El tango "De qué podemos hablar" fue grabado en dos oportunidades por el maestro Di Sarli: en 1956, con Argentino Ledesma, y en 1957, con Jorge Durán. La "versión" que aquí se escucha parece haber sido realizada meclando esas dos grabaciones.

Una obra maestra de Charly García.  La progresión armónica, la instrumentación, la letra... extraordinario.

" Though Bostrom’s argument supports the conclusion that maximizing humanity’s long term potential is extremely important, it does not provide strong evidence that reducing existential risk is the best way of maximizing humanity’s future potential. There is a much broader class of actions which may affect humanity’s long-term potential, and Bostrom’s argument does not uniquely favor existential risk over other members in this class.

" A version of Bostrom’s argument better supports a more general view: what matters most is that we make path-dependent aspects of the far future go as well as possible. There are important questions about whether we should accept this more general view and what its practical significance is, but this more general view seems to be a strict improvement on the view that minimizing existential risk is what matters most.

" The above points favor very broad, general, and indirect approaches to shaping the far future for the better, rather than thinking about very specific risks and responses, though there are many relevant considerations and the issue is far from settled."
An existential risk is a risk “that threatens the premature extinction of Earth-originating intelligent life or the permanent and drastic destruction of its potential for desirable future development,” (Bostrom, 2013). Nick B...

"The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the largest of the animal advocacy groups to have wrangled with the meat industry, is sometimes described by them as being “too big”, likening it to a gorilla of various sizes ranging from nine hundred pounds to nine million pounds! But, a close look at the numbers shows that this is actually a tussle between a David and a Goliath, with the exception that in this case Goliath cannot stop whining about how David is 'too big'."

Esta orquesta no es la de Rodolfo Biagi.  Es el Trío Yumba, que grabó algunos éxitos de Biagi con Hugo Duval.  Por favor corrijan la información en este y los demás videos que subieron a YouTube, dado que se presta a confusión. Gracias.

"There is a bias underlying this scattershot approach to overcoming bias: we are inclined to allocate equal time or value to each category or instance of something we are presented with, even if they are arbitrary, or at least not a good signal of their importance."

+Peter Hurford:"I offer a simple calculator that makes use of the formula I had used earlier and a complex calculator that makes use of EAA's spreadsheet and includes breakdown by animal, breakdown by vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian/reducer, product elasticity, pain of slaughter, and indirect advocacy."
Complex Calculator. The complex calculator makes use of the previous equation, but adjusts for differences between veganism, vegetarianism, pescatarianism, and meat reducing; adjusts for product elast...
