Stand with Israel  - 
 
 
Israel is home. Meet Lucy Aharish. This year, Lucy was among the 14 torch lighters in the official ceremony kicking off Israel’s celebrations of 67 years of independence. ‘This is our country, there is no other,’ teary-eyed Lucy said in Arabic.

Yes, this is our country! We stand #forIsrael. We stand for human rights. Today in Geneva over 1,000 Israel supporters will convey this message to UN. Join us! ow.ly/OUiyC #RethinkUN

+J Wing This is exactly the difference; The new and old Bible are there to guide and not to go like blind after the established authority of religion. One of the most important things in Torah learning is to ask questions and to doubt everything written by he wise for two reasons;
1. The Torah was meant for each and every one and he should receive it as if he was at Mount Sinai in person.
2. To check whether the decisions or resolutions brought thoughts so far still relevant. If so, then accept them as if they were my own decisions. If not then I'm going to look and ask for more questions.
A priest can help and guide but he can not tell me what and how to think.
And this is true for anything in the world and [not just the Torah], only such an understanding can lead to a change in the Muslim world.

"Cisco is pitching the IoT System at verticals such as manufacturing, oil and gas, utilities, transport, public safety and smart cities.

Additionally, a number of software houses are already porting their software applications to run on the Fog Computing system, including General Electric’s Predix industrial internet cloud platform, and Itron, which has brought across its Riva distributed intelligence platform.

I'd say  the answers shared here indicate this needs a bit more work.
"The AI also taught itself how to respond to inquiries about morality and philosophy. The answers were coherent enough that you might mistake them for something your stoner roommate from college once said. (Sample conversation: “What is the purpose of life?” “To serve the greater good.” “What is the purpose of living?” “To live forever.”)"

“Under some conditions, even a minority opinion can appear to be extremely popular locally,” say Lerman and co. That might explain how extreme views can sometimes spread so easily.
 
Majority Illusion and related social media Fallacies

When false dichotomies, distortions and out of context, crafted Gifs, pics and words go Viral (and potential dangers of exploitation and abuse by shrewd marketers and propagandists)

Did you see the recent falsely dichotomous gif of the soccer players where one was a man soccer match and the other was a women Rugby but where people were led to believe that they were both soccer related?  Well...it's all over the place...at any rate.

A very important article to read

The Social-Network Illusion That Tricks Your Mind

[...]

"That’s interesting work that immediately explains a number of interesting phenomena. For a start, it shows how some content can spread globally while other similar content does not—the key is to start with a small number of well-connected early adopters fooling the rest of the network into thinking it is common.

That might seem harmless when it comes to memes on Reddit or videos on YouTube. But it can have more insidious effects too. “Under some conditions, even a minority opinion can appear to be extremely popular locally,” say Lerman and co. That might explain how extreme views can sometimes spread so easily.

It might also explain the spread of antisocial behavior. Various studies have shown that teenagers consistently overestimate the amount of alcohol and drugs their friends consume. “If heavy drinkers also happen to be more popular, then people examining their friends’ drinking behavior will conclude that, on average, their friends drink more than they do,” say Lermann and co."

I saw this in my stream, shared by someone who follows the original poster. Both had zero sympathy for the tourist who should have known better than to deliberately provoke someone armed. That's the same view taken by the UK government. Now I may be a bit too subtle for some people here, but you'll either get what I'm hinting at, or you don't.  What applies in the UK, applies everywhere. Deliberately harrassing armed soldiers, a favorite tactic in a particular part of the world, can get you killed. And you'd have no one but yourself to blame.

From http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/theroyalfamily/11701783/Watch-Queens-Guard-turns-rifle-on-a-tourist-at-Windsor-Castle.html

"A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence told the Daily Record the soldier had an "appropriate reaction" to the tourist's behaviour and would not be disciplined.
The spokesperson added: "Since that incident, a rope has now been installed at that sentry position that keeps tourists away and stops people approaching the card.
They added: "It is disappointing that a member of the public has shows such disrespect towards the Queen's Guard.
"The soldier is there to protect the Queen, himself and the sentry position. He reacts appropriately."
A video showing the dramatic moment a soldier from the Queen's Guard turned his rifle on a tourist outside Windsor Castle has emerged online

I always use them. It makes better reading, IMO. My thoughts of someone who would insist they be removed is that they should make better use of their time. :-)
