first_imgMeghan MarkleGetty ImagesKate Middleton and the couple Sussex attended Trooping the Colour 2019 together. But the Royal couple seemed uncomfortable and may have shown signs of tension. At least according to a body language expert.Apparently, Judi James claims Kate’s body language showed tension and a lack of “relaxation.” Meghan Markle was also out and about, the Duchess of Sussex, who has not been seen in public since the birth of her son Archie Harrison, seemed relaxed and natural. The Duchess of Cambridge, was accompanied by Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.Judi told Fabulous Digital: “Meghan’s return to front line duty involved what looked at times like a rather tense, but also smiling carriage ride down the Mall with Harry, Camilla and Kate.” There could be many reasons for the supposed tension or maybe the observation was blown a little out of proportion. Reports have suggested that there has been an alleged feud brewing between Kate and Meghan and though there were also reports that the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge had set aside their differences for the sake of baby Archie. Now, that Meghan seems to be back from maternity leave, the tensions might rise again.  Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesThe expert added, “Kate’s posture was slightly self-diminished, curled in slightly and with her arms pulled into her sides and her hands clasped in her lap…..It was clearly Meghan looking the happiest and most relaxed here, using a cheek-rounding, congruent-looking smile and eye contact as she chatted to Kate.”The supposed competition between Kate and Meghan may flare up again, but we hope that both these Royals can learn to work together.

Open Garden plants app for open network

first_imgThe technology offers an “automatic path choice.” When the network detects multiple Internet connections, it will select the fastest one available and will switch to another connection if the original slows or goes off line. This is being promoted as a mobile mesh network that can route data “opportunistically” through the right assets at the right time. The advantage is that it can offload traffic from an overburdened access route to one less utilized. The Open Garden founders built and patented their own discovery mechanisms so devices that run the software can easily detect each other. When asked about the implications of this advancement on battery power, the answer was that most of the power consumption comes from the data transmission. Open Garden instead can help the user save some battery by offloading to WiFi, which uses less power than a 3G or 4G connection.As the app is freely downloadable, the team was asked how they intended to make any money. The Open Garden team’s answer was by the freemium business model, historically commonplace with Open Source ventures, where revenues come in from special enterprise-level services for business customers, or sponsorships, or advertising. The team said they aim for a freemium model with extra features like VPN access for business users. Explore further (Phys.org) — The Open Garden network app, which was launched in private beta in February, is now available free for download. The San Francisco based startup, founded in 2010, is set to break down the in walls of connectivity — in seeking out Internet access or making do with spotty connections — that have become the status quo. The Open Garden team voices a general complaint that Operators behave as if broken networks are a fact of life. “Mobile networks are like closed gardens, separated by walls. If you own a smartphone from Carrier A and find yourself unable to surf the mobile web, you cannot use spectrum owned by Carrier B, or a nearby fixed line broadband connection owned by Carrier C.” Citation: Open Garden plants app for open network (2012, June 5) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-06-garden-app-network.html More information: opengarden.com/ The Open Garden application interconnects devices, whether smartphones, laptops or tablets. to form a wireless peer-to-peer mesh network for access to the Internet. The team presented their case at the recent TechCrunch Disrupt conference. They answered questions from a conference panel about the capabilities, repercussions from industry, and business model for the startup.Cofounder and CEO Micha Benoliel told the audience that Open Garden is announcing the new app as “disruptive” because the application makes it so simple for a user to be connected.The mesh network allows Open Garden-enabled devices to automatically share Internet access and bandwidth. Essentially, you are riding on the Web access of other Open Garden app users, using peer-to-peer connections that form the network.center_img © 2012 Phys.Org Technology watchers reacting to the debut are supportive but tending to ask the same question: What will carriers do, if not openly revolt? The very idea of a crowdsourcing platform for mobile connectivity may not go down easily with carriers who may think this will hurt their business. The company says it may take time for carriers to accept the app as able to help their business. “The promise of hyperconnectivity will be fulfilled when the walls that separate the carriers’ closed garden finally open for the benefit of the industry and all users.” Benoliel has said that Open Garden already has an agreement with a “forward-looking” European carrier.Open Garden is available for Android, Windows, and Mac. The team plans for an iOS version in the future.On Monday, a reviewer said she was able to use Open Garden to surf the Internet on a smart phone using Firefox (Firefox is needed to browse with Open Garden if on an Android device, along with a browser add-on). Video streaming by way of another phone’s 4G connection, she said, looked a bit stilted but the quality was not bad.

The work was part of an overall project called, quite naturally, the Ruminant Genome Project. All three teams were made up of members from several institutions in China and a few other countries. All three groups have published their findings in the journal Science. Also, Dai Fei Elmer Ker and Yunzhi Peter Yang with the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Stanford University, respectively, have published a Perspective piece outlining the work by the three teams in the same journal issue.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Domesticated ruminants such as sheep and cows are important to humans. Others are important because of their unique physical characteristics. Deer antlers, for example, grow exceptionally quickly, and reindeer live in the Arctic without freezing or suffering depression due to long winter nights. In this new effort, all three teams sought to learn more about particular aspects of these unique mammals.In the first study, the researchers assembled the genomes of 44 ruminants covering all six members of the Ruminantia families. They created a phylogenetic tree for the group, which helped to clear up some of the mysteries in the family history. It also showed that the group as a whole suffered severe declines in population coinciding with humans migrating out of Africa.The work by the second team involved studying ruminant headgear—horns, antlers, pronghorns and ossicones. They found that despite their physical differences, the bony headgear shared many similarities. They also found that the reason deer antlers regenerate so quickly is because they exploit cancer-associated signaling paths. The deer also have tumor-suppressing genes that prevent tumors from growing in their antlers—information that could be useful in cancer research.

To find out, they studied the reindeer genome and discovered that reindeer have unique genes related to metabolizing vitamin D and circadian arrhythmicity, and also for female antler growth. And their unique digestive system helps them survive on limited plant growth. © 2019 Science X Networklast_img read more

And while that concept isn’t exactly new, the method of doing so certainly is: Microsoft is using drones to autonomously identify ideal locations for mosquito traps, as well as placing and retrieving them. After that, the mosquitos will be sequenced and their massive amounts of metagenomic data will be sorted with cloud computing.The hope? To find new strains of pathogens before they begin wreaking havoc, which will help us to prepare for potential outbreaks and maybe even develop cures.”We envision a worldwide system for collection and genomic analysis of mosquitoes, capable of detecting potential pathogens and their geographic spread, before they cause disease in the human population,” Microsoft Research’s Ethan Jackson wrote in a blog post.So far, the Project Premonition team has tested its concept in the Caribbean island of Grenada, but it’ll be interesting to see what sorts of insights they’ll find once it’s deployed further.last_img read more
