    Not like layman’s notion, biotechnology isn’t just about working in the laboratory wearing white lab coat and making ready medicines to enhance the standard of life. From this point on, even greater problems have emerged: the affect of financial progress on ecosystems and local weather change (each issues that essentially threaten the existence of all humans). The German sociologist Ulrich Beck, who solely lately handed away, talked about this as a world risk society ”. He argued that we had institutionalised the manufacturing of social danger by means of our contemporary industrial innovation methods. The increasing use of computers, robotics, and virtual reality depend upon know-how to make a “consumer-friendly” environment. It also can understand a considerable amount of knowledge and images and to “naturally” work together with computers and machines.

    A society that advances according to the above presuppositions – and particularly in line with the illogical conclusion – …

  • A Super Sensitive Dark-Matter Search Yields Strange Results

    As the WIMP search kept coming up empty, XENON scientists realized several years ago that they could use their experiment to search for other kinds of unknown particles that might pass through the detector: particles that bang into an electron rather than a xenon nucleus.

    They used to treat these “electronic recoils” as background noise, and indeed many of these events are caused by mundane sources such as radioactive lead and krypton isotopes. But after making improvements to dramatically reduce their background contaminations over the years, the researchers found that they could look for signals in the low-level noise.

    In their new analysis, the physicists examined electronic recoils in the first year’s worth of XENON1T data. They expected to see roughly 232 of these recoils, caused by known sources of background contamination. But the experiment saw 285—a surplus of 53 that signifies an unaccounted-for source.

    The team kept the finding

  • The 10 best shows on Hulu to delight and entertain you

    Hulu has come a long way since its initial launch in 2007 and is now one of the premier streaming services. Its current lineup of movies is impressive, including the 2020 Academy Award Best Picture winner Parasite, but let’s not forget that the service also has Emmy and Golden Globe–winning original television shows and a massive library of content from networks.

    Now that the service’s interface has been updated to make it easier to use, here are some of the best original and non-original shows on Hulu — without needing to buy any of its add-on services like Hulu with Showtime, Hulu with HBO, or Hulu with Starz.

    1. The Great

    For history nerds with a sense of humor…

    Does The Great faithfully follow the true story of Catherine the Great’s infamous coup against her husband Tsar Peter III? No. Is it a hilarious, wacky interpretation of Catherine’s story

  • First ARM Macs will be MacBook Pros and an all-new iMac: report

    Apple is set to unveil its long-awaited Mac transition from Intel to ARM processors today at its online WWDC 2020 keynote, and analyst Ming-chi Kuo has issued his predictions for the first Macs that will use the new Apple-designed processors. His research note was reported on by MacRumors, 9to5Mac, and AppleInsider.

    First of all, Kuo says the last new Intel-based Mac ever will be a brand new iMac design with thinner bezels and a 24-inch display. This iMac is said to be planned for a release in Q3 2020, but an ARM version will follow it in the first quarter of next year.

    The first ARM Mac is likely to be a 13-inch MacBook Pro in Q4 2020 or Q1 2021, Kuo says; the form factor is believed to be similar to the current model. Production of the Intel version will reportedly cease once the ARM model
