Scientists are developing a new line of fast-growing sprouting broccoli that goes from seed to harvest in 8-10 weeks. It has the potential to deliver two full crops a season in-field or it can be grown all year round in protected conditions, which could help with continuity of supply, as growers would no longer be reliant on seasonal weather conditions.

This, combined with the larger tyres, should translate to a five per cent increase in lap-time performance and a time-saving of as much as six seconds at certain circuits, says Renault Sport F1’s chief technical officer and former McLaren man, Bob Bell. After last year’s difficulties, during which the team stopped developing the R.S. 16 early and scored a mere eight points, this is the first car that Renault’s F1 headquarters in Enstone, Oxfordshire, and engine-development centre in Viry-Châtillon, in the suburbs of Paris, have developed collaboratively from the ground up. It means the engine has been packaged with an attention to detail never before possible for the team and the car should hit the ground running. ‘Fifteen years ago we were building an engine in France, a chassis in Enstone, and we would meet [for winter testing] in Barcelona and it would take us a week to bolt everything together, then we would run for two laps!’ says Taffin.

Online design community Coroflot were interested in developing a space that reflected their creative community while also keeping mobility in mind and the result is their Mobile Work Unit (MWU) . It's a clever office on wheels that was designed in collaboration with Portland-based LOS OSOS who took a new approach when it came time for the construction. The MWU is parked inside an old ambulance garage in downtown Portland that's now home to Hand-Eye Supply. Built on a trailer, they used post-and-beam construction which allowed for the use of polycarbonate panels as walls. That allows light to fill the space while providing some semblance of separation. They paired the translucent walls with locally sourced, kiln-dried Douglas fir for the structure. In addition, a bold, vibrant color was incorporated as an accent. mg class="alignnone size-large wp-image-294267" src="http://2.

We’ve focused on a handful of powerful stories that bring to life the work NAAEE does – such as the incredible impact of replacing 850,000 lunch trays with compostable trays – as well as the resources they offer anyone developing an environmental literacy and civic engagement program. The 360-degree image viewer captures the essence of what these individuals and organizations are working to conserve. We were looking for an elegant but subtle way to convey the overall sentiment of the stories. We also built in the ability for NAAEE to embed multimedia content for future stories they publish on their site. Our mutual goal was to build a platform that was long-lasting and adaptable, so NAAEE can continue to showcase various types of media to bring more stories to life. NAAEE’s work with more than 20,000 educators reaches millions of people across different organizations and communities every day.

This method is favourable because it provides users with a controlled release of medication, which in this case is a large amount of cannabinoid (CBD) extract. As the CBD enters into the bloodstream, it then penetrates the central nervous system, allowing their pain to subside. As more states nationwide legislate for the legalization of Cannabis and Cannabis derived medications, we here at Cannabis Science are focused on developing pharmaceutical formulations and applications to supply the huge growing demand expected over the coming few years, explains the company's CEO, Raymond C. Dabney . Even though the medical uses of cannabis have been proven time and time again through numerous accredited science institutions and universities, the stigma surrounding cannabis remains significant and contentious. Since it's an illegal substance, numerous people shy away from it, including those who are suffering from illnesses cannabis could cure or seriously help treat.

On Valentine's Day, Muzzy's students took part in "Friendship Day" activities, which included making bracelets and cards to exchange. Marquez-Greene attended and helped introduce a new student, Jaden Garcia, to Muzzy's class. She showed students how to get to know him better by asking about his favorite food (pizza), his pets (he has a cat) and his favorite sports (soccer). Araceli Buchko, 10, made a bracelet for a friend she had made by using similar conversation starters. "I wanted to try it out and see if they would like me," she said. "I tried one person and it was good. We found out we had a lot in common, and she became my best friend." The charity has set up four Love Wins family resource centers in New Britain, including one at Chamberlain, geared toward developing the social skills of preschoolers. In addition, it hosts a day of training for all New Britain teachers on issues such as how to deal with a child who may acting out in class because they are dealing with a divorce or a parent in prison.

President Trump sought to put more than a week of turmoil in his foreign policy team to rest as he selected Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as his new National Security Advisor, replacing the ousted Mike Flynn. McMaster, a widely respected strategist had been in charge of developing the Army's plans to address future threats. (He was named to the TIME 100 in 2014. ) Trump had interviewed McMaster and other finalists at Mar-a-Lago this weekend, announcing the selection Monday to the press, just days after his first selection for the post declined the job. It capped a weekend in which Trump participated in a couple rounds of golf, attending a pair of fundraisers at his private club, and holding meetings with staff on the future of Obamacare and tax reform. The White House has promised developments on both of those legislative fronts in the coming weeks, but it is as yet unclear the extent of its coordination with Capitol Hill Republicans.

Transparency is far more efficient than endless systems of information exchange between governments. Does she believe a conflict here where different governments are supporting tax systems and tax authorities in many developing countries. Of course, if they can have the transparency of information of companies, even if they are getting support, they can't get to the bottom where their taxes are actually going? If you haven't got the tools to make the difference you won't see the change being made across this House without further access from transparent information.

Why is it so important the registers are publicly available? Because it's the only way that people in developing countries can access the information in a proper way, and secondly, it allows law agencies and civil societies to interrogate data like they have with the Panama papers.

Excuse us for getting a little too pumped up about a car commercial two weeks after the Super Bowl. We’re making an exception here because this ad by Toyota for its new C-HR crossover is that good. The commercial takes a page from Japan’s rich culture of developing the most iconic video games in history. Toyota, presumably with the help of Capcom, released this commercial of the C-HR for the Japanese market. That’s the not the news here, though. Rather, its the treatment of the ad, which puts the C-HR inside the world of Street Fighter II, arguably the biggest and most popular fighting game in history. The ad starts off with the CH-R lining up to battle Ryu, the Hadouken-throwing protagonist of the video game franchise. But instead of fighting each other, Ryu instead hops inside the CH-R before going on a tour of sorts to the home stages of the game’s other characters.

Lord Martin Rees is an astrophysicist and the former master of Trinity College, Cambridge. He sat down with The WorldPost for a wide-ranging interview, which has been edited for clarity and brevity. Alexanderrlach : Out of all great transformations we are going through, from climate change to artificial intelligence to gene editing, what are the most consequential we are about to witness? Martin Rees : It depends on what time scale we are thinking about. In the next 10 or 20 years, I would say its the rapid development in biotechnology. We are already seeing that its becoming easier to modify the genome, and we heard about experiments on the influenza virus to make it more virulent and transmissible. These techniques are developing very fast and have huge potential benefits but unfortunately also downsides. They are easily accessible and handled.
