 66 and Fabbrini a 72. The IQ of the average person ranges anywhere from 90-110. Domestic abuse and neglect were not factors in the custody case, but didn't need to be, according to a report. Fabbrini and Ziegler...
  • White Nationalist Calls Trump’s Denouncement Of Hate Groups ‘Kumbaya Nonsense’

    The Huffington Post ^ | August 14, 2017 | Dana Liebelson
    ALEXANDRIA, Va. ― Richard Spencer, the 39-year-old white nationalist leader, said Monday that he did not take President Donald Trump’s statement denouncing hate groups seriously, and two of Spencer’s associates shared a somewhat similar sentiment with HuffPost. “The statement today was more Kumbaya nonsense,” Spencer said, speaking to reporters in his office and part-time home in Alexandria, Virginia. “He sounded like a Sunday school teacher. I just don’t take him seriously ... it sounded so hollow and vapid.” Trump’s statement Monday was technically his most direct denunciation of white supremacy in the wake of violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, over...
  • Upper Palaeolithic engraved human bone associated with ritualistic cannibalism UK

    Abstract Cut-marked and broken human bones are a recurrent feature of Magdalenian (~17–12,000 years BP, uncalibrated dates) European sites. Human remains at Gough’s Cave (UK) have been modified as part of a Magdalenian mortuary ritual that combined the intensive processing of entire corpses to extract edible tissues and the modification of skulls to produce skull-cups. A human radius from Gough’s Cave shows evidence of cut marks, percussion damage and human tooth marks, indicative of cannibalism, as well as a set of unusual zig-zagging incisions on the lateral side of the diaphysis. These latter incisions cannot be unambiguously associated with filleting...

    Two of President Trump’s most ardent supporters, the YouTube stars known as Diamond and Silk, say a financial stranglehold has been placed on their videos. Lynnette Hardway and Rochelle Richardson of North Carolina, whose support of Mr. Trump and no-nonsense delivery during the 2016 U.S. presidential season turned them into online sensations, said Thursday their YouTube videos have become casualties of the company’s attempt to silence “extremism.”“@YouTube @TeamYouTube stopped over 95% percent of our videos from being monetized, stating: ‘It’s Not Suitable For All Advertisers,’” the two said in a series of tweets. “Wonder if @YouTube @TeamYouTube stopped the monetization...

    Former "Good Times" star Jimmie Walker is supporting President Trump. At least most of the time, said the veteran comedian, who considers himself "a logical Independent." Of Trump he said, "I'm for probably 90 percent of the things he does." He clarified, "That means I'm not against Trump, but he makes mistakes, too." Walker, who shot to fame with his "Good Times" sitcom catch phrase "Dynomite!" in the 1970s, said he differs greatly from his fellow Hollywood comedians when it comes to politics. “There's not one positive Trump joke out here,” he explained. “No President has been attacked in recent...

    This is the moment a group of women were forced off a plane for rowdy behaviour - much to the relief of the other passengers. The women, who were part of a hen party, had reportedly been drinking alcohol, screaming and swearing during the FR9898 Ryanair flight from Liverpool to Alicante on Thursday night. In the video, which was uploaded by Josh Daley, a group of women are seen arguing with staff in the aisle of the plane, as another shouts: 'Sit down, sit down!'

    The National Review ^ | July 5, 2017 | Robert VerBruggen
    There are good reasons not to confine the discussion to academic journals. In the latest issue of National Review, John McWhorter has a challenging and thought-provoking essay about the topic of race and IQ — specifically, about whether that topic should even be up for discussion in liberal-arts classrooms and in the media, as opposed to in scientific journals. He suggests not, as there is nothing to gain from discussing it. I read McWhorter’s essay with special interest because I have violated the norm he proposes. I have written about race and IQ on numerous occasions — and for a...

    Asset forfeiture "has led to egregious and well-chronicled abuses."In March the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case filed by a Texas woman fighting for the return of over $200,000 in cash that the police seized from her family. Although neither Lisa Olivia Leonard nor any of her relatives were ever charged with any underlying crime connected to the cash, the state's sweeping asset forfeiture laws allowed the authorities to take the money. The Supreme Court offered no explanation when it refused to hear Leonard v. Texas. But one member of the Court did speak up in protest. In...
