Musk fails to discuss the data used by algorithms to determine the parameters used to make decisions. For example, the results from fairly straightforward Bayesian machine learning algorithms depend on the data used in the training steps. Without that data the algorithms are fairly limited in understanding how topics are making it to a given user's timeline.
It is not just the tax payers in Denver who will pay for this; it is tax payers across the country. The costs associated with insuring against the risks of having a police department will grow.
Do Russian soldiers wear dog tags or have name tags on their uniforms? If the condition of a soldier's remains mean that the face is recognizable then other forms of identification should be more reliable.
This is the same Georgia that allows school principals to ban books so that people who are offended can go around librarians trying to make information available to students. If that is not censorial enough for you Georgia has also passed a bill that prohibits teaching "divisive concepts" such as acknowledging racism. There is plenty of hypocrisy in this state, but election years really bring it out in its full glory.
When I went through basic training many (many) years ago stress breaks in leg bones was something being studied. My company took part in the study, and we were part of the control group using the older approach to basic training where the marching under load started early and then let up a little bit before increasing. The other control group had the heavy loads on the soldiers later in the cycle.
This is something that has been concern to the military for a long time. Any medical professional making off the cuff remarks without being aware of the studies that have taken place is not all that professional.
Your concerns would probably have a greater impact if you could be bothered to address something (anything) that Timothy wrote rather than focus on Timothy himself. Hearing a counter point as to why his examples are over blown would be great, but just whining about "hyperbole" is just another form of exaggeration.
If Monster gets the word Wasatch in its portfolio associated with a food item then the entire state of Utah has just been put on watch. That alone should keep Monster's lawyers busy until the Second Coming. If there is any justice in the world they should all be cast into outer darkness by that time.
You are right, if the FAA makes an error then it is catastrophic. That is the reason they should be forthcoming with their evidence of potential harm. As a federal oversight agency that safeguards people's lives they should be diligent in gathering evidence and open to sharing their evidence in order to be transparent about their decisions. To make a decision that is contrary to the experience and practice of other countries and agencies without demonstrating harm is capricious and erodes confidence in an important agency.
Some Hollywood executives getting bent out of shape because they cannot control the snapshots of a few pieces of scrap paper that are associated with the origins of a 25 year old movie is one of the most Hollywood things imaginable.
To add to the fun, Congressperson Jody Hice (GA-10), has gone on record to say that Muslims should not enjoy the privilege of 1st amendment protections. He has also gone on record saying that social media corporations, like Facebook and Twitter, are violating the 1st amendment rights of conservatives, and they should be forced to change their moderation policies. It would be delightful to hear how he would approach this particular issue. By delightful, I mean utterly pathetic and depressing to learn he is a leader within the government of the USA.
It is clearly a distraction and a drain on resources. I hope this gets sorted out soon. I have always been impressed that you highlight people like this when they clearly communicate what they are capable of doing.
If DeSantis doesn't want to look like he only respects the rights of people he agrees with, he'll need to keep cops from exercising their discretion and arresting people protesting against unequal treatment by law enforcement.
It looks quite clear that Gov DeSantis has ambitions to run for national office as his next step up the political ladder. Political discourse has degenerated to the point where there is no penalty for unequal treatment nor for standing on any kind of consistent set of principles other than taking care of his own. In fact, his Party has a special word, RINO, for anybody who does such a thing.
One day, when I sit down to write a bot that automatically sends out legal notices, I am going to make sure to include an "if" statement that checks to see if the recipient is the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I would have thought that would be obvious.
While the previous administration was pointing and shouting at the potential evils of tik tok a good number of their supporters are running from the federales because they were sold out by their other apps (including Parler). The location data that was harvested during the riots at the US Capitol building turned out to have the same privacy flaws. Of course few in power want to point out the systemic flaws that led to this, but quite a few are more than happy to entertain those who are more concerned about bizarre and grotesquely contorted theories involving Bill Gates, 5G, and vaccines that do the same thing.
I read the phrase "Red Hat Insurrection," and my first reaction was to avoid reading further to avoid some screed about the changes coming to CENTOS. Until now I have managed to keep separate the whole MAGA hat thing and RedHat.
This is a perfect demonstration of the US criminal justice system. They were able to put a system in place that they believed would predict which children were at greatest risk to engage in criminal activity. Their solution was to just go ahead and treat them like criminals rather than intervene and help people they believed were in the greatest need. Rather than treat the problem they decided to just keep feeding a system that destroys lives rather than prevents any kind of relief.
The decision to use Epik and DDoSGuard makes it problematic for journalists to monitor the site and document what is being posted. A number of US politicians used the site to share posts, and now Parler is doing their best to create a firewall to keep out people smart enough to stay away from the honey pot.
Many of the people who have actively worked to coddle the carriers have also spread disinformation about section 230 protections. They have explicitly called out platforms for not allowing all speech while simultaneously providing cover for the corporations that restrict access to the platforms they claim are required to host all speech.
