  1. The brain has it's limitations just like everything else. But there impressive nonetheless. https://www.livescience.com/53751-brain-could-store-internet.html
  2. Not sure if this will help you or not. Some of these are online and some are international, and they're expensive too. https://www.switchup.org/rankings/best-coding-bootcamp https://www.cio.com/article/3222718/the-10-best-coding-bootcamps.htm https://www.thebalancecareers.com/coding-bootcamps-in-nyc-2071394 Edit- just read your OP title, 1-2 weeks. These will be useless then. Sorry.
  3. A - Yes, it's called 'thinning', but it's controversial. Quick search found this from 2009. Quote- "Fire-science experts say that overgrown forests must be thinned. Environmentalists say that thinning is really an excuse to engage in destructive logging. And then everybody heads to court". https://www.csmonitor.com/Environment/Bright-Green/2009/0902/wildfires-the-causes-and-solutions B- I imagine this would require so much removal of forest when added up you'd run into the same problems as A.
  4. Sky news- Is the US attack a 'wag the dog scenario? Trump saying Obama will start a war with Iran at 1:25.
  5. Not likely soon, but... New research has put forward another idea for what such a radical stellar engine might look like. Via this beautiful video via Kurgesagt you can learn all about the so-called Caplan Thruster, which would use the Sun's own energy to propel it across the galaxy and beyond. It's named after the scientist who came up with the design, astrophysicist Matthew Caplan from Illinois State University. ....The Caplan Thruster would sit close to the Sun, using electromagnetic fields to gather hydrogen and helium from the solar wind to use as fuel. That would power two jets of energy – one using helium, pushed through a fusion reactor to create a jet of radioactive oxygen that would move the Caplan Thruster forward, and one using hydrogen, to maintain distance from the Sun and to push it forward. The Caplan Thruster would essentially act as a kind of tugboat. https://www.sciencealert.com/what-is-a-stellar-engine-and-could-it-help-us-escape-a-supernova/amp?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0094576519312457
  6. The XENON1T detector has allowed scientists to observe an ultra-rare event: the radioactive decay of xenon-124. https://www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/dark-matter-scientists-observe-the-rarest-event-ever-recorded/?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral
  7. Happy Christmas everyone 🎅🏻
  8. Charles Darwin's work was based on observation and research over many years.
  9. Brilliant. Especially love the serpent, never heard of this before now. 👍🏻
  10. Let me get this right, You think nuclear and alien technology couldn't destroy a Pyramid? Why would aliens travel all this way and only bring one bomb And the reason people put themselves so deep into the soil is usually because they've died. So no need to worry about aliens or a nuclear attack.

  12. U.K. police officers aren't above the law. Can't find a recent survey, I think they do them every five years. From 2015:- Officers convicted of offences PC Keith Wallis was jailed for 12 months for lying about witnessing an altercation in Downing Street involving the former Tory chief whip, Andrew Mitchell. Osman Iqbal was given 7 years of jail time for prostitution, supplying a class-A drug, and money laundering in 2014. Chris Higgs admitted to 16 crimes, including blackmail, fraud, perverting the court of justice, and witness interference, in March 2015. Constable Trevor Jones jailed for 14 months after bombarding vulnerable women with sleazy text and voice messages in June 2015.

  13. Not a TV series (25 years old) but still very, very good. The Day After, on YouTube.

  15. Two heads better than one? They probably complimented each other, if it was engineering or something similar, then I can see why being around biology experts would give you an advantage over another lab which didn't. Edit- Misread the question, thought they were asking why? Oops. Edit 2- Have looked all over the internet (bing), can't find nothing.
  16. Top dark matter candidate loses ground to tiniest competitor. The ADMX experiment at the University of Washington uses a strong magnetic field to search for hypothetical dark matter particles called axions. https://www.quantamagazine.org/why-dark-matter-might-be-axions-20191127/?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral ADMX’s main magnet produces a field that’s about 150,000 times stronger than Earth’s.
  17. From wiki :- Tesla Cybertruck model specifications[9] Model Range (EPA est.) 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) Top Speed Payload Towing capacity Price (USD) Single Motor RWD ≥ 250 miles (400 km) < 6.5 seconds 110 mph (175 km/h) 3,500 lb (1,600 kg) ≥ 7,500 lb (3,400 kg) $39,900 Dual Motor AWD ≥ 300 miles (480 km) < 4.5 seconds 120 mph (195 km/h) 3,500 lb (1,600 kg) ≥ 10,000 lb (4,550 kg) $49,900 Tri Motor AWD ≥ 500 miles (800 km) < 2.9 seconds 130 mph (210 km/h)
  18. What do you think. Anybody thinking of buying one? (From wiki) Tesla Cybertruck is an all-electric battery-powered light commercial vehicle in development by Tesla, Inc. Three models have been announced, with range estimates of 250–500 miles (400–800 km) and an estimated 0–60 mph time of 6.5–2.9 seconds, depending on the model.[9] I really like it, it's different. I love trucks, especially the Hilux, but I've got to say, if I had the money to buy one of them I'd definitely pick the Tesla. There's something about this that makes me want one. At least it's different. I'm not sure if it's futuristic or retro though, a bit of both really I think. Having said that, given a choice between the Cybertruck and this (below), I think I'd probably buy this. Ain't she a looker...
  19. Sorry for going off topic, but I'm confused, what type of spam is this? what's the purpose?. This is very high brow spam, I normally get sent click bait and funeral plans, crap like that.
  20. Maybe I've misunderstood you, but are you suggesting God is responsible for these mysteries?
  21. What makes you think they were knife marks? Were you bleeding? I've woken with red lines on me before, usually my face, I've always thought it was just the way I slept. Unless it was Freddie Kruger...
  22. For me, it would be what happened before the 'big bang'. I can day dream all day thinking about this. Black holes or fuzz balls are another favourite of mine. UFO's are fascinating as well. Not to mention the big one... "are we alone?"
  23. "On Wednesday cameras go live with the Trump impeachment hearings" Could be on repeat. I tuned in to the impeachment hearings last night on BBC, they were 'live' apparently. Took a while to realise they weren't.
