On the morning he was being ousted as Donald Trump’s chief strategist last Friday, Steve Bannon had already turned the page. “Why do you sound unfazed?” a friend asked Bannon as news of his demise ricocheted across the web. “Because,” Bannon replied, “we’re going to war.” Hours later, Bannon was calling into the editorial meeting at Breitbart News, rallying his troops to continue the battles he waged inside the White House. “We have a duty to the country to be the vanguard of ‘The Movement,’” he told his staff, according to one person on the call. Bannon’s main targets are the West Wing’s coterie of New York Democrat “globalists”—Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn—as well as the “hawks,” comprised of National Security Adviser H.R McMaster and his deputy, Dina Powell. “He wants to beat their ideas into submission,” Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow told me. “Steve has a lot of things up his sleeve.”

Pre-Eclipse Waning Moon over Wyoming

Alan: "The thin waning crescent Moon at dawn on August 20, 2017, on the last morning it could be sighted before the total eclipse on August 21. The Moon has risen over the foothills and peaks of the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, though this view is from the Idaho side looking northeast."

No guts no glory: Harvesting the microbiome of athletes

Elite athletes work hard to excel in sports, but they may also get a natural edge from the bacteria that inhabit their digestive tracts. Scientists have now tapped into the microbiome of exceptional runners and rowers, and have identified particular bacteria that may aid athletic performance. The goal is to develop probiotic supplements that may help athletes -- and even amateur fitness enthusiasts -- recover from a tough workout or more efficiently convert nutrients to energy...In another set of experiments, the researchers are comparing the bacteria from ultramarathoners to those found in rowers training for the Olympics. They found a type of bacteria in ultramarathoners that can help break down carbohydrates and fiber -- which is key during a 100-mile run -- that wasn't present in the rowers, suggesting that different sports may foster niche microbiomes.

Islands

Silhouette Island, Seychelles

This smooth and curved granite rock was once sharp and abrasive, but through countless years of sea and sand working on its surface it has become smooth to the touch and curved as per the never ending swirls of the waves sandblasting it from every direction.

On land the sun and rain are the other forces working its way through the granite, but the result is never as smooth as that being in the tidal zone as this one.

This is like a miniature island, as during low tide it is surrounded by the sand, and during high tide it is a true island with the sea surrounding it.

In the back you see the largest of all the granite islands – Mahe.

"What are the implications of a technology that seems to be converging on the sharing of consciousness?

It would be a lot easier to answer that question if anyone knew what consciousness is. There’s no shortage of theories. Their models – right or wrong – describe computation, not awareness."

-----------------------------

Physics describes a world of intelligent zombies who do everything we do, except understand that they’re doing it. That’s what we should be, that’s all we should be: meat and computation. Somehow the meat woke up.

This is all preamble, though, a set‑up to the question posed at the outset: what are the implications of a technology that wires brains together, that in theory at least permits the existence of hive minds?

-----------------------

The local personae are obliterated, absorbed into a greater whole; as the Finnish computer scientists recently declared in the International Journal of Machine Consciousness, ‘the biological brain cannot support multiple separate conscious attentional processes in the same brain medium’. Remember that. It could end up biting us in the ass a few years down the road.

If we do stop short of a hive mind, it’s unlikely to be because we lack the tech; it’ll only be because we lack the nerve. Consciousness remains mysterious. But there’s no reason to regard it as magical, no evidence of spectral bonds that hold a soul in one head and keep it from leaking into another. And one of the things we do know is that consciousness spreads to fill the space available. Smaller selves disappear into larger; two hemispheres integrate into one.

Keep the bandwidth too low and you lose the experience; edge it too high and you lose yourself. Throughout history we’ve communicated via the equivalent of dial‑up, through speech and writing and images on screens. A fat enough neural interface could turn everything broadband, act as a next-gen corpus callosum that fuses we into some new kind of I that’s never existed before.

---------------------

There’s a machine in a lab in Berkeley, California, that can read the voxels right off your visual cortex and figure out what you’re looking at based solely on brain activity. One of its creators, Kendrick Kay, suggested back in 2008 that we’d eventually be able to read dreams (also, that we might want to take a closer look at certain privacy issues before that happened). His best guess was that this might happen a few decades down the road – but it took only four years for a computer in a Japanese lab to predict the content of hypnagogic hallucinations (essentially, dreams without REM) at 60 per cent accuracy, based entirely on fMRI data.

Not certain why anyone is writing an article about the data from the survey that came out in March, but it is good timing for me as I'm about the start a new semester and the question of "why Scala?" inevitably has to be addressed. The real answer is pedagogical, but this one resonates with students well.

This Day in Aviation History
August 21st, 1944
First flight of the Grumman F8F Bearcat.
 
The Grumman F8F Bearcat (nicknamed "Bear") was a single-engine American fighter aircraft introduced in late World War II. It went on to serve into the mid-20th century in the United States Navy, the United States Marine Corps, and the air forces of other nations. It would be Grumman Aircraft's final piston engined fighter aircraft. Modified versions have broken speed records for piston-engined aircraft, and are popular among warbird owners.....

As the nations tap more energy from #sun, celestial event like #solarEclipse happening in #USA within 24 hours pose problems to #grid management during eclipse period. Advising the consumers on #conservation practice, pumping #greenEnergy from non-affected areas, using #fossil fuels powered energy from affected locations and keeping standby #generators running in most of the #buildings are some of the actions planned. The service providers are confident that the grid operation would be smooth during the eclipse period. Many #experiments are also planned for this event in USA. As the eclipse covers the entire width of this country, scientists are excited about the ample time available for collecting enough data for research. I am also interested in the outcome of the experiments that would throw up more light on many questions about #eclipses.
