looks bogus to me. story only seems to come from one place, bitterwinter, a magazine for religious liberty in china. ccp claims it destroyed this one buddha to prevent commercialisation of religion. since there only appears to be one statue destroyed i don;t think anything has changed in china. it was destroyed feb 2019 and only now being touted in the news.

Real Engineering | The economics of nuclear energy

Comment: 14 days ago

interesting vid. nuclear is a political nightmare and when politicians are given decisions they no eff all about it's going to cost tax payers money. case in point hinckley c, it's way over budget (£25bn+) and the strike price was criminally negotiated (One analyst at Liberium Capital described the strike price as 'economically insane' in October 2013: "as far as we can see this makes Hinkley Point the most expensive power station in the world).

add to that the fact the the uk has no engineers to build it so relies on the french (who we've just pissed off a lot) and the chinese (who we've just pissed off massively)

don't know much about epstein but enough. however, the idea that someone with 600million dollars would not buy things like islands seems to be contradicted by this guy's execrable boss, peter thiel :

Seasteading

On April 15, 2008, Thiel pledged $500,000 to the newly-created nonprofit Seasteading Institute,[86] directed by Patri Friedman, whose mission is "to establish permanent, autonomous ocean communities to enable experimentation and innovation with diverse social, political, and legal systems."[87][88] At one of the institute's conferences, he described seasteading as "one of the few technological frontiers that has the promise to create a new space for human freedom."[89] In 2011, Thiel gave $1.25 million to the Seasteading Institute,[90][91] but resigned from its board the same year.[92] In a 2017 interview with The New York Times, Thiel said seasteads are "not quite feasible from an engineering perspective" and "still very far in the future".[93][94]

Led By Donkeys | Johnson and Cummings: A timeline of failure

Comment: 39 days ago

Johnson and his spad are responsible for over 60,000 deaths. And with signs that people are susceptible to multiple indections of covid and that they could get worse with each infection means their dessertion of duty could kill millions.

They deserve to be in the dock at the icc.

A Different Bias | Boris Johnson says No-Deal Brexit is a very good option

Comment: 39 days ago

That's to misunderstand so called progress. At any point none of a series of options may have a majority, so like a referendum you either go for a change with a majority or do not change. The uk already has a deal so that should be the default option.

The real issue is project brexit is built on lies and misinformation. And those willing to lie and misinform are now running the shit show.

having worked for some time in data analysis and ml i can honestly say that artificial intelligence will be a big problem.....but nowhere near as big a problem as artificial stupidity. there are far too many 'experts' who have done a course on tensorflow and start building systems.
