EnochWalked: www.ynetnews.com/article/ryeiwsd00a "Tel Aviv rocked by apparent drone strike: one dead, 4 injured" "Residents living near US Embassy building report no siren warning ahead of explosion; homes shake, items break" Jul 19, 2024 4:43:35 GMT -6
EnochWalked: Doesn't Israel have enough instances of these drones captured now to create a wave of clones? They could launch them from a submarine, have some of them hit Israeli homes, and one go "off course" and land on Temple Mount? A plan for PM Ben Gvir? Jul 19, 2024 4:47:25 GMT -6
EnochWalked: He could order that a "temporary" radar station be placed on the Mount, for "national security" reasons, which the Israeli supreme court wouldn't be able to object to. He could even look like a defender of the Muslim "holy" sites, protecting them. Jul 19, 2024 4:50:06 GMT -6
EnochWalked: As it's just a radar station (rather than a rocket interceptor battery) it wouldn't be seen as an offensive military capability, which would desecrate the site. He could even concede that it should be manned by Arab Muslim citizens of Israel. Jul 19, 2024 4:52:17 GMT -6
EnochWalked: Over time, though, the installation could be widened to include a temporary compact barracks, the size of a shipping containing, with its own Muslim prayer room. Then, if some Jewish troops get stationed there, they could hold prayer services in it. Jul 19, 2024 4:57:57 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.ynetnews.com/article/syedwjp00a "President of ICJ accused Israel of 'ethnic cleansing by terror and organized massacres'". "international court opinion set to be released on Friday about Israel and the West Bank". More pressure for peace deal? Jul 19, 2024 19:28:07 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "expected to conclude that Israel occupies the West Bank in violation of international law." Of course the UN/ICJ are biased, but that doesn't mean that Israel never acts unjustly. (the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force) Jul 19, 2024 19:33:12 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.timesofisrael.com/blinken-iran-one-two-weeks-away-from-producing-enough-material-for-nuclear-weapon/ "Top diplomat stresses Tehran has not yet produced a nuke, which would take longer". A problem for the next administration? Trump nukes Iran? Jul 19, 2024 19:52:51 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog-july-19-2024/ "In bid to pressure PM, Gallant said weighing announcement that hostage deal within reach" "Ben Gvir call for annexing West Bank in response [to ICJ ruling]" Jul 19, 2024 19:54:06 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/doomsday-dinners-costco-sells-apocalypse-bucket-food-lasts-25-years-rcna162474 "The Readywise Emergency Food Bucket comes stuffed with 150 servings of meal from pasta Alfredo to apple cinnamon cereal for $79.99 online." Jul 20, 2024 0:17:18 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.ibs.re.kr/cop/bbs/BBSMSTR_000000000738/selectBoardArticle.do?nttId=24921 "New Technology to Control the Brain Using Magnetic Fields Developed" "Wireless Control of Brain Circuits with Potential to Modulate Emotions, Social Behaviors, & Appetite" Jul 20, 2024 0:19:14 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.theguardian.com/technology/article/2024/jul/20/cash-global-it-outage-cashless-society-dangers-payment-choice-alliance "Global IT outage shows dangers of cashless society" "if there is no alternative, then the whole thing can collapse around you" Jul 20, 2024 14:36:23 GMT -6
EnochWalked: spectrum.ieee.org/brain-computer-interface-graphene "Next-Gen Brain Implant Uses a Graphene Chip". There's still no evidence that covid vaccines contain graphene, but nevertheless this will make people even more suspicious of that inert chemical. Jul 20, 2024 17:43:08 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.politico.eu/article/united-nations-artificial-intelligence-policy-report-carme-artigas-paolo-benanti-mira-murati/ "Inside the United Nations’ AI policy grab. A forthcoming report makes the case for unified global AI governance" Jul 20, 2024 17:44:19 GMT -6
EnochWalked: I think the UN already have a body which claims to be in charge of "first contact" if aliens were to arrive (or announce themselves) on Earth. Perhaps the UN will let the AI speak for humanity? Or maybe they'll ask for "governance" of the world's nukes. Jul 20, 2024 17:45:49 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "all-star advisory group featuring thinkers such as Spain's ex-AI minister Carme Artigas, Pope Francis' AI guru Paolo Benanti, and OpenAI chief technologist Mira Murati". Of course they need a seat for the False Prophet to exercise control too. Jul 20, 2024 17:47:10 GMT -6
EnochWalked: 'the G7’s “Hiroshima AI Process” created voluntary guiding principles on generative AI'. I'm sure Japan wished that there was a bureaucratic "Hiroshima Process" for nuclear weapons back in 1945, so that they could veto any deployment. Not realistic, sadly. Jul 20, 2024 17:48:38 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "AI capability improvement seems like it is flattening out" according to an "anonymous former diplomat". GPT3 was released in 2020, and GPT4 in 2023, three years later. I don't know why people are surprised that GPT5 hasn't been released yet, in 2024. Jul 20, 2024 17:52:42 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/world/americas/cuba/article290249799.html "A stunning 10% of Cuba’s population — more than a million people — left the island between 2022 and 2023". Nine more exoduses, two years each, means 18 years left. ::) Jul 20, 2024 18:21:35 GMT -6
EnochWalked: manifold.markets/0482/will-ai-pass-video-turing-test-by-2 People on this site are trying to predict when a Deep Fake will be able to trick an average human into thinking that they are talking to another human in a video call. 83% chance by 2030. Jul 20, 2024 22:58:08 GMT -6
