Call for super-rich to donate more to tackle coronavirus pandemic

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

The world’s richest people are being urged to urgently donate big chunks of their fortunes to the global effort to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, and help millions of people across the globe whose lives have been thrown into crisis by Covid-19.

Some billionaires – including Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey – have committed huge amounts of their money to fund solutions to the unfolding crisis.

While some billionaires have pledged vast chunks of their fortunes others have been criticised for not giving enough, or even at all.

👍hm, ok as I thought.

A hole in the ozone opens up every year above Antarctica — but scientists were surprised to find one on the other side of the planet.

Where was everyone when these channels were dedicating so much time and effort to help create awereness and get support for these creatures in Africa?

The government that neglected this eventhough they are not from Africa have neglected something that has now created, trillions of dollars of losses, and even more is coming up.

The ‘quantum magnet’

Posted by in categories: computing, engineering, particle physics, quantum physics

Circa 2011 essentially a magnet could be a battery and cpu and a gpu with magnonics.

Harvard physicists have expanded the possibilities for quantum engineering of novel materials such as high-temperature superconductors by coaxing ultracold atoms trapped in an optical lattice — a light crystal — to self-organize into a magnet, using only the minute disturbances resulting from quantum mechanics. The research, published in the journal Nature, is the first demonstration of such a “quantum magnet” in an optical lattice.

As modern technology depends more and more on materials with exotic quantum mechanical properties, researchers are coming up against a natural barrier.
