A New AI Hub In Canada Is Welcoming the Scientists Trump Is Pushing AwayLeisureGuy

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 18:52:26 +0000

Jordan Pearson reports at Motherboard: Thanks to President Donald Trump’s abhorrent stances on immigration and science, a new AI research hub in Canada stands to gain the brainpower that the US is now repelling. It’s not an exaggeration to say that artificial intelligence as we know it was largely developed in Canada. For years, a […](image)

Why Does Apple Object to News About Drone Strikes?LeisureGuy

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 17:55:04 +0000

This is very weird, and it seems highly inappropriate for Apple to be blocking certain types of news, particularly news that is routinely reported by the press. Kevin Drum writes at Mother Jones: Over at the Intercept, Josh Begley has a story that’s disturbing—but not in the usualIntercept way: Five years ago, I made a […](image)

Crowdfunding campaign seeks to purchase search history of lawmakers who killed internet privacyLeisureGuy

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 17:05:28 +0000

The GOP House and Senate both voted to remove privacy protection so that ISPs can track your browsing history (and, presumably, your on-line purchases) and sell that information on the open market. So this initiative, to purchase the browsing history of those voting in favor, is very interesting. Tom Cahill reports in Resistance Report: Republicans […](image)

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 16:00:23 +0000

As I’ve been going through my soap collection, I come across soaps I forgot I had, and today I discovered that I in fact had a Cavendish soap from How To Grow A Moustache (now Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements) that matches the fragrance of the Phoenix Artisan Cavendish aftershave that I like so much. As I’ve […](image)

Trump in the Middle East: The New BrutalityLeisureGuy

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 23:09:53 +0000

Ahmed Rashid writes in the NY Review of Books: In the opening months of the Donald Trump administration, there has been little sign of a coherent foreign policy taking shape. What is happening, however, is a dramatic militarization of US policy in the Middle East—one that is occurring largely without the consultation of American allies, and […](image)

The Senate has already voted to remove your privacy protections, and now the House follows suit. Goodbye, privacy. It was great while it lasted.

Evidence That Robots Are Winning the Race for American JobsLeisureGuy

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 22:12:29 +0000

This is grim, though Trump’s Treasury Secretary can’t see any signs of a problem. Claire Cain Miller reports in the NY Times: Who is winning the race for jobs between robots and humans? Last year, two leading economists described a future in which humans come out ahead. But now they’ve declared a different winner: the […](image)

Lunchtime links from Radley BalkoLeisureGuy

There sure seems to be a lot of news about the sort of thing Radley Balko tracks.

Emily Atkin writes in The New Republic: The whole reason President Donald Trump is releasing a wide-ranging executive order today to dismantle a bunch of America’s climate change policies is because he says it will be good for the economy.

Heather Digby Parton has a really good column in Salon.

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 18:49:06 +0000

Radley Balko writes in the Washington Post: Back in 1970, Congress passed a couple of bills authorizing the “no-knock raid.” This was an issue that President Richard Nixon had pushed during the 1968 presidential campaign. Prior to the late 1960s, police did sometimes enter residences without knocking, but they’d only decide to do so under “exigent circumstances,” such […](image)

The Simpson Emperor is a favorite, though I notice I tend to pick one of my synthetics more often. Still this is a great brush, and the lather from Phoenix Artisan’s kokum butter shave soaps is excellent. Alt-Eleven has a great frangrance, and these soaps always make my skin feel good.
