    NYC bans residents from saying phrases 'go back to your country' and 'illegal alien'

    New York City announced it is now illegal for residents of the city to threaten to call U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on their neighbors, along with a ban on the phrases "go back to your country" and "illegal alien."

    "New York City has made it illegal to threaten to call ICE based on a discriminatory motive or to tell someone 'go back to your country.' Hate has no place here," the city said Thursday on its official Twitter account.

    The NYC Commission of Human Rights said they were issuing new law enforcement guidelines based on both forms of "discrimination." The guidelines also stated that "derogatory use of the term 'illegal alien,' and discrimination based on limited English proficiency are unlawful discriminatory treatment."

    Just what we've been waiting for. Actually, I pay quite a lot of attention to what our pets produce for the same reasons and it makes sense.

    That said, I don't need my refrigerator text messaging me to tell me to buy milk and I definitely don't need commentary from my porcelain pal. Internet of Things indeed............

    The New AI Toilets Will Scan Your Poop To Diagnose Your Ailments

    The New AI Toilets Will Scan Your Poop To Diagnose Your Ailments [​IMG]

    Well, it’s sounds weird but in the upcoming future, your toilet will be your mini doctor. A company called Micron is developing a smart artificial intelligence-powered toilet that will reportedly be able to diagnose your state of health and risk of disease by analyzing your bodily waste.

    The major goal of this technology is to analyze bowel movements and recognize the signs for health issues or ailments early on. This information will also use to understand the early symptoms of certain diseases.

    “Medicine is going toward precision medicine and precision health,” said Sanjay Mehrotra, he is the Chief Executive of Memory Chipmaker Micron Technology.

    “Imagine smart toilets in the future that will be analyzing human waste in real-time every day. You don’t need to be going to visit a physician every six months. If any sign of disease starts showing up, you’ll be able to catch it much faster because of urine analysis and stool analysis.” he added.

    The smart toilet is able to perform, fecal analysis and urine analysis. These are two of the most commonly-used conventional tests to determine the well-being of a patient.

    The fecal analysis help diagnose certain conditions affecting the digestive tract and the urine analysis is one major way to find certain illnesses in their earlier stages like Kidney disease, Liver disease, Diabetes.


    By analyzing human waste in real-time, it could be possible to generate true improvements for a person’s health care. The researcher believes that having their stool analyzed could be an excellent way that they could make sure they can have any signs of trouble spotted early on.

    You will surprise to know that the poop is more made up of bacterias than old food. Around 50 to 80 % of your poop is actually bacteria that had been in your intestines and was then ejected as food passed through.

    Solid and liquid bodily waste is made up of all kinds of byproducts from bodily processes such as digestion and detoxification. The concentrations of these chemical compounds can show if there is anything amiss.

    Certain precursors for disease or serious ailment can be caught in stool samples.

    With built-in stool analysis within a toilet, it’s possible that urine and stool analysis could take place in an ongoing sense leading to massive improvements in health and wellness for people worldwide.

    The medicine on board with one of these toilets could have a series of sensors that could spot patterns. The AI systems can spot everything from diabetes symptoms to checking into the cause of various dietary concerns.

    Having an ongoing analysis or diagnosis could take place onboard any smartphone or tablet device, and this could lead to people taking an active role in their health almost every day.

    The company currently developing this technology has a high demand for some of its other products.

    They are currently developing everything from hand-held smartphones to large-scale data centers which can all be of use for building the future of their technology.

    As future smartphone devices continue to be developed in this system, it could be only a matter of time before we start to see revolutionary healthcare improvements from appliances that we would regularly use every day.

    The interesting AI and diagnosis technology can help to improve the ability of any diagnosis and for making sure that we can consciously take a better approach to our healthcare no matter what our habits typically dictate.


    Below are a few surprising facts about poop
    • Along with landing on the moon, Neil Armstrong also left four bags of poop behind.
    • Bill Gates helped fund the creation of “Poop Water,” which is feces turned into water.
    • You can see corn in your poop because of cellulose
    • The ideal poop is a “continuous log” and sinks to the bottom of the toilet
    • Poop is brown because of dead red blood cells and bile
    • Gut bacteria and plant fiber are essential for a good poop

    Perhaps the Supreme Court needs to be involved since Nancy Pelosi is conducting an impeachment inquiry without holding a full house vote to authorize it in the first place, which is the first time in history this has happened...So essentially this is an attempt to prevent Republicans or Independents from subpoenaing witnesses to ask questions or be involved at all...

    This is not Democracy, this is far worse...

    They have already lost and know it and you're right, this is the reaction to that. Steve Bannon who? We'll see about HC. If that's their heavy hitter we're in for a rough but fun ride. She's pissed enough that she may actually explode on stage.

    We going to get back to kids in cages and health care at some point?

    When enough time has passed for history to take a look at all this without the 'emotional contagion' (thanks @Wade ) no one will stand accused of deferring to the better angels of their nature. At least no one's been thrown a beat down on the Senate floor. Yet anyway.

    Raise your hand if you actually READ the goddamned transcript of the phone call. I suspect most haven't.

    I think all corporations should stay out of politics...

    Chinese newspaper issues a warning to global brands to 'stay out of politics' or risk consumer boycott amid NBA row over Houston Rockets' GM tweeting his support for anti-communist Hong Kong protesters

    In China, the NBA is a billion dollar franchise with millions of fans. All that could not be in jeopardy thanks to the country's no-holds-barred reaction to Morey's tweet.

    The Global Times article defended its position and said it was 'ridiculous' to suggest Morey was entitled to free speech.

    'The incident shows an expanding worldwide culture gap.

    'Imagine if Morey publicly tweeted support for the Beijing and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government, would rioters in Hong Kong smash up Rockets' logos in the city?

    Morey has neither the IQ nor the EQ to talk about political topics

    'Commercial and cultural organizations which engage in transnational operations should manage their attitudes and statements over sensitive issues. Impulsive words can easily trigger a backlash.

    'As the general manager of the Rockets, Morey shoulders the main responsibility for the marketing of his team, but he invited trouble on himself and offended the public on the Chinese mainland. His professional capability is simply too poor.'

    It went on: 'Some Americans try to link Morey's tweet with so-called "freedom of speech." That is ridiculous.

    'Morey does have the freedom to praise Hong Kong protesters, just like the Chinese fans also have the freedom to abandon the Rockets.

    Mayor of Las Margaritas in Mexico was tied to a truck and dragged along the streets by angry villagers after he failed to fulfill his campaign promises. Villagers decided to punish him as he had not carried out road repairs.
