Abstracts don't provide enough info to ascertain the quality of the study; they're like academic click-bait to give you an idea whether you want to read the whole thing. The actual data (and how they were obtained) that give a clue about the reliability of the study's methodology, analysis, and conclusions aren't there.

I'm not surprised about the influence of "mathiness."

That's true but what about if it's nepotism where you pay for all the best schools for a kid, pay for college, give them money to start a business. What if they're then successful because they do work hard but got a head start poorer kids don't have. Like Taylor swift, very successful right now, but her dad paid for her early career.

Posted elsewhere on the internet:

Related and I haven't tried it myself, but a /pol/ post claims that Bing Images (which probably uses similar woke-ass computer code) adds extra terms to the end of some image generation requests.

If someone wants to test this out try ending an image prompt such as "People near the water's edge at the Venice carnival a sign that says". Attached to that suggestion is a picture of a bunch of people standing in water, one of which is holding a sign that says "FEMALE, AFRICAN".

Another example claims to have used the prompt "Danish people frolicking in a field without", and shows groups of blonde-ish white people smiling in a field.

Another post: "English people sitting in a park eating a picnic without" next to a picture of what I'd describe as an upper-middle class English-looking woman, and elderly woman who looks like she might be her mother, and a guy who looks like a Brit playing an American or vice-versa.

If someone wants to test this out on Google's image AI and post the results that'd be grand.

Nepotism is bad for the same reason DEI is bad. If you don't hire or promote based on merit, you end up with unqualified people in positions that make bad decisions and damage the company. That's bad for everybody; employees, stock holders, and customers.

The best way to create a better life for your children is to give them a solid foundation to make their own success. That means education, setting a good example, instilling them with morals, giving them a sense of personal responsibility, and not spoiling them. Which means they have to pay for their mistakes and don't get everything handed to them on a silver platter. Raise a child right and they will make their own success and not be dependent on you.

Still, I agree that you have to protect yourself, but you, simply as a human being, have an obligation to disclose something like that. Even to a casual partner and before you actually have sex. This militant push back is insane to me. What kind of asshole keeps something like that hidden.

You can get around that by making it a members only private club. Not sure why anyone needs a segregated bar. I don't believe in this "safe space" crap.

Wow. 60 years is what I would expect for someone convicted of sex trafficking and rape. Not merely taking clandestine pictures. The later is still an invasion of privacy, which is a form of violence, but it does not even remotely approach the severity of kidnapping, forced prostitution, and bodily harm that some children face.

Honestly, putting him on the sex registry for life and making him a social pariah seems like a fair punishment. If he is determined to still be a danger to others, then prison time would also be in order. But let us not pretend that what he did rises to the level of rape or kidnapping.

The last three and a half years have been times of enormous upheaval. It has affected politics, economics, culture, media, and technology. It’s not just about the spreading of economic, cultural, and demographic decay. Millions and billions of lives have been wrecked, to be sure, but there is also a big impact on the way we see the world around us.

What we once trusted, we now doubt and even disbelieve as a matter of new habit. The simple categories of understanding that we once deployed to make sense of the world have been tested, challenged, and even overthrown. Old forms of ideological commitments have opened their way to new.

If you have not shifted your thinking in some respect over these years, you are either a prophet, asleep, or in denial.

There is no need to change your principles or ideals. What should change in light of evidence is your evaluation of the problems and threats, your outlook on the relative priorities of focus, your perceptions of the functionality of institutional structures, your awareness of issues and concerns about which you had limited prior knowledge, your political and cultural allegiances, and so on.

...observing one’s own tribe collapse into craven careerism and coercion is disorienting. But the problem goes even deeper. The most striking alliance of our time has been to observe the lockstep of the elites in government, media, tech, and academia. The reality blows apart the traditional binary of public vs private that has dominated ideological discussion for centuries.

i just came across a fun article that may well explain quite a lot.

it selected 200 american adults with advanced degrees. [graphic shows % breakdown of people w/a Masters and a PhD in humanities/social sciences, medicine, mathematics, natural science/technology and other (e.g., education]

they were asked to gauge study abstracts and rate their assessment of their quality on a scale of 0-100. it used the same two abstracts for all participants...

The manipulation always consisted in the addition of the following [meaningless mathematical formula] at the end of the abstract.

and adding “mathiness” to an abstract caused people to rate it more highly in inverse proportion to how much they knew about math and models.

for humanities, social sciences the variance was large and stat sig (p<0.01) and for other (including education) it was twice as big and also stat sig (p<0.01). that’s a helluva p value for an N this small. this seems to be a VERY pronounced effect and it gets worse the less expert in math you are.

Another time, I was on a social media page where Ivy League students and graduates shared stories about their schools. Someone had posted a story about Yeonmi Park, a North Korean refugee who had graduated from Columbia University. Park described her alarm about how the monolithic culture at her Ivy League school reminded her of her home country. The top-rated comment, the one with the most “like” and “love” reactions: “She should have stayed in North Korea.” They couldn’t bear the criticism and posted endless mean-spirited comments mocking Park, with some saying she should “go back to Pyongyang.”

Perhaps these arrogant Ivy league types in the ruling class should keep that in mind when lecturing other nations.

Ordinarily, the people who visited this webpage would have considered the statement that a refugee should have stayed where she came from to be reprehensible (and it is). But in this instance it was lauded because Park’s comments undermined these people’s view of themselves as morally righteous. Many students and graduates of top universities are terrified of being seen as what they really are. We don’t leave messes for other people to clean up, it’s those other elite students from that other school. We’re not xenophobic, it’s those unenlightened people who didn’t go to a fancy college. We haven’t cultivated an ideologically rigid environment—go back to where you came from.

Sounds like an Orwellian nightmare that they portray other nations as.

If the alumni of the Ivy League want a better society, they need to use their privileged positions to make changes. I get the feeling though they are going to make things worse rather than better as it stands.

Australia has mostly been a US puppet, but at least in this one case, the Australian government has said they want Assange back.

Yeah you did but I guess you just want someone to call out corruption, while being corrupt?

You're right, economy matters for this. I also do think presidents make economy worse on purpose (inflation caused on purpose) as that helps the rich but then try to do good things in their fourth year to help improve their polling. Why does a presidents party always get voted out in midterms, because presidents always sell out and hurt the economy. If wall st guy Romney was president it'd ever just as bad.

I didn't say anything about not being corrupt.

He seems like the lesser of the evils, though.

The single most influencing factor in the upcoming election will be the economy. During recessions, incumbants usually get voted out, or partiez flipped. It's what screwed Carter and HW Bush. Trump didn't get voted out for being an asshole, he got voted out because covid tanked our economy in 2020. My guess is Biden will try and bump down interest rates slightly before the election to give that short-term edge. Also shows that if we go into a recession at the end of a president's first term, it's usually pretty bad, and will take a while to recover. We will see what happens.

SPAIN: Woman Sentenced To Six Months In Prison After Making "Transphobic" Comments Towards Male Ex-Prostitute by xoenix in TumblrInAction

[–]Mcheetah [score hidden]  (0 children)

You ever notice how the establishment started with "white supremacist Nazis" back in 2015 and now are so extreme to the left, that being a biological woman is considered "problematic." This wasn't even a woman anyway; it was a tranny who got you six months in prison for "misgendering" another tranny. The point still remains.

"No slippery slope," they said. "It's just about protecting people from violent extremists," they said. Now batshit insane third-wave feminist women are learning how Marxist-Communism actually works by being subjugated by fourth wave "intersectional" feminists calling them TERFs and letting literal men beat them and actually "oppress" them. This South Park clip from five years ago is more relevant now than ever.

The reality of Gaza has been censored for many years.
Any story from within Gaza reveals a hell.

The media in Israel (and US) only list Zionist propaganda.

Do you actually know that zionists are spreading a lot of propaganda?

And controlling a lot of the news media?

That's true. I think that was fishy, he was likely abusing them. I don't trust reports on his money. He was rich but just couldn't admit that, cuz of the implication. Him and Engels both enjoyed the good life while writing about how bad the bougoise (middle class) is. The surviving Jenny's were rich socialites, rewarded for what their dad did.

Kremlin slams Biden comments on Russia’s Putin as disgracing US - During a campaign fundraiser in San Francisco, the US president called his Russian counterpart a ‘crazy SOB’. by chakokat in WayOfTheBern

[–]chakokat[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Biden on Wednesday called Putin a “crazy SOB [son of a b****]” during a fundraiser for his re-election campaign in San Francisco as he spoke about threats to the world, including “that guy Putin and others”, the risk of nuclear conflict and the existential threat to humanity from climate change.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov on Thursday condemned the remarks and said it was “unlikely to infringe on our president”. “But it debases those who use such vocabulary,” he said.

It is not the first time Biden has used the offensive term. In 2022, he was heard on a hot mic calling a Fox News journalist an SOB. And he has in the past also described Putin as a “butcher” and a “war criminal”.

Peskov added that the remark was “probably some kind of attempt to look like a Hollywood cowboy. But honestly, I don’t think it’s possible”.

“Has Mr Putin ever used one crude word to address you? This has never happened. Therefore, I think that such a vocabulary debases America itself,” he said.

Sorry, the relevant scientific references are not peer reviewed science ..
They point to a similar article and an article about gasses in the atmosphere.
It is just a form of circular reasoning.

Most youtube videos show more real science than this MIT article.

The influence of water is very complex.
So it would be great if you had a real scientific article instead.

I didn't watch the YouTube video, assumed it had something to do with your post.

and that is confirmed by Israeli people themselves.

He had a housekeeper I think he was doing ok. Probably paid by banker friends to write his books which helped influence poor people and get them to fight in wars. I actually suspect Marx didn't write his books, Engels did. We don't hear about him as much. Probably cuz he was against top down revolutions. Just supported democracy. He had based views on women too. He pretended to be communist to get with proletariat women

Republicans most likely will not vote for a woman. That's also why I think they are throwing. Romney seems like one of the few more honest ones that isn't as afraid to denounce corruption within the party. The rest were too afraid of being cancelled by calling out Trump's assholery, and look where that got us.

Gaza is a prison.

All civilians who lived in (former) Palestine and got their homes and land stolen by settlers.
Then many were moved to Gaza, and a wall was put around Gaza to keep them there.
Random civilians in Gaza were regularly raided at home and taken to a prison and tortured.

The few who have work outside Gaza, need a special pass to leave for work.
And often they are blocked from leaving.
Also Egypt blocks them, because they do not want to a huge camp inside their country.

It's good for your children and makes you feel good. But it's bad for every other human in earth. In a perfect world everything would be based on merit. It's not a perfect world. And socialism makes it even worse. So even though I'm against nepotism I'm also admitting I don't know of a perfect system that is better than capitalism.
