Inventor of Hidden Bike Motor Tells '60 Minutes' How to Cheat. “This is like I’m on flat ground,” says anchor Bill Whitaker on Sunday’s edition of 60 Minutes.

Inventor of Hidden Bike Motor Tells '60 Minutes' How to Cheat

But in fact, he’s pedaling uphill in the Hungarian countryside. What’s making it so easy for him? There’s a tiny motor, hidden in the hub of the bicycle, helping to propel Whitaker up the hill. This motor is the brainchild of Hungarian bicyclist, inventor, and businessman Istvan Varjas, who says professional cyclists have probably used it for years to cheat in competitions. But even though he invented it, Varjas washes his hands of any wrongdoing that may come from people using the device. v86/Readme.md at master · copy/v86.

These images of eerie 'blue jets' reveal just how creepy being alone in space is. When thrust into Earth's orbit for an extended stay in space, astronauts don't just experience an array of physical changes - space travel can have many mind-altering effects on a person, and frequent hallucinations are unnervingly common.

These images of eerie 'blue jets' reveal just how creepy being alone in space is

So imagine what it would feel like to be floating 400 km (250 miles) above the surface of our planet, staring into the void of space, and for a split second, you thought you saw an unexplained flash of bright blue light, or vast branches of what looks like upside-down lightning piercing the darkness. In the early Apollo missions, astronauts kept seeing regular flashes or streaks of light in space that were gone as quickly as they appeared.

Even as recently as 2012, astronaut Don Pettit described these experiences as "flashes in my eyes, like luminous dancing fairies" that would appear "in the dark confines of my sleep station, with the droopy eyelids of pending sleep". Andreas Mogensen. The Basics of Bayesian Statistics. Bayesian Inference is a way of combining information from data with things we think we already know.

The Basics of Bayesian Statistics

For example, if we wanted to get an estimate of the mean height of people, we could use our prior knowledge that people are generally between 5 and 6 feet tall to inform the results from the data we collect. If our prior is informative and we don't have much data, this will help us to get a better estimate. If we have a lot of data, even if the prior is wrong (say, our population is NBA players), the prior won't change the estimate much.

You might say that including such "subjective" information in a statistical model isn't right, but there's subjectivity in the selection of any statistical model. Bayesian Inference makes that subjectivity explicit. 7 Signs You May be a Victim of Statism · The Mind Unleashed.

The tiny house phenomenon has swept the world and a Sydney company can now lay claim to a revolutionary new design – Australia’s first flat-pack, off-grid tiny home.

Australia's First Flat-Pack, Off-Grid Tiny Home

Created by Big World Homes, the tiny house is being unveiled at the Sydney Architecture Festival, which runs from September 30 to October 3. The portable home can be built by two people in a few days using a hammer and drill, and sells for $65,000. The tiny home comes with all the internal fit-out, including a living room, bed, running water and a plumbed bathroom. It’s also self-sufficient, with solar panels to provide electricity and running water sourced from inbuilt rainwater tanks. Big World Homes architect Alexander Symes says the tiny house has been designed to offer a housing alternative for Australians at a time when affordability is a growing issue.

Researchers Make a SHOCKING Claim That Humans Did NOT Evolve On Earth! This year, other scientists have argued that life originated on Mars, due to a mineral found in Martian meteorites, thought to be crucial to the genesis of life.

The microcomputer Raspberry Pi 3 came out in February to replace its forerunner, the Raspberry Pi 2 — and the successor achieved commercial success. Enthusiasts have been trying their hands at various projects that make use of this versatile computer.

Raspberry Pi 3 Specs The third generation of the Raspberry Pi shares some of its predecessor's specifications, such as a 1 GB RAM, four USB Ports, full HDMI port, and VideoCore IV 3D graphics core. But the new model boasts a 1.2 GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU, 802.11n Wireless LAN, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Bluetooth 4.1. PoisonTap: This $5 Device Hacks A Locked Computer In Seconds. I have known many sorts of USB devices capable of killing a computer, enhance the security of a machine, perform HIV tests with 95% accuracy, used as a password generator, and much more.

Pi boards are often a part of various DIY hacks. For instance, using it as a device for Wardriving around your city. We have seen many instances of people taking advantage of the USB to gain access to a device. A Raspberry Pi board can be a good companion while doing such activities. Usually, these USB hacking activities take advantage of one or more vulnerabilities in the operating system.

Zizek on trump. Fortress town of Palmanova is the most perfect shaped town in the world. A star fort is a type of fortification which first appeared in the 15th century in Italy. The medieval fortifications that were built of stones were an easy target for cannons. That is why the star forts were built of bricks, earth, and other materials which made the fort much stronger and less likely to be shattered by cannons. Map of the fortress in the 17th century.
