first_img(Visited 36 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 The secret of the archer fish’s powerful spits has been discovered, and it isn’t powerful muscles.The fish that shoots bugs out of the air uses physics, a paper in PLoS ONE declared.  By letting physics amplify the momentum in the drop shot out of the water, the fish achieves six times the wallop its own muscles can attain.  Nature News posted a video of the fish and described how it works:The researchers found that the first section of the water to leave the fish’s mouth was traveling about two meters per second. But as the fish continued to expel water into the jet, the speed increased. This back-end power forced more water and momentum into the “head” of the jet. “As a result, the power that the head of the jet can deliver upon impact increases during shooting,” the authors explained in their paper.Vailati and team found that this is similar to a mechanism used by on-demand inkjet printers.  In a strange symbiosis of biomimetics, printer engineers may be able to improve their designs by studying how the fish accomplishes what they came up with independently.Nature News also quoted the authors’ evolutionary inclinations from their paper:The fish’s strategy is evolutionarily clever. “This advantage would come without the evolutionary cost for the development of highly specialized internal structures dedicated to the storing of mechanical energy,” the authors noted.See also PhysOrg and BBC News.   Source: Vailati A, Zinnato L, Cerbino R (2012) How Archer Fish Achieve a Powerful Impact: Hydrodynamic Instability of a Pulsed Jet in Toxotes jaculatrix. PLoS ONE 7(10): e47867. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0047867.Evolution is not clever.  Evolution does not calculate the cost of development.  Evolution does not design specialized internal structures dedicated to the storing of mechanical energy.  Once again, we see evolution tacked on to a design story like some kind of vestigial organ from the 1800’s.The archer fish was one of the illustrations of design used by early films from Moody Institute of Science.  It remains a good illustration today, in fact, even more so.   There’s much more than muscle involved.  The fish has to correct for distortion at the air-water interface, have a perfect aim, calculate the height, and know the energy required to get the bug to release its strong grip on the twig.  All these things must work together for the fish to eat.  How many archer fish had to die before the right mutations came along?  Get real; get intelligent design.last_img read more

first_imgBARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Roma made the already daunting task of beating Barcelona that much harder after scoring two own goals to help the Spanish side secure a 4-1 victory in the opening leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday.The pair of own goals by Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas plus some sloppy defending that allowed Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez to also score left Roma on the verge of elimination before next week’s return leg in Rome.“We committed individual mistakes and made it easier for them, and you can’t do that against Barcelona,” Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco said.With Roma reeling following its two self-inflicted wounds, Pique added a third goal for the hosts.Edin Dzeko pulled one back for Roma in the 80th minute before Suarez scored Barcelona’s fourth, breaking his streak of 10 matches without a goal in the competition.The victory extended Barcelona’s unbeaten run in the Champions League to 26 straight home matches, a streak that dates back to September 2013.“Football is game of errors, you try to make your rival commit them while you limit yours,” Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde said. “We are happy because it was a complicated match, but they showed they are a good team and we have a long way to go before we can say we are in the semifinals.”Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, left, challenges for the ball with Roma’s Kostas Manolas during a Champions League quarter-final, first leg soccer match between FC Barcelona and Roma at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, Spain, Wednesday, April 4, 2018.(AP Photo/ Manu Fernandez)Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-0 in the night’s other match after first-half goals by Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane.Roma, playing in quarterfinals for the first time in a decade, succeeded in disrupting the hosts’ ball-possession attack by pressuring up the pitch. But its defending lapses either produced or played a direct part in all four of Barcelona goals.Lionel Messi showed no signs of being slowed down by the leg muscle problem that caused him to miss two friendlies for Argentina and be reserved as a substitute at Sevilla on Saturday, when his goal in the 89th-minute secured a 2-2 draw.Messi had already forced Roma to swarm on several occasions to stop his runs before the visiting defense finally broke when Ivan Rakitic intercepted the ball near the box and started the attack that ended De Rossi’s costly error.Messi sped into the area and passed for Andres Iniesta, whose returned pass to the Argentina forward would have left him in good striking position. De Rossi stretched to cut off the pass, only for the tip of his right boot to redirect the ball into the bottom corner of the net for the 38th-minute opener.“The goal by Daniele (De Rossi) from the edge of the area, that ball only goes in once in a 100 times. It conditioned the match,” Di Francesco said.Kostas suffered similar bad luck in the 55th when his clearance of a low cross by Rakitic hit the post and ricocheted off his knee before finally crossing the goal-line.“It’s not just luck that we get own goals in our favor,” Pique said. “I think that if these goals go our way it’s because we press high, we push up in attack (and) the ball is in the opposition area more than usual in other teams’ matches.”Roma’s Diego Perotti, tries to stop Barcelona’s Luis Suarez, right, during a Champions League quarter-final, first leg soccer match between FC Barcelona and Roma at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, Spain, Wednesday, April 4, 2018.(AP Photo/ Manu Fernandez)Pique made it 3-0 four minutes later when he only had to tap in the rebound from a save by goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who palmed a shot by Suarez right to the unmarked defender.Suarez scored his first goal in the tournament since March 2017 after a Roma defender Federico Fazio tried to intercept a pass, instead leaving the ball for the Uruguay striker to drill home.Sergio Busquets returned for Barcelona after being sidelined for three weeks with a fractured bone in his right foot.Lorenzo Pellegrini started in place of Radja Nainggolan after the Roma midfielder was ruled unfit to play because of a muscle injury he picked up over the weekend.___By JOSEPH WILSON , Associated PressMore AP Champions League coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/ChampionsLeagueTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Jessica Dolcourt/CNET After Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, unveiled the company’s foldable Mate X smartphone on Sunday, the audience ooohed and ahhhed. When he announced the price – a staggering 2,300 euros ($2,600) – the audience gasped. The price tag practically makes the $1,980 Samsung Galaxy Fold, unveiled on Wednesday, a steal. Huawei is certainly giving the attendees of MWC Barcelona something to talk about – and for once, it’s a controversy they’re likely to relish. Mobile World Congress 2019 Huawei Mate X triple threat: Foldable phone with 5G, lots of cameras Mobile World Congress 2019 Huawei Mate X is a foldable phone with 5G reading • With Mate X, Huawei hopes to unfold new reputation as innovator Jul 9 • Killer cameras and battery life might meet their match in the Note 10 Huawei 2:43 The Mate X emerges as Huawei faces intensified scrutiny over the security of its equipment and its ties to the Chinese government. Meng Wanzhou, the company’s chief financial officer and daughter of the founder, is under arrest in Canada awaiting extradition to the US for Justice Department charges related to alleged sanctions violations on Iran. The controversy is amplified by the rising tensions between the US and China over trade negotiations and the prospect of tariffs.  With all of those other troubles, what’s a little debate about the price of innovation?Huawei’s presence at MWC is more than just about a single phone. The industry sees the debut of foldable devices as a defining moment in history, akin to the launch of the original iPhone, and Huawei wants to be at the forefront. It’s a chance to rewrite the narrative that has – rightly or wrongly — been forced upon the Chinese telecommunications giant. • “We want to show the world that 5G can make the world better,” Yu told a handful of reporters at MWC. “We are leading in this.”Huawei founder and president, Ren Zhangfei, earlier this week denied any spying activity in an interview this week with CBS This Morning, and said his daughter’s arrest was politically motivated. (Disclosure: CNET and CBS This Morning share the same parent.)Yu denied the allegations have had a negative impact on its consumer business around the world. “Our customers trust us,” he said. How the Mate X feelsUnlike the Galaxy Fold, which features a larger display that folds inward like a book, the Mate X unfolds outward with a large continuous display. When folded, the front forms a 6.6-inch display, while the back is a 6.38-inch. Both sides swing out to form an 8-inch panel. I had a chance to try out the device and found it to be surprisingly polished considering how protective they are about the device. The two sides are a little stiff when you fold and unfold it, and it locks with a little latch the clicks in place. You push a button on the spine to release the other side, letting you unfold it. huawei-mate-x-mwc-2019-on-stage-richard-yu-2Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, shows off the Mate X. Andrew Hoyle/CNET Yu said the phone is rated for 100,000 folds. He said that would be more than enough for an average consumer. I responded that if I spent $2,600 on this thing, I’d be folding and unfolding it all day.The spine acts as an ergonomic grip for the device when it’s unfolded. A screen that size can get unwieldy, and holding it with one hand while shooting it with my smartphone was workable because of that grip. Just don’t try to fold it back up with one hand – I almost dropped it when I tried. “They made some interesting design choices that not only make the Mate X look different, but in many eyes better than Samsung,” said Carolina Milanesi, an analyst at Creative Strategies. Ever since Samsung launched the Galaxy Fold on Wednesday, foldable devices have become a hot topic at MWC Barcelona, the world’s largest phone show. Even TCL, a Chinese company best known for televisions, showed off its Dragon Hinge, which enables a family of foldable devices. Mate X vs Galaxy FoldHuawei’s one-upmanship at the press conference was clear from the get-go. Yu touted its 5G connection, which the Galaxy Fold doesn’t have. The company says its Balong 5000 modem is able to tap into theoretical peak speeds that are double what you can get from Qualcomm’s 5G modem, the X50. Qualcomm declined to comment on the claim. Yu also took a shot at the right notch on the inside larger display of the Galaxy Fold, noting that the Mate X gives you a full, “uninterrupted” screen. The Mate X embeds its cameras on the thicker right rail. The Mate X’s 8-inch display also tops the 7.3-inch screen on the Fold. The Galaxy Fold on display during a demo at the Samsung Unpacked event. CNET He also suggested that Samsung moved the launch of its foldable phone up because of Huawei’s Mate X. But the Mate X doesn’t launch until the middle of the year, and the Galaxy Fold comes out on April 26. Samsung wasn’t available to respond to Yu’s comment. The Mate X won’t be sold in the US because of the ongoing controversy. Yu said the carriers want to work with Huawei but can’t because of political hurdles. Elsewhere around the world, Huawei will still need to convince consumers that $2,600 isn’t too much for a phone. Yu acknowledged that the price was high and said it would take at least two years before the cost went down to the level of one of its more mainstream phones. But he stressed that the level of innovation that went into the Mate X justifies the price, as the company looks to cement its reputation as a pioneer. “Huawei has to change the conversation,” said Maribel Lopez, an analyst at Lopez Research. “Can they convince people they’re innovative? Sure, but it doesn’t really change the overall market dynamic for them.”This story originally ran at 9:28 a.m. PT. 20 35 Photos Share your voice May 13 • Galaxy S10E vs. iPhone XR: Every spec compared Comments Jun 1 • The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone See Alllast_img read more

It’s a trademarked brand name for an insulation board created by Dow Chemical. It’s also used casually to refer to those white cups designed to hold hot drinks as well as various types of protective packaging materials.WSU calls out styrofoam for creating pollution when it burns and for not being able to degrade naturally. The new plant-based material is made of up 75% cellulose nanocrystals from wood pulp with polyvinyl alcohol added to make a more elastic foam. The lightweight material can support up to 200 times its weight without deforming. bouncebackEnlarge ImageThe researchers demonstrated how the water-soaked foam can bounce back into shape after being pushed down. Video screenshot by CNET Others have developed plant-based foams. You’re probably familiar with biodegradable packing peanuts that dissolve in water. Previous foam efforts don’t have the insulation properties, strength and durability of the newly developed material.”Our results demonstrate the potential of renewable materials, such as nanocellulose, for high-performance thermal insulation materials that can contribute to energy savings, less usage of petroleum-based materials, and reduction of adverse environmental impacts,” said mechanical engineer Amir Ameli, a lead researcher on the project. The initial research is promising, but it’s still early days. You won’t find this stuff insulating your house or your coffee for a while. The scientists are now working on creating stronger and more durable versions of the material while investigating how to take it from the laboratory into the real world.  13 ancient mysteries unlocked by modern science This plant-based material could one day usurp styrofoam. WSI Styrofoam, despite being environmentally problematic, is everywhere because it works so well. It makes for a great coffee cup. It insulates buildings. It protects products during shipping. But it’s also made from petroleum, a finite resource. Researchers at Washington State University (WSU) announced on Thursday that they’ve developed a plant-based alternative material “that for the first time works better than Styrofoam for insulation.” The team published its work online this week in the journal Carbohydrate Polymers.  0center_img Sci-Tech 13 Photos See ya, Styrofoam: We test the Igloo Recool, a $10 biodegradable cooler Earth Day 2019: Go greener with these cool eco-friendly products Tags Green techlast_img read more

Andrew Hoyle/CNET The Ferrari 812 Superfast is one hell of a car. I mean, it’s called the freaking Superfast. The one thing that it’s missing, though, is the ability to hear that absolutely bananas V12 yowl without having the sound muffled by a roof — that is to say, it’s missing a Spider version.Though, that may not be the case for long. According to the website FerrariChat, several Ferrari owners have received invitations to see the unveiling of the new model in early September at one of two events. According to a separate report by Motor1 published on Wednesday, all of these invites have gone to European owners, so either there will be a separate series of events for US buyers, or we won’t get this thing stateside, though the latter seems unlikely.As far as official details on potential specs for a Spider-ized version of the 812 go, there basically aren’t any. Seriously, we’ve heard nothing from the folks in Maranello on this one. If we were to put on our thinking caps and hazard an educated guess, we’d expect to see a folding hardtop roof like the Portofino and/or 488 Spider have. We’d be shocked to see any kind of change in power output, given just how potent the standard 812 is already, thanks to its 6.5-liter V12 engine.In any case, we can’t be bothered with the idea of a convertible 812 because the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 already exist and those are — as far as we’re concerned — the coolest Ferraris to roll out of Maranello in decades.Oh, and we’re journalists, so we don’t have Ferrari 812 Superfast Spider money anyway.
