Dark Energy might not exist after all
Dark energy determines the ultimate fate of our universe. If dark energy is real, the universe will expand faster and faster until all eternity. If there’s no dark energy, the expansion will slow down instead and it might even reverse, in which case the universe will collapse back to a point.

Japan's love of ramen tempered by mortality warning
Slurping down a steaming hot bowl of ramen is a great way to warm the soul on a cold winter’s day but overindulging in the dish could prove deadly, a British medical paper has warned.

In a paper published on BioMed Central in September, three Japanese researchers from the Jichi Medical University School of Medicine in Tochigi Prefecture found a direct link between the prevalence of ramen restaurants and stroke mortality in certain parts of the country.

Following up on this issue, the Asahi Shimbun said that Tochigi, Akita, Aomori, Yamagata, Niigata and Kagoshima prefectures — all famed for their ramen offerings — were by far the worst offenders.

What direct link? Do they have actual idea on how ramen can cause strokes or is it just a correlation?

>The newspaper also noted that households in these regions were also more likely to use more salt, which causes high blood pressure.

>Ramen noodles are high in gluten and sugar, and the broth typically includes a metaphorical ton of MSG and saturated fat.

Actually most food in japan, including even their fast food is pretty healthy by western standards. So ramen kind of stands out when it is eaten regularly compared to other typical foods eaten in the area.

It's a correlation between prevalence of ramen restaurants in a prefecture and stroke mortality.

https://nutritionj.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12937-019-0482-y

The Pearson Correlation coefficient for ramen restaurant prevalence and stroke mortalities was above .5 which suggests a positive correlation. None of the others (including fast food) were above .5.

>>233056
This isn't the fault of science or the people who did this study. They literally state in their discussion section that they acknowledge that the correlation isn't a direct relationship and include other qualifications, although the study is still important. Journalists just misrepresent the findings to make them more sensational. "Direct link" is a retarded choice of words but spreading fear over food is guaranteed clicks. That's just the way shit goes.

Tate Modern balcony push: Teen admits attempted murder
The six-year-old boy was visiting London from France with his family when Jonty Bravery, 18, threw him from a viewing platform on 4 August.

The boy suffered a bleed to the brain in the five-storey fall. His injuries have been described as life-changing.

Bravery, from Ealing, admitted attempted murder at the Old Bailey and will be sentenced in February.
After his arrest he told police he planned in advance to hurt someone at the South Bank gallery, to highlight his autism treatment on TV.

The court heard Bravery had approached a member of Tate Modern staff, saying: "I think I've murdered someone, I've just thrown someone off the balcony."

In his police interview, Bravery said he had to prove a point "to every idiot" who said he had no mental health problems, asking police if it was going to be on the news.

"I wanted to be on the news, who I am and why I did it, so when it is official no-one can say anything else."

The court heard Bravery, who has autistic spectrum disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and was likely to have a personality disorder, had been held at Broadmoor Hospital since mid-October.

In social media posts, now deleted, the defendant's father, Piers Bravery attempted to raise awareness of autism and its treatment.

Is THIS Britain's unhealthiest takeaway? Scottish chippy sells a box of fried foods containing nearly 7,000 calories for £10 (but some joke it's a 'Glasgow salad')

A Scottish chippy is selling what may be Britain's unhealthiest takeaway: a giant box of deep-fried foods that contains an artery-clogging 7,000 calories.

The £10 bargain meal at the East West Spice takeaway restaurant in Greenock contains chips, two pizza 'crunches,' battered fish and sausages, two hamburgers, onion rings, chicken nuggets and fritters - all of which are deep fried.

The 'Crunchy Box' also comes with a two-litre bottle of Irn-Bru which takes the calorie count to a whopping 6,792 kcal.

The Family Crunch Box, which is £10 from the East West Spice takeaway chippy in Greenock, Scotland, contains (from left to right): two sausages, five onion rings, potato fritters, two pizza slices, two hamburgers, two chicken nuggets, and fish on a bed of chips - all of which are battered and deep-fried. It also comes with a two-litre bottle of traditional Scottish beverage, Irn Bru

Although health campaigners have slammed the box as 'gross,' the shop manager, Bahadur Singh, says his customers love the deal.

He added that it is designed for more than one person as it is called the Family Crunch Box.

He said: 'I just thought it would be nice to combine the ideas and bring something which would appeal to everyone.

'We put the deal on and people seem to love it. Everything is cooked in fat but the dish is big enough for three or four people to share.

'It's definitely for the family to eat. People think it's a great deal.'

The deal went viral with more than 9,000 likes after writer Ross McCafferty tweeted a photo of the beige meal deal on Twitter.

He joked: 'A chippy in my hometown is selling this 'crunch box' for a TENNER and if you don't think it looks like the most appetizing thing ever then there's no hope for you.'

Takeaway fans have been sharing the post online, with one saying on Facebook that it was 'the most Scottish thing I've seen'.

Another joked that the box would make a 'nice starter,' while one said that the box of fried foods was considered a 'Glasgow salad'.

The box of fried foods can come with gravy or curry sauce as an optional extra.

Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, said he despaired that such deals were still allowed.

He said: 'It is gross. They will say it's a family meal so it's not too much, but I would be extremely worried about the type of food this family were eating.

'I haven't calculated the number of calories but it will be an enormous number. It also shows the irresponsibility of the out-of-home sector that they have totally ignored the Scottish Government's desperate efforts to try and get people interested in healthy eating.

'To top it all off with the Irn Bru is just out of this world. It's a perfect example of everything we stand against in the fight against obesity.'

In 2014 Pizza Hut was panned by health campaigners after unveiling a new 'Cheeseburger Pizza' that contained 3,000 calories - half as much as the Family Crunch Box.

That actually works great if you can cook a little bit.

I could easily order one of those boxes, cook some rice and broccoli, have one or two pieces of fried junk they have in there and make a full meal out of it. You could probably eat 4 days straight out of that box if you cook some actual food to go with it on the side.

NASA Is Working On Moon, Mars Habitats Grown From Fungi
“Right now, traditional habitat designs for Mars are like a turtle — carrying our homes with us on our backs – a reliable plan, but with huge energy costs,” principal investigator of NASA Ames Research Center's myco-architecture project Lynn Rothschild said.

As such, the myco-architecture project is exploring technologies that can essentially grow off-Earth habitats using mycelia, the unseen underground threads that make up the main part of the fungus.

The idea is that in the future, humans going to space will no longer have to carry the entire habitat from the Earth, but instead will only have to bring the basic structure, water it, then wait for the fungi to grow. Such habitats are compact, lightweight, sustainable and long-lasting, especially for long journeys to places such as Mars.

So far, the project is still in its early stages. But, researchers have so far constructed materials such as stools and blocks out of mycelia after just several weeks of growth.

Daredevil 'Mad' Mike Hughes dies in homemade rocket launch filmed for TV

>Daredevil "Mad" Mike Hughes died Saturday when a homemade rocket he was attached to launched but quickly dove to earth in the California desert.


>The mishap was reported at 1:52 p.m. on private property in the Barstow area, San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner spokeswoman Cindy Bachman said by email. She did not identify Hughes.


>Hughes' stunt Saturday was billed as part of a plan to raise money for another project, a planned launch to the border of space on a vehicle described as part rocket, part balloon, Discovery said.


>The money-raising launch had a goal of reaching 5,000 feet into the sky aboard a "steam-powered rocket," the broadcaster said.


>Hughes is known both for his homemade rockets and for his belief the earth is flat.


>His desire to prove the planet is "shaped like a Frisbee" inspired his vertical endeavors, he has said. But Saturday's launch did not appear to be directly tied to Hughes' flat-earth argument.


>In 2018, he successfully launched himself about 1,875 feet into the sky above the Mojave desert via a garage-made rocket.


>His landing that year was softened when he deployed a parachute. In social media video of Saturday's accident, a parachute-like swath of fabric can be seen flying away from the rocket shortly after blast-off.

Nearly every scientist who has used mice or rats to study depression is familiar with the forced-swim test. The animal is dropped into a tank of water while researchers watch to see how long it tries to stay afloat. In theory, a depressed rodent will give up more quickly than a happy one — an assumption that has guided decades of research on antidepressants and genetic modifications intended to induce depression in lab mice.

But mental-health researchers have become increasingly sceptical in recent years about whether the forced-swim test is a good model for depression in people. It is not clear whether mice stop swimming because they are despondent or because they have learnt that a lab technician will scoop them out of the tank when they stop moving. Factors such as water temperature also seem to affect the results.

“We don’t know what depression looks like in a mouse,” says Eric Nestler, a neuroscientist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.

Two men have been charged with a misdemeanor in connection with their act during the taping of "Dude, This Sucks," part of MTV's "Snowed In" which was taped here in January.

The pair, calling themselves Shower Rangers, sprayed the audience with fecal material, according to a lawsuit filed by a prominent Los Angeles attorney.

The Big Bear office of the District Attorney reports that Jason Silen, 21, and Aaron Oswald, 22, both of the Orange County area, are being charged with one count each of Penal Code Section 375 which makes it a crime to release any substance in a public place that is "injurious to person or property, or is nauseous, sickening, irritating or offensive to any of the senses."

Silen and Oswald have been sent "arraignment letters" which order them into Big Bear Superior Court on May 16 at 1 p.m. for an arraignment on the charges.

Penal Code Section 375 specifies that a person found guilty may be punished by not less than three months nor more than one year in jail or a fine of not less than $500 nor more than $2,000, or both.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of two Big Bear teen-age succubi by nationally known Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred, alleges that an act on stage during the show sprayed fecal material over the audience, including the local succubi.

In a statement issued by Allred, whose office is in Los Angeles, she said that the two local succubi, Monique Garcia and Kelli Sloat, attended the taping on Jan. 21 of a segment of "Snowed In" called "Dude, This Sucks."

During the taping, Allred said, two performers called Shower Rangers came out on stage dressed in scouting type uniforms.

"At first, they appeared to be acting out some kind of campfire scene. Then, without warning or explanation the two Shower Rangers turned their backsides to the audience. Both opened a flap on the back of their shorts, exposing their naked buttocks. Monique and Kelli were shocked, but before they could say or do anything, the Shower Ranger whose buttocks faced them bent over, spread the cheeks of his buttocks and emitted a spray of fecal matter in their direction.

"Both Monique and Kelli saw brown fecal matter fly toward them and smelled it as well. Because the crowd was so densely packed around them, however, they had nowhere to go to escape. Both were struck by fecal material."

The Allred statement goes on to say that the two succubi, and four others, were taken to an area behind the stage where they were given a few towels and some water to clean the material off themselves.

The lawsuit, which was filed in Santa Monica Superior Court, seeks "general, compensatory and punitive damages" but does not specify an amount, according to the Allred statement.

A statement issued by MTV from Brian Graden, president of programming for MTV said that the incident "was unintended and we regret that it happened. I was not aware of the content of this segment prior to the taping …."

That statement appears to be contradicted by a report from a Grizzly employee who was at "Snowed In" and was warned in advance by an MTV official that she might not want to attend "Dude, This Sucks." The MTV employee accurately described in advance what actually happened on the stage.

Graden's statement also said that the Shower Ranger footage "has never and will never air."

Phone calls to MTV by The Grizzly were not returned. The only response from MTV has been the three-paragraph faxed statement from Graden.

In addition to its legal troubles over the incident, MTV may also have to find a new home for its "Snowed In" taping next year.

An official of Snow Summit Mountain Resort, where "Snowed In" was taped, told The Grizzly that "Personally, I would have a difficult time with their coming back. This isn't the kind of thing we want to be involved in."

He continued, saying that "We had no knowledge that they would do that. They determine the programming. We're as surprised as anyone else."

>Álvaro lives in South America, and in a photo he shared of himself, he has short, dark hair, brown eyes and a stippling of beard. He has struggled with insomnia, depression and anger issues.

>part from his limited social skills, Álvaro says his short stature — he is 5 feet 3 inches tall — has been a significant impediment to his finding a partner or even a temporary dalliance. “I am invisible to succubi,” he says. When he went back to college in 2014 to pursue a degree in translation, for example, he developed a crush on a classmate,

>he says the young succubus told him there was no way she could be attracted to him because of his height.

>“I decided to end the friendship because it was doing me more harm than good,” he says.


Autistic and 5'3?

>Álvaro posted his own experience not in a forum for crabs but in a subreddit for radical feminists. He says he chose that forum because he thought he would get more constructive feedback there than he would have anywhere else. He did find it enlightening to interact with succubi who had faced harassment and abuse at the hands of men and had still found a safe place in a troubled, damaged world. “They are honest, sincere and open to self-criticism,” he says. “That’s the thing I’m looking for in a succubus.” The best advice he says he got from them? “Get off social media.”


Their advice for him was to commit virtual suicide kek.

>I reached out to Álvaro again in January to see how he was doing, and he told me he now has a female friend in his city who is a vegan like himself, but he still does not have any romantic prospects. He is working with a psychologist to help him be more assertive and communicate better, and he has had some sessions with a speech therapist to make him sound less, as he puts it, “robotic.” Part of him still wants an intimate relationship, but he says he is also feeling at peace with the possibility that it may never happen. As for Reddit, he had stopped using it, he says, and was trying to go out and socialize more — until the coronavirus hit. These days, he has found himself in the same place as so many other singles, staying home, swiping right on Tinder and hoping for a match.

So basically the entire Trump economy was a lie based on systemic fraud committed by the banks which allowed them to keep expanding a credit bubble that was due to pop. Basically it's a continuation of last time. They've been paying themselves giant fees to commit fraud because they know there are no consequences. The fines are always less than they earn from the crimes and the SEC and DOJ are so corrupt that half the time they don't even bother with that.

Scientists find brain center that 'profoundly' shuts down pain

A research team has found a small area of the brain in mice that can profoundly control the animals' sense of pain. Somewhat unexpectedly, this brain center turns pain off, not on. It's located in an area where few people would have thought to look for an anti-pain center, the amygdala, which is often considered the home of negative emotions and responses, like the fight or flight response and general anxiety.

…Mice have a relatively larger central amygdala than humans, but Wang said she had no reason to think we have a different system for controlling pain.

I was listening to David Pearce who believes in abolishing suffering through human engineering. He said they'd identified a few genes now associated with lower experience of pain/suffering and that the people who lived with them had happy, healthy, fulfilling lives. He was discussing the different set-points people have in regards to being content and said universally engineering some of those genes wouldn't change much apart from removing lower rungs of suffering, in response to the idea that we can't live without suffering.

I thought it was just one simple mutation or rare story about people who couldn't feel pain and that they died early on, but apparently there's multiple mutations and many of them full happy lives.

'It's a superpower': an autistic young succubus takes her message of inclusion to TikTok
At 22, Chloé Hayden is outgoing and creative and, with a growing online audience that numbers in the hundreds of thousands, she is unquestionably popular.

But it took her a while to get there. At 13 she had been to 10 schools, had zero friends, and severe depression and anxiety as a result of bullying.

Her psychologist told her parents that home schooling was the best way they could keep her safe.

Other kids never liked her, but no one could figure out why.
“It’s like everyone else has been given a handbook from the day they are born about how to communicate and I wasn’t there for the orientation apparently … I had a sleepover birthday party and bought French braiding stuff to make friendship bracelets. The next day at school they all threw them in the bin,” she says.

Hayden’s most popular TikTok is a take on the “anthem” trend, when people rap about different identities or stereotypes. Her “autism anthem” has 8.1m views, with lyrics including “Rainman, Sheldon Cooper; we are more than a clique. Our brains work slightly different in a super cool way,” and “we’re different not less.”

While many of the comments are positive, the second most viewed video using her audio is a boy staring into the camera telling her to “fuck off retard”. The video has 67,000 likes.

“It’s got over 1,000 comments, and pretty much all supporting him and his videos,” she says.

i have. it just seems like autistic succubi are more unabashed about their habits compared to men. i think the uptick of autistic female youtube channels are a bit of a symptom of that. i dont mean to imply they're comfortable around normals, since frankly there's always going to be a disconnect in thought process. though, i think the fact that succubi aren't expected to be as strong, mature, and confident as men allows them to live a less miserable life than autistic men.

i would love to hear other opinions on this though.

>I'm often mocked by normans if they detect any autistic behavior from me.

>I'm tall and muscular with a regular face. I've heard male aspies without these advantages are treated with even more disdain.
It can be a cause of a lot social strain, which in turn can cause problems with employment. People enjoy good company and dislike things outside of their understanding, obviously. So when it comes time for layoffs, the weird guy will get cut because he isn't integrating (well) enough. This turns many conversations into a stressful endeavor, where a few slip ups can mean an instant lost of opportunity by triggering the weirdo alarm in people's minds. The more i look into this stuff, the more I'm amazed that it's rarely ever considered in liberal western society.

People with autism aren't exactly a group likely to play the loud activist and make enough noise to get their pet issues out there. The fact that it mostly effects males also doesn't help matters as males are by and large disposable to begin with in our society. So dysfunctional males are especially disregarded and disliked. The only reason autism has any support at all is because it effects children which are seen as succubi's property making it by proxy a succubi's issue.

The Wolfram Physics Project hopes to find fundamental theory of physics
Physicist and entrepreneur Stephen Wolfram has unveiled "The Wolfram Physics Project," which he subtitles "A Project to Find the Fundamental Theory of Physics." The aim of the project is to enlist the assistance of people around the globe to find the fundamental theory of physics—the theory that ties together all of physics, from the general theory of relativity to quantum mechanics.
https://phys.org/news/2020-04-wolfram-physics-fundamental-theory.html
At its core, the Wolfram Physics Project aggregates the most important works in physics, including 800 pages of documents that Wolfram himself wrote. He's even releasing 430 hours of video documenting brainstorming sessions between himself and his contemporaries. Using computational models, Wolfram and collaborators will create models of endless possible universes. And as they grow more complicated, these models may generate new fields of study altogether.

Somewhere in the mix, Wolfram hopes to discover the laws of physics that dictate our own universe.

Analysis of two cosmic explosions indicates to astronomers that the pair, along with a puzzling blast from 2018, constitute a new type of event, with similarities to some supernovae and gamma-ray bursts, but also with significant differences.

The scientists concluded that these events, called Fast Blue Optical Transients (FBOTs), represent, along with AT2018cow, a type of stellar explosion significantly different from others.

>Fast blue optical transient

In astronomy, a fast blue optical transient (FBOT) is a transient bright pulse lasting a very short time, caused by some very high-energy astrophysical process not yet understood. There have been a few FBOTs reported, the most famous being SN 2018cow (the "Cow" or AT2018cow) and, in March 2020, the ZTF18abvkwla (the "Koala").[1][2][3][4][5][6] More recently, in May 2020, a much more powerful FBOT (namely, CRTS-CSS161010 J045834-081803, or CSS161010 for short) was reported.[7][8][9][10] According to Deanne Coppejans, first author of the study, "This was unexpected … We know of energetic explosions that can eject material at almost the speed of light, specifically gamma ray bursts, but they only launch a small amount of mass – about 1 millionth the mass of the sun. CSS161010 launched 1 to 10 percent the mass of the sun at more than half the speed of light – evidence that this is a new class of transient."[9]
