Meanwhile, at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA, Mo’ne Davis — one of only two girls in the tournament — struck out eight batters in a two-hit shutout, leading Philadelphia over Nashville, 4-0.  Mo’ne, who has thrown as fast as 70mph, threw all of 70 pitches in her complete game.  Which should mean anyone who still says “You throw like a girl!” can shut the fuck up now.  (Photo: Gene Puskar / AP via the New York Daily News)

    I knew that you weren’t gonna kill her. I knew that you were weak, that you fancied yourself in love.

    The Shadows of Lauren Bacall

    newyorker:

    Richard Brody remembers the legendary actress:

    “She was meant to play Presidents and C.E.O.s, editors-in-chief and visionary directors. How many such roles existed for actresses—for women in real life—in her heyday? Bacall was bigger than her career. She started young and stayed ahead of her time, and her greatness—her mighty personal presence and her diverse body of work—carries a shadow of unfulfillment, and even tragedy.”

We Need to Stop Killer Robots from Taking Over the World
Nick Bostrom’s job is to dream up increasingly lurid scenarios that could wipe out the human race: Asteroid strikes; high-energy physics experiments that go wrong; global plagues of genetically-modified superbugs; the emergence of all-powerful computers with scant regard for human life—that sort of thing.
In the hierarchy of risk categories, Bostrom’s specialty stands above mere catastrophic risks like climate change, financial market collapse and conventional warfare.
As the Director of the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford, Bostrom is part of a small but growing network of snappily-named academic institutions tackling these “existential risks”: the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at the University of Cambridge; the Future of Life Institute at MIT and the Machine Intelligence Research Institute at Berkeley. Their tools are philosophy, physics and lots and lots of hard math.
Five years ago he started writing a book aimed at the layman on a selection of existential risks but quickly realized that the chapter dealing with the dangers of artificial intelligence development growth was getting fatter and fatter and deserved a book of its own. The result is Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies. It makes compelling—if scary—reading.
The basic thesis is that developments in artificial intelligence will gather apace so that within this century it’s conceivable that we will be able to artificially replicate human level machine intelligence (HLMI).
Once HLMI is reached, things move pretty quickly: Intelligent machines will be able to design even more intelligent machines, leading to what mathematician I.J. Good called back in 1965 an “intelligence explosion” that will leave human capabilities far behind. We get to relax, safe in the knowledge that the really hard work is being done by super-computers we have brought into being.

4 Deceptively Difficult Jobs Everyone Thinks They Can Do

#5. Photographer
Countless brides have trusted their “friend from work who has a really good camera” with the important job of documenting their special day. It’s very likely those people aren’t friends anymore. For one thing, “a really good camera” probably doesn’t mean the kind of rig that professional photographers haul to work. As you’ll see in this list of the best cameras for wedding photography, the low-end prices are somewhere in the $2,000 neighborhood, with some models closer to the $6,000 - $7,000 range.

    "A lot of the time with female protagonists, they are there to be fallen in love with or to fall in love with someone. I really wanted to steer away from that and just have [my female protagonist] as a solid person rather than a victim—someone who’s been victimized and is all broken from that, or the other cliché, which is someone who’s been made stronger. You know, you get it in all the pop songs. “Thanks so much for smashing my face in, I’m much stronger now,” that sort of thing."

Some graffiti found in Pompeii’s ruins: 
Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!
Restituta, take off your tunic, please, and show us your hairy privates.
I screwed the barmaid.
Apollinaris, the doctor of the emperor Titus, defecated well here.
I screwed a lot of girls here.
Sollemnes, you screw well!
Theophilus, don’t perform oral sex on girls against the city wall like a dog.
Nice to see nothing has changed.


There is a website with all of the graffiti

I love this.




I am laughing so hard


someone basically wrote “secundus is gay” on the wall humankind has not changed at all

    Movie of the Week

    newyorker:

    Richard Brody on Whit Stillman’s 1994 comic drama “Barcelona”: http://nyr.kr/1tXSOVN

    “The story of two young American men in Spain—a naval officer and a businessman—and the young Spanish women they meet depends inextricably on the politics that they encounter with their new friends, and friends of friends, and friendly enemies, and just plain enemies.”

    Trapped between two horrible options, Franky bowed out and left the fight to the psychos. Bea vs Ferguson in Season 3 should be epic.
