Jeopardy champion WATSON appointed head of National Academy of Blog Science

Jeopardy champion WATSON--the computer program that earlier this year decisively beat the two all-time human champions of America's favorite game show--has a new challenge. A modified version of WATSON has been appointed to direct a major new scientific organization, the White House announced today. The WATSON spin-off, dubbed HOLMES (short for Highly Objective Lore Machine for Examining Science), will head the newly created National Academy of Blog Science (NABS). The NABS, created in legislation passed by Congress last week, will replace the prestigious National Academy of Sciences (NAS) as the premier scientific advisory organization in charge of advising Congress on scientific matters. "The creation of the National Academy of Blog Science is a huge step forward for America's businesses to help them become more competitive and create jobs," said U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Bayinghound, who pushed the legislation through Congress.



Figure 1. HOLMES' predecessor, WATSON, clobbering the two all-time Jeopardy champions in a match earlier this year.

Dr. Hal N. Thousand, chief scientist for the Very Competitive Free Enterprise Institute (VCFEI), the pro-business think tank that crafted the legislation to create the NABS, lauded the choice of HOLMES to head the new advisory body. "The old National Academy of Sciences used archaic methods to determine the best science, relying exclusively on peer-reviewed publications. In the peer-review system, papers undergo a lengthy review process by multiple experts in the field, followed by revisions, followed by further review, finally ending in rejection or publication in a prestigious scientific journal. Ignored in the process is the tremendous amount of excellent non-peer-reviewed science published in blogs and in industry publications. HOLMES, once interfaced with the Internet, has the capability to search through all these relevant scientific works and rank the best science with a percentage probability of correctness--just like WATSON did during the Jeopardy championships. If there are popular blogs or a large body of corporate science challenging peer-reviewed scientific findings as being too uncertain, HOLMES will lower the probability of the peer-reviewed scientific result being correct. Thus, the advice given by NABS to Congress will be far more reasonable, taking in a wider range of opinions than those previously considered by the outdated National Academy of Sciences. Grant-based anti-industry "science" developed in ivory towers will no longer be accepted unquestioningly at the cost of jobs. The American tax payer can't afford it. This is the way a scientific advisory body should behave, since any scientific results that hurt corporate profits and thus jobs should be required to be virtually certain. Too often, this country has been misled by science harmful to American business interests, pushed by elitist, alarmist, money-grubbing scientists, out to pad their research grants by falsely crying wolf. It's time to cast down the high priests of this America-hating eco-religion, and let HOLMES, who is incapable of bias, make the decisions on what is the best science."

Dr. Frank Poole, spokesman for the Coalition of Environmental Organizations Against Insanity, who lobbied fervently against the new National Academy of Blog Science, commented: "It is ludicrous to put a computer that thought Toronto was a city in the U.S. during Final Jeopardy in charge of the world's most important scientific advisory body. WATSON also thought Wonder Woman was the first woman in space. This does not bode well for the future of American policy to be based on the best science."

Dr. Thousand countered that the new HOLMES computer would be unlike its predecessor, WATSON. "In the coming months, under HOLMES' new clear vision of science fact, the people will see the peer-review system of science for the corrupt farce that it is, and demand that it be abolished. We are already crafting new legislation to remove all government funding for scientific research that HOLMES judges to be anti-corporate, including all money for climate change research and for the Environmental Protection Agency. That kind of research must be done by concerned citizen-bloggers and by the corporations who might be affected by the scientific findings. Science in this country must be done the democratic way--every citizen will be able to weigh in on their favorite blog site and vote for what they think is the best science. HOLMES, with the aid of an adaptive scientific truth algorithm we are developing, will be able to use the will of the people and the best corporate and blog science to advise Congress on scientific matters, and a brave new world of science-based policy will be born."

April Fools! (I hope)

Thanks Skye. Please keep posting those.

The wunderground forecast for downtown Tokyo would suggest that we will see an adverse wind shift for Monday and Tuesday. Swings around 180 degrees during the course of Sunday night.

Edit: the Wunderground forecasts for Tokyo have been doing a fairly good job of predicting winds out a few days. Thus far, we have not seen strong NNE winds. That may only be a matter of time, and should it happen the contaminated area may spread further south and west than it has to this point. The bigger that area, the more concern there will be over surface contamination working its way into the water table.

India also released their census figures last week.


India's population was 22 million above the 'middle' estimate. Interesting. 1.211 billion people.

Quoting TomTaylor:

Yea, that's one uncertain future for the world's second most populated country.

For those uncertain about where India's rivers are and where the majority of the populations are in India:



The Indus runs mostly through Pakistan, while the Ganges runs through the northern section of India and enters the Indian Ocean in Bangladesh.




From the population density map it's quite obvious that a large portion of India's population is settled along the Ganges river.

New radioactivity leak at Fukushima nuclear plant: Toxic water found spilling into Pacific

By Mail On Sunday Reporter
Last updated at 8:48 PM on 2nd April 2011


Japan's tsunami-stricken nuclear power plant is leaking highly radioactive water into the sea from a newly discovered area of damage.

The Fukushima plant has been spewing radioactivity since March 11, when a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami knocked out power, disabling cooling systems and allowing radiation to seep out of the overheating reactors.

The water was tonight seeping from a recently found crack in a maintenance pit on the edge of the nuclear site into the Pacific Ocean.

I think its one of the Andromeda shots from NASA, not certain as it takes ages to dig them all out of the remote hard drive.
Years ago we had on the BBC 'A' for Andromeda, where they made contact.{via light beams}
Then,similar vein we had that thing on BBC TV where Eric Clapton played the music and they all had a problem with Plutonium. All so similar to what is really going on in Japan now, wish I could remember its name. Might have been called,'Edge of Darkness,' Good name for this kind of thing!

Just a note before us Europeans flutter to hang from the old oak beams. Its just that {bad grammar of course} but not to appear to be winging and moaning but!!

Since about 15.30, UTC there has only been one!! earthquake of about 4.8 on the East,{right hand side, of Japan} and this is out of keeping with the last 3 weeks so there may be but not certain as I don't have a ''Danny la Rue'' on these things but there may be a possibility of a bit of a log jam over on the north pacific plate.

Quoting, Senor Grother:-
Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Dr. Masters
Experience in his entry "Flying into Hurricane Hugo"


A second massive jolt rocks the aircraft. Gear loosened by the previous turbulence flies about the inside the aircraft, bouncing off walls, ceiling, and crew members. Next to Terry Schricker, our 200-pound life raft breaks loose and hurtles into the ceiling. Neil Rain fends off screwdrivers, wrenches, and his airborne toolbox with his arms. The locked drawers in the galley rip open, and a cooler loaded with soft drink cans explodes into the air, showering Alan Goldstein with ice and 12-ounce cans. Hugh Willoughby watches as invisible fingers pry loose his portable computer from its mounting, and hurl it into the ceiling, ripping a gash in the tough ceiling fabric. At the radar station, Peter Dodge shields himself and the Barbados reporter from two flying briefcases. Next to them, Bob Burpee grabs two airborne boxes of computer tapes, but has no more hands to grab a third box of tapes that smashes against the ceiling, sending the tapes caroming through the cabin.

A third terrific blow, almost six times the force of gravity, staggers the airplane. Clip boards, flight bags, and headsets sail past my head as I am hurled into the console. Terrible thundering crashing sounds boom through the cabin; I hear crew members crying out. I scream inwardly. "This is what it feels like to die in battle", I think. We are going down. The final moments of the five hurricane hunter missions that never returned must have been like this.

The aircraft lurches out of control into a hard right bank. We plunge towards the ocean, our number three engine in flames. Debris hangs from the number four engine.

A good article on the nuclear forensic modeling going vis-a-vis the reactors in Japan.

Am new to the site, if one of you would direct me to WU's explanation of how to "link", I would appreciate it.
I do not know if WU has instructions on how to link...If you use the "copy" feature, you can copy the url at the upper left of you screen and "paste" it in the box after clicking the "link" feature above the comment box...I will try to help you more if I can....:)

Quoting BahaHurican:
Of course those maps also illustrate that Bangladesh [which is mainly the Ganges river delta]is likely to adversely affected. We saw the impact of the flooded Indus on Pakistan last year; imagine the opposite extreme strung out over several years....

I am also fairly certain that some of the major rivers in China and SE Asia come out of the southeastern corner of Tibet. I'm not sure what kind of impact the melting glaciers will have on stream flow in that part of Asia, but I'll bet there will be some climate shifting because the glaciers are no longer there.....
Yea you're right. I had it written as the Ganges entered the Indian ocean from India, but its actually Bangladesh. Bangladesh is also one of the most densely populated countries in the world.

Thanks, Pat. Currently my sis is the only one of us with the kind of yard that will keep a larger dog contented, but I don't know when she'll be ready to get another dog... :(
