Still looking for a discussion of meaning given a logic in which there can be true contradictions.

Dear Gil, what do you mean by meaning? There are inferentialists in the paraconsistent camp (Stephen Read is a good example, at least on some incarnation of his views about logic and meaning). These people would say that meanings are given by the inference rules so you have an immediate connection between, e.g. paraconsistency and the meaning of negation. I'd guess that you had something else in mind with your question. Are you looking for a discussion of, e.g. truth-conditional semantics from a paraconsistent perspective? I don't know of any sustained discussion of that issue, but there is a discussion of closely related issues in the literature on 'inconsistent concepts'. I have in mind specifically Doug Patterson's work on the inconsistency of truth and Davidsonian theories of meaning (see e.g. "Inconsistency Theories of Semantic Paradox" in PPR, 2009)

Facing growing opposition in Congress, Lawrence H. Summers, the former Treasury secretary and a top contender to replace Ben S. Bernanke as Federal Reserve chairman, told President Obama that he didn't want to be considered for the job.

Bank of America has changed the method for online transfers of money from my account to a daughters. Now I cannot do an online transfer.

Amazon allows free transfers -- I think up to $1k/month.

On September 12, 2013, I had dinner with my friends and former Bell Labs colleagues Larry Jackel and Urs Muller and his collaborator Liila Torabi.

Larry insisted that we continue the long tradition of making a bet about future technology. 

In past years, Larry made various bets with me and Vladimir Vapnik (e.g. this famous one from 1995 in which Vladimir said that "by 2000 no one in their right mind would be using neural nets": https://plus.google.com/104362980539466846301/posts/CR18UPiemYB ).

So we made the following bet:
Yann bets (a fancy dinner) that by 9/12/2023, smartphones will be able to drive cars on any street safely. Larry says "no".
Signed by Larry D. Jackel and Yann LeCun. witnessed by Liila Torabi.

Who knew that Obama's "Yes we can" meant "Yes we can listen to your phone calls and read your email"?

The solution is to go to Manage Labels in GMail and hide all labels from Google Plus.

What has happened to the wonderful tenor saxophonist Ralph Moore? Apparently no recordings in 15 years.

Good question. Perhaps your former Princeton colleague Maitland Jones might know. He knows many things about jazz.
