The Baron Trump 3 In 1 Collection: The Last President (Or 1900), Travels And Adventures Of Little Baron Trump, Baron Trumps Marvellous Underground Journey

Posted by in categories: habitats, neuroscience, space travel

This collection contains the THREE novels by INGERSOLL LOCKWOOD that have surprised the world of the XXI century. This author wrote over 120 years ago, during the 1890‘s, these three novels, in which the characters are first, a kid, whose name was Baron Trump, and his Master is Don; and a separate novel about a president who resides in 5th avenue, New York, in a tower with his name, who surprisingly wins an election…The Baron Trump novels recount the adventures of the German boy Wilhelm Heinrich Sebastian Von Troomp, who goes by “Baron Trump”, as he discovers weird underground civilizations, offends the natives, flees from his entanglements with local women, and repeats this pattern until arriving back home at Castle Trump. Chris Riotta noted in Newsweek that Baron Trump’s adventures begin in Russia, and also mentioned another book of Ingersoll’s, The Last President, in which the president’s home city of New York is riven by protests against a rigged presidential election. Jaime Fuller wrote in Politico that Baron Trump is “precocious, restless, and prone to get in trouble”, often mentions his massive brain, and has a personalized insult for most people he meets. These novels, and some of its phrases and situations, really make people wonder if there are authors who have a window to the future, true prophets like Verne and his “From Earth to the Moon”, Poe with his Arthur Gordon Pim (a story that occurred with names and last names 50 years later); and Robertson in Futility or the Wreck of the Titan, a novel about the wreck of the Titanic, with locations, names and descriptions, written 20 years! before the actual events.

SpaceX Is on a Hiring Spree for Its Starlink Global Internet Project

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

After a string of delays, SpaceX’s Starlink project was finally launched last month. The ambitious aim of the project is to create a “global broadband” system by launching a network of satellites which will eventually be able to give fast internet access from anywhere, even remote locations which currently can’t get broadband internet access.

The project is moving ahead at a considerable pace, with aims to have the first internet access provided by 2021. It may take until November 2027 to get all of the satellites required for the global network launched and into place, but a basic version of the service may be possible with around 1,000 satellites. Within the U.S., some version of the service could be available with just 400 satellites in place.

Naturally, a project of this magnitude requires a huge logistical undertaking and a lot of knowledge from a lot of different sectors. And you can see the takeoff of interest in the Starlink project within SpaceX by analyzing the company’s hiring practices.

How smart technology is transforming the industrial world

Posted by in category: internet

Whether you call it Industry 4.0, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), or Smart Manufacturing, the power of technology is being felt throughout the industrial world and fundamentally changing value chains and production methods. Indeed, so great is the change that Capgemini’s Digital Transformation Institute predicts that smart factories could add as much as $1.5 trillion to the overall output of the industrial sector in the next five years. This is because of the turbo-charge effect of smart technology, which is enabling factories to produce more while lowering costs. According to Capgemini, some industries may almost double their operating profit and margin.

New deepfake algorithm allows you to text-edit the words of a speaker in a video

Posted by in category: information science

It is now possible to take a talking-head style video, and add, delete or edit the speaker’s words as simply as you’d edit text in a word processor. A new deepfake algorithm can process the audio and video into a new file in which the speaker says more or less whatever you want them to.
