The arms will move at a snail’s pace, not only because each assembly costs more than 10 million yuan, but their fine metal rods hold millions of thumb-size uranium pallets which together can emit enough heat for more than one gigawatt of electricity, enough to power Tibet’s entire grid.Many people are waiting with bated breath for Sanmen to go online, because the AP1000 “is a simple, genius solution to reduce the risk of nuclear meltdown,” said Xi’an Jiaotong University’s nuclear science professor Shan Jianqiang, the author of several university texts on reactor safety and operation.The AP1000, designed and made by Toshiba Corp’s Westinghouse Electric subsidiary, is equipped with an overhead water tank that can flush the reactor’s core and keep it cool even if every water pump ceases to function in a blackout.Hot water would rise as vapour, dissipating energy from the core’s chain reaction through a heat exchanger into the atmosphere, condense and return to the tank.The impending fuel loading in Zhejiang, the final step before the reactor begins operation, would put China on the map as the first country to begin running arguably the most advanced power plant, overtaking the reactor designer’s home turf, where work has ceased on two reactors in South Carolina.The 2011 nuclear reactor meltdown in Japan’s Fukushima prefecture added to Sanmen’s delays, as it prompted the Chinese government to call an emergency halt on every power plant in China pending safety reviews, including Sanmen.

According to a newly released Foreign Policy report, leaked communications show Wikileaks declined to release a cache of hacked Russian documents in the summer of 2016, dismissing the only partially published records as “already public.” While there will be plenty of talk about this being proof of founder Julian Assange’s loyalties to Russia, it most prominently displays his general hypocrisy and self-interest.Ever since Wikileaks published Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and John Podesta’s email archives, the organisation has been on the outs with many liberals and leftists in the US.It was hard to deny that Assange has held a grudge against Hillary Clinton for many years and, by all appearances, he was willing to take that grudge so far that he’d help get a maniac like Donald Trump elected.Foreign Policy’s report from Thursday will not help the Wikileaks founder gain much credibility in his denials.Foreign Policy was able to view partial chat logs from the time and was given details by a source that provided the internal communications.The logs show only Wikileaks’ side of the conversation, with an unidentified representative reportedly writing, “As far as we recall these are already public.” In 2014, the BBC reported on some of the hacked materials that were being offered to Assange, but according to Foreign Policy, that was less than half of the materials that Wikileaks turned down in 2016.

Asus has pushed out a new 27-inch curved screen monitor which boasts some nifty tech to facilitate smooth frame rates, and doesn’t break the bank considering what it has on board, going up for pre-order at $350 (around £270, AU$440).The ROG Strix XG27VQ is a 27-inch panel boasting an 1800R curve, with a refresh rate of 144Hz, and a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080.So yes, it’s just Full HD, but then again not having too many pixels to shift will help in the quest for smoother gameplay and not making your GPU sweat too much (with more chance of maxing out that refresh rate, of course).And it’s certainly smooth frame rates Asus is shooting for here, with support for FreeSync (Adaptive Sync) to combat tearing and stuttering, along with the company’s proprietary ‘low motion blur’ technology.The latter, as the name suggests, is designed to minimize any motion blur or smearing, so graphics look sharper and are generally more fluid in fast action scenes.Furthermore, Asus has incorporated ultra-low blue light filters to be kind to your eyes, as well as flicker-free technology towards the same end.

The technical specialist was in the middle of the office at Google when a white male colleague began joking with her about her hiring.“He said, ‘It must’ve been really easy for you to get your job because you’re an Asian woman and people assume you’re good at math,’” Zhang recalled in a recent interview.“I didn’t see a lot of women, especially Asian women, black women or other women of color in the executive ranks,” she said.“I didn’t see any opportunities for myself … The culture there is really discouraging, and that’s ultimately why I left.”Zhang spoke with the Guardian days after a white male engineer at Google sparked an international uproar with a memo criticizing diversity initiatives, arguing that white men are victims of discrimination and that women are underrepresented in tech because they are biologically less suited to engineering and leadership positions.They described a culture that tolerates racism and sexism, where white male managers frequently support and promote employees who look like themselves.

That's especially true for those in the throes of a 9-to-5 life, tethered by a corporate leash that doesn't afford them the luxury of time or travel.It's straightforward -- build a converting offer.When you can create an offer that converts, then optimize that conversion rate, you could almost infinitely scale your ad spend and continue to churn a profit, effectively making money while you sleep.The sale happens over time, by building a relationship with the consumer, and by constantly feeding them value and ensuring that whatever it is that you're peddling, it solves a problem and alleviates some pain points.Consider things like PDF checklists, free ebooks, trial memberships, and so on.Oftentimes, a small tweak in your headline can lead to massive results.

A team of scientists working out of the University of California has successfully managed to delete a memory of fear from the minds of mice, potentially opening up another avenue for treatment in fear conditions like PTSD and neurotic phobias.Fear is one of the essential tools for any living organism to survive.The instinct to avoid dark woods and deep water is a deep rooted fear that keeps us safe from bears and sharks.But there are times when fear goes beyond our necessity for survival, and becomes debilitating.The ability to delete negative memories could prove life changing for people who have experienced traumatic events and have their lives negatively affected by the repercussions.According to its findings, the team has managed to achieve this feat by using a technique called optogenetics.

Germany's Eyeo, the maker of the popular Adblock Plus browser extension that's used by hundreds of millions of people, has won another round of victories over media companies that sued it in the country.Adblock Plus, as the name suggests, prevents ads from appearing in front of its users' eyes, unless their publishers are on a whitelist of companies that only use "acceptable ads".Adblock Plus means ads that don't pop out, auto-play video and do other annoying things to attract people's attention.Most controversially, the largest publishers in terms of ad impressions have to pay Adblock Plus a cut of their ad revenue to be on the whitelist -- the standard rate is 30 percent -- although their ads still need to meet the standard criteria for acceptability.A host of publishers and broadcasters, which depend on advertising for their revenue, have sued Adblock Plus over the past few years, including Axel Springer, Die Zeit, Handelsblatt, RTL Interactive, ProSiebenSat.1 and Süddeutsche Zeitung.All failed, with one partial exception: in June last year, Bild publisher Axel Springer got the Cologne higher regional court to rule it was illegal for Eyeo to charge Springer for the privilege of whitelisting.
