Read previewA former safety employee at OpenAI said the company is following in the footsteps of White Star Line, the company that built the Titanic. Was the path that OpenAI was on more like the Apollo program or more like the Titanic?" Apollo vs TitanicAs Saunders spent more time at OpenAI, he felt leaders were making decisions more akin to "building the Titanic, prioritizing getting out newer, shinier products." OpenAI did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent outside regular business hours by Business Insider. Meanwhile, OpenAI cofounder and former chief scientist Ilya Sutskever, who led the firm's superalignment division, resigned later that month.

The series follows an agent referred to only as the Captain (Hoa Xuande), who's half-Vietnamese and half-French. Aligned with North Vietnam, he's embedded within the South Vietnam army. Critics have generally praised the series, particularly Xuande's performance and Park's direction (in addition to showrunning duties, he directs the first three episodes). Here's a breakdown of where some reviewers stand ahead of the series premiere on HBO Sunday evening.

New York CNN —The massive cargo ship crash that destroyed the Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge on Tuesday will probably cost various shipping companies and insurers billions of dollars in damages. “Maritime law is steeped in antiquity. Maritime law is rooted in the need to settle disputes and enforce rules between different peoples, even before there was the concept of countries with definitive laws. That rule, known as general average, is still a guiding principle of maritime law. “it’s just a fundamental part of the way that the shipping business works,” said Martin Davies, director of the Maritime Law Center at Tulane University.

The owner of the ship that crashed into the Baltimore bridge faces a mountain of potential lawsuits. Experts say the owner will likely try to invoke an 1851 law to try to cap potential damages. The Limitation of Liability Act was successfully used by the Titanic owner after the 1912 sinking. "If they're fully successful, it will cap how much they have to pay in damages," Michael Sturley, an expert in maritime law and professor at the University of Texas at Austin's School of Law, told BI. However, I must say that the way things look at present, it seems unlikely that a limitation petition will be successful."

Currently, many personal-use products in supermarkets, such as body wash, conditioners, and other hygiene products, use a lot of single-use plastics. "It creates so much plastic waste, and shipping water for these products also creates a lot of CO2 emissions," Grange told Business Insider. This reduces water waste, which would otherwise be required to manufacture and transport these products. Amid a tougher funding environment for D2C startups in the past two years, Grange told BI that's "growth economics and product-market fit" helped them to secure funding. Check out the 16-slide pitch deck used to secure the fresh funding.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Supporters of Israel rallied by the thousands on the National Mall under heavy security Tuesday, voicing solidarity in the fight against Hamas and crying “never again." The Homeland Security Department designated the march a “level 1” security event, the highest classification in its system and one usually used for the Super Bowl and other major events, two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press. The designation means the event required substantial law enforcement assistance from federal agencies, the officials said. The officials were not authorized to discuss details of the law enforcement bulletin publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Many of the demonstrators at the “March for Israel” wore Israeli flags wrapped around their shoulders, flowing behind them, or held small Israeli flags in their hands.

There were oysters, salmon with Hollandaise sauce, beef, squab, duck, roast chicken, green peas, parsnip purée and Victoria pudding. The feast described is not a Thanksgiving meal, but a snapshot of what first-class passengers on the Titanic ate for dinner on April 11, 1912, when the ship left Queenstown, Ireland, for New York. A menu from that night, with an embossed red White Star Line flag at the top and signs of water damage, will go up for auction on Saturday at Henry Aldridge & Son Ltd in southwest England. It is expected to sell for up to 70,000 pounds, or about $86,000. The auction will include hundreds of other maritime items, including a White Star Line tartan blanket that was recovered from a Titanic lifeboat and a pocket watch owned by a second-class passenger, a Russian immigrant, who did not survive the sinking.

But a two-faced star? Janus is fairly massive for a white dwarf, with a mass 20% larger than that of our sun compressed into an object with a diameter half that of Earth. About 97% of all stars are destined to become white dwarfs when they die," Caiazzo said. Janus may represent a white dwarf in the midst of this transitional blending process, but with the puzzling development of one side being hydrogen while the other side is helium. Janus is not the only exotic white star known.

In particular, design differences between the Titanic and Olympic, visible in photographs of the two ships, are consistent with the wreckage of Titanic being, in fact, Titanic, and making the switch theory implausible. Another of the ships, Olympic, was put into service the year before, on June 14, 1911, and retired in 1935, with many of its fixtures and fittings auctioned off before it was scrapped. Magellan and its collaborator Atlantic Productions released sample images and animations of the Titanic wreck site scans to media outlets in May 2023, which can be viewed (here), (here). Olympic’s hull number was 400, and Titanic’s was 401. “Meanwhile,” Layton said, “the Titanic’s correct hull number, 401, has been observed at the wreck site and on items recovered from the wreck.

Such was the belief in the Titanic that safety regulations of the day were not updated to keep pace with the technology. The first version was adopted in 1914, in response to the Titanic disaster,” the International Maritime Organization (IMO) says on its website. Other SOLAS regulations linked back to the Titanic disaster include:Abandon ship drills – The Titanic captain had canceled one the day of the sinking. Lessons from TitanMaritime experts and historians have noted the Titan submersible operated outside of the regulations prompted by the Titanic disaster. The Titan submersible did not need to conform to safety regulations, since it operated in international waters.

The Federal Reserve Bank. There's a theory out there that JP Morgan sank the Titanic in order to pave the way for the establishment of the Federal Reserve Bank in the US.

The Titanic Truthers of TikTok

Mr. Morgan, whose White Star Line owned the Titanic, figures prominently in Titanic lore. (In some tellings, TikTok creators have recast the villains as the wealthy Rothschild family or even the Catholic order of the Jesuits.) Evidence suggests that Mr. Morgan failed to make his date with the Titanic because he was dealing with an unexpected situation involving his European art collection. The consensus, though, is this: The Titanic sank in a terrible accident and many people died. “On a grand scale, the study of history keeps you from repeating the mistakes that were made in the past and, continually, moving forward,” said Mr. Stephenson, who is now the executive director of the USS Kidd Veterans Museum.

Kelly, 56, the Grammy-winning R&B artist, has been convicted in two separate trials of luring multiple underage girls into sex by leveraging his wealth and fame, in some case recording the abuse on video. Prosecutors have argued in a sentencing memo that Kelly is so incorrigible that "the only way to ensure Kelly does not reoffend is to impose a sentence that will keep him in prison for the rest of his life." Defense attorneys say a 56-year-old African American man with diabetes is already facing an effective life sentence with the existing 30-year term. "There was a whole culture around it and so yes I do think there's a disproportionate attention on Mr. Kelly," Bonjean said in a telephone interview. Kelly will not address the judge, Bonjean said, because he still faces prosecution in other jurisdictions and any statement could be used against him.

„La jeune fille sophistiquée” a fost achiziționată în 1955 direct de la sculptor și a făcut parte dintr-o colecție privată până în 2018, când a fost vândută cu 71,2 milioane de dolari la o licitație organizată în New York de Casa Christie’s. Cealaltă sculptură Brâncuși prezentă în Top 10 este „La muse endormie”, realizată în 1913 și vândută cu 57,4 milioane de dolari în 2017, tot la o licitație Christie’s în New York. Creația face parte dintr-o serie de sculpturi „Muza adormită” care se află astăzi în colecțiile unor muzee prestigioase, precum Muzeul Metropolitan de Artă din New York, Art Institute din Chicago sau Musée National d’Art Moderne din Paris. Una dintre „muze” a fost cea care a trezit interesul Americii pentru arta lui Brâncuși, după ce a fost prezentată, în 1913, la Armory Show din New York, în cadrul unei expoziții în care artiștii europeni făceau cunoștință cu iubitorii de artă americani. Cohen a cumpărat „The Rabbit” în 2019, la o licitație a Casei Christie’s, miliardarul fiind atunci reprezentat de Robert Mnuchin, tatăl lui Steven Mnuchin, Secretarul Trezoreriei americane în administrația Trump, scrie

Căpitanul picase examenul de navigaţieEdward John Smith, căpitanul Titanicului, a fost „victima” a numeroase mituri, în ultimii 103 ani. Când nava a început să se scufunde, a decis să înfrunte moartea cu demnitate. În realitate, pasagera Elizabeth Shutes a fost atât de deranjată de mirosul gheţii, încât nu a putut dormi. Un alt „ingredient” pentru dezastru a fost fenomenul de refracţie a luminii.
