How Facebook Figures Out Everyone You've Ever Met

In real life, in the natural course of conversation, it is not uncommon to talk about a person you may know. You meet someone and say, “I’m from Sarasota,” and they say, “Oh, I have a grandparent in Sarasota,” and they tell you where they live and their name, and you may or may not recognize them.
 

They say it's good to speak something from the soul, but isn't it silly that many people have already sold their soul?

How Smartphones #Hijack Our #Minds

“Smartphones have become so entangled with our existence that, even when we’re not peering or pawing at them, they tug at our #attention, diverting precious cognitive resources. Just suppressing the desire to check our #phone, which we do routinely and subconsciously throughout the day, can debilitate our thinking. The fact that most of us now habitually keep our phones 'nearby and in sight,' the researchers noted, only magnifies the mental toll," writes the Wall Street Journal.

What is Socialism?

When it is established it must be on a global basis, as a real alternative to the present system. In a socialist society there will be common ownership of the Earth by its inhabitants and no minority will dictate to us that production must give priority to profit. There will be no owners. The people of the world will share the world. Production will be for use, not sale. The only questions we will need to ask about production are what do people need and can these needs be met. Science and technology will at last be used to their fullest potential and in the service of humanity. The basic socialist principle will be that people give according to their abilities and take according to their needs. There will be no buying or selling, as money will have been abolished and will not be necessary in a world of free access. Socialism will mean a world without borders or frontiers, social classes or leaders, slates or governments, force or coercion.

#Rohingya #Muslims fear the #UN failed them

Now, with the situation exploding, over 1000 dead, and half a million #refugees, the question must be asked: What is the cost of such silence?

And furthermore, if the UN is prepared to act as cynically as nation-states, what reason is there for it to exist at all?

Please #Prove You’re Not a #Robot

To be sure, today’s impersonation-bots are different from the robots imagined in science fiction: They aren’t sentient, don’t carry weapons and don’t have physical bodies. Instead, fake humans just have whatever is necessary to make them seem human enough to “pass”: a name, perhaps a virtual appearance, a credit-card number and, if necessary, a profession, birthday and home address. They are brought to life by programs or scripts that give one person the #power to imitate thousands.

We will react under pressure, even if, by then, it will be too late to reverse or even slow down, in any relevant way, the warming trend.

Why We Are Naively Optimistic About Climate Change

Unfortunately, we are failing in the goal to make our children's world better than our own — and those who deny it won't have to see the consequences of their choices, says blogger Marcelo Gleiser.
 

#Study Links Most #Amazon Deforestation to 128 Slaughterhouses

Satellites are mechanical reporters of the Amazon deforestation process. By documenting the degradation and gaps created by the clear-cutting process over the years, they deliver the verdict: Two-thirds of the Amazon's deforested area has been turned into pastures.
Actually, we should reforest to mitigate #climate #change. Is #humanity too stupid, greedy or ignorant - for doing the opposite?
