The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

In our survey, carried out before President Trump’s executive order was announced, respondents were given the following statement: ‘All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped’. They were then asked to what extent did they agree or disagree with this statement. Overall, across all 10 of the European countries an average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped, 25% neither agreed nor disagreed and 20% disagreed.
Majorities in all but two of the ten states agreed, ranging from 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany and 51% in Italy to 47% in the United Kingdom and 41% in Spain. In no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32%.

If you want to train the system to recognize a cat, for example, show it 10,000 pictures over and over again of every possible variation of what a cat looks like. But don't show it a dog, because then the AI will get really confused.
Gamalon, a new startup coming out of stealth on Tuesday, claims it's developed an AI technique that requires training the system on only a few pieces data while achieving the same levels of accuracy as the exhaustively-trained neural networks.

That’s terrible! How did Trump trick Obama into approving that?

White Students Wear Pins to Signify Their Racial Shame
The last time a society imposed identity politics on such a rigid basis, Jews wore yellow stars and homosexuals wore pink triangles. Now that whites are the group targeted for blame, what should they wear? The answer on one campus is white puzzle piece pins:
Students at Elizabethtown College this month are wearing white pins in the shape of puzzle pieces to remind them of their white privilege.
According to Aileen Ida, President of the College Democrats,
“No matter how accepting someone is, that doesn’t stop them from being part of a system based on centuries of inequality.”
That is,  you are a bad person, because you are white. Therefore, you must wear the pin of shame, to punish yourself for the achievements of other whites.

More Horror From South Africa- Surprising news — a white was brutally murdered in fundamentally transformed South Africa, and the police actually apprehended a suspect:
A South African mother of three was stabbed 21 times and had her eyes gouged out in a home invasion robbery.
The nude body of Tanya Wiers, 45, was discovered [naked] inside her daughter’s bedroom in Polokwane, about 150 miles north of Pretoria, after her teenage son, Rolf, had returned home from school Feb. 9, the Bosveld Review reported.
When Maela gets out of jail, he will be well advised to stick to murdering white farmers. The odds of getting arrested are slim.

LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. — Due to manning cuts and years of major airliners paying higher wages for sweet abs, the U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command may begin allowing normal-looking people become fighter pilots as early as 2020, sources report.
Sources say that Air Force Chief Gen. David L. Goldfein addressed a crowd of shirtless pilots at a post volleyball match early last week, informing them that due to manning cuts in previous years, some pilots were forced to finish early and leave many units flaccid.
“Air Force Policy requires that each flying squadron maintain enough pilots to publish four consecutive 12-month calendars without seeing the same half-naked pilot more than once,”

LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Catholic Church officials in Portugal said Monday they have assembled more than 15,000 pages of testimony and documentation to support the proposed beatification of Sister Lucia, one of three shepherd children who said the Virgin Mary appeared to them in the town of Fatima 100 years ago.
The officials said the case for Sister Lucia's beatification — the first step toward canonization as a saint — will be sent to the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of Saints, in line with church procedure.

Cognitive Collaboration: Why Humans and Computers Think Better Together
Although artificial intelligence (AI) has experienced a number of “springs” and “winters” in its roughly 60-year history, it is safe to expect the current AI spring to be both lasting and fertile. Applications that seemed like science fiction a decade ago are becoming science fact at a pace that has surprised even many experts.
All of this has created considerable uncertainty about our future relationship with machines, the prospect of technological unemployment, and even the very fate of humanity.[i] Regarding the latter topic, Elon Musk has described AI as “our biggest existential threat.” Stephen Hawking warned that “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.”
