A major issue facing ITER, the international tokamak under construction in France that will be the first magnetic fusion device to produce net energy, is whether the crucial divertor plates that will exhaust waste heat from the device can withstand the high heat flux, or load, that will strike them.Alarming projections extrapolated from existing tokamaks suggest that the heat flux could be so narrow and concentrated as to damage the tungsten divertor plates in the seven-story, 23,000 ton tokamak and require frequent and costly repairs.This flux could be comparable to the heat load experienced by spacecraft re-entering Earth's atmosphere.Results of the collaboration, which has spent two years simulating the heat flux, indicate that the width could be well within the capacity of the divertor plates to tolerate.Chang's team used the highly sophisticated XGC1 plasma turbulence computer simulation code developed at PPPL to create the new estimate.The simulation projected a width of 6 millimeters for the heat flux in ITER when measured in a standardized way among tokamaks, far greater than the less-than 1 millimeter width projected through use of experimental data.
Over the last 17 years, scientists and engineers have developed synthetic gene circuits that can program the functionality, performance, and behavior of living cells.Analogous to integrated circuits that underlie myriad electronic products, engineered gene circuits can be used to generate defined dynamics, rewire endogenous networks, sense environmental stimuli, and produce valuable biomolecules.To date, most circuits are constructed through a trial-and-error manner, which relies heavily on a designer's intuition and is often inefficient, said University of Illinois Bioengineering Associate Professor Ting Lu."With the increase of circuit complexity, the lack of predictive design guidelines has become a major challenge in realizing the potential of synthetic biology," said Lu, who also is affiliated with the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology and Physics Department at Illinois.Typical models regard gene circuits as isolated entities that do not interact with their hosts and focus only on the biochemical processes within the circuits, noted Lu."Although highly valuable, the current modeling paradigm is often incapable of quantitatively, or even qualitatively sometimes, describing circuit behaviors," he said.
There is a narrative emerging around Facebook that implies the social-networking giant cannot prevent the spread of fake news, Russian political messages, and ads targeting hate groups on its platform.Like Dr. Frankenstein, Facebook created a monster!Facebook’s sheer scale means it could never successfully police the gazillion pieces of content its 2 billion users create and share every second.Announcing new tools last week to police things like Russia’s purchase of political ads, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook could do better, but tried to set expectations: “I’m not going sit here and tell you that we’re going to catch all bad content in our system.” He framed his reasoning in terms of freedom of speech: “We don’t check what people say before they say it, and frankly, I don’t think society should want us to.”There’s a small problem with this argument: Facebook has repeatedly shown it can police content on its platform, particularly when doing so affects its $27 billion business.In 2011, when Facebook decided that games from companies such as Zynga were disrupting the way people used Facebook, it limited how many messages gaming companies could send to Facebook’s users.
That might also be the reason you'll have to wait longer to get Apple's most premium phone.The front-facing 3D sensor that helps make Apple's Face ID stand out is allegedly facing production difficulties, according to a Nikkei Asian Review report.Although Apple announced the iPhone X at the same time as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the X won't go on sale until Nov. 3 -- over a month and a half after the 8's Sept. 22 release.Apple didn't say whether this because it wanted to stagger the sale of the iPhone models or because the iPhone X is taking longer to make, but plenty of reports have claimed the latter.Nikkei Asian Review reports that two executives working for iPhone suppliers said manufacturers are struggling to make enough of the 3D sensors, which could bottleneck the production process.Moreover, the iPhone X will be churned out in small quantities -- in the tens of thousands per day -- versus hundreds of thousands per day.
It was the shot heard round the world.In February, NBA star Kyrie Irving, then a Cleveland Cavalier, insisted the Earth was flat.At the time, I feared he might be joking.Then, he declared that not only is the Earth flat but also that he controls his dreams.Appearing on 98.5The Sports Hub's "Toucher & Rich" radio show, Irving confessed, "All I wanted to do is be able to have that open conversation."Well, he certainly managed that.
The trip from Libya to Italy costs 2900 Libyan dinar.The pages paint a deceiving picture of the reality people face when trying to cross the Mediterranean, referring to “7 hour trips” to waiting Italian Coastguard boats using pictures of relatively sturdy wooden boats.The reality is very different - HuffPost UK last month witnessed first hand how migrants are packed onto unseaworthy inflatable dinghies not designed to cross seas.Consequently these vessels often collapse, throwing their occupants into the sea and creating a corrosive mix of fuel and seawater.Aboard the NGO rescue ship, the Aquarius, HuffPost UK saw the transfer of eight burned bodies of people who had drowned attempting the journey.Under pressure from the House and Senate intelligence committees investigating Russian meddling in the US election, Mark Zuckerberg made a rare public statement, saying: ”“I care deeply about the democratic process and protecting its integrity.
Every US immigrant's social media history is up for grabs starting Oct. 18.The Department of Homeland Security quietly introduced a new regulation last week that would allow the agency to collect data from all immigrants' social media history, including posts from their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.It would also affect green card holders and naturalized citizens.The new provision, introduced to the Federal Register on Sept. 18, was first spotted by Buzzfeed News.The rules surrounding privacy can blur at US borders, especially if immigrants are involved.Digital privacy at the borders has increasingly become an issue for immigrants trying to enter the US.
Somewhere in a dentist's office far, far away, Dr. J. Steven Abernathy is marshaling the rebel forces to launch a root canal procedure.The Arkansas laser dentistry specialist released a Star Wars spoof video last week that makes the dreaded treatment feel like a rollicking sci-fi adventure.The video, brought to our attention by Geekologie, drops Abernathy, wearing a very un-Jedi Hawaiian shirt, into the 1977 "Star Wars" movie scene where the forces of good plan the trench-run attack on Darth Vader's Death Star."Lasers aren't just for X-wings anymore," Abernathy declares as he sells the benefits of using laser technology for root canals.The video isn't content to stop there.We get a snippet of the actual trench run with Abernathy as the pilot.

A week into iOS 11, Apple's new software for iPhones and iPads, and Apple is already addressing bugs.The first update, iOS 11.0.1, doesn't go into details about specific changes to security or new features.Consider it a minor tweak aimed at smoothing over some rough spots in iOS 11.Apple just points to bug fixes and improvements.While this may seem like small potatoes, changes to iOS affect a huge number of iPhone users.Unlike Android software updates, which trickle out as individual phone-makers and carriers adopt the new features, Apple makes iOS available to a long list of iPhones and iPads all at the same time.
The first words of "Ingrid Goes West" are "Is this real?In this scathing social media satire, Aubrey Plaza wipes the filter off the edifying artifice of stage-managed and carefully constructed online stars.Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza plays Ingrid, a troubled young woman with a pathological case of FOMO.Then she fixates on Venice Beach-based online influencer Taylor Sloane, played by Elizabeth Olsen.Taylor and Ingrid entertain their followers with Joan Didion quotes and Rihanna lyrics copied and pasted magpie-like beneath comically stage-managed selfies.Plaza does so much with just a flash of her eyes or a tightening of her lips.
Google has offered to ringfence its online shopping business from its dominant search engine in a bid to placate European competition watchdogs and avoid further multi-billion euro fines.Under plans expected to be revealed later this week, the internet giant will force Google Shopping to compete against other price comparison websites for advertising space in Google’s search results.In June the commission fined Google €2.4bn (£2.1bn), saying it had broken competition law by highlighting the shopping service in its searches at the expense of price comparison sites like Foundem and Kelkoo.It was given until September 28 - Thursday - to stop breaking the rules, although the commission left it largely up to Google about how to do so.Q | Why is Google being fined?Google has a 90 per cent share of internet searches around Europe, making it a monopoly.
