  Out The Airlock!
Posted by: guohua - 12-02-2018, 01:28 AM - Forum: Science and Space...the Other Final Frontiers - Replies (6)

I'd have to put this Whinney / Snowflake floating talking AI robot out the Damn Airlock if it ever told be not to be So mean!  tinyangry

Quote:ISS robot accuses crew of being mean

International Space Station bot CIMON likes Kraftwerk and astronauts who are nice.
Really, Listen to me you Damn Talking Rice-Cooker. I'm as nice as I'm going to get!  tinyok


Quote:"Be nice, please," a free-floating robotic face tells ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst in a video released by the European Space Agency on Friday. 

CIMON (Crew Interactive Mobile Companion) is an Alexa-like robot stuffed with IBM Watson artificial intelligence. It arrived on the International Space Stationearlier this year. 

The robot is meant to assist the human crew members with tasks, provide some entertainment and boost morale. The ESA video shows Gerst's first interactions with the machine, and some of them are a little strange.
Read how it gets weird.
Quote:It starts off innocently enough with CIMON responding politely to Gerst's commands.
The robot engages in small talk.
Gerst asks it to play his favorite song, which turns out to be "The Man-Machine" by German electronic band Kraftwerk.

Things take a turn as CIMON starts to question the intentions of his human companions. "Don't you like it here with me?" it asks Gerst as NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor watches from nearby. "Don't be so mean, please," CIMON says, earning an astonished look from Auñón-Chancellor.
That Tin-Can would be Walking The Plank if I was incharge! smalltappingfoot
OMG! minusculespooked
Does it have control of any of the ISS Life Support Functions?

Quote:The good news is CIMON doesn't have control of the ISS systems like HAL 9000 did with the spacecraft in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Gerst ends up praising the robot's ability to fly in microgravity, but CIMON might need to work on its insecurity

  Met police push ahead with armed patrols
Posted by: Wallfire - 12-01-2018, 02:32 PM - Forum: General News and Events - Replies (1)

Unless the police are ready to use there guns and shoot people this is just a PR stunt. If anything since the yobs know the police will not shoot they will just get street creds by confronting the police.
If police carry guns they must be ready to use them and others must understand this, only then does it work.

The Metropolitan police have said they would press ahead with plans to allow armed officers to patrol areas with their guns visible and ready to use, in an effort to quell knife crime and violent gangs.
News of the plans provoked criticism and, the Guardian has learned, has sparked a rift with Sadiq Khan, who was not consulted despite the force being accountable in law to the London mayor.

The plans represent a change to traditional policing, where firearms officers are only deployed when there was a fear suspects may have weapons.
The Met leadership – from the commissioner, Cressida Dick, downwards – stressed the plan would not amount to routine armed patrols in the capital.
Some parts of central [url=https://www.theguardian.com/uk/london]London have armed patrols to counter the threat of terrorist attack, but the new plans being developed by the Met would send armed foot patrols to residential areas with high violent crime.
Commander Kyle Gordon, the head of firearms for the Met, said the force would consult further before a decision was made to approve or drop the plan by the leadership of Britain’s biggest police force.
Gordon said he had helped to formulate the plan. He said that so far the reaction from people the Met had consulted was largely positive, adding: “Would there be benefit in the [armed] officer getting outside their vehicles, and either being static or walking short distances in an area to do two things; be seen in instances where we believed that would enhance community confidence and where we believe it would disrupt and deter any violent activity?”
Gordon said that officers on armed foot patrols would carry their main weapon and wear a pistol on their hip. “If they leave the vehicle to do a patrol their weapons would be accessible and visible.”
He added: “What we are asking is can we use all the assets [of the Met], including armed officers, to enhance confidence and deter activity.”
Gordon said the presence of officers could deter crimes such as burglaries, and armed officers on foot patrol could do so with gang and knife crime.
He said officers would not open fire if a suspect with a knife refused to comply. “If the current standard is met, where officers have an honestly held belief where someone’s life is in danger, an officer has a right to use force.”
He said armed officers were trained to a higher standard to “deal with conflict” and also carry Tasers.
The mayor’s office has not publicly criticised the plan but one senior source said the view was that the Met had made a mess of how it had handled the plans so far, and had blundered in not consulting the mayor, but there was still full confidence in the commissioner.

Details had leaked out in an email sent to some community figures to seek their views. Len Duvall, a Labour member of the London assembly, said : “I welcome the rowing back …… Any new tactics needs to be effective and appropriate.”
Victor Olisa, a former commander of Tottenham in north London, which has been an area with above average levels of violent crime and gang activity, said: “With proper consultation I think it is a good idea. When I was in charge of Tottenham, I believed the people deserved the same protection as other parts of London. In Westminster the risk was terrorism; in Tottenham serious violence was the bigger risk.
“The assumption would be these officers would be in areas of large black population. Police need to make sure it is not misinterpreted.”

To be honest, I didn't care for him to much, I think he and his son worked to advance the NWO.

But, I do give my Condolences to the Family, he was an ex-POTUS and I respect him for that.

  Report confirms girls in Finland are taken abroad to undergo FGM
Posted by: Wallfire - 11-30-2018, 09:42 PM - Forum: Off Topic - No Replies

Raciest Finland fights back to stop FGM. Its the Somali community who practices FMG the most, the same community that calls Finland raciest.
They like to say that FGM is the same as circumcision but its NOT. To do the same to a man you would need to cut his balls off. 

Quote:
Female genital mutilation is illegal in Finland, but the tradition lives on in several immigrant communities. The head of Fenix Helsinki, an NGO that produced a study on the subject, says while most of the incidents take place abroad, she has heard that the procedures also take place within Finland's borders.

Girls in Finland are at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM), according to a new study released on Friday. The NGO Fenix Helsinki's report cites several instances of girls being transported out of the country for FGM procedures, confirming suspicions that the illegal practice is taking place.
Ujuni Ahmed is the chair of Fenix Helsinki. She is a second-generation Somali immigrant, who arrived in Finland as a young girl with her parents in 1991.
"Our study demonstrates that these trips really are organised in Finland. I have also heard that FGM is carried out within the country," Ahmed says.
Real purpose of the trip concealed
Although the report's authors spoke with several women who had undergone FGM, only four agreed to be interviewed for the study. The four women that were interviewed were transported from Finland to different countries - Egypt, Somalia, Syria and Iran - for the illegal procedure. Only one had ever visited a gynaecologist, and all four were not aware of the purpose of the trip ahead of time.
"The continuation of the tradition in Finland is largely influenced by how aware people are of FGM's illegal status and the damage it can do. It is also a matter of how well a person or community is integrated into Finnish society," she says.
FGM is a cultural tradition that exists in the Middle East, Asia and some African countries. It often involves circumcision of a woman's or girl's external genitals or closure of the vulva.
Corrective surgery available in Helsinki
Senior Helsinki and Uusimaa Hospital District (HUS) physician Sinikka Suominen has performed corrective surgery on women and girls who have undergone FGM.
"I've only had a few patients over the years, despite the fact that our clinic is the only - or one of the only - places that carries out these corrective surgeries in Finland, to my knowledge," she says.
She says this tells her that women in Finland aren't aware that corrective measures are available.
"In the end, it is a simple operation that could really help these people. I hope that information about it would spread. We would gladly welcome more patients," Suominen says.
The report will be handed over today to Tuomas Kurttila, Finland's Ombudsman for Children.
"The study is important because the people in question are Finnish citizens. Until now, we have put our trust in the ability of the healthcare system would prevent this kind of thing from taking place on a widespread basis, but this is clearly not the case," he says.
Dire need for more information
Fenix Helsinki's Ahmed says the authorities, victims and families of the victims are united in their lack of information.
"A minor is rarely able to critically challenge the traditions and habits of their family. It is often a family member that carries out the procedure, sometimes even the girl's own mother," she says. 
She says Finland still has a long way to go in educating gynaecologists, health care centre workers, doctors and school personnel in how to relay information about FGM, with an emphasis on the illegal status and the health and psychological risks involved. 
"We need to get the data into the communities, so the change can happen from within," says Ahmed.
Hard for the law to intervene
Despite Ahmed having heard about FGM taking place in Finland, not one report of a suspected crime of this nature has been reported to the Finnish police.
National Police Commissioner Seppo Kolehmainen said on Friday that it is almost impossible for the Finnish police to clamp down on FGM. Most of the cases are taking place during visits to foreign countries, as the report has shown. He says the authorities are dependent on health and social service practitioners in this case, because most of the abuse is taking place under a shroud of secrecy.

  7.0 Earthquake in Alaska!
Posted by: Mystic Wanderer - 11-30-2018, 08:24 PM - Forum: Breaking News - Replies (2)

Breaking!  7.0 earthquake hits Anchorage, Alaska, prompting tsunami warnings.

Source


Quote:ANCHORAGE, Alaska --
A 7.0-magnitude earthquake has rocked buildings in Anchorage and caused lamp posts and trees to sway, prompting people to run out of offices and seek shelter under office desks.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the earthquake Friday morning was centered about seven miles north of Alaska's largest city.

The USGS initially listed the quake as a 6.6-magnitude, however, it later upgraded it to a 7.0.

The National Tsunami Warning Center has issued a tsunami warning for coastal zones of southern Alaska following the quake.

RELATED: Here's what to do if there's a tsunami

The center said that the warning was in effect for parts of the state's Cook Inlet and the southern Kenai Peninsula.

The warning means tsunami waves are expected.

An Associated Press reporter working in downtown Anchorage saw cracks in a 2-story building after the quake. It was unclear whether there were injuries.

People went back inside buildings after the earthquake but a smaller aftershock a short time later sent them running back into the streets again.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

  Finland a Raciest Country
Posted by: Wallfire - 11-30-2018, 03:45 PM - Forum: Social Unrest and Justice - Replies (4)

A report has just come out that Finland is a very raciest country, and we have had the standard response from minsters about how can the Finns be like this in 2018 ect ect, im sure everyone here know the sort of thing.
Is Finland a raciest country ? perhaps, but its hard to know as the gold posts for what is raciest keep changing to suit PC.
A question no one in the government asks is this just the anger of Finns because of the increased rapes, violence of the sort not seen in Finland before, such as the beating up, raping and burning to death of a teenage girl. How its not safe to walk in the citys at night, how billions of Euro is been used for the "imports" wile social services and pensions have been cut.
No one ever blames the "imports", no one ever says to them if you want to live here obey our laws. It was just in the news that one "Import" had lied three times about his age and when he was charged with rape tried ( but failed) to have it excused on the grounds of "culture misunderstanding" 
Is it raciest to have anger at these things? is it raciest to want everyone to have the same law ?
Is Finland "raciest" perhaps, but if it is its because of the behavior of the imports.

  Some may not agree with me,,,,, But,,,,,

That is right, there are people that won't agree with me on this thread that I'm about to post, But left me say this, I am treating (With Herbs) more patients with more exotic or should I say, not common illnesses for Arizona.

My newer patients have grade school age children in areas of the city with a higher percentage of families from South America.
Much like what is attempting to cross our borders now.

The children and their mothers are mostly Caucasians and American Born and Raised Hispanics that don't really travel to Mexico or further south anymore. 

Now let me introduce the article and I'd like to point out, these new form of Polio that has arrived in our Country, I believe was brought here by these so-called Refugees and Migrants.

Quote:One-third of migrants in caravan are being treated for health issues, Tijuana health official says
 
I think 1/3rd. is a very Conservative Number.
Quote:Migrants who came with the caravan are suffering from respiratory infections, tuberculosis, chickenpox and other serious health issues, Tijuana's Health Department warned on Thursday morning.
People have forgotten that Tuberculosis can be Deadly.
They are also suffering from all sorts shin lesions, Rashes, open sore and bringing with them more Bed Bugs and Fleas that can cause some very serious Illnesses.
Quote:There are three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox, the spokesman said.

At least 101 migrants have lice and multiple instances of skin infections, the department’s data shows.

There’s also a threat of Hepatitis outbreak due to unsanitary conditions.
Source

 Hepatitis is a Very Major concern.
 
Tuberculosis is highly communicable and in those conditions the 3 confirmed cases will quickly spread to 300, and treating it isn't easy.  It requires expensive daily medication and if they don't take the medication correctly the TB can mutate and eventually become resistant.  

Health Departments in the US can have people incarcerated if they don't comply with the medication orders as a matter of public safety, but by all means let's let these people ask for asylum and hope they are in good health and don't cause an epidemic which can spread.

  The Strange story of the SS Warrimoo
Posted by: gordi - 11-29-2018, 12:08 PM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (3)

There is an infamous ship which was once seen in Summer AND Winter, in TWO different centuries, in TWO different hemispheres of the Earth AT THE SAME TIME!

Was it Time-Travel? A Time-Space Distortion?

No.

A Simple stroke of luck and some fine navigation skills placed the ship SS Warrimoo at exactly the right place at the right time to achieve the "impossible" feat of time / space
displacement!


Fellow Rogues. may I present The Strange Story of The SS Warrimoo...

[Image: warrimoo2.jpg]

Quote:The passenger steamer SS Warrimoo was quietly knifing its way through the waters of the mid-Pacific on its way from Vancouver to Australia. The navigator had just finished working out a star fix and brought the master, Captain John Phillips, the result. The Warrimoo's position was latitude 0 degrees x 31 minutes north and longitude 179 degrees x 30 minutes west.
 
The date was 30 December 1899.  Know what this means?  First Mate Payton broke in, we're only a few miles from the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line.
Captain Phillips was prankish enough to take full advantage of the opportunity for achieving the navigational freak of a lifetime. He called his navigators to the bridge to check and double check the ships position. He changed course slightly so as to bear directly on his mark. Then he adjusted the engine speed. The calm weather and clear night worked in his favour.   At midnight the Warrimoo lay on the Equator at exactly the point where it crossed the International Date Line!


[Image: 45108075_10213880370229693_8854223742407...e=5C6D6021]


Quote:The consequences of this bizarre position were many. The forward part of the ship was in the Southern Hemisphere and the middle of summer. The stern was in the Northern Hemisphere and in the middle of winter. The date in the aft part of the ship was 31 December 1899.  Forward it was 1 January 1900.
This ship was therefore not only in two different days, two different months, two different seasons and two different years but in two different centuries-all at the same time.

Bizarre, but True!

  The 2017 Arizona Blaze & Who Did It.
Posted by: BIAD - 11-28-2018, 10:14 PM - Forum: General News and Events - Replies (2)

Jut when you think you've got a handle on the word 'stupid', something else comes along that
demands the word is re-calibrated.


Quote:Baby gender reveal celebration explosion started $8.2m Arizona wildfire.

Dennis Dickey had wanted to show friends the sex of his unborn child using an explosive device
filled with coloured powder.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=4834]

'Newly released video shows the moment an off-duty border agent in Arizona started a huge wildfire as
part of a gender reveal celebration for his unborn baby.
The April 2017 Sawmill blaze destroyed 47,000 acres and took 800 firefighters to put out, at a cost of $8.2m.

Dennis Dickey, 37, and his wife Rita, planned to reveal the sex of their baby to friends and relatives by setting
off an explosive device filled with coloured powder - blue to indicate a boy.

Dickey shot a target containing Tannerite, a legal, but very powerful explosive.
The video shows the blast and the surrounding grass immediately catching fire, the ferocity of the blaze
exacerbated by months of dry weather. It quickly spread to the Coronado National Forest.

Dickey immediately reported the fire and is said to have admitted starting it, saying it had been a "complete
accident". Last month he pleaded guilty to starting a fire without a permit and was sentenced to five years
probation, a $100,000 fine and $500 a month restitution for the next 20 years.

Tiffany Davila, a spokeswoman for the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, said:
"We pass that message on all the time -one spark is all it takes, one spark is all it takes.
"It's true. When you see that video, you see how quickly the grasses catch on fire and how quickly it moves."...'
