  • Flexible, wearable supercapacitors based on porous nanocarbon nanocomposites

    10/19/2019 12:42:29 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 1 replies ^ | 10/18/2019
    Dresses emitting sparkling light from hundreds of small LEDs may create eye-catching effects in ballrooms or on fashion shows. But wearable electronics can also mean sensors integrated in functional textiles to monitor, for example, water evaporation or temperature changes. Energy storage systems powering such wearable devices must combine deformability with high capacity and durability. However, deformable electrodes often fail in long-term operation, and their capacity lags behind that of other state-of-the-art energy storage devices. Electrode materials usually benefit from a fine balance of porosity, conductivity, and electrochemical activity. Material scientists...have looked deeper into the material demands for flexible electrodes and...

    I arrived here in China yesterday and after checking into my hotel I decided to take a look at the news and of course free republic is the first place I go. It is now blocked here, I come here often (747 CPT) And have never had an issue before. Looks like you guys of all been on your worst behavior and highlighted yourself somehow! I’d consider it a badge of honor, thank God for VPNs!

    The Epoch Times ^ | Oct 17,2019 | ZACHARY STIEBER
    The Senate didn’t get enough votes to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a resolution that, if it had gone through, would have ended the emergency declaration that included an order to use national security funds to build the wall at the southern border. The vote on Thursday was 53-36. Ten Republicans sided with Democrats in voting to try to override the veto: Sens. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Pat Toomey (R-Penn.), and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.). Trump vetoed an identical resolution...

    The President said in his speech Thursday, October 17, during the Philippine Business Conference and Expo at the Manila Hotel, he assigned Espenido to Bacolod because the city was "badly hit now." He described Espenido as "yung tinatakutan nila na pulis." (The cop they fear the most.) "Sabi ko, ‘Go there and you are free to kill everybody." T*** i**** 'yan. Go, start killing them. Ako nang – dalawa na tayong pa-preso,’" Duterte referring to his instructions to Espenido. (I said: Go there and you are free to kill everybody. *expletives*. Go, start killing them.

  • Novel nanoprobes show promise for optical monitoring of neural activity

    10/19/2019 12:25:58 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 5 replies ^ | 10/18/2019 | UC Santa Cruz
    Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have developed ultrasensitive nanoscale optical probes to monitor the bioelectric activity of neurons and other excitable cells. This novel readout technology could enable scientists to study how neural circuits function at an unprecedented scale by monitoring large numbers of individual neurons simultaneously. It could also lead to high-bandwidth brain-machine interfaces with dramatically enhanced precision and functionality. Monitoring the electrical activity of neurons is conventionally done using microelectrode arrays, but these are difficult to implement at a large scale and offer limited spatial resolution. In addition, the electronic wiring required for readout is a major limitation...

  • Has the White House tainted Barr's investigation of the Russia probe?

    CNN Fake News ^ | 18 October 2019 | Evan Perez and Katelyn Polantz
    The Justice Department's investigation into the origins of the Russia election interference probe keeps getting unwanted assists from the White House, raising questions of how the department will be able to defend the legitimacy of any of its eventual findings. From the start, the probe has been driven by Attorney General William Barr's suspicions -- critics call them conspiracy theories -- that some of the officials overseeing the counterintelligence investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign may have acted improperly. His embrace of these theories aligns with President Donald Trump's chief grievance that he was the victim of a "deep state"...

    KCCI Des Moines ^ | Updated: 9:19 PM CDT Oct 18, 2019 | Beau Bowman
    The state has agreed that some statements from the man accused of killing Mollie Tibbetts should not be used in court. In August, Cristhian Bahena Rivera's lawyers filed a motion to suppress information gathered during the police's investigation. They claimed that Rivera's Miranda rights were violated and, therefore, some of the information gathered during his interview should be removed from court proceedings. On Friday, the state responded, saying, in part, "This resistance includes some new facts that were not relevant to the arguments the Defendant made previously and reflects additional information unearthed in ongoing discovery," according to court documents. The...

    A heads up for patriots. I received a notification from the offices of NC pols Richard Burr, Thom Tillis, and Virginia Foxx that they had received and would soon reply to correspondence from me. I had NOT (this time) created the correspondence. Turns out a group called “Seniors Speak Out” (SSO) and “Voter Voice” (VV) had forged my name and email address to the correspondence delivered to Burr, Tillis, and Foxx. I found the administrator of SSO “Nona Bear” and SSO’s blog, twitter, and Linkedin accounts. None of the direct message functions allowed contact. Turned out that VV had a...

    Karl Rove said that Hillary Clinton needs to either “put up or shut up” over her accusations that 2020 Democratic contender Tulsi Gabbard and former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein could be Russian assets. Rove, President George W. Bush’s deputy chief of staff, made the remarks on Fox News’ The Story with Martha MacCallum Friday night. The comments come after Clinton, 71, said Gabbard, 38, is “ a favorite of the Russians” and implied that the congresswoman is a “Russian asset.” “Over the top, out of her mind,” Rove said of Clinton. "Put up or shut up."

    Republican Rep. Francis Rooney (Fla.), who this week refused to rule out impeaching President Trump, announced Saturday that he won't seek reelection. Rooney revealed his decision in a Fox News interview. A spokesman for Rooney confirmed to The Hill that the lawmaker won't run for a third-term. "I don't think I really do and I don't think I really want one," Rooney said in the interview when asked if he needed a third term. Rooney said he came to Congress to secure money for Everglades projects and for an offshore drilling ban to protect Florida. "I thought it might take...

    FULL TITLE: Healthy Twins Survive Chemical Abortion After Planned Parenthood Failed to Disclose Second Child In Utero Recently, a Tennessee woman gave birth to healthy twin babies who miraculously survived a chemical abortion attempt at a Knoxville, TN, Planned Parenthood. The incredible story of these miracle babies, as told by one pro-life physician, underscores just how sorely the abortion giant fails to meet the needs of women, both from a medical standpoint and a human one. Displaying obvious ineptitude from the start, the nation’s largest abortion business only informed the woman she was pregnant with twins after the chemical abortion...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff's closed door impeachment hearings are not moving along as he has envisioned they would. According to inside sources, witnesses that Schiff is convinced have damaging evidence against President Trump are resisting Schiff's efforts to put words into their mouths. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent reputedly told the Committee that he had qualms about Joe Biden's son Hunter's role on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings back in 2015, but was rebuffed by the staff of the Vice-President citing "President Obama's full approval for the actions taken to oust...

    Liu’s* husband told her to have an abortion. The Chinese woman discovered she was pregnant while on a visa as a visiting professor at a California university. Her spouse, still in China, feared the baby would have a disability due to the medication he took while ill. “He told her to have an abortion before coming home,” said Kerry Jepson, executive director of Assure Pregnancy Clinic in Fontana, California. “She felt she had no choice.” The woman whose home where Liu stayed encouraged her to visit Assure. A volunteer advocate at the clinic had been a missionary to China several...

The Church at Planned Parenthood-Everett (“TCAPP”) is an organization that hosts a “gathering of Christians for the worship of God and the corporate prayer for repentance for this nation, repentance for the apathetic church and repentance of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.” In April 2019, TCAPP began holding monthly worship services in Everett, near the Planned Parenthood Everett Health Center. In June, TCAPP was approached by City of Everett law enforcement officers who stated that the City of Everett had...
