This allowed the researchers to train their AI with 45,000 years of gameplay within ten months of real-time...
The team had set up 63 trap nests around crop fields: these are a bit like those bee hotels that you can build in your backyard... Over the spring and summer of 2017 and 2018, the team checked their trap nests monthly to look for signs of bee activity. They only found three nests the bees used. Two were built with mud and petals, and five healthy adult bees emerged from them. The third had three cells entirely constructed out of plastic, carefully cut into oblong and oval shapes by the bee, and arranged in an overlapping manner. The first two cells were constructed of thin, light blue plastic, similar to a plastic shopping bag. The third cell was made of thicker white plastic.

Rhyan Glezman, 34, a pastor in small-town Michigan, said he was inundated by death threats and hate mail when stories surfaced this month claiming he was a bigot who had fallen out with his younger brother Chasten when Chasten came out of the closet... Glezman was particularly angered, he added, by accounts suggesting the family was poor and that Chasten went without as he was growing up. It was little more than an example of playing the “victim card” for political gain. “The story makes it look as if he came from nothing, a poor family,” he said. “Chasten had everything, from cellphones paid for, car insurance paid for.”

...Biden told a Delaware weekly newspaper in 1975. “I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather.I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation.
