memory alive and it was a similar show of strength at Martyn Hett's vigil last night. Plenty of jokes as they talk about a young man they described as Nikon, a diva. A young man who loved Coronation Street and would have been overwhelmed by the fact that some of the stars turned out to support him last night

Katy, She was not the only victim being remembered. A vigil for Martin Hett last night. Such a beautiful song. It's almost haunting. And so wonderful that her family can talk about their daughter and keep that memory alive and it was a similar show of strength at Martin.

[EvilTim] dug deep into a classic system to finally give the Game Gear a proper video output . The Game Gear was Sega's answer to Nintendo's Gameboy. Rushed to market, the Game Gear reused much of the hardware from the very popular Master System Console. The hardware wasn't quite identical though especially the cartridge slot. You couldn't play Game Gear games on a Master System, and the game gear lacked an AV output, which meant gamers were stuck playing on a small fluorescent backlit LCD screen. [EvilTim] wanted to play some of those retro titles on a regular TV using the original hardware. To accomplish this he had to start digging into the signals driving the Game Gear's LCD . The Master System lineage was immediately apparent, as Game Gear's LCD drive signals were similar in timing to those used to drive a TV. There was even a composite sync signal, which was unused on in the Game Gear.

A new technique for rapidly sorting HIV viruses has now been created, which could lead to more rapid development of a vaccine for HIV, say experts. The technique will enable scientists to identify specific features in the proteins on the virus’s surface that are recognized by the immune system and elicit a response similar to that seen in elite controllerspatients that are able to survive without antiviral treatment.

Here comes the EV avalanche... (click the image to enlarge) The take-up of electric cars in Europe and the US remains a trickle, but China’s push towards electrification is set to unleash a flood of new models over the next few years The incentives to buy an electric car in the UK may have been reduced, but more and more people are still making the switch away from conventionally powered vehicles. So far this year, sales of ‘alternatively fuelledvehicles have accounted for around 4% of all new car registrations. Britain is western Europe’s third-largest market for electrified cars, behind the Netherlands and Norway, where incentives are substantial, but the global trend tells a similar story. March this year was the third-best month for electrified car sales in Europe , behind only December 2015 and 2016, when financial inducements peaked. The new Renault Zoe and the Nissan Leaf were the standard-bearers, chased by the plug-in hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander .

Whosoever does it, whether more or less of it, will get tormented and chastised. [8] Because all that is done (as an assistance to them) is a big sin among the big sins. And this is because during the rulership of the tyrant all the righteousness gets wiped off and all of that is falsehood will be revived in the rulership of the oppressor and tyrant ruler. And the cruelty and brutality and corruption manifested and the heavenly books will get falsified and forfeited. And the Prophets and faithful ones will be killed. And the mosques will get dislodged and dismantled. And the Sunnah and ordinances and religious laws of Allah will be changed. This is the reason why coworking with them, helping and assisting them except where there exists a necessity like eating (haram and prohibited) blood and corpse for saving life is prohibited”. There is also a similar narration from ImamAli ar-Ridha (a): “About workers and officials of sultan (king, ruler): becoming a part of the officials of them and putting in endevour to fulfill their needs and requirements is the equivalent to infidelity.

Housing communities have various stipulations owner's must adhere to. On a recent trip, I asked a friend why every single house was the same color. The rules, they said, were to ensure no one painted their house a bright, or unsightly color. Cars are not allowed on the streets, nor in the driveway, but must be parked in the garages overnight. Lawns must maintain a similar aesthetic from house to house. The list surely goes on. I felt like I was seeing black and white. The lack of differentiation disturbed me. I am the type of person who, when I travel, the first thing that enchants me are colors. Brightly-colored murals painted on the side of buildings throughout a city make me happy art is being reimagined from the controversial graffiti to the now well-respected colors swallowing brick and cinderblock. A place can look run-down, or it can look gentrified, but they both hold stigmas.

But synestias formed from larger or hotter objects such as gas giant planets or stars could potentially last much longer, she says. The synestia structure also suggests new ways to think about lunar formation, Stewart says. Earth's moon is remarkably similar to Earth in composition, and most current theories about how the moon formed involve a giant impact that threw material into orbit. But such an impact could have instead formed a synestia from which the Earth and moon both condensed. Busted moon could put rings around Mars No one has yet observed a synestia directly, but they might be found in other solar systems once astronomers start looking for them alongside rocky planets and gas giants. NASA and the US Department of Energy supported the work. Source: University of California, Davis The post Was Earth once a big spinning doughnut'? appeared first on Futurity .

Prolific hacker [kodera2t] is working on his own ESP32 monster board dev board for the still-newish ESP32 WiFi module. His board has everything: Ethernet, OLED, LiPo, and even CAN-bus. But all that peripheral connectivity is worth nothing if you can't program the microcontroller to use it. The Arduino environment for the ESP32 is coming along quite nicely, but it's not yet fully featured enough to run all of [kodera2t]'s hardware. To take advantage of all that, he needs to use Espressif's SDK called the IoT Development Framework or IDF for short. In his latest project log, [kodera2t] goes through everything necessary to get the IDF up and compiling on OSX . (It's strangely similar to the Linux procedure.) Read through the official instructions here , if you want more, but we think [kodera2t] hits all the high points.

Kevin Durant Will Lead the Warriors in Points Per Game Against a physical Cavaliers team, Stephen Curry may run into difficulties while trying to find his rhythm. Matthew Dellavedova frustrated the Warriors guard early in the 2015 NBA Finals. Regardless of injury concerns, he struggled at the beginning of the 2016 championship round. For whatever reason, it takes a few games for Curry to find his stroke on the big stage with the Cavaliers. With extended time off, the Warriors may start a bit rusty, similar to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. Kevin Durant will take the court with the spotlight directly on him. He lost to James in the 2012 NBA Finals. Just like the Warriors, his Oklahoma City Thunder blew a 3-1 lead during the 2016 postseason. On the top of it all, he's been targeted with the ringless discussion. Now more than ever, it's time for Durant to show why he's considered the second-best player in the league.

Simon Mabon | (The Conversation) | The bombing of Manchester Arena on May 22 struck the very heart of British society. It was a horrific, direct assault on the innocent and the vulnerable. Many of the victims were children and young people, with their whole lives ahead of them, who had gone to listen to the music of Ariana Grande , an event that many had spent months looking forward to. Such gigs are a daily occurrence across the UK and the West and music plays an important role in everyday lives. But what of those young people whose lives do not include access to music, or education? What of those directly affected by war or political turmoil? In Syria, 11m people have been displaced from their homes and a whole generation have had their lives destroyed by the conflict. Similar stories can be found in neighbouring Iraq and Lebanon, in Egypt, Turkey, Yemen and Bahrain.

He continued to stand out in the athletic testing, particularly in the lane agility and shuttle run drills, both of which are typically dominated by guards. His shuttle run time of 2.83 was fourth overall, just six tenths of a second behind the top score held by Frank Jackson. " Bell is similar to Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets. Both players are undersized power forwards, but their energy is unmatched by nearly everyone they play against on a given night. Most notably, their height, weight and wingspans are eerily similar. Per DraftExpress , Bell is 6'8 ½ " and 225 pounds with a 6'11 ¾ " wingspan, while Faried measures at 6'7 ½ " and 224 pounds with a 7'0" wingspan. The difference is that Bell has a bigger vertical at 38 inches (Faried is at 35"). Per Jason Quick of CSN Northwest , Bell uses Faried as a basketball model: "While he says he patterns his game after Golden State's Draymond Green and Denver's Kenneth Faried, Bell says he is a defense-first player who will know how to embrace his role at the NBA level.
