BARCELONA, Spain—Samsung has finally taken the wraps off of its new flagship for 2015: the Samsung Galaxy S6. This year there are two versions sharing the spotlight, one normal "flat" version just called the Galaxy S 6 and a second version with a curved screen on both sides called the Galaxy S6 Edge. With both, Samsung seems to have done something about its cheap-feeling devices. Like the Xiaomi Mi Note , the back of these devices has switched from plastic to glass, which should make for a more premium-feeling (while more fragile) device. The glass is actually Gorilla Glass 4 , making the Galaxy S6 one of the first devices to use it. The frame is much improved as well—it's now metal, meaning there is almost no plastic on Samsung's latest phones. Long-time Samsung fans will be disappointed to hear that the back is no longer removable, which means long-standard Samsung features like a removable battery and MicroSD slot are out. The Galaxy S6 also drops the … [Read more...] about Samsung’s new flagship smartphones: the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge

Back in July 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines still six months away, the CTA (Consumer Technology Association) announced that its upcoming CES 2021 show would be an all-digital experience . Come January 2021, the Las Vegas exhibition venues, normally packed with stands from companies large and small, remained empty; keynotes and product demos were relayed online, with no in-person audiences; and the normal hectic round of face-to-face meetings and chance encounters on the show floor simply didn't happen. Basically, CES 2021 mirrored its audience, which was busy working remotely, under varying levels of social-distancing measures depending on the local or regional state of the pandemic. The tech industry still managed to discuss and demonstrate new technologies and products at CES 2021, but it was inevitably a smaller show, although still claimed by the CTA as 'the largest digital tech event' . As CES 2022 approaches, the coronavirus pandemic is still … [Read more...] about CES 2022 preview: Crowds set to return to Las Vegas, but digital element remains
The feral child — a child raised by wild animals — is common in myth and folklore. Feral children are typically thought of as having been raised without human parental contact. A boy or girl raised by wolves — or bears or apes — is the original "wild child," often having little or no language ability or manners. Because feral children lack socialization, they are sometimes considered to represent a pure natural human state. Stories of feral children date back at least to Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers of Roman mythology rescued from certain death and raised by a wolf. In modern times, the feral child image evokes a strong romanticism for many people. This was especially true at the turn of the last century. Rudyard Kipling made a hero of the feral child Mowgli — an Indian boy raised by wolves — in his classic and wildly popular 1894 collection of stories "The Jungle Book." Writer Edgar Rice Burroughs created Tarzan, a boy raised by African apes, in the early 1900s, and his … [Read more...] about Feral Children: Lore of the Wild Child

If you want to own cryptocurrency —either because you’re looking to invest or because you want to spend money online—you’re going to need a crypto wallet. Using one will let you keep your crypto safe, while also allowing you to make transactions. What Is a Crypto Wallet? A crypto wallet is nothing like your regular, real-life wallet. Right now, you could probably reach for your wallet, open it up and either take out physical money or put some back in—or at least some kind of payment card. A wallet doesn’t protect your money in any way, except maybe from the weather or getting lost in your bag. A crypto wallet is a different beast entirely. A crypto wallet is more or less your identity when you buy Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency: its address is how your buying and selling is recorded on the blockchain (and also the reason these currencies aren’t anonymous ). Because of this, technically you don’t need a wallet when doing anything with cryptocurrencies: you could … [Read more...] about What Is a Crypto Wallet?
The head of the Royal Air Force says he thinks that Britain should go Net Zero ten years earlier than planned because ‘our public demands it of us.’ According to the Telegraph : While Defence, which accounts for 50 per cent of the UK central government’s emissions, has pledged to work towards its legal commitment of net-zero by 2050, Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston has called on the Royal Air Force to meet the target 10 years earlier. During a recent visit to Washington, Sir Mike said: “I recognise that sounds crazy to some, that we’ve got an Air Force Chief talking about being net-zero, but I think the imperative is clear: our politicians will demand it of us, are demanding of us. Our public demands it of us. And the young people in the Royal Air Force today demand it of me and the leadership, that we should be taking a lead in this.” Sir Mike said he had a “hunch” that as the climate crisis worsens, the target for net-zero will be brought forward. Who is this … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Military Aircraft ‘Net Zero’ 10 Years Sooner, Says RAF Chief
The British Army is considering phasing out fossil-fuel-powered tanks, APCs and lorries in order to save the planet and to attract more recruits who are worried about global warming. No, really. These are the words of Britain’s senior army officer, General Sir Mark Carleton-Smith, speaking at a defence and security event in London yesterday. The Telegraph reports: Calling on British industry to lead the way on developing new sources of energy for the military, he added: “The challenge, and genuine commercial opportunity, is to aim high and lead the world in the development of military equipment which is not only battle-winning but also environmentally sustainable. “That gives the British Army considerable operational benefits, such as reducing our logistical drag, and also puts the Army … on the right side of the environmental argument, especially in the eyes of that next generation of recruits that increasingly make career decisions based on a prospective employer’s … [Read more...] about Delingpole: British Army to Phase out Fossil Fuels to Attract Eco-Recruits
The Armed Forces of the United Kingdom have become mired in identity politics, with the British Army bragging that it is winning the “race for diversity” against the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. “[M]ultiple long-term targets [were] set out by the country’s defence and military leaders” to increase military diversity in 2015, according to military interest news source the Forces Network, with an increase in the proportion of BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) personnel in the Regular Forces to 10 per cent by 2020 becoming a key target. “As of March this year, annual intake reached a hopeful 9.1 per cent,” the report notes. At present, the British Army appears to be leading the pack, with 11.1 per cent BAME personnel, compared with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines on 3.8 per cent, and the Royal Air Force “struggling” on 2.3 per cent. “Diversity and inclusion is critical to our success and will give us the operational edge we need,” claimed Secretary of State for … [Read more...] about British Forces Mired in Identity Politics in Army ‘Race for Diversity’

Photosynthesis is the process used by plants, algae and certain bacteria to turn sunlight, carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into food (sugars) and oxygen . Here's a look at the general principles of photosynthesis and related research to help develop clean fuels and sources of renewable energy . Types of photosynthetic processes There are two types of photosynthetic processes: oxygenic photosynthesis and anoxygenic photosynthesis. They both follow very similar principles, but oxygenic photosynthesis is the most common and is seen in plants, algae and cyanobacteria. During oxygenic photosynthesis, light energy transfers electrons from water (H2O) taken up by plant roots to CO2 to produce carbohydrates . In this transfer, the CO2 is "reduced," or receives electrons, and the water is "oxidized," or loses electrons. Oxygen is produced along with carbohydrates. Oxygenic photosynthesis functions as a counterbalance to respiration by taking in the CO2 produced by all … [Read more...] about What is photosynthesis?
