Use a .dev domain? Not anymore. – Medium Engineering

A long time ago, in a network, far far away, a great adventure took place! Out of the chaos of new ideas for communication, the experiments, the tentative designs, and crucible of testing, there emerged a cornucopia of networks. Beginning with the ARPANET, an endless stream of networks evolved, and ultimately were interlinked to become the Internet.” RFC 2468, Part 1 Before the internet, before domain names, and before I was born, there was the ARPANET — the little network that could.…

The same is true for loudspeakers.…

Building your own CryptoCurrency using Hyperledger Fabric

In our previous posts, we discussed BlockChain and presented the comprehensive Blockchain developer’s guide along with its use cases, especially mentioning how the rise of cryptocurrencies made the term ‘BlockChain’ a synonymous term to it. We also discussed a systematic approach to an enterprise blockchain solution by understanding foundation pillars involved and key modules for all significant requirements. In this blog, we will learn about creating cryptocurrencies using the IBM Blockchain Hyperledger Fabric Network consisting of two organizations each maintaining two…

Airbag prevents tanker trucks from tipping over

Credit: University of Twente Dr Erik Eenkhoorn has designed a system that can secure liquid loads, making the transport of bulk liquids much safer. Inflatable components prevent tanker trucks from tipping over, and reduce fuel consumption, as well. Erik Eenkhoorn recently graduated from the University of Twente with a thesis on this design. According to the graduate, the existing legislation is part of the reason for countless accidents involving tanker trucks. There are strict rules for securing a solid load,…

Identifying optimal adaptation of buildings threatened by hurricanes, climate change

The need for adaptation strategies to reduce the threat of hurricanes to society is of critical importance, as evidenced by the recent damage to coastal regions in the U.S. and the Caribbean this past year. The fact that the number of residential buildings in coastal areas has increased significantly combined with the impacts of climate change means that the increase in hurricane intensity and frequency is likely to continue. According to Dan M. Frangopol, the Fazlur R. Khan Endowed Chair…

To keep your devices safe, here’s what you need to know about AVGater and antivirus protection. What AVGater Allows Before you can…

Turning carbon dioxide into fuel and useful chemicals — ScienceDaily

MIT researchers have developed a new system that could potentially be used for converting power plant emissions of carbon dioxide into useful fuels for cars, trucks, and planes, as well as into chemical feedstocks for a wide variety of products. The new membrane-based system was developed by MIT postdoc Xiao-Yu Wu and Ahmed Ghoniem, the Ronald C. Crane Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and is described in a paper in the journal ChemSusChem. The membrane, made of a compound of lanthanum,…
