    In the test 15 years ago: ATi’s Radeon X1900 XTX was fast, hot and loud

    After Nvidia countered the Radeon X1800 XT with the GeForce 7800 GTX 512 immediately after its launch, ATi followed suit with the Radeon X1900 XT (X) (test) in January 2006. In the benchmarks, it went head-to-head with the GeForce.   More shader units The old R520 and the new R580 GPU apparently hardly differed: 90 nm manufacturing process, 16 pixel pipelines, 16 ROPs, 8 vertex pipelines and 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. Although the R580 worked at slightly higher clock rates, the significant difference was that ATi increased the number of shader units per pipeline from 1 to 3. The Radeon X1900 XT (X) thus had three times the shading performance per cycle than the…

    Left 4 Dead 2: Unindexed, Uncut DLC available

    Eleven years after its publication, the BPjM removes the co-op shooter Left 4 Dead 2 from the index. The heavily cut, German version becomes obsolete with the new release “from 18 years of age”. An uncut DLC that brings back the missing effects and animations is already officially available on Steam. The “Uncensored” content package is available to owners of the cut version free of charge and reinserts splatter effects, blood splatters and ragdoll effects. In addition, corpses of the undead remain on the ground again; In the cut version, they fell victim to the protection of minors and dissolved immediately – a common practice, especially at the beginning of the millennium, to satisfy the BPjM. A detailed list…

    Cookies Reciepe For Vegan Diet #1

    Cookies I f I were trapped on a desert island and could have only one kind of baked good with me, it would be cookies. Well, first I would lobby for a dessert island rather than a desert island, but if I couldn’t get that second s, I would be happy with the cookies.   From experienced pastry chefs to beginning bakers, everyone loves cookies. They are flexible (with add-ins such as nuts or chocolate chips), they are hand-held and they are a cinch to whip up.

    Like Twitter, Facebook would like to integrate newsletters into its social network

    Recently, Twitter acquired Revue, which specializes in newsletters. The microblogging platform plans to integrate this service into its app. And obviously, Facebook is also interested in newsletters. The number one social network would use this format to get closer to independent journalists.   Are newsletters going to become a new trend on the web? This week, Twitter announced the acquisition of Revue , a specialist company that allows authors to create newsletters and even earn money through paid access. If Twitter is buying this company, it is because it is now interested in long formats, and because it wants to give new tools to authors who communicate with their audiences on the microblogging platform. In addition, Twitter…

    “Aliens exist and we have proof of them,” says Harvard professor

    For Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard’s astronomy department, there is no longer any room for doubt. Aliens exist and we discovered them 3 years ago.   This announcement is far from trivial and could answer one of the questions that most concern the human species. Are we alone in the universe ? Is our presence on Earth the result of a cosmic miracle, where all the elements would have been perfectly aligned so that we could live on a planet covered with water, with an atmosphere and a magnetic field? Or, our existence is only a frightening banality in the middle of the billions of galaxies which swarm in the Universe and where the…

    Samsung should sell its flexible displays to other manufacturers

    Samsung Display could soon make the flexible panels of the brand’s folding smartphones available to other manufacturers.   If we omit Samsung, the folding smartphone market is still extremely small, despite a timid excursion by certain manufacturers in the sector, such as Huawei with its Mate XS or Motorola with its RAZR (2019) . Samsung’s devices have indeed a considerable lead, whether it is the Galaxy Z Flip or the latest Galaxy Z Fold 2 . Nevertheless, the use of the flexible screen could soon become more widely available among other manufacturers, thanks, once again, to Samsung.  According to Korean media ETNews , the screen division of the firm – Samsung Display – could soon sell flexible panels to other manufacturers. The screens…

    PROTEIN FROM PLANTS

      Nutrition researchers declared more than thirty years ago that plant foods can provide adequate protein.1 But “where do you get your protein?” is a question that most vegans have heard more times than they can count. Many of the questions about protein in plantbased diets stem from confusion over what it means for proteins to be “complete.” COMPLETE AND INCOMPLETE PROTEINS Proteins are made of chains of twenty different amino acids. Some amino acids can be made by the body (generally from other amino acids) and therefore we don’t need a dietary source of them. Others— the essential amino acids (EAAs)—must be supplied by the diet. Proteins in the…

    CALCIUM, VITAMIN D, AND BONE HEALTH CALCIUM

    For most of human history, people got their calcium from plants, primarily wild, leafy greens. Dairy foods didn’t become part of the human diet until around 10,000 years ago and even then they were consumed only in some parts of the world. Calcium-rich greens were so abundant in early diets that some nutritional anthropologists speculate that people consumed as much as 3,000 milligrams per day of calcium from these foods, or about three times our current recommended intakes. 1 The cultivated greens that are available to vegans today are lower in calcium than the wild vegetables available to our ancestors, but they can still make a significant contribution to calcium…

    IS A VEGAN DIET NATURAL?

    It wouldn’t be right to ignore the four-hundred-pound gorilla in the room, so let’s ask the obvious question: Since vitamin B12 is not found in plant foods and vegans must take supplements, doesn’t that make a vegan diet unnatural? Many vegans have bent over backwards to convince themselves and others that humans evolved as vegans and that supplemental vitamin B 12 is only needed because we have moved so far away from our natural environment. But there is a tremendous amount of evidence that humans evolved eating some animal products. While B12 is not needed in large amounts, it may take more than can be picked up from unwashed produce…

    GETTING B12 FROM FORTIFIED FOODS

    Plant foods are reliable sources of active vitamin B 12 only if they are fortified with the vitamin. On food labels, the Daily Value for vitamin B12 is 6 micrograms. So if a food provides 25 percent of the Daily Value, it contains 1.5 micrograms. Nutritional yeast is a popular choice with many vegans. Its cheesyyeasty flavor is great mixed into bean and grain dishes or sprinkled over popcorn. Nutritional yeast is grown on a nutrient-rich culture and contains only the nutrients that are in that culture. So don’t assume that every type of nutritional yeast is a good source of vitamin B12. Red Star brand Vegetarian Support Formula is…

    MEETING VITAMIN B12 NEEDS

    There are a couple of important things to keep in mind about supplementing with B12. First, B12 supplements should be either chewable or sublingual (dissolving under the tongue) since research shows that, in some people, B12 isn’t well absorbed from pills that are swallowed whole. Also, the body is used to getting little bits of vitamin B12 here and there throughout the day. When confronted with a big dose of B12, it absorbs just a tiny fraction of the whole amount. So when you take vitamin B 12 infrequently, you need rather large amounts in order to get enough. The RDA for vitamin B12 is just 2.4 micrograms for adults.…

    Nokia in the next James Bond: product placement to the test of Covid-19

    Could we let James Bond use a dated smartphone? Obviously not, Nokia having paid dearly to see its terminals appear in the next film featuring Agent 007. So we bring out the cameras. Product placements are legion in movies and TV shows. For studios, they make it possible to amortize certain costs inherent in filming. The brands themselves gain generally very positive visibility for their products. Finland’s Nokia is used to this kind of contract. We all remember wanting the same sliding clamshell cell phone as Matrix hero Neo (yes, remember, the Nokia 8110 nicknamed “the banana”). A similar deal has been made by HMD Global, the current Nokia brand operator in the smartphone market,…

    Whatsapp now requires biometric authentication on PC

    Until now, to link your Whatsapp account to your PC – from the desktop application or the web, it was enough to scan a QR code on your smartphone . The operation was simple, but probably too insecure for the taste of the company, which will now add a new layer of security to the process. As part of a redesign of its web version, Whatsapp explains that if someone manages to access your phone, they will no longer be able to link it to their PC, in order to be able to usurp your identity or search in your conversations later for example. An additional measure, undoubtedly intended to pass the pill after the…

    Twitch bans streamers who signed up before they were 13

    Twitch Since Twitch began banning streamers who created their channels before the legal age, the streaming platform has faced a wave of revolt and is accused of hypocrisy. appears to be hunting down streamers who created their accounts before the age of 13. One of the rules of the platform states that you must be 13 years or older to create an account and stream your games. While some people have respected this rule, this is obviously not the case for everyone, since more and more streamers are seeing their accounts being banned by Twitch for not respecting this rule. This is the case of AverageHarry, a 15-year-old British streamer whose ban…

    Microdroid: what is this new ultra-light OS from Google?

    As part of its AOSP (Android Open Source Project), Google unveils Microdroid, the ultra-light little brother of Android. This should facilitate the work of application developers and Google, and is primarily intended for use on virtual machines.  You knew Android, but you will now have to rely on its little brother, Microdroid . Developed by Google , this new OS is very similar to Android, except that it is significantly lighter, but also that it is not really intended to be found as is on a smartphone, but rather on virtualization machines on Linux. Before specifying the contours of Microdroid, a parenthesis is necessary concerning these famous “virtual machines” . In computing, virtualization is similar to emulation, that is,…

    VITAMIN B12 DEFICIENCY

    Overt deficiency occurs when vitamin B12 stores drop to near zero. The megaloblastic anemia that occurs with B12 deficiency is reversible with vitamin B 12 therapy. Sometimes B12 deficiency anemia is “masked” by the vitamin folic acid (also called folate), which can step in and do vitamin B 12’s job. So you can be deficient in vitamin B12 but not have anemia if your diet is high in folate. This may sound like a good thing, but it’s not since folic acid won’t prevent the nerve damage that can occur with B12 deficiency. If B12 intake is low and folate intake is high, B12 deficiency can go unnoticed until it…

    VITAMIN B12

    The Gorilla in the Room You may have heard that vitamin B vegans. But among nutrition professionals (including those of us 12 is a controversial topic among who specialize in vegan diets), there is no controversy at all: All vegans need to take a vitamin B 12 supplement or consume foods that are fortified with this nutrient. Vitamin B 12 is needed for cell division and formation of healthy red blood cells. It’s also needed to produce myelin, the protective sheath around nerve fibers. Overt B 12 deficiency can produce a condition called macrocytic or megaloblastic anemia, in which blood cells don’t divide and reproduce normally. Deficiency can also result…

    VEGAN SOURCES OF VITAMIN B12

    All of the vitamin B 12 in the world is made by bacteria, and that includes bacteria living in the digestive tracts of animals and humans. It seems like we could just use what these bacteria produce, but they are too far down in the intestines to be of any use to us. We absorb vitamin B12 in our small intestine; the bacteria producing it live in our large intestine. There are also molecules that are very similar to vitamin B12 but that have no true vitamin activity for humans. These are inactive B12 analogues. Most methods for measuring vitamin B12 in foods don’t differentiate between true vitamin B 12…
