Algorithm Is First to Identify Faces Better Than Humans Can, April 23, 2014


By Carl Engelking

Let’s face it, from trivia to teaching, computers are doing things we thought were uniquely human — and doing them better. Now, facial recognition, a skill humans once dominated, has a new champion. Computer scientists have developed a facial recognition algorithm that, for the first time, outperforms humans’ own abilities.

Facial recognition systems are already better than humans at comparing two images to determine if they are the same person, but only when variables like lighting, pose and expression are controlled. When you shake things up, humans still correctly identify faces with over 97 percent accuracy; before now no other algorithm had come close that mark. However, scientists’ new algorithm, called GaussianFace, performed the feat with an accuracy of 98.52 percent.

Training the Champ
The new algorithm condenses each face it “sees” into a small image to position the eyes, nose, and corners of the mouth in consistent locations. Then, it further divides the image into small, overlapping squares and mathematically charts each square’s unique characteristics, allowing it to compare two images.

Scientists trained the algorithm to look for correct facial features by setting it loose on four massive datasets of face images. Once training was complete, it was time for the main event: Labeled Faces in the Wild (LFW).

LFW is a dataset of 13,000 face images, and is considered the gauntlet for face recognition algorithms. It challenges programs to determine whether a pair of pictures is the same person or different people. However, each photo switches up angles, lighting, makeup and expressions to really test an algorithm’s proficiency.

The GaussianFace algorithm emerged from the test a champion, beating humans’ 97.35 percent average performance on LFW. The algorithm could someday be used in myriad applications including security, image retrieval, and biometric credentials for our computers and mobile devices. The scientists published their findings earlier this month in the online journal arXiv.

Scalar Energy and Controlling the Weather With Lasers, April 23, 2014

Geoenginneering, HAARP, scalar energy, chemtrails, weather warfare, storm manipulation, cloud-seeding, weather weaponization, solar obscuration, climate change...
These are all terms well familiar to those who have done research into the very real issue of weather modification. Not so for the general public.

But now the mainstream is slowly acclimating people to the idea of this type of ’new’ technology, even though research shows this has been going on for decades. It’s what they’re NOT revealing that is the dangerous part.
Scientists think they can control weather with lasers
From: CBSNews

For many Americans who wished they could change the weather -- whether it be in the Northeast during this past winter or in drought-stricken California -- researchers may have found a way to aim a high-energy laser beam into clouds to make it rain or trigger lightning.

The existence of condensation, storms and lightning are all due to the presence of large amounts of static electricity in the clouds. Researchers from the University of Central Florida and the University of Arizona say that a laser beam could activate those large amounts of static electricity and create storms on demand.

By surrounding a beam with another beam that will act as an energy reservoir, the central beam will be sustained for greater distances than previously possible. The secondary beam will refuel and help to prevent the dissipation of the primary beam, which would break down quickly on its own.

Although lasers can already travel great distances, it behaves differently than usual, collapsing inward on itself when a laser beam becomes intense enough, according to Matthew Mills, a graduate student at the UFC Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers.

"The collapse becomes so intense that electrons in the air’s oxygen and nitrogen are ripped off creating plasma -- basically a soup of electrons," Mills explained in a statement.

Afterwards, the plasma tries to spread the beam back out -- causing an internal struggle between collapsing and spreading -- what’s known as "filamentation." This process in turn creates a light string that lasts only until the beam disperses.

"Because a filament creates excited electrons in its wake as it moves, it artificially seeds the conditions necessary for rain and lightning to occur," Mills explained.

Previous work done by other researchers have led to some type of "electrical event" in clouds -- raising an added risk of a lightning strike when seeding clouds with lasers, according to the researchers.
"What would be nice is to have a sneaky way which allows us to produce an arbitrary long ’filament extension cable.’ It turns out that if you wrap a large, low intensity, doughnut-like ’dress’ beam around the filament and slowly move it inward, you can provide this arbitrary extension," Mills said in a statement.

"Since we have control over the length of a filament with our method, one could seed the conditions needed for a rainstorm from afar. Ultimately, you could artificially control the rain and lightning over a large expanse with such ideas."

Paul D. Burley | Stonehenge: As Above, So Below, April 22, 2014


Paul Burley discusses his book Stonehenge: As Above, So Below – Unveiling the Spirit Path on Salisbury Plain which identifies the original design and purpose of the Stonehenge ritual landscape.

Stonehenge remains one of the most profound mysteries on Earth. We know almost nothing about the people who built it, how they did so, or why. As with the pyramids of Egypt, it seems impossible that Stonehenge could have been constructed using the primitive tools and methods prevalent at the time. Theories about its purpose have ranged from an astronomical observatory to a scared ceremonial, burial or even sacrificial site. What seems clear, however, is that ancient civilizations the world over possessed an innate understanding of the relationship between the cycles of life, death and rebirth, and those of the wider cosmos. The belief that life is everywhere and in all things and that all things are interconnected was fundamental to their worldview. It is vital to keep this in mind when contemplating the enigma that is Stonehenge.

Stonehenge: As Above, So Below will change your understanding of the people who built the first and largest monument and many other mid-Neolithic structures that remain vital to the functioning of this sacred landscape. You will discover that the Stonehenge landscape is the oldest and best preserved example of astronomically-related sacred symbolism ever constructed. It is a major breakthrough unveiling a new paradigm for how Stonehenge was used over five thousand years ago, and how we should view it today.

Tom Campbell Supports Dr. Rupert Sheldrake's 10 Dogmas of Science, April 22, 2014


Tom Campbell, physicist, and author of My Big TOE, responds to Dr Rupert Sheldrake's 10 dogmas of science from Dr Sheldrake's book The Science Delusion (Science Set Free in the US), and discusses the one concept that shakes up materialist worldview scientists the most - Consciousness.

Materialist worldview scientists have taken small steps for man for the past 100 years and now need to understand (fittingly from a NASA physicist) that the next "giant leap for mankind" in science is Consciousness.

Note: MBT theory scientifically derives a supreme being, what Tom calls the Larger Consciousness System, and what some may call God.

Ricardo Duchesne | The Uniqueness of Western Civilization & Multicultural Madness | Hour 1 | April 18, 2014

April 18, 2014–Ricardo Duchesne teaches sociology and world history at The University of New Brunswick, Saint John, Canada. His publications include one book, 45 refereed articles, one chapter, 13 encyclopedia entries, and 18 non-refereed articles. His book, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, a major work of 528 pages, was released in February 2011. Currently he is doing research on multiculturalism and the identity crisis of the West.

We’ll discuss how in recent decades, the field of world history has been relentless in its downgrading of the idea of Western uniqueness in pursuit of a multicultural point of view. Ricardo Duchesne calls into question much of the scholarly research seeking to justify an anti-Eurocentric spirit and counter-critiques the revisionist movement. We’ll talk about how the revisionist movement strongly disapproves of anyone who might suggest that the West is exceptional or that it blazed a special path in history, although humanity has gained much from the unique heritage of Western cultural and intellectual journey.

The tragedy of the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster took place almost three years ago. Since then, radiation has forced thousands out of their homes and led to the deaths of many. It took great effort to prevent the ultimate meltdown of the plant – but are the after effects completely gone? Tokyo says yes; it also claims the government is doing everything it can for those who suffered in the disaster. However, disturbing facts sometimes rise to the surface. To shed a bit of light on the mystery of the Fukushima aftermath, Sophie Shevardnadze talks to the former mayor of one of the disaster-struck cities. Katsutaka Idogawa is on SophieCo today.

GRTV Backgrounder | Cold War 2.0 and the Threat of Nuclear Warfare, April 20, 2014


The rhetoric that has been spewed in recent years about nuclear disarmament is, of course, was always just that: rhetoric. The US government has never seriously considered giving up its nuclear stockpile, or even renouncing a first-use nuclear doctrine.

As Dr. Yuki Tanaka of Hiroshima University explains, the Obama administration has not simply continued the aggressive Bush-era stance on America's nuclear arsenal, but actually extended it.

In reality, the Obama administration has simply reaffirmed and even extended the existing US nuclear policy allowing for a first-strike, offensive nuclear war against its enemies.

Find out more about the nuclear threat in the new cold war in this week's GRTV Backgrounder.
