NASA's Terra satellite provided an infrared look at Tropical Storm Trami, located just over 100 miles from Guam on Sept. 21.Infrared data provides temperature information that showed two areas of the highest, coldest cloud tops and most powerful storms within the tropical storm.NOAA's National Weather Service (NWS) in Tiyan, Guam said that a flash flood watch is in effect for all of Guam and the northern Marianas.A small craft advisory remains in effect until 6 a.m. CHST local time on Sunday, Sept. 23.Because Tropical Storm Trami (28W) continues to move away from the Marianas the threat of damaging winds has ended.At 2:20 a.m. EDT (0230 UTC) on Sept. 13, Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite analyzed Hurricane Florence in infrared light.

Announced over a year ago, Apple's AirPower charging pad continues to be MIA.Some recent detective work indicates it may yet exist, but if you're tired of waiting, there's an alternative.Today only, and while supplies last, Woot has the iPM 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad for $39.99.It can charge two iPhones (or any Qi-compatible phones) and an Apple Watch, all at the same time.Can this iPM product also charge AirPods, as the AirPower was originally said to be able to?That will depend on whether the wireless-compatible AirPods charging case is Qi-compatible, if and when it's ever released.

New 3D maps of water distribution during cellular membrane fusion are accelerating scientific understanding of cell development, which could lead to new treatments for diseases associated with cell fusion.The research, published in Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, could provide new insights into diseases in which normal cell fusion is disrupted, such as Albers-Schönberg disease (osteopetrosis), help facilitate the development of fusion-based cell therapies for degenerative diseases, and lead to treatments that prevent cell-to-cell fusion between cancer cells and non-cancer cells.When two cells combine during fertilization, or a membrane-bound vesicle fuses during viral entry, neuron signaling, placental development and many other physiological functions, the semi-permeable membrane bilayers between the fusing partners must be merged to exchange their internal contents.Researchers used the small-angle neutron scattering (EQ-SANS) instrument at ORNL's Spallation Neutron Source and the biological small-angle neutron scattering (Bio-SANS) instrument at the High Flux Isotope Reactor, both of which can probe structures as small as a few nanometers in size."We used neutrons to probe our samples, because water typically can't be seen by x-rays, and because other imaging techniques can't accurately capture the extremely rapid and dynamic process of cellular fusion," said Durgesh K. Rai, co-author and now a post-doctoral associate at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source at Cornell University."Additionally, the cold, lower-energy neutrons at EQ-SANS and Bio-SANS won't cause radiation damage or introduce radicals that can interfere with lipid chemistry, as x-rays can do."

China is trying to become an innovation hub in the autonomous vehicle sector—it is currently working on a draft bill mandating that 50% of all vehicles sold by 2020 should be autonomous or semi-autonomous.Cities across China have opened up their roads for testing autonomous vehicles (AVs), with localities including Shanghai, Chongqing, Beijing, and Shenzhen setting up designated pilot areas.China’s big three tech giants—Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent—are all competing for dominance in the self-driving space.Additionally, startups looking to develop their own self-driving platforms have sprung up.While all of the nascent frameworks are highly disparate, they all require on-vehicle sensors.However, Wang Gang, chief scientist at Alibaba AI Labs, believes the future lies not in cars being equipped with sensors, but the roads themselves becoming active participants in the sensing process.

Based on my experience of being hired as a social media marketer and from doing the hiring, here are tips on when it’s time to hire.Is there already a marketing specialist on board?If you’re a team of one and your social media presence takes up 50 percent of your day, a social media marketing hire might be a good decision to help you get back to running other parts of your business.If, say, a marketing specialist is handling social media duties, how will a new hire impact that person?If not, is it because you don’t think there’s a need or, alternatively, because no one has done it yet?If you have an established presence, but you don’t see much activity, maybe it’s best to focus on another area of marketing at this time.

Will the computers of tomorrow be manufactured, or will they be cultivated?This question lies at the heart of new research from Lehigh University that aims to engineer a neural network--a computer system modeled on the human brain and nervous system--from actual living cells, and program it to compute a basic learning task."Recent developments in optogenetics, patterned optical stimulation, and high-speed optical detection enable simultaneous stimulation and recording of thousands of living neurons," says Xiaochen Gao, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Lehigh University and principal investigator on the project."And scientists already know that connected biological living neurons naturally exhibit the ability to perform computations and to learn.The team, which includes Lehigh associate professors and co-principal investigators Yevgeny Berdichevsky of bioengineering and Zhiyuan Yan of electrical and computer engineering, brings together complementary expertise in computer architecture, bioengineering, and signal processing.In the research, images of handwritten digits will be encoded into what are called "spike train stimuli," similar to a two-dimensional bar code.

Recently, for work-related issues, I’ve used the flagship phones of several major Chinese Android phone manufacturers, ranging from Xiaomi 8 and OPPO Find X to OnePlus 6.Xiaomi’s MIUI operating system is easy to navigate, OPPO Find X’s borderless screen is stunningly beautiful, and OnePlus 6 is thin and light and feels good to hold.I’ve used iPhones as my primary phone since the first-generation iPhone.I changed my laptop to MacBook Air from Thinkpad and used it for a long time.For a long period of time, I thought iPhone was my only choice as my primary phone and even though I didn’t update my phone to iPhone 8 or iPhone X, my next phone would still be an iPhone.However, after watching Apple’s September event on Thursday (September 13th), I started feeling uncertain about that thought I had because, for the first time, I found iPhone is replaceable.

Gartner's rollercoaster trundles into exciting world of data managementGartner has turned its annual Hype Cycling gaze upon data management and found that – shock – expectations of Blockchain remain hopelessly inflated.It is first lauded by some press, is subject to marketing bluster, before admins at the coalface realise that, hey, maybe it doesn't work as promised and spend the next few years trying to make the thing actually function in the real world.Gartner squeezed out such a chart for Emerging Technology in August, which was a painful illustration, for investors at least, of how quickly a bubble can burst.For September, it is the turn of the somewhat more sober landscape of data management.Hadoop received a bit of a kicking in Gartner's 2017 report, which reckoned that enterprises saw more benefit in cloud-based data options than dealing with complexity of the Hadoop stack.

What happened: China’s supreme court has released rules for newly-formed internet-related courts, ordering them to recognize digital data as evidence if they have been verified by methods including blockchains.The court stated that evidence that has been verified by other methods including digital signatures and timestamps should also be accepted.Why it’s important: China has been moving to set up courts that deal specifically with internet-related issues as well as pushing the adoption of blockchain in government services.In 2017, the country set up the first court of this kind in Hangzhou, which has so far handled over 10,000 cases including cases of defamation, lending, and domain issues.In addition, China has been promoting the development of blockchain, with the technology being mentioned in the country’s latest five-year plan.Local governments have been implementing its use for securing documents including tax invoices, which have often been created fraudulently for numerous reasons, including tax deductions and remuneration from employers.
