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.

Som svar på EU och USA:s sanktioner stoppade Ryssland i somras införseln av flera livsmedel, vilket bland annat påverkat svenska mejerier.

Nu utökas sanktionerna ytterligare. Den här gången är det i första hand sidoprodukter från nöt- och svinkött som inälvor, fetter och köttmjöl som stoppas.

Produkterna används bland annat i djurfoder och charkvaror som kan vara svåra att sälja på andra platser.

Over 2200 Architects & Engineers Crush The ‘Official’ 9/11 Commission Report

Over 2200 Architects & Engineers Crush The ‘Official’ 9/11 Commission Report | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

9/11 Truth – A set of words that have become one of the most popular subjects of the past decade both on and off the internet. A subject that has become so popular and that has educated so many people that polls suggest more than 50% of the world doesn’t believe the official story put out by the American Government in the “9/11 Commission Report.”

For a long time, people have been ridiculed for questioning the official story -being called conspiracy theorists, anti-American, crazy and many more derogatory names. But does it make sense to put these people into this category given all of the evidence that exists to suggest the official story isn’t true? We aren’t talking about far reaching theories that can sometimes be found on internet websites, but actual hard scientific evidence.

Apple could make SIM cards a thing of the past

Marshall Gass's curator insight, October 20, 3:41 PM

The SIM card has been a painful exercise where technological advances are concerned. Imagine carrying a silly designed pin, storing it in a safe place and fumbling around each time you want to change a card. 'Embedding' the technology is definitely the better way to go.

 

A simple solution, Internet based, app. locking and unlocking SIMs , without fidgety little gadgets would easily save on a few headaches. Cellphones with such advanced technology would rapidly gain market share. Apple is ahead in thinking like this.

 

It would be a smart move for a small business to start-up an adapter-like SIM that would fit into any brand of cellphone! Simple logic says that if you take away that prized bull from ISPs who manipulate the SIMs to 'keep' customers-then you create competition and a price drop immediately by transferring choice to the customer-and away from the company.

The Best Gravlax Recipe On The Internet: Now In English And Metric Units!

The Best Gravlax Recipe On The Internet: Now In English And Metric Units! | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Gravlax, Gravad Lax, Gravet Laks, Gravlaks, Graflax, Graavilohi, Graavilõhe
Gravlax (also known as gravad lax, gravet laks, gravlaks, graflax, graavilohi, or graavilõhe, depending on which Nordic country you’re from) was traditionally made by salting salmon and burying it in a hole dug at the ocean’s edge, just above the high tide line. Today we will improve on that technique by using refrigeration and fresh herbs.

Why This Gravlax Recipe Is The Best
First, I’ve stripped the process down to the essentials, skipping steps that don’t matter and streamlining the rest.

More importantly, though, most gravlax recipes add far too much salt—and then depend on ending the cure at exactly the right time. Too early, and the salmon is still mushy. Too late, and the surface is hard and salt-burned…and the outside always seems to end up harder than the inside no matter what you do.

In this recipe, however, you’ll use the correct amount of salt and sugar to cure the fish, and no more. Not only will it taste better, you won’t have to worry about timing!

(Note: if you’re willing to do the extra work and want the strictly traditional dish, here’s how. And if you disagree that this recipe is the best, feel free to leave a comment!)

Canal du Midi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Canal du Midi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Canal du Midi ( Occitan: Canal de las Doas Mars, meaning canal of the two seas) is a 241 km (150 mi) long canal in Southern France ( French: le Midi). It was originally named the Canal royal en Languedoc (Royal Canal in Languedoc) but the French revolutionaries renamed it to Canal du Midi in 1789.

The Canal du Midi (Occitan: Canal de las Doas Mars, meaning canal of the two seas) is a 241 km (150 mi) long canal in Southern France (French: le Midi). It was originally named the Canal royal en Languedoc (Royal Canal in Languedoc) but the French revolutionaries renamed it to Canal du Midi in 1789. It was considered at the time to be one of the greatest construction works of the 17th century.[1]

The canal connects the Garonne River to the Étang de Thau on the Mediterranean and along with the 193 km (120 mi) long Canal de Garonne forms the Canal des Deux Mers joining the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. The canal runs from the city of Toulouse down to the Étang de Thau near the Mediterranean.

Strictly speaking, the Canal du Midi means that part initially built from Toulouse to the Mediterranean — the Deux-Mers canal project aimed to link together several sections of navigable waterways to join the Mediterranean and the Atlantic: first the Canal du Midi, then the Garonne which was more or less navigable between Toulouse and Bordeaux, then the Garonne Lateral Canal built later, and finally the Gironde estuary after Bordeaux.

It was the wheat trade that motivated the construction of the canal. Colbert authorized the commencement of work by a royal edict of October 1666. Under the supervision of Pierre-Paul Riquet the construction took from 1666 to 1681 during the reign of Louis XIV. The Canal du Midi is one of the oldest canals of Europe still in operation (the prototype being the Briare Canal). The challenges in these works are closely related to the challenges of river transport in modern times. The key challenge, raised by Pierre-Paul Riquet, was to convey water from the Montagne Noire (Black Mountains) to the Seuil de Naurouze, the highest point of the canal.

It was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
