For long haul, proponents say hydrogen-powered trucks have an advantage over electric rivals as they have a greater range and require less charging times but their uptake and mass production has been slow because they are expensive
However, a McKinsey study in January said that once relative efficiencies of the power sources and lifetime costs of a truck are factored in, green hydrogen could reach cost parity with diesel by 2030
PARITY WITH DIESEL ???
Hyundai has been partnering with Swiss companies to build a value chain covering the production of green hydrogen from hydropower, hydrogen charging stations and the service and maintenance of the trucks
The customers, which include supermarket chain Migros, will be leasing the trucks from Hyundai Hydrogen Mobility HHM to transport goods around the country, backed by the new hydrogen infrastructure
'Mario is probably impervious to extinction'
Nintendo has 100 years of experience in gaming.
'They are the masters in this field'
'As a platform holder, our job is to create a wider audience, continually.'
'I think Nintendo really understands the game design maxims for a handheld platform and then how to leverage their very powerful IP vault in that medium.'
It seems Fortnite and Roblox is additive to the industry and not exactly zero-sum vs AAA games?
Challenges are used by PoC to validate wireless coverage. As a Challenger, your Hotspot is chosen by the network to create a challenge, or encrypted multi-layer packet, over the Internet.
The challenge process begins with the Challenger selecting an initial target Hotspot, followed by a group of Hotspots known by the @helium blockchain to be within range of each other as a result of RF witnessing.
These Hotspots are given a multi-layer packet (think an “envelope of envelopes”) that only they can decrypt to prove they are providing legitimate wireless coverage.
The Challenger could be anywhere in the world and does not need to be co-located near other Hotspots. Challenge requests occur every 120 blocks, and if the consensus group accepts the challenge transaction as being valid, the challenge proceeds.
Plus let’s be honest here. Im a technical person and have flirted w getting into cyber for ages, but the things I love about mech engineer are not actually in cyber. I don’t want to do PEN tests for banks all my Life. Its not quite being in a workshop, or living on a rig -
There’s a bigger question here about what the point of all this is. Encouraging people to explore different jobs is great. But are we talking about quality of work / Life? Have we thought about whether these environments are welcoming or hostile? What energy are we putting into
Changing the structures of these industries? Do you know depressing it is going into work with people who think who you are isn’t of value? No amount of money is worth it for everyone
I’ve gone off on a tangent. But it’s taken me a long time (and I’m still working on it) to unlearn the ‘undervaluing’ of the arts that I grew up with, and stuff like this doesn’t help, and makes me sad. Because we should be better.
This year's report is a grim read.
The new report, spanning Jun 2019 to May 2020, tracks the steady (pre- and post-pandemic) march to a locked down internet robbed of its liberatory power and perverted in service to control, censorship and
Even before the pandemic, things were bad, but the pandemic accelerates everything: inequality, monopoly, and internet crackdowns. In the name of epidemiology, the world's governments have criminalized some online speech and then arrested journalists and activists.
These speech restrictions also created a simple pretense for national website blocking and site takedowns, used to remove "unfavorable health statistics, corruption allegations, and other Covid-19-related content."
The Chinese model of tech as an autocrat's dashboard and control panel is surging around the world, and exposure notification apps are a powerful accelerant for the model, with mandatory location tracking, call-record harvesting, even mandatory quarantine "selfie checkins."
i'll never forget my programming teacher who was like a senior dev at IBM and decided he was done writing missile guidance software— neal frights (@flakealso) October 10, 2020
when he was telling us this he said "i just woke up one morning and it struck me that i was a murderer. so i quit." https://t.co/Ygqqz0ljWU
Me: am I gonna build a space ship!?
Robotics fair: No bich! You live in georgia!! Now help us build these aerial bombers and military excavation robots! :))
Like both delta and Lockheed Martin are here and several large military bases so we actually got to visit delta hangers where they make the planes and I was like wow! Planes! And then later i found out airlines are big jerks and make stuff for the airforce.
I wish I would've known I could still probably build spaceships....but idk I was like 15 I didn't know shit. I was just like....I don't see any spaceships!???
I liked the commercial planes...planes are a lot here in Georgia theres a school for it and they have their own airport.
We went there it was cool. Its in the country tho because its a tiny airport for regional flights so the students learn how a control tower works. The control tower is super cool.
