Good morning win.


Same here. Just finished my second article for the paper Het Wekelijks Nieuws. Got me a new job as a journalist.

CONGRATS on the new job, Julie!!! :-)


Good morning everyone. :-)



Thanx Doc :)

Good evening win.
7) Message boards : SETI@home Science : Will NASA announce the discovery of life on Europa next week? (Message 1819361)
Posted 5 days ago by Profile Julie
The Telegraph has an article on it, so it doesn't seem like a hoax to me.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/09/21/nasa-to-release-details-of-surprising-activity-on-europa/

“Astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean on Europa,” the agency said. NASA has announced a teleconference to be held on Monday afternoon next week, during which it will present new findings from images of Europa.

NASA sought to quell some of the more outlandish expectations by stipulating that its new findings were most certainly “NOT aliens”.

9) Message boards : Politics : Decrease of population growth (Message 1818613)
Posted 8 days ago by Profile Julie
http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

At this day, the number of births are more than the double of number of deaths. Not a good perspective for the future.

https://www.brookings.edu/blog/future-development/2015/09/04/will-the-world-reach-10-billion-people/

Healthcare is the prime factor why earths population is rapidly increasing. People live longer, most diseases can be cured these days, even a few forms of cancer as well.

Contrary to common wisdom, rapid population growth is the result of development, not of misery. It is driven largely by the fact that people live longer, and longer lives mean more people, even with fewer children per family.


A remarkable fact in the article:

In fact, the number of children (age 0-14) has hardly increased since 2000 and is expected to remain at around two billion throughout most of this century. In other words, all of today’s global population growth comes from higher numbers of adults.


In the span of 100 years (between 1950 and 2050), the world’s population will have nearly quadrupled (from 2.5 billion to around 9.5 billion). This dramatic acceleration can be seen in the demographic profile of our planet: today 92 percent of all humans were born after 1949 and some 70 percent of those alive today are still expected to be living in 2050.


The following article increases our hope for the future though:

https://www.brookings.edu/blog/future-development/2015/04/28/can-10-billion-people-live-and-eat-well-on-the-planet-yes/

However, population explosion is a myth. Today, we have 7.3 billion people. In 2050, we will have around 9 billion, and in 2100 the world population will possibly reach its peak with about 10-11 billion people. This implies an actual annual population increase of less than 1 percent with a tendency to fall to zero by 2100.


A good advice from the author:

Annual growth of demand can be met by helping farmers to intensify production where the yield gap is high.

Conscious consumption and less waste in rich countries would already be a safe strategy to provide affordable food for all.


However, we all seem to have a different point of view on the matter:

http://www.businessinsider.com/10-trends-we-can-expect-to-see-in-the-year-2100-2011-10?IR=T

United Nations has projected that our incredible population growth will level off at around 10 billion people by the year 2100.

Already, at less than seven billion, we are experiencing severe poverty, hunger, a shortage of resources, increased urbanization and climate change issues.

Will we be doomed by 2100, or can we make it work? Since we've only got one planet (so far), let's hope for the latter.

As I have said repeatedly on these forums. Let's send a probe and bring some of it back--if it is infact "Matter"

As I recall, dark matter and energy is supposed to be all around us but impossible to see or detect with equipment at our disposal. How convenient. Otherwise they would have to go back to page one and reinvent physics.


4% of the universe is made out of matter as we know it. Something must fill up the rest of it. A lot of research has been done already on dark matter and dark energy. We know they exist and they have gotten a specified name. We have a broad knowledge already, thanx to research and math of course.

Update:

First physics experiment at HIE-ISOLDE begins

“It’s a major breakthrough. This is the result of eight years of development and manufacturing. This would not have been possible without the dedication of the technical staff at CERN. But what makes us most proud isn’t that we built a machine, but that we have attracted enthusiastic users to do forefront physics. We are looking forward to this exciting high intensity period,” says Yacine Kadi , leader of the HIE-ISOLDE project.


Update for scientists:

ICE-DIP project comes to a close with workshop held at CERN

ICE-DIP brings together CERN, Intel and universities to offer training to five PhD students in advanced information and communication technologies (ICT).
The focus of the project, which launched in 2013, has been the development of next-generation techniques for acquiring and processing data that are relevant for the trigger and data-acquisition systems of the LHC experiments. The developments made by the ICE-DIP researchers are of great interest for CERN’s future computing facility upgrades, other research laboratories and, potentially, other business sectors too.

Got The Shoe Back

Ay ay ay ay ay!

I only have one shoe left,
And some eye candy.
There's a place for it
In de blind spot of the
Corners of my eyes.

Grabbing a taxicab to
Places I've never seen
And the poet left me
Another note.

Ay ay ay ay ay!

My other shoe is still missing
And my radar love took it with him,
Rambling on as the train goes by,
Leaving a sound of sweetness in my ears.

Ay ay ay ay ay!

Go meet your own dreams, mah!

There ain't no cherry pie here and
My drink got stuck in the lost shoe,
So now it's gone, just like her.
That's why I changed my name.

Ay ay ay ay ay!

I'm gonna see you, everytime I turn my back
And meet a sweet man in front of me.

Michael brought me my shoe back after
Eating some crisps Mark brought him.

The poet promised he would write me.
Told him it wasn't necessary anymore..

Ay ay ay ay ay!

20) Message boards : SETI@home Science : Do you think aliens use radio waves to communicate with each other? (Message 1816397)
Posted 18 days ago by Profile Julie
Ligo tries to detect ripples in spacetime caused by massive cosmic events that produce gravity ripples (fluctuations in the warpage of space). It is not likely that this would be a medium for sending a message or communicating amongst others on this putative alien world.

An interferometer could be used to improve the sensitivity of radio and optical telescopes however.


They will build a new telescope to search for gravitational waves, it will be called the Einstein Telescope. The instrument will be much more refined than the LIGO. The only question is where it will be build, a few options are Hungary and the Netherlands, the latter site has optimal soil conditions it seems.


http://www.aei.mpg.de/18498/03_Einstein_Telescope

The strategy behind the ET project is to build an observatory that overcomes the limitations of current detector sites by hosting more than one GW detector. It will consist of three nested detectors, each composed of two interferometers with arms 10 kilometres long. One interferometer will detect low-frequency gravitational wave signals (2 to 40 Hz), while the other will detect the high-frequency components. The configuration is designed to allow the observatory to evolve by accommodating successive upgrades or replacement components that can take advantage of future developments in interferometry and also respond to a variety of science objectives.
