Flow in the living moment. — We are always in a process of becoming and nothing is fixed. Have no rigid system in you, and you’ll be flexible to change with the ever changing. Open yourself and flow, my friend. Flow in the total openness of the living moment. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond like an echo.
Hani bana ‘hatırla beni’ demiştin ya. Ben seni hiç unutmuyorum ki. Ama şu andan itibaren artık bana ait değilmişsin gibi hissediyorum. Sen hiç benim oldun mu ki? Soruyorum kendime. Beni öptüğünde kim vardı hayalinde. Toplanıyor anılar seninle birlikte. Saçılmasın kokun gibi beynimde. Kıyıda köşede kaybolduğun gibi sönüyor evimin ışıkları. Ama bil ki, ‘hatırla beni’ dediğin gibi beni de hatırlamayı dilersen bir gün, bu ev daima hasret nefesine..
Elon Musk Helps Launch OpenAI, Non-Profit Dedicated to Artificial Intelligence
OpenAI was just introduced to the world. It is a non-profit artificial intelligence research company that has a rather remarkable goal—to advance digital intelligence in a way that will benefit humanity as a whole…without being limited by a need to generate financial return.
Since the plan is for its research to be free from financial obligations, it hopes to focus on positive human impact. OpenAI believes AI should be an extension of individual human wills and, in the spirit of liberty, be as broadly and evenly distributed as possible.
The outcome of this venture is uncertain, and the work is difficult, but OpenAI’s founders believe the goal and the structure are right. And the founders are some pretty amazing people who have accomplished very notable work. For example, SpaceX’s Elon Musk and Y Combinator’s Sam Altman are the co-chairs. Contributions also came from LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman and PayPal co-founder and investor Peter Thiel (and that’s just the start of the list).
It is hoped the focus on positive human impact is what matters most to the best in the field, and OpenAI is set to test this.
Noromo or No Romance was used in The X-Files fandom to describe a preference for canon reading and fan fiction writing that maintained the relationship between Mulder and Scully as platonic.
Noromo fans were often set opposite Shippers, or MSR fans. This was taken to satirical extremes by the Mulder And Scully Hate Each Other (MASHEO) movement: “Mulder and Scully Hate each other? The idea is absurd. Almost as absurd as the ideas that Mulder and Scully should, could, or want to, be involved romantically.”
Noromos had their own folder on the official Fox message board (now at Prospero), after they took over the abandoned Kritschgau folder. It was a place of satirical posts, filk parodies, MASHEO Theories of Hatred and Completely Irrational Noromo Arguments. Other X-Philes hung out there - slashers, the odd forum troll or mod, and various kind of MSR shipper including intelli-shippers (shippers who considered themself a cut above the allegedly drooling masses of the MSR folder), fini-shippers (who didn’t want to see a Mulder/Scully relationship until the series finale) and darkside-shippers who reckoned the Noromos were just cooler.
Scientists from the Gladstone Institutes have discovered a way to prevent the development of multiple sclerosis (MS) in mice. Using a drug that blocks the production of a certain type of immune cell linked to inflammation and autoimmunity, the researchers successfully protected against the onset of MS in an animal model of the disease. The scientists say the next step is to test this strategy using other autoimmune disorders.
