Step Toward Liberating Electronic Devices From Their Power Cords

Slashdot - Wed, 2014-05-21 07:50
Science_afficionado (932920) writes "A new type of supercapacitor that can hold a charge when it takes a lickin' has been developed by engineers at Vanderbilt University. It is the first 'multi-functional' energy storage device that can operate while subject to realistic static and dynamic loads — advancing the day when everything from cell phones to electric vehicles will no longer need separate batteries. These devices could make it possible to design electrical devices that are not limited by plugs and external power sources."

relax 3.2.0

Freshmeat - Wed, 2014-05-21 07:21
relax is a program designed for the study of the dynamics of proteins and other macromolecules though the analysis of experimental NMR data. It supports exponential curve fitting for the calculation of the R1 and R2 relaxation rates, calculation of the NOE, reduced spectral density mapping, the Lipari and Szabo model-free analysis, study of domain motions via the N-state model (or ensemble analysis) and frame order dynamics theories using anisotropic NMR parameters such as RDCs and PCSs, the investigation of stereochemistry in dynamic ensembles, and the analysis of relaxation dispersion.

Release Notes: This major feature release includes the addition of the new "B14" and "B14 full" relaxation dispersion models (from Baldwin 2014), a complete rearrangement of the module layout of the specific analyses packages, a number of new user functions, documentation improvements (including the addition of a new chapter to the manual for the N-state model or ensemble analysis), and numerous of other features. This is also a major bugfix release, with numerous bug resolved. This includes an essential bugfix for the error calculation in the new relaxation dispersion analysis.

Witness the Birth of a Meteor Shower

Slashdot - Wed, 2014-05-21 07:12
StartsWithABang writes: "Here on Earth, we think of shooting stars and meteor showers as things that happen periodically; sometimes they're spectacular, sometimes they're rare. But in all cases, they're caused by comet debris, and they should flare up each time the Earth crosses the comet's path. But as it turns out, every meteor shower had a point in its past where it happened for the very first time. In all of human history, we've never recorded one that occurred for the very first time where none happened before. Well, for those of you who want to take the chance to be a part of it, this coming Friday night/Saturday morning, look for the Camelopardalids, making their Earthly debut this year!"

ski 6.8

Freshmeat - Wed, 2014-05-21 07:11
ski is a game in which you ski down an infinite slope, facing such hazards as trees, ice, bare ground, and the man-eating Yeti. Since you have put your jet-powered skis on backwards, you can't see ahead where you are going; only behind where you have been. However, you can turn to either side, jump or hop through the air, teleport through hyperspace, launch nuclear ICBMs, and cast spells to call the Fire Demon. And since the hazards occur in patches, you can skillfully outmaneuver them. A fun and very silly game that proves you don't need fancy graphical user interfaces to have a good time.

Release Notes: This release fixes a minor bug revealed by pychecker.
