Artifical leaf promises new form of sustainable energy

first_imgSustainable energy has taken many forms over the years including solar, wind, water and geothermal heat. A new form of energy generation mimics a process called photosynthesis in which plants convert sunlight and water into energy. Dr. Daniel Nocera of MIT and his research team announced at the 241st National Meeting of the American Chemical Society that they have developed the first practical “artificial leaf” which is 10 times more efficient than a natural leaf when it comes to photosynthesis.Nocera says the leaf shows promise as an inexpensive source of electricity for developing countries. To be fair, his team isn’t the first to produce an “artificial leaf.” The first one was produced by John Turner of the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado over a decade ago, but it had no chance for widespread use. That’s because it was unstable, only had a lifespan of one day, and was made up of rare and expensive metals.Nocera’s leaf on the other hand consists of inexpensive, widely available materials with improved stability. In fact, he has already shown that it is capable of producing energy for 45 hours without a drop in activity. The breakthrough seems to have come from Nocera’s discovery of inexpensive catalysts made of nickel and cobalt. The catalysts help to split water into its hydrogen and oxygen components when placed in a gallon of water in bright sunlight. The gases are stored in fuel cells which are used to produce enough electricity to power a house in a developing country for one day.While Nocera’s leaf is already 10 times more efficient than a natural leaf, he still believes he can boost the efficiency of the “artificial leaf” higher making it even more likely that the process that powers nature, photosynthesis, will also power a future world.Read more at the American Chemical Society press releaselast_img read more

Des excréments de tigre pour protéger les cultures

first_imgDes excréments de tigre pour protéger les cultures Après plusieurs années d’études très poussées, des scientifiques australiens ont attesté que les excréments de tigre étaient très efficaces pour éloigner les animaux qui se nourrissent des cultures humaines.  Le professeur Peter Murray et son équipe de l’université australienne du Queensland ont cherché à éloigner les chèvres et les kangourous des terres agricoles sans les tuer. En imaginant que les animaux fuiraient s’ils sentaient la présence d’un prédateur, ils ont patiemment collecté, pendant huit ans, différents types d’excréments dans les zoos.  À lire aussiCet homme a fabriqué un Jurassic Park miniature pour sa tortueLes recherches ont ainsi démontré que les déjections de tigres étaient le plus efficace pour faire fuir les herbivores. Le professeur Murray a indiqué à l’AFP que les chèvres y étaient particulièrement sensibles. Il semblerait que le fait que le tigre ait été nourri de chèvres auparavant n’y soit pas étranger.  Devant des résultats aussi encourageants, les scientifiques espèrent pouvoir obtenir rapidement des financements permettant de mettre au point des matières fécales de tigre synthétiques afin de pouvoir protéger les cultures humaines.Le 12 mars 2011 à 14:59 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Vancouver crime lab on the cusp of expansion

first_imgA movement to clear the state’s backlog of rape kits may soon be centered in Clark County if lawmakers approve a bill to staff a new, high-throughput DNA testing lab at the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab in Vancouver.“The testing will be done here,” said crime lab manager Bruce Siggins, motioning his hands to direct visitors’ eyes around a large empty room on the second floor of the building on Kauffman Avenue. “The renovations will be ready when we get the (scientists), so they can hit the ground running.”State House lawmakers voted unanimously Wednesday to pass House Bill 1166, which is aimed at addressing a backlog of more than 10,000 sexual assault kits collected by law enforcement statewide.(Trooper Capt. Monica Alexander, who is petitioning for the bill’s passage, clarified that various totals for the state’s untested rape kits reported by the media are a result of how the amount is calculated. Kits are at various stages of testing, and not all are counted by various agencies. About 8,000 to more than 10,000 kits have been reported.)The bill now moves to the Senate for consideration. Despite the current viability of the bill, Alexander said the House Appropriations Committee did not fund the legislation.last_img read more

Back From The Dead

first_imgThe duo had become adept at repositionings, having done the same thing with Maine Home & Design which had been struggling financially after producing only two issues when they acquired it in 2006. “When we were publishing Maine Home & Design we were getting pulled into a lifestyle approach. There was a vacuum in Maine for that kind of coverage,” says Thomas. “Then Port City Life became available.”With the acquisition of Port City Life, the lifestyle model being incubated in Maine Home & Design was given full treatment. But despite the high production quality, Thomas and Kelley are playing a nuanced numbers game. When they acquired the magazine, circulation was 21,000, distributed at about 140 newsstands. Now, the magazine is up to 30,000 circ. and available on about 1,000 newsstands—a level the team is comfortable with. “We don’t believe in big circulation, that’s not appealing to us,” says Thomas. “We want to do a great job with 30,000 to 40,000 readers. It helps us stay focused on a quality product.”So far the costlier production model, tempered with prudent circ. growth, has paid off. Ad pages and revenue have each grown 15 percent, says Thomas.Electronic Gaming MonthlyTightening Print and Digital IntegrationIn early 2009, Ziff Davis Media shuttered Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) as part of the company’s bid to become a digital-only operation and focus on its PCMagazine brand platform. Five months later, Steve Harris, who originally founded EGM, acquired the brand’s assets. After pushing EGM’s relaunch date from December to March due to last-minute tweaking to EGM’s digital counterpart EGMi, Harris has presented a title that simultaneously relies on its previous strengths while attempting to leverage a tighter digital integration with print.EGMi, a weekly digital companion edition to EGM, includes print content as well as original and multimedia content only available in the digital version. Subscribers can choose between a 12-issue print subscription and 52 digital issues for $24.99 or six print issues and 26 digital issues for $14.99. Newsstand editions include a special code that can “upgrade” reader access to the digital version, which is currently distributed to 500,000 readers.Outside of a redesign so that the Web site, digital edition and print magazine all share common elements, much of EGM remains in place, says Harris. “We’re not going in and changing things simply to change them, though we are devoting more attention to how the print product can integrate with our new digital platform and how the two media can compliment each other.”The new EGM was marketed heavily through the brand’s Twitter and Facebook accounts, says Harris. Now, however, he is using the print/digital integration to maximize value. “You’re going to see the integration between digital and print and the way our premium version of EGMi (which features video, programming, and exclusive downloads you can only get if you purchase the print magazine) will become more robust and ultimately incentivize readers to purchase the magazine in a way that is more effective than just lowering the cover price or discounting the subscription.”Harris says there is still potential for the brand to flirt with mass-market distribution. “It was a category leader for much of its run, yet I don’t believe it ever broke 700,000 circ. We’re focusing on additional efforts on digital where, frankly, I’m confident we’ll reach a seven-figure readership.”East West MagazineA relaunch that didn’t quite make it, and lessons learned.Anita Malik founded and launched East West first as an online-only brand, then a bimonthly magazine targeting Asian Americans that focused on the intersection of Eastern and Western cultures, in 2003. By April 2008 the title ran out of money and shut down. “It is the tale of a small, bare bones company that has grown too fast,” Malik wrote in a letter posted on the magazine’s Web site at the time. “Our resources have been taxed and this labor of love has become larger than our small staff.”Just over a year later, Malik secured between $150,000 and $200,000 in new investment capital and relaunched the brand. Malik credited her small staff and low overhead as an operational advantage, but, as she soon learned, she wasn’t prepared for just how bad the marketing landscape had become. And, she now admits, relaunching a magazine is not simply picking up where you left off.Malik entered into the relaunch thinking her market had benefited from an advertising renaissance. “The environment had changed, I thought for the better,” she says. “People were just starting to embrace multicultural marketing and were starting to put aside budgets for that. But now, that’s the last thing on their minds.” Nevertheless, in June 2009 Malik was riding a wave of enthusiasm for the relaunch. “For us it was about focusing on how the market is underserved and how we were the one magazine. We restructured, we were back and we refocused on the edit.”Malik quickly learned that her previously core markets, like the auto industry, had simply evaporated and found herself back at square one with her advertising base. “I had to restructure who we were even targeting,” she says. “They might have heard of us, but not at the same level as the former advertisers.”At the same time, Malik was running a “cautious” business plan that focused on cutting costs out of production. Meanwhile, she batted down counsel to “go Web-only” and add in other revenue-generating schemes like a dating site. “The audience doesn’t want that,” says Malik. “I know everybody thinks you need that, but for me it didn’t work for what our product was about.”Yet with the cautious pace and a suddenly unresponsive advertising base, Malik quickly realized her comeback was getting severely pinched. Things were happening too slowly. The relaunch investment, she figured, could last her about three issues. “We could do three issues and not make a dime and be OK,” she says. “I felt that three issues in and we’d be fine. We didn’t need a year.”Yet the hurdles were stacking up. Malik couldn’t get the magazine back into all the bookstores it had been in—which was at least a couple stores in every state.While between 40 and 60 percent of the magazine’s original circulation came back into the fold, Malik got two issues deep into her relaunch and pulled the plug. “Everything came more gradually. I wanted to step back into where we left off and you can’t do that. Maybe with a bigger staff that’s possible. There’s so much out there for readers. They may say they miss you, but you don’t know what that means until you come back and see whether they’ll put their dollars there.” Reintroducing a magazine, whether after a closure or relaunching under a new brand and editorial direction, is a tall order these days. Advertising expenditures are still in flux and cost control is the name of the game—a tough formula for a startup environment for magazines. Yet it’s often the case that a brand can not only survive under a new corporate structure, but thrive. Those that don’t have lessons to share, too. Here, we talk with three publishers who have been down the relaunch road before—two of whom are currently growing recently acquired brands and one who brought her magazine back from the dead once, only to finally shutter it for good.Maine MagazineReinvesting in Editorial, Materials and DistributionBy the time Kevin Thomas, publisher of regional magazine Maine Home & Design, acquired Port City Life in early 2009, the magazine had already begun cutbacks, dropping from a 10-time frequency to bimonthly. Nevertheless, Thomas, along with partner and editor-in-chief Susan Grisanti Kelley, saw an opportunity to plow capital back into the magazine—expanding its editorial coverage from the Portland region to statewide, restoring its frequency and dramatically boosting its distribution and production quality. Maine emerged from a relaunch five months after it was acquired.“We wanted to produce a quality publication,” says Thomas. “A lot of our competitors were changing trim sizes and going with cheaper stock. We went with the opposite approach.”last_img read more

Huawei Mate 30 Pro in testing launching September or October

first_img Post a comment $534 40 Photos The P30 Pro has inherited a similar quad-camera setup and is powered by the same Kirin 980 processor featured in the Mate 20 Pro. No word on how many cameras the Mate 30 will rock — presumably at least four — but it’ll surely pack a more robust CPU. The P30 Pro was one of two phones announced Tuesday in Paris, alongside the P30. The Pro has a 6.47-inch display while the P30 has a 6.1-inch display and three, rather than four, rear cameras. Both run EMUI 9.1, Huawei’s take on Android’s Pie operating system and pack in-screen fingerprint sensors. The P30 Pro’s four cameras the real stars of the show. You get a 20-megapixel super wide-angle lens and a regular 40-megapixel lens. Then there’s the big one: a weird-looking square lens that uses a prism-based periscope system to achieve a huge zoom. It offers not only a 5x optical zoom but also a 10x hybrid zoom without much loss in overall quality. The final lens is a time-of-flight sensor that gives depth data to the camera to allegedly achieve better bokeh (background blur) in an image. Meanwhile, the regular P30 has the same 40-megapixel shooter but combines it with a 16-megapixel super wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. Both models have 32-megapixel selfie shooters. Mentioned Above Huawei P30 (128GB, black) It was just days ago that Huawei unveiled its new P30 line of phones in Paris, but the bustling tech giant is already looking forward to September. That’s around the time its next flagship phone, the Mate 30, will launch, an executive said in Malaysia on Wednesday.The Mate 30 is currently being tested in Huawei’s labs, Huawei Product Manager Bruce Lee told reporters at a P30 event in Malaysia. “Now is March and the Mate 30 will be launched in September or October,” he said to press through a translator.That release schedule would match up with previous years.Huawei usually releases a slick, camera-centric P device in April and follows it with an improved, more robust Mate device towards the end of the year. Last year saw the P30 Pro introduce a triple-camera setup only for it to be topped with October’s Mate 20 Pro, which featured a more powerful processor and a quad-camera setup. Samsung follows a similar schedule with its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines.  Share your voice CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Meet Utqiaġviks Arctic Youth Ambassador Eben Hopson

(Ravenna Koenig/Alaska’s Energy Desk).A new cohort of Alaskan teens started as Arctic Youth Ambassadors this past fall. Among other things, the program provides an opportunity for young people across the state to represent the concerns of their communities on an international level.Listen nowOne of those ambassadors is Eben Hopson, a 17-year-old in Utqiaġvik who’s worried about how changes in the environment are already transforming his hometown.It’s five o’clock on a school night and Eben Hopson is standing in the lobby of the Iñupiat Heritage Center pointing to a huge photo in the middle of the room.“Here’s a 360-degree wide shot of the spring whaling festival called Nalukataq,” Hopson said. “What they do is they distribute every part of the whale. Here’s my sister Jessica right there, my brother Jonathan, and me.”This is not the only piece in the museum that Hopson has a personal connection to. An intricate baleen ship that Hopson’s father made sits in a glass case just behind us. And a few steps further into the lobby is the expansive wooden desk that belonged to his grandfather — Eben Hopson Sr., the hugely influential first Mayor of the North Slope Borough.An exhibit in the Iñupiat Heritage Center dedicated to the first mayor of the North Slope Borough, Eben Hopson Sr. (Ravenna Koenig/Alaska’s Energy Desk)“I feel like me carrying his name is a big deal for me because he did things for our people during his time. And I feel I need to do something for our people during this time,” Hopson said.When Hopson thinks about the future of the North Slope, the thing that weighs most heavily on his mind is climate change. Like many places in Alaska, Utqiaġvik is experiencing coastal erosion, and Hopson says he worries that by the time he’s 50, they might have to move the town.Last year Hopson actually made a short movie about climate change that he shared online — featuring interviews that he did with town residents, including the city mayor.Eben Hopson, livestreaming one of the high school basketball games in Utqiaġvik in January, 2018.(Ravenna Koenig/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Hopson loves photography and video; part of his current after-school job is filming the high school basketball games for the coaches and the community. He says that in the future he’d also like to make movies about whaling from an insider’s perspective. He thinks that what most of the media represent about this place to the outside world doesn’t show the whole picture.“What they see up here, and what they do with their cameras…. Like during whaling season, they only focus on the blood; they only focus on what they see as bad,” Hopson said. “And me being a native kid in this community, I feel like I’ll bring out what I see, traditionally.”Hopson says that after high school, he hopes to get his bachelor’s degree in either film or journalism so he can be part of shaping the stories that are told about the place he calls home.last_img read more

Rapid turnon of a nuclear transient observed by astronomers
Rapid turnon of a nuclear transient observed by astronomers

first_imgAn international team of astronomers has observed the peculiar activity of a nuclear transient event known as PS1-13cbe. The transient, which occurred in the nucleus of the galaxy SDSS J222153.87+003054.2, experienced a rapid flare-up lasting about 70 days.

Citation: Rapid ‘turn-on’ of a nuclear transient observed by astronomers (2018, November 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from At a redshift of 0.12355, SDSS J222153.87+003054.2 (or SDSS J2221+0030 for short) is a type 2 Seyfert galaxy. It has a central supermassive black hole (SMBH) with an estimated mass of around 20 million solar masses.In general, Seyfert galaxies host active galactic nuclei (AGN) that produce spectra line emissions from highly ionized gas. Astronomers classify these galaxies as type 1 or 2, depending on the emission lines shown by their spectra.However, observations show that various AGN types are observed in the same object at different epochs of time. One explanation of this phenomenon is that some type 2 Seyfert galaxies are actually type 1 with inactive engines. This suggests that type 2 Seyfert galaxies are an evolved version of the type 1.Some AGNs showcase X-ray absorption variations, and are thus called “changing-look” AGNs. Furthermore, in some Seyfert galaxies, the broad emission lines disappear and, while in others broad emission lines appear, what astronomers describe as a “turn-on” of an AGN. So far, the most rapid “turn-ons” observed last less than one year.Now, a team of researchers led by Reza Katebi of Ohio University reports a rapid “turn-on” of the nuclear transient PS1-13cbe in the nucleus of the galaxy SDSS J2221+0030. PS1-13cbe was detected on July 9, 2013 in the Pan-STARRS1 (PS1) sky survey. Additional observations of this transient and its host galaxy, that led to the new findings, were conducted by the team using NASA’s Swift spacecraft, the 6.5 m Magellan Clay telescope and the 2.4 m Hiltner telescope.According to the paper, PS1-13cbe brightened in the course of about 70 days and reached a peak total optical luminosity of approximately 10.6 tredecillion erg/s, while its temperature roughly stayed constant. Moreover, this rapid “turn-on” of PS1-13cbe was accompanied by the appearance of broad Balmer lines and hence a transition to a type 1 Seyfert galaxy.”At the time of the outburst, the galaxy changed type to a Seyfert 1 as broad Hα and Hβ appeared and the continuum brightened in the spectrum taken with LDSS3 +57 days after the peak and then changed its type back to a Seyfert 2 as the broad Hα and Hβ disappeared in the spectrum taken with OSMOS 2 years later and did not reappear in spectra taken three and four years after the outburst,” the researchers wrote in the paper.The observations allowed Katebi’s team to conclude that PS1-13cbe is a “changing-look” AGN that has been powered by instabilities in the accretion disk. They added that the “turn-on” of this AGN is among the shortest observed in a “changing look” active galactic nuclei.last_img read more

Kangana to don Khadi on silver screen in Manikarnika

first_imgAfter dressing up officials in several government offices, Khadi is now making its way to silver screen. Kangana Ranaut, who is playing the lead role in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, would showcase the Queen’s love for country’s heritage fabric Khadi in this upcoming Indian epic biographical film. And for the promotion of this signature fabric, the attire of the lead casts of this movie is being sponsored by Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC). Also Read – Add new books to your shelfExpressing pride and pleasure for being a part in the renewal of India’s spirit of Independence, KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena said that Rani Laxmibai is one of the fascinating women in terms of what she had done in her life. “Khadi is connected to India’s voice of Independence since time immemorial. But very few people know that some seven decades before Gandhiji’s tryst with Charkha, a girl born in Varanasi as Manikarnika, not only mastered reading the Vedas and Puranas, but also learned weaving before being the Queen of Jhansi,” he said. Speaking further he mentioned, “It is a morale booster in terms of aggressive marketing and promotion strategy for KVIC that she (Kangana Ranaut as Rani Laxmibai) would be spinning the wheel in this movie. It would once again prove that prior to British rule in India, Khadi was flourishing in our country and later it was Charkha that drove the Britishers away from India.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIt may be noted here that sponsored by Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), the costume line for the film shall be designed by ace designer Neeta Lulla. Lulla has already picked up fabric costing around Rs 26 lakh from KVIC. According to Chairman VK Saxena, the fabric being used for the film includes a mixed bag of silk, cotton, muslin and some wool too. Impressed by the fabric, Lulla is already making plans to use the desi fabric in her personal line too. “I feel Khadi exemplifies a lot of character. I am already in conversation with KVIC to launch a capsule collection worldwide which will be retailed across various outlets to ensure the eco-friendly fabric resonates with the millennial generation,” she said.On the other hand, Kamal Jain, the producer of the movie, said that the entire unit was proud to associate with KVIC and applauded their contribution in providing the best range of Khadi that had added immensely to the range of costumes in the film. “The shooting of the film is underway and these unique costumes play a vital role in revitalizing the glorious history of India,” he said.last_img read more

iPad mini 5 Rumors Release Date Price and More
iPad mini 5 Rumors Release Date Price and More

first_imgWhile Apple’s iPad Pro and standard iPad both got recent refreshes, we haven’t seen a new iPad mini since 2015’s iPad mini 4. Apple’s smallest iOS tablet is long overdue for a revamp, and based on recent rumors, it could be coming early this year.Here’s everything we’ve heard about the iPad mini 5, including its expected release date, possible specs and rumored design.iPad mini 5 release date: When is it coming out?The most recent report we’ve heard about the iPad mini 5 pegs it for an early 2019 release. Citing industry sources, Taiwanese news outlet Digitimes claims that Apple may launch both a new iPad mini as well as a refreshed entry-level iPad in the first half of this year.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best? Amazon Fire 7 vs Walmart Onn02:45关闭选项Automated Captions – en-USAutomated Captions – en-USAutomated Captions – en-US facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接已复制直播00:0003:4603:46 Apple held a special, education-focused event in March 2018 to reveal the latest 9.7-inch iPad; it’s possible that the company could hold a similar showcase this spring to unveil the new iPad mini.In late January 2019, developer Steve Troughton-Smith showed off a piece of iOS 12.2 code that seems to reference four new iPad models, adding further credence to the possibility of a new iPad mini hitting this year.iPad mini 5 specs: The upgrades to expectThe iPad mini 4’s specs are starting to show their age, as the 2015 tablet packs Apple’s A8 processor; a 7.9-inch, 2048 x 1536 display; an 8MP rear camera with a 1.2MP front shooter; 128GB of storage; and a Touch ID home button.At the very least, we expect Apple to upgrade the iPad mini’s CPU to the new A12 Bionic processor, which launched in fall 2018 with the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. We could potentially see Apple bump up the rear camera to a 12MP shooter to match that of the latest iPhones, as well as a possible storage bump to 256GB. However, it’s worth noting that the latest 9.7-inch iPad starts with just 32GB of storage.iPad mini 5 design: What will Apple change?When Apple refreshed its basic 9.7-inch iPad in 2018, it kept the same core design as previous years — complete with the same chunky bezels and physical Touch ID home button. We could see something similar for the mini 4, though it would be very surprising to see Apple release any device with thick bezels in 2019.Images of the alleged tablet were posted on Twitter by Apple leaker Mr.white in January 2019. They show only the device’s back panel with Apple’s signature gold finish; though, if the images are real, they seem to hint that the mini 5 will largely retain the 4’s design. The leaked images also suggest that the iPad mini will keep its usual volume rocker, headphone jack and power button.In February 2019, reputable leaker @OnLeaks claimed to have gotten his hands on an alleged CAD drawing of the iPad mini 5, which he says confirms the rumors of the latest iPad mini being a “specs bump only.” He did, however, note that the tablet’s microphone will now be located on the center of the upper back panel.MORE: Kids Tablets to Buy (or Avoid)We’d like to see Apple bring some of the 2018 iPad Pro’s design sensibilities to the latest mini. The refreshed Pros feature much thinner bezels and Face ID in place of a home button, giving them the same sleek design language as the latest iPhones. Given that Apple’s traditional home button is all but extinct, we especially hope to see the mini 5 adopt at least some of the more modern sensibilities of the company’s newer iOS devices.iPad mini 5 price: How much will it cost?The iPad mini 4 currently starts at $399 for the Wi-Fi model and $529 for a cellular-enabled model. We expect a similar pricing model for the mini 5, barring any significant design upgrades that would warrant a higher price.However, Apple’s bigger and more powerful 9.7-inch iPad from 2018 is cheaper than the mini 4, at $329. Could Apple make the next iPad mini even cheaper than that to make it a compelling budget option? We’ll have to wait and see.OutlookIf the iPad mini 5 is indeed happening, all signs point to it being a subtle refresh of 2015’s iPad mini 4. If you already own a mini 4, you’re probably safe to stick with it for a few more years, unless you really want the added power bump of Apple’s latest processors.However, if you’ve yet to dive into the iPad ecosystem and prefer your tablets on the small side, you might want to wait a few months to see what Apple has in store.Credit: Laptop MagApple iPad 9.7-inch (2018) – Full Review New iPad Pro Benchmarked: This Blows Away Windows PCsGoogle Should Be Ashamed of Gmail on iPad Michael Andronico, Managing Editor on A devout gamer and tech enthusiast, Mike Andronico joined the Laptop team in July 2013.
