BAE Systems presents an autonomous boat with a machine gun

I do not think anyone has any doubts as to where the development of military technologies is going, including artificial intelligence and robots. The British defense company showed its autonomous boat equipped with deadly weapons.

Pacific 950 is a hybrid boat that combines the advantages of a pontoon and a boat. It was created with the aim of providing even greater maritime safety for the British Navy. It can independently swim across water bodies for up to 10 days and cover up to 556 kilometers at that time. A fully automatic stabilized machine gun system with a caliber of 12.7 millimeters was installed on its beak. The army revealed that although the rifle is controlled by advanced artificial intelligence algorithms, the human operator takes the final decision about taking the shot.

The boat has the most modern environmental monitoring systems, including visible and infrared cameras. Despite the full autonomy of the boat, operators will watch over their every mission. Of course, these are temporary activities to better train intelligent systems. In the near future, the boats will already perform the recommended tasks themselves, which will consist in observing the sea, detecting the threat and attempting to eliminate it.

Autonomous systems in the army are aimed at reducing injuries and even protecting the lives of soldiers. If, in sum, such automatic and repetitive activities can be carried out by robots, why unnecessarily expose people’s lives. Pacific 950 boats will soon participate in REPMUS military maneuvers organized by NATO in Portugal. If they write for a medal, and certainly will, they will find equipment for the army in the next few months.

Cinema on the go: watching films on vacation

streaming movies online

An endless seeming car drive with lots of traffic jam and whining children in the back seat – not a pleasant scenario, but unfortunately just during the holiday time always sad reality. There are so many great films just waiting to drive away the boredom on arrival and at the same time are a great way to have evening entertainment.

Streaming is the magic word and who thinks of stripes on the windowpane, should read this article very carefully, because we explain today, as well as on vacation does not have to do without real Hollywood blockbusters, TV highlights and series. For this, we show various options that are currently available to view online movies directly or to download them to your tablet or smartphone.

Before the film fun on vacation can start now, we would like to conclude by giving two important tips .

Tip 1: We strongly advise against the use of illegal portals for the free streaming of content of all kinds, because Internet piracy is not a trivial offense, but a criminal offense and is punished by the law.

Tip 2: If you are unsure whether Wi-Fi is made available at your holiday resort and you do not want to overstrain your mobile data volume, you should consider at home which movies or TV shows you would like to watch on vacation and then download them in advance. This saves frustration at the resort and additionally awakens the anticipation of the approaching vacation.

The simplest and probably most cost-effective variant of mobile movie enjoyment can be found in the numerous media libraries, which are provided by both the public and the private television stations. It usually contains not only the archived television program, but also current broadcasts can be streamed comfortably or even download directly. Fans of daily aired series, such. The media libraries are not only a good option for fans of series, but also a real win for quiz friends, and crime scene supporters.


The market leader in online video streaming services is Netflix and offers a very wide range of services, especially in the English-speaking market. Initially launched as an online video store, Netflix now also produces series and films, such as “House of Cards” or “Orange is the new black”, which are also enjoying growing popularity in Germany. Compared to other paid network video stores, such. For example, Maxdome, Watchever or Hulu Netflix is ​​one of the laggards in Germany, but this is in terms of variety and price-performance ratio in every way. For which of the providers film and serial fans ultimately decide, however, should be well considered, because there are both series and films, which are only available at one of the services. It is worthwhile, then, before completing a paid subscription, to see if the favorite series or movie is also available on that platform.

Amazon Video (Prime)

The shipping giants from the US probably knows almost everyone in this country, but that in the Amazon Prime subscription also an extensive streaming offer is included, has only in recent years as a serious competition to the popular streaming services prevailed. The film and series repertoire can certainly keep up with the competition and it will, as well as Netflix, already own productions, such as the gritty science fiction series “The Man in the High Castle” rotated. The big advantage that Amazon Video brings over other providers is that it is included in the Prime subscription. So if you already own such a subscription, Amazon Video can be used without any additional costs. The disadvantage of this is, of course, that Amazon’s prime offer is generally associated with higher costs,

Google Play and iTunes

If you own a smartphone, you will automatically have one of them: GooglePlay is installed on mobile phones with an Android operating system, and iTunes can be found in Apple users. However, not only films and series, but also apps, ebooks and even newspapers and magazines can be downloaded. The big difference to the other streaming options presented here is the payment system, which does not provide for a flat-rate subscription on GooglePlay and iTunes. Thus, no monthly contribution is paid, but the user must pay a certain contribution per content. This means that each movie and episode of a series must be downloaded, streamed, and paid for separately.


FMovies is a leader in free movie streaming. Everyday website is updated with hundreds of newest movies and episodes of popular tv series. It doesn’t contain ads and doesn’t require registration. You can watch your favorite tv shows or just released movies in safe and legal way.

Pornhub records cosmic interest in adult films with Strangers

It seems that the Facebook event Storm Area 51, which assumes an organized assault on a closely guarded military base, which gathered 1.5 million people, has strongly sparked interest in contacts with extraterrestrials.

Also very intimate, because, as Pornhub informs, many people are preparing for this event by watching appropriate videos for adults 🙂 And as you can guess, there are many more than those who will actually appear on September 20 at the military base in Nevada to force the authorities to reveal secrets hidden on the spot, i.e. aliens and their technologies, as attempts to convince us of conspiracy theories.

Pornhub reports that since July 12, recorded a huge increase in searches for the term “Area 51”, i.e. from zero to 160,000 in just 4 days – only 16 July, the relevant searches were 59 thousand. At this point, the service statisticians decided to take a closer look at the matter, that is also other searches related to the subject of strangers, and it turned out that it was a surprisingly popular genre, even before facebook action, because every day adult movies about space themes are looking for over 30,000 people.

After the memes and all the turmoil caused by the assault on Zone 51, the popularity of these searches has even skyrocketed – by 217% on July 2, and then by 199% about two weeks later, on July 15. When it comes to specific searches, the “alien impregnation” and “alien sex” are unrivaled, and then we find the “alien belly” (maybe a reference to one scene from the iconic Alien of 1979?), “Alien eggs”, “alien abduction” “And” alien probe “.

Interestingly, these searches are 33% more popular among women than men and for 67% of them the age group 18-24 corresponds (popularity decreases with increasing age). As far as searches in the context of specific countries are concerned, they are not the most popular in the United States – admittedly, an increase of 25% was noted here, but the Czechs turned out to be unrivaled, because here an increase of 67% was noted. How about us? It seems that the Poles are also interested in this topic because we are talking about an increase in the number of searches at the level of 12%. More detailed data (see here).

Medicine Genetic modifications in China will make children there be geniuses

Everything points to the fact that in the near future China will become a land of geniuses, all due to common genetic modifications that will significantly increase children’s intellectual abilities.

The Middle Kingdom is now the absolute pioneer in the world of the subject of genetic modification on humans. The local law in this matter is extremely liberal, and the last loud illegal genetic modifications in the world made on several children, although for many controversial, because unethical and immoral, really opened the door to the future of designing and creating supermen.

The Chinese government, on the one hand, is dulling the samowolkę in genetic experimentation on people, but on the other supports billions of dollars scientific institutions and scientists themselves. In the following years, dozens of new laboratories will be created in this country, which will specialize in genetic experiments on humans. Authorities do not hide that they want to use the latest achievements of medicine to create a new, intellectually improved society of geniuses, which will be much more efficiently functioning in favor of the country’s bright future.

The introduction to research on the implementation of this vision was to be conducted by experiments conducted by a Chinese scientist, He Jiankuigen. He modified the genetic makeup of three children, removing the CCR5 gene from embryos. This provided the children with better learning and creating memories. It is safe to say that they will be small geniuses who in the future will feed many of their scientific institutions with their intellect and will contribute to faster technological development of the country. Of course, this is just the beginning of this type of experimentation, but the trail has already been cleared and you can not stop it.

Meanwhile, in the rest of the world, this type of research is forbidden and there is no indication that it will change in the near future. Looking at this issue through the prism of China’s plan, America and Europe are already falling far behind, and in a few years will no longer be important in the development of genetic modification techniques in living organisms. This means that if in a few years China begins to carry out universal programs of genetic modification in children, which will happen on the bank, it will create a terrifying intellectual gap between Asia and the rest of the world that can not be eradicated.

How to Watch Movies Online Without Ads?

watch movies online without ads

I have written several articles on the subject of streaming : how to watch a movie in streaming without registration, where to find a streaming site to watch movies and series in HD or HDRIP quality, where to see streaming football matches etc… For reminder, here is the definition of streaming: it is a digital technology that allows you to play online multimedia content (video and audio in particular) without having to download and store them on your device.

I always emphasize the multiplicity of the legal offers of streaming proposed today (contrary to what was done at the beginning of the web ) as the legal platforms of multimedia content online. Be it Netflix, OCS, VOD sites or catch-up TV sites. But I also know very well that what searchers are looking for is not paid content. They seek above all sites of free streaming (even as the question of the legality of streaming with respect to copyright) to read their media online for free.

One of the main criticisms (sometimes insults) that I am made about these articles: the links in the articles do not lead to free streaming sites containing ads. So I decided to go into the subject of ad-free streaming, starting from the premise that it existed. But does free streaming really exist? Can you really watch movies online without ads? What are the tips or techniques to use to read content online for free without ads?

Why Do Free Streaming Sites Show Ads?

The reason for the presence of online advertising on streaming sites or P2P sites is simple. It’s a way to make money. Or a lot of money for the biggest, most popular streaming sites. The provision of multimedia content is not paid on these sites (copyright infringement), you can well imagine that there is eel rock. You’ve probably heard the phrase, “If it’s free, it is the product”?

This advertising can pay the cost of hosting the website, but the owners of such sites also derive large financial profits. You may tell me, perhaps, that this site also displays advertising via the Ezoic website intelligence platform . Of course, but here the published contents are not illegal and I do not make a profit on the back of the creators of contents or their rights holders…
Big streaming platforms (Netflix , OCS , Amazon Prime Video for online video, Spotify , Deezer or Apple music for listening to music online) do not earn their income from internet advertising (except of course for offers free) but their monthly subscriptions. They are much more profitable than the profits from advertising agencies. On the other hand, they pay the creators and the rights holders of these contents, each work deserving salary.

The answer is easy, if you want to watch movies online for free, you should use one of the paid platforms or one of the recommended streaming websites, with small amount ads or you can install adblock.

Internet Russian special services fell victim to hackers. 7.5 TB of secret data in the network

Does not someone like the idea of ​​disconnecting Russia from the Internet so much, or maybe the contrary and wanted to know the country’s plans in this area? Either way, the local secret services have cause for concern.

This was not a good weekend for the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, or counterintelligence special service of this country, because we have just learned that it was a victim of hackers who managed to steal 7.5 TB of data. And not just any, because they unveil secret FSB projects in the area of ​​de-anonymization of Tor browser users, extracting confidential data from social media or disconnecting Russia from the global network. What’s more, these data were transmitted to the mainstream media, so it was obviously about disclosure and publication.

Behind the whole action is a group called 0v1ru $, which on July 13 broke the security SyTech, a technology company closely cooperating with the FSB in the field of Internet projects, leaving on its main page Yoba Face and photos documenting a successful break-in. Then, the stolen data was transferred to a larger hacking group, Digital Revolution, which dealt with their release in the media and on Twitter, while scoffing at the security of the service and its partners.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time when Digital Revolution has attacked the FSB, but this time we are dealing with the largest data leak in the history of Russian intelligence services, which can cause a lot of confusion. It’s enough to add that on the SyTech website there appeared, among others names of secret FSB projects, such as Arion, Relation or Hryvnia, together with the names of those responsible for them, i.e. the agents were unmasked and state secrets revealed.

And although we are talking about serious projects involving the secret acquisition of data from social media (Nautilus), unmasking users trying to anonymize their network activities (Nautilus-S), collecting data on Russian companies (Mentor) or Russia’s independence from the global Internet, it really … there is nothing new here. We have heard about most of these matters for many years, for example attempts to destroy the Tor network, which have lasted at least since 2012, and in fact only the scale of the data leakage is surprising.

In short, contractors as always appear to be the weakest link in intelligence agencies and this is happening all over the world – it is enough to mention that last week a former US National Security Agency (NSA) colleague was convicted for stealing the secrets of the agency for 20 years. As for the data from the leak itself, 0v1ru $ ensures that it has been made available in its original form, but as the group is still not known, you can not be 100% sure. What about the FSB itself? As you can guess, it did not comment on the matter at all.

Internet FaceApp is a Russian surveillance machine? The Minister of Digitization took the floor in this matter

Admittedly, similar questions and doubts appear almost in every application, which gains so much popularity in a short time, but this time it seems that we are all in great danger.

Let’s start with the fact that FaceApp has been on the market for some two years, but only now has become wildly popular, and all thanks to the feature that everyone can see how it will look like a pensioner (previously, the software allowed to test a new style or hair color ). It turned out to be a hit, because the internet was flooded with photos of social media users sharing their older versions for several dozen years. Unfortunately, most of them probably did not even look at the rules of using the application, and there you can find very disturbing information.

First of all, in order to use FaceApp, we must allow him access to our photos – if we use the smartphone application for this purpose, she gets access to all photos from this device, even if we want to modify only one (specialists from Tech Crunch say, that he is able to access the photos on iPhones even if the user has set the permissions to “never”), and after logging in with Facebook, we provide the software with all the pictures from our profile.

This is not all, because FaceApp stores not only our photos but also all the information provided by the device we use, ie. Viewed websites, applications and other activity, location or IP address. And although we hear at every step that it is only about improving the quality of service provision and personalization of advertising, many cyber security specialists have serious doubts here. Especially that in the privacy policy there is a direct notation that the application does not guarantee the security of this information, some of them can make available to business partners, and in the event of sale of the company will pass everything on to new owners.

This does not sound appealing, but it can not be concealed that we are currently using so many applications, which we grant so many accesses that probably one does not make much difference, but … its creators are from Russia, which ignited some of many lights warning. Well, because it is not known today that Putin’s authorities are able to influence local enterprises and obtain data from them not entirely via legal channels, which is why the Americans decided to act.

Democratic leader of the Senate, Chuck Schumer, asked the FBI and the Federal Trade Commission with a request to check FaceApp. He argues his position with the possibility of transferring personal data of American citizens to the enemy state. It was enough for the machine to move in other countries, for example ours, because the Minister of Digitization Marek Zagórski also initiated urgent checks in the FaceApp case.

One of them is the Department of Digital Ministry Data Management, which is to check whether the application actually downloads photos and data from our phones, and the other CERT Polska, that is the information security team of the state-owned Scientific and Academic Computer Network, which will check in turn, where exactly the Russian application sends our data. What will the results be? We will probably see for some time, but the scale of the actions taken suggests that something may be on the agenda.

Astronomy New SpaceX missions for NASA will be a great contribution to the development of humanity

The American Space Agency has already trusted Elon Muska so much that it begins to entrust it with the implementation of the most key missions, not only in scientific terms, but also the future of all mankind.

We remind you that NASA recently asked SpaceX for help in carrying out the mission called Asteroid Impact and Deflection Assessment (AIDA), which it wants to implement with the European Space Agency. As part of it, a special Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) vehicle is created, the aim of which will be to fly to the planetoid Didymos (65803) and hit it.

Researchers want to test technologies that can be beneficial in this way when Earth is threatened by some cosmic rock. It may all seem like a script for a sci-fi movie, but the future of our planet and the humanity that inhabits it does not appear in pink colors. Astronomers warn that the threat can come at any moment, and our civilization is completely unprepared for it.

NASA has announced that SpaceX will be included in one of the most daunting missions in human history worth $ 69 million. The role of the people of Elon Muska will consist in successfully launching the vehicle into space using the Falcon-9 rocket. The launch is to take place in June 2021 from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

New SpaceX missions for NASA a great contribution to the development of humanity. Fig. NASA.

Now we find out that the agency is planning to implement another great mission with the help of SpaceX, worth over 50 million dollars. It’s about the Imaging X-ray Polarimeters Explorer (IXPE), or the orbiting cosmic ray observatory. Over 290 kg device will consist of three instruments, whose task will be to measure the polarization of radiation coming from various sources.

The IXPE device will be lifted into orbit at a height of 540 kilometers and positioned in a place where the anomalies in the magnetic field due to the presence of the internal Van Allen belt are unaffected. NASA wants to get more data about the threat of radiation coming from the most energetic objects in the deep space.

In the coming years, the agency plans to commission Elona Muska another key missions. SpaceX undoubtedly enjoys not only a great reputation in the space industry, but above all it is able to carry out missions much cheaper than the competition, which is a very important aspect for NASA when planning economically sound missions.

Astronomy So spectacularly, the start of the Chinese rocket from the perspective of space

A month ago, the world went round the news that China was the third country in history to launch a launching platform rocket. Now we can see the flight of the Long March 11 missile from the perspective of the Earth’s orbit.

The historic moment occurred on June 5. The rocket CZ-11 took off from a platform floating in the Yellow Sea, near the coast of the Shantung province. The Chinese Space Agency (CNSA) reported that the mission was successful, and seven satellites were deployed on Earth’s orbit. It was one of the most daunting missions in the history of the Chinese space industry.

The flight of the Chinese rocket was not only captured from the perspective of the sea, but also in the lens of a satellite camera called Jilin-1. At the time of registration of this event, the device was located at a height of about 550 kilometers above the Earth’s surface and moved at a speed of 8 km / s. Of course, CNSA planned the entire undertaking, because it was a historical event, but still the engineers deserve a big applause, because it was quite a complicated task.

The Jilin-1 satellite is one of nine devices operated in orbit by Changguang Satellite Technology Co. Ltd. On a daily basis, the devices perform optical observations of the surface of our planet for the needs of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Interestingly, the Long March 11 missile during this mission took the orbit of the 10th satellite of the Jilin constellation into orbit.

Representatives of the China Space Agency have announced that they intend to build special launch platforms for new missions. They also want to carry out more and more such starts in the near future, because they are not only economically viable, due to the closeness of the equator, but also more secure for residents. Many times it happened that the remains of rockets fell on densely populated areas and led to local ecological catastrophes.

Astronomy Finally, the mystery of the origin of one of the mysterious flashes of the FRB was solved

Could another cosmic puzzle be solved? We are definitely on the right track, although modern technology will not allow us to check some new tracks.

FRB, i.e. fast radio burst or extragalactic fast radio transient, i.e. short-lived, several-millisecond radio signals of extragalactic origin, is one of the greatest mysteries of the space age of human exploration. They reach us from all parts of the galaxy, and so far no one has been able to determine what mechanism is responsible for it and where it came from. Of course, according to advocates of the theory of alien civilizations, their technology is behind them, but scientists are more inclined towards the hypothesis that FRB is responsible for the stars located in our Galaxy.

The first FRB signal was discovered in 2007 during the analysis of archival observational data, and the characteristics of this 5-millisecond signal with a 30-janky intensity stream suggested that it came from outside of our galaxy. This is indicated by the analysis of radio waves, from which it appears that the signal had to pass through significant concentrations of electrons on the way to the Earth, that is, it must come from a large distance and a very strong source. Interestingly, although this first FRB was single, and we have so far managed to register a total of 85, some researchers believe that up to ten thousand can be created every day.

Now we learn that a group of scientists has finally managed to trace the path of one of the signals and with an extremely precise determination of its origin … from a galaxy away from us by billions of light years. Speech on FRB, symbol 180924, which has been able to register the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP), originating from the Galaxy of the size of the Milky Way named by scientists DES J214425.25-405400.81, which is away from us by exactly 3.6 billion years light.

What’s even more fascinating, researchers have even pointed out a specific point in this galaxy, in its “suburbs”, 13,000 light-years distant from the center. It is also known that it is a huge galaxy that does not create new stars anymore, and astronomers are full of hope that now they can learn more about her environment and find tips on what really causes FRB. In short, we know more than before, but we will have to wait a long time for answers to some of the questions.
