The researchers tested the game on a group of 40 girls, ages 10 to 12, who had never been exposed to programming before. In just one hour of play, the girls had mastered some of Java’s basic components and were able to use the language to create new ways of playing with the game. INTP Relationships, Love & Mating. By Dr.

INTP Relationships, Love & Mating

A.J. Drenth While sometimes presenting as aloof or self-focused, INTPs often attract potential mates through their Extraverted Intuition (Ne) and Extraverted Feeling (Fe). These functions contribute to their wittiness, personability, and sincerity, conferring a childlike innocence that others find refreshing. INTPs are often kind and considerate, wanting everyone to feel included and treated with respect (Fe). RodinAerodynamics.org - Marko Rodin - Rodin Coil - Waterfox. -- Introduction -- Hopefully this will enable people to understand "why" there is only "one" truth and how we can all move forward in learning more about the "nature" of what that one truth is and why no single person or group of people can be the "owner" of the one truth and that literally everyone has a piece of the "enlightening" puzzle which is like a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. -- Substance -- I just figured out a great example of how two seemingly very different points of view can be demonstrated to have not only similarity but symmetricality to the point that they are saying or expressing almost, if not totally, the same exact thing!

Vortex geometries were studied for high temperature refractory construction. A small scale model was built and tested. In brief the essential combustor design addresses the problems of burning solid fuels for many diverse applications. Ceramic castable cements and ramming mixes were chosen because of their adaptability to form and function. The Mars Society. Home. Mars Facts. Volunteers For Mars Colonization Wanted: Apply Today [VIDEO] Its goal is to create a permanent settlement on the red planet that could pave the way for future space colonies.

Volunteers For Mars Colonization Wanted: Apply Today [VIDEO]

It’s a beta test for planetary colonization, and Mars One seeks to establish an environment that is a “sustainable outpost designed to receive astronauts every two years.” According to Mars One, the company has “developed a precise, realistic plan based entirely upon existing technologies. It is both economically and logistically feasible, in motion through the integration of existing suppliers and experts in space exploration.” If your dream is to be one of the first people to step foot on an alien world, Mars One may just enable it as it has set its requirements for astronauts. The chief medical director of Mars One, Norbert Kraft, a former senior research associate for NASA, discussed the trials and tribulations that lie ahead for any of the brave astronauts chosen for the Mars mission.

Would You Volunteer for a One-Way Trip to Mars? Would you volunteer for a one-way trip to Mars, never again to return to the Earth?

Would You Volunteer for a One-Way Trip to Mars?

That is the proposition the non-profit organization Mars One is putting forth for a group of 4 brave people with a distinct lack of nostalgia for old Mother Earth. Once on the red planet, they will establish a habitable, sustainable outpost designed to receive additional astronauts every two years. If the plan works, we will see Mars being colonized by as early as 2023… that’s 10 short years people! New Insights Into the Genetic Code. Swiss Researchers are looking several billion years back in time, when life on Earth was just beginning to examine how a primitive protein was able to evolve.

New Insights Into the Genetic Code

The journey into the past also afforded the scientists a glimpse into the future of synthetic biology. The first primitive life forms that developed on Earth around four billion years ago had little in common with today's organisms. They probably managed without proteins. GSF2013. Mueller Planetarium to unveil mural-sized images from NASA. WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 15, 2009 Lincoln, Neb., November 11th, 2009 — Mueller Planetarium at the University of Nebraska State Museum will take visitors on a journey to the center of our galaxy when it unveils two new mural-sized images of the Milky Way's core, as seen by all three of NASA's Great Observatories: the Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The stunning photographs commemorate the 2009 International Year of Astronomy and will be unveiled to the public at 4 p.m.

Is our universe inside a bubble? First observational test of the 'multiverse' The theory that our universe is contained inside a bubble, and that multiple alternative universes exist inside their own bubbles -- making up the 'multiverse' -- is, for the first time, being tested by physicists. Two research papers published in Physical Review Letters and Physical Review D are the first to detail how to search for signatures of other universes. Physicists are now searching for disk-like patterns in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation -- relic heat radiation left over from the Big Bang -- which could provide tell-tale evidence of collisions between other universes and our own.

Many modern theories of fundamental physics predict that our universe is contained inside a bubble. Learning the Alien Language of Dolphins. Humans and dolphins are inventing a common language together. This is big news! In all the hoopla over the world ending due to being asteroid-smashed, man becoming immortal thanks to the singularity in 2045, and Watson the trivia-machine winning Jeopardy! Tuning graphene film so it sheds water. Windshields that shed water so effectively that they don't need wipers. Ship hulls so slippery that they glide through the water more efficiently than ordinary hulls.

These are some of the potential applications for graphene, one of the hottest new materials in the field of nanotechnology, raised by the research of James Dickerson, assistant professor of physics at Vanderbilt. Dickerson and his colleagues have figured out how to create a freestanding film of graphene oxide and alter its surface roughness so that it either causes water to bead up and run off or causes it to spread out in a thin layer. "Graphene films are transparent and, because they are made of carbon, they are very inexpensive to make," Dickerson said. "The technique that we use can be rapidly scaled up to produce it in commercial quantities. " Scientists Find Cheap Solar Panel Material In Toothpaste – New Tech Gadgets & Electronic Devices.

Will 'Bionic Bodies' Offer High-Tech Hope to the Disabled? Computer learns language by playing games. Computers are great at treating words as data: Word-processing programs let you rearrange and format text however you like, and search engines can quickly find a word anywhere on the Web. But what would it mean for a computer to actually understand the meaning of a sentence written in ordinary English — or French, or Urdu, or Mandarin? One test might be whether the computer could analyze and follow a set of instructions for an unfamiliar task. And indeed, in the last few years, researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab have begun designing machine-learning systems that do exactly that, with surprisingly good results.
