When a graphene sheet was placed on top of an atomically smooth sheet of yttrium iron garnet, the graphene borrowed the magnetic properties from the yttrium iron garnet and became magnetized without the need for doping.
I agree. I have had enough of hearing about all the doping scandals.
The last thing I need is news that my writing instrument is high on who-knows-what.
I can't wait to buy a pencil that will stick to my fridge without having to glue a magnet to it.
It'd be a shame it something were to happen to it...
But can I use vi on it?
THAT is the question.
I use Vim Touch on my Android phone.
If it doesn't have VI, I am not interested.
Each mediam was made with the author who was well aware that they are different mediums, so the stories were adapted to each medium.
Bah! You are all wrong! For the REAL die-hard fan, get a hold of the radio scripts. They add a lot of commentary on how different things came about, how he was busy scribbling details right until air time, how he grabbed the janitor at the last second to play a part he just added in. The commentary is almost as funny as the script itself.
It describes how, at the end of one episode, he threw our heros out of a space lock and had the floating in open space with seconds to live.
He then goes on the discuss how he struggled for that next week trying to decide how to free them. Anything he came up with seemed to highly improbable.
So... he came up with the Improbability Drive (tm Sirius Cybernetics).
BTW: I agree, each medium was adapted as necessary. I enjoyed all of them. At first, the movie seemed a little too slapstick for my tastes, but it quickly grew on me. I think Douglas would have approved.
Even after 10 years of being on Slashdot, I am left to wonder what the point of a Slashdot journal is.
Who would ever look here and why?
Perhaps if this was the graveyard of rejected submissions but otherwise...?
Its stale. I've got news for you Google Street View and Satellite images can be years old. If I were relying on it for up to date information then I'd be mistaken. My house on street view was taken in 2010. A lot has changed since then.
That may be true but...
This is a logical starting point:
1. The drone snaps pictures of undocumented development.
2. Now they send in an inspector to verify and, having done so, start the process of reassessing the property.
3. Send new taxation notice
This sounded great: using hydrogen to generate electricity without combustion. The exhaust is pure water. I was excited
Years after losing interest, I decided to check on recent developments in the field.
I discovered that research into the use of fuel cells is alive and well.
This may very well become the disruptive technology that we hope it could be.
Here are some of the many recent innovations out there:
April 9 2013: Burn scrap paper and aluminum, add cheap catalyst and water: "cheap" hydrogen on demand
Nov 25, 2013: CellEra creates a catalyst free of rare earth metals.
April 29, 2014: Lawrence Berkeley and Argonne National Labs create a process that uses 85% less platinum and has more the 30 times the catalytic activity.
June 24, 2014: UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council experiments with ammonia as a source fuel.
It is relatively easy to store, "cheap" to make, and can be stored at low preassure.
July 2014: GE has developed a process that uses stainless steel as a catalyst instead of platinum.
The fuel is natural gas instead of pure hydrogen. The exhaust, a mixture of hydrogen
and carbon, is then put through a combustion engine for further efficiency.
August 4, 2014: Anglo American Platinum is funding a study into the use of liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology
as a means of storing hydrogen.
August 22, 2014: Stanford has developed an process for producing hydrogen from water using inexpensive materials and relatively little energy.
Last night, researchers at Malwarebytes noticed strange behavior on sites like Last.fm, The Times of Israel and The Jerusalem Post. Ads on the sites were being unusually aggressive, setting off anti-virus warnings and raising flags in a number of Malwarebytes systems. After some digging, researcher Jerome Segura realized the problem was coming from Google's DoubleClick ad servers and the popular Zedo ad agency. Together, they were serving up malicious ads designed to spread the recently identified Zemot malware. A Google representative has confirmed the breach, saying "our team is aware of this and has taken steps to shut this down."

That is a huge amount of water, needing a pretty big pump
The article says that it uses a next-generation micro-battery! (presumably yet to be invented)
Next-gen, micro-something, molecules, scientist... why are you unwilling to believe?
"Resign" in Klingon would have to be a polite way of saying "took a Bat'leth to the skull".
He is definitely no Klingon.
