He remarks that we are at Kittyhawk as far as life extension goes. Most folks, including the Wright brothers, did not see a widespread use for aircraft at the time. Today in life extension the scientists working on it really do know what they are chasing.

My mission is to drastically improve your life by helping you break bad habits, build and keep new healthy habits to make you the best version of yourself.

Anti-solar panel can generate electricity at night, researchers say

Posted by in categories: solar power, sustainability

In order to develop solar panels that generate electricity at night, you just need them to operate in the exact opposite way solar panels work during the day.

OneWeb joins the satellite Internet gold rush this week

Posted by in categories: business, internet

It’s a model the company believes makes sense because the right answer for getting regulatory approval and delivering service in the United States or the Philippines or Indonesia will vary, Steckel said. “We’re going to be doing business with partners around the world,” Steckel said. “Our style is not confrontational. We’re using a different model. It’s a big world.”

OneWeb plans to offer its first customer demonstrations by the end of 2020 and provide full commercial global services in 2021.

How Drone Swarms May Save Urban Warriors

Posted by in categories: drones, military, robotics/AI

In the future of urban warfare, swarms of autonomous drones and ground vehicles will win battles before they even begin.

DARPA’s OFFensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics (OFFSET) program recently tested a swarm of 250 unmanned vehicles in a mock city at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center in Mississippi.

Waon therapy improves the prognosis of patients with chronic heart failure

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

We developed a Waon therapy (soothing warm therapy) and have previously reported that repeated Waon therapy improves hemodynamics, peripheral vascular function, arrhythmias, and clinical symptoms in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Waon therapy on the prognosis of CHF patients.

We studied 129 patients with CHF in NYHA functional class III or IV who were admitted to our hospital between January 1999 and March 2001. In the Waon therapy group, 64 patients were treated with a far infrared-ray dry sauna at 60 °C for 15 min and then kept on bed rest with a blanket for 30 min. The patients were treated daily for 5 days during admission, and then at least twice a week after discharge. In the control group, 65 patients, matched for age, gender, and NYHA functional class, were treated with traditional CHF therapy. The follow-up time was scheduled for 5 years.

Recent, complete follow-up data on each patient were obtained. The overall survival rate was 84.5% (Kaplan–Meier estimate). Twelve patients died in the control group and 8 patients died in the Waon therapy group at 60 months of follow-up. Cardiac events due to heart failure or cardiac death occurred in 68.7% of the control group but only 31.3% of the Waon therapy group (P < 0.01) at 60 months of follow-up.

USAF set to field StormBreaker on F-15E

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

The US Air Force (USAF) is expected to declare an initial operating capability (IOC) with the Raytheon Missile Systems GBU-53/B StormBreaker glide munition on the Boeing F-15E Strike Eagle multirole combat aircraft in the first half of this year, following compliance with a Required Assets Available (RAA) milestone, which is anticipated in the next few weeks.

The StormBreaker RAA is the pre-IOC benchmark capability to arm 12 USAF F-15Es with two, fully-loaded (four weapons) BRU-61/A carriage systems each for 1.5 sorties (144 assets total).

Optimised to address moving battlefield targets, StormBreaker — formerly designated ‘Small Diameter Bomb II’ — is a 250 lb-class, air-launched unpowered glide weapon system furnished with a unique tri-mode seeker, which combines millimetre wave (MMW) radar, imaging infrared (IIR), and semi-active laser (SAL) sensors with a GPS/inertial navigation system (INS) autopilot (the provider for which is undisclosed) for precision accuracy in adverse weather conditions. The seeker’s optical dome is protected by a clamshell shroud, which is jettisoned before the seeker is activated. A Rockwell Collins TacNet bi-directional dual-band datalink enables Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) connectivity with aircraft and an ultra-high frequency (UHF) link with a ground designator.
