Yet you can still buy new production 12AX7 and other vacuum tubes!
Yeah, but try getting vacuum to put in those tubes -- there's nothing available.
I think there is a feet/meters confusion here.
From the link in the AC post you're replying to, "
But the people who have the power to change the situation either don't know, don't think it is important, or don't care enough to act. Research like this can change one of the above.
"35 K is fine - I'm waiting for the 4wd trail rated version."
The model X ('crossover utility vehicle') is being launched sometime about now (I think a few hours ago.) As far as I know that is as close to 'trail rated' as they're currently planning to make. It probably has a price tag around $70k+ however. There is a 4wd version of the model S, so I expect model X will at least have that as an option, perhaps standard.
Mr Musk not only knows this, but changing this world in this way is Mr Musk's declared reason for founding Tesla Motors in the first place. The plan is to produce the Model 3 in a few years, which will have your 300km range, but current price is expected to be US$35k (neglecting government incentives for electric vehicles.)
What you're looking for is the Model 3 which does not yet exist, but has been Tesla's goal since inception. Everything we've seen up until now has been primarily done to gain experience and fund development towards the Model 3.
The Model 3 doesn't quite hit your targets - price US$35k, range 320km.
"Oh look, a stampede, I think I'll join in and who knows, maybe I'll get to trample someone to death!"
That is so not what happened, whatever you may think. You have a severe case of bigotry.
Why hasn't this been moderated "troll" into oblivion?
Lyme disease is bacterial, not viral. (Although maybe one day the methods used here will be able to be extended to the much larger genomes of bacteria.)
There are many people who will give bogus Lyme disease diagnoses. This might be what happened with your friend's wife. I haven't the knowledge or expertise to say more than 'it is a possibility'.
Only if all the tests were for viruses.
My understanding from a very quick skim of the paper (open access, here) is that they are not using microarrays. They have a mixture of a very large (2 million) number of probes to match DNA/RNA sequences of all known viruses which infect vertebrates. They use these to amplify viral sequences and then use normal high throughput DNA sequencing (Illumina, in this case) to see what they've got. They claim that it is sensitive to both DNA and RNA viruses (and all the variations - double, single stranded etc.) Being able to detect both DNA and RNA in a single test mildly surprises me, but I'm only slightly familiar with DNA sequencing technology, so maybe it isn't a big deal.
They do say "A biotinylated oligonucleotide library was synthesized on the NimbleGen cleavable array platform and used for solution-based capture of viral nucleic acids present in complex samples containing variable proportions of viral and host nucleic acids." Perhaps that translates to say the microarray you talk about was used to make the 2 million probes.
As a complete aside, I'm a little surprised this isn't a Nature or Science paper.
I was thinking along the same lines.
An infrared cutting laser should be able to get in without completing any circuits. I'm not sure how portable they are (particularly in 1980.)
As well as an x-ray detector as an extra trigger, we could add temperature (detonate outside some range) and we could make the enclosure airtight and then pressurize (or depressurize) it and add a pressure trigger.
I think there is a movie script in here.
That is really cool, I didn't know about those. Thanks.
For the sake of practicality, they'd probably be 600m from H. sapiens in the Ediacaran building, plus there'd be little sign beside the path from 'origin of life' to the main museum, at 2 km, to mark the correct location.
Wonderful - now all the scientific feuding over whether Amborella is the basal angiosperm can spill over into wiki edit wars.
(Amborella trichopoda is a New Caledonian flowering plant (angiosperm) with no close relatives. The deepest split in the angiosperm phylogeny may be Amborella splitting from everything else. Much ink and enmity has been spent on whether or not this is so. Here is a summary I found, although on a skim read I suspect it was written by a partisan.)
This is the theory that Jack built. This is the flaw that lay in the theory that Jack built. This is the palpable verbal haze that hid the flaw that lay in...
