Trump continues being a deceitful liar. After the candidate he endorsed (Luther Strange) failed to win an election, he deleted all his tweets supporting that candidate, and is now supporting the winner Roy Moore, despite that Moore being a religious bigot.

From the article linked below:

During a news conference at the White House on Monday, President Trump was asked how he can justify his endorsement of U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore (R-AL) — an extremist who has said 9/11 was punishment for America turning away from God, argued that homosexuality should be illegal, and pushed the racist conspiracy theory that President Obama is a Muslim.

Despite Moore’s hateful positions, Trump quickly endorsed him after he prevailed in a primary election last month.

On Monday, a reporter asked Trump how he can justify his support for Moore, given his extremist positions on Islam and homosexuality.

'“Roy Moore down in Alabama has said that homosexuality should be illegal and that Muslims should be barred from serving in the U.S. Congress,” the reporter began. “What makes you comfortable with those beliefs serving in the U.S. Senate?”

Trump completely ignored the question, and instead merely pointed out he’ll be meeting with Moore soon.

“Well I’m going to be meeting with Roy sometime next week, and we’re going to talk to him about a lot of different things,” Trump said. “He ran a very strong race, the people of Alabama who I like very much and they like me very much, but they like Roy, and we’ll be talking to him and I can report to you then.”

Trump actually endorsed Moore’s primary opponent, Luther Strange, in the primary. But after Moore prevailed, Trump quickly deleted tweets in which he endorsed Strange, including one in which he falsely claimed his endorsement was causing Strange to surge in the polls. Trump’s decision to delete the tweets was unusual — he never deleted his tweets falsely claiming President Obama’s birth certificate was a fraud.

Trump promised during his campaign that he would be a better “friend of women and the LGBT community” than Hillary Clinton. His refusal to disavow Moore is just the latest evidence of how empty his words were.

Trump is only concerned with the attention of the people who like him. His only measure of himself is how many people he can deceive into supporting him. The rest of the population who see his lies for what they are, don't generally impinge on his consciousness, and when one does, his instinctive reaction is to attack.

A few weeks ago, I posted an article about the Parable of the Paperclip Maximizer — just what happens when an AI has clear goals and no sense of balance about achieving them. But this parable has just been utterly perfected by Frank Lantz of the NYU Game Center, who has built a game all about it. It's a browser game, it's free to play, it can be played end-to-end in about a day, and it is unreasonably satisfying and fun. And addictive.

It is, in fact, a Cow Clicker about Paperclip Maximizing.

At first, I was making paperclips – first bending them by hand, then buying machines, managing market prices, buying wire when the market is favorable. An hour and a half in, I was mostly focused on getting better at game theory tournaments so that I could improve the AI I was using to cure cancer, solve climate change, and bring about world peace on the one hand (and so build public trust in my paperclip company) and manipulate financial markets on the other hand (so that I would have enough money to bribe officials into trusting me with the HypnoDrones).

Suffice it to say that the game gets even more interesting from there.

Something I really love about it is how many different games it really is: every time you get good at something, not only do new mechanics show up, but radically new mechanics show up, so that it feels like you just played a dozen games in rapid succession. And the ending (at least, the ending I got to) is smooth, perfect, and deeply satisfying.

This is a true gem among seemingly simple games.

One warning: It does not work well on mobile; you'll want a computer for this.

Fidget spinner spinning in space! | NASA
A fidget spinner in space! How long does it spin? I'm not sure, but it’s a great way to experiment with Newton’s laws of motion!

Allowing the fidget spinner to float reduces the bearing friction by permitting the rate of the central ring and outer spinner to equalize, and the whole thing spins as a unit.

Google to Apple: Our AI is better than your AI. In its first year, Google Assistant has advanced further than Siri has in the past seven. - +Macworld

There is one important area where Google is firmly in the lead, and it has nothing to do with bezels or beats. It’s about intelligence. Google is using its AI smarts to make its products more responsive and adaptable to each user’s lifestyle.

Google Assistant isn’t just better than Siri at recognizing what you’re saying, it’s also more contextual and conversational, which leads to an all-around better experience. It even recognizes your voice over the other people in your home. With Siri, commands are islands unto themselves, while Google Assistant is practically like talking to an actual person.

It was just a year ago when Assistant was limited to Pixel phones and Google Home, and now it’s everywhere: headphones, watches, speakers, not to mention hundreds of millions of Android phones. Google is in a unique position to excel in the AI space. Where Apple needs to keep wowing us with drool-worthy hardware to get noticed, Google has taken a utilitarian approach to its design, banking on AI to drive the experience.

Google’s latest products are designed from the inside out to be smarter than they are pretty, a big bet that consumers are tired of good-looking gadgets that put form before function. And if it’s right, Apple could be playing catch-up for years to come.

As Xi Jinping’s first five-year term as China’s leader ends, he gave himself a shining report card on Wednesday — and a big to-do list for his next five years. Speaking at the start of a Communist Party congress in Beijing, Mr. Xi gave a work report that summed up his achievements so far, while also laying out where he wants to take China in his second term, which starts after this congress. Sitting on a podium before 2,300 delegates, he spoke for 205 minutes, long enough that his predecessor, Hu Jintao, pointed at his watch when Mr. Xi finally finished.

Mr. Xi did not mention Donald Trump or North Korea or other specific policy headaches. Party congresses are held every five years, and always start with China’s leader giving a work report that is a broad outline of policy, not a detailed blueprint. Even so, Mr. Xi’s priorities shone through. This is a leader who believes China is on the cusp of greatness, but who worries about domestic security threats and maintaining ideological control. Here are some key takeaways from Mr. Xi’s report:

I Want The HP ZBook X2 Like Crazy
This may be my dream tablet

I have long wanted a tablet for design and art work. The little 13" tablets are just a bit too small, and finding a tablet or convertable that has good hardware, good GPU, and a good screen, seemed like an impossible task. When you throw in the requirement for a digitizer that is on par with Wacom, the selection is reduced to zero.

But here... here be something interesting. It's as though everything I could have ever wanted has come in a rocket can ( Pop culture reference. Google it). I can't believe I'm saying this, but I want something that HP makes. The world is turned upside down!

As noted how #Neville's WWE status is up in the air after he reportedly walked out of #RAW in Indianapolis earlier this month after finding out he was scheduled to lose a non-title match to then-WWE Cruiserweight Champion #EnzoAmore that night. #Kalisto ended up winning the title from Enzo that night but sources report that the plan has been to get the title back on Enzo, possibly at this Sunday's #WWETLC pay-per-view. There were conflicting reports on if Neville really walked out of RAW but multiple sources confirmed that he was not happy with the company and that he had pushed for his release.

It was also reported that Neville's unhappiness goes back a few months as he was upset over his #WrestleMania #WM33 Kickoff pre-show win over Austin Aries being left off the WrestleMania DVD along with the other pre-show matches. This caused him to miss out on royalties from what is usually the best-selling WWE DVD of the year. It was also noted that The King of The Cruiserweights was upset over other issues. While Neville remains under contract with WWE, it was reported that he was not being factored into any creative plans and he was not being booked for any upcoming events.

In an update, Sports Illustrated reports that Neville was frustrated by the direction of his character, the lack of pay-offs and the rough WWE life on the road. Neville has reportedly been "miserable in WWE" since January of this year and the walkout came nine months later than expected by many people close to the situation.

It appears Neville's decision may be influenced in-part by #AustinAries, who left the company on amicable terms earlier this year. The SI report notes that Neville learned Aries would be making more in the next six weeks on the indies than Neville would in the same timeframe while with WWE. We noted before that Neville had pushed for his WWE release with the idea of working the indies and making a name for himself there.

Regarding his match being left off the WrestleMania 33 DVD, not only was Neville upset about missing out on the pay but he was said to be "infuriated" that the company "would disregard his service and value" after being as dedicated as he was. Neville reportedly felt that he was viewed as "nothing more than a very talented 'get-over guy' used to enhance" other Superstars.

No word yet on if WWE will grant Neville his release but SI reports that he is hoping or success in Ring of Honor or New Japan Pro Wrestling. WWE could grant the release or make Neville wait until his deal expires, or possibly explore a breach of contract, but SI adds that the walkout did upset #VinceMcMahon.

There are rumors stating that other WWE talent also wants to leave the company and have been asking #CodyRhodes about transitioning to the indies. Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer confirmed on Twitter that "several" WWE talents are thinking about leaving, although he would not confirm if wrestlers were asking Cody for advice

Stars and Dust in Corona Australis

Image Credit & Copyright: Eric Coles & Martin Pugh

Explanation: Blue dust clouds and young, energetic stars inhabit this telescopic vista, less than 500 light-years away toward the northern boundary of Corona Australis, the Southern Crown. The dust clouds effectively block light from more distant background stars in the Milky Way. But the striking complex of reflection nebulas cataloged as NGC 6726, 6727, and IC 4812 produce a characteristic blue color as light from the region's bright blue stars is reflected by the cosmic dust. The dust also obscures from view stars still in the process of formation. At the left, smaller yellowish nebula NGC 6729 bends around young variable star R Coronae Australis. Just below it, glowing arcs and loops shocked by outflows from embedded newborn stars are identified as Herbig-Haro objects. On the sky this field of view spans about one degree, corresponding to almost nine light-years at the estimated distance of the nearby star forming region.

But as scientists report in a new paper published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, sometimes people sense danger even when there is no pattern to recognize — and so their brains create their own. This phenomenon, called illusory pattern perception, they write, is what drives people who believe in conspiracy theories, like climate change deniers, 9/11 truthers, and “Pizzagate” believers.

Wall And The Wizards Hold Of The 76ers To Scrap By With A 120 - 115 Win

John Wall posted up 28 Points (10-28 FG), 8 Assists in his first game of the season while his partner in crime Bradley Beal finished with 25 Points (6-17 FG) and threw possible already the best lob pass of the season to John Wall. Marcin Gortat showed up with 16 Points, 17 Rebounds and off the Wizards bench both Kelly Oubre Jr, Jodie Meeks scored 14 Points apiece. As the Wizards hold off the young 76ers for a slim 5 point victory 120-115.

Robert Covington was the 76ers best player tonight scoring 29 Points and grabbing 7 Rebounds. While Ben Simmons in his NBA debut had 18 Points, 10 Rebounds and 5 Assists while Embiid had 18 Points, 13 Rebounds in just 27 limited minutes. With off the 76ers bench Markelle Fultz quietly scored 10 Points in his NBA debut.

The Wizards start off the season with a 1-0 record, while the 76ers fall to 0-1
