Are We Really Prepared for the Genetic Revolution?

When humans’ genetic information (known as the genome) was mapped 15 years ago, it promised to change the world. The White Slaves of Barbary. Much attention and condemnation has been directed towards the tragedy of the African slave trade, which took place between the 16 th and the 19 th centuries.

The White Slaves of Barbary

However, another equally despicable trade in humans was taking place around the same time in the Mediterranean. It is estimated that up to 1.25 million Europeans were enslaved by the so-called Barbary corsairs, and their lives were just as pitiful as their African counterparts. They have come to be known as the white slaves of Barbary. Slavery is one of the oldest trades known to man. A New Kind Of Self-Sustaining Fishery Could Off-Set The Worst Impacts Of Animal Farming. An IoT-connected fish farm located in deep seas in Norway is capable of maturing up to 1.5M fish in just 14 months.

A New Kind Of Self-Sustaining Fishery Could Off-Set The Worst Impacts Of Animal Farming

As our global population increases, fish demand is rising fast. But current methods of fish farming won’t be able to meet global fish demand in a safe, sustainable way. Temperatures in our near-water shores are rising, which is hurting wild fish populations, and traditional fish farming has caused environmental damage in the near-shore waters where it’s commonly practiced. Offshore fish farming – fish farming in the deep, open ocean – could provide an alternative: Companies are exploring locating fish farms in deep, far-out waters, which (according to proponents) has barely any effect on wildlife or natural environmental processes. Commercial operation of offshore fish farms has been limited to date due to regulations, as well as the challenges of efficiently operating a large farming operation far from land.

Be Paranoid: Why The New Era Of AI And Data-First Business Will Disrupt Nearly Every Industry. Buzzwords such as "mobile-first" or "big data" are giving way to a more integrated vision of technology as a force multiplier across a broader connected world focused on data and AI.

CES 2018: 14 Trends Shaping The Future According To The Largest Tech Show On Earth

At CES 2018 we attended dozens of demos, dug through the data on the attending companies in our platform, and rounded up a few trends that tell us where categories from auto to consumer hardware to AI are going in 2018 and beyond. The Consumer Electronics Show — better known as CES — is a massive 4-day affair, with over 180K attendees ambling through 2.6M square feet (that’s 54 football fields) of demo space in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This year’s show featured technologies ranging from voice-operated autonomous cars to smart toilets to ping-pong playing robots, and more. To be sure, CES had plenty in the way of “vaporware,” or gee-whiz demos that will never actually see the light of day as products. But there were also hints of true tech innovation and what the future will hold in categories including consumer AI, the Internet of Things, and robotics, among many others. 8 Industries Being Disrupted By Elon Musk And His Companies. Elon Musk is CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has plans to colonize Mars, and thinks AI may turn humans into its pets.

8 Industries Being Disrupted By Elon Musk And His Companies

But beyond the hype and his enormous net worth and Twitter presence, here's how Musk's companies are actually taking on ... virtually every industry. Elon Musk thinks and acts on a larger, more cosmic scale than we’re accustomed to from entrepreneurs. Elon Musk has become a household name synonymous with the future. Whether he’s working on electric vehicles (Tesla) or sending rockets into space (SpaceX), his larger-than-life reputation attracts its fair share of hero-worship.

NACS Online – Your Business – NACS Retail Fuels Reports – 2013 NACS Retail Fuels Report. Diesel fuel had traditionally been less expensive than gasoline, since it was easier to refine from crude oil.

NACS Online – Your Business – NACS Retail Fuels Reports – 2013 NACS Retail Fuels Report

However, beginning in 2004, retail diesel fuel prices have consistently been higher than retail gasoline prices. There are several reasons why. Seasonality is one factor that had always affected diesel fuel prices. Diesel fuel, also known as number 2 distillate, is essentially the same as home heating oil (the major difference is that diesel fuel contains less sulfur). In colder winters when home heating oil is in more demand, diesel prices typically climbed faster than those for gasoline. Also, beginning in September, gas demand declines, but diesel fuel demand increases as more diesel fuel is required for the machinery to harvest and transport crops. Why are diesel, gasoline going opposite ways? - Business - Answer Desk. Though drivers who use gasoline have gotten a break at the pump in the last few weeks, the price of diesel fuel has hit record highs.

That has a lot of readers asking: what gives? New discovery makes electric cars that charge in minutes possible. The electric car industry is on the verge of a revolution, if a breakthrough discovery of new super-fast battery charging technology fulfills its promise. Research by the University of Surrey, Augmented Optics and the University of Bristol unearthed materials with a potential capacity between 1,000 and 10,000 times greater than existing supercapacitors, which are the current common alternative to conventional batteries.

The findings are a potential game-changer for the electric car industry. The technology could power electric cars across similar distances to petrol vehicles, and recharge as quickly as it takes to fill up a petrol tank. The electric cars that are currently available take around six to eight hours to recharge their battery. The project was initiated by Dr Donald Highgate, whose previous research into soft contact lens materials provided a platform for the development. Hemp beats out graphene for high-performance energy storage. Hemp could be a better battery material than the traditional graphene, scientists show in a new research study.

Hemp is coming back into fashion, being used for everything from recyclable, good-for-the-environment cloth to vegan protein powders and milk substitutes. Article by Rebeca Kaplan In addition to that, scientists have now discovered that hemp can store as much energy as graphene, the material that scientists have long thought would be the ideal material for a new kind of super-battery known as a supercapacitor.

Aluminum Batteries Close to Commercial Success. I know it sounds a bit geeky, but we at MetalMiner love to hear about new applications for aluminum. This latest development is not exactly going to change the global demand-supply balance for aluminum but it does showcase one of the many qualities the metal possesses, one which is sometimes overshadowed by aluminum’s lightweight or easy formability.
