In the heart of Abuja, the federal capital territory of Nigeria, there is a bank of huge satellite dishes. They are part of the country’s Earth station—the place that connects with five Nigerian satellites in orbit, the stream of data they generate, and the scientists interpreting them—which serves as the most visible aspect of Nigeria’s space infrastructure. Very few countries locate these in their capital’s central business district, for reasons ranging from geography to demography to security. But Nigeria does. The dish cluster strikes a curious pose in the city center, as if challenging conventional wisdom.

Product designer Kosho Tsuboi once lived in a zen monastery temple. In the process, the young graduate became more profoundly aware of the relevance of time and the tactile in shaping and defining the human experience. An example of this realization manifests today in his team's conceptual Magic Calendar , a hi-resolution electronic paper calendar display envisioning connecting the divide between our virtual calendars and the physical world around us. Conceived as part of Google's Android Experiments initiative, Magic Calendar is a response to the question, What if there was a calendar that combines the merits of both paper and smartphone?. The answer is an Android app partnered with an interconnected paper-thin e-ink color display. Everything on the mobile device's calendar is mirrored physically on an always-on display designed for the wall or on the desk, making sharing events and schedules between people easier and more natural.

This Grid is used often when you meditate to connect with others who are ‘Lightworkers’ or whatever name you want to give to those beings who are here in service to assist in the change in cycle and are either placed around the Grid at different locations synchronistically to anchor in higher energies at particular cosmic events, or who through meditation link and in their higher state of consciousness see and know all beings as whole, healed and divine. Thereby creating a higher level of consciousness to assist all humanity to make the shift. The shift is happening regardless of whether anyone wants it or not, just as day follows night, it is a cyclic event, a rather a grand one. This Grid connects everyone in their Higher/Inner Self level of being and often they are not conscious of what is happening as they work together often while asleep or through trusting in their hearts to go where guided on the Crystalline Grid to hold the energy.

Do you find yourself covering your mouth in public places while talking on your cell phone? Well, you dont need to worry about that anymore. US based company, Hushme has come up with a new bizarre gadget that blocks the sound of the wearer’s voice so that people nearby can’t hear what is being said. This comes very handy when you get a private call in a meeting or when you’re surrounded by potential eavesdroppers. It simply connects to your phone via Bluetooth and comes with a pair of earbuds. All you have to do is put the muzzle-like mask on and it will do the rest. So if you are planning to get one, it’s going to cost you around 200 US dollars.

This gives the material meaning and a sense of purpose that goes beyond memorization. When I hear a peer's story, it connects to the story I am telling myself about who I want to be in the future. The research, published in the International Journal of Educational Research , took place in an online college course. Online course enrollment has grown dramatically during the past decade, and more than a third of all US higher-education students—more than 7 million—have now enrolled in at least one online course. Working alone together' can be good motivation For the experiment, students in an introductory-level educational psychology course, a requirement of all teacher education students, were randomly assigned to receive either the peer rationale, the instructor rationale, or no rationale for why the course was important and beneficial to their potential careers as teachers.

Yes, every brand is making its smartwatches exercise-centric, but if a manufacturer could find a way to accurately measure all kinds of fitness be it logging the 200m you run for the train as well as the stairs you climb and the lifting of a heavy backpack multiple times a day it would be tremendously appealing. Theres reason to believe Sony could deliver such tracking capability its Lifelog exercise and life-tracking service was an early pioneer of automatic exercise recognition on the phone. If Sony were to make a new fitness-centric wearable, it would have to contain enhancements to that platform and become an excellent exercise tracker that displays rich notifications or even connects to other sensors on the body, a notion Sony has been pushing conceptually for years with ideas like the Xperia Eye or new Xperia Ear open-style concept thats the sort of thing that would make it a must-have device.

Tengku Adnan called on those boarding or alighting the train at the Bandaraya station to make full use of the new bridge to avoid being victims of road accidents or any other unwanted incidents. "So please utilise this bridge. I don't want to see the public loitering along the sides of the roads. We are doing our level best to ensure safety of the city folks," he said. The RM7.27 million, 200m pedestrian bridge along Jalan Raja Laut connects the Bandaraya LRT station to Wisma Bumiraya and surrounding areas. The project, which commenced on July 7, 2015 and completed Dec 30, 2016, is the second phase of the Jambatan Baru Sg. Gombak, which connect Jalan Raja Laut to Jalan Kuching. Meanwhile, City Hall will launch the next pedestrian bridge in two weeks time costing RM5 million at Monorail Chow Kit which crosses above the Pahang roundabout to Hospital Kuala Lumpur said Executive Director (Planning) Datuk Mohd Najib Mohd.

Laws prevented lower class peasants from partaking in such revelry. A collection of leather shoes has survived five centuries buried in the London mud. Some are plain with rounded toes, patched up and well worn. Others appear to have barely been used, their tapering ends suggestive of the modern stiletto heel. “So very fashionable shoes that Londoners were wearing. It connects us in a way with people in the past,” Keily noted. Despite the painstaking archaeological work each time something new is unearthed, construction of Crossrail remains on schedule. The first trains are due to take passengers through the tunnels in late 2018.

Kim Jong Un will never give up the nuclear program. As long as Kim Jong Un’s regime is in place, there is no solution for [the North Korean nuclear issue] and any kind of compromises would only serve Kim,” Thae added. Pyongyang is inching closer to a regime collapse as it attempts to conduct increasingly more powerful nuclear tests, the former envoy said. The Punggye-ri nuclear test facility in northeast North Korea sits on a swath of land that connects the capital, Pyongyang, to North Hamgyong Province on the border with China. Any failed nuclear test in the area could potentially cause two disasters, Thae said. One would be large-scale environmental contamination, affecting all of North Korea. The other would be what China has long feared — a flood of refugees crossing the Yalu River. Kim’s downfall also could come from the growth of a market economy within North Korea, said Thae, who is now an analyst at the Institute for National Security Strategy, a research organization affiliated with South Korea’s National Intelligence Service.

Its intricate VarioGear stainless steel hinge, inspired by the gearbox of a sports car, lets it fold into a variety of stances without ever feeling flimsy. The 13.3-inch QHD multi-touch display connects with a satisfying click and detaches completely to work as a true tablet, and the Intel Core i7, 512GB SSD, 16GB of RAM, and various ports help it perform like a product worthy of its maker's name. Built from brushed and anodized aluminum and sandblasted for a durable silver finish. (at Uncrate ) Samsung The Frame TV Most modern TVs dominate the space around them, becoming a focal point of the room no matter how svelte their design. The Samsung The Frame TV aims to blend in. Thanks to some smart thinking from designer Yves Behar, it doesn't fade to black when it's turned off and instead displays one of over 100 art pieces. Interchangeable bezels or the optional Studio Stand help it look even more like a framed piece of artwork instead of a screen, and thanks to Invisible Connection technology and a no-gap wall mount, you won't have a bundle of wires hanging down to give it away.

Coils are reliable and not too expensive. The V12 has a set of six coils per bank, each set costing £1000. They tend to fail when the plugs are changed. TRANSMISSION It’s tough. On all models, the transmission can switch to limp-home mode and third gear wont engage. It’s a gearbox-out job. SUSPENSION Check for warning lights. (White: something’s up. Red: run away.) A faulty system will default to the hard, sporty setting. Struts can leak and each costs around £700. Pump control valves (there are two, each costing £1000) can fail, too. Check the strut top links for looseness. ELECTRICS Check for water in the passenger footwell caused by a blocked scuttle drain. Much of the wiring connects here and damp will wreak havoc. BODY Aluminium-steel body can rust at the rear wheel arches, the bottom of the doors and the rear screen. INTERIOR It’s robust, but check warning lights relating to safety features.
