impact on Atlantic hurricane activity. In the bulletin of the American meteorological Society in 2015 there was a very interesting article on understanding trends and extreme storms. There were no significant trend in the number of US hurricanes hitting the United States since 1900. The increase appears to be a natural variation. The variation occurs within years and decades but not over the whole length of time of the datasets. This experience could be replicated.

Enlarge (credit: APOD ) The Universe is a strange place. Apart from the normal matter that we see around us, there appears to be a far larger amount of matter that we cannot see—the infamous dark matter. Even more puzzling, the Universe seems to be bathed in a similarly invisible dark energy, which drives the Universe to expand faster and faster. This all points to something missing from our understanding. At the moment, we tend to think that dark matter is something missing from quantum mechanics, a particle that provides dark matter. Dark energy seems to be more gravity related. But it's possible the two are linked. According to Professor Erik Verlinde from the University of Amsterdam, it may be that dark matter does not exist. His work indicates that in a Universe with dark energy (a positive cosmological constant), gravity does not exactly follow general relativity.

That is, we were getting more and more access, and access was bringing more and more inequality, and the inequality mattered. For Asian Americans, a false perception persists that they're universally high achieving. Teranishi says that they're treated as a homogenous group even though there are many ethnic subgroups, and that there's not enough data tracking subgroups. A 2011 report by CARE found that up to two-third of Southeast Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States don't have any form of post-secondary education and that for the ones who do enter college, half drop out. They're generally overlooked and underserved when it comes to college opportunity programs, college access, or even student services or programs on campus, Teranishi says. And really, it's rooted in this model-minority myth. There's not a lot of understanding about their actual experiences or outcomes.

Earlier, the German Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety also issued a reminder that depending on the kit, genetic-engineering laws still applied, and doing this work outside of a licensed facility with an expert supervisor could lead to a fine of up to 50,000 euros ($56,000). In the U.S., then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in early 2016 added genome editing to a list related to weapons of mass destruction and proliferation. But bioengineering experts say overall, the U.S. government agencies have long been monitoring the gene-editing and the DIY bio movement — very proactive in understanding the field, as Johns Hopkins University biosecurity fellow Justin Pahara puts it. There is a lot of effort going into understanding the scope of DIY biology, who can do it, what can be done, what are some of the concerns, how do we mitigate risk, says Pahara, who is also a co-founder of bioengineering-kit company Amino Labs.

“It is considerations like these and many more (such as the tribal sacredness of the tradition making it unlikely that it could have come from Western intruders who would not have been highly regarded or in the confidence of the meticulous and traditional priests) which lead Dr. Dieterlen to reject the suggestion of Western origins as ‘absurd.'” In 19791980, anthropologist Walter van Beek studied the Dogon. He found the Dogon cosmology much different than reported by Griaule and Dieterlen. Van Beek said the Dogon understanding of the Sirius system was not clear or unified. He received various explanations from various Dogon sources, and some of them said what they knew of the system came to them from Griaule. A Dogon village. (Public Domain) Griaule has been criticized for using leading questions and planting the astronomical knowledge in the Dogon.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry said Monday he still thinks about a turnover in Game 7 of the NBA Finals last season, when he attempted a behind-the-back pass to Klay Thompson that instead sailed out of bounds in the fourth quarter, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com. That pass came around the five-minute mark with the Warriors up one. The team didn't score the rest of the game, and blew a 3-1 series lead. While Curry still laments the mistake, he also told Haynes he isn't going to change his style of play: "Yeah, I still think about that [turnover]. [But] in thinking about that game, it's funny because I know the concept of making the right play, making a simple play, understanding that there are deciding moments in games and the difference between winning a championship or not could be one of those plays. [With that said,] I came out in preseason this year and threw a behind-the-back pass because I have confidence that I can do it and it won't change that.

Their understanding of the user and the product itself goes beyond since they have the capabilities to select the problem and address it with either prototyping and even front-end coding. Their role involves also testing in generating solutions to problems. This is the role that we keep hearing about since companies tend to hire designers that understand the user experience, research and visual elements. Voilà! This is what these roles meant to our industry, hope these were helpful during the course of your research or growth perspective. One thing to remember though is there is no ultimate goal in our field, everything depends on what do you wanna do with your career. If your goal is to be that catch-all designer, then you have to step it out so you can understand every single compartment of a product or keep crafting your skills in your desired role.

The Denver Post on Monday said a sportswriter was no longer an employee of the paper after he tweeted his discomfort with a Japanese driver winning the Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend. On Sunday Takuma Sato became the first driver from Japan to win the iconic race, prompting Terry Frei to dispatch this controversial missive: The now-deleted tweet earned him plenty of backlash and perhaps cost him his job. We apologize for the disrespectful and unacceptable tweet that was sent by one of our reporters, the Post wrote in a statement Monday. Terry Frei is no longer an employee of The Denver Post. Its our policy not to comment further on personnel issues. Heres a sampling of the comments on Twitter in response to Freis tweet Sunday: @TFrei SPECIFICALLY personal, i am very uncomfortable w your racism, xenophobia & lack of understanding of what the Indianapolis 500 is all about megan brown (@thatgirlondeck) May 28, 2017 This post has been updated to include news that Terry Frei no longer works at The Denver Post.

In order to find ways to improve our understanding, NASA is going to get even more up close and personal with the Sun's corona than Helios 2, and blow its record out of the sky. Due to be launched around August next year, the robust little probe will swing past Venus seven times over the course of seven years to fine-tune an orbit that will take it within 6 million kilometres (a little under 4 million miles) of the Sun's surface – or photosphere – in 24 elliptical loops. That might not sound very close, but at just nine times the Sun's radius, it's still a rather daring move that will allow sensors to sweep close enough to trace the magnetic fields and catch a few solar particles without getting fried. As it is, the probe will be forced to endure temperatures up to 1,400° Celsius (about 2,550° Fahrenheit) while keeping its payload at a comfy room temperature.
