Between every pair of adjacent bars put a point at the average height of the bars.
So if you have bars with height h, h' you'd put a point at (h+h') / 2.

Now for any bar with height h and it's pair of adjacent points (x0, y0) (x1, y1), create a polynomial

y0 + (x-x0)(y1 - y0) / (x1 - x0) + k (x-x0)(x-x1)

Where you pick k so so that integral of the polynomial over [x0, x1] is the same as the are of the bar, h*(x1-x0).

Climate change is not directly related to supply-demand considerations (apart from companies making public gestures of good will about the issue to attract green-minded customers) and carbon emissions have no cost in an unregulated market, so there's zero reason to think the free market would be able to solve the problem until well after it's too late.
Governments need to impose these economic incentives to reduce carbon output through regulations and tax credit systems, as well as subsidizing renewable technologies until they become competitive with hydrocarbons on their own.
Anyone who says we should let the "free market" solve this issue is 100% a shill for the companies who benefit from inaction and the status quo.

Flint's a good example of how you fix a problem.. Have you looked at its status for updated or just using its past history?
The big issue for Flint is lead levels reached unacceptable levels due to older infrastructure of lead based pipes that leeched into the drinking supply. Its also now at acceptable levels while the lead pipes are slowly being replaced. This was the fault of civil engineers not being psychic to know the harmful effects of lead.
Which have only been actively reduced in human consumption over the past 50 years.

>> No.11136358

Physics is a huge field, and most of it has to do with quantum physics. Don't expect you will be able to learn everything from a single textbook.

Most of those terms you listed would be more likely to be explained in a condensed matter textbook. Although "Berry phase" is something that might be explained in a good QM textbook (if it's not in Griffith's try reading the wikipedia page), and make sure you read about the Bloch theorem and everything related to that in Griffith's if you want to jump into condensed matter.

>> No.11136377

Yeah I just double checked. Chapter 10 in Griffiths is on Berry phase. He talks about solids in chapter 5, which is an intro to a solid state textbook, which is what you really want to look at if you want to start to understand those topics (I've never even heard of a Cantor alloy, btw)

I'm pretty sure this question should be impossible to answer as we don't fully understand consciousness yet but maybe someone could chip in and give their two cents or a fresh angle.

In my mind they would just die instantly as the Animal doesn't know how to operate its body or breathe.

If you mangled human and fly matter together like in the fly, the results would probably resemble radiation poisoning or cancer. Now it depends on what you mean by mind, but yeah if you include the autonomic nervous system as part of the mind, then yes, it's instant death because it can't breath. If the spinal cord and the autonomic nervous system is preserved then the fly brain's going to have a difficult time seeing. Fly brains are adapted to work with compound eyes which are completely different from how our eyes work. IIRC fly eyes are mainly based around optic flow so they can avoid obstacles, although they may possess some object recognition capability. This has been studied quite a bit. I also don't think that a fly could learn to walk upright. Humans are big enough that signal lag time is a problem. We probably compensate for this with the cerebellum and other brain circuits which help predict things. The cerebellum is actually unnecessary, but without it, it seems to be more difficult to accomplish actions well. Fly brains probably do not have much in the way of motion planning circuitry either, so it will be difficult for them to control limbs. The fly brain might be able to make the human body crawl by running central pattern generator circuitry which we believe exists in the spinal cord, but it'll probably be pretty jerky.

I've been doing a bit of reading regarding aging and its causes.

As everyone is well aware, aging is supposedly just the result of improperly replicated DNA resulting in imperfect cells and function.

So what I've gathered from this, and from where future research is headed is this:

Halting or reversing aging in future may be possible, however, access to a younger 'pristine' form of ones DNA will make the earlier applications of this technology possible.

Apparently DNA is pretty sturdy stuff, but I have also read that it starts degrading in storage in under a year. Storing a -80 Deg/C in liquid nitrogen storage tanks seems to be the only way of flawlessly storing DNA indefinitely. Who the fuck has Dewar storage tanks lying around though right?

My question is this:

Does anybody know of any commercial enterprises that offer this service. Or is anyone aware of any other cheap/DIY method of reliably preserving DNA?

This is completely untrue, the cause is the progressive mismetallation of proteins/enzymes.

Which in turn causes ____?

I'm not here to discuss the finer mechanisms of aging. Broadly speaking what I said is true. What I am asking is how to preserve this.

But....I'm pretty sure its still incredibly hard to get your entire genome digitally sequenced right?

Which in turn causes what? Mismetallated proteins cannot work as "intended" which directly leads to the deterioration we see.

Okay. Thanks for the lesson.

Lop Nur
Used to be a lake / marshland area. Then it became a nuclear testing site. Then a fertiliser plant where they, iirc, skim rare salts out of the “lake” water.
Iirc the commies diverted water away from it in a project so it dried up. Before that, the location of the lake would wander around, hence its name, meaning “wandering lake”.
Ancient Chinese sources claim it used to be massive.

Horse shit. i lived in Taipei for years. Downtown tokyo has way more tall buildings than Taipei.
Before Taipei 101 the tallest building was the Mitsukoshi Building and it wasn't even 50 floor tall.
Shit, the picture of Taipei you're showing is focused on only a couple blocks. When I first moved there I lived in the Hyatt, that U-shaped building right above that squatty pyramid looking building (It's a big ass trade center).
The thing with Taiwan, even more than Japan, is that most of the cities are super dense because there's literally nowhere else to build except in river valleys and right at the coast.
The scale between those two pictures is fucked.

>"The right" wants to convince you that everybody can succeed, if only would they pick up their ass, and work.
No, that's also part of the leftist view.
The right's view is that achievement is limited by innate ability, and innate ability isn't equal. Their problem is they conflate happenstance (e.g. being born rich) with ability.

is it that due to the flat top of the main wing theres lower pressure inside the fin than outside, and the fins just use this effect for lateral forces?
