Babe, why are you taking so long to get ready?

UC Berkeley’s campus is in turmoil. It’s unlike anything in recent memory. (www.politico.com)

Liberal members of the state’s legislative Jewish caucus have publicly castigated UC Berkeley for its handling of hostility toward Jewish students and professors amid the war. They’re pushing state laws targeting antisemitism in response to the events — including a violent protest of an Israeli speaker in late February...

The best of life happens after 25. I know it feels impossibly far, but yes, it gets better, and yes, you have made it through the worst of it. It gets even better after 30 by the way.

Please, if you have a moment of clarity, go to a hospital and get checked in. I know that a mental health hold is some miserable bullshit, but it can save your life. Don’t buy a gun. Just don’t do it. Stay home.

Learn from us. I’m in Texas and it is really horrifying. Do not let them get a foothold or they will trample your basic freedoms. Now that they had “defeated” legal abortion, they are coming for contraception, just as many of us predicted they would.

People are dying.

This raises some interesting questions. The premise of these scientists is that consciousness can be quantified empirically. Yet many of the tests described in this article can be passed by machines. Does that mean that the scientists who signed the declaration consider some smart devices to demonstrate consciousness? And what are the implications?

There is no way I’m clicking on that link

Seems like a strong argument that consciousness cannot be determined by testing behaviors.

Is emergent intelligence the scientific definition of consciousness? The article seems to be describing something else.

I agree with this. I’ve read the statement that the scientists wrote and I honestly could not figure out what they are trying to say. I just don’t see how any of the tests they reference would challenge the idea that we don’t know how to define or test consciousness.

Sentience is not necessarily the same thing but its in a similar place. It may be possible to test depending on the definition.

Am I the only one here bothered by that weird improper hyphenation?

And that, folks, is the story of Florida.

*braces for down votes and possible ban* (pawb.social)

I’ve been seeing a worrying number of these people on Lemmy lately, sharing enlightened takes including but not limited to “voting for Biden is tantamount to fascism” and “the concept of an assigned gender, or even an assigned name, at birth is transphobic” and none of them seem to be interested in reading more than...

Why shit on people who want to make the world better just because they care to even talk about trying?

I almost think that’s the intent of the original post. Lots of people are doing important justice work, but in some circles they are treated like traitors to the cause if they aren’t threatening class warfare.

This ass hat is a complete troll. He’s like Israel’s Lauren Boebert. Both need to go.

You are aware that Hamas has continued armed fighting, including firing rockets at civilians since October 7, right? Just because Oct. 7 was by far the worse, that doesn’t mean they laid down their arms and surrendered.

I think Hamas should surrender and release the hostages. I don’t see another realistic way to end the war at this point.

That’s why I use tabliss - plus all the other customization and config.

This is why we should be making laws around likeness rights. If you damage somebody by publicly using their name to spread falsehoods, that’s defamation or libel. But, if you produce an image or video of their likeness instead of using their name, there’s no legal recourse. Makes no sense this day in age

What is the story behind this image??

Well, ask a silly question I guess. Thanks 🤣

It looks like they are shifting the funds into a leadership program. I’m not exactly sure what that means

I think it means they are not awarding any new scholarships in the future. I don’t think that it nullifies any existing awards. It’s been awarded to something like 900 African American students over the years, most of whom would not have been able to attend otherwise.
