Investigating Novel Statistical Techniques to Identify Neurophysiological Correlates of Trustworthiness. Whom do you trust? The answer is essential in everyday interactions but particularly so in the Intelligence Community, where knowing whom to trust is often vital. The Intelligence Advanced Research Project Activity (IARPA) TRUST program seeks ways to detect… neural, psychological, physiological, and behavioral signals that reflect a partner’s trustworthiness. The goal of this Challenge is to develop an algorithm that identifies and extracts such signals from data recorded ….such as neurophysiology and data analytics to solve this complex problem. This is a Reduction-to-Practice Challenge that requires written documentation and delivery of source code implementing an algorithm that solves the problem.
Can the government depend on you? Will you do as you’re told? If not, you aren’t trustworthy. New computer algorithms will soon uncover all the malcontents who refuse to obey authority.
This isn’t as joke, people. It’s deadly serious and shows the tract our government is on.
"Universities, which should be incubators of new and radical ideas, are being stripped of their ability to independently critique the widening gap between reality and the false models of reality that are disseminated by the elites.
The kind of willfulness with which I can talk to you now is not guaranteed for future scholars,” he said. “The academic system has discovered it is no longer necessary to provide tenure. This system is fraying. And this is deliberate. This independence is a source of trouble. When Stalin carried out his purges he purged the best and the brightest. These were an alternative source of power. And I think there is a sense in government and business that there is too much independence in academia. We need to be put in our place. The spirit of free inquiry, free expression, and to some extent free teaching, and communality is alien to the corporate and political culture, which are repressive hierarchies.
Those academics who deviate from the central core doctrines, including in economics, are finding themselves defunded. Oversight committees impose quotas on academics and insist that the work conform to what they call disciplinary norms. The idea of the autonomous scholar is disappearing. I am not sure many people even remember it.”

you might read about the international community being “surprised at the Russian invasion of Crimea. There’s no truth to it. Not a soul on earth believed Russia would stand idly by while political turmoil threatened its Black Sea naval bases and the surrounding military industry. Russia is heavily reliant on both. There was no question they would step in.
The US clearly stated they plan to deploy a Missile Defense Shield throughout Europe. Russia would be insane if they allow a host of ballistic missiles literally in their back yard. For this reason, they will not allow the Ukraine to fall under UN control.
So nothing about the Ukrainian situation is unexpected or surprising. Russia has its back to the wall.
It is no secret the political upheaval in the Ukraine is largely due to the US. We have spent over $5 billion funding the uprising, even resorting to hiring paid protesters. In a leaked phone conversation between Victoria Nuland of the US State Department and the US ambassador to the Ukraine, Geoffrey Pratt, Nuland is heard actually picking people to fill political offices. You can read about it here.
I’m not saying the US was unjustified. The Ukrainian situation is so complex it requires more information than we can know reading news. Armchair pundits are operating in the dark and anything they say is pretty worthless.
However, a few things are obvious. The citizens are increasingly embracing the Right Sector. They are a neo-Nazi contingent of extremists. It tells you a lot when the public prefers Nazis over either UN or Russian control. I can’t say the State Department did a convincing job selling the UN.
The question remains why the US created riots and political upheaval when they knew Russia would eventually step in? The answer is very troubling no matter what it is.
"A car buyer walks into a dealership…and the salesperson tries to convince her she doesn’t want one. The appropriate question should be directed to makers of electric cars: What are you doing to make selling electric cars as profitable and painless for your dealers as selling gasoline or diesel vehicles?"
This article states dealers aren’t interested in electric cars because they are unprofitable. Customers ask questions the salesmen can’t answer, thus taking time that should be spent on additional sales.
So they blame the customer for wasting salesmen’s time and the car company for not making electric cars as “painless” to sell as gasoline cars.
Here is another idea. Why don’t those brain dead salesmen learn something so they can answer questions? Why can’t the car dealer pay enough to keep staff with an IQ above 50?
The car company provided the dealer with a marketable, desirable car. The customer is actively engaged and willing to buy. It’s up to the salesman to sell it. If they can’t do their job then don’t blame the customer.
Verizon VZ customers are seeing more of their programs either being delivered at slow speeds or cutting off in the middle of watching a video.
Internet service providers are taking advantage of the court ruling that struck down net neutrality. They are trying to extort money from popular online services like Netflix. Verizon, Comcast, and Time Warner will either slow the service until it is useless or cut them off entirely.
The practice will move to other services like Hulu and YouTube until practically everything must pay. You won’t be able to do a Google search unless Google pays your service provider. Is this the internet you want?
The FCC is currently drafting new regulations for Net Neutrality. Now is the time for your voice to be heard. Contact every elected official. Let them know we do not accept two or three corporations taking our internet freedom.
As you know, rich people send their kids to private schools where armed guards protect the children. If anyone mentions a similar situation for public schools, the government acts outraged. They do not want your children to have the same protection. Their kids are important but yours are not.
Keep this in mind as you learn the Department of Education has been buying itself hundreds of guns and millions of ammo rounds. The school system is not opposed to guns. They are just opposed to protecting your children. However, they are not opposed to protecting themselves. Remember this when you hear the next slate of gun control lies.
