Activism and civil disobedience seems frowned upon here on ATS in my experience. I love the debates, but it is futile when the folk you chat with will never resist arrest or fight back. Fight for your rights is my mantra.

Hi neighbor. I'm in a surrounding county and avoid Toledo like the plague. Several shootings every week, and almost daily in the warm months. Little Detroit.

If you're in Cornwall we're basically news-buddies, Spotlight Southwest?

I can't type too much as on phone and frankly I can't stand the thing, but this is my favourite local news story at the moment;


Last week, the States backed Deputy Montfort Tadier’s proposals to allow medical professionals – including GPs – to prescribe cannabis, and Health Minister Richard Renouf has been tasked with bringing formal proposals back to the Assembly before the end of February.

The decision came after a high-profile report – the Barnes report – found evidence to support the effective use of cannabis in treatments for some illnesses.

One of the report’s co-authors, Professor Michael Barnes, is due to deliver a series of talks in the Island on Monday, including a free public talk at the Town Hall between 7 pm and 8.15 pm.

A supercomputing hub furnished with high-performance machines...



The U of A received $2.5 million Thursday from the federal government for an AI-supercomputing hub for academic and industry collaboration. The hub, linking academics and industry, will include computers that can process raw data in hours, as opposed to days, according to a news release from Western Economic Diversification Canada.

The investment builds on Edmonton’s reputation as one of the top AI research hubs in the world. Last year for example, DeepMind, Google’s London-based AI research division, announced it would set up its first international research lab in downtown Edmonton in partnership with the U of A.


Ah hell... I didn't realize Google's AI research was so close to home. That's kinda scary.

Im detecting more potential win in Jersey;

Could Medicinal Cannabis be Worth £300m to Jersey?


Chris Callaghan, the chief science officer at Jersey Hemp, says the European medicinal cannabis market is expected to be worth £30 billion within the next two years. And he says that if the Island entered the market early it is not ‘unreasonable’ to believe that Jersey could take between one and five per cent of the EU market.

Mr Callaghan, who achieved a Phd in environmental plant biochemistry and molecular biology from Newcastle University, also said that much of the infrastructure needed to grow the crop already existed in the Island left over from the flower, tomato and potato industries.

He added: ‘The pros [of growing medicinal cannabis] could see many of the dilapidated greenhouses restored to their former glory as well as retaining much of the agricultural knowledge acquired from the historical tomato and flower industries.’


I attended a talk by Professor Michael Barnes on Monday, the author of the Barnes Report on medicinal cannabis, it was almost like listening to myself speak, needless to say I like the dude
lol
