Domestic violence awareness month
« on: October 21, 2015, 04:06:54 am »
Every 9 seconds in America a woman is being physically abused or assaulted.

Every day three women are killed by domestic violence.

The number of domestic violence deaths was double the number of soldier deaths during the *war of Iraq* in the same time frame.

2-4 million women are abused each year in America.
The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. [...] The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most.--Elon Musk

I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence," [Bill] Gates wrote. "First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don\'t understand why some people are not concerned."

Quote from: Juniperberry;181310


 
Here is a list of charities that help out victims of domestic violence.

And here are some resources about domestic violence against men, because it does happen to men, too.
"There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." - Hemingway
