Chinese firm announce the creation of the first Graphene Electronic Paper! This could revolutionize the e-paper industry

"(Phys.org)—Chinese based Guangzhou OED Technologies (makers of O-paper displays), in collaboration with another unidentified Chinese company has announced that they have developed what they are claiming is the "the world's first graphene electronic paper." In the announcement, the companies also claim that the product is a breakthrough that will bring e-paper to a new level."

I don't usually do quizzes like this, but I was sucked into this one because it's about books. The result are ridiculously off, though. It guessed my age as between 26 and 30. Even my driver's license picture shows me older than that. It may have been thrown by the fact that I read some books that were YA about 15 years ago. Come to think of it, though, I don't think it included any books that would have come out when I was a YA.  http://www.bookishbuzz.com/2016/05/age-quiz.html

It guessed that I was under 17! That's hilarious.

Many of the older books were ones I chose not to read (or have seen movie versions of, which I did not count for this). And quite a few of the more recent ones were also ones I deliberately decided not to read (50 Shades, Casual Vacancy, one of the ubiquitous YA postapocalyptics). And I do read quite a bit of YA, as many adults do, which I'm sure threw it off as well.

High on the sugar and low on the coffee (at least at today's prices. I can't recall excactly what they were 16 years ago).. Prices are not completely predictable because they don't all rise at the same rate. I wrote about that here: http://uncommoncontent.blogspot.com/2012/04/prices-rise-but-not-evenly.html

"The two American women behind Barbie Savior said that through their 10 years combined experience of volunteering, studying and working abroad they began to question what they once thought was right and good.
"From orphanage tourism, to blatant racism in [the] treatment of local residents, to trafficking children in the name of adoption - the list of errors never ends," the two - who have chosen to remain anonymous - wrote in an email to the BBC.
They are not against all aid work and when asked about medical staff going to help the fight against Ebola, replied:
"We have seen short-term medical teams do amazing things, as well as act in inexcusable ways."
They say that aid workers should act in the same way they would back home.
"For example, nurses in America are not allowed to take Instagram photos of their patients and post emotionally captivating blurbs about how tragic their life is."
They note that in the US, and other Western countries "it was decided that a person's privacy is more valuable than the need of the caretaker to have an emotional outlet" and the same standards should apply in Africa."

The Barbie Savior Instagram account challenges the way that some people perceive volunteer and development work in Africa.

The UN is essentially a massive child-rape organization. The latest rapists are French.

The only aid workers I trust are Israelis.

"a document obtained by New Scientist reveals that the tech giant’s collaboration with the UK’s National Health Service goes far beyond what has been publicly announced.

The document – a data-sharing agreement between Google-owned artificial intelligence company DeepMind and the Royal Free NHS Trust – gives the clearest picture yet of what the company is doing and what sensitive data it now has access to.

The agreement gives DeepMind access to a wide range of healthcare data on the 1.6 million patients who pass through three London hospitals run by the Royal Free NHS Trust – Barnet, Chase Farm and the Royal Free – each year. This will include information about people who are HIV-positive, for instance, as well as details of drug overdoses and abortions. The agreement also includes access to patient data from the last five years."

"But in the years since, more than 100 pounds have crept back onto his 5-foot-11 frame despite his best efforts. In fact, most of that season’s 16 contestants have regained much if not all the weight they lost so arduously. Some are even heavier now.
Yet their experiences, while a bitter personal disappointment, have been a gift to science. A study of Season 8’s contestants has yielded surprising new discoveries about the physiology of obesity that help explain why so many people struggle unsuccessfully to keep off the weight they lose.
Kevin Hall, a scientist at a federal research center who admits to a weakness for reality TV, had the idea to follow the “Biggest Loser” contestants for six years after that victorious night. The project was the first to measure what happened to people over as long as six years after they had lost large amounts of weight with intensive dieting and exercise.....
"There is always a weight a person’s body maintains without any effort. And while it is not known why that weight can change over the years — it may be an effect of aging — at any point, there is a weight that is easy to maintain, and that is the weight the body fights to defend. "
from http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/02/health/biggest-loser-weight-loss.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&smid=tw-nythealth&smtyp=cur
Contestants lost hundreds of pounds during Season 8, but gained them back. A study of their struggles helps explain why so many people fail to keep off the weight they lose.

"The researchers weren’t interested in what the daters discussed, or even whether they seemed to share personality traits, backgrounds, or interests. Instead, they were searching for subtle similarities in how they structured their sentences—specifically, how often they used function words such as it, that, but, about, never, and lots. This synchronicity, known as “language style matching,” or LSM, happens unconsciously. But the researchers found it to be a good predictor of mutual affection: An analysis of conversations involving 80 speed daters showed that couples with high LSM scores were three times as likely as those with low scores to want to see each other again.

It’s not just speech patterns that can encode chemistry. Other studies suggest that when two people unknowingly coordinate nonverbal cues, such as hand gestures, eye gaze, and posture, they’re more apt to like and understand each other"

"With assistance from noninvasive technologies like low-altitude weather-balloon photography, ground-penetrating radar, the Global Positioning System (GPS), and a remote-sensing method called lidar, archaeologists at places like Treblinka and Sobibór are unearthing a trove of new physical evidence. “The key thing is that we have these methods available to us,” Sturdy Colls says. “If you were a police officer, you would never just go and interview witnesses. You would always go to the crime scene.” At both camps, the teams have found a startling array of everyday items and personal keepsakes, as well as the rubble of the gas chambers where unsuspecting victims met their end. But in their quest to use science to illuminate a dark past, archaeologists have clashed with a diverse set of detractors—Holocaust deniers, as might be expected, but also Jewish religious authorities, memorial planning committees, and scholars concerned about the sites’ integrity and the importance of respecting human remains.
The controversy that surrounds the investigations raises vital questions: How necessary is it to turn an exacting new lens on long-buried atrocities? And how can researchers strike an ideal balance between honoring the dead and gathering knowledge for future generations?

Forensic archaeologists are finally exploring what lies beneath the dirt—but not without resistance
