http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/how-scientists-search-for-aliens-is-getting-more-advanced-than-ever

"This next-generation facility will be the first telescope capable of detecting Earth-level leakage from nearby stars," Siemion says.

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence is bigger than ever, thanks to a big cash infusion from RUSSIAN billionaire Yuri Milner. That $100 million, decade-long Breakthrough Listen initiative could put us on the cusp of finding out if we're alone in the universe.

"I was hoping that we would eventually be able to compare such spectra with ‘Dyson sphere' candidates if any were ever found in infrared surveys," Witteborn says. "Dyson spheres would presumably need to radiate efficiently in the thermal infrared and so would be relatively featureless, but would exhibit a smooth peak in this region."

One researcher has an intriguing idea for looking for aliens by peering into our own backyard. While admitting it's a far-out possibility, Abraham 'Avi' Loeb of Harvard University suggests that we could look for lights or exhaust from a probe passing through. We just, of course, had a close encounter with an alien asteroid, so we're getting visited by interstellar object.

They are coming. They are among us.

I'll take 1805 over our modern pussy era. Back then, men were real men and not the soy sucking Hillary lovers of today. It was a time of wonderful wars and Empires, and Kings ruling with absolute power. Peace was laughed at as decadent and ridiculous and people enjoyed nothing more than to kill. Competition and greed marked the rise of the west, while globalization and peace have made the human race WEAK. No wonder the socialist and Jews have always been the ones pushing anti-imperialist agendas.

>In a new report, the human rights group criticizes European governments for supporting efforts by the Libyan coastguard to prevent migrants crossing the Mediterranean and returning them camps in Libya.

>"Hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants trapped in Libya are at the mercy of Libyan authorities, militias, armed groups and smugglers often working seamlessly together for financial gain. Tens of thousands are kept indefinitely in overcrowded detention centers where they are subjected to systematic abuse," said John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International's Europe Director.

If the goal is stopping risky sea crossings, wouldn't it be make more sense for the EU to just go all-out sinking the migrant boats, leave the survivors to drown and make sure would-be migrants are aware of this policy change?

If they're already desperate enough to cross an ocean in a rickety boat, don't you think they'll find an alternative that's just as risky, if not moreso?

It's not often that one can use Econ 101 to describe things, but here one can describe it in terms of a broken market: normally, as the cost of a product (migration) increases the quantity demanded (number of migrants) decreases. However, the supply and demand curves have upper and lower bounds -- there is a point at which regardless of the risk of migration there will be migrants -- regardless of the price of the product there will be those desperate enough to demand it, even if the product is not offered on a legal marketplace (drugs, medicine, electricity, food, and weapons during wartime).

The goal of smart policy in such cases is to repair the market -- put such people back on the legitimate supply-and-demand curve. That way you can regulate the product (e.g. migration) using ordinary passive economic techniques.

So before you ancaps and lolbertarians go around saying "Kill the migrants," ask yourself, "Will this help to repair a broken marketplace?"

TORONTO – Ontario is conducting an economic study to quantify the cost of anti-black racism as part of a broad new plan.

The anti-black racism strategy, released Thursday, sets out how the provincial government will try to address disparities for black Ontarians in the child welfare, education and justice systems.

The government says the plan aims to tackle the intergenerational impacts of slavery, a history of racial stigmatization and ongoing systemic racism.

It includes doing an economic study, developing targets in child welfare, education and justice, developing anti-black racism programs for government employees and institutions, and creating public awareness initiatives.

The government says black children are more likely to be in foster care and enrolled in lower academic streams, while black men are more likely than white men to interact with the justice system and black women are more likely than white women to be unemployed.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says the anti-black racism strategy makes the government accountable in the fight to eliminate discrimination and inequality that Ontario’s black community endures.

Well thank goodness for that, Canadians should never forget the millions of black slaves working the arctic cotton plantations before they were liberated by the Union Army

Boston University’s biolab is finally approved to start its research on the world’s deadliest microorganisms in hopes of finding treatment options.

The Boston Public Health Commission has given its final approval for BU’s National Emerging Infectious Disease Laboratories (NEIDL) to conduct its research at the highest biosafety level, BSL-4.

Microbes in a BSL-4 lab, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are “dangerous and exotic,” and pose a high risk of infections, which can be fatal. Examples include Ebola and Marburg viruses.

It’s been a long road for the BU lab to reach this level. The school has faced years of “scrutiny by regulatory agencies and city, state, and federal officials,” according to university publication BU Today. Now, with the health commission’s approval, the researchers are excited to get to work.

“As we have seen over the past several years, we are all vulnerable to potentially devastating infectious diseases that may have originated halfway across the globe,” Gloria Waters, BU vice president and associate provost for research, told BU Today.

“With the opening of the NEIDL’s BSL-4 lab, BU is poised to establish itself as a national leader in fighting microbial systems and infectious diseases,” she continued. “The work that will be carried out here will bring benefit and relief in the form of vaccines, treatments, and cures to people in Boston, the United States, and around the world.”

The health commission confirmed to Metro that it issued a letter of approval and a permit to NEIDL. “As a regulator of biological laboratories in Boston, BPHC carried out a rigorous review process of the NEIDL’s BSL-4 application, including a review of safety and security protocols, prior to issuing the BSL-4 permit," a commission spokesperson said in a statement.

Excellent security there. What, do they have their lab secured by a locking doorknob, with the -70 freezer secured with a $5 lock from Wal mart? If the grad student even remembers to lock up at the end of the day.

In contrast, the CDC is surrounded by a 6 foot wall and 24 hour security. Even getting to their driveway takes a written authorization, approval from Major League Baseball and 4 out of 5 dentists who chew gum, with a stamp of approval from the Holy Roman church and Donald Trump.

Hop the wall? Even if you can find the right lab basement, you will be shot by DHS agents LONG before you reach it.

You can't even step foot on Plum Island without an employee badge. Miss the last ferry? Get comfortable. You're staying the night.

But you're right. Let's stick an ebola lab on a college campus. I mean, starving students from Iran, Syria and Yemen can never be recruited by ISIS, right?

Blacks prefer to smoke their drugs if they have a choice. They'd be more likely to offer a small amount to one of their drug customers to test for them, rather than try it first themselves, or maybe try to "rock it up" like crack cocaine first.

White people and Hispanics like to snort more powders than blacks do. Just saying, not that it really matters.

An algorithm deduced the sexuality of people on a dating site with up to 91% accuracy raising tricky ethical questions

http://archive.is/2017.09.08-023213/https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/sep/07/new-artificial-intelligence-can-tell-whether-youre-gay-or-straight-from-a-photograph

The study from Stanford University – which found that a computer algorithm could correctly distinguish between gay and straight men 81% of the time, and 74% for women – has raised questions about the biological origins of sexual orientation, the ethics of facial-detection technology and the potential for this kind of software to violate people’s privacy or be abused for anti-LGBT purposes. The machine intelligence tested in the research, which was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and first reported in the Economist, was based on a sample of more than 35,000 facial images that men and women publicly posted on a US dating website. The researchers, Michal Kosinski and Yilun Wang, extracted features from the images using deep neural networks, meaning a sophisticated mathematical system that learns to analyze visuals based on a large dataset

The research found that gay men and women tended to have “gender-atypical” features, expressions and “grooming styles”, essentially meaning gay men appeared more feminine and vice versa. The data also identified certain trends, including that gay men had narrower jaws, longer noses and larger foreheads than straight men, and that gay women had larger jaws and smaller foreheads compared to straight women. Human judges performed much worse than the algorithm, accurately identifying orientation only 61% of the time for men and 54% for women. When the software reviewed five images per person, it was even more successful – 91% of the time with men and 83% with women. Broadly, that means “faces contain much more information about sexual orientation than can be perceived and interpreted by the human brain” the authors wrote

Sorry to disappoint any snowflakes here, but sexuality is a mixture of things..Genes and hormones, but also how your brain grows in the womb at a critical juncture in the foetus's development...(first trimester).

Ask yourself, WHY did the number of gays/lesbians explode during the sixties? Was it because many just decided it was OK? OR, was it more likely, that during the 30s and 40s, when many potential parents were reaching sexual maturity/parentable age, our diets were deficient in many key ingredients, due to changing farming practices, and insufficient of particular foods in the diet, in part due to wars, depressions and the rise of NPK (Nitrogen,Potassium, Phosphorous) being used instead of wood-ash to fertilise the soil, which contains the mineral residue of the wood and/or coal, that has been used in the fire for cooking... That puts nutrients back in the soil, and thus the trees and leaves and plants and animals that eat those plants (including US) get our 90 nutrients or NOT... Of course people could just bury their heads in the sands and not try to find a cogent reason for the remarkable rise in the lesbian/gay population in recent decades... BUT our kids diets are appalling, with few women knowing how to cook a meal for their kids from scratch, or allowing them to pick and choose what they eat out of some snowflake mentality to be a child's friend, instead of a parent, and rely on takeaways, dining out, or only eating the best cuts of meat, rather than the offal which has been part of human's diets for at least 240,000-250,000 years. Our bodies were designed at a time when the soil was rich in metallic minerals, and is now all but devoid of them... WE are sleep-walking into a medical disaster... Dr. Joel D. Wallach (NMD, DVM, BSc and Nobel Prize Nominee) must be pulling his 77 year old air out...(See his You-Tube videos)

There are few facts contained in your post, yet you drafted it in an authoritative tone. Why?

I could say something like "sorry to disappoint you, the real reason homosexuality began to massively increase during the '60s and '70s was the greatly expanded use of estrogen-mimicking chemicals in farming and industrial production."

But it would be dishonest for me to come off as though it were fact, wouldnt it? I wouldnt actually *know* it to be true beyond doubt. Unless you're in your early '60s you werent even sexually mature during that era, which means you have no firsthand experience with the many social factors involved in the increased homosexual behavior and lifestyles.

Arguments like yours are invariably used as a shell game to shift the point of discussion from sexuality to that gender: "Sorry to disappoint you snowflakes but sexuality is a spectrum not binary, therefore gender also" and all that dishonest jive and jazz.

Speculate all you want, but don't "snowflake-sexuality-minerals-misattribution" to us. Your motives are questionable and your logic is lacking.

Thanks.

>Diners at top-tier restaurants often pay extra for items like foraged wild mushrooms, dry-farmed produce, and tisanes made out of freshly picked herbs. These items often appear on the menu of Berkeley's famous Chez Panisse, where downstairs guests can enjoy their meal in view of a comforting wood fire.

>Before the dawn of agriculture in the Near East, some hunter-gatherers surprisingly enjoyed similar comforts. A recent years-long excavation of a 14,600–12,000-year-old site in Jordan unearthed the remains of elaborate stone buildings, a fire pit, artworks, stone tools, and ample food remains from what appears to have been a healthy, balanced diet.

>The site, Shubayqa 1, which lies northeast of Amman, is described in the journal Scientific Reports. The research sheds light not only on the transition from foraging to farming, but also on the Natufian culture that lived there during this important time in human history.

>"The Natufian culture is characterized by the appearance of solid stone buildings — indeed, some of the earliest in the world," Tobias Richter, one of the study’s authors and an associate professor at the University of Copenhagen, told Seeker.

>One oval-shaped, semi-subterranean Natufian structure at the site featured a flagstone-paved floor. Maintaining the structure's look and functionality, the builders lined the fire pit with carefully placed stones.

>"They also domesticated the dog as early as 14,000 years ago, which still represents some of the best evidence for the early domestication of the dog," Richter said.

>He added that the Natufians were among the first societies to product art, which consisted of usually carved bone and stone figures, as well as incised stones. They also started to produce large numbers of grinding, pounding, and pulverizing tools.

>Richter and his team dated more than twenty samples from different layers of Shubayqa 1, making it one of the best and more accurately dated Natufian sites in the world. The dating, directed by Elisabetta Boaretto of Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science, involved accelerator mass spectrometry, which can reveal the amount of carbon-14 in a sample down to a single atom.

>Based on this and other research, it is now believed that the Natufians lived in what is now Israel, Lebanon, and Syria, in addition to Jordan — a region commonly known as the Levant.

>Previously it was thought that the Natufians first settled in the Mount Carmel and Galilee region before later fanning out. The new research suggests that the Natufians instead inhabited a variety of places at about the same time, demonstrating their versatility at adapting to different habitats.

>Interestingly, some of the first modern human migrants out of Africa went to the Levant, perhaps attracted by its diverse array of animal and plant life. Certain people today therefore have Natufian ancestry.

>"Some genetic traits that we know exist in Natufian populations can also be found in modern European populations and in northeast African populations," Richter explained.

>The Levant later gave rise to the world's three primary monotheistic religions — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — that possibly have their very early roots in Natufian culture. Richter said these people buried their dead, often including grave goods with the human remains.
...
>>
>"Some have argued that this is evidence for the presence of ritual specialists — shamans — or some kind of group leaders," Richter said. "What seems clear is that the Natufians had developed a complex symbolic cosmology and treated their dead with respect."

>Their diet was equally complex. The remains at Shubayqa 1 and at other Natufian sites show that these people hunted birds, gazelle, and other animals. A starchy staple appears to have been the tubers of the sea club-rush plant. The tubers are fibrous, and therefore require flaking or grinding to be palatable, but can reward diners with a pleasant, sweet taste.

>"In addition to tubers, they relied on a wide range of other wild plants, such as cruciferous vegetables, wild cereals, and legumes," Richter said, adding that he and his team are currently writing another paper concerning the Natufian diet.

>The emerging picture of Natufian life throws a wrench into a popular theory about how agriculture began. The theory holds that as populations in the Fertile Crescent grew, their hunter-gatherer way of life became unsustainable and they increasingly adopted agriculture.

>"Our evidence certainly suggests that the Natufian culture was more variable in terms of the habitats it was able to exploit, and in terms of its plant subsistence economy.", "it is problematic to treat a historical outcome as something that is inevitable."

>Scientists do not yet know precisely where agriculture first began, and what culture initiated this way of life that forever changed humanity.

>The answers could come from Richter's latest excavation. He and his team are now working at another settlement, called Shubayqa 6, which lies about a half a mile east of Shubayqa 1. The scientists, he said, are examining the changes in the use of plants and between between the hunter-gatherer period and the Neolithic way of life, which is characterized by farming, domestication of animals for food, and the establishment of villages.

>Two US F-22 stealth fighters intercepted two Russian aircraft Wednesday after the Russian jets crossed the Euphrates River in Syria, flying east of the "de-confliction line" that is supposed to separate Russian and US-led coalition aircraft operating over Syria, two US defense officials told CNN.

>The US jets fired warning flares during the intercept of the two Russian Su-25 close air support jets according to the officials after they crossed the de-confliction line multiple times.
One of the officials said a Russian Su-35 fighter jet was also involved and that the aerial encounter lasted "several minutes."

>The official said that coalition officers called their Russian counterparts about the incident via the pre-established de-confliction hotline.

>US Air Forces Central Command which oversees air operations over Syria later confirmed the incident to CNN.

>After crossing the de-confliction line, the Russian Su-25s "were promptly intercepted by two F-22A Raptors providing air cover for partner ground forces conducting operations to defeat ISIS," Air Forces Central Command spokesman Lt. Col. Damien Pickart told CNN.

>"The F-22s conducted multiple maneuvers to persuade the Su-25s to depart our de-conflicted airspace, including the release of chaff and flares in close proximity to the Russian aircraft and placing multiple calls on the emergency channel to convey to the Russian pilots that they needed to depart the area," he added.

You are terrified because you are a coward who must diminutive others to shield himself from the realization that you really stand up for nothing but your own interest, and that you also lack the testicular fortitude to do anything different even if you had the character to change and take personal responsibility.

I am not subject to your validation, cock sucker.

When you're the US government and your US offices burn US electricity, your electric bill is part of your US debt. The reason you have to pass a budget every year is so the bills get paid. Bills for a service already rendered, or required to renew at a deadline to continue a contract at a certain rate, are debt.

https://www.rferl.org/a/moscow-court-set-issue-verdict-bribery-trial-russian-economy-minister-ulyukayev/28919411.html

A Moscow court has found former Russian Economy Minister Aleksei Ulyukayev guilty of taking a "large bribe" in a high-profile corruption case and sentenced him to eight years in a strict-regime prison.

Ulyukayev called the sentence "unfair" as he was led from the courtroom in handcuffs after the December 15 hearing, and another prominent former government minister tweeted that the verdict was "horrible."

Judge Larisa Semyonova read out the verdict and sentence after a delay of some 90 minutes in starting the hearing. The court barred media from broadcasting the hearing live.

"Ulyukayev knew and was aware of the character of his actions," Semyonova said during the reading of the verdict, which lasted nearly three hours.

Ulyukayev is the highest-ranking official to be arrested since the Stalin era, and the case underscored rifts in Russia's ruling elite ahead of an election that seems certain to hand President Vladimir Putin a six-year term that could be his last.

Ukyukayev was accused of taking a $2 million bribe from Igor Sechin -- the CEO of state oil giant Rosneft and a longtime associate of Putin -- in exchange for his ministry's approval of the sale of regional oil company Bashneft to Rosneft.

On the one hand it's good to see corrupt officials getting harsh sentences, shit like this should be treated like treason imo. On the other hand I have a feeling not all officials are treated equally in such cases, since others are covered by other corrupt officials that now hand out these sentences.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42277309
A police officer charged with the murder of an unarmed man in the US state of Arizona has been found not guilty.

Philip Brailsford shot and killed 26-year-old Daniel Shaver in the hallway of a hotel in early 2016.

Bodycam footage of the incident, released after the verdict, showed Mr Shaver on his knees asking officers not to shoot him just before he was killed.

Mr Brailsford was acquitted of murder and a lesser manslaughter charge.

Mr Shaver was shot five times with a semi-automatic rifle as he crawled towards the officers, sobbing.

Prosecutors argued that the officer had responded appropriately, according to his training, when Mr Shaver reached towards his waistband - because he believed there was a concealed firearm there.

Lol he didn't have a twitchy finger because of contact stress, 5 shots in the chest is either an execution or a bona fide epileptic siezure.

The name of the game is Simon Says and what we learned from this story is to not play games with trigger happy cops. Just lay face down arms and legs out. Dont do shit! If they ask you to play games. Tell them to fuck off. "Come get me copper". Im not crawling on my hands and knees begging for my life to some power hungry piece of shit. Thats how you end up dead.
