Extended quote from Obama explaining how people with access think there isn't a social ill that can't be overcome by people with merit.

The corollary is that those with access think they have it because they have merit.

Ed Rensi tries to tie mechanization to the minimum wage. Could it be possible he's just ignorant? The CEO of McDonald's? Really? These robotics have just been introduced. The price will go down. Way down. His screed about the minimum wage is ludicrous.

Ed Rensi, ex-CEO of McDonald's, said increasing the minimum wage will make robot adoption happen faster. "I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday, and if you look at the robotic devices that are coming into the restaurant industry -- it's cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who's inefficient making $15 an hour bagging French fries."___Ed Rensi tries to tie mechanization to the minimum wage.

Democratizing Neuroscience with OpenBCI & Adapting Content with Biofeedback

OpenBCI is an open source, brain control interface that gathers EEG data. It was designed for makers and DIY neuroengineers, and has the potential to democratize neuroscience with a $100 price point. At the moment, neither OpenBCI nor other commercial off-the-shelf neural devices are compatible with any of the virtual reality HMDs, but there are VR headsets like MindMaze that are fully integrated their headset with neural inputs. I had the chance to talk with OpenBCI founder Conor Russomanno about the future of VR and neural input on the day before the Experiential Technology and Neurogaming Expo — also known as XTech. Once the neural inputs are integrated in VR headsets, then VR experiences will be able to detect and react whenever something catches your attention, your level of alertness, your degree of cognitive.___ #education

Will the prices of shoes go down? Likely not. But this points out the possibility that Amazon should be able to deliver a pair of custom shoes in a day sometime soon.

Hermes is the only leathergoods company that still uses hand stitching yet competitors' ladies handbags are priced as if they were still using droves of humans. Technology is a stepwise process.

Last week there was a story about a glasses company that undersells the industry and still donates glasses/money to the less fortunate. I'm not sure if the media were surprised at the eyeglasses company's use of the Internets or their refusal to adopt the industry's extractive pricing.

Adidas will start making shoes in Germany using robots 20 years after moving all their manufacturing out of Germany to Asia. "The new state-of-the-art 4,600-square-metre plant is still being built, but Adidas showed off a foretaste of it to the press, promising to automatise shoe production, currently done mostly by hand in Asia, and enable the shoes to be made more quickly and closer to its sales outlets."___Will the prices of shoes go down?

I gave a keynote talk at GCP NEXT a couple of months ago, and as part of that, I demoed this nice visual explorer that folks at Google built to demonstrate the Cloud Vision API. You get to fly through a point cloud of tens of thousands of images, annotated and clustered automatically by Google's Cloud Vision API. As of today, this demo is now released to the public, so you too can play with it (requires a relatively recent version of Chrome).

You can learn more about the Cloud Vision API, which is now in GA ("General Availability") at https://cloud.google.com/vision/

Have fun!___ #education

"The results of the Oregon primaries appear to have stalled at 96% of “precincts” reporting, with Sanders at 56.0% and Clinton at 44.0% — but the truth is that there is much less than 94.5% of the vote reporting. Of what is left, Sanders seems to be taking about 69% — and he’s currently defeating Clinton’s 43.3% with 56.7% or 342,377 out of 603,895 votes counted"

Uuden menetelmän kaksinkertainen etu. Äänekoskelle rakennettavan sellutehtaan hajut poistetaan hämmästyttävällä tavalla - yksi ja sama prosessi sekä puhdistaa ilmaa että tuottaa tehtaan tarvitsemaa raaka-ainetta, rikkihappoa.

Metsäteollisuudessa perinteinen harmi on ollut, että rikkihappo joudutaan ostamaan. Puhdistuslaitokseen liittyvä rikkihappolaitos tekee tehtaasta rikkihapon suhteen lähes omavaraisen.

Reliably storing 3 bits of data per cell using a relatively new memory technology known as phase-change memory (PCM) has been demonstrated. "IBM scientists are presenting, for the first time, successfully storing 3 bits per cell in a 64k-cell array at elevated temperatures and after 1 million endurance cycles."

"PCM doesn't lose data when powered off, unlike DRAM, and the technology can endure at least 10 million write cycles, compared to an average flash USB stick, which tops out at 3,000 write cycles."

"To achieve multi-bit storage IBM scientists have developed two innovative enabling technologies: a set of drift-immune cell-state metrics and drift-tolerant coding and detection schemes."

5. Put them in vector space

The letter also contains details from a closed-door meeting that included both Chipman and former secretary of defense Leon Panetta. During this meeting, Chipman reportedly told Panetta:

‘I think you ordered exactly the right forces to move out and to head toward a position where they could reinforce what was occurring in Benghazi or Tripoli or elsewhere in the region. And, sir, I don’t disagree with the actions you took, the recommendations you made and the decisions you directed.’

Regarding the Every Student Succeeds Act
Gentlemen,
Given the known outcome of successful education reforms in Puerto Rico, Singapore, and Finland, schemes in the continental US are and have been without provable merit. They are merely commonsense approaches. The fact that such diverse policy environments as Massachusetts and Minnesota have had success should point to the obvious conclusion that policy decisions have been very nearly random.

And given the recent judgement in New York, it appears Value Added teacher evaluation systems are officially pseudoscience.

Therefore, I am unwilling to support political activity that honors willful ignorance. Even if it is bipartisan.

I saw this one first:

It casts the weight of the insolvency on Sanders. I chose the Burlington Free Press article for being close to the story. It doesn't cast Sanders as responsible. Given the fact that institutions have boards of trustees who generally make these decisions, it seemed curious to me. But when I looked at the other stories at heatst.com I realized it was a bit odd. They carry stories that pander to dog whistle talking points.
Sanders is likely guilty of being over optimistic about the school's capacity to grow. Given the small faculty, I'm thinking Mouse That Roared.

Extended quote from Obama explaining how people with access think there isn't a social ill that can't be overcome by people with merit.

The corollary is that those with access think they have it because they have merit.

"Research-based" education policy is primarily hot air.
If you think this isn't important, consider the importance of Intelligent Design and the Tammy Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover Area School District case.
#Florida   #GOP  Yes, I realize it's not all the fault of the GOP but Jeb Bush is Florida Man as much as Rick Scott.

DenvasTV (China) is a series of Russian language video examinations of ordinary life in China. This one is about a hotel. He's interested in construction and his observations on rural homes and heat conservation are interesting.

The House argues that the cost-sharing program was authorized but never appropriated. The House says that there is proof that the White House knew the cost-sharing subsidies weren’t funded and worked around the legislation to implement them.
The White House asked Congress to fund the program in its fiscal 2014 budget request, which was denied. It then unilaterally funded the program through the refundable tax credit account anyway, the House lawyers argued in court.

GOP has just won a lawsuit to get rid of the low income subsidy for ACA. The GOP has no plans for anything to replace it. They just want to take away healthcare from millions of the poorest Americans.
