The researchers, led by Alan Willner, an electrical engineering professor with the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering, successfully demonstrated data transmission rates of 32 gigabits per second across 2.5m of free space in a basement laboratory.
Millimetre waves occupy the 30GHz to 300GHz frequency bands. They are found in the spectrum between microwaves, which take up the 1GHz to 30GHz bands, and infrared waves, which are sometimes known as extremely high frequency (EHF)."

Meanwhile it will be -10F and lots of snow back in MN
Lies, that would be a veritable heatwave in the middle of winter, especially last winter. Although I did have fun blowing soap bubbles outside when it get really cold. Sometimes the rise like a hot air balloon before shattering, other times they would land on the snow frozen but with a hole and the ice would sublimate leaving tendrils of soap, but most of the time they would crash into the house or tree and shatter. It was always fun to watch, since what else are you going to do when the day time high is -25F.
Americans might look on with bemusement; I can understand that. I guess it's a bit like Florida choosing to break away from the US, having a pro-Florida political party endlessly demonizing "them" (the rest of the US) as causing pretty much every economic and political woe Florida has going for it. As an English guy, I think this whole situation really sucks. If the UK breaks up, the whole of Britain will be worse off for it, but I suspect Scotland will take the bigger brunt of the pain. And given that it will have made the decision, it will deserve to.
We do have something similar, although it is called Texas.
I have been following this with interest ever since I discovered the BBC World Service on one of the sub channels of Minnesota Public Radio. Being an American it doesn't seem to affect me but I would be for Scottish independence just because I think it would be neat to have a new country. In reality this doesn't seem to be a good reason for the Scots to choose it so it is probably for the better that I am not a resident of Scotland and instead an American.
Avation (learn to fly a plan)
Physical Education (you get to be a high school gym teacher)
Parks and recreation management (be an events coordinator at a local park or if you are lucky a park ranger with the NPS)
All of these were liberal arts programs, all of them had the same general education requirements as a STEM or any other degree, and all of them were much more vocational than a regular degree. I had roommates who majored in each one of these and even they admitted that apart from the vocational skill training they got nothing from these courses.
I went to a rejuvenation clinic and got a whole natural overhaul. They took out some wrinkles, did hair repair, changed the blood, added a good 30 to 40 years to my life. They also replaced my spleen and colon. What do you think?
I wonder with these types of artificial filters would there be any benefit for an otherwise healthy person to have this done?
