If you ever wondered about which country produces the best programmers, wonder no more. A new report from California-based HackerRank, a service that administers tests to developers around the world, says it’s China. Second place goes to Russia, and Poland takes bronze. Traditional programming powerhouses like the US and India came in at 28th and 31st, respectively. HackerRank offers its community of …
President Barack Obama met for more than four hours at the White House with a diverse group of leaders yesterday—the same day he spoke at the funeral of five police officers killed by an ex-soldier in a sniper attack July 7 in Dallas. The Unifier-in-Chief said he wanted their ideas and input on how to build “trust” between police and the communities they serve, the main focus of The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing he created by executive order in December 2014.
The task force in May last year delivered a 116-page report, with recommendations for nationwide changes in six key areas—building trust and legitimacy; policy and oversight; technology and social media; community policing and crime reduction; training and education; and officer wellness and safety. Yet, Obama continues to plead for deeper understanding of, and solutions for, the “trust problem.”
It’s not as if there’s a dearth of information about law-enforcement (and especially its problems); the task force’s report pales in comparison to books, articles and scholarly papers on the subject. Why, then, is Obama stalling on implementing his own task force’s—and other credible–recommendations?
Do the Sumerian tablets only present a myth? Maybe not.
These ancient tablets were first translated in the late 1800’s and archeologists were unfamiliar with flying ships. What imagination they were thought to hold! They spoke of gods who came from these ships and they brought technology to build monuments. They also brought conflict and war. Zecharia Sitchin was a recent scientist who saw that these ancient tablets showed some of our modern technology that was previously misunderstood in the old translations. It’s fascinating when you look at the tablets with a modern eye and realize that these ancient people wrote in depth about space ships and interstellar communications. The gods who emerged from these ships brought a civilization with them and taught these early minds how to use technology.
Today’s science still can’t explain how old monuments were built with such perfection that needed very advanced tools. There are even elaborate writings about the mating of these gods with early cavemen and the leap to human sapiens that was able to happen. Science is still baffled about how sophisticated intelligence evolved as normal evolution would have been too slow. Zecharia Sitchin wrote many books about these old tablets but he’s gone now and his work is being maintained by M.J. Evans who recently wrote Zecharia Sitchin and the Extraterrestrial Origins of Humanity. This is a story that’s very captivating and represents many years of detailed research. You might want to learn more about it.
Tune into my interview with M.J. Evans.
The unspeakable has become the inescapable in today’s world. It’s become a running joke on the internet that the word “upgrade” inevitably means poorer service, fewer benefits, and more annoyances for those who have to deal with the new and allegedly improved product. The same logic can be applied equally well across the entire landscape of modern technology. What’s new, innovative, …
As humankind progression goes we’re in an incredible technological age. As an evolved species about 200,000 years on a planet as old as 4.5 billion years, we’ve boldly gone into space, killed off diseases that hitherto wreaked havoc on the earth and, hopefully, we’ve learned from the carnage of the past and now have less and less an appetite for …
Tech Nightmare—And, Crime is Down! (not that you’d think so).
Today’s Show: Energy is Us
Guest Speaker: Alex Acuna
A talk on how we are a Spiritual Energy Conductor of Light, Sound, Thoughts and Dimensions.
New Quantum physics and Epigenetic studies support this concept. Learn about recent research about how the mind can influence the behavior of subatomic particles, epigenetics and physical matter and how thoughts create our reality.
Scientist and technology are now confirming what the Sages, Yogis and Seers and Metaphysicians have been saying for over millennia. Reality is an illusion, a projection from our collective being and that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration.
