Interesting
Scientists have new evidence that suggests that THC inhibits the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that produces them. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's are caused by the poor formation of those proteins in the brain.

If you want to see beautiful auroras, forget Alaska, Canada, and Iceland—check out Jupiter. At the gas giant’s north pole, the most powerful and luminous northern lights in the solar system shimmer and glow in an endless geomagnetic storm that’s larger than our entire planet.

Scientists have described how charge-carrying particles move in perovskite. Perovskites could be used in the solar batteries of future. New results will help scientists to search for a required perovskite structure by taking into account its fundamental features, rather than at random.

This is such utter nonsense. You reason as if Britain existed in a vacuum. You're cutting off your nose to spite your face and calling it a triumph of plastic surgery.

The interesting thing here is, they did the right thing for the wrong reason. By the time the port would have been up and running, the cost of solar panels in cents per watt, would have made coal obsolete.

The "wrong reason"? Are you suggesting to not ship coal to nations that would harm our climate by burning it is wrong?

Okay, started this course months back. Finished it 5 minutes ago. 8 - 12 hours a day for 3 months, 1,000 videos, 400 hours of video, 5,000 examples, 220,000 lines of code, carpal tunnel syndrome here I come. It is a relief to finally be done with this course.

ulian started off his talk highlighting some fun facts regarding and defining technology disruptions, which he notes have always happened within the lifetime of one person and almost always happened with 20–30 years. Julian touched on the story of Kodak as one of many famous examples of a large company shooting itself in the foot by inventing the technology that went on to kill the company -- with forward-looking implications for the GM EV1 and the Exxon invention of the lithium battery.

Regarding electric vehicles, Julian notes that Chevron bought the patents for the nickel-metal-hydride battery used in the GM EV1 and then stuck it on a dusty shelf to prevent progress. But something less well known is that ExxonMobil invented the lithium battery, in the 1970s. The exact chemistry for ExxonMobil's battery was not really suited for production, but the company patented the lithium battery anyway … and that patent didn't expire until the year 2000. After the patent expired, of course, is when commercial lithium-ion batteries enabled lower-cost and more-practical portable electronics like cell phones and laptops to take off. Julian also talked about other developments in the battery space, such as research that discovered how to make them rechargable, that was also critical.

That essentially led into a discussion of whether the Tesla Model 3 was a better and cheaper vehicle than any ICE car. For that, Julian compared the base Model 3 to the similarly priced and performing BMW 328i in numerous ways. For this segment of the presentation, I think you should just watch, starting at 12:10 in.

Quantum Algorithm Proves That Random Numbers Really Are Random

Juaquin Anderson's profile photo
 
Early computers had hardware random number generator based on analog noise circuits. These were good, and fast. Unfortunately the theory these were based on is forgotten knowledge as electrical engineers study a different curriculum these days, and there is too much emphasis on using quantum mechanics directly as a source of randomness. It's just a bunch of trumped up research that ignores previous solutions.

If we all had the legendary random number generator ic's of old, we would have great security all the time! :-P

Introduction
Classically trained Engineer and Programmer. Involved in open source, software, and hardware. Current interests: 3d printing and nanotechnology, predicting the future of technology, and low cost power production in 3rd world nations using material at hand. 

A simple addendum or thought - Recently I have noticed, there is an accelerating rate of change in science and technology, that seems to be just outside of peoples range of perception. Perhaps they are ignoring it because they do not understand it, or maybe they are paying to much attention to Snooki and the like to even notice.
