  6. Yup, the truth is - people are stupid! As you said - even highly trained professional pilots will mishandle automation to (potentially) serious implications. This idea of unleashing complicated technical systems on the untrained public and hoping for a "good" outcome is ludicrious. A few years ago I was shopping for new vehicle. This was when the new collision avoidance systems were first being introduced. I went from dealership to dealership looking for information about how the systems (front collision detection, lane change warning systems, etc) worked and could not find out if they were RADAR, SONAR, LASER, magnetic interference). The salespeople did. not. know. how the systems worked or what the limitations were and the companies were not providing any information. The "front collision system" detected a potential collision. Period. At what speed or distance or closure rate the "system" detected a potential collision was not disclosed. How the system might fail, how to detect a failure or what to do to prevent/manage/control a failure - no information. I'm a technically sophisticated guy and I couldn't figure out the systems. Is it any wonder that the average soccer mom or random dude can't figure them out? We hear about people all the time who follow their GPS system's commands to drive into a lake or off a cliff - a system that's 99.9% accurate still results in 1 out of 1000 being mislead. Interestingly enough after posting this I happened to watched the movie First Man which prompted me to research the meaning of code "1202" and lead me to this article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/lanceeliot/2019/07/16/apollo-11s-infamous-landing-error-code-1202-offers-earthly-lessons-for-self-driving-cars/#6e3b403834bc

  8. Yesterday
  9. Good evening, here's how the week in Canadian politics is shaping up I hope you've all had enjoyable and maybe festive weekends. While it may seem like MPs just came back, this week is the last that the Commons is scheduled to sit until the New Year so it's looking jam-packed. The week ahead On Monday, debate in reply to the speech from the throne will continue, before the House opens up into what’s called a "committee of the whole" to study some money matters. Specifically, the House will consider the supplementary estimates: A spending bill granting the government any additional funds, called "supply," to get through to the new quarter. A committee of the whole is happening because of the written-in-House-rules deadline of Dec. 10 for these estimates to be passed, and this way allows the estimates to move through all usual legislative stages in one concise sitting. It will come to a vote, expected on Tuesday, and that will be the first confidence vote of this government. Any votes that have to do with money, such as the federal budget or the estimates, are traditionally considered confidence votes. Don't expect the government to fall on this vote though, since NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh indicated last week that he doesn't see voting down supply bills as the way to send a message about his party’s priorities, although he remains lukewarm on the throne speech. Over in the Senate, the National Finance Committee is set to hold two meetings also considering the same package of supplementary estimates. Tuesday will be the first opposition day of the Parliament. Opposition days are when an opposition party gets to present a motion for the House to debate and eventually vote on, setting the agenda in the Commons for the day. Conservative House Leader Candice Bergen told CTVNews.ca that it'll likely focus on "uniting the country," and the party has since put on notice several potential options that touch on this theme. Typically the federal cabinet meets on Tuesdays and all eyes are on the lookout for the new mandate letters for the reconfigured ministerial roster that was unveiled a few weeks back. Also on Tuesday, Trudeau is set to sit down with Alberta Premier Jason Kenney in Ottawa, alongside eight of Kenney's cabinet ministers. Then from Wednesday to Friday the House is scheduled to continue debating the throne speech. During these sessions, many of the 98 newly-elected rookie MPs will get the chance to deliver their first speech in the Commons. Wednesday the various party caucuses will also meet. According to Government House Leader Pablo Rodriguez on CTV's Question Period, don't expect the confidence vote on the throne speech to happen until sometime in 2020 when MPs return, right now set to be the week of Jan. 27. Not to be missed In the latest episode of Trend Line, Pollster Nik Nanos and Michael Stittle break down the throne speech and take a look at what the preferred PM numbers say about Andrew Scheer's precarious position as the leader of the Conservative party. It was the hot-mic conversation heard around the world, and now it's an SNL skit that portrays Trudeau and other world leaders as the cool kids teasing U.S. President Donald Trump. And, if you didn’t read this piece last week, you should: A 'data dump' by an anonymous anti-fascist activist has exposed the world to the inner workings of one of the most prolific neo-Nazi forums in recent history, the now-defunct Iron March website. On notice This is typically the space where I let you know what's on the agenda at committees this week, but House of Commons committees have not yet been set up, and likely won't be until the New Year. As of earlier this week, the negotiations as to the makeup of committees, like how many MPs from each party there will be, are still underway. Committees are going to be must-watch places for a lot of the parliamentary drama this session, as the opposition parties will now hold the majority of seats and will be able to steer the agenda in ways they couldn't in the last parliament. "That dynamic means that the opposition gets to set the agenda of the studies of the special inquiries into whatever corruption is going on and so on, where they can create a lot of mischief," Peter Van Loan, a former Conservative House leader, told CTVNews.ca a few weeks ago. Van Loan speculated that the breakdown of seats around the committee table might look something like: five Liberals, four Conservatives, one Bloc Quebecois MP and one NDP MP. The distribution is intended to be proportional to the number of seats each party has.

  25. I think that it wasn't so much to break the elite, it was to break the constitution. The path he is heading down is opening the doors for a future U.S. king. That aside, I think that when it comes to Trump's re-election, the biggest indicator of what is going to happen is the U.K. election next week. The youth vote is waking up, and in England, as in the U.S. there is a huge cohort that are coming up to their first election. They aren't interested in the 'old ways' either. As the generation that grew up with active shooter drills, they want gun control. As the generation that is entering the work world without the opportunities afforded to them that previous generations had, they want it changed. As Trump has clearly shown, deficits and debt mean nothing. They will vote for what is good for them. It will be interesting. https://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/surge-voters-sparks-talk-uk-election-youthquake-67380393
