Diamond is a solid form of the element carbon with its atoms arranged in a crystal structure called diamond cubic. At room temperature and pressure, another solid form of carbon known as graphite is the chemically stable form, but diamond almost never converts to it. Diamond has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any natural material, properties that are utilized in major industrial applications such as cutting and polishing tools. They are also the reason that diamond anvil cells can subject materials to pressures found deep in the Earth.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a material from two naturally-occurring polymers that could offer an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional plastic packaging for food and consumer goods. The material is made by layering cellulose – the most abundant biopolymer on Earth – with chitin, which is widely found in shellfish, insects and fung

3D-printed objects always look and feel inferior to objects made with traditional manufacturing processes and materials. Tethonite is different: It’s a 3D-printed ceramic compound that, when fired and cured, looks identical to ceramic made by hand or industrial machines. Not only could Tethonite push the boundaries of the ceramic arts by making increasingly intricate designs possible; it also potentially has wide-ranging consumer applications. “Companies like Apple want to figure out new ways to use ceramics, because it’s such an incredible material,” says Dent. “It’s so hard, subtle, and luminous, but unlike metal, ceramic is also brittle.” It breaks, which is why you don’t see it in many gadgets (although the Apple Watch Edition recently introduced a high-end ceramic model). Tethonite could let companies like Apple intimately combine the best qualities of metal and ceramics to create resilient new devices.

Pic is a dragon's blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari). They are named for the red sap that they produce and look like something out of a sci-fi movie. They are native to the socotra archipelago in Yemen.
The sap can be used for dyes, medication, lipstick, or varnish.
The densely packed crown of the tree provides shade to the trees roots and helps to prevent water from evaporating.

I don't know if they will, but an AI court system might be better than what we currently have.


If we dont destroy ourselves till then, sure A.I. Is a natural step in human evolution, machines might outlive our race somewhere in the future.
Social problems (racism against machines?) Will always be present for a few generations thought


why would we want them to? the risk of something terrible happening outweighs any precived benefits.


Because AI would remove the human element from the equation. AI doesn't have to be perfect, just better than humans.

Tests have been done in the 60s.
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.

>The gut–brain axis is the biochemical signaling that takes place between the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and the central nervous system (CNS).[1] The term "gut–brain axis" is occasionally used to refer to the role of the gut flora in the interplay as well, whereas the term "microbiome–gut–brain axis" explicitly includes the role of gut flora in the biochemical signaling events that take place between the GI tract and CNS.[1][2][3]

So the types of microbes in your gut can affect your brain. Does anyone know of any nootropic strains of probiotics?


No idea about what kind of microbes would be the best. I remember something about there being enough neurons lining the gut to give gut feelings.


>I remember something about there being enough neurons lining the gut to give gut feelings.
Do you have source on that? It's not that I don't believe you, but that sounds like an interesting read.


Just looked it up and I'm mistaken about being solely responsible for 'gut feelings' more of a cross and interaction of nervous systems.
So the digestive system neurons are roughly the total amount in 2/3rds of a cat.
Not even including the microbial biome interaction. Some of the bacteria and stuff also produce enzymes and neurotransmitters and aid in the breakdown of food.
Also the microbial gene expression and population changes very fast.

It looks like proper gut biome at the start (vaginal seeding and breast feeding) (not destroying it all with anti-bacterial medication) reduces the chance of obesity, and allergies.

Just from a quick search, but it looks like most researchers onky have a rough idea on what is going on with specific strains of bacteria.
The best guess is maximize different foods and eat fermented foods.

I wonder how the microbiome of a genius compares to the microbiome of the average person.


>nootropic strains of probiotics

thats the only one i know the exact name of, but also look for butyrate-producing bacteria. I know for a fact that the probiotics commonly found in yoghurt, kombucha, kimchi etc are worthless and do nothing for your health except, for better or worse, take up space that would otherwise be taken up by other bacteria. unless you are going to be taking some exotic probiotic such as above mentioned, its not worth it. gut bacteria makes up a majority of the DNA in your body, there is no benefit in making it all faggy kombucha bacteria.

Exif data is meta data that is saved every time you take a photo. Be it with regular cameras or smartphone cameras. It may work with web cam too but I never tried it before so I don't know.

From what I learned, data saved varies depending on the device and currents settings when the image was taken. My android for instance, only camptures unimportant stuff aside for maybe date. I always have geo location turned off so exif data never contains my location when I take a photo.

Here is a neat article about exif data and how to modify or delete it. https://www.howtogeek.com/203592/what-is-exif-data-and-how-to-remove-it/

iirc mspaint doesn't keep exif data, so a trick back in the ol' days was to just resave it with paint.
I'm pretty sure most modern art programs have an option to not save it.
I feel like it should also be mentioned that this only applies to jpeg and a few other files designed for photographs.
Pic related is Krita export options for metadata on JPG, I believe photoshit and GIMP can also turn if off.


Why is Photoshop bad?


Some people don't like it because photoshop '97 was the original one and every new version is just a little meaningless upgrade from the '97 version.
Some people hate it because it's expensive/because adobe is a shit company.
Some people hate it because it's popular.

Love it or hate it, it's as good as a tool as any other in the market.


Don’t forget that your camera sensor has unique patterns of pixel sensitivity that can allow purely bitmap-based tracking.

That's pretty cool.


No it isn't, stop believing Jewish lies.
I don't believe it. The way they did it, and considering who supposedly discovered it, I think it's bullshit. In fact, they may have made up the whole picture, though I reckon it is an actual picture, just not of a "black hole", which don't exist, or if they do exist, our description of them being "holes" in space-time are wrong, obviously, I hope I don't have to explain why that's retarded.


It's not a real photo, it's as close as we can get to a "real" photo but it is actually a bunch of strings of information that where feed to an algorithm that calculated the black hole should look like that.
Aka a glorified artistic representation of a black hole.
You can't take a picture of a black hole because the thing absorbs the light, making it simply impossible to see, it is literally invisible to the human eye.

>"holes" in space-time

That's just speculation, the black hole is just a mass of compressed matter with quite a heavy weight, the weight of the black hole makes it's gravitational pull strong enough to absorb light (which is a radio signal) and any other piece of matter that's around it.

China can do it because they do not have the same ethics as we western people do. That's their force. That's why they are doing this, they don't fear the repercussions, if they can experiment on stem cells, embryos or fetus, they have no ethics to wonder if they should do it or not, they will. They do clonage, they test drugs, that's the communist mentality, but is it morally right?
If the moral is to be the winner at some game, let's imitate china and become soulless machines, with AI and cameras, and suicide nests. If the moral is the well being it's gonna be different.
