    Attacks like this happen when certain groups notice when a US administration has no real backbone and thinks "we can do whatever we want" now. It's sad that theres a group of Americans who either dont care or are too uneducated to understand how far reaching the effects of a spineless, money hungry and selfish government can reach. In this particular case, the worldwide economy suffers

    This "artificial intelligence" phrase is such a hype. It's just image recognition software, people are doing this for so many years. The diference is today's big computational power alowing you to analyse huge data

    2. Have an additional permanent cover on top.
    3. There 400 other creative ways to hide the shadows .

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could funnel some of this human ingenuity (i.e. traders/trading system) towards something that's actually productive?
