Last Tuesday, while torrential rains brought floods that cut off whole towns in Victoria, Australia's weather forecasting agency made a strange announcement. The Bureau of Meteorology called on all media to change the name they had used to refer to it: the BoM. Instead it wanted to be called The Bureau. What seemed like an odd branding announcement at first, has led to a series of revelations about working conditions for Australia's official weather forecasters.

How can we change the way we think about expertise (or the trustworthiness of any information source) using forecasting? How do prediction markets work? How can we use prediction markets in our everyday lives? Are prediction markets more trustworthy than large or respectable news outlets? How long does it take to sharpen one's prediction skills? In (e.g.) presidential elections, we know that the winner will be one person from a very small list of people; but how can we reasonably make predictions in cases where the outcomes aren't obviously multiple-choice (e.g., predicting when artificial general intelligence will be created)? How can we move from the world we have now to a world in which people think more quantitatively and make much better predictions? What scoring rules should we use to keep track of our predictions and update accordingly?Peter Wildeford is the co-CEO of Rethink Priorities, where he aims to scalably employ a large number of well-qualified researchers to work on the world's most important problems.

Sleepwalking To The Gates of Hell with Martin Armstrong With or without our consent, humanity is being dragged into a horrific third word war. Martin Armstrong gives a sobering assessment and forecast of how, why, and what to expect when hell on earth manifests. Martin also discusses: • The likelihood that Americans will be subjected to an willingly accept a Chinese-style social credit rating system. • What the past eight civilizations that have collapsed (with the exception of Egypt post-1250 BC) all have in common. • Will the push for green energy fully succeed in the US or only prevail in a limited number of states. • When China becomes epicenter of economic activity by 2032, will it drastically increase it's sphere of influence and political ideologies the same way the US did in post World War II. • What form of government in history was most favorable to individual rights and what nations and states will have the most freedom in the future. 2022 World Economic Conference Orlando, FL November 11, 12, and 13 The (WEC) provides a rare glimpse into our financial futures, enable attendees to learn from the leading economic expert, and attract like-minded individuals from around the world.

Hurricane Ian tore into western Cuba as a major hurricane, with nothing to stop it from intensifying into a catastrophic Category 4 storm before it crashes ashore in Florida, where officials ordered 2.5 million people to evacuate. Ian made landfall at 4.30am EDT Tuesday in Cuba's Pinar del Rio province, where officials set up 55 shelters, evacuated 50,000 people, rushed in emergency personnel and took steps to protect crops in the nation's main tobacco-growing region. The US National Hurricane Center said "significant wind and storm surge impacts" occurred Tuesday morning in western Cuba. Ian struck with sustained top winds of 205km/h. As much as 4.3m of storm surge was predicted along Cuba's coast.   Traffic builds along Interstate 4 in Tampa, Florida as Hurricane Ian approaches. Photo / Willie J. Allen Jr, Orlando Sentinel via AP Ian was forecast to strengthen even more over warm Gulf of Mexico waters, reaching top winds of 225km/h as it approaches Florida's southwest coast. Tropical storm-force winds were expected across the southern peninsula late Tuesday, reaching hurricane force Wednesday morning. "Right now we're focusing on west central Florida area as the main area for impact," hurricane specialist Andy Latto told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Shoppers at the Costco store in Altamonte Springs, Florida grab bottles of water from the last pallet in stock. Photo / Joe Burbank, Orlando Sentinel via AP With tropical storm-force winds extending 185km from Ian's centre, damage was expected across a wide area of Florida, regardless of where Ian makes landfall. The hurricane centre expanded its storm surge warning to the peninsula's Atlantic coast, and expanded its tropical storm warning from Boca Raton to Brunswick, Georgia — a distance of about 603km. Waves crash against a seawall as Hurricane Ian passes through George Town, Grand Cayman island. Photo / Kevin Morales, AP Gil Gonzalez boarded his windows with plywood Tuesday and had sandbags ready to protect his Tampa home from flooding. He and his wife had stocked up on bottled water and packed torches, battery packs for their cellphones and a camp stove with a large propane burner as they got ready to evacuate. "All the prized possessions, we've put them upstairs in a friend's house and nearby, and we've got the car loaded," Gonzalez said. He added: "I think we're ready." Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said an estimated 2.5 million people were under evacuation orders. He urged people to prepare for power outages and to get out of its way. "When you have five to 10 feet of storm surge, that is not something you want to be a part of," DeSantis said Tuesday. "And Mother Nature is a very fearsome adversary." Hurricane Ian grew stronger as it barreled toward Cuba. Photo / Nasa Worldview, Earth Observing System Data and Information System via AP The hurricane centre expanded its hurricane warning to include Bonita Beach north through Tampa Bay to the Anclote River. Fort Myers is in the hurricane zone, and Tampa and St Petersburg could get their first direct hit by a major hurricane since 1921. "People on the barrier islands who decide not to go, they do so at their own peril," Roger Desjarlais, county manager of Lee County, where Fort Myers is, said early Tuesday. "The best thing they can do is leave." The county issued mandatory evacuations for low-lying areas including Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Bonita Beach, where about 250,000 people live. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, left, speaks as he stands with Kevin Guthrie, director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Photo / Chris O'Meara, AP As the storm's centre moved into the Gulf, scenes of destruction emerged in Cuba's world-famous tobacco belt. The owner of the premier Finca Robaina cigar producer posted photos on social media showing wood-and-thatch roofs smashed to the ground, greenhouses in rubble and wagons overturned. "It was apocalyptic, a real disaster," wrote Hirochi Robaina, grandson of the operation's founder. State media published photos showing broad floodwaters flowing through the town of San Juan y Martinez and more than 1 million Cubans were without power Tuesday morning, including all of the western provinces of Pinar del Rio and Artemisa. There were no reports of deaths. A resident uses plastic as protection from the rain in Batabano, Cuba. Photo / Ramon Espinosa, AP Ian's forward movement was expected to slow over the Gulf, enabling the hurricane to grow wider and stronger before it brings punishing wind and water to Florida's west coast. Forecasters said the surge of ocean water could reach 3m if it peaks at high tide. Rainfall could total 410mm with as much as 610mm in isolated areas. Coastal communities could be inundated. In Key West, the airport closed Tuesday as gusty rains from the storm added to a king tide to swamp the streets, prompting animal rescuers to delay venturing out until after Ian passes. In Orlando, Disney World closed four hotels as a precaution while holding off on any decision to shut down its theme parks. Busch Gardens in Tampa closed at least through Thursday. In Florida's northeastern corner, the US Navy said it planned to move ships and aircraft from its base outside Jacksonville. As Hurricane Ian approaches Florida, shopping carts are left abandoned next to empty shelves that stock bottled water at a supermarket. Photo / John Raoux, AP Playing it safe, Nasa was rolling its moon rocket from the launch pad to its Kennedy Space Center hangar, adding weeks of delay to the test flight. The airports in Tampa and St. Petersburg announced they'll close Tuesday afternoon. President Joe Biden also declared an emergency, authorising the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate disaster relief and provide assistance to protect lives and property. FEMA has strategically positioned generators, millions of meals and millions of litres of water, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. News crews, tourists and residents take images as high waves from Hurricane Ian crash into the seawall at the Southernmost Point buoy.

Good afternoon, I'm _____ with today's episode of EZ News. **Tai-Ex opening ** The Tai-Ex opened down 114-points this morning from yesterday's close, at 14,981 on turnover of $4.3-billion N-T. Shares in Taiwan moved higher to end above the 15,000-point mark Wednesday as the electronics sector recouped early losses, helping the broader market climb out of its previous doldrums (低迷). Turnover remained thin, however, as investors remained cautious amid lingering concerns over possible volatility among tech stocks in the U.S., which could be affected by expectations of Federal Reserve interest rate hikes. **Typhoon Hinnamnor (Update 10AM) ** The CWB Taiwan will see more significant impact from Typhoon Hinnamnor tomorrow and Saturday, when the storm will likely be closest to the island. The Central Weather Bureau says as of 2am, the storm was located about 520-km east of Taipei and is moving in a southwesterly direction at a speed of 27-km-per-hr. A strong wind advisory is up for most regions across Taiwan's coastal regions in the north, west and east, due to the influence of the typhoon's outer periphery (周邊). Forecasters say a sea warning may come tomorrow morning, but the bureau is still monitoring the path of the storm before determining whether a land warning should be issued as well. **Taiwan Expo in Thailand focuses on environmental sustainability ** Taiwanese and Thai officials are touting (宣傳,讚揚) the potential for greater collaboration between the two countries on the manufacture of electric vehicles and the creation of a "green" economy, during the opening of the annual Taiwan Expo.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: [Cause Exploration Prizes] Training experts to be forecasters, published by Sam Abbott on August 26, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. This essay was submitted to Open Philanthropy's Cause Exploration Prizes contest. If you're seeing this in summer 2022, we'll be posting many submissions in a short period. If you want to stop seeing them so often, apply a filter for the appropriate tag! Summary Improving decision-making through forecasting requires both knowledge of how to forecast, and domain expertise to develop the forecast question, provide guidance for sources of evidence and their synthesis, and help facilitate the use of the results of the forecasting process. We argue that one, currently neglected, strategy of making forecasting more useful is to focus on making domain experts better forecasters. The current dominant strategy to make forecasting useful relies on the use of aggregate forecasts from a pool of self-selecting forecasters, providing feedback and incentives, identifying high-performing forecasters from this pool, and focussing on forecasts from this subset. We refer to this approach as forecast consulting and suggest the model is similar to other forms of consultancy. Significant resources are being spent on training and identifying high-performing forecasters with some of this focus being to give these forecasters the time, space, and training needed to gain relevant domain knowledge. Currently little is done to encourage existing domain experts to become better forecasters themselves or to identify those with innate potential. We believe that encouraging and helping experts to become better forecasters has potential benefits that far exceed what is feasible through the current dominant strategy of employing generalist forecasters as consultants alone. Context on forecasting There is some consensus in the EA community that forecasting, as commonly practised in the community, is important and helpful. Forecasting is “big if true”: In principle, it is an excellent way to summarise existing knowledge. It can help guide and improve relevant and important decisions by making implicit intuitions and assessments explicit, and by revealing uncertainty and variation in opinions. Forecasting can be understood as a thought process, that can unmask blind spots, help make disagreements clear, and aid in synthesising evidence. For many, forecasts are also a form of “news source” that helps them interpret and contextualise current events. In the following, we focus on forecasting that is explicitly used to inform decision-making. In this context, forecasting can provide value if We can select a useful forecast target. The forecasters can forecast the target quantity meaningfully. This means both that it is possible to forecast the target, and that the forecasters have the required expertise to understand the target and make a forecast. The forecasts are “good” or “good enough” to inform the decision being made. If practised by decision-makers the exercise of forecasting, rather than the output of any given forecast, may be beneficial by helping to structure and formalise, synthesise evidence, calibrate expectations, and foster useful debate. Relevant people trust good forecasts and use them as part of their decision-making process. In the following, we argue that we can achieve our goal of improving decision-making through forecasting if more focus is given to increasing the use of forecasting by domain experts and improving their forecasting practice. Note: we're using the term “expert” very broadly here. An expert could be an academic, but could also be a policy maker or someone with personal experience and deep knowledge of the subject.

An Introspective Look At The Collapsing Republic & Push For Global Totalitarianism with Martin Armstrong Massive Civil Unrest in the US starting in 2023, Word War 3 on the horizon, inflation to only get progressively worse, and the elites going all out to push their Great Reset on humanity. Legendary economic forecaster and astute scholar of history & human nature Martin Armstrong returns to the Outer Limits of Inner Truth to discuss his predictions and insight on the topics above. Armstrong reveals what to expect and what people can do in the volatile years ahead. Also, if we can weather the storm till 2032, things should clear up and humanity should be knee deep in a peaceful enlightenment period by 2040. About Martin Armstrong Martin Armstrong is a legendary economic forecaster, pro-freedom advocate, and a brilliant observer of history and human nature. Once a US based trillion dollar financial advisor, Martin developed a computer model based on the number pi and other cyclical theories to predict economic turning points with eerie accuracy (he predicted the October 1987 Black Monday crash to the very day and the Russian financial collapse in 1998). In the early 80s he established his financial forecasting and advising company Princeton Economics. His forecasts were in great demand worldwide. As Armstrong's recognition grew, prominent New York bankers invited him to join “The Club” to aid them in market manipulation. Martin repeatedly refused he was put in a cage for over ten years (see 2014's documentary “The Forecaster” – .

In 1854, a young Russian artillery officer viewed the battlefield carnage occurring far below his cannon’s hilltop placement. “It’s a funny sort of pleasure,” Leo Tolstoy wrote, “to see people killing each other. And yet, every morning and every evening, I would . . . spend hours at a time watching.” Tolstoy’s outlook soon changed. After seeing firsthand the devastation and suffering in the city of Sevastopol, he wrote, “You understand all at once, and quite differently from what you have before, the significance of those sounds of shots which you heard in the city.” The prophet Jonah once climbed a hill to view the devastation of Nineveh (Jonah 4:5). He’d just warned that brutal city of God’s looming judgment. But Nineveh repented, and Jonah was disappointed. The city, however, relapsed into evil, and a century later the prophet Nahum described its destruction. “Shields flash red in the sunlight!” he wrote. “Watch as their glittering chariots move into position, with a forest of spears waving above them” (Nahum 2:3 nlt). Because of Nineveh’s persistent sin, God sent punishment. But He’d told Jonah, “Nineveh has more than 120,000 people living in spiritual darkness. . . . Shouldn’t I feel sorry for such a great city?” (Jonah 4:11 nlt). God justice and love go together. Nahum shows the consequences of evil. Jonah reveals God’s keen compassion for even the worst of us. His heart’s desire is that we repent and extend that compassion to others.
