Amazon this week said that it’s Rekognition facial recognition software can now detect a person’s fear, according to CNBC.
As one of several Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud services, Rekognition can be used for facial analysis or sentiment analysis by identifying different expressions and predicting emotions based on images of people’s faces. The system uses AI to ‘learn’ as it compiles data.
The tech giant revealed updates to the controversial tool on Monday that include improving the accuracy and functionality of its face analysis features such as identifying gender, emotions and age range.
“With this release, we have further improved the accuracy of gender identification,” Amazon said in a blog post. “In addition, we have improved accuracy for emotion detection (for all 7 emotions: ‘Happy’, ‘Sad’, ‘Angry’, ‘Surprised’, ‘Disgusted’, ‘Calm’ and ‘Confused’) and added a new emotion: ‘Fear.’” –CNBC
AI researchers at Microsoft, Kairos, Affectiva and others have spent considerable time and resources trying to read a person’s emotions based on their facial expressions, movements, voice and other factors.
That said, some experts have noted that people react and communicate differently based on culture and situation – which means that similar facial expressions and movements can convey more than one category of emotions. As such, researchers have warned “it is not possible to confidently infer happiness from a smile, anger from a scowl, or sadness from a frown, as much of current technology tries to do when applying what are mistakenly believed to be scientific facts,” according to the report.
CNBC notes that Rekognition has faced criticism for its use by law enforcement agencies, as well as a reported pitch to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and that it has been used by organizations that work with law enforcement.
Even though leftists have damaged the Supreme Court beyond repair by legislating from the bench and trying to ruin the lives of conservative nominees with sketchy sexual assault allegations from more than 30 years ago, several Senate Democrats issued a bizarre warning to the court this week by challenging them to “heal” division or else face “restructuring” in the future — which is to say, vote liberal or else have conservatives rotated off the court.
“The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law,” reports Fox News. “The [brief] was filed in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms. They are urging the court to stay out of the case brought by the NRA-backed group, claiming that because the city recently changed the law to ease restrictions, the push to the Supreme Court is part of an ‘industrial-strength influence campaign’ to get the conservative majority to rule in favor of gun owners.”
The brief was filed on behalf of Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Richard Durbin (D-IL), and Kirsten Gillibrand, (D-NY), who all took issue with recent conservative majority rulings.
“The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it,” the brief said. “Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'”
Do the senators actually believe that the conservative justices will fold and side with the liberals to keep up with appearances? Perhaps not, though Chief Justice John Roberts has shown himself to cave in to political pressure in the face of Democratic bullying, as demonstrated by his infamous vote in favor of Obamacare.
The brief comes shortly after 2020 hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) openly stated during the Democratic Party presidential debate that he would rotate conservative justices off the Supreme Court if he became president.
“I do not believe in packing the court,” Bernie proposed. “We’ve got a terrible 5-4 majority conservative court right now. But I do believe constitutionally we have the power to rotate judges to other courts and that brings in new blood into the Supreme Court and a majority I hope that will understand that a woman has a right to control her own body and that corporations cannot run the United States of America.”
Shortly before her election to U.S. Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) openly stated that Democrats should pack the Supreme Court. “I think that we take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the presidency, and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America,” she said.
Even liberal justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer have denounced the proposition of court-packing. Speaking with NPR, Ginsburg criticized past attempts to pack the Supreme Court, such as when President Franklin Roosevelt attempted to do so in the 1930s.
“Nine seems to be a good number,” the justice said. “It’s been that way for a long time. I think it was a bad idea when President Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the Court.”
America largely agrees with both Ginsburg and Breyer, with a recent Rasmussen poll indicating that Americans would rather see term limits on the Supreme Court before they see court-packing.
(Natural News) The apparent murder of Jeffrey Epstein is sending shock waves around the world, jolting more people awake to the fact that the deep state is so dangerous that even prisoners are not safe from being murdered.
It has now become apparent to every thinking person that America is occupied by an enemy force, a corrupt criminal cartel known as “Democrats” who will kill anyone that gets in their way or threatens their power. Jeffrey Epstein, of course, could have testified to the fact that Bill Clinton is a serial rapist and child abuser whose perverted crimes have been covered up by the complicit left-wing media for decades.
But what if President Trump and William Barr knew Epstein was about to be murdered and took steps to secure him in a safe location so that his testimony could also be secured? Epstein could be the key to bring down the Democrat deep state traitors whose leaders have long been tied to child trafficking, video blackmail and Satanic child molestation rituals. Testimony from Epstein could topple the entire house of cards and expose the sick, Satanic child sacrifice and rape rituals that high-level Democrats have been carrying out for decades.
That’s why this alternate theory is at least worth considering. Although it’s impossible to know whether this is true, there appears to be photographic evidence (see below) that the dead body carted out of Jeffrey Epstein’s jail cell was not the body of Epstein. The body was “swapped,” according to some analysts who are looking very closely at the evidence.
The most likely explanation of all this remains, in my view, the simpler theory that Jeffrey Epstein was murdered by deep state operatives connected to the Clintons. After all, the Clintons have been surrounded by a long list of mysterious deaths, “suicides” and body bags. The number of ex-Clinton body guards, accountants and business associated who have been killed is truly astounding. And the suspicious events at the prison where Epstein was being held continue to mount. For example, why is there no video footage of Epstein killing himself? Why were the guards pulled away? Why was Epstein removed from suicide watch? Why was Epstein’s cellmate removed from his cell just one day earlier? See a summary of these key questions from Michael Snyder.
According to Intellihub, which ran some of the best investigatory journalism following the Las Vegas mass shooting, the photograph of a body being removed from Epstein’s jail cell appears to depict the body of a man who isn’t Epstein at all. We haven’t yet confirmed the origins of these photos or the conclusions of the analysis, but it’s a theory worth considering, since the face profiles don’t seem to match. The nose, in particular, doesn’t seem to be the same nose as Jeffrey Epstein:
Adding to the mystery, according to Intellihub, a worker at the prison posted a message to 4chan that’s recorded as being posted 10 minutes before the media broke the story of Epstein’s death. According to this post, which has not yet been authenticated (so take it with a grain of salt):
Not saying anything after this pls do not try to dox me but last night after 0415 they took him [Epstein] [to] medical in a wheelchair front cuffed but not 1 triage nurse says they spoke to him. Next thing we know trip vans show up? We do not do releases on weekends unless a judge orders it. Next thing we know, he’s put in a single man cell and hangs himself? Here’s the thing, the trip van did NOT sign in and we did not record the plate number and a guy with a green dress military outfit was in the back of the van according to the tower guy that let him through the gate. You guys I am shaking right now but I think they switched him out.
This apparent post seems to indicate that a military person arrived and swapped out Jeffrey Epstein (alive) with a dead body that sort of resembled Jeffrey Epstein. Is it true? You decide.
Be skeptical of all this, of course. There are many potential theories about what happened to Jeffrey Epstein. Because the evidence is being so aggressively covered up, none of us have proof (yet) that any particular narrative is accurate. One thing we know for sure, however, is that the establishment media is lying to us all.
The obvious question at this point, then, is who would want to remove Jeffrey Epstein and keep him alive? There are really only two possibilities for this:
Possibility #1) William Barr and President Trump ordered him moved to a safe location to secure his testimony and help bring down the deep state.
Possibility #2) The deep state (Clintons) kidnapped him to torture him and kill him. But this explanation doesn’t make much sense because it’s much easier for them to just kill him in his own cell and be done with it. There’s no rational reason to remove him from his cell, only to kill him somewhere else.
Thus, the only remaining explanation — if you believe he was swapped out with another body — is that the DOJ and Trump had him moved to secure his testimony. There’s also a “wildcard” theory that Epstein worked for Mossad, and that Mossad snuck into the jail cell and swapped him out, but that seems beyond far-fetched at this point. Even for conspiracy analysts.
All this brings us to the possibility that Jeffrey Epstein may still be alive, and he may be in U.S. military custody where he is about to offer all kinds of video recorded testimony naming all the high-level Democrats who paid him money to sexually abuse teen girls and boys.
Or, perhaps, this is all just wishful thinking and the truth is that Epstein is dead as a rock. Dead men don’t talk. And they especially don’t talk about the Clintons.
By the way, the left-wing media — run by absolute morons and traitors — now says that if you don’t believe the official explanation of Jeffrey Epstein committing suicide, then you are a “conspiracy theorist.” These are the same media loons who have been pushing a wildly fabricated Russia collusion conspiracy theory for nearly the last three years. Theirconspiracies aren’t conspiracies, you see. But your conspiracies are “conspiracy theories.” That’s how the deranged, left-wing media operates, which is exactly why no intelligent person in America trusts anything the media reports anymore.
There will no doubt be a lot more breaking news (and possibly evidence) about Jeffrey Epstein in the days ahead. But if he’s alive and being held by the DOJ or the U.S. military, his testimony could implode the entire Democrat party which has been run by child trafficking rapists and sex abusers for many decades. Jeffrey Epstein could truly be the ultimate weapon to bring down the shadow government dominated by Democrats. That is, unless he’s already room temperature.
Don’t trust the media. Trust your instincts on this one. While you’re at it, the assassination of JFK was also a deep state cover-up run by the corrupt FBI of the 1960s. So you might want to pick up a few books by Jim Marrs and get educated about reality, because the deep state has been running psyops on the American people since at least World War II. Only now has a president arrived that could start to challenge the occupying enemy force (i.e. deep state swamp creatures) who have been mind-controlling America for generations.
Things are about to get interesting…
Under the leadership of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a $500 billion “mega-city” is being constructed in the northwestern corner of Saudi Arabia. This city has been named “Neom”, and when it is fully completed it will be approximately “the size of Massachusetts”. The Wall Street Journal was able to recently examine 2,300 pages of classified documents related to this project, and what they discovered is absolutely stunning.
This “city of the future” will feature an artificial moon, flying taxis and robot maids, but there will also be gene-editing in order to make humans stronger and smarter, and everyone living there will be subjected to 24 hour surveillance. In addition, we are being told that this will be “the world’s first independent international zone”, and many are concerned about what exactly that is going to mean.
“Neom” certainly has a futuristic ring to it, and according to Digital Trends it was derived by combining a Greek word and an Arabic word…
Called Neom (a mix of the Greek word for “new” and Arabic word for “future”), the project aims to construct a $500 billion city, covering 10,000 squares miles of coastline and desert in northwest Saudi Arabia. With its mixture of high-tech amenities and luxury services like restaurants and shops, the goal is to build what the Wall Street Journal describes as a superior to “Silicon Valley in technology, Hollywood in entertainment and the French Riviera as a place to vacation.”
It has been reported that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman originally came up with the idea for the city when he “pulled up a map of his country on Google Earth and saw its northwest quadrant was a blank slate.” He ultimately decided that it would be an ideal location for “the city of the future”, and he enlisted an army of U.S. consultants to help him fulfill his dream.
But will his dream ultimately become a nightmare? There are some extremely alarming things that I want to tell you about, but first let’s talk about some of the cool stuff that is planned for the city…
The in-development Saudi Arabian city-state will have robot maids, flying taxis, and glow-in-the-dark sand, according to confidential planning documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. An artificial moon will light up the sky every night, and a Jurassic Park-style island will let visitors mingle with robot dinosaurs.
Sounds like a fun place to live, right?
And even though the climate of the region is extremely, extremely dry, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman plans to use “cloud seeding” to produce rain whenever it is needed.
In other words, the fact that they will be using geoengineering to control the weather in this city is not even being hidden.
There will also be gene-editing facilities that will be used to make humans stronger and smarter than ever before, and according to the Wall Street Journal, Neom’s board plans to make it a fully automated city “where we can watch everything”…
“This should be an automated city where we can watch everything,” Neom’s founding board is quoted as saying in the documents, according to the WSJ. “[A city] where a computer can notify crimes without having to report them or where all citizens can be tracked.”
That means while you’re chilling on the glowing beach, daydreaming about your next prix fixe meal, a drone equipped with facial-recognition technology will likely be transmitting your location to Neom’s “1984”-esque law enforcement officials.
Hmmm – that actually doesn’t sound like such a fun place to live after all.
In fact, it basically sounds like the sort of dystopian nightmare that I have always been warning about.
But even more alarming is the fact that this city is being billed as “the world’s first independent international zone”…
The city itself will be “the world’s first independent international zone,” presents its marketing literature. How independent it will actually be remains to be seen. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia set up a “special authority,” chaired by the Crown Prince himself, to supervise the development of the project. Once its built, the zone will be managed via a “regulatory framework that will adopt world-class investment laws to support residents and targeted economic sectors,” declares its presentation, which also purports the city-state will have an “autonomous judicial system.” Its laws, enforced by city-wide automation and tracking of its citizens, would be independent of Saudi Arabia’s, created by a slate of both local and foreign investors “in accordance with international best practice.”
So this city will not technically be part of Saudi Arabia.
It will actually be a “city-state” with its own laws, rules, regulations and judicial system.
Could it be possible that this giant “independent international zone” will one day be the home base for an “international leader”?
I don’t know. I am just throwing that out there.
Obviously there is an agenda here. Why else would Saudi Arabia be willing to give up a giant tract of land the size of Massachusetts for a futuristic mega-city that won’t even be under their jurisdiction?
As is the case with so many other things, this isn’t being hidden from us at all. It is being done right out in the open, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is being quite clear that his intention is to make Neom the most important city on the entire planet.
But to me it sounds like a prison, and the truth is that this is the direction the entire globe is heading.
Already, virtually everything that we do is being watched, monitored or tracked somehow. With each passing year, the global Big Brother surveillance grid becomes even more extensive, and we have very little privacy left.
So perhaps we should stop talking so much about the dystopian nightmare that is coming, because to a very large degree it is already here.
Second Amendment supporters, conservatives, and Trump backers are sounding warning alarms that Republicans in Congress, the party that has traditionally stood up for Americans’ right to keep and bear arms, are preparing to cave on demands from Left-wing Democrats to enact a federal “red-flag” law following the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
“Senate Republicans are uniting around [Sen.] Lindsey Graham’s bill that would effectively end your 2A rights,” Ammoland noted in a Thursday post following reports that the South Carolina Republican had ‘struck a deal’ with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) for a red flag bill POTUS Donald Trump’s own daughter, Ivanka, is pushing.
John Harris, the executive director of the Tennessee Firearms Association, wrote in December 2018 that while red flag laws were all the rage among blue states, they “could at some point be federal.” Boy, was he prophetic.
NewsTarget noted the same month:
Red flag laws empower the state to label anyone as “dangerous” based solely on the recommendation of a friend, family member, or other acquaintance. The person being charged does not know they’ve been charged because they are absent from the court proceedings. Most often they only find out after police arrive at their place of residence, sometimes with guns drawn during pre-dawn raids, to confiscate their otherwise legally owned guns.
Known as “Extreme Risk Protection Orders,” red flag laws are insulting to the Constitutionin a number of ways, writes Philip Van Cleave in a separate Ammoland piece. In addition to injuring the Second Amendment’s ‘infringement’ clause, red flag laws also violate the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution as well — depriving someone of their property without due process, while essentially finding them guilty of something without a trial and without ever being charged or convicted.
This is the legislation that a growing number of Republicans — and, perhaps, the president — are now supporting. (Related: Analysis: Are Republicans really set to cave on gun control and ‘red flag laws?’ Don’t be so sure.)
Gun groups are lining up to oppose Republicans who support Graham’s bill, including the senator himself.
“Gun Owners of America has already vowed to support a primary challenger to Lindsey Graham because he is introducing this bill,” the group said. “And we will take note of any and all Republicans who join him in shredding the Second Amendment.”
Groups are warning that it is impossible to overstate how dangerous this legislation could potentially be, not the least of which because it is ostensibly supported by Democrats but also because of the potential it will be abused and misused by Democrat officials to deprive as many people of their guns as possible, and again — without a constitutional amendment, without a trial, and without being convicted of any crime.
Only suspected of maybe wanting to commit a crime. Perhaps. At some point. Or maybe not.
Graham’s legislation is also sinister because it wouldn’t create a red flag law, per se, but rather fund a federal “bribe pot” of money to ‘encourage’ states to pass red flag laws — like states were ‘encouraged’ to pass “RealID” and ‘encouraged’ to pass a 55-mile-per-hour speed limit once upon a time and ‘encouraged’ to lower alcohol blood levels. The Feds ‘encourage’ state compliance by bribing them with funds, as Graham’s bill does, or depriving them of money needed to fix roads and highways and bridges (even though the state’s taxpayers contributed money for such upkeep and repairs).
“To add insult to injury, Lindsey Graham is downright lying to the American people when he says that this bill would recognize due process,” GOA says, noting that red flag laws, by their very nature, must violate due process because guns are removed from homes and from gun owners without trials, without evidence, and without a crime ever having been committed.
Congress is not currently in session, but we expect this bill to be waiting for lawmakers when they return from their summer recess.
(Natural News) California is experiencing a homelessness crisis of unprecedented proportions, and it is now endangering the health and safety of every single person living in the state, particularly those who live in coastal areas.
Laura Ingraham recently hosted television personality and medical internist Dr. David Drew Pinsky, commonly known as Dr. Drew, on her show The Ingraham Angle on Fox News.
Together they shone a light on the effects of the homelessness crisis, one of which is the fact that 80 percent of California’s coastline is now infested with human feces. (Related: California’s wealthy elite finally facing their day of reckoning as liberal policies leave surge of homeless people, used needles and human feces on their doorstep.)
Dr. Drew doesn’t allow his kids to swim in the Californian ocean. As an ex-lifeguard and medical professional, he knows that the water poses too much of a health risk. He believes that one reason for this is that current technology does not match the state’s water purification needs.
He also believes that there is another massive contributing factor to the coastline’s contamination, however. (Related: Finally, some media truth about California – U.S. News ranks the state at the bottom for ‘quality of life.’)
As Dr. Drew told Ingraham, small amounts of runoff in various places along the coast is normal, but there is now a consistent, recurring water contamination problem. He believes that the 60- to 80,000 homeless people defecating, urinating and bleeding directly into gutters on a daily basis is the major source of contamination. All that sewage and human waste makes its way into the L.A. River and Santa Ana River Basin, ultimately ending up in the oceans.
Dr. Drew noted:
“There is an organization out here called Heal the Bay which keeps tabs on safety of our beaches in Southern California, from Orange County to Ventura. Since the rains last Winter, [Heal the Bay] has been giving our beaches C’s to F’s, and F means completely overrun with fecal bacteria. What comes with that are other things like syringes, Hepatitis A and other infectious diseases.”
The publication LAist recently reported on this contamination, noting that there are at least five beaches in Southern California where swimming or surfing means you could end up paddling around in feces:
The bad news is that when it rains, the runoff that makes its way down to the water is chock-full of pathogens that can lead to things like upper respiratory illness, ear and eye infections and gastrointestinal issues. …
Five of the top 10 dirtiest beaches in the state are located in Southern California, according to the report.
So you probably want to avoid:
All have elevated levels of bacteria for various reasons, even during the dry season.
Heal the Bay believes that runoff from the state’s recent devastating fires is responsible for the contamination. They allege that it is the result of the fires causing around two dozen homes to get disconnected from the sewage treatment plant.
Dr. Drew does not accept that explanation.
As he says, the number of people living on the streets without access to bathroom facilities equates to the population of a city the size of Pasadena. Environmentalists would be going ballistic if a city of those proportions suddenly got disconnected from sewage treatment facilities, but there has been nothing but deafening silence from them about the homelessness crisis and its devastating impact.
Dr. Drew insists the situation is dire.
This problem is “proliferating to the point that even traffic is getting blocked by debris and feces and garbage,” he warns. “Rats have taken over the city. It’s not consistent with civilization. How many must die before we change direction?”
