Quantum physics enables perfectly secure cloud computing Researchers have succeeded in combining the power of quantum computing with the security of quantum cryptography and have shown that perfectly secure cloud computing can be achieved using the principles of quantum mechanics. They have performed an experimental demonstration of quantum computation in which the input, the data processing, and the output remain unknown to the quantum computer. The international team of scientists will publish the results of the experiment, carried out at the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ) at the University of Vienna and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), in the forthcoming issue of Science. Quantum computers are expected to play an important role in future information processing since they can outperform classical computers at many tasks.
Criteria Criteria for Selection into the Schwab Foundation Network 1. Transformative Social Change The social enterprise achieves transformative social and/or environmental change through the application of innovative and practical approaches to benefit society in general, with an emphasis on underserved populations. Singapore driver returns $900 000 left in his cab to Thai couple Sia Ka Tian, 70, was shocked to find the money in a black paper bag on the back seat on Monday after he dropped the couple off at a shopping centre. "When I saw the money, I thought, trouble is here. I was sure there was at least $200 000 in the bag," the Straits Times quoted the 31-year veteran in the taxi business as saying. But when he brought the money to transport company ComfortDelGro's lost-and-found office, his stunned colleagues counted Sg$1.1 million in thousand-dollar bills. "The money is unimportant to me. It doesn't belong to me, so how can I use it?"
Chaos theory A double rod pendulum animation showing chaotic behavior. Starting the pendulum from a slightly different initial condition would result in a completely different trajectory. The double rod pendulum is one of the simplest dynamical systems that has chaotic solutions. Chaos: When the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future.
aboutus About Share International Share International is a worldwide network of individuals and groups whose purpose is to make known the fact that Maitreya ― the World Teacher for the coming age ― and his group, the Masters of Wisdom, are now among us, emerging into the public arena ― gradually, so as not to infringe human free will. In addition to the information on this site and sister sites in other languages, free materials are distributed around the world to the public and media by volunteers in many countries. Another vehicle for the dissemination of this information is Share International, a monthly magazine read in over 70 countries. Building 'invisible' materials with light A new method of building materials using light, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge, could one day enable technologies that are often considered the realm of science fiction, such as invisibility cloaks and cloaking devices. Although cloaked starships won't be a reality for quite some time, the technique which researchers have developed for constructing materials with building blocks a few billionths of a metre across can be used to control the way that light flies through them, and works on large chunks all at once. Details are published today (28 July) in the journal Nature Communications. The key to any sort of 'invisibility' effect lies in the way light interacts with a material. When light hits a surface, it is either absorbed or reflected, which is what enables us to see objects. However, by engineering materials at the nanoscale, it is possible to produce 'metamaterials': materials which can control the way in which light interacts with them.
Is Revitalizing A Neighborhood What’s most striking when you enter the brick bunker formerly known as Stock House No. 3 is the green, says Fred Haberman, a cofounder and partner in Urban Organics, a futuristic farm housed inside a long-vacant structure on the former site of Hamm’s Brewery in East St. Paul. "It’s mind-boggling to come into this old building and see so much greenery," he says. "The colors are almost electric. Looking at this kale planted two weeks ago, you’d be shocked at how quickly it’s grown." The "secret sauce" for growing that electric-green kale, chard, and leafy herbs is the nutrient-rich wastewater pumped from four 3,500-gallons tanks of tilapia, which flows through a system of pipes and filters to irrigate and fertilize the plants before returning, clean, to the fish.
Scientists offer quantum theory of soul's existence Maybe Patrick Swayze was onto something when he walked off to heaven at the end of 'Ghost'. Source: Supplied According to the quantum consciousness theory, the soul lives within structures called microtubules that live inside brain cells. Scientists Uncover How Our Brains Recognize Faces GettyAlfred Pasieka/Science Photo Library When you see a face, what happens in your brain? How do your neurons process facial features to recognize a person you know? Thanks to a group of researchers at Caltech, we may finally have the answer.
International Parliament for Safety and Peace The International Parliament for Safety and Peace (IPSP) has operated for over 35 years in Palermo, Sicily. It is an intergovernmental organization of States, founded originally by constituting charter of the Republics of Cyprus, Senegal and Mali on 15th December 1975 and has today parliamentary and diplomatic delegations in more than 130 Nations. The IPSP Charter on the Protection of Human Life has been given to the world on 16th of January 1976. Founders of the International Parliament for Safety and Peace are the orthodox Archbishops Monsignor Viktor Busà & who is first President of the Board of States for the life protection, and the late orthodox Archbishop Monsignor Makariós III, former President of the Republic of Cyprus.
Scientists construct first map of how the brain organizes everything we see Our eyes may be our window to the world, but how do we make sense of the thousands of images that flood our retinas each day? Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first interactive map of how the brain organizes these groupings.
Urban Organics-Haberman Transforming the food system and strengthening local communities. Haberman believes in the pioneering spirit so much that sometimes we just have to take the plunge ourselves. At a new organic urban farm in St. Paul, we’re quite literally diving in because this farm doesn’t use dirt. It’s all about water. Aquaponics, to be exact. Technologies - Meditation Tools for the future. Baramay stands for Life force energy in Khmer (Cambodian) language. It can be known as chi, prana, cosmic energy or orgone energy. It is the very same energy that is used to sustain life. The human energy field is subtle and has luminous radiation surrounding it and extending outward from the physical body. Auras are electromagnetic fields of the body which serve as a visual measure of our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual states.
How Learning to Read Rewrites the Brain People who learn to read as adults show profound changes in deep structures of the brain, according to a new study. The findings may change researchers' perspectives on the extent of plasticity in the adult brain, the study said. In the study, researchers recruited a group of completely illiterate women from villages in northern India and taught them to read.
