Intel has teamed up with Facebook to offer a new application that uses idle PC processor power for research of social programs aimed at curing diseases and fighting climate change. Intel's "Progress Thru Processors" application will allow Facebook users to donate spare idle computing power to projects including Rosetta@home, Climateprediction.net and Africa@home. "The goal of this project is to bring about positive change by combining the power of social networking on Facebook with the life...

Average global temperatures for 2008 should come close to 14.3C, the coolest since 2000 and 0.14C below the average temperature for 2001-07, according to preliminary estimates due for release next week by the Met Office.   However, climate scientists say that doesn't mean that global warming is on the decline."Absolutely not," said Dr Peter Stott of the Met Office's Hadley Centre. "If we are going to understand climate change we need to look at long-term trends," he said...

PARIS (AFP) - Global warming may be twice as bad as expected, according to a new assessment of a commonly-used yardstick of possible carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution. Until now, most computer models of climate change predict that if atmospheric levels of CO2 reach double of the pre-industrial age, the Earth's surface temperature will be between two and five C (3.6-9.0 F) warmer when compared with 1990 levels. But a study published Thursday in the British science journal Nature suggests that...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
