A 12-year-old has taken on the most damaging honey bee parasite in the world to win the NIWA Waikato Science and Technology Fair.He compared the use of oxalic acid via cardboard strips and vaporisation on several beehives to determine which method was the most effective.
If you have the app and you know your partner’s going to be passing a Coffee Haus, you can buy them a coffee, and the robot will text them.
Ural's flight 178 has already been dubbed the “Miracle on the Ramenskoe,” for the part of Moscow where the plane came down—echoing the 2009 “Miracle on the Hudson,” when a US Airways Airbus A320 lost both engines after taking off from LaGuardia Airport in New York City and landed safely on the river nearby .Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and Jeffrey Skiles were at about 2,800 feet when a flock of geese wiped out their power.
And it would have gone entirely unnoticed by faraway humans if it weren’t for the assistance of a company called Vaisala, which operates the sensor network and uses it to triangulate a lightning strike, feeding the data to outfits like the National Weather Service.
Deel says the company plans to use HIAD technology and helicopter recovery to catch the powerful BE-4 engines from its next generation Vulcan Centaur rocket as soon as 2024.So far, SpaceX remains the only rocket company to have successfully recovered and reflown a booster from an orbital rocket.
And then, pow pow, Biles is in the air, a möbius loop of motion 10 feet off the ground at the apex, more than a second in the air, twisting around her head-to-toe axis three times and flipping over her side-to-side axis twice before, bang!
Matt Simon covers cannabis, robots, and climate science for WIRED.Weirder still, on top of there typically being not enough heat to form deep convective clouds in the Arctic, there’s also a limit to how high these things can build up into the atmosphere.
Once she's in the air, Simone's center of mass will move along with a constant speed—with the same horizontal velocity at which she was running before the jump.A twist is a rotation of the human body about an axis that runs from head to feet.
If a leading candidate for mayor gets his way, residents of Salt Lake City may soon be able to drop their transit cards from their wallets, purses, and pockets, Former state senator Jim Dabakis wants to eliminate fares on the six-county Utah Transit Authority network of buses and light rail.
This change in momentum of the air produces a force on the ball in the other direction. The magnitude of the force depends on the velocity, the angular velocity, the area of the ball, the density of air and a Magnus coefficient (CM).
The touchless phone-gestures of the future are here, the Capital One hacker didn't cover her tracks, and we've got some suggestions for cleaning up your air.
Now, if we put this vertical acceleration together with the fixed horizontal velocity , we get something special, called projectile motion. On the next jump, I get a vertical acceleration of –6.074, which is closer, but you can see that the fit is pretty janky.
For now, they’re looking back in time, working to see how accurately their model captures heat waves globally and in the various seasons, and whether it accurately represents the high and low pressure systems created by the MJO.In North America, says Julie Caron, an associate scientist at the center’s Climate and Global Dynamics Lab, the oscillation causes high-pressure systems that block the movement of cooler air from the Arctic or the Pacific Ocean.
Manufacturers can’t void the warranty on product just because the consumer went and repaired it themselves, swapped parts, or had it fixed by a third party.
Carrying improvements like seats that swivel between patient-bearing stretchers and enemy-facing machine guns, the Combat Rescue Helicopter could enter service next year. The new Combat Rescue Helicopter, as the Air Force dubs it, comes with a suite of improvements over the HH-60 Pave Hawk it’s replacing, some of them long needed.
He requires only a camera, model cars, and a bit of Photoshop to send muscle cars flying in his new book, The Heights . In the final images, the muscle cars careen above the streets so high they look like they're taking off—or coming in for an impossible landing.
Apple's New MacBook Pro Goes All In on the Touch Bar. The summer is a time for rejuvenation, don’t you think? Apple has now outfitted its least expensive MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar and Touch ID, meaning MBP buyers henceforth must resign themselves to a thin OLED strip at the top row of their keyboards.
Pollution concern also lay in the shadows, says Landrigan, because “all the attention was on climate change.” But several recent efforts have raised pollution’s status on the global agenda, with not just the Lancet report but also the work of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and the World Health Organization’s first global conference on air pollution last year.
And I forget what they were now—a whole bunch of events like this, storms, floods, heat waves,” says Frances Moore, an environmental scientist at UC Davis who earlier this year published a paper on how quickly people forget what’s normal about changes in weather patterns.
This multi-purpose substance also moisturizes the skin while it at the same time repels water, allowing the hippo to stay submerged for long periods of time. For lizards, cold-blooded animals found in often-warm environments, shade is particularly important.
That’s more than double the national standard of 50, with hourly concentrations peaking at 314 micrograms per cubic metre,” says project leader NIWA air quality scientist Dr Ian Longley.
How well a cooler can do this will depend on three key factors: insulation, air, and ice. Open-cell is the type of foam that is used in soft-sided lunch totes and the like, while hard-sided coolers generally contain closed-cell foam in their walls.
Wayfair Walkout, Facebook Data Value, and More News. Tech employees are taking a stand against migrant detention centers; a proposal asking tech companies to disclose the value of your data; and a live reading of the Mueller report.
The fake force allows a rotating reference frame to act like a stationary one. In the non-rotating frame, the ball just moved along with a constant velocity—just as it should with no net forces acting on it.
Space X's Launch Tonight, An Illegal Airbnb Empire, and More News. SpaceX is taking on its most complicated mission yet; an illegal Airbnb ring has been unearthed in New York City; and WIRED wants to free you from streaming subscription hell.
