Some of Greenland's coastal ice will be permanently lost by 2100: Glaciers and ice caps can no longer capture meltwater. -The glaciers and ice caps that dot the edges of the Greenland coast are not likely to recover from the melting they are experiencing now, a study has found.
Researchers report in the current issue of the journal Nature Communications that melting on the island passed a tipping point 20 years ago. The smallest glaciers and ice caps on the coast are no longer able to regrow lost ice. The current study suggests that the melting of Greenland's coastal ice will raise global sea level by about 1.5 inches by 2100. See How This House Was 3D Printed in Just 24 Hours. 3D printing is being used to produce more and more novel items: tools, art, even rudimentary human organs.
What all those items have in common, though, is that they’re small. The next phase of 3D printing is to move on to things that are big. Really big. Music making with tools for Linux. Do you think music software is only the domain of expensive proprietary software?
Think again. There are literally hundreds of applications out there designed by, and for, those with a musical bent. Music projects, including many projects specifically for the Linux operating system, flourish in the open source community as musicians take to coding to produce tools to make their lives easier. Raspberry Pi VPN Access Point - Pi My Life Up. Tips for troubleshooting with Linux. AsciiDoc for open source documentation. I discovered AsciiDoc while writing Learn Linux in a Month of Lunches.
AsciiDoc is a fantastically thorough markup language for writing books—think Markdown, but with more options, such as sidebars, notes, and tables. AsciiDoc lets you just type, with simple syntax controlling the formatting. A look at the Raspberry Pi Sense HAT. In my first article in my series, I wrote about the Astro Pi competition, an opportunity for UK school students to have their coded experiments run in space.
We're getting closer and closer to the launch date of December 15, when British European Space Agency (ESA) Astronaut Tim Peake will embark on his six-month mission, Principia. He'll be conducting scientific experiments and engaging with young people in educational outreach activities. As part of this, he's taking up two Raspberry Pi computers in purpose-built flight cases, each with camera modules and sensor boards attached. These will be running Python programs written by the Astro Pi competition winners. Learn a Bash script for a simple, user-friendly command-line calculator.

Ask any Linux enthusiast, and they’ll tell you how awesome an operating system Linux can be.
(Well, except Bryan Lunduke, who will say it sucks before he says it’s awesome.) For the desktop user, the freedom from worry about most viruses is a big plus, and not spending $100 upgrading Windows is a big plus too. As awesome as Linux is for desktop use, Linux (and BSD for that matter) truly shines as a server. Raspberry Pi OwnCloud: Your Own Personal Cloud Storage - Pi My Life Up.
