What the SpaceX Success Means for the Moon, Mars, and More

On February 6, 2018, the SpaceX Falcon Heavy took flight, demonstrating a capacity to lift 60 tons to low Earth orbit while playfully sending a Tesla Roadster on a trajectory that will take it beyond the orbit of Mars. To add to the coup, two of the Falcon’s three booster stages flew back to land gracefully together at the Cape, while the third barely missed pulling off a recovery landing on a drone ship stationed downrange. Elon Musk, my favorite African-American. To understand how extraordinary this accomplishment was, let us recall that in 2009, the Obama administration’s blue-ribbon review committee headed former Lockheed Martin CEO Norm Augustine declared that NASA's ...

Falcon Heavy launch: Space X has an almost perfect day

You’ve probably seen some clips of the Space X launch that took place today already but if not you really did miss something pretty spectacular. The launch was successful though it appears one of the three boosters did not land itself properly. Still, the image of the two boosters landing themselves simultaneously on adjacent landing pads seemed unreal. And then on top of that, there was the cargo for this test launch: Elon Musk’s own Tesla Roadster with “Spaceman” at the wheel (actually Space X’s own space suit design). From Space.com: Standing 23 stories tall, the Falcon Heavy rocket is SpaceX’s largest rocket yet and the most powerful booster since ...

Amazon Patents Ultrasonic Tracking Wristbands To Control Workers

Amazon Patents Ultrasonic Tracking Wristbands To Control Workers Amazon is seeking to boost worker efficiency through a new set of patents squarely aimed at improving its inventory management system using radio frequency based tracking of a worker’s hand to monitor their performance of inventory tasks. Of course, the only thing more troubling than robots replacing human workers is the idea of robots tracking human workers’ hands, but i) there are profit margins to be optimized and ii) this is the same concept of being under house arrest with an ankle bracelet, it just happens that Amazon wants to put the device on the worker’s wrist.

Fortresses, farmlands of the Maya emerge from massive LiDAR survey
Post Date: 2018-02-02 18:45:44 by Tooconservative

Huge sprawl of the civilization emerges from beneath the foliage. A recent aerial survey revealed thousands of ancient Maya structures previously hidden beneath the dense Guatemalan jungle, including houses, irrigation canals, fortifications, and even a pyramid. More importantly, though, the survey of 2,000 square kilometers of northeastern Guatemala provides a bird’s-eye view of the landscape of ancient Maya cities, farms, and highways. That big picture view of the Maya is letting archaeologists ask bigger questions about this still-enigmatic civilization. A sense of mystery still surrounds the Maya, mostly because so much of their once powerful and sophisticated society now lies ...

As the Chinese government develops drones, the American technology giant Qualcomm is helping. The same goes for artificial intelligence, mobile technology and supercomputers. Qualcomm is also working to help Chinese companies like Huawei break into overseas markets in support of China’s “go global” campaign to develop big multinational brands. Qualcomm is providing money, expertise and engineering for Beijing’s master plan to create its own technology superpowers. Big American companies fiercely protect their intellectual property and trade secrets, fearful of giving an edge to rivals. But they have little choice in China — and Washington is looking on with ...

50 Top Conservative Websites [Full Thread]

Ranking websites is an inexact science. There are multiple ways to measure success, including pageviews, users, unique site visitors and, perhaps most important, influence. To create this list of the top conservative sites, PJ Media looked at a variety of sources that rank them and determined the average score for each center-right site. Alexa, SimilarWeb, and Quantcast all look at different data sets, so considering all three helps to present a more complete picture. Alexa's ranking is based on "a combined measure of Unique Visitors and Pageviews" over a three month period. According to Quantcast, they measure "the number of people in the United States who visit each ...

Consciousness and Intelligence
Post Date: 2017-12-21 04:13:50 by A Pole

Because of our experience we tend to associate consciousness with intelligence, and sometimes confuse the two. However the concepts are not necessarily one and the same. Consider for example that intelligence seems to come in a spectrum, with humans ranking as the most intelligent (so far) and the other animals falling somewhere lower on the scale. Consciousness however seems to be very much a “you have it or you don’t” kind of thing. Unlike intelligence it doesn’t make any sense to talk about someone being “less conscious”. Perhaps you might argue that you are “less conscious” when you have just woken up, but this is to confuse awareness, and clear ...

Now is the time of year when everyone looks back on the past year, and newspapers and websites are filled with headlines like, “The Top Ten News Stories of 2017,” “The 15 Worst Tweets in 2017,” and “The Top 5 Viral Videos of 2017.” Unlike the first year of the Obama Administration, it is unlikely you will see any stories in the mainstream media about the success of the Trump Administration in 2017. Despite the media silence, 2017 has been a strong first year for President Trump. Let’s review. Since he took the presidential oath of office, Donald Trump started working to nominate conservatives who respect the Constitution and roll back harmful regulatory ...

We now know what to call the mysterious object from interstellar space that zoomed past Earth last month. The interloper — the first known interstellar body observed within our own solar system — has been named 'Oumuamua, which means "a messenger from afar arriving first" in Hawaiian, representatives of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) announced yesterday (Nov. 14). The IAU also approved an official scientific designation for 'Oumuamua: 1I/2017 U1. This is a first-of-its-kind moniker; the "I" stands for "interstellar." Previously, small objects like 'Oumuamua have received standard comet or asteroid designations, which sport ...

Maryland has given transportation pioneer Elon Musk permission to dig tunnels for the high-speed, underground transit system known as a hyperloop that Musk wants to build between New York and Washington. Hogan administration officials said Thursday the state has issued a conditional utility permit to let Musk’s tunneling firm, The Boring Co., dig a 10.3-mile tunnel beneath the state-owned portion of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, between the Baltimore city line and Maryland 175 in Hanover. It would be the first portion of the underground system that Musk says could eventually ferry passengers from Washington to New York, with stops in Baltimore and Philadelphia, in just 29 ...

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie: It Helps Them Consolidate Memories

Want to teach an old dog new tricks? Try letting your pet take a nap. New research finds that dogs consolidate new memories in sleep, just like humans do. The study used electroencephalography (EEG), a technique that measures electrical activity in the brain via the scalp, to track snoozing dogs' brain activity. Similar to humans, the dogs showed short bursts of activity, called sleep spindles, during non-rapid-eye-movement sleep. Also as in humans, the frequency of these sleep spindles was linked to how well a dog retained new information it had learned before its nap. "It's the first time that we can actually show this in a dog," said study co-author Ivaylo Iotchev, a ...

If you feel like flat Earth theory has gotten unaccountably popular recently, you’re right. According to Google Trends, search interest in the flat Earth conspiracy theory has already had several distinct peaks in the last year. (“The last year” was 2017, not 1519, just to be clear.) It’s funny, weird, and while it’s certainly not at the top of our list of problems as a society, it’s not entirely innocent either.Interest surged in February and March, then again in May, then again in August and September. These jumps are mostly tied to a couple of strange outbursts by celebrities, notably 2010’s favorite cheeseball rapper and Gossip Girl backing vocalist ...

Reports that Facebook helped spread fake news brewed in Russia raises the question of whether Big Data has gotten too big and unaccountable. According to the social network, the ads in question “appeared to focus on amplifying divisive social and political messages across the ideological spectrum—touching on topics from LGBT matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights.” In other words, they featured hot-button issues that are ripping our social fabric apart at the seams. Whether this “mistake” was generated by profit motive, nefarious greed, or gross negligence, Facebook’s abdication of moral responsibility provides additional fodder for critics on ...

DEATH OF CABLE NEWS: Cord Cutting At Record Highs

Cable news may soon get it's long awaited comeuppance for peddling leftist propaganda and pushing socialist agendas, because the revolution of cord cutting is upon us. According to research firm eMarketer, american consumers are cutting the cord at an even faster rate than expected. The research shows that 22.2 million adults will cut the cord in 2017 for satellite or telco TV services, a full 33% jump from 2016. At this time last year, eMarketer speculated the number of cord cutters would be somewhere around 15.4 million, but it appears their estimates were wildly off. Even more intriguing, the phenomenon of "cord-nevers” — people who have never subscribed to paid TV ...

AI gaydar can accurately determine sexuality from a photo

Facial detection technology is usually used to identify individuals for the purposes of crime prevention, or as a biometric security method. But a paper published by Stanford University -- entitled simply "Deep neural networks are more accurate than humans at detecting sexual orientation from facial images" -- shows that it could also be used to determine people's sexuality. Using AI and deep neural networks, algorithms have been shown to have a far better gaydar than people. Working with a sample of more than 35,000 photographs, the system was able to correctly determine whether individuals were gay or straight with staggering accuracy -- 81 percent of men and 74 percent of ...
