Profiting from Nonprofits? The Sale of Dot-Org

You’re probably familiar with websites that end in .org, which is one of the original domain names that the Internet started out with back in the 1980s.  Historically, it was used to distinguish nonprofit organizations from those whose URL ends with .com, which presumably were in it for the money.  That distinction is no longer observed, as anyone with enough money and an idea for a .org domain name that nobody’s thought of yet can get one, profit or no…

NASA planet hunter finds Earth-size habitable-zone world — ScienceDaily

NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has discovered its first Earth-size planet in its star’s habitable zone, the range of distances where conditions may be just right to allow the presence of liquid water on the surface. Scientists confirmed the find, called TOI 700 d, using NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and have modeled the planet’s potential environments to help inform future observations. TOI 700 d is one of only a few Earth-size planets discovered in a star’s habitable zone so…

A new mom’s guide to pumping milk while traveling for work

Recently, I deployed a human to production. Shipped at 11 lbs 3 oz, he rapidly doubled in size in his first six months. At Cloudflare, I run the Developer Relations team, and my first quarter back from parental leave, I had 3 business trips: 2 international, 1 domestic. As an exclusive breastfeeder, this means solving the logistical puzzle of moving a large quantity of milk home, to the tune of 40-50 oz (1200 – 1500 mL) per day given the…

Engineering Graduates Prepared to Make Their Mark

Mizzou Engineering graduates gathered for a group photo before Commencement ceremonies began Dec. 13 at the Hearnes Center. College of Engineering Dean Elizabeth Loboa told 272 graduating seniors that engineering lives on the frontiers of science and technology, and their mission—as engineers, as scientists and as researchers is to go into the world and extend the frontiers of knowledge. The College held its 2019 Commencement ceremonies Dec. 13 in the Hearnes Center. Dean Elizabeth Loboa speaks to Mizzou Engineering graduates…

New Wearable Sensor Detects Gout and Other Medical Conditions

High-energy arcing faults or flashes are high-power electrical discharges between two or more conductors; they can release tens of thousands of amps of current and occur very quickly. They can also cause explosions with temperatures of 63,000°F (35,000°C), about the temperature of lightning strikes, vaporizing steel and spewing hot metal particles into the air. To learn more about this phenomena—and perhaps, how to prevent it—researchers at Sandia National Laboratory are using high-speed cameras and advanced imaging and analytic methods to…

Global Outreach: MU Professor’s International Collaborations

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Professor Sanjeev Khanna A Mizzou Engineering professor says workshops he has conducted in India have led to a number of collaborative research projects with other scientists. Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Professor Sanjeev Khanna, Director of the Midwest Industrial Assessment Center, recently presented a one-week long national workshop in Allahabad, India on “Materials Behavior and Characterization under Dynamic Loading Conditions.” The workshop was hosted by the Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology (MNNIT) and was attended by…

Researchers develop thin heat shield for superfast aircraft — ScienceDaily

The world of aerospace increasingly relies on carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites to build the structures of satellites, rockets and jet aircraft. But the life of those materials is limited by how they handle heat. A team of FAMU-FSU College of Engineering researchers from Florida State University’s High-Performance Materials Institute is developing a design for a heat shield that better protects those extremely fast machines. Their work will be published in the November edition of Carbon. “Right now, our flight…

Army Ants Share Passion for Robotics

The Army Ants helped 22 aspiring engineers in building and programming robots that the campers got to take home with them. The College of Engineering sponsored a full-day robotics camp for underrepresented and economically-disadvantaged youth in central Missouri Oct. 31. Army Ants is made up of local high school students who design robots to complete specific tasks outlined by FIRST Robotics, an organization responsible for putting on regional and national robot competitions in order to build interest in STEM nationwide…

PCB Assembly Services – Screaming Circuits: Buddy the Board Takes a Trip

All of our assembly work for Screaming Circuits takes place right here in Canby, Oregon and most of our blank PCBs are built by Sunstone Circuits, ten miles away, in Mulino, Oregon. But that doesn’t mean that we aren’t a global company. We have engineering, web development and creative services here in Canby, at some of our other North American locations, and in India. Having help on the other side of the world (not exactly on the other side, but…
