Naveed Mirza, a Muslim student, said he had received "overwhelming" support since the attack described by police as "Islamist-related terrorism". "We have come to say how, as Muslims, we unequivocally condemn all the violent actions that took place yesterday," he told AFP. First IS claim of British attack The IS group said it was responsible, according to the Amaq propaganda agency, its first claim of an attack on British soil. The latest attack had echoes of the atrocities in Nice and Berlin when trucks ploughed into crowds of people, killing 86 people in the French Riviera city in July and 12 at a market in the German capital just days before Christmas. The assault on Westminster was the deadliest in Britain since four suicide bombers killed 52 people on the city's transport system in July 2005. A defiant May had told the reopened parliament that Britain's resolve "will never waver in the face of terrorism," as MPs stood heads bowed for a minute's silence in remembrance of the victims.

Kasthuri first explained the concept to five-year-old Daniel Dodson, saying, There's way more cells in your brain than all the stars we can see. We'd like to know where every cell in your brain is. He then explained the concept to 13-year-old Jabez Griggs, discussing the neuron wiring inside the brain and the fundamentals behind cells using electricity to communicate with each other. Next, he explained it to college student Elena Dowling, touching on telectron microscopes and the scanning techniques being created as a means for mapping the brain at such a small scale. Because neuroscience grad student Mala Ananth already knows what a connectome is, Kasthuri discussed the possibility of such a map being able to reproduce the consciousness of the human brain inside a computer program. With Brain Backups founder Russell Hanson, who has a bit more knowledge of connectomics, he discussed neural substrates, which are layers of human memory, rather than using stars and cells as analogies.

The rug adds an air of femininity to this cozy room. A comfortable chair for reading and a workspace makes this a great room for a teen or college student. A small multi-surface desk, bookshelves and contemporary desk chair complete this corner of the room. The seating area was completed with a 2 round porthole style mirrors, and fun big bulb lighting fixture against a wall in ocean blue. Open shelves are used for accessories and books. A comfy chair sits in front of the window, great setting for a good read. A block bookshelf stands behind the bed that has a low upholstered headboard. Straight lines and whimsical lighting features greet you in the kitchen. A black bar table extends from the dark mint island. Seating for four or five can be extended with barstools around the island. The white surface on the island seems to pop up out of the top.

The resulting 17 foot square dancefloor is a work of art, with custom programmed graphics responding to dancers moves, and even a few games along the lines of Dance Dance Revolution built in. After watching the video below, how many of you will secretly want one? We've brought you quite a few dance floor projects over the years. Memorable was this one using a glass floor suspended over a swimming pool , but there has also been more than one student project floor . Filed under: led hacks

"Young women are the future, I always say that," said Juli Szaller, another vice president at Mogul who handles operations and growth. "It's really important for them that their voices are being heard. And it should be important for us. We should listen." "Just because Trump is our president doesnt mean we are not entitled to say what we think," said Christie Hartono, a student at Stanford University, who is participating in the campaign. Heinrich hopes the large vagina will "drive the point home for him in a good, fun way." "And I hope that he has a sense of humor," she added. "I really hope he enjoys it." India Today called the idea "all sorts of genius." "Yes, we arent bluffing. An initiative both creative and genius, #ReadMyLips, wants Donald Trump’s attention, and it wants it now," the outlet reported. Mogul recruited a former Saturday Night Live "specialty-prop fabricator" to create the large vagina, the Huffington Post reported .

What happens when a piano is combined with technology? “Kids or anybody could learn how to play the piano really properly from the best musicians in the world,” said Mischa Dohler, composer and professor of Wireless Communications at King’s College London. 'Could we digitize skills?' Dohler’s aim is to build a database that records the movements of a piano player’s hands with the help of a special sensing glove that tracks every movement of the musician’s joints. Once the data is collected, a piano student can then wear another glove that can train the student’s hands. “You could imagine this so-called exoskeleton that you can put on your hand. It will pressurize the hands and the joints, and will move it gently at the beginning, and nudge essentially the body into the right shape and in the right way of moving your hand,” Dohler said. It is an example of what Dohler calls the “Internet of Skills” that he is demonstrating at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition in Los Angeles.
