Last night Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia finally acknowledges that Joe Biden created a border crises. During an interview with CNN Manchin said the following: “It’s a crisis,” - - Oh, it’s a crisis.”
Conservatives are furious that it has taken Manchin so long to recognize that America has a major legal and illegal immigration issue. In the mean time, criminal cartels are getting rich selling children into the sex trade, moving drugs and transporting impoverished humans from Central America to the southern border.
Benny Thomas, Facebook Global Planning Lead: “I would break up Facebook, which means I would make less money probably — but I don’t care. Like that’s what needs to be done. Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Oculus, WhatsApp — they all need to be separate companies. It’s too much power when they’re all one together.”
Thomas: “Most people don’t understand these things and most people don’t think about them — which is why a lot of sh*t goes down because a lot of people aren’t paying attention.”
Thomas: “No king in the history of the world has been the ruler of two billion people, but Mark Zuckerberg is — and he’s 36. That’s too much for a 36-year-old. You should not have power over two billion people. I just think that’s wrong.”
Thomas: “There’s always built-in [algorithmic] bias…Guess what? Human beings wrote that code.”
Thomas: “We’re re-looking at the algorithms, but it’s such a massive and complicated thing that it takes time to fix it. Honestly, I think we need to bite the bullet and do it quicker, but you lose a lot of money as well if you do that.”
Thomas: “AI [Artificial Intelligence] is essentially evolving to become like human intelligence. Then, it’s going to go beyond human intelligence and at that point, humans are expendable.”
Thomas: “One of the things I worked on, which made me happy, was a voter registration drive…This is the kind of thing that you can only do with a company that has the sheer scale and reach of Facebook. We set ourselves a goal of registering four million new people and we went over that target.”
SEOUL (Reuters) - The sister of North Korean leader, Kim Yo Jong, criticised ongoing military drills in South Korea and warned the new U.S. administration that the smell of cordite wafting over the border would not help bring peace, state news reported on Tuesday.
Kim’s statement was the North’s first public message to Washington since President Joe Biden took office in January. It was delivered a day before U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin are due to arrive in Seoul for their first talks with South Korean counterparts. “We take this opportunity to warn the new U.S. administration trying hard to give off powder smell in our land,” Kim said in a statement carried by state news agency KCNA. “If it wants to sleep in peace for coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step.”
