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.

The 2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Is ‘Jaw Droppingly Brilliant’

The 2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Is ‘Jaw Droppingly Brilliant’ | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Take a seat in a Bugatti and the rest is history.

 

The 2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is a truly amazing automobile. It can only be described with powerful terms for its invincible-like power.

It generates an enormous 1,001 horsepower, comes with a $1,487,640 price tag, and is equipped with an incredible 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W16-cylinder engine, which is connected to a computer-controlled seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic.

The all-wheel drive Veyron can effortlessly cruise at 200 mph and beyond. As a matter of fact, if it weren’t for its creative aerodynamics, which keeps it on the road even at high speed, it would literally lift the car off the ground.

It takes this exceptional car only 2.5 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph and it needs even less time–a mere 2.3 seconds–to come to a standstill.

History of Scotland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

History of Scotland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

People lived in Scotland for at least 8,500 years before recorded history dealt with Britain. At times during the last interglacial period (130,000-70,000 BC) Europe had a climate warmer than today's, and early humans may have made their way to Scotland, with the discovery of ten pre-ice age axes on Orkney and mainland Scotland.

Christopher Hitchens: Should the Government Keep Secrets? National Security Debate (1987) - YouTube

 

Published on 15 Sep 2014

National security is the requirement to maintain the survival of the state through the use of economic power, diplomacy, power projection and political power. The concept developed mostly in the United States after World War II. Initially focusing on military might, it now encompasses a broad range of facets, all of which impinge on the non military or economic security of the nation and the values espoused by the national society. Accordingly, in order to possess national security, a nation needs to possess economic security, energy security, environmental security, etc. Security threats involve not only conventional foes such as other nation-states but also non-state actors such as violent non-state actors, narcotic cartels, multinational corporations and non-governmental organisations; some authorities include natural disasters and events causing severe environmental damage in this category.

Scandinavian Scotland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Scandinavian Scotland

Scandinavian Scotland refers to the period from the 8th to the 15th centuries during which Vikings and Norse settlers and their descendents colonised parts of what is now modern Scotland.

Scandinavian Scotland refers to the period from the 8th to the 15th centuries during which Vikings and Norse settlers and their descendents colonised parts of what is now modern Scotland. Viking influence in the area commenced in the late 8th century, and hostility between the Scandinavian Earls of Orkney and the emergingthalassocracy of the Kingdom of the Isles, the rulers of Ireland, Dál Riata and Alba, and intervention by the crown of Norway were recurring themes.

Scandinavian-held territories included the Northern Isles of Orkney and Shetland, the Hebrides, the islands of the Firth of Clyde, the Isle of Man and associated mainland territories including Caithness and Sutherland. The historical record is weak and the Irish annals and the later Norse sagas, of which the Orkneyinga Saga is the principal source of information, are sometimes contradictory although modern archaeology is beginning to provide a broader picture of life during this period.

There are various competing theories that have addressed the early colonisation process although it is clear that the Northern Isles were the first to be conquered by Vikings and the last to be relinquished by the Norwegian crown. Thorfinn Sigurdsson's rule in the 11th century included expansion well into north mainland Scotland and this may have been the zenith of Scandinavian influence. The obliteration of pre-Norse names in the Hebrides and their replacement with Norse ones was almost total although the emergence of alliances with the native Gaelic speakers produced a powerful Norse-Gael culture that had wide influence in Argyll, Galloway and beyond.

Direktrapportering: ValdagenMaktskifte efter valet

Efter söndagens val stod de rödgröna som segrare. Socialdemokraterna och Miljöpartiet kommer att inleda samtal för att bilda en ny regering, men det finns fortfarande flera frågetecken.

Samtidigt som Fredrik Reinfeldt (M) tillkännagav att han avgår som statsminister, gav han även det överraskande beskedet att han kommer att lämna posten som Moderaternas partiledare till våren.

Valresultatet kom till mycket att präglas av Sverigedemokraternas framgång, partiet mer än fördubblade sitt stöd sedan förra valet. De är nu Sveriges tredje största parti och får en vågmästarroll. Samtidigt lyckades inte Feministiskt initiativ ta sig över fyraprocentspärren, och kommer alltså inte in i riksdagen.

SVT direktrapporterade hela valdagen, läs hela vår rapportering här!

[INFOGRAPHIC] Autonomous Cars Could Save The US $1.3 Trillion Dollars A Year

[INFOGRAPHIC] Autonomous Cars Could Save The US $1.3 Trillion Dollars A Year | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
According to Morgan Stanley, autonomous cars could save the US $1.3 trillion dollars a year.

 

The autonomous car is coming. We've been hearing that since the grainy black and white sci-fi flicks of the 1950s. But today, we're closer than ever to seeing the autonomous car become a reality. With everyone from Google to Nissan working on autonomous technology, the streets may soon be filled with driverless cars.

 

All the hype aside, what real impact will autonomous cars have in the coming years?

A recent study conducted by Columbia University said that replacing New York's fleet of 13,000 yellow cabs with 9,000 driverless cars could cut costs per mile by nearly 88% and wait times down from 5 minutes to just 36 seconds during rush hour.

But that's just for cabs in New York. What about for the US as a whole? 

Using data from Morgan Stanley, the guys at NeoMam Studios put together this infographic to explore the issue:
