Logitech enhances solarpowered keyboard line with the Appley K760

first_imgLogitech is continuing its line of light-powered keyboards with the Wireless Solar Keyboard K760. It has all the features made for syncing with a Mac, iPad, or iPhone: Bluetooth, and Command and various Apple-centric function keys. However, nothing will stop a Windows user from pairing this keyboard with their PC — you’ll just have to live without the Windows button.From it’s look alone, the K760 looks like it was meant to be paired with an Apple device between the white keys and the framing silver backdrop. The K760 is similar to the K750 for Mac model Logitech released just last summer. Only this version is smaller — cutting off the numerical keypad. This size lends it as a better portable solution or companion for a tablet device.Its Bluetooth connection is a diversion from Logitech’s usual Unifying USB dongle method, which closes this keyboard off from any computer not equipped with Bluetooth. But, it also opens the K760 up for use with devices that have few or no USB ports. The K760 may be paired with up to 3 devices, of which you can switch between them seamlessly via one of the 3 keys located at the top of the keyboard.The K760 charges by any kind of light, indoors or out. The long, dark horizontal strip at the top of the keyboard takes in light to charge the internal battery. There’s no word on how long the keyboard can last if not being charged by a light source, however, Logitech promises that the K760 will continue to change even in the lowest lamp light.The Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 is currently available for preorder on Logitech’s site for $79.99.via Blog.Logitechlast_img read more

Zack Ryder suffers injury to his left knee during Smackdown Live, WWE issues statement…

first_img WWE.com is reporting that Zack Ryder suffered an injury to his left knee during tonight’s 12/13 WWE Smackdown Live from Washington, DC.Ryder reportedly suffered the injury while attempting a Rough Ryder in a No. 1 Contenders Battle Royal. Ryder, along with Mojo Rawley, won the match to earn a shot at WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Wyatt Family and Randy Orton.WWE Dr. Chris Robinson had the following to say about the injury.“We think he injured his kneecap or his patella. We think it popped out and then popped back in, so we’re just going to do an MRI to make sure that there is not cartilage damage or some tendon tearing, stuff like that. Hopefully there’s not and it’ll be a shorter rehab period. If there is, there’s a different road we might have to go down that may take longer to get him to recover.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipSeth Rollins Defends WWE On Two Separate OccasionsVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:30/Current Time 0:05Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -0:25 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Study finds disturbing trend in mortality rate in Kusilvak Census Area

first_imgA graph showing the age standardized mortality rate from self-harm and interpersonal violence for both sexes in 2014 from a University of Washington study. The study showed the rate of suicide and homicide in Alaska’s Kusilvak Census Area more than doubled between 1980 and 2014; a 130 percent increase and the highest rate in the nation. (Graphic by Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington)The rate of suicide and homicide in the Kusilvak Census Area, located along the lower Yukon River, more than doubled since 1980, a rate increase higher than anywhere else in the nation.Listen nowA study from the University of Washington mapped how people in the U.S. died during those years. Its finding for the area is disturbing. It’s a sobering increase from 51 deaths per 100,000 people in 1980 to 181 per 100,000 by 2014.The area’s small population numbers were adjusted to be able to compare rates with larger population areas.While the finding from the University of Washington does come with some caveats, Abraham Flaxman, an assistant professor at the University of Washington’s Global Health Department, said it raises a red flag.“Let me start by saying that 130 percent increase is huge,” Flaxman said. “And anytime we see an increase like that, and it’s an increase in something bad, we want to know about that.”The data came from death certificates from across the nation, and using this source brings a potential defect to the study.Flaxman said that even though death certification has been improving since the 1980s, quality varies and coroners in many areas would often list an alternate cause of death to avoid the stigma of suicide.Another limitation of the study is that it doesn’t show how much of that 130 percent increase is from suicide and how much is from homicide.But according to the State of Alaska’s death statistics, since 1999, which is about halfway through the study’s timeframe, suicides in the Kusilvak area have far exceeded homicides.For example, there were 13 suicides and four homicides between 1999 and 2001. Between 2011 and 2013, there were 24 suicides and six homicides.Presumably suicides account for most of the 130 percent increase, and Flaxman hopes that the numbers help local officials take action.“So now it is out there, and what happens from there, I really hope this is something people find helpful and can use to improve population health,” Flaxman said.Suicides in Alaska Natives is no secret.In this same Census Area in 2015, four people killed themselves in Hooper Bay in a period of weeks.While the continued high rate of suicides in Native communities took center stage at the Alaska Federation of Natives Meeting that year, one Native man underscored the issue by flinging himself off the balcony and dying in front of the delegates.One of the people trying to plug the flow of Alaska Native despair is Ray Daw, head of Behavioral Health at the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation.“Our prevention department, which is about four years old, has done a lot of work at understanding the impact of boarding schools, the impact of the epidemics that occurred two generations ago upon families in the region,” Daw said.Colonization disrupted the local culture by killing whole families and communities with epidemics and then taking children away from the survivors to educate them in white-run schools. This led to family dysfunction and substance abuse, conditions ripe for suicide because youth lose the capacity to see a viable future.The YKHC suicide prevention department works to reverse these forces by strengthening the Yupik culture.It bases its treatment on ways Yupik people lived healthy lives less than a century ago, before there were such high suicide rates.The department is fully staffed by local Alaskan Natives who all speak Yupik, Daw said.“Research says that if you’re going to have effective work in behavioral health, you have to have people who are closer to the culture in terms of how they think, feel and behave, and understand the dynamics of problems and solutions a lot more effectively than someone who isn’t,” Daw said.To get more Alaska Natives providing behavioral health care to Alaska Natives, the department partners with Dr. Diane McEachern at University of Alaska Fairbanks Kuskokwim Campus.McEachern teaches the rural human services certificate program, and the human services associate degree program. Both are paths to a degree in social work.Two Yupik elders are always in the classroom with McEachern.The classes work on how to counsel people and how to heal communities.McEachern is convinced that these classes can make a real difference.“So we’re looking at what does it mean for a whole community to experience more health and well-being?” McEachern said. “And if that happens, what are all the ways to help that happen? And then, what outcomes can we imagine from that in terms of the rates of all these issues? Well, they would plummet.”Professionals are putting their hope in historical healing and resiliency — strengths the elders in the classroom embody, strengths that the students work to build in their communities and strengths that, when they were present, the young did not to take their own lives, but instead grew up and became elders and leaders in their own right.The classes are rooted in the understanding that the rates of suicide, domestic violence and substance abuse are ways that the fallout from colonization manifest when one culture violates another.From there, the students can move beyond the past to create a viable future.“It’s is a social condition that happened to the Yupik people,” McEachern said. “And that’s a powerful insight for people to have, because now they can sit back and go, ‘Oh, it really wasn’t us. So what is us that kept us safe before? And let’s embrace that.’”But will that be enough to curb a trend that has built and increased over more than 30 years? No one knows the answer to that question.There have been efforts to bring highly visible discussion of the issue, such as the Pulitzer Prize-winning series “A People in Peril: A Generation of Despair” published in 1988 by the Anchorage Daily News.There has also been controversy and discussion, both public and private, along with community and private healing sessions. But despite all of this, there is still no sign of a reversal in the trend of increasing suicides in Alaska Native youth.Johanna Eurich and Steve Heimel contributed reporting to this story.last_img read more

Family seeks PMs intervention fair probe into councillor Ekramuls death

first_imgThe family of ‘gunned down’ Teknaf municipal ward councillor Ekramul Haque demanded on Thursday a fair probe into the ‘shady circumstances’ that led to his death and sought the prime minister’s intervention into the matter.In a press conference, Ekramul’s wife Ayesha Begum said that a member of an intelligence agency on 26 May called her husband on the pretext of purchasing a land.She claimed that the same official had contacted him two weeks earlier and had also introduced him to a Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) official.Citing evidence in the form of recorded voice calls, she said that the final outgoing call made to Ekramul’s number was by his daughter at11:32pm on 26 May.While the call was received, no response was heard apart from a conversation in the background where one individual asked another whether he was involved, with the other person denying any involvement.The conversation was followed by sounds of gunshot and Ekramul’s screams.A voice was later heard, asking someone else to “shoot at the car.”The second last call to Ekramul was also made by his daughter on11:13pm, where Ekramul told her, sobbing, that he was going to Hrila with the same ‘major’ who came to meet that night.Ayesha said that investigating the voice records would prove that killing Ekramul was premeditated and not part of any ‘gunfight’.She refuted the official press release issued by RAB regarding his death, citing wrong information which clearly showed that the entire incident was staged.Despite his financial hardship, he was never involved in the drug trade, rather was vocal against it, Ayesha added.Citing his loyalty and dedication to Awami League, she pleaded for the intervention of prime minister Sheikh Hasina, to look into the matter.Local Awami League leader and Teknaf ward councillor Ekramul Haque was killed in what RAB claimed was a “gunfight” between the elite force and drug peddlers in Cox’s Bazar.last_img read more

Fakhrul turns reckless Quader

Nanowire technology could make LCDs brighter thinner and cheaper

first_img Citation: Nanowire technology could make LCDs brighter, thinner, and cheaper (2008, October 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-10-nanowire-technology-lcds-brighter-thinner.html (PhysOrg.com) — As nanoimprinting technology advances, scientists have shown that using nano-sized polarizers could significantly enhance the contrast ratio in liquid crystal displays (LCDs). For consumers, that means that TVs, computer monitors, and especially mobile displays could become brighter, lighter, and thinner in the future. Scientists Zhibing Ge and Shin-Tson Wu from the University of Central Florida in Orlando have presented their improved LCD design in a recent issue of Applied Physics Letters. They used a nanowire grid polarizer (NWGP) for backlight recycling, which enhances the LCD’s optical efficiency and thereby reduces its power consumption. “The method for fabricating large area wire-grid polarizers is advancing rapidly, benefiting from the huge research momentum of nano-imprinting technology,” Wu told PhysOrg.com. “Nowadays, it is possible to fabricate NWGPs with a pitch of 100 nanometers or smaller. Different from the reflective polarizers made from multilayer films, WGP is a grating structure which can exhibit a very high transmission contrast ratio. As a result, it holds potential for replacing the bottom sheet LP which is close to the backlight side in a LCD.”In conventional LCDs, the devices are sandwiched between a top and bottom layer of linear polarizers. While linear polarizers can provide a high contrast ratio (the difference between bright and dark luminance), they also tend to absorb more than 60% of the device’s backlight, resulting in a maximum light transmittance of just 40%. Ge and Wu show how replacing the bottom linear polarizer with a light-recycling NWGP, and keeping the top linear polarizer as it is, can improve the device’s optical efficiency. The scientists explain how the recycling process works: when unpolarized light from a source (such as a cold cathode fluorescent lamp or light-emitting diode) reaches the NWGP layer, only waves traveling perpendicular to the wire grids (p-waves) can penetrate the NWGP, and are transmitted. Waves traveling parallel to the wire grids (s-waves) are first reflected back to a light guide plate for recycling, but then they bounce back to the NWGP again. By reflecting back and forth, the s-wave has more chances to be converted to a p-wave and transmitted through the NWGP. This recycling process repeats several times before the light is absorbed or scattered away. As a result, the overall light efficiency can be improved by about 60%, as compared to using two linear sheet polarizers. Besides the increased efficiency, NWGPs could offer some other advantages compared with conventional LCDs. The NWGP that the scientists used here was only 200 nanometers thick (the linear polarizer is 210 micrometers thick), which would not only decrease unwanted light absorption, but also minimize light leakage and enable ultra-thin displays. In addition, the linear polarizer-NWGP configuration can provide a wide viewing angle: the scientists achieved a 100:1 contrast ratio across a 75° viewing cone using a conventional multi-domain vertical alignment LCD. “We plan to work with our contract sponsor Chi-Mei Optoelectronics Corporation to make test devices for this new device configuration,” said Ge. “In addition, we will apply this nano-wire grid polarizer technology to sunlight readable transflective LCDs for mobile devices and 3D displays. If the performance is good and cost is acceptable, then we expect this technology will have widespread applications in the consumer market in the near future.”More information: Ge, Zhibing and Wu, Shin-Tson. “Nanowire grid polarizer for energy efficient and wide-view liquid crystal displays.” Applied Physics Letters 93, 121104 (2008).Copyright 2008 PhysOrg.com.

Drilling study finds faults after earthquakes heal faster than previously thought

first_img When earthquakes occur due to tectonic plates rubbing against one another, cracks open up in the ground leaving behind what look like wounds. Researchers have been studying these wounds to see if they might offer any new information that would help scientists better understand earthquakes in general. To that end, the researchers in this new effort embarked on a program called the Wenchuan earthquake Fault Scientific Drilling project. Five boreholes were drilled down into various parts of the fault and then sensors were sent down to collect heat and permeability measurements. The boreholes were drilled 178 days after the deadly earthquake in the region struck (which killed over 70,000 people.) At the time of initial drilling, the team found approximately 1 centimeter of new fault gouge, a type of rock that has been pulverized.Subsequent measurement over a period of 18 months showed that the rock in the fault was slowly becoming less permeable—as the fault healed, water was less able to make its way through the rock. This was expected, of course. What surprised the research team, however, was how quickly the fault was being repaired by mineral deposits left behind by water flow. They described it as “significantly faster” than lab experiments had shown.Another surprise was a periodic tendency of the faults to lose ground in their healing process. The rock would suddenly become more permeable, the sensors showed, and then once again become less so as the healing process resumed. The team traced this to other seismic activity such as earthquakes that occurred in Sumatra in 2010 and in Japan in 2011.The researchers acknowledge their data relates to just one fault zone in the aftermath of one earthquake, but their findings suggest that similar studies should be done following future earthquakes to help determine if what they observed is the normal case for healing fault zones.

Superlattice of singleatom magnets aims for ultimate limit of highdensity data storage

first_img More information: Romana Baltic et al. “Superlattice of Single Atom Magnets on Graphene.” Nano Letters. DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.6b03543 Citation: Superlattice of single-atom magnets aims for ultimate limit of high-density data storage (2016, November 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-11-superlattice-single-atom-magnets-aims-ultimate.html © 2016 Phys.org (Phys.org)—Scientists have fabricated a superlattice of single-atom magnets on graphene with a density of 115 terabits per square inch, suggesting that the configuration could lead to next-generation storage media. Single-atom magnet breaks new ground for future data storage (Left) A superlattice of single dysprosium atoms on a graphene-iridium substrate. (Right) The superlattice has a very large magnetic hysteresis, indicating high magnetic stability. Credit: Baltic et al.center_img “Single-atom magnets represent the ultimate limit for ultrahigh-density magnetic storage devices,” Stefano Rusponi, a physicist at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and coauthor of the new research, told Phys.org. “So far, researchers have mainly focused on the magnetic properties of single atoms and small clusters randomly distributed on the supporting surfaces.” [See previous papers here and here.] “In our new paper, we demonstrate the ability to realize a superlattice of single atoms having stable magnetization. This represents the first prototype of a storage media based on a single atom per bit.”As the researchers explained, a key challenge in using an array of atomic magnets as a data storage device is to ensure that the magnets are stable and do not interact with each other, since this could result in data loss.To address this challenge, the research team, led by Professor Harald Brune at EPFL, took advantage of the good magnetic properties of dysprosium atoms, along with the properties of the graphene-iridium substrate.Part of the reason for the highly stable magnetization is because of the lattice mismatch between graphene and iridium, which creates a periodic moiré pattern. This periodic pattern leads to an equidistant arrangement of the most favorable dysprosium adsorption sites.When the dysprosium atoms are deposited onto the substrate at about 40 K, their surface diffusion is activated, which causes them to jump around on the surface. This motion allows them to reach the most favorable adsorption sites determined by the moiré pattern, so that they form a highly ordered array, with an average distance between atoms of just 2.5 nanometers. Once assembled, the atoms’ magnetic stability can be affected in a few ways, including by scattering with electrons and phonons on the surface, as well as by quantum tunneling of the magnetic states.Fortunately, two of the beneficial properties of graphene are its very low electron and phonon densities, which protects the dysprosium atoms against scattering. In addition, the dysprosium atoms have a favorable magnetic ground state that protects against quantum tunneling of the magnetization. Both properties contribute to the high magnetic stability of the superlattice.Measurements showed that the superlattice has a very large magnetic hysteresis—which is a measure of the irreversibility of a magnet—that outperforms the best dysprosium-based single-ion molecular magnets. The researchers explain that the high magnetic stability depends on all of the combined properties of the atoms and the graphene-iridium substrate, and that missing just one of these properties greatly reduces the stability.One of the current drawbacks of the design is that the magnetic stability decreases at higher temperatures. In the future, the researchers plan to improve the superlattice’s thermal stability, possibly by growing graphene on an insulating substrate. “The magnetic stability of the dysprosium atoms is limited to temperatures below 10 K and is sensitive to contamination, thus requiring ultra-high vacuum conditions for our experiments,” Rusponi said. “In the future, we plan to improve the performances of the single-atom magnet superlattice. First, we intend to increase the maximum temperature at which the magnetic stability survives by finding the optimum combination of single atom species and supporting substrate. Second, we intend to protect the superlattice with a capping layer preserving the properties of the magnetic atoms.” Journal information: Nano Letters This document is subject to copyright.
