in noticed-2020

Some things I noticed 08/22/2020:
  1. difference between space and terrestrial war is how long consequences last; debris render swathes of near-Earth space unusable for decades.
  2. Heron Systems AI won championship among competitors and beat F-16 pilot in five straight simulated dogfights in the man-vs-machine finale.
  3. error was later corrected by another user, but in the interim, Microsoft took an export of the data and used it to build Flight Simulator 2020.
  4. the inner core is a moon-size ball of iron floating in an ocean of molten metal, free to turn independently from our planet’s large-scale spin
    • “Perhaps inner core rotate at same speed as the planet, apparent difference explained by jagged surface that shifts over time”
  5. the removal of Berman and the effort to install someone besides Strauss was explicitly tied to an effort to curtail investigations Barr didn’t like.
  6. victims were brought to a basement in the Iglesia compound; mauled, tortured and beaten by appellants, who were deacons of the INC
  7. DFA lodged diplomatic protest over confiscation by Chinese Coast Guard of fish aggregating devices of Filipino fishermen in Bajo de Masinloc
  8. This War Will Destabilize The Entire Mideast Region And Set Off A Global Shockwave Of Anti-Americanism — The Onion, March 26, 2003
  9. the judge granted Citigroup’s request to freeze roughly $175 million the bank paid the hedge fund
  10. The missile knows where it is at all times. It knows this because it knows where it isn’t.
