Why is Internet growth slowing? Why are those who COULD connect to the Internet NOT doing so? Our Micheal Kende has some ideas... #WEF16

You don't say... And so the economic argument dies a natural death.
 
The assumption that Germany’s tight labour market was tailor-made for job-hungry migrants has given way to the grim realisation that most are an ill fit for an economy mainly seeking highly skilled workers
In Europe and at home, Angela Merkel’s refugee policy is being blown away

Europe is playing a very dangerous social experiment imho and no amount of cultural sessions is going to save them from regressive cultural mindsets.....

Facebook now faces a choice over preserving content deals versus remaining faithful to internet ideals i.e. net neutrality #web   #technews  
Facebook's Free Basics isn't the same as the internet, no matter what the company says. Here's why that's problematic.

Go is an ancient Chinese board game, often viewed as the game computers could never play. Now researchers from Google-owned company DeepMind have proven the naysayers wrong, creating an artificial intelligence - called AlphaGo – which has beaten a professional Go player for the first time. In this Nature Video, we go behind the scenes to learn about the game, the programme and what this means for the future of AI.

The ExoMars 2016 Schiaparelli module in Baikonur | ESA
On March 14, 2016 the launch window opens for ExoMars 2016, ESA’s next mission to Mars, composed of the Trace Gas Orbiter and Schiaparelli.
 
Last month, the two spacecraft left Thales Alenia Space in Cannes, France, where they had been for the final few months of assembly and testing, and headed towards the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
 
With both now in Baikonur, preparations are under way for the launch on a Russian Proton rocket during a window that remains open until March 25.
 
The 600 kg Schiaparelli—pictured here being unpacked in a cleanroom in the cosmodrome—will ride to Mars on the Trace Gas Orbiter. Three days before they reach the Red Planet, Schiaparelli will separate from the orbiter, which will then enter orbit for a five-year mission of studying atmospheric gases potentially linked to present-day biological or geological activity.
 
Schiaparelli will enter the atmosphere at 21 000 km/h and slow by aerobraking in the upper layers, then deploying a parachute, followed by liquid-propellant thrusters that will brake it to less than 5 km/h about 2 m above the surface.
 
At that moment, the thrusters will be switched off and it will drop to the ground, where the impact will be cushioned by its crushable structure.
 
Less than eight minutes will have elapsed between hitting the atmosphere and touching down in a region known as Meridiani Planum.
 
Scientific sensors on Schiaparelli will collect data on the atmosphere during entry and descent, and others will make local measurements at the landing site for a short period determined by its battery capacity.
 
Schiaparelli will remain a target for laser ranging from orbiters using its reflector.
 
The module is named in honour of the Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli, who mapped the Red Planet’s surface features in the 19th century.
