2021.10.21 11:49 BrandySnapped Insects - Of God or Man?
The name of the game is Survival of The Fittest but I've always felt that most insects are designed to specifically seek and destroy only.
It made me wonder if a lot of our nastier insects may have been drones biologically engineered by a previous, defeated, human society and despite it impossible to hunt down and destroy every last drone it was simple enough, on a collective level, to just delete their primary agenda as assassins.

2021.10.21 11:49 Legitimate_Vast_3271 Vatican meeting explores challenge of artificial intelligence
Pontifical Council confused by what is a human being, believes artificial intelligence could be a human being created in the image of a human being and supports the doctrine of human evolution with the aid of artificial intelligence and considers the possible merger between human beings and artificial intelligence. In scripture these concepts are known as idolatry.
'The Pontifical Council for Culture and the German Embassy to the Holy See host a one-day symposium starting on Thursday looking at "The Challenge of Artificial Intelligence for Human Society and the Idea of the Human Person". By Vatican News staff writer
The symposium on Artificial Intelligence – or AI – organized by the Pontifical Council for Culture, in cooperation with the German Embassy to the Holy See, will open in Rome on Thursday.
The theme for the gathering is, “The Challenge of Artificial Intelligence for Human Society and the Idea of the Human Person”. The aim of the meeting is to promote a better awareness of the profound cultural impact AI is likely to have on human society. . .
Experts from the Allen Institute for Brain Science, Goethe University, Boston College, and Google will discuss questions regarding AI and whether it can reproduce consciousness, AI and philosophical challenges, and AI and religion, and what it would mean in relation to Catholic doctrine. . .
The emphasis in the morning is to have something on how AI really asks us to think again what it means to be human, if artificial intelligence, particularly general artificial intelligence, would be kind of somewhat autonomous, able to reprogram themselves and do sorts of things that we would have thought in the past were exclusively human activities. It invites us to think about what is it that really makes us human? What is it that makes us different? So, one person looking at it is a neuroscientist. What are we learning about consciousness? How do our brains work? Could machines be able to imitate that and achieve the same results? Or is there something different about human consciousness that we need to reflect on? Also, then it will be looked at by a philosopher who will be studying these issues. How does philosophy help society in general think about how AI, which is coming, will be integrated into our ways of living, into our political processes, into our working environments. And the final intervention in the morning is a theologian, James Keenan, who will be examining: how does AI ask us to reflect about issues we’ve always been concerned of in Catholic doctrine, Catholic moral teaching? So, there are issues then about the applications. How do we think about the possibility that AI may be involved in situations of warfare? How does it ask us to think about lethal and autonomous weapons? How could it transform the world of work? How does our Catholic tradition have much to reflect there? And maybe more importantly it asks us, if you take AI in conjunction with nanotechnologies, with our developing cognitive sciences, with gene editing, how do we think about a future where human beings may be able to in some sense take in hand our evolution and program our evolution."
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” - Genesis 1:27.

2021.10.21 11:49 The_Advocates_Devil_ Job Offer: What Could I have done differently?
Me: Grad student with a PhD in a STEM subject just getting out of school. Not desperate for money but it would be nice to have breathing room for the first time in a decade.
The Offer: The remuneration was good and the contract had all the intangibles on my dream list: work from home, flexible schedule, option to work overseas, and working with clients in varying industries as well as stipends for tech. Keep in mind the skillset required for this job would require me going through training and had some overlap with my expertise but not substantially. It seemed like they really wanted me for my personality and work ethic.
The Counter: I liked all the perks and intangibles so my goal was to move them on compensation. I made the counter of 12% more. Why? They had already informed me early on what their upper limit is for a new recruit and it is roughly 15% more than their offer. I had a goal of 7% more so I figured ask for 12% and settle on anything above 7%.
Their Response: With no prior experience in their industry they couldn't budge on the comp but they were emphatic that they are entrepreneurial with their staff so work ethic and results are rewarded by way of bonuses and profit sharing. Because the company is a large global conglomerate my concerns about the money were attenuated. They really made an effort to let me know that the starting salary is by no means stagnant and their are many options for growth.
Leverage: I was interviewing with two other company's and both company's seemed like a sure thing. The problem with one of those company's is their start date would be sometime in 2022. I cannot wait that long. The other company is a startup and I have a strong relationship with them already through an internship. Their start date is early 2022 but the comp is 20% more than the offer above. Work from home and flex schedule were in an unofficial offer too. My two concerns are the 2022 start date and the fact that they rely on seed funding to keep the company alive. Also, there was no official offer just words exchanged between me and the CEO. Basically, I couldn't walk away from the offer above because it was the only tangible offer I had in hand i.e. I pretty much had no leverage.
Possible Items to Negotiate: Once they said no to the comp I suppose I could've made one more request for a sign on bonus, but I have a strong feeling this would've been rejected and might have annoyed the gentleman who I would ultimately be working under. This was probably a mistake on my behalf. I realize now I should have made this ask.
My Question: To those of you out there with extensive job offer negotiations what would you have done differently in my shoes given the information above? What other items could you have negotiated other than comp and sign on bonus?

2021.10.21 11:49 toooldforthisnonsens Insanity causing me to miss out on 3, 4-day weekends over the next 2 months
I work for a really killer organization. The owner announced 3, 4-day weekends in November and December.
I can't take advantage of any of them. The STBXW will not budge from week-on, week-off custody. She shows up at 7am Monday morning, regardless of whether or not it's a holiday.
She'll wake our 15 year old up at 6am on a holiday morning, if it happens to be a Monday, and drops him off at my place. No discussion, no flexibility, nothing.
She holds my free-time ransom while we wait on courts to stop the madness.

hey, I’m currently going through something pretty rough right now and I don’t think people understand that being a DP2 student is n o t helping whatsoever. I just need some advice, I feel really demotivated because of my situation and I really do not want to slack off because I’ve been consistent with my efforts this term. Does anyone have any advice?

2021.10.21 11:49 mandopando9789 Not sure if this is ibs
Since I was about 18 I've has stomach issues. I don't necessarily get abdominal pain(sometimes I do but rarely) but mainly the pain with the immediate strong urge to poop. Almost everyday I all of my poops start with the immediate pain and strong urge to go. I carry pepto, and tums in my car and recently picked up immodium( haven't tried it yet). I can't remember the last time I had a solid poop. I also wake up 2 hours before work in the morning to immediately slam a cup of coffee and chew nicotine gum to try and clear myself out for the day before leaving the house. Because that's another thing it always seems to hit me right before I have to go somewhere or just inconvenient times in general. My poops are not only not solid but very weird. It varies but it's either soft and particle like, soft and stringy, or the best way to describe it is a literal pie floating on the water. Sorry for the grossness. It's normal in color unless I took a lot of pepto then it's dark. But just not sure what's been going on.
