Scientists pulverize phones to discover whats inside

Apple University of Plymouth/YouTube Generally when someone says smoothie, I think banana. But two scientists at the University of Plymouth in the UK think a little differently. They think “iPhone”.To encourage greater recycling rates to better appreciate exactly what materials go in to producing the handheld supercomputers we slip into our pockets every day, two geologists at the University of Plymouth have stuck an iPhone into a blender, pulverized it to dust and then chemically analyzed its composition.Smartphones have become so ubiquitous it’s kind of hard to imagine a world without them. We take them for granted. They’re just there. But of course, it takes a whole lot of energy to build one — and plenty of mining.By blending up the iPhone (without the battery!) and mixing it with an oxidizer at around 500 degrees Celsius (approx. 932 degrees Fahrenheit), the researchers were able to find exactly what the iPhone was composed of. They noted a wide range of elements, including the usual suspects of iron, nickel and silicon, but surprisingly they also found around 90 milligrams of silver, 900mg of tungsten and 36mg of gold.”This means that concentration-wise, a phone has 100 times more gold – or 10 times more tungsten – than a mineral resource geologists would call ‘high-grade’,” wrote Alan Williams, the media and communications officer at the University of Plymouth.The team also produced a video of their exploits, where you can see the iPhone getting destroyed by spinning blades.

In September 2018, Apple committed to using more recyclables in their iPhones, in addition to moving to renewable energy sources to power their manufacturing. In January, Samsung committed to replacing its plastic packaging with sustainable materials and in its US, Chinese and European facilities it has pledged it will switch to 100 percent renewable energy by 2020. Of course, this is not the first time the iPhone has met death by blender. The popular YouTube channel “Will It Blend?” first threw an iPhone into a blender some 12 years ago, racking up an impressive 12 million views. That video, below, grinds the original iPhone down to a fine dust. Notably, the researchers used the same blender to pulverize their own test smartphone, except this time the analysis was a little more refined. Apple iPhone XS If watching a perfectly usable smartphone being smashed to pieces isn’t your thing, maybe you’ll enjoy seeing Jar Jar Binks gets obliterated instead. And if all of this has you wondering about sorting yourself out with a shiny new blender, well CNET has you covered there, too. You can check out our best blender recommendations for 2019.

Govt plans 2nd nuclear plant in Barishal PM

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks while inaugurating the Golden Jubilee programme of Barisal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College (BSMC) through video conference from her Ganabhaban residence on Monday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday said the second nuclear power plant would be constructed in the southern part of the country.“The government has already conducted survey in several islands in Barisal and we will choose any of those islands to construct the country’s next nuclear power plant,” the premier said this while inaugurating the Golden Jubilee programme of Barisal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College (BSMC) through video conference from her Ganabhaban residence.The prime minister said a feasibility study is also going on to supply gas from Bhola to Barisal aimed at flourishing industries in the region.Health minister Mohammad Nasim spoke on the occasion from BSMC premises while state minister for health and family welfare Zahid Malik was present at the Ganabhaban.Later, the prime minister exchanged views with government officials, teachers and former students of the college and assured them of taking projects to resolve the residential problems of the teachers, students, nurses and staffs.Pointing out her government’s plans for development of country’s southern part, the prime minister said the region was neglected for a long time. Barisal, once known as the ‘Shashya Bhandar’ (crop storage) and ‘Venice of Bangla’ has lost its glory due to negligence.The present government after taking office in 1996 has been conducting massive development work in the southern part of the country particularly for improving the communications system.‘We want to regain the glory of Barisal through boosting agricultural production, industrialisation and infrastructural development of the region,” she said.The Padma Bridge along with rail line would play important role in socioeconomic development of Barisal, she said adding that the rail line on Padma Bridge would go up to Paira Port via Barisal. A feasibility study of the project, with the support of the British government, is being conducted, she added.Sheikh Hasina said bridges are being constructed on Paira River, Bishkhali River and Agunmakha River to establish direct road communication from Barisal to Bhola and Barguna.Sheikh Hasina said the Paira Port will be turned into a deep sea port in future. Construction of a 1300 MW power plant is about to be completed, she said.Sheikh Hasina said to ensure healthcare services for all the government has established 18,500 community clinics and union health centres across the country. Besides, the government has taken steps to ensure food security and nutrition for everyone.The government has established institutes for treatment of kidney, neurology, cancer, ENT and ophthalmology, burn and plastic surgery as well as created post graduate nursing institutes to provide high quality nursing services to patients.Later, the prime minister through a video conference from her Ganabhaban residence inaugurated four multistoried building comprising 345 flats constructed at Doyagonj and Dhalpur for cleaners of the Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC).LGRD and cooperatives minister Khandakar Mosharraf Hossain spoke on the occasion while senior secretary of the LGRD and cooperatives Jafar Ahmed Khan gave a presentation on the project.Mayor of DSCC Mohammad Sayeed Khokon, chief executive officer Khan Mohammad Bilal and a number of beneficiaries of the project spoke on the occasion from Doyagonj side.The government in 2013 took up the project for constructing five residential buildings at Doyagonj, five at Dhalpur and two at Sutrapur at a cost of Tk 1,900 million for cleaners of the city corporation.Under the project four buildings were inaugurated today, Monday and construction work of eight other buildings is going on.Addressing the function the prime minister hoped that children of the cleaners will get proper education and prepare themselves in operating modern equipment of cleaning.She said the government would procure modern vehicles and equipment for conservancy department of the city corporations to conduct daily cleaning operation.“We want every homeless person to get home. The cleaners provide us services to keep our neighborhood neat and clean. So it’s the duty of the government to give them a clean environment to live in,” she added.last_img read more

Review Biometrics Technologies Measure Up Part 13

first_imgBiometric door lock – uses your fingerprint to open – runs off batteries and has key for emergencies Inexpensive print reader for PC security – comes with software – connects to computer via USB port The second most popular device, which has actually been on the market and in use longer, is the hand reader. This device works by measuring the dimensions of your hand – normally the fingers.Everybody has different length fingers. Even if you do run into someone with similar finger length, the combination of various finger lengths essentially eliminates the possibility of false identification. For example: your index finger might be the exact same length as somebody else’s, but the chances that 2 of more of your fingers are the same length are vanishingly small.Backlighting and lasers were used in early models but now electrical conduction is the method of choice to measure fingers – fewer technical problems, lower power requirements.It works by measuring the electrical conduction of your hand. The user places his or her hand on a metal or plastic plate with two or more studs protruding for finger alignment. A second later the device detects a small current at the point where the hand touches the plate. It then measures these areas and compares the findings to an internal database. Unlike fingerprint scanners, hand readers do not require a computer – needed processing is done internally – although some can be connected to a computer for time clock applications via a standard network connection or serial cable.Most units also have a keypad for entering in user data and ID numbers. Available models can store from 50 to over 500 individual hand measurements.This technology also presents some false positives from time to time when users fail to correctly locate their hand on the scanner plate. Many require the keying of an ID code to make identification 100% positive.These units tend to be very robust and ideal for users with dirty or worn hands like factories and assembly plants. Their self-contained nature means they can be installed virtually anywhere.To Be Continued … (in part 2: Eye Scanners, Face Recognition, and Pattern Recognition) Copyright 2005 PhysOrg.com Like any relatively new technology there are problems: Finger prints can be covered by callus or worn smooth from heavy use -dirt can get into the print lines and skin can peel – all making print reading more difficult. Some users have problems with less expensive models due to the lack of a well defined center whorl in the middle – something the device needs to find the center and build a code for the print. Since prints are converted to number codes it’s possible for two prints to have the same code. This means each device is limited as to the number of prints it can read without giving a false positive. More money usually gets you models that manage more prints.A new technology that scans the subsurface of your fingerprint – down five skin layers deep – works even when the print is scuffed or dirty. This technology is still new, however, so most fingerprint scanner systems also require a code or PIN of some type to for 100% positive identification.Some fingerprint readers and their applications: Print reader with magnetic card reader for extra security.Hand Scanners The basic reason is simple: biometrics uses body measurements to make positive personal identification without resorting to ID cards, passwords, PINs and other problematic security technologies. Your ID is your body – or a part of it, anyway. This makes ID counterfeiting much more difficult and also insures that ID doesn’t get left behind – short or a very serious mishap, that is.Various technologies have been used over the years and favorites are slowly emerging – along with a host of ethical and privacy issues.Finger Print ScannersThe most common technology in use today by far is fingerprint scanning. This technology is used everywhere from top secret military installations to supermarkets, cell phones and time clocks.Police departments have long used finger prints to track criminals because of their uniqueness – each finger print is different – making positive identification possible for any given individual. Finger print readers use this uniqueness to generate a code – rarely do they actually use the full print for identification – based on areas where line print lines merge, fork or loop – like the round “whorl” you can find in the middle of all finger prints.These devices work by scanning the print with a light source – either a laser or, more commonly, a LED (Light Emitting Diode) – on to a chip. The chip is either a CCD (Charged Couple Device – the same found in digital cameras) or the less expensive CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor). Integrated circuits then generate the code to identify the print.This code is stored in a database – either in a remote computer for cheaper USB models or in the device itself. When a person scans a print, this device compares the code generated by the print with one in the database to make a positive identification. These “print coding” algorithms are closely guarded secrets.Price is probably the most attractive reason to use this technology. Securing your computer with a fingerprint reading mouse cost less than $100. Time clock systems start at around $500. This makes finger print scanning one of the most affordable of all the biometrics technologies.

Sleeping beside your baby can cause cot death

first_imgNew-born babies should be put to bed in the same bedroom as their parents but not on the same bed for the first year of their life. They should be laid on a separate surface or a crib as this may help avoid cot death among infants, researchers have suggested.“Parents should never place the baby on a sofa, couch, or cushioned chair, either alone or sleeping with another person. These surfaces are extremely hazardous,” said lead author Rachel Moon from the University of Virginia in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), also known as cot death or crib death, is the sudden unexplained death of a child less than one year of age. “We know that parents may be overwhelmed with a new baby in the home, and we want to provide them with clear and simple guidance on how and where to put their infant to sleep,” Moon added, in a new policy statement released by the American Academy of Pediatrics.Explaining how to create a safe sleep environment for babies, child health experts recommended skin-to-skin care regardless of feeding or delivery method, immediately following birth for at least an hour as soon as the mother is medically stable and awake. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveWhile infants are at heightened risk for SIDS between the ages one and four months, new evidence shows that soft bedding continues to pose hazards to babies who are four months and older.Thus, after feeding, parents should move the baby to his or her separate sleeping space, preferably a crib or bassinet in the parents’ bedroom. “There should be no pillows, sheets, blankets or other items that could obstruct the infant’s breathing or cause overheating,” noted Lori Feldman-Winter, Professor at Cooper University Hospital in New Jersey, US. “If you are feeding your baby and think that there’s even the slightest possibility that you may fall asleep, feed your baby on your bed, rather than a sofa or cushioned chair,” Feldman-Winter suggested in the report published online in the journal Pediatrics.last_img read more

Where there is a wheel there is a way

first_imgA theatrical adaptation of the globally appreciated film and play Mamma Mia is being staged in the national Capital till Sunday at Shri Ram Centre for Performing Arts. Featuring live singing and dance performance along with outstanding acting and a beautiful audio-visual running in the background, the first live show of the musical act Mamma Mia Again! is being highly appreciated by the audience as well as the performing arts community at large. The two-and-a-half hour long musical theatrical has been organised jointly by Azad Foundation and Sakha Consulting Wings to help raise funds for their transformational ‘Women on Wheels’ programme that empowers disadvantaged women to become professional drivers.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSuccessfully reflecting the tagline ‘Where there is a wheel, there is a way’, the narrative of the theatrical acted as a gateway of community mobilization to achieve the larger goal of women empowerment. This musical adaptation of the globally appreciated 2008 film and play Mamma Mia is about a bride-to-be searching for her father, creating an amusing mess along the way. The proceeds from this delightful comedy will go towards the revolutionary ‘Women on Wheels’ program.  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive“Mamma Mia Again! not only fulfils our creative quests but also contributes to an extraordinary cause. It is my privilege to be associated with such a noble cause. This production is an adaptation of the internationally acclaimed film and Broadway musical. It is a story of four women who live life on their own terms and make their own choices which are sometimes right, sometimes wrong, but more importantly, they are the ones controlling their lives. While the foot-tapping music is certainly the soul of the production, the story, I believe is equally interesting,” says director Ritu R Chandra, who has crafted the new-age act with immense passion. Over a career in theatre spanning for 18 years, Chandra has scripted, produced and directed various plays, including The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and We will Rock You. Her latest production was the critically acclaimed Khushi Ek Ehsas for the Blind Relief Association featuring 50 visually impaired children on stage. Azad Foundation’s and Sakha’s ‘Women on Wheels’ is a social initiative that gives resource-poor women an opportunity to earn a livelihood through dignity. Azad Foundation provides transformational training providing driving as well as self-empowerment modules such as self-defence, first aid, legal and women’s rights, to name a few, to prepare and empower women. Once the women successfully complete the training, Sakha Consulting, Azad’s sister concern, provides employment to them in private chauffeur placements and Sakha Cabs for Women.  “Our ‘Women on Wheels’ program has recently brought remarkable change to the lives of many women and given vulnerable women living in slums a chance to escape poverty. Not only has it provided them much needed support, but has empowered them financially and socially in every aspect of life. The cohort of women chauffeurs provides safe and alternative transport options to women in Delhi and other cities, contributing in their own little way to make India safer, equitable and more amenable to women. We are thankful to Ritu Chandra and her team of artists for coming out in support of our cause and helping us in raising funds to expand our endeavour,” says Meenu Vadera of  Azad Foundation.‘Women on Wheels’ has so far trained as many as 700 women as employable drivers. These women are now investing their earnings in education, health and towards transforming their life conditions.last_img read more
