The best software to create Bootable USB

 

images
If you want to create bootable USB sticks at computer startup you may need one of the software listed below. In fact, it often happens to put the operating system on your pen and you have to extract the file archive. If you extract it normally with an archive software (winzip, 7zip, etc.) it can happen that it does not start when the PC starts up. Then you will need to extract it and install the boot files with one of the following software

 

RUFUS [WIN + MAC + LINUX]

rufus_142908.png

It is absolutely the best software to create pens and bootable usb devices. Works with windows, linux and mac. I recommend it especially for windows and mac while for linux it’s better its dedicated netbootin software

https://rufus.ie

 

UNETBOOTIN [LINUX]

unetbootin_96538

It only works for linux. The advantage of this software is that it allows you to automatically download the most common versions of Linux distros.

UNIVERSAL USB INSTALLER [WINDOWS]

universal-usb-installer_94974

It would be the possible alternative to RUFUS because USB universal only works on Windows. Although RUFUS is ideal you will never have the certainty that it starts as it should.

Here’s what’s happening in Hong Kong…

HK

Many of you have certainly heard in recent days about the clashes between police and student demonstrators in Hong Kong. But what’s really going on? As is well known, Hong Kong is a state of its own but is a special administrative region of China.

It has its own currency, its own culture, its own political system and above all its judicial system, which includes the right to freedom of speech and of expression. Autonomy, however, has an expiration date: in 2047 it will lose the special permits of Hong Kong and China will be able to put its hands in the capitalist economic system and in the rights and freedoms of its citizens.

For an amendment to the law on extradition (the practice whereby a State delivers to another State an individual who is in its territory, but who is the object of a criminal action in the other). At the moment Hong Kong has extradition agreements with about twenty countries, but not with China. The amendment would have forced the region to hand over to China suspects from Beijing for certain crimes. Many people, however, saw the risk of new human rights violations, and the use of extradition by the Chinese as a pretext to reach political dissidents who had fled to Hong Kong (it was enough to accuse them of crimes and demand their extradition). On June 9, street protests officially began, with one million people taking to the streets.

The protesters demand the withdrawal of the amendment to the extradition law (which took place on 24 October); the establishment of an independent commission of inquiry into police violence; universal suffrage; release and amnesty for arrested protesters; the elimination of the name of “rioters”. “Five requests, not one less”, is their slogan.

Cultivate one’s own culture

How much does our culture influence our character and our life? A lot if what we learn influences us in an unconscious way, that is, so that in the moment in which we do something we are not aware of it.

Although some things enlighten us, we cannot put them into practice. Often the things we learn do not enter our minds and we “forget” them. Thus culture and our cultural baggage must be cultivated constantly, even a little a day …

Our soul is not formed in one blow. But you need constancy and patience. Modeling the character can take a long time. We often forget our aspirations for fatigue, for distractions, or for lack of tenacity. The book represents the icon of our soul, of our history but also of our memories. Sometimes it is mandatory to dust off certain pages of our luggage.

The big brother of the future…

What differs us from animals? Many would answer the instinct. The answer is not wrong, however it is not entirely correct. I would say that another thing that differs us from animals is modesty. If we did not have modesty our actions would not be conditioned by any shame or feeling. Although even animals have a little of modesty, especially dogs, the difference with us is really substantial. The lack of modesty is what is shaping up with the new technologies, especially 5G, which will make our lives increasingly hyperconnected. Where does our public life end and where does the private one begin? The big brother is the parody of the future. The big brother is the parody of the future. Our every look is under everyone’s eyes or at least it could be through spying means like drone and cameras.
You imagine what would happen if computer experts or hackers mounted cameras in people’s homes: there would be no more privacy.
A few days ago the Italian television program Report made a well-documented investigation into all cases of espionage in the world: staggering levels.

“Spying would perhaps be tolerable if it could be exercised by honest people”

[Montesquieu]

 

Hard times for Italy: the Ilva steelworks in Taranto closes.

Ilvasteelworks
A Glimpse of the ilva steelworks in Taranto (Italy)

In recent weeks, Arcelor Mittal, a multinational that acquired the former l’ilva in 2012, terminated the contract by sending 10,000 people home. The interruption of steel production, in addition to the unemployment of people, creates a 1.5% decrease in GDP: a disaster in terms of economy.

The reason for the termination of the contract, according to the statements of the multination, would be that there is no longer any interest in continuing production in the Taranto area. But many have said instead that in reality the reason would be that the company would not want to submit to the rules of the Italian government, which has not renewed the penal shield. Many do not know, that the state, to guarantee the company to work comfortably, has put up criminal shields, to protect any seizures of the judiciary for environmental irregularities.

In fact, due to the steel plant, the Tatanto area has for decades been one of the most polluted areas in Europe and perhaps in the world. Many people in the area surrounding the plant have died of cancer. Almost nothing has been done over the years to avoid this tragedy, and the very high mortality of cancer has scientifically shown how fine particles are 100% the cause of cancer.

For decades it had to go down to the compromise between health and work, an absurd thing. How can the health of citizens be traded for work, which should really be a means of sustenance?

Venice devastated by high water

venezia-acqua-alta-690x362

In the night between 12 and 13 November Venice was devastated by a storm that brought the sea level rise by 187cm! Although high water is almost a customary in Venice, this time the size of the event due to its intensity and consistency has not occurred since 1966, when the water rose by 194cm, a historical record for the city.

There were two victims, including one for electrocution due to a short circuit.

For years, Venice has been building a system called MOSE to block the rise of the sea. This system has cost the state 5 billion euros, with enormous delays in the completion of the works, especially for numerous investigations of bribes that led to the arrest of many people, including the former president of the Veneto region(Giancarlo Galan).

In the coming decades, Venice risks disappearing because climate change will lead to an increase in the sea. Furthermore, the land on which Venice rests is increasingly lowered.

It is incredible how this very serious theme has not led the Venetians to take measures without falling into corruption. Many think that the Mafia exists only in the south, but in recent years all the political scandals have come from the administrations of northern regions.

In the last few months Salvini of the Lega, is enjoying success, despite very debatable issues. He argued that the construction of the TAV (high speed train) was necessary but in reality it is the pretext to steal more money.

George Michael – This Is How (We Want You To Get High)

 

🎡

Although Geroge Michael is no longer there…, a new song was released three days ago.

LYRIC

So you raise another glass looking for a different space,
I was leaning on the grass dreaming of a sunnier day,
oh it never came, how could it have baby
where the present meets the past it’s hard to be more than we’ve seen

Your daddy was a drinker he just kept drinking til the shit he was thinking sounded true,
Your mama was a thinker she just wasn’t thinking on the day that she looked at him and said I do,

Cause I will always I will always I will always I will always try to get my shit together,
I guess we always guess we always knew, that it would be stormy weather

This is how we want you to get high the way that we showed you the way that we told you was decent
This is how we want you to get high, this is how we want you to get by

My daddy was a toker he just kept smoking til the jokes he could tell got very blue
My mama was a joker if she was a hippy then I guess she was tripping on a high love you

Cause I will always I will always I will always I will always try to get my shit together,
I guess we always guess we always knew, that it would be stormy weather

This is how we want you to get high the way that we showed you the way that we told you was decent
This is how we want you to get high, this is how we want you to get by on your sorry lives
Take another, take another

I never picked a fight in my life or raised a hand to my wife or saw my children as things to bully,
I never dropped a pill in a drink I know how low you can sink my heart my heart is better than that
I never picked a fight in my life or raised a hand to my wife or saw my children as things to bully,
I never dropped a pill in a drink I know how low you can sink my heart, my heart is better than that

Looking for a different space, dreaming of a sunnier day, oh it never came how could it have baby
where the present meets the past it’s hard to be more than we’ve seen, its hard to be more than we’ve seen.

🎡 Lewis Capaldi – Bruises

 

LYRIC

Counting days, counting days
Since my love up and got lost on me
And every breath that I’ve been takin’
Since you left feels like a waste on me
I’ve been holding on to hope
That you’ll come back when you can find some peace
‘Cause every word that I’ve heard spoken
Since you left feels like a hollow street
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold ya
You’d keep my head from going under
Maybe I, maybe I’m just being blinded
By the brighter side
Of what we had because it’s over
Well there must be something in the tide
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
It’s your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
And I’m tired of being so exhausted
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Even though I’m nothing to you now
Even though I’m nothing to you now
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under

 

The Best Text/SourceCode Editor for Windows

 

notepadplus

NOTEPAD++

Notepad ++ is an evolution of the classic windows notepad, with which you can write documents in txt, ie notes. It is a very light software and can also be used to view and write source codes. It recognizes a vast amount of file formats. If you want to write only source code I recommend sublimetext, but notepad should not be missing on your computer because it can always be useful.

sublimetext

SUBLIME-TEXT

Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, html and prose – any kind of text file. You’ll love the slick user interface and extraordinary features.

bracketsicon

BRACKETS

As a better alternative to Sublimetext, ie as a pure sourcecode editor, brackets is the best software. It’s free (opensource) and allows you to view the live preview. Because of the consistent graphics it can run a little slow.

GEANY

Geany is a small and lightweight Integrated Development Environment. It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a few dependencies from other packages. Another goal was to be as independent as possible from a special Desktop Environment like KDE or GNOME – Geany only requires the GTK2 runtime libraries.
