Would it be moral to select embryos for IVF that have lower polygenic risk scores for diseases like diabetes, hypertension, etc.? What if those diseases had epidemiological and perhaps genetic correlations with traits that we are less comfortable with people selecting for? When does therapeutic use become enhancement? For instance, lower cognitive ability in early life is associated with increased risk of late life dementia, as well as increased risk of schizophrenia. Should people be allowed to select on the basis of such criteria?

That's true.
It doesn't really harm the embryo to get a probe into mommy and collect some skin cells. But it could be problematic that a probe is put into mommy.

So people do pre natal diagnoses which is okay in my book, especially when you are 40 years old and considering the fact that a full gene sequencing is somewhere below 600€ today. It's not even an elite-thingy.
Also I like the thought that you can dodge abortion that way for the case that a seriousness health problem you couldn't handle would be detected. I think it's good to make 100% sure that this little thing will not suffer and is not concious when it goes into the bin (it's below <18 cells AFAIK).

t. Not an expert working in a very remotely related field knowing people doing such diagnostics

Just to clarify, I think you are conflating in vivo and in vitro. With IVF there is no "probe into mommy", the embryos are conceived and raised in laboratory dishes for several days, and only after that transferred into an actual womb. Also at this point there are no "skin cells" to speak of, cells aren't that specialized at this point of development AFAIK.

Does Ernst follow any professionally played videogames? To what extend?
From time to time i like watching Quake Live and CS:GO but i don't think i'm interested enough to actually visit any events like many other people do.

Some news:
McDonalds ended it's sponsorship with the German Football Association and instead focuses on eSport now.

Let's give this thread another try:

The CSGO major in Poland, IEM Katowice 2019, is going on right now and we already had a few nice games.
A new one is about to start so for everyone interested:

It isn't boring if you know what is going on or have EC tier borderline autistic tendencies. I've noted before murican football is the stupidest fucking thing ever and painfully boring even if you do know the rules.

>>13308
Well, one can argue. You remember Cold War? It could easily be argued what stupidity and toxicity was surrounding chess at the time because of it.

>>13309
The number of possible moves in chess are fixed. It's a tighter game in general, although I can see how the combination of timing and map like dedust makes it so you pretty much know what to expect professionally like sniper here, dude with pistol and noif hiding here etc. But still, CS is not even remotely like chess.

What does remind me more of chess is XCOM. I'd be interested to see the game played professionally and shared by kings and diplomats if it were one of the only games, which is primary reason why everything from Starcraft to CS to chess got popular. Issue with modern gaming is there's just too many to choose from and ironically kills off many communities because instead of 100k ppl playing one of a handful of games you have 100million playing many thousands of games so the player pool becomes smaller.

AFAIK not directly but you can probably apply some sort of Youtube SEO techniques to make your videos more appealing to the suggestion algorithm

BTW personally I started using a Chrome extension called DFTube* recently to block the recommended videos column and other unnecessary stuff so I don't waste as much time on YouTube. Very happy with it so far.

I'm afraid of trying anything since childhood because I'm constantly reminiscing too much about what other people would and had felt as consequence of my actions.
I'm a piece of shit. Years ago whilst being timid about myself and such I could have done something with my free time and youthfulness; energy.
Everyday before going to bed I wish silently that I could go back through time and just put one thing in my young mind: no one cares about you, you don't need to be protective.

Instead, I'm here --- wasted!

Except there is no ethnic genocide here. Like, at all. You're just broadly trying to stretch the argument to absurd generalities of complete isolationism versus intervention, as if actual legitimate US (or anyone's for that matter including Russian) imperialism and typical bullshit military adventures and CIA antics are somehow the same thing as the international community failing to prevent a genocide. Like I said, it is usually the US behind those sorts of things anyway in SA
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Mozote_massacre
I should also point out that the "School of the Americas" is one of if not the most notorious institutes in the US and is literally a school for training terrorists and death squads. Among the many other notable graduates of that program are Los Zetas (who, the story goes, went rogue, though one wonders if they still have US intelligence contacts).

The reason why Abrams is under scrutiny is because of his involvement in that particular massacre, as well as numerous other human rights abuses throughout south America, as well as being one of the architects for the Iraq war, which ad you might recall resulted in civil war, genocide, continued instability throughout the region, and eventually ISIS.

If this was a genuine humanitarian operation of course we would be for it but I don't know why you expect me to believe you it's raining when my leg is being pissed on any more than all of us knew the Russians were lying through their teeth about Ukraine.

>Yes, I think it is given that at some point the international community has a responsibility to step-in or if not that sovereignty is effectively lost beyond a point.
Any "right-to-intervene" is just a shallow excuse to invade for purely selfish purposes. It's a way to justify imperialist adventures in an age where everyone outwardly agrees that imperialism is bad.

Assad is a better choice than the jihadis he fights against, and he's an order of magnitude less evil than our good friends and allies in Saudi Arabia, who are consciously inflicting starvation and cholera on half of a nation of 28 million. Any moral claims from a government which supports the Saudis and goes on a warpath against Iran or Maduro can be dismissed out of hand.

>Well, yes. Acting in complete disregard for international law is more serious offence than exploiting a lacuna.

thank you. i can't remember the name, but that first study must be the one, although it is actually from ireland, not from scotland.
the findings from the 2nd study are quite interesting, they assessed a fairly large number of samples, yielding an overview of genetic variety in that region and they also found that the last auerochs who died in poland was basically a mutt of auerochs and regular cattle.
anyway, there's still a loooong way to go, a full auerochs chromosome set is required for cloning, which does not exist, unfortunately. so breeders still must resort to slowly modify the genome of regular cattle.

>revealed a relationship between the European Bison and the Aurochs
afaik the wisent is supposed to be the result of interbreeding between auerochs and (now extinct) european steppe bison.

Very good infographic about Russian brain drain. Brain drain is bad for any country, but in general immigration is good for the world, because people tend to migrate/work in places where their skills are more needed and will be used with greater efficiency. But while immigration doesn't harm the well-being of people in general, there are things that consume resources, don't increase the productivity of people and don't lead to a more successful economy for Russia or the world as a whole, such as military. Every penny spent on army is a wasted penny. Of course defence spending reduces unemployment and funds research of certain technologies, but if people would spend the same resources on education, healtchare, infrastructure or technology grants they would receive greater benefits for the same price.

You know it from the Sopranos. They play the Chosen Mix in the intro. The original has a nice spoken word intro. There are some very weird (I wouldn't say good) techno mixes on Exhiole from Cold Harbour Lane.

The acoustic version is the best.

>ESPECIALLY the part about fucking magnets.

I decided to look this up on Reddit briefly and picked the imo best answer.

"Physics cannot answer "why" questions on a fundamental level. We live in a universe that works according to some (not necessarily known) laws of physics. We could also live in a universe where the laws of physics are different.

Magnetism can be tracked down to quantum electrodynamics (QED), the most fundamental description of electromagnetism we have. On that level, it is well understood - the calculations based on QED are in incredibly precise agreement with all measurements done so far, with a precision of up to 13 decimal digits."

The first part is standard (maybe little bit pretentious) wisdom. I don't believe the author has a PhD or is close to it, but the whole answer is rather decent.
