What's your plan if Trump wins in November?
  • Don't underestimate the US military, as an ally. They are primarily younger, and the upper echelons are educated and all take their oath very seriously, to defend the Constitution, from enemies foreign and domestic. Of course there will be factions that will stick to Trump, like certain national guards, but that will fracture command and weaken our ability to react internationally. The military understand those implications, the potential literal end of the world. In the end, they push the button, not the president. The lower ranks have no desire to fight American civilians either, it's antithetical to everything they are taught, and the age range is generally people in their 20's and 30's.I trust a Marine, a soldier, an airman, a seaman heheh, coast guard too, oh and the spacemen, way more than a cop, to do the right thing.

  • Video appears to show gang-rape of Afghan woman in a Taliban jail
  • In their culture the woman and her family are blamed if she is 'disgraced'. Her family is ostracized by other families in the community, making it harder for the men to find or keep jobs and do business, and the social connections of the mother's or other women in that family will be shunned making it difficult to find support during times of distress like illness, pregnancy and births, and even aquirimg food. Marrying off kids to other families will become more difficult if not impossible potentially ending the family line. The community support centers, or mosques, will turn them away. Siblings and relatives will distance themselves. If you want to destroy a family, destroy their women.

    In childish terms, they now have cooties, 'ew get away from me'. I don't put it that way to be insensitive, I only intend to help some understand. Kids have a way of getting to the core of our social rules in order to understand how to navigate them.

  • How many have found practical uses for large language text models in your real life?
  • I use it as a way to rewrite emails to sound more professional, especially when I'm too lazy to word good, or I'm mad at the person I'm emailing. I can say what I really want and have AI tone it down, or smarten it up.

    I use it a lot for helping structure written reports. I can't use exactly what it spits out, of course, but it helps me get an idea of what reads well and what doesn't. It's made me a better writer, I'm still bad, but getting better.

    Helps with trouble shooting common or obscure IT issues in a pinch, not always right, but tends to point me the right direction. It's great at reminding me about steps I skipped over. Also helps explain underlying technical causes.

    I use it to explain certain industries, sciences, and technical reasons behind specific technologies I don't have enough experience with, medical, biotech, IT, industrial, chemistry etc. Why would they use this vs that, what are reasons why they would or world not.

    Jargon translator! If you want to learn a subject but you're eyes glaze over at all of the jargon, ask an AI. I feel like there isn't a topic I can't learn now. If I don't understand something I just copy and paste it in and say Explain. Anything I still don't get I can ask for more details or a comprehensive breakdown. There isn't a level of abstraction it can't get to. Works just as well in reverse like when I want to quickly turn my explanation into something someone else will understand. Cross department communication is much easier, same for explaining something up the chain. My favorite is to have it explain things to the execs in layman terms.

    Using AI feels like having my own smart...thing .alien .gnome by my side, or an extra lobe in my brain. I feel like I'm making new connections and learning faster than I would have without it. I think a big part of that has been my initial double checking ALL of it's answers. That gave me a good feel for it's weaknesses and strengths, when to doubt it, double check, or know when it's just saying what sounds correct. I started using it day one every day, it's definitely improved but still has a ways to go.

    Finally, simple scripts. Anything more than that and I end up wasting too much time debugging.

    Bedtime stories. Kids list anything they want in the story, as silly as they can come up with, and in seconds we have a short story to giggle to.

    There are probably more, but those are the ones that came to mind. I want to list the things it's absolutely terrible at too but another time.

    Edit: typos

  • Do billionaires work monday to friday like all 9-5s?
  • Financial advisors for the Uber rich. I remember hearing an interview of one lab or this American life or.. Something...I can't remember it was years ago, but anyway she described what it was like. They don't use passports, they would call her to find bracelets they lost in taxis, it didn't sound like they were working at all. I don't remember if she went into their work schedule, but financial advisors are treated like baby sitters, or at least she was.

    I thought that might be a good place to start, I'm sure some of them have written books about it, or done more interviews.

  • To serve his country, Donald Trump should leave the race | Editorial Board
  • Absolutely. He's jealous that Putin can do whatever he wants and not get on trouble for it. No one is allowed to tell Putin he did anything wrong. Trump is a spoiled brat. "Putin can have people killed and not get in trouble, Waaahh! I Wana do that too!" That's as far as his thought process goes.

  • Researchers demonstrate that quantum entanglement and topology are inextricably linked

    For the first time, researchers have demonstrated the remarkable ability to perturb pairs of spatially separated yet interconnected quantum entangled particles without altering their shared properties.

    Researchers demonstrate that quantum entanglement and topology are inextricably linked

    The team hopes that this might become a powerful tool that paves the way for new quantum communication protocols that use topology as an alphabet for quantum information processing across entanglement-based channels.

    The findings reported in the article are crucial because researchers have grappled for decades with developing techniques to preserve entangled states. The fact that topology remains intact even as entanglement decays suggests a potentially new encoding mechanism that utilizes entanglement, even in scenarios with minimal entanglement where traditional encoding protocols would fail.

    Edit: Here is the quoted article link.

    And here's is the published paper.
