Satellite Isn’t What It Used to Be

I remember when we first had satellite TV services back during the late 1990s, if there was even a little rain in the forecast we would lose service and our friends said to buy Directv. I was really upset when this happened, because we would have a good movie on and then it would just go to all fuzzy static on the TV. After about three weeks of this type of service, my husband and I called and we complained enough to get out of our contract voided and we did not have to pay any kind of termination fees, we should have went to buy directTV. I wanted to make sure that we were going to be good with our new cable company that was local and we did not have to sign a contract with them. I really do not like being forced to sign contracts because it makes me feel like it is something that I can not get out of.

I was really happy to see that the new satellite company was not going to make me sign a contract. I thought that there were a lot of people that had gotten satellite recently so I put out a call on my social media, asking friends and family for any type of feedback that we could get on their satellite TV. I posted all of the problems that we had with the first time we had satellite television and a lot of people told me that they never had those type of problems with their current satellite system. I called one of my friends companies, she said that she had great luck with, and I ended up having someone come out to my house to install the satellite. I am saving so much money over the local cable company that we used to have, I am starting a savings account for a vacation next year with the extra money.

Airbus CEO: Will test autopilot at the end of the year

France’s aircraft manufacturing group “Airbus” we all have heard of it? As a veteran aircraft manufacturer in Europe R & D company. It has a bigger dream of letting autonomous vehicles fly in the sky. This sounds like a science fiction, perhaps in the near future, not only in air, but also in the air. Recently, Airbus CEO Tom Enders said at the DLD Technology Conference in Munich that Airbus plans to test a prototype of a self-driving flying car before the end of the year.

It is reported that Airbus set up the “urban air traffic” department last year, committed to the development of self-driving flying cars, in short, is a helicopter-type flying car that can carry people. Similar to the car sharing program, Airbus’ flying car is called CityAirbus. The company’s flying car project is still in the pilot phase. In addition to technical feasibility, environmental protection is also a concern for Airbus. Airbus hopes the project can solve the problem of road congestion and ease the traffic congestion caused by population growth.

According to the concept sketch published by Airbus at the time, the flying car has two wings and eight propellers underneath. The wings tilt depending on the situation when the car is flying vertically or horizontally. Currently, this flying car can only take one person. Like the current taxi app, users can subscribe and use the flying car through the APP in the future.

In addition, the initial phase of the project operation will still be operated by pilots, but in the future will gradually transition to automatic driving mode. In addition, in accordance with the plan of Airbus, flight tests will be conducted this year, and mass production prototypes will be confirmed before 2020. What are you looking forward to in the next 10 years or putting into use?

Made in China! Dubai robot robots first summer job

Today, with the development of artificial intelligence, many robots can begin to perform some simple tasks instead of humans. This will not only save time and manpower, but also greatly improve efficiency. According to foreign media reports, this summer, Dubai will launch the first robot police. By 2030, robotic police are expected to account for 25% of the size of the Dubai police force. This means that robotic cops may be serving you in the streets of Dubai in the near future.

It is learned that this robotic police named “E-Patrol Robot Sheriff” (electronic patrol robot police), 1.6 meters in height, master a number of language skills to recognize face, through the touch screen alarm, you can track criminals or suspects, Pay traffic fines and other operations.

Simply put, it can be patrolled around the clock monitoring, the use of visual system, you can not use any human control for autonomous walking, autonomous mobile crawling face information, facial recognition. Can effectively assist the police to arrest fugitives, but also interact with passengers to answer questions, and detect the ambient temperature, early detection of fire and other security risks, thus saving the police force. It is worth mentioning that it is made in China. Previously, this robot police station in Zhengzhou Railway Station on duty, with built-in sensors to detect a small-scale fire.

At present, Dubai is vigorously creating a “Smart City,” hoping to become a global leader in this field. The deployment of the E-Patrol Robot Sheriff has made Dubai one of the first cities in the world to deploy robotic police. Deployment of robot police is only part of Dubai’s “smart police system” plan, and in the future there will be more investment. Dubai will also set up a smart police station, using artificial intelligence (AI) technology to ensure urban safety and more.

The screen can only show the time can you accept such a minimalist phone it

With the development of science and technology, smart phones are now more and more integrated, and can achieve functions including, but not limited to, making phone calls, listening to music, playing games, surfing the Internet, and shopping. Once our cell phone is out of power or lost, we are at risk of suffering from the so-called cell phone anxiety disorder. So some people do the opposite, designed a very minimalist style can reflect the smart phone – The Light Phone.

To be honest, The Light Phone can no longer be regarded as a smart phone, essentially more like a functional machine, you can only make calls the most basic functions. From the outside, the front screen shows time in everyday situations, while the phone number is displayed only when you dial or call. Basically, you can not send and send text messages and other operations. The Light Phone also offers a lock-free SIM card, but only with 2G network, does not support Bluetooth.

This back to nature, simplistic mobile phone, in fact, landed in 2015 on the US crowdfunding website Kickstarter, in January this year, began shipping to the first batch of users, and now you can come up with 150 US dollars to order, is expected to Delivered at the end of May, but this phone is currently only available in the United States.

Fingertip gyro toxic: no fun to play but you just can’t stop it

Recently, the Finger Spinner started to flicker on the Internet and became like a man and a woman. Fingertip gyro was originally a tool designed to help people decompression, as long as we use the index finger and thumb hold the middle bearing part, gently dial the blade, the gyro will spin up. Finger top gyro is very friendly to the user, because get started quickly, but the network also has some tricks video.

Fingertip gyro does not seem to be anything special, but many people are so fond of this gadget, the video on fingertips Gyro has more than one hundred million hits on YouTube, and even some users made a YouTube site Spoof video, so that fingertips Gyro into the movie “interstellar crossing.”

Fingertip gyro probably want to stop your finger moment, kill boring time. In addition, recently introduced a foreign country called Spinner Pad desktop gadget, is fixed to the top gyro gyro on the desktop, so you can move at any time.

If you are an Apple user, you can also download a free app called Finger Spinner. This is an iOS game that can simulate a fingertip gyro, but after all, the sliding screen operation, certainly not as good as spinning fingertips gyro fun.

Drinking alcohol, health effects or free it

So research institutes are very happy, after all, they have a problem. Wine companies are happy, no matter how much, lichen prime is not a thing of foreign wine. Some media are happy and the annual tasks of the business sector are less difficult to complete. Some investors are happy, seeing this liquor plate is up non-stop.

What is lichenin?

Lichenysin is a substance secreted by Bacillus licheniformis, a bacterium that is widespread in nature. Chinese liquor is fermented with koji, while koji is actually a complex of fungi and bacteria. Each song inside the song is not the same, so the fermentation products are complex, creating a liquor “style and flavor diversity.” As a passerby, Bacillus licheniformis mixed into the song, resulting in the fermentation products appeared lichen prime, that’s no more normal.

How did that passer-by become a health guard? This goes back to thirty years ago, when domestic clinical microbiologists in our country particularly liked doing “bacteriostatic experiments,” which is to see if a substance or strain can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in petri dishes. After all, Fleming discovered the penicillin eighty years ago. At that time there was a doctor to a patient’s vaginal swab microbiological culture and found that in addition to the common Lactobacillus (normal vaginal flora, the resulting acidic environment can inhibit the growth of other harmful microorganisms) there is a strange, The result of the identification is Bacillus licheniformis. Laboratory studies have found that this bacterium grows well in acid environments made by Lactobacilli and can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus.

That era, the concept of probiotics still more than now. That year, our father and mother and grandparents toss “Kombucha” momentum than we made “enzyme” most of the momentum. Nothing new under the sun

So for Bacillus licheniformis research started, continues today, is a variety of Bacillus licheniformis preparations, from diarrhea to vaginitis, a very wide range of uses.

Lichen, as a metabolite isolated from Bacillus licheniformis, has also been studied. Laboratory research found its various biological activities. However, tens of millions of laboratory research, can go to the clinic without one. Sometimes drugs can not be better, you can develop health products, ah, after all, as long as it is not bad on the line.

Licorice wine will be able to fight cancer? There are alcohol in the wine too!

What does it mean to have lichenin in liquor (or anything else you’ve never heard of)? First of all, it means that fermented liquor is very complex, what peat smell, nutty flavor, tobacco flavor, floral fruit flavor … That’s nothing. Our wine can taste the smell of burning plastic and 80 different rotten leaves Taste, if you do not know “product” words. Second, mean that Professor Xu’s laboratory testing technology has improved. Now that detection techniques are getting more accurate, trace detection can detect even 1 trillionth of such levels. So, what is found in what I’m not surprised, whether it is penguin DDT or liquor anti-cancer substances.

Speaking of anti-cancer, “logical discovery of traces of anti-cancer substances in the wine, so moderate drinking health” such a logical deduction can be called classic. Because no matter what kind of wine, alcohol is one of the important or main component, and alcohol is a type of carcinogen. Alcohol can cause oral cancer, throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer, the evidence is conclusive. In addition, other hazards of alcohol are more clearly understood. It is the sixth most common cause of death for adults in China and directly causes the death of more than 300,000 people each year.

If this is not enough to be on the waking eye, the next piece of data will make you even more “hypnotized” – nearly 14 million years of alcohol-induced DALY annually in China. DALY is the result of a factor that leads to the full healthy life lost from the onset to the death. In other words, if you do not drink alcohol at all, the Chinese live a healthy life of more than 14 million years a year. Think carefully.

How about Chinese drinking now? According to the research conducted by WHO and other public health agencies, the per capita annual pure alcohol intake of our population over the age of 15 in 2010 was 6.7 liters, which is the mid-stream level in the world. However, the survey found that our drinking rate is not high, about half of men over the age of 15 and over 80% of women over 15 said they do not drink. In this way, the per capita consumption of alcohol consumed by those who drink alcohol is as high as 15 liters or more, ranking the highest in the world. Even more worrying is that with the continuous decline in global per capita consumption of alcohol, we staged a “retrograde drunk beauty,” and consumption continued to rise.

The dotted line in the figure shows the change in per capita alcohol intake in China. The figure calculated by the national population is not too high compared with other countries. However, if only those who drink alcohol are counted, their per capita annual alcohol intake will reach 15.1 liters in 2010, ranking the highest in the world. Image Source: Literature [1]

I also drink alcohol, although every drop of drink I drink brings me a higher health risk. But as the oldest human use of drugs, I know the health risks of drinking alcohol and try to keep those risks under control while enjoying its social function.

If a liquor company does not improve the taste and stability of its products, it does not explore the cultural value of the products, but rather the “health effects”. What I think, no matter what, if it is done, it is a rogue. Both china and abroad.



We won’t go into our entire dissertation on search engines, their means and methods, or the best way to submit to them here. We’ve been submitting to them, and studying them forever, but there isn’t the space here to go into all that ūüėČ What we do want to share with you, honestly, is our take on companies, services, and programs that submit your site to massive numbers of “search engines” …do they work? In a word…NO. We’ve personally tried many of them, and even offered this as a service of our own at one point. We stopped, why? Because it simply doesn’t work effectively, and we won’t sell something we don’t¬†believe in. The way most of these programs and services work, is they sell you on the concept of automatically submitting your website to 100, 200, 300, 400, or whatever number, of the top “search engines” on the Internet. How many search engines do you use? The cold hard fact is there is arguably 6 to 12 search engines that matter, and that’s it. So what makes up the rest of the top 400 list? Tiny search engines, small directories, and mostly “Free For All” Links pages that in the grand scheme of the Internet, don’t amount to spitting in the ocean. In addition, many of the major search engines are just not friendly to URLs submitted by these “robots”. True…the more people that see your link the better, but bang for the buck??…it just doesn’t add up.
