Singularitarianism - Wikipedia

Singularitarianism - Wikipedia | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Singularitarianism is a technocentric ideology and social movement defined by the belief that a technological singularity—the creation of a superintelligence—will likely happen in the medium future, and that deliberate action ought to be taken to ensure that the Singularity benefits humans.
Singularitarians are distinguished from other futurists who speculate on a technological singularity by their belief that the Singularity is not only possible, but desirable if guided prudently. Accordingly, they might sometimes dedicate their lives to acting in ways they believe will contribute to its rapid yet safe realization.[1]
Some critics argue that Singularitarianism is a new religious movement promising salvation in a technological utopia.[2] Others, however, are concerned that the interest in the Singularity by corporate and military interests provides a clue as to the real direction and social implication of emerging technologies celebrated by Singularitarians.

Driverless cars that know our schedule well enough to arrive at our front door exactly when we need one, that allow us to work or read or even sleep while we commute safely to work — that’s Silicon Valley’s dream for the automobile. Intelligent, autonomous, powered as much by code as fossil fuels.

Only, it can’t happen until the necessary technologies are fully tested — not in the lab but out on the road and under real-world conditions. That’s where the new Mcity comes in.

England may just be building the highways of the future.  This month, the Brits announced a pilot for electric motorways. Yes, that’s correct. You can charge your electric vehicle while driving, minimizing stop times at charging stations and making it easier to do a road trip in a Tesla.  The UK is not the first country to try this concept. The Netherlands has been researching “smart highways,” which go beyond electric-powered streets to a host of new technologies. South Korea already has a 15-mile stretch of road that’s powered with electric cables. The UK hopes to build a more expansive network but will begin with an 18-month pilot.  The UK has been pumping money into new technologies for its aging infrastructure. Highways England, the government agency responsible for the country’s motorways, is already committed to placing plug-in charging stations every 20 miles along its major A1 roads. This is part of the government’s Road Investment Strategy, in which the government will spend $17 billion to modernize its transit systems.

Eating Insects. Overcoming the Western Yuck Factor - Quality Assurance & Food Safety

Eating Insects. Overcoming the Western Yuck Factor - Quality Assurance & Food Safety | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Most food companies are concerned with insects as adulterants in the products they produce. But a new wave of food products is intentionally including insects and labeling them as a key ingredient in the food. To expose the industry to this evolving food option, this QA Profile focuses on the breeding and manufacturing of insects as human food, its founding as a sustainable food option, the food safety and quality aspects of these unique products, and the challenges of overcoming the Western “Yuck Factor” to turn these sustainable foods from trend to mainstream. To get to the meat of the story (so to speak), QA Editor Lisa Lupo toured Big Cricket Farms, the first U.S. edible-insect farm; visited with the founder of Chapul, the manufacturer of the first U.S. commercial insect-flour product; and, yes, had her first bite of crickets—both crunchy whole and as a protein-rich ingredient.

ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape

ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
QADIYA, Iraq — In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.

He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her.

When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion.

The Richest 400 People Lost $306 Billion Last Week, Enough to Fund Free College for Every U.S. Student for Four Years

The Richest 400 People Lost $306 Billion Last Week, Enough to Fund Free College for Every U.S. Student for Four Years | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
The world’s richest 400 people lost a collective $306 billion in the stock market last week. To put that number in perspective, that’s enough to fund the entire U.S. food stamp program for nearly four years. Or we could provide tuition-free college for everyone in the U.S. for four years.

The evaporation of trillions in financial wealth in mere days is obviously a tremendous waste –and in a world of obscene poverty– morally indefensible. Senator Bernie Sanders has proposed a solution: tax Wall Street to pay for tuition-free enrollment at every public university in the nation.

As the diagram below demonstrates, Senator Sanders’ Wall Street sales tax (also known as a Robin Hood tax) is remarkably simple. You and I pay sales tax on almost everything we buy, from clothing to cars, food and drinks, cable and phone bills, health insurance, and well, you get the picture. Even groceries are subjected to sales tax in 10 states. Yet Wall Street hedge funds and banks don’t pay sales tax on their financial transactions which amount to trillions every day.

Tesla's High End Disruption Gamble

Tesla's High End Disruption Gamble | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
By Jeff Dyer, David Bryce For adherents of classic disruptive innovation theory, Tesla’s potential as a market disruptor is minimal. After all, the company doesn’t go after low-end, price-sensitive customers who are over-served by current vehicles; they don’t pursue “non-consumption” (customers who don’t currently drive cars); and the technology didn’t start out [...]

Richard Platt's curator insight, August 24, 2:53 PM

Tesla’s strategy does not follow the common disruptive mold because it doesn’t have to.  Instead, Elon Musk pursues what we call a “high-end” disruption strategy, an approach that can be just as troublesome for incumbents. High-end disruption is about producing innovations that are “leap frog” in nature making them difficult for incumbents to rapidly imitate.  Then, instead of using technology to improve performance over time, they use technology to lower costs per unit of performance over time.    Our 5 years of research on the phenomenon indicates that Tesla could become a textbook case.  [ii]  In stark contrast to the low-end variety, high-end disruptive innovations outperform existing products on key performance dimensions at introduction; they sell for a premium price rather than a discount; and they target incumbent’s most profitable customers, often going after the most discriminating and least price-sensitive buyers before spreading to mainstream markets.  History provides sharp examples: Apple’s iPod outplays the Sony Walkman; Starbucks’ high end coffee drinks and atmosphere drowns out local coffee shops; flash drives zoom past zip drives and floppy disks; Garmin’s GPS golf watches have taken much of the business from range finders; and Dyson’s vacuum cleaners have dropped prices from $3000 to $300 and continue to grow market share.  The incumbents didn’t react fast enough and the high-end disruptors successfully invaded their markets.  The big question facing incumbent automakers protecting over $1 trillion in sales: Will Tesla’s strategy work? It appears to be playing out well so far, as evidenced by Tesla’s recent debut at the number one spot on our Most Innovative Companies List this year and discussed in more depth in the article Decoding Tesla’s Secret Formula.

Don’t want Google to track your Internet habits? There’s a website for that | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Whether through the ads it serves, queries it handles, emails it scans, or sensors it tracks, Google knows a lot about you. Most of that information’s given voluntarily with the understanding that better service sometimes requires sacrificing a bit of privacy, but sometimes we all have second thoughts about sharing certain information. Recently, Google introduced My Account, a unified dashboard that presents the settings of all the Google products you’ve opted into over the years, to give you more control over your data.

In the past, Google didn’t make reclaiming your information easy. Previously, you had to visit the settings pages of the individual services and apps in question — but that’s finally changing in a major way. My Accounts walks users through an easy step-by-step overview of their privacy and security settings. My Accounts divides your data into three primary categories: sign-in and security, personal info and privacy, and account settings.

Picture Recipes with step by step pictures, food facts and quick tips for the kitchen, cooking tips and more..

 

Hi! I’m Noreen and I’m the ultimate foodie. I love to cook, eat, read cookbooks, watch cooking shows and talk a whole lot about food. Food to me is an endless topic. I could learn, eat and talk about food every day of my life and not get bored.

I worked as a content writer for a number of years, talking about topics I didn’t really care very much about, but it paid the bills. And I have to admit that it taught me a tremendous amount about the internet world, social media and the type of content out there. I recently married the love of my life who’s in the website business as well, and moved a staggering 8,000 miles away from my home in India to the United States. It didn’t take long for my husband to see my obsession with food, as I spend the majority of my time in the kitchen testing new recipes, while watching the food network or eating. He also quickly learned to be patient with me as I took pictures of everything we ordered at restaurants, before he could dig in. It’s his encouragement and persuasion (read as nagging) today, that has made me open my kitchen doors and share my simple escapades in the kitchen with you all.

This blog is my passion and includes all things that I love…food, photography, dinking around with photoshop. I hope you enjoy the recipes and all I have to share here. Feel free to leave comments, suggestions or e-mail me at noreen@picturetherecipe.com. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter and  Pinterest
