If you have installed CCleaner you likely have to reformat your system.

>CCleaner malware outbreak is much worse than it first appeared

>The recent CCleaner malware outbreak is much worse than it initially appeared, according to newly unearthed evidence. That evidence shows that the CCleaner malware infected at least 20 computers from a carefully selected list of high-profile technology companies with a mysterious payload.
>Because the CCleaner backdoor was active for 31 days, the total number of infected computers is "likely at least in the order of hundreds," researchers from Avast, the antivirus company that acquired CCleaner in July, said in their own analysis published Thursday.
>From September 12 to September 16, the highly advanced second stage was reserved for computers inside 20 companies or Web properties, including Cisco, Microsoft, Gmail, VMware, Akamai, Sony, and Samsung. The 20 computers that installed the payload were from eight of those targeted organizations, Avast said, without identifying which ones. Again, because the data covers only a small fraction of the time the backdoor was active, both Avast and Talos believe the true number of targets and victims was much bigger.

> Over four weeks, their lungs and brains grew, they sprouted wool, opened their eyes, wriggled around, and learned to swallow, according to a new study that takes the first step toward an artificial womb. One day, this device could help to bring premature human babies to term outside the uterus — but right now, it has only been tested on sheep.


> “It’s complete science fiction to think that you can take an embryo and get it through the early developmental process and put it on our machine without the mother being the critical element there,” he says.


> Instead, the point of developing an external womb — which his team calls the Biobag — is to give infants born months too early a more natural, uterus-like environment to continue developing in, Flake says.


http://archive.li/XEKMx

> Yoshinori Kuwabara, chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Juntendo University in Tokyo, has been working on artificial placentas for a decade. His interest grew out of his clinical experience with premature infants, and as he writes in a recent abstract, ”It goes without saying that the ideal situation for the immature fetus is growth within the normal environment of the maternal organism.”


> Kuwabara and his associates have kept the goat fetuses in this environment for as long as three weeks. But the doctor’s team ran into problems with circulatory failure, along with many other technical difficulties. Pressed to speculate on the future, Kuwabara cautiously predicts that ”it should be possible to extend the length” and, ultimately, ”this can be applied to human beings.”

I don't see this actually replacing women in any realistic sense, as a child ideally should grow up with a mother's care. However, it would BTFO any argument that abortion is necessary "to secure the rights of women," as an unwanted child could simply be placed into an artificial womb and after being "birthed" be given up for adoption.

One disturbing possibility could be that this is used to create clone soldiers who could be easily indoctrinated from birth to serve the elites.

Although, that's typical of the theory, there is application magnetically.
>Magnetism is found throughout the Universe. Magnetic fields are known to exist in planets, stars, accretion disks, the interstellar medium, galaxies and in active galactic nulcei (cf. the article on galactic magnetic fields). Often these magnetic fields are generated and maintained by magnetohydrodynamic dynamo action (e.g. the solar dynamo or planetary dynamos, which are described by hydromagnetic dynamo theory), and in many cases the magnetic field is dynamically dominant, determining the evolution of the object.
Topics studied within MHD include typical computational astrophysics topics, such as magneto-convection, MHD turbulence and hydromagnetic dynamo action. Typically, a multitude of intermittent magnetic structures are generated in such systems, e.g. magnetic flux tubes, loops, filaments and arcades. On the Sun and other stars, these magnetic structures may take the form of cool spots (sunspots) and magnetic bright points.
Magnetic structures can store enormous amounts of energy that may be released through reconnection of magnetic field lines (MHD reconnection) leading to solar flares and stellar or even galactic eruptions. It is in this way that the Sun causes storms in the heliospherical magnetic field and ultimately aurorae and space weather.

I bought a new laptop earlier this year after Windows 10 made my last one of 7 years practically unusable. I dual boot with Mint 18.1 and it feels a lot like Windows 7. I use it for school and internet as well as storage space for pics I've found around the web.

I think the main reason I like Linux, coming from Windows, is the freedom of choice, such as how it only updates what I want when I want. I've had more than several occasions in class where I'm taking a test or a quiz and Windows 10 decides that it's the perfect time to install updates.

Those pictures… heavy special snowflake syndrome. Women's solution to personal shortcomings: more style. Not reflecting and changing. Rather trying to make the look work more (which fails because if you're the problem you've got to fix that…).

I know many people fail at personal change where it's necessary but only women try to make the look work and if that doesn't work out everybody but themselves is to blame for whatever doesn't fit into their personal view of the world.
On top of that it's often a guessing what's wrong or what they refer to as they constantly avoid to clearly point at or name an issue. All part of the "you don't understand" victim role and to make their special logic work because if you neither know what they're refering to nor what's the issue with it you can't get on the argumentative level with them. It's nerve-racking.

A bit of backstory to begin: earlier today, I got into a conversation about quantum mechanics, more specifically the part of it where the mere act of observing particles can change their properties or behavior. That alone is a confusing concept, but now let me ask you all a question.

Given that quite a few of you believe in meme magic and the human mind's ability to influence the physical world around it, can any of you offer an idea based around this to help explain quantum mechanics?

I feel like I'm close to an answer, whether it's right or not I'm not sure, but I want to hear your results. Also, this is here and not in /vx/ because this seems more like a science issue than a paranormal one to me. Pic unrelated.

I have no deep knowledge of quantum mechanics. But I can give you an simple example of how observation changes the property.
If you take light you can measure it in two ways:
>Wavelength
>Photon count
When you measure wavelength light is an wave
When you measure photon count light is particles

Okay first off, let us define a term
Quantum Mechanics
>the branch of mechanics that deals with the mathematical description of the motion and interaction of subatomic particles, incorporating the concepts of quantization of energy, wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, and the correspondence principle.
So quantum mechanics is the behavior of subatomic particles (protons, neutrons, and electrons) and how they move.
The whole observing them changes their state is a Schrödinger's cat problem. Until we observe the atom, we don't know its state. But once we do observe it, we know for certain its state.
The way I see it?
Quantum mechanics will always happen with or without us.
But I believe the harnessing of it could result in alchemy.
If we discover a way to make an element, e.g. Mercury, give out or release an atom of hydrogen, then that atom becomes gold.
The problem would be the technology required to do this.
Can we influnce it with our minds?

OP here, I'm already somewhat familiar with these aspects of it to the degree of an average science enthusiast. However, I was looking for one of the people like Vril who believe in what I was talking about to weigh in, and get their say on the matter given the prompt. Otherwise, quantum mechanics follows no set of rules directly applicable to the macroscopic world except for a few exceptions.

 No.728

>believe in meme magic and human min-
Oh, you have been repeatedly deluded by retarded press.

Observation requires interaction. To see anything, you need to throw a particle (photon, light) and have it reflect back, then measure that particle.
In the act of observing, said particle influences the properties of the observed object, no matter how small. The smaller you get, the bigger the influence is, until you cannot accurately predict the position of a single electron without directly influencing it. Observation implies capturing the change of movement.

The Copenhagen is inherently incorrect because it takes this property and spreads it to basically everything as if artificially stapling our own view of the universe onto all of physics. It postulates that the world of quantum physics is inherently non-deterministic, and bases most of its knowledgebase on pure statistics. It is good in practice for sole observation, but not for formulation of physical law. The position of every particle in the world is definite and real. That we cannot know said position without changing it doesn't mean that the universe can't, either.
