Artificial Neural Networks and Evolutionary Algorithms

Neuroevolution: Building and/or Training Artificial Neural Networks with the Power of Evolution
Means of Artificial Neural Springer just launched a new journal called Evolutionary Intelligence. The first issue is freely available on-line, and it contains a nice review article on neuroevolution, which is the term for approaches to building and/or training artificial neural networks, which are networks of computing elements (usually simulated on a computer) that are inspired by biological neurons. The paper is called Neuroevolution: from architectures to learning by Dario Floreano, Peter Dürr, and Claudio Mattiussi.
This is my area of research (I'm currently using evolutionary algorithms and artificial neural networks to model aspects of the neocortex), so I was happy to see this paper in the inaugural issue of the journal. In 1999, Xin Yao wrote what is probably still the most comprehensive review of the subject, in a paper called Evolving artificial neural networks.
This new paper classifies such approaches along slightly different lines and includes some more recent approaches, so it's a nice companion paper to Yao's.
By way of brief review, an evolutionary algorithm is an optimization method

That is a misunderstanding of Biblical prophecy
the antichrist will not have a 7 year reign, this is commonly referred to as the 'seven years of tribulation'. find that phrase for me in the Bible- it doesnt exist.
it is a misunderstanding of the 70 weeks prophecy located in Daniel 9:24-27. the Jews have placed a talmudic curse on anyone that attempts to calculate the numbers give in these verses because it proves that Jesus was the Messiah. It proves the date He would come, how long His ministry would last, and that He would be crucified 3 and 1/2 years into His ministry.
today, prevalent in theology (read that, Jesuit theology-- which has slithered its way into protestant seminaries ((preterism/futurism))) has come up with the idea that the last 'week' (7 days, or,...

Someone here might gain something from it. It is true.
For the past week I have had prolonged bouts of crying. I have not been able to sleep or eat and didnt answer the phone. What would cause this? Death in the family? Losing the house? Cancer diagnosis? Not at all.
My depression has been over the stock market. Not over how much money I've lost, but rather how much money I would have made had I not sold my stock. I invested 50% of our money into it so we're not talking chump change. It would have been enough to buy a house, more as it continues to climb.
Now I am not normally an emotional person. Prior to investing in the markets, I maybe would cry 1-2 times a year and always for a reason. I have a good life with no money worries, loving husband, my health, etc. but I...

Good afternoon. Let me begin by saying that although this has been billed as an anti-war rally, I stand before you as someone who is not opposed to war in all circumstances.
The Civil War was one of the bloodiest in history, and yet it was only through the crucible of the sword, the sacrifice of multitudes, that we could begin to perfect this union, and drive the scourge of slavery from our soil. I don’t oppose all wars.
My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton’s army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of...
