Safer sex in practice: 15 risk factors that are not given enough attention « Positive Juice

Condoms. Of course. But condoms are far from the only thing that makes a sexual act “safer.” You see, safe sex is like safe driving. No matter how safe you play it, there’s still a risk. American football. History Early history American football evolved from the sport of rugby football.[3] The first American football game was played on November 6, 1869 between Rutgers and Princeton.

American football

The game was played between two teams of 25 players each, used a round ball, and resembled a combination of rugby and soccer in its rules; the ball could not be picked up or carried, but it could be kicked or batted with the feet, hands, head or sides, with the ultimate goal of advancing it into the opponent's goal. Rutgers won the game 6-4.[4][5] Collegiate play continued for several years in which matches were played using the rules of the host school. Evolution of the game A photograph of Walter Camp, the "Father of American Football", taken from 1878 when Camp was captain of Yale's football team The introduction of the snap resulted in unexpected strategy changes.

Transistor created using only 7 atoms – Computer Chips & Hardware Technology. A barrier facing chip manufacturing in the near future is one of size.

Using existing chip manufacturing technology and techniques we can only go so small before the components being used become too unreliable to form a usable processor. But researchers at the University of New South Wales in Australia may have pushed back that barrier with the creation of a new, tiny transistor. Intel to Mass-Produce New 3-D Transistors for Faster, More Efficient Computer Chips. Acer says Ultrabooks will be $799 next year, $499 in 2013 – Computer Chips & Hardware Technology.

When Intel unveiled the Ultrabook platform back in May, the chip giant had some very specific guidance on what classes a laptop as an Ultrabook.

The “thin, light, and elegant” portable machines have to use a Sandy Bridge Core processor, be no more than 20mm thick, and have a price point of $1,000 or less. That $1,000 price point limit means you should never have to pay more than the base MacBook Air configuration for an Ultrabook, which already makes them look competitive next to Apple’s laptops. Even so, $1,000 for a Windows 7 laptop puts them out of range of a lot of people more used to paying half that for a machine. According to Acer, anyone who can’t afford an Ultrabook now just has to wait. Raspberry Pi has PCBs for 100 beta $25 PCs – Computer Chips & Hardware Technology. It’s the first day of December, the month that Raspberry Pi is set to offer the community a limited supply of $25 PC kits.

Is progress being made towards that goal? Most definitely yes, as a bunch of images appearing on the Raspberry Pi website demonstrate the first signs of the finished device. Sharp develops world's thinnest 12.1 MP CMOS camera module – Cell Phones & Mobile Device Technology News & Updates. In the world of smartphones there’s a number of competing size aspects of a handset that help sell a device.

The marketing departments of the major manufacturers want the thinnest device possible, with the largest display, and longest battery life. If you hit all three, you’ve gone a long way to producing a popular device. Making a phone thin comes down to what materials you use in the casing, how you layout the components inside, and just as importantly: what components are available to use. After all, you can only be as thin as the thickest component in the case. One of the largest components used in phones, in terms of height, is the camera module.

This country has been challenged to make broadband available to 98 percent of Americans. It’s a challenge to lay the foundation for education, innovation and equal opportunity in the 21st century. Unfortunately, recent research shows that our country ranks No. 15 in broadband penetration. We rank No. 26 in broadband speed, behind countries such as South Korea and even Romania. The situation is especially dire in rural America, which has essentially become an “emerging market” for broadband.

Rural communities often lack the most basic fiber optic connectivity, which puts them at a disadvantage when it comes to attracting new businesses, creating jobs, and gaining access to education.
