NASA and Japan Unleash World's Best Topographic Map of Earth [PICS] NASA and Japan have published a new version of the world's most complete digital topographic map. It could potentially help people across the globe plan highways, search for natural resources and protect lands with cultural or environmental significance.

The map, often referred to as a global digital elevation model, is an update of the one released in 2009.

While obviously still a beta, this release has definitely come a long way, and would be the first one I would use on a “daily driver” device. There are obviously still some bugs, mostly in third-party apps, but overall it seems like iOS 5 is getting close to finished up and we will see a release in the earlier part of fall rather than the later part.

Science is Everything Pancreatic acinar cell. Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through an enzyme-secreting acinar cell in the human pancreas, showing the nucleus (dark purple, centre), rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER, green lines, top), and zymogen granules (circles), which contain the inactive forms of digestive enzymes. These enzymes are released from the cell by exocytosis. They pass into the pancreatic duct system and are delivered into the duodenum in the gut, where they are converted into their active state. Various locally acting hormones arising from the gut stimulate the production of this pancreatic enzyme-rich fluid.
Versleutel je harddisk in 10 stappen Op onze harde schijven staat veel informatie die we niet met de buitenwereld willen delen. Als je echt wilt voorkomen dat anderen toegang krijgen tot jouw vertrouwelijke data, versleutel dan de gehele harde schijf met DiskCryptor.

In de meeste gevallen volstaat het de pc met bijvoorbeeld een live Linux-cd op te starten om de beveiliging te omzeilen en alsnog toegang te krijgen tot de data.
