The great 17th century physicist Isaac Newton is known for many things.His most fully worked-out example shows how prefixes could modify the meaning of tor, his word for temperature, to produce more specific meanings from exceedingly hot owtor , through pretty hot awtor , warm etor , indifferently cold aytor and extremely cold oytor , with all gradations in between.Tolkien invented an Elvish language for his Lord of the Rings trilogy.These fictional languages usually have limited vocabularies with only a few thousand words, and other than Esperanto—two million people speak it today, mostly concentrated in Europe, East Asia, and South America—they haven t really caught on.True, a Klingon translation of Hamlet exists, and there s a small but passionate online community dedicated to learning the Na Vi language invented by Caltech linguistics professor Paul Frommer for Avatar.The Principia wasn t going to write itself.

Earlier this week we reported that there was evidence the upcoming PlayStation 4/PC game No Man's Sky was going to be delayed by a few weeks, missing its June 21st release date.Developer Hello Games has stated that No Man's Sky will now be released on August 9th, adding an extra seven weeks.Along with sources speaking to Kotaku, the main tip-off about the delay was GameStop altering their marketing materials, covering the June 21st release date with a sticker says "coming soon."Hello Games' Sean Murray wrote on the official PlayStation Blog that the reason for the delay is to make sure No Man's Sky is the absolute best it can be."Making this game is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but we are so close now, and we're prepared to make the tough choices to get it right," he explained, adding "some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards."SOURCE PlayStation Blog

Usually it involves a moment of quiet in the midst of chaos; some singing or the sharing of a few condiments.This is the remarkable story of a crippled American bomber spared by a German fighter pilot.It was a few days before Christmas in 1943, and the Allied bombing campaign in Germany was going at full tilt.Along with an 8,000-pound bomb capacity, the four-engine plane was armed with 11 machine guns and strategically placed armor plating.Somehow, he and the co-pilot managed to get the plane flying level again at about 1,000 feet of elevation.Brass quickly decided that word getting out about a chivalrous German fighter pilot could endanger the lives of other crews if it caused them to let their guard down.
Since the accessory connects wirelessly to any device and has a battery, it was useful while hugging the Universe case and when unattached.The clip-on design can be used on either the front or rear facing cameras, and it includes fisheye, wide angle, macro 10X and macro 15X lenses.While I didn t find an accessory I didn t like, carrying around all the extra gadgets isn t practical.OtterBox said it will potentially support other phones in the future, including a new iPhone that s expected this fall.If you buy into the Universe system, your gadgets shouldn t become obsolete any time soon.Module pricing, though, ranges from $20 for a PolarPro wallet extension to $300 for a Seek thermal camera.
The battery supports Qualcomm's latest fast charging Quick Charge 3.0. It has numerical aperture of f / 1.8 and features like optical and electronic image stabilization and a phase detection autofocus. Other features include fingerprint reader, NFC and Touch Force which we assume is ZTE's version of Apple 3D Touch. ZTE has also introduced a VR headset and Axon 7 is one of the first new phones that support Google's platform for virtual reality, called Daydream. Axon 7 will cost under $ 500 in the US. We will provide details of any Swedish launch.
It seems that now more than ever, Tesla owners are forgetting that their car's Autopilot and Adaptive Cruise Control functions do not turn their cars into fully-autonomous machines.In a video that was posted to YouTube Wednesday, a Tesla Model S is shown navigating itself through mild traffic, until its front bumper meets the rear-end of a van stopped in its lane of traffic.It appears that the Tesla's sensors were following the black wagon directly in front of it, but the sensors were unable to recognize that the wagon maneuvered around the stopped van.You can see the Model S slowing down as the wagon slows down, but then briefly speeding up once the wagon gets around the obstacle.It's only after the wagon takes off and is no longer directly in the Tesla's sight that the car notices the stopped van in its path.Though the incident looks to be relatively low-speed, the description below the YouTube video reads that "the whole front of the car needs to be replaced, including a parking sensor and a steel beam."Also in that description, the uploader said "Yes, I could have reacted sooner, but when the car slows down correctly 1'000 times, you trust it to do it the next time to."Tesla's Autopilot technologies aren't perfect and they don't make the cars fully-autonomous.H/T ElectrekRead the original article on Tech Insider.

You re in the middle of a cocktail party and discover that, to your chagrin, you ve forgotten to refill the ice tray.No worries, try this trick for ice cubes that freeze quickly: fill your ice tray with hot water and put it in the freezer.This phenomenon, called the Mpemba effect, may seem backwards, but actually works reliably well.One explanation has to do with the molecular forces that occur between the oxygen and hydrogen atoms within an individual water molecule called covalent bonds and among water molecules from hydrogen bonds .You can read more about the process here, but for now, if you need ice sooner rather than later, this is your fastest bet—aside from running out to buy a bag of ice, that is.You ve been making ice cubes wrong your entire life .Mic
Earlier today at the Oslo Freedom Forum, the Wickr Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to private communication and uncensored information, announced its first investment in a new secure communications and education app for human rights activists and citizen reporters called Whistler.It s the brain child of Srdja Popović, a Serbian dissident and political activist, and Nico Sell, the founder of the secure messaging service, Wickr and the Wickr Foundation.Harnessing his work with Otpor!, Popović founded the Center for Applied Non-Violent Action and Strategies Canvas , a non-governmental organization that aims to educate activists in successful ways to fight authoritarian regimes — drawing heavily from Popović s own experiences.What we are talking about with Nico is trying to find out about the needs of people in oppressed societies and what technology can offer them, says Popović of Whistler s mission.One of the most powerful things about this is seeing that the recipes for successful non-violent struggle are low-risk and replicable.Featured Image: Sasha Maksymenko/Flickr UNDER A CC BY 2.0 LICENSE

"If we waited a couple of years to address this, it would be too late.That's why the backbone of Imzy is going to be their tipping and payment system.McComas hopes that by building a tipping system into Imzy, there won't be a need for contributors to look outside the community for support.If they put a lot of time into a group, their fellow community members can show appreciation with tips.Soon, he said, Imzy will have an optional feature to show who is being paid with payment details anonymized to provide some transparency.What's fascinating about Imzy is that it's part of a new generation of community platforms that is actively learning from the mistakes of Facebook, Reddit, and other first-generation social networks.

If you like jigsaws, you d love to be on the team at the European Space Agency that created this image.Made up of 7,000 separate files — totalling 32 terabytes of data — the picture provides a completely cloud-free view of the whole of Africa.Each of the vaguely vertical strips in the image was collected by the ESA s Sentinel-2A satellite and measures 180 miles wide.The majority of the images were collected between December 2015 and April 2016.And the space agency is pretty proud of the feat: it says that being able to capture the Tropics cloud-free over the five months is remarkable .
