Within 5 years you will be able to speak into the latest SMART phone (with internet access and an appropriate app) and it will translate immediately into voice, in any other major language, AND in your own voice style.
It won't be able to handle translation into Norfolk. This is too complex for the machine learning algorithm.
I new my French GCSE was a waste of time.
My other prediction is we will beat West Brom in front of a raucous home crowd on Friday, despite them having on paper a squad from a completely different level to our own.
Borussia Dortmund In 1996, Lambert was signed by Borussia Dortmund following his performances against the club whilst playing for Motherwell. Hitzfeld immediately changed Lambert's role to deploy him as a defensive midfielder.
In the 1997 UEFA Champions League Final against Juventus, he played in midfield to quell the influence of Juve's French playmaker Zinedine Zidane. Lambert’s cross also set up Karl-Heinz Riedle's opening goal as Dortmund won 3–1. Lambert's contribution has since been lauded as a Man of the Match performance. He became the first British person to win the European Cup with a non-UK team, and the first British person to win the tournament since its reformation as the Champions League in 1992. Lambert had scored in the lead up to the final with a goal in the group stage, the first in a 2–2 draw at Widzew Łódź. Lambert's performance in the semi-final elimination of Manchester United was praised in the autobiography of Roy Keane. Lambert scored one league goal for Dortmund, against Bayer Leverkusen.
And yet like the classic junta he claims it is the media who is lying:
“There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame...” Trump, Twitter
But the media haven’t lied; yes they are a little partisan in their reporting - but there are no falsehoods.
And yet he has insighted a hatred of the media and any who oppose him... to the point where letter bombs are sent from an unhinged supporter, just check out the hatred towatds CNN insighted here and indeed the actual bomber himself at a Trump rally:
The other tactic of a autocrat is to demonise a group and to stoke fear in the electorate. Trump has used this tactic many times. He’ll white wash mass shootings as they don’t suit his agenda. But immigrants are fair game and perfect for his electoral strategy. The Central American caravan is perfect he is demonising at will - “100 ISIS fighters” which reporters on the ground state is a lie. And yet his regime mouthpiece Fox News repeat the claim. He then sends 1000s of troops to stoke fear, despite the caravan being months away and Mexico potentially offering sanctuary.
Now what if he does well in the mid terms - does that mean the American people are buying into this? As the economy falters (the go to argument for Trump apologisers) from momentum built under Obama how extreme will Trumps methods be, and how many will he have ‘radicalised’, how deep will the divisions in America be?!?
Rant over! (This is inspired by helping my son with his history homework and the Nazi party methods)
Well crazy times at Portman Road; our normally poorly advised owner throws the dice once again.
Feel sorry for Hurst, I think there is a good manager in there but he was let down by players who had forgotten how to be dynamic and pass, senior players making errors, and he let himself down with not respecting perhaps the step up in club in terms of management style for him and his assistant, not fighting for budget, making too much change, and thinking the league was easier and could accommodate his style and lower league playing personnel in one Big Bang update. Ultimately he also didn’t stick to his convictions on team selection and style - and began to chop and change and play square pegs in round holes.
Hurst has to go after the QPR performance. There were some good 20-30mins passages of play under him; and I still think Jackson, Nolan and Toto can be good acquisitions for this club. Villa and Swansea were great and let’s take that as a sign Hurst could get the performance he wanted for the team.
For me Jack Ross was the right guy for us; he would have hit exactly the same issues as Hurst, especially if Waghorn or a good quality replacement were unavailable. Hursts one up front, sit back and then High press to turnover may have ultimately grated with Town fans; as did Micks turgid but more effective style. Hurst indeed never got the High press going. Ross I felt was more the people manager, a more progressive style and would have integrated with Klug and the U23 project more effectively. But I’m guessing. Evans had already decided on Hurst, advised by Mick and his other advisors that the Shrews guy was the right man - despite the red flags on playing style.
As for Lambert and his assistant I don’t give a flying feck about their Norwich connection. Who cares. Is he the right man to save us from relegation and to progress us forward in terms of attacking football and bringing through youth.
Well he seems a very ‘non-people’ person. But he has real pedigree - both his playing days at Dortmund, and his great success at clubs like Norwich and Colchester. Let’s not forget his Col U side played Norwich so off the park... some effectively - That they poached him illegally.
At Villa he brought through youth so effectively he was praised by Hansen as a potential manager of the year. He made Stoke briefly rally.
But there are question marks, supposed falling out with players, a switch to a more defensive style, and using old pros rather than youth.... he didn’t quite kick on after Norwich success at Villa. He’s going to be a bit marmite with fans given his style of management.
But for me.... he has pedigree than I thought we could attract. He is more technical than Mick and could play a pleasing style - but much will depend on what he can get out of the current squad and the January transfer budget. And of course can he bring ALL the players along on the journey.
Just some thoughts - would love a Harry from Bath straw poll of former clubs fans view!!
The environment needs trillions of dollars of ‘investment’ to halt global warming, stop air and plastics pollution, save marine life, endangered species, and to make a shift to population stabilisation not growth.
And yet we’re looking at a new build up of nuclear warheads..... crazy days people.
Ironically as the population creaks and the world struggles to sustain mankind.. the friction between nations who remain focussed on their own health not the worlds - may lead to these weapons actually being used!!
Has Marcus Evans been hiring the UN leadership team recently??
A man who says it as it is, who bases ones judgement on what he sees, and not his prejudices or predetermined bias, who remains calm and pragmatic whilst emotions rage, well....... then that is a man of integrity!
But perhaps why my support is hanging on... Villa's squad is worth 110m... whereas ours is values at 20m......
And to be honest 20m sounds a little high to me... especially as our highest values Jon Walters is now out for the season, and Knudsen at 1.5m as our next highest, is actually as effective on the left side as a chocolate fireguard
Give Hurst a chance people... who else are we going to get with that quality!!
