Elon Musk shared new details about Tesla's Optimus humanoid robot - including information about the cost and likely uses for it - in an essay published online. The robot, which is intended for industrial and domestic uses, will debut at AI Day September 30 after first being announced at AI Day in August 2021. 'Tesla Bots are initially positioned to replace people in repetitive, boring, and dangerous tasks. But the vision is for them to serve millions of households, such as cooking, mowing lawns, and caring for the elderly,' Musk wrote in the essay published in China Cyberspace magazine.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Is Real and
It Needs to be Studied
3 replies
Posted by Imright 8/18/2022 3:40:06 PM Post Reply
The concept of “Trump Derangement Syndrom” may have started as a joke to describe the over-reaction of hatred toward Trump, but after years of people upending good sense and their own principles in order to get at this man, I’m pretty convinced it’s real and that scientists need to study this in the future. I see it every single day and as we drift closer and closer to the 2024 presidential election, I have a feeling we’re going to see it even more and in big ways. Right now, the most popular example of it comes from Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, who just lost her reelection campaign by 37 points.

A federal judge on Thursday told the Justice Department to prepare a redacted version of the affidavit that undergirded the FBI's raid on Mar-a-Lago – opening the door to more public information on the probe that preceded the move. US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, who signed off on search warrant for the August 8 raid, put off a final decision on whether to put out the document, which media outlets and allies of President Donald Trump were seeking following the extraordinary raid. He told the government to come back with proposed redactions,

Two months ago Thursday, President Joe Biden fell off his bicycle, spurring plenty of rude derision online. But he is wearing sunglasses now, which somehow symbolizes the resurrection of his presidency. Not just any sunglasses but a special pair that spurred The New York Times to christen him “Aviator Joe.” Biden is supposedly the pilot America needs right now. It’s probably no coincidence Biden is showcasing his sunglasses “in the wake of another great aviator re-emergence and success story, that of Tom Cruise in ‘Top Gun: Maverick,'”

Isn’t it funny how the folks telling us not to criticize the FBI because it will cause violence have no problem using the same type of heated rhetoric against conservatives? It might be a bit funny – but it is not surprising. This is politics, after all, and progressives are feeling particularly hypocritical at the moment. Enter Edward Luce, associate editor at the Financial Times, who posted a rather braindead tweet about the GOP. He wrote: I’ve covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world over my career. Have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today’s Republicans. Nothing close.

Abe Lincoln, the country lawyer, was well known in his younger days for defending the criminally accused. He said that every defendant, no matter the circumstances, deserved a defense. Not so much with Liz Cheney. During the over-produced J6 hearings (that had everything save for an ominous soundtrack), there was one glaring and obvious omission. Only one side presented a case. I assure you, I would have won every trial I tried if I was the only person presenting evidence (those are called default hearings). During the J6 hearings, Cheney went whole hog for one side. She lied with the best of committee members,

Mike Pence is currently in New Hampshire entertaining his delusions of grandeur. The former vice president is convinced that he can run as “another way” in 2024, defeating Trump and ushering in a new era of establishment rule. While giving a speech in the Granite State, he lambasted conservatives for daring to criticize the FBI following its raid of Mar-a-Lago, proclaiming the sanctity of the bureau and its rank-and-file members. As my reaction piece noted, it was the surest sign yet that Pence is a man who simply doesn’t know what time it is. Tucker Carlson had the same assessment while speaking to Laura Ingraham on Wednesday evening.

Former President Donald Trump is considering releasing the footage he has of the FBI raiding his home, according to reports. CNN cited anonymous Trump “allies” and people “close to Trump” who encouraged the president to release the footage. Speculation about what Trump will do with the footage of the FBI continues to build. The former president confirmed on social media the FBI demanded all of the security cameras be turned off during the raid, but they did not stay off. “What is that all about?” He asked. “We said no!” The form president’s son Eric Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday that they would release the footage, “At the right time.”

It’s astonishing how, by the time we normal folk first hear of a new Globalist Socialist initiative, it turns out there’s already a significant amount of infrastructure in place. Take eating bugs, for example. Did you know that there are currently sizable cricket farms in many parts of the world, including Canada and the United States? Or that cricket flour is already used in some foods? For example, Entomo Farms in Canada currently produces a weekly harvest of 50 million crickets, which it mills into 9,000 pounds of “protein.” The owners plan to triple production within a year. Some of the “cricket flour” goes into pet foods, while some

So, you accept anything because now Republicanism, conservatism, Trumpism becomes your identity, and so, you’re going to stay.” He continued, “I’m going to say this as a Christian myself, the pastors, many pastors in this country are failing their congregations.

It’s abundantly clear that former Vice President Mike Pence is going to run for president in 2024. He’s been putting in the leg work lately, with a scheduled trip to New Hampshire coming up. He’s also positioned himself as a Trump foil in the mid-term GOP primaries, taking a contrary position to the former president in several states, most recently in Arizona. For my part, I think Pence’s pursuit is delusional. There is exactly one person in the GOP who would be palatable to Trump voters if Trump himself weren’t the nominee, and his name is Ron DeSantis.

Since the outset of the global monkeypox outbreak in May, public health and infectious disease experts have told the public that the virus is largely transmitting through skin-to-skin contact, in particular during sex between men. Now, however, an expanding cadre of experts has come to believe that sex between men itself — both anal as well as oral intercourse — is likely the main driver of global monkeypox transmission. The skin contact that comes with sex, these experts say, is probably much less of a risk factor.
