Ford said the investments are expected to add or retain 130 jobs at the Romeo Engine plant; the Michigan Economic Development Corp. said in a memo that 100 new jobs would be created there. Ford did not offer employment estimates for Michigan Assembly, but the MEDC said 3,600 jobs would be secured at the plant. Ford said in January that the $700 million investment at Flat Rock would create 700 new jobs to support production of electrified and autonomous vehicles; the number of jobs to be created by the new data center was not released Tuesday.

This shit is exactly why Trump's plans won't go anywhere and the Rust Belt is dead no matter what happens.

All those investments go into automated systems. Millions of dollars and the amount of jobs created are below 1000 jobs.

1000 jobs is a lot here in the tiny European countries. It's pissshit in the USA.

A non-binding motion condemning Islamophobia and religious discrimination.

Khalid's motion calls on the government to do three things:
Condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination.
Quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear.
Compel the Commons heritage committee to develop a government-wide approach for reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination, including Islamophobia.

Liberals rejected an attempt by Saskatchewan Conservative MP David Anderson to remove the word "Islamophobia​" from the motion and change the wording to "condemn all forms of systemic racism, religious intolerance and discrimination of Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Hindus and other religious communities.
Anderson argued Islamophobia was not defined in Khalid's motion, and that its inclusion contributed to widespread confusion and fears about the effect on freedom of speech.

A survey published Thursday by the Angus Reid Institute suggests that 42 per cent of Canadians would vote against the motion, while just 29 per cent would vote in favour of it. About two-thirds of Conservative voters were against M-103

Sadly, they've been around the block long enough that their threads are the ones taht are always getting discussion. They're still easy to spot though, so this place isn't completely ruined by disingenuous "missionaries, with their prosletyzing" or "trolls" or whatever you want to call them. They're not from here, and they only have one reason they are here, and it's not to smoke weed and chill out.

>It's a non-binding resolution that affects literally nothing, political dick waving.

It's the beginning of forming a committee to investigate. The committee is to provide recommendation to an advisory which could propose on an amendment to the laws, which then the House could pass a bill and after even more procedures and stuff, it would not be the law until the Queen gives royal assent. This whole long procedure from petition to private member motion to bill to royal assent is how parliamentary monarchy like Canada, Britain, Australia does things. It might fail to get anywhere due to the vague wording and poorly defined words, but those vague wording and poorly defined words in the motion are what is causing controversy.

The high focus of this across Canadian Internet forums has to do with a previous law repeal. That repeal was the fallout of previous cases. Every Canadian /n/ewsbuff here should remember one of those cases on /n/ from many years ago such as that Canadian publisher republishing a Danish cartoon. Not everyone has years and hundreds of thousands of dollars (Canadian dollars) to deal with HRC (Human Rights Commission) until the case is thrown out. The process of dealing with HRC is like a form of punishment and a mockery of justice. Eventually, a fews years later, the law was amended to repeal section on hate messages due to how easy to abuse it.

In this context, the fear of repeating past mistakes with bad laws is very high in the minds of many. The concern is even more prominent among ex-Muslim, Muslim reformers, feminists, gay rights activists, etc. which were repeatedly accused of "Islamophobia".

All this because they were too lazy to build the water wall a few meters higher...

https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/245324-cant-see-inside-fukushima-daiichi-robots-keep-dying
Tepco, the utility company tasked with overseeing cleanup and waste processing for the former Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, hit another snag this week.

Last month, we reported on new findings about Reactor #2 that showed it was far more radioactive inside than previously measured. At the time, we noted that Tepco was working on a new robot that could handle up to 73 sieverts of radiation, but the measured level of 530 sieverts vastly exceeded that tolerance.

Initial attempts to see into Reactor #2 via robotic probe have all failed. We’ve only been able to estimate contamination levels by checking the amount of interference in the video feed the robot relays. The new hardened robot built by Toshiba and meant to give Tepco a much-improved ability to survey the damage reactor died 5x faster than expected and stalled 10 feet from the grate it needed to inspect.


Tepco continues to insist it can meet a 2021 goal of beginning actual site clean-up. This will require enormous investments in the field of robotics and may require the company to create entirely new designs to ensure their hardware doesn’t die in a matter of minutes. If the company’s survey robots keep dying, how are they going to field robots that can cut and gather the nuclear fuel that melted into concrete?

The first responders mostly bit the bullet, but there were some in the military, termed "liquidators" operating under orders that suffered heavy exposure after the situation transistion from fire response to conrainment.

It's funny, because the kncident only directly killed about 30 to 60 people, but ruined tens of thousands, beyond maybe 50,000 and affected hundreds of thousands, which is a staggering number.

Yeah, outright death from recent radiation exposure is oddly rare in these incidents. It is the lingering shit that is the problem. The rare cancers that show up 10-20 years later or even in the next generation. Even then, some will live long lives even through long-term exposure.

Middle-age white Americans with limited education are increasingly dying younger, on average, than other middle-age U.S. adults, a trend driven by their dwindling economic opportunities, research by two Princeton University economists has found.

Since 1999, white men and women ages 45 through 54 have endured a sharp increase in "deaths of despair," Case and Deaton found in their earlier work. These include suicides, drug overdoses, and alcohol-related deaths such as liver failure.

"It's not just their careers that have gone down the tubes, but their marriage prospects, their ability to raise children," said Deaton, who won the Nobel prize in economics in 2015 for his long-standing work on solutions to poverty. "That's the kind of thing that can lead people to despair."

>The data is clear, though: In 1999, the death rate for high school-educated whites ages 50 through 54 was 30 percent lower than the death rate for all African-Americans in that age group. By 2015, it was 30 percent higher.

>Today, Tuesday 7 March 2017, WikiLeaks begins its new series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Code-named "Vault 7" by WikiLeaks, it is the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency.

>The first full part of the series, "Year Zero", comprises 8,761 documents and files from an isolated, high-security network situated inside the CIA's Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virgina. It follows an introductory disclosure last month of CIA targeting French political parties and candidates in the lead up to the 2012 presidential election.

>Recently, the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized "zero day" exploits, malware remote control systems and associated documentation. This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA. The archive appears to have been circulated among former U.S. government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner, one of whom has provided WikiLeaks with portions of the archive.

>"Year Zero" introduces the scope and direction of the CIA's global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of "zero day" weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.

>Since 2001 the CIA has gained political and budgetary preeminence over the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). The CIA found itself building not just its now infamous drone fleet, but a very different type of covert, globe-spanning force — its own substantial fleet of hackers. The agency's hacking division freed it from having to disclose its often controversial operations to the NSA (its primary bureaucratic rival) in order to draw on the NSA's hacking capacities.

>By the end of 2016, the CIA's hacking division, which formally falls under the agency's Center for Cyber Intelligence (CCI), had over 5000 registered …

Because it is demonstrably true.

>I'm not made safer when they overthrow governments. I am put in more danger by people who now have legitimate reasons to resent the country whose government I live under and now have more reason to try to blow up the subway when I'm in it.

And that's a shame, but the CIA doesn't do that unilaterally, they do it on instructions from presidents. Again, this goes back to the CIA being a tool.

>Uh, no, I'm caught up in thinking about this like any thinking person should be thinking about it, and that's in terms of what's good for humanity and doesn't lead to the murder of innocent civilians and the propping up of totalitarian regimes for the sake of the twisted chess games of some dork in a suit in the Pentagon who decided that some more poor foreign people had to die for the profits of the United Fruit company or Halliburton or Exxon Mobile, among other spurious reasons.

The way to stop that isn't to destroy the CIA or to blame them, it's to hold presidential administrations accountable for the orders they issue to the CIA and other agencies. We shouldn't be blaming the tool for how it's used, we should be blaming the people using it.

Also, refusing to recognize foreign intelligence services threats to your country doesn't help poor foreign people abroad from dying, it just makes you less safe.

I've said this a few times but we really should have been forced to take a "principles of journalism" class or something like that.
The overwhelming majority of people either a: just accept any source that looks legit as fact without checking their sources, or b: accept 'alternative' news sources as legit simply because they're not mainstream.

Australia is already a retarded fundamentalist Christian shit country, so some more thoughtcrime laws won't hurt it that much.

Can't even play some decent violent videogames, or watch some good old videonasties. Fuck those Christian cunts.

Harassment is pretty fucked up but making "offending" people illegal is impossible. It's thoughtcrime where you get punished for what someone else thinks.

I'm someone who believes absolute freedom cannot exist. Freedom is a balance between everyone's interests and everyone has to give up a little freedom to not completely trample the freedoms of others. There's is definitely a maximum freedom and while that's probably impossible to even know let alone create, you can aim for it. This is going in the wrong direction.

Insulting someone is going out to offend them. Offense however is created at the other end. It is always someone's fault if they go out and insult someone deliberately, if someone is offended often it's not their fault but sometimes it is. And it's not just liberals, it's anyone who is obsessed with an agenda and looking for things to get upset at.

To me harassment and humiliate is less of a deal. Harassment is not cool and proper harassment is usually illegal anyway. The issue is that people can get shitty with the definition but that's to do with the culture and not the words in the law.

that's why this law is good right? Because it removes the word offend from the act and replaces it with harass, which is more tangible and less about how the person on the receiving end 'feels' so people can't get in trouble for some law with a murky definition. I've got to admit here though I'm white af.

I don't know, OP fucked up his copy pasta. Or the article is awfully edited.

I assumed insult was becoming offend and humiliate was becoming harass. Though only after re reading it because at first I read it the same way but then thought maybe he's missing a comma or something.

Now I don't know any more. I am so fucking confused.

No I'm pretty sure insult humiliate and offend are being taken out and harass is being put in their place.

To that end I don't know why anybody would be upset because that's a step in the right direction

By the year 2020, you won't need a keyboard and mouse to control your computer, say Intel researchers. Instead, users will open documents and surf the web using nothing more than their brain waves.

Scientists at Intel's research lab in Pittsburgh are working to find ways to read and harness human brain waves so they can be used to operate computers, television sets and cell phones. The brain waves would be harnessed with Intel-developed sensors implanted in people's brains.

The scientists say the plan is not a scene from a sci-fi movie, Big Brother won't be planting chips in your brain against your will. Researchers expect that consumers will want the freedom they will gain by using the implant.

"I think human beings are remarkable adaptive," said Andrew Chien, vice president of research and director of future technologies research at Intel Labs. "If you told people 20 years ago that they would be carrying computers all the time, they would have said, 'I don't want that. I don't need that.' Now you can't get them to stop. There are a lot of things that have to be done first but I think [implanting chips into human brains] is well within the scope of possibility."

Intel research scientist Dean Pomerleau said that users will soon tire of depending on a computer interface, and having to fish a device out of their pocket or bag to access it. He also predicted that users will tire of having to manipulate an interface with their fingers.

Instead, they'll simply manipulate their various devices with their brains.

>You cannot crack quantum encryption
I meant all current encryption we have. It's not like everyone is going to immediately going to click over everything at the same time. One would be able to crack anything gathered prior to the switch to quantum encryption. E.g. don't you think that the CIA's emails from the day before are just as secret?

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-04/trump-accuses-obama-of-office-wiretap-during-election-campaign/8325386

According to President Donald Trump, President Obama spied on his office during the election campaign. Donald trump asks what the ethics are and should presidents be able to spy on presidential candidates during an election?

However:
>There was no information provided to substantiate Mr Trump's claims, and it was not clear on what he was basing them — although yesterday far right-wing news outlet Breitbart published an article claiming Mr Obama eavesdropped on the Trump campaign.

So there is that too.

That's right, I have no illusions of privacy in place like the Internet, any more than when I step out my front door. Tea party has nothing to do with it. You need to understand that the regulated state of the Internet isn't private either. Would you expect your conversations, identity, and whereabouts to be private if you were in the middle of a crowded city square, or football stadium? Why in the world would anyone think that the Internet (a public space that stretches across every corner of the globe) is any different?

It can be if said regulations enforce net neutrality.
Emails and other non-public messages should have an expectation of privacy as mail, phone calls, or any other form of private communication.

A regulated internet would stop the government from spying on you by stopping ISPs from spying on you.

Net neutrality has nothing to do with your identity and privacy on the internet.

And your phone calls are no more private than email. Your only hope for privacy on any network that connects to anything outside of your private property is an unhackable form of end-to-end encryption that you can place all of your trust in. Good luck finding that.

it wasn't co-opted, it was created by those people. Mercer being one of the main ones, who is also basically the brain/brawn/connections behind Breitbart, Bannon, and Trump's win. Mercer and his money/connects/analytical agencies were behind Cruz until he was taken out, then they put their money behind Trump.

Btw, I'm not liberal, I'm kinda conservative, but I don't really like either party. I'm very discerning about any news that I'll read that has any kind of slant, I'm turned off right away when I notice it. But this source is actually really good, doesn't have any corporate sponsors, etc.

This is a piece they did on how Trump won, and the people behind his campaign that gave him the victory. Same people behind the failed tea party movement.

So, you can cut someones head off with a knife and eat it and only get 9 years of prison time in Canada?

I remember reading about this story and thinking it was the most fucked up thing ever.

Even if he's mentally ill, 9 years is enough for rehabilitation and complete freedom with zero supervision?
