Focus Description:

Put the salt shaker on the table. Announce that you will now lift it using only the gravity of your hand. Slowly bring your palm to the salt shaker and just as slowly lift the salt shaker, barely touching it with your fingertips.

Focus secret:

The secret of the trick is in a toothpick hidden under the ring. Before demonstrating the trick, put the ring on the ring finger and slip a toothpick under the ring on the inside of the finger. Lowering your palm with your fingers down to the salt shaker on the table, firmly insert the toothpick hidden under the ring into one of the holes in the lid.

The back of the hand should face the audience. If the toothpick is inserted firmly enough into the hole, it will support the weight of the salt shaker.

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Electron spin for quantum information transfer 18.05.2024

The transfer of quantum information remains one of the key tasks of modern science. Recent advances in the use of electron spin to expand the capabilities of information transfer in quantum systems have become very important. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing the frontiers of quantum information science by experimenting with the possibilities of electron spin. Electron spin, a natural quantum bit, is a potentially powerful means for storing and transmitting information in quantum systems. Magnon wave packets, collective excitations of electron spin, have revealed their potential to transmit quantum information over significant distances. The work of Berkeley Lab researchers has revolutionized the way such excitations propagate in antiferromagnets, opening up new prospects for quantum technologies. Using pairs of laser pulses, scientists disrupted antiferromagnetic order in one place and simultaneously studied it in another, creating ... >>

Sound-absorbing silk 17.05.2024

In a world where noise is becoming increasingly intrusive, the emergence of innovative materials that can reduce its impact is of great interest. MIT researchers have unveiled a new sound-absorbing silk fabric that promises to revolutionize quiet spaces. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made significant breakthroughs in the field of sound absorption. Researchers have developed a special silk fabric that can effectively absorb sound and create cozy, quiet environments. The fabric, thinner than a human hair, contains a unique vibrating fiber that is activated when voltage is applied to it. This feature allows the fabric to be used to suppress sound waves in two different ways. The first method uses fabric vibrations to generate sound waves that cover and cancel out unwanted noise, similar to noise-canceling headphones. This p ... >>

Google introduced its own tablet 02.07.2012

As part of the opening of the Google I / O conference in San Francisco, Google, as expected, introduced its first branded tablet computer. The device is called Nexus 7. Google's first branded tablet - Nexus 7 with a 7-inch screen - will go on sale in several countries in mid-July. It will cost $199 for the 8GB model and $249 for the 16GB model.

The tablet is equipped with a 7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels (216 ppi), covered with Corning glass, a 4-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor (with a 12-core GeForce graphics controller), 1 GB of RAM, a front camera on 1,2 MP, support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth and NFC, Micro USB connector, microphone, accelerometer, electronic compass, gyroscope and GPS module. Support for 3G or 4G is not provided.

The device is based on the Android 4.1 platform, codenamed Jelly Bean. The weight of the tablet is 340 g, overall dimensions - 198,5 x 120 x 10,45 mm. Battery capacity - 4325 mAh, which provides, according to the information provided, up to 9 hours of HD video playback or up to 300 hours of standby time.

According to Google, the Nexus 7 tablet was designed to work with the Google Play content store, which, in addition to 600 applications and games, currently includes millions of e-books and songs and thousands of movies and TV shows. From now on, films can not only be rented, but also bought, the company added.

The tablet will ship with Gmail, Chrome, Google+ and YouTube apps pre-installed. Automatic synchronization between tablet, smartphone and personal computer will be supported. Chrome will be the default browser on the Nexus 7, SlashGear notes. Support for Adobe Flash is not provided.
