Welcome to Sulia
Here's my answer to the #Bengals Twitter Question of the Day, assessing the prospects of Sam Montgomery. I'd say better than 50 percent chance he makes it to training camp. Outside of showing up to the offseason program out of shape and smoking marijuana in the training room during meetings, it would be pretty hard for Montgomery to not get a chance to show what he can do on the field in the preseason. Although, players with these types of red flags have been sent packing before a game is played. (See Harvey, Derrick). Montgomery needs to make the coaches believe the problems which plummeted him down draft boards in 2013 and got him kicked off the Texans before the midway point of his rookie year are in the past.

Quantum of Solar: Cells Get Mystery Power Boost Solar power is becoming more common, but solar cells still aren’t great at harvesting all of the available spectrum of sunlight and turning it into electricity, and they can be expensive. So researchers are continually looking for ways to improve the efficiency of solar cells and find better ways to make solar cells cheaply. Magnetic Bacteria Could Build ‘Bio-Computers’ Among them are post doctoral research student Pralay Santra and professor Prashant Kamat, of the University of Notre Dame, who are building solar cells with layers of quantum dots, instead of silicon, which is typically used. Quantum dots are nanometer-sized crystals that glow when stimulated by an external source such as ultraviolet light.

How to compare two folders in Win 7 prof 64bit RE: SUBDIRECTORIES: Yes! Use 'dir /s /b > A.txt' and 'dir /s /b > B.txt' You can also (rather than bare format) get a lot of other formatting options. Just type 'dir /?' at the Command Promt to get a full list of everything you can put after 'dir' (which stands for "Directory" -- simply a command that says "Give me a directory listing of the contents of the folder I'm "in" currently") The Only Twitter Applications List You'll Ever Need Twitter is a status-updating or microblogging social networking website. It is a breakthrough in social networking because it takes communication into another level. Before, a person can only update his status (eg. what he’s doing, where he is) at a certain time.

Complex Body Parts Could Soon Be Lab-Grown Within a generation, there may be no limit to the kinds of organs and body parts that can be created from scratch. Various groups of scientists have recently created thyroid cells in the lab, grown a new ear in the skin a woman's own arm, and won a Nobel Prize for figuring out how to reprogram cells so that they can turn into a variety of cell types. In the future, there may be no limit to the kinds of organs and body parts that can be created from scratch. One hope is to make donor organs obsolete, or at least far less necessary, eliminating long waiting lists for transplants. By using a patient's own cells, the new wave of regenerative medicine also circumvents ethical arguments and reduces the chance that recipients will reject their new parts.

23 Blog Directories To Submit Your Blog To Gaining exposure for your blog is critical to building a following and revenue. After creating compelling copy, titles, descriptions and link strategies, it’s time to list your blog in one or more directories. There are many paths to building links, such as link baiting or blogroll-link swapping, but few are as easy to implement and cost effective as submitting to blog directories. And good link juice makes for a growing blog.

Solar Power Morphs Into Cones and More All of a sudden everyone seems to be getting funky with the solar cells. From glass for balconies to spinning cells shaped like ice cream cones, solar power is looking slicker and holding more promise than ever. An LA-based company called V3Solar just made a splash with designs for sapphire blue "Spin Cells" that it says can produce 20 times more electricity than traditional flat, static photovoltaic panels.

Navy shows off supersonic railgun, fires test shots It can blast rounds at 5,600 mph, nail targets located over 100 miles away and may be aboard battleships within the next decade. It's called the electromagnetic railgun. And last week, naval researchers moved a step closer to delivering a battle-ready weapon as engineers successfully fired a prototype launcher at a test facility. The initial test kicked off a two-month long evaluation of the 32-megajoule test model, which arrived on Jan. 30. Built by military contractor BAE Systems, the prototype looks more like a working naval weapon compared to previous experimental lab-style launchers. General Atomics, another contractor, is also building a second launcher, scheduled for delivery in April.

Keep tabs on ReadyBoost with Windows 7's Performance Monitor To see ReadyBoost in action, you're going to have to keep tabs on it with Windows 7's Performance Monitor. Greg Shultz shows you how to do just that. In my last blog post, "Take a Closer Look at ReadyBoost Features in Windows 7," I showed you how to set up ReadyBoost and explained how it works. Leaked document outlines Russia's space exploration plans until 2030 While NASA scrapes together money to get to Mars, and China slowly ramps up its space program, another spacefaring nation, Russia, has quietly been ferrying astronauts and cosmonauts to the International Space Station. But now it seems the Kremlin wants to be more than a low-orbit taxi. A leaked document from the Russian space agency Roscosmos outlines the nation's ambitious space exploration strategy until 2030.
