  • Glenn Beck: Fooled by Facebook?

    Mr. Beck. You found Zuck and Company cordial--they just find you useful In the wake of reports that Facebook censors conservative voices, media figure Glenn Beck met with company chairman Mark Zuckerberg and emerged from the meeting, as he put it, “convinced that Facebook is behaving appropriately and trying to do the right thing.” Nothing to see here, move along. Unfortunately, this is nonsense. Beck admits in his article on this subject, “I am not an expert on data or AI or algorithms.” Neither am I. But the Facebook censorship in the news isn’t about artificial intelligence but human intelligence—and...

    I hope this does not qualify as Opus that gets me banned. My wife purchased a Lenovo Yoga II tablet along with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse for me as a replacement for an older Samsung galaxy tablet and Acer Aspire laptop because she wanted me to be able to travel with les stuff. The hope was that it would replace two devices (Laptop and Tablet) with one device.

    Half of the European Union's member states on Monday called for the removal of barriers to the free flow of data both within and outside the 28-nation bloc to ensure the continent can benefit from new data-driven technologies. In a letter to the European Commission and the Netherlands - which holds the rotating EU presidency - ministers from countries including Poland, Britain, Sweden and Finland urged Brussels to make sure regulation is not a barrier to the development of data-driven technologies and to avoid one-size-fits-all rules for online platforms such as Amazon and Facebook.

It has yet to fulfill this latter goal, but a bit of news announced today indicates that WASP is making moves in the right direction. Together with Siam Cement Group (SCG) and architect Pitupong...

    While social media sites are new in some respects, in the important area of objectivity, they tend to project the same liberal bias as the old media Everyone knows that liberals control the old media outlets that are rapidly becoming irrelevant. The national print publications and broadcast television networks have historically tilted to the left. In fact, this week, it was no surprise to learn that the Washington Post will assign 20 reporters to investigate every aspect of Donald Trump’s background, hoping to find salacious dirt on the GOP front runner.

    Rules are for the little people, why are Justice Department prosecutors trying to shut down FBI investigators The news here is not that Hillary crony Cheryl Mills walked out of her FBI interview and cited a legal technicality to try to avoid answering questions. Of course she did that. It’s what Hillary cronies do. The news, rather - and it’s not good news - is that there is apparently tension between FBI investigators and Justice Department prosecutors on just how doggedly to pursue the evidence in the case:

    Oh, and he just might release the full report if Obama tries to protect her. Maybe the Republicans should have nominated James Comey. The FBI director (who was a Bush appointee, after all) doesn’t mess around, and he’s not letting Hillary get away with turning the investigation into her e-mail shenanigans into something it isn’t.

    Will a Justice Department -- whose employees think she's a rock star -- take Hillary's possible prosecution seriously? Employees of the U.S. Department of Justice have given so much money to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign this time around that critics justifiably doubt the agency can handle her private email server case fairly and impartially. In what appears to be a super-sized potential conflict of interest, Clinton, a pathological, self-serving liar who doesn’t mind if Americans die to further her political ambitions, has accepted almost $75,000 in campaign contributions in the current election cycle from employees at the Justice Department, the...

Researchers at MIT and Harvard this week published a paper finding that students taking online edX coursework were able to game the system by logging on as one person to check out online tests, scout out the right answers, and then log in again as themselves to take the test.

    Over the course of the Democratic presidential primary, Hillary Clinton’s principal argument against Bernie Sanders has been that his agenda — universal health care, free college tuition, et al. — is impractical, too utopian, too “pie in the sky.” This is especially true, she says, given the structural obstacles in the way. Sanders is promising to do the impossible; she, on the other hand, is the candidate who can Get Things Done. In other news, the Clinton campaign is planning to spend a lot of money in an effort to finally “correct” the internet. OK, then! As The Daily Beast’s...

    Senator Chuck Grassley says the worst development during his 40-year career in congress has been “more partisanship,” but Grassley says that’s also one of the best things — because it is better defining “who’s a Republican and who’s a Democrat.” “I think it’s clearer to the American people what the Republican Party stands for and the Democratic Party stands for,” Grassley says. The presence of “moderate” Republicans and Democrats in congress “blurred” things for voters, according to Grassley. “And that makes it more fuzzy for the people at the grassroots,” Grassley says. But Grassley says the higher level of partisanship...

    Although 3D printing is a relatively new technology within the military-industrial complex, it has impacted Israel’s aerospace developments in a great number of ways. Last year, the Israeli military had 3D printed their own drone components, and even started a consortium with the government to focus on 3D printing with titanium. Now, the Israeli Air Force’s Aerial Maintenance Unit (AMU) is utilizing 3D printing technology to help repair their aged and worn down fleet of F-15 fighter jets, which were acquired by the IAF in 1980, and have been used in various missions ever since. The F-15 aircraft has provided...

    A study released by Security Scorecard found that all levels of government had a worse record of cyber security than major business firms. In measures of vulnerability to malware and security breaches, federal, state, and local governments ranked at the bottom. Education, telecommunications and pharmaceutical industries were almost as bad. Information services, construction, food and technology were the best. Of the 600 government entities tracked, NASA performed the worst. Other low-performing government organizations included the U.S. Department of State. This latter revelation was jumped on by the Hillary Clinton for President campaign as "a total vindication of Secretary Clinton's decision...

While Trump claimed the Colorado outcome was “rigged” and “totally unfair,” his campaign is simply no longer winning all aspects of the race. Prediction markets are reacting to this latest hiccup for the Trump campaign. As the possibility of a contested convention in July looks more and more likely, Trump’s numbers have dipped. Prediction markets are where people bet on the possibilities of certain outcomes in politics, sports...

This is the work of [Andrey Rudenko], who started by building a concrete 3D printer in his garage 2 years ago, moved on to 3D printing his kids a concrete castle in his backyard later that year and now appears to have a full-blown company offering commercial 3D printed houses. Way to go [Andrey]! The building was designed in Sketchup no less, and the printer makes use of Pronterface for the...

    He would read Hillary's memos . . . and then do the gardening. First the FBI gave immunity to the guy who installed Hillary’s schlock, homebrew e-mail server - the one so non-secure that a guy from Romania was able to easily hack into it and read Hillary’s memos. Now they’re bringing the Romanian guy (who goes by the name of Guccifer for some reason) over to the U.S. You don’t think the FBI is doing all this just to whitewash the case, do you? I don’t: According to the 15-page federal indictment, Lazar “specialized in gaining unauthorized access to...

    Obama doesn't have to speak directly to Loretta Lynch to make sure she knows What I’ve embedded here is Obama’s entire 15-minute interview with Chris Wallace from Sunday, which covers a lot of other topics, including Obama’s attitude toward terrorism and the status of the Merrick Garland nomination. The Hillary e-mail part doesn’t start until around the 10-minute mark, This is where Obama insists - and leaves no room for ambiguity - that he never talks to the DOJ or the FBI about criminal investigations and never tells them what to do, because no one is above the law. Now...
  • Matt Drudge not the problem, Senator Cruz

    Matt Drudge has the stones to fight Hillary Clinton. Where are Ted Cruz and Donald Trump in the battle that matters most? Rather than coming out on the attack against Matt Drudge, Senator Ted Cruz should endeavor to be more like him. Conservative to the core, feisty at heart and relentlessly independent. That’s Matt Drudge, and that’s why untold millions go daily to the Drudge Report. “I need no traffic from Google. I don’t care if I get one traffic referral from Google or Bing or Yahoo or any of these others… Everybody’s so hungry for referrals, for likes. I...

    Okay people. You all know that this year is the 100th anniversary of the Cubs' first season in Wrigley Field. You also know that as of last year the national version of WGN no longer carries Cubs games. The Chicago station does, but the "superstation" apparently makes more money showing episode after episode after episode of a show called "Bluebloods" (which I know absolutely nothing about) than it does showing the Cubbies. So I looked up the radio station that currently carries the games and found it online. Well guess what? At game time I get the very beginning but...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz isn't stealing the GOP presidential nomination away from Donald Trump as the front-runner says, but is only working the system better, political analyst Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV. "What's going on really is that Trump is a guy who intuitively understood stuff that no other politician did, and he invented a style of campaigning that will live long after him," Morris told "Dennis Michael Lynch: Unfiltered.""This was a watershed year in that he brought a whole new method of incorporating social media and rallies and all of that stuff. It was brilliant," Morris said. "Of course,...

    Singularity Hub ^ | April 10, 2016It might be time to rethink fertility treatment. | Shelly Fan
    It might be time to rethink fertility treatment. Here’s the scoop: scientists at Northwestern University 3D printed a functional ovary out of Jello-like material and living cells. When implanted into mice that had their ovaries removed, the moms regained their monthly cycle and gave birth to healthy pups. The scientists presented their results last week at the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting in Boston. Although the study was done in mice, “we developed this implant with downstream human applications in mind,” says lead author Dr. Monica Laronda in a press release. If successful in humans, the prosthetic would be able to...

    My Sony Vaio laptop came with Windows 7 preloaded and no physical disks. I read that there was supposed to be a recovery partition on the hard drive and figured that would be all I needed. To this point, I never had to use it. I do regular backups of my data (documents, music,etc) to an external HD. Yesterday, I was looking at Task Manager and saw a bunch of processes running. I looked at the descriptions of what they were supposed to do and stopped a bunch I thought I did not need. Computer continued to run fine. Long...

    “We’re at war,” the video began. “No one wants to admit it, but humanity is under attack.” The narration continued, delivered over swelling music and video of protests and gunfire: “One very specific man might be all that stands between humanity and the greatest threat of our brief existence.” The man being offered as the savior of a doomed world is Donald J. Trump. And on Monday Mr. Trump shared the video with the millions of people who follow him on Twitter and Facebook as he tries to secure the Republican nomination for president. But the original version of the...

    That Facebook is made up of employees which, just like the rest of society, represent America at large is something which can't be denied. To me, per media coverage afforded Zuckerberg in blanketing those who disagree with the tagline Black Lives Matter, the assumption is being made that Mark is either in the majority viewpoint or that Facebook's staff exists in a vacuum. Both assertions couldn't be further from the truth. Hence why publicly available data, which has been widely distributed online, is critical in establishing the argument that these workers weren't "fringe" activists in any way. Judging by polling...
  • Glenn Beck on #NeverTrump: I wouldn’t vote for a Trump/Cruz ticket — or a Cruz/Trump ticket

    Consider this a follow-up to Wednesday night’s post quoting Mark Levin criticizing #NeverTrumpers for wanting to hand the election to Hillary by abandoning Trump in November. Is that an attitude that’ll be universally shared in conservative media or will there be big-name holdouts? Today we get the answer. Stu Burguiere, Beck’s head writer (and the other man in the clip below), tweeted this last night, seemingly in reply to Pat Buchanan claiming that a Trump/Cruz ticket would set the country on fire:(TWEET-AT-LINK) Burguiere put that idea to Beck on this morning’s radio show. Would Trump/Cruz be acceptable? Would Cruz/Trump be...
