Paradise Papers

https://mmsylvia.wordpress.com/2017/11/06/paradise-papers-a-glimpse-of-the-filth-behind-the-scenes/

The ‘ #ParadisePapers’ revelations aren’t surprising, only enraging. Over 13 million #leaked #documents detailing the #offshore #tax-avoiding activities of the #global #elite tell us what we already know: that while they cut #healthcare, #education, and #welfare for the rest of us (with the excuse that there’s no #money), the #super-rich don’t pay #tax.
 

Always think you're dumber than the others - but don't be!

Facing #poverty, academics turn to #sex #work and sleeping in cars

#source: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/sep/28/adjunct-professors-homeless-sex-work-academia-poverty
Adjuncting has grown as #funding for public universities has fallen by more than a quarter between 1990 and 2009. Private institutions also recognize the allure of part-time professors: generally they are cheaper than full-time staff, don’t receive benefits or support for their personal research, and their hours can be carefully limited so they do not teach enough to qualify for health insurance.

Facing poverty, academics turn to sex work and sleeping in cars

Adjunct professors in America face low pay and long hours without the security of full-time faculty. Some, on the brink of homelessness, take desperate measures
 

#Twitter takes down 300,000 #terror accounts as #AI tools improve

The company further emphasizes it killed a majority of the pro-terrorism accounts set up on its platform before they could post anything: “Notably, 75% of these accounts were suspended before posting their first Tweet,” it writes.
How can they kill an account before the first tweet?

First I thought they identify the terrorists, on whom they follow. But if they know, that this account is following terrorist, why didn't they kill these accounts first? I think it is impossible to kill an account before the first post. This is pure c... mehr anzeigen

#AltRight is asking: "Why is #Obama pardoning Chelsea #Manning ok but #Trump pardoning Joe #Arpaio not ok?"

It is very tiring to explain everything for their #intelligence quotient. :(

* Obama didn't #pardon Chelsea ... he commuted after Manning served 7 years in #prison.
* One racially profiled, the other exposed war crimes. So they're comparing someone who exposed the horrific acts of the U.S.-American #... mehr anzeigen

Divide et impera

Yes I know a controversial image. I think the white man is fighting for the right thing and the black man should know more about history.

How can this country be reunited?

Arguments are fake news, discussions end in #violence, all are victims in their own created reality, ... :(

“I’m not blaming anyone for my current #situation in which I am utterly broke and still crossing my fingers that in the near #future my #career will finally take off,” she told Mongabay. “Indeed I was wrong in thinking that all my hard, unpaid #work would lead to something or that having a #degree from a … highly-respected #university would give me a leg-up.”

The Inevitable #Evolution of Bad #Science

source: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2016/09/the-inevitable-evolution-of-bad-science/500609/
Over time, and across many simulations, the virtual labs inexorably slid towards less effort, poorer methods, and almost entirely unreliable results. And here’s the important thing: Unlike the hypothetical researcher I conjured up earlier, none of these simulated scientists are actively trying to cheat. They used no strategy, and they behaved with integrity. And yet, the community naturally slid towards poorer methods. What the model shows is that a world that rewards scientists for publications above all else - a world not unlike this one - naturally selects for weak science.

A simulation shows how the incentives of modern academia naturally select for weaker and less reliable results.

Understanding globalisation

Part 6 of the 87th Annual Report, June 2017. Globalisation has had a profoundly positive impact on people's lives over the past half-century. Nevertheless, despite its substantial benefits, it has been blamed for many shortcomings in the modern economy and society. Indeed, globalisation has faced more severe criticism than technological innovation and other secular trends that have potentially had even more ...

Toward Accountability - #Data, #Fairness, #Algorithms, #Consequences

For the exact same reasons, school choice prompts people to self-segregate. Black families choose schools that are predominantly black; white families choose schools that are predominantly white. They did this long before open data, but with the rise of open data, self-segregation has escalated. NYC schools are now the MOST segregated schools in the country. Open data enabled people to segregate even though we know that this has serious long-term social and individual repercussions. Even privileged children are better off in diverse environments and, yet, most privileged parents will opt otherwise if given the choice.

Lessons From the #Fake #News Pandemic of 1942

Throughout the region, only 10 percent of children who entered first grade would go on to graduate from high school. In short, an undereducated populace was an easy mark for disinformation campaigns.

Ah ! Ça y est ma fille de 3 ans (4 dans 3 mois) sait allumer son ordi, entrer son login et son mot de passe toute seule sur sa petite debian jessie avec lightdm et LXDE. Ensuite elle lance Gcompris et on l'entend plus pendant 20 minutes. C'est beau l'autonomie.

Pendant ce temps à l'école ils en sont encore très loin mais très très loin, genre ça colle des gommettes…
