So I saw something about the great cold spot of the universe some how being able to prove parallel universes. Explain?>I understand CBR
Oh noes, I've been noticed. Um, I'm not sure what you're talking about, but I did find this>PARALLEL UNIVERSES DO EXIST AND RESEARCHERS MAY HAVE THE STRONGEST EVIDENCEhttp://www.physics-astronomy.com/2017/04/a-supervoid-is-unlikely-toexplain-cold.html#.WQMj-PnytEY
But I also found this>WHAT! NO PARALLEL UNIVERSE? COSMIC COLD SPOT JUST DATA ARTIFACThttps://www.universetoday.com/40413/what-no-parallel-universe-cosmic-cold-spot-just-data-artifact/
But who you're really looking for is a British chap who went by the name of "Space Elevator." I'm mostly just reposting his work from the archive
Is Life on Earth Premature from a Cosmic Perspective? >The universe is 13.8 billion years old, while our planet formed just 4.5 billion years ago. Some scientists think this time gap means that life on other planets could be billions of years older than ours. However, new theoretical work suggests that present-day life is actually premature from a cosmic perspective.>“If you ask, ‘When is life most likely to emerge?’ you might naively say, ‘Now,'” says lead author Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “But we find that the chance of life grows much higher in the distant future.”https://arxiv.org/abs/1606.08448
>Of all the designs submitted for Trumps wall, Otra Nation may be the only one advocating for a dismantling of the existing fence line. ... Otra Nation would provide better border security than any physical wall could by using a high-tech system of biometric surveillance and universal smart ID cards.>"Otra Nation will be the world’s first shared co-nation open to citizens of both countries and co-maintained by Mexico and the United States of America," the group says in their proposal.>Far from the wall Trump envisions, the MADE collective wants to build a high-speed, electric hyperloop connecting different parts of Otra Nation. According to the group’s proposal, the new co-nation would be six miles wide and span the 1,200 miles from San Diego/Tijuana to the Gulf Coast.http://fusion.net/story/396986/otra-nation-the-high-tech-ecotopia-border-wall-proposal-that-trump-needs-to-see/
They certainly have all the relevant buzzwords lined up. Seems unrealistic, but what does /mlpol/ think about the "here, but no further" aspect?
>>199>biometric surveillance>just an ID card
This is nothing more than a fucking passport, and we know Mexicans don't use them today.
Will cost 10 times more than a wall. Looks like shit, and will amount to nothing.
Just what I think of it.
if it's going to become a thing, I still want an actual wall on the border and that thing better be implemented in mexico territory.
"Biotech surveillance" and any sort of electronic "virtual fence" is an attempt to build a wall that can be willfully ignored. The people advocating these non-walls want a border that future presidents can direct the border patrol to neglect
I wouldn't mind no wall if they replace the wall with landmines
I like this idea. It is cheep and effective. One question thou, is there any animals (of importance) that could be hurt by this?
Bad news! The research they're referring to uses IAT as a basis that lacks consistency of results making it unreliable as a source.
Were implicit association tests ever firmly debunked?
It's more that they've never shown a robust body of evidence that is internally consistent and without bias.
Not really technology and science, but it is news.
Good news, too! Ebola is back in africa!https://www.afrika-news.com/ebola-outbreak-dr-congo/
Bad news: They seem to have a vaccine ready.

I would think something designed for objectivity would be.
TLDR: natural gas trapped in ice, "potentially more energy than in all other fossil fuels combined">China said Thursday it has successfully extracted samples of natural gas hydrate for the first time in the South China Sea.>The samples came from the Shenhu area in the northern part of the sea, starting last Wednesday about 200 meters below the seabed at a depth of 1,266 meters, the China Geographical Survey said.>The institution under the Ministry of Land and Resources said about 16,000 cubic meters of gas, almost all methane, were extracted on average each day and described its trial mining as achieving a "historic breakthrough."http://asia.nikkei.com/Politics-Economy/International-Relations/China-says-succeeded-in-extracting-gas-hydrates-in-South-China-Sea>Gas hydrate, methane hydrate in particular, is a cage-like structure of crystallized ice, inside of which are trapped molecules of methane, the chief constituent of natural gas.>According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), global estimates vary, but the energy content of methane in hydrates is "immense, possibly exceeding the combined energy content of all other known fossil fuels".http://oilprice.com/Energy/Natural-Gas/Energy-Breakthrough-China-Has-Successfully-Mined-Fire-Ice-From-The-Sea.html

>Traditional jet engines create thrust by mixing compressed air with fuel and igniting it. The burning mixture expands rapidly and is blasted out of the back of the engine, pushing it forwards. Instead of fuel, plasma jet engines use electricity to generate electromagnetic fields. These compress and excite a gas, such as air or argon, into a plasma>The challenge was to develop an air-breathing plasma propulsion engine that could be used for take-off as well as high-altitude flying. “We are the first to produce fast and powerful plasma jets at ground level,” says Göksel. “These jets of plasma can reach speeds of up to 20 kilometres a second.”https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg23431264-500-plasma-jet-engines-that-could-take-you-from-the-ground-to-space/
Only problem is getting a power source good enough.
I wonder, couldn't we move some of this discussion to /cyb/? This thread is pretty low-traffic, but so is that board.

Commie cancer.>Social Equality and Free Software – BoF at DebConf20>Shortly after yesterday’s start of the Debian Conference 2020, I had the honor to participate in a BoF on social equality in free software, led by the OSI vice president and head of the FOSSASIA community, Hong Phuc Dang.

Switched to Pale Moon after seeing more and more Mozilla faggotry.
I've been using Dissenter for a while now. It's been a while since I was last brushing up on Web Browser security stuff, but my basic understanding is that it's a bit more secure and private than Brave, which it's based on.
I also have Vivaldi, for the odd time Dissenter just doesn't work with something.Vivaldi's actually the only web browser I know of that isn't based on either chromium or mozilla.
Man, remember when Chrome had a good reputation? Right after it came out, back when it was one of the slimmest and fastest browsers out there, and had bonus integrated features that were actually kind of convenient. It feels like a different lifetime, almost unimaginable.
The corporate race to the bottom never ends. It is amazing how out of touch with reality these woke corporate people are.

They don't give a shit, only money counts.
The cunt CEO is giving herself extraordinary salary increments while Firefox is going extinct, the reason is pretty obvious, she doesn't expect to be in charge for long and most likely already has a plan to jump ship when the time comes.
Also Mozilla Foundation's corporate (((donors))) are calling the shots. This is a very known story. (((They))) are using Mozilla as a tool for social change.
Is Brave Browser still good?
I would say no.
Brave is focused in to make money, nothing wrong with that, but the problem arises with the compromises taken to meet profitable targets.
Look at the team, the current picture shaved all the SJWs and foreigners from the roster, 2 years ago the roster was 4/5 times bigger and was infected by them. Did the company change its heart? I don't think so. By the way, to keep so many bureaucrats instead of coders is way telling what the organization is about.
My point is that Brave is a woke company and therefore can't be trusted.
Wokeness stops to matter with something like brave that's open-source (they can't sneak in weird shit or add arbitrary limits) and is a client app that you can easily replace (lack of dependence in case they do somehow fuck it up), so there's little downside.>>1288
It's basically just ungoogled chromium with some default extensions, and unless you care about the brave rewards meme (you shouldn't), then there's little reason to use it. Little reason to not use it either though (outside of maybe this https://spyware.neocities.org/articles/brave.html
but the guy is overhyping it).
>>180>AI is racist as fuck.
Why, of course it is. AI and ML foment what's merely a reflection of reality, a high-resolution recognition of what's actually there. It's perhaps a bit more racist than a mirror, which is to say, very.
I fucking hate WEBP, every now and then I'll save an image and it will save as that. You can't open them in anything so you have to go back and try to find the image so you can save it again in a normal format.
In a computer you should be able to open a WEBP with any viewer and save it as JPG without any trouble.
Can Gimp and Paint.Net read them?
GIMP can, don't know about the other one.
If you use Windoze, Infarview and Xnview can open and save almost every image in the universe.https://www.irfanview.com/https://www.xnview.com/en/
On the fly video re-editing and word shifting is easy as cake. A minimum of 30 seconds and anything can be said. Longer data to train on better quality. Ten minutes for remarkably great quality.
40 seconds to finish the new edit and facial expressions can be changed on the fly easy as pie.
The longer the video goes the harder it is to tell that is it a fake.
Can it make Pinkie Pie and Twilight recite the "you summon and kill" scene's dialogue from Devil May Cry 4?
Ah ha! Here's the post about mind wiring. Meat based AI can be done and has been done for years.>Speaking of cybernetics. Brain to brain communication is very close. (Key words "brains wired togther")
Researcgers at Duke wired rat brains togther and it workes. This is in 2013.
Researchers in 2015 wired monkey brains together to perform a task.
In 2018 Seattle they wired three peoples brains to play tetris. Just one way non invasive device.
Brain nets are here, not really mainstream, but we now have almost all the elements to make The Matrix a reality.
So brainnets VS AI who would win? (Not even touching magic atm with this.)
How did Tay happen?

This is merely hibernation or perhaps more accurately undercover survival.
What about rebranding them as Video Editing Workstations? Does the Californian law say anything about "High-end" Video editing and 3D modelling/CAD workstations? (well looks like it does)
Lets hope this gives boost to distributed 3D rendering so people can run two compliant computers in tandem instated of one non-compliant to do gaming, cad, 3d modeling and video editing and use more power than a single non-compliant would. It would also pave the way for a dedicated OS version for "Slave GPU" computers.
