Kudos to the great leadership by Jeremy Elbourne. This is a x-mas present to the community; the result of hard work from the ngM2 developer team.

Homopolar Motor

The homopolar motor is the simplest electric motor that uses direct current to power rotational movement. It was first built and demonstrated by Michael Faraday in 1821 at the Royal Institute in London. The name "homopolar" is used because the polarity of the magnetic field emitted by the conductor and the permanent magnets does not change (unlike conventional DC motors).

The resulting rotational movement of the copper conducting wire is caused by the Lorentz force. A conductor (the wire) with a current flowing through it (from the battery) that is placed in a magnetic field (from the magnet) perpendicular to the current experiences a force in the direction perpendicular to both the magnetic field and current. This force provides torque around the axis of rotation and causes the conducting wire to spin.

Put more technically, the Lorentz force is the combination of electric and magnetic force on a point charge. If a particle with charge q moves with velocity v in the presence of electric field E and a magnetic field B, then it will experience the force F = qE + qv x B.

Unraveling the jet-lag asymmetry
Flying toward the east tends to produce more jet-lag for travelers than flying toward the west. A team of researchers have developed a model of the part of the brain that handles the body's circadian rhythm that may explain this asymmetry. Using non-linear dynamics they studied how variations in the behavior neurons in the suprachiasmatic nucleus are affected differently by the different travel directions.

Check out this Plunkr with Angular Material 2 + Flex-Layout. We have a sideNav that is now responsive to auto close/open when the viewport <600px. Also uses multi-slot content projection.

The ingenious Mayan way of making a right angle.
How do you construct a right angle when you haven't got a way of measuring angles? One very clever way comes from the Mayan people. The classic Maya period ran roughly from 250 to 900 AD. During that time the Maya constructed hundreds of cities in an area that stretches from what is now southern ...

Illustration of the fundamental relationship between sine, cosine and the circle.

Notice how the crank moves in a circle, and the bars — which correspond to sine and cosine — move up and down and side to side in a wave-like formation:

Fantastic service and communication that included shuttle drop-off and (even) pick-up when the car was ready. I requested a 1-stop service that included a full detailing... all done without any problems. My Mercedes S550 car was returned to me in "like-new condition" purring like a cat. The staff phone calls, emails, and PDFs with pictures were a superb touch for a truly professional servicing complete with amazing communication. Best of all - I did not have to donate an organ to pay for the repair bill.
