Attack on the pentagon results in discovery of new mathematical tile In the world of mathematical tiling, news doesn’t come bigger than this. In the world of bathroom tiling – I bet they’re interested too. If you can cover a flat surface using only identical copies of the same shape leaving neither gaps nor overlaps, then that shape is said to tile the plane.
Unique Metallic Q-Glass Could Be New Class of Solids Q-glass, a new solid alloy that has been discovered in a rapidly cooled mixture of aluminum, iron and silicon, is neither a pure glass, a crystal, nor even a quasicrystal, according to a team of researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Argonne National Laboratory. The round nodules are the q-glass, not crystalline but with a well-defined chemical composition (Leonid A. Bendersky / NIST)
Los Angeles Stands Up To The Supreme Court, Looks To Revoke Corporate Personhood Billions of corporate dollars have poured into the 2012 Election, all thanks to the Citizens United decision by the conservative members of the Supreme Court. Towns and counties across the country have proposed or passed resolutions against corporate personhood, the most recent of which is Missoula, Montana. But now a major city in America looks to do the same next week.
Indian man single-handedly plants a 1,360-acre forest A little more than 30 years ago, a teenager named Jadav "Molai" Payeng began burying seeds along a barren sandbar near his birthplace in northern India's Assam region to grow a refuge for wildlife. Not long after, he decided to dedicate his life to this endeavor, so he moved to the site so he could work full-time creating a lush new forest ecosystem. Incredibly, the spot today hosts a sprawling 1,360 acres of jungle that Payeng planted — single-handedly. The Times of India recently caught up with Payeng in his remote forest lodge to learn more about how he came to leave such an indelible mark on the landscape. It all started way back in 1979, when floods washed a large number of snakes ashore on the sandbar.
Graphene supercapacitors created with ‘traditional paper making’ process, rivals lead-acid battery capacity Materials engineers at Monash University in Australia have devised a method of producing graphene supercapacitors that have the same energy density as the lead-acid battery under your car’s hood. Not only are these supercapacitors about 10 times more energy-dense than commercial devices, but the method of producing the graphene inside the supercapacitors seems to be novel as well. The engineers say they used a process that is similar to traditional paper making — and that it could easily and cost-effectively scaled up for commercial production of graphene, and graphene-based supercaps. Supercapacitors are essentially small batteries that can recharge and discharge almost instantly. While this results in a very high power density (lots of watts), their energy density is generally very low (watt-hours).
Alternative Radio — Ending Corporate Rule Program #CIEP003. Recorded in Missoula, MT on March 01, 2012. Modern corporations trace their origins to the trading companies of imperial Europe more than three centuries ago. OverviewSentinel Mission The spacecraft and instrument use high-heritage flight proven deep space systems, originally developed by NASA, to minimize technical and programmatic risks. These heritage missions include large space-based telescopes (Spitzer, Kepler), a large format camera made up of many individual detectors (Kepler), and a cryogenically cooled instrument (Spitzer). By detective and tracking nearly all of the Near Earth Objects greater than 50 meters in diameter, the Sentinel Space Telescope will create a map of the solar system in Earth’s neighborhood enabling future robotic and manned exploration. The data provided by Sentinel will also identify objects that are potentially hazardous to humans to provide an early warning to protect the Earth from impact.
