offsite link New OpenAI Chatbot Displays Clear Political Bias Thu Dec 08, 2022 09:00 | Noah Carl
The new OpenAI chat bot behaves in a remarkably human-like way. But researcher David Rozado has found that it displays substantial political bias. This is no small matter, given how influential it is likely to be.

The latest data show a 33% fall in the cyclone energy index, which reflects frequency, intensity and duration of all hurricanes and tropical cyclones. Curiously, this fact has gone missing in the mainstream media.

Strep A infections blamed on lockdown immunity debt have now killed more children than Covid did during 2020 ? children whose childhoods were already stunted by restrictions imposed on them to protect fearful adults.

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla was found by the medicine regulator to have misled the public over the Covid vaccine, yet will be fined just a few thousand pounds. The system is broken and needs an overhaul, says Dr Alan Black.

Never ending saga of responses isn’t planning – it’s a mess

category cork | environment | press release author Friday September 22, 2017 12:26author by CHASE - Cork Harbour Alliance for a Safe Environment. Report this post to the editors

Bord Pleanala have, in ’the interests of natural justice’ invited Indaver to respond to observations responding to Indaver’s additional material specific to flight paths and erroneous dioxin figures submitted at the invitation of Bord Pleanala in response to issues exposed at the 2016 Oral Hearing despite Indaver having being given opportunity to answer those issues in depth at the Oral Hearing. Indaver have four weeks from the advice letter dated 5 September to respond.

Bord Pleanala have, in ’the interests of natural justice’ invited Indaver to respond to observations responding to Indaver’s additional material specific to flight paths and erroneous dioxin figures submitted at the invitation of Bord Pleanala in response to issues exposed at the 2016 Oral Hearing despite Indaver having being given opportunity to answer those issues in depth at the Oral Hearing. Indaver have four weeks from the advice letter dated 5 September to respond.

A spokesperson for CHASE said “Really?”

Among observations submitted to Bord Pleanala to which Indaver is now invited to respond was material which showed Indaver to be starving the standard model man ( http://chasecorkharbour.com/new-material-observations/ ) in order to meet EU dioxin intake limits as well as a grossly underestimated helicopter plume risk zone. A letter submitted from the Department of Defence has requested specific assurances that risk to helicopters from the plume be contained within 150m from the stack in all conditions. Read Letter… see image

According to the Bord’s Strategic Infrastructure Development flowchart, should material submitted by Indaver contain “significant additional information on the environment, Board will make information available and invite further submissions”. ( Ref: http://www.pleanala.ie/sid/flowchart.pdf )

This is gone far beyond a comedy of responses. The application was lodged in January 2016 with a decision due under Strategic Infrastructure Application guidelines by mid-July 2016. This is the 5th deferral, the zoning of the site is no longer industrial having been earmarked for educational and research use in July 2017 ( http://www.eveningecho.ie/corknews/Indaver-incinerator-...32-ds ) under Local Area Plans which are now operational, while Bord Pleanala’s website currently quotes a 6th deadline ( http://www.pleanala.ie/casenum/PA0045.htm ) date of 27 October 2017.

What a mess.
