  1. Parent, apart from that I don't think any of those jobs above will be safe from AI. Some would be much better with AI. AI defence lawyer would be a much better lawyer than what most people can afford, it would know everything, every area of law, every loophole, everything. Instantly too. Health care assistant too. Think of the knowledge it could possess not to mention the abuse cases you hear about. Teaching too I reckon. Imagine history class, would be much better. Factory worker making car parts would be the best though. 😏 Athlete's will be the safest I think.

  3. No different to the theatre, not the movies. It's just another form of entertainment. The kids think it's real, and the parents know it's fake. Good guys against bad guys. Perfect family entertainment. Each to their own, as they say. And some good role models too i think. - the Rock being the most obvious one.
  4. It's not a sport like boxing or MMA, it's entertainment based. I get the impression it's the 'characters' that people like - 'the Rock', Hulk Hogan etc.. a bit of escapism, no different than going to the theatre, just a lot more fun.

  6. Some good news...They have a vaccine, but it will take up to two years before it's fit for use. Not sure how good this actually is though. Question: in the future, will it be possible to develop vaccines and release them immediately whilst still being safe? Maybe using advanced AI or something. https://www.vice.com/amp/en_asia/article/y3mw37/scientists-have-already-developed-a-coronavirus-vaccine?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral

  8. This is a strange place to post this isn't it! 🤔
  9. Just come across this, maybe something similar in the US. Under current EU rules, the chlorine wash is classed as a processing aid rather than an ingredient and so wouldn’t have to be declared on the packaging. This means UK consumers would be unlikely to know whether imported US chicken had been through the chlorination process unless it was voluntarily declared. http://theconversation.com/chlorine-washed-chicken-qanda-food-safety-expert-explains-why-us-poultry-is-banned-in-the-eu-81921
  10. For some reason YouTube won't play music, I'm currently thanking the lord for the musical tastes of SFN. Hallelujah🙏🏻
  11. True, but she's been dead for 84 years, so she's fair game as far as I'm concerned. I thinks it's hilarious 😂
  12. What you talking about, she's beautiful 😘 feast your eyes on princess Zahra Khanom Tadj es-Saltaneh (1883 – 1936) who was considered the ultimate symbol of beauty in Persia during the early 1900s. So much in fact, a total of 13 young men killed themselves because she rejected their love.
  13. It's raining where I am, but this song makes me not care. Perfect.
  14. Gravitational waves attributed to the collision of two neutron stars could have been produced by something much stranger.... https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/did-astronomers-just-discover-black-holes-from-the-big-bang/?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral Snapshot from the central region of a numerical simulation of two merging neutron stars.

  15. https://phys.org/news/2020-01-particle-chip.html This image, magnified 25,000 times, shows a section of a prototype accelerator-on-a-chip. The segment shown here are one-tenth the width of a human hair. The oddly shaped gray structures are nanometer-sized features carved in to silicon that focus bursts of infrared laser light, shown in yellow and purple, on a flow of electrons through the center channel. As the electrons travel from left to right, the light focused in the channel is carefully synchronized with passing particles to move them forward at greater and greater velocities. By packing 1,000 of these acceleration channels onto an inch-sized chip, Stanford researchers hope to create an electron beam that moves at 94 percent of the speed of light, and to use this energized particle flow for research and medical applications.

  16. Only 10% of Nobel prize winners being atheist wouldn't surprise me at all. Remember, even the Catholic Church promotes evolution. Not only that, but not everyone interprets religion the same, just because you believe in God doesn't mean you believe Noah's ark was real or homosexuals are going to hell.
  17. There isn't, it's click bait. They mean gravitational waves. Which aren't new are they. In fact, I used it in the OP title for the same reason.
  18. https://amp.businessinsider.com/gravitational-waves-new-class-of-collision-neutron-stars-2020-1?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral This article has some really amazing pictures/photos too. This supercomputer simulation shows one of the most violent events in the universe: a pair of neutron stars colliding, merging and forming a black hole. A neutron star is the compressed core left behind when a star born with between eight and 30 times the sun's mass explodes as a supernova. Neutron stars pack about 1.5 times the mass of the sun — equivalent to about half a million Earths — into a ball just 12 miles across. NASA Goddard

  20. Iranian plane crash https://www.newsweek.com/iranians-shot-down-ukraine-flight-mistake-sources-1481313?amp=1&utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral ...........…............................................................... Trump now wants US and Iran to work together https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-remarks-iran-missile-strike-1481084
  21. Also, as pointed out in the OP, it's not the Mosquitoe that kills, it's the parasite it carries. What about humans? Everything else seems to get along just fine until we show up and f**k it up. Having said that, the majority of people are kind and respectful, so maybe just a healthy purge instead. 🤑🥊 (joking of course)
  22. In this geological map of the volcanic field's summit region, the dashed, yellow ellipse marks the buried crater perimeter for the best-fitting gravity model. The dashed, white circle marks the buried perimeter that best fits geological observations.

  23. I agree completely, although there is some good quality channels on YouTube, if you don't understand the details and are just a layman it can be hard to tell if it's real or just a hypothesis. But if you think their bad, you should see some of the stuff on Quora
  24. Iran plane crash. Experts doubt 'Technical failure'. https://www.aol.co.uk/news/2020/01/08/iran-plane-was-most-likely-shot-down-say-experts/ What a wonderful start to the new year. A new war.
  25. Ok I'm no scientist and someone more qualified than me will surely give a better answer, but, in layman terms, the galaxies aren't actually moving faster than light. It's not the galaxies moving but the space between them, giving the appearance that the galaxies are moving faster than light. https://phys.org/news/2015-10-galaxies-faster.html
