So, naturally, their latest quest would involve greatly decreasing the storage capacity needed for one bit of data, which on today's computers stands at about 1 million atoms. They set out to develop the ultimate memory chips of the future. Starting at the very beginning of density—single atoms—they created the world’s smallest magnetic memory bit and answered the question of how many atoms it takes to reliably store one bit of magnetic information at a low temperature: 12. By studying the behavior of atoms, researchers can identify crucial factors for building smaller, faster and more energy-efficient devices for business and consumers. A history of innovation As one of the last remaining industrial labs, IBM continues to emphasize fundamental science and investment in R&D.

Badass of the Week: Anthony Omari - StumbleUpon

He knew right away that they weren't there to sell Girl Scout cookies or ask him for a jumping mid-air high-five. Omari is the custodian of Faraja Children's Home in Ngong, Kenya – a sanctuary of healing and love that over the past several years has grown from a tin-roofed one-room shack in the slums of Nairobi into a decent-sized facility that has taken in 37 boys and girls who have been abandoned or orphaned from the street. A place of hope and peace for children who have tragically slipped through the cracks of Kenyan society. Omari's mother, known to her charges only as "Momma", runs the Home, and, ever the diligent son, Anthony lives at the facility and helps his mom make sure that the children are provided for with a warm bed, a hot meal, a primary school education, and medical attention when they need it.

Arianny Celeste, the UFC's most resplendent ring girl, was recently spotted poolside at a hotel in Miami. The alluring Arianny was dressed to impress in a teeny, body-bearing bikini that leaves nothing (aside from your impure thoughts) to the imagination. Obviously, this isn't the first time we've seen this bewitching broad sporting a bikini—it's her signature look. Arianny has donned more eye-catching, head-turning, traffic-stopping swimwear than the Swedish Bikini Team. Wait, is the Swedish Bikini Team even a real thing? Nevermind… Let's get back to the topic at hand—which is Arianny Celeste and her steadfast dedication to wearing the absolute minimum amount of clothing allowed without law enforcement issuing citations. How about we peruse a gallery of of AC's hottest bikini photos and get to know a little more about the woman behind the bikini in the process.
