The Wyoming facility is to rely entirely on energy from three nearby wind projectsMicrosoft has said a data centre it operates in Cheyenne, Wyoming, will be powered entirely by wind energy following its purchase of 237 megawatts of wind power, the company s largest such buy to date.The facility, used to help power cloud-based services including Microsoft s Azure cloud platform, will use 178 megawatts from the Bloom Wind Project in Kansas and another 59 megawatts from the Happy Jack and Silver Sage wind farms in Wyoming, Microsoft said. The combined output of the Bloom and Happy Jack/Silver Sage projects will produce enough energy on an annual basis to cover the energy used at the datacenter, said Brad Smith, Microsoft s president and chief legal officer.The company said the way it structured the purchases could set a precedent making future large renewable energy deals easier to carry out.For the Bloom purchase, Microsoft contracted with Allianz Risk Transfer ART , which in May announced a financial instrument intended to offer Bloom stable long-term revenues to offset its high up-front costs.Microsoft said it is the first buyer in the ART arrangement.

One of the wildest things that happens in nature is caterpillars go to sleep one day and then transform into a damn butterfly after a month.I thought that as a kid, and I still think it now.Like, that s the closest thing we ve got to actual sorcery on Earth.But it s just an egg turning into a larva to a pupa to a butterfly.Watch as David Attenborough explain the process as only he can in this clip from Micro Monsters.Plus, you get to see super gnarly footage of the butterfly emerging from its chrysalis like some sort of hatching alien.

A scientist s performance is often judged on two factors: productivity, as measured through the number of publications; and impact, as indicated by the number of times those papers are cited.It's generally thought that impact peaks early in a scientist's career, while having a mature, established research program boosts productivity.But little is actually known about how productivity and impact evolve over time.In a recent investigation published in Science, people actually looked at how these measures change throughout the course of a scientist s career, finding that our assumptions aren't always well founded.The impact was captured by the total number of citations 10 years after publication.The team also grouped the scientists based on their peak impact, regardless of when it occurred: high maximum impact top 5 percent , low maximum impact bottom 20 percent , and medium maximum impact middle 75 percent .

But when the government needs just one night to count more than 100 million ballots—in 2012, total voter turnout was just over 129 million—people might wonder how it did the job accurately.But when it comes to tallying who won the popular vote, you don t need a crack team of high-speed ballot counters.Like many aspects of the electoral system, ballot counting and reporting processes vary widely by state, and sometimes by county.It is so variable, says Heather Gerken, a Yale Law School election law expert who was senior legal advisor to the 2008 and 2012 Obama for America campaigns.In some places like LA county, results are reported as one enormous county.But Maine has 533 separate units, and you used to have to call them all to find out what was happening.

The three-pronged Trident attack allowed oppressive regimes to spy on activist.Researchers have given more detail of the sophisticated spyware discovered in August which exploited three separate vulnerabilities in order to spy on iPhone users.The discovery of the flaws led to Apple quickly releasing a security update for iPhones and iPads, after the security researchers had discovered that vulnerabilities in the iOS operating system were being used by a nation state to spy on activists in the Middle East.The spying tools were discovered by security firm Lookout, which worked in conjunction with the University of Toronto's Citizen Lab to get to the bottom of who was behind the espionage software.This spyware was capable of completely compromising a target's phone, allowing those conducting the espionage to monitor and track every action on the device.In this case, the espionage tools were being used by actors -- likely to be associated with the United Arab Emirates government -- to attempt to spy on Ahmed Mansoor, a renowned human rights defender.

That bizarre scenario could take place for real, should the theorists behind the "IoT worm" concept be right about what depressing road our stupid connected smart technology is taking us down.A paper suggesting a massive chain reaction of tech failures is behind this latest bit of doom, with the authors using the Philips Hue smart lightbulb and the drone's ZigBee wireless system as their in -- and things progressing apocalyptically from there by using worms to infiltrate more devices, so that within minutes of a future attack the cash machines might stop working and everyone's looting JD Sports.They've put together a concept execution of an IoT drone attack:The idea behind the attack was to initiate a malicious firmware update of the Hue bulbs via drone, then use that to trigger blackouts or fire off DDoS attacks that could cripple a city -- letting bad people steal everything.Here they only hacked some bulbs to flash S.O.S.in morse code, with the hackers generously telling Philips about the vulnerability they used to crack the Hues rather than crashing the whole world.
