Why was the 1956 Summer Olympics held not only in Melbourne, but also in Stockholm?

Melbourne, which hosted the 1956 Summer Olympics, could not host all sports. Due to Australian quarantine regulations, it was not possible to bring horses there, so equestrian competitions were held in parallel with the main games in Stockholm.

What causes goose bumps?

When hypothermia closes the pores of the skin, the skin tightens. In this case, the heat transfer of the skin decreases. The contraction of the skin is carried out by very small muscles, while the skin becomes rough, like a goose.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Semi-rugged laptop Panasonic Toughbook CF-54 20.02.2015

Panasonic has introduced a new semi-rugged laptop Toughbook CF-54. The model was developed specifically for the automotive industry, including for diagnostics, repair and after-sales service of vehicles.

The CF-54 is the thinnest and lightest semi-rugged Toughbook. Its key features include a modular system and a host of additional features that allow users to configure the device to suit their work needs, the company said. The 5th generation i5300-3U vPro processor (2,3MB cache, 2,9GHz to 7GHz with Turbo Boost technology) delivers optimized performance and graphics, as well as reduced power consumption. If necessary, the client can order a model with an even more powerful Core i54 vPro processor. The CF-8.1 is running Windows 7 Pro Update, but due to downgrade rights, the customer can get a Windows XNUMX Professional device.

The 14-inch display provides high-definition and detailed images. HD (1366/768), Full HD (1920/1080) or Full HD capacitive multi-touch configurations are available on request. Optionally, the laptop can be equipped with an AMD FirePro M5100 discrete graphics card for even higher image quality.

"Slim design and extensive customization options combined with durability make the CF-54 a new standard in mobile technology. It will be especially sought after by automotive, field service, utility and telecom workers," said Jan Kämpfer, director of marketing at Panasonic Computer Product Solutions.

According to the company, the Toughbook CF-54 is highly durable and can withstand drops from a height of up to 76 cm. The magnesium alloy case, moisture-resistant screen and keyboard, and a hard-framed lid provide the laptop with adequate protection from external influences. For ease of transportation, a special handle is built into the case, on which the company logo can be engraved.

Another important aspect is the duration of the laptop without recharging. One battery installed in the CF-54 lasts up to 11 hours. The hot-swap option allows you to change the battery without turning off the laptop, and adding an additional battery increases the operating time to 18 hours.

The presence of various types of connection in a laptop is of particular importance to mobile workers, Panasonic said. Thus, the Toughbook CF-54 has a wide range of interfaces, including standard LAN, VGA and HDMI ports for video projectors, printers and screens, True Serial port for connecting to legacy systems, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports and an SD card slot. Wireless LAN adapter compatible with "a", "b", "g", "n", "ac" standards and supporting data transfer rate up to 866 Mbps, and Bluetooth v4.0 provide fast file transfer. The portable computer comes with an adapter for charging from the car's on-board network or a mount on the dashboard. The 4G LTE module, Dual Pass antenna, contactless smart card reader and fingerprint reader are optionally available (only a contactless smart card reader or only a fingerprint reader can be installed, the company explained).

Thanks to its modular design, the CF-54 offers a wide range of configurations compared to other Panasonic semi-rugged devices. At the request of the client, the laptop can be equipped with a DVD drive, an additional battery, a PC card slot, a USB port or a smart card reader. The additional configuration port can be used for a second LAN adapter, a secure USB port, a GPS receiver, or a fourth USB 2.0 port.

The HD display model comes with a 500 GB hard drive, the Full HD model (with and without touchscreen) has a 128 GB SSD. An optional 2 megapixel webcam ensures video communication in any environment. A backlit keyboard is provided for working in the dark.
