An so it passed that After The Evil Ones Removed all the White Hairs..There was plenty in the land...And they rejoiced and made merry. And we stood by But that soon too was not enough ..Then they called after the Grey Hairs.from each house..with promise of great reward and youth..and a great feast with every cats delight..even the elect were fooled..many went in..but none returned And we stood by
rejoiced again with great meowing..but it was a fortnight and a season And we stood by..
And then THEY came for Us

The tech giant’s computer-made system known as NASNet is able to identify objects, such as people and cars, in photos and videos.
According to studies, the Google “brain” can pick out these objects with a 82.7% accuracy rate – something the company says is better than any man-made AI system.
And the AI breakthrough will have a huge impact on the entire field.
Experts have said the findings show automation is the key to creating the most accurate AI systems – meaning Artificial Intelligence would actually create more AI. NASNet itself was actually created earlier this year AutoML, which is an AI system capable of creating more learning programmes.
The Google Brain team, which developed the mother system AutoML, said: “We hope that the larger machine learning community will be able to build on these models to address multitudes of computer vision problems we have not yet imagined.”
But ethical concerns have been raised about the invention of such powerful machines.
Tech site Futurism reported: “What if AutoML creates systems so fast that society can't keep up? It's not very difficult to see how NASNet could be employed in automated surveillance systems in the near future, perhaps sooner than regulations could be put in place to control such systems.”
But Ray Kurzweil, Google’s engineering director, said AI will “enhance” the world.
He said: “Technology has always been a double-edged sword – fire kept us warm, cooked our food and burned down our houses.
“World War 2 – 50 million people died, and that was certainly exacerbated by the power of technology at that time.
“My view is not that AI is going to displace us. It’s going to enhance us. It does already.”

Good morning lovely people.
Experimental drug blocks toxic ion flow linked to Alzheimer’s disease
An international team of researchers has shown that a new small-molecule drug can restore brain function and memory in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease. The drug works by stopping toxic ion flow in the brain that is known to trigger nerve cell death. Scientists envision that this drug could be used to treat Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and ALS. "This is the first drug molecule that can regulate memory loss by directly blocking ions from leaking through nerve cell membranes," said Ratnesh Lal, a professor of bioengineering at the University of California San Diego and co-senior author of the study.
Various studies have linked Alzheimer's disease to the accumulation of two particular proteins in the brain called amyloid-beta and tau. One theory is that these protein clusters create pores in nerve cell membranes that allow ions to travel in and out uncontrollably. This would alter ion levels inside the cells and in turn trigger neuronal dysfunction and cell death.
The new drug, a small molecule called anle138b, blocks these pores from moving ions in and out of nerve cells. Anle138b attaches to both amyloid-beta and tau protein clusters and deactivates the pores created by these clusters.
Researchers administered anle138b to mice with a genetic predisposition for developing an Alzheimer's-like condition. The mice had symptoms such as abnormal brain function, impaired memory and high levels of either amyloid-beta or tau proteins in the brain. Treatment with anle138b normalized brain activity and improved learning ability in mice.
The study was led by the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, the University Medical Center Göttingen, the Braunschweig University of Technology, the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Center for Nanoscale Microscopy and Molecular Physiology of the Brain in Göttingen, Germany, and the University of California San Diego. Researchers published their findings on Dec. 5 in EMBO Molecular Medicine.
Christian Griesinger, a professor at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry and co-senior author of the study, noted, "The drug is able to reach the brain when taken orally. Therefore, it is easy to administer, and we are currently performing toxicology studies to eventually be able to apply anle138b to humans."
The team cautions that since the drug has so far only been tested in mice, it is unclear how well it would perform in humans. "I would like to emphasize that none of the current animal models fully recapitulate the symptoms seen in Alzheimer's patients. Thus, care has to be taken when interpreting such data. However, our study offers evidence that anle138b has potential for neuroprotection," said André Fischer, a senior researcher at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and the University Medical Center Göttingen, who is also a co-senior author of the study.
While collaborators in Germany will be pursuing clinical studies in human patients with neurodegenerative diseases, Lal and his research group at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering are particularly interested in testing anle138b on a variety of other diseases that are linked to toxic ion flow caused by amyloid proteins, including diabetes, tuberculosis and certain types of cancer. Lal's group has performed extensive research on amyloid ion channels and their roles in these diseases. "Blocking the ion leakiness of amyloid channels using anle138b could be an effective therapy for various diseases," Lal said.
Lal serves as co-director for the Center of Excellence for Nanomedicine and Engineering, a subcenter of the Institute of Engineering in Medicine at UC San Diego. His research group will also work on targeted delivery of the drug using their patent pending "nanobowls," which are magnetically guided nanoparticles that can be packed with drugs and diagnostic molecules, deliver them to particular sites in the body and release them on demand. Future studies will focus on using these nanobowls to deliver anle138b to the brain, as well as other diseased tissues and organs affected by toxic amyloid-beta ion channels.
This work was supported in part by the National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health (grant AG028709).
Paper title: "The diphenylpyrazole compound anle138b blocks Aβ channels and rescues disease phenotypes in a mouse model for amyloid pathology."

SECRET SPACE PROGRAM? Is this proof of the 'US TR-3B UFO built with ALIEN technology?’
ALLEGED dark web video footage of a legendary UFO has surfaced, sending conspiracy theorists into overdrive.
By Jon Austin PUBLISHED: 09:55, Tue, Dec 5, 2017 | UPDATED: 10:08, Tue, Dec 5, 2017
Viewers of the video, which is being shared on UFO websites, claim it could be a mysterious TR-3B, which is an alleged secret spy craft developed using alien technology. The TR-3B is alleged by conspiracy theorists to be a secret "black project" spy craft of the US Government that can be flown into space.
The allegations are that these crafts are created at top-secret military bases like Area 51 in Nevada, by reverse engineering alien technology.
Others claim they are actual UFOs flown by aliens visiting Earth.
Various pictures and videos have flooded the web in recent years claiming to have captured the top-secret craft.
The latest clip of a strange object in the night has been branded "the best evidence ever of a TR-3B, after allegedly being filmed in the sky over an undisclosed part of Russia.
In a video entitled "A TR-3B type UFO was filmed in Russia - Best evidence ever", which has been shared by Belgian YouTube channel UFO Today, three lights are seen moving extremely slowly across the camera’s view.
They appear to change from red to yellow throughout.
Tim Beckers, who runs UFO Today, claimed the "slow speed of the craft" means it could not have been made with any known technology used for standard air craft. However, it has no emerged they may be nothing more than standard military flares.
Mr Beckers had said: “This footage was making headlines in underground UFO groups after it was posted on the dark web.
“The object is moving at a very slow pace, too slow to be classic airplane.
“The speed at which this object was moving is physically impossible for any airplane build by mankind.
"Reports generally describe this class of UFOs as large, silent, black triangular objects hovering or slowly cruising at low altitudes over cities and highways.
"Sightings usually take place at night.
"These objects are often described as having pulsing coloured lights that appear at each corner of the triangle." More than 23,000 people saw the footage, with many offering their views.
One viewer posted on YouTube: "And people say they aren't real."
Others were not convinced it showed a TR-3B, with some adding it could just be a drone.
Another investigator said it was just military flares and the sighting had previously been debunked.
One poster added: “TR-3B’s have a light in the middle. This one did not.”
A third wrote: “Suspiciously poor quality.”
British UFO investigator Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said: "At night it is hard to gauge the distance and size of an object or lights, which in turn makes it difficult to judge their speed.
"As this seems to be flying slower than an aircraft I'd say it is a drone with lights on it.
"Drones can hover and move slowly, with little noise. "So I don't regard this video as evidence for ETs visiting us."
Italian Scott Brando runs the debunking website ufoofinterest.org.
He looked at the case, and said the footage had previously surface and had been explained away at the time.
He told Express.co.uk: "It was a launch of cluster flares during military exercises over Russia. "This is an old explained case being re-shared."

Good morning lovely UFOCasebookers
Found: A Millipede With 6 Colorways and a Cyanide Coating A bright, shining example of “predator education.”
by Vittoria Traverso December 05, 2017
Paul Marek, an entomologist at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech, is a serial discoverer of new arthropods—from a black dwarf tarantula that bears his name to the world’s leggiest known creature (as many as 750 wiggling limbs). And he has just helped identify yet another fascinating new invertebrate.
Apheloria polychroma is a millipede, about the size of your thumb, that was found crawling around the forest floor of southwest Virginia’s Cumberland Mountains. There are a few things that make the little wriggler stand out. First, it comes in more hues than any other known millipede species—a total of six different colorways, which is why Marek and fellow entomologists Jackson Means and Derek Hennen named it “polychroma.” And second, it is covered in cyanide—yes, that cyanide—to deter avian predators.
The color and toxicity are linked, as they are for a number of brightly colored species, from snakes to frogs to insects, as a signal to predators to stay away. So a variety of other millipedes copy its various styles of coloration. This common form of flattery even has a name: Müllerian mimicry, after German naturalist Fritz Müller, who first proposed the theory in 1878 after observing the way tropical butterflies in Brazil’s Amazonian rain forest “may evolve a similar appearance so as to share the costs of predator education.”
Marek, who runs the only millipede lab in the United States, hopes that documenting such new species will spare them the sad fate of “anonymous extinction,” when species disappear before we even know they exist. “It is imperative to describe and catalog these species so that we know what role they play in the ecosystem—and what impact we are having on them,” the entomologist said in a release. “This region [Virginia] is ripe with biodiversity and is an excellent living laboratory to do this work.”
This gesture has three main positions: hands clenched in front of the face, hands clenched resting on the desk or lap and, while standing, hands clenched over the lower abdomen.
When a person does this gesture, they are exercising some sort of 'self-restraint'. They are symbolically 'clenching' themselves back and withholding a negative reaction, usually anxiety or frustration. The higher the person clenches his hands whilst standing, the more negative he is feeling.
This gesture is usually done when a person feels that they are failing to convince the other person or are anxious about what they saying or hearing.
While talking to a person holding this gesture, you should try moving the conversation in a different direction or ask questions so that you can, if not understand, at least break the negative attitude of the person.
