You might have a desktop PC at work, school, or home. You might use one to work out tax returns or play the latest games; you might even be into building and tweaking computers. But how well do you know the components that make up a PC? Take the humble motherboard — it sits there, quietly keeping everything running, and rarely gets the same attention as the CPU or graphics card. Motherboards are remarkably important though, and full of really cool technology. So let’s go all Grey’s Anatomy, and dissect the motherboard — breaking down its various parts and seeing what each bit does! There are other things a motherboard does (e.g. holds the components in place, or provides feedback as to how well everything is functioning) but the aforementioned aspects are critical to how a PC operates, that almost every other part that makes up the motherboard, is related to these two things. Nearly every motherboard used in a standard desktop PC today will have sockets for the central processing unit (CPU), memory modules (nearly always a type of DRAM), add-in expansion cards (such a graphics card), storage, input/ouputs, and a means to communicate with other computers a...

CARBIOS breakthrough technology enables production of PET Bottles from 100% recycled plastic waste

CARBIOS has announced to have successfully accomplished the production of first PET-bottles made with 100% Purified Terephthalic Acid (rPTA). The company did it through the enzymatic biorecycling of plastic waste. The achievement of this remarkable milestone is groundbreaking and confirms the potential of the company’s technology to engage the whole industry in a responsible transition towards a circular economy. Alain Marty, Chief Scientific Officer at CARBIOS, explains, “We have successfully developed the first biological process with which all kinds of PET plastic waste can be broken down into its original components and reused to produce virgin plastic products for applications such as PET-bottles. This new step shows the strong potential of CARBIOS’ enzymatic technology and provides a breakthrough solution to help solve society’s growing waste problem.” Carbios’ proprietary biorecycling technology is based on the use of bioengineered enzymes and has the ability to turn PET plastic waste back into its original components at a rate of 97% in only 16 hours. Carbios also demonstrated that virgin PET can be made with 100% rPTA via its proprietary biorecycling process. However, ...

Ceremony marking 77 years of the war against Japanese aggression – China.org.cn Live

Editor’s note:  Chinese leaders took part in a grand gathering in Beijing on July 7, 2014 to mark the 77th anniversary of beginning of the Chinese people’s war of resistance against Japanese aggression. No need to reload page, content updates automatically every two minutes. All time is Beijing Time (GMT+0800). History is history; facts are facts. If any people attempt to deny history, the Chinese people and the people in the world will not allow it. Regrettably, after nearly 70 years of the Chinese People’s Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the world’s anti-fascist war, there are still some people who neglect the historical fact and millions of innocent lives lost in the wars, go against the tide of history and repeatedly deny or even whitewash the aggression history, damage international mutual trust and create regional tension, which trigger strong condemnation from peace-loving people of all countries including the Chinese people. In order to remember those who sacrificed their lives in the fight against the Japanese aggression, we will forever cherish that and rembmer them.

Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue in Bowmanville looking for donations after taking in record number of animals

Durham Region’s only centre for wildlife rehabilitation and education, Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue in Bowmanville, is urgently seeking donations after an especially busy season. The centre’s founder, Stefanie MacEwan says they took in more animals than they ever have over the last few months. “Every year, we can only take in the number of animals our budget allows for,” said MacEwan. “But at the end of the day, our goal is to make sure the public sees the importance of the work we do. So if we’re at capacity and a child comes to us and they found this animal… How hard is it to say no? you can’t say no.” When the centre first opened almost four years ago, MacEwan thought the centre would only be taking in 100 to 200 animals. “Our busy season runs from about the beginning of April right up until October,” she explained. “That’s when all the baby animals are born and people are more active, they’re outside more and they come across more wildlife.” Ahead of the busy ‘baby season,’ MacEwan says they’re stocking up on supplies including expensive, specialized feed for the animals. “The majority of our budget does go to feeds,” she said. “We make sure we feed every animal things that w...

Upgrading European emission standards is high on the agenda for policymakers amid hazardous dust pollution and

Upgrading European emission standards is high on the agenda for policymakers amid hazardous dust pollution and PM2.5 particles in the northern, northeastern and central regions. Thailand adopted the standards in 1996 to tackle pollution, aiming to implement them a year later. At that time, Thailand was the first country in Southeast Asia to adopt the European standard and enforce rules for vehicles and refineries. The current Euro 4 was announced in Thailand in 2012, seven years after Europe put the standard in place. Now Thailand has fallen behind Singapore, which made the jump from Euro 4 to Euro 6 in September 2017. It all means that the country has failed to commit to each step of the Euro standard timeline. Announcement of each step comes from the National Environment Board, now chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon. A source who is familiar with environmental matters told the Bangkok Post that the improvement of Euro standards will require serious collaboration by three ministries — Industry, Energy, and Natural Resources and Environment — because pollution has become such an urgent issue. “Each ministry has its own plan and committee overseei...

The V650 has high build quality and satisfactory overall performance, but with the same or a lower amount, you can find better options. The Cooler Master V650 Gold features good build quality, but this is not enough to beat the competition, especially since its price is stiff and availability, in the US market at least, is limited. With the same or even lower amount, someone can get better power supplies from Corsair (RM650x), Seasonic (Focus Plus Gold 650W), EVGA (SuperNOVA 650 G3), and Asus (Rog Strix 650).  Cooler Master’s V Gold line consists of four models, with capacities ranging from 550W to 850W. We have already evaluated the 750W unit (V750 Gold), and in this review, we will take a detailed look at the 650W model, which has enough power to handle a mid-level system. The V650 Gold (model number: MPY-6501-AFAAGV), like all the other members of the family, is fully modular and is equipped with a 135mm fluid dynamic bearing fan, which is supported by a semi-passive mode that can be deactivated, should you want the fan to be always spinning. Another interesting note about the V650 Gold is that it uses 16AWG gauges for the PCIe connectors, despite its modest capacity. N...

Три наивных вопроса о лифтинге нитями

Об использовании нитей в индустрии красоты впервые мы услышали в незапамятные времена – еще в 90-е начали говорить о вшивании золотых нитей под кожу. Надо сказать, армирование лица, шеи и зоны декольте до сих пор остается очень популярной процедурой. При вшивании их под кожу создается своеобразный подвижный каркас, который подтягивает кожу и не дает ей обвисать долгое время. Однако нити используются совсем другие. О тонкостях подтяжки лица при помощи нитей «Комсомолке» рассказала врач-дерматокосметолог Ирина Голещихина. - Нет, не все, – отвечает Ирина Николаевна. – Сейчас во Владивостоке работают в основном с тремя видами нитей: корейскими (их еще называют мезонити, или 3D-нити), американскими и российскими. Корейские – это тонкие нити из шовного материала, обработанные полимолочной кислотой, которая стимулирует коллагеногенез. - Эти нити больше уплотняют, нежели дают эффект лифтинга, поэтому их можно использовать не для всей областей, – говорит Ирина Голещихина. – Если вводить в зону подбородка, они могут дать обратный эффект – утяжелить кожу, и она обвиснет. Американские – полностью состоят из полимолочной кислоты. - Они оказывают очень хороший эффект, – расс...
