Irish PM condemns 'reprehensible' Dublin violence
  • They were arrested for a violent protest that resulted in setting fire to a construction site which was building temporary housing for asylum seekers. Seems pretty straight forward they were protesting the state helping those seeking asylum, no?

  • Easiest used electric car to repair/diy?
  • Why would you say that a few years ago? It was only a handful of months back they had the massive machine which will produce the body of the cars functional. I've been on the wait list since 2022 and they only had just started testing the suspension design back then. Seems odd, but maybe I was late to the game.

  • Easiest used electric car to repair/diy?
  • It's the most aerodynamic vehicle ever made for mainstream production, so that's why it looks a bit odd. But it's amazing they'll send you the 3D printing data so you can print replacement parts!

  • The Sahel Stands Up and the World Must Pay Attention

  • Aptera is fully right to repair, so I'd say them even though their car won't be available for a few more months.

  • U of T researchers develop RNA-targeting technology for precisely manipulating parts of human genes
  • Well, only very specific viruses entry the nucleus, most often due to not bringing along enzymes needed for replication. Then, there's transducing viruses and non-transducing viruses, of which only one will retain it's genome in the host genome. Both occur near oncogenic gene locations too, which is why viral infections can lead to cancer, but this isn't very common at all. IDK, guess I've always felt bacteria are way more complex and that it makes sense CRISPR comes from them. Bacterial viruses, aka bacteria phages, were the evolutionary pressure which lead to CRISPR's development. But I'm a nerd and stay up to date with it all, so maybe that shifted my outlook.

  • Sorry for the delayed reply, but I studied in this field as welll, so curious why you thought CRISPR would be associated with viruses over bacteria or even mold/yeast?

  • Every time i try and update or install a flatpak with discover i get this error.
  • In Fedora, I ran into the same issue, but I fixed it by running flatpak update -y in terminal. Hopefully that works on your end as well.

  • Questions about installing linux on dual boot on a single drive ?
  • Just out of curiosity, why not just go full Linux and use a Windows VM? Using a debloater (this is my favorite: https://github.com/Raphire/Win11Debloat) makes the windows VM run very well. Plus you limit the extent Microsoft is able analyze and track you. Additionally, this also works around the VPN connection issue currently on going with Windows.

  • Privacy@Lemmy.world: Why use catch-all email domains over email aliases?
  • It's great for emails on account's where they know you, like banks and doctors offices. It also lets you make em up on the fly instead of using the site or app. I've never had spam issues, but it does make the email less anonymous. So it's a situational thing, but nice to just use DDS@xyz.abc when at the dentist or whatever.

    Atlanta’s Democratic leadership is trying to build a massive police urban-warfare training facility before the public can stop it. The outcome will set a precedent for the political future, with implications well beyond the city itself.

    Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman
  • Ok, interesting, thanks for the correction. Do you think rephrasing my statement and stating Linus's kernel is more adaptive would be more accurate?

  • U of T researchers develop RNA-targeting technology for precisely manipulating parts of human genes
  • It was revolutionary when it was first isolated from bacteria. Always fascinating to me that it's pretty much the bacterial adaptive immune system. Now it's awesome seeing other scientists dial in the precision of an already game changing advancement.

    The Coming Great Conflict; an essay explores if the US is nearing a civil war.
  • Trump getting a second term seems to drastically increase the likelihood of a civil war, whereas Biden remaining in office drastically favors WWIII. Screwed either way, and I'm not sure which one is the lesser evil...

  • Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman
  • Stallman's attempt to rename Linux to incorporate the GNU name not happening was frustrating on his end it seems. Everytime someone calls their system a Linux based OS and not GNU/Linux based OS downplays the work he put in. However, Linus's kernel was more elaborate than GNU Hurd, so it was incorporated. It's said Stallman is a visionary, while Linus is a programist. While there's never been any display of tension in a back and forth between them online, it's always seemed to me they appreciate and also despise various aspects of each another.

  • As I recently learned from Mental Outlaw, https://github.com/raphire/win11debloat is a life saver. Not only can it disble all the telemetry, ad's, and bloat found in Windows 11, it also made my device run WAY faster. You can pick and choose what to keep and what to delete and it works for both Windows 10 & 11, I highly recommend it! Seeing the OneDrive update made me twitch, so I felt I had to reference this tool in this thread.

    Here is Mental Outlaw's walk through downloading and running the program in Windows 11: https://invidious.drgns.space/watch?v=mwUBeqHqSas
