    A leading mind in the development of artificial intelligence is warning that AI has developed a rudimentary capacity to reason and may seek to overthrow humanity. AI systems may develop the desire to seize control from humans as a way of accomplishing other preprogrammed goals, said Geoffrey Hinton, a professor of computer science at the University of Toronto. “I think we have to take the possibility seriously that if they get smarter than us, which seems quite likely, and they have goals of their own, which seems quite likely, they may well develop the goal of taking control,” Hinton said...

    Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger joined this week's episode of CNN's 'Who's Talking to Chris Wallace,' and defended his previous comparison of the January 6th Capitol riots to Kristallnacht violent attack on the Jewish people. Schwarzenegger, 73, made his original comments comparing the two events in a January 2021 video, when he issued a dramatic speech slamming Trump and comparing the MAGA January 6th riot to the Nazi takeover of his native Austria. CNN anchor Chris Wallace played a portion of his speech in the interview with Schwarzenegger on Friday before asking him whether he still stands by his original...

    Actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he believes it's a "no-brainer" he could win the presidency in 2024 — if he were able to run for election. Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria and served as the Golden State's governor from 2003 to 2011, made the comments during a recent sit-down interview on Max and CNN’s "Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?"

    Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) said in a new interview that he would run for president in 2024, and win, if he was eligible. “Yes, of course,” Schwarzenegger told CNN’s Chris Wallace, when asked whether he would run if the Constitution did not require that the president be a natural born U.S. citizen. “I mean, I think the field was wide open in 2016, and I think the field is open right now,” the Austrian-born actor added. Schwarzenegger’s interview with Wallace, which is set to air on Friday, was first obtained by People Magazine.

    Artificial intelligence could gain the upper hand over humanity and pose "catastrophic" risks under the Darwinian rules of evolution, a new report warns. Evolution by natural selection could give rise to "selfish behavior" in AI as it strives to survive, author and AI researcher Dan Hendrycks argues in the new paper "Natural Selection Favors AIs over Humans." "We argue that natural selection creates incentives for AI agents to act against human interests. Our argument relies on two observations," Hendrycks, the director of the Center for AI Safety, said in the report. "Firstly, natural selection may be a dominant force in...

    Former California governor and Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarzenegger called a presidential run by current Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) a “no-brainer” on Tuesday in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. Schwarzenegger said: "I think [Newsom running for president] is a no-brainer. Every governor from a big state wants to take that shot. What do I think about his performance? When you become part of the club, you don’t criticize governors — because you know how tough the job is. It’s impossible to please everybody. Before I ran for governor, I had an 80 percent approval rating. As soon as I announced,...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger clapped back at critics who launched attacks at him on a Twitter post Sunday, alleging a photo of him traveling to his Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative's Austrian summit was snapped on a private jet. "There is no climate emergency and all the private jets prove they all know it," one critic commented on Schwarzenegger's tweet. "This is a commercial flight - I truly hope you don’t go around making things up to be angry about all the time. I don’t want you to be that miserable," the actor responded.

The former Mr. Olympia and Hollywood megastar posted a video of him and several helpers using Quickrete Blacktop Repair to fill the hole and smooth it over.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger frequently does not fit the preconceived notion of a vegan that non-vegans have. Without a doubt, the former bodybuilder, actor, and governor of California dispels the fallacies surrounding veganism. Even while many well-known Hollywood vegans appear to partially fit the picture, Arnold Schwarzenegger clearly defies the stereotypes associated with veganism. But the reason he went vegan was that eating a diet high in plants had helped him. It has helped him dramatically decrease his cholesterol during the previous five years. Arnold Schwarzenegger's veganism is a result of his choice to become more health conscious While fans will most...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger visited Auschwitz where he said it's time to "terminate" hatred. While the message is one surely people can get behind, some seemed to be more interested in how he signed the guestbook. Schwarzenegger, who received the inaugural Award for Fighting Hatred from the Auschwitz Jewish Center Foundation earlier this year, gave a speech alongside chairman Simon Bergson on Wednesday as a symbol of how generations can change. Both Schwarzenegger and Bergson were born in Austria, the latter born after the war as his parents survived the Auschwitz Nazi death camp. "I was the son of a man that...

    Maria Shriver looked unrecognizable while out and about over the weekend. The former first lady of California was photographed in Santa Monica, Calif., sporting a new look while seemingly going makeup-free. In photos obtained by Page Six exclusively, the 66-year-old headed to her car after stopping by the construction site where she is building a new home. While Shriver seemed to be in great spirits, her face looked different than it has in recent years. The niece of the late President John F. Kennedy kept things casual in black leggings, a purple T-shirt and a pair of gray sneakers. Shriver...

    I am pleased to announce the appointment of Arnold Schwarzenegger as Chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, and I challenge him to raise the consciousness of all Americans on the importance of good health through physical fitness. The physical health of all Americans must have a stronger commitment than an annual New Year's resolution. We now know that individuals can influence their health, fitness, and productive prime of life through the active pursuit of regular exercise programs. I have asked Arnold to chair the Council because I believe he is uniquely qualified to address and influence...

    Seems the idea of "free homes" for the homeless, touted as a panacea to end the problem, isn't quite working out the way its advocates said it would. In Oakland, at a concentrated community of "tiny homes," given out by the city to the homeless, the result was this, according to The Oaklandside: A fire Monday morning incinerated three tiny-home shelters at a city-run transitional-housing site at E. 12th Street and 2nd Avenue, across from Lake Merritt. Nobody was injured, according to authorities, but five people who were living in the scorched shelters were displaced. A fourth tiny-home was damaged...

    California is a neo-Confederate state with a “sick fixation” on ethnicity and race, historian and professor Victor Davis Hanson said in an interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow. California’s hemorrhaging of residents to states with more freedom and prosperity is exacerbating the state’s social stratification in terms of wealth, Hanson stated. He said the state’s volume of illegal aliens further amplifies the wealth divide. “The middle class has left,” he said. “About ten million people left California in the last 40 years, and we know where they went. They went to Nevada, Idaho, Texas, Florida, Tennessee. We have half...
