Google may one day be able to predict when you’ll die years in advance. The firm has created an AI that it claims is 95 per cent accurate in predicting whether hospital patients will pass away 24 hours after admission. This is around 10 per cent better than traditional models.

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: My son Calvin and I had a great talk yesterday while swimming in the ocean, and we discussed how computer technology and AI has radically changed our way of life. So much so that I could not help but think of what the angel Gabriel said to the prophet Daniel about how a sudden and dramatic increase in knowledge is a signal that you are in the end times. Think about it, for roughly the first 5,850 years of human life on this planet, modes of transportation and communication remained virtually unchanged. Then, without warning, in the late 19th century going into the 20th century, it was as if scientists and inventors suddenly had their heads filled with new ideas, with understanding of complex formulas and problem-solving skills showing up virtually all by themselves. How do you explain going from nearly six thousand years of traveling by horse and oxcart to, in the blink of an eye, watching the train, the car, the airplane, the jet engine, and the space ship all showing up in less than 100 years? One One answer to that question. 

To make its predictions, the Google software uses data such as patient’s ethnicity, age, gender, previous diagnoses, lab results and vital signs. But what makes it so powerful is that it includes data previously thought out of reach of machines, such as doctor notes buried in PDFs or scribbled on old charts.

As well as death, AI can also predict unplanned readmissions within 30 days and  probable length of stay at a hospital.  The system is still in its infancy, but Google believes it could someday be used to predict death far longer in advance.

The AI was developed in collaboration with colleagues at UC San Francisco, Stanford Medicine and The University of Chicago Medicine.

To test the system, Google obtained de-identified data of 216,221 adults, with more than 46 billion data points between them. After studying the data, the AI was able to identify which words were associated closest with outcomes.

While the results have not been validated, Google claims huge improvements over traditional models. The biggest benefit, researchers claim, is the ability for the system to use all types of data. Nigam Shah, an associate professor at Stanford University told Bloomberg that as much as 80 per cent of the time spent on predictive models goes to making the data presentable. ‘With Google you can throw in the kitchen sink and not have to worry about it,’ Shah said.

In a written statement, Google research scientist and medical doctor Alvin Rajkomar MD said: ‘When patients get admitted to a hospital, they have many questions about what will happen next. When will I be able to go home? Will I get better? Will I have to come back to the hospital? Predicting what will happen next is a natural application of machine learning.’

Google’s tool can predict a range of patient outcomes, including the length of a patient’s stay in hospital as well as their chances of readmission.

For each prediction, a deep learning model reads all the data-points in electronic health records, from earliest to most recent, and then learns which data helps to predict the outcome. The final results showed impressive accuracy.

Where 1.00 is perfect, and 0.50 is no better than random chance, Google’s AI scored the following: 0.86 in predicting if patients would stay long in the hospital, compared to 0.76 using traditional methods; 0.95 in predicting inpatient mortality, compared to traditional methods at 0.86; they 0.77 in predicting unexpected readmissions after patients are discharged, compared to traditional methods at 0.70.

The full findings of the study were published in the Nature partner journal Digital Medicine. source

The LGBTQIA+ Christian Church Now Has Their Own Queer Hymnal Called ‘Songs For The Holy Other’ That Makes God A Sinner And A Liar

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A queer affirming hymnal called ‘Songs For The Holy Other’ is helping LGBTQIA+ Christians keep the faith, but what faith exactly is that?

I want you to imagine for a moment a Christian church that, say, served alcohol to their members instead of coffee, what be wrong with that? It would be in violation of scriptures like Proverbs 20:1 (KJB) that tells you drinking alcohol will deceive you and should be avoided at all costs. Imagine a Christian church that promoted violence, it would be in violation of scripture like Romans 12:18 (KJB) that tells us to live peaceably with all men, and allow God to have vengeance, not you. Now imagine a Christian church that took the music to beloved hymns and wrote new lyrics to promote the idea that God affirms the queer lifestyle in spite of the fact of scripture like Romans 1:21-32 (KJB) that absolutely condemns it. You would make God a sinner and a liar like you. The new hymnal ‘Songs For The Holy Other’ does exactly that.

“Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.” Romans 7:13 (KJB)

When I read the Bible, I clearly see that God has provided salvation through His Son Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection for any and all people who desire to be saved. But part of what salvation is is acknowledging that you are a sinner who is against God by your very existence, and that you need to become born again as Jesus commands. There is no such thing as an LGBTQIA+ Christian Church because the Bible clearly declares that lifestyle to be 100% in opposition to God. Just read Genesis 19:1-17 (KJB) or Jude 1:7 (KJB) to see how God feels about the lifestyle of Sodom and Gomorrah. There is no ‘holy other’, God alone is holy, and if you want God you must be born again and start battling your sin, not embracing it.

‘Songs for the Holy Other’ was compiled by a committee of Hymn Society members representing seven denominations and a wide range of sexualities and gender identities.

FROM CNN: Jeannette Lindholm knows the feeling. The professor and hymn writer based in Salem, Massachusetts was raised in an evangelical Christian church, surrounded by music. “Hymns have a powerful influence on theology and how people understand and experience the divine,” she says. Except, her early years of faith were marred by a strong dissonance. To her hometown congregation, and even to her family, Lindholm’s sexuality was a sin in need of healing, an aberration to be tolerated at best. But Lindholm didn’t want to be tolerated. She wanted to be loved.

“I profoundly believe in the healing power of love and grace,” she said. “I didn’t want to abandon my faith.”

Instead, she dedicated her life to studying music, feminism and theology. She absorbed other religious perspectives. She fell in love with her now-wife, Chris, and found a faith community that believed what she had all along: That divine love has no qualifications, and to be different is a blessing. Two of Lindholm’s works are featured in “Songs for the Holy Other,” a collection of LGBTQ-affirming hymns compiled by the Hymn Society, a 100-year-old institution for religious music. First published in 2019, the collection has proven to be a unique resource for churches who fully celebrate queer believers.

“The title, Songs for the Holy Other, is a self-conscious claiming of otherness as holy and beloved of God,” the project’s mission statement reads.

LGBTQ Christians, faith leaders and allies know how important this perception is — to see otherness celebrated in this powerful form of song, and to be considered necessary in a community instead of just tolerated.

“Songs for the Holy Other” was compiled by a committee of Hymn Society members representing seven denominations and a wide range of sexualities and gender identities. Through submission calls and good old word-of-mouth, the committee chose 45 texts from more than 160 songs and hymns, paying specific attention to works that weren’t already widely available.

The result is an alchemy of tradition. Historically, hymns have been written to fit with different, familiar tunes to make them easier and more enjoyable for people to sing. That practice continues here, with some recently written works like “A Hymn for Self-Acceptance,” “God of Queer, Transgressive Spaces” and “Impartial, Compassionate God” being paired with melodies familiar to many churchgoers.

SOULBOUND? The Longer That It Matures And Grows, The More That Cryptocurrency Seems To Have In Common With The Coming Mark Of The Beast

Soulbound tokens, cryptocurrency and a social credit system sure sounds to me like the whole world is gearing up to receive the Mark of the Beast

Last time I checked, a ‘crypt’ was where they put the dead bodies, so a ‘cryptocurrency’ would be money that is connected with dead things. Cryptocurrency has become huge over the pandemic, amazing coincidence I know, and now the founder of one of the world’s largest tech platforms for crypto is now rolling out something called a ‘soulbound token’ that will attached with the death money. Are you still waiting for the end times to start? Better hurry, you are 801 days behind the curve at the moment.

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:17 (KJB)

I did not use Habakkuk 1:5 for my theme verse in this article, but I sure could have when you consider how this is all playing out right in front of your face, and amazingly, almost no one seems to notice. Prolly because they are just a tad distracted with the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, or the recent school shooting, or the latest artificial race riot, or mix and match a list yourself from a seemingly endless lineup of distractions up to and including COVID, smallpox and monkeypox. In the meantime, you can jump in the Metaverse and put your death money into your Soul so you can store your soulbound tokens as you await Antichrist who will give you the Mark of the Beast so you can keep buying and selling.

Your whole identity could soon live in ‘Soulbound tokens’ on web3, Ethereum’s co-founder says

FROM FORTUNE: Early this month, Vitalik Buterin co-authored a paper outlining his vision for a “decentralized society” (DeSoc) where individuals accrue a permanent record of merits and attributes that are stored in private blockchain wallets as non-tradable crypto assets.

The writers dub those achievement badges ‘soulbound tokens’ also known as SBTs

“Imagine a world where most participants have Souls [digital wallets] that store SBTs corresponding to a series of affiliations, memberships, and credentials,” the authors write, suggesting that their idea for SBTs could resemble something of a Web3-based CV.

“For example, a person might have a Soul that stores SBTs representing educational credentials, employment history, or hashes of their writings or works of art,” the paper says.

Unlike a non-fungible token (NFT), which is a collectible digital asset that can be traded or sold, SBTs are designed to be untradable—a little more like a Boy Scout badge than a baseball card. According to the paper, an individual would gain SBTs from other Souls within the decentralized society. A university, for example, might issue SBTs to its alumni to verify that they have graduated from that school.

To be clear, that also means SBTs aren’t really going to replace NFTs. The two digital assets, theoretically, serve different functions. While an NFT is designed to be tradable and act as a financial asset, an SBT, Buterin suggests, is supposed to serve as a proof of character, rather than a proof of wealth.

But as the authors attest, there are major dangers to the proposal.

For starters, the whole thing sounds similar to China’s idea of building a social credit system that would supposedly punish citizens for demonstrating bad ideological behavior. Since SBTs are issued to individuals without their consent, the system could be used to brand “scarlet letters” on people, making the technology an ideal tool for authoritarian states.

A society built on SBTs could even reinforce discrimination indirectly. A database of SBTs could provide a marker to “automate red-lining of disfavored social groups or even target them for cyber or physical attack, enforce restrictive migration policies, or make predatory loans,” the authors write. For that reason, Buterin and his coauthors consider individuals might need the option to “burn” or hide their SBTs from the public, choosing to reveal them only when necessary. READ MORE

On Day 800 Of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve We Have The Worst School Shooting Since Sandy Hook, With Much More On Deck And Ready To Go

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos killed 19 children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school barricaded himself inside a classroom, “shooting anyone that was in his way,” an official said Wednesday, describing the latest in a gruesome, years-long series of mass killings at churches, schools and stores.

It is mind boggling to me, as the overtly obvious spirit of Antichrist continues to sweep across America, manifesting itself yesterday in a horrific school shooting in Texas where 19 students and two teachers were killed, that the debate is about gun control. Taking away guns will no more stop mass shootings than Prohibition stopped the consumption of alcohol, or that the “Just Say No!” campaign prevented drug use. What we have here is a spiritual problem, and in a nation that is spiritually dead, that’s a pretty big problem. We told you 800 days ago this wasn’t going to stop, believe us now?

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17 (KJB)

So here we are, on Day 800 of 15 Days To Flatten the Curve, watching the Abraham Accords moving Israel ever closer to the Two State Solution, headlines screaming ‘Monkeypox!’, gas prices the highest in American history, baby formula shortages, a crashing stock market with an economy being eaten alive by inflation, a president that cannot string even simple sentences together, does anyone even remember what a conspiracy theory is any more? Pray for the families in Uvalde, Texas, that their souls would be comforted by the Lord, and that many Christians would be able to minister to them there. But pray for yourselves, also, as the spirit of Antichrist continues to prepare the way for his soon arrival, that we who are saved will be able to get something done for Jesus Christ in the midst of this end times chaos.

Details emerge on Texas school shooter Salvador Ramos’ behavior before massacre

FROM THE NY POST: The gunman who slaughtered 19 kids and two teachers at a Texas elementary school reportedly exhibited increasingly bizarre behavior leading up to the rampage – including cutting up his face with knives just “for fun,” friends said.

Gunman Salvador Ramos’ friend Santos Valdez Jr., 18, said that the two had been close, playing video games and basketball regularly, until his friend’s behavior began to “deteriorate,” The Washington Post reported.

At one point, he recounted, Ramos showed up at a park with scratch marks across his face and said he had been attacked by a cat.

“Then he told me the truth, that he’d cut up his face with knives over and over and over,” Valdez told the newspaper “I was like, ‘You’re crazy, bro, why would you do that?’” he said. Ramos told him it was just “for fun,” Valdez said.

The friend said he last interacted with Ramos just two hours before the attack at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.

The two messaged on Instagram, where Valdez reshared a meme that said, “WHY TF IS SCHOOL STILL OPEN,” according to the Washington Post, which reported that Ramos replied, “Facts” and “That’s good tho right?” READ MORE
