Well said that the ‘contemporary society is nothing but a technology juggernaut’ and the phenomena is driven and shouldered by engineers. While other technological inventions may have had already been developed prior to the foundation of science, “technology” is not yet a proper term for such. The word technology, after all, is always correlated with science and both science and technology are mutually inclusive to one another, strictly speaking in terminologies. Computers of today, however advanced they may seem, have had its origins in humble beginnings. Socializing: People access the Internet to socialise and to connect with other people with similar interests. The rise of social media has played a big role in making the Internet more popular than ever. Using the new technique, a neuroscientist can order a design which the engineering team can transform into a computer model which feeds instructions to the printer. The printer then applies … Read the rest

Streaming TV should be easy, but fights among Roku, Amazon, HBO, and NBC are making it hard.

When Wonder Woman 1984 opens in theaters on Christmas Day, most HBO Max subscribers will be able to watch the movie at home. Emphasis on most: Right now, that group of HBO Max subscribers does not include those who use a Roku device to watch streaming TV.

This is because Roku, which dominates the US market for streaming devices, and AT&T’s WarnerMedia, which owns HBO Max, don’t have a deal to put the new service on Roku’s streaming boxes, sticks, and TVs. If the two companies don’t get a deal done soon, it’s unlikely they’ll have anything in place for the holiday season, according to people who work at both companies.… Read the rest

A disturbing mass grave of 20 skeletons has been unearthed in the Netherlands.

The bodies were found in Vianen by city workers excavating a moat. The majority of the remains belonged to young men aged between 15 and 30.

It’s believed there could be more in the area and experts estimate those inside lived between the late Middle Ages and the 18th century.

At first, workers only found nine skeletons last Friday. But when they returned to the site on Monday, they found eleven more.

Alderman Christa Hendriksen, one of the archaeologists, said she was ‘surprised’ by the discovery and even more that the bodies had been stacked, according to Teller Report.

The design has remained similar to the previous-gen model — no iPad Pro-style redesign here like in the new

Advanced Engineering Mathematics Book for III semester students. Sensors are specialized electronic devices that detect changes in quantities such as temperature , electrical power levels, chemical concentrations, physical position, fluid flow, or mechanical properties like velocity or acceleration When a sensor responds to change, it usually requires a transducer to convert the quantity the sensor has measured into electrical signals that are translated into printouts, electronic readouts, recordings, or information that is returned to the device to control the change measured. Specialized resistors and capacitors are sometimes used as combined sensors and transducers. Variable resistors respond to mechanical motions by changing them to electrical signals. The thermistor varies its resistance with temperature; a thermocouple also measures temperature changes in the form of small voltages as temperatures are measured at two different junctions on the thermocouple. Usually, sensors produce weak electronic signals, and added circuits amplify these. But sensors can be … Read the rest

Lisa Long is immunosuppressed and suffers from chronic pain. That means that since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in the US in March, she and her family, which includes her two daughters, 11 and 14, have been isolating at home outside St. Louis, save for the occasional doctor’s visit. Visiting family is out of the question for Thanksgiving.

But Long will get to be with her nieces and nephews in Utah and Colorado on Thursday. She’ll sit down to dinner with them on Bloxburg, a simulation game on the popular children’s video-gaming platform Roblox. For months, Long has been working with her daughters and their cousins to build a house on Bloxburg, and those efforts will lead to a “Bloxburg Thanksgiving,” as Long puts it.

“We’re going to try to get together to make turkeys and set big tables,” she says. “We’re going to try to get as many … Read the rest

Parler is attracting the posts that Twitter and Facebook don’t allow, like hate speech and conspiracy theories about the US election. | Olivier Douliery/AFP via Getty Images

Conservatives are flocking to a site where they can post things that Facebook and Twitter don’t allow.

Open Sourced logo

In recent weeks, you may have been hearing more about a site called Parler, which conservatives are touting as an alternative to Twitter and Facebook. From Ivanka Trump to the governor of Nebraska, right-wing influencers are asking those frustrated with alleged Big Tech censorship to join them on Parler, a two-year-old app and website that promises free speech online. It’s social media — minus the curation algorithms and content moderation.

Parler, which has been around since 2018, looks at first glance a lot like Twitter and Facebook. Open the app, there are profiles pushing doubt about the 2020 election’s results and declarations that the mainstream … Read the rest

BlueGriffon is a free WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor powered by Gecko, the rendering engine inside Firefox. Soy is generally considered a health food, but some people are allergic to soy and experience symptoms such as tingling in the mouth, hives, itchy skin, swelling, wheezing, stomach pain, diarrhea and flushing. In rare cases, a person allergic to soy can have a fatal reaction, called anaphylaxis. Now, researchers from Hierlemann’s group at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zurich in Basel, together with Urs Frey and his colleagues from the ETH spin-off MaxWell Biosystems, developed a new generation of microelectrode-array chips. These chips enable detailed recordings of considerably more electrodes than previous systems, which opens up new applications.

A mysterious discovery has been made in the Utah desert over in the United States.

A gleaming twelve-foot tall metal monolith with no clear markings was spotted by a wildlife resources workers from a circling helicopter.

The crew went in for a closer look and found the metal object had been firmly planted in the dirt.

There were no labels on it, or any other information to suggest where it may have come from.

Could it finally be proof of alien visitors? Or an artistic endevour from someone who’s a fan of … Read the rest
