If you thought your home-brew project was taking a long time, [Jeroen Brinkman]’s MERCIA Relay Computer project probably has you beat. He began working on this impressive computer back in 2014, and has been at it ever since.  In fact, the ongoing nature of the project is embedded into the name itself — the English translation of the acronym MERCIA is “My Simple Relay Computer Under Construction”.  Being interested in old analog and relay computers from an early age, [Jeroen] took on this project to educate students about how computers work.  The entire computer is build only using relays, diodes, and capacitors, not to mention color-coded wire based on signal functions. Using relays as the primary...

Human spaceflight has always been, and still remains, a risky endeavor. We mitigate risk by being as prepared as we can. Every activity is planned, reviewed, and practiced long before any rocket engines are ignited. But space has a history of not cooperating with plans, and thus there is a corresponding history of hacks to get missions back on track. YouTube space fan [Scott Manley] recaps some of his favorites in How a $2 Toothbrush Saved the ISS and Other Unbelievable Space Hacks.
The introduction explained this compilation was motivated by the latest International Space Station drama, where an elusive air leak has finally been tracked down. Air leaks are obviously much more worrying in a space station than...

Samsung Samsung would like you to believe its new 85-inch Interactive Display can bridge the gap between students in the classroom and students studying at home, now that blended-learning is the new normal across the country. In reality, it’s just a slightly bigger digital whiteboard — but assuming it doesn’t cost too much, the tweaked vision does sound intriguing.
Now that COVID-19 has swept the country, some students are huddling around tiny Chromebook screens at home while others stay in class, and Samsung’s internet-connected digital whiteboard promises to let students and teachers collaborate with each other, whether they’re in that classroom drawing on the board or adding to it in real-time...

Nosebleeds are usually pretty common and nothing to seriously worry about – except when they are. For example, in Sophie Clayton's case, her nosebleed led to memory loss. Sophie Clayton had a pretty good life. She had just finished
school and already had a job lined up, and lived with her parents, who she was
close to. Sophie even worked with her family. She was employed as a dispatcher at the same ambulance service station as her mother Julie. She worked long, hard hours but never complained. She loved her job, and knew her work was very important and meaningful. In an instant, everything changed One November day, Sophie was standing in the kitchen with her parents.

The end of OSIRIS-REx’s sample collector, showing asteroid sample leaking out into space | Image: NASA NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft did its job a little too well on Tuesday, when it tried to scoop up a handful of rocks from an asteroid named Bennu more than 200 million miles from Earth. The vehicle actually grabbed too much material with its robotic arm, jamming the lid at the end of the arm open — and letting part of the asteroid sample escape out into space.
“We were almost a victim of our own success here,” said Dante Lauretta, the principal investigator for the OSIRIS-REx mission at the University of Arizona, in a press conference.

Making ends meet is nearly impossible without a job. Even those with jobs can find themselves struggling to make ends meet as cheques are delayed, or altogether missing. Bruno Rafael Paiva found himself in a tough spot. He worked as a substitute teacher at a Brazillan high school and had been filling in for someone on maternity leave. Due to some issues with paperwork, his name had not been added to the school’s payroll. As a result, he did not receive any salary for the two and a half months he worked there. Soon, he was broke and had to resort to living and sleeping at school. When his students found out, they decided to help When Bruno's students discovered the reality of his condition, they decided to to...

These days, the 1993 Disney movie Hocus Pocus is beloved by many as a Halloween cult classic. But the film, starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as three witches who come back from the dead, only started enchanting viewers after experiencing its own kind of resurrection.The year of its release, Hocus Pocus made a disappointing $40 million at the box office. It was also derided by critics. Roger Ebert gave it one star, while the New York Times’ Janet Maslin called it “an unholy mess.”But over time, the movie began to cast a spell on audiences. It made over $800,000 in DVD sales in 2009, peaking at number 18 in the sales rankings during the holiday season. Still, it languished...

Plants are great to have around, but they all have different watering needs. If only they could cry out when they’re thirsty, right? Well, now they can. All you need to hear them suffer is your very own Klausner Machine. [RoniBandini] based the Klausner machine on one of Roald Dahl’s short stories, which features an inventor who builds a machine that can make audible the sound of plants shrieking whenever they’re cut.
In [RoniBandini]’s version of the Klausner Machine, the point is to judge the plant’s feelings based on its soil moisture content. An Arduino Nano reads in from the soil moisture sensor, and if the soil is dry, the plant screams. If the soil is moist, the plant emits happy sounds from...

A new automated system for the collection had been scheduled to go operational on Oct. 15.But the move sparked widespread outrage, especially online with the hashtag #EndPhoneTax, in a country where manifestation of dissent can easily spiral into violence. The pressure was enough to push the government to halt the tax collection system which would have undoubtedly shifted the burden of payment from the importer to the end user.It is important to note the customs duties and taxes on phones, which stand at 33% of their...

In 2018, US broadcaster DISH Network sued pirate IPTV service SET TV for offering many TV channels illegally obtained from DISH’s satellite service.
That lawsuit came to an end in 2018 when SET TV’s operators were ordered by a Florida court to pay $90 million in statutory damages. However, as far as DISH was concerned, there were more loose ends to tie up.
DISH Sues Simply-TV and Goes After a Reseller
Early 2019, DISH filed another lawsuit in Florida, this time targeting individuals and companies behind Simply-TV, a pirate IPTV service that was believed to be connected to SET TV. By August that same year, the lawsuit was over after DISH was awarded $30 million in statutory damages plus an injunction.

Róisín Murphy “Incapable”
The character in “Incapable” is reckoning with her life and asking herself if she’s incapable of love, and while she seems proud to have never had a broken heart it’s also clear she’s beginning to realize that being so protective of herself has cheated her of bigger, deeper feelings and connections to other people. The music plays out like a slow epiphany with Richard Barratt’s keyboard grooves starting off with a hesitant orbit around the beat, but gradually growing more urgent and the track gets more dense with sounds. It’s a brilliant concept for an icy disco number – it seems like the perfect setting for this type of person, and the momentum of it suggests...

France has been fighting on the anti-piracy enforcement frontline for more than a decade now.
The country was the first to introduce a graduated response system, Hadopi, where Internet subscribers risked losing their Internet connections if they were caught sharing torrents repeatedly.
This elaborate anti-piracy scheme provided a great opportunity for researchers to study the effects on legal consumption. Over the years, many papers have been published, documenting both positive and negative effects. Recently, a new study was added to the mix that looks at the effect of the three-strikes law on movie theater visits. The researchers specifically examine the effects of Hadopi’s early period. That’s years ago...
