For that, you want a computer that’s cheap but, even more importantly, one that bends. “It needs to move with you and not pop off,” Myers says. A number of materials could theoretically meet those needs. Researchers have built transistors from organic materials and designed substrates—that’s the wafer the transistors go into—out of metal foils and even paper. The chip Myers’ team described Wednesday is composed of “thin-film transistors” made from metal oxides—a mix of indium, gallium, and zinc—that can be made thinner than their silicon counterparts. The substrate is polyimide, a kind of

Making travel plans is tricky even in the best of times, but the pandemic and its lingering effects have made things even more complicated. Whether you're going halfway around the world or planning a trip much closer to home, your smartphone can be a huge help. You probably already use your phone to get you from A to B as quickly as possible, but Google Maps, Apple Maps, and other apps can do much more than this—they can put together a proper itinerary for

A Novel Up-date Concerning Traffic

In both cases borrowers nearing default might seek to liquidate other assets. The extent of leverage in the system is hard to gauge; the dozen exchanges that list perpetual swaps are all unregulated. But “open interest”, the total amount in derivatives contracts outstanding at any one time, provides an idea of the direction of travel, says Kyle Soska of Carnegie Mellon University. This has grown from $1.6bn in March 2020 to $24bn today. It is not a perfect proxy for total leverage, as it is not clear how much collateral stands behind the various contracts. But forced liquidations of leveraged

The Rudiments Concerning Travel

Education officials propose new ‘test and stay’ COVID protocol for schools WEST SPRINGFIELD, MASS. (WWLP) – State education officials plan to use a new COVID testing protocol that aims to keep students and staff in classrooms, even if they might have been exposed to the virus. Close contacts will get rapid tests in school. The idea is that this will prevent having to quarantine and miss school. The protocol is called “test and stay.” Asymptomatic individuals who have had close contact with a confirmed infection will take a rapid test every day for at least five days while remaining in schools.

Nick Mott, editor of the Montana Public Radio podcast, Fireline, sat down with NPR to talk about the role climate change is playing in the west's worsening fire seasons. NOTE: This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity. Fire season is getting longer because of climate change? People who study the natural world say it is. Like Cathy Whitlock, a paleoecologist at Montana State University . "I would say 95% of it's climate driven," she told me. That 95% number is definitely the subject of lots of debate. But she thinks it's the right number because she's been looking back at th

Tips On How Facilities Can Reduce Water Consumption One of the most startling developments caused by the excessive heat this summer in California, Oregon, and Washington state is that thousands of shellfish are dying. This has happened in the past, but nothing like it is happening now. "This is just one more example of how this summer is turning into a game changer when it comes to heat and, along with it, drought," says Klaus Reichardt, CEO and founder of Waterless Co., Inc. "The worst of the drought has not arrived, but unfortunately, it's right around the corner." Because of this, Reichardt

A New Up-date About Finance

Many of these shortcomings relate to the legal requirement under LOLER to subject all lifting equipment to regular ‘thorough examination’. Broadly speaking, this is designed to determine whether equipment is fit for the coming period of service. However, while there are still organisations that fail to grasp the basics, the key problem often lies not so much in a failure to implement a proper programme of thorough examinations but in placing too great a reliance on such procedures to ensure the continuing safety and integrity of lifting devices. Anyone with a degree of familiarity with the
