>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.

>In before eating pussy and ass a day cures obesity and allergies. (Fecal transplants Do work though.) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fecal_bacteriotherapy

(People also can do it themselves apparently…)(Saline solution and poo in a reverse enema)


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.

Adobe is a building material made from earth and organic materials. Adobe is Spanish for mudbrick, but in some English-speaking regions of Spanish heritage, the term is used to refer to any kind of earth construction. Most adobe buildings are similar in appearance to cob and rammed earth buildings. Adobe is among the earliest building materials, and is used throughout the world.

Post some fucking plants
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.

File: 1562619633839.jpg (433.81 KB, 800x1143, 800px-Amorphophallus_titan….jpg)

Amorphophallus titanum, also known as the titan arum, is a flowering plant with the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world. The titan arum's inflorescence is not as large as that of the talipot palm, Corypha umbraculifera, but the inflorescence of the talipot palm is branched rather than unbranched. The species is endemic to Sumatra.

Due to its odor, which is like the smell of a rotting corpse or carcass, the titan arum is characterized as a carrion flower, and is also known as the corpse flower or corpse plant (Indonesian: bunga bangkai – bunga means flower, while bangkai can be translated as corpse, cadaver, or carrion). For the same reason, the title corpse flower is also attributed to the genus Rafflesia.

Welwitschia is a monotypic gymnosperm genus, comprising solely the distinctive Welwitschia mirabilis, endemic to the Namib desert within Namibia and Angola. The plant is commonly known simply as welwitschia in English, but the name tree tumbo is also used. It is called kharos or khurub in Nama, tweeblaarkanniedood in Afrikaans, nyanka in Damara, and onyanga in Herero. Welwitschia is the only living genus of the family Welwitschiaceae and order Welwitschiales, in the division Gnetophyta. Informal sources commonly refer to the plant as a "living fossil".

A star sapphire is a type of sapphire that exhibits a star-like phenomenon known as asterism; red stones are known as "star rubies". Star sapphires contain intersecting needle-like inclusions following the underlying crystal structure that causes the appearance of a six-rayed "star"-shaped pattern when viewed with a single overhead light source. The inclusion is often the mineral rutile, a mineral composed primarily of titanium dioxide.

The third highest mountain in north america is only 17 miles away from sea level, in the Tann Fiord near Icy Bay Alaska.
In October 2015, there was a landslide on the mountain that generated a tsunami wave over 500 ft high that swept over Icy Bay.

>The wave that followed ripped spruce from 1,700 feet up a mountain slope and left trimlines in the bay that are visible today.

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.

>Google's decision to suspend Huawei's use of some parts of the Android operating system will send shockwaves through the smartphone market. Huawei is the second biggest smartphone maker but relies on the Android operating system, which is effectively run by Google, as the engine of its devices. Google will block Huawei's use of Android updates, apart from those made available in the open-source version of the operating system, according to Reuters.

>In a statement Huawei said: "Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android's key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefited both users and the industry.

>"We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally," it said.

>Google's move comes after the US Department of Commerce last week added Huawei to its 'Entity List' because the department said it had information that led it to conclude that Huawei is engaged in activities that are contrary to US national security or foreign policy interest. US companies cannot transfer technology to a company on that list without a licence from the US government.

>At the time, Huawei said the move would do significant economic harm to the American companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of thousands of American jobs, "and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist on the global supply chain".

>Google has said that for current Huawei users nothing changes yet. "We assure you while we are complying with all US gov't requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device," it said.

>When security researchers disclosed a series of major vulnerabilities impacting Intel processors back in January 2018, it was clear that “Meltdown” and “Spectre” were indeed serious — and wouldn’t be the only exploits of multi-threading chips. Now a new Intel chip vulnerability nicknamed “ZombieLoad” has been revealed to the public, and though it’s already being patched by three major operating system makers, there’s some bad news: full protection could reduce your CPU’s performance by up to 40%.
>Referred to by the more technical name “Microarchitectural Data Sampling,” the ZombieLoad exploit enables an attacker to access privileged data across trust boundaries. In a cloud hosting environment, it could enable one virtual machine to improperly access information from another; researchers also showed that it could be used for app surveillance and password acquisition. The vulnerability broadly impacts operating systems that run on Intel chips, including Android, Chrome, Linux, macOS, and Windows.

>In a just-published support document, Apple suggests that full ZombieLoad mitigation will require Intel chip users to disable Intel’s hyper-threading processing feature — a major selling point of the chipmaker’s CPUs. During testing this month, Apple says that it found “as much as a 40 percent reduction in performance with tests that include multithreaded workloads and public benchmarks,” though actual performance impacts will vary between machines.

>An Intel page discussing the vulnerabilities downplays the performance impacts, suggesting that the performance impact is small: up to 3% without disabling hyper-threading, and up to 8-9% with hyper-threading disabled, though included charts show tinier changes using the latest, high-end Intel Core i9-9900K processors.

>Intel underscores that disabling hyper-threading isn’t really necessary for some users: consequently, unless it’s necessary for a given customer’s workloads and security environment, it says that it’s “not recommending that Intel HT be disabled, and it’s important to understand that doing so does not alone provide protection against MDS.”



You know, all I can think about during the waves of Intel exploits is two things:
One, the stock bumps AMD gets every time,
Two, just how many vulnerabilities AMD has that haven't been brought to light.


That is true. But it could be the reason Intel was ahead in the speed race, they cut corners and it has come back and bit them now.
