    Bela Fleck And Abigail Washburn: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert



    May 11, 2018 | Bob Boilen -- A very pregnant Abigail Washburn points to Bela Fleck at the Tiny Desk and says "and just so you know, this is his fault." I won't spoil the video by telling you his response.

    Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn are two American musical treasures. This husband-and-wife banjo duo write original tunes steeped in the roots of folk music. Their playing is sweetly paced with melodies interweaving through their intricate, percussive picking all while Abigail soars above it all with her discerning, yearning voice.

    Both Bela and Abigail have come to the Tiny Desk separately in different musical configurations: Bela with Edgar Meyer on bass fiddle and Zakir Hussain on tabla, and Abigail with her band celebrating both American and Chinese traditions. But together they are a timeless power that must be witnessed.

    How the Placebo Effect Really Works

    Gaia



    A placebo is a treatment with no active therapeutic properties. And it’s often used as the control in clinical trials to test the effectiveness of new pharmaceutical drugs. In cases where the placebo outperforms the drug, researchers come to the conclusion that the pharmaceutical should be deemed ineffective. But why aren’t they more interested in the fact that these people are getting better with no medicine at all?

    Behind the Scenes of Harvey Weinstein’s Arrest

    by Ronan Farrow - May 24, 2018 ...

    "After a seven-month investigation, the producer Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to the New York Police Department’s First Precinct on Friday morning to face sexual-assault charges. According to law-enforcement officials, the charges against Weinstein are based on the allegations of two women. One is Lucia Evans, a marketing consultant and former aspiring actress who told The New Yorker last October that Weinstein sexually assaulted her in his Manhattan office, in 2004. The day after the publication of that story, police detectives began trying to meet with Evans about filing a formal criminal complaint. One of the police sources called Evans “a highly credible witness with corroborating evidence.” In an interview on Thursday, Evans confirmed that she was pressing charges against Weinstein. “At a certain point, you have to think about the greater good of humanity, of womankind,” she told me."



    Lucia Evans’s allegations are at the center of the case against Harvey Weinstein.

    "Weinstein’s attorney, Ben Brafman, declined to comment on Thursday. After Weinstein appeared in court on Friday, Brafman wrote in a statement, “Mr. Weinstein has always maintained that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behavior with anyone. Nothing about today’s proceedings changes Mr. Weinstein’s position. He has entered a plea of Not Guilty and fully expects to be exonerated.”

    Mr Weinstein's attorney Ben Brafman further explained that he intends to file a Motion to Dismiss the charges as being legally flawed and not supported by credible evidence.

    N.Y.P.D. detectives have talked to numerous other women during the probe, including the actress Paz de la Huerta, who told me that she gave statements to investigators on two occasions. De La Huerta’s allegations are not part of the charges that are expected to be filed against Weinstein, but she said that she is still prepared to testify if asked to do so. “I think he belongs in jail,” she said. Investigators declined to identify the second woman.

    Detectives from the N.Y.P.D.’s Special Victims Division Cold Case Squad, which handles unsolved crimes, led the effort to secure evidence against Weinstein. The day after the New Yorker story was published online, two detectives drove to upstate New York to visit Evans’s parents at their home. The following day, they talked with Evans and her husband in Washington, D.C., and told her that if she filed a complaint, they could use it to put together a criminal case.

    Evans and her husband, Travis, told me that after the police left they grappled with the decision. The officers had told her that they might not be able to bring charges without her cooperation. “They said that if I do nothing, Harvey would walk,” Evans said. “I think the significance hit all at once.” Evans said that she initially felt “proud to be a part of this movement, just knowing I could do this for everybody.” But fear quickly set in. She realized, and the detectives conceded, that playing a central role in criminal proceedings against Weinstein could be a long and bruising process. “I think everyone’s self-preservation mechanism kicks in when they make a big life decision such as this,” she told me. “What is it going to mean to you? How is it going to affect your life, your family, your friends?”

    The detectives offered to move Evans to a safe location where she wouldn’t face threats. Evans instead proposed staying at a friend’s house outside of New York City. She and her husband traveled there the next day and spent several days meeting with attorneys, ultimately settling on Carrie Goldberg, a lawyer who specializes in sexual-violence, “revenge porn,” and stalking cases, and who was already representing de la Huerta.

    Several officers involved in the investigation were also part of a 2015 investigation of Weinstein that began after the model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez accused him of assaulting her. In an undercover sting operation, detectives recorded audio of Weinstein admitting to groping Gutierrez. Two police sources told me that they were angered that the office of the Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, decided not pursue charges at the time. One investigator called the D.A.’s decision “corrupt.” The sources said that the current investigation, which came after extensive public criticism of the D.A.’s office, was markedly different. Prosecutors in Vance’s office worked with the second woman whose allegation underpins tomorrow’s expected arrest and took the lead in developing her case.

    In the New Yorker story, Evans recounted how Weinstein approached her at a club, Cipriani Upstairs, in 2004, the summer before her senior year at Middlebury College. Weinstein invited her to meet with him about career opportunities in the Tribeca offices of his film company, Miramax. There, she alleged, he sexually assaulted her. “He forced me to perform oral sex on him,” she told me. “I said, over and over, ‘I don’t want to do this. Stop. Don’t.’ ” She said of Weinstein, “He’s a big guy. He overpowered me.”

    After months of what Evans described as sleepless nights, she decided to proceed with the complaint against Weinstein. “We gave her time,” a source involved in the investigation said. “We worked with her gradually to make sure she was comfortable. Even when she came in and told us the story in the D.A.’s office of what had happened, we still weren’t, like, ‘Boom, it’s going forward.’ ”

    Evans told me, of her experience with Weinstein, “I know how this has changed my life for the worse. How he took away my self-esteem and personal power. And knowing I can take it back, and stop him from doing that to another woman, I couldn’t let that go.”

    "Do you wish to improve your intelligence?
    Then we’ll first have to figure out what “intelligence” actually is" ...  Suspect


    From LegaliseFreedom1  

    Antonin Tuynman - Machine / Mind / Mankind -
    The Future of Consciousness


    Antonin Tuynman discusses his book Is Intelligence an Algorithm?, a wide-ranging exploration of the similarities and differences between human and artificial intelligence, and the potential for future advancement of both.

    Although human and machine intelligence share certain similarities, there are profound differences which pose significant problems for the development of an artificial intelligence which can truly match or even exceed the capabilities of the human brain. Artificial intelligence seeks to emulate the strengths of human intelligence whilst eliminating its weaknesses. However, both human flaws and human genius stem from the same source and it seems that we cannot have one without the other. Among other things, this places the prospects for transhumanist hopes of merging man and machine in serious doubt.

    There is also the question of whether artificial intelligence can ever truly understand the information it processes. Even the most powerful computers today are still essentially number crunchers with a limited capacity for pattern recognition. Meaning and purpose are alien to A.I., as are beliefs, emotions, desires, intuition, morals, and a host of other human characteristics and qualities. Consciousness is an unfathomable mystery even to us, so it seems that our attempts to replicate it in machines are doomed to failure.

    However, whatever the apparent limitations of artificial intelligence, computers are increasingly being placed in charge of the infrastructure and systems on which modern life depends. This poses difficult questions about what might happen should A.I. somehow evolve on its own. The so-called 'internet of things' is linking computer power with sensors, robots, and other machines at a rate which may become exponential. This cybernetic matrix is being given the power to control, to regulate, to decide, to act. What if it calculates that we are the problem? Many human beings have already come to this conclusion. Man, machine, or something in between... To whom - or what - does the future belong?
