All of this in just 3 years? 0_0

I won;t even imagine what will happen if USA ever enter recession...
lets see

Brazil is facing its biggest corruption scandal in a century
Its oil company is facing bankruptcy

Rio is bankrupt
2 weeks to Olympic and its facility is not close to finish

Abandon all hope then.

Last Olympic to make money for the host city was Salt Lake.

China's Socially Networked Repression:

"China's social credit score in action (it's how China is ushering in a long night of
socially networked repression).

Essentially, this is a score that follows you for life. It's public and accessible.

It goes down: If you break any rules, say bad things online, pay a creditor late, or any
of a rapidly expanding list of immoral things...

A negative score impacts your ability to access government services. The companies
you can buy products from (they don't want to sell to people with low scores). Your
friends and the people you can marry (they get a lower score if you have a low score).

China's dictatorship needed a way to control an advanced, socially networked society.

This is it."

It may be 2018, but the Chinese are increasingly living in 1984:

"Workers in China are being hooked up with brain-reading devices that feed information
about their moods to their employers, raising concerns about the privacy of people’s
most basic emotions.

Electronic sensors that fit into hats and helmets are being used in China on an
“unprecedented” scale to read employees’ emotions, the South China Morning Post
reports, in what firms say is part of a drive to increase efficiency and productivity,

But the efforts to tap into the data is sparking concerns that powerful companies are
reading the minds of their employees, with one Chinese psychology professor warning
that the systems could represent a "whole new level" of privacy abuse.

Although details about how the technology works are not clear, reports suggest
devices use lightweight sensors and artificial intelligence algorithms to monitor
brainwaves and detect spikes in emotions such as rage, anxiety and depression. They
can be concealed in safety helmets or uniform hats, and stream data to computers
accessed by employers.

The Post reports that the technology is government-backed and is known to be used
in the electronic equipment, electric power supply and telecommunications industries,
plus in the military in China."

Are we sure they aren't just using this data to design AI to replace their workforce, or for other applications.

On the bright side, those Psycho-Pass guns were pretty cool.
