NASA has already prepared a protocol for a possible discovery by a SETI telescope. Just imagine if SETI telescopes actually pick up a signal from a distant star system. What would happen then? Could we understand it? Should we respond to it? If so, what should we say, and how? Should we just go ahead and call them without waiting for them to call first? A book by NASA , considered as a protocol for alien contact, titled: Archeology, Anthropology, and Interstellar Communication tackles the issue like never before. The recent discovery of a solar system that has seven Earth-sized exoplanets located at a distance of 40 light-years from has prompted NASA to come up with a protocol that is to be followed in order to announce to the world the existence of Alien life. The seven Earth-like planets —with high chances of life having developed there already—are located in the Aquarius constellation and are part of a faint, cold red dwarf the size of Jupiter, known as TRAPPIST-1.

Industry executives and police experts say that the next stage of the technologyautomatically scanning public places for faces and objects in real timecould help more quickly find armed and dangerous or missing persons, identify critical moments amid torrents of body and dash cam footage, or even perhaps identify biased policing. In many communities, automatic license plate readersbrick-sized cameras mounted on the back of patrol carsalready do something similar with cars, archiving and cross-referencing every license plate they pass in real time to check for outstanding warrants or traffic violations. These are also the most worrisome applications, privacy advocates say, given the general secrecy that surrounds them, the few restrictions on their use, and the ability to track individuals. Pairing face-matching algorithms with body cameras, said Bedoya, will redefine the nature of public spaces.

Jonathan Bray 15 min 28 sec ago Samsung Price when reviewed 779 The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus doesnt really deserve its own review. It’s much the same as the Samsung Galaxy S8, which you can read a full hands-on review of here; it has the same features, same internals, camera, storage options, and screen aspect ratio and resolution.

Connected home security cameras have been on the market for quite some time, but D-Link recently began selling the first HomeKit-compatible security camera. Priced competitively at 199, the D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD camera has several perks over competing cameras that don't offer HomeKit integration -- it's guaranteed to have Apple's required level of encryption, it works with Siri , and it can be viewed right in the Apple-created Home app. Design The Omna is made from brushed aluminum and is palm-sized, so it can be placed just about anywhere, but it needs to go on a flat surface and can't be wall mounted like some other options. Size wise, it's a bit taller than a standard soda can, but skinnier. The camera portion is mounted on the front, a microSD card slot is at the bottom along with a reset button, and there's a small grated area at the bottom, presumably for heat dissipation, since the Omna does get somewhat warm.

agree that mandate. That mandate has to be turned into a formal directive, which means the negotiations may start in late May, I suspect probably early June. The time is going to be very short, which is why people are trying to pass a lead into bite sized chunks. One of the problems is going to be as soon as they start negotiating, they will have a dispute.

Samsungs new phablet flagship has arrived and it's a monster, with a 6.2-inch screen. As such, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus dwarfs the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus , at least in terms of screen size - though surprisingly the overall body isn't much bigger. But a lot of other things also differ between these two plus-sized handsets, from their operating systems to their chipsets and beyond. Here's how they stack up. Everything you need to know about the Galaxy S8 Plus Design The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has a metal frame with a glass front and back, a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge , albeit with smaller bezels above and below the edge-to-edge screen. The iPhone 7 Plus on the other hand leans more heavily on metal, with a metal unibody and larger bezels above and below the screen, necessary in part to house the home button. Those larger bezels mean the iPhone 7 Plus is a similar size to the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus overall: the 7 Plus comes in at 158.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is 148.9 x 68 x 8mm, while the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is 159 x 74 x 8mm, meaning they're the same thickness, but the S8 Plus is significantly longer and wider. These dimensions make the S8 Plus a phablet-sized phone, and even the standard S8 slightly on the large side, but neither is as big as you might expect given their screen sizes. By almost eliminating the bezel Samsung has managed to make the standard Samsung Galaxy S8 smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 , while the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is a similar size overall to the iPhone 7 Plus . Of course the S8 Plus is heavier than the S8 as well as being larger, but it shouldn't weigh you down too much. OS and power There's no difference here, or not between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus at any rate, but there are different versions of the phone for different regions.

And, you should also know that excessive white color in the iris may indicate joint degeneration while smaller-sized irises are related to more general joint issues. And, one more thing – a slightly-colored ring encircling the iris means that you are consuming too much sugar or salt. Treatment: how to protect yourself – well, the experts say that you should consume more anti-inflammatory foods, like walnuts, oily fish, linseeds/flaxseeds, ginger, turmeric and organic bone broth! And, this is also very important for you to know – you should reduce the intake of processed foods, sugar, caffeine and refined salt since, because they’re the main cause for inflammation.

Microscopic marine plankton don't just drift helplessly in the ocean. They perceive cues that indicate turbulence and rapidly respond. New research shows how. By day, these tiny organisms, one-tenth the diameter of a human hair, actively migrate towards the sunlit ocean surface to carry out photosynthesis. At night, they make their way to depths of tens of meters, where the supply of nutrients is greater. Plankton cells cells often encounter turbulent layers that disrupt this essential migratory pattern. It is still a mystery how these minute organisms can navigate through the dangers of turbulent waters. Plankton cells are whirled around by turbulenceparticularly by the smallest, millimeter-sized flow vortices—as if they were in a miniature washing machine, which can induce permanent damage to their propulsion appendages and cell envelope. In the worst case, they can perish in turbulence.

That big, headline-grabbing feature lies in that monstrous 5.8in, 1,440 x 2,960 display. It’s not the first display of this size – the Note 7 packed a 5.7in display after all – but there’s something special about this one. Try and spot those bezels: they’re virtually non-existent. Image 9 of 15 Yep, there’s barely a hint of bezel to be found. This is a 5.8in display crammed into what is essentially a 5.2in handset. How has Samsung done this? Well, a dash of engineering wizardry for starters. LG followed a similar big-screened route with its G6 , but Samsung’s Galaxy S8 raises the bar again, and there’s a big reason for that. Remember that Edge suffix of previous phones? That’s no longer a thing, as both the S8 and its plus-sized 6.2in brother have the wraparound 'Edge' display as standard. It's fair to say that Samsung has got the S8's design bang on.

Harriet Jarlett The scientist carefully places the sensors in the probe station and tests them by applying a high voltage using a needle. The team must wear protective equipment to keep the sensor safe from dust and scratches (Image: Ulysse Fichet/CERN) In a special, dust-free, clean laboratory, straddling the Swiss-French border, a group of physicists spend their time probing hand-sized hexagons of silicon. These hexagons are a fraction of a millimetre thick and are made up of over a hundred smaller hexagons, individual sensors each roughly one centimeter across. Together with layers of metal, the sensors will form a new subdetector to replace part of the end-cap calorimeters in CERN’s CMS experiment. A calorimeter measures the energy a particle loses as it passes through. It is usually designed to stop entirely or “absorb” most of the particles coming from a collision.
