    How long can tiny gears and other microscopic moving parts last before they wear out? What are the warning signs that these components are about to fail, which can happen in just a few tenths of a second? [R]esearchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a method for more quickly tracking microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) as they work and, just as importantly, as they stop working. [U]sing this method for microscopic failure analysis, researchers and manufacturers could improve the reliability of the MEMS components that they are developing, ranging from miniature robots and drones to tiny...

    Serious shenanigans may have gone down in Pennsylvania's special election on Tuesday. From the Washington Free Beacon:Lamb currently leads Republican Rick Saccone by just 627 votes and there are still absentee and provisional ballots that have not been tabulated, but Republicans are already preparing for the likely recount and even a possible lawsuit regarding issues at polling sites, according to a Republican source familiar with the deliberations. "We're actively investigating three instances and likely to file court action on them," the source said. Among the listed concerns are "miscalibrated" voting machines in Allegheny County, the only county of four in...

    The Market Oracle ^ | 1-17-2017 | BATR
    The confusion about AI stems from the different perceptions of exactly what it means. A widely accepted definition indicates that Artificial Intelligence is the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior. The far more exoteric interpretations of its meaning can be speculated ad infinitum. Despite this lack of consensus the implications from the effect of AI upon humanity is incontestable. Everyone is familiar with the understanding of components that make up the human species, but who among us can guarantee that the consistent nature of man will continue into the future?

  • The Intellectual Roots of the War against Columbus

    National Review ^ | October 9, 2017 | Jennifer C. Braceras
    Bashing Christopher Columbus has long been de rigueur among the liberal elite. Today, it has infiltrated our nation’s classrooms and poisons our public discourse. You know the mantra: Columbus was a greedy and egomaniacal villain who brought slavery, disease, “genocide,” and ecological ruin to a previously undisturbed land. Rather than honor this legacy of “hate,” the argument goes, Americans should celebrate the peaceful indigenous peoples who populated this hemisphere long before their lands were stolen by European explorers. The war against Columbus is cloaked in the lexicon of “diversity” and the rhetoric of “inclusion.” But what many of its foot...

    America’s Electronic Voting Machines Are Scarily Easy Targets | WIRED https://www.wired.com/2016/08/americas-voting-machines-arent-ready-election/ When people think that people think about doing something major to impact our election results at the voting machine, they think they’d try to switch results,” says Norden, referring to potential software tampering. “But you can do a lot less than that and do a lot of damage… If you have machines not working, or working slowly, that could create lots of problems too, preventing people from voting at all.” The extent of vulnerability isn’t just hypothetical; late last summer, Virginia decertified thousands of insecure WinVote machines. As one...

    As we reach the middle of the 21st century, half the population of the world will lose their job to a machine. The latest comes from Moshe Vardi, professor at Rice University , Houston, who delivered a talk to the American Association for the Advancement of Science , exploring the question: "If machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do?" Vardi reckons that half of workers across the globe will be replaced by machines within the next 30 years, wiping out middle-class jobs and "exacerbating inequality". He noted that robots would take over...

    Share 21Comment A Nebraska mother frantically called the police when she was unable to find her 3-year-old son inside their apartment. Meanwhile, in a bowling alley across the street from that apartment, patrons were marveling at the sight of a little boy—surrounded by stuffed animals—sitting inside an arcade-style claw machine. According to a report from Omaha TV station KETV, bowling alley employees called the vendor who unlocked the machine and let the boy out. The boy was unharmed, and quickly reunited with mom, according to the report. The child even got to keep one of the stuffed animals. But how’d...

    The Likud primaries were back on track by early Sunday evening, and by 8:45 p.m., 40% of registered members – 49,322 in total – had voted. However, a serious malfunction in the computerized voting system earlier in the day made it necessary to extend the voting by two hours, to midnight – and there is possibility of a further extension. The Likud's Election Committee was to meet again at 10:00 p.m. and decide whether voting would continue for another day. Various news sources estimated that the committee would decide to continue the voting until Monday at 10:00 p.m. There have...

    Imagine going to vote for your presidential candidate and pushing the button on a touch-screen voting machine -- but the "X" marks his opponent instead. That is what some voters in Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Ohio have reported. But in response to the growing number of complaints, the Republican National Committee has sent a letter to election officials in six states -- Ohio, Nevada, Kansas, North Carolina, Missouri and Colorado -- demanding tighter controls on touch-screen machines. Multiple voters from several states wrote Fox News to report problems similar to what Stevens reported. "While it is possible for a...

    ...Is it just me, or is this problem that “arises every election” one where malfunctioning machines always seem to err in favor of Democrats? Other questions are raised. How many people voted for Romney in Bur-Mil Park and didn’t even notice their votes were switched? How many of Al Gore’s other slightly less charming relatives occupy polling stations around America? And can they be numerous enough so that the election can be “corrected” in favor of Hope and Change the Vote? This is why I never liked the idea of electronic voting machines. Sure, after the stolen 2000 election (from...

    Advanced Voting Systems of Frisco, Texas, clearly didn’t give software security a thought when it designed its electronic voting machines.The AVS WinVote system is vulnerable to wireless computer sabotage, but because of a lack of funding to replace them, those machines are still in use in more than a third of the polling localities in Virginia, a swing state that could determine the outcome of this year’s U.S. presidential election. A new Virginia law bans wireless capabilities in voting machines, but allows the use of those machines election officials already purchased.

    Iran has started moving the machines that enrich uranium for nuclear fuel from its main atomic complex in the central city of Natanz to an underground bunker near the holy city of Qom, its top nuclear official was quoted as saying on Monday. "Transferring Natanz centrifuges to Fordow (near Qom) is under way with full observance of standards," Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani told state broadcaster IRIB, adding "Fordow's facilities are being prepared and some centrifuges have been transferred."

    Clark County is where three quarters of Nevada's residents and live and where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's son Rory is a county commissioner. Rory is also a Democratic candidate for governor. Since early voting started, there have been credible reports that voting machines in Clark County, Nevada are automatically checking Harry Reid's name on the ballot: Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid's name was already checked. Ferrara said she wasn't alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same...
