Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the Syrian conflict in a phone call Wednesday afternoon, two days after Israeli jets bombed an anti-aircraft battery near Damascus which had fired on an Israeli plane, the Kremlin said.
The two leaders also discussed the Iran nuclear deal and Iraqi Kurdistan, according to Moscow.
“There was a thorough discussion of ways to resolve the Syrian crisis, the situation surrounding Iran’s nuclear program and the results of the referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan,” a statement from the Kremlin read.
Increasingly, it’s looking like chatbots are going to be the ones helping some of us to accept the inevitable and wrestle with our very human questions about death. Researchers are already making bots that can talk people through their personal and, importantly, spiritual anxieties about death in addition to helping them plan for the end. What that says about us, I’m really not sure. Chatbots like LifeFolder’s Emily have popped up to mimic conversations with healthcare workers to help people plan—Emily, according to the company, is meant to imitate a “trained nurse” and walks you through end-of-life planning decisions like choosing someone to handle your affairs, etc…
Since Christ first promised His disciples He would return, Christians have wondered if their generation is the one that would witness the fulfillment of that promise. And probably every generation since has thought itself to be the last generation, basing their belief on the perceived or actual declining moral standards of society in their day. Yet for all the speculation and hearsay, only one generation can be the final generation, and all the evidence points to ours.
Eleven years ago, Chuck Colson put Hefner’s legacy into proper perspective. On the occasion of Heffner’s 80th birthday, Chuck said that “Hugh Hefner did more than anyone else to turn America into a great pornographic wasteland.” Hefner’s journalistic eulogists are celebrating his rebellion and ultimate triumph over the “puritanical elements of the [1950s].” You know, that “dark and joyless time in America,” as writer Matthew Scully put it, “when one could actually go about daily life without ever encountering pornographic images.” Without Hefner’s pioneering vision, “American males could not avail themselves of hundreds of millions of obscene films every year—as they do now.” That our pornographic wasteland is filled with so many victims is also part of the man’s legacy, which can only be fully understand in light of the larger story of the sexual revolution.
Athletes need to be fitted with microchips, in a similar way that dogs are, in the fight against drug cheats in sport, according to a leading representative of international sports people. Mike Miller, the World Olympians Association chief executive, claimed that radical anti-doping methods – including implants to recognise the effects of banned substances – are needed to protect clean sport. “Some people say we shouldn’t do this to people,” Miller said. “Well, we’re a nation of dog lovers, we’re prepared to chip our dogs and it doesn’t seem to harm them, so why aren’t we prepared to chip ourselves?” Miller claims a breakthrough in microchip technology is on the horizon and testers need to be aware of developments.
It has been widely debated among the science community for years, but now Nasa claims that Planet Nine does exist. The space agency highlights five different lines of evidence pointing to the existence of the mysterious world, and says that imagining that Planet Nine does not exist generates more problems than you solve. Researchers are now using the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii in the hopes of finding Planet Nine, and hope that its detection will also shed light on its origin.
The computers that run those services have programmed themselves, and they have done it in ways we cannot understand. Even the engineers who build these apps cannot fully explain their behavior. This raises mind-boggling questions. As the technology advances, we might soon cross some threshold beyond which using AI requires a leap of faith. Sure, we humans can’t always truly explain our thought processes either—but we find ways to intuitively trust and gauge people. Will that also be possible with machines that think and make decisions differently from the way a human would? We’ve never before built machines that operate in ways their creators don’t understand. How well can we expect to communicate—and get along with—intelligent machines that could be unpredictable and inscrutable?
Our society has embraced the idea of allowing gender-confused small children to determine for themselves whether they are boys or girls with very little regard for the consequences.
The head of an association of Olympic athletes wants to require anyone who participates in the Summer or Winter Games to be implanted with a tracking chip.
For months now, Western counterterrorism experts have sounded the alarm: as ISIS loses ground, foreign fighters from America and Europe may try to return home.
Muslim professor says genocide against Whites is “morally required” … and yes, he works at a California university
(Natural News) A radical Islamic terrorist is currently employed as a college instructor at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). His name is Mohammed Abed, a tenure-track professor of ethics, social and political philosophy, and classical Islamic philosophy, who since at least 2006 has been advocating for the genocide of … [Read More…]
Texting Preferred Over Talking In Person For Millennials and Generation Z
Oct 19, 2017 | 0 |
If the emoji movie wasn’t symbolic enough of today’s youth, perhaps this will rattle your foundation: A new survey finds that 7 in 10 millennials and the younger Gen Z prefer to communicate digitally — mostly by text message — than in person. Researchers at LivePerson, a business solutions provider, polled more than 4,000 young adults under between age 18 and 34 in a handful of Western nations,
helping them discover the priorities and preferences of today’s millennials and Gen Z. Globally, 65 percent of those surveyed indicated they talk to peers more frequently via texting or a mobile, but that number is even higher in English-speaking nations. In both the United States and in the United Kingdom, about 74 percent of millennials and Gen Z communicate digitally more frequently with others.
Top U.S. school district to ‘indoctrinate’ teachers against Israel
Oct 19, 2017 | 0 |
The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest school district in America, is co-sponsoring a “professional development” workshop for K-12 teachers to “Learn about Islam and the Arab World” – and the district has apparently partnered with an anti-Israel group for lessons on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Learning about Islam and the Arab World” is the topic of a two-part course that began Oct. 14 and will continue Oct. 21. It is being led by LAUSD teachers Richard Jessel and Rosa Melendez,
according to a posting on the website of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, or FORUSA. One person, who is Christian, attended the Oct. 14 class and told The Israel Group: “The workshop was nothing more than lectures proclaiming the virtues of Islam, while following the same party lines: All negative information about Islam was labeled as lies, mistranslations, ignorance, prejudice and hoaxes; speakers stated that violent jihad is non-doctrinal, bulls–t; Christians and Jews were always better off living under Muslim rule and anyone who says otherwise is lying.”

New WikiLeaks Dump Will Prove Hillary Clinton’s Ties To Russia
October 19, 2017 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, US 2
Julian Assange is preparing a new WikiLeaks release that proves Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia during the presidential race.
According to an anonymous source, Assange has obtained a file dump taken by the NYPD from Huma Abedin’s laptop, which contains details about numerous crimes committed by Hillary as Secretary of State AND as a presidential candidate.
Infowars.com reports: “This dump will be broad,” says the source. “It will probably be the biggest file dump Wikileaks has ever published in size and when it’s out there, it’s going to leave NO DOUBT on things like, WHO colluded with Russia, WHY it was done, WHAT crimes Hillary (as Secretary of State AND as a presidential candidate) and the elite DNC/GOP/Obama administration, like Lynch, Comey, etc. actually committed.”
Journalist Who Exposed Clinton Foundation Found Dead
October 19, 2017 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, US 3
A world-renowned journalist who exposed corruption within the Clinton Foundation was found dead on Monday after a car bomb exploded with her inside.
Maltese Investigative journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia, was responsible for leaking millions of documents from the Panama Papers, which exposed high-level government corruption from around the world.
Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: Her most recent work revealed that Malta’s prime minister, Joseph Muscat, and two of his closest aides, had connections to offshore companies that linked them to the sale of Maltese passports, and showed that they had received payments from the government of Azerbaijan, according to a report from the Guardian.
California Prepares 9.3 Million Citizens For Imminent 7.0 Earthquake
October 19, 2017 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, US 1
California state officials are holding large scale emergency drills on Thursday to prepare 9.3 million citizens for an ‘imminent’ magnitude 7 or greater earthquake.
Seismologists believe California is well overdue a mega-earthquake along the fault line zone in the Bay Area of Southern California. Experts have warned that the chance of a deadly earthquake striking the area within the next few years is 72%.
Dailystar.co.uk reports: Almost three decades ago, San Francisco’s Bay Area was devastated by a magnitude 6.9 earthquake that killed 67 and caused more than (£3.7billion) $5billion in damages.
Now a freak spate of deadly earthquakes that wreaked havoc in several regions throughout the Pacific has sparked fears California could be next.

A Familiar Pattern Of Lies And Deception With Choreographed Scenes And Permanently Silenced Witnesses Lead To Two Crucial Las Vegas Questions That Remain Unanswered
– How Many ‘Terrorists’, Or ‘Enemies Of America Within’, Are Still On The Loose, And Where Will Be Their Next Onslaught?
I always say that everything is in the patterns. You can look at this fact or that piece of evidence and perhaps learn nothing, but the whole pattern surrounding events like Dallas, OKC, or Vegas makes things pretty clear to those of us with our eyes open. Regarding the 10/1/17 mass shooting in Las Vegas (if it was a mass shooting), the sheriff, FBI, and slimestream media keep changing their story, but they insist, as always, that there was only one “lone gunman,” no wider conspiracy, nothing to see here folks, just move along. There are just a few minor problems.
First, no one has found a motive. No one knows why an elderly White male with no known record of criminal behavior, drug abuse, extremist politics, or of being a Muslim would suddenly “snap” and shoot over 500 mostly innocent people whom he had never met. When people do “snap,” when they have nervous breakdowns, they do not spend weeks accumulating weapons and ammunition and then commit mass murder.

The evidence is mounting that Iran is not only violating the spirit of the no-nukes deal, but that it is also violating its letter. The prologue to the deal explicitly states: "Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons." This reaffirmation has no sunset provision: it is supposed to be forever.
Yet German officials have concluded that Iran has not given up on its goal to produce nuclear weapons that can be mounted on rockets. According to Der Tagesspiegel, a Berlin newspaper:
"Despite the nuclear agreement [reached with world powers in July 2015], Iran has not given up its illegal activities in Germany. The mullah regime also made efforts this year to obtain material from [German] firms for its nuclear program and the construction of missiles, said security sources."

This shop is called Valley Butchers and is located […]

Because, you see, attacks upon “British or Western values” are not hate crimes as far as British authorities are concerned. Hate crimes can only be committed against Muslims, in the form of “offensive language.” A mass murder attack? Pah! It’s the price of “diversity”! (Thanks to Jihad Watch reader Michael for the scans.)
