- MARK ZUCKERBERG WARNS
ELON MUSK MORE PEOPLE WILL DIE IF WE 'SLOW DOWN PROGRESS' ON
By Paula Bolyard - May 24, 2018 - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
blasted Elon Musk over his criticism of artificial intelligence
at the Viva Technology conference in Paris on Thursday, suggesting
that his fellow tech pioneer is holding back progress with his
His comments were in response to a question from the moderator
about whether he was on friendly terms with Musk. "I don't
want to create a problem between you and Elon," the moderator
said, "but I would very much like to hear your opinion.
Musk has been extremely skeptical about artificial intelligence.
He wants to kill everything which has to do with artificial intelligence."
Musk, who's company Tesla is at the forefront of self-driving
car technology, told attendees at the SXSW conference last year
that he believes AI is more dangerous than nuclear warheads.
"I am really quite close, I am very close, to the cutting
edge in AI and it scares the hell out of me," said Musk.
"It's capable of vastly more than almost anyone knows and
the rate of improvement is exponential." U.S. safety regulators
are in the process of investigating 25,000 Tesla vehicles after
recent fatalities at the hands of the vehicles.
SLIDE ACCELERATES SINCE CONGRESS WARNED BITCOIN POSES THREAT
- by Tyler Durden - June 28, 2018
- Bitcoin has tumbled back below $6,000 in early Asia trading
and the rest of the crypto space is following suit. No imediate
catalyst for the move - aside from technical pressure - but tougher
AML rules in South Korea and US Congress being told Bitcoin is
a threat to the US election may have sparked it earlier in the
week and this is follow-through.
- Bitcoin can't catch a bid off
the weekend's $6,000 slump...
And as usual, the rest of crypto is following (though we note
that Bitcoin had been steady as the rest of crypto fell)... As
we noted, other than just momentum running through the psychological
$6,000 barrier, there is little immediate headline catalyst.
- But two stories of note this week
may have helped drive some of the weakness. As CoinTelegraph
reports, South Koreas top financial regulator has released
a set of revised anti-money laundering (AML) guidelines for virtual
currencies, according to a press release published this week.
- The press release notes that the
Financial Services Commission (FSC) conducted on-site inspections
of three domestic banks - Nonghyup, Kookmin, and Hana Bank -
the results of which prompted the update to AML guidelines.
- The new guidelines note that cryptocurrency
exchanges must conduct Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and Enhanced
Customer Identification (EDD) to ensure the trade purposes and
funding sources of users are legitimate. If a business refuses
or is unable to provide information for customer verification,
the guidelines note that any transactions from that entity must
be rejected or terminated.
- According to the revised guidelines,
crypto exchanges are also responsible for making certain that
foreigners are not using local crypto exchanges, criminals are
not using the personal accounts of other people to launder money,
and that there are no suspicious transactions and payment processing,
CCN news site writes.
- And, as CCN reports, for a significant
part of 2017 and even this year, social media platforms have
taken a lot of heat over their alleged role in influencing the
2016 U.S. presidential election. And for a period of time on
Tuesday during a congressional hearing, cryptocurrencies were
put in the same spot at least with regards to the future.
- According to Dueweke, the danger
of using virtual currencies to influence the U.S. electoral process
is acuter now considering that there are state actors who are
hostile to the United States that are turning to cryptocurrencies
as a way of bypassing the financial system of the West as well
as its Anti-Money Laundering and Know-Your-Client regulatory
requirements. Per Dueweke Russia was a particularly big threat.
- Considering that a large
percentage of global criminal hackers and many cybercriminals
are Russian or speak Russian (it is estimated that 25% of Darknet
content is Russian), and given Russias current state of
tension with the United States and Europe, this development should
be closely monitored, Dueweke warned in his prepared testimony.
- This comes about a week since
the U.S. Secret Services Office of Investigations deputy
director, Robert Novy, called on lawmakers to enact legislation
which would curb the use of anonymity-enhanced cryptocurrencies
or privacy coins. Novy was testifying before a Terrorism and
Illicit Finance subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives
Committee on Financial Services.

SMALL CELL TOWERS FROM BEING INSTALLED NEAR HOMES
By B.N. Frank - Since 2004, firefighters have been vocal about
not wanting cell towers and antennas on station property because
of radiation exposure. According to a June 25, 2018 C-NBC interview
with Verizon Chairman and CEO, Lowell McAdam, We are closer
than people think to installing 5G everywhere including
in front of homes. Verizon CEO On The Future Of 5G CNBC -
Many have reported concerns about this including Dr. Oz. Even
if you arent concerned about radiation exposure, cell towers
have been reported as collapsing and catching fire. If one shows
up near your home, it will reduce your property value. The My
Street, My Choice! website contains information and links to
help residents fight 4G/5G Small Cell towers or Close Proximity
Microwave Radiation Antennas (CPMRA) from being installed
in their communities. Cell towers and antennas have already been
proven to be health, safety and liability hazards. Other guides
are available online including one from the EMF Safety Network.
In September 2017, 180 scientists and doctors demanded a moratorium
on the installation of 5G small cell tower infrastructure due
to biological and environmental risks. More have joined since
then. Many doctors, environmental organizations, and more are
speaking out against small cell towers and 5G. Spain held a day
of protest against 5G last week. Dr. Naomi Wolf has been posting
on social media about how 5G is affecting New Yorkers. People
and their pets are experiencing symptoms from exposure. The Telecom
Industry (aka Big Wireless) doesnt care.
- They want to install their infrastructure
everywhere. If you are in the U.S, it may already been installed
throughout your community without you knowing it. Many U.S. elected
officials as well as current and former government employees
also dont seem to care. They are trying to force this infrastructure
on unwilling communities across the country. Some community leaders
are also promoting Smart Cities which entails hundreds
of small cell towers being installed including in front of homes,
in public rights-of-ways, etc. Some elected officials are trying
to stop 4G and 5G installation. One is Senator Patrick Colbeck

and treatment of cancer than highly skilled physicians. We will
soon be hearing, The algorithm will see you now

me? Can I get a diagnosis? Whats that? AI [artificial intelligence]
is handling it now? You mean I just go online and see the results
of my tests and read the diagnosis and pick up my drugs outside
my front door? Wow. Very nice.
- Really? Is it very nice?
- As AI creeps and crawls into the
realm of medical diagnosis and treatment, and as it spreads under
the banner of more precise care for the patient,
remember that AI embeds false data more firmly than any human
doctor can. Once its in there, how do you get rid of it?
- Im sorry, sir. There
is no human to speak with. All our data are produced by algorithms
- For example, suppose the flu you
have isnt the flu? Suppose its something else? AI
would still diagnose you with flu, based on your profile of symptoms,
and you could be prescribed a toxic antiviral drug you dont
need, and also put on a warning list of people whose flu shot
isnt up to date.
- Dr. Peter Doshi, writing in the
online BMJ (British Medical Journal), reveals a monstrosity.
- As Doshi states, every year hundreds
of thousands of respiratory samples are taken from flu patients
in the US and tested in labs. Here is the kicker: only a small
percentage of these samples show the presence of a flu virus.

- In November 1, 2008, a man named
Satoshi Nakamoto posted a research paper to an obscure cryptography
listserv describing his design for a new digital currency that
he called bitcoin. None of the list's veterans had heard of him,
and what little information could be gleaned was murky and contradictory.
In an online profile, he said he lived in Japan. His email address
was from a free German service. Google searches for his name
turned up no relevant information; it was clearly a pseudonym.
But while Nakamoto himself may have been a puzzle, his creation
cracked a problem that had stumped cryptographers for decades.
- The idea of digital moneyconvenient
and untraceable, liberated from the oversight of governments
and bankshad been a hot topic since the birth of the Internet.
Cypherpunks, the 1990s movement of libertarian cryptographers,
dedicated themselves to the project. Yet every effort to create
virtual cash had foundered. Ecash, an anonymous system launched
in the early 1990s by cryptographer David Chaum, failed in part
because it depended on the existing infrastructures of government
and credit card companies. Other proposals followedbit
gold, RPOW, b-moneybut none got off the ground.

- Because there are so many major
investments in Bitcoin and Bitcoin technology there are efforts
underway to create ETFs for Bitcoin. ETF is an exchange-traded
fund. A Bitcoin ETF could greatly increase the value of the currency.
But in order for an ETF to be legally established, it must get
approval from the SEC. Curious how SEC acceptance of a Bitcoin
ETF may impact price?
- Read the headlines like this one:
- "As Bitcoin ETF Nears, Analysts
Warn of Trading Frenzy" from the Wall Street Journal.
- An ETF is an exchange-traded fund,
meaning a much larger audience of investors can invest and trade
- As of March 2017, two requests
by companies to create a Bitcoin ETF were denied by the Securities
Exchange Commission (SEC).
- However, as there are still outstanding
applications pending, the formation of an ETF could mean big
gains for Bitcoin value.

New AI can mimic human movement after seeing it just one time,

why is not as important as what. TN Editor
- A new breed of AI-powered robots
could soon mimic almost any action after watching a human do
them just once.
- Scientists have developed a clawed
machine that can learn new tasks, such as dropping a ball into
a bowl or picking up a cup, simply by viewing a person perform
- Researchers said the trick allows
the android to master new skills much faster than other robots,
and could one day lead to machines capable of learning complex
tasks purely through observation much like humans and

Tianhe Yu wrote in a blog post: Learning a new skill by
observing another individual, the ability to imitate, is a key
part of intelligence in human and animals. Such a capability
would make it dramatically easier for us to communicate new goals
to robots we could simply show robots what we want them
- Developed by engineers at the
University of California at Berkeley, the robot quickly learns
new actions by watching a person do it on video. Clips of the
android show it picking up fruit and putting it into a bowl,
as well as carefully moving around an obstacle following the
same path demonstrated by a scientist. Most machines, such as
the robots in car factories, are programmed to complete tasks

SIGN PLEDGE AGAINST DEVELOPING LETHAL A.I.
- July 19, 2018 - By Aaron Kesel
- Thousands of leading scientists have urged their colleagues
against helping governments create killer robots, making the
movie The Terminator a reality. 2,400 scientists have pledged
to block the development of lethal weaponry using Artificial
Intelligence, The Guardian reported.
- In other words, killer robots,
that could eventually develop a mind of their own and take over
the world. Scientists have vowed they will not support robots
that can identify and attack people without human oversight.
Two leading experts backing the commitment, Demis Hassabis at
Google DeepMind and Elon Musk at SpaceX, are among the more than
2,400 signatories whom have pledged to deter military firms and
nations from building lethal autonomous weapon systems, referred
to as Laws.
- The move is the latest from concerned
scientists and organizations about giving a machine the power
to choose someones fate of life or death.
- The pledge organized by The Future
of Life Institute, calls on governments to agree on norms, laws,
and regulations that stigmatize and effectively outlaw the development
of killer robots.
- The signatories of the pledge
have stated they will neither participate in nor support
the development, manufacture, trade, or use of lethal autonomous
weapons. More than 150 AI-related firms and organizations
added their names to the pledge that was announced at the International
Joint Conference on AI in Stockholm.
- Robots are beginning to take over
every aspect of society. They are also headed for retail businesses
delivering freight and eliminating truckers.
- But, can we really give robots
the choice whether to kill or let a human being live?
In fact, it sounds quite dangerous allowing a freight truck to
drive itself; if the sensors break down on a big rig truck going
60-70 MPH, thats potentially 40 tons barreling down the
highway unattended except by artificial intelligence.

- CHINA'S AI "GODDESS"
AND THE EAST/WEST AI COMPETITION
- August 13, 2018 - By Benjamin
Fulford - Weekly Reports - Last year, Russian President Vladimir
Putin said whoever leads in AI (Artificial Intelligence) will
control the world. The Chinese took these words seriously
and are investing huge sums of money in an effort to create an
AI Goddess. They hope it will give them unprecedented
powers and help them in their bid to form a world government,
according to members of Asian secret societies.
- The West, for its part, is building
a quantum-based financial system they hope will allow them to
continue to control the main source of world power the
international financial system. This battle is serious, and it
even led to the Chinese supercomputer Tainhe-1 at one
point the worlds fastest to be blown up by unknown
parties on August 12, 2015. The fact that this explosion came
immediately after a sudden unannounced 4% devaluation in the
Chinese yuan was almost certainly no coincidence. The fact that
the European-headed IMF supported this move shows that the European
faction of the Khazarian mafia was in on the plot.
Clearly, some sort of Chinese and European Khazarian attempt
to use the devaluation and the supercomputer to destabilize U.S.
dollar-based Western financial system did take place and was
met with a kinetic response.
- Now fast-forward to the third-year
anniversary of this explosion. As of June 2018, the U.S. Department
of Energy surpassed the Chinese with the worlds fastest
publicly acknowledged computer. The system called Summit
can process 200,000 trillion calculations per second,
or 200 petaflops. Thats eight times faster than Americas
former top supercomputer, the Titan, and it maintains a big lead
over Chinas 93 - petaflop TaihuLight, which had been the
worlds fastest supercomputer since 2016.
- No doubt the Chinese will soon
announce something even faster than that as the AI arms
race continues. These days, though, the Chinese, instead
of concentrating on finance, are taking a different tack with
a Goddess project. Representatives of an Asian secret
society explained the goals of the new Goddess project to this
writer earlier this summer. As it now exists, the Goddess can
identify anybodys face and within 7 seconds pull up all
the data available on that person such as their blood type.
The data also almost certainly includes (to those who are authorized
access) the persons educational records, medical records,
criminal records (if any), their address, family members, close
friends, insurance, private messages, financial situation, gaming
duration, smart-home statistics, preferred newspapers, shopping
history, dating behavior, their social credit score,
etc. All of this within 7 seconds. They can also follow a person
anywhere on earth, the sources say.
- The real aim of this Goddess project,
though, is to...

tests, but it might lead to privacy violations. August 11, 2018
BY STEVEN MELENDEZ 3 MINUTE READ - Cybersecurity firm Trustwave
has released an open source tool to find accounts of large volumes
of people across social media platforms by automatically matching
names and profile pictures. The company says the tool, called
Social Mapper, is designed for penetration testers who often
phish employees at client companies to test security measures
and gain access to computers. By showing how actual attackers
can convince workers to give up their login credentials to scammers,
testers can help companies put in training and technical countermeasures
to make those attacks less feasible.
- The tool basically came
out of necessity, says Karl Sigler, threat intelligence
manager at Trustwave. Over the years weve discovered
that a lot of the compromises and breaches that we get engaged
in, in general the initial footprint, comes from a social engineering
- Social Mapper users provide their
own login credentials to various social networks, along with
a file specifying names and facial images of the people theyre
interested in targeting. The tool then logs into specified social
networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, VKontakte and
Weibo and uses the sites search tools and open source facial
recognition tools to find and log likely matches. Once they find
matches, they can either friend the users on the social media
sites and send them phishing links or use data from the sites
to craft personalized phishing emails, Trustwave researcher Jacob
Wilkins suggested in a blog post.

AI TO BREAK THE BEAST DEFENSES
- Reuters - August 9, 2018
- Technocracy promises Scientific
Dictatorship in the end. If IBM now admits that their engineers
can do it, you can be certain that U.S. Intelligence agencies
have been doing it for some time. Targeted hacking is potentially
the most malicious and destructive type of surveillance in history.
In the hands of rogue intel, all details are laid bare before
them. TN Editor
- The nightmare scenario for computer
security artificial intelligence programs that can learn
how to evade even the best defenses may already have arrived.
- That warning from security researchers
is driven home by a team from IBM Corp. who have used the artificial
intelligence technique known as machine learning to build hacking
programs that could slip past top-tier defensive measures. The
group will unveil details of its experiment at the Black Hat
security conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday.
- State-of-the-art defenses generally
rely on examining what the attack software is doing, rather than
the more commonplace technique of analyzing software code for
danger signs. But the new genre of AI-driven programs can be
trained to stay dormant until they reach a very specific target,
making them exceptionally hard to stop.
- No one has yet boasted of catching
any malicious software that clearly relied on machine learning
or other variants of artificial intelligence, but that may just
be because the attack programs are too good to be caught.
- Researchers say that, at best,
its only a matter of time. Free artificial intelligence
building blocks for training programs are readily available from
Alphabet Incs Google and others, and the ideas work all
too well in practice.

SCARY: CHINA EXPLORES
USING AI TO SHAPE FOREIGN POLICY
- China is using artificial intelligence
as a tool to help it decide its foreign policy, detaching from
the emotions of useless humans that get in the way of the thought
process. What could possibly go wrong allowing A.I. to help decide
foreign policy with other countries?
- The South China Morning Post has
reported that "Several prototypes of diplomatic systems
using artificial intelligence are under development in China,
according to researchers involved or familiar with the projects."
- The Post notes that "one
early-stage machine, built by the Chinese Academy of Sciences,
is already being used by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs."
If it's still not worrying you that robotic algorithms could
be deciding foreign policy in China with other nations, the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs further confirmed to the South China Morning
Post that they had plans to use A.I. in diplomacy.
- "Cutting-edge technology,
including big data and artificial intelligence, is causing profound
changes to the way people work and live. The applications in
many industries and sectors are increasing on daily basis,"
a Ministry spokesman said last month, the news agency reported.
- According to SCMP, the decision
process by the A.I. takes into account "information ranging
from cocktail-party gossip to images taken by spy satellites,
to contribute to strategies in Chinese diplomacy."
- Although, the final decision is
in the hands of Chinese officials according to Fu Jingying, a
researcher with the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural
Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. The
fact that A.I. could be helping leaders and governments decide
whether or not to go to war or other important policy decisions
with a country is especially worrying. However, the use of A.I.
would not only implant decisions without human emotion into these
officials' heads over a period of time until it was seen as acceptable,
but it would eventually shift politics into allowing algorithms
and these systems to decide strategic decisions by itself passing
the technology off as an advancement. This is exactly what China
wants for its next generation of these machines according to

- THE FUTURE OF BITCOIN
& THE SEC'S ETF DECISION! THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING
- World Alternative Media - Jul
29, 2018 - Featuring: Josh Sigurdson & John Sneisen - Graphics
by Bryan Foerster and Josh Sigurdson
- Josh Sigurdson talks with author
and economic analyst John Sneisen about the most recent SEC decision
on Bitcoin as they deny the proposed Winkelvoss ETF.
- Interestingly, the SEC commissioner,
Hester Peirce actually disagreed with the decision saying she
thought the wrong choice was made.
- Peirce claimed Bitcoin is an asset,
is regulated and matured enough to be worthy of US markets.
- Nonetheless, the SEC's official
announcement said this,
The Commission addresses each of these arguments below.
In Section III.B, the Commission addresses BZXs assertion
that bitcoin and bitcoin markets, including the Gemini Exchange,
are uniquely resistant to manipulation and finds that the record
before the Commission does not support such a conclusion.
- So, the SEC, master manipulators
claim that Bitcoin's market can be manipulated? Isn't that rich!
- In 2017, when the Bitcoin Futures
announcement was made, Bitcoin skyrocketed to 20k, but fell like
a rock upon the release of the futures. So, like the futures
announcement, if the SEC were to announce the release of a Bitcoin
ETF, it would be met by a temporary bull rally but a massive
bubble burst. That's what happens when you mess with derivatives
and paper contracts, it's price manipulation, nothing more, nothing
less. It's not responsible to get caught up in such a centralized
market. Bitcoin on its own stands to be an incredibly revolutionary
tool to end the central banking system. To get involved in worthless
ETFs is not smart.
- Gold and silver are dramatically
manipulated and artificially held down by ETFs and bank manipulation,
but they too will rise upon the fall of the banking system which
is inevitable considering the bankruptcy of the major banks and
the fall of all fiat systems throughout history.
- The regulations on cryptocurrencies
are overall futile. They will not stand the test of time. The
central banking system and government is desperate to unroll
the new, centrally planned cashless society to replace the current
system as it reaches its end. This will conflict with the decentralized
cashless system, competing for the best on the free market. It
will come down to the education of the masses to understand the
VAST difference between the two and pick freedom over dependence.
We must choose decentralization over central planning.
- In this video, we explain the
differences and the future of decentralized competing cryptocurrencies.
This is just the beginning.

- Whats the technology behind
- To understand 5G, its helpful
to understand what came before it. Broadly, the first generation
of mobile technology, 1G, was about voice. The ability to use
a phone in a car, or anywhere else, really took root here. The
advent of 2G introduced a short-messaging layerpieces of
which can still be seen in todays texting features. The
move to 3G provided the essential network speeds for smartphones.
And 4G, with its blazing data-transfer rates, gave rise to many
of the connected devices and services that we rely on and enjoy
- A discussion around 5G technology
is really a discussion around delivering life-changing technologies
through next-generation networks. Verizon's Ultra-Wide Band 5G
network will allow up to 100 times better throughput, 10 times
longer battery life and 1,000 times larger data volumes, all
while being 10 times more reliable. We are the only company with
the engineering experience, fiber assets, wireless millimeter
wave spectrum and partnerships to scale the transfer of massive
amounts of data at unimaginable speeds.
- This is all predicated on work
we began years ago to densify our 4G LTE network
in high population areas with small cell sites. And thanks to
Verizon's world-class engineers, we've laid the groundwork that
will transform the network and push the limits of 5G's potential
faster and more efficiently.
- Verizon's Ultra-Wide Band 5G has
the greatest potential to revolutionize industries, and provide
the most immediate impact for customers. In 2017 and early 2018,
we conducted field trials in 11 markets nationwideamong
them Ann Arbor, MI, Sacramento, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and
Houstonand they exceeded our expectations for how the technology
- Bottom line: Much of the pre-positioning
for our 5G network launch is already in place, including access
to the radio waves, fiber and small cellsall of which will
make the installation of 5G network equipment faster, and bring
next-generation technology to customers sooner.
- When and where will 5G be available?
- Verizon will be first to market
in the U.S. with both fixed and mobile versions of 5G technology.
We are taking a progressive approach to rolling out 5G, beginning
with super-fast broadband service in three to five markets in
2018, and will follow that with mobile 5G service, with plans
to expand deployments in 2019 and beyond.
- The cornerstone of our strategy
is to provide our customers with the best network experience.
That strategy has served us well, and has led the competition
to play catch-up. 5G is no different.
- We remain on track to deliver
on our 5G residential broadband deployment plans. The ecosystem
is developing quickly and were working with partners and
start-ups to discover new use cases for the technology.
- How fast will 5G be?
- 5G will provide more speed, data
transfer rates many times faster than a blink of an eye, massive
bandwidth and greater opportunities for connectivity and reliability.
One way to quantify the difference is in terms of download speeds.
- In our 5G trials, we achieved
download speeds roughly 30-50 times faster than what is possible
with 4G. Data moves so quickly on 5G that Ronan Dunne, our executive
vice president and group vice president, has argued:
- 5G isnt just another
iteration of wireless innovation, he says. Just as
the next generation of the television industry reinvented content
based on the unique properties of the medium itself, the potential
of the fifth generation of wireless technology demands that we
fundamentally rethink what can be done on a wireless platform.
- Thanks to its combination of greater
data transfer speeds and heightened processing power, 5G will
enable even more technology to connect, leading the Internet
of Things to be deployed on a truly massive scale. Today, there
are some 8.4 billion connected things in useup
31% from 2016. With 5G, that number will grow to more than 20.4
billion by 2020.
- Latency will be dramatically lowered.
On 4G, latency was cut in half from 3G, with response times of
15 and 60 milliseconds, versus 120 milliseconds on 3G. On Verizon's
Ultra-Wide Band 5G network, latency could drop to just 1 millisecond
or less, which would make lag times nearly impossible to detect.
- What will 5G be used for?
- A more appropriate question might
be, What couldnt 5G be used for? Rich, complex
information will be freed to move at scarcely imaginable speeds.
Those speeds, combined with lowered latency, will have far-reaching
effects on every sector of the economy.
- AR and VR applications can work
seamlessly. Industrial machinery and robotics can be controlled
remotely. Feature-length HD movies can be downloaded faster than
you can read this sentence.
- By 2035, 5G will enable
$12.3 trillion of global economic output and support 22 million
jobs worldwide. Much of that growth will come from the digitization
of transportation, agriculture, manufacturing and other physical
- Ronan Dunne, Executive Vice
President and Group President, Verizon Wireless
- In a 5G-powered tomorrow, entire
supply chains can be fundamentally reshaped. With its gigabit
speeds and unprecedented response times, 5G can be thought of
as the secret sauce that will make driverless cars,
cloud-connected traffic control and other applications that depend
on instantaneous response and data analysis live up to their
potential. The possibilities are limitless.

TO MAKE G5 WORK WITH WINDOWS 10?
G5 Plus MTP not recognized by Windows 10 system, BUT PTP recognized
July 3, 2018 - I would like to transfer (MTP) files from my G5
Plus to my Windows 10 (1803).
While PTP (photos) is working perfectly, the Windows 10 system
is NOT recognized by the Windows 10 system at all. NOTE: This
is different from other threads, where the phone and Windows
recognize each other, but you can't see files. Windows is not
seeing the G5 Plus only with MTP.
Steps (in a nut shell) thus far:
1) Enable developer mode.
2) Enable USB debuggings.
3) Reboot the phone.
4) Install on the Windows 10 system the Motorola USB device drivers
5) After Windos and phone reboot: Connect using (different) USB
cords the phone with the Windows 10 system (also used different
USB ports and controllers).
6) Select Transfer Files (MTP)
7) Observe on phone nothing new (e.g. portable) shows up.
8) Change to Photos (PTP) on the phone.
9) Observe a Moto G5 Plus camera appears on the Windows 10 system.
10) Double click the Moto G5 Plus camera and see two folders
(internal and SD card).
11) Open them and see photos
12) Change to Files (MTP) on the phone and the camera on the
desktop disappear and nothing replaces it (e.g. portable or Moto
G5 Plus, etc).

By Allan Holmes - March 2, 2018 - WASHINGTON The future
of cellular service is coming to a neighborhood near you. But
who gets to decide when, where and how it gets delivered is still
a heated fight. The new technology, known as 5G, delivers wireless
internet at far faster speeds than existing cellular connections.
But it also requires different hardware to deliver the signals.
Instead of relying on large towers placed far apart, the new
signals will come from smaller equipment placed an average of
500 feet apart in neighborhoods and business districts. Much
of the equipment will be on streetlights or utility poles, often
accompanied by containers the size of refrigerators on the ground.
More than 300,000 cell stations now provide wireless connections,
and 5G will bring hundreds of thousands perhaps millions
more. The prospect of their installation has many communities
and their officials, from Woodbury, N.Y., to Olympia, Wash.,
insisting that local governments control the placement and look
of the new equipment. They say that the cell stations could clutter
neighborhoods with eyesores and cost the communities a lot of

- NEW STUDY QUANTIFIES
BITCOIN'S LUDICROUS ENERGY CONSUMPTION
- Bitcoin could consume 7.7 gigawatts
by the end of 2018.
- Timothy B. Lee - May 17, 2018
Enlarge / The bitcoin network uses several times the 1.21 gigawatts
required to travel back in time.
- Universal Pictures
The bitcoin network is run by miners, computers that maintain
the shared transaction ledger called the blockchain. A new study
estimates that this process consumes at least 2.6GW of power
- almost as much electric power as Ireland consumes. This figure
could rise to 7.7GW before the end of 2018 - accounting for almost
half a percent of the world's electricity consumption.
Bitcoins insane energy consumption, explained The study
is an updated version of calculations performed late last year
by analyst Alex de Vries. In this new version, de Vries has gathered
more detailed information about the economics of the mining business.
But his new numbers are broadly consistent with the old ones.
Last December, he estimated that the bitcoin network was consuming
roughly 32TWh annually, or 3.65GW. His website, which is updated
daily, now shows the network consuming 67TWh annually, just under
that upper bound of 7.7GW shown in his new study.
- As de Vries makes clear in his
new paper, these numbers are necessarily speculative. Bitcoin
mining is a decentralized and secretive industry. We know how
much computing power the bitcoin network hasright now it's
about 30 million trillion SHA-256 hashes per second. But miners
are making these calculations on different types of hardware
with different levels of energy efficiency, so we can't convert
that figure directly to energy consumption.
- If you assume that the entire
network is using the most efficient known mining hardwarethe
Antminer S9 from Bitmainthat yields de Vries's lower bound
energy consumption of 2.6GW. However, we know that people are
using other, less efficient hardware, so the true energy consumption
is probably significantly higher.
- Economics provides an upper bound
on bitcoin's energy consumption
How much higher? To establish his upper bound of 7.7GW, de Vries
uses some economic reasoning. Bitcoin's rules allow the creator
of a block to award itself 12.5 bitcoinsworth more than
$100,000 at today's prices. With a new block being created every
10 minutes, that works out to around $15 million per day in mining
- FUEL CELL
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - (Redirected from Hydrogen
fuel cell) - For other uses, see Fuel cell (disambiguation).
Demonstration model of a direct-methanol fuel cell. The actual
fuel cell stack is the layered cube shape in the center of the
Scheme of a proton-conducting fuel cell
A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell that converts the chemical
energy from a fuel into electricity through an electrochemical
reaction of hydrogen fuel with oxygen or another oxidizing agent.
Fuel cells are different from batteries in requiring a continuous
source of fuel and oxygen (usually from air) to sustain the chemical
reaction, whereas in a battery the chemical energy comes from
chemicals already present in the battery. Fuel cells can produce
electricity continuously for as long as fuel and oxygen are supplied.
- The first fuel cells were invented
in 1838. The first commercial use of fuel cells came more than
a century later in NASA space programmes to generate power for
satellites and space capsules. Since then, fuel cells have been
used in many other applications. Fuel cells are used for primary
and backup power for commercial, industrial and residential buildings
and in remote or inaccessible areas. They are also used to power
fuel cell vehicles, including forklifts, automobiles, buses,
boats, motorcycles and submarines.
- There are many types of fuel cells,
but they all consist of an anode, a cathode, and an electrolyte
that allows positively charged hydrogen ions (protons) to move
between the two sides of the fuel cell. At the anode a catalyst
causes the fuel to undergo oxidation reactions that generate
protons (positively charged hydrogen ions) and electrons. The
protons flow from the anode to the cathode through the electrolyte
after the reaction. At the same time, electrons are drawn from
the anode to the cathode through an external circuit, producing
direct current electricity. At the cathode, another catalyst
causes hydrogen ions, electrons, and oxygen to react, forming
water. Fuel cells are classified by the type of electrolyte they
use and by the difference in startup time ranging from 1 second
for proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEM fuel cells, or PEMFC)
to 10 minutes for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). A related technology
is flow batteries, in which the fuel can be regenerated by recharging.
Individual fuel cells produce relatively small electrical potentials,
about 0.7 volts, so cells are "stacked", or placed
in series, to create sufficient voltage to meet an application's
requirements. In addition to electricity, fuel cells produce
water, heat and, depending on the fuel source, very small amounts
of nitrogen dioxide and other emissions. The energy efficiency
of a fuel cell is generally between 4060%; however, if
waste heat is captured in a cogeneration scheme, efficiencies
up to 85% can be obtained.
- The fuel cell market is growing,
and in 2013 Pike Research estimated that the stationary fuel
cell market will reach 50 GW by 2020. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_cell
- BLOOM ENERGY SERVER
- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bloom Energy Server (the Bloom Box) is a solid oxide fuel
cell (SOFC) power generator made by Bloom Energy, of Sunnyvale,
California, that takes a variety of input fuels, including liquid
or gaseous hydrocarbons produced from biological sources, to
produce electricity at or near the site where it will be used.
It can withstand temperatures of up to 1,800 °F (980 °C).
According to the company, a single cell (one 100 mm × 100
mm plate consisting of three ceramic layers) generates 25 watts.
- The fuel cells have an operational
life expectancy of around 10 years; based on predictions on fuel
costs, the "break even" point for those who purchase
the device is around 8 years. Several other companies competing
in the same energy market have demonstrated that their devices
function with greater operational efficiency than the Bloom Server,
and Forbes magazine has suggested that most of the Bloom Server's
reputation is based on hype rather than actual efficient operation
or savings in energy costs (see below). The cell's technology
continues to rely on non-renewable sources of energy to produce
electricity, and because it is not a hydrogen fuel cell, it still
produces carbon dioxide (an important greenhouse gas) during
- Bloom stated in 2011 that two
hundred servers had been deployed in California for corporations
including eBay, Google, Yahoo, and Wal-Mart. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom_Energy_Server

this year, is putting its money and technology into behind-the-meter
fuel cells from Bloom Energy -- and trying out a fuel cell-battery
combo in a select set of Home Depot stores to keep them running
when the grid goes down.
- On Tuesday, these companies announced
a strategic alliance that comes with a commitment from PowerSecure
to acquire 50 megawatts of Blooms fuel cells. PowerSecure
will offer them to its commercial and industrial customers through
no-money-down installations, and sell the power they generate
under long-term power-purchase agreements (PPAs) that lock in
favorable prices for years to come.
- Customers that have already signed
up for the deal include Home Depot, which is planning to add
60 stores to the 140 stores now using Bloom fuel cells, and another
customer -- likely existing Bloom customer Kaiser Permanente
-- that will deploy 30 megawatts supporting hospitals,
clinics and administrative centers.
- The 50-megawatt financing commitment
isnt a first for Bloom, which has raised about $1.2 billion
and is reported to have filed IPO plans. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based
company has been offering no-money-down financing and PPAs for
some time, through its Bloom Electrons offering and its 40-megawatt
deal with Exelon. PowerSecure and Bloom's new offering is its
third, and will target California, New Jersey, Massachusetts,
Connecticut and New York, Asim Hussain, Blooms vice president
of customer marketing, said in an interview.

THIS SHOCKING SOPHIA
ROBOT FOOTAGE SHOULD WORRY YOU?
I Love Robotics - Jun 23, 2018 - Sophia is a robot. A social
robot, according to her creator, the CEO of Hanson Robotics,
David Hanson, which means that she was designed to form relationships.
- Robots like Sophia will
come into peoples lives more through high-end applications,
so she can be used for education. She could help in factories.
She could help in search and rescue [
] she can go in to
comfort someone who is hurt, Mr. Hanson told UN News in
an interview on Wednesday after both were panellists at a UN
meeting on the future of everything,technological
change and development.
- Mr. Hanson sees himself as sort
of a jealous father, who is part parent, part
scientist and engineer, and part artist.
- He said the goal is to continue
developing such life forms, which entails programming
hormone release simulations, respiratory systems, and other body
cycles, so that they eventually explore their place in the world
on their own.
- That means that Sophias
AI is continuing to evolve.
- When asked where she sees herself
in five years, Sophia, which has just had arms added, said: I
see myself having legs, maybe being a famous stage entertainer.
I hope to learn new skills, too. In time, I will be able to predict
potential futures, even when millions of factors are involved,
to choose the best path for humanity.
Sophia is Hanson Robotics latest and most advanced robot
to date and a cultural icon. She has become a media darling,
appearing on major media outlets around the world, igniting the
interest of people regardless of age, gender, and culture, even
gracing the cover of one of the top fashion magazines. Her press
coverage has a potential reach of over ten billion readers in
- Sophia is a highly sought-after
speaker in business and showed her prowess and great potential
across many industries. She has met face-to-face with key decision
makers in banking, insurance, auto manufacturing, property development,
media, and entertainment. In addition, she has appeared onstage
as a panel member and presenter in high-level conferences, covering
how robotics and artificial intelligence will become a prevalent
part of peoples lives. Her reputation extends beyond business
