A massive magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck Mexico just before midnight on Thursday. California and Florida both have nice warm winters, but when you look at the summers, you can see why they put the movie studios in Hollywood. Researchers expect the Jefferson Project to have all of its systems fully integrated by the end of 2016. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide dissolves very easily in water, after it has dissolved it can be carried by the wind and bring on acidic rain even into places that aren’t as polluted.science in the news

According to researchers, brain functions in young men and women, aged 23 to 28, are changed by long-term alcohol use, but that these changes are significantly different in men and women.

A team of researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute led by Christopher Carothers, Director of the institute’s Center for Computational Innovations described for The Platform how True North is finding a new life as a lightweight snap-in on each node that can take in sensor data from the many components that are prone to failure inside, say for example, an 50,000 dense-node supercomputer ( like this one coming online in 2018 at Argonne National Lab) and alert administrators (and the scheduler) of potential failures This can minimize downtime and more important, allow for the scheduler to route around where the possible failures lie, thus shutting down only part of a system versus an entire rack.

So far no experimental data show any being produced, but the race for higher and higher energy collisions at the LHC goes on. Up another big notch now from 3.5 TeV per proton beam to 4 TeV for collisions at 8 TeV and eventually to 14 TeV and that’s Tera or Trillion electron Volts.
