Scaling Christmas — An Illustrated Adventure – Square Corner Blog – Medium

The lemurs are back! This time they’ve come for a special Christmas-themed adventure about how Christmas scales, using practical lessons in holiday operations. Now let’s see what they’re up to today. Meet Red You may have already met Red some time in the past from other talks and events. For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, Red is a magical lemur. He’s also particularly fond of Christmas, especially presents. Every year he sends Santa a letter, like clockwork.…

A new study shows what nine different world regions have contributed to climate change since 1900, and what will happen moving forward — ScienceDaily

The science is clear that human activities over the last century have contributed to greenhouse-like warming of the Earth’s surface. Much of the global conversation around climate change fixates on what individual countries or regions are contributing to the problem, and what they will do (or not do) to reverse the tide. But Colorado State University’s A.R. Ravishankara, University Distinguished Professor who holds joint appointments in the departments of chemistry and atmospheric science, says the full picture is longer and…

Serverless Use Cases and Best Practices

Cloudflare Workers has had a very busy 2018. Throughout the year, Workers moved from beta to general availability, continued to expand its footprint as Cloudflare grew to 155 locations, and added new features and services to help developers create increasingly advanced applications. To cap off 2018 we decided hit the road (and then head to the airport) with our Real World Serverless event series in San Francisco, Austin, London, Singapore, Sydney, and Melbourne. It was a great time sharing serverless…

Screaming Circuits: Downsizing with SnapEDA

Earlier this year we built the electronic badges for the Open Source Hardware Summit. The badge was very nice as is, but I extended it with a LiPoly battery pack of my own design. The badges were assembled in our shop here, so they look great (except where I modded mine). The LiPoly board, however, was hand soldered by me at home. I don’t have anywhere near the skill that our technicians do, but I still like to build stuff…

By Jonathan Levi As one of Uber’s summer 2018 interns, I could not have been more excited to work on the technologies used by my friends and family on the Uber platform every day. Working on a computer science degree, I applied for a summer internship at Uber as a means of getting real, hands-on experience. The path that led me to…

Mizzou IMSE to offer online master’s degree next fall

IMSE recently received approval from the University of Missouri to offer an online master’s degree in industrial engineering beginning in Fall 2019. Mizzou Engineering’s online educational offerings continue to grow at a rapid pace, and the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering  is at the forefront. The department recently received approval from the University of Missouri to offer an online master’s degree in industrial engineering (MSIE) beginning in Fall 2019. MSIE, a master’s degree program in biological engineering and…

Has Human Gene Editor Been Edited Himself?

Dr. Jiankue He of the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, China, claims to have used a gene-editing technology called CRISPR/Cas9 to edit the genes of twin girls in order to make the babies resistant to the AIDS virus carried by their father.  When news of his experiment leaked out, scientists and governments around the world attacked him for doing what is widely viewed as an unethical experiment.  After Dr. He tried to defend himself at a Human…

Maximize Earned Publicity with These Tips

You finally got exposure from a well-known blog and publication. All the traffic and conversion that publicity invites is definitely exciting, but how you leverage that is going to determine whether that success is just a one-off thing. Indeed, when it comes to maximising your time in the limelight, your next steps will either reinforce that exposure or waste it. Here are tips on how you can use that exposure to grow your business even further. Let Everyone in Your…

Fighting fire with cutting-edge technology

The goal of the project is to develop a system that uses multiple UAVs to make accurate predictions on the fire spread path and deliver real-time results. Part of the difficulty in fighting wildfires is the inability to accurately predict their path of destruction. A Mizzou Engineering researcher is working to solve this critical problem. Ming Xin, an associate professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, is partnering with researchers from the University of Kansas and Georgia State University on “Collaborative…

The inexpensive new material can split water just as efficiently as costly platinum — ScienceDaily

A cheap and effective new catalyst developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, can generate hydrogen fuel from water just as efficiently as platinum, currently the best — but also most expensive — water-splitting catalyst out there. The catalyst, which is composed of nanometer-thin sheets of metal carbide, is manufactured using a self-assembly process that relies on a surprising ingredient: gelatin, the material that gives Jell-O its jiggle. “Platinum is expensive, so it would be desirable to find…
