By adjusting the size of the block copolymer, different patterns can be created. One half is friendly with oil, the other half is friendly with water, explained Do Han Kim, leader author on a paper describing the discovery. But because they are completely bonded, theyre kind of stuck with each other. Finally, a thin, protective polymer film is formed on a surface by heating it up and allowing it to condense, just like water vapour from a hot shower condenses on a cold mirror. This top coating forces the block copolymers to assemble in a certain way, guided by the underlying pattern, and it can be etched on to build another layer over the top. Cost-effective While there are other ways to achieve this kind of fine patterning, the team says that none of them are as cost-effective for large-scale manufacturing as this method.

Such stratospheric numbers defy easy comprehension, but one does not need training in statistics to bring them closer to home. Simple arithmetic suffices. The projected bill for just the 30-year nuclear modernization agenda comes to over $90 million a day, or almost $4 million an hour. The $1 trillion price tag for maintaining the nations status as the most powerful nation on Earth for a single year amounts to roughly $2.74 billion a day, over $114 million an hour. Creating a capacity for violence greater than the world has ever seen is costly and remunerative. So an era of a new peace? Think again. Were only three quarters of the way through Americas violent century and theres more to come. John W. Dower is professor emeritus of history at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Edge companies only see traffic that you give them. ISPs see everything you do. On top of that, generally speaking edge companies offer free services, while ISPs charge a hefty fee for what they offer. The FTC itself also lacks some authority. Not only is the FTC unable to create new laws, but it also cant regulate Title II communications companies like ISPs thanks to net neutrality laws that were put into place by the FCC in 2015. The future of internet privacy The rule rollback sets an unsettling precedent for the internet and internet privacy in general. As mentioned, the new proposition essentially means that the FCC can't create and implement new laws in the future, which is a major problem considering the FTC's current inability to launch its own rules against ISPs. "The precedents are already set. The US intelligence community and Department of Homeland security already command a combined yearly budget over $120 billion a year," said Lynda OConner, author of Democracy Betrayed: The Rise of the Surveillance Security State, in an interview with TechRadar.

A study that measures the human toll of air pollution from global manufacturing and trade demonstrates how buying goods made far away can lead to premature deaths both there and close to home. Each year, more than 750,000 people die prematurely from dirty air generated by making goods in one location that will be sold elsewhere. That's about one-fifth of the 3.45 million premature deaths from air pollution. The study says 12 percent of that total number of deaths, or about 411,000 people, are a result of air pollution that has blown across national borders. "It's not a local issue anymore," said study co-author Dabo Guan, an economist at the University of East Anglia in England. "It requires global cooperation." Multiple factors It has long been known that that the environmental burden of manufacturing often falls heaviest on countries where companies set up shop to take advantage of low labor costs and relatively loose environmental regulations.

The TMG filing alleged that Deppspent $30,000 per month on expensive wines that he had flown to him around the world for his personal consumption,” as Radar reported in January. “Depp also paid over $3 million to blast from a specially-made cannon the ashes of author Hunter Thompson over Aspen, they alleged. Meanwhile, Depp appears to be feeling the stress: He showed up at Lady Gaga’s Los Angeles birthday dinner party Tuesday night looking more like one of Pirates' walking cadavers than the seriesswashbuckling hero. As RADAR REPORTED, insiders say the weight loss is part of the star’s self-improvement plan in the wake of his divorce from Amber Heard, which the pair finalized in August, 2016. Court documents show that after dropping abuse charges against Depp, Heard walked away with $6.8 million — which she intended to donate to charity.
