I found this cute little Jewish community by accident and had been going to their lectures recently.
The last lecture was from the founding faculty and energy advisor of Singularity University, Jose Cordeiro.
The guy showed his interest in diversity by naming himself in 3 different Asian languages.
Mr. Cordeiro started his lecture describing the current trend of technology is advancing at an exponential rate. He then went into detail on how we went from computer punch card memory to flashcards in 30 years.
Soon we don’t even have to communicate with words, we could just use these antennas attached to our heads. The one on his head is from a company called Mindware, which developed these gears with five antennas.
Another Chinese company developed a new mind-reading gear with 14 antennas.
“With this rate, this is the last generation of humankind.” We will live with robots. We will find cures for all diseases and live forever. We will stay positive as we get into the world’s next stages. Our robots will be civilized, not like the robot on this screen (terminator).
Friday night was the first night of China Open at the Tennis Center around the Olympic Park.

Huge murals of Tennis stars hanging around the stadium.
VIP box seats.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the China Open, the game kicked off with a Battle of Sexes – Li Na, the best Chinese tennis player, versus Novak Djokovic, the current world No. 1.
But not so fast, we will cut the cake first.
Plaques commemorating these philanthropic individuals.
All aboard – the sponsors and the cake.
Taking a bite before starting the game.
First round, Li and Djokovic separately vs. teenagers .
Li vs. teenage players.
Mr. Djokovic was supposedly refereeing, but he busied himself by taking pictures of Li…
…and by becoming a ball boy.
Time to switch the roles.
Li Na refereeing.
Interesting score board.
Second round, they set up a bunch of boards. 4 famous Chinese film artists will split into two teams – one with Li, and the other with Djokovic, and they will compete for which team could hit the boards the most.
Li and Djokovic picking out their team members.
The boards aren’t as easy to hit as they looked.
To make the game fairer, Djokovic had to play with his left hand.
Cinematographers working with their “cannons”
Third round, the real “Battle of Sexes” began.
They bantered way too much and had way too much fun.
At the end of the “show”, we went around the plaza and played this simulated tennis match with our hands.
