Get ready to ring in 2017 with a brand new Periodic Table, because four more elements have officially been added to the seventh row: nihonium (Nh), moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts), and oganesson (Og).

We’ve been hearing about these four new elements since January, but the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) has finally announced that the names have been officially approved, so we’ve got the go-ahead to tear down all our posters and find some new ones.

"Following a five-month period of public review, the names earlier proposed by the discoverers have been approved by the IUPAC Bureau," the organisation announced today.

"Keeping with tradition, the newly discovered elements have been named after a place or geographical region, or a scientist," they add.

"The ending of the names also reflects and maintains historical and chemical consistency: '-ium' for elements 113 and 115 and as for all new elements of groups 1 to 16, ‘-ine' for element 117 and belonging to group 17 and '-on' for element 118 element belonging to group 18."

The following names and symbols are now officially assigned:

Nihonium and symbol Nh, for the element 113,
Moscovium and symbol Mc, for the element 115,
Tennessine and symbol Ts, for the element 117, and
Oganesson and symbol Og, for the element 118.

In case this is all coming as a bit of a shock to you, back in January, it was announced that the IUPAC had officially confirmed that four new elements had been discovered.

At the time, they were known simply as 113, 115, 117, and 118, and were assigned temporary names and symbols: ununtrium (Uut), ununpentium (Uup), ununseptium (Uus), and ununoctium (Uuo).

Software Development for Good

More and more the industry depends on our knowledge and ability as software developers. Keyword here is "ability". We are in fact "enablers" in the business sense.

In that same way, it is up to us to be "disablers" when things are fishy, unethical, wrong, criminal or directly harmful for society.

We are in the unique position to help make wonderful things possible and reject partaking in negative / destructive ones (because, fortunately for us, it's relatively easy to find another job).

So. I say: let's use our position "for good" and only lend our knowledge, services and abilities to those project that have a positive impact for humanity (or at least, no negative ones).

Having said this, my plea extends to non-software-developers as well. no matter what you do for a living.
