(Eindhoven University of Technology) Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology developed a tiny plastic robot, made of responsive polymers, which moves under the influence of light and magnetism. In the future this 'wireless aquatic polyp' should be able to attract and capture contaminant particles from the surrounding liquid or pick up and transport cells for analysis in diagnostic devices. The researchers published their results in the journal PNAS.
Get the latest on coronavirus. Sign up to the Daily Brief for news, explainers, how-tos, opinion and more.The number of people who have died in the UK after testing positive for coronavirus has risen by 11 over 24 hours – the lowest daily rise since early March.The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said 44,830 people had died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK as of 5pm on Sunday, up from 44,819 the previous day.This is the lowest number reported by DHSC since March 12 – when one death was recorded. But reporting is often lower on weekends and the government figures do not include all deaths involving Covid-19 across the UK, which are thought to have passed 55,500. Here’s a quick primer on what all the different numbers mean and how to understand them.The DHSC also said that in the 24-hour period up to 9am on Monday, there had been a further 530 lab-confirmed UK cases. Overall, a total of 290,133 cases have been confirmed.The figures come as Boris Johnson has urged the public to wear face coverings in shops, and said an announcement on whether their use will be compulsory in England will be made in the coming days. The prime minister said that ministers are considering what “tools of enforcement” could be employed as he described the evidence to support their use to slow the spread of coronavirus as “growing”.Downing Street said on Monday that a formal review was under way after the government faced calls for clarity on the subject.But Labour called on the Government to address the “confusion” around the use of non-surgical masks “without delay”.Stricter measures for shoppers in England could bring the nation into line with Scotland, where first minister Nicola Sturgeon made their use compulsory in shops as of Friday.The PM, wearing a covering during a visit to the London Ambulance Service, said they “have a great deal of value in confined spaces” where people are coming into contact with those they do not normally meet.He said: “Yes face coverings, I think people should be wearing in shops and in terms of how we do that, whether we will be making that mandatory or not we will be looking at the guidance, we will be saying a little bit more in the next few days.“We will be looking in the next few days about exactly how, with what tools of enforcement, we think we want to make progress.“As the virus comes down in incidence and we have more and more success, I think face coverings are a kind of extra insurance we can all use to stop it coming back and stop it getting out of control again.”Meanwhile, Wales’s First Minister Mark Drakeford said the nation would be brought into line with England and Scotland when face coverings are made compulsory on public transport in Wales from July 27.Related...

When you’re traveling in a foreign country where you don’t speak the language, getting directions to where you’re going can be a bit complicated.Google Translate can be super-useful when it comes to having that conversation, but if you already have Google Maps open, that means you need to toggle back and forth between the two apps to successfully communicate with that guy on the street and view the map at the same time.Starting today, Google is rolling out a feature to Google Maps that should make that whole process a bit easier.Google is bringing Google Maps and Google Translate a little closer together by bringing part of Translate into Google Maps.Now, when you’re looking for a landmark or even your hotel, you can tap on a button within Google Maps to have the name of your destination and the address read out in the local language.The pronunciation option will appear in the form of a small speaker icon beside the name and address of your destination.
Gallium nitride chargers have been getting better fast since they first came out earlier this year — we started with 30W and 45W chargers, then small 61W bricks, then a 60W charger with two USB-C ports, and there was a small 65W charger with two USB-C ports and a USB-A port in September.But now we might have a new wall charging king, as Hyper launched a Kickstarter for the HyperJuice 100W GaN charger — which delivers the maximum amount of power that USB-C can muster under the current standard, in a package that’s about the size of a deck of cards.Here it is, demonstrating a grand total of two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports:It also has built-in prongs on the back that you flip out so you can plug it into an outlet.But be careful plugging it into a wall — the charger sticks out far enough that it looks pretty easy to run into and accidentally knock out:The charger can push a full 100 watts of power — which could theoretically let you fully power a powerful 15-inch MacBook Pro and an iPhone 11 Pro simultaneously, or a 13-inch Pro and a MacBook Air — because it’s using gallium nitride (GaN), which is more efficient than silicon because it can sustain higher voltages and can run current faster than silicon can — which all has the benefit of opening up more possibilities for small yet powerful charging devices like the HyperJuice.
An Australian man pleaded guilty this week in the country's Magistrates Court to stalking his ex-girlfriend, largely through the use of an app that tracked and controlled her car.The 38-year-old man, who worked as a mechanic for the Army’s Royal Australian Corps of Transport at the time, allegedly engaged in a string of unhinged behaviour that left his former partner with a fear of technology, according to a report for Australia’s ABC News.“These crimes have made me feel unsafe.Made me fear the technology I once embraced and left me with a deep distrust of the cybersecurity protections and laws currently in place, now I know they can be exploited,” the victim, who works in digital technology, told the court, according to ABC.“As a professional working in the industry, it has shaken me to learn what the offender did to my car is even possible.As a victim it has caused trauma so deep that it’s hard to adequately describe.”

Just this week, we saw hundreds of Facebook employees co-sign a letter to Mark Zuckerberg condemning the site’s ad policies.Workers at some of the world’s biggest tech firms, including Amazon and Google, have published similar letters to company leaders in recent years.And employees at Salesforce, Microsoft, and Microsoft-owned Github have signed internal open letters which later became public.To help understand these campaigns – we talked to two scholars about what makes publicity-based activism work.Chelsea Woods, an assistant professor at Virginia Tech specialising in public relations, explained that corporations can be broadly categorised as either “public-driven” or “profit-driven.”“Public-driven companies appear to be concerned about their social impact and reputations,” Woods told Gizmodo.
There’s always Twin Peaks in the air, whether it’s rumours of a fourth season or the sight of David Lynch picking up an honorary Oscar.The next entry in the cherry pie sweepstakes is Twin Peaks: From Z to A, a giant Blu-ray set celebrating the cult series that comes out early next year.Fans of any pop culture property know there’s nothing more annoying than buying the “complete” version of something, only to discover that a new, more complete version of the thing is about to hit stores.Twin Peaks fans have been through this a few times.But unless Lynch decides he wants to reconnect with Agent Cooper and company a fourth time, Twin Peaks: From Z to A sure feels like the last Twin Peaks box set you will ever need to buy.You can behold the unfurled majesty of Twin Peaks: From Z to A’s 21-disc Blu-ray set at the top of this post – yes, that is a nifty little acrylic die-cut of Coop and Laura in the Red Room – but the real allure is what’s inside.

Buying AT's cheapest unlimited plan still comes with the risk of getting your data throttled to speeds slower than those provided to other customers when the network is congested.The possible throttling can be imposed at any time, even if a customer hasn't used much data that month.But while upgrading to pricier plans currently only gives AT customers 22GB a month before possible throttling, the plans coming out soon have options for at least 50GB or 100GB of un-throttled use.It costs $70 per month for one line (not including taxes and fees), with the per-line prices descending with each additional line you buy.Each line costs $40 a month if you buy four lines.It comes with a big restriction.
On midnight last Friday, all over the United States, an alliance of magical practitioners called the Magic Resistance gathered Tarot cards, feathers, orange and white candles, pins, water, salt, matches, ashtrays, and unflattering photos of President Trump.The objects are prerequisites for a binding spell, an incantation typically used to keep someone from harming themselves or others, like a magical strait jacket.They use the pin to scratch “Donald J. Trump” into the orange candle (baby carrots are a sanctioned substitute), and read aloud a spell first posted on Medium.It begins: “Hear me, oh spirits of Water, Fire, Earth, and Air, heavenly hosts, demons of the infernal realms, and spirits of the ancestors … I call upon you to bind Donald J. Trump so that his malignant works may fail utterly.” It ends with burning the unflattering Trump photo and telling it, “You’re fired!”The binding ritual is the 33rd of its kind, the Magic Resistance having performed during each waning crescent moon since February 24, 2017, but in the eyes of the witches and other occultists performing the rite, each instance has been a success.In 1967, during the Vietnam War, the Youth International Party, better known as the yippies, decided that the Pentagon was in need of an exorcism—and a levitation.
Can you imagine a world where Apple had never started the trend of throwing lowercase letters in front of other words?What if there were no iMac or iPod?That's the kind of world I'd like to live in, especially now that the corporate complex has also conscripted poor letter e into its service.Case in point, Honda -- a company not necessarily known for its hybrid and electrified options despite being one of the first companies to sell a hybrid-electric vehicle to consumers -- has decided to rebrand its forthcoming hybrid models as (and I hate typing this) "e:HEV" which is supposed to stand for Hybrid Electric Vehicle, according to a report published Monday by GreenCarReports.Does e:HEV look more futuristic than just calling something a Hybrid?Totally, but we don't live in Star Citizen or The Expanse, so it's my guess that it'll just end up confusing buyers.
