Credit: Dae-Yeong Lee, et al. ©2013 IOP Publishing Ltd The researchers, Dae-Yeong Lee, et al., from Sungkyunkwan University and Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, both in South Korea, have published their study on the hybrid energy harvester in a recent issue of Nanotechnology.”By using the hybrid energy harvester, two different energy sources can be utilized in one platform,” coauthor Hyunjin Kim at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology told Phys.org. “Thus the total output power from the hybrid harvester can be increased compared to each separate harvester. Furthermore, by harvesting two energy sources in one device, continuous output can be generated even when only one energy source is available.”To design the harvester, the researchers turned to silicon nanopillar solar cells for the sunlight harvesting half of the device. Previous research has shown that silicon nanopillar solar cells are promising candidates as photovoltaic devices due to their low reflection, high absorption, and potential for low-cost mass production. After fabricating the cells using a plasma etching technique and annealing processes, the researchers coated the top of each cell to prepare it for placement of the piezoelectric generator, which was stacked on top using a spin coating method. Last, top and bottom electrodes sandwich the device.The entire harvester has a height of just a few hundred nanometers, with the bulk of the height coming from the 300-nm-tall nanopillars in the solar cell. In tests, the energy harvester could generate electricity from the solar cells with a 3.29% conversion efficiency. At the same time, the harvester could generate 0.8 V of output voltage when exposed to a 100-dB sound. The hybrid device suggests that harvesting both solar and vibration energies can enable more efficient harvesting in certain environments compared to a device that harvests just one kind of energy. “This energy harvester can be very useful where there is no electric grid connected,” coauthor Won Jong Yoo at Sungkyunkwan University said. “For example, this device will be useful in moving vehicles such as moving boats, trains, automobiles, etc. The output of 0.8 V is just preliminary data. If we optimize the device structure and fabrication condition, the output power will be increased significantly.”In the future, the researchers plan to fabricate all-flexible hybrid energy harvesting devices using plastic substrates in order to harvest mechanical energy more efficiently.

Since these conditions don’t exist all the time, most energy harvesters don’t generate a constant stream of electricity. In order to harvest ubiquitous energy continuously, researchers have designed and fabricated a hybrid energy harvester that integrates a solar cell and piezoelectric generator, enabling it to harvest energy from both sunlight and sound vibration simultaneously.

New idea for Dyson sphere proposed

first_img Explore further © 2015 Phys.org The strange case of the missing dwarf A Dyson Sphere with 1 AU radius in Sol system. Credit: arXiv:1503.04376 [physics.pop-ph] The popularization of the idea for a Dyson sphere came about when physicist Freeman Dyson published a paper back in the 60’s outlining the idea of an advanced civilization building a sphere around a star to capture its energy for its own use. The idea has been popularized in science fiction and has grabbed the attention of real life researchers who suggest that if a Dyson sphere could be detected, it would present strong evidence for the existence of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization of some sort.Over time, Dyson and other scientists have found that the massive amount of material needed to build such a sphere would be untenable, thus, a more likely scenario would be a civilization building a ring of energy capturing satellites which could be continually expanded.But the notion of the sphere persists and so some scientists continue to look for one, believing that if such a sphere were built, the process of capturing the energy from the interior sun would cause an unmistakable infrared signature, allowing us to notice its presence. But thus far, no such signatures have been found. That might be because we are alone in the universe, or, as Semiz and Oğur argue, it might be because we are looking at the wrong types of stars. They suggest that it would seem to make more sense for an advanced civilization to build their sphere around a white dwarf, rather than a star that is in its main sequence, such as our sun—not only would the sphere be smaller (they have even calculated an estimate for a sphere just one meter thick—1023 kilograms of matter) but the gravity at its surface would be similar to their home planet (assuming it were similar to ours).Unfortunately, if Semiz and Oğur are right, we may not be able to prove it for many years, as the luminosity of a white dwarf is much less than other stars, making it extremely difficult to determine if the infrared signal is natural, or if it has been altered by aliens. More information: Dyson Spheres around White Dwarfs, arXiv:1503.04376 [physics.pop-ph] arxiv.org/abs/1503.04376AbstractA Dyson Sphere is a hypothetical structure that an advanced civilization might build around a star to intercept all of the star’s light for its energy needs. One usually thinks of it as a spherical shell about one astronomical unit (AU) in radius, and surrounding a more or less Sun-like star; and might be detectable as an infrared point source. We point out that Dyson Spheres could also be built around white dwarfs. This type would avoid the need for artificial gravity technology, in contrast to the AU-scale Dyson Spheres. In fact, we show that parameters can be found to build Dyson Spheres suitable —temperature- and gravity-wise— for human habitation. This type would be much harder to detect.via TechnologyReviewcenter_img Journal information: arXiv (Phys.org)—A pair of Turkish space scientists with Bogazici University has proposed that researchers looking for the existence of Dyson spheres might be looking at the wrong objects. İbrahim Semiz and Salim Oğur have written a paper and uploaded it to the preprint server arXiv, in which they suggest that if an advanced civilization were to build a Dyson sphere, it would make the most sense to build it around a white dwarf.

Glowing sea turtle like red and green spaceship spotted

first_img © 2015 Phys.org Dozens of fish and shark species do it; the turtle came as a surprise. These animals light up due to unique structures in their skin which enable them to biofluoresce, said Lee. The definition is given as “the ability to reflect the blue light hitting a surface and re-emit it as a different color,” such as green, red or orange.Lee wrote that “the marine biologist captured the turtle sighting on a video camera system, whose only artificial illumination was a blue light that matched the blue light of the surrounding ocean. A yellow filter on the camera allowed the scientists to pick up fluorescing organisms.”According to National Geographic, the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle is the first reptile scientists have seen exhibiting biofluorescence. According to Mongabay, David Gruber, a marine molecular biologist at City University of New York, said he made the discovery mostly by accident while filming biofluorescent coral off the Solomon Islands coast —the glowing sea turtle swam right by him.Gruber’s encounter was recorded in a video, showing when he saw the turtle. “Scientists have only tuned in to bioflourescence in the last ten years and as soon as we started tuning into it we found it everywhere.”He compared the sight of the glowing sea turtle to “a bright red and green spaceship, underneath my camera.” The turtle was very calm and appeared to “hang” out with Gruber and team.One point about bioflourescence in general is that these creatures are using light in a way we do not see. “It’s a hidden world that we’re just now beginning to tune into,” Gruber, said in an earlier National Geographic interview.Why would the sea turtle have developed biofluorescence? It’s too early to say for sure. The sea turtle was glowing neon green and red. The discovery nonetheless turns up questions in search of answers. Why do the turtles have this feature? How are they using this feature? “We know that the sea turtle has really good vision,” commented Gruber,” and they go on long and arduous migrations.” Are they using this feature to find each other? To attract each other? Still other questions as noted in the National Geographic article which Gruber wants to explore: can these turtles see the biofluorescence; do they take in compounds from their food that let them fluoresce, or do they make their own compounds? Another noteworthy point about these sea turtles: they are critically endangered. Quoted in National Geographic, Gruber said, “It’d be fairly difficult to study this turtle because there are so few left and they’re so protected.” Their population numbers have declined by almost 90 percent in recent decades. Hawksbill sea turtles are in turn one of the rarest species on our planet, he said, and the animals remain a mystery.

Synthesis and characterization of encapsulated single HF molecule

first_img Journal information: Nature Chemistry (Phys.org)—Molecules are rarely found alone. In the real world, they are often networked to each other through hydrogen bonding or are bound to other molecules in the surrounding environment. One way to study an individual molecule is to trap it within a fullerene. A fullerene is an all-carbon, spherical molecule with carbons networked like the stitches of a soccer ball. The interior of the fullerene sphere is large enough to house small molecules, such as water or hydrogen gas. More information: Andrea Krachmalnicoff et al. The dipolar endofullerene HF@C60, Nature Chemistry (2016). DOI: 10.1038/nchem.2563AbstractThe cavity inside fullerenes provides a unique environment for the study of isolated atoms and molecules. We report the encapsulation of hydrogen fluoride inside C60 using molecular surgery to give the endohedral fullerene HF@C60. The key synthetic step is the closure of the open fullerene cage with the escape of HF minimized. The encapsulated HF molecule moves freely inside the cage and exhibits quantization of its translational and rotational degrees of freedom, as revealed by inelastic neutron scattering and infrared spectroscopy. The rotational and vibrational constants of the encapsulated HF molecules were found to be redshifted relative to free HF. The NMR spectra display a large 1H–19F J coupling typical of an isolated species. The dipole moment of HF@C60 was estimated from the temperature dependence of the dielectric constant at cryogenic temperatures and showed that the cage shields around 75% of the HF dipole.

The content is provided for information purposes only. In a recent study, Andrea Krachmalnicoff, et al. from the University of Southampton, the University of Nottingham, and Institutions in France and Estonia have trapped hydrogen fluoride in the cavity of a C60 fullerene (HF@C60). Their characterization studies reveal that HF breaks the fullerene’s icosahedral symmetry and that the fullerene cage serves to shield the strongly polar molecule. Their work appears in Nature Chemistry.Researchers have been able to trap molecules within the fullerene cavity using a process called “molecular surgery.” As the name implies, the fullerene molecules is chemically “cut open” and a small molecule is forced into the spherical cavity. The hole is then chemically “sutured.”Previous research by this group demonstrated the successful encapsulation of HF in an open-cage fullerene; however attempts to suture the open-cage resulted in the HF molecule escaping. The current study reports the successful encapsulation of HF by reacting their open-cage product with PPh(Fu)2 ([2-furanyl] phenylphosphine] in the presence of molecular sieves at room temperature. They obtained the pre-cursor product that can be sutured using methods employed in the synthesis H2O@C60 (i.e., reduction with triisopropylphosphite followed by reaction with N-phenyl-maleimide).X-ray studies of HF@C60 indicated some distortion of the fullerene cage but because the distortions were not outside of standard deviation values, the results were inconclusive. UV and electrochemical studies, however, did show that the HF molecule does not seem to show an electrostatic interaction with the C60 cage.NMR studies using 1H, 13C, and 19F NMR as well as solid state 1H and 13C NMR provided more compelling information on the behavior of HF. The J coupling for 1H-19F confirm that there is a single molecule of HF within the C60 cavity.Krachmalnicoff, et al. then used inelastic neutron scattering and infrared absorption at low temperature to gain insight into the molecule’s intrinsic properties. Their findings provide evidence that HF’s rotational, vibrational, and translational motion is quantized with all transitions originating from the ground state. These studies showed that in the solid state, HF interact with the C60 molecule both by breaking its icosahedral symmetry and through dipole interactions with the interior of the cage.Hydrogen fluoride has a large dipole moment. Using capacitance studies to find the dielectric constant at low temperatures, Krachmalnicoff, et al. found that C60 shields the dipole such that the dipole moment for encapsulated HF is about 25% of the calculated dipole moment for HF.Overall, this research provides some interesting information on the properties of a single-molecule HF. Additional studies are needed to investigate why HF@C60 breaks the endofullerene’s icosahedral symmetry in the solid state as well as further investigation into HF@C60’s electronic properties.center_img Synthesis of HF@C60 from HF@1.

It is because of last 20/25 years that the railways has come to this pass,” he said, without naming anybody.“I am not blaming anybody for this. Whatever problems we will try to solve these,” he added. Emphasising on the drastic need for improvement in the railways, he said, “Improvement in customer service, safety upgradation, and modernisation of rail infrastructure is the need of the hour and these require money.”  He further said there are two sources of getting additional funds. “One is passenger fare, the other is gross budgetary support (GBS).” Prabhu, considered to be pro-reform said, “We need additional resources to improve customer service. Freight tariff is already high. Passengers will happily pay more if we improve service.”  On attracting private investment, the Railway Minister said a new model is being worked out for development of stations with private participation. “It is in the final stage and we will take it to the Cabinet for its approval before launching the model for private players.” He said there is also a remendous scope in earning more from the advertising in rail premises. “We can earn Rs 10,000 crore from advertising alone. The scope and benefit for advertisers in railways are much more than other areas as there is a larger captive audience for longer hours.”last_img read more

A satirical dig at society

first_imgIntrospective and satirical works that question a farmer’s diminishing importance in society form the crux of artist Akshay Raj Singh Rathore’s first solo show that he has titled Impotent Rage.In the exhibition of mixed media installations at Gallery Espace art gallery here, the 36-year-old visual artist who hails from a landed zamindari family of Vidisha in Madhya Pradesh turns his gaze inwards.“I grew up in an atmosphere dominated by upper caste politics and witnessed deterioration of rural social structure. Also, many other influences made me aware of forces and issues at stake within contemporary societies,” says Rathore who holds a bachelors in Applied Arts from Baroda University. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In the year 2009 the artist was part of Soil Bite, a Khoj International Artists’ Association workshop held in Patna, which explored ties between nature and humans.In the year 2010, Rathore attended the Sandarbh Residency in Partapur in Rajasthan, where his performative work asked people to leave their footprints on a disputed street being claimed by two religious communities. His work questioned land ownership and its ramifications.In his next residency in El Salavador in 2011, he witnessed a struggle over ‘fertile land’. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“This show is a culmination, in a way, of all those experiences. It is a not a single-themed show.

It’s textural – it’s about the earth we inhabit and how we consider poor farmers to be uncivilized though they are the ones who are reason of the land’s fertility,” says Rathore. Obituary is a portrait of farmer Tikaram, standing alone, staring at a wall of seeds from his farm.“Tikaram, a 70-year-old belongs to a group of farmers who had mastered the best technique of utilising land fertility. He still does all his farming alone and maintains an ethos of bio-diversity and organic produce on his farm. The work is a tribute to the death of this sort of wise farming,” says Rathore. Accompanying the drawing of the farmer are sets of photos of seeds taken at Tikaram’s garden and the unique metamorphosis processes, following natural rhythms.“Now there is no control of a farmer over seeds, diversity and fertility, more so with the advent of new innovative trends, genetically modified seeds and the entire concept of scientific control over life,” says the artist.Food In Hand is a series of photographs of scooping out food grains taken at various local mandis and regional haats.The collection is a visual journey through weekly markets in rural India exploring the diversity of food they offer.“With the rise in packaged food, we have lost sensation of touching, smelling and ‘feeling’ what we eat. Packaging has rendered our diversity meaningless,” says the artist.His work Impotent Range is an installation of paintings, drawings, photographs, text and found material.last_img read more

Water may help you curb appetite

first_imgLooking for ways to shed those extra kilos around your waistline? Worry not, according to a study, drinking water along with a meal can fill the stomach and signal the brain to stop eating.The findings showed that the brain listens to the stomach during eating. Drinking more water can alter messages from the stomach which can be interpreted as fullness by the brain. Further, intake of water along with a meal can increase stomach distension, curb appetite in the short term as well as increase the regional brain activity. This means anyone who is looking to lose weight or cut down on eating would benefit from a large drink with their meals. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’For the study, the team collected data from 19 participants during two separate sessions with different consumption procedures. In the experiment, participants drank a milk-shake on an empty stomach, which was followed by a small (50 mL) or large glass of water (350 mL). The large glass of water doubled the content in the stomach compared to the small glass. Those who drank the large glass also felt less hungry and felt fuller. The real time data of the brain, the stomach, and people’s feelings of satiety was measured simultaneously during the meal.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixMagnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) images were used to see how the different amounts of water affected stretching of the stomach– the large glass of water doubled the stomach content as compared to the small glass. “Combining these types of measurements is difficult, because MRI scanners are usually set-up to perform only one type of scan,” said lead author Guido Camps from Wageningen University in the Netherlands. “We’ve been able to very quickly switch the scanner from one functionality to another to do this type of research,” Camps added.last_img read more

Its raining noodles

first_imgThe Spice Route offers an exclusive dining experience in a stunning backdrop. As you enter the courtyard, with its beautiful appearance, the ambience will instantly transport you to Southeast Asia – a picture perfect location accompanied by gentle music.Chef Veena Arora, Chef De Cuisine, The Spice Route, The Imperial, is all set to take you on a journey of spices around Southeast Asia, with her exotic and tempting brand new menu titled ‘Noodle Symphony.’ Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe recipes from the exclusive noodle menu comes with a twist to the traditional ones conjured up by the veteran Chef. When you swoop in a mouthful of the ‘Chef’s Special’ noodles, the thin and light cellophane noodles with cherry tomatoes and scrambled eggs takes you on a mind trip to Thailand. The chef advices that one must eat noodles as soon as they are served since the taste wears off and it might become slightly soggy when cold. Chef Veena had experimented with the traditional Kieow Tieow Naam with chicken and Thai style wontons making it both healthy and tasty for her guests. She did not forget her vegetarian guests in the process, as she says, “To cater to my vegetarian guests and make the menu equally desirable to meat lovers, I have added vegan meat in all the vegetarian recipes, made with konjac and soya.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveA noted advantage for vegetarians is the addition of mock meat in the noodles. “Vegan eaters often complain about the less variety in their noodles. Since it has mostly vegetables, they do not get to taste the variants in non-vegetarian noodle dishes. Therefore, to provide some more elements and give them a close taste of meat, I added mock meat. Initially, I used soya nuggets, but here in India, I do not like the smell they add to the noodles,” describes the Chef De Cuisine. One of the most outstanding dishes in the menu is Sen Krob – wok fried crispy noodle with vegetables in Thai light soya sauce. The ideal crisps blend in well with the vegetables and give you the much desired flavourful crunch in every bite making you crave for more. Another mention worthy meal is Kieow Tieow Kheow Waan – Thai rice noodles wok fried with green curry paste and bamboo shoots.

Colin Dallas getting 25 points at Pittsburgh this weekend is a Vegas

first_imgIt only happens once or twice each NFL season. Vegas releases a betting line so enticing it looks like it must be a mistake. 4-4 Pittsburgh giving 2.5 points at home against 7-1 Dallas this weekend is one of those games.At first glance, Dallas getting points against struggling Pittsburgh looks like a gift. The Steelers just dropped their third straight, and Big Ben is only one game removed from returning from a knee injury. Meanwhile, Dallas is steamrolling through the NFL with a 7-1 record. So, what gives with the line?Today in the Herd, Colin said the public is heavy on the Cowboys, which means the smart money is headed in the other direction. It’s a trap.“Dallas is getting 90% of the consumers’ money. Whenever that number goes above 80, wiseguys go the other way. There may not be another game this year where more people have bet on one side.” Advertisement Vegas insiders see the game is a must win home game for Big Ben and the Steelers, who should be able to exploit an injured Dallas secondary, which has allowed its last four opponents to complete over 70% of their passes.The sharps are on Pittsburgh, the squares are gobbling up the Cowboys. Don’t be a mark, follow the smart money, and thank Uncle Colin.Don’t be shocked if the Steelers beat the Cowboys on Sunday. pic.twitter.com/UiDI7mZxAx— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) November 9, 2016last_img read more

Colins 2018 NFL Mock Draft 70

first_img10. Raiders: Derwin James, S, Florida State – Jon Gruden needs impact players on defense and James is an elite athlete and playmaker that can cover or play in the box and lay the wood in the run game. Oakland’s secondary has been atrocious. James helps sure up the back end as Gruden rebuilds.You DON’T want to miss the #NFLDraft tape for former @FSUFootball DB Derwin James. #Noles #FSU pic.twitter.com/5fqChwiePQ— ACC Digital Network (@theACCDN) April 10, 2018 8. Bears: Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame –  The Bears give Mitchell Trubisky some interior line protection with the dominant Nelson. He’s been compared to Cowboys Pro Bowl guard Zach Martin, and will step in and play at a high level immediately. Nelson is a mauler and plays like a throwback. If the Bears are going to turn it around, they need to keep Trubisky off his back. Not a sexy pick, but a solid one.Quenton Nelson (LG #56) is an elite prospect. Blocks like this are why 😳 pic.twitter.com/JQVRte6XM8— J.R. (@JReidDraftScout) January 29, 2018 With the NFL Draft approaching, the pre-draft rumor mill is in overdrive regarding which direction teams are leaning with their picks, Colin tried to separate the truth from the smokescreens and reshuffled his draft order for a seventh time. His seventh mock reflects the most recent developments, including Cleveland taking a quarterback not named Sam Darnold.Here’s Colin’s Top 10, 7.0:Browns: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming – Colin has had the Browns taking Sam Darnold since his first mock – he still thinks he’s the best option – but one of his NFL sources confirmed reports that new GM John Dorsey is heavily considering Josh Allen with the pick, so he made the change. Allen’s big frame and huge arm are a perfect fit for the nasty second half AFC North weather conditions, but he’s still a sub 60% completion percentage college quarterback, which is a huge red flag. Allen is boom or bust, but the Browns take the leap.Amazing stuff from Josh Allen at the NFL Combine. Has looked the best out of the first group. Baker, Rudolph and Rosen are in the second group. pic.twitter.com/sjxQbHeEor— Buffalo Sports Talk (@BUFSportsTalk) March 3, 2018 7. Bucs: Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama – Colin still thinks Fitzpatrick is too good for the Bucs to pass up at 7. Tampa needs secondary help and Fitzpatrick is the prototype hybrid DB that can play safety or cover the slot. He provides attitude and leadership to a Tampa D that’s been average. Many say he’s the safest pick in the draft. Day 1 starter.Minkah is a God. pic.twitter.com/2Ul4FAaqqN— The Mick Nartin™ (@themicknartin) February 11, 2018 3. Jets (From Colts): Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA – The Jets moved up to the third spot to draft a quarterback and come away with the best pure passer in the draft. There are more questions about Rosen’s durability and personality than there are about his ability. He’s ready to play right away, but he’ll have to avoid stepping into New York media landmines with his mouth. He and Darnold continue their cross-town rivalry on the other coast.Josh Rosen with a Dan Marino FAKE SPIKE pic.twitter.com/3aSY26m3m2— Eric Elizondo (@EricElizondo8) September 4, 2017 5. Broncos: Denzel Ward, DB, Ohio State –  John Elway could go any number of directions with this pick, but elects to replace the departed Aqib Talib with the draft’s best corner in Ward. He ran a 4.32 40-yard dash at the combine, is an elite athlete, a sure tackler and immediately fills a huge need for Denver.Does Denzel Ward get docked for doing this? pic.twitter.com/MwXUEY6Fk7— Marcus Chai (@OaklandScout) February 1, 2018 6. Bills (From Colts) : Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma – With the other top quarterback prospects off the board, Buffalo trades into the Colts slot to grab Baker Mayfield. Colin has been critical of Mayfield for maturity issues, but he’s accurate and is one of three rookie QB’s that can play right away. Colin thinks Mayfield’s lack of size and arm strength are a bad fit for the winter conditions in Buffalo.Showing off the arm!! @bakermayfield feeling good throwing deep balls to his guys on @OU_Football Pro Day #Sooners #proday #OUDNA pic.twitter.com/Y7S4NxDdmf— Sooner Sports TV (@SoonerSportsTV) March 14, 2018center_img 4. Browns (From Houston): Bradley Chubb, DE, N.C. State – With their quarterback in the fold, the Browns take explosive edge rusher Chubb to pair with last year’s #1 pick Myles Garrett. Quality NFL pass rushers are hard to find, and Chubb is a special one. Cleveland will be getting plenty of pressure on opposing QB’s with their new dynamic duo.Whew. Bradley Chubb speed rush 🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/hQSudmbtD0— Billy Marshall (@BillyM_91) February 18, 2018 2. Giants: Sam Darnold, QB, USC – Reports through the pre-draft process have indicated that the Giants will pass on a QB here, but with Darnold falling in their lap they can’t pass him up. Darnold has the least bust potential of any of the quarterbacks, all the intangibles teams look for in a franchise signal caller, and his low key personality can handle the media spotlight. New York gets a successor to Eli and a potential star to match up with Carson Wentz in the division.Non mais quelle fin de match ! QB Sam Darnold pour WR Deontay Burnett. TD Trojans !USC 24, Texas 17 OTpic.twitter.com/R1jDYdnOhe— TBP College Football (@thebluepennant) September 17, 2017 9. Niners: Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State – GM John Lynch needs playmakers and grabs the biggest home run hitter in the draft for Jimmy G and Kyle Shanahan. Colin doesn’t think Barkley is a 20+ carry-a-game NFL back, but Shanahan will get him the ball in a variety of ways in what will be an explosive offense. Perfect marriage of player and scheme.

OBJs Hurt Too Much To Be An AllTime Great

first_imgOBJ’s hurt too much to be an all-time greatOdell Beckahm is reportedly dealing with a hip injury that’s reportedly not too serious, but given his long injury history, there’s no telling if it will have an impact beyond the preseason.Colin thinks Odell has all-time great talent, but he gets hurt too often to put together the all-time great career he likes to forecast for himself. Colin sees Jarvis Landry ending up with more catches than Beckham because he’s talented, but more so because he’s durable and always available. Beckham is great when he’s healthy, but when is that? He’s like a new Lambo that’s always in the shop.

How an OldSchool Handyman Used an App to Repair His Business

first_img 3 min read Handyman Ramon “Ray” Gonzales III admits he was living up to his profession’s negative reputation: archaic business practices and scattershot reliability. Six months after launching Hey Ray Handyman in Nashville, Tenn., he was falling behind on trafficking and tracking invoices and estimates, communicating with clients and collecting payments. And he was showing up late for appointments. His makeshift mobile office—consisting of a dog-eared appointment calendar and loose-leaf notebook—wasn’t cutting it. “The way I was running my business was really old-fashioned, and I was losing a lot because of it,” Gonzales says. The fixSearching for a mobile app that could help, Gonzales discovered Breezeworks, an iOS and Android micro-business organizing program. For a monthly fee of $20, the app helps mobile solopreneurs, small-business operators and franchisees (up to 20 users) manage scheduling, appointments, client and internal communications, invoicing, payment processing and bid and job status. In other words, it puts the stuff that all service professionals—from plumbers to photographers to landscapers—see as necessary evils into the one tool that never leaves their side: their phone. The resultsGonzales knew he was onto something good when he received an alert from Breezeworks telling him he needed to be at a job in 45 minutes, and that given current traffic conditions it would take him 32 minutes to get there. “I arrived 10 minutes early, and the guy told me, ‘You’re my handyman from now on,’” he recalls.Admittedly tech-challenged, Gonzales says it took him less than an hour to get up and running on Breezeworks, and only a few days to get comfortable using the program. “It has saved me a lot of stress with handling appointments alone,” he says. “It has literally saved me hours, even days, of work a week with my receipts, my invoicing and my books. It keeps me organized and gives a professional front to my brand that I think really sets me apart from the competition.” A second opinionWith its ability to coordinate, automate and track essential business functions and customer touchpoints in a timely, professional fashion, all via smartphone, a mobile platform like Breezeworks provides an immediate competitive advantage in fields that are “always way behind the [technology] curve,” says Paul Sanneman, founder of Dream Business Coaching in Novato, Calif. Sanneman, who consults with construction contractors as well as other service professionals, believes the hardest part about Breezeworks is getting the tech-averse to change their behavior and actually use it. “If you’re in an industry that’s slow to adopt technology,” he says, “you can leap ahead of the competition for very little money, just by being an early adopter.”  March 26, 2015 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Firefox 53 exclusive content process for local files

first_imgFirefox 53: exclusive content process for local files by Martin Brinkmann on November 27, 2016 in Firefox – 21 commentsMozilla enabled a new security feature in Firefox 53 recently that moves local file access to a new content process in the browser.Firefox’s new multi-process architecture Electrolysis is making big leaps. Mozilla started to roll out the new architecture in Firefox 48 Stable. While the roll out is still on going, Mozilla is already planning ahead in Firefox Nightly, the cutting edge development version of the web browser.The stable versions of Firefox that have the multi-process architecture enabled by default use one content process only currently.This means that the browser is using two processes: one content and one for the browser core. Users who use NPAPI plugins may see a third container for plugin content.Firefox 53: Content Process for local file accessFirefox Nightly on top of that uses a process for GPU tasks powered by the browser’s new Quantum Compositor technology.Plans are underway to enable a second content process in Nightly for instance.The improvement in Firefox 53 Nightly adds another new content process to Firefox that is only created when local files are accessed.Any request to access local files using the file:// protocol uses an exclusive process for that request starting in Firefox 53 provided that the multi-process architecture is enabled.The main reason for doing so is security. Mozilla notes that moving local file requests to their own process would block compromised Firefox processes from accessing local files.The new local file access content process has only read access on the system Firefox is run on on top of that.If we only have file:// URLs processed is a separate content process, then a compromised normal content process would not be able to use them to read files.The file:// URL content process, would have read only permissions.The new security feature is already enabled on Firefox 53 Nightly. It is not clear yet if it will land in Firefox 53 Stable.The new feature is controlled by a a Boolean preference.Type about:config in the Firefox address bar and hit the Enter-key afterwards.Confirm that you will be careful.Search for browser.tabs.remote.separateFileUriProcess.Set the preference to true (default) to enable the new content process for local file access, or set it to false to disable it.You can check out the Bugzilla@Mozilla listing to read up on the development of the feature. (via Sören Hentzschel)Closing WordsMoving file access processes to their own content process makes sense from a security point of view. Since this process is only launched when file:// requests are made, and killed when the request end, it should have little to no impact on the browser from a performance point of view.Now You: Do you run a browser with multi-process architecture?SummaryArticle NameFirefox 53: exclusive content process for local filesDescriptionMozilla enabled a new security feature in Firefox 53 recently that moves local file access to a new content process in the browser.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

How to fix Memory Management Bluescreens on Windows 10

first_imgHow to fix Memory Management Bluescreens on Windows 10 by Martin Brinkmann on October 20, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 2 commentsWhen I tried to install the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 4 device using Windows Update, I was greeted with a “Your PC ran into a problem” bluescreen message highlighting the stop code Memory Management.The error happened during the installation of a feature update, but reports on the Internet suggest that it may also happen on boot, installation of minor updates, or while the PC is in use.The full message on the bluescreen read:Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We’re just collecting some error info, and then we’ll restart for you.If you call a support person, give them this info: Stop Code Memory ManagementGood news is that the error message hints at the problem (something memory related caused the issue); bad news is that there is no “do this” fix to correct the issue as it may have multiple causes.Fix Memory Management Bluescreens on Windows 10The first thing that you may want to do is create a backup of your system. This is a precaution and ensures that you still have access to your data if the machine dies or something unexpected happens.If you can boot into the Windows 10 environment do so afterwards. If you cannot, try booting into Safe Mode on Windows 10 instead.Note: Many “help” sites out there suggest that you run a “repair” tool to fix the issue. This is an advertisement for the program, and you will have to buy the program to fix any issues that it finds. These programs don’t fix serious issues usually.Step 1: Run Memory DiagnosticsThe computer’s memory may have caused the memory management bluescreen on the device. Since this is all the information we have at the point, it makes sense to run memory diagnostics to make sure memory is not defect.Note: Memory Diagnostics needs to run when Windows starts. You are prompted to restart right away, or run the diagnostics module on the next start of the computer.Tap on the Windows-key, type Control Panel, and select the item when it is displayed.Switch the “view by” mode at the top right corner to “small icons”.Select Administrative Tools from the list of control panel applets.Start Windows Memory Diagnostic when the Administrative Tools window opens.Select whether you want to restart the Windows machine right then and there, or run Memory Diagnostics on the next start of the system instead.Tip: You can run a third-party tool like MemTest64 or MemTest86+.Here is a quick video that demonstrates how to run the built-in Windows tool to fix Memory Management Error 0X0000001A in Safe Mode.Step 2: Scan for corrupt Windows files and hard drive issuesOpen an elevated command prompt. Press the Windows-key, type cmd.exe, hold down the Ctrl-key and Shift-key, and hit the Enter-key on the keyboard.Type the command sfc /scannow as shown on the screenshot above.Windows checks core files of the operating system to make sure they are not corrupt or missing. The process takes a couple of minutes to complete.If you get “Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations”, everything is fine and you can move on. If integrity violations were discovered, you may have found the issue that caused the memory management bluescreen.Once you are done with that, run chkdsk C: f\ afterwards to check the primary hard drive of the computer for errors.Step 3:Smaller things you may want to try:If you experience memory management bluescreens during operations, make sure your PC is up to date. Use Windows-I to open the Settings application, and select Windows & Security > Windows Update to run a check for updates.Also, check the recently installed software or updates listing. If the bluescreen messages coincide with the installation of software or updates, try removing those to see if that fixes the issue.Make sure the PC is not overclocked or underclocked. You need to check the BIOS / UEFI for that. How you get there depends on the manufacturer and make of the BIOS / UEFI. On the Surface, hold down Volume UP while you hit the Power button. The Surface has no overclocking settings though, but many desktop motherboards have. Some tools may also enable overclocking functionality, make sure you run those and reset the values to their factory defaults.If your PC has multiple RAM units, try removing some of them to test if it makes a difference, or moving them to different slots.Remove any hardware that is not required if you update Windows, for instance a 56K modem using Device Manager.Run a full scan for malware. You can use Windows Defender for that, or a third-party solution like Malwarebytes.Step 4: How I fixed the issue on my Surface Pro 4My Surface Pro 4 threw the memory management error when I tried to upgrade to the Fall Creators Update. It did not matter how I tried to update: Windows Update and running the update from a bootable USB Flash drive ended in the error being displayed on the screen, and the earlier version of the operating system being restored.I ran memory diagnostics and other check ups, and nothing came out of it. I made the decision then to clean install Windows instead.The downside to this was that I would lose access to all files and programs installed on the device if the operation would complete successfully. I created a backup of the system to store the files safely, and started the process.Download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft to get started.Follow the on-screen prompts to create installation media on a USB Flash Drive (or DVD if you prefer that).Boot the PC you want to upgrade using the installation media.Make sure you select to do a clean install and proceed with the installation.The clean installation worked in my case, the Surface was not throwing any memory management errors during installation, and booted into the Windows 10 desktop just fine afterwards.I had to copy my files back to the device afterwards, and install the software that I wanted to use on it as all of that was gone due to the clean install of the operating system.Closing WordsThe memory management bluescreen does not necessarily mean that the memory or the memory banks of the computer are damaged. While that is certainly a possibility, it can also be caused by software or drivers, and other things that are easier to fix.Now You: How do you handle bluescreen errors?SummaryArticle NameHow to fix Memory Management Bluescreens on Windows 10DescriptionFind out how to fix the memory management bluescreen error that Windows machines may throw when you update the operating system, or use it.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
