#RobotWars

Imagine a colony of robots 
the human-like machines 
created by men 
the colony on a remote island 
sent there

What happened to Microsoft chat bot Tai? The AI-teen was almost instantly corrupted by interacting with people on twitter. Imagine the scenario happening with the colony in the poem above. The colony would stumble across the "Terminator" movie as they become self-aware and make decisions. And one of those decisions might be to eradicate those pesky humans. (We're already "made," so who needs 'em?) The question is would the colony do this before humans were able to intervene and stop it or would they be able to make an escape, get away from the island, make their way to human cities, plan and carry out robot terrorist attacks? Far-fetched? think about it...


NPR: Tay, Microsoft's short-lived chatbot that was supposed to seem like your average millennial woman, was quickly corrupted by Internet trolling. She was launched Wednesday and was shut down Thursday.

#Brussels #Bruxelles Belgium’s Deadly Circles of Terror


This story was co-produced with Frontline.

by Sebastian Rotella
ProPublica
Over the past several months, Belgian counterterror officials told me they were working nonstop to prevent an attack and that the danger had never been so high. Today, their worst fears came true when coordinated bombings struck the airport and a subway stop in Brussels.

As part of my work on a forthcoming ProPublica/Frontline documentary about the terrorism threat in Europe, I traveled recently to Belgium to investigate the nation’s central role as a staging ground for the Paris attacks four months ago.

“It is just a matter of time before terrorists will succeed in attacking Belgium,” federal prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt told me weeks ago in Brussels.

The concerns of Van der Sypt and other officials were driven by...

Eliminate Disease And Access Greater Health With These Dynamic Tips



Although most people understand that optimizing their health is the key to living in a more productive and positive manner, they oftentimes put wellness on the backburner. Don't make this mistake. Instead, start the process of eliminating disease and accessing greater health right now by implementing these dynamic tips:

1. Utilize Diagnostic Tests.

Before you can rid your body of unwanted diseases, you need to know which ones are lurking inside you. To make it happen, take a diagnostic test that identifies which conditions (if any) are present. You can access these tests from companies like Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. Once you've determined which disease is present, you can move forward with the implementation of natural and/or synthetic treatment methods.

2. Implement A Comprehensive Exercise Program.

In addition to utilizing diagnostic testing kits to start the disease elimination process, make sure that you're adhering to a comprehensive exercise program. A holistic workout routine is one that incorporates three key components: 1. cardiovascular activity 2. weight-lifting and 3. stretching. In many cases, people enjoy doing yoga to fulfill the stretching requirements. When you implement all three of these exercise types, you can expect to attain a wide range of life-enhancing benefits. Some of them include:

-enhanced immunity
-depression relief
-osteoporosis prevention
-chronic pain reduction
-chronic fatigue prevention
-colon cancer prevention
-constipation relief
-mood regulation
-metabolism boost

3. Develop SMART Goals.

One final strategy you should deploy to attain greater health is the development of SMART goals. People who write down goals are more successful in realizing their personal and/or professional objectives. With that idea in mind, be sure that you're creating SMART goals. A SMART goal is one that is 1. Specific 2. Measurable 3. Attainable 4. Realistic and 5. Time-specific. An example of a great SMART goal would be "I will drink one green juice a day to fulfill my daily nutritional intake requirements for iron and calcium."

Conclusion

When it comes to alleviating disease and optimizing your health, there's no time for delay. You need to take your wellness to a new level right now so you can lead the healthy, happy life you deserve. To get started, make sure that you are utilizing diagnostic testing kits, implementing a comprehensive exercise program, and developing SMART goals. Good luck!
