Environment The world’s first ocean cleaning system will be deployed in 2016

What would have taken humanity 70,000 years to clean with boats and nets can be cleaned, instead, in decades. It’s estimated that a single, 100km cleanup array will clean 42% of the ocean’s plastic in 10 years.  The first array will be deployed in 2016 and technology is underway to recycle the plastic into biofuel.…

Energy Solar as Fastest Growing U.S. Power Source Rivals Shale Boom.

10,000 heads of lettuce in a day, while using 99% less water than an outdoor farm.

The LED fixtures are a key part of the farm’s magic. They allow Shimamura to control the night-and-day cycle and accelerate growth. “What we need to do is not just setting up more days and nights,” he says. “We want to achieve the best combination of photosynthesis during the day and breathing at night by…

John Nash and wife killed in car accident

Especially in taxi’s always wear your seat belt. A dumb event took one of the great minds of our time on Sunday. Nash and his team at Princeton are credited for  breakthroughs that have developed into versatile and robust techniques, which have become essential tools for the study of nonlinear partial differential equations.   http://www.nj.com/middlesex/index.ssf/2015/05/famed_a_beautiful_mind_mathematician_wife_killed_in_taxi_crash_police_say.html

Testing shows that connected cars with autonomous self-driving features can be hacked with in 63 meters by a key fob, cyber security can stop the attack

The pilot project used methods developed by the University of Virginia with the Department of Defense for identifying cyber attacks on the car’s key functions. The team simulated realistic cyber attack scenarios against onboard control systems using the autonomous ground vehicle platform from PRI originally developed for the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge (“Tommy Jr.”). test2…
