ON THE BUFFET TODAY ~ A LA CASEBOOK CAFE'

Central Intelligence Agency

We've pulled together five documents we think The X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity. And five documents we think his skeptical partner, Agent Dana Scully, could use to prove there is a scientific explanation for UFO sightings.

Take a Peek Into Our “X-Files”

"The CIA declassified hundreds of documents in 1978 detailing the Agency’s investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). The documents date primarily from the late 1940s and 1950s."

"To help navigate the vast amount of data contained in our FOIA UFO collection, we’ve decided to highlight a few documents both skeptics and believers will find interesting. Below you will find five documents we think X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity. We also pulled five documents we think his skeptical partner, Agent Dana Scully, could use to prove there is a scientific explanation for UFO sightings."

"Dr. Herman J. Oberth, a father of rocketry and modern astronautics: "UFOs are conceived and directed by intelligent beings of a very high order, and they are propelled by distorting the gravitational field, converting gravity into usable energy."

"There is no doubt in my mind that these objects are interplanetary craft of some sort. I and my colleagues are confident that they do not originate in our solar system, but we feel that they may use Mars or some other body as sort of a way station. They probably do not originate in our solar system, perhaps not even in our galaxy."

http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc1220.htm

"Dr. Oberth later stated: "We cannot take the credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone. We have been helped."

"When asked by whom, he replied: "The people of other worlds."

"Dr. Wernher von Braun, the first Director of NASA, from July 1960 to February 1970, and one of the world's first and most acclaimed rocket engineers, stated in 1959: "We find ourselves faced by powers which are far stronger than we had hitherto assumed, and whose base is at present unknown to us. More I cannot say at present. We are now engaged in entering into closer contact with those powers, and in six or nine months time it may be possible to speak with some precision on the matter."

To Make AI More Human, Teach It to Chitchat

Tom was discussing the film star Tang Wei with a chatbot named XiaoIce, and the bot was excited: “A goddess! She stole my heart … and then went off and married!” Married who? “Haven’t you heard?” XiaoIce replied. “Tang Wei is engaged to famous Korean director Kim Tae-yong.” (“Romantic comedies,” the bot added with a sigh, “are my favorite.”)

XiaoIce is a massive hit on social networks in Asia. Introduced in 2014 by Microsoft Research and Bing in Beijing, it can answer simple questions, like a stripped-down version of Cortana. But Microsoft engineers also trained XiaoIce on real-life human chatter, making it very, very good at banter. More than 40 million users exchange jokes, compliments, and witticisms with XiaoIce, and their conversations are surprisingly long. With many older bots, people soon noticed their repetitive ploys and lost interest. But XiaoIce tosses out surprises, and chats go on for an average of 23 turns. That’s astonishing for people who know they’re talking to a machine.

It also tells us something about the future of artificial intelligence. We often assume that to be successful, an AI only needs to know things, like Apple’s Siri or IBM’s Jeopardy!-conquering Watson. But XiaoIce suggests that for bots to really thrive in our midst, they need to master the quintessentially human skill of small talk. Shooting the breeze. BS-ing.

“Chitchat is a basic human need,” says Harry Shum, head of Microsoft Technology and Research. It greases the wheels of the workplace. When you ask a colleague to do something, you don’t just bark out an order; you banter for a while. Shum thinks these pleasantries—what linguists call “phatic” communications, like “How ya doin’?”—will help bots integrate into the flow of daily life.

Some research backs this up. When Doron Friedman, head of the Advanced Reality Lab at IDC Herzliya, looked at how users in Second Life interacted with a bot, he found that phatic communications were the second-most-common parts of the conversation (after facts). Another study found that people prefer bots with “personality.” The “junk” DNA is more important, as it were.

You can see this tendency in Slack, the hit messaging system. Programmers often create and share “slackbots” to manage simple tasks like organizing meetings or submitting expense receipts. (You tell the bot, “Hey, I spent $34.23 at a lunch today with our client,” and it squirts the info into the invoicing database.) Sean Rose, a product manager at Slack, thinks this conversational quality is why slackbots are becoming popular. “In many cases, it’s easier and more fluid to work with a bot that sounds like a human,” Rose says. It’s also, as with XiaoIce, more fun. Slack users often spend hours composing wisecracking retorts into their slackbots to surprise their colleagues.

Social chatbots could have a dark side. Some critics worry we’ll prefer these fake relationships to real, messy ones, as in the movie Her. Worse, bots with this kind of social awareness would be very useful for deception. Politicians and despots already try to create fake “grassroots” support online; conversational AI could make these ruses even harder to detect.

That’s legitimate, but I don’t predict an epidemic. I think something subtler will happen: We’ll think more deeply about communication itself, as Alexis Lloyd, creative director of The New York Times’ R&D lab and a bot programmer herself, told me. Much as gamers learn to intuit the physics and hidden mechanics of videogames, talking to bots might force us to ponder the very nature of conversation. Our bots, ourselves.

My Interest in Oak Island is Flagging

I was asked over the weekend how the two guys, the Lagina brothers, could afford this on-going semi-investigation into the Oak Island Treasure. I think part of the answer is History (they used to be the History Channel). I think History is footing quite a bit of the bill, paying the guys for hanging around Oak Island, renting the equipment, and bringing in the distractions to keep the Laginas from getting to the bottom of either the Money Pit or the Bore Hole.

Let me explain.

Over the years I have heard about the astronomical payments made to some of the people participating on these alleged reality shows. The people on Jersey Shore seemed to have become millionaires because of their association with that show. I’ve heard that those on Storage Wars made something like thirty to sixty thousand an episode for that program. Dakota Fred from Gold Rush complained that he wasn’t paid the same rate as Todd Hoffman and some of his crew and that Discovery forked out something like twelve million to fund the bungle in the jungle. Hoffman and crew managed to rake in something like two ounces of gold and a couple of thousand in tiny diamonds during that fiasco.

I could go on in that vein, but all you have to do is take a stroll around the Internet and find some of this information. Given how some of this came out… through court documents, arrests, and lawsuits, if the numbers aren’t accurate then they’re pretty close. The people on these shows are getting paid big bucks to appear on them, and the guys on Gold Rush not only get paid for being there, there is the added bonus of all that gold they mine (and for those who think they’re wrecking the environment, well they showed just what they do to reclaim the land… which, on the show looked very impressive).

As for the diversions on The Curse of Oak Island, that is to keep the show going because if it wasn’t for all that running around the world, the show might have ended in the first season. Clearly History is responsible for the diversions which is not to say that they are planting things to be found such as the Spanish coin that was centuries old but that you could buy on eBay for a few bucks… and they weren’t responsible for the sword that was apparently found in the water off Oak Island whatever that meant. Still, screwing around with the sword that was, what, maybe a hundred years old, took up a great deal of time as did flying to Miami to have the coin evaluated. Too bad there were no coin dealers in Canada or the Northeast who could have told them about it.

We’re again treated to a suggestion that another diving team was going to attempt to get down through the Bore Hole. It just seems to me that this avenue could have been explored long ago and it makes you wonder if they know that there is nothing down there. If there isn’t, then interest falls way off… but if there is, then some of these other activities make sense.

I don’t know about you, but they’re drawn this out to the point where I just don’t care anymore. Oh, sure, if they could up with a huge treasure that would rekindle my interest, but at this point it is flagging rapidly. There had better be some kind of a payoff soon, or I’ll be one of the many tuning out.

Some of 'world's best ever UFO pictures' go online with CIA former top secret files

LOOKING like it is straight out of a 1950s sic-fi B movie, the George Stock UFO is one of the clearest flying saucers ever allegedly captured on film.

By Jon Austin
PUBLISHED: 00:13, Tue, Jan 26, 2016

A series of pictures of the bizarre disc were said to have been snapped by George Stock of Passaic, New Jersey, on July 29, 1952.

Now, the CIA has used one of the pictures, and a series of other historic UFO sightings, to highlight the top secret investigations it carried out in the 1940s and 1950s.

The US intelligence agency, often accused by UFO conspiracy theorists of being involved in a major cover up to hide evidence of alien life from the public, has for some reason chosen to upload some of its formerly classified UFO case files to its website.

Included among the files is that of the George Stock sighting.

Mr Stock was allegedly in his yard with a friend when they say the object appeared in the sky at about 4.30pm.

The story goes that Mr Stock ran into his house to grab his camera, before firing off five photos of the UFO.

Scientific American

A Scientific Theory of Humor

The “entropy” of nonsense words is linked to their funniness, research finds

By Cindi May on January 26, 2016

George W. Bush was not known for his cunning intellect, but he did have a good sense of humor. In a commencement address at Southern Methodist University, he famously told the graduates, “For those of you graduating with high honors and distinctions, I say well done. And as I like to tell the “C” students, you too can be president.” Like Bush, many of us use humor to diffuse difficult situations, mask nervousness, soften criticism, and cope with failure. Humor also serves the role of locksmith in both platonic and romantic social interactions, as it helps us break the ice, gain social acceptance, and initiate romantic overtures. Both men and women tend to seek mates who have a good sense of humor, and we perceive funny people as smarter, more attractive, and more personable.

Given that humor is such a powerful tool for social success, it’s not surprising that scientists have sought to determine the perfect formula for funny. Although there are many competing theories (and no definitive answers) about how humor functions, new research by Chris Westbury, Cyrus Shaoul, Gail Moroschan, and Michael Ranscar suggests that at least one key ingredient can be found in a 200 year-old theory proposed by philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer.

In a nutshell, Schopenhauer suggested that humor derives from an incongruous outcome of an event for which there is a very specific expectation. It is the violation of the specific expectation that creates humor. Consider this pun: “When the clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.” The notion of a clock eating is incongruous with our knowledge of the world, but that alone is insufficient to create humor. The statement, “When the clock is hungry it eats a cheeseburger,” is also incongruous, but “eating a cheeseburger” does not violate any specific expectation about a clock and so the statement is far less amusing. It is the ending, “goes back four seconds,” that elicits a humorous response (albeit an extremely mild one), and it does so because of our understanding of the dual meanings of the words “four” and “seconds,” and our expectation about which of those meanings apply to a clock.

In three experiments, Westbury and colleagues tested the idea that greater incongruity between expectations and outcomes produces a stronger feeling of humor. They did so by examining the humor in non-words, which are strings of letters (e.g., digifin) that form a pronounceable but meaningless unit. Non-words offer a unique advantage in the analysis of the role of expectation-violation in humor, as they are relatively devoid of meaning and thus allow a more pure assessment of influence of incongruency on funniness.

In their first study, Westbury et al. assessed whether there is any consistency in the funniness ratings of non-words. Although specific instances of humor are not always considered universally funny (consider for example popular skits from Saturday Night Live, which tickle many people but also offend others), something is objectively humorous only if there is some consensus about its hilarity. Thus Westbury and colleagues asked nearly 1000 students to rate a total of almost 6000 randomly-generated non-word strings (e.g., artorts) on funniness. The results indicated that these random non-words had reliably consistent humor ratings. If one participant found a given non-word funny, it was likely that others found that same item funny as well, and vice versa.

Westbury et al. next tried to understand what made certain non-words funny (and others not so much). In two additional studies, they directly examined funniness ratings for non-words that varied with respect to entropy, that is, the extent to which the combination of letter strings was incongruous or unexpected. To understand incongruity in non-words, it is important to know that some letters are more likely than others in the English language (e.g., “E” is more frequent than “Q”), and furthermore that some letter combinations are more likely than others. Thus the entropy of a non-word is essentially a measure of the summed probabilities of the individual letters in each string. Non-words with unusual letters and/or combinations have low entropy and offer more surprise. In line with Schopenhauer’s theory, Westbury et al. predicted that items with low entropy would receive the highest humor ratings, as these items were most likely to violate expectations about letters and words.

In one study, participants saw two non-word strings (e.g., quarban, mestead) that appeared simultaneously on a computer screen, and on each trial had to select the non-word that they perceived to be more humorous. Each participant made judgments for 50 pairs. In another study, participants saw non-word strings that appeared one at a time on a computer screen, and had to rate the humor of each item on a scale from “least humorous” to “most humorous.” Participants each rated the humor of 100 non-words. The findings from both of these studies supported the hypothesis that non-word strings with low entropy are perceived as more humorous. Strings with low entropy (e.g., himumma) were reliably chosen as more humorous than paired strings with higher entropy (e.g., tessina), and strings with lower entropy were judged to be funnier than strings with higher entropy. When we expect one thing, even something as simple as letter combinations, and that expectation is violated, we chuckle.

It is important to note, however, that at this point we cannot pinpoint low entropy as the definitive source of humor. While these studies demonstrate that expectation violation increases perceived humor, only one type of entropy (i.e., the probability associated with letter strings) was studied here, and with more complex stimuli other types of expectation violation may contribute to amusement. Even for non-words, many other layers of expectation violation are possible (e.g., how many double letters, such as “zz,” are included in a string, how unusual is the string’s phonology). Indeed, although Westbury et al. intentionally used non-word stimuli because non-words are fairly meaningless, they still found that a handful of the non-word items that were rated most humorous were not necessarily those with lowest entropy, bur rather those that were similar to or contained parts of dirty words (e.g., whong, nip, poo). Of course one could argue that this finding demonstrates a different kind of expectation violation, as taboo words are arguably unexpected in a serious scientific study, and so are likely to be perceived as funny in that context.

Unfortunately, understanding that outcomes that violate expectations tend to be perceived as funny doesn’t necessarily make it easier to say or write something humorous. If creating humor involved a simple scientific calculation, more of us nerdy researchers would be out of the classroom and into the late night comedy circuit (or perhaps we too could be president). Instead, we’ll likely go back to the lab and tweak our non-word generators. Himumma!

GOOD MORNING ALL grin

THIS CIA RELEASE HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS EVERYWHERE!


CIA release thousands of top secret UFO files
By North Devon Journal
Posted: January 26, 2016

UFO hunters are in a frenzy after the CIA released thousands of top secret files from its archives

The files include pictures and details of UFO sightings from across the world and can be viewed on the organisation's website.

Writing on its website, the CIA said: "We've decided to highlight a few documents both sceptics and believers will find interesting.

One report says: "Less than 100 reasonably credible reports remain 'unexplainable' at this time. It is recommended that CIA surveillance be continued.

"It is strongly urged, however, that no reports of CIA interest or concern reach the press or public."

Although the files detail lot of exciting information relating to UFO sightings, there are no documents about close encounters with aliens, or about what is going on at Area 51.

There have been many reports of UFO close encounters in North Devon over the years.

On November 23, 2013, Journal photographer Rob Tibbles photographed a strange object at Fullabrook wind farm and many of the paper's readers reported that they saw a bright object in the skies around the same time, which was a similar shape to the one in the photo.

In the days running up the closure of the Ministry of Defence's UFO desk in 2009 it received several reports of encounters with mysterious flying objects in the area, such as balls of fire and hovering red lights.

Indian Fighter Jets Just ‘Shot Down A UFO’
28 January 2016

The Indian Air Force said that its fighter jets had shot down a UFO this week over the northern state of Rajasthan.

Fighter jets were scrambled after the mysterious ‘balloon-shaped’ object was detected on IAF radar - and UFO fans have gone wild after the IAF were strangely silent after the incident.

Scott C Waring of UFO Sightings Daily says, ‘Its not everyday a UFO gets shot down. This one is thought to be a balloon with a bomb tied to it. It looks like a giant cloud orb to me. Sometimes if they are struck by lightning, they can malfunction and fall to the earth.

‘This one…disintegrated except for two sharp finger size metal objects. Its was a enough of a threat that they called out fighter jets to shoot it down. At 9 feet in diameter (3 meters) it would be hard not to see.’

Other observers suggest that the object may have been a weather balloon.

A statement from the Indian Air Force said that the ‘balloon-shaped’ UFO was picked up by radar on Tuesday, and a Sukhoi Su-30 MKI fighter jet was scrambled to intercept it.

‘Between 10.30 and 11 am today an unidentified balloon-shaped object was picked up by the Indian Air Force (IAF) radar,’ an official statement said..

‘An IAF fighter was launched, which intercepted the object and brought it down. Materials have been retrieved and further investigation is ongoing.’

summary..hands in air..but reached in pocket..where he had a gun..

At 26 minutes and 20 seconds the video shows Finicum shot to death. Although the footage was taken from the air, it plainly show Finicum with his hands up. He then appears to reach inside his jacket and is shot by two OSP officers.

From a write-up on the video posted by Disinfo:

Agents and troopers on scene had information that Finicum and others would be armed. On at least two occasions, Finicum reaches his right hand toward a pocket on the left inside portion of his jacket. He did have a loaded 9 mm semi-automatic handgun in that pocket.

Previous reports stated Finicum charged the officers. This is clearly not the case. It was also reported he was on the ground and this is also not true.

A full write-up can be found here.

This private jet would get you from London to New York in 11 minutes

The Antipode would travel at 24 times the speed of sound and could get from New York to Sydney in half an hour

By Lauren Davidson

8:45AM GMT 29 Jan 2016

But a new design for a luxury business jet could get you from London to New York in 11 minutes – and from New York to Sydney in half an hour.

The Antipode is a 10-seater aircraft that would be able to travel at 12,427 miles per hour.

The concept is classed as Mach 24 – which means it travels 24 times faster than the speed of sound, 12 times faster than Concorde and one Mach number below re-entry speed.
