The search for an elusive alligator in the Humboldt Park Lagoon is over.

Eight days after it was first spotted, the reptile was captured overnight less than 24 hours after the city hired an expert from Florida to find it. Frank Robb was brought in after several attempts to capture it failed.

Six migrant families filed multi-million dollar claims Monday against the Trump administration over last year’s family separations, saying they need the money to pay for counseling and other medical care to heal from the “torture” they said they suffered.

The legal claims are the latest effort by immigrant-rights groups to punish the administration for the separations of thousands of children, which resulted from the Justice Department’s zero tolerance policy for illegal border crossers.

The families and their lawyers say the policy intended to inflict “emotional distress” on the parents and children, hoping it would make attempting to sneak into the U.S. so uncomfortable that fewer people would attempt it.

“It succeeded with devastating consequences,” said Mark Fleming, associate director of litigation at the National Immigration Justice Center.

You do know that in spic countries whenever a government fucks up and get sued by people they employ spendable assassins in order to get rid of the ones that represent a problem right? if you want them to stop pestering you, you can always try to trick them into thinking that something like that can happen there too, if you make your ruse believable enough they won't even dare try something like that again. (this post is a goddamn joke you stupid fucks)



Kikes at it again, I see. They never relent.


This has to be stopped.


Stop paying taxes.

The zoo’s female endangered Malayan tapir, Yuna, gave birth to a male baby July 12.

Tapirs look something like pigs with trunks, but they are related to horses and rhinoceroses. This eclectic lineage is an ancient one—and so is the tapir itself. Scientists believe that these animals have changed little over tens of millions of years. It’s estimated that there are about 2,500 left in Thailand, Malaysia and Sumatra, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The young male is currently brown and spotted, camouflage that allows him to hide from predators. In a year or so, he will look like a smaller, typical black-and-white tapir.

Talena Welsh, the zoo’s lead keeper in the Asian Forest Sanctuary, said one of the reasons the birth is important is because there are fewer than 50 tapirs in zoos in the United States.

"""They’re an endangered species and we want to make sure to support the wild counterparts as much as possible,"""Welsh said.

When he resigned as defense secretary last December, Jim Mattis thought it might take two months to install a successor. That seemed terribly long at the time.

Seven months later, the U.S. still has no confirmed defense chief even with the nation facing potential armed conflict with Iran. That's the longest such stretch in Pentagon history.

There is also no confirmed deputy defense secretary, and other significant senior civilian and military Pentagon positions are in limbo, more than at any recent time.

The causes are varied, but this leadership vacuum has nonetheless begun to make members of Congress and others uneasy, creating a sense that something is amiss in a critical arm of the government at a time of global uncertainty.

William Cohen, a former Republican senator who served as defense secretary during President Bill Clinton's second term, says U.S. allies — "and even our foes" — expect more stability than this within the U.S. defense establishment.

While “neither rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night” is often used to describe the dependability of the U.S. Postal Service, a technical glitch apparently held up delivery to a Buffalo homeless shelter.

The Little Portion Friary on Main Street went without mail delivery for two months. That is two months they did not get their utility bills, nor checks from donors to pay those bills, nor important notices to carry on the charity’s business.

Sister Barbara Pfohl who coordinates Little Portion Friary’s activities, said the shelter closed out a post office box it had for more than 30 years, but the mail was not being delivered to the new mailbox they had just installed at the shelter.

Pfohl said using the post office box at the downtown Ellicott Station on Washington Street was inconvenient for the volunteer staff and their clients.

“It was really a hardship for them to do that. So we said, why not just have it delivered to the house? So we set that up.”

During the two month void, donations to the Little Portion Friary have been off by about 10 percent, and even the 29 guests who stay there have been affected.

Postal worker here, lol.

>“It was really a hardship for them to do that. So we said, why not just have it delivered to the house?"

Because forwarding a business to a street address is slow enough and most times these retards don't notify their donors or bill collectors of their new address meaning that their mail is perpetually being forwarded and using up manpower and resources. But hey at least now they can have their mail left out in the open where anyone can steal it instead of in a PO box.

>“An error in the coding was corrected…"

In other words these idiots filled out their forwarding card wrong and had to wait until someone up the line noticed it and got enough time to correct it. This happens literally all the god damn time because for whatever reason people just cannot fucking be bothered to write legibly. Pro tip kids, if the person reading and coding those can't decipher your chicken scratch they are going to give their best guess and move on to the next one, because there are a shitload of those things to process each day and only a handful of people who do it.

Facebook's David Marcus faced a bipartisan grilling for more than two hours in the US Senate on Tuesday as lawmakers tore into the company's plans to launch a digital currency. There was a key theme throughout the hearing: Why should anyone trust Facebook to build this?

Marcus, who heads up Facebook's cryptocurrency efforts, testified before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs about the California technology giant's blockchain efforts, called Libra. The Libra currency was first announced in June and is scheduled to launch at some point in 2020.

The House voted Tuesday to condemn comments from President Donald Trump that have been criticized as racist, with some Democrats complaining that party leaders aren’t punching back hard enough.

The 240-187 vote backed a resolution that “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.” Several Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the measure.

Alien enthusiasts were sent into a frenzy last month when a baffling UFO shaped like a snake appeared above the Mojave Desert in California.

Several weeks later, a similar object was spotted plunging from the sky before speeding off at breakneck speed over Colorado.

And now, a third “snake UFO” has been caught on camera.

The video shows a grey cylindrical shape hovering in the blue skies above Washington.

I just saw this over San Fransico Bay from my boat this morning 7/16/2019 at around 10am. it was glinting the sun off it and this it just flickered out and vanished. Second time this has happened, same spot, same time roughly. Freaky shit

The Rubik’s Cube has been frustrating would-be solvers for decades, and whenever someone is able to conquer it, it’s an achievement worthy of recognition. Now, researchers from the University of California have created an extraordinary artificial intelligence system capable of solving the Rubik’s Cube — in a fraction of a second.

The AI system is a deep reinforcement learning algorithm named DeepCubeA, and — perhaps even more astonishing — it doesn’t need to be provided with any specific information on the Rubik’s cube or in-game coaching to beat the puzzle. It learns all on its own.

For reference on just how impressive beating a Rubik’s Cube in under a second really is, consider that each cube features billions of possible moves and completion paths.

According to researchers, the AI solved the Rubik’s Cube in 100% of all test runs, and found the absolute shortest path to victory 60% of the time. DeepCubeA doesn’t just play with Rubik’s Cubes either, its creators say it can also play games such as Lights Out and Sokoban.

Saw that in a youtube video a few days ago. It's interesting and definitely impressive but at the end of the day it's just a self correcting self optimizing algorithm that uses mechanical advantage to solve perfect information games. To the layperson this might look impressive but if you know about game theory and how intelligence works it's not much better than a parlor trick.

What is much MUCH more impressive is that AI is being developed that can win imperfect-information games. Embedded related.

Now here's the thing once you watch that video. AI that plays imperfect information games still basically just tries to brute force an optimal answer by "thinking" about different possible card combinations that the opponent could have. In a sense it is basically card counting and making actions based on the percent chances that it thinks different hand present. So the thing is if you could give human professional those same number odds per hand they could probably get a closer match to the AI's skill. Again the "AI" isn't really thinking. It does not process information like a human mind. It just takes finite information and more accurately assesses odds of outcomes.

Note also that it plays a game of poker using only 2 betting rounds because each additional layer of depth to a game means additional computing power that must be dedicated to playing out hypothetical games before making a decision.

A suspected tornado struck a rural area of north Mississippi on Tuesday, damaging homes and knocking down trees and power lines as the wet remnants of Hurricane Barry rumbled through several states, officials said.

A storm that may have included a tornado passed through Victoria, Mississippi, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) southeast of Memphis, Tennessee, National Weather Service forecaster Andrew Chiuppi said.

Tesla is cutting the price of the Model 3, as it aims to make its best-selling product more affordable, and is discontinuing versions of other vehicles.

Tesla said on Monday that it’s reducing the price of the Model 3 by $1,000 to $38,990. The company will no longer sell the standard range versions of the Model S and Model X, raising the minimum costs consumers will have to pay for those cars.

The base version of the Model S is rising to $79,990 from $75,000, while the price of the Model X is increasing to $84,990 from $81,000.

“In order to make purchasing our vehicles even simpler, we are standardizing our global vehicle lineup and streamlining the number of trim packages offered for Model S, Model X and Model 3,” a Tesla spokesperson told CNBC. “We are also adjusting our pricing in order to continue to improve affordability for customers. Like other car companies, we periodically adjust pricing and available options.”

The changes come ahead of Tesla’s second-quarter earnings next week. In its last report, Tesla recorded a wider-than-expected loss and less revenue than expected as demand for its cars waned following the loss of a valuable tax credit for buyers.

Early Facebook investor and Trump supporter Peter Thiel weighed in on the Democrats taking on the president in 2020.

“I’m most scared by Elizabeth Warren,” he said on Monday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“She’s the one that’s actually talking about the economy, which is the thing that matters most,” Thiel told Carlson. He said the others were “equally unimpressive” as they all were embracing “one form of identity politics or another.”

Thiel also reiterated his call for the FBI and CIA to investigate Google to see if the Facebook rival’s A.I. research has been infiltrated by Chinese espionage.

Noting that Google has called its research “a Manhattan Project for A.I,” he added. “I would naturally think this would draw the attention of foreign intelligence agencies.”

He also said he believes some Google employees ideologically think that the U.S. is worse than China.

New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.

Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as “baseless rumors” first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House. But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.

The questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi.

Although she has legally corrected the discrepancy, she has declined to say anything about how or why it happened.

Escalating tensions on Capitol Hill erupted into a contentious floor fight in the House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke in favor of a proposed resolution condemning "racist" comments by President Trump – even as Republican leaders stood steadfast behind the president.

When Pelosi's remarks turned personal, Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins rose to challenge her and demand that her words be "taken down." The extraordinary rebuke, the first of its kind involving a member of Congress and a speaker of the House in decades, theoretically could result in Pelosi being barred from speaking on the floor for the remainder of the day.

"There is no place anywhere for the president's words, which are not only divisive, but dangerous – and have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color," Pelosi, D-Calif., said. "It's so sad because you would think that there would be a given that we would universally, in this body, just say, 'Of course. Of course.'"

The last living man to walk on the Moon has warned that many people may be allergic to dust on the lunar surface, which could hinder plans to found a colony.

Harrison ‘Jack’ Schmitt, 83, the only scientist to visit the Moon, flew with the final Apollo mission in December 1972 before the program was canceled.

No, you haven't. Terrestrial telescopes can't see any evidence of the Apollo missions. Stop lying.



Isn't lunar soil about as fine as well-milled wheat?
