By NORMAN PEARLSTINE, DAVID PIERSON, ROBYN DIXON, DAVID S. CLOUD, ALICE SU AND MAX HAO LU Standing on Huawei Technologies Co.’s sprawling new campus near Shenzhen, it’s hard to conceive that Ren Zhengfei, backed by five friends of friends, could have single-handedly turned his tiny start-up into a technology-driven colossus. Standing on Huawei Technologies Co.’s sprawling new campus near Shenzhen, it’s hard to conceive that Ren Zhengfei, backed by five friends of friends, could have single-handedly turned his tiny start-up into a technology-driven colossus. How could Ren, then in his 40s and possessing no intellectual property, have grown Huawei into the world’s biggest seller of telecommunications equipment and one of the largest makers of smartphones, with 188,000 employees in 170 countries? In fact, it’s entirely unbelievable, according to the U.S. government. Washington would have you believe Huawei’s official history is a sham — … [Read more...] about WHO’S BEHIND HUAWEI?

Half of the earth’s population is under 30 years old. Multiple surveys show that this age group—and much of the rest of earth’s citizens—believe among the top three threats to global society is climate change. Scientists around the world are working on mitigating the causes of this problem. Among them are researchers at Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (Technical University of Denmark—DTU), including Karsten Jacobsen, Professor in Theoretical/Computational Physics, Tejs Vegge, Professor and Head of Section for Atomic Scale Materials Modelling at DTU Energy, Ole Holm Nielsen, Senior HPC Officer at DTU, and about 45 others, all part of the Physics and Energy Departments at DTU. “We are part of a worldwide scientific community, trying to find new ways to help humanity produce energy and other things in more efficient ways that help our planet,” stated Nielsen. It all begins with catalysts Catalysts make things happen. Throughout nature and industry, … [Read more...] about Saving the Planet With Supercomputing: Researchers Search for Greener Catalysts, Energy Sources and Batteries
