Top 8 Best Tools for Flash Drive Data Recovery on Windows 10

Recovering files from your Flash Drive is not an easy task until and unless you leverage a reliable flash drive data recovery software. However, the options that we have are innumerable; therefore, the blog highlights top 8 flash drive data recovery software for Windows 10. The majority of us use Flash drive to store data because they are compact, durable, fits right into our pocket, is easy to carry and use. Nothing is worse than losing data stored on Flash…

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…

New Antivirus Vulnerability Could Help Malware Spread

This is why I have trust issues: A newly discovered vulnerability in antivirus software could be used to infiltrate victims’ computers. The exploit, dubbed AVGater by its researcher Florian Bogner, has already been patched by the most powerful antivirus providers, including Trend Micro, but users who have failed to install the latest updates likely remain vulnerable to attack. 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,…

Identifying optimal adaptation of buildings threatened by hurricanes, climate change — ScienceDaily

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 increasing risks of impacts of due climate change means that the cost of damage to coastal developments are likely to continue to rise. According to Dan M. Frangopol,…

Pollinators use multiple cues to identify flowers across continents — ScienceDaily

Although at least 75% of our crop species depend on the activities of wild pollinators, little is known about their flower preferences. As global populations of domestic bee pollinators decline, it is of utmost importance for us to understand what factors attract wild pollinators such as hoverflies to flowers, and how these preferences differ in the face of environmental change. Now, a team of scientists from Uppsala and Flinders University and the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) have discovered…

Decline in atmospheric carbon dioxide key to ancient climate transition — ScienceDaily

A decline in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels led to a fundamental shift in the behaviour of the Earth’s climate system around one million years ago, according to new research led by the University of Southampton. A team of international scientists used new geochemical measurements, coupled with a model of the ‘Earth system’, to show that the growth and changing nature of continental ice sheets, approximately a million years ago, coincided with a cascade of events that ultimately lowered atmospheric…

Artificial muscles give soft robots superpowers

A demonstration of strength of the artificial muscle. Credit: Shuguang Li Soft robotics has made leaps and bounds over the last decade as researchers around the world have experimented with different materials and designs to allow once rigid, jerky machines to bend and flex in ways that mimic and can interact more naturally with living organisms. However, increased flexibility and dexterity has a trade-off of reduced strength, as softer materials are generally not as strong or resilient as inflexible ones,…

Creating a personalized, professional ticketing experience for any business, powered by Square APIs

SimpleTix is growing their platform through a differentiated experience and leveraging the new multi-party settlement feature through Square’s E-commerce API. Building a unique product SimpleTix founder Aron Kansal first started tinkering with an event ticketing solution in college, over ten years ago. What began as a ticketing page he built in Adobe Dreamweaver for a small theater in Canada has now evolved into a flexible, full-service ticketing platform for thousands of venues. “I learned through my work as a freelance…

Screaming Circuits: Stage Three Marketing

As an engineer entering the land of entrepreneurship, you know (over simplification warning) design can be split into two philosophies: hack & patch, or engineer it. I suspect that all but lazy people would prefer the “engineer it” method over “hack & patch.” Unfortunately, we aren’t’ always given enough time or resources to do it right, which leads to the common expression: “Never time to do it right, but always time to do it over.” A similar concept applies in…
