EnochWalked: www.vox.com/platform/amp/future-perfect/2023/9/19/23879648/americans-artificial-general-intelligence-ai-policy-poll "63 percent of voters say regulation should aim to actively prevent AI superintelligence." What if China has one, though? Sept 20, 2023 7:17:13 GMT -6
EnochWalked: The article answers that: "67 percent of voters said we should restrict how powerful AI models can become, even though that risks making American companies fall behind China. Only 14 percent disagreed." Surrendering before the war has even begun. Sept 20, 2023 7:20:31 GMT -6

EnochWalked: www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-66863702 "Under the terms of the truce, local [Armenian] forces commit to being completely disbanded as well as disarmed" "Moscow's interest in Armenia has waned during its war in Ukraine". I fear for their future. Sept 20, 2023 12:24:07 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.theguardian.com/world/2023/sep/19/world-inching-ever-closer-to-a-great-fracture-says-un-chief 'He said global governance was “stuck in time” at a point when strong, modern, multilateral institutions were in greater need than ever.' Sept 20, 2023 12:28:10 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.israelnationalnews.com/news/376471 "Jordan’s King Abdullah and PLO chairman Mahmoud Abbas have broken their 15 months long silence by finally rejecting the Hashemite Kingdom of Palestine solution". Would have merged Palestine with Jordan. Sept 20, 2023 14:24:35 GMT -6
EnochWalked: "On 24 September 2023 at about 8:42 MDT (UTC−06:00) , the OSIRIS-REx return capsule is scheduled to re-enter Earth's atmosphere and land by parachute at the Air Force's Utah Test and Training Range." Something to watch for, if we get that far. 8-) Sept 20, 2023 14:28:51 GMT -6

Bshop234: Would love to see the eclipse revisited and where it intersects over Illinois. The area known as Little Egypt used to be prosperous and a populated town that suffered from racial tension and poor government. Sept 20, 2023 20:33:25 GMT -6
Bshop234: The town is now simply a shadow of what once was. Was this the message of the 2017/2024 eclipse? Sept 20, 2023 20:34:37 GMT -6
EnochWalked: Some interesting discussion there, thanks Bshop. I agree with the comment which suggests that a "shopping mecca" isn't the height of civilization. "Western Civilization ended slavery and then landed a man on the moon, invented airplanes AND nuclear power." Sept 20, 2023 23:21:05 GMT -6
EnochWalked: And yes, that area known as Little Egypt does seem like it should be a focal point. I wish that a local Bible believing church would hold a service there, right at the point where the two eclipse paths cross, to preach repentance, like John the Baptist. Sept 20, 2023 23:24:11 GMT -6
EnochWalked: www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-66852841 'The video got millions of views and was widely criticised, prompting another Indonesian to report her to the police for "knowingly eating pork skin as a Muslim".' Seems safer not to be Muslim then? Sept 21, 2023 2:15:54 GMT -6

EnochWalked: Fascinating, thank you Lee! "The images show a card with room for a photograph, a QR code and identifying information and security details, as well as the ICE logo in the top left corner." How long before he/someone decides citizens need them too? Sept 21, 2023 9:12:00 GMT -6
