RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Over 6000 new cases today, over 200 patients on ventilation in hospital (a few weeks ago it was under a hundred). and to go with grouse shooting, a goverment clarification issued today...

Quote:
Chauffeur-driven cars will be exempt from the laws enforcing passengers to wear masks in taxis. The spokesman said the two were "not comparable", stressing that a private driver typically chauffeurs a single individual but the driver of licensed vehicle carries - and risks infection from - a range of customers and should be afforded protection.

From here...

RE: Trolls

Think of the left as the Rojos, the right as the Baxters, and Russia as the man with no name. Watch A Fistful of Dollars and you’ll get what Snaps is saying...

And note who’s left alive at the end of that movie.

It should be cheaper to flush than to export, or didn't you want to pollute your rivers?

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Trump should debate himself. He’s contradicted himself and just plain out lied so often on public record that they should just play a tape of him saying the exact opposite whenever he says something. Like this week he was claiming he ‘up-played’ the Coronavirus at the start, where in February he was saying it’ll be gone before we know it.

That is the issue of course. The whole do what we say, not what we do is a non-starter. Everyone's all compliant and understanding about the Covid lockdown for months, then Cummings takes a trip to Barnard castle, and the country's like "screw you".

Now it's Rule of Six, while "breaking the law in a specific and limited way". The country is so going to be "screw you and the camel you rode in on" that it will hurt.

So, has anyone broken the law today in a "specific and limited way"?

Today I parked on a pavement in London for 10 minutes, while I popped into a shop.

Ornithopters!

Directed by the same guy behind Arrival and Blade Runner 2049. Might be worth a look, although I have a soft spot for Lynch's folly.

RE: Earthquake

We had a 3.3 yesterday in the UK

Might have been the same one tunnelling under the Atlantic. Didn't get as far as London though, and I doubt it would have made it through all that London clay anyway.

I've been in two (minor) Earthquakes. One I slept through, and woke up to see some small objects had fallen over in the night. The second time, I had just got off a plane, was climbing up some stairs, felt a wobble and thought it was jet lag.

RE: [VIDEO] Living on Youtube

If you’re more diligent than I, you’ll have peeled through that Heroes box set on iPlayer by now. I staggered under the crappiness of Season 4 and have taken a break.

Not to worry as there’s something even better to watch now. I missed the first two episodes of nuBattlestar Galactica on BBC2 on Saturday night just passed.

But not to worry, the whole thing is on iPlayer too.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Bloody hell! Brexit was a thing once, wasn’t it? Oh, it still is, and the Tories continue to f*** it up in spectacular and imaginative ways.

Screw the end of the year, now we walk away in October if there isn’t a deal. Turns out that the oven ready deal Boris was promising isn’t and never was. Big surprise.

And the new news... Screw the withdrawal agreement as well, and screw the Northern Ireland peace agreement in the process. But on the bright side Covid cases are up by 3000 yesterday, so by the time this rolls around, we’ll all be too sick and dead to care.

RE: [VIDEO] The deeply concerning advent of Deepfakes

The deepfake arms race has begun. Microsoft unveils deepfake detection tool, which may already be outdated.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-53984114

Quote:
Microsoft has developed a tool to spot deepfakes - computer-manipulated images in which one person's likeness has been used to replace that of another.

The software analyses photos and videos to give a confidence score about whether the material is likely to have been artificially created.

The firm says it hopes the tech will help "combat disinformation".

One expert has said it risks becoming quickly outdated because of the pace at which deepfake tech is advancing.

To address this, Microsoft has also announced a separate system to help content producers add hidden code to their footage so any subsequent changes can be easily flagged.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

The kind of US TV and movie fiction that I do watch usually has rogue elements in intelligence services doing evil things (see my most recent review). I don't exactly trust them for authentic representations of the US justice and political systems.

All I can count on is what I see in the news reports, which is Trump sending Feds into cities with unrest, and footage of people being snatched off the street by people with no identification or announcement. Now in a situation where you also have neo-Nazis dressing up in military gear, carrying automatic weapons, and calling themselves militia. There was no mention of defending or protecting Federal property in those news reports, so I choose to draw a different conclusion.

"Nope, they were there under Executive Order specifically to protect federal property, such as the courthouse."

Quote:
Si Wooldridge says...
"nor that they did not identify themselves as law enforcement during the apprehensions."

So Trump can send in the Feds to any state without consulting local government to protect Federal property, and since every state has Federal property...

And you concede they were apprehending protesters, away  from Federal premises.

And you say Trump has no power in these situations.

Okay....
