Netanyahu turned down secret peace offer, former US officials say.

It is becoming quite clear that the right winged Netanyahu is quite unwilling to make peace in the region.

He is living in an alternate reality with alternate facts. He has the best intelligence agencies in the world working for him, and yet he doesn't know what happened in Sweden, which is nothing. Sad.

Software Helps Musicians Stop Slouching by Ruining Their Music

Researchers at the Royal College of Music, London in the U.K. have developed the Musician's Mirror, software that identifies when musicians' posture is poor and gives them an audible notification. Users can take advantage of the software by inputting images of themselves adopting good and bad posture, and then highlighting the parts of the body on which they want the system to focus. The musicians then practice their instrument in front of a depth camera. If the musicians start to slouch, they receive an audible warning in the form of white noise for an acoustic instrument, and out-of-tune notes for an electric instrument. If their posture becomes worse, the warning sound becomes more jarring. After the practice session is over, the system produces a "heat map" in the form of a single image representing the player's most common postures.

"The main algorithm is based on the finding that for a special type of network simulating a polarized network, the best bridges we can add to the network are between the nodes with the highest degrees on either side." High-degree users are typically well-known and have numerous followers, and the algorithm's application to discussions on U.S. election results suggests "creating a bridge between @hillaryclinton and @breitbartnews would reduce polarization the most," says Aalto's Kiran Garimella."

I can't be the only one to think this is a bit naive. It makes the assumption that these two people would want to talk to each other?
