La France est officiellement entrée en déflation

La France est officiellement entrée en déflation | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Le 13 novembre, l’INSEE publiait les dernières données relatives à l’évolution des prix pour le mois d’octobre 2014 : « Les prix à la consommation sont stables en octobre 2014 ; ils augmentent de 0.5% sur un an ». A priori, rien d’alarmant. Cependant, en regardant le détail des chiffres d’un peu plus près, il apparaît tout simplement que la France vient discrètement d’entrer en déflation.

 En effet, si l’indice des prix à la consommation permet de refléter l’ensemble des variations de prix, il reste tout de même soumis aux humeurs des biens les plus volatils.

Ainsi, afin de se faire une idée plus précise des tensions inflationnistes, il est recommandé de s’intéresser à l’indice d’inflation sous-jacente. Pour la définition, c’est l’INSEE qui en parle le mieux :

« L’indice d’inflation sous-jacente est un indice désaisonnalisé qui permet de dégager une tendance de fond de l’évolution des prix. Il traduit l’évolution profonde des coûts de production et la confrontation de l’offre et de la demande. L’indice d’inflation sous-jacente est corrigé des mesures fiscales de façon à neutraliser les effets sur l’indice des prix de la variation de la fiscalité indirecte ou des mesures gouvernementales affectant directement les prix à la consommation. L’inflation sous-jacente est ainsi plus adaptée à une analyse des tensions inflationnistes, car moins perturbée par des phénomènes exogènes.«

Pantelligent smart frying pan is like a GPS for your dinner - CNET

Pantelligent smart frying pan is like a GPS for your dinner - CNET | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
The geeky home is currently under siege from a shuffling hoard of smart gadgets. We've got smart thermostats, smart light bulbs, smart sprinklers, smart outlets, smart beds and smart refrigerators. Resistance is futile. If you're ready to just break down and embrace smart everything, there's a Kickstarter you should be checking out: Pantelligent, the smart frying pan.

Pantelligent is a 12-inch non-stick frying pan with a temperature sensor and Bluetooth in the handle. Pull up a recipe on the Pantelligent app, fire up the pan and let the app walk you through the entire process, from adding the oil to adjusting the temperature, and even telling you when to flip the salmon fillet. It also lets you know when the grub is done and ready to eat.

This smart frying pan is a GPS for dinner. It walks you through the directions step-by-step and sends you alerts when you wander away from the pan. Just like when using a GPS, you should still cultivate your own cooking common sense. It never hurts to double-check doneness with a thermometer or cut open the chicken to see if it's still pink inside before you chow down.

Parrot Bebop Drone Preview - CNET | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
With the Bebop Drone, Parrot puts higher-end features into a compact quadcopter that is sure to attract new and experienced pilots.

For starters, its camera is a step-up from the one found on its previous models like the AR.Drone 2.0, with an f2.2 fish-eye lens with a 180-degree angle of view and a 14-megapixel sensor.

It can capture video at 1080p full-HD resolution; the AR.Drone 2.0 is limited to 720p. Video is recorded to the Bebop's 8GB of internal storage (there's no microSD or SD card slot) in MP4 format. Photos can be captured in JPEGs or Adobe DNG raw format.

Change How Streaming Royalties Are Calculated And Save The Full-length Album While You Are At It

 

Streaming services, most notably Spotify (by far the largest) use what could be called a parimutuel royalty system: all the money collected goes into a big pool, Spotify takes their 30% off the top, and whatever is left is distributed to artists based on their share of overall plays. Spotify explains how it all works right here. It sounds perfectly fair and reasonable: if an artist wants to make more money all they need to do is get more plays. But there’s a major disconnect in this economic model that has not been discussed widely: Spotify doesn’t make money from plays. They make money fromsubscriptions*.

‘No safe haven for torturers’ – The rocky road to the Convention against Torture — Medium

‘No safe haven for torturers’ – The rocky road to the Convention against Torture — Medium | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
The event was a legal milestone that sent a chilling message to human rights violators the world over.

Eight years after being ousted from power, in October 1998, Augusto Pinochet, the ailing Chilean former leader and one of the world’s most notorious dictators, decided to travel to Europe to receive medical treatment.

But as he arrived in London, members of the Chilean diaspora – many of them survivors of torture during Pinochet’s brutal regime – saw a golden opportunity for the former dictator to be investigated, after Chile had systematically refused to do so.

How scientists are developing the robot doctors of the future

How scientists are developing the robot doctors of the future | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Taken out of context, it must have been an odd scene. Late on a cold October night in Montreal in 2006, a room of engineering students and their professor, Sylvain Martel, were watching the limp, anesthetized body of a pig in an MRI machine when the still air was punctuated with gasps and applause.

A hospital technician had just injected a steel bead roughly the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen through a catheter into the pig’s carotid artery, and after a few excruciating minutes of, well, nothing, they watched the bead on a computer screen suddenly hop into motion, ticking off every point the team had plotted for it to go.


It was the first time an object was steered wirelessly through a living creature’s blood vessel, and to the world of microrobotics, it was the dawn of a new era – an accomplishment akin to the moon landing, albeit on a dramatically smaller scale.

How to Get More Traffic From Every Post

How to Get More Traffic From Every Post | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Traffic is a catch-22. You need people to share, but what if you have no traffic?. Here's how you can get more traffic from every post, every time.

Rotem Banai's curator insight, November 17, 9:20 AM

This article provides 10 different suggestions on how to increase traffic from any post you create. 1.Prioritze your email list. Creating the option of subscribing emails allows your follower population to grow tremendously. 2. Be a part of a community. By joining communities, reading and commenting on posts made throughout the site allows you to get an understanding about what content your target audience wants to read and engage in. 3. Publish long content. Surprisingly enough the longer your post is the happier the readers are and generated more shares. Writing longer posts gives the readers more of what they want. 4. Build an inner circle. Having an inner circle allows you to have people preview your content before you post them. 5. post on popular aggregate sites. Share posts on sites that havent been reached yet. Having an inner circle also allows your content to be posted on popular aggregate sites. 6. Make images and posts easy to share. Once traffic on your site begins to grow it is important that whatever content you are posting is easily shareable and not a long process of cutting and pasting. 7. Repromote your older content. Use analytics to find content that hadnt been shared in recent months and re share them on a variety of different platforms in order to gain more viewers on those posts. 8. Click to tweet quotes. This may not necessarily create more traffic on the site but it will increase an organic way to have readers respond and share insight based off the post. 9. Send the highlights of each post in an email. Spend time discovering what is most important to the audience from the information and share only snippets of that to encourage them to go to the actual site to read. 10. Publish on a regular schedule. Create a time schedule that allows you to post on a regularly time to share with your followers. This also helps you so that you dont fall behind on your posts. These tricks  i think are very helpful and should be read by many in order to help them.

Electric Cars To Be Powered By Own Panels Using Supercapacitor Films - QUT Research

Electric Cars To Be Powered By Own Panels Using Supercapacitor Films - QUT Research | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
If you are curious about the research in the field of electric cars, here's something to truly dazzle your brain. A team of researchers from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has achieved a breakthrough in nanotechnology that makes it possible for an electric car to be powered using its own body parts/panels. With the help of light weight super-capacitors that the team has developed and the regular batteries in-use today, the electric cars will be able to derive a significant boost in power. The researchers from QUT along with PhD scientists from Rice University in Houston, US built these super-capacitors featuring two all-carbon electrodes with electrolyte in-between them into a thin but strong high-power density film. This film could be integrated within a car's doors, floor, roof, bonnet and other body panels so as to store enough energy that can be used for turbocharging an electric car's battery in a matter of few minutes.

In order to give our future electric cars the much-need boost of extra energy for acceleration, the super-capacitor film are truly one of the best options available, thanks to its properties. The supercapacitors are an ideal complement for the mass storage batteries as they possess a limited amount of charge and are able to deliver high-output in a very short amount of time. If we compare that with a standard batteries, the supercapacitors provide considerably faster rate of acceleration and charging time for the electric cars.
