This is a fascinating science story the first flexible fiberoptic solar cells that can be woven into clothes are being developed this is but on international team of engineers this is a physicists and chemists were developed the first five rocket solar cell these are their they human hair they're flexible and they produce electricity just like a normal solar cell the us military is of course already interested in the zipping about weeding them into clothing it's almost like a wearable power source as you walk around your equipment is powered literally by the sun think about all of.
These other ideas i mean you could weave this stuff into a building right i mean you you could literally we've this into a building in the building itself is powered by the sun heated clothing right and evaluate this idea i know you're often very harsh about potential new technologies you consider them either stupid or just not practical are unlikely to come to fruition evaluate this one it seems like a reasonable idea but uh. generally speaking in the future we're going to have batteries that are much smaller and much more powerful.
Which will probably eliminate the need for something like this will go where will the battery be charged from you still need to charge that battery and using the son could be a great idea let me give you an example a cellphone the battery in the cellphone might get smaller and smaller and last longer and longer fine but what if you had a baseball hat with these fibers warning and you can plug that reading to your phone and charge it off of you have yes it seems interesting but like i said i think i think with her just.
Technologies that were not thinking of that will make this obsolete evaluate this on a scale of one to ten one being completely worth of spending the most interesting idea you've ever heard to louis this scale with everything's below a fiveweek what's the latest are doing with the latest eight that we've talked about on the ship the latest a yeah are now i've got a good one on tomorrow's gonna show that ok have a very good he's worked as a list of any tends to lose any pens.

Windows 10 Review, top new features!
Hello welcome to the Gadget Tube today I'll be taking an early look at the new Windows 10 features and seeing whether you should be upgrading on the 29th July now one of the great big features of windows 10 is actually an old feature they've brought back the start bar which is amazing because nobody liked using the touch interface especially on a desktop or laptop without a touch screen one of the great new features in this start bar is the new search functionality which includes cortana which is a new.
Speech search function a lot like Siri and a lot like Google now, but built into Windows they've also included a windowed mode for Metro apps, so the apps that normally used to click, and open up fullscreen and take you away from your desktop now open from within a window just like any other app now within the start bar you also have the live tiles now you might be familiar with this if you remember it from windows 8 when you had the full screen live tiles now they've included them within the start bar and you can resize.
And move them around to your heart's content and fortunately you don't have to go completely full screen tablet mode to use them there's a new Action Center which comes with lots of Quick buttons at the bottom which are really handy and accessible I found these quite useful when just generally using the computer. Now the file explorer won't look too different to you but one thing Microsoft are trying to push is one drive system a lot like Dropbox or Google Drive they're trying to integrate in with the system trying to get you to sign up as soon as you.
Install Windows the control panel has now become the Settings app but if you can't find what you're looking for because it's all changed and its all a bit strange you can just use the search functionality to search exactly, what you want to change Now finally Microsoft have updated Internet Explorer.err well technically they haven't they've just shipped with a new browser called project Spartan, this is a much leaner, much faster browser a lot like Chrome and Firefox one my favourite features on Windows 7 and 8 was the Snap feature which allowed you to split your screen between two apps.
The great thing about the new updated version of this in Windows 10 is you can snap to one side and it will allow you to pick a certain app if you've got several apps open or even snap into quarters if you've got a really high res display to add onto this feature they've also included task view which is a lot like Mission Control or expose if you're used to that in the Mac world, which basically just gives you multiple desktops which is really useful if you're using this on something with a smaller lower res screen like a laptop.
Now as well as all these visual features Microsoft added a few more things under the hood to help make things a little bit easier and a little bit quicker For you gamers out there Windows 10 will come shipped with direct x12 which apparently improves battery performance by fifty percent and can improve FPS by up to 60 percent couple of new formats supported natively in the system are FLAC audio and the HEVC codec which is capable of 8k tutorial. And one final feature that some people will be like finally!.
Is copy and paste with in command prompt you can now control and V within command prompt if you just wanna copy a command prompt into command prompt. So now you've seen all these new features should you upgrade on the 29th July I've definitely enjoy using Windows 10 having the proper start bar back and having the system work within the desktop rather than try and jump out to the Metro interface has been a big improvement. On a computer that's a bit more missioncritical like my editing computer which is currently running Windows 7, I might.
2012 Review JPMN
2012 was released last November, after what seemed like years of teasers and trailers eventually going on to gross almost 800 million dollars worldwide. The plot to this one is real simple in the near future, solar flares from the sun are melting the earth from the insideout, causing massive earthquakes, continentsized tsunamis all of which wreck spectacular death and havoc on earth's puny inhabitants. Luckily for us, Emmerich provides us with a couple of poorly developed cookiecutter meatbags to experience the action with, as they both simultaneously run from, and try to figure out these global disasters that.
Are destroying every famous landmark I've ever been to. The notable exception however was Woody Harrelson's character as the wackjob conspiracytheorist and pirateradio DJ that ends up being correct about all that end of the world nonsense. As useless as it is, the story and explanation behind 2012 is decently believable. the actions and escapes the main characters make however are anything but. Suspended disbelief is required for any film like this, and I'm okay with John Cusack outrunning a pending natural threat in an airplane. but when that same sequence is unbelievably repeated another TWO times.
And one third time in an RV. you start to lose faith in whatever reality this movie was hoping to create. That being said though, the who and why in this film are really inconsequential the real reason anyone watches any blockbuster disaster film is to watch attractive people outrun shockwaves, and to see famous landmarks destroyed in utterly awesome computer generated ways. And on that front, 2012 absolutely delivers in spades. going so far as to destroy famous landmarks with other famous landmarks. The Santa Monica Peir, the Vegas Strip, the Himayaln.
Mountains, the White House, Yellowstone National Park are all given proper sendoffs, even if the geography and spatial orientation doesn't make sense in half of them. This problem isn't new for Emmerich though, in Independence Day he relocated the Empire State Building to the end of 8th avenue. and in 2012 he decided to relocate hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. The film's middleact definitely tends to drag, as it's just one suspensefilled disaster sequence after another with very little time given to character development or even intercharacter dialogue. Mixing elements from Titanic, The Poseidon Adventure, and.
All of Emmerich's previous films 2012 finds its climax late, and it surprisingly doesn't disappoint. Curiously though, a movie fraught with death and disaster ends on a uncharacteristic upbeat, which I felt was awfully shameless given the near sixbillion humans that died during the film. I just wish I would have gotten the chance to see Manhattan get hit and flooded by a giant tidal wave. oh he already made that movie Oh well! Anyway, that's what I thought about the film 2012 now let's here your thoughts. TheCatandOwlandBat An actionpacked movie with great special effects and graphics. It.
Had gore, suspense, and thrill in almost every scene. Though, it failed to fully develop the characters or have an easy to understand plot or story behind it, if any at all. 710. rhn94 Great special effects and CGI , but it had a loose storyline. I watched it hoping for a lot but came out disappointed. John Cusack's acting was bad as usual. I'll give it a 510 for the CGI. Okay now that we've both shared our thoughts let's fire up the RateOMatic to see how 2012 ranked. An even SIX! As truly awful, predictable, and as bad as this film actually.

USDA Week In Review October 23
Jet fuel from wood. Hunger as a health issue. And disability mentoring day. Those stories and more in USDA Week In Review. National Bioenergy Day was a great day to talk about jets using biofuel made from wood. It would be the result of collaboration between USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Washington State University and the private sector. Take basically this almost worthless slash from the roadsides of the lumber roads of Weyerhaeuser, transport it to an area where it can be processed and converted into sugars and those sugars can then be made into jet fuel. Alaska Air is planning a demonstration.
Flight using the new jet fuel for next year. Goldner says increasing bioenergy production would be a boon for rural areas and the environment. There's going to be some very good high paying jobs that are going to be created. There's going to be a manufacturing base that's going to be created. From a reduction of greenhouse gas and protecting the environment it'll be terrific. For more information check out the USDA blog Fueling our Future, from Wood to Wing. Hunger is a public health issue says Agriculture Under Secretary Kevin.
Concannon. Eating healthy food is a major part of supporting one's own health and quality of life. Concannon says USDA nutrition programs help alleviate hunger but adds that additional creative and innovative programs are needed to solve hunger in the US. We need to be realistic, too, to recognize that there are people among us who are struggling and we need to do more in that regard to say what else do we need to do to really make sure we don't have that food insecurity. In TwentyFourteen USDA estimated that.
Fourteen percent of US households are food insecure. It was Disability Mentoring Day at USDA's TARGET Center where potential mentees from DC area high schools and colleges heard from potential mentors about employment opportunities at USDA. I'm really interested in making my skills better and improving my skills and I want to see how the Department helps people with disabilities, so I want to improve my skills that way to help people with disabilities myself. USDA TARGET Center officials say the mentoring program is an opportunity to attract new talent to the Department. Being able to come here and to have a mentoring.
Program allows the students to be able to see we have several different jobs that are possible for you to perform and you may find something that really meets your interests. The TARGET Center provides services related to improving accessibility and contributing to the complete employment experience of people with disabilities. And in this week's Photo of the Week, solar panels installed Vergennes verjennz, Vermont, as part of USDA's Rural Energy for America Program, or REAP. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently announced nearly two point three billion dollars in loans to build and improve rural electric.
