Making money by salvage in the Tales of Pirates
I usually felt sad when I had no Tales of Pirates gold. I had to wait long time for the gold when I product the gold. I knew an easy way to get it not time before. It was salvage. I need a ship with mechanical hand. I had to stop the ship in the sand city. I never took money when I was here. It was easy to make money. There are many coordinates of the salvage place. In fact I got these coordinate from one of my friends. I was so appreciated. I could not know how to salvage without the coordinate. I would never make Tales of Pirates money of course. It was better to go the two places 852, 3816 and 967, 3862. They are near the city. I went there most of the time. I could come back after the salvage.
In fact I had to be careful when I was busy salvaging. The ship would sank when the game updating. I lost the item usually. I had asked the game manager what I can get from the salvage. He told me just 3 items I can get, including the super china, super silk and crystal statue. I did not pick the super china when I saw it. The trader did not buy it in the city. I could sell the super silk and the statue in the city, so I usually picked them. I could make much gold every time after salvage. I had no need to buy Tales of Pirates Gold with my money. I had saved much money after I knew the way to make money.
In fact I usually took the super china to the other city to sell when I had much. It is cheap usually. I sold it out in low price. I did not want to spend much energy to sell it with cheap Tales of Pirates gold. I had got some skill in the salvage after long time. Every time I used the skill when I reached the place where the ship sank. After the ship disappeared I went on picking up the items. I could pick fewer items by this way.
I tried other way to pick up the items today. I thought this way was better. It was fastest. I salvaged sank ship with skill then I stopped. I picked up the items if there were some items appeared, or I would continue to salvage. I can got much more items by this way in the same time.
What would it be like to experience the 4th dimension?
Physicists have understood at least theoretically, that there may be higher dimensions, besides our normal three. The first clue came in 1905 when Einstein developed his theory of special relativity. Of course, by dimensions we’re talking about length, width, and height. Generally speaking, when we talk about a fourth dimension, it’s considered space-time. But here, physicists mean a spatial dimension beyond the normal three, not a parallel universe, as such dimensions are mistaken for in popular sci-fi shows.
If machines develop consciousness, or if we manage to give it to them, the human-robot dynamic will forever be different.
- Does AI—and, more specifically, conscious AI—deserve moral rights? In this thought exploration, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, ethics and tech professor Joanna Bryson, philosopher and cognitive scientist Susan Schneider, physicist Max Tegmark, philosopher Peter Singer, and bioethicist Glenn Cohen all weigh in on the question of AI rights.
- Given the grave tragedy of slavery throughout human history, philosophers and technologists must answer this question ahead of technological development to avoid humanity creating a slave class of conscious beings.
- One potential safeguard against that? Regulation. Once we define the context in which AI requires rights, the simplest solution may be to not build that thing.
Duke University researchers might have solved a half-century old problem.
- Duke University researchers created a hydrogel that appears to be as strong and flexible as human cartilage.
- The blend of three polymers provides enough flexibility and durability to mimic the knee.
- The next step is to test this hydrogel in sheep; human use can take at least three years.
Duke researchers have developed the first gel-based synthetic cartilage with the strength of the real thing. A quarter-sized disc of the material can withstand the weight of a 100-pound kettlebell without tearing or losing its shape.

Their <a href="https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/adfm.202003451" target="_blank">new paper</a>, published in the journal,<em> Advanced Functional Materials</em>, details this exciting evolution of this frustrating joint.<br></p><p>Researchers have sought materials strong and versatile enough to repair a knee since at least the seventies. This new hydrogel, comprised of three polymers, might be it. When two of the polymers are stretched, a third keeps the entire structure intact. When pulled 100,000 times, the cartilage held up as well as materials used in bone implants. The team also rubbed the hydrogel against natural cartilage a million times and found it to be as wear-resistant as the real thing. </p><p>The hydrogel has the appearance of Jell-O and is comprised of 60 percent water. Co-author, Feichen Yang, <a href="https://today.duke.edu/2020/06/lab-first-cartilage-mimicking-gel-strong-enough-knees" target="_blank">says</a> this network of polymers is particularly durable: "Only this combination of all three components is both flexible and stiff and therefore strong." </p><p> As with any new material, a lot of testing must be conducted. They don't foresee this hydrogel being implanted into human bodies for at least three years. The next step is to test it out in sheep. </p><p>Still, this is an exciting step forward in the rehabilitation of one of our trickiest joints. Given the potential reward, the wait is worth it. </p><p><span></span>--</p><p><em>Stay in touch with Derek on <a href="http://www.twitter.com/derekberes" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, <a href="https://www.facebook.com/DerekBeresdotcom" target="_blank">Facebook</a> and <a href="https://derekberes.substack.com/" target="_blank">Substack</a>.
