Bill Of Rights: Mark Dice Third Amendment Video Goes Viral A new viral video by Mark Dice illustrates how quickly some California residents are to give up their Third Amendment rights. The Bill of Rights says, “No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.” Those featured in the now viral video did not appear to possess even a miniscule of understanding about the noted aspect of the Constitution – nor did they ask. Once Mark Dice told folks that by signing the petition to repeal the Third Amendment they were supporting “President Obama” or “our troops,” they quickly grabbed the pen and wrote their names.

DARPA’s new cheap robot is capable of changing apparent shape, color, temperature and more By End the Lie In nature, some organisms use bioluminescence to communicate. DARPA’s soft robot achieves the same glowing effect by pumping chemiluminescent solutions through channels in the robot’s color layer. DARPA reveals Avatar program, robot soldiers incoming DARPA, the bleeding-edge research wing of the United States Department of Defense, has revealed that it will spend millions of dollars on a project called “Avatar.” If you’ve seen the movie of the same name — the highest-grossing movie of all time — let me put your mind at rest: DARPA isn’t looking to genetically engineer blue-skinned aliens that humans can control; no, they’re developing robots. In the words of DARPA itself, the Avatar program will work on “interfaces and algorithms to enable a soldier to effectively partner with a semi-autonomous bipedal machine and allow it to act as the soldier’s surrogate.” In other words, DARPA wants to develop the walking equivalent of an unarmed aerial vehicle; a bipedal robot drone where the controlling soldier is hundreds or thousands of miles away from war front.

BINA48 BINA48, a robot owned by Martine Rothblatt's Terasem Movement, Incorporated (TMI),[6] is designed to test two hypotheses concerning the ability to download a person's consciousness into a non-biological or nanotech body after combining detailed data about a person with future consciousness software. History[edit] Hanson created BINA48 in his Plano, Texas laboratory. The robot is kept at Terasem Movement, Inc.'

The Virginia Declaration of Rights, written by George Mason, strongly influenced Madison. Terminator Robots to Take Over the Battlefield by 2023? Nicholas WestActivist Post The U.S. military's pursuit of killer robots continues to make the news, despite the concerns of major international human rights groups who have launched a campaign to stop the runaway development of robots for war.

DARPA Program Aims to Help Counselors Spot Signs of Stress, PTSD Every day, 22 veterans commit suicide—a startling number prompting experts to probe for methods to curb the national epidemic. Officials are fielding a new program, funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which can help experts assess the psychological state of troops and veterans early on and possibly get them the help needed before it’s too late. The Detection and Computational Analysis of Psychological Signals (DCAPS) program joins the growing inventory of measures to combat depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicides. It has tools to analyze facial expressions, body gestures and speech, both content and delivery, and inform experts on a user’s psychological state of mind or alert them to behavioral changes that could indicate problems. “We are now beginning to bring objective assessment to hard quantifiable data to make data-driven analysis, to come up with the indicators of distress,” explains Col.
