Une feuille pour remplacer le nucléaire

first_imgUne feuille pour remplacer le nucléaire ?Le Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) a mis au point une technologie capable de produire les éléments nécessaires à la production d’électricité. Pas une découverte nous direz-vous…Sauf que là,  la génératrice est une simple feuille.Voilà peut-être l’alternative au nucléaire dont tout le monde rêve. Le Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) a ainsi dévoilé le fruit de ses dernières recherches dans le domaine de la production électrique. Il s’agit d’une feuille composée d’une cellule solaire en silicium avec différents matériaux catalytiques attachés sur les deux côtés. Il suffit ensuite de la plonger dans de l’eau et de l’exposer à la lumière solaire pour qu’elle produise rapidement des bulles d’oxygène sur un côté et d’hydrogène sur l’autre. En plaçant ces deux types de bulles dans une pile à combustible, elles se combinent de nouveau en eau tout en produisant de l’électricité dans ce processus, explique le Professeur Daniel Nocera. Un procédé intelligent puisqu’il fait appel à des matériaux bon marché et abondants, le silice, le cobalt ou encore le nickel. La feuille est ainsi pourvue d’une fine couche de semi-conducteurs en silice, un matériau largement utilisé dans la fabrication des cellules solaires et qui a la capacité de transformer l’énergie solaire en un flux continu d’électricité à l’intérieur de la feuille. Le cobalt va ensuite jouer le rôle de catalyseur libèrant l’oxygène d’une part, tandis que le nickel, le molybdène et le zinc de l’autre face libèrera l’hydrogène.

Vitesse de sédimentation définition comment se passe lexamen quels sont les risques

first_imgVitesse de sédimentation : définition, comment se passe l’examen, quels sont les risques pour la santé ?Également appelée réaction de Biernacki, la vitesse de sédimentation est un examen biologique fréquemment prescrit par les médecins afin de détecter un éventuel mécanisme inflammatoire.Qu’est-ce que la vitesse de sédimentation ?Il s’agit d’un test médical d’orientation qui permet au médecin d’affiner son diagnostic. En effet, la vitesse de sédimentation correspond à la durée qu’il faudra aux globules rouges et aux autres éléments sanguins en suspension dans le plasma pour se précipiter au fond d’un tube à sédimentation de Westergreen gradué de 0 à 200 mm. Le taux de sédimentation est ainsi exprimé en mm/h. Ce dernier varie en fonction de la concentration des protéines contenue dans le sang, susceptible de fluctuer en présence d’un processus inflammatoire. Il faut savoir qu’une inflammation entraîne une augmentation du taux de protéines inflammatoires et d’immunoglobulines. De fait, la vitesse de sédimentation s’impose comme un marqueur non spécifique de l’inflammation.Vitesse de sédimentation : comment se déroule l’examen ?À l’instar de nombreuses analyses sanguines, la vitesse de sédimentation nécessite la réalisation d’une prise de sang dans une veine du pli du coude. Il est préférable d’effectuer cet examen en étant à jeun et, si possible, en dehors de la période menstruelle. Le prélèvement ainsi effectué par un professionnel est conservé dans un tube renfermant une substance anticoagulante (1 volume de citrate de sodium pour 4 volumes de sang). Le tube est positionné verticalement. La vitesse de sédimentation est alors évaluée en hauteur de cellules sédimentées (mm) mesurée au bout d’1 heure puis de 2 heures, même s’il existe certaines techniques plus rapides. Bien qu’ils soient rares, les risques induits lors d’un prélèvement sanguin existent, mais restent minimes : hémorragie, syncope, hématome, infection… Les résultats sont généralement obtenus par le patient 24h après la prise de sang.Vitesse de sédimentation : quels sont les risques pour la santé ? À lire aussiCancers digestifs : les dépister grâce à un test sanguinLors de la 1re heure, les valeurs normales de la vitesse de sédimentation doivent être comprises entre 4 mm et 8 mm chez la femme et entre 3 mm et 6 mm chez l’homme. Elles doivent être inférieures à 20 mm à la 2e heure. Si les résultats de l’examen sont anormaux, cela ne signifie pas pour autant que le patient souffre d’une pathologie. Pour arriver à un diagnostic précis, le médecin doit alors envisager d’autres examens plus spécifiques. En effet, les causes d’une vitesse de sédimentation élevée sont nombreuses : anémie, grossesse, insuffisance rénale, hypercholestérolémie (excès de cholestérol), maladie auto-immune… Un taux anormalement bas, quant à lui, peut indiquer la présence, entre autres, d’une anémie falciforme (drépanocytose), d’une insuffisance cardiaque, d’une cryoglobulinémie, d’une hémoglobinopathie ou encore d’une hyperviscosité.Le 29 mars 2017 à 12:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

No laws requiring public to be informed when sex offenders are released

However, Mr Jackson served all of the period that he was committed to prison to serve and was released accordingly. There is no requirement within Prisons Ordinance for any victim or community notification when anyone is released from prison without this being for the purposes of parole. Although it is possible for prisoners to seek voluntary supervision upon release, there is no statutory supervision requirements contained within the Prisons Ordinance.” End quote.The Governor adds that the Police are aware of Mr. Jackson’s release from Her Majesty’s Prison on September 2nd, 2016.

Washington ethics panel tosses free meal complaint

first_imgOLYMPIA — A legislative ethics panel this week dismissed a complaint about some Washington state lawmakers accepting free meals from lobbyists, but it encouraged the Legislature to clarify how frequently such meals should be permitted.The Legislative Ethics Board’s Wednesday decision, which was released publicly Friday, said that if the Legislature doesn’t address the issue in the 60-day session beginning in January, the panel will work to establish rules on an enforceable standard.The investigation was prompted by a complaint filed after The Associated Press and a consortium of public radio stations found that the state’s 50 most active lobbyists pampered legislators with $65,000 in free meals in the first four months of this year. Washington ethics law prohibits public officials from accepting free meals on more than “infrequent occasions,” but the panel noted that the rule is not clearly defined in the Ethics in Public Service Act.“The absence of any standard or guidance has created a situation where legislators do not know at what point their actions may constitute a violation of the Act,” the ruling reads. “Because of the uncertainty surrounding the statute the Board is divided on the question of whether there is reasonable cause to believe the Act has been violated in this case.”The ethics complaint focused on the top five recipients identified by reporters: Republican Sens. Doug Ericksen of Ferndale, Steve Litzow of Mercer Island, Joe Fain of Auburn, Mike Hewitt of Walla Walla and Mark Schoesler of Ritzville.last_img read more

Personal data is often stored in thousands of databases and organisations will need to find, evaluate and categorise every piece of data relating to each customer to ensure compliance.“Overcoming this challenge presents an opportunity for organisations as they form a new type of relationship with their customers that is bound by integrity, understanding and respect for their individual choices. We are entering a new data era that requires a firm grip of customer data. One that rewards consumers as well as protects their right to privacy.”Read more about the implications of GDPR for employers in Ruth Buchanan: The new General Data Protection Regulation is just around the corner.last_img read more

Implementing a Mobile Strategy as an Independent Publisher

first_imgIn addition, Flash-based advertising will not display correctly on iPhones and iPads and certain javascript functionality can be compromised. Video is another important consideration, as the video itself must be coded to be mobile friendly or potentially your video will not playback properly on certain mobile devices. Many third party providers that deliver video will have smart delivery to ensure that if the agent is mobile, both size and codec, are delivered versus video delivered to a PC.On some site platforms such as WordPress and others, there are plug-ins that can be installed and configured to add custom CSS styling to site content and strip out most everything except for main post entries and simplify the navigation menus for easier mobile browsing. The plug-ins detect the agent and automatically display the mobile style and framework. This makes mobilizing a site a very simple process. For other platforms, more custom CSS and coding strategies may be needed to do a clean mobile conversion. The Design World site was built custom on .NET / C# and in our case presented substantially more work to do a clean mobile version in parallel to the main site development. In this case, we built a stand-alone site (m.designworldonline.com) for mobile content. This also provided more control in cross linking other site content and custom advertising options. On special campaigns or product launches, a mobile microsite is very effective since it is built basically from the ground up to be optimized for mobile devices. The challenge with mobile re-direction is that with devices such as the iPad, directing to a mobile version of your site might be sub optimal, as the real estate and function of a tablet is a much different experience. Fortunately the agent varies slightly on tablet devices and code on a site can direct a tablet browser back to the main site, or even another custom coded site specifically for tablets.App Versus Site?There are multiple versions of your Web site to accommodate mobile users and smartphone applications bring up even more considerations. With Design World Magazine and network of over 25 Web sites, we decided an app would be an excellent way to aggregate select content from across many sources. In early 2010 we surveyed our audience and BlackBerry devices came back at the top of use list, so the decision was made to start there first. We then contracted with a developer that ended in a compete failure based in large part on the complexity in app creation for RIM devices. The proliferation of different RIM devices and different programming requirements for the devices convoluted our efforts. In addition, the developer indicated they could program for Apple iOS and the Android platform, so there was some level of distraction.From our first setback, we took a quick look at the market and decided to hit the iPad / iPhone first. When we started we did not anticipate how high the iPad consumption would be, but then no one did. We also decided to do a + App, meaning it would run native for both iPad and iPhone. In the end, our early mistake proved to be a good decision and enabled us to make the right bet with the iPad app development project. With the Design World + App we decided on a third party (Mutual Mobile) team as we lacked the appropriate coding experience internally and Apple has a fair amount of requirements on optimizing applications for audio and video streaming over cellular networks, functionality. Internally we have enough software development expertise to manage the process, but this too can be challenging in writing the specification and keeping features locked in a schedule. Otherwise, feature creep will kill deadlines and budget.While managing our iPad app, we also decided to build our own app for our community site, EngineeringExchange.com. The platform for this site uses a public API (application programming interface), so data can be passed to and from the site via the API. In conjunction with another SaaS site, we were able to spin up a lightweight App for the iPhone using the EngineeringExchange API along with feeds to form the site around blog posts, forums and video. We were able to give members the ability to log into their accounts, update their status and blog post from their iPhones. It took three submissions to the App store to get approved, thereby validating our decision to use an experienced third party on the iPad App. However, we were able to mitigate a rather large expense while continually build a better user experience and capture some intellectual capital. To contrast, the Engineering Exchange App took a total of two months, a fair amount of fixed overhead and a minimum monthly fee to launch and maintain. This also based on having the API and many RSS feeds ready to roll into the app to use as the conduit for data transfer. The Design World + App took over seven months to develop, lots of project management time and so far over $25,000. What’s Next For now, we are on the sidelines with Microsoft. Android is an important player, but code developed for the iPad is not very portable to Android ‘Honeycomb’ apps. The notion of HTML5 may alleviate some issues, but its hard to see convergence anytime soon. HTML5 promises the idea of “develop once, distribute to many” and HTML5 has very media rich features to produce app-like native performance from a Web-based protocol. Apps, however, are firmly entrenched and offer performance advantages, offline advantages and act as a kind of ‘pay-wall’ (for paid apps) that a lot of publishers are seeking.Including a clean, mobile-friendly version of your Web site and smart re-direction based on agent is the overall foundation of any mobile strategy. Looking at applications across various platforms if they fit your business model is essential as the technology is moving fast on this front. Finally, if print is still part of your mix, utilizing QR codes can bridge print to online in an efficient way. Marshall Matheson is SVP of online media at WTWH Media. Mobile advertising in the United States by several estimates will reach a total of $5 billion in 2015. While a large share goes to b-to-c publishers, the trend represents opportunity for b-to-b publishers as well. With all the potential (and potential for confusion) here are a few tips on implementing a mobile strategy, especially if your just now evaluating your mobile plan. Mobilizing your Web SitesOne of the first areas to address with your mobile strategy is with your current Web site. Depending on your site platform(s) and content, this process is relatively simple. As a visitor arrives on your site, you can install code that reads the agent of the visitor. The agent is basically which Web browser, spider or otherwise is hitting the site. If the agent is a Web browser associated with a mobile device, a re-direct to mobile content can be implemented. While the Web browsers on smart phones continue to get better, the real estate presents the limiting factor. So while on the iPhone a standard Web site may look good, browsing, clicking and zooming can present challenges. last_img read more

Porsches Taycan covered 21281 miles in 24 hours at Nardo

first_img Porsche The reason why those figures, especially the average speed and temperature numbers, matter is that electric vehicles have historically had the problem of losing power and efficiency as their battery packs start to heat up with use. That the Taycan was able to maintain such high average speeds over such a long distance at such high ambient temperatures tells us a lot about the level of engineering that Porsche has put into the Taycan.This is part of why we’re so excited for the first all-electric Porsche, even more so than with other carmakers, because there are very few other organizations that have Porsche’s resources, engineering ability and bull-headed commitment to avoiding compromise.Porsche’s Taycan is slated to make its global debut on Sept. 4.  Share your voice 42 Photos Enlarge ImagePorsche’s electric Taycan managed to travel over 2,000 miles in 24 hours at the Nardo test track in Italy. Porsche Everything that Porsche builds has some kind of sporting pretenses as well as a serious commitment to build quality. To see if its first fully-battery electric vehicle, the Taycan, can live up to Porsche buyers’ expectations, the company decided to take it to the Nardo test track in Italy and run it until it broke.Except it didn’t break. Porsche announced on Monday that the Taycan ran for a nearly continuous 2,128.1 miles in 24 hours with breaks only for fast charging and driver changes and was able to maintain an average speed between 121 and 133 mph. And it was able to do that with track temperatures well above 120 degrees and ambient temperatures of up to 107 degrees.

first_img Explore further More information: Fluid flow control with transformation media, Yaroslav A. Urzhumov, David R. Smith, arXiv:1106.2282v1 [physics.flu-dyn] arxiv.org/abs/1106.2282AbstractWe introduce a new concept for the manipulation of fluid flow around three-dimensional bodies. Inspired by transformation optics, the concept is based on a mathematical idea of coordinate transformations, and physically implemented with anisotropic porous media permeable to the flow of fluids. In two different situations – for an impermeable object situated either in a free-flowing fluid or in a fluid-filled porous medium – we show that the object can be coated with a properly chosen inhomogeneous, anisotropic permeable medium, such as to preserve the streamlines of flow and the pressure distribution that would have existed in the absence of the object. The proposed fluid flow cloak completely eliminates any disturbance of the flow by the object, including the downstream wake. Consequently, the structure helps prevent the onset of turbulence by keeping the flow laminar even above the typical critical Reynolds number for the object of the same shape and size. The cloak also cancels the viscous drag force. This concept paves the way to energy-efficient, wake-free propulsion systems, which control and prevent wake formation through a smart spatial distribution of propulsion forces.via PhysicsWorld Citation: Wake cloaking simulated in lab – objects move through water without leaving a trace (2011, July 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-07-cloaking-simulated-lab-.html Velocity pro le and streamlines of flow around and through the porous spherical shell surrounded by a viscous fluid.

The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2010 PhysOrg.com (PhysOrg.com) — Metamaterials researchers Yaroslav Urzhumov and David Smith, working at Duke University have built a simulation of an object that can move through water without leaving a trace and claim it’s a concept that could be built and used in the real world provided more research is done. In their paper, published on arXiv, the two describe how they programmed the use of metamaterials applied to an object, along with tiny water pumps, into a model to simulate an actual object moving through water without dragging some of the water with it that would normally cause turbulence. The two show, by use of a sphere, how an object could be covered with several layers of a mesh of wire or blades, from large ones nearest the object, too much smaller ones farthest away. The idea is to make up for the difference in movement between the object, and the stillness of the water it’s moving through, all while parting the water in ways gentle enough to cause cloaking and then allowing it to reseal after the object passes. The metamaterials provide the cloaking, while pumps are used to move the water at differing speeds in the different layers to keep the water from being dragged along as the object moves through it.The paper comes after what seems like one announcement after another in new cloaking technologies; first an invisibility cloak, then ones that cloaked sound, electric and ocean waves and even a time cloaking device; all are based on new so-called metamateriasl (materials with properties not found in nature).The advantages of the use of such technology are obvious; without drag, boats or submarines could go farther and faster while using less fuel, and if they ran nearly silent in doing so, it would herald the age of new stealth boats and ships that would be difficult if not impossible to detect by enemies looking for them. In the model created, the object was bullet sized and moves just a few millimeters per second, but the authors suggest that if an actual boat was to be made, it might make more sense to try to reduce just the drag, rather than try to hide the wake as well, as that would likely be much easier to actually make. The authors do not plan to try to build a real world boat, due they say, to lab constraints, but suggest a collaboration with another facility might be feasible.

Funny side up

first_imgIt is widely believed that comedy is a genre that is the most difficult to master and perform. It is even more challenging in the sphere of performing arts. To elicit laughter from a specific audience takes a great deal of talent, charisma and impeccable comic timing. The cast of One on One Part 2, who performed in the Siri Fort auditorium on Sunday managed to have the audience in splits.In order to stay relevant in an age where the cinema viewing experience is growing by leaps and bounds, theatre has to re-invent itself and that is precisely what One on One Part 2 attempted to do. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’A far cry from the type of theatre we are accustomed to, this act presented a series of monologues to its audiences which served as a commentary to various social issues ranging from the trials of a married woman who struggles with motherhood to the futility of war along with the aftermath of the tragic Nepal earthquake, the tribulations of a ticket checker stuck at a job at a place where the citizens think they are above the law and the aspirations of a girl who initially wanted to get married but after the act realises she has made a grave mistake.  The sketches were predominantly comical, but had an underlying social message. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWith the right mix of veteran talents and fresh blood, the acting aspect of the play was top notch. Headlined by notable names such as Rajit Kapoor, Anu Menon( of Lola Kutty fame), Neil Bhoopalam( NH10, Shaitan, No One Killed Jessica) and lesser known faces such as Shikha Talsania, Gopal Dutt and Sumeet  Vyas, the pace of the play never slackened. Shikha as the new bride who develops cold feet after marriage was a revelation while Gopal Dutt as the ticket checker displayed immense comic abilities. However, the real star of the show was Sumeet Vyas who essayed roles of an army man as well as a first-time producer with aplomb. His depiction of a producer who is constantly heckled by the director, the assistant director, the superstar as well as the spot boy was a treat to watch as it was tinged in realism. Neil Bhoopalam, Anu Menon and Rajit Kapoor also left an indelible mark on the audience with their measured performances.Directed by a host of directors like Rahul DaCunha, Rajit Kapoor, Nadir Khan, Sumeet Vyas, Ashish Jagtiani and Hussain Dalal, there was never any doubt about the credibility of the act and it sure didn’t disappoint. With such innovative ideas getting incorporated in contemporary theatre, it’s no wonder it still commands a certain amount of following, even in this age of three-dimensional films.last_img read more

first_img“This proposal to make horticultural production an Environmentally Relevant Activity (an ERA) would restrict future horticultural development and sends the wrong message to our rural communities. It shows the Queensland Government is not supporting future rural economic development.”If introduced, the ABGC has told the government the provisions would result in serious profitability and sustainability issues on grazing land within existing banana farms and on other land that has been bought for the production of bananas or other horticulture.On top of that, they would hinder future innovation and diversification in the banana industry that directly and indirectly supports 18,000 jobs in North Queensland and has a flow-on value of AUD$1.2 billion (US$844 million), says the council.The ABGC notes that it understands and welcomes the need for measures to protect the Great Barrier Reef. The banana industry has worked closely with the Department of Environment and Science on proposed minimum sediment and nutrient standards and has a range of initiatives in place to improve farm practices and water quality, it adds.The ABGC suggests that, instead of the proposed ERA, the new minimum nutrient and sediment standards be applied to all existing freehold land, regardless of whether it has previously been developed for horticulture.No matter the parcel of land or its history, the ABGC comments that this approach will best complement existing Best Management Practice farming systems.This is the best way to achieve the desired result of no net decline in the quality of water entering the Great Barrier Reef, it emphasizes.“The proposed ERA simply seems to ignore the realities of farming – be it varying climates, the fact that most banana growers have diversified to combat natural disasters and disease, or even just the longterm planning involved in keeping a farming business afloat,” Lowe says.“I know many growers would happily welcome representatives onto their farms to demonstrate the very real ways decisions like this could affect farming into the future.” Australia: Massive hail storm rips through NSW avo … You might also be interested in July 15 , 2019 Australia: Costa Group upbeat for 2019 despite pro … center_img Tasmanian researcher investigates delicate balance … The Australian Banana Growers’ Council (ABGC) has voiced concerns over a proposal by the local Queensland Government to implement additional regulations to better protect the Great Barrier Reef.The ABGC said the new policies could ‘devastate’ its industry by regulating the land they already own.It would classify new horticultural development – on both current and future banana farms – as a new Agricultural Environmentally Relevant Activity (ERA), requiring farmers to implement “expensive and impractical measures”.The provisions fail to take into account location, landscape or climatic conditions, the ABGC adds.It is the ABGC’s firm belief that they would not only have a negative impact on banana growing, but fail to do anything further for the Reef.“Though we have tried to communicate this to the Queensland Government both in writing and face-to-face, it would appear that our views on the development of current grazing land in North Queensland are either not understood or are simply being ignored,” ABGC chair Stephen Lowe says.“The Government’s proposal is to restrict new horticultural development on land that has not had horticulture or other crops on it three years out of the last 10, with at least one of these in the last five years.
