De plus en plus menaçant, l'ouragan Irène continue son avancée dans l'Atlantique et pourrait atteindre dans les prochains jours les côtes américaines. Placé en catégorie 3 sur l’échelle de Saffir-Simpson depuis son passage sur les Bahamas, l'ouragan est le premier de la saison. Des vents pouvant souffler jusqu’à 217 km/h, c’est ce à quoi doivent s’attendre les habitants de Caroline du Nord samedi matin. Le Centre américain des ouragans (NHC) a qualifié l’ouragan Irène de « dangereux » et pense même qu’il pourrait passer en catégorie 4 s’il continue à prendre de l’ampleur. Sa violence est telle que des vagues de près de 4 mètres vont certainement frapper les côtes américaines et la force de ses vents s’étend dans un rayon de 410 km...

Saint Cecilia's Feast Day

Saint Cecilia's Feast Day | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of the musicians and her Feast Day is celebrated on November 22. Born in 2nd Century Rome, the story says she heard heavenly music in her heart when she was married, and at the end of her short life, as she lay dying a martyr’s death, she praised God, singing to Him. It is the reason for which Christian Churches celebrate her as the patroness of musicians and Church music. John Dryden and Alexander Pope, Henry Purcell, George Frideric Handel and Benjamin Britten have dedicated music and poems to Saint Cecilia, and their works were presented in musical concerts and festivals held on her Feast Day.

Elon Musk Testing ‘X-Wing’ Fins For Reusable Rockets, Seafaring Spaceport Drones For Landing | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Let’s face it: Elon Musk is probably a time traveller sent back to help us leave earth behind and achieve the next phase of human evolution. The inventor and entrepreneur issued a minor tweet storm today, in which he detailed a new SpaceX program to test the function of “X-Wing” style grid fins that could help spacecraft navigate upon re-entry after delivering personnel or cargo to an orbiting space station.

Here, in chronological order, are Musk’s own tweets describing the tech, which, also includes an autonomous seafaring drone spaceport platform, to give them a landing pad that can hold its position within three meters’ distance even in the heart of a raging storm.

Cache is the new RAM | MemSQL - The Database for Speed, Scale & Simplicity | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
One of the (few) advantages of being in technology for a long time is that you get to see multiple tech cycles beginning to end. You get to see how breakthroughs actually propagate. If all you have seen is a part of the curve, it’s hard to extrapolate correctly. You either overshoot the short-term progress or undershoot the long. What’s surprising is not how quickly the facts on the ground change, but how slowly engineering practice changes in response. This is a Strowger switch, an automated way to connect phone circuits. It was invented in 1891.

Toyota hopes to recreate Prius success with hydrogen-powered Mirai

Toyota hopes to recreate Prius success with hydrogen-powered Mirai | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
From the driver’s seat of the Toyota Mirai, the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell car could be a plusher and more powerful version of the Prius – if it wasn’t for the H20 button on the dash which releases a trickle of water.

Until now, car companies have been slow to bring hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to market. But Toyota is betting on the Mirai (‘future’ in Japanese) to emerge as the next generation of green car.

For that to occur, the four-seater sedan will need to replicate the success of the Prius in taking the offbeat technology of a gas-electric hybrid engine and making it middle of the road within the space of only a few years. The Prius is now the top-selling car in California.

The Mirai goes on sale in Japan in December, and in the US and Europe in the second half of 2015.

What I’m certain of — and learning more everyday — is that life is what we make it; we are all more alike than we are different; and that a spirit of adventure, instead of fear, leads to learning more about ourselves, understanding more about others; and to truly loving one other.
