One billion captioned videos

  I read often BetaNews and find a lot of good information. They have an interesting report “Google exceeds 1  billion captioned videos on YouTube.”

“Around the world, there are many people with hearing impairments. This doesn’t mean that they are necessarily deaf — they may instead have severe hearing loss. Someone in my family, for instance, has to wear hearing aids. For these people, captioning on videos (text displayed on screen) can be a necessity, making it possible to enjoy a TV show or movie. Heck, it can be used by people without hearing issues too; they may need to mute their TV as to not wake family members.

Nowadays, captioning extends to internet videos too, including the very popular YouTube. In fact, today, Google announces that it has exceeded 1 billion captioned videos! While this is certainly an amazing accomplishment, the service’s automatic speech recognition can sometimes be very wrong — even comically so.””

 I have 713 videos on YouTube.  I do not pay for captioning.  YouTube just gives that to videos.
I just checked my recent video:  President Trump’s lies and a discussion about Truth and Lies and the captioning I think on that video is excellent.

Here is that video below.

Trump vs Truth by John Oliver

John Oliver is back, and he’s launched his most challenging investigation yet. 

On Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight” on HBO, the comic looked into reality itself, which is under assault by President Donald Trump and a White House that accepts “alternative facts.” 

So what can you do when the president himself doesn’t seem to care what the facts are? 

Try to teach him anyway… secretly. 

Oliver is going to start running ads on some of Trump’s favorite TV shows that look a lot like some of the commercials already airing ― but with a slight difference.

Check it out above.

President Trump it maybe an error to attack Arnold Schwarzenegger

  President Trump has been attacking Arnold Schwarzenegger.  There was no reason for President Trump to attack and try and make fun of Arnold Schwarzenegger. 
  Schwarzenegger was Governor of California from 2003 to 2011.  But President Trumps attacks on Schwarzenegger have been about him being on “The Celebrity Apprentice” TV show.  

  You got to wonder why would President Donald Trump care about Arnold Schwarzenegger or the TV show.

  First you think that maybe President Trump fears Schwarzenegger running for President of the United States.  But Schwarzenegger was not born in the United States and so can not be President.

Now I can get access to a gun

  I want to thank the Republicans in the House.  They voted to allow people that are mentally impaired to have access to guns.  Yes the Republicans in the House want people like me with mental illnesses to have access to guns.
  God bless the Republicans.  They are real fucking Americans.
  They know that the Second Amendment  of the United States Constitution does not say that people that are crazy can not have a gun.  Hell we are the sort of people that want and need guns.
   We need protection from Communist,  Saintist, Zomies and space aliens.  Plus there are others that we need guns for and you know who they are ….

   A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

 

Trump’s Education Secretary – God help us

“Betsy DeVos crashed and burned during confirmation hearings for Trumps Cabinet office of Education Secretary. I’m not sure what Betsy DeVos should be Secretary of, but it’s not Education maybe Secretary of one of Trump’s businesses would be a better fit for the Charter School advocate who folded under questions posed by Benrie Sanders, Al Franken, Chris Murphy and Elizabeth Warren. Only Trump’s most “AnthingTrumpSays” supporters can honestly watch Betsy DeVos fumble questions like what type of teaching do your prefer proficiency or growth? and come away thinking “Sure! This woman is very qualified to run the agency responsible for Education America.”

President Trump’s emotional stability!

Are the Republicans getting worried that Donald Trump is unstable? John Iadarola, Michael Shure, and Jimmy Dore, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why they’re concerned. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go

“President Donald Trump’s obsessions with defending his inauguration crowd size and embracing false “voter fraud” conspiracies has reportedly led some members of his own party to question his emotional well being.

Reporter Carl Bernstein went on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon this week, and he said that he’s been hearing from Republicans in Washington D.C. who are concerned about the president’s overall mental health.

“It is unlike anything that I have seen in 50 years of being a reporter,” said Bernstein, who first made his name by breaking stories on the Watergate scandal while working for the Washington Post. “I am hearing from Republicans, and other reporters are as well, that there is open discussion by members of the President of the United States’ own party about his emotional maturity, stability.”

Trump drew criticism even from media confidantes such as Joe Scarborough this past weekend for his speech at the CIA in which he boasted repeatedly about his inauguration’s crowd size, while at the same time sending out Press Secretary Sean Spicer to deliver an angry news conference whose sole purpose was to defend the size of the Trump inauguration’s crowds.”

Uber has updated their app

  I had a package to ship out to Germany.  I had it ready yesterday but the mailman would not take it.  He said that he could not pickup international mail! 
  So today my son and I used an Uber to go to the post office with the package.  The people at the post office, of course, said that the mail man can and should have picked up the package for us. 
We had the Uber driver wait for us and then had him take us to What-A-Burger and we got some food and then back home.

  I think I can stay home until the 1st now.  On the 1st I have a doctor’s appointment.

  Uber has updated their app:
