    1. Jordan Nicholas Sukut's Lionsberg Wiki has approximately 1.3M words which could be turned into a NeoBook. He calls it a "wiki book".


    1. Die Desinformation zur globalen Erhitzung hat sich von der Klimaleugnung hin zum Säen von Zweifeln an möglichen Lösungen verschoben. Einer neuer Studie zufolge sind wichtige Strategien auf Youdas Tube das Herunterspielen der negativen Konsequenzen, Erzeugen von Misstrauen in die Klimaforschung und vor allem die Behauptung, dass vorhandene technische Lösungen nicht praktikabel sind. Außerdem werden Verschwörungstheorien wie die vom Grand Reset bemüht. https://www.repubblica.it/green-and-blue/2024/01/17/news/negazionismo_climatico_youtube-421894897/

    1. The story starts with the creation of the world, and ends with Moses dying on the wrong side of the Jordan and being buried in an unmarked grave.

      "Wrong side of the Jordan" almost has the flavor of a biblical version of "the wrong side of the tracks".

    1. "But there's a very famous theorem in topology called the Jordan curve theorem. You have a plane and on it a simple curve that doesn't intersect and closes—in other words, a loop. There's an inside and an outside to the loop." As Riehl draws this, it seems obvious enough, but here's the problem: No matter how much your intuition tells you that there must be an inside and an outside, it's very hard to prove mathematically that this holds true for any loop that can be drawn.

      How does one concretely define "inside" and "outside"? This definition is part of the missing space between the intuition and the mathematical proof.

    1. In Jordanien leidet die Landwirtschaft im Jordan-Tal unter Wassermangel, der durch die Ableitung von Wasser und durch die Veränderungen des Klimas immer größer wird. Der Fluss Jordan führt nur noch 10% seiner ursprünglichen Menge. Reportage der taz zu den Folgen der Klimakrise in Jordanien und zu unterschiedlichen, oft experimentellen und wissenschaftlich begleiteten Versuchen der Klimaanpassung. https://taz.de/Duerre-in-Jordanien/!5944640/

    1. Eine neue Studie zeigt, das plötzliche Dürren, sogenannte flash droughts, in den vergangenen 20 Jahren zugenommen haben. Damit erhöht sich nicht nur die Zahl der Dürren, sondern auch ihr Charakter. Vor allem in den Tropen verdunstet in kurzer Zeit sehr viel Wasser aus dem Boden. Die Studie ergibt auch, dass sich dieser Prozess selbst bei einer moderaten weiteren Erhitzung der Erde fortsetzen wird. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/04/13/climate/flash-drought-warming.html

    1. Prof. Barkai: "In light of previous studies, our team proposed an original hypothesis that links the two questions: We think that large animals went extinct due to overhunting by humans, and that the change in diet and the need to hunt progressively smaller animals may have propelled the changes in humankind. In this study we tested our hypotheses in light of data from excavations in the Southern Levant covering several human species over a period of 1.5 million years." Jacob Dembitzer adds: "We considered the Southern Levant (Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Southwest Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon) to be an 'archaeological laboratory' due to the density and continuity of prehistoric findings covering such a long period of time over a relatively small area -- a unique database unavailable anywhere else in the world. Excavations, which began 150 years ago, have produced evidence for the presence of humans, beginning with Homo erectus who arrived 1.5 million years ago, through the neandertals who lived here from an unknown time until they disappeared about 45,000 years ago, to modern humans (namely, ourselves) who came from Africa in several waves, starting around 180,000 years ago."

      The different hominin species studied in this well defined, archeologically rich region were Homo Erectus, Neandertals and Modern Humans..

    1. the memory castle that jordan peter peterson described i think it has potentially a risk of inducing 00:58:28 confirmation bias

      Jordan Peterson apparently has described using a memory palace (castle?) he used with 12 spaces for writing his book (presumably 12 Rules for life?).

    1. The language for writing React. Reason's creator also created ReactJS, whose first prototypes were written in SML, a distant cousin of OCaml. We've transcribed ReactML into ReactJS for wide adoption. A few years later, we're now iterating on the future of ReactJS through ReasonReact.
    1. Lost?

      The story starts off very interesting. The writer speaks about their current situation which is being isolated in homes because of high concentrations of carbon monoxide in the air. She speaks about how Susan’s daily activities-practicing for the marching band and playing flag football- have been halted due to this incident; however, the writer does not speak about how it has reached that stage of severe air pollution. Although the writer slowly speaks about it, a brief summary of it at the beginning would clear up my uncertainty.


      Just out of curiosity, who created these ibots? Did this carbon monoxide poisoning happen suddenly or gradually? Initially when the carbon monoxide poisoning happened, what were their main way of surviving? I also found it interesting how they would stay indoors and make the ibots perform their daily outdoor activities. Since the ibots are doing their outdoor activities, is it that they can control their own personal ibot or does each family receive only one ibot?


      I enjoyed reading this story because it talks about the future and the use of technology to help mankind. The use of dialogue in this story allowed me to visualize the story in my mind. Furthermore, the plot itself is very interesting, creating a feeling of wanting to read and know more. I enjoyed how the story got more and more intense which spiked up my curiosity and need to know more!

      I found the piece engaging, although there were a few points I found confusing. In terms of cohesiveness, the writer was able to put the pieces together, which allowed for better understanding; however, the ending ended abruptly. As a result, it felt as if something was missing. I think providing more information towards the end may assist the reader in understanding the story a bit more. All in all, I enjoyed reading the writer’s story!

    1. Here in the Jordanian capital, the 6,000 seats of a 2nd-century Roman amphitheater stand testament to the significance of what was then known as Philadelphia, or “the city of brotherly love.”

      So cool to have a picture in front of this amphitheater!

    1. In many ways, Peterson is an old-fashioned conservative who mourns the decline of religious faith and the traditional family, but he uses of-the-moment tactics. His YouTube gospel resonates with young white men who feel alienated by the jargon of social-justice discourse and crave an empowering theory of the world in which they are not the designated oppressors. Many are intellectually curious. On Amazon, Peterson’s readers seek out his favourite thinkers: Dostoevsky, Nietzsche, Solzhenitsyn, Jung.

      The "designated oppressors... crave an empowering theory of the world" wherein "they are not the designated oppressors." Definitely a major challenge currently.

    1. Who is Jordan Peterson, favorite figure of the alt-right

      Except alt-right do not like JP. Lying news outlets have no dignity or integrity. That is why no one watches them on youtube. Old media is on its way out. Truth is the future.
