7 Secrets of Pentagon

space 1. Feng Shui, or sacred place "in the dark dark forest was dark citadel ...". Perhaps years from two to three hundred and will start "scary story" about the powerful US military. However, the forest-no it was not. But it was a cemetery and the swamp ... Somewhere there was a stray thought in 1940 from the American administration - to place all US Department of Defense in the same building. And this is neither more nor less than 26 thousand employees spread out in 17 separate buildings in the District of Columbia. Moreover, according to the statement, in the future citadel were comfortably accommodate 40 thousand people at the same time! In Europe gathered momentum World War II, to which Americans can join at any time, but here is an idea! Illogical somehow comes out - all the key military commanders under one roof. Even top managers of Coca-Cola, who know the recipe of soda, do not fly on the same plane. Nevertheless, the architects immediately after the pr

world's first smartphone with a folding screen

South Korean company Samsung develops world's first smartphone with a folding screen, which will hit the market next year. With the latest technology, which made ​​it possible to create a flexible display, the Samsung is close to finalization unusual "clamshell".  Smartphone diagonal of 5 inches will be able to unpack half, turning the plate diagonal 8 inches.  In addition, recently the Koreans patented foldable smartphone, which is similar to the old school flip phone - except that the whole of the inside surface will be a touch screen.  Most likely, the new "clamshell" from Samsung will debut at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona ( Spain) in February 2017.  In the meantime, let us recall, as imagined by the developers of such smartphone

9 Simple things that are, in fact, very difficult

You may not thought that.. 1. The mathematical proof of the "1 + 1 = 2" 300 pages of the equation "1 + 1 = 2" perhaps the first mathematical task that we learn as addition and subtraction seem the simplest concepts in mathematics. If you have an apple and you are given one more apple, you have two apples it is. It seems that it is a simple equation that is clear to everyone from a young age. It's hard to believe, but the evidence of "1 + 1 = 2" represents the work of more than 300 pages, and it was not proven until the 20th century. At the beginning 20th-century mathematician Bertrand Russell decided to prove conclusively that the math works, and decided to start with the simple concepts that we know, proving "1 + 1 = 2". However, what seems a simple task, in fact, took mathematician and philosopher 372 pages of complex calculations. The decision was published in the three-volume work "Principia Mathematica" ( "Principles of M

10 Human evolution which are still in progress!

Historically, the birth process has limited the size of the brain, because the babies have to pass through the birth canal. Today, however, cesarean procedure bypasses this process. Pobiner notes that more than 46 percent of children born in China, are born through caesarean section. What happens with natural selection, taking into account developments in the field of fertility and improve post-natal medicine? The number is constantly growing population of the world, and the people themselves are actively developing. However, with an increase in sea level and decrease the amount of space available for housing, various diseases is much easier to spread.            The largest virus ever found was a virus that had existed under the permafrost, known as Pitovirus (Pithovirus). While this particular virus is not dangerous to humans, what happens if the "thaw" dangerous to human life parasite? For example, according to the World Health Organization smallpox virus was eradicated in

10 Mysterious phenomena of the brain

The reason - a thing mysterious and changeable, but what would we be without him?  Nevertheless, logic leads us sometimes, and eye contact play dirty tricks. The brain is difficult to learn, and this applies not only to general scientific advances, but also strange psychic phenomena. For example, everyone is familiar with deja vu, but the brain every day throws us other phenomena, which we sometimes do not even notice 1. How does the "brainwashing"? "Brainwashing" completely changes the way or what a person thinks. Sometimes this technique is used not for good purposes - for example, prisoners of war, abductees and other people who are in a position of subordination. But this is, in fact, already an extreme form of "brainwashing." In the first place, "brainwashing" - is the destruction of all, in that the victim believes. It is necessary to start with a clean slate, to print new thoughts, ideas and values. This strange combination of

How can they steal your data from an ATM

But even we have become a kind of skimmers urban horror story. And few people think that these devices using high-tech components, too, evolve over time. And because of special interest is the recently published material, which clearly presents the stages of "modernization" skimmers, up to the latest developments of modern criminal craftsmen. Skimming is a method of stealing certain information necessary for the implementation of the transaction from your bank account to steal money. Speaking in a simple to remove the money via ATM with your credit card account, the fraudsters need to know your PIN-code and read data from the magnetic strip. And for this purpose, a variety of device designs and o

Clothing Spray

Spanish designer Manel Torres has invented the world's first clothes-spray, which can be removed after application, wash and wear again. The spray consists of special fibers mixed with resins to impart strength and elasticity of the product.

Scientists control another man's brain via Internet

Scientists, including one of Indian-origin, have conducted the world's first non-invasive human-to-human brain interface in which one person was able to control the motions of another person via Internet.     Using electrical brain recordings and a form of magnetic stimulation, Rajesh Rao, a University of Washington professor, sent a brain signal to his colleague Andrea Stocco, causing Stocco's finger to move on a keyboard.     While researchers at Duke University have demonstrated brain-to-brain communication between two rats, and Harvard researchers have demonstrated it between a human and a rat, Rao and Stocco believe this is the first demonstration of human-to-human brain interfacing.     "The Internet was a way to connect computers, and now it can be a way to connect brains. We want to take the knowledge of a brain and transmit it directly from brain to brain," Stocco, a research assistant professor in psychology at the UW's Institute for Learning & Bra

Man plays guitar for 6 hours during brain surgery

A US man found a novel way to help doctors perform a complex brain surgery on him - by playing his guitar! Actor-musician Brad Carter strummed his one-of-a-kind handmade guitar for six hours as doctors operated on him. Although Carter had to put down the guitar when he began experiencing debilitating hand tremors - his strumming skills came to good use when doctors implanted a wire inside his head, a daily reported. He used his tunes to guide surgeons through his brain as they implanted a pacemaker to ease the hand tremors that had plagued him for the better part of a decade. Carter's fancy fretwork helped his surgeons locate the best spot for a deep brain stimulation procedure that they hope will ease tremors in his hands that have kept him from his life's passion. "I've been a guitarist since 1988. Music is my first love. I'm an actor for a living, but I always have music to turn to. It's a part of your soul," Carter, an actor and musician in Los Angeles

charge cell phone through human pee!

developed an out of the box method to charge mobile phones by human urine. Yes, you read it right! Scientists working at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory have discovered the ‘ground-breaking’ technology of charging cell phones by using urine as the source of power, to generate electricity.     "We are very excited as this is the world’s first, no-one has harnessed power from urine to do this, so it's an exciting discovery. Using the ultimate waste product as a source of power to produce electricity is about as eco as it gets," Ioannis Ieropoulos from University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, an expert in harnessing power from unusual sources using microbial fuel cells, said.     "One product that we can be sure of, an unending supply is our own urine. By harnessing this power, as urine passes through a cascade of microbial fuel cells (MFCs), we have managed to charge a mobile phone. The beauty of this fuel source is that we are not relying on the erratic natur

Toddler buys car using dad's smartphone!

A one-year-old girl in US bought a car through online trading while playing on the mobile phone of her dad. Paul Stoute from Portland, Oregon, said he got a notice from eBay congratulating him on his purchase of USD 225. He was the proud owner of a 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite. To Stoute's astonishment, he had not made the purchase. After verifying the purchase, he realized that his young daughter, who really enjoys playing with his smartphone, had logged into the eBay app which can be used to instantly make a purchase. "Tap, tap, tap and now I own a car," Stoute was quoted by a news channel as saying. Stoute had been looking at cars on eBay with the idea of tackling a rebuilding project with a friend. "Fortunately, she didn't buy the USD 38,000 Porsche," he said. Also fortunate is that the Sprite was located in Tualatin. It's now being stored in Milwaukie and is very much a fixer-upper. The eBay ad listed it as a ‘Frankensprite’. "It comes with two en

The all new Quantum batteries

Developers Company Micronics Japan Co. Ltd. called developed their battery "quantum", emphasizing his physical, rather than chemical nature. A single cell has already been demonstrated by developers, it is a film of the metal-oxide-semiconductor structure of n-type, which uses particles of titanium dioxide, tin dioxide and oxide zinc coated with an insulating film. In the role of the latter may act as organic and inorganic insulators. Instead of using the ion energy storage (as in the battery of your phone), layered "quantum battery" exploits electrons, only not as capacitors. It is alleged that the system is based on the storage of electrons "in the forbidden zone" of the semiconductor. In the production of the structures, "metal - oxide - semiconductor" charge layer drive is irradiated with ultraviolet unnamed parameters.                                  After production, when charging, which can be made ​​from any source, including penlight ba
