I bet in 20 years would be called "Moore's Age" and will appear in (Digital only) History textbook.

That for me is the most pitiful bit of this charade. Getting a random tourist and put them in a kangaroo court that serves dead penalties like candies ( I took them 1 hour total to change the 15 years for a death sentence...) instead of their economic muscle makes them looks like monsters and weak.
I assumed that they call IBM to tell the the bloody obvious just as a PR exercise, like a action to say everyone:" You see, we take this seriously and we call someone that everyone* knows is** a serious IT expert"
* everyone outside the IT world.
** Not, it is not since eons.
Well, if it was traveling at ~1/2c speed, the asteroid upon impact will be dumping around 0.15 of the equivalent of its rest mass as ENERGY. With 2gr/cm3 average density on asteroids and a volume of a ~1 meter radius sphere being 4.2m3, that is a rest mass of 8.4 tons. The energy release will be ~1.1 10^20 Joules or ~27000 Megatons...
6400 megatons is the estimated yield of the nuclear global arsenal on year 2009 which is a 4.2 ratio.
" The Post reports that the messaging system offers a drop-down menue two options: "'Test missile alert' and 'Missile alert'." Whoever sent the message chose the latter instead of the former, with now-well-known results."
Rather than choosing, i would guess that the operator arrive at the desk a few minutes earlier with his morning coffee and miss-click due to him not to be fully acclimatised to the mouse DPI setting (being there, done that).
The option to send a whole state to "kiss goodbye your own arse mode" by a click on a drop down menu without confirmation, genius design.
"Do more with less – CIOs need to seriously rethink how to not just consolidate within a silo, but how to eliminate silos altogether."
This brings me the image of Zen mystics levitating on lotus posture on the middle of an empty basement room where previously the old servers were.A wide beam of pure white coming from the heavens energising his chakras and from his body the Sysadmin Zen Master emitting multicoloured waves on every direction, gently touching the now naked data ports on walls and ceiling.
Yeah, i already found the "magic" stash of the guy that drop that sentence... Happy Xmass
stack of graphene and silicene techno-wizardry combine with nanotubes coduits and "on the chip" dynamic (fast moving fluids) heat transfer solution is my bet for the future.
we still are at infancy on term of internal heat transfer solution that is at the end of the day the main physical limitation.
Basically those guys think because USA has a ESTIMATE increase of "ALTERNATIVE" oil production of about 300k barrel/day this year, and there is some shabby production increase on not so impressive overall wells production (North Dakota i'm looking at you), the PARABOLIC INCREASE on global oil demand can be fed and and prices therefore sustained.
The paper, issued by a financial conglomerate, is designed to attack investor, not as scientific paper. It is full of "hard" data (real information) mix with "soft" data ( estimations) floating on a sea of wish-thinking speculation and hype. As a scientific paper lacks of structured, rigour and a clear separation between FACTS, ANALYSIS and CONCLUSIONS.
They maybe right, but there is nothing in the paper to corroborate that.
Did the opposite that the Left predicted... instead of been a new force of colonialism, it is a inverse colonialism... where the west is the one getting economically drained and its inequality levels between poor and rich start to go toward something not far from a banana republic state of matters.
"Post-industrialism" it is a flop, not a positive and favourable evolution.
perpetual motion requires an efficiency => 1 , you can "break" theoretically Carnot law for Heat Engines without breaking the Thermodynamic Law that disallows you to construct a perpetual motion machine...
my comment points that the shown mechanism is (from a abstract point) a heat engine and, with the given information, no even a lower tier law that is specific for heat engines is broken...
that does not count with the clumsy mismatch of dislike physical parameters, like Voltage and Energy, a type of misinformation only perceptible for people that already know about the subject and easily can confuse other people's understanding.
I see 1 hot source, 1 cold sink and some POTENTIAL energy production.... unless the work done it is more efficient than the efficiency described by
efficiency=1-(Temperature cold sink in Kelvin/Temperature hot source in Kelvin)
Carnot can continue resting happily on the collective conscience imaginary afterword commonly called heaven.
The plan of merging operation of The Sun and NotW was already rolling even before this week outcry, nothing is lost there but the toxic brand. The implementation of the future "Sunday Sun" is highly possible.
The incredible thing is that Rebekah B. still under full protection from Murdoch....
A solution, currently use already as cold end of thermal nuclear interstellar devises, is to have a nice big heat-sink on the shadow side of the craft.
A shielded from the sun area of inter-planetary space is really cold indeed ( nights on the moon get about -180 Celsius degrees ).
Of course, the wasted heat energy damped will only scape by radiative meanings, due the lack of air, but still it will work.
it's that they are taking those measures and calling criminal to wikileaks, without a court order/sentence, just because some primate politicians have some opinions.
basically no court order are need to you be economically killed, only the will of the big companies to bend to the MAN.
can you not see the subtle difference between state organizations and his members and your/mine friends and family?
is call POWER.
simpleton patriots like you always forget that those who seek power and hold power can have hidden(not as in conspiracy theories but more like untold clearly on public) agendas only share by small elite collective.
US is right now a two-head oligarchy, not far from Russian and Chinese one head oligarchy, only your constitutional rights makes the real difference.
that is the real danger for USA, every time for grandstanding or for fear-mongering, your constitutional right are reduce, USA is less the land of Freedom. Each year i can see more and more Americans willing to sacrifice those rights and less caring about to export those right to others nation people.
the tidal locking of the voting system has make your voting right already a mockery of what should be; only public perception has a limited power to drive politicians toward the general interest. that is the last bastion of democratic power in USA and only through deep perception the public will know what is happening behind the propaganda smokescreen and force them (because you don't really decide who is in power, you only chose between the already chosen, their natural will is to favor the elite) to do good.
you don't need wikileaks if you already are willing to give up your right for freedom and peace,
many already has unconsciously done that already.
sorry but you know that by law Spaniards pay a tax money for any digital recording/storage system EVEN if you don't going use it for illegal downloads?
and that money going to the Spanish Ass.?
and after all you still can be prosecute for file-sharing?
there is not the facto freetard in Spain. every hard drive or blank CD/DVD bough has already paid something to the Ass.
"Pilots were warned that they would have to fly even with faulty ejection seats in the event of any hostile incursion into UK airspace, but fortunately this did not occur."
yes, fortunately not because heath and safety of the pilots, more because hostile incursion on those term will be something more serious like a 9/11 type-event or a starting WW III.
btw, how good was the ejecting system of those spitfire?
