Black Sapote or Chocolate Pudding Fruit - Diospyros digyna

Commonly known as Chocolate Pudding Fruit this amazing fruit is low in fat and an excellent source of Vitamin C containing about 4 times as much as an orange. The fruit is delicious eaten fresh or used as a chocolate substitute in recipes and milkshakes or simply mix the pulp with yogurt and lemon juice for a refreshing treat. Fruits can be cut in half and eaten covered in passion fruit, in Mexico the pulp is mashed with orange juice or brandy and served with cream, it is also delicious mixed with wine, cinnamon and sugar. The green fruit is picked when hard and allowed to soften and go brown within 3-6 days. At the ripe stage - you should be able to press the skin with your fingers and leave an indent. Black Sapote - Seedling Closely related to the Persimmon this attractive glossy foliaged tree produces a fruit often called the 'Chocolate Pudding Fruit'. Mikey, the Robot That Charges Itself.

Army develops Vader-like power-cooled gas mask/helmet combo. The US Army’s Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) has developed a new combination of helmet and respirator mask that will keep soldiers safer and more comfortable when buttoned down against chemical, biological, or radiation threats.

Army develops Vader-like power-cooled gas mask/helmet combo

The system, which bears a surface resemblance to helmets worn by Star Wars’ Darth Vader and Halo’s Master Chief, uses built-in fans to both cool a soldier’s face and keep the mask pressurized to prevent contaminated air from leaking in. As someone who has spent hours in a gas mask, I can testify to how uncomfortable and distracting it can be—especially in high heat or humidity. Doing anything in full Nuclear-Biological-Chemical gear is an order of magnitude harder under the best of conditions. By adding a blower to the mask, the Army is hoping to make it easier for soldiers to focus more on the mission and less on the sweat pooling around their eyes.

The ECBC’s Respiratory Protection Branch has been developing and testing the mask for the past year. This plastic heals itself through a process that's eerily... OpenEEG hardware. The OpenEEG project has seen contributions from many talented hardware people over the years, resulting in several different designs which have been tested and tried by various people.

Make your own biodiesel. The first two methods sound easiest, but, as so often in life, it's not quite that simple.

Make your own biodiesel

Vegetable oil is much more viscous (thicker) than either petro-diesel or biodiesel. The purpose of mixing or blending straight vegetable oil (SVO) with other fuels and solvents is to lower the viscosity to make it thinner, so that it flows more freely through the fuel system into the combustion chamber. If you're mixing SVO with petro-diesel you're still using fossil-fuel -- cleaner than most, but still not clean enough, many would say. Still, for every gallon of SVO you use, that's one gallon of fossil-fuel saved, and that much less climate-changing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Native Capacitive Sensors without additional Hardware You can create a touch-sensitive input on any of the Arduino's pins. It requires no special hardware, nevertheless a capacitor of 1nF is recommended in line with the pin to decouple 50Hz noises. Connect a wire or some metallic plate to a pin. The code works by setting the pin to ground, turning on the internal pull-up resistor, and measuring the time it takes for the pin to return to the HIGH state.

If untouched readCapacitivePin returns a low value e.g. "1"; when touched it rises to about 5. The pin is toggled to output mode to discharge the port, and if connected to a voltage source, will short circuit the pin, potentially damaging the Arduino and any hardware attached to the pin.

Ne doit pas être confondu avec graphème. Le graphène est un cristal bidimensionnel (monoplan) de carbone dont l'empilement constitue le graphite.

A mesh network can be designed using a flooding technique or a routing technique. When using a routing technique, the message is propagated along a path, by hopping from node to node until the destination is reached. To ensure all its paths' availability, a routing network must allow for continuous connections and reconfiguration around broken or blocked paths, using self-healing algorithms. A mesh network whose nodes are all connected to each other is a fully connected network.

Mesh networks can be seen as one type of ad hoc network. Building a Mesh Networked Conference Badge. Interactive Gloves Turn Gestures into Music. Compost Your Used Coffee Grounds to Kickstart Your Own DIY Fertilizer. Before you throw out your next batch of used coffee grounds, consider composting them.

As food weblog Serious Eats points out, composting used coffee grounds is a great way to start cheap, low-mainetenance DIY fertilizer. Used coffee grounds are rich in nitrogen, one of the main ingredients necessary for both a good fertilizer and a properly balanced compost pile: When paired with "browns" like leaves, twigs, even coffee filters, coffee is the perfect catalyst for healthy decomposition, which can speed up the composting process and give you better fertilizer faster.

LASER-ENGRAVED ROLLING PINS. Portable SMT Lab for Hacker On The Go. See-through, shatter-proof armor inspired by oysters. Introducing the latest in bioceramic armor: lightweight and transparent yet tough-as-nails, and totally inspired by the natural exoskeleton of a bivalve mollusk. The defensive armor of the windowpane oyster (Placuna placenta) is incredibly resistant to penetrating attacks and damage -- a surprising fact given how it’s 99 percent calcite, a weak and brittle mineral.

(The other 1 percent is an organic material, and not adamantium or anything.) The outer shell even stays transparent despite suffering multiple blows, which can’t be said for manmade windshields or visors. Some Indian and Philippine cities have used the translucent shell for lampshades and as cheaper alternative to window glass. Pure calcite shatters easily. First, they subjected the shell to indentation tests.

Why Debt is creeping into so many science fiction discussions. Coffee and its Effects on Feature Creep. Starting in mid-2004 and until the end of 2006, I worked at a small DNS and DHCP software company called Nominum. These days Nominum offers both software and services, but at its core what has allowed it to be as successful as it has been is the fact that its development group is, singularly, the most brilliant and personally committed to the company group of developers I've ever seen.

Most of the developers with whom I worked had been there from just about the beginning of the company. It was the sort of environment where my VP was still doing the Costco shopping (though admittedly she enjoyed it), everyone knew every other employee's spouse's name, and we got together to have our dogs play.
