Robots Used To Treat Pedophilia?…

01) Robots Used To Treat Pedophilia?


“Robots designed to look like children could someday be used to treat pedophiles, some experts in the subject say.

The subject came up during a recent robot ethics panel discussion in Berkeley.

Some therapists say they could use the anatomically correct robots designed to look like children to provide therapy to some sexual offenders.

‘Child-like robots could be used for pedophiles the way methadone is used to treat drug addicts,’ Ron Arkin, Georgia Tech’s Mobile Robot Lab director said during the panel discussion according to Forbes. ‘There are no presumptions that this will assuredly yield positive results – I only believe it is worth investigating in a controlled way to possibly provide better protection to society from recidivism in sex offenders. If we can save some children, I think it’s a worthwhile project.'”

Interesting watching a video, from before Anna [and TYT] had the daggers out for Dave.

If they can make a believable robot in every way, just as freely available as true children…I might be intrigued.

If they’re going to slap a massive price tag on it…there’s a problem.

Pricing something like this way out of the reach of any typical “pedophile”, is not a solution to anything…

…It’s gross exploitation.

01) Benny Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s proposal to form unity government


“Benny Gantz has rejected Benjamin Netanyahu’s call to join him and form a unity government, saying he alone should be Israel’s next prime minister. Gantz’s party holds a two-seat advantage after most of Tuesday’s election votes have been counted. Dr. Ehud Eiran, a senior lecturer at the School of Political Sciences at the University of Haifa, Israel, joined CBSN to discuss what happens next.”

01) Who Created The Baby Boomer Generation And Why


“With this clip, I decided to respond to the battle going on between the generations which is so evident in the comments on my channel. So many blame the baby boomers for our current state of affairs (which they don’t like) while others blame the millennials. Yet we all know that parents are to a great extent responsible for the actions and attitudes of the children. This clip presents portions of my 6 part TV series titled Making Sense Of The Sixties where, in 1989, I asked parents of those who grew up in the 1960s about how they raise their children.”

01) Man Living Off-Grid in His Incredible Self-Built Cabin


“This man built a beautiful off-grid cabin with the help of friends for $65,000 CAD including the cost of the land. There was no road access to his lot so he had to bring in all of the building materials using a 4-wheeler with a small trailer, and then load them on a material elevator to bring them up a cliff to where he wanted to build his home.

You can find out more about this cabin on Instagram here:

The cabin can collect and store 3,000 litres of rainwater from the roof. One of the water tanks is inside the house to prevent the water from freezing during the winter, and the other two are in a shed that is attached to the cabin so that warm air can be circulated with fans to prevent the other two tanks from freezing as well.

For heat, he has a wood stove, and he brings the firewood up to the cabin using the material elevator.

For power, he has a solar power system and a backup generator for cloudy days.

This micro cabin has two lofts, one is a living room, and one is the bedroom. On the main floor is a kitchen with propane 2-burner cooktop and 110 volt fridge, a bathroom with a sink and a bath (but no toilet because he prefers to have the toilet outside), and a spacious living area with the wood stove and dining table.

He lives in the tiny house with his girlfriend and enjoys the simple lifestyle and the challenge of living sustainably.

Thanks for watching!

Use Natural Climate Solutions To Protect Nature – Extinction Rebellion…

01) Use Natural Climate Solutions To Protect Nature – Extinction Rebellion


“Right now, we are ignoring #NaturalClimateSolutions. We spend 1000 times more on global fossil fuel subsidies than on natural based solutions. This is your money, it is your taxes, and your savings.” – @GretaThunberg

#NatureNow @GeorgeMonbiot http://conservation.org/naturenow

Recent research has indicated that living ecosystems like forests, mangroves, swamps and seabeds can pull enormous quantities of carbon from the air and store them safely. Estimates have found that protecting these natural systems could provide more than a third of the emissions reductions needed to keep to global heating below 1.5 degrees Celsius while also enhancing the resilience of people and nature across the world to climate change.

Despite this promise, Natural Climate Solutions receive only around 2% of the funding spent on climate change mitigation globally, and few have heard about it. This short, independent film was made to make nature a part of the climate conservation.

Mr. Monbiot, a political journalist, author and activist who founded the Natural Climate Solutions campaign earlier this year, stated, “The beautiful thing about Natural Climate Solutions is that they simultaneously repair the climate and our damaged ecosystems. They offer real hope where hope was scarce before. But they are not a substitute for leaving fossil fuels in the ground. We need to do both to avert climate breakdown.”

Produced by Gripping Films Ltd., an independent London-based science and nature film company that specializes in telling positive stories to change the world, the film is High Impact/Low Carbon footprint. The film team minimized their carbon footprint by using public transportation to travel from London to Sweden to film Greta and electric vehicles to film George. The film was mainly composed from recycled and donated Creative-Commons licensed footage. The remaining carbon footprint was offset through NCS investments.

The film’s production costs were covered with sponsorship from Conservation International, The Food and Land Use Coalition, and a donation from Gower Street. Musician and performance artist Rone donated use of his track, Motion, to the film.

Tom Mustill, head of Gripping Films, an independent production company specialising in stories of where people and nature meet, said: “One of the things that made me want to immediately make this film, gave me hope that we can make something quickly and that people would find it interesting and listen, was the success of Extinction Rebellion. Being part of that and seeing how many people of all generations can be engaged with it, gave me the courage to step out of the normal way of making films which is to get funding first and then get someone to broadcast it. We just thought, let’s go for it, and hopefully people will want to see it.”
