  1. What's new in this club
  2. "An energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices or sensors," said Paul Thibado, professor of physics and lead researcher in the discovery. The findings, published in the journal Physical Review E, are proof of a theory the physicists developed at the U of A three years ago that freestanding graphene—a single layer of carbon atoms—ripples and buckles in a way that holds promise for energy harvesting. The idea of harvesting energy from graphene is controversial because it refutes physicis
  3. The guy who wrote The Graduate—the book, not the movie—gave away all the money he made from writing it. He bought a house with his one-time movie rights. He gave it away within weeks—he would give three away during his lifetime—a lifetime that ended July 2020, He was 81. The movie ‘The Graduate’ was a sensation—the highest grossing film of 1967, with seven academy award nominations. It is fussed over to this day for capturing the “alienation of modern youth”—though they are not so modern anymore, have long since put their alienation behind them, and many have done quite well for themselve
  4. Only 10%.... wow.... Although I read that newspapers and cardboard also don't biodegrade when buried deep in landfill either. All that ink must be toxic too?
  5. I have just one word of advice for you: “Plastics,” said the parent’s comfortable friend to Benjamin Braddock. Plastics—the new growth field in 1967, the year The Graduate movie came out—just as computers and then the internet would be to succeeding generations. Plastics—a graduate could make a killing in it. But Ben didn’t want any career advice just then. Just out of college, with no goals at all, the only thing he knew is that he wanted no part of the phony monied world that had been his upbringing. He lolled around aimless at his folks’ upper crust home that year and ended up in an af
  6. Is Microsoft THAT desperate for money that they can't offer just an ad at the top? I think I might be spotting an opening for competition here. Google is currently only placing 3 on top and 3 on the bottom of search results. Sigh...
  7. Does Visual Studio 2019 do what SSMS 18 can do or should I stick to learning SSMS 18 to create and work with SQL databases?
  8. As the world becomes more electrified, the race is on to build cheaper, longer-lasting, more energy-dense batteries. One of the most promising technologies in this space is the solid state battery, developed by an absolute legend in the battery world, one of the inventors of the lithium ion battery and recent Nobel Prize winner John B. Goodenough.
  9. ummm.... 10% in 170 years!?!?! Is anyone else doing the math here? so in another millennium solar winds could potentially decimate all life and atmosphere on Earth? Please tell me I'm mistaken. I guess it won't affect any of us reading this though... so there is that.
  10. This was the first public broadcast by RCA corporation, in the United States, in 1936. The first regular electronic television service in Germany began in Berlin on March 22, 1935, as Deutscher Fernseh Rundfunk. Broadcasting from the Fernsehsender Paul Nipkow, it used a 180-line system, and was on air for 90 minutes, three times a week. Very few receivers were ever privately owned, and viewers went instead to Fernsehstuben (television parlors). There is more to the story, worth researching.
  11. Yeah ... I HATED that headset! Oh! Oh .... um ... head START! ...... Um .... nevermind.
