Did Barbara McClintlock actually do what she is claimed to have done, or is this once again another case of a woman taking credit for the discoveries of a man?
No, she did the important part.

If somebodies goal was to build a device to beacon Earth to any aliens out there on purpose to spite Zoo Hypothesis folks, what might such a device look like?

Doesn't RF fall off really quickly to background noise relative to cosmic distances?
An artificial GRBeacon is pretty intense. The Feds and the Russians and all them would probably get upset.
Anything feasible?

soientists are unable or unwilling to earn money for themselves honestly through productive, useful activities, so instead they invent endless contrived doomsday scenarios in order to justify gaining access to funds which they are unable or unwilling to earn on an legitimate basis.
And they sell them with the exact same rhetoric and examples as their previous doomsday scenarios, such as global cooling also being about mass third world migration.

11 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
if you have an eyepiece projection adapter, take closeups of the core and then unsharp mask them, you can see the core's rotation that way sometimes
Is it doable with amateur equipment? Sounds interesting.
should be, core region has very high surface brightness, so good signal to noise even at stupidly high magnifications.
A schmidt cassegrain would be the optimal choice for that. If I ever buy one in the future I will definitely try this. Would be fun to do some scientific observations instead of just taking some fancy pictures.
its just a fancier picture, but its nice to be able to see something which moves at better than a snail's pace and has some unpredictable behaviors. sometimes you get to see a chunk of debris get ejected, thats always a big show with comets.

the IRS electronically watches your bank account, they know exactly how much you need to survive and how much they need to steal to keep you constantly working and in desperate need of ever more money. They don't even need AI to do all that, they've been doing it for a long time already, software upgrades will only make it that much more efficient.

>MusicLM: Generating Music From Text
I feel it bros. The acceleration.
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
to be clear afaik it's not the first. riffusion and mubert existed before but this outperforms it (apparently)
>Our experiments show through quantitative metrics and human evaluations that MusicLM outperforms previous systems such as Mubert (Mubert-Inc, 2022) and Riffusion (Forsgren & Martiros, 2022), both in terms of quality and adherence to the caption. Furthermore, since describing some aspects of music with words can be difficult or even impossible, we show how our method supports conditioning signals beyond text. Concretely, we extend MusicLM to accept an additional melody in the form of audio (e.g., whistling, humming) as conditioning to generate a music clip that follows the desired melody, rendered in the style described by the text prompt.

Do ruminance have nitrogen fixing bacteria?
10 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
I think mainly because of availability issues it isn't used much in the areas I'm familiar with. Like you say the lactic acid can be a problem if dietary imbalances occur.

Silage is used more commonly in dairy than meat primarily due to cost. The consumer is also very fussy about how their milk tastes so the diet of the dairy cow is... Somewhat unique and expensive in general.
Meant to add that I had an interest in novel feedstocks like Spirulina and duckweed to increase wue but industry resists any kind of innovation.
Is that with some sort of hydroponics system?
We used to be dairy but now we just buy in stirks to raise and fatten off.
They graze over summer beef fattened on ad lib maize and twice a day they get a cereal blend
Yea like hydroponics in a greenhouse with the air going through a dehumidification process. It's arid here. Lentils/wheat/canola.

About six months of the year there is only bare dirt. Then winter rains and you can sow some pasture. The ewes can be pushed into estrus a bit earlier when you have enough water to surround them with a little greenery and put the rams in a neighbouring paddock. Gives your lambs a headstart on the short pasture season.

Then they lamb, you get enough feed to get the lambs to market at the same time as your pasture dries out. Then you sow wheat/lentils/canola and switch the stock onto maintenance feed. They will be skin and bones by next spring but hopefully there's enough grain harvest to fatten them just prior to the winter rains next year.

Dryland farming is about as brutal as it gets.
I can imagine.
we're primarily temperate rainfed where I am.
You can graze about 6 months of the year but it gets cold and wet in winter, so most stock are housed then, although the grass will continue to grow through most of it if slowly but the ground gets so soft the paddocks would get poached. We lease some field to allow low density sheep grazing and we run 10-20 year yearling stirks on the steeper freedraining ground if they're tough enough to outwinter.
Further north from here the winters are much worse with persistent snow and ice but we have a quirk of geography that leaves us comparatively warm and snow free.
It's still a frustrating ordeal to make it economically viable.

is there any new data on the effect of the vacc on female and male fertility or the gonads?
There were some studies in early 2021. (e.g. the one that showed that mRNA accumulates in the ovaries after 48h)
But it has been 2 years and there barely has been new data on this (which seems to be next to the cardiovascular issues and the CJD, the most important thing )

Also, does the kinetic isotope effect have any other interesting uses in broader chemistry? It seems like an interesting tool.
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
generally it reduces metabolic rate and can help prevent the formation of bad metabolites. basically another lever for ADME/PK/PD. seems fairly save (some weirdo was in charge of testing this and got a dog to like 15% D2O before seeing effects). Austedo passed trials and there are a few others in P3.
How long have they been tested for? 15% D2O in blood is damn absurd but could small increase have negative effects in the long term?
Within chemistry, deuterated molecules are particularly useful in scientific studies. Combined with H-NMR spectrocopy deuterated molecules are used for investigating reaction kinetics and cellular metabolism. I suppose this is important for drug development.

In terms of more practical uses, I suppose some deuterated drugs might be metabolised differently, but I can't imagine the increased cost of manufacturing would be worth it.
If adderall is basically amphetamine, could i theoretically extract said amphetamine and add a stroichiometric quantity of methyl iodide to get methamphetamine?
I'd have said you'd be better off doing a reductive amination with formaldehyde and a reducing agent such as STAB
Theoretically of course
The issue with direct methylation is the secondary amine is usually more nucleophilic than the primary due to the electron-donating effects of alkyl groups, so you will form a tertiary amine as an unwanted side product

Not familiar with Wolfram.
But you'd probably want to create the following set right?
[math]X := \{a \in \mathbb{R} | \lim_\limits{x \uparrow a}f(x) \not = \lim_\limits{x \downarrow a}f(x)\}[/math].
Also, I have never heard of "equivalence class" before this. I looked at video, and I don't know.
>I have never heard of "equivalence class"
How did you end up here?
Is it just me or is the underlying idea that would make everything really simple and easy to understand often shrouded in rigor, and it takes a lot of time to see through the rigor and find the idea?

Case in point: I was reading https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/3672636/show-that-there-exists-a-rectangle-such-that-each-of-its-four-vertices-are-of-sa

I spent a _lot_ of time on the first two paragraphs until i skipped a tiny bit ahead, saw "two line segments L1 and L2 such that they have the same sequence of colouring" and instantly got the solution. I literally could have skipped everything, read "two line segments with the same sequence of colouring" and would've instantly generated the proof myself.
No, most mathematical writing is awful. Sometimes on purpose.

" P only if Q "

since [math] \neg Q \to \neg P [/math]
Is that correct?
Only in this case. Only when things are in a specific arrangement or state. Yes it sounds retarded and redundant.
If and only if === Only if.
