Max Plenke: Obama’s Getting Serious About The Future Of Supercomputing. Here’s Why That’s Awesome

Gird your technological loins, world: President Barack Obama is paving the way for the Usain Bolt of computers with the processing power of the human brain. A technology program called the National Strategic Computing Initiative seeks to invest heavily in high-performance hardware. The goal is to position the United States as the king of the supercomputing mountain. The speed it’s going for: one exaflop, or almost 30 times faster than the fastest computer in the world, China’s Tianhe-2, below. He’s thinking about saving the world. Or at least making it better. With an exaflop of computing power, scientists and researchers would be able to run incredibly complex and accurate simulations, like simulating the global climate to make global warming predictions.

The ability to handle a lot of data might be the supercomputer’s largest contribution. Think of all the simulations you can run: modeling aircraft, modeling guns, predicting weather anomalies or even figuring out long-term dilemmas, like what the agricultural industry’s impact will be in, say, 50 years.Medicine takes all kinds of analysis, deep dives into our DNA and biological informatics — things that take a level of computing power we’ve scratched but haven’t come close to mastering. The White House’s Precision Medicine Initiative would use high-performance computing to collect and create huge amounts of health and genomic data to tailor treatment for individuals.

    Morning, Nerdy. After last night’s post, I would like to give you a hug as well as all the love and gratitude I feel in my heart. Wish FLOTUS was around to give you a hug as well. You are such an incredibly intelligent, caring young woman and I wish the world could be a better place for you and everyone of your generation.

    THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT OF 1965

    President Obama’s Letter to the Editor

    —————————————————-

    I am where I am today only because men and women like Rosanell Eaton refused to accept anything less than a full measure of equality. Their efforts made our country a better place. It is now up to us to continue those efforts. Congress must restore the Voting Rights Act. Our state leaders and legislatures must make it easier — not harder — for more Americans to have their voices heard. Above all, we must exercise our right as citizens to vote, for the truth is that too often we disenfranchise ourselves.

      Still working on mine, GGail. Some prominent progressive Jewish rabbis and leaders in Portland met with Senator Merkley yesterday and came away very encouraged about the probability of his support. I wrote an email to all my friends in Portland asking them to call and/or write the entire Oregon Congressional delegation in support of both the Iran Deal and the Clean Power Plan. I looked up the phone numbers of all their local offices to make it easier. I hope this will move Senator Wyden into the supportive category and away from Schumer.

        Thank you for doing your part Judith ❤

      • August 12, 2015 at 12:42 pm

        Judith, too have been calling and emailing our 2 Senators and my Rep often about the Iran Deal. I will be so mad if Wyden votes against it as well if Merkley and Schrader do too.

    Democrat wins runoff for Brookhaven House seat

     11:29 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2015 | Filed in: Local News

    Former Georgia Tech quarterback Taylor Bennett defeated former Brookhaven Mayor J. Max Davis in a Tuesday runoff for the state House of Representatives, switching control of the Northern Perimeter district to a Democrat.

    Bennett captured a seat that had previously been held by Republican Mike Jacobs, who was appointed by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a judge in DeKalb County State Court.

    Bennett and Davis, a Republican, were competing in a runoff after no candidate received a majority of votes in a four-way special election last month to represent House District 80.

    Bennett will represent a district that includes parts of Brookhaven, Chamblee and Sandy Springs in DeKalb and Fulton counties.

    Bennett’s election gives Democrats control of Fulton County’s legislative delegation, where Republicans had held a 13-12 majority.

    Good morning, Nerdy
    Thank you for continuing to speak about what Matters when it is so hard to do so.

    As a white woman the most recent events—Oathkeepers, heavily armed white guys—welcomed by the Ferguson police for whom black skin is sufficient offense to warrant an arrest leave me angry and without confidence in a near time solution. And hesitant to add my voice
    Ferguson (!) back in the news after a week spent reading, rereading, and thinking about Ta-nehisi Coates’ best-seller.

    Ta-Nehisi explains what DeRay is tweeting about. The violation of black people’s bodies—or as DeRay puts it weaponizing black skin is the underlying basic problem we will have to confront.

    What is happening is crazy as Eric said last night. However Crazy is not the stubborn core of what ails us.

    White wealth is based on and always has been wrung from the exploitation of powerless people.
    Nothing newsbreaking there.
    Ta-nehisi takes this idea forward and says that our system of racial injustice is fueled by our addiction to profit and plunder.
    Built by slaves on land stolen from a subjugated and harassed unto death native population, railroad pathways hewn from rocks split open by imported slave labor from China. The inglorious history of profit over people.

    White wealth is addicted to plunder.
    Wealth will protect itself.

    The best response as far as I can see is increased attention to registration of all of us and voter participation.
    HRC is advocating all 18 year olds automatically registered on their 18th birthday. With the option for them to opt out. I agree.
    Bernie is advocating for Election Day to be a national Holiday. I agree.
    Oregon, I think it was OR has recently started voting by mail, joining CO, was it? Good move.
    Adding a Sunday voting day in addition to the Tuesday? Yes, good idea.

    If we are able to better educate our country and get all of us to vote, I see change is possible. Keeping in mind that we will be bucking a system and media that intend to spread ignorance and fear.

    Jeb! is again trying to sell the LIE that PBO chose to leave Iraq. No, Fool, your brother signed the Status of Forces Agreement that forced us out.

    What AMK said late last night about the GOP WH will begin Apartheid America is accurate and terrifying. That is what Israel is and what is intended for us.

    • August 12, 2015 at 10:18 am

      Oregon has had vote by mail for several election cycles now. What is new is that we have automatic voter registration at 18.

        August 12, 2015 at 11:36 am

        Yes, and Washington started vote-by-mail after we did. I t works great! No fraud because they check signatures very carefully, but if you mess up and have voted early in the two week open voting period, there is time to exchange your messed-up ballot for a clean one.

White police armed to the teeth in a blacks majority town where they arrest unarmed 12-year old black kids while looking benignly at equally armed to the teeth white vigilante thugs. All they need is that final push into WH and it’s fait accompli.

    THE BALLS ON THIS CLOWN!

    ………………………….

    Jeb Bush sees disaster in Iraq, blames Obama and Clinton
    08/12/15 08:01 AM—UPDATED 08/12/15
    08:09 AM
    By Steve Benen

    The lead sentence in Politico’s report on Jeb Bush last night read, ” Does Jeb Bush really want to refight the Iraq War?” It’s best not to rush past the question too quickly.

    The Republican presidential hopeful’s brother launched one of the most disastrous wars in American history. The 2016 candidate hopeful then surrounded himself with his brother’s team of failed foreign-policy advisers – and described his brother as his adviser on U.S. policy in the Middle East.

    One of Jeb Bush’s most cringe-worthy failures as a candidate was trying to answer a simple question about Iraq – he gave four competing answers over the course of four days – and at last week’s debate, the former governor still seemed wholly unprepared to discuss the issue.

    It’s against this backdrop that Jeb Bush decided to pick a fight – over developments in a country his brother invaded under false pretenses and then failed in every possible way to manage responsibly. The New York Times reported:

    The war in Iraq, which dominated American presidential politics in 2004 and 2008, has returned as an issue in 2016. This time, the argument is not over whether the United States should have gone to war, but rather how the Obama administration sought to end it.

    Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor seeking the Republican presidential nomination, issued a blistering attack on Tuesday on the Obama administration’s handling of Iraq and terrorism issues, asserting that Hillary Rodham Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, had “stood by” as secretary of state as the situation in Iraq deteriorated.

    Obama and Clinton, Bush insisted last night, “stood by as that hard-won victory by American and allied forces [in Iraq] was thrown away.”

    Poll: Sanders surges ahead of Clinton in NH

    A stunning new poll has Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) beating presumptive Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire.

    Sanders has eclipsed Clinton by a 44 to 37 percent margin, according to a new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll that was first reported by the Boston newspaper Tuesday evening.

    The previous FPU/Herald poll taken in March had Sanders trailing Clinton 44 to 8.

    Today’s poll is the first to show Sanders, whose liberal policies are popular with the Democratic base, ahead of Clinton in New Hampshire.

    And it comes as reports surfaced that Clinton will turn over her private email server that she used while leading the State Department to Justice Department officials.

    Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden garnered 9 percent, with the other remaining candidates hovering at around 1 percent, according to the poll

    Sanders appears to be rather like Trump – in that both are appealing to white privilege. The rest of the GOP field are anti everything that makes a society work. Without a thought for policy, Trump could well be the nominee & Sanders could not beat him.

      Knowing the power AIPAC has historically wielded in the U.S. Congress, it is unrealistic to expect 100% support for a policy Israel opposes. How the Iran Deal debate is playing out tells me Israel will find it is not as popular in the U.S. as it has been lead to believe. Bibi’s disrespectful speech before Congress had the unintended effect of making Israel a partisan issue, which has weakened Israel’s influence in this country. As for the presidential race, they call this time of year “silly season” for a reason.

    Greetings from Iowa, where “the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye” and so are all the presidential candidates running around. 🙂 I don’t know if that even equates, but there sure are a lot of ’em here. We are making our annual pilgrimage to the Iowa State State Fair this Friday, only to find that Jeb! will be there at “The Soapbox” for a speech that same day. 😦 Mr. Muscatinegal says he wants to yell at or throw something at Jeb! during his speech, but I have my doubts. Just so he doesn’t throw any of the food-on-a-stick or something deep-fried. Hopefully by next year, they will all be leaving Iowa alone and we can attend the Iowa State Fair in peace.

        I knew that but I guess I was naive enough to think that if he was making a serious run for POTUS he would understand that he needs to appeal to a wide swathe of Americans. My point, very unartfully expressed, was that if you’re serious about leading the U.S., your rhetoric has to change. But apparently in 2015/2016, the more outrageous the rhetoric, the better. He calls himself a socialist, he calls for political “revolution” and is clueless that he will be tied to Lenin, Stalin and the rest? Hey, they call PBO a radical socialist, and he’s the most reasonable, pragmatic but progressive visionary we’ve had in the WH in decades. You call him being primaried in 2012, and have done nothing to appeal to the Obama coalition?

        I don’t want chaos and “revolution” to prove my principles. I want careful progress that builds and doesn’t destroy. I don’t think Bernie gets that at all.

    Look who actually did the poll for the Boston Herald that has Bernie beating HRC in New Hampshire.

    1)Marlin Fitzwater. . Remember that name? Press Secretary to George Bush and Ronald Reagan. He’s the guy who conducted the poll for a firm called RKM Assocates.

    2) Andy Card. . He was George W. Bush’s Chief of Staff for 6 years and head of the White House Iraq Group. He is currently President of Franklin Pierce University, the group that conducted the poll.

    3) R. Kelly Myers. . Probably not a familiar name, but a fellow at the Marlin Fitzwater Center; long associated with right wing groups/funders.

      And, he means it. He and Secretary Moniz, when the history books are written, will prove to be central contributors to establishing a ‘new world order’ in the ME, as long as WE ensure that the US NEOCONSTERS are flushed from our Federal Government.
