Focus Description:

The magician warns the audience that he can do the opposite of what happens when putting out a fire, that is, he will water the tree so that it catches fire. The artist takes a vessel with water and pours it on the firewood laid out in the stove or fireplace: in a few minutes they light up.

Focus secret:

Pour fresh quicklime into the stove and put firewood on the sprinkled place, sprinkling each log with lime. Firewood must be completely dry from easily igniting wood, e.g. spruce, pine or birch and split into thin logs.

From below, as with ordinary masonry, it does not interfere with placing a few small chips, also sprinkled with lime. The heat developed from extinguishing the lime will ignite the firewood.

If the trick is performed in the fireplace, then first lay a small amount of firewood flat, sprinkling it with lime according to the previous one, then place the firewood on them vertically without pouring. Water the bottom ones. In the absence of fresh quicklime, ignite a piece of chalk in a hot oven or other high fire and store in a very dry and even hot place.

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 ... >>

2014 AMD A-Series APUs (Kaveri) 18.01.2014

AMD introduced the new A-series APUs for 2014. Previously known under the code name Kaveri, they are equipped with AMD Radeon R7 graphics processors. According to AMD, the new APUs "have a range of amazing benefits that will dramatically increase PC performance and make gaming even more immersive."

These include benefits such as up to 12 cores (4 CPUs and 8 GPUs) and a heterogeneous system architecture (HSA) that allows CPU and GPU cores to work in harmony, distributing tasks between relevant elements, resulting in increased performance. Kaveri also features DirectX 11.2 Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU architecture with Mantle API, AMD TrueAudio technology (32-channel surround sound for an ideal presence and immersion) and UltraHD (4K) support. It remains to be added that the new APUs are compatible with boards with an FM2+ processor socket.

Starting today, the AMD A10-7850K and AMD A10-7700K models are on sale. The AMD A8-7600 model will be on sale in the current quarter.

The AMD A10-7850K APU price is $173, AMD A10-7700K is $152, AMD A8-7600 is $119. The A10-7850K and A10-7700K models will ship with EA Battlefield 4.

All three models have quad-core CPUs and 4MB L10 cache, while the number of GPU cores is eight for the top model and six for the other two. The base frequency of the CPU in the case of AMD A7850-3,7K is 10 GHz, AMD A7700-3,4K - 8 and AMD A7600-3,3 - 3,1 / 4,0 GHz, the maximum Turbo Core frequency is 3,8 GHz, 3,8 .3,3 GHz and 95 / 95 GHz, and the TDP value is 65, 45 and 720/XNUMX W, respectively. GPU frequency - XNUMX MHz.
