Father killed by violent chicken

A father in the UK was killed after being attacked by his own chicken that turned violent and had previously attacked a child. The 67-year-old man was found lying in a pool of blood by his daughter. The Brahma chicken had caused a puncture wound in the back of his leg that caused him to lose a massive amount of blood. He also suffered a heart attack but was able to whisper the word “rooster,” as he briefly regained consciousness. Paramedics were summoned and performed CPR but were unsuccessful. The details came to light at an inquest in Ireland, the Daily Mail reported.

Elon Musk gives new warning on AI

There is a massive buzz about artificial intelligence (AI) following the release of ChatGPT. Google has hurried to take over the top spot, releasing its embarrassingly not-ready-for-primetime BARD to compete with firm OpenAI developed ChatGPT, and Microsoft investing $10 billion in the startup for a piece of the action.

Elon Musk, who was a cofounder of OpenAI and stepped away after it went from an open-source nonprofit to a capitalist venture, has warned about the dangers of AI before and is sounding the alarm.

“One of the biggest risks to the future of civilization is AI,” Musk told attendees at the World Government Summit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, recently. “It’s both positive or negative and has great, great promise, great capability.”

Musk then stressed, “with that comes great danger,” CNBC reported.

“I think we need to regulate AI safety, frankly,” Musk added. “It is, I think, actually a bigger risk to society than cars or planes or medicine.”

Raquel Welch dies

Welch’s career spanned over 50 years, and the Golden Globe-winning actress starred in over 30 films and 50 television series and appearances.

Answer to why US used $400K missiles on flying objects

Many people are demanding answers as to why US fighter jets used costly missiles instead of bullets to take down what are all believed to be balloons. Now we have the answer.

Jets fired five heat-seeking AIM-9X Sidewinder missiles at four aerial objects over the US and Canadian air space the missiles have a price tag of roughly $400,000 each. Military and pilots have learned that the air pressure at 40,000 feet doesn’t allow helium to escape freely through small holes, so objects keep floating at that altitude and can’t simply be popped. Reportedly, Canada figured that out the hard way in 1998 after being roasted for firing 1,000 rounds of ammunition at a balloon that survived the assault, Yahoo reports.

Rare video of 1986 dive in Titanic wreckage released

A new, never-before-publicly-seen video taken from a dive to the ocean floor to the wreckage of the Titanic some 12,500 feet below the surface was released on Wednesday. The wreckage of the RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic after striking an iceberg in 1912. The sunken ship is located roughly 400 miles off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. It was filmed by diver Robert Ballard after he and his crew from the Massachusetts-based Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution found the luxury ocean liner, KSL reported. KSAT-12 posted the footage on YouTube.
