    In his latest Forbes column, Radical Ventures Partner Rob Toews published his predictions for AI in 2023. Next year, Rob is anticipating GPT-4’s release, the normalization of self-driving, humanoid robot development, and a revolution in search. In his 2022 predictions retrospective, there were some misses and significant hits including the dominance of language AI and Toronto establishing itself as the most important AI hub in the world outside of Silicon Valley and China.Here are the highlights of Rob’s 10 AI for 2023: 1) GPT-4 will be released in the next couple months—and yes, it will be a big deal. “Expect...
  • Signal in the sewer: How wastewater helps scientists detect early increases in COVID-19, the flu and more

    PCR and rapid tests aren't the only places where evidence of SARS-COV-2, commonly known as COVID-19, shows up. The virus that causes COVID-19 also turns up in a city's wastewater. Because of that, wastewater has become a powerful tool to give scientists early glimpses into when infections are peaking. "Wastewater actually tells us a really great story," said Amanda Wegner, communications and public affairs director at the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District. "What we've learned with viruses is that people shed the virus. When they use the bathroom, that enters the wastewater stream." According to the Centers for Disease Control and...

    One of the few advantages that come with age – and believe me, there aren’t many – is that one can look back at all the predictions made by futurists that turned out to be wrong. I am still waiting to travel in my flying car or by jet pack. Unless I missed the news, we still have not colonized the moon or Mars. And those colonies at the bottom of the ocean have yet to materialize. One area where it seems that seems particularly wrought with inaccurate predictions is climate. In the 1960s we were all going to die...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/17/2023 | Thomas Lifson
    One of the more delightful aspects of being a dissident from the absurd apocalyptic climate doom cult is the ability to laugh at the decades’ worth of failed, yet quite specific predictions of disaster from purported “experts” that the media has gleefully trumpeted. The track record of the failure of previous predictions matters not in the least, as if mass amnesia has infected not just the media, but government, academia, and the corporate world. Yet, all of these commanding heights of our political economy are united in pushing forward with ruinously expensive schemes that cannot work to substitute unreliable intermittent...

    Ah, the annual predictions piece, the conservative scribbler’s best friend and perennial go-to column, the easiest topic outside fake Indians, perverted presidents, and the gnarly predilections of creepy Never Trump weirdos.First, let me review how crappy I did last year in a Stream of Kurtiousness video listing my predictions. I thought the Dems would run away from COVID insanity. They kind of walked away, but a lot of sissy Dems are still yearning for public health serfdom. I was sort of right.I recommended that we make it harder for stupid people to vote. That did not happen. In 2022, stupid...

    Buckingham Palace ablaze Nostradamus predicted 2K23 will see “Celestial fire on the royal edifice.” Taken literally, this could mean a meteor is headed straight for Buckingham Palace, burning down the house if you will. On a more metaphorical tip, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who recently released a “bombshell” Netflix series detailing the dark deeds committed against them by the crown, have taken aim with a different kind of fire power, lighting up and tearing down the reputation of the royal family as we know it.

  • EUROPE ECONOMY: Meat bans, soaring gold prices and ‘un-Brexit’? One bank’s ‘outrageous’ predictions for 2023

    Saxo Bank’s “outrageous predictions” for 2023 include a ban on meat production, skyrocketing gold prices and Britain voting to “un-Brexit.” The Danish bank’s annual report, published earlier this month, expects global economies to shift into “war economy” mode, “where sovereign economic gains and self-reliance trump globalisation.” The forecasts, while not representative of the bank’s official views, looked at how decisions from policymakers next year could impact both the global economy and the political agenda.

    By Dario Perkins, chief strategist of TS LombardThings That Won't Happen In 2023A light-hearted take on 2023, with big consensus-busting “non-forecasts”Such as Powell takes his Volcker obsession too far; BoE needs a bailout……CBDCs realize the conspiracy theorists’ nightmare; Brexit, what Brexit?Since we first published our annual “Things that won’t happen” outlook in 2015, writing outlandish non-forecasts has become considerably more difficult. Back then, nobody would have taken us seriously if we had said Donald Trump would become US president or the UK would quit the EU or there would be a two-year pandemic with rolling global lockdowns. And the surprises...

    Investing Daily via Motley Fool ^ | 12/20/2022 | John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, Matthew Frankel, CFP
    2022 was the worst year for the stock market since the financial crisis, fueled by a combination of rising interest rates, economic worries, war in Ukraine, inflation, and other factors. As of Dec. 20, the S&P 500 was down by more than 19% for the year. However, with the year coming to a close, what should we expect for next year? While nobody has a crystal ball, here are a couple of my predictions for the stock market in 2023 and why I believe each one is likely. 1. The stock market will have an excellent year My bold prediction...

    End of The American Dream ^ | 12/13/22 | Michael Snyder
    Will 2023 be a year when extremely destructive conflicts erupt all over the world? We are certainly already living in a time of “wars and rumors of wars”, and tensions are approaching the boiling point in a number of key global flashpoints right now. If several more major conflicts were to suddenly begin next year, we could potentially witness an extended period of geopolitical instability that would be unlike anything that we have ever witnessed. It is easy to start wars, but it is much harder to end them. If you doubt this, just look at what is going on...

    Answer: nope. Even if it might be accurate this time. Which it might be … or may not.The BEA will publish the consumer price index report for November tomorrow morning. Economists expect it to drop, as did the producer price index in last Friday’s report. But they’ve expected it to drop significantly all year, and yet here we are:At this time last year, economists were predicting that inflation would swiftly fade in 2022 as supply chain issues cleared, consumers shifted from goods to services spending and pandemic relief waned. They are now forecasting the same thing for 2023, citing many...

Well, now everyone is talking about a massive wave, where even Soccer Moms in suburbia are breaking heavy for Republicans. (an old saying, the most dangerous place to be is between a mother and her child) Well today I believe we will win even bigger than I did 2 weeks ago. Dare I claim we could actually win 100 House seats, and possibly win 10 Senate seats? Could happen if Chuck Schumer is really in...

    Billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones has warned that the U.S. economy is likely headed for a recession, but he says the market could rally depending on how Russia's war in Ukraine plays out. "We have a dictator who's losing and typically that doesn't end well," Jones said Monday on CNBC's "Squawk Box." "Typically, that's going to end with a violent death and the question is who is he going to take with that?" What To Know: Jones has suggested the war in Ukraine will end with the death of Russian President Vladimir Putin. He told CNBC that what...

    The book also claims that King Charles III will abdicate and Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, will become the next monarch, instead of his brother William, the new Prince of Wales Nostradamus, the 16th-century French seer and astrologer, has been famous for his predictions. He has been credited with making accurate prophecies of the rise of Hitler, the 9/11 attacks and the wars in Europe. Now, following Queen Elizabeth II’s demise, the name of the French astrologer is surfacing again in UK, as it is being said that Nostradamus predicted the exact year of the monarch’s death in cryptic...
  • Hurricane possibly hitting Florida's panhandle on September 30.

    The NOAA GFS model is showing a hurricane moving north through the Gulf and making landfall on the western Florida panhandle on September 30. The 12Z 09/20 run had it approaching Apalachicola, while the 18Z run has it making landfall at or near Pensacola. I suspect future model updates will continue to have the hurricane tracking further and further west. JMO.

This week, Cook shifted 12 race predictions in total — ten races in favor of Republicans and two races in favor of Democrats — while there are now 35 seats overall across the county that are considered to be “toss-up” or worse for the incumbent.

    The clear winners in inflation are those who require little from global supply chains, the frugal, and those who own their own labor, skills and enterprises. As the case for systemic inflation builds, the question arises: who wins and who loses in an up-cycle of inflation? The general view is that inflation is bad for almost everyone, but this ignores the big winners in an inflationary cycle. As I’ve explained here and in my new book Global Crisis, National Renewal, the two primary dynamics globally are 1) scarcity of essentials and 2) extremes of wealth/power inequality. Scarcities drive prices higher...
