Focus Description:

The magician puts the candle on the table and lights it. With the words: "I can extinguish a candle with a glance!" moves away a considerable distance, closes his eyes for a moment, as if transmitting energy. After a few moments, the candle will go out on its own.

Focus secret:

Candle real, paraffin. It goes out because of the silicate glue, a few drops of which are pre-applied into a tiny hole on its surface, at the very base of the centimeter wick. The length of the wick makes it possible to calmly move away from the candle and give the appropriate command from there.

To lengthen the wick to the desired size, use a knife to cut off excess paraffin from the top of the candle.

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 ... >>

AMD drops K6-III 26.02.2000

Having released only two models of K6-III microprocessors at frequencies of 400 and 450 MHz, AMD refused to continue developing microprocessors of this line. The latter were considered analogues of Intel's Pentium III.

In the first quarter of 2000, a new, similar line of sixth-generation K6-2+ microprocessors is released, starting with the 500 MHz model.
