Would A Third Of Europeans Really Prefer A Robot Prime Minister?

After three years of “Brexit” chatter and still no sense of direction, it is perhaps little surprise that many in the UK would hand over the job of government to intelligent robots. Indeed, according to European Tech Insights 2019 presented by IE University, Spain, as many as a third of Europeans would choose AI above their fellow human when it comes to making the tough decisions that come with running a country. This is based on the responses of 2,576 adults aged 18 to 99 from France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, and the UK – an arguably pretty limited survey pool, but more on that later. The purpose of the exercise was to find out how the European public feel about the technological changes …

Why Joe Biden’s ‘inevitability’ campaign may be a mistake

Washington (CNN)Joe Biden isn’t running for president. Yet. Major endorsements. An early VP pick. Both are clear signs that what Biden wants to do — from the second he enters the race — is make clear that the field is really him and then everyone else. That he isn’t just one of the many candidates running, but that he’s the heavy favorite. Polling, generally speaking, bears out the idea that Biden starts the race on top. A new CNN-SSRS national poll showed Biden leading the field with 28%, followed by Bernie Sanders at 20%, Kamala Harris at 12% and Beto O’Rourke at 11%. No other candidate received double-digit support.

Bernie Sanders Tests An Updated Pitch In Once-Hostile Territory

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. ― When Sen. (I-Vt.) traveled to South Carolina for the first time as a 2020 presidential candidate on Thursday,  in the state’s Democratic presidential primary three years earlier seemed like a distant memory. Mounting the stage in the gymnasium of a Baptist church to the Doobie Brothers’ “Taking It To The Streets,” Sanders received the kind of fawning reception to which he has become accustomed in larger and more liberal American cities. The crowd, 1,600 strong, according to Sanders’ campaign, welcomed him with chants of “Ber-nie” and roars of support that initially made it hard for him to complete his sentences. “Thank you for being part of a campaign which is not only going to win the …

‘Queer Eye’ stars settle the ‘squirrel’ debate and you might not like what they have to say

Queer Eye is back, and with it, the new series has brought something of a debate to the internet. The Fab Five’s resident Brit, Tan France, said the word “squirrel” during episode one and instantly divided the internet over the correct pronunciation of the word.  Well, as a fellow Brit, I’m very much Team Tan on this one. Squirrel has two syllables.  Jonathan Van Ness is also Team Tan and he chimed in during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “It’s two syllables,” he said.  So, as Tan says: “America, the correct pronunciation for ‘squirl’ is ‘squir-rel.’” Glad we got that cleared up.

Why Are So Many Ancient Statues Nose-Less?

Once or twice and you can chalk it up to an unfortunate accident, but when the majority of ancient statues have had their noses removed, something fishy is going on. Clearly, they have been targeted – but why? Edward Bleiberg, a curator for Brooklyn Museum’s Egyptian art galleries, admits it was something he took for granted until he started to notice the number of visitors questioning the nose-lessness of many of the museum’s statues. Assuming it was accidental, he decided to delve into the matter more deeply. The result, built on previous research about defacement and the afterlife, is now being presented in an exhibit called “Striking Power: Iconoclasm in Ancient Egypt”. “The consistency of the patterns where damage is found …
