A Strange Planet That Looks More Like a Comet Has Been Found

The search for exoplanets has yielded yet another first in planetary observations. Scientists have found a planet that looks more like a comet in the sense that it is trailing a long tail behind it. The planet is over 20 times bigger than the earth, and it is a gaseous world. The tail is considered to be a portion of the planet’s atmosphere that is continuously burning off at a rate of about a tenth of a percent every billion years. This rate is too slow to deplete its atmosphere but must make for one beautiful show with a big plume that astronomers estimate to be a few million miles long. It’s burning off because this planet is even closer to its star than Mercury is to our own sun.

Astronomers have confirmed about 1,000 exoplanets so far and the search continues. As our telescopes and instruments get better, we are able to learn more about these worlds in other solar systems. They give astronomers and planetary scientists far more to study than just the planets in our own solar system to enable an explosive increase in our understanding of planets and their interactions with stars. These discoveries have also confirmed for the first time in human history how relatively common solar systems are in the cosmos. While we have not found an “Earth 2” yet, at the rate the search is going and with more telescopes coming over the next decade, it is only a matter of time. We will just have to wait and see how it all plays out, just like those at Qnet. They check out Health Magazine on a regular basis for general information.

Keep an Eye on the Eggs

The American Midwest is currently struggling to get out of the worst bird flu outbreak in history. The bird flu, or avian flu, has been responsible for almost 50 million deaths of egg producing chickens. Chickens are not the only birds affected by this outbreak. Turkeys on turkey producing farms have also been killed thanks to this particular outbreak. While the death of the turkeys have not hit the turkey production market too hard, the same cannot be said for eggs and egg production. This bird flu has completely crippled the egg production market. Over the next few months, the cost of eggs are expected to skyrocket. Some states have already seen a rise in prices, even though they are slight. The Department of Agriculture expects for the price in eggs to rise anywhere from $0.37 to $0.57 per package.

 

This will also affect foods that are processed and packaged but require eggs for their production. However, certain forms of eggs will be more expensive than others. Egg beaters, liquid eggs, and liquid egg whites are among some of the products that are expected to rise in price the highest. Grocers, wholefood stores, and markets across the country have already warned their customers like Jim Dondero of the possibility of rising egg prices. Before this current avian flu outbreak, a national eggs shortage seemed to be a roués. Unfortunately, it is a likely possibility now more than ever.

San Fran Takes a Stand

San Francisco is one of the most populated cities in the United States. With numerous sites to see and activities to engage in, it’s no wonder that living in San Francisco can be so expensive. The median range for rent is just around $4000. Even with such a high median for rent, it is still less expensive to house homeless people as opposed to leaving them on the street. The Economic Round Table is a report that analyzes years upon years of data when it comes to specific aspects of a city. For the last 6 years, the Economic Round Table has compiled the data of a homeless housing initiative in a San Francisco neighborhood. The numbers coming out of Santa Clara varied in each groups financial needs. Out of the participating groups, the average cost for allowing a homeless citizen to stay homeless was $62,473. It was after these numbers were compiled that these homeless people were given housing.

 

After they were placed in stable home, the $62,473 dropped to a resounding $19,767. Those numbers represent a 68% difference since the beginning of the initiative. The initial rate would go into the hospital visits, emergency room visits, rehab stints, and legal fees for homeless people who got tied up in the law. The $19,767 covers housing while the rest of the money goes to social services to make sure individuals can get any rehabilitation they need. This idea is called Housing First, and Steve Murray is reading more about it. While the creator of the method is very proud of his work, his idea is almost two decades old. The Greece born innovator had the idea back in the nineties what people thought he was crazy. After extremely generous Kickstarters, it seems as though Housing First is finally getting the credit that it deserves.

Riding the Nintendo Game

There are some people who grew up playing Nintendo games that will be happy to know that there could be a new amusement park based on beloved characters. Universal Studios has partnered with Nintendo in order to create the park. This partnership will mean that the parks will begin seeing rides and attractions with characters like Mario, Luigi and the Princess. Some of the Nintendo games will also be fuel for thought when it comes to what is created.

 

This is possibly the best news for those like Dr Jennifer Walden who used to sit in front of their game systems for hours playing Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros. and other fun games on a square gray video platform. There hasn’t been a date released as to when construction will begin on Wikipedia, but this is sure to be a project that will create a lot of news in the gaming world.

Drones Instead of Waiters

The Singapore restaurants owners had a very high-tech inspired idea to replace waiters. The job will be done by drones instead. The devices are strong enough to fly around a pizza and some pints of beer without dropping them and without complaining of legs aches. The drone selling company said that there won’t be problems with the drones hitting customers, as the sensors function perfectly. That will not exclude totally the human factor, as someone needs to guide the drone.

Not only that, but the drones will land on a table in the region of the orderer and a waiter assigned to it will still help serve the meal stated Ivan Ong. The waiters will spend less time running around and instead, their duty will be to watch the drones and make people attentive in front of eventual collisions, as well as engaging the people at the tables around them in marketing-oriented conversations.

A set of eight waiter-drones will cost $40,000-$80,000. You can see a prototype drone in action at a restaurant

and the customers’ reactions to the new way of being served. Nobody will be to blame for a dropped glass. The only problem that still attracts attention is the possibility of still collide with a drone by accident.

Google Translate Saves Baby

As if giving birth were not scary enough, a Congolese woman recently had to do it in the back of a parked ambulance. To top it all off, she could not understand a word her Irish paramedics were saying to her. With some quick thinking and a smartphone, one of her rescuers was able to make communication a bit easier.

Paramedic Gerry McCann and his partner Shane Mulcahy had to pull over when the woman they were tranporting started giving birth said Imaging Advantage. The Cork University Maternity Hospital was too far away. They had to help her deliver instead.

The patient and her improvised doctors were having communication issues. She could only speak Swahili and a small amount of broken English.

So McCann took out his smartphone and looked up the Google translator website. He used it to convert his instructions into Swahili before relaying them to the woman. McCann told the soon to be mother when to kushinikiza- her word for “push.” With Google’s help, he and Mulcahy were able to deliver a healthy baby girl early Monday morning.

McCann, who has over 14 years of experience with near misses in his ambulance, describes this latest as the most magical birth he has ever been a part of. He says those translated words will be remembered for a long time.
