The effect, which didn't hold for female faces, may have something to do with the shape of brown-eyed men's faces, said study researcher Karel Kleisner of Charles University in Prague. On average, brown-eyed men had broader chins and mouths, larger noses, more closely spaced eyes and larger eyebrows than blue-eyed men. … [Read more...] about Study of Dominant-Looking Men Yields Surprising Result
That stability may be a big factor in why the handful of known Novichok victims respond so poorly to treatment: It could take weeks for lipids in fat cells to relinquish their Novichok reserves. Another insidious characteristic of Novichoks is their death grip on AChE: They bind to and block not one site in the active center—as other nerve agents do—but two. “Novichok structures are unique. Really different from other nerve agents,” says Radić. For that reason oximes, an antidote that pries nerve agents off AChE and leads to reactivation of the enzyme, may be far less effective against Novichoks than against classical nerve agents like sarin. “There’s no declassified information on reactivation” in Novichok victims, says Radić. One researcher says that pralidoxime, an antidote carried by U.S. soldiers at risk of nerve agent exposure, helped the Salisbury victims—but not by reactivating AChE. … [Read more...] about How German military scientists likely identified the nerve agent used to attack Alexei Navalny
5G for Time-Sensitive Networks – Time-Triggered Transmission Technology for Telco 5T for 5G To support a transition to 5G networks, telco companies must address a longstanding problem of clock synchronization. This has to occur at the network edge, where the front-haul access network between radio resource units and baseband units requires an exact time synchronization for accurate management of radio resources and radio signal processing. … [Read more...] about HPE Offers NVIDIA ConnectX-6 Dx 100Gb Ethernet Adapter, Optimized for Advanced Security, Virtualization and Storage Requirements
New features available to both the pro and non-pro versions include design changes to match OS X Yosemite, hardware optimization for the latest Macs, improved power efficiency, and better support for Retina displays in Unity mode. Like Parallels’ Coherence mode, VMware’s Unity separates Windows applications from the virtual machine window to make them appear as if they are Mac programs. … [Read more...] about VMware Fusion for Mac now connects to virtual machines in data centers
Corporate IT used to be a static affair. People worked in vast cubicle farms, toiling under the harsh glare of halogen light. It made sense for their data and business-critical applications to be located nearby. Businesses would shove servers into well-ventilated rooms on the premises, or they’d rent space in a local data center. … [Read more...] about What Is Edge Computing, and Why Does It Matter?
