    An interesting parallel to the issue of AI and human workers are tomatoes. In the U.S. there was a propaganda push some years ago to encourage Americans to favor a particular breed of tomato that was amenable to harvesting by machine (in order to get rid of migrant workers). The problem is/was that particular breed of tomatoes have a substandard taste. One of the rare propaganda failures.

    Putin's BROKEN PROMISES - what Russia could've been


    Roman_NFKRZ


    Description
    My name is Roman and I make videos about Russia, the Post-Soviet space and my not so exciting life. What's up?
    Nov 30, 2023
    When we look at modern Russia, we see a country that is very much against the West and what it stands for. However, the truth is that it wasn't always like this. The Russian government and Vladimir Putin were openly pro-EU and pro-American in the early 2000s, and a lot of the promises made in their election campaigns seem completely impossible today. The ruling party United Russia promised high salaries, better quality of life, friendship with the USA and even joining the Schengen zone and introducing a visa-free regime with Europe. Let's take a look at what Russia promised its people in the early 2000s.

    If I may, I think I found this channel here thanks to you Gio.

    I just noticed a new video, I haven't watched it in recent months.

    My dear(est) friend is Georgian and what happens there is both concerning and interesting to see.

    My News & Price Check (groceries in Russia and Georgia)

    Today I'll bring you to a Russian supermarket, and to a supermarket in Georgia. I'll also share some personal news and then talk a little about what's happening in Russia recently. It's been a while since I posted a video from a supermarket, that was a great fun filming and editing it!

    Can Palmer Luckey Reinvent the U.S. Defense Industry?

    WSJ


    Dec 4, 2023
    Military tech startup Anduril Industries is shaking up the U.S. defense industry as it is one of the few privately held technology companies finding success as a Defense Department contractor. But what makes the company’s software so unique that it is being used across multiple branches of the U.S. military and in both the Russia-Ukraine War and Israel-Hamas War?
