Researchers at Siemens, led by Frank Anton, developed an aircraft electric motor that weighs only 50 kg and delivers a continuous output of about 260 kW. This record-breaking ratio means the motor can perform at rotational speeds of 2,500 revolutions per minute, which will eventually make it possible to build series hybrid-electric aircrafts with four or more seats. http://bit.ly/1zoOo97

This black box, initially created as a student project at Carnegie Mellon University, is being used to teach blind students in India and Zambia how to read Braille. Aptly named the Braille Tutor, it uses simple technology and is less expensive and more efficient than other computer programs. http://yhoo.it/1FY7D10

+Harald Hveem​ if you can eat at the restaurant, why do you still cook at home? Maybe its not always open, you aren't the owner or you just want a snack?

Long gone are the days of "Be kind, rewind!" When movies first came out on VHS, it used to take about a full minute to rewind them completely. Now, with optical fibers that can transmit data at 43Tbps, it could take 0.2 seconds to download an entire movie!

This week we’re highlighting IEEE Fellow Gordon Moore, the co-founder of Intel who is known for his prediction that computer processing power would increase exponentially over time, now known as Moore’s Law. His work as part of the team that created the integrated circuit led to many of the innovations we use today, like compact electronics.

DARPA is creating software that would not need to be upgraded for a century. They are currently researching what kinds of algorithms could create software that adapts dynamically over time despite hardware upgrades. http://engt.co/1O9TrBb

That would be done by predicting changes which are not easily modeled. The chinese are way ahead of us on hardware and software. They are home to the Milky Way 2.

"..President.. Did he own slaves.. Actions.. Thomas Jefferson ..Yes ..TJ inherited many slaves. His wife brought a dowry of more than 100 slaves, and he purchased many more throughout his life. At some points he was one of the largest slaveowners in Virginia. 
 
In 1790 TJ gave his newly married daughter and her husband 1000 acres of land and 25 slaves.(Miller)
In 1798 TJ owned 141 slaves, many of them elderly.  Two years later he owned 93. (Bigelow,p537.)
One of TJ’s slaves was Sally Hemings, allegedly the half-sister of his deceased wife.  During TJ’s presidency a rumor appeared in print that she was his mistress.  TJ denied this story, which was also passed on as Hemings family tradition.  The youngest of Heming’s six children (and the only one whose paternity can be traced through  DNA) definitely descended from the Jefferson line, either through TJ, his brother Randolph, or one of Randolph’s sons.  TJ was in the vicinity of SH during each period of conception.(See Miller, p148-176:.)  For a discussion of the DNA issue see: http://tinyurl.com/ckfkk2 and: http://jeffersondna.com
TJ freed one of Heming’s children and allowed another to run away unpursued.  Both of them were light enough to successfully pass for White.(See Miller, p165.) 
TJ freed five slaves in his will, all members of the Hemings family.  Sally was not among them; TJ’s daughter Martha freed her years later.(See Miller, p168.)
 
1776:  (King George III) has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought and sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce: and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms against us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people upon whom he  also obtruded them thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.”  -from TJ's draft of the Declaration of Independence.This paragraph was voted down by the Congressional Congress..": http://home.nas.com/lopresti/ps.htm

Scientists are developing a contact lens with a built-in telescope. The prototype, embedded with miniscule mirrors, can magnify your vision by almost three times. The hope is that this lens will improve the sight of people with age-related macular degeneration  - the third leading cause of blindness globally. +CNN International  #scientists   #maculardegeneration   #telescope   #vision   #blindness   #Science  
Smart contact lenses are using miniscule mirrors and filters to give telescopic vision and fight macular degeneration.
