  • Top chess personalities slam ABC for questioning if chess is 'racist' [i.e. Australian Broadcasting Corporation]

    After an Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Sydney radio station posed the question if chess is racist because it’s customary for the white pieces to move first, Russian chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov and former Australian chess representative John Adams took to Twitter to slam the notion, calling it “bull—” and a waste of taxpayer dollars. Adams noted that ABC contacted him to make a comment on the segment, which is intended to run Wednesday. “They called me up and asked whether I was the John Adams involved in chess,” Adams told the Daily Telegraph. “Then they said with everything going on,...
  • World Mueller Report: Trump administration looks to drop charges against two Russian firms 'exploiting case' to obtain sensitive information

    Donald Trump’s department of justice is seeking to drop charges against two Russian firms indicted by Robert Mueller, amid concerns they are seeking to exploit the process to obtain sensitive information, it has been reported. The firms, Concord Management and Concord Consulting, were among 13 Russians and three entities charged by the special prosecutor in February 2018, claiming they tried to subvert the 2016 election and to support the Trump campaign. “The indictment alleges that the Russian conspirators want to promote discord in the United States and undermine public confidence in democracy,” Rod Rosenstein, then deputy attorney general, told reporters....

    NYT ^ | 5/5/2019 | By Michael Tackett and Maggie Haberman
    The president argued on Twitter that Mr. Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election — which found no conspiracy between Moscow and Mr. Trump’s campaign but did not exonerate the president on obstruction of justice — was conclusive and that Congress and the American people did not need to hear from Mr. Mueller. “Bob Mueller should not testify,” he said. “No redos for the Dems!”

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is ready to show up Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying Tuesday he plans to take a DNA test to find out whether he has more Native American heritage than she does. “I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham told “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.” Graham said he would reveal the results on the show in a couple weeks.

    Almost two weeks after buying a brand new computer, it's still giving me fits. They one they sold me is an HP with an AMD processor. Other than having trouble with Flash on Firefox it's been doing great, until Sat. night when, while watching a movie on YouTube, the computer suddenly froze up completely and rebooted. Then the next evening, while watching another long video on YT, it happened again. An online acquaintance has talked me into taking this back (I have one more day to do so) and switching it for a Dell with an Intel processor for practically...

    It was an intense competition between man and machine, and in the end, the machine took home the title. On Tuesday, Google's AlphaGo artificial intelligence program won the fifth and final round game of Go in a bout with Lee Sedol, one of the greatest Go players in the world. AlphaGo took four out of the five games in a contest that marked a noteworthy leap forward for computer smarts. That's not to say the computer was perfect. After losing the fourth game, AlphaGo hit a rough patch in game five, but continued on to defeat Lee, who resigned 280...

Their computer program, called AlphaGo, beat the European Go champion, Fan Hui, five games to zero...

The two networks were combined using a more conventional AI algorithm to look ahead in the game for possible moves. A scientific...

    Elliot Fineman, of the National Gun Victims Action Council, has penned an op ed on CNN.com calling for Obama to declare a "National State of Emergency for the Gun Violence Epidemic." He says this needs to "include universal REAL backgrounds checks, suspending the gun industry's immunity from lawsuits, monitoring ammunition sales and banning those on the terror watch list from buying guns." Fineman goes on to say: It is clear why a National State of Emergency scares the gun lobby and pro-gun lawmakers - it would neutralize them. My organization is encouraging a petition. As we tune in to CNN's...

    It looks like the GOP elites are absolutely intent on running Trump out of the race so they can control “the process.” The Party now determines who should be eligible to run and who meets their approval. Cruz’s “Washington Cartel” analogy was right! Last week GOP leader Reince Priebus defended Megyn Kelly and FOX News after the controversial debate where they planned zingers for the Republican candidates. This week he approved Hugh Hewitt, who has frequently spoken out against the GOP front-runner Donald Trump, to be debate moderator at the next Republican debate.

This SOB IGNORED THE MANDATE OF THE MIDTERM ELECTION, thus back-stabbing all of us by spearheading passage and funding of amnesty and Obamacare. Save to mention he has just committed suicide of the Republican party! Job ONE of next year's newly seated members of the House is to REPEAL AND REPLACE JOHN BOEHNER AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE!!!! May you ROT in hell for what you have just done to the Republican party, Speaker Boehner!

    Going Galt has a nice ring to it. Most people do not know what going Galt really means. Like so many expressions we have today, it can mean any number of things. How about a going Galt strategy that will generate results? What does going Galt mean and how would the strategy work? Going Galt is generally meant that those of us who are producers in society simply refuse to produce any more. Without producers, the economy will collapse. After all, without the producers, who is going to make what the takers want? Going Galt is actually something the left...

    Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) responded to the nation's downgrade at the hands of Standard & Poor's by calling for the resignation of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. Saying "enough is enough," the Tea Party favorite pressured President Obama to remove his top economic official and adopt a new perspective. "The President should demand that Secretary Geithner resign and immediately replace him with someone who will help Washington focus on balancing our budget and allowing the private sector to create jobs," he said in a statement. "For months he opposed all efforts to reduce the debt in return for a debt ceiling...

    Re “Donald Trump Gets Weirder,” by Gail Collins (column, April 2): Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers) is not at a high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong! ...I don't need Ms. Collins's advice. There is a large segment of our society who believe Barack Obama, indeed, was not born in the United...

    In a move clearly signaling that planning for the 2012 Presidential election is underway, President Barack Obama’s “go to” man Patrick Gaspard is leaving the White House to serve as Executive director of the Democratic National Committee. In a January 20 email to the Democratic Party faithful, D.N.C. chairman Tim Kaine wrote of Gaspard; Patrick Gaspard is a great person. He is a key Assistant to President Obama, having served as the Political Director of the White House for the last two years and before that as Political Director to President Obama’s campaign. He understands the importance of grassroots politics...

    The National Archives has announced that about 46,500 pages of documents from Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s four years of service in the Clinton White House will go online at 1 p.m. E.T. Friday, providing a fresh trove of information for Kagan’s supporters and opponents to pore through in search of ammunition for her confirmation hearings set to start later this month. White House counsel Bob Bauer indicated in a letter last month that Kagan’s work as a lawyer and policy adviser for President Bill Clinton generated about 160,000 pages of material, including 80,000 pages of paper documents and 79,000...

    If Elena Kagan had her way, Barack Obama might never have become president. The current Solicitor General and soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice tried her best to woo Obama to a life in academia when the two worked at the University of Chicago, according to MSNBC's First Read. Kagan joined the staff there in 1991 and won tenure in 1995. Obama was a part-time lecturer there between 1992 and 2004, when he was elected to the U.S. Senate, but according to reports she tried to convice him to pursue a tenure track.
