Humanity's 'inexorable' population growth is so rapid that even global catastrophe wouldn't stop it | Eman8 | Scoop.it
The global human population is “locked in” to an inexorable rise this century and will not be easily shifted, even by apocalyptic events such as a third world war or lethal pandemic, a study has found.

Study of electrons in space could help weather forecasting

Study of electrons in space could help weather forecasting | Eman8 | Scoop.it
Researchers have discovered a formerly undetected impact of space weather on the polar atmosphere, which may explain some previously unexplained variations in winter weather patterns. Their results, published today (Tuesday 14 October), in the journal Nature Communications could have important implications ...
Steve McDonald's insight:

Meteorologists are waking up to the fact that Earth's climate is not a closed system. This has major implications for our climate models and climate change hypotheses.

Steve McDonald's insight:

This is the second study I've seen focused on space weather that suggests we may be heading for a mini ice age. Most studies focused on global warming seem to treat our planetary weather as a closed system, but it isn't.

The Microwave Factor: Russian firm’s Li-Fi internet solution winning foreign clients

The Microwave Factor: Russian firm’s Li-Fi internet solution winning foreign clients | Eman8 | Scoop.it

A Russian company is selling its Li-Fi based wireless LAN solution (a visible light communication technology that uses light from light-emitting diodes to deliver internet) in the U.S., Israel, China, and other countries. 


The core of the network is a router that is capable of transmitting a signal using a light beam at a distance of up to 23-26 feet (7-8 meters). The signal can be transmitted to eight devices at once in other parts of an office, and access speed is four times faster than standard Wi-Fi. 

Li-Fi is unique in that it creates a digital binary code with a light beam, while Wi-Fi transmits data using radio waves.

Biologists discover electric bacteria that eat pure electrons rather than sugar, redefining the tenacity of life | ExtremeTech | Eman8 | Scoop.it
Some intrepid biologists at the University of Southern California (USC) have discovered bacteria that survives on nothing but electricity -- rather than food, they eat and excrete pure electrons. These bacteria yet again prove the almost miraculous tenacity of life -- but, from a technology standpoint, they might also prove to be useful in enabling the creation of self-powered nanoscale devices that clean up pollution. Some of these bacteria also have the curious ability to form into
