Serpent in the Sky is my go to when powers out. It’s filled with highly fascinating facts about ancient Egypt and the seemingly unknown application of well known artifacts!

All good and hope things turn around soon. Be sure to keep your head up as its worth it even just for the little things in life.

What distro did you end up switching too?

This is always a decent idea, I distro hopped until I found one which worked with my workflow best. From a quick search it seems like Zorin is similar to Mint as its focus is to make switching from iOS/Windows easier. I highly recommend trying Fedora!! After trying ~7 distro’s, each for at least 2 months, Fedora/Nobara for me were the most well rounded while also having a solid sized community to aid with questions when they arise.

The concept of an Alpha was thanks to wolf observations. Yet new research demonstrates an alpha is only established when in captivity and in the wild wolf packs act as a team.

According to the President we’ll need 5-15’s too but cocktails + the masses are a force he didn’t correctly evaluate in my opinion. Or maybe he just hopes the media dissolves the latter threat

One of my microbiology professors stated we treat symptoms since its much easier plus creates repeat patients/customers. At this stage in the game though the focus shouldn’t be on symptoms but genetics without question. Solving genetic variations resulting in too much or too little output of biochemicals is currently possible for select diseases yet results in a one time customer. Due to this aspect, the field of genetic repair has never been an area of true interest for the big spenders as they tend to care much more about the bottom line than their patients.

Quantum technologies, i.e. technological devices obtained by building and manipulating quantum mechanical systems, are becoming a reality in recent days. The most prominent example is certainly given by quantum computers, where the unit of information, the bit, is replaced by its quantum mechanical counterpart, informally called the qubit. Contrary to classical computers, quantum computers promise to use the full quantum mechanical features of qubits, in order to address and solve computational problems which would be out of reach by using classical computers. As an example, the Canadian company Xanadu recently claimed that its quantum computer has been able to solve, in just 36 microseconds, a computational task that would have required 9000 years using state-of-the-art supercomputers.

I feel like its associated with folks mostly being set in their ways in their 30s. When this occurs, patterns in day to day life become routine decreasing the chance of running into new people/likeminds.

The Science community is pretty active and provides cool information as well

Chemists at UCLA and Northwestern University have developed a simple way to break down almost a dozen types of these nearly indestructible "forever chemicals" at relatively low temperatures with no harmful byproducts.

One of the scientists involved in this achievement started at the ground floor and after 25+ years of research finally pulled of the results to help alleviate world hunger.

"This is a very exciting technology," says Xiaomeng Liu, graduate student in electrical and computer engineering in UMass Amherst's College of Engineering and the paper's lead author. "It is real green energy, and unlike other so-called 'green-energy' sources, its production is totally green." That's because this biofilm -- a thin sheet of bacterial cells about the thickness of a sheet of paper -- is produced naturally by an engineered version of the bacteria Geobacter sulfurreducens. G. sulfurreducens is known to produce electricity and has been used previously in "microbial batteries" to power electrical devices. But such batteries require that G. sulfurreducens is properly cared for and fed a constant diet. By contrast, this new biofilm, which can supply as much, if not more, energy than a comparably sized battery, works, and works continuously, because it is dead. And because it's dead, it doesn't need to be fed. "It's much more efficient," says Derek Lovley, Distinguished Professor of Microbiology at UMass Amherst and one of the paper's senior authors. "We've simplified the process of generating electricity by radically cutting back on the amount of processing needed. We sustainably grow the cells in a biofilm, and then use that agglomeration of cells. This cuts the energy inputs, makes everything simpler and widens the potential applications." The secret behind this new biofilm is that it makes energy from the moisture on your skin. Though we daily read stories about solar power, at least 50% of the solar energy reaching the earth goes toward evaporating water. "This is a huge, untapped source of energy," says Jun Yao, professor of electrical and computer engineering at UMass, and the paper's other senior author. Since the surface of our skin is constantly moist with sweat, the biofilm can "plug-in" and convert the energy locked in evaporation into enough energy to power small devices. "The limiting factor of wearable electronics," says Yao, "has always been the power supply. Batteries run down and have to be changed or charged. They are also bulky, heavy, and uncomfortable." But a clear, small, thin flexible biofilm that produces a continuous and steady supply of electricity and which can be worn, like a Band-Aid, as a patch applied directly to the skin, solves all these problems. What makes this all work is that G. sulfurreducens grows in colonies that look like thin mats, and each of the individual microbes connects to its neighbors through a series of natural nanowires. The team then harvests these mats and uses a laser to etch small circuits into the films. Once the films are etched, they're sandwiched between electrodes and finally sealed in a soft, sticky, breathable polymer that you can apply directly to your skin. Once this tiny battery is "plugged in" by applying it to your body, it can power small devices. "Our next step is to increase the size of our films to power more sophisticated skin-wearable electronics," says Yao, and Liu points out that one of the goals is to power entire electronic systems, rather than single devices. This research was nurtured by the Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS) at UMass Amherst, which combines deep and interdisciplinary expertise from 29 departments to translate fundamental research into innovations that benefit human health and well-being.

Really? I haven’t looked into it specifically as the time they spend selling the idea made me think its a sure thing.

100% They have a video demonstrating the surprising amount of space. One they fit a drum set, 3 guitars, an amp and a bag. Another with a full size latter, a smaller latter, a bunch of paint and bags. Also one with two snowboards side by side with helmets, boots and a bag. There is definitely a reason they offer the tent attachment for the trunk.

It has 60% more storage space than a Honda Accord & 20% more than a Prius plus you can turn the trunk into a tent! I’m following the project as no more gas and oil changes with an all wheel drive solar EV sounds remarkable and reduces my expenses.

I truly enjoyed Everything, Everywhere, All at Once. I feel the idea that the worst mutliversal version of someone is capable of saving the universe alines with the idea we each matter and deserve the basics at bare minimum to a certain extent.

Maybe its just the fact they are more aware of how invasive tracking has become and its continued drastic increases. Are there Millennials or Gen X who seek to endlessly allow corporate American to label and follow them online?

I understand how the term “free” alters not only how often an online product is used but also how transparent users are with it but unless I start getting a cut of my data being solid behind closed doors, get fucked (right???).

Just implement old faithful and nickname your significant other Bambi! They should assume its related to their (hopefully) “big” brown eyes yet it will provide some comic relief as you’ll know its only cause you want to kill their Mom lol. Extra points if you can overtime have your MIL call your significant other Bambi too.

All joking aside, have you talked about this with your partner? They should be able to offer some insight regarding how to best correct or smooth out the problem I’d bet.

"Researchers at Georgia State University may have published the scientific understatement of the year when saying that their CRISPR experiment with hamsters “found that the biology behind social behavior may be more complex than previously thought”." Cue *Planet of the Hamsters* production budgets

If it was a latent virus it would be much more difficult to identify. Latent viruses are a more advanced virus as it has all cell replication embed the viral genome within it and will continue to replicate for sometimes decades until side effects begin. Most definitely still a major oversight on the physician’s end but at least if was a latent virus things would make more sense.

Physics is tough, even crazier is the fact physics is labeled as the simplest science. This is due to physics only interpreting length, mass, time, and electric current. This claim is very misleading in my mind. Calculus was developed as a necessity to interpreted these four qualities to help better understand the world around us. But I couldn’t agree more regarding physics needing a full makeover to make the subject more approachable for sure.

I didnt think so, I study molecular bio and aside from nursing programs, males are predominantly involved in the research. I see the article as a reasonable explanation for the why behind the what personally.
