Sanders may have won the primary in NH, but lets not forget that so did trump.

    Trump is the personification of a youtube comment section, who thinks latinos are nothing but rapists and drug dealers, that muslims she be registered and denied access to the country, mocks handicapped people, and thinks he could shoot people and it wouldn't harm his chances.

    This is one of the people we liked enough to vote for him to win the chance to become a world leader.

    If you ask me, it shows that USicans are seriously tired of the Establishment. Tired of corporate authoritarianism masked as liberalism and conservatism. So they're going as all out as you can in USica— sorta-socialism vs. sorta-fascism.

Now that AI has beaten Go, what do you think should be the next goalpost?

    Whereas
    It hasn't quite beaten Go yet (AlphaGo was at about dan 5 pro level in October) - although I can't see it taking longer than a few more years at the latest now. As for future goals: how about "perfect translation"? Being able to translate as good as humans, now that would be something. But too hard to be the *next* goal, perhaps...

What do you feel about cloning?

    There is a birth defect where humans are born without brains. I think if we can splice that into genes somehow and then create brainless clones, we could work with that in a couple different interesting ways.

    I say allow it, but in relatively large slow breeding things to see what happens. Like for example cloning elephants. I remember dolly the sheep had a lot of problems latet in life so I think it is right to express concerns about the long term effects of cloning and we should do long term longitudinal studies to find out what those effects are.

I don't like nationalism. It would be much better if we all worked together. All too often we are stymied by the whimsical nature of our leaders.

    Tribalism is a good basis for cooperative work between groups made up of individuals with similiar philosophies. Nationalism is just a form of tribalism.

A new method of cyropreservation was able to preserve an entire rabbit brain with nearly 100% effacy down to the synaptic level! http://www.futuretimeline.net/forum/topic/3956-biology-medicine-news-and-discussions/?p=174211

    Whether this method actually preserves proteins below the synaptic scale remains to be seen. In all, I think it's a great progress.

LOL, western propaganda machine just hit new low: http://youtu.be/rAp6myQB7yg ... and the full story: https://www.rt.com/news/331929-russian-video-french-report/ the superior "western" airstrikes, yeah... I have some mixed feelings now :)

    I don't know the story you referring to, but blame Russia for "thousands of killed civilians" AND illustrate this with counter-examples of careful and precise "western" airstrikes - this is purely Orwellian level of doublethink & i highly doubt our media even capable to this. We are still too provincial :)

A great win by Sanders in New Hampshire. :-) However, it's important to remind ourselves that there's still a 100% chance of a Clinton win nationally.

Economist predict that there will be a recession in 2016 greater than in 2008. And here I am thinking that the 2008 global recession has not ended yet.

    no you don't. getting to the top 1% is like evolution. You don't have to be the perfect design, you just have to live long enough to bare fruit. Post reproductive illnesses and diseases of old age persist because they don't interfere with your ability to procreate. wealthy elite exist after depressions and societal collapse because all they have to do is get enough to see to the rest of their lives.

    nobody said otherwise. I'm simply stating that a long term plan is not nessecary. Theres no need for the top to rake in anything for the result to happen. the result is simply the consequence of smash and grab. no strategy, no plan, no conspiracy. just get while you can and don't worry about anybody else.

I wonder if the white feminist cult behind Hillary would be equally invested in Elizabeth Warren, had she decided to run.

    I think probably it has more to do with generation and social class than race. The women who grew up in the 60s/70s were facing a different world more similar to Mad men they are afraid of things returning to that state. However a woman in her 20s is probably more afraid of not having stability to have a family/the kind of life she would like. It seems unlikely to her that 60s world will return.
