Sunday, July 14, 2019

“So your article Murray is about ‘The Gold Standard’ which is fantastic but you could not help yourself from throwing a knife at Trump. I may leave this up for a few mins but eventually today, your gone from this group. You’ve been warned many times about Trump bashing on this page.

And that’s why the Tea Party, like so many “little people revolts”, has been take over by “Republican” operatives.  I remember the same thing happened to the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee tax revolt group “Hands Across New Jersey”.

Sigh!

Ford Knew How Defective Its Fiesta and Focus Transmissions Were for Years: Report

Saturday, July 13, 2019

I’d call it an open secret in the world of cars but for the fact that everyone knows about it: the dual-clutch transmission in the last-generation Ford Fiesta and Focus was an utter disaster. The gearboxes are plagued with problems like sudden acceleration, sputtering, and slipping into neutral at highway speed.

The worthlessness of Gooferment “regulators”!

And Ford Crony Capitalists equally to blame.

The sharks (i.e., the legal industry) didn’t go all “class action” on them?

How Right-Hand Drive Japanese Imports Took Over Siberia

Saturday, July 13, 2019

Since the early ’90s, millions of right-hand-drive cars from Japan have found their way into Russia, a country that drives on the right side of the road, just like the U.S. and totally opposite from Japan.That is to say, for these cars, they’re going to operate on the wrong side of the road than what they were designed for.The JDM import industry in Russia peaked in 2008, when over 500,000 second-hand vehicles from Japan were imported. Since then, economic and legal factors have dented the trade, which has declined “ten-fold” in recent years. Unsurprisingly, rumors float that the era of right-hand-drive is slowly coming to an end.

For some reason, I found this funny.  Like the lines: “… drive thru the McDonald’s drive thru in reverse …” and “… pay tolls with a bill extender …”.

Ya can’t make this stuff up.

Deepfakes Pose Increasing Legal and Ethical Issues for Hollywood | Hollywood Reporter

Saturday, July 13, 2019

“Let’s say [a filmmaker] wanted to do a biographic movie about Heath Ledger, and rather than have an actor play Heath Ledger, they used a digital version,” says Bennett. “We think that would be perfectly fine. Now contrast that example with a [re-created] Heath Ledger becoming the next Captain Jack Sparrow in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie. That wouldn’t be OK. That would threaten actors’ livelihood.”

So it’s not just exploitation. Digital technology also puts jobs at risk.

But, as Bennett acknowledges, if Heath Ledger’s heirs were bequeathed his right of publicity in a will and then licensed it to Disney so a deepfake version of Ledger could play Jack Sparrow, that would be totally fine by law.

In fact, right now, there are only a few A-list actors in Hollywood, and the biggest reason they are not in every film is limitations on their time. But if the technology developments enable them to simply license their name, image and voice and not really spend any time actually on set, wouldn’t that potentially take away jobs? All the roles just might go to Dwayne Johnson and Jennifer Lawrence.

I find this fascinating stuff.

And, it means that you can’t even believe your eyes anymore.

Wow.

Like the unreliability of “eyewitness testimony”, even digital evidence will be suspect.  What happens to DNA evidence as technology improves?

Indiana Law Benefiting Gun Owners Goes Into Effect This Month

Thursday, July 11, 2019

AP Photo/Lisa Marie Pane, File If you’re ever involved in a shooting, you can find yourself in the midst of a very traumatic experience. Taking a human life can be devastating all on its own, even in the case of self-defense, but then things can get ugly.

*** begin quote ***

The new law seeks to prevent people from profiting off their jackwagon relatives trying to hurt other people and being put down like rabid dogs. Good.

This need to spread to all 50 states.

‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’ I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: [screaming at the top of his lungs] “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!” — the character Howard Beale played by Peter Finch in the movie Network (1976)
