I started feeding a GPT-2 1558M model Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. If you wanted to read a story generated by a machine, now's your chance. #AliceInWonderland #gpt2 #MachineLearning #literature
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it,
"and what is the use of a book," thought Alice "without pictures or conversations?"

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble

A thread to cover some of the major - and I mean seriously, shockingly major - gaps, mistakes and problems with the #environmental impact assessment for Montijo airport in #Portugal.

First up: no #fieldwork. AT ALL. 1/
That's right – the EIA of a major international #airport proposed for the country’s most important #wetland site for #bird #conservation didn’t bother to actually count any #birds.

Instead, they depended on studies already published for other reasons.

How did that work out? 2/
Well, the data on birds feeding in the #intertidal- the largest and most important #habitat in the #SPA- was collected in 2002-3.

In the 17 years since, the #Tagus has changed a lot for birds. Improved #water treatment but drastic increase in #shellfish harvesting. 3/

In response to @AOC’s #idiotic assertion that #US operated #detention facilities are #concentrationcamps, @Liz_Wheller posted a comment that @PPFA abortion businesses are the #concentration #camps we have to worry about.
@EmmaBella212 took exception to her observation. I replied, observing that #blastocysts, #embryos, and #fetuses are #human #beings.
@EricBrown1982 takes exception to my assertion that #science defines the offspring of #human #parents as #human and/or my assertion that #science confirms that the #blastocyst, the #embryo, and the #fetus are all #living #beings.

ಸಿಂಧೂ ಸರಸ್ವತಿ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಯ ನಗರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ, ಮತ್ತು ಮಧ್ಯಪೂರ್ವ ದೇಶಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆದ ಉತ್ಖನನ ಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ದೊರೆತ ಆಧಾರಗಳಿಂದ ೪೦೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಹಿಂದೆಯೇ ಈ ಎರಡೂ ಭಾಗಗಳ ನಡುವೆ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರ ವ್ಯವಹಾರಗಳಿದ್ದದ್ದು ತಿಳಿದು ಬಂದಿದೆ.

ಇದೇ ರೀತಿ, ಸುಮಾರು ೧೮೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಹಿಂದಿನ ಒಂದು ಗ್ರೀಕ್ ನಾಟಕದದಲ್ಲೇ ಕನ್ನಡ ಅಥವಾ ಕನ್ನಡದಂತಹ ಭಾಷೆಯ ಕೆಲವು ಪದಗಳು ಕಂಡು ಬಂದಿರುವುದನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ, ವಿದ್ವಾಂಸರು ಭಾರತದ ಪಶ್ಚಿಮ ಕರಾವಳಿಗೂ, ಗ್ರೀಸ್, ರೋಮ್ ಮೊದಲಾದ ರಾಷ್ಟ್ರಗಳ ನಡುವೆಯೂ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರ ಸಂಬಂಧಗಳು ಇದ್ದಿರಬೇಕೆಂದು ಊಹಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

Dr M #Karunanidhi was a scientists’ scientist. Among his numerous contributions to Tamil Nadu's development are outstanding universities like Anna University as well as the State Biotechnology Council and gender-sensitive institutions like the Women’s Biotechnology Park.
#Karunanidhi was also keen to see Tamil Nadu progress from food security to nutrition security. Long before India's #foodsecurity Act was introduced, he launched in the 1990s a ‘#Hunger -free area programme’ in order to fulfil the dream of Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar.
The former Chief Minister also married #science with Tamil #literature. At the World Tamil conference in 2010, Dr #Karunanidhi announced the setting up of genetic heritage gardens based on Sangam literature in five zones representing kurinji, mullai, neithal, palai and marutham.
