    Are YOU Hurting YOUR WEBSITE?

    Okay, so starting from the top: one of the key issues that we’re seeing with most of our clients who start, like, they reach out to us, they share their problems, is that in most cases most of the issues they have are self-induced. In ninety-nine percent of cases they somehow do that to themselves and our goal is to help them fix that. So that’s one. Some of the examples: First of all – not really understanding technology. There is a massive hype to use JavaScript frameworks recently and a lot of CTOs, a lot of CEOs, even they want to go with Angular, they want to go with…

They say that if you look hard enough, you can find just about anything you want on the internet- and if it’s not on the internet, then it’s probably either on the dark web or the deep web. This was where savvy internet users could access the now infamous Silk Road internet marketplace- described as the eBay of vice, Silk Road connected buyers and sellers who were interested in exchanging everything from weapons to drugs, and quite a few things in…

    Why You Should Never Visit The Dark Web

    This episode is brought to you by Dashlane; Try Dashlane Premium free for 30 days at www.dashlane.com/infographics and never forget another password and keep all your online accounts secure! As we’ve said in previous shows, not everyone using the dark web is doing something criminal. In some ways this corner of the Internet gets a bad name, and research has shown that many of the darkest things supposedly happening in the dark web have been exaggerated. That said, it’s well known that many people, mainly the younger generation, go there to buy illegal substances that they may have otherwise procured on the street. It’s also well known that people with…

    Bacteria (Updated)

    Captions are on! Click CC at bottom right to turn off. When I was a little kid, my parents would let me take my favorite set of dinosaurs into the tub…probably to persuade me into taking a bath. I remember my dinosaurs well! In fact, I used to know all of my dinosaurs. I had epic dinosaur battles. Sometimes my sister would play with them, too…just…a little differently. Anyway, I remember that one day, unfortunately, my favorite stegosaurus lost his head. I mean, literally, it just popped off. And while I was determined to get my parents to fix it, we discovered that there was stuff growing in the toy.…

    Captions are on! To turn off, click the CC button at bottom right. Follow the amoebas on Twitter (@AmoebaSisters) and Facebook! There are a lot of animals that I have always thought are cool. Salmon, hairless guinea pigs, iguanas…silkie bantam chickens… But one day in my 7th grade science class, my teacher told us we would get to see one of the most amazing animals ever in class. A hydra! And I have to confess what I imagined in my head…and what actually was reality…was a little different But, I’m kind of used to that. Turns out hydra are pretty cool. Hydra are animals that are very small—a few millimeters…

    Let’s Decide the Future of the Internet Before It’s Decided for Us

    The features of the Internet that we really want to make sure persist, and I don’t count on inertia to do the job here, but these features include the fact that when we’re surfing the web that we’re actually visiting lots of different places. The web of a 1998, and sort of through the past ten years or so, has been one where there’s lots of baskets with eggs all over the place and by just clicking on a link you can visit that new basket and not even feel the burdens of the journey. It could be at a basement in Chappaqua New York the server you’re going to,…

    Dr Lucy Jones talks about the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing at Kingston University

    Hello. My name is Dr Lucy Jones. I am Associate Dean for Kingston University’s newest faculty. The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing. Now, for me, I’m a geneticist at heart. I fascinated by the DNA molecule. The way in which that something so simple can direct everything that we currently know about life, biology and most of the world. Working in a faculty like SEC is really, really exciting. Because it allows me to work alongside, not just other biologists or other molecular scientists but to work alongside people as diverse as civil engineers and mathematicians. For most students who are coming to university, at some point they are…

    Hey Bill Nye, ‘How Will Quantum Mechanics Change the World?’

    Hi Bill. Tom from Western Australia. If quantum entanglement or quantum spookiness can allow us to transmit information instantaneously, that is faster than the speed of light, how do you think this could, dare I say it, change the world? Tom, I love you man. Thanks for the tip of the hat there, the turn a phrase. Well, quantum entanglement changed the world. If this turns out to be a real thing, well, or if we can take advantage of it, it seems to me the first thing that will change is computing. We’ll be able to make computers that work extraordinarily fast. But it carries with it, for me,…

    Why the NSA Wants a Quantum Computer, with Brad Templeton

    Most people know or remember from school that underneath it all reality is not based on billiard balls and things that match our experience in the physical world, but on a system called quantum mechanics. And the rules of quantum mechanics are rather strange and not very intuitive to us and so they don’t act like the higher level rules that we’ve built computers on so far. So there’s a bunch of research to study whether or not you can do things in quantum mechanics that perform computation in ways that we can’t do at the level of mechanical systems or electronic systems that we use. In particular it seems…
