The debate ends - Siphons work due to gravity and not atmospheric pressure

knwny (2940129) writes | 15 minutes ago


knwny (2940129) writes "Peeved by the widespread misconception that siphons work because of atmospheric pressure, physics lecturer Dr. Stephen Hughes, wrote a mail to the prestigious Oxford English Dictionary(OED) pointing out the error. To back his claim, Dr.Hughes tested a siphon inside a hypobaric chamber to check if changes in atmospheric pressure had any effect on the siphon and demonstrated that gravity and not atmospheric pressure was the driving principle. The paper detailing his experiment was published in Nature. The OED spokesperson responded saying that his suggestions would be taken into account during the next rewrite."

FTC Approves Tesla's Direct Sales Model

cartechboy (2660665) writes | 9 hours ago


cartechboy (2660665) writes "We've all read about Tesla and the ongoing battles its having with different dealer associations. Basically, dealer associations aren't too pleased about the Silicon Valley startup's direct sales model. Today the FTC has had made a statement on the matter and it's actually in favor of Tesla's direct sales model. "In this case and others, many state and local regulators have eliminated the direct purchasing option for consumers, by taking steps to protect existing middlemen from new competition. We believe this is bad policy for a number of reasons," wrote Andy Gavil, Debbie Feinstein, and Marty Gaynor in the FTC's "Who decides how consumers should shop?" posting to the Competition Matters blog. The FTC appears to take issue not with those laws, but with how they're being used, and with the direct-sales bans being passed in several states. Now the only real question is how long will it be before Tesla prevails in all states?"

Durable, Wearable Video Recording Devices

AcesDnied (2542270) writes | 47 minutes ago


AcesDnied (2542270) writes "I'm curious as to what kind of video equipment people are using in semi hazardous (at least to electronic equipment) environments.

I'm a computer tech by day, but I'm also an apprentice at a metal shop, learning how to do metal shaping and metal finishing. I'd like to record some of the stuff I'm learning to do, so I can post it on our website or YouTube. The only problem is most of the time hot metal sparks and fine stone / metal dust are flying or floating through the air.

I've had a few people suggest a GoPro camera over Google Glass because of price. I'm wondering what other recording devices might be out there, and what kind of adaptations could be made to accommodate the equipment to provide the most longevity out of what you guys might have to suggest."

iPad "Mom" Tattoo, Good or Bad Idea?

theodp (442580) writes | 1 hour ago


theodp (442580) writes "On Tuesday, in an Earth Day commercial narrated by CEO Tim Cook, Apple pledged "to do everything we can to keep our products out of landfills." So it's kind of surprising that on Thursday, Apple sent out a Mother's Day e-mail blast encouraging shoppers to permanently personalize their Apple products with engraved messages — e.g. Property of Mom. (Hands off, Dad.). "With free custom engraving," Apple suggested, "Mom will love her iPad even more." Perhaps, but will others want it as much when Mom is ready to dump it? You probably think it'd be crazy to tattoo "Mom" on your arm — is it a good idea to "tattoo" it on an iPad?"
