2020.09.27 07:37 Sunapr1 Misconceptions about an Mtech Degree

PS This post is Specifically related to CS Branch
There are Several Misconceptions about an Mtech degree and while I agree the quality of education is bad compared to the US Colleges, it dosent specially mean its a second class/third class Degree. So debunking common misconceptions
Bio : I was i n tier 2 private college and had the opportunity to go to abroad . After carefull analyis I specifically decided to remain in India after giving gate .. Although end result was not what I was hoping , but in the end I was fairly in the position that I m happy with
  1. IISC? What's thatThat is one of the things people dosent know and it infuriates me a lot . IISC is specifically a great institute (probably at top) for Computer Science Automation and Data Science. Almost everyone graduated from there are at top positions are settled in abroad or the technical lead or CTO at various startup top companies , not specifically in India but in world as well. You would be hard pressed to find any person who is not doing good in TECHNICAL FIELD after graduating from there. Further you do not need absolute top ranks for that , they have Mtech Research where the gate score required is lenient and is on basis of Interview only
  2. Opportunites after MtechAfter Mtech Your Career opportunities are immense . You can go into mostly into any R & D organisation , teaching jobs, government jobs, usually many of the opportunites open for students who want to be in a Technical Field
  3. Placement Low Everywhere?? (Not True)Just A couple of notes onto that one .. If you go to placement statistics for any tier 1 college their mtech placement (Cs component) is more or less equal in Btech . Infact for iiitb iiith iiitd I specifically saw their mtech placement component is higher than the btech guys .. Getting any of these top institutions seems like a perfect option than going into MS , if you wish to remain back in India
I know things seems confusion so i wanted to List down two videos between MS And Mtech which should be your most ideal pick, these videos are by srikant Sir (IISC graduate)
  1. MTech CS in IIT's/Premiere Universities in India vs MS in US/abroad: placements, feeshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk4Anw1g2wY
  2. Careers after GATE with MTech CS from IISc/IIT'shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zln31JMVuHk
EDIT No way Advocating MS Over Mtech .. Both have their pros and cons. The post is to debunk misconceptions about an mtech degree

2020.09.26 23:12 MinecraftMagiMan Final Fantasy VII no longer working

This is my first pie I've set up, so sorry if it's an easy fix.
Anyways, the other day I decided to see how well my pie could run PS1 games (it's a Raspberry Pie 4) through Retropie. I downloaded the BIOS and 2 games: Final Fantasy VII (all 3 discs) and Tony Hawk Pro Skater (for a sibling to try out). I made a "playlist" for the Final Fantasy so I don't have 3 instances of it on the game select screen, And when trying it out it seemed to work fine. Even played a little, though wasn't able to use the analog stick on my controller for the controls.
After I made sure it worked, I let my younger sibling play the Tony Hawk game and it ran really well! A few hours later though, when he was done, I figured I'd try to play Final Fantasy, but it would freeze on loading. I reset the pie and tried Tony Hawk and it said no BIOS could he found, so I updated a few things on the pie and retried. Now Tony Hawk works fine even though it says it can't detect a GOOD, but Final Fantasy still freezes the pie before the game even opens.
Anybody have any idea what's going on? The BIOS is still in the folder, and I can't find anyone else with the same problem.
Also, while typing this up, I noticed all my save data from the other games I put into it aren't loading, possibly deleted. First noticed when Loading Pokemon Crystal and it only showed "New Game." Maybe they're connected?

2020.09.26 21:46 kiwispacemarine A Course of Action Part 30 - Superweapons for Everyone!

First Previous Next
Major Black strode through the corridors of Moonbase Alpha, eventually arriving at the interrogation room. A soldier ushered him into an observation gallery, where he could look into the cell from behind a one-way window.
Colonel Straker was there already, as well as several other officers.
“Ah, Major,” Straker greeted him, “Glad you could make it.”
Black merely nodded.
“What’s going on, sir?” he asked.
“General Henderson is asking the officers some questions,” Straker inclined his head at the window, “So far they seem reluctant to answer. He’s also offered them the chance to form an alliance between us and them, but they aren’t buying it.”
“Hmm,” Black grunted, looking through the window.
“Colonel,” Henderson was asking the higher-ranked officer, “Surely you realise that there’s no point in us fighting? If we don’t get you, the Consortium will!”
“Aren’t you part of the Consortium?” the officer sneered.
“No, we are not,” Henderson declared emphatically, “We never were, and probably never will be. They’ve betrayed us!”
“Now you know what it feels like,” the officer replied.
Henderson sighed.
“Listen, we don’t want to fight you!” he said, “The Consortium has manipulated, lied to and betrayed us. They did the same thing to you!” the General continued, “There is no point in us being enemies!”
“You killed my men!” the other officer shouted out suddenly, “Why should we join you?”
Henderson started back.
“So, you want to go there?” he asked in a low voice, “Need I remind you that your forces killed hundreds of our own? As well as several billion innocent Consortium civilians?” he demanded.
The alien officer laughed. It was a short, guttural, ugly squawk that came from somewhere in his abdomen.
“None are innocent in the Consortium!” the alien said, “All are guilty!”
“The Consortium’s population didn’t even know what the higher-ups did to you!” Henderson thundered, enjoying the way the smug look was wiped off the prisoner’s face, “It was declared a ‘virus outbreak’! They had no idea!”
Seeing that the alien officer was suitably sullen, the General continued, “You cannot just hold the entirety of a population responsible for the action of a few. Actions that were taken long before any of them were even born, for that matter.”
“Now,” Henderson said after a few moments of silence, “Do you wish to join us or not?”
The officers didn’t have a chance to reply, as Henderson received a phone call.
“Sir,” the voice of Colonel Straker emitted itself from the earpiece, “S.E.T.I. has just picked up a signal coming from Consortium space, directed at Earth. Sir, it seems to be some kind of propaganda speech.”
**********************************************************************************
Office of the Executive-Director of the Consortium of Interstellar Allied Species, Grand Assembly Hall, Interstellar Government World Capital. First Age of Revenge.
Executive-Director Rytech sat at his desk, facing the holo-camera that was placed before him. The Tark assumed an expression of sadness and regret, his compound eyes and wedge-shaped head angled to give the best effect.
“Fellow sentients,” he began, “It is with great sadness that I announce to you that the humans, and their United Nations, are traitors to the Consortium!”
He paused to let that sink into the minds of the masses that watched his speech, agog with shock.
“They, in their infinite treachery, have allied with the Infinite Scourge!” he declared with righteous anger, “The butchers who, need I remind you, started this war with their unprovoked attack on us! The murderers who destroyed the helpless remnants of the Golic Hegemony before setting their sights on us!”
That part was a fabrication and Rytech knew it. He, as well as several over Consortium officials, knew exactly who the Scourge were. But the public didn’t need to know that.
“The primitive barbarians who call themselves ‘civilised would rather cosy up to these creatures and watch the remains of Galactic Civilisation burn than stop this tide of destruction!” the Director declared passionately, “Well, they shall see what happens to those who cross us!” he shouted into the camera, playing up the emotional angle for all it was worth.
His anger subsided slightly.
“We have a new weapon,” he said, in a voice tinged with regret and sorrow, “One which we had hoped would never be used. But the humans have driven us to it! Fear not, citizens of the Consortium!” he implored the masses, “Do not let this sit on your conscience! For it was the humans, and the humans alone who drove us to this decision! Humans, if you can hear us!” he spoke with an almost fanatical zeal in his eyes, “Let this be a warning to those who would make an enemy of the Consortium: If you think of harming our wives and children, do not be surprised if the consequences are more than you can bear!”
With that ominous note, he signalled for the camera to be switched off.
“Did the humans get the signal?” he asked. A military officer consulted a computer terminal.
“Yes sir,” he said after a moment, “It was relayed to one of their Space Telescopes.”
“Good,” Rytech smiled, “Prepare to send the follow-up message. Is Admiral Zartan in position?”
“Yes sir.”
“Then tell him to stand by for firing on my signal.”
**********************************************************************************
“I don’t like it, gentlemen,” Secretary-General Kain declared, looking round at the U.N. Security Council, “I don’t like it one bit.”
The council were sitting in their chamber, puzzling over the signal they had received from the Consortium. They were joined by the Top Brass of the U.N. Space Command, namely General Roberts, Colonel Whitley, General Dickerson and Colonel-General Golovko.
“They spoke of a weapon,” President Robinson said, “And I imagine it’s not a new type of hand grenade.”
“No,” agreed General Roberts, “I’d say it’s a Weapon of Mass Destruction, possibly a bio-weapon of some kind.”
“Whatever it is,” Colonel-General Golovko said, “The only way it could be deployed to Earth is by a starship or other delivery system. That means it could be intercepted.”
“Which means we need to invest more into the Orbital Defence Grid,” Kain finished for him. Golovko nodded in agreement.
“Well,” Prime-Minister Cameron spoke up, “From what I hear, Project… I say, am I allowed to…?”
Kain, after quick consultation with General Roberts, nodded.
“Well,” the Prime Minister continued, “Project: Undying is in full-swing, and should be completed soon.”
“Yes,” Vladimir Putin said, “But will it be completed in time?”
“Sir!” someone rushed into the room, “Sir! We’re getting another signal from the Consortium! This time, it’s addressed directly to you, sir!”
“Put it through,” Kain ordered quickly.
Everyone looked to the giant monitor at the front of the room. Kain turned his chair so he was facing the screen directly. Someone sealed the doors and dimmed the lights, adding to the feeling of tension and dread that was creeping into everyone.
“Put it through,” Kain ordered. The aide nodded and spoke to someone on his cell phone.
The screen flickered on, before resolving into an image of Executive-Director Rytech.
“Hello, Kain,” the alien sneered, drawing out the sound of the Secretary-General’s name.
“Director Rytech,” Kain nodded politely, “What can we do for you?”
“Nothing,” replied Rytech, “But sit and watch in fear…”
Before Kain or anyone else could comment further, the screen changed to an image that everyone in the room recognised: a satellite image of Planet Cur’Cle, taken from a camera on what seemed to be a Consortium warship.
“Kain,” the voice of Director Rytech filtered through the speakers, “What you are seeing is Planet Cur’Cle from orbit. There are no Consortium troops on the planet, the only life-forms left are the native foliage and the Scourge, or should I say, Hegemony forces.”
There was a gasp that rippled through the room.
‘That lying…’ Kain thought. He waved General Roberts to him.
“Are Straker and Henderson getting this?” he whispered in the General’s ear.
“Yes sir,” Roberts replied, “They got the last message as well.”
**********************************************************************************
General Henderson watched the two aliens’ reaction to the message. It had been fed to the monitor inside the interrogation room as a way to maybe change their minds regarding co-operation with Earth.
The picture changed again. Now, the image of Cur'Cle only took up half the screen. The other half looked like some kind of false-colour image, with most of the planet coloured green, while the rest was highlighted in red.
“The scanner data on the right of the screen shows the life signs on Cur’Cle, which, as I said, is made up of Hegemony soldiers and native plants,” Rytech’s smug voice echoed from the speakers.
“What’s the point of all this?” the voice of Kain played through the speaker as he replied.
“Watch. Admiral,” he spoke to someone else, “Begin your attack.”
“Yes sir,” General Roberts recognised the voice of Admiral Zartan as the alien replied.
Everyone watching the video noticed another warship come into view. The warship then fired several salvoes of missiles at different points of the planet’s surface. The scanner data on the right of the screen showed the missiles enter the atmosphere and impact the surface. Then, to the horror of everyone watching, from each impact point, a small circle of red began appearing. The circles grew larger, and larger, until whole swathes of the planet’s surface were enveloped in red, devoid of life.
The image taken from orbit was no different. The areas that had previously held dense-green forests and jungles began slowly turning a sickly yellow, then brown.
“As you can see, Kain,” the smug, arrogant voice of Director Rytech boomed out from the speakers, “the planet is now almost completely devoid of life. One single missile can devastate an entire eco-system! I would advise that you break off whatever alliance you have with the Hegemony, lest you suffer the same fate.”
And with that, the message cut off.
**********************************************************************************
Kain was shocked beyond words.
“He doesn’t beat around the bush, does he sir?” Jerry commented. General Roberts suddenly picked up his mobile phone and answered it.
“No, he doesn’t,” the Secretary-General agreed, “I suggest we…”
“Sir!” General Roberts suddenly cried out, “Vandenberg has detected a large object entering orbit. It’s a Consortium warship sir.”
Everyone in the room went pale.
“Contact Moonbase!” Kain ordered, “Scramble intercept fighters. Send a boarding party! Get the Orbital Defence Grid online!”
Everyone scrambled to obey his frantic commands. Someone at Space Command had put a tactical display up on the screen, showing the enemy warship and its proximity to Earth.
“May God help us all,” Kain muttered.
**********************************************************************************
Moonbase Alpha Interrogation Room.
Colonel Straker turned to Major Black.
“Get to your unit, Major,” he ordered. Black saluted and ran out of the room. As he left, the Colonel picked up an intercom.
“All Moonbase Alpha personnel: This is Colonel Straker,” he spoke into the device, “I am calling Battle Stations! All combat personnel are to go to defensive positions immediately. This is not a drill!”
Black ran down the corridor to his barracks, sidestepping soldiers and civilians alike.
More calls chimed out from the P.A. as alarms echoed throughout the base.
“Astronauts report to flight stations immediately!” Straker ordered, “Orbital Defence Systems to be brought to Maximum Readiness!”
**********************************************************************************
North American Air Defence Command Headquarters, Mount Cheyenne Facility.
“Bogey is now entering weapons range!” an officer reported, “Satellites are locked on and ready to fire!”
“Stand by,” cautioned their superior, “They haven’t fired yet. We don’t know what they’re playing at. It could be a trick.”
“Roger,” the junior officer replied.
“Sir!” someone else called, “Bogey is throwing up ECMs like it’s going out of style!”
The first officer looked back at his screen. Sure enough, the radar readout of the enemy vessel was flickering like mad.
“Do we still have a lock-on?” the commander demanded.
“Yes sir,” the radarman replied, “Satellites are standing by.”
“Sir!” a third technician cried out, “Enemy warship has fired missiles! The ECMs were just a decoy!”
The commander thought about how that was the point of Electronic Counter Measures, but he held his tongue as he raced over to the officer’s station. Sure enough, missiles were streaking through the sky towards the atmosphere.
“Open fire on the enemy ship!” the commander bellowed, “Target those missiles! Destroy them!”
“Sir,” the radioman piped up, “I have a message from Command.”
“Belay that order!” the base commander ordered the weapons officer, whose hand hovered over the trigger, “Let’s hear this.”
“Vandenberg Command to Commander NORAD,” the message played, “Do not open fire on Enemy Vessel. Spacecraft from Moonbase Alpha are preparing to intercept and board. Focus defences on enemy missile salvo.”
The weapons officer obliged, locking onto the missiles and firing.
In orbit, the satellites’ 80-millimetre railguns began shooting. The magazine-fed guns shot round after round at the missiles, destroying them one by one.
As soon as one ten-round magazine was emptied, a mechanism ejected it from the satellite, while another mechanism fed another one into position.
Despite the best efforts of Earth’s orbital defences, one single missile slipped through. The rocket streaked through the sky, penetrating the atmosphere. It flew lower and lower, until it impacted an apartment building in the middle of New Delhi, India.
Inside the NORAD bunker, everyone fell silent as the blip representing the missile disappeared.
“We have a confirmed impact in Delhi!” someone cried out, “Rescue teams are on the way!”
The radio crackled again.
“Commander NORAD from Vandenberg Command,” the person on the other end spoke, “Previous order is rescinded by order of President Kain. Enemy warship is to be targeted to prevent it from fleeing.”
The commander turned to the weapons officer.
“You heard them,” he said, “Fire!”
**********************************************************************************
Major Black and the rest of Bravo Six sat in silence as the UD-1 streaked towards the Consortium vessel. Flying alongside them was another dropship carrying Bravo Four, led by now-Captain Silver.
Escorting them were four F-41s, each one armed to the teeth. Black’s face continued to grow darker as he heard the reports trickling in from India.
“Fatalities in the city are at an estimated 51% already,” someone was saying on the radio, “We have to wear full MOPP gear just to cross the border.”
There was a gasp as another group of rescuers saw the devastation that the sub-continent’s capital.
“Oh my… we’re coming up on a small town outside the city limits now,” someone else was saying, “There’s what looks like a schoolyard just to our left. Checking it out now...”
There were several minutes of silence, before multiple expletives were heard over the radio.
“Oh, the humanity!” the person, whoever they were, sobbed, “They’re all dead. All of them!”
Black shut off the radio.
“No more need to listen to that!” he said, breaking the silence “We know what we’re fighting for now.”
“Coming up on enemy vessel now, sir,” Lieutenant Farrell reported, “Enemy anti-air defences are in full swing, but the jets will handle that,” she added.
The ship rocked as the pilot shot several missiles from the hull-mounted launchers.
“Coming into main hangar now,” Farrell announced, “Landing in five!”
**********************************************************************************
“Don’t just stand there!” the ship commander screamed, “Get us out of here!”
“I can’t, sir!” the pilot cried, “The human defences have knocked out our engines. We can’t manoeuvre and the warpspace drive has been damaged.”
“Captain!” someone yelled, “The boarders are advancing rapidly throughout the ship! They’re unstoppable.”
The entire bridge shuddered violently.
“Sir! Main power is offline! Emergency power at ten percent!”
Another explosion, this time from inside the bridge, threw the captain completely off his feet, catapulting him across the bridge. Picking himself up from the floor, he shakily got to his feet.
“What happened?” he asked, looking around the bridge, “What was that?” the captain demanded over the noise of alarms, explosions and the crackle of sparking equipment.
A loud click sounded behind him. Whirling around, the captain came face to face with a human in a fully armoured, black-coloured exoskeleton. The soldier’s face was concealed by a completely sealed helmet, which connected to an armoured neckpiece. The arms and legs were equally well-armoured. The human held a brutal-looking weapon, glaring at the trembling Tark from behind its dark red visor.
“Me,” a deep voice rumbled from the depths of the armour.
**********************************************************************************
Zhongnanhai, Beijing, People’s Republic of China. 2036 A.D. One Day Later…
Chairman Xi Jinping sat at his desk, deep in thought. The report that he had been studying for the past several hours lay next to him at his desk. The report went into extreme detail regarding the devastation the aliens’ weapon had inflicted on India’s capital. According to data stolen from U.N. systems, only a few thousand survivors had been rescued from a city that had housed millions.
The Chairman had a hard time wrapping his head around that. Over 30 million dead in just a few hours. Some were calling it the biggest genocide since the Holocaust.
While there wasn’t any love lost between India and China, and Xi didn’t particularly care about the humanitarian crisis the neighbouring country was suffering, he was worried. The re-routing of international trade by the so-called U.N. Crisis Fund would impact China’s economy very badly in the not-too distant future. Chinese citizens would be deprived of all kinds of goods, from minor things such as baby milk formula, to major things, such as food, oil and other resources vital to the country's operation.
Also, if India, which had the full backing of the United Nations Coalition and their Orbital Defence Grid, could suffer such a tragedy, what hope did China have?
For all the propaganda the Global Times was spouting about the ineffectiveness of the satellite weapons system, Chairman Xi knew that the system had managed to stop all but one missile from getting through. That the one missile contained a highly effective bioweapon couldn’t have been foreseen.
If China continued to resist U.N. unification measures, and the next alien attack came down on Chinese cities, would the U.N. help? Xi Jinping found it unlikely that Kain and his Security Council would let them all die, but he couldn’t be certain. Making up his mind, he reached for a telephone and rang the Chinese Consulate in New York.

Can't get the Intel HD 4600 to fully work on Mojave
Hello,
Recently I decided to move from High Sierra to Mojave for app compatibility, and yesterday I took the time to use Open Core and everything went perfectly with sound and network working right after the Install which is amazing!
However I cannot get the iGPU on my i5 to work at its full potential, the system does recognise it but it show only a few MB of video ram (I set in the BIOS for 1024mb for the Intel HD). Also I have a GTX 970 but I know its impossible to get it to work in Mojave due to Apple so I`m trying a workaround to get the iGPU instead to do the video processing.

2020.09.26 15:55 daimdeux BSOD While installing Win 10 after shutdown

Hello everyone,

My specs are the following, the computer was built in 2018. I had some stability issues at some point until I found a sweet spot with the VEGA settings.

Long story short, the power went off yesterday and shut down my computer.
After, I was not able to boot to windows. I tried windows repair and basic cmd, and differents bootable USB with no avail.
I then tried to do a clean formatting and new installation but I am now facing BSOD during the installation. (IRQL_NOT_LESS_EQUAL & Kernel Security check are the most frequent but I had a lot of different BSOD).

I tried the following:

At this point I am out of ideas and do not have spare parts to test if it is the CPU or motherboard. Would you have any ideas about what may be causing it? My initial bet was on the RAM or SSD but both seems OK.

There is no concern about data loss as I did a recent backup, at this point I am just trying to have this work.

2020.09.26 15:00 gale440 Games Crashing to the Desktop Without an Error. Please Help!

Hi everyone
This problem started last week. I bought some new parts; a new processor, motherboard, and rams. I remove my old ones and install new ones. Format my PC, update everything.
But before I update my bios, I get an error message from windows "choose what to do with removable drive D" but that drive D is my local drive. I have an SSD (C drive) which I install Windows and I have an HDD (D drive) which I install my games and other programs.
I update my bios and it's gone. But 2-3 days after that, my game (CoD: Warzone) crash to desktop and I got the same message from Windows again "choose what to do with removable drive D". And I notice that every time this happens, Steam is closed also without and error. They are in the same drive (D)
So, I open my PC case and change the HDD's connection data port. Install HWMonitor for checking temperatures and try to play that game again. Again, the same thing happened. Game crashed to the desktop without an error, Battle.net (CoD's launcher) closed with an error ("Battle.net stops working"), and also Steam closed too. But HWMonitor remains to run. (HWMonitor installed in D drive too)
This error happened every time I try to play CoD: Warzone but I can play HoTS, Anno 1800, iRacing, Assetto Corsa Competizione, and stream at the same time without an error or crash.
So I deleted Warzone. Everything is fine until today. I was playing Escape From Tarkov and it happened again. All the symptoms repeat itself again. Game crash to the desktop without an error. Steam also closed and HWMonitor remains open.
Do you have any idea what is wrong with it?
PC Specs:
-AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
-Nvidia GTX 1660 Super
-MSI B450 A Pro Max Motherboard
-G.Skills Ripjaws 16GB 3200Mhz Rams
-650 or 700W PSU (I can't remember exactly but it's at least 650W)
Windows 10
I created this post in pcgamingtechsupport but no one helped me :(
Thanks in advance

2020.09.26 13:35 the_lord_me Stuck in infinite automatic repair loop

Hi, my Windows is stuck in an automatic repair loop for some days now and I can't get out of it.
I have tried the autorepair tool, starting it in safe mode and repairing it with the Windows USB stick but that all didn't work. I also tried to restore it to a restore point but that also didn't work. When I enter the BIOS all components are listed so I don't think it's a hardware problem.
Is there any other solution that I can try? If not can I save the personal data on the C drive?

2020.09.26 12:49 Avaale Everything I found out when researching into Extraction of Snail Secretion Filtrate & Cosrx's Cruelty-Free Claims

I do not consent to this post or any part of it being reposted on any social media (including but not limited to YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat). I do not want to see screenshots of my post on any influencer's Instagram handle/website/blog without my explicit written consent. DM / Modmail me if you would like to share this post or use content from this post on your social media with appropriate credit to the sub and me.


Some of you might have noticed me, lurking in the corners of this sub, shoving my HGs in your faces.
One of those HGs happens to be the Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. I've recently started on my third bottle and each bottle lasts me around a year (I don't use it everyday, it's part of soothing, calming arsenal). So I've been using this for atleast 2 years now.
Recently, I saw Insta stories that this was not cruelty-free. Now, I'm not strictly cruelty free ( I mean theoretically I am, but practically I TRY to be). When I first started using it, cosrx had clarified that it was indeed cruelty free, I also saw a couple of secretion extraction videos and was convinced.
But, I didn't look as deep as I could have. So I'm doing it now.
Warning: This post is content heavy.


Cosrx's Cruelty Free Status

Let's start with what cosrx says, Ethical bunny had contacted cosrx, in 2018 and received this reply.
Excerpt " First of all, we do not test on animals. Animal testing is illegal in Korea. Please note do not test on animals, even for animal-driven products. Also, we currently do not sell in Mainland China"
Freethebunnies.com also lists cosrx in their cruelty free list. Their requirements are as follows
  1. They do not test on animals during any part of production
  2. They do not order materials from any third party vendor who tests on animals
  3. They do not have third parties test their products on animals on their behalf
  4. They do not sell their products in countries that require animal testing by law (i.e. mainland China)
  5. They are not owned by a parent company who tests on animals.
However, two of the biggest cruelty free databases, beg to differ
In Logical harmony, cosrx is on their pending list of brands ie "These are brands that Logical Harmony has reached out to about their stance on animal testing and is waiting to receive a response or is waiting for the brand to finish completing the documents to be listed on Logical Harmony. Once a response is received, the brand will be moved to the Cruelty-Free Brand List, the Brands to Avoid list, or the Grey Area list depending on their response. If a brand is in the process of getting on the cruelty-free brand list, they will be left on the pending list until the process is complete."
And in Cruelty Free Kitty, cosrx is neither on List of officially cruelty free brands or list of non-cruelty free brands

So I'm going back to cosrx's statement
" First of all, we do not test on animals. Animal testing is illegal in Korea. Please note do not test on animals, even for animal-driven products.
While in 2017, South Korea banned animal testing where alternative testing methods are available, the practice continues since there are loopholes to exploit. [1], [2], as of 2019 atleast.
But just because companies in South Korea, still list on animals doesn't mean Cosrx does.
> Also, we currently do not sell in Mainland China"
Beauty and soul states ***"*there are some loopholes (there’s always loopholes)! Hong Kong and Macau, whilst still being governed by China, do not carry the same law which insists that all skincare products must be tested on animals. Therefore, by launching your products into the Hong Kong market and then using mail order / online channels for distribution further into mainland China, many Korean firms have found a loophole into the Chinese regulation without having to compromise their cruelty free status. At the time of writing (Jul 28, 2018), we have confirmation that the following brands use this tactic to avoid animal testing; Cosrx, Mizon, Whamisa, Thank You Farmer, iUnik, Heimish and Helloskin."
So they were technically stating the truth.
Cross-checking cosrx's statement does not convince me, either way.

The Supplier and Extraction Methods

Even if we take cosrx's statement at face value, all of this has only to with the testing part. What seems more important is the question of whether the snails are hurt in the process of extraction.
I found a few amazing articles on the issue,

Thank you u/sonjavad123, for sharing the last two. All great articles and I highly recommend you read them, for a overview on known information about snail secretion extraction.
In the case of Cosrx, according to the Klog article, linked above, the manufacturer is CoSeedBioPharm Co. After searching in all the wrong places (thanks english-korean language barrier), I finally landed at their site.
They have a lot of certifications, but nothing mentioning 'snail' or 'cruelty free'. But I also couldn't confirm whether Korea has it's own version of Cruelty Free certification, Doesn't look like they do, but I'm not a 100% sure.
I also found their product listings, but other INCI name and Product use, everything else is a korean image embed. Link if you'd like to try your luck. Also found this video (lol @ music). But the video showed me, that somewhere out there english data sheets existed, And I found it.
There are only 4 types of snail mucin listed in the data sheet, while their site has 8, with 1 repeat (maybe a sub variant). But we're going to have to make do. The data sheets contain efficacy studies and Two of snail ingredients mention clinical patch test results. So I'm starting to think they don't test on animals?? But the sheet doesn't mention any exact extraction procedures.
Also according to this video, Coseed supplies to
Go through the video to know exactly what products, use ingredients supplied by them.

I also found, their list of patents in Korea (they have 76 patents btw & 93 results in google patents), with the following relating to snail.
[Note: all of this is korean, and I'm using google translate. Unfortunately years of binge-watching k-dramas has not held me in good stead, so who the hell knows exactly what they meant by snail fire bag]
I looked up, the patents and after a few false starts found some of them in English!!!, adding those links above.
Also found a few more snail related patents held by coseed in English.

Below are excerpts from patents that I found most relevant to the cruelty-free debate.
Snail feed with red ginseng and Centella asiatica and breeding method, in particular goes into raising a snail from eggs to adult, with details on what to feed, at what frequency, for how long and feed changes at different stages, how many snails must be left in a single breeding tank, requirements of the breeding tank, also provides experimental examples of survival rates based on different types of feed and breeding methods.
" the survival rate of the snails fed with the feed containing red ginseng and cinnabar seedlings of Example 1 was 98.10% on average, which was higher than that of the snails of the Comparative Examples 1 to 3. In addition, the survival rates of the snail feed of Comparative Example 1 and the snail feed of Comparative Example 2 were 88.3% and 87.9%, respectively, which was higher than the survival rate of the conventional snail feed, Comparative Example 3, of 82.1%."
" the survival rate of the snail of Example 2, which was supplied with clean environment and fresh feed, was 98.2%, which was 20.5% higher than that of the conventional snail snail survival rate of 77.7% Respectively."
The point being even if they're not raising snails in an optimum environment out of the goodness of their hearts, they doing so to increase survival rates and thereby, more mucin = more profit.

Cosmetic Composition containing red ginseng fed snail mucus already linked above.
" Republic of Korea Patent Publication No. 10-1995-0002741 (1995. 02. 16) relates to a method for manufacturing cosmetics using mucin components extracted from a snail, snail was washed in clean water snail by immersing in hot water containing salt After removing the impurities contained in the snail, the liquid mucin component is collected from the snail, and the collected mucin component is heated to evaporate moisture, thereby extracting the pure mucin component and extracting the extracted mucin component from the basic raw material in the cosmetic manufacturing process. Cosmetics prepared by mixing in the mixing process "is described."
That sounds painful. But it was a method previously patented in 1995. Also it's only about how snail was cleaned, nothing about how EXACTLY mucin is collected.
This is a 2012 patent that mentions "For a period of time, the snails, which had eaten red ginseng, were washed in running water, and only similar sizes (6 ~ 8cm) were selected, sterilized thoroughly with 70% ethanol, and weighed to obtain accurate mucus.
The snail was put into a black net and collected for 6 hours, and then fed again. After giving a 12-hour recovery period, the slime was collected in the same manner as above, and the collected slime was stored refrigerated."
That doesn't sound quite as painful.
Stalking cosrx Instagram, I found this. Leaving aside, the fairy taleish telling, the story seems to match.
So I'm going with cosrx is as cruelty-free as can be without taking into consideration the ethics of growing snails in cages, that's whole other debate, that you need to make up your minds on, for yourself.

But, what about generally? Can we assume all Snail Secretion Filtrate is cruelty-free?

I tried to check, but Snail secretion gave 8988 results and snail extraction gave 28759 results in google patents. And man I'm so not going through all of them.
But I did go through a few that prima facie looked relevant.
From Method for manufacturing snail secretion filtrate and cosmetic including the snail secretion filtrate [2017]
" The step of washing the snails comprises washing the snails using 5% of brine, washing the snails with the mixture of 5% of brine and 1% of vinegar, (B) washing the snail, and (c) washing the snail washed in the step (b) using purified water. Wherein the step (b) includes immersing the snail in the mixture for at least 30 seconds and then repeating the salvage at least four times. The step of scraping the washed snail may cut the washed snail to a size of at least 0.1 mm*."*
This is a korean patent and I would give it the benefit of the doubt for some translation error, if it wasn't repeated once more and if the following claim wasn't there.
"Washing the snail with water; Slicing the washed snail; Extracting a snail extract using a snail; Filtering the extracted snail extract; And And concentrating the filtered snail extract to produce a concentrated snail extract."
I don't even know what to make out of this patent.

From **Method for increasing snail mucus production and extracting the same [2016], Taiwanese patent
" In view of this, the present invention provides a method for promoting mucus secretion of snails with a slight physical stimulation and short stimulation time; the method is to stimulate the secretion of mucus by living snails with a preset voltage*, and the snail after the* electrical stimulation is still a living snail. . In other words, the extraction of snail mucus using the method provided by the present invention does not cause snail death."

From For bio-pharmaceuticals or the snail mucus extraction element of cosmetics [2019] Chinese patent
"Due to slow in one's movements in snail crawling process, the amount of snail pituitary extract is less, is such as acquired using nature Method, be necessarily unable to get a large amount of snail pituitary extract.
The utility model provides a kind of for bio-pharmaceuticals or the snail mucus extraction element of cosmetics, belongs to field of biotechnology.It includes tubular extraction cylinder, one is equipped in the extraction cylinder, and the crawl frame creeped is tilted upward for snail, the crawl frame includes platform of creeping, and connect the plate of creeping for platform of creeping, the plate of creeping has several and along the circumferentially-spaced uniform setting of axial line for platform of creeping, the angle creeped between plate and horizontal plane is at an acute angle, and cylinder bottom is extracted in plate one end connection of creeping, and the other end connects the upper surface for platform of creeping.The utility model can be improved mucous secretion of the snail in crawling process, to improve the extraction efficiency of snail mucus."
So three more methods exist that are prima facie, two cruel and one that may not be.

Also found more ways of extraction on youtube, this Video uses ozone for extraction and this patent that may be somewhat related says it doesn't stress the snails. It infact says "The extraction steps comprises the use of natural substances that do not affect the health of the snail and that actually revitalize its physiological well-being."
This video by a manufacturer **claims to not harm snail either, but it looks cruel...
Obviously I've not gone through or figured out every single snail filtrate extraction method there is in the world but at this point having gone through the few that I have, I'd say cruelty free status depends on suppliers. And even if the supplier claims that the snails are not harmed, there is a grey area where we don't know if they are stressed.

Edit: u/NeverKeepCalm had linked this video in the comments, where the manufacturer claims to spray a secret spray that pleasures them to the point where they secrete a lot of slime, in a special machine he calls spa for snails.

Final thoughts


Also

Completely irrelevant but cool facts. In the Coseed data sheet on the ingredient centella aka Gotu Kola


Just to be clear once again, cause this hasn't stopped, "I do not consent to this post or any part of it being reposted on any social media (including but not limited to YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat). I do not want to see screenshots of my post on any influencer's Instagram handle/website/blog without my explicit written consent.

Hello guys, I'm currently using Arch Linux with cinnamon on a BIOS MBR system. Moving data from device to another is necessary for a lot of users. Now, in case of, data transfer from Windows to android (or vice-versa) is quite easy, whether wired or wireless method. I never used Mac OS. BTW, here we are talking about Linux. Now, I didn't tried some techniques but some work with difficulties. The problem is: not mount or more precisely when I plug the USB it doesn't show USB neither on desktop nor in directory. But it shows in fdisk -l. I installed udisks2. But when I plug my android device to pc which have arch Linux installed. It doesn't detect nor mount not even in fdisk -l Now, a lot of time ago I installed nitroshare. Worked with lot of problems. Not work fine that time. Now, I don't remember how to install it again on arch using its .tar.gz file. I tried with the help of internet but nothing worked. I installed android-file-transfer ( from arch wiki) and plugged my mobile device with data cable and turned on mtp but didn't work. May be I didn't done correctly. It will be great help if anyone help me how to use android file transfer. I did installed FileZilla but I didn't be able to use it. It was messed by me when I was trying to use FileZilla with the help of YouTube and internet. Because there were lot of options public/private network and opening ports and all like a ports if it is open means you granted all the outer world connection to enter my computer and that's not safe. So I uninstalled all nitroshare, FileZilla and Android file transfer and all things. Now, any type of help, I mean such method which I can use to transfer data from my android device to arch Linux pc and also I'm on safe side from outer world viruses and malwares, so, any type of help would be great and helpful. I actually need help because I have lost a lot of data because I don't have space in my mobile and have a lots of space in my pc. Any help is appreciated.

2020.09.26 07:50 OscuroMano Dell Latitude e 7240 Won't turn on after a small drop (1.5 feet)... I did a BIOS reset by taking out the CMOS battery for an hour then plugging it back in...

About the BIOS reset a possible mistake I made was sliding the ribbon in upside down the first time (which caused a burning smell probably after putting in the battery). I did all the basic troubleshooting methods like holding the power button (1min) with the battery out, charger out, both out, both in. I just tried testing the DC jack but had my multimeter on 2 DC Volts it sparked once the hot prong touched it (the black wasn't yet touching). Someone on youtube did the same on this laptop (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-47WwNR2ut0). I do have multiple other motherboards where I could use another CMOS battery but they might be different sizes. The ribbon also could be ruined as one strip of copper wiring is out of the casing of the ribbon.
The issue has something to do with the power (of course), whether that's the DC jack, power button, any connecting wire/s, etc. If anyone knows some tips on using a multimeter to test the "health" or continuity on cp components please let me know, there isn't much online about that question. I removed the SSD, I might just start removing other components like the RRAM to see if that might be the problem. If anyone needs pictures please let me know, if this isn't the right sub please inform me. I just have most of my stuff on the pc, desperately need to access the data for college.

2020.09.26 07:47 Ok-Dig-2932 Bioships: Older 'models'

I would like to state that, for the record, I have immense respect for the human capacity to ‘wing it’ in extreme situations as well as their capacity for not panicking in the face of danger. One would not think to use an organic harpoon to… well, the following video log speaks for itself. That being said, I have less respect for them in terms of planning, not because of their inability to, but rather how dirty the more amoral humans can be in such matters. Not to say other species are incapable, but humanity seems to take ‘fine print’ to the extreme. That being said, this video log continues off after captain Oscar Dogwood’s announcement towards my assistant Yuugsch
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
He ceased pinching the antenna and the glow dimmed out. He sighed, shaking his head with a chuckle. “You know, it’s weird. Growing up, I never would’ve guessed that there was a species of aliens that literally ate \Vulgar Expletive**. It’s just that… you don’t see it coming, you know? I expected tentacles, which you kinda fit the bill, and exotic effeminate shapes, but that just kinda… doesn’t come to the mind”.
I nodded in mimicked understanding. “When my race came across the galactic community, we were baffled at first that every single race had a rigid structure. It seems weird, but in hindsight makes perfect sense. The majority have bones, some like Xea-Clon have chitin, even Vehmons have their woody structure. We’re the odd ones out, we’re just blobs of ooze that can barely jiggle outside of an exosuit on other worlds. Our world’s low gravity was a blessing for our development to be sure”.
The human hummed, leaning back in his organic and leathery ‘chair’. “Must be nice, being able to fling yourself through trees like that. Humans used to… do that…”
He sat back up firmly, reading a pulsing membrane giving off data. “That doesn’t look right…”
I was admittedly curious. “What seems to be the issue?”
“Some of the pulses are coming back wrong. If I’m reading this right… there’s hollow rocks up ahead. This system’s barely been touched by us”.
“Spacefaring organisms? They’re not uncommon exactly” I suggested.
“Perhaps…” He murmured, looking closer. “If it comes down to it, it’s not gonna be easy for us if we fight”.
“How so? Aren’t all bioships equipped with some means of defense?”
“Well, technically yes, but Lassie’s a special case. You see, me and her have a long history with each other, I’ve been coddling her since I first became a rock jockey” He said, switching between observational organ feeds. “As a corporate drone though, we gotta do what corporate says. I love Lassie with all my damn heart, but when the time came and they told us to trade out for newer models, I couldn’t bear to part with her”.
A light trilling came from the interface board, making Oscar chuckle as he rubbed it. “I love you too girl. Anyway, what happens to a bioship when a newer ‘model’ comes out is they get sent to ranches. They’re cared for and treated preciously for the rest of their days. When a bioship with weapons gets sent to a ranch two things happen. First and foremost, the telomeres in their cell structure are manually clipped with a genetic trigger. This ah, officially starts their ticker til their end”.
“Bioships are biologically immortal unless this process occurs right?”
“Yeah, it’s sad but unfortunately everything has to go sooner or later and a lot of people pass long before their ships reach that point. Most of their organic remains after they pass are used at the discretion of the rancher or a particular owner if such an event were to occur”.
“Saddening, though I can see from both a logistical value and an empathic value. Ships, when they simply become obsolete, are usually retrofitted or melted down for parts. In the case of bioships that simply isn’t as easy”.
Oscar exhaled through his nostrils, his expression growing firmer. “We’re gonna have to take this up another time. Lassie, are you seeing what I’m seeing?”
A low, threatening animalistic trill echoed throughout the ship, reminding me of a cornered Gabush. The human sighed, before pinching the microphone stalk. “Battlestations people! Pirates in the rocks!”
No sooner than he said it, I saw mechanical ships zooming out from out of holes in the asteroids, masked in the shadow of the system’s old star. He grimaced. “Shrikes. So they’re human pirates. Figures, I guess this place is as barely touched as my ex, and that means they know not to board us til we’re dead. Alright, so I gave you the first thing that happens to a bioship when she’s getting sent to a ranch, but the second one is the reason why this is gonna be a \Vulgar Expletive*. The second thing a bioship loses when it gets sent to a ranch is its weapons. Happens in a process called declawing. Lassie here thankfully didn’t get her telomeres snipped, but she *was** declawed. Real glad I managed to buy her before the T-snip”.
“... what,” I said simply, hoping I didn’t hear that right.
“Don’t worry, that doesn't mean we’re defenseless. Alpha one, fire!”
On the video feed, an organic harpoon shot out as quickly as a kinetic round, piercing the metallic ship. The harpoon, still being attached however, meant the ship rotated with the direction of the pirate ship.
“ARE YOU \Vulgar Expletive** CRAZY!?” I yelled through my exosuits speakers.
“Nope!” He yelled with a grin, placing his paws fully spread out onto the interface. “Watch this!”
Lassie rotated, not fully fighting the inertia of the pirate but giving enough tug to make it do a u-turn. The pirate was forcefully swung around and collided with another ship that was just coming out from behind another asteroid.
“Hell yeah! I beat a \Vulgar Expletive** with another \Vulgar Expletive**!” He shouted, turning around. A trilling sound echoed painfully across the ship.
“Taking kinetic fire! Disconnect Alpha one! Alpha two, fire!”
The first harpoon, damaged from the ship explosion, burst off in a thin mist of organic matter, now floating away. Another harpoon shot out, this time at an asteroid. With surprising speed, the bioship found itself quickly closing the distance. Now connected, the asteroid started spinning from the sudden jolting collision. As the space rock rotated away from the other pirate ships, Oscar took his next course of action.
“Latch docking claws! Retract Alpha Two! Vent digestive gases at frontal siphons until stable!”
The ship rotated, and observational organs displayed chemical bursts from parts of the ship that adjusted the space rocks rotation. Just in time, as more fire had preemptively shot off against the rock, chunks being spat off and sent floating away. He waited patiently, making my membrane tremor nervously, then his lips split apart once more.
“Beta One, fire!”
Like the true organic harpoon it was, it shot out in a straight line, its sinuous connection a trail. It collided with another rock, and judging by the orientation of everything both the rock we were attached to and that one were on a collision course, before another admittedly creative thing happened.
“Vent digestive gases at topside siphons until collision is detected!”
Both rocks spun around, the harpoon holding taut but strong. I caught a brief glimpse of a speeding ship before it exploded, completely mauled by the spinning asteroid. Another ship, probably one that was originally maneuvering around the one Lassie dug its claws into, was slashed with a free claw, having flown too close. It spun out before colliding into an asteroid and floating aimlessly. With its right wing clipped and rear thruster smashed out, the pirate realized they were essentially dead in the water without proper steering.
“Hey, jello shot! Remember when I said some of the asteroids were hollow?!” He yelled, certainly directed at me.
“Yeah?!”
“Well I’m about to crack one open like a coconut!”
“What’s a coconut?!”
Without answering, the spinning asteroid collided with one of the larger floating rocks in the gas giant’s belt. A dull vibration reverberated throughout the bioship, and the target asteroid split open, revealing metallic plating that tore and twisted, venting gas and, to my horror, bodies. I only saw a few, but it was still chilling, seeing some of them grasp at their throats. The remaining pirate ships flew off behind asteroids to no doubtedly hide and rethink things. Immediately, bio-screens flared and soft trilling rang from one of the ‘speakers’ on the display. Hesitantly, he pinched the stalk and opened his lips.
“Hello?”
“We wish to surrender,” A female human’s voice spoke out from the speakers.
“... Okay then”
He let go of the stalk and sighed, rubbing his temples.
"I \Vulgar Expletive** hate this job".

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This one actually took me a hot second. I had intended to release it at midnight, only for 1:45 a.m. to arrive. Mostly cause I kept getting distracted by my cat. Sue me. Anyway, as much as I wanna just rapid fire these out I'm going to be out for a couple of days this weekend helping my grandma paint her house and whatnot, and the distance + time means I'll be camping out there for a night to save my uncles gas, but I'll try and at least pop out one per day.

2020.09.26 07:23 Mathisbuilder75 Hard drives bot appearing in BIOS

Hello, I just changed my SSD in my Lenovo Legion Y540. It was the default 512 Gb Micron and I switched it for a 1TB WD black SN750. I made a copy of my old SSD on my HDD using AOEMI, then I changed the SSD for the new one and loaded my old SSD data from my HDD onto my new one. Now, when I want to boot my computer in the BIOS, there is no option to boot it from any hard drive, even though it recognizes there are present in the system info. Help would be nice, thanks.
