Did You Know We Are Heading Into The Third Anniversary?

This so saddens me that I’ve contemplated suicide. (Not really)

Then I remember, all I have to do is call her at her home in Chappaqua, and she will believe me, as long as I agree to turn over my entire estate to the Clinton Crime Foundation.

My children and grandchildren be damned, isn’t life grand when you take time and pause, to think about it?

I’m sorry, you have reached a disconnected number please buy our book on 100 hundred ways to commit suicide, most of which are painless here.

Don’t even think about committing suicide, call a friend, seek immediate help, put the gun away, you will just be adding to Diane Feinstein’s lies about gun ownership.

Does the reader believe in coincidence? I don’t!

The Clinton’s are psychopaths and pathological killers.

Imagine, Hillary without just here evil glare but pointing a gun at you!

They have killed or arranged to have killed too many to count and they are likely not finished yet.

Anyone who got in their way or could disturb their narrative created a shovel ready job.

The first 50 seconds of the video below are black, move the space bar at the bottom and you will get into the wording.

Perhaps there is no other song that pictures suicide?

THAT’S THE TRUTH

Artificial Intelligence Can Predict if You’ll Die Soon But We’ve No Idea How it Works

Comment by Jim Campbell

November 12th, 2019

It’s nice to see that the research will be presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in Dallas on November 16.

That way it will receive peer review and be shot down if need be.

Studies by the tobacco companies about cigarettes were a complete joke, smoking is absolutely one of the ways an individual can develop lung cancer.

By its very nature, a scientific endeavor must be prospective, meaning the scientist doesn’t know the results in advance.

By the writer’s own admission, they used a retrospective analysis, an anathema to everything that true science holds dear.

Seriously, how could artificial intelligence predict death from a car crash, being struck by lightning, becoming a Democrat, being shot to death, the list goes on?

How can anyone trust Google when people who work there and have worked there admit Google can’t be trusted?

Artificial intelligence can predict a person’s chances of dying within a year by looking at heart test results – even when they look normal to doctors.

How it does so is a mystery.

Brandon Fornwalt at healthcare provider Geisinger in Pennsylvania, US and colleagues tasked an AI with examining 1.77 million electrocardiogram (ECG) results from nearly 400,000 people to predict who was at a higher risk of dying within the next year.

An ECG records the electrical activity of the heart. Its pattern changes in cardiac conditions including heart attacks and atrial fibrillation.

The team trained two versions of the AI: in one, the algorithm was only given the raw ECG data, which measures voltage over time. In the other, it was fed ECG data in combination with patient age and sex.

They measured the AI’s performance using a metric known as AUC, which measures how well a model distinguishes between two groups of people – in this case, patients who died within a year and those who survived.

The AI consistently scored above 0.85, where a perfect score is 1 and a score of 0.5 indicates no distinction between the two groups.

The AUCs for risk scoring models currently used by doctors range between 0.65 and 0.8, says Fornwalt.

Artificial intelligence is improving the way humans think

For comparison, the researchers also created an algorithm based on ECG features that doctors currently measure, such as certain patterns from the recordings.

“No matter what, the voltage-based model was always better than any model you could build out of things that we already measure from an ECG,” says Fornwalt.

The AI accurately predicted risk of death even in people deemed by cardiologists to have a normal ECG. Three cardiologists who separately reviewed normal-looking ECGs weren’t able to pick up the risk patterns that the AI detected.

“That finding suggests that the model is seeing things that humans probably can’t see, or at least that we just ignore and think are normal,” says Fornwalt.

“AI can potentially teach us things that we’ve been maybe misinterpreting for decades,” he says.

It’s still unclear what patterns the AI is picking up, which makes some physicians reluctant to use such algorithms.

This research was based on historical data, and it will be important to demonstrate in clinical studies that such an algorithm improves patient outcomes, says collaborator Christopher Haggerty.

The research will be presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in Dallas on November 16.

Army’s new recruiting ads focus less on combat roles

Comment by Jim Campbell

November 12th, 2019

This makes complete sense from an educational standpoint.

Of course, the media didn’t want the reader to know that President Trump is cutting the size of our military in anticipation of not being on a military footing.

If it is anticipated that a war or skirmish is on the immediate horizon, the number of troops can and will be adjusted at the commander-in-chief’s discretion.

For many, going to the University is a waste of time, think, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

Also, the military allows for career advancement of the individual chooses to continue re-upping.

Military pay will astound you. (See Here)

It’s great to see that we pay our military so well.

One of the five soldiers highlighted in the ad campaign is Captain Erika Alvarado, 34, an Army Reservist who leads a Cyber Protection Team.

Focusing on non-combat roles will get the attention of younger potential recruits, Alvarado said.

“It will definitely open their horizons and perspectives to know that it’s not just war and shooting and blowing things up,” Alvarado added.

“We have professional careers, whether it be myself, like in cyber or the medical, or engineers.”

Alvarado initially joined the Reserves as an enlisted soldier when she was 17, needing a waiver from her mother so she could join before her 18th birthday.

She later became an officer and about a year ago transitioned from being a career logistician to the cyber realm.

“I would say no matter what passion an individual has, in any type of specialty, the Army has a position for them,” she said. “And every one of them is just as important as everyone else.”

What goes for one branch of the service will likely go for all with the exception of Spec/Ops which can get in and get out of a given country and call in coordinates for airstrikes, submarines, and battleships.

“The goal is to show the breadth and depth of roles that you can play in the United States Army and how these individual roles come together to form the most powerful team on earth,” said Brig. Gen. Alex Fink, head of the Army’s enterprise marketing.

“You can be a warrior and work in cyberspace or in signals, or as a logistician.”

The ads are a big change from previous recruiting efforts “in terms of the use of colors, the use of music, the way we transition, the types of roles that we’re going to show and how we show those types of roles will be different,” Fink added.

“We want to try to do it in a way that surprises our Generation Z audience.”

The Army’s stated recruiting goal for fiscal year 2020 is 69,000 new soldiers, but a stronger economy and a shrinking pool of candidates who meet educational, health and fitness requirements have hindered that effort.

Why the United States Federal Government is too Big to do Most Anything

Comment by Jim Campbell

November 11th, 2019, Veteran’s Day

Donald Trump Has Fired, Demoted, or Suspended over 8,000 Veterans Affairs Employees Since Taking Office.

It’s during lockdowns when members of Congress can’t get along that they shut the government down temporarily.

What better way to determine who is essential or inessential?

Of course, he did, and the reader will quickly note that he made the entire system better as he promised.

Think about this for a moment because it’s our money.

One of the many problems with the members of Congress is besides being re-elected the want to have everything, as much as possible, done by a government that knowingly buys $750 toilet seats and hammers each.

Where else can an individual expect to go to work for life, for the vast majority become Democrats while failing their way to more pay each year?

In the private sector, they would have been kicked to the curb with nowhere else to go.

President Donald Trump has relieved over 8,000 Veterans Affairs employees for failing their duty since becoming the president, according to VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.

“The standard is if you don’t live up to your oath if you don’t live up to the standards that our veterans expect, that you will be asked to leave,” Wilkie told reporters in a press conference on Friday.

“This is a transformational moment in our history.”

Wilkie said accountability was a signature promise from President Trump, particularly after the Veterans Affairs scandals in Phoenix in 2014 and 2015.

Under Trump, he said, VA employees as high as network directors down to the lowest employees were removed for not performing their job to the proper standards.

“This is, I think, one of the strongest statements that we can make: That it is a new day at VA,” Wilkie said.

Trump spoke about the importance of Veterans Affairs accountability in October, during a speech on health care at The Villages in Florida.

“Do you remember all of the bad stories that used to be about the VA?” he asked. “Now you don’t see that because they have accountability. 

We can fire bad people.

We fired a tremendous number of really bad people that should’ve been fired years ago. I don’t like firing people, but I like firing people that don’t treat our vets great, that aren’t doing their job.”

Wilkie praised Trump for delivering the largest budget for the VA Department in its history and noted that the department in 2018 achieved the highest patient satisfaction rates in its history at 89.7 percent.

He also touted the success of the MISSION Act, allowing veterans the ability to have the choice to seek care in the private sector when Veterans Affairs could not give them the care that they needed.

“This puts veterans at the center of their healthcare decisions, not the institutional prerogatives of VA, but veterans,” he said.

Wilkie detailed a forthcoming national roadmap for understanding and preventing suicides and addiction, and mental health, bringing together the federal government including the Departments of Indian Health, Health, and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Department of the Defense.

He said 60 percent of veterans who committed suicide were not in Veterans Affairs care and that the roadmap would help the department was working with local organizations to find military veterans suffering from depression.

President Trump fired Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin in 2018 and replaced him with Wilkie, who was recommended to the Department by then-Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

Wilkie said it was an “honor” to serve in President Trump’s administration, praising him for putting veterans’ care at the top of his priority list.

“There has never been a President who has given this much attention to America’s veterans or allowed for more transformation to go on in the lives of veterans in this department than this President has,” he said.

Images of the great sacrifices of men and women in U.S. Military History

By Jim Campbell

November 11th, 2019

Veterans Day

A very good and long-time friend of mine wanted me to know that his mother, Lorena B, Daly was a WASP pilot, during WWII.

She chose multi-engine planes after basic flight training in early 1943 at the US Army Air Corps base in Sweetwater, TX.

She then did her instrument rating on the twin-engine C-47 transport in St Joseph, MO.

She then trained on the B-17 bomber at a USAAC base in New Jersey before being stationed at the USAAC base in Long Beach, CA.

There, she flew the B-17 bombers and other aircraft from the west coast factories all across the country, ending at the east coast.

There, the Army Air Corps crews took them “across the pond” to England for bombing runs in Europe by the 8th Air Force.

No doubt about it.

IKE talking with his troops during WWII

Great Vietnam War Songs Below:

A short video below pays tribute to our Veterans and to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch this video and to reflect upon the service and sacrifices our Veterans have endured.

The Burden of War falls on fewer men and women these days it is incumbent upon the rest of us to make an effort not to forget about them.

So to those who have made a great sacrifice, we salute you.

You are not forgotten.

There Is No Question About It The United States Military Should Be Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize

Veterans Day

There is absolutely no doubt about it.

The picture shows a Nobel Prize Medal in Stockholm, Sweden Photo: Kay Nietfeld

Those who have served in wars as conscripts or volunteers have protected our nation and Constitution far better than any members of congress ever did.

Since it is decided upon in Sweden, the only example of a truly socialist country there is little to no chance of this happening.

The military doesn’t waste its time on contemplating what is fair, they go about their jobs, doing what is asked of them.

The biggest embarrassment in Nobel Peace Prize History

A Veterans Day Special

Veterans Day November 11th, 2019

This is posted and in no way reflects negatively on the festivities of the day.

I’m of the mind that the Clintons were involved did it!

Did President Trump have him wiped out?

The President in his own magnificent way says isn’t going to answer the question but points his finger directly at the Clinton’s.

You have to love the guy if you don’t go back to sleep when you wake up you will find your self to be a Democrat.
