Many people were shocked after Donald Trump won the United States presidential elections of 2016. They were fooled by false sense of security, supported by many mainstream poll and prediction sites forecasting Hillary Clinton to win. But how could the pollsters be so wrong? And how is it possible to improve future predictions? These are some of the questions, the book The Signal and the Noise wants to answer.
Bernie Sanders is currently serving his second term in the Senate of the United States. He considers himself a democratic socialist and a progressive politician. He rose to fame because of his rather unconventional run for presidency, which he lost in the end against his democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. Clinton then lost to the republican candidate Donald Trump, who is the 45th president of the United States.
Recently I got into the Netflix series Black Mirror. If is a very beautiful (but also dark) series illustrating the dangers of new technology. The single episodes are not connected with each other, so you can watch them in any order you want. Some episodes are nearer to today’s world that you maybe want them to be while others seem to be further away from today. But no matter how near or far the displayed world seems to be, the series asks important questions how human living is influenced by modern technology.
