No Labels organization (www.nolabels.org)

"No Labels is the voice for the New Center, for the tens of millions of Americans who believe it’s time to push back against the extremists on both sides who are making it virtually impossible to govern our country. We are a movement of Problem Solvers who believe being principled and pragmatic are not mutually exclusive ideas; who may tilt right or left but who won’t be held hostage to ideology or party dictates." https://www.nolabels.org/

"Otherizing" Democrats and Republicans

Politics "otherizes" democrat and republicans, although we all know people personally who don't fit our perception of the other party. We recommend Elizabeth Lesser's TED talk "Take "the other" to lunch" https://www.ted.com/speakers/elizabeth_lesser.

ASI|Artificial Super Intelligence

ASI, short for Artificial Super Intelligence, is a new discipline creating artificial intelligence that can learn, reason, plan, integrate, communicate, self-replicate, and sense. The development of artificial super intelligence with "recursive self-improvement" may have repercussions so great and so complex that it may not be possible to forecast what will come afterwards, as the intelligence would be able to improve upon itself with greater capacity and rapid development beyond human control.

CRISPR Technology

CRISPR, short for "clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats" is genome editing technology with a wide scope of possibilities as well as significant ethical concerns. The technology allows permanent modifications of genes within an organism. Applications include medicine and crop seed modifications. Bioethical concerns are that it can be used for germline editing.

ISP Data-Sharing

What does the new ISP data-sharing rollback actually change? Congress shot down the FCC’s internet privacy rules and created much confusion over what Americans should expect when it comes to online privacy. Previously internet providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T were prevented from sharing your web browsing history with other companies, now the door is open for far more aggressive data-sharing.

Net Neutrality

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai plans to roll back net neutrality, one of the most controversial items up for consideration at the agency. Should internet service providers be allowed to speed up access to popular websites paying higher rates at the expense of slowing down access to less popular websites paying lower rates?

Trump's Presidency

Is Trump's presidency helping America?

Whether you are a democrat, a republican, or an independent, Donald Trump is currently the President of the United States, and we should measure his proposed policies on their merit and value to American citizens, not along party lines. Do you think Trump's presidency is helping America?
