    THIS IS AN OPEN THREAD

    Oh, do we some football today!

    That USC team out West is lookin’ good, Sam Darnold WILL be playing on Sundays. So will Washington’s Jake Browning. These two are perfect examples of classic Dan Marino / Joe Montana Qb’s. They are NOT read-zone squirrel brains like Kaepernick and RGIII, both of whom are unemployed. One is a lefy scum and the other is a God-fearing conservative. Being a shitty, squirrel-brained quarterback knows no politics.

    But, all eyes are on Alabama who are agains the Pre-Season #1.

    #11 Michigan at #17 Florida 3:30 PM. In my world, M should be winning, it means that the Galaxy is in balance. I grew up with M playing and winning every Saturday, same with Notre Dame. Them having a good season brings peace and harmony to the world, at least on Saturdays. Michigan is a 5 point favorite on the road at the ‘Gators. Jim Harbaugh’s boys had a massive turnover after last season, they are now almost last in experience in D1. He will win a national championship soon, but not this year, I would go against the spread and even think of an upset if a whole bunch of Gators weren’t suspended. Michigan covers on the road for that reason. Harbaugh is going to have to beat Ohio State and soon, well, OSU looked beatable against the Hoosiers Thursday night.

    #3 Florida State at #1 Alabama 8:00 PM. #3 at #1 in Week 1! The Playoffs sure have changed things, now you have to impress and play the hard games out of conference. This will be the FSU defense game to lose. Reno has FSU getting 7 points. The ‘Noles are 7 point dogs? With that defense? No Way. The ‘Noles beat that spread!

    THEN ON SUNDAY:

    #22 West Virginia at #21 Virginia Tech 7:30 PM. Is the WVU offense for real? This will be a great test. West BY-God Virginia is a 4 point dog, they UPSET the Hoakies on the road. Those toothless, ridge-runnin, hicks had better pull it off too because it pains a PITT grad to even think of WVU winning. This should be a fun game to watch.

    Texas A&M at UCLA 7:30 PM. Vegas has The Aggies as a 4 point dog. Nope, they cover. This should be a really good game as well.

    MONDAY:

    #25 Tennessee at Georgia Tech 8:00 PM. The Vols are 3 point favorites on the road. Caesar’s has the Vols at 3 point favorites. They should cover.

      Pelosi Wants To Meet With Ryan To Help Dreamers

      House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and top Hispanic lawmakers want to meet as soon as possible with Republican leaders in a bid to help young undocumented immigrants avoid losing their legal protections.

      Pelosi (D-Calif.) made the request on behalf of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) Friday afternoon. Earlier in the day, Ryan told a local Wisconsin radio station he didn’t think President Donald Trump should end a program that shields undocumented immigrants brought here as children, known as Dreamers, from deportation.

      Pelosi said she was “heartened” by Ryan’s comments and thinks they open the path to compromise.

      “That is why I am writing to ask you to meet with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other House Democratic leaders as soon as we return next week to discuss a comprehensive legislative solution for our country’s DREAMers,” Pelosi wrote. […]

      “Deporting patriotic, courageous young men and women who are American in every way would be disastrous for our communities, our economy and our nation,” Pelosi wrote.

      Democrats want Ryan to bring legislation known as the Dream Act to the House floor to continue DACA and create an eventual path to citizenship for the program’s participants.

      Return of the Uniparty…

      so you know how if you have items of wool clothing you might want to store them so that moths don’t get to them? ok, hold that thought

      But the “Grand Designs-esq” adventure turned into a nightmare when she discovered the highly sustainable wool she had chosen to insulate the four-bed property was hosting a moth infestation of “biblical proportions”.

      @ lobo91:

      I love stuff like that. Eco-whack jobs with the common sense of a retarded chicken. But the best part is that my favorite word was in there: sustainable. Not just ‘sustainable’, mind you but HIGHLY sustainable. the 2nd best story I’ve seen all week, the first being the court ruling that the Cherokee nation has to give citizenship to the descendants of all the people they held as SLAVES, so I’m waiting for the Indigenous Peoples Holiday to get changed to Oppression Awareness Day and they can all fight each other in the streets for the Most Victimized Trophy.

      5.3 would get one’s attention here in the ‘Shaky Isles’

      We don’t even get out of bed for anything below 4.0

      We get on an average several thousand ‘earthquakes’ daily in NZ. After a while they all just merge into normality.

      If NZ stopped shaking everyone would immediately fall flat on our faces, as we’ve become used to the ground moving beneath our feet and making the necessary adjustments when just waking about !

      “We’re not green activists but we wanted to do the right thing,” she said.

      Oh no, of course you aren’t.

      “We went for an adventurous design, very airy with lots of space, and we wanted it to be as ecologically friendly as possible.”

      Gee, sounds pretty activist to me.

      However, the cost of the ruined wool, as well as removing and replacing it is likely to come to nearly £10,000, negating any savings gained from low energy bills.

      …and once again, the green solution proves more expensive than the more conventional alternatives. There’s a reason those other approaches were developed, and no, it’s not because the developers hate the Earth.

      I presume living 80 miles from the 5 volcanoes known as Salton Buttes constitutes even by Australian/New Zealand standards as REAL MEN stuff.

      My better half’s late anniversary/early birthday present to me was a bike. I’ve gotten more exercise in the last month using that thing than I have in years! Rode just over 100 miles during August, I’m up to about 3.5 miles twice a day, and I’ve dropped almost 10 pounds.

      Hoping to drop another 5-7 before we head to TX.

      It certainly does mate.
      But if you want to go the ‘whole nine yards Batshit crazy’ you plant your whole city on the slopes of 14 quiescent volcanos, with one born off the beach, just 800 years ago. A mere bouncing baby in volcano terms. ‘Batshit crazy’ is considered a real asset in Auckland! I live on the flanks of a mere 80,000 year old teenager called Mt. Hobson.

      An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: “Dr.Geezer’s clinic. Get your treatment for $500, if not cured, get back $1,000.”

      Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000. So he went to Dr.Geezer’s clinic.

      Dr. Young: “Dr.Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?” Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”

      Dr. Young: Aaagh! — “This is Gasoline!” Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back.That will be $500.”

      Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money. Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.” Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.” Dr. Young: “Oh, no you don’t, — that is Gasoline!” Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back.

      That will be $500.”

      Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

      Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak — I can hardly see anything!”

      Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so, ” Here’s your $1000 back.” (giving him a $10 bill)

      Dr. Young: “But this is only $10!”

      Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.” Moral of story — Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer”

      Remember: Don’t make old people mad. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off.

      Georgia Tech, which returns 15 total starters, went 9-4 last season. More importantly, Tech was 3-0 against the SEC last season and is 5-1 in its last six games against SEC teams. Tech’s track record says it’s tough enough for the occasion

      If North Korea did indeed just test a Hydrogen Bomb, having also just tested a ICBM then Beijing’s arrogance is about to bite Beijing’s ass right off.

      To wit; Japan has been debating their own self imposed restriction on nuclear weapons. Their resolve to remain a non nuclear weapons nation has been crumbling. Japan has everything necessary to become a nuclear power virtually over night. They have a strategic stockpile of enriched Uranium (in the neighborhood of 1000 M/T of “Spent Fuel”) which can be converted into weapons grade fuel in a mere matter of weeks.

      They have the centrifuges in sufficient numbers to accomplish this task. They have the industry and technology to bypass the majority of the learning curve required. Japan’s Physicists and Engineer’s are more than equal to the task. Everything Japan needs to become a Nuclear power is literally sitting on a shelf merely awaiting to be assembled.

      Moreover, unlike North Korea or Iran, Japan has the knowledge and expertise in Rocketry and Missile technology to produce ICBM’s over night. It has also been hinted at that Shinto Abe is itching to make Japan a Nuclear power. To my knowledge the Japanese Diet (Japan’s version of Congress) has debated the issue at least 3 times in the last 15 years.


    37. 39 | September 3, 2017 11:28 am

      @ doriangrey:

      I should also point out this one curious fact. Being the only nation on earth to be the recipient of nuclear weapons used in a war, Japan is perhaps the one nation on earth who could declare that they are starting a nuclear weapons system without receiving world wide condemnation for doing so. In effect, because of WWII, Japan has a “Free Pass” to build nuclear weapons should they so chose to.

      @ doriangrey:

      All of which puts us in a very awkward position. Japan is our ally, but the Chinese will NEVER forgive them, not EVER, for their invasion and who can blame them. I can imagine they would love another chance to annihilate the perpetrators of The Rape of Nanking. Having said that, it has been the security of the U.S. military that has allowed the economic development of the region and my imagination fails at what happens if that balance is upset. China doesn’t seem to take the failure of my imagination into its calculus, however. I have a host of stuff I want to talk to Aussie about but haven’t had time to sit and get everything together

      Considerably less so than your imagination informs you. The Japan Self-Defense Forces are limited only by Japan’s self imposed restrictions. Even so, they rate as one of the most technologically advanced and capable military’s on earth. They are not a joke and are fully capable of bringing the very serious hurt. They are ranked as the 7th most powerful military on earth.

      As far as the “Raping of Nanking” goes, yes the Japanese were bastards, but what the Japanese did was nothing compared to what Chairman Mao did to China. While the nation of Japan might owe China an apology for WWII, the current citizens of Japan bear no responsibility for WWII.

      Beijing allowed their rabid junkyard dog to get lose, Beijing will now suffer the consequences of its own narcissistic arrogance. Their animosities towards Japan not withstanding. China can officially STFD and STFU they sowed to the wind now they must reap from the whirlwind.

      Walter Becker, Steely Dan Guitarist, Dies at 67

      Walter Becker, guitarist, bassist and co-writer for the sophisticated, dark-humored band Steely Dan, has died. He was 67.

      The news was confirmed by a post on Becker’s personal website. No cause of death was announced.

      Becker had cancelled his appearances at the recent Classic West and Classic East concerts due to illness.

      His bandmate Donald Fagen released a statement describing their long partnership and said, “I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band.”

      The more retiring full-term member of the group, Becker was partnered with singer-keyboardist and co-writer Fagen on a string of jazzy, sleekly produced singles and albums that ruled the charts during the ‘70s. After a protracted hiatus, “the Dan” returned to popularity in the ‘90s; their 2000 album “Two Against Nature” collected four Grammys, including one for album of the year.

      The pair’s gimlet-eyed, covertly perverse music, garbed in gleaming pop melodies, bebop-derived harmonies and shimmering production, was variously performed with a core working band in the group’s initial heyday; those players were ultimately, and permanently, supplanted by a rotating cast of mostly jazz-schooled studio sidemen.

      Becker was largely absent from the musical stage during Steely Dan’s extended separation from 1981-93. It was only after the group’s reunion that he undertook solo recording: His albums “11 Tracks of Whack” (produced by Fagen in 1994) and “Circus Money” (2008) failed to duplicate the band’s success.

      He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Fagen in 2001; with typical dry humor, the pair tersely solicited questions from the star-filled audience during one of the shortest acceptance speeches on record.

      Michigan won big in the trenches, and the defense that lost nearly everyone held Florida to 192 yards. Remove those two pick-sixes, and it’s a bit of a laffer, very unexpected I would think. I have no idea how much the suspended players would have helped the Gators.

      Bit of a QB-controversy in A2, with Speight playing both very well and very poorly at times. The first interception wasn’t his fault, as it went off the receiver’s hands, but the second was an abysmal overthrow. I didn’t like that he got yanked right after that, but I trust Harbaugh knows what he’s doing. It worked, too, as Speight was settled down when he returned in the second half.

      The B1G schedule is a long, rugged road, but it looks like UM is up to the challenge again. OSU looms large, as usual. There’s usually a bad “let-down loss” somewhere along the way, as you can’t be at your peak every week. If it’s another 10-win season in this “rebuilding year,” I’m happy with it. As long as we beat the Buckeyes. 😉

      Glenn Beck Keeps Personal Chef Amid Bloodbath of Firings at The Blaze

      Even though Glenn Beck fired 30 percent of his staff at his dwindling media enterprise the Blaze Thursday afternoon, he still managed to keep his personal chef on the company payroll.
      The Daily Beast reported that employees who were related to Beck’s close friend Robert Shelton managed to escape the bloodbath of job cuts, including Robert’s son Matthew Shelton, who is Beck’s personal chef.

      Another family member who managed to survive the mass layoffs was Shelton’s daughter Bailey, who kept her job as a makeup artist.

      In a meeting with the remaining employees of the company Thursday, Beck stressed that the job cuts he made were strictly for business reasons and not for any personal reasons.

      “There are no sacred cows, no ‘friends of Glenn,’” Beck said, a witness of the meeting told the Beast. “Nobody is here because they’re good at kissing my ass.”

      This is not the first time Beck laid off a large number of employees. In April 2016, Beck laid off 40 employees of the site to “satisfy the requirements of a multi-million-dollar bank loan” Beck took out to keep his struggling media enterprise afloat.

      The loan came around the same time Beck purchased a $200,000 Maybach sedan and a private jetliner.

      I don’t understand of this but it’s probably important.

      Physicists Demonstrate Record Breaking Long-Distance Quantum Entanglement in Space

      “We have demonstrated the distribution of two entangled photons from a satellite to two ground stations that are 1,203 kilometers [748 miles] apart,” lead author Juan Yin, physicist at the Science and Technology University of China in Shanghai, explained in a research paper published in the journal Science. The previous record for entanglement distribution reached only 100 kilometers (62 miles).

      Yin’s team used the Micius, the world’s first quantum-enabled satellite which China launched in 2016, to transmit entangled photons to several ground stations separated by long distances. They managed to achieve this feat by using laser beams to prevent the light particles from getting lost as they traveled.

      and this….

      For the First Time Ever, Quantum Communication is Demonstrated in Real-World City Conditions

      In a massive step forward, researchers have sent the first quantum-secured message through the air above a city containing more than one bit of information. This proof-of-concept success means that high-capacity, free-space quantum communication will one day be both a practical and secure process between satellites and Earth—and a worldwide quantum encryption network will also be feasible.

      In their demonstration, researchers used 4D quantum encryption to transmit data over a free-space optical network between two buildings. The buildings on the University of Ottawa campus stand 0.3 kilometers apart. The high-dimensional encryption scheme is described as “4D” because it sends more information, as every photon encodes two bits of information.

      she’s probably getting paid by the head and who knows how many of them will even be real? Verrit? Here…it’s a social media platform for the 68.5 million (who voted for you-know-who) where “Barriers can come down. Justice and equality can win.”

      Hillary Clinton endorsed @Verrit, our new media platform, an hour ago and we’ve already been subjected to a denial-of-service attack.

      That’s from Peter Daou who is OBSESSED with Hillary

      They’re still under a DOS attack so sorry, no linky

      One of the crucial required steps for faster than light space travel. Real time communications over light year or greater distances. Remember, the closest star to us is 4.3 light years away. Think, time between asking a question and getting a response being 8.6 years.

      Without real time communications space exploration pretty much ceases around the Oort Cloud. With real time instantaneous communications it becomes possible to actually consider space exploration to other star systems.

      Lets say you want to send a probe to Proxima Centauri, you send it at 10% of the Speed of light (a speed which we are currently capable of achieving) 18,600mph. Between here and Proxima Centauri the trip is going to take around 55 to 60 years (speed up and slow down times included).

      In the mostly empty space between here and Proxima Centauri there’s not really much for our probe to need to maneuver around so taking years to communicate with the probe is only frustrating and annoying.

      When it reaches Proxima Centauri on the other hand there is going to be a lot of stuff it needs to not crash into. Stuff that you are not going to have 8 and a half years to dodge.

      If you are going to get any data at all from your probe, it needs to survive. 50 to 60 years is a long time to wait to discover that your probe crashed into a planet or moon you did not know was in its way.

      Instant real time communications would make the wait of 50 to 60 years something a lot of people would be willing to contemplate. Someone in their 20’s or 30’s could conceivably live long enough to see the real time results of that wait.

      UN Security Council To Hold Emergency Meeting Monday On North Korea

      The United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Monday to discuss North Korea’s announcement that it had tested a hydrogen bomb.

      U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley confirmed the meeting on Twitter Sunday.

      News of the meeting comes after North Korea state media announced on Sunday the country had successfully tested a miniaturized hydrogen bomb capable of fitting on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

      @ doriangrey:
      I think you and eagles are talking cross purposes here.

      She posted an article about being able to quantum encrypt satellite communications travelling merely at the speed of light. Whereas you were talking about faster than light communications using entangled photons.

      I always thought that instantaneous transmission of data using entangled state photons was impossible.

      Knowing what the state of the spin of an entangled photon on the other side of the universe is one thing but transmitting actual data using that entanglement reality is something else entirely?

      Or am I missing something here?

      Star-Trek subspace communications is yet to escape the Universal studios I think !

      🙂

      I sure hope that I’m wrong, because instantaneous comms facilitate stellar travel.

      🙂

      Yea, you are missing something. Long distance quantum entanglement.

      Don’t feel bad mate, that what most classical physicists used to think too. Turns out they were wrong. IBM showed several years ago that Quantum entangled particles have near infinite state changes. So in essence, they are like nand or nor gates.

      They can be flicked back and forth between states amazingly quickly which means that they can be used to encode and decode data just like any mox/demox gate array. Zero is on, 1 is off, now repeat infinitum.

      Since IBM’s discovery the question has more or less been “Is there a distance limitation to quantum entanglement”. Laser’s being straight line things by nature, testing entanglement over large distances presented problems. i.e. the horizon is 40 miles away from any ground point starting point. (Don’t be a smartypants Mr flyboy yes distance to horizon increases as ones altitude increases, but so does ones cost in packing up their nice tidily cluttered little research lab and equipment into some crazy yahoo’s flying deathtrap contraption)

      The beauty of IBM’s discovery is that it doesn’t violate any of the laws of “The Standard Model”. You are not transmitting information faster than light. This is where the mox/demox encoding comes in.

      What you are doing is switching a light switch on and off very quickly. No classical information is exchanged between entangled particle a) and entangled particle b). However once you use mox/demox encoding to change entangled particle a) back and forth between 0 and 1 in a controlled sequence, entangled particle b) automatically reproduced a reverse image of that encoded sequence.

      The only question that still remains, involves the capture and long term storage of entangled particle b). Which probably isn’t an issue if entangled particle a) and entangled particle b) are both being projected onto a MRAM array for reading. (The entangled charge i.e. the Fermion weak nuclear charge carried by the photon, could be trapped in the MRAM’s magnetic bit cells and retained there for as long as the bit cells remain magnetically charged)

      The data being encoded into entangled particle a) could then be read from entangled particle b) as though it was being read straight out of systems memory. Because it would in effect literally be being read straight out of systems memory.

      The Standard Models Causality law would be unaffected because no classical information would actually be exchanged between entangled particles a) and b) only their states would be switched very rapidly which does not violate causality. But like old Mores Code, it does allow you to transmit information.

      While it is incredibly hard to violate/break the laws of physics, the universe seems to take a perverse joy in allowing those very same laws to be bent into pretzel shapes.
