Hurrah!!! HAMILTON won the Canadian Grand prix

Triple time world Champion Lewis Hamilton took pole position for the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix on Saturday with championship-leading Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg qualifying alongside him on the front row.

It was the Briton's fifth position at the circuit Gilles Villeneuve, where he has won four times, and 53rd of his career. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel qualified third with Australian Daniel Ricciardo lining up fourth for Red Bull.

Hamilton's pole means he has a good chance of cutting into Nico Rosberg's lead at the top of the Championship, as the two-time world champions trails his German teammate by 24 points with the manaco win having helped him reduce Rosberg's lead.

Charging cable with automatic phone backup made

Meem's new product might be just the solution to your woes. The company creates power cables for iOS and Android that back up your device every time you plug it in. After a successful kickstarter campaign, Meem's cables started shipping earlier this week.

The way we use smartphones has changed a lot, and many of us never even plug our smartphones into computers anymore. At the same time, the data you keep on your phone is important, and if you don't trust the cloud storage providers to keep your data safe, the question is how you work backups into your daily routine.

Meem claims that because the cable is a physical device (rather than a cloud service, or files on your computer), it's more secure. That makes sense on one level, but I don't know about you - I know I've lost a lot more charging cables than cloud passwords over the years.

The beauty of Meem is that  it's completely transparent. While you may forget to back up your device, the likelihood of forgett…

Engineers build 5G-capable stretchable electronics for the Internet

Scientists have created the world's fastest stretchable, wearable integrated circuits, an advance that could drive the Internet of Things and lead to a much more connected, high-speed wireless planet.
The platform developed by University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers may help manufacturers expand the capabilities and applications of wearable electronics - including those with biomedical applications - particularly as they strive to develop devices that take advantage of a new generation of wireless broadband technologies referred to as 5G. With wavelength sizes between a millimetre and a metre, microwave radio frequencies are electromagnetic waves that use frequencies in the 0.3 gigahertz to 300 gigahertz range. That falls directly in the 5G range. In mobile communications, the wide microwave radio frequencies of 5G networks will accommodate a growing number of cellphone users and notable increases in data speeds and coverage areas. In an intensive care unit, epidermal electroni…

Wow What is this? Is this PIZZA...

Italian Chefs create mile-long Neapolitan to break longest pizza record. Along with 100 chefs collaborated to create a 1853.88 meters (6082.2 feet/ 1.15 miles) long neapolitan, which Guinness World Records has just confirmed is officially the Longest Pizza ever made.

The Recipe included 2,000 kg of flour, 1,600 kg of tomatoes, 2,000 kg of fiordilatte cheese and 200 litres of Olive oil.

During the 'L'Unione Fa La Pizza event, the skilled chefs spent 11 hours preparing the traditional Italian treat and used five specially-made portable wood fire ovens to ensure the mile-long pizza was cooked to perfection.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Lucia Sinigagliesi attended the event to verify the record attempt.

New Eye glass for Vision Loss people

Researchers have designed new eyeglasses using high-power prisms to optimally expand the visual fields of both eyes are cut by half. The new designs address some limitations of existing prism correction available to this population.

     Impairing either the left or right halves of the visual fields in both eyes, hemianopia is most commonly caused by stroke, brain tumours and head trauma. Hemianopia reduces the natural visual field of about 180 degree to a mere 90 degree. People with hemianopia have difficulty detecting hazards on their blind sides - leading to collisions, falls and other accidents.

     One method of treatment for hemianopia is to expand the expand the visual field with prisms mounted on or embedded in eyeglasses.

    A research team led by professor Eli peli from Harvard Medical School has been developing Prism devices to expand the visual field for these patients for more than 15 years. The peripheral prism glasses - their most recent commercially available device, in…

It's not a Glass it is a Transparent Wood

     A team of researchers at the University of Maryland has taken the idea of making wood transparent one better, by making it stronger than glass and thus more useful for a variety of applications.  And this transparent wood is more stronger than glass and it might be useful in solar panel development.

     It could be done by boiling pieces of wood in water, Sodium hydroxide and a few other chemicals for approximately two hours to remove the lignin that gives wood its color. Afterwards they applied a transparent polymer to give the resulting product back some of the resilience it lost when the lignin was removed.

     In this new effort, the researchers used approximately the same technique to remove the lignin, but then coated it with  an epoxy to make the wood even stronger than glass, and it will biodegrade much better than plastic.

     As the team notes, treating wood does not destroy the channels in it that were originally used by the tree it came from to carry water. After trea…

What happened this day in history??? - Vasco da Gama reached India in this day

Vasco da Gama the first European who reached India via the Atlantic Ocean at May 20 1498.  He arrives calicut on the Malabar Coast.

Gama sailed from Lisbon, Portugal, in july 1497, rounded the Cape of Good Hope, and Anchored at Malindi on the east coast of Africa. With the help of the Indian merchant he met there, he then set off across the Indian Ocean. The Portuguese explorer was not greeted warmly by the Muslim merchants of Calicut, and in 1499 he had to fight his way out of the harbor on his return trip home. In 1502, he led a squadron of ships to Calicut to avenge the massacre of Portuguese explorers there and succeeded in subduing the inhabitants. In 1524, he was sent as viceroy to Indis, but he fell ill and died in Cochin.

Private meeting held over synthetic human genes

At stake: the potential to eventually create a human life without the need for parents. On Tuesday, about 150 scientists, lawyers and entrepreneurs gathered at Harvard Medical School to discussa future project to improve techniques to synthesize human DNA from chemicals. But they held the meeting behind closed doors, with explicit instructions not to contact the media, getting the scientific community in a tizzy. At the top of their worry pile is that the project will end up innovating new ways to make synthetic human genes, which could lead to them being used to artificially create humans. Scientists Drew Endy of Stanford and Laurie Zoloth of Northwestern University criticized the meeting for keeping the debate private. Developing newer, cheaper techniques to synthesize human gene pairs would benefit science, but aspiring to recreate the full genome synthetically may have unintended consequences and scare away public funding, they argue. And if the meeting was about synthetic human gen…

The Tale of Four Hearts (Part 2) Continued from here

“Don’t do anything. We’re OK.J J ;) ;) ” That’s the next message I see from Sheetal, as I scroll down my inbox archives today. I know. Women!! In spite of being ineffective in splitting up the couple, which I knew – and still know – is what Sheetal needed, this hiccup in their relationship holds a huge significance to me. This was the genesis of a deep friendship between me and Sheetal. My depression wasn’t getting any better. I was desperate to trust someone, to open up to someone, to have someone croon me a few words of sympathy. I held on to Sheetal like a drowning man to a straw. She didn’t hold back. We became the best of friends, sharing everything about Ranja and a tiny little bit about Rahul. (Sheetal is a Bharatiya Nari, remember? ;)) Months passed by. Our exams ended. Rahul travelled to another university in a different city for his internship. And then one day I received a call from him. It fills me with anger, pain and shock as I relive that call even today. “You think I’m a f…

NASA records magnetic explosions above Earth

In a first, a fleet of NASA's four spacecrafts, dubbed Magnetospheric Multiscale mission, has recorded magnetic explosions above the Earth. Recent revelations of the recordings, taken in October 2015, showed that when two magnetic fields collide, electrons shoot out from the point of impact in straight lines and then slowly begin to curve in response to the new magnetic fields.

Scientists have published their first findings from the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission.Space might look like a sprawling, inky abyss, but invisible to the human eye is a wealth of magnetic activity. Earth has a magnetic field called the magnetosphere, which is frequently buffeted by solar winds exuded by the Sun. These winds carry their own magnetic field and produce what scientists call a "magnetic reconnection" high above the Earth's surface. In March 2015, NASA launched four spacecraft, known as MMS, so they couldtravel through the magnetosphere and record these reactions. Now, scie…
