#Wikidata - Kian and #quality
Last time Kian was very much a promise. This time, after the announcement by Amir , Kian is so much more. Kian is a tool that can be trained to identify items for what they are. Training means, that parameters are provided whereby the software can act on it...

Government does not care that our world will no longer be fit to live in... They hope to be dead when the ravages of climate change defines our world

Actually, some of the sustainable energy companies in the US are calling for an end to subsidies because they are now competitive without them and the uncertainty about whether they will be renewed has been delaying orders.

It was done in Europe, it can be done in India.. It does cost money and it is by vaccinating animals not by shooting them. Shooting has the opposite effect we know.

it is like the law, it needs to be public to enable respect. Then again, with some of the presidential candidates you only ask how it is possible at all. Is this serious?

#Wikidata - Joseph Reagle not an #author?

It is business as usual. The question though, why do they wonder that the respect for police is business as usual as well ?
