There are other factors that also influence efficiency. The temperature difference only governs the max theoretical efficiency.

It's also proportional to the real efficiency in any situation and pretty much all other factors that affect efficiency will be static for a given device. That's why I said it determines the efficiency.

So why wasn't MERS called SARS-CoV-2 if they're the same thing? I think you're placing too much importance on the name. Had SARS-CoV-2 been discovered in the middle east, it'd likely be MERS-2, or if it'd been discovered in North America, it'd likely have an entirely new name.

oh nonono jewbros we got to cocky

if it were about having the most geniuses then they should be following eugenics better themselves.
Having more 180+ IQ scientists and mathematicians doesn't translate directly to competition since the wealth/IQ relation plateaus at the upper end. Being ultra rich and powerful is partly having at least ~130 IQ but mostly sheer luck and networking. The insulated old boys club of big money jews would barely be under more competition to a smarter population.

I thinks it's even more evil than the somewhat reasonable motive of limitting competition.
I think they would rather guarantee their position as kings of future brazilworld than risk having another Newton out there making discoveries that could shift the course of history.

First you have to find a way to power it virtually without having to recharge it every day (and this is the hard part); then you have to find a way to connect the nerves, blood vessels and muscle/bone/other organs to the prosthetic without any tissue damage and without any kind of delay in the trasmission of neuronal signal.
After that, you have to find a way to not having to change the prosthetic every 5-10 years because it can't repair itself and while it could be easy (it is not) to change a limb, it wouldn't be to change some other organs.
I give it another 30-40 years before we'll see technologies as you see in your videogames but I personally think it will be only a temporary solution to a problem better dealt with biotechs and regenerative medicine

>First you have to find a way to power it virtually without having to recharge it every day
Fuel, batteries, charge in a socket. Power doesn't seem the issue, if the limb is like an arm or leg then there's plenty space for battery storage.

>then you have to find a way to connect the nerves, blood vessels and muscle/bone/other organs to the prosthetic without any tissue damage and without any kind of delay in the trasmission of neuronal signal.
The artificial limbs don't need to be connected to nerves and blood vessels.

There's no modern technology that doesn't get replaced every 5-10 years. That's a lot of time for material engineering to advance, for lighter prosthetics, more accurate EEGs, better power consumption and more functionality. The only issue would be cost; but I'm sure the medical companies and banks would love to offer you a credit card and charge you interest on your limb over 15 years without issue.

>Power doesn't seem the issue, if the limb is like an arm or leg then there's plenty space for battery storage
A battery needs to be recharged, the point is to find a way to not have to.
Also, modern batteries are efficient but not that much
>The artificial limbs don't need to be connected to nerves and blood vessels
If you want it to respond to your thoughts as a normal limb would, yes it does. Trans-cutaneal sensors are not that sensitive and the only solution we have found right now for the problem is to surgically reposition under the skin the nerve you want to pick up
>There's no modern technology that doesn't get replaced every 5-10 years
You don't get it, prosthetic surgery is difficult and dangerous, even more so each time you have to substitute the broken prosthetic with a new one: that's why knee prosthetics, for example, are usually left as a last measure and are not implanted before a certain age (if possible), because it's dangerous to change them and you have to do it every 10 years or so
>There's no modern technology that doesn't get replaced every 5-10 years
I mean that the most feasible and practical solution to the prosthetic problem is to just re-grow the limb/organ or at least clone it and transplant it

No it's not a whole bunch of laws regard things as being illegal despite it only impacting and doesn't even account for when an action doesn't in any way impact someone else in the slightest if an inaction still wouldn't benefit them.

Not to mention that people can have a huge damaging impact on someones without it ever even being illegal so no your reasoning doesn't make the slightest sense whatsoever.

I studied bioingeniering, but I fall in love with programming. I already finished my mayor but I intend to take a masters in Computer Science/Software engineer.

I want to fill my knowledge gaps by reading 5 to 8 books, 1 or 2 each month till november (application deadlines).

To those well versed in the subject, which books would you recommend?

My ultimate goal is to shift or start in the BlockChain-Crypto currency area, so if you have any preferred universities just shoot the name of the programme and I'll look the curriculum myself ;)

Any help appreciat it!
