As it turned out, it literally was a game of chicken. In a nearly hourlong guild podcast taped before the talks got back under way(listen to it

.and I think it comes back to the truthfulness of imagery and where the images are sourced from and that they are reliable photojournalists. Reliable photojournalists like Mahmoud Raslan photographed here with Nour Al Din Zinki and wearing the Zinki headband, thus affiliating himself with this group of child torturing, US funded, extremist mercenaries, who participated in the Nusra Front/Al Qaeda-led brutal occupation of East Aleppo for almost five years. Lynch further compounds Getty's faith in Raslan as a reliable source of war imagery from Nusra Front-dominated East Aleppo by stating that these are photo-journalists at the peak of their game, citizen journalism has a place..what we see here is journalism at its very peak. According to Lynch there are millions of photographers out there...these guys we trust .

Sure, the table seems solid enough when we knock on it, and if you were still trapped in your umwelt, you wouldnt think otherwise, but now you know it is actually mostly empty space thanks to your understanding of protons and electrons. We assume that more layers of truth reveal themselves to us with each successive paradigm shift. In this episode of the You Are Not So Smart podcast, we sit down with a scientist who is challenging these assumptions. Donald Hoffman, a cognitive psychologist at the University of California with a background in artificial intelligence, game theory, and evolutionary biology has developed a new theory of consciousness that, should it prove true, would rearrange our understanding of not only the mind and the brain, but physics itself. “I agree up to a point,” said Hoffman, “that different organisms are in effectively different perceptual worlds, but where I disagree is that these worlds are seeing different parts of the truth.

The Trump team never acknowledged, even when pressed by moderators, that Russia was involved, despite intelligence agencies making it very clear there had been Russian involvement. Trump's team touted its digital efforts and the Republican National Committee's underrated ground game. They also credited Trump's intensive travel schedule, visiting states he was thought to have no chance in, but which he ultimately won. But more than anything, they said it was Trump's instincts and ability to talk directly to the American people — in a way that was relatable, even while embracing his own wealth — that carried him to victory. Even if those instincts sometimes contradicted what their political experience told them should be the right move. Emotions are still quite raw, especially from the Clinton side. And for Trump's team members there was a certain chip on their shoulder that came from a sense of never being taken seriously and yet coming out ahead.

The technological singularity trend is one that will continue so long as there is a global economy to support it. If everything remains stable, then we’re headed for a world of drones, nanotechnology, brain-machine interfaces, virtual reality escapists, robot armies used in the name of tyranny, and an eventual AIgod” that rules over life on Earth that’s been plugged into its networks. That’s stuff Ray Kurzweil has been predicting for a while, and with him being the head of Google’s engineering team he’s helping to make it happen. This technological singularity is just a physical replication of what’s already happened at the metaphysical level with our “falling” here into physicality under the dictatorship of the corrupted Demiurge. Same game, different name. On the other hand, if the global economy crumbles and the world is consumed by starvation, by revolution and mass migration or war, as it has throughout history, well you can’t build AI robots if you dont have the parts, and the parts are such high level technology that they can only be produced by an intricate global economy.

And what we found out, in cases where the polls were very close, turnout logically was much more substantial than in cases where there was a big gap between the winning party and the losing party. However the most interesting finding that we made was, in those cases where the polls were close, it was more those supporters of the majority party that turned out. Okay? And we try to interpret this result. The best explanation that we found is that showing up, turning out for the election, is to some extent similar to showing up for a football match, or a baseball match. First of all, you will be more incentivized to attend if you expect the game to be interesting. And the game will be interesting if the two parties, the two teams, are very close in power, which is exactly what we’ve seen in action. Secondly, you are likely to enjoy the game when you expect your team to win, rather than when you expect it to lose.

Lee Harvey Oswald clearly did not shoot anybody but he was blamed for it and he was killed for it two days after President Kennedy. Why that happened, how it happened, is all part of the whole story and it's been 53 years now since the assassination. Though there are many of us who want to find the truth, who like to know the truth while we’re still alive, that’s what I’ve been trying to do now for all of these years. Jeff : Is it your belief after doing this for so many years that we will ever really know the truth? Robert : I used to think we could; now I’m not so sure. The cover-up has been going on for so many years. So many legends and so much false information have been presented on both sides. It may be impossible at this stage of the game to find out who really did do it. So I’ve been focusing more lately the last couple years on who did not do it, and that’s Lee Harvey Oswald.

She has Parkinson’s’ and there is quite much brain damage from that plane crash. It’s a complex, I would say many symptoms are complex manifestations of her health problems that resulted in her life-style and her focus on negativity and all the help of the Cabal to maintain her health was blown up.?? (thank you) RichardCobra, you have said Trump is a Jesuit agent. (Yes) If Trump is a Jesuit agent, what part of the Cabal does he work for and why does the Cabal seem to be against him? COBRAHe works for the Jesuits. Actually the Jesuits are creating . . . the game as usual that they are presenting him, for him to appear that he is against the establishment, against the Cabal when in reality he is just part of the other faction of the Cabal that is working not so publicly and is working behind the scenes. (got it). RichardIf Trump is a Jesuit agent and Hillary represents the Bush-Rockefeller-Clinton faction, then, are we actually watching a battle between two factions? COBRAThere is a certain amount of conflict between both factions but for, from Jesuit perspective, it doesnt matter who wins.

" These figures, he says, indicate a change in viewing patterns — " even as we're coming together [to watch the debate] we're doing it in a much more fragmented way — so many more television outlets, so many more online outlets, different ways to consume." Media Presidential Debate Viewership Signals Changing Media Consumption Habits David points out one caveat to the record-breaking figure from Nielsen: The U.S population has grown considerably since 1980. That year, "the population of the United States was a little over 220 million. Now it's almost exactly 100 million more people. So seemingly at least, the TV numbers — not so astonishing that there might be growth in them," he explains. And speaking of records, EPSN tells David that Monday Night Football ratings hit a historic low. The game between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints was directly competing with the Trump-Clinton showdown.

Demonstrators take a knee during the national anthem outside Bank of America Stadium before an NFL football game between the Charlotte Panthers and the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in Charlotte, N.C. Protests have disrupted the city since Tuesday night, following the shooting of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott at an apartment complex in the city. Sean Rayford/Getty Images The city of Charlotte has lifted a midnight curfew, as protests over the weekend continued to be mostly peaceful. Demonstrators have taken to the streets for nearly a week, after police shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott on Tuesday. Police say Scott had a gun; his family says he was unarmed. The first two nights of unrest resulted in property damage, injuries and a temporary interstate shutdown. One protester was shot Wednesday night and later died; a civilian has been arrested in connection to that shooting.

So whether he brings his mild or wild game, she can't pick at everything he says but instead be prepared for that moment or two -- like Reagan's 'there you go again'-- that can turn the debate around." Frum concurs but stresses that her essential goal is "to remind voters that he's simply too dangerous to be trusted with our national defense. She has to make it about our financial and military security." Host: Yes, Lauer choked when it came to easy follow-up questions (except for his obsession with emails). But what if anything can HRC do in the face of a onslaught of lies? Ideally, she needs to preempt, rebut, elevate but do not keep wrestling with this big tar baby of an opponent. So prepare a few preemptive phrases to explain why, respecting the audience and stakes, she won't try fix every falsehood and then 'pivot' to either a) something more awful he did or b) her better idea.

The watch also gets in on the Pokemon Go craze of the summer with a game adaptation specifically for the device. But perhaps a bigger gaming piece of news came from Nintendo, which announced that Super Mario is finally coming to the app store.

Shares of Nintendo, which as The Verge points out "has been slow to bring its iconic characters and games to smartphones," jumped on the news. Apple's shares didn't see major gains.
