China’s space program is quickly becoming formidable… and potentially dangerous

Published

on

The world economy has been shifting in China’s favor for some time. Their military is arguably the most powerful overall in the world. Once considered a true third-world country, they’ve been able to mix elements of both worlds with intense poverty and lack of technology through much of the country while also having cutting edge tech and a booming economy in other areas.

What’s not often considered is their space program. We shouldn’t ignore it. Not only are they progressing faster than the United States or Russia, they’re also rumored to be working on space weapons. This video by Curious Droid barely scratches the surface; we’ll follow up with more on China’s space program in the near future. For now, just know it’s worth keeping our eyes on, as I’m sure the U.S government has been doing. At least I hope they have.

Twitter’s ‘Big Brother’ tactics revealed as they brag about seeing nude images in private messages

Twitters Big Brother tactics revealed as they brag about seeing nude images in private messages

We thought it was bad when Twitter employees described “shadow bans” on conservative users. It represented the type of secret censorship that keeps Americans in the dark. What we learn now from Project Veritas is that it gets much worse. It’s not just politics. It’s personal.

HIDDEN CAMERA: HUNDREDS of Twitter Employees Paid to View “Everything You Post Online” Including Private “Sex Messages”

https://www.projectveritas.com/2018/01/15/hidden-camera-hundreds-of-twitter-employees-paid-to-view-everything-you-post-online-including-private-sex-messages/(San Francisco) Project Veritas has released undercover footage of Twitter Engineers and employees admitting that Twitter employees view all of your private messages on their servers and analyze it to create a “virtual profile” of you which they sell to advertisers.

The footage features four current Twitter software engineers–Conrado Miranda, Clay Haynes, Pranay Singh, and Mihai Alexandru Florea.

Haynes, who was featured in part one of the Twitter exposé, admitted in a January 6, 2018 meeting that Twitter has hired hundreds employees with the express purpose of looking at these “d*ck pics,” stating:

Let’s be fair about this upfront. If you decide to put something online, you should expect zero privacy. It doesn’t matter how “private” something is supposed to be, including Twitter’s direct message feature. If it’s out there, someone has access to it and potentially eyeballs on it.

That’s not to excuse Twitter’s sins. This is a horrible practice for the sake of detailed big data they can use for advertisers. They are likely guilty of abusing their users’ trust just as users are guilty of being silly enough to think their online posts are truly private.

Personalized Artificial Intelligence: Project Pai hopes to let you do things for yourself without you

Personalized Artificial Intelligence Project Pai hopes to let you do things for yourself without you

Imagine having a digital “avatar” that could do things for you. It could interact how you interact, do things on your behalf, and possibly even replace you in certain situations. Sound impossible? It may not be for long.

Project PAI, which stands for Personalized Artificial Intelligence, hopes to build these avatars based upon your online interactions. It utilizes blockchain protocols to power the creation of a “virtual you” that you can unleash on the web and eventually through other venues.

Let’s fast-forward a bit with speculation. Could this ever be used to create an avatar that is so much like you, it replaces you completely? Could it be used to help grieving friends and family once you die? Could it sit in for you in meetings? The potential here is incredible, but it can also be scary. There was an episode of Dark Mirror that took it to the extreme, taking similar concepts and applying them to a synthetic body that replaced  a deceased husband.

Others, as you can watch in the video above, are even more skeptical about the potential this brings.

Help spread the hysteria: Create the next scary weather term and win the accolades of the climate cult.

Published

It used to be that wintertime was cold and summertime was hot. Then the climate cult decided that using words and phrases that made sense failed to galvanize people to fear ‘global cooling’ or ‘global warming and donate cash to Al Gore. Mundane terms like winter storm or even ‘nor’easter’ didn’t garner any notice so phrases such as ‘Polar Vortex’ or ‘Bomb cyclone’ had to be conjured up to grab attention.

Consider these reports about a recent winter storm:

[Washington Post] First, a monster ocean storm is taking shape, which pasted parts of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina with rare ice and snow early Wednesday. By Thursday, the exploding storm will, in many ways, resemble a winter hurricane, battering easternmost New England with potentially damaging winds in addition to blinding snow. Blizzard warnings have been issued for the Virginia Tidewater region up the coast to eastern Maine, including Ocean City, Atlantic City, eastern Long Island, Boston and Portland.

[Boston Herald]The powerful nor’easter barreling up the coast will “explode” tomorrow into bombogenesis — a cyclone of snow that could dump a foot on Greater Boston, meteorologists warn.

This used to be called ‘winter’ and people expected it to be cold and snowy, just like the summer was hot and humid. But alas, those everyday terms don’t scare anyone and worse yet they can’t get people to give up their liberty and purchase climate indulgences. Problem is, even labeling something an ‘exploding’ ‘monster ocean storm’ of the ‘bombogenesis’ variety and calling it a ‘cyclone of snow’ will only terrify people for a limited amount of time.

This is where we can help the climate cult terrorize a new generation, surrender their freedom and donate to them. Because if anything can stop a monstrous bomb cyclone exploding on the scene, it would be cold hard cash to pay Al Gore’s power bill.

So, how does one create a new scary weather term? Good question! Glad we asked it.

Well, first, it has to have some sort of word signifying an immense and sudden power impulse – such as ‘Bomb, exploding, etc.’ Of course, it must have something implying atmospheric turbulence and chaos brought on by climate change. Throw in an extra word denoting the Arctic region and look out for the grant avalanche.

So we will have three columns of the various terms to be combined to see which sound the scariest.

Column 1

Bomb
Blasting
Explode
Explosive
Annihilate
Blow up
Burst
Destroy
Nuclear
Hydrogen bomb
Dynamite
Shatter
Wither
Wreck
Detonate

Column 2

Hurricane
Tornado
Cyclone
Twister
Maelstrom
Torrent
Whirlwind

Column 3

Icy
Arctic
Freezing
Extreme
Siberian

Blizzard
Bitter
Frozen
Intense
Polar
Severe

 

We can also just coin new words combining terms for tropical weather for arctic maelstroms.

Blizzard + Hurricane Blizzarcane

Arctic + Tornado Arcnado

So have at. Who knows, by next year people could be running scared with new creations we created here!
