Hey +Stuart Langridge per your magnet question on Twitter, yes, I think it is possible for a weak magnet to create a stronger magnet in another substance.

Here is my reasoning:

Magnetism is an inherent property of the material. Iron has strong magnetic properties. If we were to heat up an iron bar above the Curie point, and then expose that bar to a magnetic field, the atoms would align along the field. If we then cooled the bar below the Curie point, the atoms would stay aligned.

What the strength of the field affects is the time it takes for all/most of the atoms to align. A strong field would cause this to happen quickly and a weak one more slowly.

It's kind of like ΔT in thermodynamics. If I place an object at 50C in a container kept at 0C, it will approach 0C over time. If that container is kept at -50C, it would reach 0C much quicker.

Sound reasonable or am I talking out of my ass again?

Hey, smart people here on Google Plus. I have a question.

I've noticed that when I buy any modern network appliance-thingie (technical term), they ask me to plug it into the network and then browse some URL, such as

http://find.synology.com

for a Synology box or

http://arlo.netgear.com

for an Arlo camera. It then is able to connect to the webUI of the box on my local network.

How does that work? I have some ideas but I was curious if any of you had done something like this before.

VW engineer gets three years for emissions scandal.

While "following orders" is not an excuse, can anyone give me an example of a high level executive who gets hard time for a scandal?
