The human body needs sleep as much as it needs food and water. People who struggle for shut-eye could benefit from monitoring their sleep, but they have limited options for doing so. In a new study, one team describes a potential solution: a self-powering smart pillow that tracks the position of the head.
I'm a little curious about the kind of data this can collect and what one would be able interpret from with it.
A hypothesis for how the universe got its magnetic field
When we look out into space, all of the astrophysical objects that we see are embedded in magnetic fields. This is true not only in the neighborhood of stars and planets, but also in the deep space between galaxies and galactic clusters.
#California likely will have an energy shortfall equivalent to what it takes to power about 1.3 million homes when use is at its peak during the hot and dry summer months, state officials said Friday.
The future is uh... bright
OK, well, I guess that's it? The #nix manual doesn't explain how to start a service - only imperative package management is mentioned.
I thought it could be done declaratively, but with which command, I don't know.
Following the "First steps with nix" and using `default.nix` didn't yield any results either...
Maybe it's mandatory to have #nixOS installed to run services? 🤷
Le téléphone du Premier ministre espagnol infecté par le logiciel espion Pegasus
Et voilà ce qu'arrive quand on n'investit pas dans l'opensource et qu'on participe activement dans un marché d'espionnage et surveillance.
La lame peut se tourner vers soi.
#Vegan diets in children may bring heart benefits but pose growth risks
Children on vegan diets have a healthier cardiovascular profile and less body fat than their omnivore peers, but the diets may affect growth, bone mineral content and micronutrient status, according to researchers from UCL and the Children's Memorial Health Institute in Warsaw.
Quantum weirdness is opening new doors for electron microscopes, powerful tools used for high-resolution imaging.
Split an electron like a wave, send it past a sample, record which slit it came back in from and measure its properties, #science, and you have yourself an image.
I always marvel at things like this. Very impressive.
As a #paramedic, University of Toronto alumnus Amir Allana routinely responds to a wide range of calls—from people suffering a heart attack or stroke to those experiencing mental health issues and addiction.
> It's difficult for newer paramedics who spend all their schooling thinking about trauma and cardiac arrest, only to realize, "Oh, that's just 10% of what I do"
Aren't the 90 other % the job of cops?
Elevation of privilege vulnerabilities can be used to gain persistent root access.
Good thing the code is #opensource and one can inspect it to contribute to solutions. Nice find!
Gemeenten heroverwegen gebruik van omstreden Chinese camera's
Er zijn zorgen dat de Chinese overheid de camera's kan gebruiken om te spioneren.
Grappig dat ze zich zorgen maken over Chinese hardware, maar VS software is OK? #Apple #microsoft #google zijn niet #opensource en van de de VS wetgeving verplicht om gegevens met se overheid te delen. Na #Snowden weten we ook dat ze overal spioneren.
Maar China is het probleem...
Nederlandse providers moeten populaire illegale torrentsites blokkeren
Het is echt geen wonder dat meer mensen gaan torrenten als ze meerdere streaming diensten moeten hebben om alles te kunnen kijken. Deze bedrijven zijn toch zelf schuld het aanbod zo moeilijk bereikbaar te maken.
Geef ona een enkele dienst waar ik alles kan kijken voor minder dan 50€, dan gaan we ook minder torrenten.
California start-up sends tiny robots on voyage into brains
Sending miniature robots deep inside the human skull to treat brain disorders has long been the stuff of science fiction—but it could soon become reality.
Impressive but at the same time, pretty scary. Also, after puncturing a cyst, do they just wait for the brain to absorb the fluid? And how exactly is thus guided with "#magnets"? Very sparse on information
No longer a last resort: Pulling #CO2 from the air
To save the world from the worst ravages of #climateChange, slashing carbon pollution is no longer enough—CO2 will also need to be sucked out of the atmosphere and buried, a landmark UN report is expected to say on Monday.
Couldn't we dedicate a few wind turbines to solely pumping air deep underwater? Aren't the oceans one if our biggest carbon sinks?
And of course plant a fuckton of trees.
Face au blocage de nombreux sites Internet et au contrôle des réseaux sociaux orchestrés par le Kremlin, Ukrainiens et militants russes anti-guerre résistent à coup de messageries décentralisées et de listes de diffusion.
Omicron is trouncing the argument for “natural immunity” to #COVID
> The unvaccinated people fared the worst, producing a mean 50 percent neutralizing antibody titer of just 79.5 against omicron. The mean titer against omicron in vaccinated people was 680. Unvaccinated people also had low-to-negligible levels of neutralizing antibodies against the other five variants.
Five things to know about the EU's landmark digital act
Very nice. I'm surprised this passed, but happy it did. Even they discover flaws later on, it's better than nothing.
#GAFAM has too much power
There’s not a lot of details on the program right now
And people will keep paying for it🤣
Men and women process pain signals differently
A new study published in the journal Brain shows for the first time that neurons in the spinal cord process pain signals differently in women compared to men. The finding could lead to better and more personalized treatments for chronic pain, which are desperately needed, especially in light of the opioid epidemic.
