BRINKSMANSHIP

Who Will Blink First - Iran or Israel?

Iran seized a commercial ship with links to Israel on Saturday as it passed through the Strait of Hormuz.

The MSC Aries was boarded by Iranian special forces about 50 miles (80km) off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, a statement from MSC said.

: "Students in Texas taking their state-mandated exams this week are being used as guinea pigs for a new artificial intelligence-powered scoring system set to replace a majority of human graders in the region.

The Texas Tribune reports an “automated scoring engine” that utilizes natural language processing — the technology that enables chatbots like OpenAI’s ChatGPT to understand and communicate with users — is being rolled out by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to grade open-ended questions on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) exams. The agency is expecting the system to save $15–20 million per year by reducing the need for temporary human scorers, with plans to hire under 2,000 graders this year compared to the 6,000 required in 2023.

“We wanted to keep as many constructed open-ended responses as we can, but they take an incredible amount of time to score.”" https://www.theverge.com/2024/4/10/24126206/texas-staar-exam-graders-ai-automated-scoring-engine

🇺🇦 ISW continues to assess that the US will not need to send large security assistance packages to indefinitely if Ukraine can sufficiently expand its defensive industrial capacity, but the West’s provision of air defense systems and missiles to Ukraine is crucial for Ukraine’s ability to defend its energy infrastructure and its developing defense industry against Russian strikes.

Or to distract from Gaza.

I suspect Israel attacked the Iranian embassy specifically to draw the US into a war.

Just finished #AlexGarland and #A24’s #CivilWar film.

It’s fantastic. Excellent. Completely apolitical (unless “authoritarianism is bad” counts as political messaging).

Anyone who wants to see a second civil war in the #USA needs to see this movie.

: "U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has confirmed that Russian government-backed hackers stole emails from several U.S. federal agencies as a result of an ongoing cyberattack at Microsoft.

In a statement published Thursday, the U.S. cyber agency said the cyberattack, which Microsoft initially disclosed in January, allowed the hackers to steal federal government emails “through a successful compromise of Microsoft corporate email accounts.”

The hackers, which Microsoft calls “Midnight Blizzard,” also known as APT29, are widely believed to work for Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service, or SVR.

“Midnight Blizzard’s successful compromise of Microsoft corporate email accounts and the exfiltration of correspondence between agencies and Microsoft presents a grave and unacceptable risk to agencies,” said CISA." https://techcrunch.com/2024/04/11/us-cisa-russia-apt-29-government-email-theft-microsoft/

You guys still didn’t get it. It’s not a choice between supporting or not supporting Ukraine.

It’s a choice between fighting Russia yourself or with money. And it’s not indefinite, if Ukraine loses you will have to fight.

Not because you want to. But because there’s only one kind of invitation you cannot say no to: “let’s go outside”.

France is smart: they are already discussing reinstating general military service. They are preparing. You should too. 1/2

so many people in #EU and #USA are more interested in #Palestine because they think that there #Israel (a Western country) is in control, and so, they think, they can control it

the situation in #Ukraine is outside their "first-world" worldview

they cannot fathom, and the cannot tell to themselves, that a non-"Western" country has its own agency and independent goals, that these motives are imperialistic and that they are willing to wage war to achieve them

@mykhaylo @petit_suisse @VoordeMus

from this "first-world" worldview (that the West/USA is always in control), also comes the idea that was "provoked" and that the Ukrainian war is a proxy war of the or .

which is the most stupid idea: just look at how much hesitant European/Western countries are to provide military aid to : the Western countries didn't want a war with Russia, they wanted to continue to trade peacefully with it.
