Japan abandoned the development of 5G networks for the health of citizens

A study by the University of Nagasaki provides figures confirming the increase in the number of mental disorders and fatigue among high-speed Internet users. According to scientists, the more a person manages to conduct intellectual operations per minute, the more he is prone to the development of stress, absent-mindedness and an increase in nervous excitement. The Ministry of Health supplements colleagues and assures that using 5G networks can reduce the average life expectancy in the country for the first time in 60 years, and the impact of high-speed Internet is comparable to the effects of radiation on the human body. “We need to think about the health of the Japanese. Our country has already accelerated economically so that today we have nowhere to hurry. It is necessary to stabilize this state. 5G is fraught with great danger. So we think n

When the A.I. #Professor Leaves, #Students #Suffer, #Study Says


Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/06/technology/when-the-ai-professor-leaves-students-suffer-study-says.html
For years, big tech companies have used huge salaries, bonuses and stock packages to lure artificial #intelligence experts out of #academia.
...
The talent shift could accelerate the development of artificial intelligence inside tech giants like #Google, #Microsoft, #Amazon and #Apple.
But at the universities the professors left, graduating students were less likely to create new A.I. companies. When they did, they attracted smaller amounts of funding, according to the study. The effect was most pronounced in the field of “deep learning,” a #technology that has become a crucial part of new A.I. systems.

Dutch publication Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant reports that Intel offered to pay the researchers a USD $40,000 "reward" to allegedly get them to downplay the severity of the vulnerability, and backed their offer with an additional $80,000. The team politely refused both offers.

Just like the "Nestor of the Moulinsart", Xavier looks after the place.

bell hooks on harassment policy


In Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope on page 143
Years ago at the University of California Santa Cruz where I was a graduate student who taught Women's Studies courses, I sat on a committee working on sexual harassment policy. I remember giving a little speech about why prevention and not punishment should be our primary agenda, but no one wanted to listen. The part of the speech that turned everyone off was the suggestion that during orientation of first-year students there might be a space for playful skits that would dramatize situations where professors would make inappropriate overtures toward students, and then actors in the skits pretending to be students would show the best way to handle such situations. I proposed a skit that would simply show a flirtatious male professor inviting a female student to bring her paper over to his house in the late evening so that they could go over it together and her responding that it would be best for them to meet during office hours. When I presented my idea I was met wit

On the vagina statue, located at the Tübingen university


But in 2014, an American student studying abroad in Germany came across the striking anatomical depiction and decided to pose for pictures with it along with some friends.

The story of the trapped student received a lot of attention from the media, bringing the intriguing artwork out of the shadows and putting it in the international spotlight.

The sculpture can be accessed without any restrictions all year long. Please, learn from others' mistakes and do not enter it.

Did you hear it? Don't unbirth yourself, don't enter the vagina.

But can I ask one small question... "Islamophobia"... - ok! "Biphobia"? (what is the fucking word "biphobia"?), etc. ... well, ok.

But where is the word ANTISEMITISM in this list? Is this theme resolved for jokes in the "School of African and Oriental Studies"?

A #journal to publish controversial ideas anonymously


There is going to be one issue a year and the criteria for selection, says McMahan, are that the articles “give plausible arguments, good reasons and verifiable evidence in support of a position that is controversial, in the sense that is likely to arouse anger and hostility in some people, and that these arguments should be presented in an unpolitical non-ad hominem manner. That is, we’re not going to accept papers that are designed to antagonise people. We want to protect the authors not their ideas, so I certainly think that the journal should welcome the publication of replies.”

I like the idea, although two points sound strange to me: First, why do they have to be unpolitical? Isn’t it usually the political spectre in which some people are frightened to express their ideas openly, publicly? And secondly, why is it only one issue per year? Is it that expensive? How sad, they should be able to at... Show more...
