10 Amazing Robots That Really Exist..


 

Water disappears at Playa Balandra in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, revealing dry sand as far as eyes can see just a day after the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse..

The Ocean has disappeared again. This time along one of the most beautiful beach in the world, Playa Balandra, in Baja California Sur, Mexico on February 1, 2018. This is one day after the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse of January 31, 2018. And the very low tide, anomalous said some residents, opened a giant gap into the sea, revealing only dry sand over hundreds of meters. It’s not related to a tsunami…. So I would say the amazing water receding is most probably linked to the bloody fullmoon that occurred just a day before….

Rumours spread out fast that a tsunami would be expected anytime. Some of the fishermen predicting that the city would be hit by something like a tsunami and the sea will be receded over 50 to 100 metres.

OFF THE AIR: NBC Pulls Commentator Whose Insensitive Japan Comments Sparked Furor

Joshua Ramo infuriated Koreans and others with comments about Japan and Korea’s history that viewers said glossed over the two nations’ troubled past.

The NBC commentator who was skewered by viewers for insensitive remarks he made during the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea, has been relieved of his duties, the broadcaster announced on Monday.

“Joshua Cooper Ramo has completed his responsibilities for NBC in Pyeongchang, and will have no further role on our air,” an NBC spokesman told Reuters.

Ramo, a former journalist who served as an on-air analyst for NBC, infuriated Koreans on Friday when he flippantly commented on the history between Japan and South Korea during the opening ceremony. Spotting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Ramo mused that “every Korean will tell you that Japan is a cultural and technological and economic example, has been so important to their own transformation.”….

An-148 plane crash may have been triggered by speed-indicator failure – investigators

The crash of An-148 passenger plane in the Moscow Region may have been caused by incorrect flight speed data due to icing, the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) said after deciphering the flight data recorder.

On Tuesday, the IAC announced it had completed the deciphering of information contained in the one of the black boxes – the on-board data flight recorder – of the crashed plane. It is still working on the other black box, the voice recorder.

The preliminary analysis suggests that the “incorrect data about flight speed on the pilots’ indicators, which in turn was linked to the icing of the pitot-static [sensor] system” led to a “special situation” with the plane, according to the IAC statement….

Violent Somali Rapist Told Teen Victim She Couldn’t Be a Virgin ‘Because She’s White’

A Somali national has been jailed after he held a sharp piece of wood to a teenage girl’s throat as he raped her.

Ahmed Abdoule said the girl could not be a virgin “because she was white”, and told her “my country would love you” following the attack, was given an 11-year sentence at Hull Crown Court the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Reports have not indicated how long Abdoule will actually spend in prison and the court has not responded to a request for information, but if the sentence follows the standard formula he will likely be released after roughly five years.

Despite his racial contempt for the victim, the Abdoule’s crime does not appear to have been treated as racially aggravated, which could have meant a tougher sentence.

It is also not clear whether the Government will seek to deport him. It has previously proved impossible to deport criminal migrants with large families due to judges’ interpretation of the European “right to respect for private and family life.”….

‘Minority Report’ China: Railway police use facial recognition glasses to fight crime

Chinese police are using facial recognition glasses to identify ‘fugitives’ passing through a crowded train station. The futuristic technology may be the next step in making sure no criminals escape justice.

Officers deployed at Zhengzhou East high-speed rail station in the Henan province are the first in the country to don the cutting-edge, tinted glasses in the name of catching criminals.

The glasses contain in-built facial recognition software that allows police to scan passengers travelling through the station. Specifically designed for police use, the smart spectacles are connected to a tablet-like device that allows officers to take mugshots and compare them to a police database.

The app brings up the suspect’s vital information, including name, ethnicity, gender and last-known address. It also informs police if the individual is on the run from the law, the address of where they are staying and information related to their internet usage, according to AFP.

Russian hackers hunt hi-tech secrets, exploiting US weakness

Russian cyberspies pursuing the secrets of military drones and other sensitive U.S. defense technology tricked key contract workers into exposing their email to theft, an Associated Press investigation has found.

What ultimately may have been stolen is uncertain, but the hackers clearly exploited a national vulnerability in cybersecurity: poorly protected email and barely any direct notification to victims.

The hackers known as Fancy Bear, who also intruded in the U.S. election, went after at least 87 people working on militarized drones, missiles, rockets, stealth fighter jets, cloud-computing platforms or other sensitive activities, the AP found.

Employees at both small companies and defense giants like Lockheed Martin Corp., Raytheon Co., Boeing Co., Airbus Group and General Atomics were targeted by the hackers. A handful of people in Fancy Bear’s sights also worked for trade groups, contractors in U.S.-allied countries or on corporate boards….

Record snow hits Japan, kills 7 and traps 1400 vehicles for over 48 hours

Record snowfall that hit the Hokuriku region of northwestern Japan this week killed seven people in snow-related accidents and injured at least 34. The storm brought traffic to a standstill and trapped people in 1 400 vehicles for more than 48 hours.

Record heavy snow disrupted traffic and everyday life in areas along the Sea of Japan coast, NHK reported Tuesday, February 6.

Kaga City in Ishikawa Prefecture was under 194 cm (76.4 inches) of snow as of 08:00 local time Wednesday, February 7 while the snowfall in Fukui City in Fukui Prefecture, some 320 km (199 miles) west of Tokyo, reached 134 cm (52.7 inches), the worst since 1981.

More than 60 cm (23.6 inches) of snow fell on the city in just two days and 22 cm (8.6 inches) within 15 hours ending 15:00 local time February 7. At the time, the city was under 147 cm (57.9 inches) of snow. This is seven times more than average for the region and the worst in 56 years.

The snow trapped as much as 1 400 vehicles on a stretch of National Route No. 8 in Fukui Prefecture Tuesday night, forcing them to sleep in cars and walk for kilometers to purchase food and water….

Apocalyptic hailstorm with hail larger than softballs hits Cordoba, Argentina – 7.1 inches hailstone breaks record in South America

Giant hail fell Thursday, February 8, 2018, in the city of Cordoba, Argentina. The hail started around 4:30 in the afternoon. At first, it was “tiny and fun,” but then it changed. Hailstones larger than tennis balls began to fall from the sky, eventually growing to mammoth size as a stone of 7.1 inches hit the ground almost intact. This hailstone falls short of the U.S. record holder, an 8-inch hailstone that fell in Vivian, S.D., on July 23, 2010. The hail lasted 20 minutes. It was kind of terrifying.

Man arrested after allegedly spanking stranger’s child in Kroger checkout line

The father of the child told police the suspect was intoxicated when he grabbed his son by the arm and spanked him at the self-checkout line.

A man was taken into custody after allegedly spanking a 2-year-old child in a grocery store checkout line.

On Feb. 6, Newnan police arrested 62-year-old Juan Guvarra Martinez after he allegedly spanked a stranger’s child at a Newnan Kroger.

The boy’s father, Logan Morris, said he was going through the checkout aisle with his 2-year-old son when the boy asked for candy.

“I told him, ‘No, it’s too late bud,'” Morris said.

That’s when, according to Morris, the man behind them in the line grabbed his son’s hand, spun him around and spanked him three times…..

Physician: We need a universal flu vaccine — No more excuses

My late father could recall as a child the horrendous flu pandemic of 1918-19. Horse-drawn wagons piled with corpses rolled through the streets of Philadelphia, where the death toll that winter was 15,556. In total, more than 500,000 Americans died.

Worldwide, the pandemic was the worst in history, claiming between 50 million and 100 million lives.

We haven’t seen numbers approaching those in a century, but seasonal outbreaks of flu sicken and kill many thousands of Americans even in a good flu season, and this is a bad one.

According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year since 2010 flu has caused “between 9.2 million and 35.6 million illnesses, between 140,000 and 710,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths” in the U.S.

 This flu season, which is still inflicting misery and debility on much of the country, is ominous. The statistics are likely to be on the high end of those ranges….

Blacker than black: Darkest building in the world unveiled in S. Korea

The result is a building that looks like an otherworldly black hole. The walls no longer appear three dimensional, and tiny lights on the building are suggestive of stars against the backdrop of deep darkness.

“From a distance, the structure has the appearance of a window looking into the depths of outer space,” Khan said, ArchDaily reports. “As you approach it, this impression grows to fill your entire field of view. So on entering the building, it feels as though you are being absorbed into a cloud of blackness.”

iPhone source code leaked online could mean payday for hackers

A source code for a key component of the iPhone’s operating system was leaked online, potentially handing hackers coveted data which will make it easier to break into iOS. It was removed after Apple filed a takedown request.

The code posted on GitHub is for the iOS 9.3 version of iBoot, a vital component of iOS which ensures the booting of the operating system.

It was posted on the website by user ‘ZioShiba.’ It remains unclear how the user obtained the code, but it appears to be legitimate. That’s according to Jonathan Levin, the author of a series of books on iOS, who spoke to Motherboard and called the incident the “biggest leak in history” and a “huge deal.” The website Gadget Hacks also said the code is “definitely the real deal.”….

Compounding debt in US is exploding..

 

Comment from forum:

When he said we’re close to the 2 million a minute mark, this means debt is growing faster exponentially. In other words the whole process in speeding up, and shorter intervals that give margin to put it off. That 2 WILL EVENTUALLY go to 4 a minute even faster now, and doubling by the factor of exponents until out of control. It’s less and less time to figure out, more needed increases, which leads to default or out right hyperinflation. The rate of spending will tell you how close to hyperinflation spark it is. I thought it would be much less than 20 trillion by the way John Willams was speaking, but not up to 30 trillion total. I think in between 5 trillion more factors in numbers will kick in and it begins and mathematical forces take over at that point. Maybe it can reach 30 trillion, but at some point the factors and exponents are the drivers in debt.


 

Judge Cuts Pedophile’s Prison Sentence Claiming 3-Year-Old ‘Asked’ To Be Raped – Kevin Rojano was initially sentenced to 25 years to life in prison

Slashes 15 years from jail sentence saying ‘he didn’t mean to harm’ the young child

A California judge has caused outrage after slashing 15 years off the jail sentence of a pedophile convicted of raping a 3-year-old child.

Orange County Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly cut the child rapist’s prison term down to ten years from 25 years claiming that “he didn’t mean to harm” the toddler girl that he raped.

He also backed the claim from rapist Kevin Rojano that the young child initiated the sodomy, who said in his own defense that she “asked me to do it.”

Rojano was convicted on December 3 of sodomizing a child younger than 10 and lascivious acts with a minor, and he was initially sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Judge Kelly then trimmed a massive 15 years off Rojano’s sentence, saying it would be “cruel and unusual punishment” to impose the maximum prison term because the 20-year-old lacked “callous disregard for (the victim’s) well-being.”….

Child Who Killed Pedophile To Escape Sex Trafficking Ring Gets Life In Prison

A child from Nashville, who was kidnapped and forced into child sex slavery by a pedophile ring, has been sentenced to life in prison for murder by a judge after she was forced to shoot a rapist before escaping from the human trafficking network.16-year-old Cyntoia Brown was arrested by police for the murder of a 42-year-old pedophile and tried in court as an adult, where she was jailed for life.

Cyntoia Brown got life in prison after she was forced to shoot a pedophile to escape sex slavery.

She will be eligible for parole at some point after her 69th birthday.Miss Brown was abducted when she was a young teen and was sold to pedophiles by a child prostitution ring.In 2004, she was taken in the back of a truck to the home of a 42-year-old man’s home in Murfreesboro Pike where he raped her in his bed.

As he lay naked in the bed beside her, she says she saw him reach down for a gun, at which point she then shot him in the back of the head with a .40-caliber handgun, before making her escape.She immediately made her way to the sanctuary of the police station and told them her story, confessing to killing the child abuser.She is now 29 and has been locked up ever since….

MIT develops ink that changes the color of 3D printed objects

You may one day be able to change the color of your favorite shirt or bracelet to match the rest of your outfit.

New research from MIT released on Monday details a method called ColorFab for recoloring 3D printed objects after they have been printed. The method combines software, hardware and special 3D ink.

The effort aims to reduce waste: You won’t need to print something again to change the color.

“Manufacturers and designers spend significant amounts of time, energy and money re-printing designs when they don’t come out exactly right the first time,” Stefanie Mueller, coauthor of the paper and professor at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, told CNN Tech. “This sort of technology could help minimize the amount of waste that is produced from updating products.”….

Elon Musk just launched our earthshaking new adventure

The new Space Age began Tuesday, even though so much of it felt like the old one — in a good way.

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket, more powerful than any rocket in use today, was successfully launched from Cape Canaveral, carrying a payload intended to fly near Mars one day.

Once the massive rocket sprinted off historic launchpad 39A about 3:45 p.m., everything seemed to go off as planned, from the activation of David Bowie’s music as soundtrack to the pinpoint return of two reusable booster rockets to separate platforms on the ground.
Let us elaborate: The boosters fired retro rockets, unfolded their landing gear and touched down like helicopters.
 As we say: This is a new Space Age.
What felt familiar, however, was the breathtaking and (literally) earthshaking excitement of watching a massive man-made launch vehicle destined to push something man-made farther than anyone can now imagine. The only thing that could have stoked the emotions harder was knowing there was a human being aboard.
There wasn’t. There was a red Tesla Roadster with a dummy in a space suit behind the wheel. That’s “dummy” as in mannequin, not a figure of speech or a joke…

Driverless burning car makes bizarre ‘getaway’ from firefighters (VIDEO)

A flaming runaway car was filmed evading police as it sped downhill through a residential area in Alicante, Spain.

The driverless car-cum-fireball was reportedly parked by its owner after a dashboard warning light appeared on Sunday morning. Shortly afterwards, it burst into flames. The blaze is believed to have been sparked by an electrical fault, according to the Provincial Fire Brigade of Alicante.

Firefighters were in the middle of tackling the flames when the vehicle began to roll down a hill lined with pedestrians and residents in the town of Cocentaina, in eastern Spain. Handbrake failure is thought to have prompted the car to roll, rather than the fire itself….

 Viruses ‘falling from sky in their billions every day’..

Billions of viruses fall from the sky every day, according to new research which could explain why genetically identical viruses are often found in very different environments around the world.

In a scientific first, a team of international researchers recorded the number of viruses being swept up daily from the Earth’s surface into the free troposphere – the lowest layer of the atmosphere, in which nearly all weather occurs.

The study, published in the International Society for Microbial Ecology Journal, describes the detection of hundreds of millions of viruses and bacteria raining down from the sky on a daily basis.

“Every day, more than 800 million viruses are deposited per square metre above the planetary boundary layer – that’s 25 viruses for each person in Canada,” study co-author and University of British Columbia virologist Curtis Suttle said in a statement….

‘Collective punishment’: Alleged ISIS relatives forcibly displaced & kept in Iraqi camps, says HRW

Iraqi forces have forcibly moved more than 235 families to camps over several weeks for alleged family ties with Islamic State, Human Rights Watch (HRW) reports. The group condemns what it terms “collective punishment.”

In early January, Iraqi security forces carried out a major sweep operation, displacing at least 235 families, the HRW report said on Sunday. Some 220 families from villages west of the city of Kirkuk arrived at the Daquq camp alone in less than three weeks.

Groups affiliated with Iraqi state-sponsored umbrella organization, the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), were reportedly involved in the operation. The forces destroyed civilians’ homes and “forced some parents to leave children behind, stole some of the families’ livestock,” HRW alleges, citing witnesses.

“Some were beaten and they were brought to a camp against their will,” Belkis Wille, HRW’s senior Iraq researcher or Iraq and Qatar told RT. The researcher personally visited the camp and interviewed families last week. The organization’s report also said that some people came to the camps with “purple bruises” on their backs and others, including women, had bruises in their arms and legs….

Protests of the production began when an African-American student quit Ithaca High School’s musical production due to the role of Esmeralda being given to a white classmate.

“It shows you that theater wasn’t made for you,” the student told the Ithaca Journal. “And it shows you that, if you can’t get the parts that are written for you, what parts are you going to get?”

Student activists then banded together under the umbrella of Students United Ithaca and wrote a letter that included a list of demands, saying that, while the young lady cast as Esmeralda was “a stellar actor, singer, and dancer” any production would be “lucky to have,” she couldn’t be cast in this role because she is the “epitome of whiteness.”…

Fake doctor in India infects dozens of patients with HIV using 1 syringe

Authorities in India are searching for a phony rural doctor who negligently infected more than 30 people with HIV by using a single syringe on multiple patients whom he promised a miraculous and super cheap treatment.

Hundreds of patients residing around Unnao City in India might be infected with the deadly human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) after falling victim to a man who cycled around three villages for over a year, offering a “magic treatment” for 10 Indian rupees ($0.16).

The doctor has been identified as Rajendra Kumar, also known as Rajendra Yadav to the locals. Unlicensed physicians, known as ‘jhola chaap’ or ‘allopathic’ doctors, are a common find in poor and rural communities in India. None of the locals who used the man’s cheap treatment suspected any foul play.

“He was like an angel for us. Government doctors would prescribe medicine from outside, which cost us between Rs 100 and Rs 300, but his injection worked for just Rs 10. If we got good government health care, why would so many flock to Yadav,” a local resident told the Indian Express….

Nissan’s new Japan hotel takes automation to a new level

Japan already has the world’s smartest toilets, but now there are smart shoes, furniture and accessories.
You might remember Nissan’s 2016 marketing maneuver, when the Japanese carmaker introduced a line of self-driving chairs that could autonomously glide together using cameras and sensors.
This time, the auto innovators have taken aim at traditional hospitality and everyday objects.
Drawing from the autonomous parking technology of the Nissan Leaf car, which debuted in October, the ProPILOT Park Ryokan hotel comes kitted out with all kinds of intuitive amenities.
Sadly, the ryokan isn’t a long-term hotel but rather part of a pop-up project. It will be open for one night only, on March 24, when the winners of a social media contest will have a chance to stay and experience the automatic amenities….

YouTube star Kian Lawley loses movie gig after racist comments

YouTube star Kian Lawley will not appear in the upcoming adaptation of bestselling young adult novel “The Hate U Give” after a video of Lawley making racist statements began making rounds online.

“Due to the controversy surrounding his past comments and behavior, Kian Lawley will no longer appear in ‘The Hate U Give,'” A spokesperson for Twentieth Century Fox Films said in a statement to CNN. “The studio plans to recast the role of Chris and reshoot scenes as needed.”

An undated video of Lawley making racist remarks was uploaded late last month by YouTube user Just Trash. Though it has just more than 42,000 views, the video drew enough attention to prompt a response from Lawley two days ago, before he was let go from the film.

“If u don’t learn from ur mistakes, u can never grow as a person,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’ve learned a lot & i am grateful to have the power to change.”

 Lawley has not indicated when the video was filmed….

Amazon reviews scam? Couple who keep getting mystery packages fear they are next victims

A Massachusetts couple who keep receiving mystery packages from Amazon fear they are the next victims in what is believed to be an elaborate fake reviews scam that is impacting the e-commerce giant.

Mike and Kelly Gallivan, of Acton, told The Boston Globe the first package arrived in October. They have continued to arrive at a rate of one or two a week, about 25 in all. The cheap items inside the boxes range from USB-powered humidifiers to rechargeable dog collars.

“We’re just plain, ordinary people,” Kelly Gallivan told the newspaper. “We don’t want any part of this. But the packages just keep coming.”….

Contractor awarded $156 million to provide 30 million meals to Puerto Rico only delivered 50,000

A contractor who was awarded a massive contract to provide millions of meals to Puerto Ricans affected by Hurricane Maria drastically underdelivered, according to a New York Times investigation.

Tiffany Brown, an Atlanta entrepreneur and self-described government contractor who owns Tribute Contracting LLC, was awarded the $156 million contract by FEMA on Oct. 3 to provide 30 million self-heating meals to Puerto Rico, but only followed through on 50,000.

Brown, the sole employee of her company, hired an 11-person wedding catering company and a Texas nonprofit that had shipped food to a Houston food bank during Hurricane Harvey to provide the meals.

But Brown’s contract was terminated by email on Oct. 19, after Brown failed to meet a deadline of providing the first 18.5 million meals. She had only delivered 50,000, according to the Times….

Mutant crayfish invading the world originates from 1 single female

An all-female species of crayfish which evolved at a German aquarium 30 years ago could rapidly invade our planet by cloning itself, according to a new genome study.

The bizarre evolution of the 10-legged crustacean was explored in a genome study led by scientists at the German Cancer Research Center and detailed in a paper published in Nature.

The researchers sequenced the genome of the freshwater marbled crayfish and found that its all-female offspring are genetically identical, meaning they descended from a single mother crayfish.

Scientists counted 3.5 billion base pairs in the crayfish genome, which are some 7 percent larger in size than the human genome. Officially known as Procambarus virginalis but also called the Marmorkrebs, the crayfish has three sets of chromosomes. Most animals have just two sets.

4 killed, 220+ injured as 5 buildings collapse in 6.4 Taiwan quake (VIDEOS)

A 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck the east coast of Taiwan, causing a hotel and several other buildings to collapse. At least four people were killed and more than 220 others injured, while about 145 remain missing.

The epicenter of the quake was reportedly 10km deep, some 22km east-northeast of Hualien City, the US Geological Service (USGS) reported. The initial 6.4 quake, which struck at 11:50pm local time, was followed by a number of aftershocks, with at least four measuring five points and higher on the Richter scale, the USGS data shows.

As of 9:00am Wednesday, the Central Disaster Response Center counted four deaths and 225 injuries in Hualien….

 How the Horrific 1918 Flu Spread Across America

The toll of history’s worst epidemic surpasses all the military deaths in World War I and World War II combined. And it may have begun in the United States

Haskell County, Kansas, lies in the southwest corner of the state, near Oklahoma and Colorado. In 1918 sod houses were still common, barely distinguishable from the treeless, dry prairie they were dug out of. It had been cattle country—a now bankrupt ranch once handled 30,000 head—but Haskell farmers also raised hogs, which is one possible clue to the origin of the crisis that would terrorize the world that year. Another clue is that the county sits on a major migratory flyway for 17 bird species, including sand hill cranes and mallards. Scientists today understand that bird influenza viruses, like human influenza viruses, can also infect hogs, and when a bird virus and a human virus infect the same pig cell, their different genes can be shuffled and exchanged like playing cards, resulting in a new, perhaps especially lethal, virus….

Cape Town braces for civil unrest as city’s water crisis continues to worsen

The picturesque port city of Cape Town, South Africa has long had the distinction of being one of the world’s top tourist destinations. But now, the city is on track to top another list it doesn’t want to be included in: The first major city in the modern era to have its water supply chain switched off.

The city is experiencing a record-low water drought and city officials say soon they may have to take extraordinary steps to restrict water usage.

Experts say this kind of drought only comes once in 300 years. Dam water levels are dangerously low, at an average of 25 percent. In some areas, levels are dropping by as much as 1 percent a day….

100k times narrower than paper: Indian scientists say they created ‘world’s thinnest material’

Indian scientists say they’ve managed to create the world’s thinnest material, measuring 100,000 times narrower than a sheet of paper. It could be used for next-generation batteries and coatings which absorb ultraviolet rays.

The new material measures just one nanometer in thickness. To put its size into perspective, a human hair is about 80,000 nanometers wide, while the approximate diameter of human DNA is 2.5 nanometers.

It was created by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar, using Magnesium diboride, a compound of boron, The Hindu BusinessLine reported.

“We prepared boron-rich nanosheets by an extremely simple method, which merely involves dissolving a boride compound in water and letting it recrystallize for just the right duration of time,” Dr. Kabeer Jasuja of the university’s Department of Chemical Engineering told India Science Wire….

Chile sex abuse letter suggests Pope Francis knew of ‘cover-up’ in 2015

Pope Francis is under fire for his handling of a clerical sexual abuse scandal. A report has emerged saying the pontiff was handed a letter from a Chilean abuse victim detailing his ordeal and a cover-up of alleged crimes.

In the letter, seen by AP, Juan Carlos Cruz says he is a victim of cleric Fernando Karadima’s abuse in the 1980s, detailing the kissing and fondling he claims to have suffered.

Additionally, Cruz accuses Karadima’s fellow priest Juan Barros (whom Francis appointed to lead the Diocese of Osorno in 2015) of witnessing the horrific, humiliating abuse and ignoring it. Bishop Barros has repeatedly denied witnessing the abuse or covering it up.

Cruz alleged in his letter that Barros himself would be fondled by Karadima, once a prominent Chilean cleric who was sanctioned by the Vatican in 2011 for abusing minors and ordered to live a life of prayer and penance. He recalled how Karadima would kiss Barros and fondle his genitals, and then do the same with younger priests and boys. Cruz claimed that young priests and seminarians would fight to sit next to Karadima to be fondled as well….

2 civilians killed, 13 injured in Damascus mortar attacks – report

Two civilians were killed and 13 others wounded on Monday after shelling attacks by armed groups which targeted Damascus and its suburbs, SANA reports. Armed groups in some areas of Eastern Ghouta fired mortar shells on Bab Touma neighborhood and the Mariamite Cathedral in Damascus, claiming the life of a woman and causing injuries to four citizens and material damage, according to Damascus police command. Two other shells fell on al-Ameen Street in al-Shaghour neighborhood, and another shell landed in al-Dwila’a neighborhood, causing material damage to properties. One civilian was killed and nine others were injured when a mortar shell fell in the vicinity of the police hospital in the Harasta area, according to the report.

 


 

Robots gone wild: Scientists have duty to protect mankind from artificial intelligence

The clock is ticking for the world of science to take the necessary steps to protect mankind from the deleterious effects of artificial intelligence, which is increasing by leaps and bounds.

As someone who is old enough to remember a world without the internet and smartphones, I am also young enough to wonder where the human race is heading as computers ‘evolve’ into the unchartered territory of artificial intelligence (AI).

For example, a recent report by AP shows that in an increasing number of local and state courtrooms around America, “judges are now guided by computer algorithms before ruling whether criminal defendants can return to everyday life, or remain locked up awaiting trial.”

The report went to say that “AI is reshaping, if not eliminating, some of judges’ most basic tasks — many of which can still have enormous consequences for the people involved.”….

Turmoil in Asia as stocks plunge in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai

Major markets in Asia plunged after Monday’s overnight sell-off on Wall Street. At one point, the benchmark Nikkei 225 index plummeted 7%, the biggest one-day drop since 1990, before recovering slightly to close 4.7% down at 21,610.24 points.

In a trading horror story, the boards in Hong Kong, Seoul and Shanghai all turned red with the Hang Seng Index ending up in free fall. At the close, it was more than 5%  down at 30,595.42 , while the Shanghai Composite Index dropped 3.4% to 3,370.65, its biggest single-day decline for nearly two years.

The rout continued in Singapore, where the Straits Times Index edged down 2.20% to close at 3,406.38…..
